    It is not interesting it is rather sad. Its about Russian government's incompetence who failed to acknowledge an explosion which caused a "slight" increase in radiation around the area. Is anyone surprised?

    When a state nuclear energy company first conceded the accident involved nuclear materials — on Saturday, two days after the explosion — the disclosure did not make the evening news on all television channels. Channel One, the main state broadcaster, gave the story just 36 seconds.

    A flurry of murky, misleading reports surfaced, which for some Russians recalled the lethal delays in acknowledging the Chernobyl accident three decades ago, although the radiation release last week was far smaller. Only on Sunday did Russian scientists explain that a small nuclear reactor had malfunctioned.

    “I’m not a critic of the government, but in this situation its behavior is ugly,’’ Dmitry Zhukov posted on a message board for residents of Severodvinsk on Vkontakte, a social networking site similar to Facebook. “We got a mini-Fukushima right beside us and they pretended nothing scary happened.”

    On Saturday, the Russian nuclear energy company Rosatom said in a statement released at 1 a.m. that the accident involved nuclear materials, using language even experts saw as confusing. Its scientists were studying an “isotope power source for a liquid engine unit,” the company said.

    Oh.. and trump tweeted something

    President Trump posted a tweet about the accident Monday evening, writing, “The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia,” adding that the American military has “similar, though more advanced, technology.”

    Five scientists killed in the explosion were buried on Monday. Alexei Likhachev, the head of Rosatom, praised them as the “pride of the atomic sector” at a memorial

    I don't know how much of this is true. But I have heard that there were so many protests from indian muslim communities asking for an independent state and there was a staggering amount of communal riots between Hindus and Muslims at that period.

    Also there is another theory that British was so insecure that India may become more powerful in the future and partition was a part of Britain's divide and rule strategy. But to me latter seems more like a patriotic propaganda. Our history textbooks brushes through these area without giving a definite answer.

    I really enjoyed it so far. The darkish shade of the shots really does it for me. Although I enjoyed every scene, I felt like they are moving the story very slowly. Like, they are stretching out lot of incidents but it doesn't feel like it until we try to recap what happened in the last episode.
    Also, can anyone suggest similar movies/series which are based on disaster events?

    On an entirely different topic. I feel bad for pewdiepie, I mean I understand that he is on top of something and he should be more responsible for his content. But, This is the second time he has been mentioned in something horrible like this. Imagine how devastating it can be. I have been watching his videos for over a year now, I don't think he intentionally wanted to promote any of alt-right personalities or ideologies he has been accused of promoting. Again, I do think he should be more careful with his content. But his edginess is what I like about him.

    This is not Bollywood this is mollywood. Bollywood is hindi based film industry which is spoken mostly in north indian states. Our states are formed based on linguistic differences so in south india neighboring states speak different languages. So in kerala (where this movie is based on) people speak Malayalam so our film industry is called mollywood.

    I got a little side tracked here,sorry. To answer your question, I don't really watch Bollywood movie that often so I don't know what your perception is when it comes indian movies. But, I tell you what.. mollywood makes really good thrillers (unfortunately highest grossing ones are not up to the mark in my opinion). If you are interested in mollywood thrillers checkout Angamaly diaries it is a gangster movie which I think captured the real essence of our culture.

    This movie is based on a fatal virus(nipah) spreading happened in my state last year. From the trailer I think the movie has captured the intensity of the situation very well. If anybody wants to know more about what happened check out this this post on reddit. Subtitles on the trailer is pretty accurate if anybody is concerned.
