Soumya Srivastava, who reviews Hollywood films for HT, is looking forward to the following: Unlike the previous three films, this one will not see George Clooney, Matt Damon or Brad Pitt in the lead but similar, very talented female actors.
For too long, we have relied on superhero films for our monthly dose of awesome, and quite frankly, the CGI monsters and the uncaring destruction of New York is getting boring now. Maybe a slick heist movie could bring a fresh change. It had the same innocence, bravery and the perseverance to fight against evil with friendships and empathy that we adored in the original Harry Potter films.
So far, we only have a cast photo and not even a trailer to really know what to expect from the film. However, considering our excitement over all things from the Potterverse, we will line up outside the theatre for the first show. Sweta Kaushalwho reviews Bollywood films for HT, is looking forward to the following: Richa plays Paro and Aditi essays the role of Chandramukhi aka Chandni in the film.

Prahlada abandoned his father; Vibhishana left his brother Ravana; Bharata deserted his stepmother; Bali forsook even his Guru; the Gopasthrees, the women of Vraja, disowned their husbands to get to their Krishna.
Their lives were all the happier for having done so. The relation with God and the love of God are the only elements that are true and eternal; all other relationships are unreal and temporary". Meera met up once again with her Guru and mentor Raidas, who is said to have lived to a ripe age of years. She went into the slums often to be in the satsang of this great teacher. This was the impetus and inspiration behind the many queries and controversies that she raised about Kulam in her songs.
The turning point in Meerabai's life occurred when once Akbar and his court musician Tansen came in disguise to Chittor to hear Meera's devotional and inspiring songs.
Both entered the temple and listened to Meera's soul - stirring songs to their heart's content. Before he departed, he touched the holy feet of Meera and placed a necklace of priceless gems in front of the idol as a present.
Somehow the news reached the KumbhaRana that Akbar had entered the sacred temple in disguise, touched the feet of Meerabai and even presented her a necklace. The Rana became furious. He told Meerabai, "Drown yourself in the river and never show your face to the world in future.

You have brought great disgrace on my family". Meerabai obeyed the words of King. She proceeded to the river to drown herself. The names of the Lord "Govinda, Giridhari, Gopala" were always on her lips. She sang and danced in ecstasy on her way to the river.
When she raised her feet from the ground, a hand from behind grasped her and embraced her. She turned behind and saw her beloved Giridhari. She fainted on him. After a few minutes she opened her eyes. Lord Krishna smiled and gently whispered: You are absolutely free. You are and have always been mine. On her way, many ladies, children and devotees received her with great hospitality.
She reached Brindavan or Vrindaban. It was at Brindavan that she again met and was inspired by Sant Raidas. She went about Brindavan doing Oonchavritti and worshipped in the Govinda Mandir which has since become famous and is now a great place of pilgrimage for devotees from all over the world. A repentant Kumbha came to Vrindavan to see Meera and prayed that he may be forgiven for all his previous wrongs and cruel deeds.
He begged that Meera return to the kingdom and was assume her role as the queen once more. Meera said to Rana that Krishna is only one King and my life belongs to him. The KumbhaRana, for the first time, truly understood Meera's exalted state of mind and prostrated before her in reverence. He then promptly left Vrindavan a changed soul. Jiva Gosain was the head of the Vaishnavites in Brindavan. Meera wanted to have Darshan of Jiva Gosain. He declined to see her.
He sent word to Meera that he would not allow any woman in his presence. Only Giridhar Gopala is Purusha. Today only I have come to know that there is another Purusha besides Krishna in Brindavan". Jiva Gosain was put to shame. He at once went to see Meera and paid her due respects. Meera's fame spread far and wide.
She was immersed in satsang day in and out. At the request of KumbhaRana, Meera returned to Mewar and Kumbha agreed to her request that she would reside in the temple of Krishna but would not restrict her movements and wanderings.
