Interview with Screenwriter Madhu R (Death Offers Life – last moments of Vincent Van Gogh)

Death Offers Life – last moments of Vincent Van Gogh @ FEEDBACK Toronto Comedy Film & Screenplay Festival.

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

1. What is your screenplay about?

My screenplay deals with the fictional account of the last moments of Vincent Van Gogh who was a failed artist during his lifetime.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Experimental/ drama/ short narrative/ fantasy etc

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

Van Gogh was a pathetic figure in his lifetime. Hunger and insanity drove him to suicide. Post his death there was a great demand for his paintings. Fortune which evaded him blessed the holders of his paintings. He was able to sell only one painting when he was alive. He drew paintings of his landlady and his doctor as he had no money to pay them. The purpose of this screenplay is to give him a graceful exit from life. Van Gogh who was crushed by Life embraces Death gracefully. Inorder to present this view I thought…

Beef ban

Beef πŸ„ Ban

When you ban beef
Give an alternative for free
I buy beef with my money that i earn
If you think that i will buy the alternative with my money
Then you should replace my brain
Simple washing is not enough.

The Thinker

Why does the thinker always sits?
Reason: he has no clothes.
How can he walk naked?
Ashamed, he sits and thinks…
The only thing possible for an idle man.
Confirming present day’s slogan:
No work-more pay-more thinking.

A voice came down from the mountains
For some it was a lark’s sweet song
For some it was a vulture’s shriek
For some it never mattered.

People who thought it was a lark
Fell into a trance
Their hardships lightened
Their sleeps undisturbed
Sweetened with dreams.

People who heard it as a vulture’s shriek
Felt more than one stab in their conscience
Sleep deprived they looked like zombies
For all their nefarious actions visited them
Asking for a space in their beds each night.

Unable to bear they ganged up
All the crooks and murderers
Mostly politicians ruling and opposition
Brew a plan, the voice has to be silenced
Once and for all.

Their men went up the mountains
Found the voice and stopped it
The lords then slept well
The listeners of the lark missed it
The ones who never heard it lost nothing.

Thirty silver coins @ votes?

Once upon a time in the West
There lived a cow
Eulogized by many as holy.
One day she looked and walked East.
Singing paeans thousands followed her
But the holy one lost her way
And inadvertently reached North East
Where unfortunately she became unholy
And ended up as beef on a dining table.
The followers aghast, without words
But returned happily, handful of votes
Like Judas who sold Christ for 30 silver coins.


The coming year may be happy or not
But we are doomed to say Happy New Year
To all, even to the dictator of North Korea or
To the Pak Prime Minister.

The millipede and the centipede not crawled but
Went for a walk on New Year Eve
The centipede gave a hundred new year wishes
While the millipede gave a thousand ones
To each other and parted happily
Not knowing that
Man had lost the Math
In counting their legs.

Dogs’ Nation?

PM visits DMK house
Judge acquits 2G scam accused
Congress celebrates verdict
We show patriotism standing in cinema halls
While the soldier in the border waits for the enemy’s bullets
Is this enough my countrymen
While our country is going to the dogs?

Gujarat – feather or thorn?

BJP as expected did it, but how:

1. The CEC who acted like an ardent BJP member helped by NOT announcing the poll date so that the state and central govt. could go on announcing indefinite welfare measures.
2. The Pak lies told by Modi.
3. The holy ass named Mani Iyer, is he Congress or BJP?

The majority has come down to just 7 seats. Modi and Amit nearly got a heart attack yesterday. Modi has been shot in one leg and he would have to stand on the other till 2019. No more hardcore welfare measures, the stupid linking of aadhaar with even dead bodies may go, the budget 2019 will be a populist one, the IT dept. may be reigned in.

In spite of all this if the women of India go for a young leader Modi can go to the Himalayas and would anybody miss him?
