Rediff Entertains

Looks like that opening Rediff had for fact checkers has not been filled yet. Today, while reporting on Adoor Gopalakrishnan being awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke award, Rediff Entertainment Bureau wrote

A three-time National Award winner and a Padma Shri, some of Adoor’s most famous films include Swayamvaram, Chemmeen, Elipathayam and Nizhalkuthu.[Phalke award for Adoor]

Chemmeen, based on a novel by Thakazhi Shivashankara Pillai was made by Ramu Kariat. The film had an Adoor connection, but it was the actress Adoor Bhavani.

  1. JK, looks like they do have a fact checker — check the facts by checking the comments.
    They have corrected the mistake after the fact was pointed to them (in the comments).

  2. a small typo. i meant “they do have a fact checker — *who checks* the facts by checking the comments”
    i know you got the point, but still, but did not want to sound as if i am asking you to check the facts 🙂
