Mani Kaul was a genre-hopping film-maker whose success came the hard and hard-line intellectual way, via India's so-called "parallel cinema". Like Shyam Benegal, Mrinal Sen and Kumar Shahani but more so, he never espoused the popular route to success, even though he enjoyed critical and some commercial acclaim. Not in the mainstream, not quite an outsider, his oeuvre embraced serious, non-commercial cinema – frequently based on books or dramas – documentary film, especially on musical subjects, and the culturally daring. Sen lauded him simply as "one of the finest film-makers in India."

Outlook As political posturing goes, £920m seems a lot to pay to send a message to government. That is the sum that Vedanta has plunked down for a 10.4 per cent stake in Cairn India, where its bid for outright control has run up against political opposition. Its acquisition of this stake, the company hopes, signals its commitment to the tottering deal, and aims to put a bit of pressure on the Indian political class. But if Vedanta loses this chance to control one of Rajasthan's richest oilfields, it will be because of missteps made months ago.
