  1. Ram Gopal Verma took the internet by storm when he announced his upcoming project with adult star Mia Malkova. Actually, it was Mia herself who made this announcement on social media. (We probably might have not believed it if RGV announced it himself.) Indian film maker Ram Gopal Varma shot a video with me in Europe titled GOD , *** and TRUTH I will be the 2nd adult star after @SunnyLeone to be shot by an Indian feature film maker @Rgvzoomin pic.twitter.com/0lfaipKhAA — Mia Malkova (@MiaMalkova) January 11, 2018 While RGV is well known for pushing the boundaries and coming up with projects that no other Indian director would even think of doing, this is a little too, umm… different? Talking about the film, he wrote in a Facebook post, “GOD, *** and TRUTH is neither a film, nor a short film nor a series ...it's about Mia Malkova speaking about *** and how much it means to her. I, both as a person and as a film maker very strongly believe in the underlying depth of what GOD ,*** and TRUTH truly represents.” The description of the film, the poster and stills have definitely got us hooked but after we saw the trailer, we are a little confused. © Instagram Erotic visuals combined with philosophy don't exactly make the best of combination. While Mia makes love to herself in the trailer, we also get to see some quotes about *** from popular personalities which are apparently the inspiration behind the film. © RGV Talkies All of this just makes us wonder 'What exactly is the intention behind this whole thing?' Nevertheless, we think it might just help you fight the midweek blues. Have a look at the trailer and judge for yourself: If the trailer has got you excited, then here's some good news. You don't have to wait much longer as the final full film will be released on Malkova's Vimeo channel on 26th January.
  2. A few days ago, Jio announced its own cryptocurrency, the JioCoin, to be launched in the market. Since then, there has been a debate going on among market analysts to see if this cryptocurrency will have a future or not. Actually, everybody is trying to get their hands on these 'get rich easy' cryptocurrencies since Bitcoin is all the rage and is serving as a valuable asset, these days. Though the government of India has cautioned against trading and investing in Bitcoin and similar currencies, there have been unsubstantiated rumors about the government evaluating the possibility of introducing its own digital currency. FYI, one of the world's leading cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, is being traded in India at a much higher rate than the international market. The 'Rupee Coin' is the latest cryptocurrency riding on this increased interest and enthusiasm. The origin of 'Rupee Coin' © YourStory The Rupee coin is not the fiat currency that is backed and issued by a number of Asian countries, including India. It is, a decentralized, open-source blockchain cryptocurrency coin which was started by Adam Syed in 2016. The Rupee Coin is based on a reliable Litecoin source code and is presently available on several exchanges. It is traded under the symbol RUP and now there are roughly 22 million Rupee coins in circulation. Adam Syed has a strong background in blockchain technology and software development. He believes that blockchain can power transformation across sectors – from asset management to exchanges and wallets to healthcare to banking. Adam says, “When I think about the future of technology, I see blockchain-based platforms, products, and services used by the masses. The blockchain is truly Internet 2.0. However, one blockchain solution, in particular, has stuck with me – cryptocurrency.” He adds, “The opportunities that decentralized cryptocurrencies bring excites me. I wanted a cryptocurrency that resonated with the place I call home – India – as well as with the larger South Asian market.” Its potential connection with South Asia. © YourStory The “Rupee” has been a powerful brand with 2600 years of history in South Asia where it originated in India in 6th century B.C. The fiat currency soon became the symbol of trade for the region. Today, it is traded in India, Pakistan, Indonesia, the Maldives, Mauritius, Nepal, Seychelles and Sri Lanka. The currency basically holds a strong emotional appeal for people belonging to the region and that is why it is gaining a lot of interest from the South Asian community based in the United States, Europe, and across the world. A number of merchants in the US and Canada are particularly excited about the Rupee Coin and want to accept it as payment for transactions as soon as the Rupee Coin mobile wallet is ready. Adam explains why the Rupee Coin could thrive in the long run, “The other reason why we have managed to garner interest in that region is that most of the Rupee team in the US and Canada are of South Asian ethnicity. They are rooting for Rupee as an established trade symbol in the cryptocurrency world because for many of them Rupee is an extension of their identity.” So how will the Rupee Coin be easier to trade when there are other cryptocurrencies circulating in the market? © BTC Upload The Rupee Coin is sourced from LiteCoin, and thus, it is based on the Scrypt mining algorithm. Laypersons can't mine Rupee with a GPU as it can't compete with the power of ASIC mining. The Rupee team is working on changing the mining algorithm from Scrypt to Equihash so that everyone can mine with readily available computing power. This will ensure that the Rupee Coin is decentralized. Adam says, “Today, some leading cryptocurrencies are heavily mined, making it difficult for regular investors (to mine them). Additionally, the transaction fees are too high, making it unaffordable. Thus many big cryptocurrencies have become more like digital assets, and less usable.” As of now, the Rupee Coin is being traded on two exchanges – coinexchange.io and cryptopia.co.nz. Both of these are mid-level exchanges and it has already applied to bigger exchanges like Bittrex, and Poloniex. It is one of the best cryptos to invest in as per TOKEN AI – an Artificial Intelligence-based cryptocurrency trading platform. Europe's NEXT has listed RUP as one of its initial coins for trade, along with Bitcoin and Litecoin. The team is working towards bringing it in trading exchanges in India as well and hopes to be listed soon. Can Rupeebase.com become the potential facilitator for business in South Asia? Their team is 10 members strong including Adam Syed who wants to start a portal called Rupeebase.com, which will bring together merchants from countries like India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka, whose fiat currencies are also known as the Rupee. The platform will utilize the Rupee Coin and smart contracts to enable a trustable exchange among users and vendors. Adam concludes by saying, “With smart contracts and cryptocurrencies becoming the next big thing, we believe a platform like Rupeebase.com can revolutionize trade in South Asia, especially India.” Do you know that until August 2017, RUP was trading at 0.004 USD, and now it is almost at 0.3 USD (30 cents)? This is almost a 7500 percent jump in value from what it initially started trading at. The all-time high for the Rupee has been 0.94 USD. Do you think the Rupee Coin will thrive and are you willing to put your money in it? You can see more about it here.
  3. If you're dating the deadliest fire sign out of all the zodiacs then let us wish you boatloads of luck! Dating a Sagittarius woman is like walking a thin rope and if you ever fall you'd probably land on thin ice . Okay, it isn't so bad and if you're in love with a Sagittarius girl you need to understand that love is an eternal mystery for her. It's a little tough to break her exterior to get the mush out but if you do manage to do that, it's a lot of fun thereon. A Sagittarius girl loves looking for a man who can match up to her mental and physical strength and her insatiable desire for a lifetime of adventure. To many qualifications needed for the job? Well, I promise once you qualify, you'll be the happiest man alive. Independent and trustworthy, she's going to make it hard for you to ever forget her. Truth And Only The Truth Sagittarius women cannot handle lies. That's the first thing to remember if you're out to date one. Her truth is based on a deep understanding of how the world works and not frivolous encounters and conversations. She's extremely open minded to conversations that range from philosophy to religion and if she's inquisitive about something she'll get to the bottom of it. She's extremely curious about everything and if she catches you lying even about the simplest of things, God bless your soul! © Facebook/Taylor Swift Travel Freak This woman loves packing her bags and leaving for the unknown. She will also expect her man, or at least try and find a man who loves doing the same. Adventure is literally her adrenaline in life and no destination is ever too dangerous or boring for her. Pro tip: if you ever want to strike up a conversation with a Sagittarius woman, ask her about the last place she travelled to and that will get her going, explaining every little escapade she's had in life. If you're already dating a Sagittarian, then definitely take as many trips as you can with her. © Britney Spears Papa Don't Preach One thing you will always get in a relationship with a Sagittarian is ample space and time. She loves her space and thinks it to be sacrosanct and she will never compromise on it, no matter what. If she has a circle of friends, she may not want you in it, when she's around them because for her time out means a good amount of mental space from her significant other too. This does not mean she's aloof or callous about the person she's in love with. It simply means she loves her independence and wants her relationship to grow organically and healthily. The biggest mistake you can make though is try and restrict her and make her do things your way. She'll break away and never want to be with you again! © Facebook/Nicki Minaj On Your Face Her frank and outspoken nature has her misunderstood most times because sometimes in a social gathering it may be uncalled for. But if she doesn't like something, there is no stopping her from voicing it out. There isn't any malice in her intent, she just likes to call a spade a spade. This also makes her suffer from a bad foot in mouth disease! You'll see soon enough! © Viral Bhayani Easy Going Is In Her Blood She has no hang ups with the way she dresses and she believes in minimalism. On a regular day you'll find her hanging out in baggy denims or sportswear, sans makeup and accessories. She thinks that these adornments hide the 'real' her. Her simple, Bohemian ways are quite endearing indeed! © Viral Bhayani The *** Is On Fire A Sagittarius woman sets everything on fire, especially in bed. Although intellectual stimulation turns her on more than physical contact, she's a fireball in bed, once she opens up to you. Self reliant and confident, you will find a sensual animal in her who is always thrilled at the idea of making love and sees it as an adventure and if she's head over heels in love with you, she's up for doing just about anything between the sheets. So you need to be quite creative in order to give her what she wants and if you're bold and brainy, you're already there! © Viral Bhayani There isn't one dull day with this one so if you already have her, you're one lucky bloke, if you don't, well then what are you waiting for?
  4. Did you know that everything we learn is actually stored in our brain, and the brain can't store information if it doesn't physically change in some (usually routine) way? That means that the connections between the neurons in our brains should be changing systematically. This is known as rewiring your brain for the output you want out of it. To actually tap that side of yourself, you will need to sharpen your brain with various helpful activities. You yourself possess the power to improve your brain's capability through mental training that will impact your overall performance. Here is a list of such activities which will help you achieve success. 1. Practice brain aerobics. © Daily Health Post Practice makes perfect and the same goes for our brain when we regularly practice something that creates new neural patterns. The more the connections, the better the chances of your success will be. You can play chess, sudoku, crossword puzzles and any such activity that requires deep thinking. Most successful people allot at least 15 to 30 minutes to any activity that requires thinking. You should do the same. This is what billionaire investor Mark Cuban has to say on this subject, "What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur? It takes a willingness to learn, to be able to focus, to absorb information, and to always realize that business is a 24/7 job…" Just like you work on physical activities to keep your body in shape so you should do to keep your brain in a healthy shape to deliver desired results 2. Look for fresh ideas. © SlideShare If you want a new neural connection to form, you will need more new activities to always keep it fresh. Any new kind of information that will help you achieve your goals will create a database in your brain which can be accessed anytime, as required. For example,if you are interested in tennis then why not take some lessons and track your progress? You were interested in something challenging and the fact that you finally did it will ultimately strengthen your brain muscles and the belief to be successful in any field. 3. Visualize your future self © RichifyLife Have you heard about the visualization technique? It could be based on your memory of the past or it could be as simple as imagining yourself in a certain situation in future. Here, we are talking about the latter. While doing so, you will attract the needed energy to make that vision a reality. If you aspire to be a millionaire by the end of 2019, you should imagine that kind of a lifestyle, your priorities, your schedule, the kind of people you will meet and the attitude you will have. So, the next time you feel a lack of motivation, visualise yourself in that situation and see if you want that outcome or not and then act on it. 4. Focus your energy on a long-term goal. © Millo Someone wise once said, “If you don't build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs.” This is the only reality, my friend. You need to decide on what you want from your life and act on it. You should never offer the driving seat to anyone else. If you are feeling demotivated then maybe you need to think about your long-term goals. Even though it is not an easy job. Even rich people who once had money or passion as their biggest dream, now crave philanthropic deeds. So, your goals may vary but they should be big and challenging enough so that they keep you accelerated towards them. If you do that and enjoy the process, then no one can stop you from achieving what you want from life. 5. Shift to an exponential mindset © CodeCondo Below is the simplification of what an exponential mindset looks like. Such kind of a mindset takes thinking to the next level as it aspires for greater things which could be ten times larger than what a normal person would imagine. A person with such a mindset anticipates faster growth as they can already see it coming. They even look at failures as a part of the equation but always end up being ten times ahead, preparing for anything that you have to deal with, positive or not.
  5. After a ruthless winning run in 2017, the rampaging Indian cricket team cut a sorry figure after suffering their first defeat, in what promises to be a challenging year away from home. A 72-run loss against South Africa for the world's no. 1 Test team wasn't the kind of result the Indian fans were hoping for, but many saw coming. A Newlands wicket that heavily favoured the seam bowlers surely fostered compelling cricket - the kind that could match the excitement of ODIs or even T20s. For once, it was great to see the bowlers deciding the game and the batsmen - who usually go hammer and tongs at the ball - ducking for cover. 1st Sunfoil Test India vs South Africa 2018 - Day 4 Fall of Wickets Complete Video Here https://t.co/mPXUYomaOT #INDvSA #IndvsSA #SAvIND #SAvsIND #Philander #ProteaFire #FreedomSeries #SAvIND #SAvsIND #BhuvneshwarKumar #TeamIndia #BBL #NZvPAK #AUSvENG #BBL2017 #IPLRetention #IPL pic.twitter.com/M6HvRIDjI0 — CB007 (@CB007CB) January 9, 2018 In fact, the footage of the fast bowling from both the teams can happily replace adrenaline in hospitals. The fourth day alone featured 18 wickets and six of them went to Vernon Philander who romped to his career-best Test figures before sealing the game for his side. Many feel that the star-studded Indian batting line-up could have done better and they wouldn't be wrong. Apart from Hardik Pandya's breezy knock of 93 runs, none of his teammates were able to post a fifty in Cape Town. In fact, there were ten single-digit scores posted by the Indian batsmen across the two innings. © AP Chasing 208 runs, the Indian batsmen had enough time at their disposal to pull off a crucial win. But, what they didn't have was the patience and skill to negate the fiery bowling attack of Philander, Morne Morkel, Kagiso Rabada who summoned their usual menace in the absence of the injured Dale Steyn. However, despite the loss, the game had plenty of positives for the Virat Kohli brigade. If their batting - which has been India's strong suit for quite some time now - faltered, the sight of a young bowling attack rising to the occasion surely gave the fans something to cheer for. Swinging To Success © AP Ahead of the series, both Kohli and Coach Ravi Shastri reiterated the need of taking 20 wickets in the game to win overseas. And, given India's surprise team selection, the visitors couldn't have started the game any better. Making full use of his increased pace and devious swing, Bhuvneshwar Kumar struck consistently in his first three overs to send the top three South African batsmen back into the hut. A great spell of opening bowling by @BhuviOfficial. One of the most lethal ones I have seen of late. The first session undoubtedly belonged to #TeamIndia. C'mon boys, let's get a few more ;) #SAvIND pic.twitter.com/s9dILKEp23 — Suresh Raina (@ImRaina) January 5, 2018 The likes of Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla were dismissed early on as the Proteas were left reeling at 12/3. While India eventually failed to capitalise on the early breakthrough, it was undeniably the kind of start you'd hope for in an away game. He could have easily notched up a five-for in the first innings, if wasn't for India's shoddy slip fielding. With the opposition batsmen being cautious against him, Bhuvi could only manage the scalps of Keshav Maharaj and Morne Morkel in the second innings. He finished the game with a tally of six wickets at the expense of 120 runs to his name. India might have lost, but Bhuvi's prolific showing promises great things in the next two games. The Devil-May-Care Innings © AP When former greats like Sachin Tendulkar and Lance Klusener tip someone to make a difference, the chances are that they actually do. Kohli's bold decision to include Hardik Pandya had already raised a few eyebrows with many questioning his spot in the playing XI. But, that's nothing new for Pandya. The dashing youngster thrives on challenges and as it turned out, he did make a difference. Hardik Pandya didnt just attack. This was a sensible, cleverly played innings. Has risen many notches as a player. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 6, 2018 With seven wickets gone and just 92 runs on the scoreboard, the Indian cricket team pretty much dead and buried in the first innings. But, just when everyone had given up, Pandya's devil-may-care attitude - reminiscent of AB de Villiers' counter-attack on Day 1 - took the fight to the Proteas in style. The 24-year-old stitched a crucial 99-run partnership with Bhuvi for the eighth wicket to save India early blushes. One's stature as a player increases when one scores overseas and against an attack comprising Steyn, Rabada, Morkel & Philander when everyone else has struggled, Hardik Pandya shows how it is done. Privilege to watch that 93. — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) January 6, 2018 His knock of 93 runs that came off just 95 deliveries included 14 fours and a six. There were upper-cuts, pull shots and brutal down-the-ground strokes which soon got the Proteas on the backfoot. The marauding batsman might have missed his second consecutive Test hundred, but he did his job by propelling India to a face-saving total of 209 runs in the first innings. A Sensational Debut © AP After growing leaps and bounds in limited-overs cricket, Jasprit Bumrah was handed his maiden Test cap in Cape Town. But, just like Pandya, his selection ahead of experienced bowlers like Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav was also criticised. And, just like Pandya, the right-handed seamer proved his naysayers wrong with a brilliant bowling display. The ball that Bumrah bowled to get du Plessis out was one for the ages. Haven't seen an Indian bowler get bounce from a ball as full as that. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 8, 2018 With his maiden scalps being Virat Kohli in the IPL, Steve Smith in ODIs and David Warner in T20Is, there was only one way Bumrah could have further glorified that list - by making AB de Villiers his maiden Test wicket. At a time when AB and Faf du Plessis were busy repairing South Africa's innings, the Indian seamer ran through the defence of the former to give India a pivotal breakthrough in the first innings. Insane ball over in #SAvIND from Bumrah. pic.twitter.com/wYNAycOVZw — Robbie B (@cricketpunting) January 8, 2018 In the second innings, Bumrah improved his figures even further after dismissing the South African captain on an absolute cracker of a delivery. In his very next over, the 24-year-old struck again to dismiss Quinton de Kock before he could do much damage. His third wicket was once again De Villiers who was the last one to go back into the hut for the hosts. Bumrah's bowling impressed everyone, even those who doubted his selection. We won't be surprised if he gets selected for the second Test. Who's Missing Dhoni? © AP Ever since MS Dhoni's retirement from the longest version of the game, the Indian selectors and captain have instilled their faith in Wriddhiman Saha to carry on the duties of a wicket-keeper. His availability in the side provides India the luxury of a decent batsman and good wicket-keeper. While his batting skills might have eluded him in Cape Town, Saha surely made amends with his glove-work behind the stumps. His catch to get rid of Morne Morkel in the second innings made him the first-ever Indian wicket-keeper to effect 10 dismissals in a Test match. Most wicket-keeping dismissals in a #Test match: 11 - J Russell v SA, Johannesburg 1995 11 - ABD v PAK, Johannesburg 2013 10 - B Taylor v IND, Mumbai 1980 10 - A Gilchrist v NZ, Hamilton 2000 10 - @Wriddhipops, #INDvSA, CAPE TOWN 2018*#FreedomSeries #SAvIND #India #Cricket — Sam (@TheCricApp) January 8, 2018 In the process, the 33-year-old also went past Dhoni who held the previous best of a record nine dismissals against Australia in Melbourne in 2014. While all of Saha's dismissals came in the form of catches, Dhoni had one stumping to his credit. Saha also reached a personal milestone of taking five catches in each innings of a Test match for the very first time. This was a match to win but enough shown to say India can match up in the series. Bowlers superb today. @BhuviOfficial with the bat also. — Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) January 8, 2018 Ahead of the highly-anticipated series, there was a lot of chatter around the Indian team being the strongest side to have ever toured the Rainbow Nation. Barring a mediocre batting display, Team India did look like one and came pretty close to pulling off a win in Cape Town. However, the narrow loss also signalled signs of resurgence and a great contest on cards in the remaining Tests.
  6. It's not rocket science to figure how hard getting over a breakup can be. Along with psychological changes, your body goes through intense stress and physiological changes too. It's a tough period and you can sail through it smoothly if you change a few things around. Now, we aren't going to tell you about how to get over a rugged and rough breakup because you already know the basics. You know, like cutting her out, meeting new people, spending time with yourself and some close peeps, distracting yourself with a new activity or interest etc. We're gonna be a little more organic and specific and talk about how to try and get over someone who wasn't right for you, from the start. We all get attracted to the wrong kind of people from time to time and sometimes this attraction can lead to tumultuous time in a relationship. So if you have to take a step out of the ordinary and end things in a proper manner with the kind of woman you're dating, it's not a bad thing at all. No matter how you factored that woman into your life, if she's not good for your being, it's time to end things. Here's how you break-up with the kind of women you're seeing, and do it as smoothly as you can. 1. The First love Of Your Life This one's tricky because you've already fallen for her big time and probably imagined having babies with her too! It's also the first time you've fallen in love or think it's your first time in love, but eventually you begin to see she really isn't the one for you and you wish to end things. It's going to be a lifelong ache but it's better to nip the relationship in the bud than to carry on with the toxicity. This kind of an equation usually stems when you're much younger so it's easier to break away, because you have the luxury of time to heal your wounds. Closing The X-Files: This kind of a girl will take some time to get over because there was a lot invested here. The first thing to do though is crush each and every impulse you may get concerning the relationship. Think of it as the other person or you being too immature to be ready for a full blown relationship. Another thing to think about is, if your brain is stuck on the narrative that the relationship crumbling was your fault, change the narrative around and think of it as something that was meant to be. Maybe you two were not at a stage to be ready for such a big commitment. It will help if you do away with anything that reminds you of her. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 2. Your Supposed 'Soul Mate' The concept of a soul mate is quite ambiguous. What is the right way to determine whether or not someone is your soul mate? Do they wear a sign or give an indication of the fact that their souls will be intertwined with yours in the near future? We highly doubt it. We're not negating the fact that soul mates don't exist but maybe this one wasn't your soul mate? Closing The X-Files: Think of what made you look at her and call her your soul mate. Since you believe in the concept of soul mates so flawlessly, we're sure you're quite the sensitive bloke. The best thing to do to get her out of your system when things turn sour, is to write your feelings down and do a full and open catharsis about the relationship you had with your probable 'soul mate'. Take a walk with a pen and paper and find a spot to sit and write. It could be a coffee shop, a bar, library or even your bed, before going to bed. Research says that writing a thought down at a specific time and space doesn't let that thought spill over to the others times and distract you from daily chores. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3. The' *** Was The Best' Mate So you learnt a lot from her-new perspectives, a greater outlook toward life, some CPR skills and reverse cowgirl but it's time to move on because she's not right for you! Not because the *** is bad. It's the best *** you've had and that's what's eating you up inside. You don't want to be with her but you're so addicted to the *** that you have with her that it's tough to break away. We've all been there my friend. Closing The X-Files: Just think of it this way-the only thing you're missing is her body and the *** you've had. *** is subjective really, so trust us when we tell you that there is no scarcity of finding some delicious *** again, if you give yourself the chance to. Take a clean break. Clean break being the mantra you live with till you get over her. By a clean break we mean close your eyes and think of the things that went wrong and not think about the *** and when you eventually do open your eyes, she'll be long gone and you'll be moving on just fine. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 4. The Intense Hot And Cold Woman The key word for this girl is 'crazy'. She's completely crazy and we're guessing that's what attracted you to her in the first place. She was spontaneous and intense when you first met her and did crazy things you'd probably never seen anyone do. But as time passed by, you realised she's also fighting too many demons and although you do love her spirit, it's completely breaking yours apart. She's probably fighting a lot of her demons and while she's doing that, she's heavily involving you in the process. Case in point- she'll make you an echo of the previous issues she's been battling with, like her relationship with her past boyfriends. Closing The X-Files: You never know how she reacts if you ghost her because she reacts with her impulses so it's best to be a gentleman and be kind. If you're kind and amicable, the exit door isn't too far. Once you're out of that door, your ex is not your problem anymore. Show some compassion, be there to take her though the process, equally and selflessly divide your clothes, music, books, pets etc. and then completely vanish. No texts, no DMs, calls or even social media poking! © Thinkstock/Getty Images 5. The Drama Lover Yes, women who love tons of drama do exist. You probably fell for her because she was overly dramatic with everything, including the relationship. It would have seemed thrilling at first but it eventually got to you didn't it. You envisioned a drama free relationship and ended with a drama queen! Her life is probably boring and predictable for her to create tons of drama around her and thrive on it. Closing The X-Files: This girl is probably in crisis all the time and she thinks the world is out to get her. She finds crisis in every situation-her makeup is over-crisis, Starbucks ran out of her favourite coffee-crisis, she can't find her favourite sweatshirt-crisis. So breaking up with someone like her would be tough because she would convert that to the biggest crisis that has ever hit her. She's dealing with severe victim mentality and you really have to crawl your way away from her. There is no scope of having a sane break up with this one so you have to go cold turkey and shut her out to avoid the drama she would eventually cause due to the breakup. It sounds harsh and brutal but your sanity comes way before her drama, always remember that! © Thinkstock/Getty Images Closing the X-Files is a tough one. There is a lot of emotional flux and unwanted stress you have to conjure and throw away, out of your system but it's also imperative to make the right decision and end things which may pose to be a threat to your sanity. Gauge the person and their reaction and then take the needed, necessary steps!
  7. Everyone's favourite Anil Kapoor is the one and only constant actor in Bollywood. He has been around for almost four decades and is still going strong. While in B-town, actors keep changing in various franchises, Anil Kapoor happens to be the directors' favourite. Be it his equation with the people or his acting, the man knows how to give his best in both. Talking about the 'Race' franchise, the 'Jhakaas' actor is the constant factor and we are not complaining. While people are anticipating for the third instalment of the film, we got hold of some leaked pictures that give us a glimpse of Anil Kapoor's character. The look has gone viral as you spot Anil in a prisoner's avatar. What has left us intrigued is what has detective Robert D'Costa aka R.D. of 'Race 2' done to land up in a prison? From being a detective to a prisoner, that's quite a twist we must say. Exclusive first picture of #AnilKapoor from the sets of #Race3 at Film City, Goregaon. A post shared by DaBangg KhaN (@beinghuman__) on Jan 5, 2018 at 5:32am PST Just recently, Anil was spotted with the white beard and everyone was stunned to see that. But now we know why he got that grandpa beard after all. Anil Kapoor clicked on the sets of Race 3.... . . . . Follow @bollyworld.tellyworld . . . . . #anilkapoor #salmankhan #jacquelinefernandez #bobbydeol #race3 A post shared by Bollywood and Tellywood (@bollyworld.tellyworld) on Jan 5, 2018 at 2:04pm PST Well, Anil is the perfect example of versatility and keeping him intact in the 'Race' franchise is the best decision ever. Even Salman agreed with it after all he welcomed the 61-year-old actor saying, “Inke aane se Race3 ka cast aur ho gaya jhakas”. And there is no one who can say otherwise. In fact, the actor recently also celebrated his birthday onset with Salman Khan and shared the pictures on Twitter. He captioned it saying, “Who says an on-set birthday has to be boring?! My Birthday was made extra special by the @SKFonline & @tipsofficial teams! Thank you all for your love & wishes!” Who says an on-set birthday has to be boring?! My Birthday was made extra special by the @SKFonline & @tipsofficial teams! Thank you all for your love & wishes! pic.twitter.com/R246bYoYpM — Anil Kapoor (@AnilKapoor) December 26, 2017 Apart from Salman and Anil, 'Race 3' also has Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala playing some pivotal roles. The film is expected to hit the screen on Eid 2018. Just recently, even Bobby Deol's transformation for the film created quite a stir on the Internet. As for Anil's look, all we can say is 'Jhakaas!'
  8. If we talk about the most underrated actors in Bollywood, R Madhavan is definitely going to make it to that list. Comparing him to the likes of the Khans or the newbies in the Bollywood industry, Maddy's Bollywood career hasn't exactly been that great. Despite that, he has a loyal fan following who wait with bated breath to see him on the big screen. This time, however, he is taking a different route and is coming to your TV screens. Or on your Amazon Prime account, to be precise. Over the last few weeks, Madhavan has taken to his social media to give us small glimpses of his digital series 'Breathe' with Amazon Prime. Breathe..the next Amazon Prime Original Coming Soon. #BreatheOnAmazon @AmazonVideoIN @BreatheAmazon @Abundantia_Ent @TheAmitSadh @SapnaPabbi pic.twitter.com/pHU7bHfZRV — Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) December 19, 2017 Get ready for a breathless experience. #BreatheTeaser in 3 days! @BreatheAmazon @AmazonVideoIN pic.twitter.com/QgJNenGNuz — Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) January 2, 2018 And we were beyond stoked when we read the official synopsis which says, “Breathe is a gritty psychological drama that follows the lives of ordinary men faced with extraordinary circumstances. Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh), a brilliant but unconventional officer of the Mumbai Crime Branch, puts the pieces together of seemingly unconnected deaths that lead to an unlikely suspect – the affable Danny Mascarenhas (R. Madhavan). As Danny faces the difficult choice between morality and the slim possibility of saving his dying son's life, Kabir will not stop till he cracks the case and delivers justice.” And finally, today, a teaser was released. © Amazon Prime Video We get to see some chilling visuals of someone getting drowned and a woman being hit by the car while Madhavan's voice in the background thrills us to the core. © Amazon Prime Video Bottom line being, the teaser has left us wanting for more and will do the same to you. Have a look: The show is set to be Amazon's first trilingual digital series and will stream in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Directed by Mayank Sharma, the series also stars Amit Sadh and Sapna Pabbi and is set to release on 26th January across 200+ countries and territories worldwide.
  9. It's 2018, the age of newer, finer things. It's a year where you let go of old beliefs and ideas and focus merely on looking at the world a lot more objectively. One of the things to make peace with in this progressive age is dating a successful woman. By successful, I mean women who are also breadwinners and are bringing home the dough. The new breed of women who are calling shots and have an involvement in every sphere of life and are slowly taking over the world and if you happen to date one of them, the last thing you should feel is threatened! Your girlfriend could be a company's CEO to a successful entrepreneur and if she happens to out-earn you then you needn't feel emasculated. Yes, men have been breadwinners traditionally and women have been taking care of households but times are slowly changing and if your woman is wearing the pants in your relationship, learn to make peace with it and be happy for her! Here's how you date a successful woman without feeling small or emasculated. Don't Be Intimidated By What She Does Be proud of the fact that she's doing well for herself, instead of being intimated by her success. Don't undermine her presence as a person or over step on her needs of her wishing to spend some good quality time with you. Play up your strengths. If you don't want to by her expensive gifts, be innovative with your gifting ideas instead. Cook for her or share wisdom and knowledge about something you're good at. © Thinkstock Stop Competing A relationship is not a competition but treating each other as equals. If you're threatened by her success and are always competing, not only will it tire you out, it will strain your relationship with her too. If she's earning well and is well settled in her job, don't compete with her for the wrong reasons. Encourage her and be her support system instead. If you're still struggling professionally, she'll surely be your support in every possible way. If the competition is unhealthy, it's the worst possible way to project your insecurities regarding her success. © Thinkstock Voice Out Your Insecurities Instead of being jealous of her success and constantly holding her against being more successful, maybe figure out why you are insecure in the first place. Is it because you have low self-esteem and hence that makes you easily insecure? It's best to figure your reasons out first, so you can work on them. On the other hand, if you're really uncomfortable about the fact that she's always paying for you, or buying expensive gifts etc. then voice your concern out to her and let it not rot there, breeding more negativity. © Thinkstock It's Absolutely Okay If She Pays Sometimes, if she wants to pay for you, let her. Let it not affect your ego or your self-esteem. You should be proud of the fact that you're dating an independent, successful woman who can take care of herself. Instead, look at this as relief at times. It's saving your pocket a mini crisis each time she pays! You can offer to pay or go dutch but if she wants to pay for you, why the heck not? © Thinkstock Don't Stop 'Being The Man' So she's financially secure and good at what she does. Does that really make you feel so bad that you end up acting immaturely, letting your ego get in the way? Don't be a baby or be a burden on her with your insecurities, instead be the man you are. Take charge of the relationship, make plans, take care of her, open doors, offer to pick her up or drop her, you know the usual stuff that leaves normalcy in a relationship like this, intact. Be a good decision maker and don't go overboard with that, just because you're trying to nurse a bruised ego. © Thinkstock Be Financially Sound One way to secure your financial situation (no, not to match up to hers) is to have various saving plans and investment schemes in hand. If she's successful, I bet she is already doing that for a bright future she wishes to have. If you haven't started saving yet, you really need to, mate! © Thinkstock Have Fun Together Even if she's running her own company or holds an important post in a big company, and is travelling all around the world for business, she definitely still wants you to be a big part of her life. Don't negate the effort she makes even though she's super busy most times because she won't negate the effort you put in to make the relationship work. Making your schedules meet can be challenging at times but it's imperative to take out adequate time out of your busy lives and spend the most of what you have, together, even if it means staying at home and chilling with each other. © Thinkstock Just be thrilled about the fact that you're dating a successful, sorted woman who has her sh** together and you don't have to go that extra mile to take care of her or her finances. You can easily think of a future with someone like her since both of you are financially sound and there isn't any dependency. Be comfortable around her and let go of that burnt ego you're holding onto and instead be happy about the fact that you're with someone who is smart and beautiful with a heap load of determination and ambition to go along with it.
  10. Christmas came early for all sci-fi movie lovers when 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' was released and honestly even Santa couldn't have given us a better present than Disney gave us last year. This movie was one of the biggest blockbusters of 2017, but we guess the internet wasn't satisfied with just seeing lightsabers and jedis on screen. So, netizens did what they are best at, they tapped into their inner Sherlock and found this epic moment that has now been inked in the golden pages of Star Wars franchise and biggest memes of 2018. © lucasfilm You know your movie is in trouble when people talk more about a shirtless Kylo Ren than his force powers and performance. Until last year, people were raising their eyebrows over Ren's shirtless high waisted pants look, fast forward to present time and we have an iconic meme to kickstart 2018 and the credit entirely goes to singer John Mayer. © lucasfilm Unless you were busy booking tickets to watch 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi', you would have seen the Kylo Ren challenge that is trending and spreading like wildfire, after Mayer posted a photo of him in high-waisted pants with no shirt on. #kylorenchallenge A post shared by johnmayer (@johnmayer) on Dec 30, 2017 at 7:00pm PST The moment Mayer posted the picture, people lost their sh*t and broke the internet with their own hilarious versions of the bare-chested son of Han Solo and Princess Leia and all we have to say is, this is too much internet for today. P.S. 'May the memes be with you'.

  11. Much like 2016, the fade haircut had another win at 2017's Grooming Box Office. And while its celebrity endorsers emerged in plenty once again, to be honest, only a few scored really high grades. While the year started with Anil Kapoor's big hair transformation, Tiger Shroff decided to end the year with his own. Cutting the short story, shorter: looks like, the fade 'do is here to stay! So, here are the top 5 fades that defined 2017 for us: 1. As a matter of fact, Anil Kapoor's transformation into the 'Benjamin Button' of India was undoubtedly, the biggest grooming moment of 2017. And once again, the actor gave the entire world the affirmation that he is nowhere close to ageing. © Instagram/Anil Kapoor 2. Varun Dhawan's fade acquisition for a quick brand commercial, was a great, great move on his part. It defined his cheekbones better and brought a lot of focus onto his stubble-clad jawline. © Instagram/Varun Dhawan 3. Shahid Kapoor of course, built his own army of variants of the fade haircut in 2017. Only difference, he kept getting better with every variation, resulting in some major grooming highs on his Instagram. © Instagram/Shahid Kapoor 4. In a very recent move, Tiger Shroff too, succumbed to the intoxication of the 'fade'. Making him look much younger (not sure if that's a great thing for him), and a great replacement for his otherwise unkempt stubble. Plus, it looks terrific! © Viral Bhayani 5. Maybe not in the league of these actors above, but Suniel Shetty's mid-fade is exactly what's making us include him in this list. Thanks to his workout regimes and grooming routines, Shetty's fade was quite the 'do to cop' in 2017. © Viral Bhayani

  13. If you are looking for a job change, then you definitely need to prepare for it in advance. You have to get your resume right and then approach recruiters. But why take on the immense hassle when technology has made it possible for various other opportunities? To be honest, your LinkedIn profile is the key to your new job in 2018. They are looking for you, you just need to be ready and active. CNBC contributor Suzy Welch says that, "If you maximize your LinkedIn profile, you may not be looking for your next job. It could come find you." According to the man who has worked closely with Steve Jobs and is also a Silicon Valley venture capitalist, Guy Kawasaki, "If you're not on LinkedIn, you might as well not exist in this world. Everybody needs to be on LinkedIn." © Guy Kawasaki Wikipedia Here are some of the changes you should make to your LinkedIn profile to make it stand out to the potential recruiters. 1. Make your summary stand out: A summary is like pitching yourself to a potential recruiter and it is also the first thing anyone sees after your name on your profile. List your achievements, your experiences, what motivates you and fill it with what your interests are. You should try to make it as interesting and straight to the point as you could. 2. Click a good photo for your profile image: © S3 Studio / Getty Images As per LinkedIn, profiles that include a photo are 21 times more likely to be viewed than those without one. It also increases your chances by nine times to receive connection requests. Go for a high-resolution image that also looks professional. Try to keep the focus on yourself when it comes to the profile picture. 3. Add the location of where you live Did you know recruiters screen by location? Leaving your location off your resume leaves you out of the running for a lot of jobs in a single filter. As per LinkedIn, just by adding your city to your profile, you will boost your chances of being seen by 23 times. 4. Mention your educational background Did you know profiles with completed education fields receive 17 times more messages from recruiters? By adding your school in the profile information, it is more likely that college alumni or hiring managers will find you more easily. 5. Specify the industry you work in © jobsDB According to LinkedIn, each week, more than 300,000 people search LinkedIn profiles by industry. That is indeed a huge number. Making this simple change to your profile can increase your chances of appearing on recruiter searches. It also allows Linkedin to help you connect to the right job listings, events, and trending articles. 6. List your current designation If you haven't updated it yet, then update it today as it does not take up too much time. Imagine what message it will give to the potential recruiter who lands up on your profile and is turned off by your outdated position. They might also think you are not an active Linkedin professional and thus might not reply to their message. Why risk a big opportunity knocking your door? 7. Add your skills If you are a great negotiator then add that, if you have good communication skills, add that too. Skills do not always mean you are bound to add your technical skills only. If you have not noticed it yet, then let us tell you that soft skills are the need of the hour these days. As per LinkedIn, you should include five or more skills to showcase your different talents.
  14. We have seen parents scolding, or at times, even punishing their kids if they do something wrong, but would any parent go to extreme lengths as to kill their own children because of some unknown hysteria that has blanketed society? Well, that's the premise of Brian Taylor's upcoming directorial project 'Mom and Dad' starring Nicholas Cage and Selma Blair as the violent parents. Maybe the 'Savdhaan India' writers were hired to write a script for this movie, and we can clearly see it all over the trailer. Clearly, they are trying to help or warn the kids who are absolutely terrified of their parents…just saying. © Armory Films The trailer begins like any other 'we're a happy family' movie where dad Nicholas Cage casually jokes with his children “Take my advice! Don't ever have kids”. But, soon this advice turns creepier as we delve deeper into the trailer. Although this movie is a part of the horror comedy genre, we could only sense creepy vibes and the over-the-top acting of the crazy parents, who seemed to be on a different tangent altogether with only one aim in their minds – kill their children. © Armory Films Nicholas Cage is undoubtedly one of the most talented actors Hollywood has seen till date. Pick any movie of this Oscar-winning actor, 'Face Off', 'National Treasure' and 'Ghost Rider'; Cage has proved his mettle in every movie, so clearly our expectations are high from this one too. But, in all honesty, the trailer just failed to hit the target. We might be too early to point our guns at 'Mom and Dad', and you could say that our expectations from a Nicholas Cage movie or the trailer being kind of clueless; did not leave a mark on our minds. But, opinions can be subjective and just like any other movie; Cage was at his wackiest best in this one too. So, if you are into dark comedy served with a tinge horror, this one is for you. © Armory Films 'Mom and Dad' also stars Annie Winters, Zackary Arthur, Olivia Croccicchia, Samantha Lemole and Brionne Davis. Having said that, we are sure that you're dying to find out why these parents have turned into killers and what is fueling their unstoppable urge to kill their kids. And we guess that will be one of the primary reasons for us to drag ourselves to movie theatres on January 19, 2018, when the movie is expected to be released.

  17. Investing your money has never been this easy. With the advancement of technology, one can now start investing for as low as Rs 1000 a month just with the help of one's smartphone. Though technology has made it that easy, you can not just start investing without a proper plan. You need to invest as per your future requirements. It could be paying the down payment of your car or property or your anything else, really. Here is how you can take your first steps towards investing your money correctly. 1. You need to start investing early. © YouTube/Alliance Group You should not wait for a reason to start investing. Instead, you should start investing as soon as you get your first paycheck. Waiting for your bonus, or a raise is just not a good enough reason. The sooner you start investing, the better your returns will be . Also, the returns you get depends on the compound interest which gets better the longer you invest your money. 2. Do not invest blindly. © Guide Me Trading Investment is only good when you or your consultant have proper knowledge of the funds you are investing into. These days, investments in Bitcoin is in the news all over the world. Its price is taking steep turns. The currency is so volatile that most of the investors are calling it another bubble which could burst any day. So investing your money into such a thing could be hazardous. 3. Pay for a professional consultant. If you have the money to invest, there are people who can help you achieve so. You can hire a financial planner to systematically invest your money into growing funds. You may not have complete knowledge of the subject but a financial professional does. They can charge you by the hour or charge a basic flat fee but never choose one who asks for the percentage of your investment. 4. Invest at least 15 percent of your income. The best way to get this 15 percent invested before you start spending your money or paying your loans is to have your money automatically taken out of your paycheck and sent straight to your investment accounts. That is one of the best ways to really invest your hard-earned cash. 5. Minimize your taxes © SlidePlayer The more you manage, or minimize the amount you pay in taxes, you'll also save a ton of cash to be used in compounding your money or investing. Learn the tax code and find loopholes you can take advantage of. If you think you do not have enough time to do so, you can hire a chartered accountant in the meantime and you can start working on understanding the system better. 6. Beware of fees When you begin investing, you may face three types of fees that those institutions may charge for the service. Try to find a scheme which charges the lowest in terms of those fees. It could be the annual fee (0.2 to 6 percent of your total investment), transaction fee and front-end loads(5 to 6 percent of the total investment). So be on the lookout for one of the three. So, how have you guys invested your cash?
  18. “It's party time”. “Dude, Yeaaa”! “Let's get drunk out of our skulls” and the worst one, “WHOOOOOOO”. Yup, it's that time of the year where everyone is acting like they are suddenly hopped up on sugar and Red Bull. via GIPHY There is so much happiness, so much overflowing optimism that some of us just go out of our way to avoid the avalanche of insane cheerfulness. via GIPHY Now I am sure not everyone had a great 2017. It is a simple yet saddening fact. Many of us began the year on a positive note but certain things did not go the way we planned, making this year…well…a big fat bummer. via GIPHY So with seven days to go, here are seven things that will truly help you lighten that load in your chest, and begin 2018 on a positive note. 1. Treat That Friend You Have Ignored Or Taken For Granted via GIPHY You know who I am talking about. Work, studies, family, 'other' friends may have taken you away from that one person who was always there for you. Stop being a jerk and call them up right now. Never, ever take those who are always there for you for granted. 2. Bring A Smile On Your Roommate's Face via GIPHY Could be anything really. How about actually cleaning the room? Like REALLY clean it. Don't wait for them to ask, just do it. Surprise them with a 'clean' start and watch them light up with relief. A happy roommate equals to peace of mind. OR you can just buy them a large crate of beer…like I said before, anything that makes them happy. 3. Bring/Send Your Mom Flowers via GIPHY If flowers don't really work, then something else that she really likes. Nothing else can make your soul sing than watching your mother smile happily because of you. How about you make her happy for a change instead of driving her crazy? 4. Scare The Living Crap Out Of Your Sibling via GIPHY This is my personal favourite. Now I don't mean jump out the door and say 'boo'. Come on! Plan something elaborate, film the whole thing and scare the daylights out of them. And then the best part? Make it up to them by spoiling them with whatever they want. Relations between siblings are the ones that get taken for granted the fastest. Show them you care…by giving them a scare! 5. Give It Back To That Bully. Don't Hold Back via GIPHY They could be anywhere and be anyone really. A colleague, a classmate, a teacher, your boss, flatmate or even a family member. Point is they made this year a living hell for you and it's time you give it back. Now I'm not asking you to go into full on Rambo mode, but confront them instead. I know you have been thinking about it and avoiding it, but enough. Tell them upfront like a mature person and get that load off your chest. Don't carry their negativity into your New Year. 6. Hunt Down Your Childhood Best Bud via GIPHY Use the power of social media my friends and track him/her down. Honestly, the Internet is not being used enough by most of us. Relive those golden memories with your childhood pal and watch how the happiness meter in your brain shoots through your skull. It will take work and time and effort. But by jove, the end result will be worth it. Start buzzing your old friends and go get your long, lost friend. 7. Pour Your Heart Out To Your Crush via GIPHY Just let it out my friend. You kept walking around all year with that big iron ball in your chest and now it's time to get that heavy hunk of metal out. What do you have to lose anyway? Don't begin a New Year with baggage and regrets.
  19. It's been well over 5 years that I have been training. From bodybuilding to now powerlifting, I have ventured into all thing fitness. Even though I am a fitness coach myself with several transformations under my belt, I still have a coach to guide me. My coach also has a coach for himself, in fact. No matter how much experience and knowledge the top level pros have (bodybuilders or powerlifters) they always work under the guidance of a coach. Then why do people who have no background in fitness think that they can 'manage it in the gym'. Well, if you think the same, you are gravely mistaken and here are top 5 reasons you need to hire one! 1) You Need Accountability The biggest advantage of having a coach is: you're accountable to someone. Your coach is there to keep you on track and monitor your progress. If you know you have to weekly send physique pictures or body weight checks to someone, you're more likely to make progress. No one wants to let another person down. 2) Humans Are Awful At Being Objective About Themselves Making progress solo is easier when all things are going right. But when you encounter a setback, immediately you start questioning yourself. Am I overtraining? Maybe I am training too much or too little? Do I need another rest day? Should I go low carb or high carb? Suddenly you are questioning your entire workout and nutrition plan. If you were coaching someone else you would eliminate emotions and devise an objective plan of action. However, if you are training yourself it is just not possible and this exactly where a coach will help you. 3) We Are Good At Lying To Ourselves “I am unable to drop weight. Maybe I have heavy bones.” “I eat very little but I'm still unable to lose fat. My metabolism must be very slow.” Etc… Etc… As humans, we always tend to sugar coat our mistakes and lie to ourselves. Your coach (a good one) won't tell you sweet lies. Instead, he will ask you to maintain a daily food log and check where you are going off the track. Maybe it is not your bones or metabolism but the un-measured amount of peanut butter you are adding in your shakes that is shooting your weight up 4) Motivation & Adjustments To Your Training Program Progress will never be linear. There will always be ups and downs. Sometimes you won't feel like hitting the gym with the same intensity. In such scenarios, a coach can be a great motivating aid. Many of my clients are unable to devote enough time in the gym during their exams and are worried about losing their gains. In such cases, I design an easier yet effective training program for them that enable them to maintain their gains without spending a lot of time in the gym. 5) You Pay For It. Thus, You Work Hard. Last but not the least you will be spending money on your coaching. And nobody likes to waste their hard earned money. People tend to get superior results from something they pay for in comparison to something they get for free. Since you paid for your fitness coach, you would like to maintain your A-Game and make the most of it. When effort goes up, often times so do results! Personal anecdote: Taking a leap of faith! During the preparation for my first powerlifting meet, I failed at the 170 Kg deadlift while testing my One RM but my coach was very confident that I could easily pull 190/200 on the meet day. I questioned how's that even possible? And he said “Just stay down and the bar will come up” I took a leap of faith in him and it did work. Won a bronze in my first meet! Having a coach is an invaluable asset. Yash Sharma is a former national level Football player, now a Strength Coach, Nutritionist and Natural Bodybuilder.

  20. It took everything 'The Force' has to make me watch this movie. After sitting through 2 hours and 33 minutes of agony and a few entertaining trailers for movies which seemed like much more fun, the only thing I can say is, a literal fight between stars would have been more entertaining. Okay, that's perhaps a bit too harsh. There are some memorable space battle scenes in the movie. But, is there anything in this movie that makes it different from being a rehash of 'The Empire Strikes Back?' I really didn't find anything. Here are 4 reasons why you just shouldn't bother wasting your time or money watching 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi': Character Growth When you have a trilogy, you'd expect the main character(s) to grow as the series progresses, right? But, what do you see Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo/Ben (Adam Driver) do throughout the movie? The same stuff they did in the Force Awakens. © Lucasfilm Ltd. Okay, they do find different ways of doing it, but they're still stuck in the same rut. Remember how they stretched out 'The Hobbit' into 3 movies? Looks like they're doing the same thing here. © Lucasfilm Ltd. But, to give credit where credit's due, Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) have pretty decent character growth in this movie. Lightsabers When you're going to watch 'Star Wars', you want to see tons of lightsaber action, right? 'Rogue One' barely had any lightsabers but then they gave us an epic minute or so of Darth Vader slaughtering rebels and all was forgiven. © Lucasfilm Ltd. If the same happened here, if Luke stood up to a battalion of First Order troops and 'Forced' the shit out of them, all would have been forgiven. Instead, we get some poorly choreographed battles that probably had George Lucas dreading his decision of selling to Disney. Porgs This is actually one of the few things that the movie has going for it. So, why is it one of the reasons not to watch 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi?' Well, when one of the main reasons to watch a movie about space battles looks like this © Lucasfilm Ltd. It's not great news now is it? (The next point contains spoilers so if you want to see the movie first, go and do that before reading any further.) Skywalker The original trilogy focused on Luke Skywalker. The prequels focused on Anakin Skywalker. This trilogy focuses on 'Rey from nowhere'. While this would have been fine if Rey was a flawed character or a character who we could grow with. But, when you're so deep into Star Wars, there are hardly any secrets left. We loved Luke even more when we learnt that Darth Vader was his father. We didn't really care for Rey much when we learnt her parents were nobodies. © Lucasfilm Ltd. The Skywalker name is synonymous with Star Wars. Where are they now? Thanking their lucky stars they don't have anything to do with this new trilogy anymore. But, you don't have to take our word for it. Here's Mark Hamill talking about how disappointed he is with the new Luke Skywalker: I'm not necessarily saying that this is a bad movie. It's a good movie. Critics seem to love it too. But, is it a Star Wars movie? Of course not! Just ask any hardcore Star Wars fanboy what they thought of the movie. In fact, they hated the movie so much someone actually started a petition to get it remade. © Lucasfilm Ltd. The petition has since been removed but it had more than 45,000 signatures before that happened. As for Disney, they've already earned well over $500 million from the movie within a week so I don't think they're going to be phased by what I have to say anyway.
  21. While we are sitting at our desks … being miserable on a Thursday evening, the SPG (a.k.a Special protection group) has taken over Taj Diplomatic Enclave — the exclusive and upmarket venue slated for the epic #Virushka reception. The larger-than-life reception is the first time Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma will meet peers, well-wishers, industry members as a married couple. It's the big reception, guys! Earlier in the week, the pair caused an Internet breakdown when they met with Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to personally invite him to the hyped ceremony. Here's the official photo of the couple handing over the bag to NAMO... Earlier this week, the couple was also spotted goofing around and staging a perfect photo shoot with Anushka's best friends (and stylists) — Ameira Punvani and Kanika Karvinkop. Don't believe us? Here are the photos. Virat's face here could easily be termed as the 10th wonder of the world… #besttimes #whatfun #cantkeepastraightface #thankyou @anushkasharma & @virat.kohli for the most #amazingly #fun #wedding , #yummiestfood and a #lifetimelove of #memories⤠A post shared by MissPunvanity (@mspunvanity) on Dec 17, 2017 at 1:01am PST More than 700 guests are invited for the winter reception. And according to our source, top wedding planner, and ace stylist, Devika Narain — responsible for some of Delhi's most influential and avant-garde events — is responsible for the decor of the reception. Here's THE PHOTO of the grand set-up and the couple we've all been waiting for... Like...OMG! Okay. One more time... Stay tuned for more...
  22. 2017 started on a high note with an action-packed performance by Vin Diesel in 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage'. Though the action thriller did well in the international market, we saw the genre slipping at the box office. What we witnessed in the next few months was exciting and record-breaking at the same time. Movies after movies broke records in earnings and popularity. Where on one hand the horror genre ruled the box office, many crime thrillers did well in the overseas market. It was the zest of the talented filmmakers who took a brave attempt in bringing out crime stories when the market for horror flicks was soaring. Here we have compiled the list of the most amazing crime-thriller movies you must watch before the year ends. 1. Wind River © thunder road pictures This murder mystery, starring Jeremy Renner, Graham Greene, and Elizabeth Olsen, has won accolades at many film festivals and award shows in different categories, including the Best Director award at Cannes Film Festival and Best Actor (Graham Greene) and Best Film at American Indian Film Festival. Directed by Taylor Sheridan, this movie is about two officers – a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officer and an FBI agent – solving a murder that takes place on the Wind River Indian reservation in mysterious circumstances. Director Sheridan said that he was motivated to make this movie after finding out about the numerous true stories of assault and murder of women in reservations. 2. Baby Driver © big talk productions With a 7.8 rating on IMDb, 'Baby Driver', starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily Kames and Jamie Foxx, is a must watch for those who fancy action-thriller movies. More than 15 nominations in various award categories, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy (Ansel Elgort), this movie has been able to appeal to the audiences and critics alike. Writer and director Edgar Wright says that he found inspiration to develop a story around a post-heist car chase from the 1994 song 'Bellbottoms'. Eventually, this song was used in the opening credits of this movie. 3. American Made © universal pictures This Tom Cruise starrer biographical crime movie is a gripping tale of a former pilot becoming a deadly drug dealer. With an 88 percent approval aggregate on Rotten Tomatoes, the critical consensus for this movie here is this: "American Made's fast-and-loose attitude with its real-life story mirrors the cavalier – and delightfully watchable – energy Tom Cruise gives off in the leading role." Now, don't we love Tom Cruise donning aviators, crash landing planes and going badass? Of course, we do! A cherry on the cake is that he does most of it in a pilot's uniform. 4. The Snowman © perfect world pictures This English crime thriller is based on a novel of the same name, written by Jo Nesbo. The story keeps viewers glued to their seats as they discover the protagonist – Detective Harry Hole investigating the case of the disappearance of a woman. Intriguingly, her scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman. Though there have been mixed responses to the film but it has gained popularity for its impactful storytelling. Michael Fassbender gives a striking performance and has tried to explore a different genre through this film. The film is directed by Tomas Alfredson and keeps you gripped till the end. Scenic backdrop and snow-laden mountains are an attraction and make you feel the thrill. 5. Shot Caller © bold films This crime thriller stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lake Bell, Omari Hardwick, Emory Cohen, Jon Bernthal, Evan Jones, Jeffrey Donovan, with Holt McCallany and Benjamin Bratt. Written and directed by Ric Roman Waugh, the movie entails the transformation of a charming family guy into a hardcore gangster. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's performance in the lead role received raving reviews. He has given a breathtaking performance and ensures that the movie never gets static at all. As per the New York Times, the film would be 'Breaking Bad' of the prison genre. 6. John Wick: Chapter 2 © lionsgate This film sets your heart racing. With a 7.5 IMDb rating, this Keanu Reeves thriller grossed a whopping 171 million dollars worldwide. Mike Rougeau of IGN stated that the movie "takes joy in expanding on the original's lore", giving it an 8.5 out of 10. He praised the movie as a big improvement with regard to action set pieces, cinematography, fight choreography and writing. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone called this movie "pure cinema" and "the real deal". Now, who would want to miss a movie that made both the audience and the critics happy? 7. The Foreigner © wanda pictures Written by David Marconi and directed by Martin Campbell, this Anglo China action thriller is must watch for suspense lovers. Based on Stephen Leather's novel 'The Chinaman'; the movie stars Jackie Chan, Katie Leung, Pierce Brosnan, and Rufus Jones among others. Oscar winner Jackie Chan received good reviews for his dramatic performance as Ngoc Minh Quan – a former war Special Forces operator turned restaurateur in London. It is needless to say that those who have a thing for action definitely have a thing for Jackie Chan. It would not be wrong to say that the story is a fierce vendetta dipped in emotions. In addition, we get to see different shades of Chan – desperate, helpless, crying and angry. So, go, watch it and thank us later! 8. Brawl in Cell Block 99 © assemble media This is a story of a former boxer turned drug dealer who lands in prison after a drug deal goes wrong. With an IMDb rating of 7.2, this Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Carpenter criminal drama is a good watch. From nail-biting action scenes to a raunchy background score, this Craig Zahler directorial keeps you engaged and thrilled throughout. On Rotten Tomatoes, this movie has a brilliant aggregate of 93 percent and an approval of “certified fresh”. Need I say more? 9. Good Time © elara pictures 'Good Time' is undoubtedly Robert Pattinson's best performance so far. With a raw touch to his personality, Robert is almost unrecognizable in the trailers of this movie. He definitely walks out of his Cedric Diggory and Edward days in this one. Not just a pretty face anymore! With an IMDb rating of 7.4 and a whopping 91 percent approval on Rotten Tomatoes, this movie was appreciated by almost all critics alike. The consensus rating on Rotten Tomatoes reads – “A visual treat filled out by consistently stellar work from Robert Pattinson, Good Time is a singularly distinctive crime drama offering far more than the usual genre thrills." This crime drama was written by Josh Safdie and Ronald Bronstien, and directed by Ben and Josh Safdie. Oneohtrix Point Never developed the film's background score, which won the Soundtrack Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. 10. Detroit © annapurna pictures From Kathryn Ann Bigelow, an Academy Award-winning writer-director of blockbusters like Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker, 'Detroit' is the story of one of the darkest times during the civil unrest in the summer of 1967 that rocked the city of Detroit. A 7.5 on IMDb, this gripping historical crime drama, is a must watch. The film stars Will Poulter, John Boyega, Jason Mitchell, Algee Smith, Anthony Mackie and John Krasinski. Will Leitch and Tim Grierson from The New Republic referred to the film as a potential Oscar candidate in the main category of Best Picture. They also mentioned John Boyega as a potentially deserving Oscar nominee for Best Actor.

According to a statement by the online streaming service, this year saw a massive increase in Indians binge-watching. (We sure are guilty!) The statement also talked about the most popular shows among Indians and honestly, most of them do not come as surprises. Be ready to save this list or make notes because in case you haven't seen these shows, you sure are behind the rest of the country.

The show revolves around a high school student, Clay Jensen, and his friend Hannah Baker who committed suicide. A box of cassette tapes recorded by Hannah before her suicide details thirteen reasons why she ended her life and are distributed among those 13 people who were responsible for her death. If that doesn't peak your interest, we don't know what will. Mindhunter © Netflix If you have ever wondered why some serial killers and rapists do what they do, then this one is a must watch for you. The show is set in 1979, in the early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt Mccallany) interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how such criminals think and apply this knowledge to solve ongoing cases.

  24. Finding that perfect gift for your favourite girl can be a tedious process. Most men would probably strike off sexy underwear from their lists to avoid that stressful/intimidating trip to the lingerie store. Well, it doesn't have to be anymore. Here are 6 hassle-free tips to find the perfect, sexy little number for your lady. 1. Do Your Research! This ain't rocket science, boys, just bras and underwear. The first thing you need to do is figure out the sizes. This step is relatively easy if you're living with your partner. Sneak a peek at her underwear drawer when she's in the shower. If you want to go the extra mile, you could even read up on lingerie styles on the Internet and figure out what your gal would love and look sexy in! © Lace lingerie_bohowildboutique 2. Base Your Choices On What She Would Like When you're rummaging through her underwear, make a note of the brands and the styles that she prefers. Most women would have a specific brand of bras that would fit better than others. STICK. TO. THOSE. BRANDS. Now, if your girlfriend is conservative, try not to push boundaries too far. For instance, if she's into simple cotton bras and briefs, she may not like that sexy G-string you bring home. Instead, go for a sexy lace number or a baby doll dress. If you have no idea of what those words even are, I have one more word for you: Google. 3. Play It Smart When You Can't Wrap Your Head Around Sizes Not sure about lingerie sizes? No problem! Sensuous sleepwear can be a great option to consider. You can either choose a tasteful pair of silk shorts, a sexy slip, or even a short nightdress. These items usually come in generic sizes and you don't have to worry about those double digits and letters! © Clancy_Evening Standard Uk 4. Why Shop At A Store When You Can Shop Online? Thankfully, our country is home to a variety of online lingerie stores. Which means, you can shop for your lady's underwear, sitting on your couch IN YOUR underwear. What a time to be alive! 5. When You're On A Budget, Go For The Undies! A sexy pair of underwear can make a great gift option when you're low on cash. Thongs and G-strings are the usual bedroom favourites, but if you're looking for something classic, a black lace panty should do the trick. However, the key here is to get the size right; so make sure you do some detective work to figure out her size. Nothing worse than giving her something pretty that she can't use! Lastly, the most importance one… © man shopping lingerie_scienceofrelationships 6. DO NOT Give It In Public I repeat, this is NOT the kind of present she's expecting when you two are out for dinner. This is an absolute no–no (unless, you want people judging you for your intimate gifting choices). Make sure you're in a private space before you surprise her. She'll thank you for it. Also, don't just hastily hand it over in a plastic bag. Presentation matters! Make an effort to at least wrap it or place it in a nice bag. Well, what are you waiting for? Time to make some scandalous purchases, gentlemen. Good luck!
  25. 2017 has been a great year for movies. Right from the horrors of 'It' and 'Annabelle: Creation' to subtle storylines of 'Lady Bird' and 'Song to Song', filmmakers explored a myriad of genres and themes. Where on one hand we saw the rise of female characters in superhero films, on the other hand, we witnessed the emergence of the horror category, setting benchmarks and breaking records. However, amidst the hush-hush to watch a number of hyped films this year, there were quite a few which slipped through the cracks. We have compiled a list of incredible movies which you may have skipped somehow, but are a necessary watch before the year ends, even if you are not a movie buff! 1. The Big Sick © amazon studios Directed by Michael Showalter, this American rom-com has received major nominations for the Golden Globes and SAG awards this year. Starring Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano, Adeel Akhtar and Anupam Kher, the film revolves around a family and explores the complexities of love. Though the film is a bit long for the audience, it is actually too lovable to be ignored. 2. I Tonya © clubhouse pictures This film is being taken as Margot Robbie's career-defining performance. Directed by Craig Gillespie the movie is a raw portrayal of Tonya Harding's struggle as a skater. Robbie's world-class performance has received positive reviews and she is even being projected as a strong contender for Oscars this year. 3. The Shape Of Water © fox searchlight Directed by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, the film has received seven Golden Globe nominations this year. Described as a 'creature feature and a melodrama' by Business Insider, the film presents a compelling story of a mute woman serving as a cleaning lady at a top-secret United States government lab during the 1960s, when she develops a relationship with a creature in the lab. 4. American Made © universal pictures Tom Cruise makes a diligent effort to take us on an adventure-filled journey, as he nearly perfects the biggest CIA operation in the history of United States. The film is perpetually entertaining; one needs to wait until the end to see the magic happen. 5. A Ghost Story © Zero Trans Fat Productions The storyline of 'A Ghost Story' is almost effortless. A musician, who dies in a car accident, simply returns as a ghost to the same house where he lived with his wife. As you watch the characters navigating though love and pain, 'A Ghost Story' lures you in with engaging performances and leaves your soul shattered. 6. Lady Bird © focus features After giving an Oscar-worthy performance in 'Brooklyn', Saoirse Ronan is believed to be a strong contender this year too. Directed by Greta Gerwig, the film explores the bay between childhood and adulthood. Currently, have an 8.4 rating on IMDb, the film also became the best-reviewed movies of all time on Rotten Tomatoes till as a few days back, when just one reviewer wrote a negative review about the film. 7. Logan Lucky © bleeker street It's a real tragedy that this movie has not gotten half the attention it deserves. The Steven Soderberg heist movie is one of the most entertaining movies of the year and that's saying something considering the blockbuster year we've had. From action packed scenes to a heartfelt rendition of “take me home, country roads” this movie is one redefines a long lost genre with incredible panache. 8. Get Out © blumhouse productions Daniel Kaluyya created a mark through his noteworthy performance resulting in his first Golden Globe nomination. The film is a well-scripted version of everyday experiences. The acting by the stellar cast will hit you like a truck and while it comes under the genre of horror, there are lots of other elements which will blow you away. At various junctures, one starts observing the lead character in a belief that he is the culprit. 'Get Out' is nominated in the Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, and star Daniel Kaluuya scored a Best Actor nom in the category for Golden Globes. 9. Split © universal studios Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, the film is based on the existence of 23 different personalities inside an individual. James McAvoy effortlessly pulls off the complex role and scares the lights out of us by changing personalities in the blink of an eye. This is a performance of a lifetime and is worthy of many awards this season. McAvoy solely carries the film on his shoulders; this tense horror thriller is a well-calculated risk. 10. The Post © dreamworks pictures Who can skip the historic collaboration of Hollywood's best actors – Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, especially when it is a Steven Spielberg film? The investigative journalism saga and Streep's portrayal of Katharine Graham are iconic. The film has already received nominations for Golden Globes and SAG awards and it going to be released on December 22 this year.
