  1. When it comes to bringing a beautiful story to life, there is no one better than Imtiaz Ali who can do that job effortlessly. He is a master of storytelling and has now come up with a new short film that literally connects to you. 'The Other Way' traces a journey of decision making and how often we are left confused. The story brings you Rewa (Shreya Chaudhry), a bride-to-be who is confused and starts questioning everything just hours before her wedding. The narration starts with a non-linear pattern, as the movie talks about our deepest fear. Rewa is just moments away from getting married to her longtime boyfriend but somewhere she fears what if she gets bored once they are hitched? What if things are no longer the same? © YouTube Maybe not the same, but similar incidents do take place in our lives and that's the reason why you end up liking Imtiaz's way of portraying a story, that many of us can relate to. What would you do when you are confused? Talk to someone you are very close to right? But Rewa finds comfort in a total stranger Arjun (Pavel Gulati), who is the photographer. Ali's dialogue and voiceover play a very vital role, as he hooks you to the screen within seconds. It's not that you can't sense what's about to happen, but Ali brilliantly makes sure you don't leave your seat and watch this 14-minute story. Shreya Chaudhary is high-spirited like Rewa and her eyes often deliver her emotions without words leaving her mouth. Pavel impresses you as well. Imtiaz Ali's short film is worth a watch and you shouldn't miss it. P.S. If 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' made you lose your faith in Imtiaz, this might restore it once again!
  2. Karan Tacker might be multi-gunned, supremely-successful actor now, but let's be clear — he's been like that right from the start. Ever since his foray into the industry, he's known to balance work life + style, only to establish his own celebrity-brand. And well, he's never looked back at all. He wears some terrific outfits, paired impeccably, all without being committed to expensive designer threads. Hence, his recent airport outfit for us isn't a biggie at all. But what's to notice about this outfit, however, is its play with apparel proportions. Because really, and we're not citing a fault here, but Tacker's not the tallest out there. That said, with his knack for wearing flattering menswear, he is definitely worth a follow for men who're maybe a little close to his height (or even shorter). Here are 3 things to keep in mind: © Viral Bhayani 1. If you're not down for longline T-shirts yet, think twice. Or, slip into one to enter a whole new world. With just a slight stretch in their length, longline T-shirts can create the illusion of a lengthened body frame. Isn't that what you're looking for? 2. But as they say, there's not just one rule of wearing a piece. Longline T-shirts aren't any different in this aspect. Ensure, the jacket (or denim jacket in Karan's case) is longer than the tee. But not too long. Restrict the length of your layering piece to maybe a few inches lower and that's all you'd probably need. Never let it go shorter than the T-shirt. © Viral Bhayani 3. Ankle-length boots can really be a boon sometimes. But, remember to neatly tuck your jeans/trousers into them or stick to a simple fold. Or really, just crop them appropriately. Loose jeans over ankle-length footwear is basically a pathway to looking even short. Avoid that. © Viral Bhayani All in all, nail your fits. They're key to doing fashion the right way, anyway.
  3. When our favorite and the coolest billionaire aka Elon Musk announced his mission to colonize Mars, the world was taken aback by his too good to be true plans. For obvious reasons, it became a whole new debate as to how much of what he has planned can actually take place in the near future, as his timelines were a set a little too early, to say the least. © Space X His privately funded mission aims to send a rocket to Mars by 2022. However, there is a new development in this regard and it's exactly what was needed to make us all excited for the next year. (We know it's just March but who cares?) While attending the South by Southwest festival (SXSW) this weekend, Musk indulged in a question-answer sort of segment. © Twitter On being asked about his Mars spaceship, he revealed, “We are building the first Mars or interplanetary ship, and I think we'll be able to short trips, flights by the first half of next year." But before you get too excited he added, “Although sometimes, my timelines are a little, you know...” We understand Elon, it isn't easy to be a crazy billionaire. He further talked about how he aims to set an example and encourage other firms to venture into space travel. He said, “They currently don't think it's possible, so if we show them that it is, they'll up their game and build interplanetary transport vehicles, as well.” Umm, remember this, guys? © Twitter We think he has already set an example by sending a freaking Tesla into space. Anyway, all of this is great news but what he revealed next is even better. Or maybe not. The good news is that he won't be allowing only rich people to make use of his mission in order to 'escape' Earth. Now escaping Earth would have made a good, lame joke but in this case, it might soon become a reality. He talked about the people who'd get to go to Mars and well, it obviously won't be easy, “For the early people that go to Mars, it will be far more dangerous. It kind of reads like (Ernest) Shackleton's ad for Antarctic explorers: Difficult, dangerous, good chance you'll die. Excitement for those who survive.” Pretty sure he'd find a million people who'd be willing to take this kind of risk as long as they get to visit Mars. You can hear him answer all this and more: Well, one thing's for sure: by revealing all of this, Mr. Musk has set our expectations at an all-time high and for some weird reason, we trust him to meet all of them.
  4. Former basketball player Kobe Bryant attends the 90th Annual Academy Awards Governors Ball at the Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4, 2018, in Hollywood, California Retired basketball superstar Kobe Bryant -- once the toast of Los Angeles for the Lakers -- is now a Hollywood A-lister with an Oscar. Yes, you read that correctly. Nearly two years after leaving the NBA, the 39-year-old Bryant won the Academy Award for best animated short on Sunday for "Dear Basketball," a collaboration with artist Glen Keane and legendary composer John Williams. "Thank you, Academy, for this amazing honour. Thank you, John Williams, for a wonderful piece of music," Bryant said. In a sardonic reference to an attack by Fox News presenter Laura Ingraham against basketballers expressing their political opinions, he said he thought NBA stars were "really supposed to shut up and dribble." "I'm glad we do a little bit more than that," he added. Awards prediction website Gold Derby had Bryant as the odds-on favourite to win the Oscar for best animated short, but his triumph is unlikely to please everyone.
  5. Some of the best art comes from pain and suffering, and war films are a prime example of that. Documenting the courage, pain and misery of those involved in war, these films are a reminder of the havoc a single battle can cause. While we've all seen war classics like 'The Hurt Locker' or 'Inglourious Basterds', there are some equally brilliant short films on war that are totally worth watching. With IMDb ratings above 8, these films are short in duration but are as hard-hitting as any feature length film. 1. Prisoner of War IMDb rating: 9.0 Duration: 13 minutes Directed by Mathew R. Sanders, this short revolves around the story of an American prisoner who is subjected to an unrelenting enquiry by a sadistic interrogator. Prison can break the strongest of people and it remains to be seen how he holds up against the interrogator. 2. Night And Fog IMDb rating: 8.6 Duration: 29 minutes A French short film about the horrific death camps in Nazi Germany, 'Night and Fog' flits back and forth in time with shots of the camps from before and after the war. 3. Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge IMDb rating: 8.2 Duration: 24 minutes Based on the short story of the same name by Ambrose Bierce, this short film by Robert Enrico tells the story of a Southern civilian who is about to be hanged but the rope from which the execution is taking place breaks under his weight. The film, which has no dialogues, won an Oscar in 1963 for Best Live Action Short Film. 4. Way In Rye IMDb rating: 9.5 Duration: 28 minutes A short based during the German invasion of Soviet Russia, 'Way in Rye' tells the story of a farmer and his wife who are protecting invaluable paintings that once belonged to Lenin, from the German forces. 5. Shok IMDb rating: 8.2 Duration: 24 minutes Watch it here
  6. Making a feature film is one hell of a task but what is crazier is watching it if turns out bad. While we celebrate blockbusters and worship the stars who maketh the film, there is a whole sea of brilliant short films out there that are way better than many of the films that crowd our screens. If the prospect of sitting through a 3-hour torture in a theatre gives you the creeps, these brilliant short films are the perfect watch for you. You don't even need to wait for the weekend to watch these. 1. The Most Beautiful Thing This is a love story between two people who are not the ideal match for each other but end up falling in love nevertheless. It has been written, directed and edited by Cameron Covell. 2. Rakka Directed by Neill Blomkamp, 'Rakka' is a military science fiction film about a dystopian future. 3.

Noose An animated short about a young boy dealing with thoughts about ending a life as he enters a forest alone. 11.

This one was shortlisted for the Sploid Short Film festival.
  7. An employee pumps petrol into a car at a petrol station in Hanoi, Vietnam, December 20, 2016. REUTERS/Kham/Files NEW YORK: Oil markets were mixed on Thursday with Brent flat even though the dollar slid, while US crude rose as investors covered short positions. ?This is kind of an upside-down Thursday,? Dominick Chirichella ? the co-president at the New York-based Energy Management Institute ? said. He said he was puzzled at why a weaker dollar did not boost Brent futures prices. ?The rise we?ve seen in US crude has been more of a short covering rally rather than a return to the uptrend,? he added. Global benchmark Brent slipped 3 cents to settle at $64.33 a barrel. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude gained 74 cents (1.2 percent) to settle at $61.34. Those price moves cut the premium of Brent over WTI to its lowest in six months. ?If the Brent-WTI spread narrows, the big incentive to export US crude oil starts to narrow,? Chirichella said, noting he did not expect US prices to hold at these higher levels for long since ?all of the fundamental snapshots ... over the past couple of weeks have been bearish.? The dollar slid to its lowest since it touched a three-year low in late January. A weaker dollar often boosts prices for oil and other dollar-denominated commodities, making them cheaper for holders of other currencies. ?I?m surprised that (Brent) oil prices are falling today given the weaker US dollar. Currently, the direction of the dollar is having a bigger impact on oil prices than fundamentals,? Rob Thummel ? a portfolio manager at energy investment manager Tortoise Energy ? said. Oil had climbed on Wednesday and early on Thursday after Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said OPEC hopes to keep limiting crude output to leave the market tight. ?Khalid al-Falih gave his strongest hint yet that exiting the current supply agreement is unlikely to be on the agenda this year,? said Tamas Varga of oil broker PVM. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other producers, including Russia, have agreed to cut output by 1.8 million barrels per day (BPD) through the end of 2018. But surging US production is offsetting OPEC?s efforts to curb supplies. US crude output hit a record 10.27 million barrels per day last week, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) said on Wednesday, making it a bigger producer than Saudi Arabia. The EIA expects US production to top 11 million bpd in late 2018.
  8. KUWAIT: Iraq received pledges of $30 billion, mostly in credit facilities and investment, on Wednesday from allies but this fell short of the $88 billion Baghdad says it needs to recover from three years of war. Donors and investors gathered in Kuwait to mull ways to rebuild Iraq?s economy and infrastructure as it emerges from a ruinous conflict with Daesh militants who seized almost a third of the country before being beaten back. ?If we compare what we got today to what we need, it is no secret, it is of course much lower than what Iraq needs,? Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari told a news conference. ?But we know that we will not get everything we want.? The United States and United Nations say that failure to help Iraq rebuild could unravel its gains against Daesh since economic and social problems that bred sectarian conflict, creating political space for jihadists, would persist. For his part, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called the conference ?an enormous success?. Although the United States said on Tuesday it was extending a $3 billion credit line to Iraq, it has not provided any direct government assistance. It instead hoped it could count largely on Gulf allies to shoulder the burden of rebuilding Iraq. Washington is also counting on a Saudi-Iraqi rapprochement to weaken Iran?s influence there. Saudi Arabia will provide $1 billion through its Saudi Fund for Development and $500 million in export credit, Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir told the conference, which ended Wednesday. ?Kuwait will earmark $1 billion in loans to Iraq and will commit to another $1 billion as investments,? Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah said at the gathering. Qatar pledged $1 billion in loans and investments and the United Arab Emirates pledged $500 million but added that there were $5.5 billion in private sector investments in Iraq. Turkey will give Iraq $5 billion in credit lines, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, and other allies made smaller pledges. Those sums are dwarfed by the more than $88.2 billion that Iraqi officials have said would be necessary for reconstruction after years of war, with housing a particular priority. DEVASTATING VIOLENCE Officials say almost $23 billion is needed for short-term reconstruction and over $65 billion in the medium term. Iraq might have been unable to attract more pledges because due to its association with corruption, UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner told Reuters. Investors see Iraq as the 10th most corrupt country, according to Transparency International. Still, Steiner said, the amount pledged was significant. ?Would you be better without the pledges made today? The answer is clearly no. Would you be better off if all of it was in the form of grants funding? Absolutely.? Iraq, which still owes Kuwait reparations from the 1991 Gulf War, declared victory over Daesh in December, having taken back all territory the militants captured in 2014 and 2015. The group has been largely defeated in Syria too. But the fighting has been devastating - leaving thousands dead, millions displaced and almost 150,000 houses destroyed. Rebuilding homes, hospitals, schools, roads, businesses and telecommunications will be crucial to providing jobs for the young, reversing displacement, and putting an end to decades of political and sectarian violence. On Wednesday, the United Nations launched a two-year Recovery and Resilience program designed to help Iraq?s government fast-track the social dimensions of reconstruction. ?The program will ... help families when they return home to get back on their feet, provide specialized support to survivors ... of sexual and gender-based violence, people who survived injuries,? Lise Grande, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, told Reuters. She also cited a special program to promote community reconciliation in areas with strong sectarian tensions.
  9. A view of smog in Delhi this month. Phto: Reuters NEW DELHI: The Indian government?s plan to spend $230 million over two years to prevent crop residue burning is below the spending estimates of its policy advisers for the task and may do little to cut the air pollution that envelops the capital region of Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi?s cabinet is expected to sign off on the plan as early as this month, three senior government officials involved in the talks told Reuters. The planned expenditure is far less than the $600 million per year that NITI Aayog, a government policy advisory group, estimated last November needed to be spent to prevent farmers from burning the crop waste left over after harvesting. It was not clear if the amount was recommended to the government. Crop stubble burning caused one-quarter of the air pollution that blanketed Delhi in November, the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change told parliament last week. The particles from the stubble burning combine with industrial pollution, vehicle exhaust and dust to cover the region every year as winter approaches and wind speeds drop. A policeman covers his face due to the smog in New Delhi this month. Photo: Reuters The proposed plan would give money to farmers in three states bordering Delhi ? Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh ? to cover 80 per cent of the cost of machinery to remove the crop stubble, said the officials, who declined to be named ahead of cabinet discussions on the matter. This would keep the farmers from burning the residue ahead of winter planting. ?This is an important step but a lot will depend on how quickly the scheme is rolled out at a scale that can make a difference,? said Anumita Roychowdhury, executive director of New Delhi-based think-tank the Centre for Science and Environment. The government officials said the funding can be raised if needed but warned against expecting immediate results. ?We won?t be able to improve more than 20 to 25 per cent of air quality even if the crop residue scheme is fully implemented,? acknowledged one of the government officials. ?But we have to accept that the efforts to clean Delhi?s air will not take less than five years.? A man covers his mouth during last year's smog in Delhi. Photo: File Modi?s office did not respond to an email seeking comment. Spokesmen for the farm and environment ministries declined to comment. In November, Delhi?s pollution index climbed to 12 times higher than the upper limit for healthy air. The air quality in central Delhi on Wednesday morning remains ?unhealthy? at more than three times the limit, according to the United States embassy in New Delhi. Delhi was dubbed a ?gas chamber? by its chief minister, and the federal government was widely criticised after US-based United Airlines suspended flights to New Delhi because of the pollution. Sri Lankan cricket players threw up on the field during a match in the Indian capital last December. Government officials have vowed to reduce the pollution. Cricketers continue to flounder in New Delhi?s hazardous smog New Delhi authorities face scathing criticism over their lack of action to combat pollution ?A strong message has to go down that pollution is a serious economic and health issue and it is linked to our national image too,? Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan said at the launch of a ?Clean Air Campaign? last week. ?We mean business now.? Farmers are welcoming the plan since the majority of them cannot afford the machinery on their own. ?For farmers, the cost of most agricultural machineries are prohibitive,? said Kartar Singh, a farmer from Punjab. ?And that?s why the subsidy will come as a relief to those who want to buy modern harvesters and straw management machines.? US-based John Deere and India?s Mahindra & Mahindra are some of the main sellers of farm machinery in India. Other plans to deal with the stubble include state electric utility NTPC buying it to use as fuel in a coal-fired power plant.
  10. Kei Saito of Japan trains during Short Track Speed Skating practice ahead of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games/File photo PYEONGCHANG: Japanese short track speed skater Kei Saito failed an out-of-competition doping test on the day of his arrival in Pyeongchang and has been expelled from the Winter Olympics, Japan team officials said on Tuesday. Saito, a reserve athlete who had not yet competed in South Korea, was provisionally suspended after testing positive for masking agent acetalozamide and a final ruling would be issued after the Games, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said. Masking agents are often used to cover up banned performance-enhancing substances. This is the first doping case during the testing period of the Olympics in South Korea and comes as Tokyo prepares to host the Summer Games in 2020.Team Japan officials said Saito was tested hours after arriving in the athletes´ village on Feb 4.The athlete said he was stunned by the finding. "I am shocked by this as I have never tried to commit doping," Saito said in a statement. "I have been trained in anti-doping. I have never taken a steroid so there is no need for me to mask something, and I never had to drop weight by using this medicine. "So I have no motivation to use this. I want to prove my innocence but I do not want to burden my team so I accepted this decision," he said. Team chief Yasuo Saito said the athlete had also been tested at a training camp on Jan. 29 on the order of the International Skating Union (ISU) and his test was negative. "We respect the athlete and his will and intentions, and in conjunction with the Japanese skating federation we will continue to look into this matter with all our means," he added. The team chief said it was "inexplicable" how the athlete could have tested positive but in order not to burden his team mates he agreed with the International Olympic Committee proposal to have him removed from the Games. He added that while the suspension was only provisional it was better for the athlete to leave as there was no time to clear his name. "There was no opportunity to prove his innocence during the Olympic Games. It was a difficult decision, one he did not want to take, but he accepted to leave the Olympic village so as not to cause problems for his fellow team members," the team chief said. Doping cases are rare among Japanese athletes and this is the first for the country at a Winter Olympics. Last month, however, sprint canoeist Yasuhiro Suzuki admitted to spiking a rival´s drink with an anabolic steroid to scuttle his Olympic dream, and was banned for eight years. He now faces a lifetime ban from the Japan canoe federation.
  11. Kapil Mohan, the creator of Old Monk is not with us anymore, but what stays behind is the legendary rum he gave us, which was probably our first and the best companion when we entered adulthood. Old Monk is not just a mere drink, it's a religion and if there was ever a cult to be made for Old Monk, I will run as the President for that group. I am sure just like me, all those who swear by this drink will unanimously agree that for us Old Monk is the only rum in the world, theirs is no other brand and there never will be any. © Facebook Be it celebrating the good things that happened to us, the friends we made in college over a glass of rum, or dealing with our first heartbreak; Old Monk has all the rights to proudly take credit for all the major milestones in our lives. Paying a tribute to one of the best things ever made in the world, here's a short film that will take you to a walk down the memory lane to reminisce the good ol' memories and times you all have shared with Old Monk. © switch off films Sanjay Mishra is one of the finest actors in Bollywood and when he takes up any movie, you know it's going to be special and when you throw in a bottle of Old Monk into the same frame, you know that you are signing up for something incredible and emotional. And this short film titled 'Monk' does exactly that, it taps into all those memories and emotions you share with your friends and leaves you teary-eyed by the end of the film. Produced by Switch Off Films, this short film also stars Jeetu Shastri as the friend who Mishra shares his drink with. As we enjoy the duo's friendly banter and how they recollect all the crazy things they did in the past, by the end of it we realize that he was drinking all alone while remembering his close friend. Honestly, there could not have been a better tribute to acknowledge the spirit of Old Monk and the long lasting friendships it has helped weave. So go ahead and tag your friends to let them know how much you love them and how dearly you miss those Old Monk sessions you had with them.
  12. Joe Root fell for 83 in the closing moments of the first day, Australia v England, 5th Ashes Test, Sydney, 1st day, January 4, 2018/Getty Images SYDNEY: England skipper Joe Root again missed out on an elusive first century in the series as Australia fought back with two late wickets on the opening day of the fifth Test on Thursday. Root was out to a superb diving catch by Mitchell Marsh at square leg for 83 in the day´s penultimate over before Jonny Bairstow was caught behind in the final over. Root slumped to his haunches in dismay after missing out on a hundred following his fourth half-century of the series. Root and Malan recovered England´s first innings with a 133-run stand after the tourists had slumped to 95 for three following the loss of Melbourne double-centurion Alastair Cook. Malan lived a charmed life in his half-century, surviving a run out attempt and a dropped Steve Smith catch to provide stoic support for his skipper. At the close, England were 233 for five with Malan left unbeaten on 55 off 160 balls when Bairstow was caught behind off Josh Hazlewood for five. Root reached his half-century off 82 balls cover driving Mitchell Marsh for four, but Malan was fortunate not to be run out two balls later. Malan, on 28, cut towards backward point and there was confusion over the run with Root steaming down the pitch and Malan stuttering and then setting off for the non-striker´s end. But the throw from wicketkeeper Tim Paine was off target and bowler Nathan Lyon was unable to effect the run out with Malan well out of his ground. Malan had another life on 34 when Smith dropped a sharp ankle-high chance at slip off Lyon. Cook out on review Only last week in Melbourne Smith put down two catches in Alastair Cook´s unbeaten double century. Cook, who carried his bat through the England first innings in the fourth Test for an unbeaten 244, looked on his way to another big score until Josh Hazlewood struck in the 33rd over. Hazlewood´s leg before wicket appeal was turned down on-field, but on review the ball was found to be just pitching in line with the left-hander´s leg stump and hitting middle and Cook was given out for 39 off 104 balls. It was the third time in the series Cook has fallen lbw and it left him just five runs short of 12,000 career Test runs in his 152nd Test match. Fellow opener Mark Stoneman earlier hit some nice drives among his four fours before he nicked a rising Pat Cummins delivery to Tim Paine for 24 off 24 balls in the 10th over. James Vince looked set after 82 minutes at the crease before he shaped for a square cut at a wide Cummins delivery only to be caught behind for 25 in the 29th over. Usman Khawaja jarred his left knee as he carved out a large chunk of topsoil in sliding to prevent a boundary off Malan in the 56th over but returned to the field later. Australia have already clinched the Ashes with an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-Test series. England are bidding to break through in Sydney, where they have won twice in the last four Ashes Tests. After a rain delay and an early lunch, play finally got under way at 12.40pm (0140 GMT).
  13. Whether it's Xmas or the New Year, you have got to get in your workouts. Always remember that! Since most of y'all would already be cheating on your diets, try to squeeze in a workout anyway. If you are short on time because of the festivities and hangovers, we have got your back. This here is a complete chest workout that will barely take you 30 minutes to accomplish and trust us, those 30 minutes will be well worth the sweat. Let's get right into it. Exercise Selection 1) Incline Dumbbell Press © YouTube 2) Pec-Deck Fly © YouTube 3) Low Pulley Cable Fly © YouTube Workout Progression The main focus here will be to proceed into the workout in a circuit. This means that you will first do the incline dumbell press, immediately followed by a Pec-Dec Fly and then a Low Pulley Cable Fly. Perform one after the other and rest only when you are done with all three exercises. Weight Selection, Repetition Tempo, Sets And Rest Periods While working on a dumbbell press, for the first set, select the optimum weight with which you can perform 6-8 reps with 70% of your max effort. There will be a total of 4 sets and for the next three sets select the weights you can do 6-8 reps with 80%, 90% and 100% of your max effort, respectively. 6-8 will be the reps range. On the pec-deck and low pulley fly, select the same reps and weight scheme. Both of these exercises are more 'feel the movement' rather than pushing really heavy plates. So be aware of what you are doing. Rest only for a minute and a half after completing one round of pressing, pec-deck flys and low-pulley cables flys. Maximum Time Under Tension: Squeeze And Hold This entire workout is tied around the logic of maximum time under tension. This isn't CrossFit, so don't rush your reps. Make it a point to feel each and every repetition. Squeeze when on top and control the lowering phase on all the three exercises. The more control and squeeze you have, the better will be the muscle recruitment and hence, stimulation. There you go guys, a short and painful workout for the holidays. Happy getting jacked in 2018.
  14. Revenge is a dish best served sweet, sprinkled with badassery and sarcasm and Tisca Chopra just proved it like a boss, in this short film called 'Churri'. What will you do if you find out that your partner is cheating on you? You will either lose your sh*t and angrily confront that person or have an emotional breakdown, or leave that person and possibly wish to never cross paths with them in your life ever again. © churri short film But, doing what Tisca did in this short film is possibly the last thing to ever roam in the closest vicinity of your mind and definitely needs lots of courage too. And this is what is making us bow down in front of Tisca (for her incredible acting) and her character (for being as strong as a rock and sharp as a knife in teaching her husband the best possible lesson). While Tisca plays the wife, Anurag Kashyap and Surveen Chawla also do a commendable job in the movie as the husband and the woman he is cheating with. We won't reveal what her ultimate revenge on her husband was; you can watch it here for yourself and simply marvel. Tisca Chopra is a powerhouse of phenomenal acting, a glimpse of which we have already seen in 'Taare Zameen Par' and 'Chutney'. This time around too, it took her only 12 minutes to blow our minds away, leaving us with a plot twist we were least expecting. People can't get enough of 'Churri' and have flooded the Internet with messages praising both Tisca's performance and the short film. So much thrill & tension in just 12 calm yet brutal minutes of #Chhuri. Steady build-up, and turning of the knife. Tisca Chopra @tiscatime has taken short-film making to a new level https://t.co/NkA6hyy3Md via @YouTube — Shekhar Gupta (@ShekharGupta) December 20, 2017 What a film #Chhuri.. kudos @anuragkashyap72 @tiscatime @SurveenChawla and I can see Evershine Redwood Tisca ðð https://t.co/ekOSVtDRFr — Vinod Kapri (@vinodkapri) December 20, 2017 Short, sharp and so, so layered. #Chhuri is absolutely delightful.

  15. 'They' say good things come in small packages, especially if they are women. It's still not known why guys like dating shorter women but the fact is they actually do and trust us; there are a few interesting things common in short girls that guys really dig. We did a little bit of research on why shorter girls are always a preference and here are 7 things that set them apart! They're Easy To Cuddle Stretch your arms out to her and she'll fit right in! Perfect fit that too and she's adorable to cuddle, especially during the winters. The *** Positions Are Thrilling *** becomes an Olympic sport with short women. You can toss her around, spin her in mid-air and try out a dozen positions with her. The best position, hands down, is doggy style. Try it! No Compromising on Space There She will fit in just about anywhere. So, in case you have space issues, just place her wherever you wish to and she'll fit right in. She'll fit in best on your lap, if there is no more room in the car, saving you space! She's Adorable When She's Trying To Get To Places Do this for fun- if shes always on her phone, not giving you enough time, hide her phone somewhere beyond her reach. Her struggle to get her phone back will be the most adorable thing you'll see all week! More Space In Bed No matter how much space you take up in bed, she will always leave you enough to be comfortable in. She's also the best to spoon with because she fits right in (know what we mean?) Her Inner Child Is Always Alive She's always on her toes, and living 'up' to her height. Naughty and playful, her inner child is always alive and you'll love the energy she expels. She's Fiercely Independent She has made a concrete effort to make herself fiercely independent because she believes the world doesn't take her seriously because of her 'short'comings. She's quite a pocket dragon, this one. No wonder we find so many tall men dating women way shorter to them. They've certainly realised that the best things in life, come in 'smaller' quantities.
  16. It might have scored top of the box office, but Justice League didn't have the super opening weekend predicted, falling short of expectations with takings of $96 million, according to industry estimates released Sunday. With an all-star cast including Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman, Justice League ? based on the DC Comics superheroes team ? sees a mash-up of classic characters fend off the threat of supervillain Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds). The big-budget Warner Bros production ? which fared better internationally, taking $185 million ? was forecast to earn $110 million in North American cinemas, according to Variety. Meanwhile, in at second ? earning $27.1 million ? was Lionsgate's newly-released Wonder, according to box-office tracker Exhibitor Relations. Starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay, Wonder follows the journey of August Pullman, a young boy with facial differences, as he enters the fifth grade at a mainstream school for the first time. After thundering to the top spot last week, Thor: Ragnarok slipped into third place in its third weekend in cinemas, taking $21.8 million. Featuring the self-mocking humor of Chris Hemsworth as the powerful Norse god alongside Cate Blanchett as Hela, goddess of death, Thor has raked in an impressive $247.4 million since its release in North American cinemas. Meanwhile, Paramount's Daddy's Home 2 halved its earnings from last weekend, dropping to fourth place with $14.8 million. The festive comedy stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as Brad and Dusty, who join forces to give their kids the perfect holiday ? an effort challenged when their own fathers show up. In at fifth was Fox's Murder on the Orient Express, earning $13.8 million. The fourth television or cinema adaptation of Agatha Christie's classic detective novel, the murder mystery was directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars as part of an A-list cast including Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz and Judi Dench. Rounding out the top 10 were: 1. The Star ($10 million) 2. A Bad Moms Christmas ($6.9 million) 3. Lady Bird ($2.5 million) 4. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ($1.1 million) 5. Jigsaw ($1.1 million)
  17. Unless you believe in the magic of day dreaming, there's hardly a chance you'll solve things without any effort. Concept application: while dressing for your height. Though, nothing can lengthen your body length for you, certain style tips/tricks create illusions of extended height. And if there's anyone who's single handedly raining on this parade, it's our handlebar mascot—Aamir Khan. In recent times, nothing that we've seen off the actor's wardrobe, has let us down on the style front. Sure, we've never witnessed anything extraordinary in his menswear, but there's a lot to learn from Mr. Khan anyway. He has always, without fail, succumbed himself to dressing for his (comparatively) short height. And if you're eyeing examples of our former statement, let's give you five. 1. For Lesson #1, you need a well-fitted pair of jeans in life. Nothing too baggy or low-rise, but a rather high/medium-rise pair of denim bottoms. No way in hell should you look stumpier than usual! Plus, darker the colour/wash, better for you. By doing so, you'll divert one's attention from the bottom to top—resulting in the illusion of extended length. Of course, Mr. Khan is hitting the hammer here! © Viral Bhayani 2. Joggers are way too chill, man. Having said that, cuffed joggers can cause havoc in men who're a little too short. But if you're maintaining a scooped neckline, dwindly hem and ending it right below the hip, there's nothing stopping your high stakes with style. © Viral Bhayani 3. Anyone short in height doesn't need to stay away from anything that stands-out. You can certainly stink of a pop colour sometimes, even if it's at the cost of wearing pink—that unfortunately, can turn you into a public joke. That said, if you do it anyway, wear a well-fitted pair and one ending right above the ankle. Plus, balance it all out with not-heeled, but well-elevated footwear. © Viral Bhayani 4. The point is, when you're short, you can't expose your natural body lines. Keep your apparel well-fitted, but leave some space for the imagination—distract people away from your flaws. Like here, if you're thinking of going in for a layering piece, look at fuller arms. They'll create a more streamlined view on your top half, eventually extending your length for you. © Viral Bhayani 5. Even though a hoodie is a kickass go-to option most times, a suit jacket is the best bet. By building up your shoulders and since pronounced shoulders lengthen your height, you're going to appear taller, come what may. But, pick a jacket that fits right—don't choke yourself with it. That'll just make you look shorter! © Viral Bhayani
  18. Let's pat Varun Dhawan's back: never in his Audi-driven privileged life of an actor has he let us down on the style front. Plus, much like our three-blocks-away brospeph in relatable brands, easy-to-cop pieces and anything/everything you'd want to get behind—he's turning into our big sartorial homie. But that doesn't mean we've never had our guards on him; one wrong move and we'd still be quick to notice. But well, however unrealistic this may sound to you, Mr. Dhawan hasn't succumbed to a menswear blunder yet. In fact, his recent appearance on the airport catwalk happens to be a splendid example of an outfit every short man needs to own. Know how? Let's break this down for you. © Viral Bhayani 1. The might of a fitted jacket/blazer. However short in length your body could be, a well-fitted jacket will always do you good. For one, it'll help build up your shoulders (eventually adding height) and in fact, with a beefed-up motorcycle jacket like Varun, you might end up doing more than just that. And as a ground rule, always opt for a slimming fit—to make your chest look bigger and waist slimmer. 2. Shirts can't go past the hip bone. See, if you're short, you better be tucking your shirts in on most days of the week. Unless of course, you want to appear shorter. But if not that, at least end your shirts right at the hip bone—to give yourself a slimmer silhouette and the illusion of longer legs. © Viral Bhayani 3. Apparel lengths are PS3. Obsess over them! Playing with apparel lengths with every outfit you wear will distract viewers away from all your body length issues. Because really, with a great mix of lengths in the top-half of your outfit, there will be no time left for height scrutiny. In Varun's case, his shirt's the longest, the jacket a little shorter and the T-shirt's clearly the dwarf here. 4. Ignore short sleeves like exes. Short sleeves on short men make their arms appear shorter. So basically, stay away from them. © Viral Bhayani 5. Lastly, visit a goddamn tailor or be a pro-trier. While it's anyway a necessity for men of various heights, short men really need a damn tailor in life. Because the baseline remains: the right fit will accentuate your best body parts and hide the flaws. But if nothing, at least get a really slim-fitted pair of bottoms for yourself. Trials rooms could be annoying but deal with it, man.
  19. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday took to Twitter and said the ultimate losers will be those on the wrong side of history for short-term gains and benefits. The tweet by the former prime minister's daughter was a reaction to a video clip from a local news channel in which the PPP displayed its unwillingness to accept delimitation on the basis of the census. ?The matter is something else,? Maryam added in the tweet. The two parties, PML-N and PPP, have been at odds in recent times. Earlier today, PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira claimed that the PML-N does not want the democratic process to operate smoothly. "Democracy doesn't suit the ruling party right now," Kaira claimed, "so the PML-N has been trying to push the institutions to their limits". Democracy does not suit PML-N: Kaira 'PML-N doesn?t want the democratic process to operate smoothly' Discussing the possibility of early elections in Pakistan, Kaira remarked that his party believes in democracy and doesn't support the notion of early elections. Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Monday rejected calls for early elections on Monday and said the assemblies will be dissolved on June 5, 2018, after completing their constitutional tenure. Iqbal had further said all political parties of the country had agreed that the provisional results of the census would be used to hold the next general elections and it is not possible to conduct next year's elections on the results of the 1998 census. He said it would be unfair to the smaller provinces if the elections are held on the results of the '98 census.
  20. 6-packer and all-around-chill-dude Farhan Akhtar is possibly one of the biggest multi-hyphenates in Bollywood right now. Is there anything the man can't do? He is a brilliant director, a smart producer, a proven actor and his raspy (read: bedroom-approved) singing voice is a blockbuster hit with the ladies. And unlike his contemporaries who are constantly trying to win the fashion world—one bomber at a time—Mr. Akhtar's ability to look past trends, and stick to elevated classics that always work for his body type, is noteworthy! © Viral Bhayani But at 5 feet 7 inches, Mr. Akhtar is not as tall as we'd like him to be. He is in fact quite average—only in terms of height, obviously. But if you look carefully at his airport looks and red carpet appearances—Farhan always looks much taller than he is. In fact, all thanks to his smart-ass styling, he looks at least 5'10”. © Viral Bhayani According to Google, the average height of a modern Indian man is 5 feet 4.9 inches. Woah, that's short! In fact, very short. And even though being short is no crime, in an ideal world, we would all like to be tall and handsome. But since we cannot make ourselves taller, we can definitely wear clothes that help us gain a few extra inches. © Viral Bhayani Here's how: Fitted at the top: The classic white V-neck T-shirt has the right fit and doesn't hang on him like an oversized poncho. Tailored Bottoms: Next up the jeans that are the right amount of skinny, ending at the ankle, right before where his white kicks begin. Avoid Bulk: No layering and minimal accessories—a pair of dope-ass sunnies and a smartwatch finish his look. © Viral Bhayani Moral of the story? If you are shorter than usual, you need to avoid baggy layers, ill-fitted trousers and all-things-chunky.
  21. Have you ever shot a video of your intimate moments? Or clicked a picture of you and your partner being intimate? If yes, then this short film is just the thing you need to watch right now! Be it casual outings with friends or close, intimate moments with the loved ones, the incredible camera smartphones available today help up capture that perfect moment whenever we want. Thus, many of us go ahead and film these private moments on our smartphones, not realizing the repercussions of privacy breach. In the heat of the moment, it may all seem fun and thrilling but sometimes it turns into a gruelling nightmare. Educating the tech-savvy millennials about the meaning of 'safe ***', Manforce Condoms have made this powerful short film called 'Love Can Take A Wrong Turn'. The short film starts off with a couple on their honeymoon, who like many others, have filmed their intimate moments. But what happens next could easily happen with any one of us, making us vulnerable to illegal pornography. The statistics of leaked videos and images that have made their way to pornographic sites is staggering and it's time we play smart and safe! It's time for us to #ShutThePhoneUp and indulge in 'Safe ***' because your private moments should stay private.
  22. BACKGROUND: Max Crocombe's Twitter account (@Meeiix) LONDON: Goalkeeper Max Crocombe is likely to feature in trivia quizzes after getting sent off for urinating beside his goal during his side Salford City's match with Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday. The 24-year-old New Zealander ? whose non-league side is part-owned by five former Manchester United stars, including Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs ? was red-carded late in the match which was attended by just 533 spectators. His desperate desire to answer the call of nature ? but not requesting the game to be stopped, so he could run to the bathroom ? was spotted by eagle-eyed officials and the referee duly wielded the red card. Initial bemusement as to the reason for his sudden departure turned to amazement when Bradford Park Avenue tweeted: "We can confirm that Crocombe has been sent off for urinating during the game. We are not joking." Salford held on to win 2-1. A contrite Crocombe later took to Twitter to apologise for his behaviour. "I'd like to sincerely apologise for the incident today. I was in a very uncomfortable position and made an error in judgement which spoiled a great win," he tweeted. "My intention was never to offend anyone and I'd like to apologise to both clubs and both sets of supporters and it won't happen again." Crocombe is not the first goalkeeper to surrender to nature. Former Germany and Arsenal star Jens Lehmann ran behind an advertising hoarding to relieve himself during a Champions League game in 2009 when he was at Stuttgart.
  23. Every day, I ask myself the same damn question, "Do I look good today?" And every single day, the answer is, "Man, that looks good. Let's go break some necks." This really is a typical Mon-Sun resume for men. Most of us yearn to look our best, dress to the T, flaunt flattering pieces and turn at least one head in a day. Unless of course, you're an engineer or constitute the DGAF crew. But that's just us. Taimur's father and Kareena's privileged husband, Saif Ali Khan knocks himself out with various other things. One of them being—the proportions of his outfit. © Viral Bhayani To be frank, this is the epitome of the Snip and Rule policy. The shorts wanted to appear superior, so they snipped themselves from the bottom and the dad-boy T-shirt is almost like it's waiting for a helping hand to stretch it out. The shorts are higher than a thigh high slit and Saif's top half is appearing broader and bigger because of the terrible length of his T-shirt. Short story, cut short: these are the style chops you just can't cop. © Viral Bhayani But we'll be honest, we've been the biggest fans of Saif Ali Khan's effortless dad style. His baseball caps, narrow-toed dress shoes, relaxed fit jeans, checked shirt over a T-shirt tricks have all gone down very well with us. But well, some rules are non-negotiable with fashion. You can't wear over sized white pyjamas with a Nehru jacket or shorts that shorter than the life of a fly. © Viral Bhayani Here's how he could have evaded these waters: 1) Since Mr. Khan's not very tall, his shorts should have ended 2-3 inches above the knee. As a result, if not elongating his legs, his legs would have definitely noy looked shorter than usual. Breaking your top half and bottom half appropriately is v.v important. 2) If you're wearing a T-shirt and lift your arms up high, you're wearing the wrong length if your belly pops. The right T-shirt length ends right below your hips and a few inches below the top of your shorts/trousers. © Viral Bhayani But one place where the man hasn't budged at all is his love for the evergreen Kolhapuris. And to us, that's completely fair. That's his style and he should stand by it. All in all, if you still think you're a superhuman who can carry off these shorts anyway, remember to not skip leg day.
  24. You know how you see couples with huge height differences? Like, if the woman is a 4 ft 11 inches and the man is a good 6 feet tall, towering over her? Turns out, they're more likely to have a successful and happy relationship than most. Borlem You see, the key lies in the difference of heights. And now, there's even science to back that up. According to a recent study, the couples with biggest height differences have the best relationships and make perfect marriages. And that's not all. The study further divulges specific details that prove that shorter wives and taller husbands actually make for the most ideal of relationships and are stronger as a couple than most others. Also, taller men as it would turn out, seem to have a more sexually satisfied appetite than most other men. And when you really do put two and two together, you'd come to realize that in a lot of ways, these dynamics and facts have been right about romantic relationships, with or without the quantification of a scientific study. Huffington Post “Although it has been known that women prefer tall men in mating for evolutionary reasons, no study has investigated whether a taller husband makes his wife happier. A greater height difference in a couple was positively related to the wife's happiness,” explains Dr Sohn in the Journal Of Personality and Individual Differences. The study further goes on to reveal that husbands play a rather significant role in building and making a relationship last and stand the test of time. Women with taller husbands generally tend to be happier in their relationships than most others. Pinterest This isn't to say that most other relationships aren't built to last. A scientific study and a general obvious dynamic do not determine the elasticity of a relationship. It has a lot more to do with two people and the kind of connection they share with each other. And if the love and the connection are deeply intertwined, I highly doubt a difference in height can really influence one's relationships much. So, couples who don't have much of a height difference between the two spouses, don't feel disheartened. Your relationship is based on a lot more than just height differences and scientific studies. Take it with a pinch of salt.
  25. Rock band Aerosmith announced Tuesday it was cutting short its tour of South America after frontman Steven Tyler flew back to the US due to "unexpected medical issues." "To everybody in South America ? Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico ? I'm very sorry and feel like I've let you down," the 69-year-old wrote in a statement posted on Twitter, which did not specify the nature of the illness. "I won't be able to continue the last four shows of this tour. I flew back to the US on doctor's orders last night. "Please not to worry," he continued, "I am not in a life-threatening condition, but I need to deal with this right away and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain my future performances... As they say, 'We humans make plans, and God laughs.'" The band played on Monday night in Sao Paulo after performing on Thursday in Rio de Janeiro. The cities cut from the tour were Curitiba, Brazil; Santiago, Chile; Rosario, Argentina; and Monterrey, Mexico. Aerosmith announced last year they were doing a "farewell" tour for 2017 but stopped short of saying the shows would be their finale. The Boston-bred hard rock group formed in 1970 and are behind such classics as "Dream On," "Walk This Way" and "Janie's Got a Gun."
