  1. It was an important day yesterday. Well, to be precise, the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday. Captain America is an integral part of Avengers and Chris Evans is an integral part of his MCU costars' life. Birthday wishes were pouring in from everywhere - even from us - and it was great to see everyone come together to celebrate this human golden retriever. Mark Ruffalo being cute like always. Happiest of birthdays to the fantastic @ChrisEvans ð¥³ð Love you, Bro. Always there when you need him. Wishing you all the best today! pic.twitter.com/WJT2kbudN5 — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) June 13, 2019 Even Chris is happy and cute while replying. Awwww, buddy. You're a gem ð — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 13, 2019 And, Mark wasn't done. Glad you are here, man. — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) June 13, 2019 Okay, that sounds a little serious, I hope everything's fine. Then comes another Chris wishing him, actually singing 'happy birthday' for him on air with Tessa Thompson. Since both Evans and Hemsworth are like BFFs, the school kids who had to be separated during interviews, I'm disappointed Hemsworth didn't post a goofy BTS picture for him. But now let's look at the birthday wish we were waiting for. Yes, Robert Downey Jr HAD to top every birthday wish Chris got yesterday. One of the best parts of 'Avengers: Endgame' was the whole Cap vs Cap scene, but do you remember how it ended? Yes, with Cap admiring his own ass. Well, even RDJ remembers and wished 'America's ass' a happy birthday. Happy birthday to America's ass. The world's a better place, and I owe you a kiss on the cheek! @ChrisEvans pic.twitter.com/iCFRSu0DIH — Robert Downey Jr (@RobertDowneyJr) June 13, 2019 Take the kiss, Chris! ðð — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 13, 2019 Like that. AHHHHHH pic.twitter.com/mKAhKUTrbm — rebekah (@stevetonyx) June 13, 2019 Same. Rdj is me looking at this post pic.twitter.com/A2U5eYLdn9 — Our Love: Robert Downey Jr (@our_rdj) June 13, 2019 That gif tho. Some things really should be celebrated! ð¨ #HappyBirthdayChrisEvans pic.twitter.com/Gpsl1HBWrS — Chris Evans USA FanSource (@ChrisEvans_USA) June 13, 2019 That emoji is reserved for Chris Evans and Chris Evans only. ð pic.twitter.com/Jf7pQiS6Qg — Christopher (@stevngrntrogers) June 13, 2019 We won't get to see this again. They are so cute together I'm really gonna miss them so muchð­ð­ pic.twitter.com/2yQMNH2QIb — Team Downey (@TeamDowney1965) June 13, 2019
  2. By now, every single person knows that Keanu Reeves is the best person in Hollywood. I have literally never heard anything negative about the guy and since he's immortal, he's been alive for like centuries, so it's a good track record. The only time he's in news is when he does a movie or when he does a nice thing and shows everyone again how humble and down to earth he is. Well, this time, since 'John Wick 3 Parabellum' just released, we're talking about how nice he is, yet again. Recently, someone noticed something Keanu does whenever he gets a picture clicked with a woman. He always extends his hand so as to not exactly touch the other person. While it might seem over the top, it's better than people making up stories based on one innocent picture. Or maybe, he's just anxious and it's not that deep. Whatever the case may be, everyone is loving this seemingly small thing, just like people basically love everything Keanu ever does. Lol Keanu ain't taking no chances. ððpic.twitter.com/nnfIOZKbT1 — Kemoy Lindsay (@KemziLinzi) June 9, 2019 Exactly. cAnnot believe this bunch of morons thinks keanu being respectful is bc he "doesn't wanna get hit with a lawsuit". **** off. he just ain't a fucking creep like you. https://t.co/IUDa2tY0PG — lolly ð(@f_ingspacequeen) June 10, 2019 Good explanation. I don't think embracing someone asking to take a picture with you is disrespectful, in theory. But choosing to still respect their personal space is smart because it is thoughtful. — Jacquis Neal (@jacquisneal) June 9, 2019 The great tweet and pun. John Grip — Maximus Desimus (@redcurrymonster) June 9, 2019 What a gif. pic.twitter.com/1THTLcpbGl — Chagres (@ChagresPTY) June 9, 2019 Yep. Honestly the only hero we have left — Cameron Kasky (@cameron_kasky) June 9, 2019 Hmm. Just a thought... perhaps Keanu recognized that not one of these women gave him their consent to touch him and I don't know, he respected their bodily autonomy. Keanu showing everyone how to be respectful might be a potential takeaway as well. This is just a thought though. — Dave- kindness costs nothing (@strikeoutss) June 10, 2019 Well, he has good manners. It's called “manner hands” And is used by many men around the world (mainly Asian countries). — KARD Thots // #JIWOOSBOOBMOLE (@dayona_devasia) June 9, 2019 We sure do! We stan a respectful king — ð¿ELLE ð¿(@ellektrikk) June 10, 2019
  3. Have you ever wondered how a classic man just enters a room and makes an impression? It's quite simple if you actually think about it. Some people have the power to make heads turn just with the fresh fragrance they have used. Believe us, they don't bathe in the cologne, rather follow a routine to draw the green eyes. These are the secret ingredients to smell good, 24x7. 1. Caring for what you wear, every day © Getty Images The way you treat your clothes says a lot about your personality. Doing your laundry regularly ensures that you don't stack up on dirty and stinky clothes. To smell fresh, slot this habit in your daily routine. 2. Oral hygiene is important © Getty Images Bad breath is a mood killer. It can instantly become a topic of conversation and to not let yourself fall in the pit of embarrassment, remember to brush your teeth twice a day. Use a floss and carry a mint box handy with you wherever you go. 3. Look for the right scent © Getty Images Take some time out from your busy schedule to look for a scent that suits your personality. Invest in a good quality and a long lasting perfume. 4. Keep a check on your personal hygiene © Getty Images Taking a shower daily, wearing fresh underpants and washing your hands with a mild soap after every meal - these three habits go a long way. Trust us, the fragrance stays intact and makes you smell fresh throughout the day. 5. Hydrate yourself enough © Getty Images Now that oral hygiene has been checked off, there's another add-on to it. Keep drinking water at regular intervals to boost your metabolism and not have bad breath. 6. Spraying right © Getty Images Spraying your perfume everywhere is not going to earn you extra points, rather spray on the pulse points. The smell spreads from the bottom, so, begin with ankles, then behind the knees, wrist, chest and behind your ears to ensure a lasting fragrance. 7. Keep your skin moisturised © Getty Images Speaking of hydration, water is not only a best friend to your body, but also for your skin. Alongside, use a moisturiser for that glow and good smelling skin. In the end, all we want to say is that stay committed to the routine and you'll trail an aura worth talking about.
  4. If you're a gym bunny, you'll definitely agree with the statement that good shirtless selfies can act as an extremely potent motivator, when it comes to fitness. We should all be fit, because of a million reasons that we read about every single day, and the vanity bit associated with shirtless selfies are just a bi-product of that. However, if that pushes us to the gym and Yoga studios, what's wrong with that? We all like validation for our hard work, and that perhaps is the most harmless of them all. (c) Instagram/mrkhanna So homies, keep on clicking those gym selfies, if they make you happy. Haters will hate, no matter what. To help you out, here are 3 clever, tried and tested hacks to help you look more muscular and shredded in shirtless selfies. 1. Check the lighting. By that, we don't essentially mean that there should be plenty of light in your frame. Sometimes, you can do with little light as well. What you need to take care of is the angle. For indoor shots, like locker room shots or bathroom shots, top lighting works the best. If a light on the ceiling is the only source of light, stand underneath that and take 2 steps back. This arrangement will make your abs pop, and give extra definition to all your muscles. (c) Instagram/ranveersingh If it's daytime and you're standing next to a window, or any place with daylight, avoid letting the light hit you straight, flat on your body. Let it come from the side. Diagonal with a steep angle works the best because it makes your muscles look extra defined. (c) Instagram/soorajpancholi 2. When are you clicking it. Timing is important. If you want to look shredded, it's important to make sure you avoid clicking selfies when your body is retaining a lot of water. Immediately after a workout is a great time to ensure that does not happen. Early in the morning, before ingesting anything works out as well. Keep your core tight, suck your gut in, stretch your abdomen a bit, and you're sorted! (c) Instagram/varundvn 3. Your skin plays a big role in deciding how the selfie will come out. Your skin needs to be moisturised to be able to look more defined, because glossy surfaces look well-defined - it's common sense, really. So make sure you apply some moisturiser all over just before clicking it. However, you don't need that if you have just completed your workout and you're all sweaty from it anyway. Also, our skin looks the best right after a shower, so that may just be the best time to click a shirtless selfie. (c) Instagram/ranveersingh Keep them in mind and get ready for all the DMs.
  5. In a world of binge-watching, fast food, swiping right, social media and deadlines, we hardly get time to pause and give undivided attention to something. Be it our lifestyle choices or daily routines, everything needs to be convenient and quick, especially when we are on the go. And this everything also includes our beard-grooming routine that needs to be fuss-free, quick, and under 10 minutes. So here's a tried-and-tested, everyday grooming regime that is designed specially to cater to men with tight schedules. To add the cherry on the top, Team MensXP also incorporated organic and natural grooming products from Qtrove.com which made all the difference in the world. The routine is practical, clever, and quick. Check it out! 1. A Quick Wash Qtrove.com The first rule of maintaining a thick, healthy beard is to ditch the regular soaps for a good beard wash, preferably something which is organic and natural. When you go for your morning shower, use a beard shampoo that will clean the hair from root to tip in a jiffy. We recommend the Almond and Thyme Beard Wash by The Man Company for your daily use. The product is 100% natural, and is infused with premium essential oils that have a relaxing effect on the skin and promote thick, strong, and shiny growth. Buy the product here. 2. Oiling Is A Must Qtrove.com After you are done with the wash, make sure you towel-dry and finger-comb your beard. Try and avoid blow drying. Next, we suggest use a beard oil to restore smoothness and shine to your frizzy beard. This hardly takes a minute! We recommend the Lavender & Cedarwood Beard Oil that moisturises the skin, promotes hair growth and has anti-bacterial benefits that ensure you have a healthy, easy-to-manage beard. The oil has a wonderful blend of lavender and cedarwood extracts - both known for their anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that ensure your beard is healthy always. Buy the product here. Qtrove.com Buy the product here. On some days when you feel like taking a break from the woody fragrance, we recommend the Argan and Geranium Beard Oil, designed specifically to help you grow a lush and manageable beard. Apart from Moroccan Argan and geranium, the product also packs in Frankincense, juniper berry, almond oil, hazelnut oil, and jojoba oil. These ingredients soften the facial hair and enhance the manageability of the beard. 3. Don't Forget To Moisturise Qtrove.com Moisturisation has to be an essential part of your grooming routine. You cannot miss this part, even when you are staying indoors. We recommend the Argan and Mint Beard Creme by The Man Company that moisturises facial hair, reduces itch, and provides nourishment and styling benefits for all types of beards, no matter what the length is. In fact, argan acts a protective cover for your beard against environmental damage, while mint extracts make your beard smell incredible and have a cooling sensation on the skin. The other thing we love about the product is it doesn't add any weight or greasiness to the beard, and trust us, it's a great thing to have especially during summers. Buy the product here. 4. Style It! Qtrove.com Everyone loves to style their beard before they head out. What product you use in the process determines your beard health and growth. We recommend the Argan & Geranium Beard Wax that has toning benefits and encourages beard growth. Besides, argan moisturizes the facial skin and adds a light-weight shine and perfect softness to the beard. Buy the product here. 5. Don't Forget The Sunscreen Qtrove.com A good, healthy beard depends on a good, healthy skin! Make sure every time you step out, you apply sunscreen. If your skin is sunburnt, it affects your beard too. Our go-to product is this Sunscreen Lotion by The Man Company. The product is formulated with sea buckthorn oil and wheat germ oil - both known for their healing properties that shield you from tanning. Buy the product here. You're all set now. And, the good news is all of this took only about 8-10 minutes of your life. Pretty amazing, right? The other good news is since you are using all-natural products in this process, you are not compromising with your beard health. And speaking of conscious choices, Qtrove.com also a vast range of organic and natural products under various categories like food, beverages, home decor, fitness, body and skincare. If you're looking to make a difference in your lifestyle, start with Qtrove.com. Trust us, it has been a huge help so far!
  6. Getting a haircut at a neighbourhood salon is one of those things which Indian men are so accustomed to, that they still prefer it over fancy salons, sometimes in spite of being able to easily afford the latter. The reasons are aplenty, but the bottomline is, the local neighbourhood salon will always score one up against the fancy salon chains, so it's only sagacious on our part to make the most of it. Sometimes, however, things can go wrong, but it can be prevented easily by being a bit vigilant. © Thinkstock/Getty Images How, you ask? Here are 3 things you need to do as soon as you enter a local neighbourhood salon, in order to be able to avoid a bad haircut. 1. Make sure you don't enter it during a rush hour, in other words, avoid a crowded salon. You know how neighbourhood salons work - they earn purely because of their volume of work. They want to be able to attend all the customers, and as a result, the quality of work obviously suffers. No one is at fault here, because India just has that many people. An easy solution? Don't go to the salon during peak hours - for example, weekend afternoons and weekday mornings/evenings. As soon as you see a huge line of people waiting for their turn, please reschedule. This automatically will ensure a better haircut. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 2. Once you enter the salon and sit on your chair, tell Mr Barber to wait for a couple of minutes. Before he picks up his tools and starts the process, communicate to him what exactly you want from him. Be extremely didactic, and don't just assume he knows what to do with your hair. Yes, it's his job to get the haircut done, but it's not his job to read your mind and figure out what you want for your hair. Make sure he listens carefully and understands, before letting him start the process. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3. Be assertive during the process, but not overbearing. Keep a close track of the process by looking into the mirror, and see whether it's going towards the direction you want it to. The moment you see some deviation, immediately but gently point it out. Often, we just let the barber take over, and start watching the hilariously dubbed Tamil/Telugu movie on the TV kept up on a shelf, losing track of the process. The result? Often things drastically go wrong - trivial things that could have easily been prevented, and because it's on your head/face, even the smallest mistake can make you look horrible for a few weeks. Being a little vigilant can help you ensure that you never end up with a bad haircut at a local neighbourhood salon.
  7. Gone are the days when it took us more than a few seconds to put a face to the name Vicky Kaushal. This name is a raging force of charm and talent in the Bollywood industry right now, which began gaining prominence since Vicky won over the hearts of several film critics with his exceptional performance in 'Masaan'. View this post on Instagram Perpetual mood on Set ð... see you all on 14th Sept. #Manmarziyaan ð·: @khamkhaphotoartist A post shared by Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) on Aug 30, 2018 at 11:18pm PDT Vicky followed it up with other notable performances in 'Raazi', 'Manmarziyaan' and more recently with this year's mega-blockbuster 'Uri' where he excellently essayed the role of Major Vihaan Shergill. The film is still being screened at a number of theatres even today and has even crossed the 200 crore mark when it comes to box office collection. View this post on Instagram बलिदान परम धरà¥à¤®à¤¾ । ð®ð³ A post shared by Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) on Jan 4, 2019 at 8:21pm PST 'Uri' gave us a glimpse of Vicky Kaushal's vivacious spirit and versatility, but a recent video showing his crazy moves on the dance floor has been going viral on social media.

  8. Over the years, the concept of women empowerment has been soaring in the sporting arena, making female athletes touch spheres of greatness in every aspect. While a lot of male athletes are earning in crores from their athletic careers, female stars like PV Sindhu have also matched up, for example bagging a Rs. 50 cr. deal with Li Ning is a massive accomplishment for an athlete so young. Talking of Women's Day, here are a few top female athletes of our country who have made our nation proud with their achievements: 1. Jhullan Goswami © Instagram/smriti mandana Jhullan Goswami, a world-class allrounder who has contributed to the Indian Women's cricket for more than a decade now and continues to be a valuable asset for her side. Her number one rank in the ODI format, that too at the age of 36, is itself a testimony to that. Starting off from the age of 15, Goswami has been an inspiration to many young talents around the globe. Earning laurels such as the ICC Women's Cricketer Of The Year, Fastest Bowler, Arjuna Award and Padma Shri, Jhullan stands out to be as one of the biggest stars in Indian Sports. 2. Mary Kom © Reuters “Do not say you're weak, because you are a woman,” a statement given by Mary Kom proves she's a force to be reckoned with. Being the only woman to win the World Amateur Boxing Champion for a record sixth time, she faced gender discrimination at some point of time, to which she handed a k.o and moved on. The fact that 'Magnificent Mary' gave birth to twins in 2007 and then to another son in 2013, and then went ahead to defy all naysayers by making a magnificent comeback to her winning ways, proves her mettle. The nation is proud to have such a fierce warrior. 3. Saina Nehwal © Reuters The former World no.1 in women's badminton is another star of our country who has constantly been a role model for many upcoming female athletes. Kicking off at the age of 16 as the U-19 National champion, Nehwal has never bothered to look back and has been strong in her journey till now. Winning over 24 world titles in her journey so far, the shuttler has inspired people at every step of her life. We hope she goes on to win many more laurels for herself and for the country too. 4. Smriti Mandana © Instagram/@Smriti Mandana Smriti Mandana is yet another Wonder Woman in the Indian Women's cricket team. Taking inspiration from her role-model Jhullan Goswami, Madana has out-performed everyone in recent times, bagging the ICC Women Cricketer of the year and ICC ODI Player of the year awards this year. The 22-year-old herself faced a lot of discrimination in her early days as she was not given admission in any coaching academy just because of her gender. But her parents were the ones who made a proper pitch just for her to practice, believed in her and helped her to reach where she is today. 5. PV Sindhu © Twitter/@pv sindhu PV Sindhu, another superstar in the International Badminton circuit, has worked her way to the top of the Indian sports industry. Being the true example of a star, she has not only excelled in her field but has also given tough competition to many male athletes. Soon after Indian skipper, Virat Kohli signed an eight-year endorsement contract with Puma for around 100 crores, Sindhu also raked in a massive 50 crore deal with Li-Ning for mere four years. Adding to her laurels, she became the first woman to co-pilot Tejas in a recently held Aero India Show.
  9. Nothing goes viral faster than internet fads. Especially, if it involves a first-hand, small activity, consider it a rage. The Vans Challenge is the latest example of that. Apparently, if you randomly throw Vans shoes anywhere, they will always land upright, face-up. Sounds crazy? A little physics-defying, perhaps? We thought so too, but some people claimed this to be the case, and now other people are trying to figure out whether it's true by experimenting with their own shoes, flipping them away mercilessly. Well that was a fun afternoon....ð#VansChallenge pic.twitter.com/NgApQS3wu0 — JD (@JDOfficial) March 5, 2019 A number of videos have emerged online that show how people are successfully proving this 'hypothesis' to be correct, and as a result, the #VansChallenge has been gaining momentum, driving others to try out the same. I had to explain to my mom why I was throwing all my Van's on the floor at 12AM. #Vanschallenge pic.twitter.com/USwUJkpyPX — Kris (@Sw0rnT0Death) March 4, 2019 This #VansChallenge is getting out of hand pic.twitter.com/n8hPF8jnQl — Michael Bridger (@myohmichael__) March 5, 2019 What sorcery is this? However, there also are some people who haven't been as successful at it. Watch till the end ð #VansChallenge @jackiecortez_4 pic.twitter.com/NaBmZJ9vzP — I Z Z Y ð¦ (@israelcortez22) March 4, 2019 Bruh ðyou wilding lmao #VansChallenge pic.twitter.com/GrTkAv2RDr — Kevin (@sadboikeeeevino) March 5, 2019 All we can say is, it's probably worth a try. Brb, going to flip my vans from the balcony.
  10. The world's most expensive player somehow managed to make headlines even when he is not playing on the field. The man himself, Neymar Jr, is currently healing from a foot injury which ruled him out even from the round of 16 clashes against Manchester United. Playing his second season with the French champions, Paris Saint-Germain, the left-winger has scored 20 goals and set up another 11 in just 23 appearances for his team this season. Making his way from Barcelona to PSG in 2017, the Brazilian might head back to La Liga in the coming years, but this time to the Los Blancos and not the Catalans. © Reuters The latest rumours have linked the 27-year-old with a return to Barcelona, however, his father Neymar Sr has ruled out his son's interest in the Catalan club and feels that Neymar is happy in PSG. Whereas in a recent interview in his home country, the Brazilian forward opened up on his potential move to Real Madrid. Despite admitting that he is happy at the French capital, the Sau Paulo lad didn't rule out a move to the current UEFA Champions league holder. "If I want to play for Madrid? They are one of the biggest clubs in the world," he told in an interview at Globo TV. “Any player linked with Real Madrid would feel attracted to player there.” © Reuters Clearing his statement the forward added: "For the love of God, I am not speaking about playing for Madrid, calm down. I feel happy in Paris, I am very well here... but, in the future, nobody knows.” "It is obvious that Real Madrid are a great team, one of the best in the world, I have great respect for them but, today, I see myself in Paris," he said. For the time being, the PSG star is working really hard to recover from his injury and join his side soon. © Reuters As far as PSG is concerned, they hold a firm grip over Manchester United in their Champions League 'Round of 16' tie, thanks to Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe who put up a sparkling performance at the Old Trafford. Coming back to Neymar, it's highly uncertain that the Brazilian would think of a change this soon. He probably will stick to the French champions for the time being and would look for a change in the coming years. Till then, we hope we get to see our beloved Neymar Jr., back on the field again.
  11. If you've been going on a lot of dates recently, you must've realized the importance of cleaning up well. Here's the thing guys, the definition of cleaning up well has really broadened. It does not pass if you simply wear a pair of ironed trousers and a blazer, you also need to take care of yourself by regularly following some grooming habits. The regularity will immediately reflect on your face because there are certain things that women will immediately notice when they see you. 1. If Your Finger Nails Are Groomed Or Not © Gettys images Women will definitely notice your hands. Clean and healthy hands are definitely a plus. Besides, no one wants scaly, dry and dirty hands to hold hands with or even do other things with. Think about it, you would be bothered too if you had to deal with dry scaly and dirty hands. So, keep your finger nails cleans and use a hand cream daily for soft smooth hands. 2. If You Have Random Whiffs On Your Neck © instagram If you have a beard, then these random whiffs on your neck are still acceptable, but if you prefer to be clean shaven except you have random hair strands on your neck, that's a bad place to be in. Don't be lazy and get rid of these strands. 3. If You Have Body Odour © Gettys images Your date might be going really well, but if you raise your arms and suddenly you find her frowning and making funny excuses to leave, you know what went wrong. And the fact of the matter is that this was easily avoidable. Just make sure you're spritzing a fume before you leave the house. 4. If Your Breath Smells Bad via GIPHY You don't want to be in a situation where your date wants to kiss you and you want to return the favour, but once you lean in, the date reflexively takes a step back. This only indicates that you need to fix your bad breath. 5. Nose And Ear Whiffs © Gettys images If you have loose strands of nose and ear whiffs, it's best to get a trimmer and get rid of them because even the smallest of stands can get a woman's attention. 6. Whether Your Eyebrows Are Trimmed Or Not © instagram Unruly strands on your eyebrows look really bad and distracting especially if you're on a date. If you have a uni-brow, fix it because trust me, it's a big turn off.
  12. OnePlus have been making spectacular smartphones that deliver one of the best Android experiences. It offers flagship-level performance and design for a fraction of a premiums smartphone's price. It's powered by Qualcomm's latest chipset every year and has one of the most beloved features i.e. Warp Charge. Even though the company opted to remove the headphone jack, the company still got a pass simply because they deliver great hardware — apart from one thing. © OnePlus While OnePlus smartphones perform like a beast, they always seem to underperform in one department — the camera. Don't get me wrong, the camera is not awful but it's also not up to the mark when compared to other smartphones. We test numerous smartphones throughout the year and even some budget smartphones have managed to take better pictures than the OnePlus 6/6T. I've often heard internet trolls comment on every iPhone or Pixel Review “I can buy a OnePlus 6 and a DSLR for the same price as an iPhone.” While that may be true when considering price as a factor, but if you like to take quality pictures, you will end up doing just that. Unless you're a photography enthusiast, you really don't want to lug around a DSLR camera everywhere with you. Ask me! I do it for reviews and it's not always convenient. In an age where social media plays a vital role in our lives, we really need a good camera smartphone that doesn't cost too much and OnePlus needs to be that phone. I'm not saying that future OnePlus smartphones need to have the best smartphone cameras, I'm just saying it needs to be better. © OnePlus Even with the addition of Nightscape mode on the OnePlus 6T, the camera still takes pictures that are often blurry, noisy and also face focusing issues. In fact, it's a recurring problem that you can find on OnePlus' official forums as well. Having said that, the company has improved the OnePlus6/6T's imagine capabilities over time with regular software updates and incremental upgrades in the hardware department each year, we can expect something outstanding with the OnePlus 7. OnePlus and Oppo share the same supply chain as we've seen OnePlus use the tear-drop design it borrowed from R17 Pro. In fact, there's a good chance that OnePlus may use Oppo's upcoming smartphone camera. As of now, the OnePlus 6/6T uses a dual-camera setup however neither of the lenses is a telephoto lens. Hence, the smartphone uses the 1x/2x zoom feature digitally which often leads to an image with distortion. OnePlus could use Oppo's new Telephoto lens that is expected to be announced at MWC next month. The new camera is said to have a 10x optical zoom which means it is possible to see a similar camera on a future OnePlus smartphone. © Twitter_Venya Geskin OnePlus has already confirmed that its future smartphone will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chipset and is also working on a 5G ready phone. Other rumours suggest that the OnePlus 7 may have a seamless notch-less design and a sliding front-facing camera. In many ways, OnePlus 6T/6 is already the perfect Android smartphone for users. It delivers great performance, charges real quick and has one of the best UIs out of there. It offers a premium design that sometimes outmatches flagship level smartphones. All we need now is a great camera sensor that can make OnePlus 7 the perfect smartphone we've always wanted. It's the only reason preventing me from making it my primary device and if OnePlus manages to deliver a great camera, it will be the ultimate smartphone of 2019.

Captain cool, best husband, a doting father and a great human being are just some basic adjectives and personality attributes that one can use to describe this humble man.

  14. If one has to make a definitive list of hypebeasts in the country, two fashionistas will definitely find their names in there. We are talking about Karan Johar - the king of maximalism, and Diljit Dosanjh - the 'Putt Jatt Da' turned super-hypebeast. If you watched the Koffee episode where Diljit and Badshah spilled their fashion beans, you'd already be aware about how seriously both these people take fashion. However, the fashion feud is more intense than we thought and KJo just admitted that he is extremely heartbroken and troubled by Diljit's fashion shenanigans, that never let Karan win the game for a change. © Instagram/karanjohar Karan said there is something Diljit does that makes sure that he constantly is ahead in the fashion game, and Karan is clueless about to what to do to tackle that. He opened up about his fashion struggles in an episode of Neha Dhupia's show, 'No Filter Neha'. © Instagram/karanjohar © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh Karan said Diljit always beats him when it comes to flaunting a new piece or a new brand. "So, I've a big problem Neha. I am really troubled by Diljit Dosanjh. I mean, like you know the thing is that, I think we both are like crazy shoppers and I think we invariably land up wearing the same clothes because we have the same brands that we love, and plus they are also from the new collection and we are bit of like, I'm also an online shopper, so I go through this process of buying these things and wearing them on occasion. But Diljit buys and wears, immediately and puts up an image," he quoted. © Instagram/karanjohar © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh He also recalled an incident where Diljit left him so heartbroken that he almost was on the verge of singing 'Channa Mereya'. "So we had this faux fur jacket, you must specify that because I don't wear fur jackets... it's from a brand called as GCDS (God Can't Destroy Streetwear) and I was saving it for my big photo opportunity time when I was travelling to Europe and suddenly the night before I take that flight, I see the image uploaded by Diljit Dosanjh... I was like I called Nikita, my stylist and I'm like I'm shattered, I'm broken and I'm totally like Channa Mereya out right now because I'm like I wanted to wear this jacket and that was my FWP. And, I was so upset, it broke my heart," he vented. © Instagram/karanjohar © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh All we can say is that it looks like even KJo's fashion struggles are as dramatically eventful as his movies, sigh.
  15. When you work really hard on something, you're obviously very excited about it. So of course, Sara Ali Khan is very hyped about her upcoming movie 'Simmba' with Ranveer Singh. Turns out all of her excitement comes out in the form of singing and she has been doing a lot of that while promoting the movie. People started noticing that she's always, always singing 'Aankh Marey' even when no is asking her to. Nobody: Sara: pic.twitter.com/b0HJqqASyH — khushi (@bollyalways) December 23, 2018 This is quite inspirational if you think about it. Doing what you love, that too so confidently, even when you suck at it, she's doing it right and we should learn a thing or two from her. Moreover, this new discovery is making people love her even more because it's just too damn relatable. Haha she doesn't even sing well. But that doesn't stop her.

  16. We cue his movies any season or reason and there isn't a dearth of them at all. Yes, I am talking about the undisputed king of Bollywood- Shah Rukh Khan and the best of him, throughout our growing up years and now. Since it's his birthday today, we decided to celebrate it like everyone else is in Bollywood and maybe give away nuggets of his brilliant work, throughout the day. But even other than that we don't really need a reason to write about King Khan, do we? From giving us crazy blockbusters like 'DDLJ' & 'K3G' to standing in his quintessential pose, making all the women go weak in the knees, SRK has literally done it all. No wonder he's the king. He displays everything a king needs to have, doesn't he? © Twitter We love all of SRK's hits. Literally all of them! But there are some movies he's done which haven't really fared too well in the box office but have had a good script and some extremely good acting by the man himself. We'd classify that as some of his most underrated work, which needs to be seen more to be appreciated just as well as his hits. So, here's listing 5 of the most underrated movies SRK has ever been in, which are definitely a must watch. (1) Swades © UTV Motion Pictures I honestly don't know why this one failed in the box office. This is hands down one of SRK's best work. Based on a true life story about an NRI who comes back home in search for his true calling. Shah Rukh nailed the role to the T and gave us a brilliant performance. The music has definitely done great justice too. Remember, 'yun hi challa chal rahi'? Watch trailer here (2) Paheli © Red Chillies Entertainment Paheli is another brilliant scrip that didn't fair too well in the box office. It's the first of its kind fantasy film, done really tastefully, it makes your heart melt with the sheer benevolence. A ghost (played by SRK) falls in love a woman and does everything in his power to be with her. The movie is a remake of a 1973 Hindi movie 'Duvidha' by Mani Kaul. The cast is stellar and the story is beautiful. Definitely watch this when you want to watch a good Shah Rukh Khan movie. Watch trailer here (3) Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na © Shemaroo Video Pvt. Ltd. Come on, we've all loved this movie and watched it umpteen number of times when we were kids, didn't we? SRK's playful, boyish love stuck character definitely stood out and we hated the fact that he was left heartbroken in the end! But ,we still watch the movie any chance we get and definitely sing along to all its songs too! This one's a must watch if you're looking for a fun movie. Watch the trailer here (4) Yes Boss © Venus Records & Tapes Yes Boss was a simplistic drama of the 90s, which was really heart-warming and was liked by everyone who saw it. SRK plays the 'yes man' in the movie who literally does anything his boss asks him. But when his boss asks him to set him up with the girl Rahul (SRK) has the hots for, the movie takes a serious twist. We still love the songs from the movie and of course Shah Rukh and Juhi's adorbale onscreen chemistry. (5) Rab Ne Banaa Di Jodi © Yash Raj Films One of Shah Rukh's commercial endeavours under the Yash Raj Banner, this film was well put together and thought out. At least I enjoyed watching it thoroughly. It also happened to be Anushka Sharma's first ever in Bollywood. The film revolves around Anuhska marrying the introverted and timid SRK, against her will of course and SRK doing anything in his power to make conversations and keep her happy but she isn't happy with him. While enrolling in a dance competition, she's looking out for a dance partner and SRK dons the role of the extroverted and fun loving 'Raj' to win her love over. The only thing got me wondering was the fact that Anushka (Tanni) didn't realise Raj was her husband all through the movie! But it was a good watch regardless. Watch the trailer here So, there we have it. 5 most underrated SRK movies. Has he ever been an inspiration to you in anyway? I remember I had male friends when I was younger, who loved watching his movies and thank him today for teaching them that it's okay for men to show emotions and for them to cry. Kudos SRK, we wish you a 100 more years in Bollywood and in life!
  17. Everyone has, at some point, envied the thick and abundant mop of hair on someone else's head. While getting that naturally is quite the blessing, most people aren't that lucky. So, we are here to let you in on a few hacks that'll let your hair look like it is thick and plentiful. Some of these are pretty simple, and super easy, while some require a little bit effort. Also, remember that these hacks can only make it look like your hair is thicker and more. Actually fixing thinning hair requires more than basic hacks. Let's get started with these hacks for thick hair: 1. Use Body-Boosting Hair Products © Official Instagram/ Ranveer Singh To give your hair volume, an obvious answer is to use volume boosting products. You can use shampoos that work on increasing the body and the volume of your hair. Pair it with a conditioner that is also geared towards doing the same. These products can't stop hair fall or thicken your hair. They just add more body to the hair. 2 Be BFFs With The Blow Dryer © Flickr You can add more body and volume to your hair, thus making it look more full, by blow drying it. Brush the stands outwards from your face, to give the illusion of more volume. Lift up the base as much as you can while doing this. Hold up the roots, to give some extra body to the hair while blow drying. Don't smoothen the roots, just smoothen out the ends. Be careful while styling that you don't flatten the roots. Use a good hair serum to keep the softness, and protect your hair from the heat. You should also keep some heat-protecting products around, if you blow dry your hair often. 3 Get Yourself Some Hair Mousse © Official Instagram/ Shahid Kapoor Before your blowout, take a coin-sized amount of mousse and work it in your hair. Use more if needed, according to your hair length and type. The mousse helps your hair retain the volume created by the blow dryer. It also lets you have more control with your hair, than using just a serum would. Avoid using it at the roots though, and focus more on the mid-length and the ends. 4 Pick Up A Dry Shampoo © Official Instagram/ Vidyut Jamwal Yes, the purpose of dry shampoo is slightly different than what we are recommending it for here. The consistency of dry shampoos makes a great way to add volume to your hair. The powder form is meant to get rid of the greasiness of your hair, without having to use water. But it also settles on the hair strands, and creates a bit of an extra layer on it, thanks to the powder. You can also use it on the roots safely, so this is a super easy way to add some quick volume to your hair. The best way to do it is getting through coverage, so tip your head over, spray over the strands properly, from roots to ends, holding the bottle a few inches away. Afterwards, just brush out your hair or finger comb it. The dry shampoo takes care of the greasiness, getting rid of the flatness. And the lightweight powder shampoo gives you fullness. 5 Cover Up The Gaps © Official Instagram/ Ranveer Singh This one is the most innovative, perhaps even the most ambitious hack. Thin hair means that often there are gaps in the hair roots. So a quick-fix is to cover those gaps up. How do we do it? That's where it gets innovative. You can use anything that matches your hair colour and is safe to use on skin. We are thinking quickly dusting off some of your girlfriend's black or brown eyeshadows should do the trick. There are a few easy root touch-up products as well on the market these days, like this one from L'Oreal: L'Oreal Paris Magic Retouch © Amazon MRP: Rs 298 Buy it here
  18. We've been wanting to talk about this laptop for a while now, as we got our first glimpse of it at Gamescom 2018. This is Alienware's first laptop that offers high-performance graphics and does not look like a tank. It is noticeably thinner than its previous models and offers longer battery life. © Alienware The first thing you will notice are the narrow bezels on the display for an added field of view. The display is 15-inches in size. The display comes in three options i.e. FHD 50Hz IPS; FHD 155Hz TN; 4K 60Hz IPS. As far as the design is concerned, the laptop is very light thanks to its magnesium and copper case, instead of the traditional materials used by Alienware in other models. According to Alienware, the laptop is capable of giving 13 hours of battery life on idle that can be extended with an optional 90 watt-hour battery. As for specifications, the m15 uses the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and is coupled with Nvidia's GTX 1060 and 1070 Max-Q graphics cards. The laptop is also VR ready, if you prefer to consume virtual reality content. For storage, the new laptop can support up to 1TB PCIe M.2 SSD and 1TB hybrid drive. © Alienware Alienware also claims that the new laptop has its proprietary cooling technologic i.e. Cryo-tech 2.0. This prevents the laptop from over-heating when playing heavy-duty games. It has two intake fans and two exhaust fans. The innards also have dedicated and shared heat pipes and copper fin stacks. It weighs around 2.16 kgs and the mSeries keyboard features 1.4 millimetres of travel. The laptop will be available in two colours i.e. Red and silver. As of now, we don't have any details about its India pricing and availability. Nevertheless, we can't wait to get our hands on the Alienware m15 and put it through testing.
  19. This year has been very interesting for Vivo, as they've not only gained market share in focus countries like India, but have also released new products that stand apart. The Vivo NEX brought in a sliding camera setup, which abolished the need for a notch. While this implementation is still questionable and can be judged only over a longer period of time, it undoubtedly is interesting. The next-in-line is the in-display fingerprint scanner. Vivo showed off the X21 in May, the first phone in India to have the technology. Back then, the phone was powered by a midrange chipset, but priced quite high. In fact, it went up directly against the OnePlus 6. Now after a few months, the company has launched the Vivo V11 Pro, which is basically the same as the X21 but priced a lot cheaper. The first thing you'll notice is obviously, the in-display fingerprint scanner. With the V11 Pro, Vivo has managed to bring a new and striking feature to the midrange, and things are even more interesting, because Xiaomi's POCO F1 has been on a roll. In the same segment, we also have the OPPO F9 Pro and the evergreen Nokia 7 Plus. Is Vivo able to make a mark with the Vivo V11 Pro? Is the in-display fingerprint scanner worth the hype? Can the phone stand against the POCO F1? Let's find out. 1. Design & Hardware: © MensXP The first thing you'll notice is the body, which is built of polycarbonate. But the back has a slight gradient that Vivo likes to call the Starry Night. It has an adequate shine to it, but the premium feel that you get from metal is missing. We've all come to expect phones in this range to have a metal build now, but this has been the primary area where Vivo has cut corners. The phone isn't slippery and looks stunning from the front. The screen has a high screen-to-body ratio of 91.27 per cent, the chins are small, and the notch is redesigned. Similar to the OPPO F9 Pro, the V11 Pro has a water-droplet style notch that houses the front camera only. The earpiece is located above the display and the infrared scanner is on the right side. The phone has a 6.4-inch Full View AMOLED display and it's among the best panels we've seen in this range. It is very bright, the colours are slightly oversaturated by default, and the viewing angles are perfect. The saturation and temperature of the display can be changed from the settings menu. © MensXP The bottom of the phone has a speaker grill on the left, the micro-USB charging port in the centre and the audio jack on right. On the back, the Vivo branding is located in the centre while the vertical dual camera setup will always remind you of the iPhone X. The power button is located at a convenient height, you won't have to stretch your fingers. Coming to the in-display fingerprint scanner, it is definitely a lot more improved than the X21's, and the most common question everyone has asked is, "Is it usable in day-to-day usage?" Yes, it is. The scanner is sufficiently fast and accurate. You do need to place your finger a little more firmly, but other than that, there is no difference. The software is well optimised and thought off to make full use of the scanner, even if you lift your phone, the AMOLED display will show you the scanner circle with futuristic animations. I've hardly had to actually use the power button to unlock the phone. © MensXP The phone also comes with Face Unlock support that works in the dark as well, thanks to an infrared sensor. The authentication is fast and rarely fails to recognise me. The SIM tray is located on the left side while the power button and the volume rockers are on the right. Even the case that Vivo has shipped with the phone is of good quality and feels solid in hand. 2. Performance: © MensXP The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor along with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, there are no other memory configurations. The storage can be expanded to 256GB via a microSD card. In a nutshell, the phone is fast and smooth. I've rarely encountered any lags or stutters, but the UI does feel dated. We'll talk more on that in the software section. Games like PUBG were a little disappointing though, even at medium settings it encountered a lot of stutters and felt like the phone is struggling throughout the game. Also, even though a high screen-to-body ratio is good for looks, it becomes a major problem while gaming, you just don't have enough place to hold the phone firmly. © MensXP Except for games, everything else runs smooth. Even when I'm shifting through multiple apps like Outlook, WhatsApp, multiple tabs on Chrome, and Google Drive, the phone would go on without a glitch. The phone is backed by a 3400mAh battery, and it is more than sufficient to get you through one full day of heavy usage. The one thing I loved about the phone is its standby time, it hardly takes up any power even when you have 4G / WiFi connected full time. Thanks to the AMOLED panel, even the display isn't very hungry. The battery supports Vivo's new dual-engine fast charging, I could get it from 5 per cent to 96 per cent within 1 hour 40 minutes. 3. Software: © MensXP While everything about the phone is well above average, Vivo desperately needs to update its FunTouch OS UI. Since the Vivo V5 Plus, I haven't noticed any difference. Obviously, it has been heavily inspired by iOS, and sadly Vivo is stuck at iOS 10 while the world has moved on to iOS 12. The UX feels very old especially when you use gesture navigation. It is outright visible that the company has added the gestures on top of the previous UI, making it cumbersome. The two modules just don't feel well integrated. The animations often feel slow, and the gesture to open recently used apps is terribly slow. I won't be too hard on the software because it is something that can be fixed with an update, and I hope Vivo takes into consideration. Now that I've established that the UI is old, it does bring in a host of added nifty functionality like support for dual-apps and deeper customization. The phone comes with Vivo's version of an email, calendar, and a few other utility apps. The phone also comes with some bloatware like Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram. 4. Camera: © MensXP The V11 Pro has a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor on the back, the same ones we've seen on the X21. The pictures are very detailed and sharp during the daytime and there is hardly a shutter lag. Dynamic range is decent and the portrait mode is spot-on in detecting the depth, it also comes with some added customization options in the camera app. The colour reproduction is very accurate. During macros, the subject is sharp and the background is perfectly creamy. In low-light, the setup performs surprisingly well, but there is a slight shutter lag, but if you have a steady hand, the output is superior. The noise levels are low and currently exposed. © MensXP The front has a 25-megapixel single sensor that is very sharp and detailed. The portrait mode also works perfectly and the detection of hair and headgear is properly processed and it also has a few extra filters like natural light, studio light, and rainbow light. We can also put in a monochrome background. The Camera app is again heavily inspired by Apple but comes in with a tonne more functionality. There is obviously a pro mode available along with Vivo's signature beautification modes, that have a very deep level of customization. You can change your skin tone, as well as the size of your nose. The camera can be also triggered via voice commands or palm gesture. © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP The Final Say © MensXP Overall, I'd recommend this phone to everyone. When compared against the POCO F1, the V11 Pro misses out only on the top of the line performance. The camera is superior, has all the trendy features, and the in-display fingerprint scanner is a good cherry on the top. The POCO F1 is for those who need raw performance on the go, the Vivo V11 Pro is suited for a more casual user base. If you like iOS, you'll feel right at home, along with the added openness of the Android ecosystem.
  20. It's so funny to see new fancy workouts popping up on the internet every day. One would claim extreme fat burning and the other would promise a chiseled core. Let's call these tall claims with short walks. One common thing or as I like to call it, a flaw each of these stupid programs have is the absence of evidence and science. Burn these many calories in these many hours. Put on this much muscle in this time and what not. Look, a lot of things in the fitness industry just don't have precise answers. It all depends. It's all very subjective. But some questions do and their answers will always remain the same. New Fancy Programs Will Never Replace Proven Exercises © Pixabay TRX this, BOSU ball that and ZUMBA, my god. These are just outrageously idiotic additions to a workout that could have been sensible, otherwise. Look, if you want to look good naked, the drill is simple. Reduce body fat and build muscle. To build muscle, you need to lift weight and overtime add more and more weight. Our body is an adaptive being. It adapts to loads. The more comfortable you get with a given load, the lesser the chances of building new muscle tissue. Hence, no muscle built. And best believe that all these circus type workouts won't help you look good naked simply because they don't load your muscle enough. Moreover, half of these workouts are downright illogical. What's the point of trying to flip a 100-kilo tyre when you can't deadlift your own bodyweight? Exactly, no point! They might be fun but well, the results will never be what you wanted in the first place. Stick To The Basics Of Pull, Push, Hinge, Hang And Carry © Thinkstock Our bodies do great when we make them do what they are built to do in the first place. For centuries, humans have used the pulling, pushing, hinging, hanging and carrying movements in daily life. And not to mention, back in the day there were hardly any cases of lifestyle obesity. People were strong and lean, naturally. These same movements were carried over into the gym rooms and in the form of push-ups, pull-ups, rows, loaded carries and deadlifts. People did them and got results because these exercises made sense. Just like to lose fat, you have to eat in a caloric deficit and expend more energy; you have to focus on the proven exercises to build strength and muscle. Don't expect to do acro-yoga and zumba and get jacked! What Are These Exercises? 1) Deadlifting 2) Rowing (different variation) 3) Overhead shoulder pressing 4) Squatting 5) Pull-ups 6) Pushup 7) Farmer's walk
  21. Looking at a well-built physique and thinking that the person is knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition is a wrong assumption. It's common for trainers with the biggest muscles to have the most numbers of clients on the floor. In the same way, people tend to listen to that fit Instagram model more than a person who might be 10 times more knowledgeable just because the Insta model is ripped (or Photoshop-ripped) 365 days a year. And this is wrong on so many levels! © YouTube Now, don't get me wrong here. Want to build bigger arms? Find the guy with the biggest arms in the gym and replicate his every trick, right? Nope, wrong! That's because you would be ignoring numerous factors that come into play here. From genetics, to training age, to nutrition, to exogenous assistance, the list here is endless. This is almost foolish to think that the random advice given by that buff dude in the gym is Holy Grail. © Pixabay It is true that dream physiques are the result of years or sometimes even decades of hard work, dedication, patience and consistency in the gym. But many of these so called 'natties' that you see in gyms or on the covers of fitness magazines are actually very, very gifted when it comes to genetics. Also in almost 99% of the cases, they are on steroids. And being enhanced means that no matter which technique they use, they will make progress and keep growing or keep getting shredded, which of course a natural guy like you won't. Confused? Think about it, tomorrow just because a bodybuilder claims that he developed huge arms by doing 1000 reps and eating frog legs, would you start doing the same? Just because a fit looking person says something and (tries to) sound knowledgeable and technical about fitness and nutrition, does not make it true automatically. In other words, someone who looks good does not necessarily have to be an expert in the field of training and nutrition. On the other hand, someone who is not the most ripped or the buffest dude can know a lot more about the art and science of training. Case in point is that of knowledgeable writers/speakers who often get criticized for not being big enough or ripped enough. All a good coach or trainer needs is to know things about fitness that you don't; stuff that was learned in class, through books, through personal experience, or by innovative genius. That person also needs to be passionate about teaching weight training or fitness and has academic qualifications which shows that the person has put in time and effort in learning the art and science of training and nutrition.

  22. Food plays cupid for two strangers, they start exchanging messages and calls over a tiffin service and romance sparks between the two. Nope, we're not talking about Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur starrer 'The Lunchbox', although this trailer does give us major vibes of the movie. © neufilm We're talking about 'Once Again', a sweet love story between Shefali Shah and Neeraj Kabi, explaining why everyone deserves a second chance in life. If you are a 'Sacred Games' fan then I don't need to introduce Parulkar or Neeraj Kabi or talk about how talented an actor he is, people know that already. And with this trailer he only cemented that fact. And Shefali Shah doesn't need any introduction. © neufilm Shefali Shah, one of the finest actresses in Bollywood, plays a widowed businesswoman who runs a tiffin service. Neeraj Kabi plays a renowned actor who also happens to be one of her clients. The two soon start bonding over food and exchange notes with tiffins. However, the society does not accept their relationship and they soon find themselves surrounded by ridiculous comments and judgemental looks of people. How the two try to overcome these obstacles weaves the rest of the plot. Written by Kanwal Sethi, 'Once Again' also stars Rasika Duggal and Bidita Bag.
  23. The world thought Marvel was crazy to release 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' just a few months after 'Avengers: Infinity War.' The latter has earned more than $2 billion at the box office. It's safe to say that anyone who has even a mild interest in comic book movies has watched it. So, why would Marvel dare to release another comic book movie so soon? Stupid move, right? Wrong! Remember, when the trailer for 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' dropped just a few weeks into 'Avengers: Infinity War' releasing? It had a catchy song and was fun. Just what we needed after the mind-bender that was the ending of Infinity War. But, let's be honest, no one cared about it. The only Marvel movie we're interested in watching now is 'Avengers 4', right? Wrong! The biggest mistake you could make is choosing to skip 'Ant-Man & The Wasp.' It's a Marvel movie. You absolutely must watch it. Not a single Marvel movie since 'Iron Man (2008)' has let us down. So, why not give them a chance? They deserve one, right? Well, yeah! © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures But we digress, let's get back to 'Ant-Man & The Wasp.' This movie deserves much more praise than it's going to end up getting. Why? It's a bloody brilliant movie. But, we're all just suffering from a superhero hangover right now. So, here's my attempt at trying to convince you to watch the movie. If you are already convinced and just want to know what the ending was all about, skip to the end. We talk about it in detail. (Let this song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zsox4q5B8ps) play in the background while you read through the rest of it. Trust us, it will only make things better.) Comedy With Paul Rudd as the lead, the end result is bound to be hilarious. One thing Marvel has become really good at is making us laugh without letting us think we're watching a comedy where there are no stakes. 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' will have you laughing out loud (literally) on multiple occasions. But, it will not once take it to the point where you feel like it's unbelievable. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Not everyone laughs in the face of adversity. Why would you crack a joke if your life was on the line? Unlike many other movies who have tried it (looking at you DC) Marvel gets it right. They even managed to make Michael Douglas' most serious stare hilarious. That takes tact! Visuals If we were to name two Marvel franchises that stood out in terms of visuals alone, I'd choose Thor and Dr. Strange. Yeah, Dr. Strange is not yet a franchise and we only got those sweet-sweet visuals in the third Thor movie, but who would have thought 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' would be a visual masterpiece? © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Actually, when you think about it, we did get a glimpse of just how visually stunning the Ant-Man franchise could be in the first movie. We did spend a few seconds in the quantum realm in that one. This movie takes it up a notch. In fact, it takes it up multiple notches. Damn it, we'll say it, 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' has the best visuals we've seen in a movie in the last 10 years. Maybe more. Michelle Pfeiffer What can we say about Michelle Pfeiffer. She stole our heart as Catwoman in 'Batman Returns' and we never got it back. The woman is 60-years-old right now and still looks as beautiful as ever. She's so beautiful that it makes me break away from third person for a couple of seconds just to say that I'd sell one of my kidneys just to be in the same room as her. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures But, Marvel doesn't cast actors to be eye-candy. Not when they can act most of their co-stars under the table. We bet they have big plans for Pfeiffer leading up to 'Avengers 4'. She is going to be in the finale. Everyone already knows that. Good we got to spend a little time with her first. Paul Rudd Remember when Paul Rudd was best known for being Phoebe's boyfriend/husband on 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S.?' Those days are over. Paul Rudd is and forever will be known as Ant-Man from now on. Sorry, Hank. If the first movie was any indication of what a terrific choice Rudd was as the titular character, this movie just helps cement that thought. If you thought Rudd wasn't talented enough to be a Hollywood A-lister, just watch 'Ant-Man & The Wasp.' © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures As much as we'd love this to be an ode to Paul Rudd, we have a lot left to cover so we'll keep it plain and simple. Paul Rudd is great. Go watch every single movie he is in! Evangeline Lilly She's not 'Lost' anymore. That's for sure. In a universe where Black Widow is probably the best non-powered, human, female fighter, Hope Van Dyne could give her a pretty decent fight. Give her the suit and she would be unstoppable. Well, not unstoppable but pretty damn close. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures The thing about Lilly is, she's so damn pretty you don't really care what else she's doing. But, we love how Marvel have moved away from objectifying women in any way, shape or form. You won't have to go too far back to imagine a world where Ant-Man would wear fully covered bodysuit and the Wasp would wear a skimpy two piece. We're glad modern day storytelling has faith in the ability of their characters to sell movie tickets instead of relying on what was considered, for decades, to be the perfect formula. Kudos Marvel and kudos Evangeline. You go girl! Michael Douglas Michael Douglas was considered the bankable Hollywood star back in the 70s or 80s or that time when he was young. As much as he would love to relive those glory days and as much as modern CGI gives him a chance to digitally de-age, he needs to remember that he's not the star attraction anymore. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Unfortunately, when you're that damn good, it's hard not to steal every single scene you're in. There are times when we're sure he isn't even trying and still out acts everyone. Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer on-screen at the same time as husband and wife in 2018. No one would have believed you 20 years ago. Not because there's animosity between them, it's just that no production company has managed to cast them together in the past. Then again, Marvel loves doing the impossible. Back to first person for a few seconds. Going to let out a small, really tiny, subatomic spoiler here. If you're one of those who think something so small could ever be a spoiler or don't want to risk it, just skip to the next point. Ready? Okay, there was a point in the movie when the person I was watching it with was worried that Michael Douglas was going to die. You know what I said to her? You can't get Michael Douglas for your movie and then kill him. Michael Douglas doesn't die. Goes without saying I was, right. Well, kinda. *wink wink* Michael Pena One day, someone is going to write a book on the art of storytelling. That book is then going to be turned into a movie. That movie is going to go on and win an Oscar. You know who the book is going to be based on? Michael Pena. Why? The man is a genius. We got a taste of just how 'sublime' he can be in 'Ant-Man' and with 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' we get another look at the best storyteller on the planet. Yeah, he is the best storyteller on the planet!!! © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Whenever he's on screen, you'll have a smile on your face. This movie was Pena doing what he does best. Killing it with his comedic timing. Marvel could have cast just about anyone else in the world as Luis and they would have been a forgettable side character (T.J. Miller tries hard in 'Deadpool' but is just not good enough). But here, Luis is one of the stars of the show. Everyone in the world should tell stories the way Luis does. Every single person! Other supporting characters In a film with the above-mentioned big names gracing the cover, the odds of being a forgettable actor no one will think of twice are very high. But, Marvel doesn't just get actors who are okay being mediocre. They hire the best. Even if it's for 2 minutes of screen time. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Everyone in the movie from Laurence Fishburne to Randall Park put in a spectacular performance. Even the 10-year-old Abby Ryder Fortson showed us just how far child actors have come in a couple of decades. Bravo. Storytelling Remember how Marvel used 'Thor: Ragnarok' to close the plothole with the multiple Infinity Gauntlets? They did it again. Finally, a studio that watches its own movies and learns from its mistakes. Dare we call them mistakes. There are a few serious questions that we had on our minds at the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War' and in this movie Marvel gave us answers to every single one of them. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Everyone thought it was a really stupid decision to have 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' release after 'Avengers: Infinity War' but as you walk out of the movie hall you will realise that they were right. This is a movie that must be watched after Infinity War. It wouldn't have been the same otherwise. Yet again, Marvel proves that no matter how much we question their actions, they will prove us wrong at the end of the day. The Ending (Spoilers Ahead) All first-person for this one! I want to talk to you one-on-one here! AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH there's so much I want to say. This movie has made me reevaluate everything I've done in my life till this point. I went in with absolutely no expectations. The movie turned out to be a fun superhero movie. The kinds that Marvel is known for. I had a good laugh throughout. The actor's performances were spot on. It was a solid 8 on 10. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures The movie finished. The credits started rolling. The mid and end credit scenes in the last few movies have been underwhelming at best so there was no reason to expect anything else from this one. The movie had been fun. I was happy, you were happy, everyone was happy. The good guys won. The bad guys lost. Yaay! Then, in a split second, Marvel reminded us that this was a universe where Thanos existed. If the snap of his fingers hurt us in the Infinity War, in 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' it killed us. You probably didn't even realise what happened for the first few seconds. Then it hit you like a 10 ton truck. Marvel is done with happy endings. We're in the real world now and in the real world, you lose people in a heartbeat (literally). © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Who would have thought Marvel would pull such a gutsy move? Hope, Hank and Janet Van Dyne, disintegrate when Thanos snaps his fingers and Ant-Man is stuck in the Quantum Realm with no way of coming back. Damnit! Can Avengers 4 come already? I am never going to get invested in a Marvel series ever again in my life (haha, what a lie). It's just too much excitement and anticipation. But then again, that's just the mark of a brilliant storyteller. Kevin Feige, you are indeed a LEGEND!
  24. Another day, another new pop-culture reference on Mumbai Police's Twitter account. I think we have already established that Mumbai Police is the coolest Police Department, based solely on their hilarious yet informative social media accounts. And, yes, the person behind the tweets and memes needs a hefty raise; we say this every time because it's important to appreciate pure memeing talent, it's that rare. From a '13 Reasons Why' reference to putting their own twist to the viral sensation chai peelo auntie, they've always proved they keep up with the trends religiously. But, sometimes, you also get by with a little help from some classics. It's not the first time we've seen a 'Friends' reference on the Mumbai Police's Twitter account and it won't be the last – that's the beauty of taking something classic – but it's still a great way to engage with people and everyone should see it. Everyone knows about the Mumbai rains and how severe it has become, so the police obviously wanted to reassure the people that they're on top of the situation and the best way to do it, is by using lines from one of the most iconic theme songs of all time. Right here. For you Mumbai. Always. #MumbaiFirstpic.twitter.com/PhnpDc6mRJ — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) July 11, 2018 As expected, people loved it. I mean, who wouldn't love hilarious and totally apt pop-culture references? pic.twitter.com/GQFsOMhesx — Love for All; Hatred for RSS/BJP (@BJPo4India) July 11, 2018 Good comparison. @MumbaiPolice you are like Joey - kind, funny, and always ask everyone "How you doin?" — Just Your Regular Guy (@chaitanyatheman) July 11, 2018 And, then a whole bunch of people just thanking police for their service.
