  1. While India is busy praising Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur, Jhulan Goswami, Poonam Raut, etc, Piers Morgan, British television personality and journalist, decided to start a war with Indian and British Twitter users, especially with Virender Sehwag, and all hell broke loose! The rant on Twitter between former India opener Virender Sehwag and British journalist Piers Morgan has been on for quite a while, and well followed too. It started off when Morgan corrected Sehwag's grammar on his tweet about the India Vs England Kabaddi match. He has always had a bad habit of insulting India's performance at sporting events. First commenting on India's VICTORIES at the Olympics, then this nonsense with the women's Cricket team. Morgan jumped on the opportunity to take a dig at Sehwag after India lost the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 final to England at Lord's on Sunday. “You OK, buddy @virendersehwag?” Morgan tweeted mentioning Sehwag on Twitter. You OK, buddy @virendersehwag? #WWC2017final 😂😂😂 — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) 23 July 2017 To which the cricketer replied Me and all of India prouder even in this loss than you can ever be mate.We fought well &will only get better & stronger. Enjoy for a change! https://t.co/Dv1gn2jpWn — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) 23 July 2017 It's not the first time Morgan has tried to engage Sehwag. He bet 1 million dollars to charity on England winning an ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold medal? “Hi @virendersehwag, I bet you 1 million rupees to charity that England wins a ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold. Accept?” he tweeted. And, a ton of Indians essentially had enough and decided to shut him up. They continue to wait for eng men to win the World Cup,glad the women won them the cup,our #WomenInBlue make us swell with pride in win/loss pic.twitter.com/NXTxjZaIQG — Monica Jasuja (@jasuja) 23 July 2017 Yahi mai bhi keh gya tha @imVkohli sir thodi der pehle. 😃 pic.twitter.com/AY1KL1E97u — ROHIT BANSAL (@banlib23) 23 July 2017 @piersmorgan Mr. Morgan you should be worried about England men's team..Stop ur Sarcastic tweets..Keep some respect 😠 — Vinod J (@vinnutony) 23 July 2017
  2. What's a football fan's dream come true? Let us rephrase the question, what's a man's dream come true? Watching women grab and tackle balls... Ahem! watching NAKED women grab and tackle balls. Well, partially naked, in barely-there lingerie--something that will make more than just your hair stand at its end. That's what the Legends Football League, formerly known as Lingerie Football League, is all about. The sport has some extremely fit and saucy women displaying their physical prowess through some serious gridiron football action in lingerie that qualifies as uniform. If you haven't been following the league and "football in lingerie" has suddenly sparked your interest in the game, check out the hot players train and get dirty on the field during game season, you will be left high and dry, after all football is usually a rather exciting experience. We did a bit of homework to heighten the excitement and shortlisted six of the hottest LFL players who are comfortable flaunting their bodies on and off of the field. Before you get hooked on to the league, check these players out. 1. Quincy Hewitt Team: Chicago Bliss Position: Offensive Lineman © Instagram If her mad display of powerful rushing skills on the field from the previous seasons haven't yet left your mouth hanging, her shredded body definitely will. © Instagram The Australian hottie not only trains like a mother...of all Gods, she is super active on Instagram, often posting sultry pictures of herself in the skimpiest of clothing (or none), leaving only little to the imagination. 2. Danielle Dicaterino Team: Atlanta Steam Position: Guard/ Defensive End © Instagram Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! With Danielle Dicaterino you don't know what to look at first, her consistent defense tactics, her angelic face or her body so thick that it left us licking our lips! © Instagram We are sure her field and fitness game can help you blow off some steam. 3. Chasity Morales Team: Austin Acoustic Position: Wide Receiver © Instagram Aside from being a gorgeous brunette and a gloriously fit swim suit model, who can give Victoria's Secret models a run for their money, Chasity Morales knows how to tackle her way through the field. © Instagram Her feisty game closely mirrors her super slick frame, tight and promising. 4. Cynthia Schmidt Team: Los Angelos Temptation Position: Wide Receiver © Instagram This blond beauty is like a warrior on the field, her touchdowns are as sublime as her sculpted behind! © Instagram If you think that's too hard to believe check out her stats; by that we are obviously referring to the stats of her mean offense skills as well as that of her shapely physique. 5. Jayne Caldwell Team: Chicago Bliss Position: Quarter Back © Instagram Touchdown queen, Caldwell is a force to reckon with, especially when she's in the middle of a game in an itty-bitty thong, manoeuvring the ball like a beast. © Instagram Her body proportions, though, can leave quite a few fumbling...with words to describe her striking beauooty. 6. Adrian Purnell Team: Atlanta Steam Postion: Tight End Strong Safety © Instagram Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned and Purnell here packs a punch, literally; she's known to knock the daylights out of her opponent with her offensive game and sometimes just pure anger; you definitely want to get in on her tight end. © Instagram In her spare time, she knocks out a very enthusiastic viewer base with rather ravishing pictures of her top notch figure on social media.
  3. Udupi Ramachandra Rao, former chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and celebrated space scientist, breathed his last in the wee hours on Monday after prolonged illness, at his residence in Bengaluru. He was 85. Be it Indian or the international space scenario, Rao needs no introduction. He is the brain behind India's first satellite, Aryabhata; has spearheaded several ISRO projects including the Mars Orbiter Mission and took it to the heights where it proudly stands today. Rao's absence will definitely leave a huge void in the Indian space scenario. © Twitter The Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan awardee, Rao served as the chairman of ISRO for 10 years between 1984 and 1994. In his career span, Rao has won several accolades and international and national awards for his contribution. Rao was born in Adamaru in Karnataka and started his career as a cosmic ray scientist and worked under the guidance of Dr. Vikram Sarabhai. © wikimedia He was the first one to identify the continuous nature of solar wind and the effect it had on geomagnetism, using Mariner 2 observations. In fact, in 2013, he became the first Indian to be inducted into the ‘Satellite Hall Of Fame' in Washington. Under the leadership of U.R. Rao, India saw acceleration in the development of the rocket technology, leading to the successful launch of ASLV rocket in the year 1992. In fact, Rao was also behind the successful launch of INSAT satellites and the development of the geostationary launch vehicle GSLV. In 1995 he helped launch an 850 kg satellite into the polar orbit. © wikimedia He was serving as the Chairman of the Governing Council of the Physical research Laboratory, Ahmedabad and the chancellor of the Indian Institute of Science and Technology (IIST) at Thiruvananthapuram. He has previously worked as a faculty member at MIT and even published over 350 technical and scientific papers on interplanetary physics, satellite and rocket technology and cosmic rays among others. Rao's never ending list of achievements and awards speak for his work and his remarkable contribution that took the Indian space scenario to such great heights. He is survived by his wife and daughter. Prime Minister Narendra Modi too mourned the demise of Rao. Saddened by demise of renowned scientist, Professor UR Rao. His remarkable contribution to India's space programme will never be forgotten. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 24 July 2017
  4. On one hand where some people are fighting against each other in the name of religion and fueling the Hindu-Muslim conflict, Alam Ara is setting an example that the whole nation needs to learn from and at the same time feel ashamed of as well. For the past 17 years, this woman from Varanasi has been carving Shiv Lingams for a living and believes that there are no Hindus or Muslims in the country, everyone is a Hindustani. She believes that this divide is a waste of time and we don't think anyone could have said it as easily as her. “Making Shiv Lingams is a god-gifted art and we make it with love,” Ara told ANI. UP: Varanasi's Alam Ara making Shiva Lingam for the last 17 years to earn a living, says "this is god-gifted art, we make it with love" pic.twitter.com/bIJZvvWGoe — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) 22 July 2017 Ara further said that this is her source of income; when it comes to art there are no Hindus or Muslims. We only hope that more people realize that art knows no religious boundaries and religion should never come in the way of work or love for something. Ye humari rozi hai...Hindu-Muslim se kuch nahi hota hai. Hum Hindustani hain: Varanasi's Alam Ara on making Shiva Lingam for 17 years pic.twitter.com/aASkM4nkW3 — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) 22 July 2017 “Hindu-Muslim se kuch nahi hota hai. Hum Hindustani hain,” she told ANI and we couldn't agree any less with her. While the feeling of solidarity is losing its sheen with each passing day, it's people like Alam Ara who help us restore our faith in unity.
  5. It's finally happening! ‘Wonder Woman' is getting a sequel and our excitement now knows no boundaries! Whenever one spoke about superheroes, we primarily thought of Batman, Superman, Thor, Spiderman, Ironman, Captain America, Hulk and many more. Well they all are superheroes but what's missing in this list? A woman. But, this summer that trend changed when Warner Bros. brought to life DC Comic's much loved and cherished character, Wonder Woman. © Warner Bros. The fact that we are still swooning over Gal Gadot's fierce avatar, killer looks, deadlier superpowers and impeccable acting skills is proof enough that she did an amazing job as Wonder Woman, after Lynda Carter, whose name goes hand in hand with the superhero. If you are wondering whether Gal Gadot will come back in this movie? Hell yeah! She will be in the sequel and slaying and beating the sh*t out of people, like she has been doing. © Warner Bros. Within a few weeks of its release, ‘Wonder Woman' has already become the third biggest movie of all time by Warner Bros., ‘The Dark Knight' and ‘The Dark Knight Rises' are the two biggest hits by them. The announcement of Wonder Woman 2 was made at San Diego Comic-Con and it's definitely a big deal for the fans across the world. However, it still concerns us how well the sequel will build up, after the fantastic response of the first film. After the sequel was confirmed, there was no way we could have kept calm. As expected, people couldn't hold on to their excitement and took to Twitter to share the news. WONDER WOMAN 2 IS HAPPENING I'M SO HAPPY #WonderWoman pic.twitter.com/KPqz2noN1d — Nav (@LuxyNav) 22 July 2017 > WONDER WOMAN 2 > SUICIDE SQUAD 2 . . . pic.twitter.com/Z5FR1t88qi — Mireia (@mirfitvi) 22 July 2017 Wonder Woman 2!! Yes it was already a given, but I'm still elated!! ✌🏽️🙌🏽🙅🏽👊🏽👍🏽 — lily (@GoSpurs90) 22 July 2017 Having said that, apart from Gal Gadot, if there was anyone who left an equally deep impact on the fans; it was Director Patty Jenkins, who showed the world who the real wonder woman is. The duo of Jenkins and Gadot has managed to wreak havoc on the success of other films and we aren't complaining. They deserve all the credit for doing justice with the character. However, the announcement did not exactly reveal whether Jenkins will return to the director's chair. But, the fans are excited anyway and Jenkins to be back in the sequel as well. Wonder Woman 2 💪🏻👍🏻❤️💃🏻 #daymade. Just waiting on them to announce Patty Jenkins as it's director 🙏🏻 #girlpower #notdoneyet https://t.co/1anXWXIjmZ — Trisha Held (@unalocachica) 22 July 2017 Patty Jenkins isn't yet Wonder Woman 2 director. That post BETTER NOT be taken by a man! @WomenNMedia @AWD_Directors @TheDirectorList — Geetha Stachowiak (@scifinutjob) 22 July 2017 Source: CNET
  6. We all know how much of a dancer Salman Khan is. No matter whether you love his dancing style or not, the man invents steps that each one of us can easily use on the dancing floor. His dancing steps still create a buzz, from his signature step in 'Dabangg' to Sajan Radio in 'Tubelight', his moves become the talk of the tinsel town. But not everytime Bhaijaan can get away with dancing in his style. It has been reported that Salman Khan is actually becoming very serious about his dance moves. And in order to get it right, he has hired a group of dancers to teach him hip-hop. This is exactly what he has been doing since the last 20 days. Wondering why? Well, it is all for choreographer-director Remo D'Souza's next, who is known for his dance. Salman will start shooting for the film from this October and will be seen romancing Jacqueline Fernandez. (c) Giphy As per reports, the name of the film is ‘Dancing Dad', where Salman will play a role of an aging dad and will play the father of a nine-year-old. Talking about the film, Remo said, “He is already training for this movie. I can't tell you the dance form as it's the main element in the film.” He also added that the film would be to dance, what 'Dangal' is to sports. Salman will start shooting for this film as soon as he wraps up 'Tiger Zinda Hai', which is scheduled to hit the theatres this December.
  7. The seventh season of the much-awaited and fought-after (you aren't a true fan if you didn't fight over the characters and story plot) series, 'Game of Thrones', premiered recently and since then people have officially lost their chill. The first episode has already been viewed millions of times and has divided the world into two parts – first who watched it before everyone and spoil the episode for others and second who beat the sh*t out of those who give away spoilers. © HBO Within a few days of its release, this season has already done much more than just fuel suspense around the characters. It gave people a room to troll Ed Sheeran for his cameo, gave the fan theorists fodder for their next groundbreaking discovery and most importantly, it has given some smartasses on the internet to go ahead and do what they are best at – pirating it. Thanks to the advent of internet, nothing seems like too big a deal these days and we guess these folks abide by this, so they went ahead and pirated the premiere episode 90 f**king million times. © HBO According to a report published in Torrent Freak, the piracy monitoring firm MUSO has suggested that the season premiere has been pirated 90 million times in just three days and the sources were majorly the unauthorized streaming services with torrent contributing a little bit to it. It's not like this show or any other show's piracy numbers have not touched millions earlier, but this number and that too within a few days is huge. We won't be surprised if Hollywood goes into a state of shock after reading the numbers. © HBO MUSO even notes that most pirated traffic comes from the United States (15 million approx), while countries like United Kingdom (6.2 million approx), Germany (4.8 million approx) and India (4.3 million approx) filled up the second, third and fourth spots in the list of piracy. We hope any college professor isn't reading this, else they'll know how the students are putting the hostel and college WiFi to good use.
  8. Shah Rukh Khan is just not the king of our hearts but he is loved globally as well. The man has a massive fan-following around the world. Just recently SRK shared a photo and people are going crazy over it. He recently bumped into EDM DJ Diplo and people are already assuming some great things. King Khan took to Twitter and shared the picture with all his fans and captioned it “Walked into the video @diplo is making for Phurrr! Got a starring role in it & his Decent jacket. Wes u r dope! Thx” After reading the caption, are you thinking exactly what we are? Well, it looks like SRK might soon be seen in a music video by Diplo and we are just excited with just the thought of it. Walked into the video @diplo is making for Phurrr! Got a starring role in it & his Decent jacket. Wes u r dope! Thx pic.twitter.com/1DLxfcAP3n — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) July 22, 2017 Currently, SRK is in Los Angeles with his family for Aryan's surgery. In fact, before that, he also visited Universal Studios and shared pictures of him and AbRam having a great time together. On the work front, SRK is gearing up for the release of his film 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' also starring Anushka Sharma, where SRK will be seen playing Harry, a Punjabi munda, and Anushka will play a Gujarati character named Sejal. The trailer of the film was released this Friday and people have loved it. The film is set to release on 4th August.
  9. Man, we just can't catch a break, can we? After the madness that was the Justice League trailer, the reveal of the Infinity War footage and just a ton of crazy shit, Marvel have just gone and stomped everyone's sand castles down into the dirt and slapped us with the latest ‘Thor: Ragnarok' trailer. And it looks good, it looks damn good. I mean, just look at the bloody poster! Y'all know the drill. Hela, played by a scene stealing Cate Blanchett, is pissed off and lays waste to Asgard, flinging the God of Thunder all across the galaxy (pun intended) and smashing Mjolnir. Thor lands on a backwater planet where he is kidnapped and forced to fight in a gladiatorial arena. The Hulk shows up and proceeds to kick the Thunder God's ass! And it's freaking glorious. (c) Marvel Studios The footage looks very cool with that awesome synthwave beat pulsating in the background. Marvel, my heart and soul are ready! I'm no Marvel fanboy, always been a DC stable, until Geoff Johns destroyed the company, but their trailers always manage to appeal to the nerd in me. (c) Marvel Studios (c) Marvel Studios Oh, did I mention Loki? Yeah, he's back. The fan favourite villain is back with that sly smirk and is ready to kick some serious ass alongside his brother. (c) Marvel Studios And what can I say about the Hulk? Wow, If Marvel aren't getting the rights back for Universal for a solo Hulk film, I'd just rather they do a whole bunch of Hulk team up movies. For sure! That final shot of the Hulk leaping into a fight with Surtur, the fire demon, is the bloody money shot. (c) Marvel Studios (c) Marvel Studios The action is kinetic and the colours pop out of the screen. If there is one thing we know about Marvel is that they know how to get your blood flowing with a damn good fight scene. We can't wait for November. Check out the insane trailer below.
  10. Vikas Khanna is not just the most famous chef in the country, but is also responsible for putting India on the map in the culinary world. Along with being an incredible chef and a three-time Michelin Star awardee, he is also a restaurateur, an author, and a proud son. Last week he won hearts by taking his mother as his date to the IIFA Awards, where he was honoured with the Stardust Global Icon 2017 Award. His journey of becoming one the best chefs in the country is nothing less than inspiring. And it all comes from his even more inspiring mother, Bindu Khanna. She was the one motivating his to always dream big and his post about her today proves just that. My Mom had dreamt of becoming a pilot with the support of her beloved father. But in 1964, there was a ban on women to fly planes in Punjab. Since then it was her dream to fly. Today, after 53 years she flew a plane and the instructors were spellbound. #ProudSon&Daughter A post shared by Vikas Khanna (@vikaskhannagroup) on Jul 21, 2017 at 1:38pm PDT He wrote on his social media accounts, “My Mom Bindu Khanna, had dreamt of becoming a pilot when she was young; with the support of her beloved father. But in 1964, there was a ban on women to fly planes in Punjab. Since then it was her dream to fly. Today, after 53 years she flew a plane and the instructors were spellbound.” Even if it took 53 years, she finally fulfilled her dream. This should be an inspiration to all of us that nothing is out of our reach. Age is literally just a number! He's such a dutiful son and all his pictures with his mother are so adorable! After a crazy hectic week when Mom puts mustard oil in your hair, you know that everything is going to be okay in the World. #childhoodmemories A post shared by Vikas Khanna (@vikaskhannagroup) on Jul 1, 2017 at 10:15pm PDT Whenever I visit home in Amritsar, I always have a lot of family, neighbors, friends and strangers. I love it all. The excitement, chaos, hugs, heartwarming notes…..everything. But 2 years ago, we made a plan. Mom and me would set our alarm clocks 1 hour earlier for just simple OUR time. She would make tea, parle-g biscuits and both of us would be in the kitchen. I would hear the updates on relatives and their kids or her favorite soap opera story. I just listen and smile. Sometimes she would get distracted and start sending “good morning” messages on Whatsapp groups to everyone. It's her daily routine and she follows it like a ritual like millions of Indian mothers. We just loveeee it. Especially when I am sitting next to her and she sends me the flower picture or a scenery picture with “Good Morning” on it. Somehow it makes my morning, GOOD! I would start my day with a smile. I sometimes travel 7,000 miles just for that sacred 1 hour and parle-g biscuits. #MyFirstKitchen A post shared by Vikas Khanna (@vikaskhannagroup) on Jul 1, 2017 at 6:27am PDT
  11. “Ladies and gentlemen,” Robert Bourke, Baron of Connemara, started. “I wish to say that it has been for a long time, the wish of my colleagues and myself to see a free public library established in Madras; we have recognised it for a long time as one of the most urgent wants of the educated people of this Presidency Town.” The Governor of Madras from 1886 to 1902, Lord Connemara, as he was called, was a barrister at law and a Conservative party MP before coming to Madras as Governor. Aside from being credited with establishing the East Coast Railway Line connecting Chennai to Kolkata, Lord Connemara was instrumental in one other very important aspect, to the people of Madras, now known as Chennai. He is said to have founded one of the most important literary structures in the history of the city which would go on to remain just as iconic even today. Lord Connemara laid the foundation stone for what is today, known as the Connemara Public Library. TripAdvisor “In all populous places a free public library is a very great boon, and I am quite sure that where a great number of students and educated natives of India have not got the means of providing themselves with the books that one needed for their study, in their business, a want of this kind is very deeply felt. I trust that this want will be supplied by the free public library of the building of which I am now going to lay the foundation stone,” he said in his address on the founding day of the structure, 22nd March 1890. Instagram Today, the same structure stands tall and majestic in the heart of the city that continues to attract tourists, intellects and readers, alike who flock there to quench their thirst for knowledge. It is one of the four National Depository Libraries in the country which receives a copy of all books, newspapers and periodicals published in India. Established in 1896 the library is a repository of centuries-old publications, wherein lie some of the most respected works and collections in the country. It also serves as a depository library for the UN. But, there's so much more to the Connemara Public Library which has gone on to become an inherent part of Chennai's cultural complex that attracts visitors. Today, the library is an expansive complex that houses buildings that reflect architectural unity in style and structure, even while demonstrating the various stages of Indo-Saracenic development, from Gothic-Byzantine to Rajput Mughal and Southern Hindu Deccani. Instagram The structure that caters to the needs of all kinds of book lovers was originally designed by H. Irvin, the then consulting Architect to the Government of Madras. The flooring of the library has been done with marble slabs brought from Krishna District (Andhra Pradesh) through the Buckingham canal, in boats and the book racks have been carved out of the costliest teak wood at the time. Back in the day, the cost of the construction cost the management a whopping amount of Rs.5,75,000 which was steep for its time. In 1973, the then government added yet another building to the library to house its overflowing collection of books. Holidify But, aside from being an art and architectural heritage monument of the city, the library is also home to over a lakh rare books and periodicals that are not easily found anywhere in the world; including original works by Plato, D. Hieronymi Strido, an original copy of the Bible and various other such manuscripts. In his inaugural address, Lord Connemara went on to say, about the structure that was going to become an architectural and literary landmark in the history of the country, “I hope, therefore, that in this library those books will be found and also books of various kinds which shall enable them to study in their higher branches of literature and science. But beyond all this, I hope that there will be a free public library and that young man and old men, possibly ladies, may come here and enjoy the pleasure of literature and reading for its own sake”. Instagram And so it continues to be… The Connemara Public Library in Chennai is open, every day of the week, from 9 AM to 7:30 PM and on Sundays, from 9:30 AM to 6 PM, with memberships opened to all city residents from the age 17 and above for an annual fee of INR 50, only.
  12. The battle in Syria has already lasted 6 years with hundreds of thousands of lives lost. Over 11 million Syrians are on the run. Cities are completely destroyed. Aleppo is the largest city of Syria and the economic heart of the country. The bitter battle ended in 2016, with a city completely destroyed and a society torn apart by the war. The violence was permanently broadcasted on television and in social media. ©Power of Art House On July 19th—the day that commemorates the fighting that began in Aleppo back in 2012—a totally destroyed miniature city appeared at the Museum Square in Amsterdam. The interactive pop-up installation titled ‘Living Aleppo' that covered an area of about 20m2, is a creative intervention of Dutch artist Saskia Stolz, who is also the founder of Power of Art House, an artistic think tank and creative collective of designers, socio-cultural entrepreneurs, producers and other creative thinkers, that commits creative interventions and campaigns to bring socio-cultural themes into the spotlight. The organisation has been known to use (street) art as a weapon of choice in demobilising complex and politicised issues in order to make them accessible to a wider audience, with an arty-wink. ©Power of Art House In a unique way, the installation has presented daily life in Aleppo, before and during the war. The stories of dozens of people with diverse backgrounds are told about living in Aleppo during the bombings and surviving the violence. From different perspectives, the installation is showing and educating onlookers and visitors of what life has been like in this city. The stories pop up like jewels within a ruin. ©Power of Art House The idea behind the art installation, as Power of Art House explains, comes out of the desire to present an intriguing image of real life in Aleppo—how everyday life continues in a city/area of war; but is also inseparably connected with fear and distrust. The installation immediately raises the question: ‘How does one rebuild a devastated city; and not just the buildings made of concrete, but also the trust made out of bonds of humanity? Spatial objects of the architect and urban designer, Bengin Dawod demonstrate and visualize—in a provocative manner—his vision on the reconstruction of Aleppo, as a starting point for a discussion about the reconstruction of this ruined city. ©Power of Art House These war images depict our collective view on the world and investigate the question: What do we really know about the Syrian culture? Are we capable of looking beyond the ‘refugee' or ‘terrorist' label? The organisation spoke to numerous people about the Syrians who responded with statements, like “Men in white dresses on camels” or “Poor bastards, only here to earn money”. With Living Aleppo, the art organisation wants to present a realistic view of the people in Aleppo and the implications of the war for this community. The Aleppo installation depicts the city as full of contradictions where hope and despair, love and hate, trust and distrust, faith and disbelief, beauty and destruction coincide together. And, really, that's what the city really is all about. Aleppo is a tolerant and progressive society on the one hand, and a society captured by fear and oppression on the other. ©Power of Art House The installation is largely made of construction waste and built in different layers. Whereas at first glance, it is a huge pile of waste, the Aleppo stories gradually emerge. “Aleppo is much more than a devastated city. Lives were not only been created but also destroyed here. Families were founded here but also torn apart. Studies, careers and ambitions started here or ended here. We have not made anything more beautiful, but also not more dramatic.” Stolz says of the installation. ©Power of Art House In Living Aleppo, you experience the stories collected, through images, sounds and scents. A Palestinian aid worker tells about his life under the Assed regime, an Arab student tells about how students do their exams only one week after a bombing, a Christian stewardess tells about the rights of women in Syria, a Kurdish activist tells about his time in jail/prison. These stories provide answers for questions like; how do you live under/cope with the constant pressure of snipers? How do you proceed with your study or work in times of war? How do you survive as an activist in Syria? What did life look like under the Assad regime? ©Power of Art House Multiple national and international artists helped Saskia Stolz to create the Aleppo installation; for example the Syrian artist Husam Muhajer, who fled to Istanbul, in Turkey. He created a miniature of the famous Citadel in Aleppo. Bengin Dawod is a famous Syrian architect who visualised his provocative vision on the reconstruction of Aleppo. Esther van der Ham painted container-schools in a refugee camp near Aleppo. For this exposition, she painted a number of miniature schools.
  13. Since we have promised you an ultimate guide that is what you will get today. An ultimate guide (not necessarily detailed for each product), for your ultimate pleasure. Definitely don't miss the suggestions at the end designed based on your specific needs. Sadly, *** toys are still not considered a part of sophisticated conversation, which also restricts the knowledge we have of the available products and companies which produce them. Most of the sales of adult toys happen online in India even though there is a surprising number of offline stores (though they can't legally sell *** toys in India) with a decent collection of the same in cities like Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Lucknow, Bangalore, et cetera. *** TOYS FOR WOMEN Although in the international markets, toys for women are equally popular, if not more than men, but in India, it isn't as big a deal. The reason being, demand equals production. But, we've got the best products right here: © Thinkstock/Getty Images Vibrators: Dildo, Luxury vibrators and egg vibrators ( strongly suggested *wink*). Anal toys: These usually include vibrators or beads. Ben Wa Balls: For strengthening your Kegel muscles ( also called, love muscles). Others: Pumps, Strap-ons (for Lesbian or Bi experiences) *** TOYS FOR MEN The most popular ones are strokers which are a tunnel-shaped, skin-textured toy that slides over your erect ***** to perfectly simulate the feeling of intercourse. You might also know them by their other name i.e. Fleshlights which is also the brand that produces them. © Amazon C-rings (or cock-rings) are stretchy bands that attach to the base of the *****. It is not for a solo act. It heightens your sensation and prolongs an erection. © Wikimedia commons ***** pumps are vacuum suction devices which pull more blood into the vessels for a harder, possibly larger-than-normal erection and temporarily enhanced *****. © Thinkstock/Getty Images *** dolls or *** doll faces or mouths or half a body. Various options are available. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Condom sleeves can be used to enlarge the size of the *****, for the pleasure of your partner. Also, butt plugs if you wish to try something new. © Thinkstock/Getty Images What do you need to know about these sites? Most of them offer discretion in their billing services as well as delivery, which removes the embarrassment of buying the products. Which Sites do you trust? Adult *** Toy India is one of the most trustworthy and first sites in India. While Onbedroom and imbesharam (whose brand ambassador is Sunny Leone) are the closest runner ups. Which toy to start with? © Thinkstock/Getty Images You won't know what works for you unless you have tried it, but the safest bets are Vibrators (please pay close attention to the sizes, maybe start with a bullet vibrator) for women and fleshlights for men or cock-rings (cheaper option). Tip: TENGA products are the cheapest and a great first buy. Also available on Amazon India. Which material should you look at? Glass: Changes temperature pretty quickly. Won't shatter when dropped. Gives the feel of metal toys. Jelly Rubber: Cheapest. If can contain the harmful chemical, phthalates. It has been replaced by Skin-safe rubber. Latex: For the real kinks and requires a considerable amount of maintenance. Metal: It is non-porous, waterproof, skin-safe, compatible with all lubricants and extra durable. Plastic: Velvety touch with metal firmness. Realistic Feel: Has the texture of human flesh. Silicone: Most popular material for *** products. How to buy your first product? There are certain specifications which need to be considered. Like, for men, these 3 specifications are most acute. How it measures up: Not the overall length but the insertable length. Also, check the girth of the toy. How it feels: Always check the material you desire and keep the place of action in mind. If you prefer bathroom then make sure that your product allows water play. Power and speed: Check the charging mode and the types of batteries. We would suggest you buy a product with multiple vibration modes. P.S.: We discovered the most interesting product during research, it is this artificial hymen. Did we say interesting? We meant creepy. Let's make our Kamasutra obsessed ancestors proud and explore our sexuality with extreme but SAFE methods. And yes, PLEASE CLEAN THESE PRODUCTS REGULARLY.
  14. First a manga, then an anime and a Japanese film and now finally, a full-fledged live action movie, ‘Death Note' literally has always been relevant. Even if you haven't watched, you must have probably heard about it. Now, the release of Netflix's live action adaptation of ‘Death Note' is a little over a month away and the excitement for it just keeps rising. We had already seen a teaser and trailer for the movie, but now Netflix has also released a short clip from the movie. © Netflix At the ongoing Comic Con in San Diego, Netflix films held court for the first time ever and moderator Terry Crews welcomed the cast and creative team of ‘Death Note'. Along with the trailer, they also presented a not seen before clip from the movie showing Light, the story's anti-hero, having his first encounter with the death god, Ryuk. The scene shows Light and Ryun forming a partnership as Ryuk gives him the power to kill anyone with just a pen and a name. © Netflix Since the movie was announced, it has just been running into trouble, mainly because of accusations of white-washing of the cast as it stars Nat Wolff as Light, and not an Asian actor. Fans were also disappointed with it turning into an action-horror movie, instead of remaining true to its psychological thriller elements. We don't feel that way as it is an American adaptation of the manga and it's their decision to use white actors. All these people complaining don't really have a leg to stand on as it is a nonsensical argument. © Netflix Well, even with the backlash, it is still highly anticipated and we all just have to wait and see how it has actually turned out. Till then we can enjoy this short scene:
  15. Our 20s are, somehow, filled with all sorts of decisions we make and they're all of them, impulsive. For instance, that time when we decided to drive down the expressway, throwing caution to the wind—no seatbelts, alcohol bottles in the hand—or that time when having *** with your then-girlfriend, sans protection made total sense because you thought you were fucking made for each other and all… the list is quite endless, really. But, for the sake of saving us all some grace; albeit fallen, I'll limit some of these mistakes to, let's say, the ten most commonly stupid mistakes. 1. Making A Big Deal Of Virginity It doesn't matter if you were a guy. You made a big deal about it—whether it was hers, or yours. If it was her, then you automatically took it to mean that she cared enough to lose it to you because you were such a man. Wrong. In your case, you took it to mean it made you into a full grown man. Again, wrong. And that's why it was stupid. You took it to mean that somehow, it made you an adult. Unfortunately, you would learn much later in life that being mature, adult and growing up are three very different things. © Pexels 2. Being A Part Of A Posse Years later, you'd either look at photographs of yourself, or at a mental picture that is somehow still engraved in your brain and wonder how stupid could you even be. With that hair style that could qualify as that of a psychopath's and those jeans hanging a little lower than the crack of your butt hole—and how you thought no end of yourself. Look at you now. 3. Fucking Like A Gorilla At Every Chance You Got Because all of a sudden you realized this new thing about yourself that you never could understand before, for the longest time. Because suddenly, you realized that this new thing is the portal to all kinds of pleasure chests you had no idea existed and all you wanted to do was get it on with someone like your life and the existence of the entire human race depended on it. Only, later you sit back on a couch, or a bed, alone and masturbating, wondering what the hell did that even amount to anyway? Okay, maybe your *** count went up to soaring heights; but, look at you now. © Pexels 4. Drinking Till You Passed Out Or till you puked on someone's shoes; or worse, on your own self; day after day, every day. It was so fucking cool back then, no? Sounds familiar? Do you still remember what you smelled like—alcohol with or without puke? Do you still remember what it felt like the morning after? Do you wonder how moronic you were on a level of one to a trillion? It sure seemed like you could conquer the world with nothing but a bottle in your hands back then. Now, you can barely conquer your work assignment without being called out by seniors. 5. Driving With Reckless Abandon For some reason it felt good to show off to your guy friends that somehow, your balls were bigger than theirs; and to your girlfriends that you were such a daredevil, hoping that would make them wetter for you. It didn't even strike you that you could be in a terrible accident because you were under the blinded impression that you had it under control. Well, you never really did and look at you now. © Pexels 6. Doing Drugs Like A Cartel Leader Because it was so damn cool. Everyone who was ever classified as cool was doing it—in the abandoned floor of the school, in the dark alley behind the college campus, in the backseat of the car in the dead of the night. You were scoring and doing it as much as you can while you kept telling yourself that you were never really addicted. And slowly losing grasp over the difference between control and addiction. It started to blur to a point where you couldn't tell anymore. 7. Disrespecting Your Folks You were, after all, so damned busy having a life, any which way. So, why would you ever want to spend your time listening to your parents' just try to ask after you because they were concerned about your wellbeing? Remember how you found it such a waste of time spending the day with your family when you could be doing something cooler like laying waste like a rotting vegetable, doing drugs, talking trash about some girl you found hot and how you'd really like to be like that dude you think is the coolest? Years have gone by; that dude is in rehab for the third time and your “friends” are nowhere to be found... Look at you now… © Pexels 8. Being Such A Player It was the bar for measuring how much of a man you really were—after driving recklessly, making a big deal about virginity and acting out. You were so proud of yourself when you announced how you were two-timing the women in your life. And then again, your friends looked at you like you were a God when you were cheating on your girlfriend with every other girl you met. How you never even thought it necessary to even announce to the “other” woman that you were taken? It felt like such an ego boost for an alpha male to have. But, what really alpha about the male in you, aside from the fact that you could hold an erection for a few good minutes just to ram it in and out and ejaculate on how manly you were? 9. Throwing Money Like You Were Creating It It felt good to have a fat wallet that you could use to splurge on men, women and toys just because your father and mother worked really hard to give you that and because you seemed to think you were entitled to that just because you were their kid. Did it buy you great friends, loving relationships and unbroken promises? Did it make you less of a jerk and a little more human? Or did it just make you dispensable and by extension, disposable… just like the cash in your big fat wallet? © Pexels 10. Not Giving A Single **** About the road signs, the street animals, the rules of the administration, the feelings of the people around you and anything in general. It made you the coolest stud around. You liked how your response to almost everything in your life back then was “I give zero fucks”. It somehow made you seem like you were unfuckwithable. Wrong. It just meant you had no strings attached to anything or anyone. That you were a lose nut who didn't care enough about anything and so could cut lose at any given moment. It made you untrustworthy. Do you still give zero fucks about the next person who does that to you?
  16. Just a few days ago, Sunny Leone put an end to the rumours that she was expecting a baby and told reporters that this was just not the right time for her to get pregnant with so much going on in her life. But she also added, “But who knows, some day I will just walk in with a baby in hand. And everyone will be shocked, where did the baby come from?” And, well, exactly that has happened. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Sunny Leone and her husband Daniel Weber revealed that they have adopted a baby girl named Nisha Kaur Weber, and according to Sunny, it was love at first sight. A post shared by Sunny Leone (@sunnyleone) on Jul 8, 2017 at 11:20pm PDT Even though it came out of the blue, isn't it such good news? “It's a responsibility for the rest of our lives. But we have been ready for that — physically, mentally and financially. We were working really hard because we wanted to start a family, and this is the way it's going to start, so it's amazing,” said Sunny Leone. They took the decision to adopt almost two years ago, when they visited an orphanage. But they soon realized the timing wasn't up to them. She said, “We didn't decide. The Indian government and Cara agency decided when we were ready (smiles). We didn't know that you don't get to choose the ashram or orphanage that you adopt from, the ministry chooses for you.” A post shared by Sunny Leone (@sunnyleone) on Jun 24, 2017 at 8:59am PDT And they didn't come up with the name Nisha. Daniel said, “That was her name. They told us that we can change and we had our minds filled with names but she is who she is. Every time, we called her by other names, it just didn't fit her.” Seems like they are pretty excited about being parents, though. A post shared by Sunny Leone (@sunnyleone) on Jul 4, 2017 at 8:13am PDT And if people question them about adoption, Daniel has the perfect response, “When people ask, ‘why did they adopt?' our counter is, ‘oh, why not?' That's normal for us.” Sunny seems to be completely in love with her new baby and, at the end of the day, that is all that matters. She said, “She is so cute. The moment she looks up at you and smiles, it just melts your heart. I look forward to her growing up to become an independent and being her own woman.” A post shared by Sunny Leone (@sunnyleone) on Jun 5, 2017 at 7:00am PDT Well, congratulations to them for finally becoming parents to the most adorable little girl!
  17. Off all the reasons this year's Tour de France will be remembered for cyclist Pawel Poljanski will definitely be a part of them. Poljanski recently posted a picture on Instagram of his legs which is proof enough to freak anyone out and make them realize the toughness of this contest. How tough the contest is has always triggered the curiosity of cycling enthusiasts, and after looking at this picture we don't think that we're ready to even get on a tricycle. After sixteen stages I think my legs look little tired 😬 #tourdefrance A post shared by Paweł Poljański (@p.poljanski) on Jul 18, 2017 at 10:04am PDT The caption of this picture, “After sixteen stages I think my legs look a little tired” has left many of us shocked and wondering if this is how his legs look when he is ‘little tired', what happens when he is completely exhausted. Well, soon the picture spread like a wild forest fire and people started expressing their concern over the condition of his legs. Ciao Rafa. See you in Vuelta! #live #cycling A post shared by Paweł Poljański (@p.poljanski) on Jul 11, 2017 at 1:34am PDT His picture sent the internet into a meltdown and people started question if this is even healthy. Clearing the air around this, Dr. Bradley Launikonis from the University of Queensland's School of Biomedical Science, said that as compared to recreation exercisers, professional cyclists experience double the blood flow to their legs. According to a report published in The Daily Mail, he said “The amount of blood normally going down to our legs is five liters per minute. For an untrained athlete, maximum exercise will have 20 liters per minute. These elite cyclists will have double that, about 40 liters per minute.” He further added, “The blood can pool there too and that's what's happening in this extreme case.” Despite being equally shocked as we are, the good folks on Twitter didn't lose their sheen and expressed their concern in their own regular savage style. Looks like Melisandre's legs after she took the necklace off....😖#GameOfThrones — LSUguru (@LSU_fan77) July 18, 2017 @jwilphotos I thought that was deer legs in the thumbnail — DJ Hella Yella (@djhellayella) July 19, 2017 You sure it's not a result of all the performance enhancement drugs that are very prominent amongst cyclists? — Thabani (@tkmash) July 19, 2017 If you think that looks bad, here's how the upper body appeared: pic.twitter.com/VBJyirMFG3 — John Kryk (@JohnKryk) July 19, 2017 And I'm like... pic.twitter.com/AlsPMiHMHj — Usama Aftab (@robingosh) July 19, 2017 @brivera_04 who skipped leg day? — RJC (@RJC_32) July 18, 2017 I though another well preserved mummy had been discovered. — Kevin Litke (@klitke605) July 19, 2017 This year's Tour de France is being led by Chris Froome. It is three-week event with 21 stages of super intense cycling mapped out in the toughest terrain of the French countryside.
  18. The first episode of ‘Game of Thrones' did exactly what it was meant to – tease our curiosity just enough to make us impatient for the next episode. The episode also made it quite clear that the women of GOT were here to rule and they ain't taking shit anymore. While Arya moves on towards Kings' Landing after a bout of badassery at the House of Frey, Daenerys arrives at Dragonstone with steely resolve in her eyes. © HBO Much impatient as we are to see the 2nd episode, HBO has released a set of new pictures along with a brief synopsis, giving us a teaser of what is to come. The synopsis reads: “Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros.” Let's look at the pictures and try to decipher what they mean: © HBO Definitely a confrontation between Jon Snow and Littlefinger! About time. We wonder if Petyr Baelish will move back to Vale or if he'll be able to change Sansa's loyalties. © HBO That looks like Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand. Clearly, Daenerys is getting more allies on her side. Remember how in last season, Yara and Theon set off with a thousand ships for Mereen. © HBO Clearly, winter has arrived. Jon Snow could be travelling in search of dragonglass, the only material that can kill a Whitewalker. Little does he know that his dear friend Sam Tarly has already stumbled upon the location of dragonglass – the map in the book says there is a mountain of dragonglass at Dragonstone. © HBO Frankly, we are eagerly awaiting Arya's adventures, considering her savage sequence in the first episode. From the picture, it looks like she's still in the North, obviously because King's Landing is a thousand miles away. But the anxious look on her face betrays a tough encounter on the way. © HBO The shitty torture Samwell Tarly is subjected to still makes us want to hurl. This photograph gives us some hope he might just have been able to convince the maester of the impending danger from the whitewalkers. © HBO Much has been said about Sansa's new hairstyle that is strikingly similar to Cersei's. With this grim expression in the next episode, we think there might be some hard decisions she will be seen making. There are already speculations that she might turn evil like Cersei, someone who has inadvertently taught her the ways of the world.
  19. Amole Gupte, who is known for giving us some exceptional movies like ‘Taare Zameen Par' and ‘Stanley Ka Dabba', is back in action with India's first kid's action adventure movie ‘Sniff'. What will you do if you wake up one day and realize that you can sniff or smell things that are miles away from you? Well, some of us would probably channelize that power towards figuring out which restaurant offers the best food. But Sunny, a young school going boy, thinks differently. He uses his sniffing power to catch criminals and that's how Bollywood gets its youngest spy, who can give even James Bond or Sherlock a run for their money. © Eros International The movie talks about Sunny, played by Khushmeet Gill, who can't smell and because of this, people compare this issue with the inability to see things. However, while wandering through a laboratory, he smells some chemical concoction, which gives him the power that no one else has – to smell anything and anyone even if they are miles away. And then starts the journey of this cute superhero to help catch criminals. The charm of Amole Gupte's movies is that you always feel some sort of connection with the kids and their issues. The sensitive yet adorable portrayal of problems instantly hits us right in the feels and leaves a smile on our faces, each time we watch them struggle. So folks, get ready to watch this cute kid turn into one of the coolest spy superheroes of his time on July 23rd. Check out the trailer here.
  20. The kingpin of Instagram and a hero for a lot of men in the world, Dan Bilzerian leads a life which is controversial, to say the least. While women find it degrading, many men across the world see him as an icon. And why shouldn't they? He lives the life and gives zero fucks about it. Watermelon on the water A post shared by Dan Bilzerian (@danbilzerian) on Sep 4, 2016 at 3:08am PDT Breaking in my new slippers A post shared by Dan Bilzerian (@danbilzerian) on Aug 20, 2016 at 5:03pm PDT He is possibly the last person on this earth who will promote monogamy and the idea of having one partner. However, the impossible has happened and Dan has confessed that he is indeed in his first ever monogamous relationship. 🐢 A post shared by Dan Bilzerian (@danbilzerian) on Feb 22, 2017 at 10:27am PST The woman in question here is Sofia Bevarly, a model herself. He described herself as ‘super hot' and ‘smart'.

  21. Guillermo Del Toro, the man who gave us classics like ‘Hellboy 1 &2', ‘Pacific Rim', ‘Blade 2' and ‘Pan's Labyrinth' is back with another fascinating movie, ‘The Shape Of Water' that has given us another reason to look forward to December, apart from Christmas. Set against the backdrop of the 1963 Cold War-era, this movie revolves about an intimate friendship that develops between Elisa, “the princess without a voice” and an aquatic monster. © Fox Searchlight Pictures Sally Hawkins plays Elisa, a mute woman who is trapped in a life of silence and isolation, while working in a high-security government laboratory. She and her co-worker Zelda, played by Octavia Spencer, discover a secret experiment that involves a strange aquatic creature, played by Doug Jones. What happens when the two come close to each other and how an unusual bond is formed between the two, weaves the rest of the plot. © Fox Searchlight Pictures In all honesty, when it comes to monster movies, I am slightly biased towards Bong Joon Ho's ‘The Host' and I am sure many of you would agree with me, because it portrayed monsters in the most badass and scariest way ever. However, given Del Toro's exceptional directorial prowess and the gripping trailer, this movie could just be next big thing in the science fiction or fantasy thriller genre. Names like Richard Jenkins, Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg and Vanessa Taylor of ‘Game Of Thrones' fame round off the cast. This other-worldly fairytale is slated to hit the theatres in the US on December 8th. Watch the trailer right here.
  22. The trailer for ‘Bareily Ki Barfi' is out now and by the looks of it, the movie looks like one of the promising entertainers of the year. The movie stars Kriti Sanon who will remind you of Rani from ‘Bunty Aur Babli'. © Youtube The other stars in the movie are Ayushmann Khurranna and Rajkummar Rao. The best part of the movie is actually the mutual loathing between the actors which will make you ignore Kriti as well. © YouTube The movie is inspired from a book called ‘Ingredients of Love'. The whole UP vibe has been captured pretty well by Nitesh Tiwari. Definitely looking forward to this one!
  23. Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan just can't stop doing each other favours! First Shah Rukh Khan made a special appearance in Salman Khan's movie ‘Tubelight' and then we heard about how the latter is returning the favour with a cameo in for Aanand L Rai's forthcoming movie starring SRK. The two were recently seen shooting a song for the yet to be titled movie, which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. When SRK was asked how difficult it was to convince Salman for this cameo, he said it was actually quite easy. © Twitter Talking about it, SRK gave a quote to PTI, "He is very kind. This (role) was written a long time back in the film, from the first narration onwards. Salman has also heard the script, I think Aanand wanted to make the film with him at one time. They didn't have the time, things didn't work out and VFX wasn't ready." Apparently, the role was finalized when he was having a get-together at his home and Salman dropped by to give him a special gift. Salman surprised Shah Rukh and his children with his newly launched e-cycle. © Twitter "We were at home, Aanand was there when Salman just walked in to say hi to me. He got his new e-cycle for me and for Aryan and Suhana as well. Aanand said I should ask him. I said, 'Salman, there's one role', he said, 'Yeah, let me know'.” And seems like that was it! © Twitter "Then, everything just worked out perfectly. He had two days off, we needed ten days to put up the set," added Shah Rukh.
  24. Xiaomi is back in action again and this time the Chinese company has launched the updated Mi Max 2 in India. The smartphone has a 6.44-inch screen and is the latest iteration of the original Mi Max from last year. © Xiaomi The massive phablet type smartphone has a whopping 5,300 mAh battery and has a Full HD 6.44-inch screen.

  25. For the past couple of days, two people have been making headlines because of promotional posters released by Yash Raj Films. For those who couldn't figure it out yet, we are talking about the newcomers Anya Singh and Aadar Jain, who are all set to floor us with their upcoming movie ‘Qaidi Band'. Aadar Jain is Ranbir Kapoor's cousin andRaj Kapoor's grandson. The movie's much-awaited trailer was finally released today and in all honesty, the trailer gave away the whole gist of the film and did not intrigue us at all. © Yash Raj Films The trailer starts with a scene of jail inmates fighting and placing bets and doing all sorts of random things to make money. The plot then gradually shifts to the under-trials forming an orchestra band to perform on Independence Day. The under-trials soon put their hopes of freedom on music and start giving their best, but right when they are about to be released, something unexpected happens. While, at some places it looks like a combination of Ranbir Kapoor's ‘Rockstar' and Farhan Akhtar's ‘Rock On', there is another movie that is based on similar lines. The movie is ‘Lucknow Central' and talks about a jail inmate who forms his band inside the jail. It stars Farhan Akhtar, Diana Penty, Gippy Grewal, Ronit Roy and Deepak Dobriyal among others. Check out the trailer here. The concept is interesting and different from what YRF usually delivers, but the trailer did not impress us at all. Further, the lead pair failed to stand out, although some of their dialogues were really amazing. It is written and directed by Habib Faisal and produced by Aditya Chopra. Whether this movie manages to leave an impact on the audience will be known on August 25, when it hits theatres.
