  1. Date nights during this ongoing pandemic can sometimes be tricky if distance is the dampener. While going out for movies is a luxury we all have forgotten and also crave, thanks to the magic of the internet, it is still possible to catch a movie with bae while you both are miles apart. Here are some romantic Punjabi movies which are easy to understand and also easily available on OTT platforms for the next date night: 1. SufnaThe last 2 years have seen Punjabi star Ammy Virk rise up high in terms of his music, selection of movies and his highly anticipated Bollywood debut in 83. Sufna is a very simple, sweet love story between two people struggling with their own circumstances and dreaming of being with each other. A really good pick for that movie date night. 2. Laung LaachiIf you haven’t watched the movie then you obviously have heard this song and danced to it at some point of time last year. Starring the gorgeous Neeru Bajwa in the lead role, this is a simple tale of a woman and a man trying to make sense of life after an arranged marriage gets them together. The husband tries to woo his wife and help her chase all her dreams. This movie is a good reminder that dreams that are fulfilled together, bring two people closer than ever. 3. QismatI like to call it the Punjabi version of Rockstar , or something on those lines at least. The fact that a super hit song inspired the makers to plan and produce a whole movie is proof enough that besides being a wonderfully made movie, the songs of this film are something that need to be on your playlist. 4. AfsarAnother innocent tale of two people trying to get together in a world full of people with cruel intentions. This is an old-school romance movie and hence it is perfect to watch it with bae when all you want is some mush with that tub of popcorn. 5. Manje BistreThis two part romcom stars Gippy Grewal and Sonam Bajwa in the lead roles. The romantic tale follows a man who falls for his sister’s friend while she is already engaged to another man. A lot of confusion follows as love blossoms in between. View the full article
  2. US President Donald Trump often says things that confuse people and make them wonder if he really knows nothing or just pretends to be kinda dumb this way. His recent comment proved that he has no idea how forest fires work. In a new, illogical and unscientific claim, he said that ‘trees just explode’. When he was asked questions related to the US wildfires as to how they started, his reply shocked people across the globe. Great to be back in Philadelphia. Thank you Pennsylvania, see you again soon! #MAGA pic.twitter.com/l82C4TdlAE — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2020 He further supported his argument by saying that wildfires are caused by poor forest maintenance which makes them more combustible. He said, "There has to be strong forest management. With regard to the forests, when trees fall down after a short period of time, about 18 months, they become very dry. They become really like a match stick. They just explode." Forest fires across California, Oregon, and Washington burnt over five million acres this year and forced thousands of people to leave their homes. The towns have been completely ruined by infernos and have pumped out noxious fumes that have polluted the air for days blocking the Sun and making it extremely difficult to breathe.

You just watch.” Wade Crowfoot, the head of the California Natural Resources Agency replied saying, “I wish science agreed with you.” “I don't think science knows, actually," Trump said. "We may be experiencing an irreversible ecological tipping point ... #heatwaves and fires like what we are seeing in #California, #Oregon & #Washington will continue to worsen as long as humanity continues to burn fossil fuels." https://t.co/sRJLAMOisi #ClimateChange #USWildfires — Ed Joyce (@EdJoyce) September 12, 2020 Here’s what people on the internet have to say about Trump’s bizarre comment- After hearing Trump is America's President. — MKS (@secularzihadi) September 16, 2020After hearing Trump is America's President. — MKS (@secularzihadi) September 16, 2020 pic.twitter.com/XaDsv7cMWo — ฟาร์ฮัด เบห์เรน่า (@MadMonkIndie) September 16, 2020Lol the crazy things I get to read sometimes. .. — Grajales (@Carlovesfam) September 13, 2020What do you think about Trump's comment that ‘trees just explode’?

  3. Bollywood is standing divided after Kangana Ranaut spoke about the drug cartel in the industry. She went on to tweet that everyone should give a drug test and she is on a mission to clear the ‘gutter’ of Bollywood. With each passing day, we think it’s getting uglier and there seems to be no end to it. Now, Urmila Matondkar has joined the dialogue and has hit back at the Manikarnika actor with three strong and sensible statements. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@urmilamatondkarofficial) In an interview with India Today, Urmila raised these valid points in response to Kangana's remarks about Bollywood 1. Urmila said that Kangana also needs to acknowledge the state of drugs in Himachal Pradesh. “The entire country is facing the menace of drugs. Does she (Kangana) know Himachal is the origin of drugs? She should start from her own state,” she told India Today. 2. She also questioned Kangana for always playing the victim card. She said, “If one person shouts all the time, doesn’t mean the person is speaking the truth. Some people want to crib all the time and play the victim card and if all that fails, they play the woman card.” View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@kanganaranaut) 3. She also questioned why Kangana was quiet all the time and why didn’t she give all the information she had to the police. “Why did this person who has been given Y-security from the taxpayers’ money didn’t give information about the drug nexus to the police?” she added. For the uninitiated, Kangana had claimed that she feels unsafe in Mumbai and even compared the city with Pakistan occupied Kashmir which created a big controversy. Do you agree with what Urmila said in her statement? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article
  4. Trimming eyebrows is probably the last thing men have on their minds. While trimming a beard or going for a haircut takes precedence, eyebrow trimming usually falls behind. Eyebrow trimming is quite important, as the hair grows in an uneven manner, which makes the shape quite scraggly. You don't need to run to the salon yet as there are some basic grooming tricks that will help trim your brows, no matter how thick they are. These steps are trouble-free and can be done from the comfort of your home: 1. Use A Moustache Comb © iStock A moustache comb works well before you start trimming your brows. Opt for a flat-top toothbrush. To give your eyebrows the right shape, you would also need a pair of scissors, and since you would be trimming up close, a pointed-tip eyebrow scissor works well. 2. Examine Your Face © iStock Trimming can go wrong in many ways, so to be safe, the very first thing you need to do is understand your face shape. The main goal is to pluck the extra hair while not compromising on changing your look and thinning your brows. For that, just snip the ends gently, using the natural line of your brows as a guide. 3. Comb Upward © iStock Take a smaller sized comb and brush your eyebrows in an upward direction, vertically. To check the length of your brows you can comb against the grain and you will notice how long the hair strands are. Let the brow hair be in this position before you start trimming. 4. Work Along The Brow Line © iStock Take your scissor and go up close near your eyebrow. The hair that falls out of your brow line should be trimmed. Without compromising the shape, move along and trim the hair gently. When you are done with one eyebrow, move onto the next one. Check if both the eyebrows look equal. Now that you are done, comb back the hair into its place. You will see that your brows look way tidier than before. 5. Usage Of A Trimmer © iStock If you are someone with bushy eyebrows, there are eyebrow trimmers that are useful for cutting bulky eyebrow hair. For a more uniform look, gently use the trimmer and move along the grain till it forms a perfect, uniform length. 6. Clean It Up © iStock Now that you have cleaned your brows, use a tweezer to get rid of the errant hair. Pluck hair that falls outside the eyebrow length. Make sure you trim your unibrow as well. This way, your eyebrows will look uniform and of the same length. 7. Final Touch © iStock Once you are done, let your brow rest. Splash your face with cold water, to get rid of any stray strands on your face from the tweezing. Use a brow gel that helps smooth the strands. Doing this will help you take a closer look at any hair that you might have missed while trimming. You can also make use of aloe vera gel, in case you don't have a brow gel at home.

  5. Everyone has their quirks which are, for the most part, quite endearing. But, sometimes it gets way too annoying and becomes an easy target for trolls. As we all know, there are only a few things Amitabh Bachchan cares more about than getting the numbering of his tweets right. Why does he need to put the number before every tweet in the first place? Only he knows that, and if it makes him happy, there's no problem, as it's not affecting anyone. View the full article
  6. Now that more films are in production again, we've started seeing more celebrities stepping out. Varun Dhawan, for instance, usually keeps his outfits high-fashion for major award functions. However, for his everyday wardrobe, he prefers his vests and typical workout gear. After his work out sessions, he sticks to denims, leather jackets, graphic t-shirts, and ripped jeans on most days. © Viral Bhayani We also think that amid the pandemic, when one would rather keep their outfit functional and something that makes it easy to take all the necessary precautions, Varun Dhawan's outfits prove to be the best bet. We're talking relaxed silhouettes, fanny packs, sneakers and airy fabrics that don't get uncomfortable especially while stepping out during the day. © Viral Bhayani Case in point, recently Varun Dhawan stepped out in a pair of track pants, a bright orange jacket with a basic grey vest underneath it. And to complete the look, he also wore a pair of vibrant sneakers. Take a look at his outfit here. © Viral Bhayani He was seen wearing the Running Zig Kinetica Horizon shoes from Reebok. The vibrant sneaker silhouette has multiple colourways and a rainbow sole. It also features white and orange swooshes that are the dominant colourways on the silhouette. The sneaker is priced at Rs. 11,999 and comes under the unisex category. Here's what it looks like: © Rebok The multi-coloured sneaker silhouette with its air mesh design is definitely worth collecting. The versatile design can work well with most outfits as the sneaker complements most colours seamlessly. © Viral Bhayani Varun Dhawan is currently focusing on his upcoming Diwali release Coolie No.1 which also stars Sara Ali Khan and is directed by David Dhawan. He will also be seen in Mr. Lele and Rannbhoomi that are scheduled for next year. View the full article
  7. The pandemic is far from coming to an end and the chances of a vaccine also seem bleak but the Delhi government has now opened the metro trains nearly after five months. The metro services were closed all across the nation due to the country-wide lockdown. Now, the metro trains are up and running across all cities but with the only limited operation. The people are supposed to follow strict metro regulations amid pandemic to contain the spreading of the virus. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal also took to Twitter saying, "happy that the Metro is starting from today and "good arrangements" have been made, the Chief Minister put in a word of caution and said, "We all should not be negligent in taking precautions". Check out the post here- मुझे ख़ुशी है कि आज से मेट्रो शुरू हो रही है। मेट्रो ने अच्छे इंतज़ाम किए हैं। हम सबको भी सावधानी बरतने में कोई लापरवाही नहीं करनी। https://t.co/bFUz9XXk74 — Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) September 7, 2020 A commuter told ANI, “Passengers need to take all precautions while travelling. Service hours should be gradually extended.” However, Delhi metro posted happy faces of passengers while they were seen commuting in Delhi Metro comfortably. A few happy faces from our first journey after more than 5 months. #MetroBackOnTrack pic.twitter.com/mIuVK9wHGp — Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (@OfficialDMRC) September 7, 2020 People also said that it is a great move by the Delhi government and passengers just have to follow some precautionary rules to keep themselves safe. People taking the #DelhiMetro on the first day of resumption of services say, "It is a very good move. Metro rail helps save time and money. Passengers need to take all precautions while travelling. Service hours should be gradually extended." pic.twitter.com/f6I3Z2aGxH — ANI (@ANI) September 7, 2020 Here’s what people have to say about the government’s decision to open Metro trains amid a pandemic- All the best ! — Prince Aggarwal (@freakishmee92) September 7, 2020As long as re-opening metros does not lead to a surge in cases, it is fine. It is an aspect that should be regularly noted in order to see if its safe to open public transport. — Reyansh Madan (@madan_reyansh) September 7, 2020Great Effort... — Anil Kumar Dalal (@anil_dalal1501) September 7, 2020Challenging responsibility, good luck — Lakhan singh Meena Khirkhira (@7870lakhan) September 7, 2020@CMOMaharashtra @uddhavthackeray @mybmc When will the Mumbaikars see these happy faces in Metro!!! — Mohit Andurkar (@mohitsmartlove) September 7, 2020The Home Ministry has issued strict guidelines allowing Metro services in the country to resume operations in a graded manner. The rules revolve majorly around contactless travel in the metro and no tokens being issues. The passengers will only sit on alternate seats and will have to wear a mask at all times. Stoppage time at each station has also increased to maintain proper social distancing. There will be no stoppage in containment zones according to the rules and regulations. View the full article
  8. If there's one thing about Sidharth's sartorial choices that has struck us the most, it is his way of decking up in classic silhouettes. On days when there's no event, he is usually seen in a casual form that never fails to grab our attention. © Viral Bhayani While we have seen the star wear some zany sneakers over the years, the actor took us surprise this time by wearing a super statement piece, besides his sneakers. He wore camouflage joggers that are nothing but unique and make for a perfect outfit to don during the pandemic. © Off-White He is seen wearing Off-White Military Green Cotton Diagonal Joggers. With the brand's signature stripes at the back and camouflage print all over, these joggers are striking and a comfortable choice to wear for casual outings. The stripes at the back are super bright and grab attention like none of the other pieces from his outfit. The actor chose to wear this eccentric piece with a basic black T-shirt and a yellow N95 mask and the whole outfit looks quite stylish. © Viral Bhayani As for the price of the joggers, the original cost is almost Rs 40,000 but you can find it for as low as Rs 18,000 on several e-commerce websites. This is a clever outfit to wear in Mumbai rains with the shoes getting dirtier and the joggers being so bright. Well done, Sidharth! View the full article
  9. Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter are pairing up for the first time with their upcoming film, Khaali Peeli. The makers dropped a brand new track, but it seems like people are not approving of the song. Titled Beyonce Sharma Jayegi, the song features Ananya and Ishaan pulling off some impressive moves. People have loved their dance moves but are complaining about the cringeworthy lyrics. The song has been composed by the supremely talented duo Vishal-Shekhar and singers Nakash Aziz and Neeti Mohan have lent their voices. Here's the song: People are not at all happy with how they have compared Ananya to Beyonce. They are slamming the song on social media. Here are the reactions: © Ishaan Khatter Instagram © Ishaan Khatter Instagram © Ishaan Khatter Instagram The lyrics are surely cringe-worthy and we wonder what was the need for such a terrible remix. We really wish Bollywood comes up with some original and refreshing tracks. While Ishaan did impress us with his dance skills, his moves have certainly dwarfed Ananya. Talking about the song, choreographer Caesar Gonsalves told Mumbai Mirror, “We experimented with everything, from popping, locking, fire juggling and b-boying to kalarippayattu and Gujarati folk. Ishaan is a fantastic dancer and picked up the moves with ease while Ananya surprised me with her dedication. We rehearsed for four days and shot over three days." The song incorporates 12 dance forms. Well, people have been wanting to boycott the movie ever since it has been announced. With the song, the makers have also announced the release date and people have flooded social media with reactions. #AnanyaPandey #IshaanKhatter #KhaaliPeeli to release on 2nd octo Rukna nahi hai pic.twitter.com/kktuLfDYgN — ravi shastri (@pbhavesh01) September 7, 2020#KhaaliPeeli People are waiting for finding the trailer and without watching dislike , trust it will shiver down the spine to release anything in ott pic.twitter.com/AnRCOGJVN6 — Bharat Aurangabadkar (@Disruptionext) September 7, 2020Alia Bhatt: log abhi tak sadak 2 ko dislike kar rahe hai... ruk hi nahi rahe..

  10. We know that Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man drives around in a supremely delectable Audi R8, an Audi e-tron GT & an Acura NSX. In real life though, he is a proper petrolhead, who actually prefers some really cool vintage sports and muscle cars, over the self-driving, electric cars. © AFP We take a look at his current garage, which will leave even the most ardent of car collectors and petrolheads, green with envy. Now, do keep in mind, RDJ loves modifying his cars, and gets some really cool customisations done, like all true petrolheads. So, putting a price on them would be nearly impossible. © AFP 1. 1974 BMW 3.0 CS (Modified) © SpeedKore Robert just recently took possession of this car. He basically took a 40-year-old car, had it modified with a 21st-century engine and drivetrain, updated the interiors and the suspension. This is a cracker of a car and shows just how well Robert knows his cars. 2. 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 (Modified) © SpeedKore Until the BMW rolled in, this was the crown jewel of Robert Downey Jr’s garage. He got it back in 2017, and again, had it customised - a new engine, new wheels, new bodywork, and a touch screen infotainment screen. A little odd if you ask us, but hey, if that’s how he rolls, so be it. 3. 1965 Corvette Stingray Convertible © Reuters This is a dream car for many collectors around the world. Downey did not go bonkers crazy with this car, he just had it restored, the engine tuned a bit, and the wheels replaced. Admit it, it does look super cool, doesn’t it? 4. 2009 Audi R8 © Audi Of course, given how often he has driven the R8 on screen, he was bound to fall in love with the car and buy one. His R8 has one of those original V8 engines that Audi made in partnership with Lamborghini, before upgrading the heck out of it for their newer models. 5. Ferrari California T © AFP As far as we can tell, this is the only Ferrari that Downey has. The California T had become a rage in LA, given that it was the cheapest Ferrari money could buy. Instead of a loud and brash colour that would stand out, Downey went for blue. Not a fan of the Ferrari, it seems. 6. Bentley Continental GT © AFP Apparently, Robert was gifted a matte green coloured Bentley Continental GT as a gift for his performance in Iron Man 3 in 2013. Talk about perks and bonuses. This certainly is a bonus that would put a smile on a face. 7. Audi e-tron GT Concept © AFP Robert Downey Jr has gone on record and said that he often takes things from the set of his films. One such “thing” that he was actually offered to take with him from one of the Avengers films, is one of the Audi e-tron GT Concept that the carmakers gave Marvel Studios for the film. Yup, that’s a concept car, which means that firstly, the car is worth millions, and secondly, that it is an extremely unique car. 8. 2012 Nissan GT-R © Reddit/r/Nissan In case you ever wonder just how amazing the Japanese are in terms of engineering, you’ve got to see, or at least look up the original GT-R. Downey bought his GT-R for about $80,000, and apparently, spent another $90,000 to get it modified, tuned and customised. 9. 2017 Audi R8 Spyder © AFP Finally, there is this, the 2017 Audi R8 spyder. Robert got himself a more hardcore version of the two R8s he already had (yup, he has 3). The red one is a spyder, or in layman’s terms, a convertible. Such an exquisite collection of cars shows that Robert is no slouch when it comes to cars. We just wonder, how much are all these cars worth, and how much did he spend modifying the ones he did.

  11. It’s almost been half-a-year since the outside world felt like the real deal, you know how it was until the day before the Janata Curfew hit the country on 22nd March and then nothing was ever the same again? We’d thought and wished and hoped for the claps and bartan-banging to do the trick and get rid of coronavirus before it tramped in like an unwelcome guest. Hell, we even agreed to sacrifice a Sunday for the good cause, but what happened? Right after, we were put on an unofficial house arrest for the longest time, and it was only with Unlock 1.0 in June that things began to look up once again. We could finally step out, go out for walks in the park and even head to work in certain cases - we finally had our reasons (read: excuses) to reclaim the old life or whatever of it the Unlock(s) allowed us to take back. © BCCL But didn’t Unlock-ing(s) mean that things were finally under control and the pandemic situation was improving? Why then is the media claiming that India is becoming the newest COVID epicentre? Well, welcome to the real world where fantasies of “normal”, pre-COVID life are costing real people their lives because a few of us vehemently deny to see that the worst is not yet over for India when it comes to the pandemic. For instance, thousands of people are knowingly doing these dangerous things which are quickly turning our country into a coronavirus epicentre. 1. People Have Broken Up With Face Masks © TOI This was perhaps the most initial and basic word of caution that the government had underlined when coronavirus had just broken out. Masks were made mandatory for a reason and fines, punishments were put in place for violation because wearing masks is one of the most effective ways to contain this virus from spreading. But now, we have gone from using it as our mouth and chin-covers to completely ditching the masks on certain occasions. Strong and detailed research has established that wearing masks not only protect a healthy person from getting infected but also prevents an infected (and asymptomatic) person from transmitting it to someone else. But now with Unlock-ing(s) in place and with so many people ‘chilling’ and roaming about with no mask or half-mask on, the spread has only gotten worse. 2. Tales Of Precautions Have Been Long Forgotten © Pexels Remember when the pandemic had just broken out, people went into a frenzy stocking up on hand sanitizers, disinfectants and hand-wash. Maybe it was the fear of the unknown, but the initial panic did make people take safety precautions to heart. Maintaining hand hygiene became second nature, while we thought twice before touching anything and everything, literally. This was (and still is) our first layer of defence against COVID-19 and its spread. But now with people gradually ‘learning to live with the virus’, complacency has seeped in through the cracks in people’s resolve. With the dissipation of fear and in a way making peace with the world where a pandemic is at large, many people also seem to have shed their inhibitions and can now be seen in public armed without their PPE gear. 3. Physical Distancing Is For Strangers © Instagram/Karishma Kapoor As stupid as it sounds, you will be amazed to find how many people around you actually believe and follow it or just don’t at all. The next best thing after masks and hygiene is to stay away from sources of potential virus transmission - that is, maining the two-meter physical distance between people and avoid crowded places. However, the rules of physical distancing have since changed with people not only reserving it for “strangers”, but what’s worse, people have started to hang out and even party together in clusters now. Since partying out isn’t an option yet, house parties are quickly becoming a thing and with restaurants opening up for dine-ins, people have begun to meetup for their weekly lunches together. This, while totally ignoring the fact that contaminated surfaces and public places can be quick sources of transmission. Not only is physical distancing and mask protocol being rejected for a hearty meal shared with friends, but groupfies are also back with a passion after these long overdue reunions which come at a cost of safety to people’s lives and stem largely from social media peer pressure. 4. Staying At Home Is For The Faint-Hearted © Instagram/Sonam Kapoor Ahuja While it needs to be understood why it became essential for the government to begin unlocking, it appears that most people fail to realise the unlock(s) are happening for the sake of a dwindling economy and not because the virus situation is improving in our country. Just because free movement is opening up, it doesn’t mean we have to step out of our homes when we can easily avoid it. What’s with hanging out at malls and visiting friends and family as if you’re on a state-sponsored holiday? How is the visit to that food joint not avoidable when you can easily order food home? Why is that football match in the neighborhood suddenly the most crucial event of your life? Staying at home isn’t only for our personal safety, but also for those who didn’t act as recklessly as others since the unlock and don’t deserve to get infected on their account and might I add, selfishness. 5. Laughing Off The Seriousness Of The Pandemic © Pexels While optimism is surely a virtue, its charms pale when combined with ignorance. Simply put, more and more people seem to think that the coronavirus is no big deal because only 2 out of 10 people have a serious case of COVID-19 infection, while all the others get mildly sick. But what also needs to be realised is that a vast majority of the population doesn’t quite get sick at all and remain asymptomatic. That’s a dangerous lot to place against older folks, sick people or those with other health issues and comorbidities which make them more susceptible to catching the virus than so many others you know. By laughing off the gravity of the situation, not only are people jeopardising their own safety but also exposing others to senseless suffering or worse an untimely death. The COVID-19 situation shall continue to be serious so long as there is even a single active coronavirus case and India’s lack of health infrastructure and medical aid is only going to make things worse. So you do not want to add to that woe by turning yourself into a super-spreader without even knowing it. Do your bit to help defeat this virus, don’t become one! Stay home and stay safe.

  12. 2020 has made us witness a number of things for the very first time. From an entire nation clapping for the corona warriors to wild animals roaming city streets, we have seen it all. But apart from all this, we have also witnessed one more thing that is worth a mention here, given that a majority of the Indian population feels very passionately about it - entertainment, entertainment and entertainment. This year, we saw a number of big budget, multi-starrer and big banner films releasing on OTT platforms, owing to the coronavirus lockdown and movie theatres being out of bounds. However, despite being a new trend, most movies that were released on digital platforms amid the lockdown were well accepted and appreciated too! As told by Shailesh Kapoor, CEO, Ormax Media to Mid Day, these are the top 5 movies on OTT platforms based on their social media popularity and reach. In order of popularity: 1. Dil Bechara © Fox Star Studios Sushant Singh Rajput fans rejoice because you’ve done it! With your dedication and massive support, SSR’s last movie Dil Bechara is number one on the popularity list when it comes to being the most successful lockdown film that has been released digitally in 2020. 2. Gulabo Sitabo © Rising Sun Films Next up, this super fun and paisa-vasool Shoojit Sircar creation starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana. Gulabo Sitabo is all kinds of entertainment and more. This family dramedy brings in a different flavour of nostalgia and attachment that you can’t help but appreciate. 3. Extraction © Netflix While Chris Hemsworth totally floored his fans as Black Ops mercenary Tyler Rake in this action flick, Rudhraksh Jaiswal was equally impressive as Ovi. The action scenes are mind-blowing and superbly executed, although you may hear mixed reviews for the plot and screenplay. But we’d suggest, don’t go by what others have to say and check it out for yourself. 4. Shakuntala Devi © Sony Pictures A biopic based on the life of “Human Computer” late Shakuntala Devi, people loved Vidya Balan in the titular role. From rallying the story of a brilliant mind and lover of mathematics-turned-author, to presenting a less than usual mother-daughter relationship this film beautifully captured the life and journey of Shakuntala Devi and it’s most definitely worth a watch. 5.

  13. Ireland as a cricketing nation might still be finding its feet on the international circuit, but Kevin O'Brien needs no introduction when it comes to blistering batting displays. A vital cog in the Irish batting unit, the right-handed batsman has established himself as one of the cleanest strikers of the ball in international cricket. The 36-year-old wrote his name into Irish cricketing lore with a 50-ball hundred that left England red-faced at Bangalore during the 2011 World Cup. In 2018, he became Ireland's first batsman to score a hundred in Test cricket following his ton against Pakistan in Dublin. More recently, he played a key role in Ireland's successful chase of 328 runs against England in the 3rd ODI at The Rose Bowl. View the full article

  16. As someone who hasn’t had the time to maintain an elaborate beauty routine, experiencing issues like hair loss, dandruff and premature ageing of the skin is common. At this point, you’re probably hoping for an all-in-one saviour to step in. So say hello to your grooming heroes - cold-pressed oils. Their nourishing properties promote hair growth and youthful skin. They are even better for sensitive skin that requires constant care. The benefits of cold-pressed oils don’t end here. So many wellness brands are proudly launching these oils to accent salad dressings and improve cooking style since they were pronounced as a healthy alternative to refined oils. You must have also seen your favourite influencer speak about them on the Gram or noticed one of them in your friend’s wardrobe but the question is, what makes cold-pressed oils so fame-worthy. Let us tell you all about the magic in these potions! The concept of cold-pressed oils isn’t new but the term has recently taken over both wellness and beauty industries by storm. What is Cold-Pressed Oil?The oils that we use for our hair and skin and for cooking are extracted by heating seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables. During this process, they lose their nutrients. Cold pressing is a method where this oil is extracted by applying pressure without the use of heat. This protects the quality, taste and nutritional value of oil. So while using cold-pressed oil for cooking, for skincare or haircare, rest assured that you’re reaping the most benefits, the natural way. Cold-Pressed Oil Vs Refined OilCold-pressed oils are free from chemicals, are packed with all essential nutrients including antioxidants, protein and lecithin, an essential fat for body cells that soothes and moisturises the skin. Most refined oils, even the ones that are advertised around the concept of weight loss, are packed with chemicals. They are highly-processed through extreme heat and seldom have any nutrients.

  17. There’s no denying that loafers are one of the most versatile shoes for men, but one can often get confused about whether they should wear loafers with their formals or casuals. If this sounds like a familiar dilemma to you, then read on as we settle the formal vs casual loafers dispute once and for all. What’s The Difference?Loafers started as casual shoes, and over the years have become more stylish and well designed, and have been accepted into the formal shoe world as well. You can pair them with literally anything in your wardrobe. But that’s not all, they can elevate your casual looks too and also goes perfectly with your formals. Because of their versatile nature, it is unfair to put loafer under a particular category (casual or formal). Nonetheless, here’s a simple classification. Most loafers come in leather or suede upper. The leather loafers are mostly considered formal because of their sophisticated built and looks. The suede loafers exude a more casual or outdoorsy vibe. Let’s get into the details of each of the six types of loafers for men. Pump LoafersThese loafers are strictly formal and should be worn with a tuxedo or formal black suit. They feature a black shiny upper and a low-cut design. Perfect for weddings or strict formal affairs. Definitely not for everyday wear. __ECOMPRODUCT__444__ Horsebit LoafersUnlike pump loafers for men that can only be worn with a tux or black suit, Horsebit loafers can be paired with any type of formal wear. These loafers are considered more dressy than the rest, however, they can also be teamed with semi-formals and smart casuals. __ECOMPRODUCT__445__ Penny LoafersSome fashion gurus might not agree on penny loafers falling after Horsebit loafers on the formality scale, however, we believe that it depends on the material you choose. The leather ones definitely exude a formal demeanor, but suede loafers which are quite the style demand these days have more of a casual vibe. __ECOMPRODUCT__446__ Belgian LoafersOriginally, Belgian loafers were made for indoor use as slippers. But after the makeover into a dressy alternative, Belgian loafers can now elevate your casual outfits and make the perfect pair to your formals. These loafers come in premium soft-sole which makes it an ideal choice for everyday wear. __ECOMPRODUCT__447__ Tassel LoafersTassel loafers may fall at the end of the spectrum, but they are the most versatile of all. It might not be a wise choice for a black-tie event, but you can pair them with casuals, semi-formals and everything in-between. __ECOMPRODUCT__448__ Slipper LoafersSlipper loafers are closest to the original incarnation of loafers. After their makeover from casual to formal, they were considered strictly formal and worn with suits and tuxedos. However, the fad faded quickly. Now slipper loafers are seen with mostly chinos and shorts. These loafers feature suede or velvet upper which makes them casual in appearance. __ECOMPRODUCT__449__ BottomlineLoafers for men are growing in popularity and there are many designs and variations available now. And we can’t say enough that they are the most versatile shoes out there. Formal or casual, loafers can give a classy and stylish touch to your look. However, while thinking formals it wise to go for leather loafers for men. For casuals, you can experiment with any style, design, or pattern according to your mood and fancy.

  18. Since life at home is slowly turning into a drab-trap that we all want out of but can’t find the exit to, there’s always that possibility of finding something interesting in the virtual world. Now, with not only web shows, but also, mainstream Bollywood movies vying for our attention online, the OTT platform appears to be promising more sing now than ever. Yet, in our quest to “keep up” with the pop culture biggies, we often tend to miss out on equally good content that isn't hyped up as much but happens to be well-made and deserving of our time and audience. Here are 5 such crime drama series on the web that more people need to check out, because these are goooood: 1. Apharan © AltBalaji If Gangs of Wasseypur and Sacred Games happen to be on your ‘good stuff’ list, we promise you will love this one. Right from the plot, to the screenplay and direction, Apharan checks all the boxes when it comes to convincing crime series. The touch of suspense and a good dose of action only make this show pack a punch. This Arunoday Singh-Mahie Gill starrer is worth your time. 2. Asur © Voot It seems like not enough people are talking about this crime thriller that tackles serial killings through the lens of mythology and religion. The plot is gripping and the lead pair comprising Arshad Warsi and Barun Sobti, put on a convincing show. Its crisp narrative style and riveting script will keep you hooked, although the loose ends here and there make for an added layer of personalisation. 3. Bhaukaal © MxPlayer This one has Mohit Raina and Abhimanyu Singh in leading roles but that isn’t the only thing that makes this show worth your while. Based on the life of IPS officer Navneet Sikera, this series offers a fresh perspective on how ugly crime and terror can get when left unchecked by those who are tasked with maintaining order. Gritty, loud and with a lot of punches thrown in the mix, get ready to feel strongly about the story and the main characters on the show. 4. Rangbaaz © Zee5 Another show based on Gorakhpur gangster Shri Prakash Shukla, Rangbaaz offers an unadulterated take on this man’s life. With names like Tigmanshu Dhulia, Ranvir Shorey and Ravi Kishan backing the show beside Saqib Saleem, watch this one for its great cast, gripping storyline that’s shrouded in politics, crime and real drama. 5. Ek Thi Begum © MxPlayer This show will leave a mark given how craftily the story of Sapna, or should we say, Ashraf who is the real inspiration behind this show, is shown. In real life, Ashraf’s gangster husband Mehmood was killed by Dawood Ibrahim in 1986 and Anuja Sathe pulls off Ashraf’s vengeful act to perfection in the show. Chinmay Mandlekar is equally good as is the fascinating plot and the thrill of revenge and passion. Do you want to recommend any other shows for this list? Let us know in the comments section.

  19. There's already a lot of hype for Sony's upcoming PlayStation 5 console. But it looks like Sony just likes to keep teasing us with new PlayStation 5 content. This time, we're looking PS5's first ad. So, the ad itself is incredible. Here, check it out before we talk about it - First of all, it's worth pointing out that it's a live-action video instead of any gameplay material. Honestly, we're not surprised because live-action ads have always been Sony's thing. But there's just no denying that it always leaves us wanting more. Sony has been very quiet about its upcoming console, especially its release date and pricing. We were expecting to see at least one of those in the ad but all we got was an ad that was primarily focused on haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and 3D audio. That being said, it's a really cool ad that makes us more excited about the console. In fact, a lot of fans are now just waiting for Sony to reveal the price and get it over with. via GIPHY We'd have loved to see a video montage showing gameplays of the games that were announced earlier during the console showcase. Well, it looks like we'll have to wait, as always. Here's how people are reacting to the ad: Xbox fans are straight-up getting trolled. Xbox fans rn pic.twitter.com/Rn6McNwpDt — Shan (@Shann_we) August 20, 2020Please tell us the price already. pic.twitter.com/NOpVXKrXrL — Mohamed Enieb (@its_menieb) August 20, 2020 Did anybody say backwards compatibility? Xbox fans rn pic.twitter.com/Rn6McNwpDt — Shan (@Shann_we) August 20, 2020 It's been 200 years!

We’ve got a ad but no release date or price. pic.twitter.com/8aJtt0H2Tf — Louie (@Louie_Rock) August 20, 2020We'll keep an eye on PlayStation's official channels for any kind of announcement, so stay tuned. For now, though, it looks like we still to wait quite a bit before we get any concrete info. Until then, let's just enjoy these ads and hope for good pricing. View the full article
  20. There are all sorts of people across the globe and while most of us want someone who loves us completely. There are a few people who’d look for something opposite. Recently, in another bizarre incident, a woman from Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal district has decided to divorce her husband due to something unbelievable. Try to make some guesses? This woman was unhappy because her husband loves her too much and doesn’t fight with her at all. How will she pass her time if she won’t have anything to fight about? Just imagine her struggle! © Unsplash So, this woman approached the Sharia court for divorce just after eighteen months of her marriage. The Sharia court cleric was confused and couldn’t understand the woman’s ‘predicament’ and the cleric later had to reject her plea. He also called her plea frivolous. According to reports, after her plea was rejected by the cleric of the Sharia court, she reached the local panchayat to ask for justice. In the plea to the Sharia court, she expressed how she couldn’t digest her husband’s love. She said, “Neither he (husband) ever shouted at me nor he ever disappointed me over any issue. I am feeling suffocated in such an environment. Sometimes he cooks for me and also helps me in performing household chores." © Unsplash The woman said that she had never fought with her husband and said, "Whenever I make a mistake, he always forgives me for that. I wanted to argue with him. I do not need a life where the husband agrees to anything." When she was asked if there was anything else that she was seeking a divorce, she responded by saying, ‘no’. © Unsplash However, the woman’s husband said that he just wants to keep his wife happy and so the Sharia court requested the couple to sort out the matter mutually. This just wants to make us scream ‘Pyaar tune kya kiya’! View the full article
  21. Have you found yourself sitting in front of your TV or laptop, indecisively scrolling on Netflix figuring out what to watch? Well, you are not alone and it looks like Netflix wants to help. The video streaming service is currently testing a new feature that'll help you, well, find some content to watch. That's right. Netflix is testing a new 'Shuffle Play' button, with which it hopes to help people watch something instead of just scrolling through the content and pass out. © Netflix Some users have reported that they're seeing this new 'Shuffle Play' button on their account. It seems to be appearing on Netflix TV app's user profile screen, right beneath their display image and name. It's also showing up in the left-side menu bar for some users inside their profile. OMG i just realized Netflix added a "play something" feature DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG I'VE WAITED FOR THIS — syd • oh.. wow.. sports • (@sydtheshipper) August 12, 2020 It's not called Shuffle Play, though. Netflix is planning to call it the 'Play Something' button, which seems appropriate. We think it's a great addition to the pool of features that Netflix has added over the years to make our experience better on the platform. Obviously, letting Netflix decide what to watch will not yield the best results but, at least, you won't blame yourself or your friends for recommending a bad show or a movie. It's on the algorithm. But in all honestly, the algorithm probably knows you better than your friends, when it comes to what you like to watch, so there's a good chance that it'll play something that you like. There’s a new Netflix feature called Shuffle Play that picks a show for you and starts it. I’m on show 15 that I immediately stopped and my night looks to be seeing what the Netflix gods will pick next. — MBJet (@mbjet) August 18, 2020 This feature isn't available for all. You may or may not see this particular feature on your profile. But we really hope they finish testing it and push it for all because it's definitely going to come in handy. View the full article
  22. I think we can agree that remakes are not required, like ever. Especially when you're making a Hindi version of an already hit show. Why can't people just watch the original instead of whatever discount version is being made here? The conversation about these poorly made remakes was kind of reignited by the Indian Friends going viral last week, so I thought it would be nice to list out a few more shows that have been copied, or 'inspired', by other shows. 1. Hello Friends © Twitter Inspired by Friends. Of course, I have to start with this since Hello Friends is the most offensive out of all of them. It's obviously not surprising that 'sasta' Friends ran for only 26, painful might I add, episodes while the superior version lasted 10 seasons. Just watching it for five minutes will show that. Originality level - less than zero, they literally copied every plot point. 2. Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani © Star One Inspired by Twilight. Twilight tried to make Vampires cool, but the glittery monsters were mocked to no end, of course. But, with such a huge impact, be it negative, that the entire series had, it's understandable why Ekta Kapoor went 'I want some of that'. But, with so much saas-bahu going on on TV, a desi vampire romance seemed way too out of place, tbh. 3. Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi © Sony Inspired by the Colombian show Yo soy Betty, la fea, which was also the inspiration for Ugly Betty. I'm pretty sure this was the least offensive remake as, if I'm recalling correctly, a lot of people enjoyed the show quite a bit and it was a huge success with Mona Singh getting a lot of praise for her portrayal of the titular character. 4. Yudh © Sony Inspired by Boss. I was today years old when I learned that Amitabh Bachchan starred in a miniseries a few years ago. And, I was also today years old when I learned that it was apparently inspired by American drama Boss. In Yudh, Big B plays a big businessman who develops an incurable disease, while in Boss, the protagonist, played by Kelsey Grammar, is the Mayor of Chicago, who gets diagnosed with an incurable disease. 5. Powder © Sony Inspired by The Wire. Both are crime thrillers, but only one received wide-spread critical acclaim and ran for five seasons. Any guesses? Of course, the answer is The Wire. Apparently, Powder was praised for its storytelling and execution, but it never got the viewership it needed. I feel like if it was released today on an OTT platform, it would actually be popular.

  23. As soon as the anti-China movement began to see some interest in India, there were some rumours about the arrival of Micromax. Well, now, it looks like the brand really wants to make a comeback in the country, as they have teased the arrival of a new phone on their Twitter handle. The company is going all-in on the anti-China movement. They're stressing on the 'Aatmanirbhar' initiative that was introduced by our PM Narendra Modi that calls for local manufacturing and boost the 'Make In India' initiative. Here, check out the teaser - 73 years of independence or being in dependence? On our 74th Independence Day, let's stop being doosron pe nirbhar and become truly Atmanirbhar. Are you ready to join the revolution with us?#AtmaNirbharBharat #JoinTheRevolution #IndependenceDay #स्वतंत्रतादिवस pic.twitter.com/7O5Y8JrbAM — Micromax India (@Micromax__India) August 15, 2020 As you can see, Micromax is clearly hyping up its arrival to make it look like a huge comeback. Well, only time will tell what they have in store for us. As of now, we don't have any confirmation on a launch or any details about the phone that they're planning to launch. But if the rumours are something to go by, then it looks like we'll be getting some budget phones from the brand, especially targeting the Rs 10,000 price segment. © Reuters With all that being said, we really hope Micromax is not planning on selling any rebranded Chinese phones. We say that because Micromax has been caught doing that in the past and that's part of the reason why the company stopped doing business in India. Right now, Chinese makers like Xiaomi, Realme, etc are still on the top when it comes to the overall smartphone sales in the country. Samsung is also doing great but there aren't a lot of options when it comes to 'Made In India' phones. If Micromax manages to do something big here with their new phones, then we might truly have a winner here on our hands. View the full article
