  1. Just like your girlfriend's night skincare routine or the makeup kit that she carries around, you too need a grooming kit in place. Why do you ask? If you do not take care of your skin and your hair or your beard, you'll definitely be adding years to your face. Also if you're out in the dating game, not taking care of yourself is not attractive at all. So, here are 4 super essential grooming products (apart from the basic face wash and moisturizer) that you should add to your grooming kit: 1. An Essential Oil © Getty Images An essential oil, be it tea tree or lavender, or even any other natural ingredient that you like, can help you in countless ways. Firstly, they help tackle dryness, they also help to get you to sleep at night in case you have trouble doing so. They also reduce puffiness and signs of ageing. 2. An Under Eye Cream © Amazon An under-eye cream is a boon for racoon eyes and post-hangover cleanup. If you are awake from partying all night, use this so that your boss does not find out. In fact, they are a more permanent solution to dark eye circles. 3. A Face Mist © Amazon Another hangover remedy, a face mist helps freshen up your face and tackles all the dryness and tiredness from the night before. Just steal one from your girlfriend's kit and you'll never want to return it. 4. A Roll-On Deo © Getty Images In case you have a long day ahead of you, you need a roll-on to quickly stroke your pits with for a refreshing fragrance that doesn't turn off women.
  2. If you're prepping for the big date that you've been looking forward to for a very long time, it'll be very unfortunate if you blow it off with your own silly mistakes. So, here's a guide for you so that you don't make any disastrous mistakes that'll probably turn the other person off. Apart from a lot of things that could go wrong fashion-wise, there are also certain grooming mistakes that you're likely to make. Here is a checklist to avoid these mistakes: 1. Bad Breath This tops the list of things you might forget to check before you step out. Before the big date, you could either take a look at these steps or pop a few mints to make sure your mouth doesn't reek of anything bad. It's important to have clean white teeth too. If you think your teeth have started to turn yellow, it's better to book a dentist appointment and get the routine cleaning done beforehand. 2. Body Odour View this post on Instagram A post shared by Tiger Shroff (@tigerjackieshroff) on Jan 3, 2019 at 10:55pm PST If you have a date at the end of a long working day, it doesn't hurt to freshen your pits with a dash of deodorant or a roll on, so that you can raise your hands freely like Tiger Shroff. 3. Unkempt Hands © Instagram One of the many things that your date will notice about you is the way you keep your hands. If they look like the picture above, she will be disturbed by it even if she doesn't show it. Think about it this way, if you spot dirty nails you would be equally grossed out too, right? It works both ways. 4. Unkempt Beard & Hair © Instagram If your hair and beard are dishevelled and you look like you just got out of bed for a date, probably because you want to send out a message that you want to keep things casual by being casual, it's a bad move pal. This won't get you a second date in the very least. Get a salon appointment before you go for your date and make sure your final look is clean and polished. This will definitely get you brownie points, trust us. 5. Not Making An Effort © Instagram Remember, the Beyonce-Ed Sheeran concert? It was outrageous for Ed Sheeran given the sheer contrast in his and Beyonce's get ups. She wore an elaborate gown and he turned up in jeans! The idea is not to go over the top with your efforts. However, keeping in mind where your date is set, you certainly can make some quality effort that goes on to show that you care, which will most certainly be appreciated by your date.
  3. We're sure that so far you've got your grooming basics right and you're most probably washing your face at least once a day and using a moisturizer (if you're not, you should definitely read this). But apart from that, there is one essential grooming product that men fail to add to their grooming kit that can change their skins for good. A BB Cream. © Getty Images South Korean beauty and grooming secrets are a treasure and should be adapted because have you seen these guys age? They never do. A BB Cream, a South Korean discovery is that one product you should definitely have in your grooming kit. BB creams also known as blemish balms aim to blur out imperfections whilst also taking care of pigmentation, oil control and hydrating skin simultaneously. It also gives the benefit of sun protection, oil control and an anti-ageing in one cream. © Getty Images It's also an easy remedy to cover scars, blemishes and skin discolouration like an Instagram filter, except this work in IRL being a product squished inside a tube. © Getty Images They might look like it's a feminine product, but they also come in unisex packaging. Use a BB cream next time before a big date to hide the bugging pimples, scars and blemishes. It really makes a difference.
  4. Regardless of what 'Game of Thrones' might have you believe, winters are actually coming to an end. And with summers right around the corner, the one fashion staple that all Indian men should be thinking about investing in are T-shirts. After all, not only are t-shirts the go-to choice of attire for Indian men during the scorching summer heat (owing to just how comfortable and breezy they tend to be), but they also require the least amount of effort to pull off. The fact that you can also use them to layer up your other outfits only ends up being an added bonus. And so for those of you out there planning on upgrading your summer wardrobe, here are five tips you absolutely should be adhering to before purchasing your next tee, so as to make sure that you are only rocking the best t-shirts for men out there, and nothing else. 1. Invest In Solid Colours © Official Instagram/Kartik Aaryan Sometimes, it's best to stick to basics. While printed t-shirts (especially floral, monochrome and abstract prints) are becoming quite popular, they will never prove to be as useful to you as their solid coloured counterparts. After all, putting on a solid tee with a pair of trousers or washed jeans personifies that golden fashion rule 'less is more!' Another benefit of investing in solid colours? You get unlimited options to layer up your outfits. After all, if your wardrobe comes equipped with the best white t-shirts for men, or the best black t-shirts for men out there, you've pretty much stocked your wardrobe with the staples needed to create different looks. 2. Make Sure They Are Made Of The Right Fabric © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal When it comes to the t-shirts you are planning on wearing, you cannot afford to ignore their fabric composition. After all, since you'll be mostly wearing them during the summers, you cannot afford to opt for fabrics that won't be comfortable to wear. This is where opting for t-shirts that are made from Supima cotton makes for a great choice. Besides being twice as softer than regular cotton t-shirts (which takes care of your comfort), Supima cotton t-shirts are also up to FOUR TIMES stronger than their regular counterparts, which effectively makes them more durable and resistant to wear-and-tear. 3. Don't Forget About The Fit © Official Instagram/Varun Dhawan While the absolute best way of ensuring you get a tee that fits you to a T (pun not intended!) is to have it be custom-made, that's neither a practical nor an affordable option. As such, paying attention to your T-shirt's fit is highly advisable. A lot of this also depends on the type of body you harbour. For instance, if you have a bulky and well-defined physique, then opting for a tight fitting tee that will help accentuate your body makes sense. If you happen to be more on the skinny side, then going for a loose fitting tee is more advisable. 4. Stick To Your Budget © Pexels Being fashion-forward, not compromising on your comfort and sticking to your budget are not mutually exclusive events. In fact, you don't have to go over your budget just to stock up on some quality and premium t-shirts. Fortunately, there are quite a few brands out there, all of which curate t-shirts of a premium build, that also happen to be affordable and cost-effective. 5. Look At The Bigger Picture © Official Instagram/Ranveer Singh Buying a t-shirt in isolation makes for a rookie fashion mistake that an alarmingly large number of Indian men tend to commit. The T-shirt you purchase should not be looked at in isolation. You need to be looking at the bigger picture as well, including the clothes you will be layering up your tee with, the accessories you are going to be rocking (wrist watches, caps, sunglasses), and the type of body you harbour.
  5. The Samsung Galaxy S10 launch is scheduled for February 20th 2019 and we pretty much know everything about the phone right now. There have been numerous CAD leaks, along with reports on the alleged specifications. But thanks to MKBHD, we're getting a first-hand look at a dummy S10 model that is used by the case or cover makers to closely work with. There are going to be three variants of the S10 this year, the flagship S10, the S10+, and a slightly cheaper S10e. Samsung has been launching two variants of the S-series flagship for quite some time, and now the company wants to lure buyers with a slightly cheaper option that carries flagship enough feature, at a lighter price. Considering the success of the iPhone XR, the S10e seems to be a safe bet right now. We hope it won't cannibalise sales of the elder sibling, just like the cheaper iPhone did. The S10 will have a 6.1-inch display with a 3500mAh battery, while the S10+ shall sport a 6.44-inch display with a 4000mAh battery. The S10e is reported to have a slightly smaller 5.8-inch screen, and maybe even a smaller battery. © YouTube/MKBHD The phone has a signature Samsung design, consisting of metal and glass. The glass back is obviously a fingerprint magnet, and the front is strikingly similar to the previous iterations. The bezels are ultra slim, and the chin has been slightly cut down as well. On the left is a secondary utility button, basically a dedicated button for Bixby smart assistant. The first thing you'll notice about the S10 and S10+ is its camera array. Both sport triple lens setup on the rear, while the S10 has a single front camera. The S10+ gets a dual camera setup on the front, and all the front sensors are housed in a punch-hole design. We've already seen this technology in action with the A8s, and Samsung likes to call it the Infinity-O display. © YouTube/MKBHD The physical fingerprint sensor is no-where to be seen and we're assuming it'll be now located under the display. We've already seen this technology in action with the multiple phones like the Vivo NEX and OnePlus 6T. Lastly, the headphone jack is located on the bottom, and Samsung isn't yet forcing us to move on. This shall be the 10th anniversary of the S-series smartphones, and to make things even more interesting, Samsung could launch an S10+ variant with 1TB of internal storage. However, these are just pre-launch rumours and reports, and we'd ask you to take 'em with a pinch of salt since the final product could definitely vary.
  6. Over the years, the Indian cricket team has seen numerous sides of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. His leadership skills saw Team India scaling new heights in international cricket. His batting prowess earned him the reputation of world's best finisher. His unorthodox wicket-keeping skills made him a nemesis for opposition batsmen from behind the stumps. Whenever the former Indian captain features for his side and comes out on the field, everyone, from commentators, pundits to fans, knows that something spectacular is just around the corner. If he misses out in one of the facets of the game, Dhoni makes sure he makes up for it in another. Such has been this man's reputation in the Indian team that his know-how of the game has allowed him to still take calls on the field (from DRS to placing the fielders) despite stepping down as captain. Dhoni's presence of mind was once again in full display during India's clash against New Zealand in the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Westpac stadium in Wellington. Returning to the side after missing the fourth ODI, Dhoni was expected to bolster the middle-order in crisis situation - a new role where he has thrived lately. AP But, contrary to popular perception, Dhoni was bowled for a mere one run by Trent Boult's ripper of a delivery. While Dhoni couldn't do much with the willow, as Ambati Rayudu (90), Vijay Shankar (45) and Hardik Pandya (45) stepped up for India, the Jharkhand cricketer made up for it with his own unique way of wicket-keeping. It was the 37th over of the New Zealand's run-chase when James Neesham (44) went for a sweep shot and missed the line of Kedar Jadhav's loopy delivery. Hitting the pads, the ball tricked down the leg-side as Dhoni let out a loud appeal (for an LBW) which was soon backed by his teammates. Cleaver run-out of James Neesham by MS Dhoni is the turning point of game. What a great "Presence of Mind"! ð This is why we call #MSDhoni the X-factor of #TeamIndia. Congrats for 4-1 series victory. Mohammed Shami is the best bowler for India ð pic.twitter.com/2BuiDYmlbh — ARMAN ارÙا٠â®ï¸ (@arman_armu_) February 3, 2019 Watching the Indian cricketers engrossed in appealing, Neesham tried to capitalise by sneaking in a quick single. But, just as the left-hander got out of his crease, Dhoni with a quick reflex, picked the ball and fired it on the stumps. Referred to the third umpire, replays suggested that Dhoni caught Neesham out of the crease when the bails were dislodged. As soon as the decision was revealed on the big screen, Dhoni was congratulated by his teammates for his presence of mind. Later, his insane exploits in effecting Neesham's dismissal got the social media buzzing with cricket fans lauding the former Indian skipper for quick thinking. Never leave your crease with MS Dhoni behind the stumps! https://t.co/RoUp4iMpX6 — ICC (@ICC) February 3, 2019 That Run out by MS Dhoni!#TeamIndia #NZvIND pic.twitter.com/E4Vbn1KwhK — RVCJ Media (@RVCJ_FB) February 3, 2019 â ⬠â â¡ #MSDhoni ⬠â ⬠â No matter which direction the batsman may go, @msdhoni will find him, and run him out! ð#NZvIND — Star Sports (@StarSportsIndia) February 3, 2019 Ms dhoni 10years challenge ð¥ð#Dhoni #MSDhoni #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/FLPOcPFqEc — Lachu (@Msdlachu) February 3, 2019 Is Race ka Sabse Bada SIKANDAR Ms Dhoni....ð©ð#Dhoni You Are A Love #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/MI33MG9LuH — Manya Kaka (@KakaManya) February 3, 2019 Lightning speed of Dhoni behind the stumpsð — Gaurav Kumar (@gauravalmora) February 3, 2019
  7. Imagine landing a date with the woman of your dreams after you've slogged your a** off, and then you go and blow it by making the worst first impression ever. Sounds like a nightmare, right? Well, to ensure you don't send your date screaming for the hills with your disastrous fashion choices, here's a list of mistakes to avoid making on your date with her: 1. Wearing Your Gym Clothes © shutterstock Your gym clothes belong to the gym and not outside of it. Please don't make the mistake of wearing your gym clothes to a date night. Your date would've probably put a decent amount of effort into their appearance and you should be reciprocating that effort. There is also the slight possibility that your gym clothes might reek of sweat, the kind that repulses people instead of attracting them. 2. Buttoned Down Shirt © artofmanliness Showing your chest hairy/ bare chest is also not a great idea. You don't want to expose your chest to the other person when she's not even consented to it. Besides, you don't want to give away too much too soon. 3. Socks With Sandals © fashionbeans Socks with sandals is another fashion choice that is disastrous. Shoes and bad breath are the two major things a woman notices about you. Shoes and socks are one combination that just won't work. 4. Jeans With The Zipper Open © monogramsigns I know, I know this seems like a really obvious one. But jeans with the zipper open is a mistake that unknowingly happens to all of us one time or the other. For the date, however, make a conscious effort to not let this happen. 5. Wearing Lame Slogans And Logos © artofmanliness Monograms might be back in fashion, however, for a date night and first impressions, they end up being a little lame. You don't want to shout out a brand's name or a funny slogan because you're much more than that. Instead, let your mouth do the talking.
  8. Yesterday, a FaceTime bug that would let users eavesdrop on call recipients went viral for all the wrong reasons and since then the company has disabled the feature for the time being. What people don't know is how the bug was discovered in the first place. Now you can answer for yourself on FaceTime even if they don't answerð¤#Apple explain this.. pic.twitter.com/gr8llRKZxJ — Benji Mobb™ (@BmManski) January 28, 2019 A teenager discovered the bug when he was trying to organise his friends to play the popular battle royale game 'Fortnite'. Grant Thompson, a 14-year-old high school student managed to discover the bug accidentally and has now become the hot topic of discussion. After already being in a call with his friend, Thompson tried to add another friend to the same call and discovered that he could hear his friend even though the phone call was unanswered. © Apple “We were pretty shocked at first because it was still ringing on his phone,” he told NBC News on Tuesday. “After that, we tested it for about half an hour to see if it worked every time.” My teen found a major security flaw in Apple's new iOS. He can listen in to your iPhone/iPad without your approval. I have video. Submitted bug report to @AppleSupport...waiting to hear back to provide details. Scary stuff! #apple #bugreport @foxnews — MGT7 (@MGT7500) January 21, 2019 Since the discovery, the teenager and his mother tried to alert Apple of the problem but did not get noticed by the company. The mother even tried to use a law firm's letterhead in a letter to get Apple's attention. When those efforts were met with no response, they then turned to the Apple bounty program where users are paid to find bugs in iOS. However, that didn't work out either as it required them to be registered as a developer and have the technical knowledge to file the bug report. Finally, they made a YouTube video which was later picked up by media outlets and went viral. Source: NBC News
  9. A serious bug in Apple's FaceTime application lets users listen in on the people they're calling, even when they don't pick up the phone. It was previously reported on Twitter by user Benji Mobb and it's a severe violation of privacy. All you need to do is call someone via FaceTime and listen to their phone's microphone, without consent. Apple says it is aware of the issue and a fix will be released via a software update in the coming week. Multiple publications can confirm that the issue actually works. © AppleInsider The glitch is very easily triggered when you call someone using FaceTime. Before they pick up the call, add your own number to the call and once you're added, the application immediately assumes it to be a conference call and begins relaying the audio from the other phone. Irrespective of whether the end party has picked up the call or not, the audio gets transferred. For the end user, if you're receiving a call from FaceTime, there is a chance the caller can hear you via the microphone. If the recipient of the call presses the power button on the side of the iPhone to silence or ignore an incoming call, their phone will begin broadcasting video to the initial caller. Now you can answer for yourself on FaceTime even if they don't answerð¤#Apple explain this.. pic.twitter.com/gr8llRKZxJ — Benji Mobb™ (@BmManski) January 28, 2019 The only way to stop this from happening right now is to disable FaceTime on all your Apple devices. On the iPhone, go the Settings app and select FaceTime. Tap the toggle and switch it to grey. FaceTime will no longer be active on the device. On the Mac, open the FaceTime app, select "FaceTime" in the menu bar and click on "Turn off FaceTime". © Twitter / Chris Velazco With rising privacy concerns worldwide, these severe glitches in a core application like FaceTime are extremely worrisome. For a long time, Apple has been talking about privacy on its devices and how they are different from others. They even put up a huge billboard outside CES 2019, taking a dig at Google, Amazon, and other data utilizing companies. The banner read "What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone", and today's discovery completely nullifies their claim. There isn't much we can do right now, but wait for Apple to release a fix. Until then, be careful when you receive a call via FaceTime. Source: Twitter
  10. An interview is an essential process and the first step towards getting a dream job. While prepping answers and getting the company's history that you're interviewing for is the most important aspect of the interview prep, your physical presentation also matters. The first impression to the interviewer is how you look. There is an unspoken rule book of things that you should never wear to an interview. But besides that, there are certain general common mistakes that people tend to make before going for interviews. For example: 1. Not Planning Your Interview Outfit You might spend all your time in interview prep and not give a single passing thought to the outfit that you're going to wear. That's a big problem. What if your pants don't fit you right anymore? What if the shirt that you usually wear has an ink stain on it? What if the tie doesn't go with the outfit and stands out but in a bad way? Too many whats and ifs. However, if you plan your outfit before hand, it saves you from last minute anxiety and otherwise easily preventable disasters. 2. Not Ironing Your Outfits Even if you're sorted with the exact details of the outfit in your head, it doesn't mean your job is over. Hey, you need to to take that outfit out and iron it to perfection. Make sure you get that middle crease with the pants. Also, hang your clothes and put them away in a corner so that all that hard work doesn't go waste. 3. Not Getting A Fresh Shave And A Haircut You need to get a formal beard that is sharply cut and a presentable hairstyle for your interview. You don't want the interviewer to think you're going to lounge around in the office once you get the job (even if that is exactly what you plan to do) © allstyles 4. Not Wearing The Right Kind Of Shoes You can't wear open toe-d shoes or sneakers to an interview. An office's environment might allow you to make these changes later to your outfit. However, for the interview it's best to keep it formal because you don't know the mindset of the interviewer. © farfetch 5. Not Polishing Your Shoes Even if you have the right kind of shoes, not polishing them is a huge eye-brow raiser. If you have everything else going right for you, don't forget to polish your shoes. 6. Not Using A Mouthwash It is very likely that an interview might take place after hours of waiting. You don't want to take the chance and have your mouth stink when you open it in front of the interviewer. Always keep emergency mints and a travel mouthwash bottle with you and use it whenever you feel the need to freshen up. Trust me, it makes all the difference. 7. Not Removing Your Jewellery We're talking lockets, bracelets, rings, studs. You don't want to heavily accessorize before the big day. Feel free to wear these trinkets once you get the job but during an interview, you don't want to let an interviewer's opinion of your metal trinkets affect your career prospects, right?
  11. Lionel Messi has achieved everything there is to achieve on a club-football level. The Barcelona FC star has not only brought his club to the fore on innumerable occasions but also has made a name for himself, in doing so, as arguably the best player in the game in our generation. His greatness at Camp Nou is rock solid and unquestionable. However, the only stain, and a big one at that, on Messi's illustrious career is that of the lack of success on the international level for his country of Argentina. After losing in the Copa America final for four years, the last being in 2016 which also led to him officially retire from the international scenario out of the sheer exasperation, the Argentinian faced his latest disappointment during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia in which his side was eliminated by France, who went on to win the tournament, in the Round of 16. © Reuters The World Cup loss last year left a real scar on Messi who went AWOL on the team and has been on sabbatical ever since. What irks the supporters of Messi's national team is the fact that he showed no interest in returning until the current President of the Argentine Football Association, Claudio Tapia dropped an easter egg of sorts, on the legend's return in the blue and white. While the star himself has not officially made a statement on playing the 2019 Copa America in June but Team Argentina's interim coach, Lionel Scaloni believes that Messi will come out of this self-inflicted banishment in as early as March. "We will speak with Leo in the days before the March list. When the time is right we will speak," Scaloni told the local reporters as reported by The Times Of India. "I hope he can be here but more than that, we want him to be happy. I have a good feeling." Lionel Messi will be touching 32 years of age by the time Copa America commences. That's a lot of miles put on Leo's legs. With age catching up on him like it does to every other athlete, Messi realises that he needs to take care of his body and choose his games carefully.
  12. While finding true love should definitely be your end goal, there are a few things you should set yourself up for, before you go looking for it. Having mighty real expectations is the key to finding the love you truly deserve and if you don't really know what you want to find, having some solid parameters before is quite valid. Because you never know when you may find love and what you may find in terms for love, but keeping some check-ins handy before you meet someone is always helpful. © Eros International In today's day and age, we all need something to keep us grounded and away from unreal expectations from our partners. Because if we come with a set of over-the-top expectations, we're bound to be disappointed at some point in time in life. If we have a summation of realistic expectations that can easily be met by the other person, then we're definitely going to attract a healthy relationship towards us. So, in lieu of the above, here are 3 things you must do, to give up on some unhealthy expectations you may have, to attract a happy and a stable relationship and a love that lasts long: (1) Have A Set Of Priorities By priorities, I mean segregate your expectations. Especially of what you really want from your future partner. Always remember though, high expectations are different from unreal expectations. High expectations as long as are achievable should not be shelved. They're made to fulfil your needs and standards after all. Just make sure that your high expectations aren't unreal. After all, if you're sorted and an established man, you want a woman on the same wavelength and there's nothing wrong with expecting that. © AA Films (2) Set Some Boundaries Always know what you will put up with and what you won't, so you don't take your self-esteem and respect the whole hog when it's not required to. Sometimes, unknowingly, we do things that are far away from our comfort zone and we really don't need to or have to do them. We do them in order to please the other person. While you most certainly can please them, you don't have to put your self-respect at stake for it. Try not to compromise on your core values in a relationship and have a set of boundaries marked down to the T. For instance, if you're averse to infidelity and you face something like that in the future, set a boundary to never normalise it in your head, just because your partner messes up or cheats on you. © Vicom 18 Motion Pictures (3) Lock Down On Your Needs & Wants Having your core values intact and realising what they are is very important before you meet anyone you want to spend the rest of your life with. Work with tangibles in this situation. For example, if you want children, work out your views on marriage and the kind of lifestyle you want to adapt to when you find the right person. It's important you work on what you need and want before you agree to settle down with someone. Having a conversation about the same with your future partner is healthy but that can only happen if you clearly understand what your needs and wants are and you need to know them way before and be certain about them. © Zee Studios The key is not to have everything in common with your future partner. The key is to lock down everything you want to set for yourself so you and she can have a smooth life together, even if you don't have much in common. If you respect each other's choices and live your life the way you want to, you can still make a great couple and have a healthy relationship. For that, these three pointers come in handy and if you do these three things before falling in love, you're definitely sorted for life!
  13. After India's eminently fruitful trip Down Under during which they succeeded in beating Australia on their own turf in a Test series and a bilateral ODI series, for the very first time ever since India began to play the game on an international level, the Men in Blue are all set to show what they are made of, against their neighbours, the Kiwis. In a five-match ODI series against New Zealand, Virat Kohli, the best batsman in the world according to ICC's ODI rankings, will go head to head against NZ's finest, Ross Taylor, ODI ranked 3. It seems like a tremendously exciting matchup to watch as both hitters are looking to find their top form with the 2019 ICC World Cup approaching. With just hours to go for the battle to take place, let's compare what the two batsmen have been to provide to their teams and take them to victory: © Reuters In the 17 ODI matches Virat Kohli has played in between 1st January 2018 and today, he has put up 1,355 runs including a huge 160* innings against South Africa. With the batting average of 112.91, Kohli has been in form throughout the year, getting seven out of his 39 ODI tons during this time. © Reuters Taylor, on the other hand, has played like an elite himself. In the 14 innings between 1st January 2018 and today, the former NZ captain has made 920 runs in total with a batting average of 92.00. His extraordinary 181* knock against England comes to mind when remembering his skill set on the pitch. If we go on the numbers, Virat Kohli, in terms of a supporting cast has a much better side with Rohit Sharma (World Rank 2) and Shikhar Dhawan (World Rank 9) as compared to Taylor's back up in Kane Williamson (World Rank 11) and Martin Guptill (World Rank 14). However, considering the ODI series between India and Australia, it would be safe to say that Guptill and Williamson look a lot more in-sync as compared to Sharma and Dhawan. While India (2) is one rank above NZ (3) in ICC ODI rankings, India's trips down there have not been too positive. Out of the 34 matchups there, India have only been able to win 10 till date with a series sweep back in 2010. The last time the two sides had an ODI series in New Zealand in 2014, India faced a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Kiwis. But with the grand victories in Australia, Kohli's boys seem more confident than ever and are hopeful to have another great series before the World Cup.
  14. It's quite rare to find earphones that offer superb balanced sound quality and offer accurate frequency response at the same time. Most earphones either offer one of the two or often compromise on build quality. However, 1More's triple driver earphones break that myth and offer all of these factors in one package. It's our favourite earphones to use at the moment and there's a good reason for it: nothing comes close to these earphones right now. We used it for casual podcast listening, music and gaming and it performed well in all scenarios apart from a few minor caveats. Here's our review of 1More's Triple Driver earphones: Packaging © MensXP Normally, we don't talk much about the packaging of an earphone as it's quite generic; even for high-end headphones. However, 1More gives you a box that is filled with accessories and overall justifies its premium aura. It comes with a hard faux-leather case for your earphones, a metal shirt clip, an adapter for planes and a set of 10 ear-tips. No other brand in India gives you so many ear-tips that cater to your personal liking. There are three pairs of foam tips and seven silicone tips giving you the freedom to use what suits you best. The box is also shaped and designed as a hard book. It has magnets that keep it closed and the interiors have sketches of the earphones. It's by far the most premium looking packaging we've ever seen and 1More deserves a point just for making that extra effort. Design © 1More 1More is a company that designs all the earphones for Xiaomi. In fact, you will see the same design language in some of Xiaomi's products today. The 1More triple driver has an aluminium shell that is shaped like a cone with an angle. Due to this design choice, it sits perfectly in the ear to give the best sound experience possible. The cable is also made of braided fabric that makes it easier to manage and does not get easily tangled. Overall, the build quality is top notch as it feels quite durable and sturdy. The cables will remain intact even if you use it quite roughly thanks to the braided fabric. The earbuds feel extra comfortable even when we used it for prolonged periods of time. We tested the earphones while gaming and the sheer comfort was able to add a few hours in game time. © MensXP The supplied pouch is also a handy thing to have as it makes it easier to commute with these headphones. You can easily store this headphone in the pouch to protect it from getting damaged in your pocket or bag. The pouch comes most handy when you are travelling on planes as you can store the adapter in the pouch as well. You can use the adapter on planes to watch content and have a far better experience than those lousy headphones you get in the flight. How Does It Sound? © YouTube The 1More Triple driver earphones consist of two armature driver and a dynamic driver in each earbud. These deliver a superior sound experience as the balanced armature drivers can host multiple drivers in a compact body. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the sound from the earphones and this pair also happen to be THX certified. So if you love to watch movies on the go, these earphones will also deliver a surround sound experience. In terms of sound, the 1More Triple Driver earphones deliver a very precise, clear and rich sound. The bass is not too heavy leaving enough room for the mids and highs to be balanced. This combination makes the sound a little less muddy even when you turn up the volume. The slight mid-bass bump also results in a very balanced and warm tone that is quite rare to find on in-ear headphones. Is It Worth It? In India, the 1More Triple Driver earphone costs Rs 7,349 on Amazon and is worth every single rupee. To be honest, these earphones should be priced way higher for what it offers in terms of sound and build quality. It's actually quite hard to think what other earphone sounds betters than the 1More Triple Driver at an unbelievable price like this. It's got luxury level packing, full accessories and a sound that is to die for. If you are serious about your music, just buy these earphones as soon as you can.
  15. Contrary to common belief, man boobs, a.k.a moobs are fairly common. You might feel embarrassed to have them, but you're not alone. There is an end number of reasons as to why you could have man boobs. From having more flesh on the chest because of being overweight, to suffering from a medical condition called gynecomastia, which is an excess amount of breast tissue to the side effect of taking in steroids, or being born with them, to name a few reasons. Ideally, first, you should try to understand why you have them and then possibly set a treatment plan in place to fix it, after consulting a doctor, of course, which would possibly involve medication and minor lifestyle changes. But meanwhile, there are ways to hide it completely if you get a few hacks right in terms of styling your clothes. These can save you from having people discover the two bumps on your chest: 1. A Compression Shirt A snug fitted compression tee is great for your chest area and works as a great base layer for starters. You can even get them with short sleeves for Summer. © Instagram Price: 1,499 Buy it here 2. Thick Fabrics & Layering Layering is a great way to hide uneven bumps, as the different layers of fabrics grab the attention. Try to experiment with different silhouettes, and weaves to get a well put together outfit. This works especially well in the Summer. © Instagram 3. The Fit One tends to choose loose fitted, baggy clothes under the impression that these clothes hide fat. Far from it, baggy clothes exaggerate fat and make it seem even worse. So contrary to instinct, choose clothes that will fit you well. But at the same time, you shouldn't choose clothes that are too tight at the same time. You need to find a middle ground in finding a fit which is neither too tight or too loose. © Instagram 4. Shirts & Fitted Garments Shirts and fitted garments give a better fit than say, t-shirts and light silhouettes. In terms of the structure of the neck, V-necks work better than round necks. Try to add statement pieces like a watch or boots, a necktie. These always help hide the bumps in your outfits created by man boobs. © threadsnetwork 5. Pastels & Whites Are A Huge No These hues enhance the bumpy regions, instead, go for darker hues that submerge any unevenness. Here are a few examples of you can style some of your looks to avoid the exposure of man boobs: © Instagram © Instagram © Instagram © Instagram © Instagram
  16. It's a rather sad day for the film fraternity as actor-turned-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan has been diagnosed with early stages of throat cancer. But the good news is, the man is battling the disease head on and is in full spirits, dealing with everything patiently. (c)Twitter While Rakesh is dealing with cancer, he's certainly lucky to have son Hrithik Roshan by his side, boosting his spirits and making the frenzied moment a bit more relaxed, by giving him all the support he needs. The 69-year-old filmmaker was diagnosed with 'squamous cell carcinoma of the throat' (throat cancer) and he will be undergoing surgery today for the same. What's rather astonishing in a good way is the fact that Mr. Roshan, despite having a major surgery today, didn't miss out on 'gym time' with his actor son Hrithik, and both took a selfie together right after their workout! This possibly has to be the best will-power in place and we're loving the strength he's fighting the disease with. On Instagram and Twitter, Hrithik shared a picture with Rakesh captioned- “Asked my dad for a picture this morning. Knew he wouldnt miss gym on surgery day. He is probably the strongest man I know. Got diagnosed with early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat a few weeks ago, but he is in full spirits today as he proceeds to battle it. As a family we are fortunate and blessed to have a leader like him. .Love you Dad.” A post shared by hrithik_roshanðµ (@hritikroshanfanclub) on Jan 7, 2019 at 9:24pm PST Admirers and fans Tweeted and showered some good wishes too. He will surely be alright soon. Prayers for Roshan Family.. ð — Rupil Dev Lamsar (@rupildev) 8 January 2019 My wishes for his speedy recovery! — Rima Chaturvedi (@RimaChaturvedi) 8 January 2019 Prayers for Rakesh sir ððspeedy recovery.... We all r waiting for many n more movies.... Please sir get well soon... Superhero ðð — Dr.Abinash (@DrAbinashpatta1) 8 January 2019 The very talented actor-turned-filmmaker has given us many hits including the 'Krrish' franchise and is currently working on 'Krrish 4'. Apart from that, the father son duo have also worked on 'Kaho Na Pyaar Hai', 'Koi Mil Gaya' and 'Kaabil' together and we certainly want to see more of them this year. (c)Twitter Here's hoping the surgery and the healing process pan out rather well and Rakesh Roshan recovers promisingly. After all, we love the fighter within him.
  17. The sixth season of Karan Johar's 'Koffee With Karan' is only getting wilder with each episode and last night's episode was controversial too. In case you haven't seen the episode yet, Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya is getting major flak from his fans for his 'choice of words' while talking about women and his love life. From being candid about dropping out at after 9th standard to losing his virginity, Hardik spoke unapologetically about many things, most of which did not go down too well with people. © Instagram KL Rahul on the other hand played really safe and is now being hailed as a gentleman by his fans. Amidst all the candid conversations, a crucial question was put forth that kind of confirmed the news that we all knew, but pretended that we did not believe it. Thanks to KL Rahul and Karan Johar, it is now confirmed that Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora are most certainly dating each other.

To this, Karan asked if it was "because she was dating Arjun Kapoor?" And Rahul replied, "Yeah." Rahul also revealed that his most embarrassing moment was when his mother found a condom in his room when he was 18. He also confessed that he would like to take Katrina Kaif out on a date.

  18. With 2018 being the year of grand Bollywood weddings, we wonder what the year 2019 has in store for our celebs, especially for some of the most noted couples on the horizon. Be it Ranbir-Alia, Malaika-Arjun or for that matter, our very beloved Sallu Bhaijaan, tabloids and fans alike are on alert for any news about possible wedding bells.

And when it does, we are more than sure it'll be national news, and if Bhai's powers are to be believed we might even get blessed with a national holiday the following day, for celebratory purposes! (Oh, how we wish!) Wayward hopes apart, let us tell you something about Salman Khan's wedding plans that have come from the man himself. Recently, Salman was part of the latest episode of 'The Kapil Sharma Show', and following popular demands, Kapil ended up posing the same query to Bhai in the guise of enquiring about his upcoming film 'Bharat'. Salman took the question to heart and decided to answer it for all to hear.

This doesn't sound like good news to his fans either, does it? However, while Salman may be shying away from tying the knot anytime soon, he did have his fair share of affairs to make up for it. But did you know that Salman follows a personal "no kissing policy" wherein he stays away from kissing his co-stars on-screen? Well, when this was brought up, Arbaaz pointed out that he can follow such a policy so easily since he has kissed most of them off-screen. Ahem, that's some scoop, eh?
  19. Getting inked is a big decision. It's not a decision that should ideally be taken on a whim. It takes days of research and planning and then deciding on a glyph that means something special to you. However, that doesn't mean your tat should be generic, as you can experiment with a host of different styles that exist out there. Here's are some cool trends that you can check out before you get started thinking about your next tattoo: Japanese Tattoos The artistry began in the Yayoi period (c. 300 BC–300 AD) when the markers were used to identify masters and slaves distinctly. Then, in the Kofun period (300 –600 AD), things changed drastically when tattoos started being associated with a negative connotation since they were used as marks for criminals. The traditional images from the past generation are “images of the floating world” called ukiyo-e in the Japanese. Some of the famous ones today are: 1. The Geisha © Geisha 2. The Samurai © Japanese Samurai 3. The Japanese Temple © temple brookelyn kelly 4. The Floating Tiger © carl howell Watercolour Tattoos: A relatively new trend, the tattoo mimics the finish of watercolours. Using bright and vibrant colours, the artist attempts to capture the essence of watercolours on your skin. The designs have a unique world of their own. However, there is a controversy around these tats that they might not last as they age but, that also depends on a host of factors including the experience of your tattoo artist, the technique and the quality of the colours used. It's best to do thorough research first. 5. Ambiguous Triangles © watercolors tattoos 6. The Street Art © watercolor tattoos 7. The Cute Wolf © taluh andriah 8. Geometric Flowers © sasha unisex Blackwork Tattoos: A trend that covers skin completely with bold black ink. It's one of the older trends, but certainly more attention-grabbing than others. It is inspired by tribal art where these tattoos were used as markers of identity among the tribe. 9. The Abstract Blackwork © blackwork 10. The Black Leg © oldtattoer 11. The Geometric Hand © rootist tattoo Realistic Tattoos: These tattoos look strikingly similar to the object they've been inspired from.

  20. So, 2018 is quickly drawing to a close, which means that it's officially time to start making your New Year resolutions. One such resolution that's usually near the top of such lists has to do with being more healthy, and one of the healthiest changes you can make to your lifestyle, is to take up running. However, while it's much more hassle-free than joining a gym, it still requires more than a pair of running shoes and a willingness to sweat. To really get the most out of running regularly, there are a few things you need to know about before you even take your first stride. So, to help you adopt and stick to this healthy lifestyle change, here are a few basic tips that will help you kick-start your journey the right way, stay on track, and reap the rewards when you do get out there: 1. Visualise A Finish Line © Official Instagram: Milind Soman The first thing to do after you decide to start running is to set yourself a target to work towards. It could be a race you want to participate in, such as a marathon or a sprint. It could even be a specific time you want to beat or a particular distance you want to master. Keeping a goal in mind not only helps keep you motivated, but it also dictates your training pattern, nutrition regime and the kind of running equipment you should purchase to keep track of your progress. However, just because you hit your target doesn't mean you've reached the end of your journey. They say that every finish line is the start of a new race, so once you achieve your initial goal, the next thing to do is to set yourself a new one. 2. 'Gear Up' In The Right Way © Pixabay There's a lot of equipment that will help you along the way, but the most important piece you need to purchase is the right pair of running shoes. And no, just grabbing the most comfortable pair of shoes will not do - you need proper running shoes. Why, do you ask? Well, unlike your other trainers, running shoes are designed to allow your foot to strike the ground in such a way that it reduces the impact that travels up your leg. They're also designed to fit your feet snugly so that they don't slip and slide when you're on the move or cause any painful blisters on your feet. Don't just go into the store and buy the first pair that looks cool or go by brand name alone - take the time to find the pair that's perfect for you. It might require a little more time and effort, and take a chunk out of your wallet, but it'll reduce the risk of suffering common and painful injuries, making it totally worth it in the long run (pun intended!). Pro tip: If you're on an incredibly tight budget, you check out the best running shoes under Rs. 1000 for men. 3. Find The Perfect Track © Official Instagram: Milind Soman Once you're fully equipped to head out on your runs, the next thing to do is to figure out where you can run. A treadmill might be your first thought, but outdoor running is always a better option since treadmills 'pull' the ground under your feet and don't involve any wind resistance. This makes running somewhat easier, meaning you won't be able to enjoy the same results as outdoor running. The ideal running track is soft (think grass-covered), scenic, well-lit and free of traffic. This might be more of a task if you live in the city where space is limited, so mapping out a running track in a nearby park might be your best option. It's a good idea to consult other runners about the routes they prefer because you might find places you had overlooked before or didn't even know existed. 4. Fuel Yourself Correctly © Pixabay You might have heard your favourite athlete talk about how pasta and other carb-rich foods are an important part of their pre-match routine, but this does not give you a free pass to pile pasta on your plate! A clean, healthy diet is enough to fuel you when you're starting off. The time for strict dieting comes only when you're training seriously for a marathon or another competitive race. Hydration is another important factor for a runner, and many runners tend to overdo it. The important thing is to resist the urge to gulp down lots of water before you run because drinking excessive amounts of fluid doesn't serve any purpose. Instead, focus on drinking only when you're feeling thirsty. 5. Persistence Pays Off © Pexels Staying motivated is another aspect most beginners struggle with, which is why so many running regimes seem to get off to a promising beginning only to fizzle out midway. If you're just starting out, you should prepare yourself for sore legs and maybe even a sore back. This doesn't mean running is bad for you - it simply means that your body isn't used to the physical activity. So don't hang up your running shoes at the first signs of soreness, because the aches and pains WILL settle down eventually!

  22. Salman Khan may not be the best dancer Bollywood has seen, but he surely is the best brother Sohail and Arbaaz could have asked for. It is a fact well known that Salman can move heaven and earth for his family, and so he has always stood by his brothers through thick and thin. View this post on Instagram Just a few years ago :) A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Oct 4, 2017 at 7:08am PDT While there are very few movies where the brothers have come together and shared the screen space (read 'Hello Brother'), we have otherwise witnessed both Arbaaz and Sohail appear in movies alongside their big brother, and entertain us thoroughly (Read 'Hello Brother', 'Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya', 'Dabangg', 'Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya' and the likes). But this Christmas, the brothers gave us a visual dose of what it might be like to have all three of them share the silver screen yet again (well, one can always wish), and the end result has left us in high spirits! View this post on Instagram Merry Xmas to all.... A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Dec 25, 2018 at 10:00am PST Last night, Salman Khan shared a short video of the Christmas celebrations on his Instagram account. In it we can see that Sallu Bhai and Arbaaz are grooving to a peppy number on the dance floor, while Sohail joins the duo soon. The three brothers can be seen tapping their feet together (almost in-sync) and really having a lot of fun together. Later their brother-in-law and actor Ayush Sharma also joins the trio in the end of the video. View this post on Instagram Emotionally dependent on Independence Day ð A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Aug 15, 2017 at 5:00am PDT It's good to see the brothers having a good time together, and we really feel that video set the ball rolling for the season's happy-high spirits, what with Christmas bidding us adieu and the new year peeking at us from right around the corner.
  23. In the present day, if you are a regular gym rat you must have heard about Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) and maybe considered using them as well. It is worth mentioning that steroids were never developed for athletic or aesthetic purposes. They were made to treat the ill with muscle wasting conditions in cases of burns, cancer, AIDS or old age. Despite significant side effects, people consistently use AAS in supra-physiological doses, until 2000 the primary users were men involved in bodybuilding (amateur or pro), powerlifting and other athletic endeavours. But there is an alarming increase in young generation using steroids, as a study published by Public Health Wales reports 1 million active male steroid users in U.K i.e. 3% of its population. What is even more surprising, that lads as young as 13-21 are taking steroids. If we extrapolate that 3% to India's Urban male population that will be equal to a whacking 5.4 Million steroid users. © Unsplash Are More Men Interested In Bodybuilding & Powerlifting? With this drastic increase in steroid use, you might think that more of today's generation is interested in competitive Bodybuilding and Powerlifting. But stats reveal something unpredictable: only 27% men were involved in strength and athletic events, merely 22% were involved in competitive bodybuilding, and 56% were using because of body image issues or cosmetic purposes. Having A Greek God Physique Is A Necessity In This Generation! Rick Collins, an American lawyer who specializes in steroid use cases, quotes: “We live in a culture that is absolutely obsessed with appearance. We are judged by our looks every day. So when we look our best, we feel more self-confident. Are steroid users trying to impress themselves or trying to impress others? Both, of course.” © YouTube We dwell in a time where a great physique is a necessity to get roles in movies, be a cover model or run a fitness YouTube channel. In fact, if you do not have 16-inch arms & washboard abs, people won't believe you are serious about fitness. The whole purpose of lifting weights and eating healthy has become: aesthetics. There is a growing pressure on men to look more manly, more muscular, this is probably forcing them to take anabolics. But put aside the physiological side effects, I believe this young steroid using generation is also missing out something vital: The Process. You Are Missing Out On The Process! © Medium Apart from building muscles and strength, you build a character in the gym. The countless number of reps over the years transforms your body from a fragile person who was unable to do bodyweight squats to someone who can now lift more than two times his body weight. These things do not just develop physical but also mental strengths. This reaps perseverance inside you, you develop confidence that with commitment and consistency, you get stronger at things you were once weak. Arnold Schwarzenegger profoundly applied these lessons he learned in the gym to his business, Hollywood and political career. Building a good body with steroids without putting in the necessary hard work and consistency is perhaps developing a loser mentality in this generation. P.S: We know that Arnold used steroids, but he won multiple shows naturally during his teenage and probably exploited his natural potential. Have you even scratched the surface of your natural potential? Yash Sharma is a former national level Football player, now a Strength Coach, Nutritionist and Natural Bodybuilder.

  24. With the festive season being kicked into high gear, the onslaught of Christmas parties, Secret Santa gift exchanges, and New Year's Eve celebrations is about to be upon us.This also means that, in all likelihood, you too would be hosting a party or two in the coming weeks. Now hosting a house party creates a dangerous and misleading illusion - it makes it seem like it's easy to do, when in reality it's actually the complete opposite. After all, a good host has to take care of all of the arrangements for the party, as well as make sure that everyone is in high spirits, all the while having a good time themselves. It's a thankless job, one where you have take care of anything and everything - from ensuring there is enough food and drinks for all (that too incorporating your guests' preferences), to making sure everyone manages to navigate their way to your crib. And while everything has to go right for the party to be a success, it takes just one screw-up for it to be a flop. So to help all of our party animals be adequately prepared for all the Christmas parties, New Year's Eve celebrations, and even just the generic house parties they'll surely be hosting in the future, here are four tips they should try adhering to. 1) Make Sure You Own Quality Wireless Speakers As No Party Is Complete Without Great Music © Unsplash Perhaps second only to the food and drinks, good music is going to play the most essential part in ensuring that your party is going to be a success. As such, you need to absolutely make sure that, if you don't already have quality speakers lying somewhere around your house, you invest in the best portable Bluetooth speakers you could get your hands on. The best speakers out there usually come equipped with a significant wireless range, long battery life, and premium quality of sound. While you don't have to be brand brat, if you can afford it, then it's advisable to opt for speakers belonging to premium brands. 2) Appearances Matter, And A Good Host HAS To Be Presentable © Official Instagram/Kartik Aaryan Since you'll be the host of your house party, you cannot compromise on your appearance. After all, a good host has to be presentable as well. Since we are in the middle of winters, you should start by updating your winter wardrobe - make sure you know about the best leather jackets, the best overcoats, and the best sweaters for men available in the market. After that, you can't ignore your grooming game as well. So make sure that your grooming kit is winter ready - the best face creams, moisturisers and body lotions for winters are a must. You should also take care of your beard game by investing in the best electric shavers, beard oils and moustache waxes (if applicable!). 3) Make Sure That The Food Or Booze Doesn't Run Out © Pexels One of the worst things that can happen at any party, one that is certain to act as a major party pooper, is for the food or booze - especially the booze - to run out. So when you're prepping for the party, make sure you have enough food and drinks stocked up for your entire guest list. In fact, as a cautious effort, make sure you also take into account any extra people or potential plus ones that might show up at the last minute (here's a hint, they almost always do!). While you're at it, also make sure that there is enough variety of booze being served, since you wouldn't want a wine lover to compromise by drinking beer, or vice-versa. 4) Finally, Don't Forget To Have A Good Time! via GIPHY This might sound like an obvious thing to say, but the stress of hosting a party, ensuring that everyone is having a good time, and making sure that all the arrangements are in order (including the booze, food and music) can preoccupy you to such an extent that you end up forgetting to enjoy your own party. And since you've invested so much time, effort and money in hosting it, that just doesn't seem right. So make sure that, regardless of anything else, you don't forget to have a good time.
  25. No matter how old we grow, we can never be old enough to stop watching animated movies. The excitement with which every 90s kid still remembers movies like 'Lion King', only proves the same. In fact, when you have movies as exceptional as the ones here, you don't really need any convincing. As we bid farewell to 2018, let's take a look at some of the brilliant animated films that released this year. Incredibles 2 When the Incredibles came back so did our inner child, who we didn't know was desperately waiting for the movie to release. Our excitement was at its peak, especially because we have been waiting for the sequel for more than 14 years, and the wait was totall worth it. And a special mention to Jack Jack for being one of the most badass toddlers out there. Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz have become close friends after their misadventures six years ago. From seeking help from the netizens to meeting Disney's princesses in one place, the duo has some insane fun when they travel to the World Wide Web, to search for a replacement part to save 'Sugar Rush', Vanellope's video game. Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, the sequel of 'Wreck-It Ralph' released on November 21, 2018. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Although the movie hasn't released yet, but we have our hopes really high from this one. The trailer looks promising and gives us a sneak peek into the world of Miles Morales, a teenage superhero with spider-like abilities, and his struggle in a universe where there can be more than just one Spider-Man. Smallfoot For decades, the legend around the mythical creature called Yeti has intrigued us and its existence has been a question that has troubled people. But, what if they actually exist and have similar thoughts and confusion about humans? Karey Kirkpatrick's deals with this very aspect in 'Smallfoot', where a Yeti is convinced that 'smallfoot' creatures like 'humans' (whom they have considered as legend) exist. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Released in July this year, the movie might have received mixed reviews from the critics, but it smashed at the box office as it made over $527 million globally, against a budget of $80 million. This movie revolves around our favourite monster family and their crazy vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship. So folks, here is our list. In case, we missed out your favourite movie, let us know in the comments section below.
