  1. The wedding season is back and like an old book, we know the full story of how it will go down for all of us. We will get drunk, dance our hearts out, eat like a maniac and be extremely excited because chances are that one of our friends, or our cousins are taking the plunge this year. So, while you decide what you have to wear to catch the eye of the prettiest girl at the wedding, here are 10 Punjabi songs you can add to the list of songs you have to dance to at your BFF's wedding this time. 1. Lehenga Probably one of the most played songs this wedding season and rightly so! Every girl is dancing to it, so in case you are in the 'team bride', this can be your jam. 2. Gur Naalo Ishq Mitha Trust Honey Singh to add his groove to any old number. This classic song has been remixed by the Yo!Yo! king himself and you can obviously not avoid performing to it with the whole crew. 3. Morni Banke Get everyone on the dance floor because this one is the perfect crowd puller for friends from both the sides. 4. Taarefan Whether it is the boys asking the girls, or the bride tribe grooving to it, this track is a great song to be added to the performance chart. 5. Veer Ji Vyon Is there any other number which sums up how one feels when your best friend gets married? Perfect song to dance on the 'baraat'. 6. Tommy You can either choreograph it or do an impromptu gig dancing to this fun song. 7. Panjeba Another song for the bride tribe which is not about your BFF being a coy bride, but one 'bindaas' babe ready to tie the knot as her friends dance to this song. 8. Sauda Khara Khara No wedding is complete without a Sukhbir number where the crowd chants 'Oho' while the DJ turns down the volume. This classic number is back in time for the entire friend crew looking for a group dancing number. 9. Mithi Mithi Perfect song for the bros to challenge the 'Banno' ki 'sahelis' to a dance off on this number. 10. Wonderland This is a three-year-old track but nothing tells a girl that your bro loves her more than this absolutely crazy dance number. View the full article
  2. Arguably one of the most destructive openers in international cricket, Rohit Sharma has the ability to put some of the best bowlers in the sport to shame. His wide array of strokes often sees him cutting a sorry figure for the opposition bowling unit while giving Team India a flying start at the top. His artistry with the willow was recently in full display as India coasted to a 67-run triumph over West Indies in the 3rd Twenty20 International (T20I) at the Wankhede stadium. The right-hander slammed a breathtaking 34-ball 71 including six fours and five sixes to help India post an imposing total of 240 runs. Here he is...𤩠The new #LaLiga Brand Ambassador in India, Rohit Sharma! ð®ð³ðâ½â¨ Welcome, @ImRo45! ð¤ð pic.twitter.com/ecMsRb9rzS — LaLiga (@LaLigaEN) December 12, 2019 Following his blitzkrieg, which allowed India to secure a 2-1 series win, Rohit, once again, thronged social media after he was appointed by La Liga as their brand ambassador from India. The Mumbai cricketer has become the first individual from the country to be appointed as the ambassador of the popular Spanish football league. Hola India/España, as you guys know, football has always held a special place in my heart so this association is so special to me. And to be named the ambassador for the La Liga is so humbling. So excited for this partnership @LaLigaEN pic.twitter.com/prZFFSeHdV — Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) December 12, 2019 An ardent Real Madrid fan, the 'Hitman' revealed that football has always held a special place in his heart and he feels special by La Liga's gesture to appoint him as their brand ambassador. "Hola India/España, as you guys know, football has always held a special place in my heart so this association is so special to me. And to be named the ambassador for the La Liga is so humbling. So excited for this partnership @LaLigaEN," he wrote on Twitter. During the La Liga event in Mumbai, Rohit was asked to reveal the best footballer in the Indian cricket team. "I think MS Dhoni is the best footballer in our team," Rohit was quoted saying by India Today. The opening batsman also revealed that he prefers playing in a midfield role in warm-up football matches between Indian players. © Twitter "The captain decides who plays where. I love playing as a midfielder during warm-up matches because that's the most challenging spot. Football is played as a warm-up because it brings us together as a team makes our body active," Rohit added. Those who know Dhoni or perhaps have seen his biopic would know that football is nothing new to the former Indian captain. For someone who had started out as a goalkeeper in his school football team, Dhoni was turned into a wicket-keeper by his childhood coach after their cricket team's main keeper had pulled out due to exams.

  3. Kartik Aaryan's Pati, Patni, Aur Woh has been hitting the headlines almost every other day, and clearly, he knows how to keep the conversation up, even through his fashion choices. Kartik just wore something to the airport which is statement clothing at its best, and is teaching us some major self-love lessons. Take a look. © Instagram/the.vainglorious © Instagram/the.vainglorious Kartik wore a grey hoodie that has an outline of his own face from his upcoming movie, replete with a moustache and the hashtag #ChintuTyagi. © Viral Bhayani Kartik has paired the statement grey hoodie with a super functional pair of blue jeans. The fact that he has chosen to wear a rusty brown overcoat (from Corneliani) shows that he really is fond of well-layered ensembles. (Props to his stylists Priyanka and Kazim from The Vainglorious for constantly keeping it cool.) © Viral Bhayani We love the fact that he has kept it classy in the footwear department by opting for a pair of good ol' black Oxfords. When it comes to accessories, we totally approve of that edgy af pair of sunnies. © Viral Bhayani Talk about being dedicated to a movie role! Kudos, Kartik. View the full article
  4. When it comes to loungewear shorts, the wilder the pattern, the better the pair looks. While men tend to play it safe with mainstream colours like dark blue or a brown or even more predictable with a colour like black, there are people who are open to the exciting options that exist out there. Case in point, Saif Ali Khan. © Viral Bhayani Recently, he stepped out with Taimur in the most exciting shorts we've seen in a while. These shorts had all sorts of candies and ice creams printed on it in vibrant colour tones. Saif Ali Khan looked like he was stepping out for grocery shopping, and honestly, we think this is probably the best grocery shopping outfit that we've seen in a while. © Viral Bhayani Besides, this is the sort of pattern that men should ideally dip their toes in, just like quirky socks, quirky patterns are a great choice for a casual Sunday stay-at-home-brunch outfit. This year has been great for Saif Ali Khan as Netflix original Sacred Games' second season came out. This was followed by his film Laal Kaptaan, wherein he plays the role of a Naga Sadhu. Besides, the trailer for his film Tanhaji came out, in which he plays the role of a warrior. Just like his outfits, clearly, Saif Ali Khan has been taking up diverse roles. View the full article
  5. Thanks to first-party and third-party developer support, the Nintendo Switch has become one of the most robust Nintendo consoles ever. Sure, the console is not officially sold here in India but people can still get their hands on it via other sources. In fact, the Nintendo Switch has outsold the Xbox One in India even though Xbox has an official presence in the country. According to the MakoReactor, Nintendo Switch's lifetime India sale numbers are believed to be above 50,000. In fact, the number could have risen a bit since the report was first published a few months ago. This means a lot of you own the console who are probably looking for the best games to play on the console. In 2019, we saw many games launch that also made its way to India and we've handpicked some of the games that you should consider buying. It includes games from various genres: 1. Pokemon Sword and Shield © Nintendo If you have been a fan of past titles, you will not be disappointed by this entry into the franchise It is as addicting as previous Pokemon games and comes with new dynamic environments. It as an open-world-style Wild Areas filled with wild Pokémon for you to catch and comes with new Dynamax battles. You can also do Max Raids with your friends to take on giant Pokemons and earn rewards to make your Pokemon party stronger. You can expect good 20 hours of single-player and potentially unlimited gameplay thanks to the new game modes. 2. Overwatch © Blizzard Entertainment We still can't believe Blizzard was able to port the highly competitive hero shooter game for the Nintendo Switch. We reviewed the game when it first came out and it is by one of the best multiplayer games you can play on the console. To know more about the game, read our detailed review here. 3. Luigi's Mansion 3 © Nintendo If you ever wanted to be a Ghostbuster while also cosplaying as a Nintendo Character, this game may just be for you. This game comes with one of the most satisfying environmental puzzles in the series as you explore a labyrinth hotel that turns into a haunted mansion. It's a fun and casual adventure game with clever puzzles and an endearing story. 4. Super Mario Maker 2 © Nintendo The level-creating game that will give you literally countless levels to play is, by far, the most value for money game on our list. You can play the game cooperatively and competitively with friends; make your own levels or play on levels created by other users. There are some really cleverly and creatively designed levels that you can play and save to play offline whenever you want. Super Mario Maker 2 also comes with its own story mode with 100 levels you can clear. 5. NBA 2K20 © YouTube Not everyone is a fan of playing competitive or casual adventure games.

You can also play the MyCareer mode to play the single-player narrative experience. Visually, the game looks awesome and have realistic character models to give you the feeling as if you are watching a match on live television. 6. The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt - Complete Edition © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Witcher 3 will go down as of the best RPGs of all time and the game finally made its way to the Nintendo Switch this year. However, in this version Switch, players will get all of the DLCs and the full game which can result in over 100 hours of gameplay. The game has a gripping story that will keep you at the edge of your seat and a great combat system to keep you busy in the massive world. 7. Super Smash Bros.

  6. Lately, if there's one thing that's striking enough to take notice of, it has to be Maniesh Paul's sneaker game. It's safe to say that he is not just a great anchor and a host but also a sneakerhead who can easily give elite B-town celebrities a run for their money. Mostly spotted in chunky sneakers, his collection is hands down the best we have seen in a while. This time, Maniesh made an appearance that outclassed other sneakerheads as well. Have you ever come across a pair that legit has a painting on it? Well, we believe only Maniesh could knock it off with these baroque artwork sneakers. The silhouette and the design have the vibe of the 18th century and it is sure to take you back in time. © Viral Bhayani This particular pair is Versace's Chain Reaction Panelled Canvas Sneakers. These sneakers are a tribute to the house's heritage. Furthermore, it is emblazoned with iconic baroque artwork, encased in opaque rubber. They feature the signature of the label that is 'Greco' motif along the soles. The heels are made in leather with 3D Medusa heads. © Viral Bhayani © Versace © Versace Wondering about the price of these sneakers? Well, they cost a bomb just like a painting would. As per Versace's website, these sneakers retail at Rs 71,000 but many international online e-tailers have this pair at a lesser price as compared to its original cost. © Versace We have to say that this is yet again another trend-setting pair that's about to raise the street style creds to a whole a new level. As for Maniesh's outfit, he was spotted wearing a basic hoodie with leather patch acid wash jeans. © Viral Bhayani Truly Maniesh, you are stealing the limelight and we cannot wait for more such appearances of yours!

  7. 2019 has been a great year for smartphones in general. From budget phones to high-end flagships, we got a ton of new phones this year. And if there's one thing that has improved a lot this year, then it's the smartphone cameras. This has been the case across different price ranges, which is simply amazing. Today, we'll be taking a look at some of the best smartphone cameras according to DxOMark. DxOMark, for those of you who don't know, is an independent benchmarking website that scientifically accesses smartphones and its lenses. They do a pretty job of testing out the cameras and coming up with a comprehensive review of the same. So, let's take a look at DxOMark's picks for the best smartphone cameras. © YouTube/ TheVerge Firstly, we have the all-rounder category, which basically means these phones are good for both photography and videography. According to the website, it's the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition. Both of them are kickass devices and they pack some really good cameras. The Mate 30 Pro sports a quad-camera setup, whereas the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition sports a Penta-camera setup with a 108MP sensor. The Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition isn't available in India right now, but we think Xiaomi is already gearing up to launch it, or at least a version of it, in India as the Mi Note 10. So, keep your eyes peeled. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee As for videography, well, this one must've been very easy to pick. It's the iPhone 11 Pro Max. One of the reasons we think it's best for videos because it has the ability to shoot HDR videos without losing any details. That makes a whole lot of difference. Heck, Selena Gomez even shot a music video with the phone. Yes, it's that good. Next up, we have the best smartphone with ultra-wide cameras. According to DxOMark, the Galaxy Note 10+ has the best ultra-wide lens. iPhone 11 Pro Max is also equally good, but it looks like Samsung's your best bet. And when it comes to optical zoom, DxOMark says the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the winner. Well, that's not really surprising considering the fact that you can use the phone to take some stunning shots of the moon, just like you would on the P30 Pro. Lastly, we have the low-light photography, and the website says the Mate 30 Pro is the winner here too. Sadly, the iPhone didn't make the cut here, and neither did the Pixel 4. © YouTube/ GSMArena DxOMark hardly has budget phones on the list, so we decided to add our picks. If your budget is under Rs. 15,000, then we think the Redmi Note 8 Pro is a great option for you. It has a 64MP sensor, which means you can get some stunning-looking images with crisp details. However, if you're on a tight budget, then we think you should check out the Redmi Note 8 or the Realme 5s. Both of them have 48MP sensors and have a ton of different lenses for a versatile setup.

  8. We all make mistakes and we all learn, at least we try to. Our favourite Bollywood stars are no different. While this movie making factory dishes out movies like crazy with so many new faces to experiment with, some movies only work for the beloved super stars acting in them. After all, loyalty has a price. However, some movies saw some of the biggest stars losing their senses and pelting out such bad performances that it legit hurt their fans. Here are six movies where some of the best actors gave really bad performances: 1. Love Story 2050 Our 'desi' girl is a global icon today with volumes of great works that speak for her. When she is not slaying on the red carpet or working on a good project, she is spotted in some virtual PDA with her beloved husband Nick Jonas. However, long before PeeCee became a Hollywood star, Love Story 2050 saw her dishing out a bad performance and as per rumours, it was reportedly because of her not-so-good relationship with her ex-flame Harman Baweja. 2. Khushi Bebo is one gorgeous actor who can look fiery and dish out immensely fiery performances in equal measure. However, it is a known fact that in her initial days of Bollywood, she signed some of the random projects but Khushi kind of tops the list, because what was that performance, you queen? 3. RGV Ki Aag You are not supposed to touch master pieces like Sholay because that is like playing with fire. And looks like, this is exactly what RGV wanted to do when he made this dud and managed to make BIG B look so intensely bored in this movie, that it probably made it to his regret list soon enough. 4. Aap Mujhe Acche Lagne Lage There is a reason why Hrithik Roshan is known as a Greek God. Those looks, that ripped body and a talent house of wonderful acting, I have no idea what went into him prepping up for this movie where nothing at all looked good to us. Why, Hrithik? 5. Besharam Ranbir Kapoor's work speaks for him. With tremendous acting done by this genius of an actor in films like Rockstar and Barfi, this movie has no explanation of how it landed in his kitty and why! 6. Dil Ne Jisse Apna Kaha Salman Khan's screen presence is strong enough to get the cash registers ringing but we have no logical explanation for what went into him doing this movie with Preity Zinta and Bhumika Chawla. Three good looking people, one badly written script. So glad that bhai is back to doing Dabangg and entertain us in a way which only he can do. View the full article
  9. If you are someone who already owns a Nintendo Switch and always plays on the go, you may want to buy a power bank for the console. Sure you can get any power bank that can get the job done but not all power banks charge the Nintendo Switch at the same rate and sometimes different users have different needs. The right power bank depends on what kind of gaming you do, how long are your travel plans and your budget. When buying a power bank for any specific need, you need to look at charging speeds, capacity and other benefits you may have not considered before. Certain games drain more power than other casual games and when other variables such as Wi-Fi and max screen brightness are being used, some power banks will not charge the Nintendo Switch while playing. When all of these conditions are in place, the Nintendo Switch has a maximum energy draw of ~8.75-8.9W. You will need a power bank that can surpass that draw level while charging. So to make things easier, weâve handpicked some of the best power banks you can buy for the Nintendo Switch in India: 1. Anker PowerCore Speed 20,000 PD (20,000mAh) Anker is one of the best accessory manufacturing companies from the US that offers quality power banks, brick chargers and other accessories for your devices. This power bank can deliver full power delivery support at 22.5W and is even capable of charging the MacBook Pro. The Anker PowerCore Speed 20,000 PD's output via the type-c port are 5V=3A, 9V=2.6A, 15V=1.6A which is more than enough for your Nintendo Switch charging needs. This power bank is perfect if you are travelling for long periods and it can charge the console while playing any heavy-duty game. It can charge the Nintendo Switch in 3.5 hours while playing or 2.5-3 hours when in sleep mode. 2. Stuffcool Type C 18W Power Delivery Power Bank (10,000 mAh) If you are on a budget and donât necessarily want a big capacity power bank, you can always consider the Stuffcool Type C 18W Power Delivery Power Bank (10,000 mAh). It is compatible with QC3.0 and also offers 18W power delivery charging speeds from its type-c port. It is sturdy and small enough to fit in your pocket during your travels. It has an output power of 5V/3Amp, 9V/2Amp & 12V/1.5Amp and can charge the Nintendo Switch in 4 hours while playing or 3 hours when in sleep mode. 3. Realme Power bank (10,000 mAh) The Realme Power bank is great for charging smartphones, but it also great for charging the Nintendo Switch, thanks to its 18W PD charging support. It supports Apple 2.4A, DCP, QC 2.0, QC 3.0, AFC, FCP, as well as USB PD 3.0 charging protocols. From the Type-A port, the charging outputs include 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A (Max) when using a single port. It can charge the Nintendo Switch in 4 hours while playing or 3 hours when in sleep mode. 4. Ambrane Stylo 10F 10000 mAh This power bank is by far the cheapest weâve found that offers PD fast charging speeds for the Nintendo Switch. The Type-c port has an output at 5V/3A which means it can charge the Nintendo Switch in 3-3.5 hours (sleeping) and 4+ hours (playing). It isnât the fastest way to charge the Nintendo Switch but it is certainly the cheapest way to get it done. It comes with a capacitive button which can get damaged if you donât take care of the power bank. What about other power banks One thing you may have noticed that weâve only included power banks with a type-c port that support PD charging. Thatâs because it is by far the best solution as not all power banks are made the same and do not have the same output levels. This doesnât mean other power banks with a USB-A port cannot charge the Nintendo Switch. These power banks need to have an output of 5V/1.5A in order to charge the Nintendo Switch. However, you can only charge the Switch in sleeping mode and it will take 4+ hours to get fully charged. You will need a USB-A to USB-C cable in order to use the power bank. There is a chance that you can charge the Switch while playing using the USB-A port however it will only work for certain gaming conditions. Plugging it in while the Switch is at 100% gives the best result as it can extend the Switchâs battery life by 4.5 hours when using a 10,000 mAh power bank. View the full article
  10. Farhan Akhtar is a versatile Bollywood actor who is not just known for his impeccable acting skills, but also for his understated style. The actor who was last seen in The Sky Is Pink has been making quite a statement when it comes to his sartorial sensibilities. From walking the ramp with Shibani Dandekar to twinning with her at the airport, we must say his fashion game is only soaring higher. © Viral Bhayani Recently, he was spotted with Shibani Dandekar in a different avatar. We have seen Farhan in his most relaxed avatars but this time he revived the casual look in a slit kurta shirt. Is he becoming a street-style aficionado one step at a time? We think so. © Viral Bhayani Farhan & Shibani have made several appearances together in which both of them have been at their fashionable best. This recent look shows how well-coordinated they are always. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Farhan is currently prepping for his next movie Toofan. He is playing the role of a boxer which is pretty clear from these pictures, given his edgy transformation. We love how he is flaunting that in a stylish kurta shirt with flared pants and black sneakers. We are keen on taking more inspiration from you, Farhan. Keep up the game! View the full article
  11. Let's face it, every time Pulkit Samrat steps out, he is either seen wearing an insane outfit or a spunky pair of sneakers. This underrated star has won our hearts with his impeccable sense of humour on-screen and some teary romantic movies. The actor is as limitless as Ranveer Singh when it comes to his fashion sense. A scroll through his Instagram and you would see how his style sense is synonymous with street style aesthetics. © Instagram/viralbhayani Recently for the screening of his movie, Pagalpanti, he offered us a good lesson on how to wear a metallic outfit. But his sneakers undoubtedly stole all the attention. The pair looks insane and we must say its Pagalpanti at its best. Here's why: © Instagram/viralbhayani © Balenciaga © Balenciaga Pulkit was spotted in his Balenciaga Track 2 White sneakers. This pair is designed in a combination of mesh and nylon and has a dynamic sole. Cool and comfortable, these sneakers set as an ultimate fashionable pair with its innovative design. It further features a round toe, lace-up front and Balenciaga logo printed on the outer side. © Instagram/viralbhayani These sneakers are as heavyweight as the price. They are available for Rs 60,000 that excludes import and customs duties. The brand is known for its super edgy sneakers. Even though they come at a humungous price range, the sartorial level of this brand remains unmatched. © Instagram/viralbhayani As for his outfit, he wore a metallic co-ord set by MKI Miyuki Zoku. The relaxed dress code makes for an uber-cool statement but his sneakers took his debonair look a notch higher. Ranveer, time to watch out for Pulkit! View the full article

  13. Smartphones that are priced under Rs. 30,000 are extremely popular in India. People prefer these phones over the flagship devices mainly because of all the value it offers for the money. You'll probably end up spending way less money and get some really powerful specs, great cameras, etc. Well, if you are planning to buy a new smartphone under Rs. 30,000, then these are the ones which we think are worth buying. 1. OnePlus 7 © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Yes, OnePlus has already launched the OnePlus 7T but doesn't make the OnePlus 7 a bad phone by any means. In fact, it received a price cut after the launch of OnePlus 7T, making it an even better offering. You can now pick up the OnePlus 7 for less than Rs 30,000, which is awesome. You'll get a 6.4-inch FHD+ panel, Snapdragon 855 SoC, a 48MP camera sensor and more. If you're interested, then you can read our full review of the OnePlus 7 right here. 2. Redmi K20 Pro © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Redmi K20 Pro is another great phone that's worth checking out in this price range. The phone looks stunning, sports an AMOLED panel, is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and has a triple camera setup with a 48MP sensor. It also has a great battery life. You can check out our review of the Redmi K20 Pro right here. 3. ASUS 6Z © YouTube/ GSMArena The ASUS 6Z has now received a significant price cut in India and is now available for just Rs. 25,999. At that price, it's a great device and is absolutely worth checking out. It's powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and comes with a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel and a massive 5,000 mAh battery. The highlight of the phone, however, is the rotating camera module, which includes a 48MP sensor. 4. Google Pixel 3a © YouTube/ Android Police Lastly, we have the Google Pixel 3a. Yes, Google has already launched Pixel 4, but it's not coming to India. So your best bet to get Google's camera under Rs. 30,000 is by buying the Pixel 3a. We use the Google Pixel 3a to shoot most of the pictures for our reviews and features, so we can confirm that it's a great phone and totally worth buying. View the full article
  14. If you're like me who grew up playing EA's original Need For Speed Most Wanted, then you already know that it's probably the best racing game of all time. Not only was it the best car racing game of its generation, but it's also been the best Need For Speed game all these years, even though we've seen an abundance of NFS racers. After a rather disappointing release of 2017's Need For Speed Payback, EA decided to drop the new Need For Speed Heat this year. Honestly, I wasn't really excited to play the new NFS game when I saw the trailer. It felt like just another futile attempt to recreate the franchise's glorious days. But now that I've spent a lot of hours with the game, I think it's safe to say that it's one of the best Need For Speed games I've played in a long time. 1. Gameplay © Ghost Games/Electronic Arts As soon as you'll start playing Heat, you'll quickly realise how much it resembles a lot of racing games out there. Not only does it combines the elements of some of the older Need For Speed games, it feels as though the developers have taken a lot of inspirations from titles like Forza Horizon. But the fact that they've packed it in a "Day" and "Night" format is just impressive. You get an option to race during the day when it's all about sanctioned street racing and cop-free tracks or take your whip out during the night which is all about illegal underground street racing. So if you want a thrilling cop chase, then you'd probably be better off driving at night. During the day, the game feels more like Forza Horizon. © Ghost Games/Electronic Arts The fact that you can choose to drive whenever you want and participate in whichever race you want, with or without cops' intervention, got me hooked. If I am in a mood to, say, sit back and have a relaxing time racing, then I'd pick the day. But racing during the night, trust me, is a lot more difficult than you think. Just like any other Need For Speed game, you have different 'Heat' levels in the game. Higher the heat level, the more aggressive the cops will become. Even with a Level 3 heat level, I wasn't able to outrun the cops and had to pay a hefty fine to get out. It becomes more difficult when you're in the middle of a campaign mission and cops start chasing you. I'd also like to point out that you can play the game both online or offline, but you'll make a decision before jumping into the game since there's no seamless transition between the two as found on some other games like Forza Horizon. 2. Graphics © Ghost Games/Electronic Arts Graphics hasn't really been an issue when it comes to the Need For Speed franchise. Well, the NFS Heat looks better than every other NFS game. Visually, I am a huge fan of the way the game looks at night. Palm City is just a different world at night, dripping with neon lights and signboards everywhere. It also rains a lot in the game, and makes the game look that much better with wet roads that reflect the neon lighting of the city. It's just fantastic. Palm City is inspired by Miami and I think it's perfect for street racing. The map itself is quite big and simply cruising along the roads, gazing at some cool spots like space center, an abandoned racing oval, etc. is a lot of fun. And if you're tired of that, just transition to night time and get into a cop chase to add more spice to your gameplay. © Ghost Games/Electronic Arts You can also customise the way your cars and even your character looks. Yes, you get to choose an avatar and fit him or her with cool merch courtesy of brands like adidas. It's just an added touch of fun and makes it a bit visually appealing as well. And you don't necessarily have to run the game to customise your car. You can download the Need For Speed Studio app on your phone and do it while killing some time. 3. Cars & Customisation As I mentioned, NFS Heat allows you to customise both the cars as well as the character. More than the character, obviously, the level of customisation which you can achieve with cars is simply amazing. As someone who likes to spend an equal amount of time customising the cars inside the garage as much as riding it outside, it's quite awesome. The game will also let you use the same car for all kinds of races, so you no longer need to have multiple cars in your garage just to get into races like drifting. You can simply go to the garage, add the necessary tires from your inventory and get going. The game's upgrade system is also a massive improvement from what we've been seeing all these years. © Ghost Games/Electronic Arts One of the biggest additions to the game is the ability to swap engines. It's quite an interesting thing because you can essentially increase the overall potential horsepower of the cars without having to settle for a mediocre number. Heck, you can also tune your exhaust and you bet I spent a lot of time playing around with it. 4. The Final Say So, is the Need For Speed Heat worth your time and money? Hell yeah! Look, it's not a perfect game by any means. In fact, it's not bringing any radically new to the table. Need For Speed Heat is all about combining different elements from different races and presenting it as one helluva package. Yes, the game's campaign could have been much better since the main story isn't the one that'll stay with you after you beat it. © Ghost Games/Electronic Arts Apart from that, I think the developer 'Ghost' has finally come up with a Need For Speed title that's much better than what I expected. If you ignore the mediocre storyline and the far-too limited soundtrack, I think the Need The Speed Heat is a kickass game. Not only do I think it's the best NFS game this generation, but it's also the one that I had the most fun playing after the original NFS Most Wanted. View the full article

For Rs 15,999, you can get the 128GB version of Poco F1, which is quite awesome if you think about it. It's got great specs, good cameras and a whole lot more. Read our review here to find out more.

  17. Shahid Kapoor and his stylist have been giving us one dapper style statement after the other for quite some time. However, throughout the year, some of the ensembles that the wonderfully talented stylist has curated for the Kabir Singh star has been truly wonderful. © Instagram/theanisha Well, for a recently organised award ceremony, Anisha one-upped the designers and presented a really zany and head-turning ensemble, that, honestly, should become the yardstick of how printed suits should be. © Viral Bhayani Shahid was seen in a rather kitschy black and white suit, complete with a co-ordinated shirt that quite simply is a masterpiece in itself. The suit's a courtesy of Sahil Aneja, a New Delhi based menswear designer who has been known to push the envelope every now and then when it comes to reimagining a classic suit. © Instagram/theanisha The suit that Shahid is wearing is traditional only in terms of its silhouette, which, to be quite honest, is hard to take note of, thanks to the zany and eccentric print. © Instagram/theanisha As for his choice of accessories, this is a classic example of why, more often than not, less is indeed more. A very basic watch from Tommy Hilfiger is perhaps the best thing that could have been added to the suit, and that's exactly what Shahid did. The watch, with its minimalistic, but overtly pronounced dial size does work well with the ensemble. © Instagram/theanisha And finally, there are the black, studded lace-ups that Shahid has paired with the ensemble. They certainly add an edge to his ensemble and complements the suit itself, rather well. They seem to be a bespoke pair of lace-ups from Shutiq. © Viral Bhayani The studs sit really well against the patent leather that makes up for most of the shoe's construction. © Viral Bhayani For men who are all set to get hitched this year, or are even invited to a wedding, this is a really nice look to base their outfits on. Kudos Shahid & Anisha! View the full article
  18. As a 28-year-old man about to build a Lego set the box of which says 'Age 9+', I told myself the same thing I'd been telling everyone else for years as far as Harry Potter is concerned: "This is not for kids." My firm belief was reiterated once I opened the box and saw the contents inside. Nope, no way can a 9-year-old finish building this monstrosity, I told myself. © MensXP It was the biggest puzzle I'd ever seen in my life. To make things more exciting (and terrifying), this puzzle was 3D. Once I saw the actual Lego bricks and the instruction manual, I felt what Hermione probably felt before her OWLs - a strange mix of elation and anxiety. As much as I wanted to do it all by myself, I realized I probably will end up building it till the next morning and end up missing work. I did what a Dilli Ka Launda would inevitably do during a crisis - called up my homies. © MensXP As four of us finally sat down with a mission, it became evident that I was right. Just like non-Potterheads mock the Potterverse with jibes like 'How is a grown man like you still stuck on to Harry Potter?', while being absolutely clueless about the intricacies of the series that are anything but juvenile in nature, what lay in front of us was a full-blown project, that only intellect and focus could have carried through to completion. (Yes, the manual had explicit instructions, what's your point?) © MensXP We started out by building the characters. There were eight characters, and this particular set was based on the Goblet of Fire narrative. We had Dumbledore and the trio, Madame Maxime, Cedric Diggory, Viktor Krum, and Fleur Delacour. © MensXP We did have some unfortunate mixups that left us in splits, but we did manage to get them all out flawlessly. Interestingly, all of them had two faces - one happy and one sad that could be rotated (an irony how Professor Quirrell wasn't a part of the set tbh). © MensXP The attention to detail in the set, in all its minuscule cuteness, was astounding, to say the least. The smallest of the tables had about 20-25 parts to them and took quite some time to build. © MensXP This particular set was based on the Hogwarts Clock Tower, and every nook and corner had so many parts to them, that we ended up feeling like the founders themselves. © MensXP © MensXP The backside of the castle was open, and it contained familiar locations. It consisted of multiple elements from the castle, like Dumbledore's office and the Prefects' bathroom. © MensXP As we kept building, we kept discovering the other locations - the hospital wing, the Defence Against the Dark Arts class, as well as the enclosure where the Tri-Wizard Cup was placed. © MensXP It also contained the Yule Ball dance floor that was made of gears, that rotated. The characters could be placed on them, making actual pairs out of them. © MensXP After what seemed like 3 whole hours, we finally put it all together, and this is what it looked like. © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP Honestly, this low key felt like a real trip to the Hogwarts castle, while drowning us all in nostalgia. However, this also left us with a few questions about 4 men in their early '30s deriving so much pleasure and excitement out of something that is supposedly meant for kids' entertainment. I got in touch with Lego and ended up asking them about whether adults legit make up a part of their target audience, and was thrilled to find out that I was right. "The Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOL) are also very vital for us as they are our brand ambassadors and it is our constant endeavour to bring in various pop culture collaborations like Harry Potter, Stranger Things, Bugatti etc. which play a huge role in strengthening our bond with them. We have a wide gamut of challenging themes like Creator Expert, Technic™ and LEGO Ideas, which are fast-moving amongst AFOL. We are also launching the latest range of LEGO Star Wars in late 2019, which will be another interesting and awaited range for our adult fans", I was told. © MensXP Well, let's just say we all celebrated the fact that we finally did something constructive (literally) over the weekend to help us take a walk down the memory lane inside Hogwarts, while offering a much-required breather to our livers. It was a win-win! View the full article
  19. In a stadium where international teams struggle to make more than 150 runs in the first innings, the Indian cricket team went on to score 174 runs thanks to blistering knocks played by KL Rahul (52) and Shreyas Iyer (62) in the series deciding third T20I match against the visiting Team Bangladesh. #TeamIndia win by 30 runs to clinch the three-match series 2-1.#INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/vChBI1jjxW — BCCI (@BCCI) November 10, 2019 However, the game belonged to the young Indian bowlers who made up for their lack of experience with their raw energy and electrified the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium with a phenomenal display of brilliance with the white ball. Even though the spinners struggled with the amount of dew present on the field, Indian medium-fast bowlers, namely Shivam Dube and Deepak Chahar shone brightly during the crucial match and led their side to the series win. But the man of the hour has to be Chahar who not only took a hat-trick during the final overs of the match but also went on to register a staggering 6/7 figures on the scorecard. These stats are not only the 27-year-old cricketer's career best but also happen to be the best in the whole world when it comes to the shortest format of the game. The best bowling figures in T20I cricket! Take a bow Deepak Chahar ð¥ pic.twitter.com/3OGnB99h0n — ICC (@ICC) November 10, 2019 After removing two of the most talented top-order batsmen of the Bangladesh side in Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar on back to back deliveries in the third over, Chahar returned for his second spell in the middle of the game. Batsmen Mohammad Naim and Mohammad Mithun had formed quite the partnership and had brought their team back in contest after thrashing our spinners all around the ground. Just when the game seemed to be going out of Rohit Sharma's hands, the Agra-born delivered yet again and dismissed Mithun in the 13th over, thereby breaking the established partnership and sending one half of the threatening duo back to the dressing room.

A third wicket for Deepak Chahar, who now has figures of 3/3 ð¥ Bangladesh 110/3 after 13 overs. pic.twitter.com/ZxC7m9CqLR — ICC (@ICC) November 10, 2019 However, it was Chahar's third and final spell in the death overs was the most crucial one not only for himself by for the team as well. With Shivam Dube taking care of business and dismissing Naim, it was time for Chahar to hammer the final nail in the coffin and bring home the victory and that's exactly what he did. He scalped Shafiul Islam's wicket thanks to a KL Rahul catch at the boundary on his final ball of the 18th over. On the first ball of the 20th over, he dismissed Mustafizur Rahman thanks to a Shreyas Iyer catch and a yorker right into the base of the stumps to remove Aminul Islam to complete his hat-trick on the following delivery.

Former cricketers, BCCI officials and the fans of the Indian cricket team took a moment to congratulate the bowler on this unbelievable feat: Exceptional bowling by @deepak_chahar9! He bowled very smartly and used his variations well to pick up crucial wickets at crucial stages.

  20. If your grooming kit includes a trimmer, beard oil and wax, believe us, it's not enough and you definitely need to take it a notch higher with certain grooming essentials that you have been missing out on. It's not important that you end up buying a plethora of products but definitely have a good look at the ones that are going to offer benefits and help you look your best without having to spend a lot of time on it. Here are five grooming essentials that you have missed out on but should get your hands on, asap! 1. Use An SPF Moisturiser Yes, you have been using a moisturiser for your skin and that's a no brainer but slapping on an SPF one is going to shield you from the heavy UV rays. If you don't apply it, it will accelerate the ageing process and cause brown spots, plus wrinkles on your skin. Usage of a good moisturiser instead will help your skin stay hydrated at all hours. © Istock 2. Body Scrub The easiest way to exfoliate not just your face but also your body is a body scrub. It is that one grooming product that will lather up and scrub away all the dead skin cells. Use a product made with natural ingredients, that does not include microbeads as this will help your skin feel nourished for long. © Istock 3. Hand Cream Winter is here and so is the time for you to stock up on hand creams because believe us, your hands will be extremely dry in this season. Being concerned about your grooming regime is good but you can't neglect your hands, especially if your job is manual. Just take a small amount and massage your hands so it blends well into your skin. © Istock 4. Cuticle Cutter Taking care of your nails just with a nail cutter is never enough. It means that you need to care for your cuticles as well. The dead tissues tend to get accumulated in the bottom and it tends to peel off. You need to keep a check on it and simply nip the cuticles. Apply some hand cream post this method so your hands feel softer than ever before. © Istock 5. Nose Hair Trimmer Dressing up and shaping your beard can make you look sharp but neglecting your nose or ear hair will instantly dissolve the whole purpose. Use a dedicated trimmer that's designed to clear the unsightly growth. It's an absolute must for your grooming kit! © Istock View the full article
  21. After delivering a rather disappointing title in 2017, the developer 'Ghost' is back with another NFS game called Need For Speed Heat. I downloaded and started playing the game with absolutely no expectations whatsoever, but I was pleasantly surprised by the gameplay. A lot of things in the new Need For Speed Heat feels like it's been done the right way. Of course, I haven't spent a lot of time playing this game just yet, which is why this isn't the full review. In this story, I'll be highlighting a few of my favorite things about the game. The Miami-inspired Palm City © Need For Speed In Need For Speed Heat, you'll find yourself in Palm City, which is a Miami-inspired map. I'd say it's a good mix of both an urban setup and countryside visuals, making up for a really cool playground to race in. There are a lot of cool spots and places to check out and race in. I think it's also a good time to talk about the visuals of the game because they're great and make the whole city look that much better. You can cruise around the city either during the day or night. Day time is cool for racing without having to worry about the cops, but at night the city gets lit up and I think it's the perfect time to hit the roads. © Need For Speed Day-Night Experience The idea of driving during the day or night is not just to switch up visuals. It's tied to the core experience of the game. During the day, you'll be taking part in sanctioned street races on the marked course roads, so there's no need to worry about the cops. You win the race and walk out with the cash. Fair and simple. But at night, you'll see yourself taking part in illegal street racing to build up your rep. © Need For Speed It's the kind of street racing that's going to piss off the cops, making them want to bust you and pin you down. I think the whole idea of driving during both day and night is really cool. Honestly, the game feels more like a Forza Horizon when you're racing during the day and gives it the 'Most Wanted' vibes during the night. That's awesome. Cop Chases Are Tough While 2017's Need For Speed Payback put you on pre-set trail routes for cop chases, the Need For Speed Heat makes it right by letting you do your thing during the cop chases. Escape by whatever means necessary! The cop chases, however, are very tough. I have to admit that. I've only been involved in a few cop chases so far in the game, and I've only managed to escape them once. © Need For Speed Unless you have tuned your car well with the right upgrades, it's going to be a little tough to evade the cops. Yes, you can always try to get rid of them by throwing them off the road, etc. but you need to make sure that you keep an eye on the damage meter of your whip. Take too much damage and you'll wreck and get arrested. Tuning Your Whip I am also pretty happy with the game's comprehensive car tuning option. Yes, the upgrade system is a huge improvement and for someone like me who likes to spend a lot of time fine-tuning everything, this is a major win. Things like the ability to swap engines, play around with exhaust noise, etc. are super fun. Yes, a lot of people like to enjoy driving more than spending time inside the garage tuning a car, but I think it's part of the core experience and the developers have done a good job. © Need For Speed Besides the ones that I've mentioned above, I am pretty sure Need For Speed Heat has a lot to offer. I've only spent a couple of hours playing the game so far, so I am sure I'll be back with more interesting things about the title. As for my first impressions, I'd say the Need For Speed Heat is looking really good so far. View the full article
  22. 2020 is right around the corner, so it's time to start figuring out what you plan on achieving next year.

That said, buying a fitness band isn't exactly an easy thing to do, especially when there are a ton of options out there. There are a lot of things to consider like the price, features, tracking ability, and more.

The Mi Band 4 has a color AMOLED, making it the first Mi Band to have a colour panel. It can track pretty much all the basic metrics like your step count, sleep tracking, heart rate, calories burned, etc. It also has a great battery life, so you don't have to worry about charging it that often. Price: Rs 2,299 Honor Band 5 © YouTube/ Chigz Tech Reviews The new Honor Band 5 is the closest competitor of the Mi Band 4. It costs a little bit more but offers great value for money. It also sports a color AMOLED panel on the front and has the ability to track all your basic fitness and workouts just like the Mi Band 4. The highlight of the Honor Band 5 is that it can monitor SpO2 levels in the bloodstream, so you can assess how your body is adapting during workouts. Price: Rs 2,599 Amazfit Bip Lite Smart Watch © Amazfit Amazfit has a lot of good wearables on offer, and we think the Amazfit Bip Lite Smart Watch would be a good option for you in this budget. Not only is it a good smartwatch, but it also has a lot of fitness tracking options, making it a good option overall. It's comfortable to wear and it's 3 ATMA certified so you can wear it underwater up to 30 metres. The Amazfit Bip Lite can last for 45 days on a single charge, which is awesome.

  23. Xiaomi has established itself as a popular smartphone brand in the country with millions of users. It is probably the first name that comes to your mind when you think of buying a budget phone. Heck, we've recommended a lot of Xiaomi phones here at MensXP, be it under Rs 10,000 or Rs 20,000. Just like last year, and even the year before that, 2019 has been a good year for Xiaomi. The company launched well over 10 phones this year with the idea of offering a Xiaomi phone in every price segment. It's quite an overwhelming number if you think about it and given the number of choices, picking one can be confusing too. And, if you're wondering which is the best Xiaomi phone in 2019, here's a quick list to help you out - Redmi K20 Series © Xiaomi Xiaomi hardly launches a phone that costs over Rs 20,000 in India because there's not really a huge demand for it. But with the new Redmi K20 series, Xiaomi took the leap and unleashed two new phones that cost upwards of Rs 20,000. Today, both the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro are some of the best smartphones you can buy if you don't feel like splurging too much on a phone. These are not your typical budget Xiaomi phones. In fact, the Redmi K20 Pro is powered by a flagship processor, pitting it against the likes of OnePlus 7 series. Even the K20 is a superb phone if you want premium features like a full-screen display, a pop-up camera module, HDR-supported panel, fast-charging and more. Redmi Note 8 Pro © Xiaomi Xiaomi's Redmi Note series is just as popular today as it was a few years ago when the Redmi Note 3 arrived. The new Redmi Note 8 Pro, in fact, is so good that we think it's a no-brainer if your budget is under Rs 15,000. The Redmi Note 8 Pro is Xiaomi's first phone with a quad-camera setup with a 64MP shooter. The Redmi Note 8 Pro also looks stunning, has a great display, a huge 4,500 mAh battery, and the new Helio G90T processor. What else can you ask for Rs 14,999? Seriously, this a kick-ass phone and hence it gets an easy recommendation from us if you're looking to buy a phone under Rs 15,000. You can read our full review of the Redmi Note 8 Pro right here. Redmi Note 8 © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Like we mentioned, Xiaomi has a good phone in quite a few price segments and we think the Redmi Note 8 should be your pick if your budget is Rs 10,000. It brings most of the cool features offered by the Redmi Note 8 Pro, but at a lower price. There's a quad-camera setup, it's got a powerful processor, great battery and good looks too. We'd have recommended the Redmi Note 7 Pro or the Note 7S under Rs 10,000, but the Note 8 is the one you should pick. Read our full review of the Redmi Note 8 here. Redmi 8 © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Redmi 7, which Xiaomi launched earlier this year, was a great entry-level phone. But its successor, the Redmi 8, that came out recently, is an even better phone. At Rs 7,999, it has a lot going for it like a dual-camera setup, a 5,000 mAh battery with fast-charging, an impressive design, and more. It's a great option for people who're maybe buying their first phone and don't want to splurge too much. Here's our full review of the Redmi 8. Honorable Mention © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Besides the ones that we mentioned above, we think there are a lot of other good Xiaomi phones out there. Obviously, we can't list out all of them, but we think these two devices are worth mentioning while talking about the best Xiaomi phones. The Mi A3 is for those who hate Xiaomi's MIUI software experience and want a pure version of Android. By the way, the phone also looks good and has good cameras to compete with others in 2019. Check out our full review of the Mi A3 here. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer And lastly, we have none other than the POCO F1. Yes, this isn't a 2019 release, but it's crazy how people are still buying it. In fact, the phone is now available at an attractive price tag of just Rs 14,999, making it a great alternative to the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Look, we're not sure if Xiaomi will bring the POCO F2 anytime soon, but we're glad that the POCO F1 is still relevant in 2019. Check out its review here. View the full article
