  1. As the ICC World Cup 2019 continues to progress despite the ruthless rains of England taking away half the fun from the quadrennial tournament this year, the Australian cricket team must find solace in the fact that they are currently atop the points table of the Cricket World Cup. The reigning world champions have won all but one of the five matches that they have played during the ongoing round-robin contest and surprisingly be lucky when it comes to no downpours during their time on the field. Their one loss in the initial five games came at the hands of the World Cup favourites, the Indian cricket team, which thanks to a brilliant ton by Shikhar Dhawan, were off to a great start and ended up tallying a massive 352, a total that turned out to be too much for the cricketers from Down Under to keep up with. ð¯ for Shikhar Dhawan! ð What a knock this has been for India! #INDvAUS LIVE ð https://t.co/tdWyb7lIw6 pic.twitter.com/BBVFxYcKH5 — ICC (@ICC) June 9, 2019 The match however was not talked about because of Gabbar's masterful 117-run innings. It rather became the talk of the town because of the audience calling out the former Australian skipper, Steve Smith for what he did one year ago. That's right, the crowd which was extremely hostile towards Team India's southernmost rivals, tried to rile up Smith with the chants of “cheater, cheater”, referring to the infamous sandpaper-gate during a Test series against South Africa in March 2018. Smith, who was captaining the Australian side back then alongside David Warner as his vice-captain, was suspended from international cricket for one whole year as punishment. I would give anything to have this behind me and be back representing my country. But I meant what I said about taking full responsibility as Captain of the team. I won't be challenging the sanctions. They've been imposed by CA to send a strong message and I have accepted them. — Steve Smith (@stevesmith49) April 4, 2018 Caring for his opponent, Kohli, who was on strike when the chants began, decided to reach out to the crowd, stopped them from defaming the talented Australian cricketer and instead asked them to cheer for him. With India fans giving Steve Smith a tough time fielding in the deep, @imVkohli suggested they applaud the Australian instead. Absolute class ð #SpiritOfCricket #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/mmkLoedxjr — ICC (@ICC) June 9, 2019 “If I was in a position where something had happened with me, and I'd apologised and accepted it, and came back and still I would get booed, I wouldn't like it either,” the Indian skipper said in the post-match press conference. Steve Smith's comments about Virat Kohli's wonderful gesture towards him recently came to the fore when his side defeated Dimuth Karunaratne's Sri Lankan team by a huge 87-run margin on Saturday. During the post-match conference Smith said: “It was a lovely gesture by Virat." "It doesn't really bother me what the crowds do to be perfectly honest. I am just blocking it all out but it was a lovely gesture from him," he added. © Twitter Stepping into the field with one of the most competitive minds in all of sports, Virat Kohli understands where Smith was coming from. What he had done one year ago, he regrets truly. His deeds had brought his country shame and he realises that. Even though the 30-year-old claims that he shuts his mind off to the crowds, not getting bothered by something toxic feels highly unlikely. What is great to see is that Smith seems to be finding his form back. The Oval saw the cricketer score big (73 off 59 balls) alongside skipper Aaron Finch's game-winning 153-run stint on the pitch. It is always great to see a brilliant player make a comeback, especially when he has paid for his sins in full and has an entire nation and a couple of friends backing him up.
  2. Brad Pitt is on a roll! One of his upcoming movies has already got everyone so excited- I'm talking about 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' just FYI - and now, his next movie has also got everyone talking. We cannot get enough of space movies and everyone in Hollywood also apparently knows that. This is why we get a great movie after another and this new one seems very exciting, and not just because it has Brad Pitt. The first trailer for 'Ad Astra' came out yesterday and it's getting a lot of positive reactions. While the trailer does give out a little too much than it probably should have, it's still great to get an idea of what is basically happening in the movie before watching it. So, it's not that big of a deal. Basically, Brad Pitt plays astronaut Roy McBride who travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. So, pretty basic right? No high stakes? Yep. Even the trailer looks so cool. Our first poster for #AdAstra, starring Brad Pitt, in theaters September pic.twitter.com/dBjr9CJPcN — Asad Ayaz (@asadayaz) June 5, 2019 I'm in as well. Brad Pitt in a juicy role. Space.

  3. Remember Payal Rohatgi, the social media sensation? Well, I hope you detected the sarcasm in that very statement. But why am I talking about her? That's because she's back again, to indulge in some mindless banter, to irk the proletariats in the worst way possible. It's just her visible affinity to waste time over Twitter and other forms of social media, and this time around, she's outdone herself again. © Twitter Recently, over a Tweet, the 'damsel in distress' spoke about the age-old practice of Sati and called Raja Ram Mohan Roy a traitor. And now, she demands a so-called 'Hindu' nation. Twitter is, of course, furious over her lopsided thought process, but we can't help and substantiate a good amount of humour through her thread. Truth Behind Sati Pratha in India https://t.co/x1vn5l6Xcy via @YouTube #Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society with d help of traitors like Raja Ram who Britishers used 2 divide society made Sati into an evil forceful practiceð — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 26 May 2019 So, as we all know, Raja Ram Mohan Roy was a social reformer, known for his efforts to abolish the practice of Sati and child marriage. But after Payal tweeted a video on the Sati tradition named 'the truth behind Sati Pratha', she called Ram Mohan Roy a traitor , saying "#Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati [movie] during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society, with the help of traitors like Raja Ram, who Britishers used to divide society, made Sati into an evil forceful practice. (sic)" She also called him a 'chamcha', saying the Britishers used him to 'defame the Sati Tradition' © Twitter Her Tweet said: "No he was a chamcha to Britishers who used him to defame the Sati tradition. Sati tradition was not compulsory but was introduced to prevent the prostitution of Hindu wives by the hands of Mughal invaders. It was the woman's choice. #FeministsofIndia Sati was not regressive." No he was a chamcha to Britishers who used him to defame the Sati tradition. Sati tradition was not compulsory but was introduced to prevent the prostitution of Hindu wives by the hands of Mughal invaders. It was the woman's choice. #FeministsofIndia Sati was not regressive ð https://t.co/sALLK2lALF — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 25 May 2019 Not only did her Tweets rile her followers and other people, it created havoc on Twitter, because let's face it, extremist views seldom make it out alive, but because we're a democracy, of course, she has the will and freedom to say whatever she wants, honestly. But of course, Twiteratti will not let this one go! Behan, bas kar de yaar. https://t.co/vcqXTRtjrm — Abhishek BaxiابھÛØ´ÛÚ© ‏‎‎ à¤à¤­à¤¿à¤·à¥à¤ (@baxiabhishek) 26 May 2019 I think you are mixing jauhar with Sati system.

India didn't require lessons on Science. Heard about DRDO, ISRO and their missions ? How India producea cheapest pharmaceuticals? India owns fastest supersonic missile in form of Brahmos. — भारत नरà¥à¤¶ (@ResoluteAction) 26 May 2019 Holy smokes! Where did this one come from? Raja Ram Mohan Roy, the great reformist, is now a “chamcha” of the British! Wonderful. Here come new India's historians. https://t.co/ToBeE68Hme — Pritish Nandy (@PritishNandy) 26 May 2019 The practise was never a norm and was never prevalent ...it was there practised by certain jaati groups(caste is a wrong word) and not by all ...it was already dying the time british entered ...this thing is taught to beat the hindu side rather unfairly — Aryaveer (@Aryavee83533418) 26 May 2019 Jauhar and Saka never happened when Rajput fought with any Hindu king as even after defeating the enemy king, women and children were given due respect. Jauhar happened only when Rajputs fought with Mughals or Afghans, as when Mughals defeat them, they treated women like animals. — भारत नरà¥à¤¶ (@ResoluteAction) 26 May 2019 In response to this outpour, India's darling stated that she was not trying to glorify Sati Pratha, while raising the issue of Triple Talaaq. "I am not glorifying it, I am putting across the history of its origin. It was due to Mughal invaders that #Sati started in the 1st place. Understand your history. And yes no one is practising it NOW nor am I asking anyone to practice it. But #TripleTalaq is still ON. (sic)" - Payal Rohatgi on Twitter. Apart from her two cents on the custom of Sati, Payal also went ahead to demand a 'Hindu' nation! हम हिनà¥à¤¦à¥ à¤à¥ भॠà¤à¤ दà¥à¤¶ à¤à¤¾à¤¹à¤¿à¤ à¤à¤¿à¤¸à¥ हम à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¤¾ दà¥à¤¶ à¤à¤¹ सà¤à¥à¥¤à¤ªà¥à¤°à¥ विशà¥à¤µ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ भॠदà¥à¤¶#HinduNation नहà¥à¤ हà¥à¥¤à¤¹à¤° दà¥à¤¶ मà¥à¤ हम #minority हà¥à¤ à¤à¤° à¤à¥à¤ भॠदà¥à¤¶ भारत à¤à¥ हिनà¥à¤¦à¥ सà¤à¤¸à¥à¤à¥à¤¤à¤¿ à¤à¥ नहà¥à¤ समà¤à¤¸à¤à¤¤à¤¾ as #Hinduism à¤à¤¾ origin हिà¤à¤¦à¥à¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤¾à¤¨ मà¥à¤ तॠहà¥à¤à¥¤ So secular हà¥à¤à¤° भॠभारत #HinduRashtra हॠसà¤à¤¤à¤¾ हॠð pic.twitter.com/Rat6OADT7X — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 26 May 2019 Okay, basically, what she's trying to say is even if India's a secular country, it should predominantly be a Hindu nation (really?) because only Hindus are entitled to a sense of belonging here. While ranting, she also chose to say Muslims aren't a minority anymore and it's unfair to call them that!

While secularism is the right way to embrace our nation's ideology, we do have people amidst us who scorn it on a mere whim, failing to understand the concept of a secular democracy.
  4. The much awaited laugh riot of the year, 'De De Pyaar De', released today amidst much hype. The movie is a family entertainer which deals with the issue of a 50-year-old man falling in love with a 26-year-old woman and facing disapproval from his family and ex-wife. The movie stars Ajay Devgn in the lead role, with Tabu playing the role of his ex-wife and Rakul Preet playing his love interest. So far, the audience reactions have been pretty good and people are calling it a laugh riot. In all, #DeDePyaarDeð is a Complete Package offering a real take on relationships without being stupid or preachy. It's different & defo a cut above the rest from most Bollywood clichès we have seen over the years.

It has more dramatic plot than 20s movies. Was not a good watch. However @Rakulpreet was looking stunning throughout. #tabu steal the show with acting. #DeDePyaarDeReview — Sayantan Halder (@sayantanhalder) May 16, 2019 However, the movie does star Alok Nath who was a prime accused in the #metoo movement and that is questionable. Also, some viewers felt the movie was misogynistic or just created a certain kind of animosity towards women. #DeDePyaarDeReview An absolutely crappy and misogynistic film. Wheres the alt right's outrage over this film since tabu ties a rakhi to ajay and then sleeps with him. (Hindu customs anyone)? Or no outrage since ajays a modi supporter? — Kabir Dev (@kabirraga272) May 17, 2019 However, you can watch it for yourself and decide. Overall, the movie has received a lot of positive response so far.
  5. Everyone loves Keanu Reeves, the guy is just so amazing, and everyone loves him as John Wick ever since he took on the role in 2014 and avenged his dog. Now, the third movie in the franchise - 'John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum' - is almost here, but some people have already watched it and it's no surprise that people are loving the movie. Ever since the first promo picture came out - Keanu Reeves with Halle Berry in a desert with two dogs - people have been so excited for the movie. And, concerned about the dogs, of course. Welcome to the next chapter. #JohnWick3 pic.twitter.com/qtvXepVEvw — John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (@JohnWickMovie) December 19, 2018 People are also calling it the best movie in the franchise so far, and well, nothing builds the excitement more than that. #JohnWick3 is an absolute blast and the best film of the @JohnWickMovie franchise so far REVIEW: https://t.co/2fHZlkcn1Q pic.twitter.com/ZI8oocVzUn — UPROXX (@UPROXX) May 10, 2019 Some people disagree.

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 is pretty fucking badass. Maybe the most violent studio movie since HOSTEL: PART II. The Boban fight scene RULES & I don't even know if that was one of the top 3 sequences. Loved Mark Dacascos, but everyone is good -- Halle, McShane, Lance, Fishburne, Huston. — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) May 10, 2019 Now, that's cool.

This movie DEFINITELY has more problems than a lot of critics are pointing out imo — Mike Rougeau (@RogueCheddar) May 11, 2019 That's good. John Wick 3 takes a page (and some actors) from The Raid in its relentless action and hard-hitting choreography. There's some plot wheel spinning that kept it from being perfect, but I just love this world and enjoy spending time in it. — Eric Vespe (@EricVespe) May 11, 2019 That's the tweet. #JohnWick Chapter 3 is the best movie ever. That's it, that's the whole tweet. — Brandon Katz (@Great_Katzby) May 10, 2019 Finally, please. I saw that they're handing out trading cards for Detective Pikachu. I hope for John Wick 3 they hand out guns. — Clipper Of Wings (@Exfatvirgin) May 11, 2019
  6. The head coach of the Indian Premier League franchise Rajasthan Royals, Paddy Upton, is known for his work on understanding the mental condition of the athletes from all over the world and finding solutions to get them out of whatever sort of mental illness they may be suffering through. Holding prestigious certifications in sports science and sports psychology, Upton is regarded as a respectable man in the cricket fraternity, who even worked with the Men in Blue to improve the mental conditioning of the players present in the dressing room. In his new book called 'The Barefoot Coach', Upton talks about different mannerisms of the players and puts forward unique ways of providing assistance to these athletes in making them perform better on the field. © Reuters However, in one particular passage in the book, Upton touches upon former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir and despite the fact that he was one of the most successful cricketers of his time who provided loads of glorious moments for Team India, called him “one of the weakest and mentally most insecure”. Upton wrote: “I did some of my best and least effective mental conditioning work with Gambhir, the International Test Cricketer of the Year in 2009. He would be in mental agony about losing his wicket and about needing to fix things. He was so riddled with insecurities, doubts, and vulnerabilities. He was one of the most negative people I have ever worked with.” Having being called mentally insecure, the cricketer turned politician responded to Upton's analysis with utmost class and grace. “I don't see anything sinister with what Paddy wrote. He is a top guy and I see this as his personal opinion,” India Today quoted Gambhir. “He just missed two important things: firstly, he didn't state all the other facts and secondly, he failed to explain the perspective. Anyone would like to have a guy who is not satisfied with his current achievements.” “So, in short, I wasn't satisfied with a 100 and wanted to have more.” © Reuters There is no doubt that Gambhir was highly critical of his performance much like a lot of athletes who talk about their negatives just to make themselves better and improve those specific parts of their game. Even internationally, athletes like Kobe Bryant and Cristiano Ronaldo have been found criticising themselves for missing that game-winner shot or being sloppy on capitalising on a goal-scoring opportunity. So, maybe calling Gambhir all of that was probably uncalled for. However, Gambhir managed to handle it like a champ.
  7. In the modern era of cricket, technology has slowly and gradually become an integral part of the game. Whether it's a run-out, stumping or even a LBW shout, the implementation of Decision Review System (DRS) in the game has aided fairplay significantly. Minimising the human errors, DRS gives an opportunity to both the batting and bowling side to attain a fair decision from the umpires. But, in the ongoing Pakistan Cup 2019, a cricketer became the butt of all jokes after calling for a DRS over a clear-cut dropped catch. For someone who was once compared with Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Pakistani batsman Ahmed Shehzad hasn't really lived up to the hype in recent times. © Twitter The right-hander's inconsistent performances saw him getting dropped from the Pakistani line-up. His last appearance in the Pakistani jersey dates back to June 2018 when he played in a T20 International (T20I) against Scotland. And then, a doping violation saw him getting banned for four months by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). But, if the sack from the national team wasn't enough to derail his reputation, Shehzad's latest antics further dented his rapport with cricket fans. During a clash between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federal Areas, the former were cruising in their chase of 269 runs when Khushdil Shah played a mighty heave towards deep midwicket. Shehzad, who was patrolling that region, got underneath the ball, but made an epic blunder to drop what looked like a regulation catch. Review please #PakistanCup pic.twitter.com/EdXnFKyp3b — Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) April 3, 2019 If dropping a simple catch wasn't enough, Shehzad, then, suffered a hilarious brain fade as he signalled for a review. The replays showed Shehzad clearly bottling the catch on atleast two efforts before the ball touched the ground. Shehzad's DRS call was more of a desperate move to avoid humiliation that came with dropping a dolly - something that he has done in the past. Back in 2015, during a clash between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Shehzad had dropped Lahiru Thirimanne, but told the on-field umpires that it was a clean take. However, the replays clearly showed that the ball had touched the ground. Here's a look at how cricket fans reacted to Shehzad's howler of a DRS call: inko lgta hai technology itni advance ho gyi hai ki jo catch reality me na pkda jaye wo shayd TV me pakda gya ho ð — Punkð (@punk_hardik) April 4, 2019 What an actor thoughððð — Prachi | CSK ð (@PrachiNotDesai) April 3, 2019 Nxt level honesty.ððð — Parag (@Parag171292) April 3, 2019 Oh lord, he did something similar against Sri Lanka.

I think I've seen it all now. — Noddy1988 (@ToxicKebab) April 3, 2019
  8. Comic book and superhero movies are all the rage these days, what with so many incredible movies releasing. But, since we cover so much Marvel and 'Avengers' (who can blame us?), here's us taking a little break and talking about 'Shazam'. This is for all those people complaining about all the 'Captain Marvel' articles and how we don't cover DC enough. Enjoy! So, the movie is releasing on April 5th and so it was time for the first, spoiler-free reviews to come out and they're all positive so far. The movie is basically getting a unanimous thumbs up from people who have watched it. There's a special mention for Zachary Levi and how brilliantly he basically portrays a young adolescent. It's entertaining, joyful, and sweet. Moreover, people are saying it completely understands the superhero genre. My spoiler-free #review thread of #Shazam The Donner's Superman of our generation, Shazam has so much heart and goes back to the original core of the superhero genre. This movie makes us believe in a world where Superheroes could exist and be loved at the same time. PT 1/15 pic.twitter.com/wh4TFrSPcn — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 This is a long review thread. There are many fantasy elements though, but inserted in a real world, with relatable people and situations. In such a way that you really believe that all those things could coexist. Basically what the #DCEU tried since #ManOfSteel, but is Shazam who better hit the goal. PT 2/15 — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 Let's hope so. The cast is perfect in their characters having the time of their lives, and there is chemistry everywhere. Mark Strong delivers a good villain, the supporting characters are awesome. I loved Billy's adoptive parents. Zachary Levi will get the praises he truly deserves. PT 10/15 — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 To summarise, #Shazam is a triumph, understands the superhero genre like few did recently. Amazing cast and storytelling. An emotional rollercoaster. As said in my reaction, a Gift for the genre, and a winner for WB. PS: wait til the end of the last bunch of credits. PT 15/15 — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 Seems promising. #Shazam (2019) SPOILER-FREE REVIEW! This movie reminded me of my childhood. I HATED MY CHILDHOOD! That Billy Batson is a MENACE-IN-TRAINING! I yelled, I laughed, I may have even shed a tear. 7/10 pic.twitter.com/2Oaof7gWnN — J. Jonah Jameson Reviews (@jonah_reviews) March 25, 2019 That's exciting. #Shazam ably carries the ball forward for DC's movie universe from #Aquaman. Big action, big laughs, big heart underneath, with terrific star turns from both @AsherAngel & @ZacharyLevi. (I also have to give it up for how well the marketing kept the best surprises under wraps!) — Zaki Hasan (@zakiscorner) March 24, 2019 Well, that's good. My Non-Spoilery thoughts on SHAZAM! SHAZAM is the 1-2-3 punch of the DCCU solo movies, continuing the streak from WONDER WOMAN to AQUAMAN to this fun Big Red Cheese-y flick! @ZacharyLevi @AsherAngelâ© â¦@Jgrazerofficialâ© are all perfect! Will watch EVERY movie in this franchise! pic.twitter.com/q0uYHphqGf — Dan Slott (@DanSlott) March 24, 2019 That's one way to put it. Ain't talked about #Shazam much but I think if you don't “like” this movie or find it “entertaining” you're probably dead on the inside lmfao. — 3-6 Mafia Gang (@MichaelHJordan) March 25, 2019 Can't wait! Saw an early screening of #Shazam . Probably one of the best Christmas movies ever made, right up there with Die Hard and Iron Man 3. Can't wait to see it again April 5! @ponysmasher is amazing! — Funmi Adetola (@FunmiAdetola1) March 24, 2019 Let's hope so. The fun thing is, #SHAZAM is basically creating a VERY new version of the whole mythos for an audience that will mostly have never heard of it, but oldschool/hardcore fans wondering how far/"deep" it's going to go will know like 2 minutes in... and then still be impressed. — Bob Chipman (@the_moviebob) March 24, 2019 Okay then. #Shazam is easily the best DC Comics movie of the current editions -- an absolute blast from start to finish and impressive balance of fun, heart, and terror. Full review: https://t.co/a2OVm4ojpa pic.twitter.com/LXiSzqx6H2 — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) March 23, 2019 It's full of surprises! WB deserves a serious round of applause for the level of restraint they exercised with the marketing. That's not an exaggeration, it's unheard of for a CBM......and that's the closest you'll get to a spoiler from me. Incredible. #Shazam — TheFliteCast (@TheFliteCast) March 23, 2019 Oh wow. #Shazam isn't just a great superhero movie, it's the best DCEU movie. Even better than Aquaman. Definitely going to see it a few times before Avengers comes out! pic.twitter.com/DC7p8ynnCS — Jeremy Conrad (@ManaByte) March 24, 2019
  9.

  10. Whatever PM Modi says or does, it trends. That's the rule of Twitter in India. So of course, him launching a new campaign was bound to be talked about, no surprise there. PM Modi launched a 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign this morning and shared a video and message on Twitter. Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation. But, I am not alone. Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar. Everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar. Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 16, 2019 The video is basically a song with lyrics showcasing the government's initiatives. In the tweet, he says that today, everyone's a Chowkidar and well, now people are tweeting #MainBhiChowkidar. This particular hashtag soon became the top worldwide trend on Twitter and his tweet alone has thousands and thousands of replies, retweets, and likes. Soon, people started tweeting using the hashtag saying every Indian is a chowkidar today because “Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar, everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar.” Now everyone's proud to be a chowkidar. Proud to be a Chowkidar. #MainBhiChowkidar https://t.co/XXwo5hxkrb — B.S.

  11. The much-awaited comic caper of the year, 'Total Dhamaal', has finally released and hit the theatres today. This is the third instalment of the hilarious 'Dhamaal' series and the first reactions to the movie are already out. So the majority of the votes call it a baseless comedy (it's no rocket science to know that really) but still it's a must-watch because it is hilarious. #TotalDhamaal is brainless and nonsense... But it entertains you big time... Oh man I never laughed like this form quite some time.. Just hilarious.. @ajaydevgn pic.twitter.com/1EB8R5yUxn — Jyoti jangid (@Jyotijangid11) February 22, 2019 Total dhamaal full on entertainment Zabardast Comedy with Humour ka Zordaar Tadka #Runforit #TotalDhamaal — Bhagchand kumawat (@Bhagchandkumaw2) February 22, 2019 One of the main reasons besides the star cast that the movie is doing so well is Indra Kumar's direction and the fact that there has been no family entertainment in the biggest time. Still struggling to set a weekend plan??watch #TotalDhamaal... it's a total family entertainer. Laughed my guts out. Go with family or friends...trust me you will not be disappointed ð — MariamK (@MariamK59) February 21, 2019 #TotalDhamaal is a complete package of family entertaining movie. And you've to take your kids for this movie bcoz they will crazily laugh out loud. And who doesn't want to see the million dollar expressions. @foxstarhindi @ADFFilms #TotalDhamaalReview @RelianceEnt — Sourabh Das (@sourabhdas90) February 22, 2019 So when you watch a comedy movie, which is mainly based on slapstick humour, you allow the storyline to get a pass. Seems like 'Total Dhamaal' has lived up to its franchise's name. Despite flaws, and a few over the top sequences, #TotalDhamaal is a fair clean entertainer that can be enjoyed with the entire family. It's definitely an improvement over #DoubleDhamaal. Should cruise past the Rs 100 crore mark as per my understanding! 3 Stars! #TotalDhamaal — Himesh (@HimeshMankad) February 22, 2019 #TotalDhamaal #onewordreview: blockbuster ð£ð£ð¥ð¥ð¥ð¥ð¥ Superstar #ajaydevgn come with another blockbuster!!#AnilKapoor #MadhuriDixit #Riteishd #ArshadWarsi #jaavedjaaferi #imsanjaimishra they're too good! 4.5/5 ððððð pic.twitter.com/3pHnKWJHft — #TotalDhamaal (@JangidGulab) February 22, 2019 Looks like we all need a good weekend plan now. The movie is already being predicted to cross the Rs 100-crore mark, so make sure you have a plan in place for a chilled out weekend.
  12. You know how sometimes something very absurd and unexpected happens and you're convinced you're in the weirdest timeline? Well, the Indian political parties are doing exactly that right now and I'm like 98% sure we really are in some alternate universe, and it's because of all the rap videos and memes by BJP, Congress, and AAP which are flooding the social media. We all know the elections are coming, so basically, BJP released what seems like a 'Gully Boy'-inspired rap video calling out Congress and its party head Rahul Gandhi. Parties directly targeting each other is not unusual and thanks to social media, we are all a part of it now and honestly, this year's elections will be a social media battle that will give everyone a lot of second-hand embarrassment. Coming back to the rap, it's straight up called 'Congress Se Azadi' so no one accidentally misses the point. With lyrics like 'Baaki poor desh doobe, inki naiya paar hai na' and 'akela insaan fir gaadi teri chaar kyun? Ghar me hain chaar fir room tere aath kyun?', it's hard to miss that BJP has gone all out in calling out the entire Gandhi family. While @RahulGandhi will stay up all night wondering what new lies to peddle tomorrow morning, we leave you with this goal for 2019. Have a happy friday night, people! :) pic.twitter.com/WOXOJ1QPYO — BJP (@BJP4India) February 8, 2019 And, it obviously ended with Modiji, of course. Then comes Congress' reply and it's literally the last thing anyone would ever expect. Remember the new meme involving Nancy Pelosi sarcastically clapping at Donald Trump? Yep, Congress used that viral gif. pic.twitter.com/7OOgHG75Za — Congress (@INCIndia) February 8, 2019 And, looks like AAP didn't want to be left behind, so they just chimed in with this- pic.twitter.com/WvTmEvhUqF — AAP (@AamAadmiParty) February 8, 2019 Honestly, what is even happening anymore? Someone even pointed out the hypocrisy. A song which has a chorus of the slogans chanted by JNU students during protests. You know, the same ones which BJP folks considered a seditious act? Now Bhakts are like, "Oh hey, such a cool rap to diss the Congress! Yaaay!" https://t.co/KjNCeepXVi — that civics guy (@Memeghnad) February 9, 2019
  13. Social media is a bizarre place. Here anything and anyone under the sun is just a click away from going viral. From dancing uncle, chai peelo aunty, dhinchak Pooja, wink queen Priya to an egg (yes even an egg) can break the internet and get the world to talk about them. Recently, a picture of a bunch of kids went viral that has left people emotional and teary-eyed. © Twitter "You're only as happy as you choose to be," said Boman Irani about this picture, which is now being termed as the 'Selfie of the Year'. Honestly, we couldn't agree any more. While most of us crib about things we don't have, these kids with their innocent smiles teach us how one can be truly happy and content with whatever they have. “You're only as happy as you choose to be”. A saying that holds true for one and all!! And I'm sure this selfie deserves more likes than most. pic.twitter.com/KafEzq3mg8 — Boman Irani (@bomanirani) February 3, 2019 This heartwarming picture has since then touched a million hearts as both commoners and Bollywood celebrities continue to share it on social media. I'm sharing this image that came in on text cause d unbridled innocence n joy of these lovely kids moved me n made me smile in equal measure Super image that asks questions If anyone can reliably locate these munchkins n d photog I'd love to personally send them something each pic.twitter.com/5JWBmixzSH — atul kasbekar (@atulkasbekar) February 3, 2019 From Boman Irani, Anupam Kher to Suniel Shetty, everyone posted about it. So did Bollywood's Shehenshah Amitabh Bachchan, but to point out something that most of us failed to notice. According to Big B, the picture is apparently photoshopped and he has his own reasons to think so. He wrote, ".. with due respect and apology .. i feel this is photoshopped .. notice that the hand that holds the chappal is different than the rest of his body in size .. to his other hand by his side !!" .. with due respect and apology .. i feel this is photoshopped .. notice that the hand that holds the chappal is different than the rest of his body in size .. to his other hand by his side !! — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) February 3, 2019 His post has left the internet divided. While some agree with him, there were some who corrected him and trolled him for calling it Photoshop. @ SrBachchan sir.. I think the slipper belongs to that another small boy.. See his one foot is on the ground with similar slipper and another one (since he has removed slipper) is hanging with the support.. I think this is genuine image with genuine innocence.. — Kinnari Bhatt (@KinnariBhatt) February 4, 2019 Is that all you noticed? Did you notice the abject poverty? Did you notice the abysmally raw deal they have been given by your generation? Did you notice their need to be like children in other countries not ruled by your friends and cronies? — RandomlyRandom (@RandomRoaming) February 4, 2019 @SrBachchan mr Bachchan you have time to debate about authenticity of a photo but when it comes to talking about Manikarnika aapko sanp soong gaya ð #WeLoveManikarnika — MANIKARNIKAðð»ð¹âï¸ (@LyshaRamesh24) February 4, 2019 Everything in India is not like Movies, Some things really exists @SrBachchan — Bhupinder SINGH (@d_Tranquilizer) February 4, 2019 With Due Respect, Could We Plz Call This Selfie Photoshopped Too? pic.twitter.com/rzivHXfvhs — Amandeep Gautamð®ð³ð®ð³ (@amndeep_gautam) February 5, 2019 Amitabh ji, i think u should go to shankar netralaya now...

  14. Folks, director Karan Johar has created history. Looks like he has roped in John Cena for his upcoming movie, 'Drive', because you legit can't see anything. For those who got the joke, let's move ahead and read the story and for those who didn't, GOOGLE it. Karan Johar just shared the first teaser of his upcoming film, 'Drive' starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez. By the looks of the teaser, the movie will have four cars in a lead role and the two that zoomed past the screen might have Jacqueline and Sushant in it, unless they are the new-age self-driven cars. © Dharma Productions There's legit nothing in the teaser, except for a black screen with the cars' headlights on. So, without further ado, let's take a look at how awesome Sushant and Jacqueline look (hypothetically) in this 23 seconds video. The teaser of 'Drive' is already driving us crazy, but it's the comment section on YouTube that is making us fall off our chairs laughing. From calling it 'Gareebo ka Fast and Furious' to demanding Salman Khan to be a part of it, people have some really hilarious reactions to the teaser. 'Drive', which is said to be an official remake of the 2011 American film of the same, is expected to release on June 28 and also stars Sapna Pabbi, Boman Irani, Pankaj Tripathi and Vikramjeet Virk in key roles.
  15. Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, 'Kedarnath' was released today, as it witnessed the debut of Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan and also stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead. The movie is based on the tragic Uttarakhand floods of 2013 and has a backdrop of an inter-faith love story. While the reactions to the movie have been mixed in terms of its storyline and the plot, the one thing that everyone agrees upon is the fact that Sara Ali Khan is here to stay and showed her prowess as a natural actor in 'Kedarnath'. WHAT A MOVIE!@_saraalikhan What a mind blowing Debut! In love with your performance!@itsSSR As always! Baffling Acting!#Kedarnath Do watch!

  16. Shah Rukh Khan is probably the most active 53-year-old on social media but, after all, he is a typical dad and can't help himself but post cute, adorable pictures of his kids online. Actually, most of his pictures are of his youngest son AbRam, as SRK loves to show off how cute he is. Yesterday, he shared a bunch of pictures of AbRam wearing a t-shirt with a rather interesting quote. View this post on Instagram For all the sons of the world...If your Mama is your Queen then there is no stopping you from being The Happy Prince. ( and an iPad loaded with games helps too ) A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Nov 9, 2018 at 9:01am PST Don't forget the caption – “For all the sons of the world...If your Mama is your Queen then there is no stopping you from being The Happy Prince. ( and an iPad loaded with games helps too )” Well, we always knew AbRam was a prince, but we thought it was because he's the son of none other than King Khan. But, no there are more reasons and SRK summed it up perfectly. He posted the same picture on Twitter as well with a lot of people replying – obviously – but also comparing both him and his son.

But whatever, SRK is the typical dad showing off his cute kid on the internet and we're here for it.
  17. In 1968, American poet and activist, Muriel Rukeyser was quoted asking a very pertinent question- "what would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open". The relevance of this quote today is unimaginable, with regard to the #MeToo movement. Women have been stepping out from years of sexual abuse and harassment and speaking boldly about facts they've been ruminating over, for ages now and that's what has made this movement powerful. Their previously unheard voices. © Twitter But we mustn't mistake this movement to be concentric to the urban elite or the upper middle class or the rich and the famous. Although, yes, the genesis was from Hollywood and it rippled all the way to Bollywood, it has also impacted smaller circles, cities and small town as well. Over the last couple of weeks, we've seen women bravely speak out against men with positions of power and take the storm head on. But there have also been women amidst us, who've spoken up against their not-so-known perpetrators, in the same capacity as the women who've spoken about prominent figures in society and it's their story too. What I am getting at is, the #MeToo movement might have been a wake-up call for the rich and the famous but the phenomenon hasn't stopped there and it has surely trickled down and made its way through the urban divide as well. © Twitter To classify #MeToo as a movement just for celebrities and figureheads is entirely unfair. Smaller fractions of society are feeling the heavy weight of the movement upon them too and women have come together to stand up for one another. Even though the movement is running parallel in two strata's of society, a lot of similarities in understanding and responding to the movement can be seen. The most obvious one is most men being in denial vicariously and unapologetically. © Twitter Another similarity to observe here is the fact that women are unanimously polarising the effect of the movement in a very concerted way, to say the least. Men and women alike are heading in a direction that I would like to call as the 'new world gender order', or at least the brink of it. No, I am not talking about any totalitarian government but a unique and precise gender identity that's taking precedence now. Gender roles are more defined, regardless of caste and creed. And it's only possible because an entire country is marching up and confronting the movement head-on, and not just a single strata of society. © Twitter According to a visualisation of the Google trends data, which shows the top cities searching for the #MeToo movement around the world, India tops the list. It's actually true. I don't know if it's because we're a heavily populated country and the search for these cases is more prevalent here or because patriarchy and basic conditioning is so deep-rooted in our upbringing, that everyone relates to the movement more substantially. NASA actually captured an image, as they did of India on Diwali, showing India as most lit up on the entire globe, corroborating the reach and the momentum of the movement, so to speak. Surprisingly though, Google hasn't listed Delhi, Bengaluru or Mumbai as the cities that are searching for #Metoo movement online, but you'll see Chicalim in Goa, Bhusawal in Maharashtra, Zirakpur in Punjab and Bhanwreli in Chattisgarh topping the search. While the movement is in full flow in bigger cities, smaller towns are actively trying to contribute to the movement too, by reading up as much of it, as they can on it. Statistically, rapes and cases of sexual harassment and assault are more prevalent in smaller towns and villages and this is the best piece of education the internet can impart, to women especially, who are subjugated to these crimes in the past, or the present and want to be heard. © Twitter Having said that, women in bigger cities, working in regular 9-5 jobs are also getting together and calling men out for their behaviour. They're forming smaller groups to fight for the movement together to bring the perpetrators out in the open. So, to be fair, calling the movement a movement for the 'privileged' is absolutely unfair. Anyone who has a voice can come forth and talk about their story, openly while knowing the consequences of openly talking about it, will always favour anyone who decides to do it.
  18. Ayushmannn Khurrana is a powerhouse of talent and with those handsome looks comes a full house of insane power in the actor. He can sing, dance and with his choice of movies, he has obviously proved that he can act pretty well. The latest movie getting him rave reviews is his latest outing 'Andhadhun'. The internet has given its nod to this mystery movie and people are loving it. #Andhadhun What a seat thriller. Brilllant Performance by @ayushmannk and #Tabu. Not a single scene is boring in the movie and suspence till the end is never expected. I request all people don't miss it. Full family entertainer GREAT THRILLER. ðððð/5 — ASHISH SHARMA (@aashishsharma64) October 4, 2018 #AndhaDhun Taut & gripping.. the impact which lingers long after the movie is over. This is without doubt @ayushmannk 's, best work so far. Loved it ..Highly recommended ! — suheem (@suheem) October 4, 2018 #Andhadhun is brilliant. I was literally on the edge of the seat throughout. Acting, writing, direction everything was topnotch. Loved seeing Pune on screen. — Reemz (@FawadFan4ever) October 4, 2018 While many movie critics have passed this one and there's not much of an opinion there, but you don't need that nod because Twitter is currently raving about everyone in the movie, including Tabu and Radhika Apte. Nice unpredictable entertaining movie 3.5* ...Every minute, second and millisecond counts, in the unpredictable, crazy ride that is #Andhadhun,your script selection is best | @ayushmannk #Tabu you were awesome @radhika_apte ð — P. Khatri (@PKhatri6) October 5, 2018 #Andhadhun - What a wicked film by the master Sriram Raghavan! @ayushmannk reinvents himself and gives the performance of a lifetime. @tabuism, @radhika_apte and Anil Dhawan are stellar. Don't miss it for anything!! it is a super hit. loveyatri will be flop. nepotism lose.. pic.twitter.com/PeXabruxMq — ashu (@ashutosh2369) October 5, 2018 Right up there with Johnny Gaddaar. Better performed, deeper. If you have to watch one Hindi film this year, #AndhaDhun is the one. Will make the Coens smile. Tabu is Queen! Ayushmann plays it so well that your interpretation of that bloody brilliant end will reveal who you are. — Sudhish Kamath (@SudhishKamath) October 4, 2018 So I guess it is indeed justified to say it is the best movie by far this year? #AndhaDhun is the best thriller suspense movie in the world of cinema by far. You cannot predict even a second what's going to be next. Neither can blink. A complete roller coaster ride in the end. @ayushmannk at his BEST. â¤ï¸ — L! (@Latayush) October 4, 2018 I'm giddy and delirious with joy after watching #AndhaDhun what a bloody good film!!! The best film of the year! @ayushmannk CAREER BEST and to think he has only just begun! @tabuism WOW! @radhika_apte perfect!!! Great cast! What writing!

Sriram Raghavan is a genius! @ayushmannk @radhika_apte @tabuism and the rest of the cast (especially the cop) are superlative. Hope this one is a massive success! — suyashtrivedi (@suyashtrivedi) October 4, 2018 Well, you should book your tickets, because I guess that's my cue to book mine at least.
  19. Disclaimer: No employee was hurt while writing this story. But this thread did hit us right in the feels. Did you know that in Austria, many companies have an 8 to 5 shift and people are encouraged to leave at 3 PM on Fridays? No? Did you know that the German government has certain regulations in place to ensure its citizens don't overwork themselves, such as not working more than 48 hours a week and no work on Sundays and national holidays? © Pexels Did you know that Amazon's India chief urged his colleagues and employees to stop responding to work mails or calls after 6 PM? No! Ok, do you know your boss might have bombarded your inbox with multiple messages and work mails as you read this story? Sadly, the latter happens to be the work-culture more of us are a part of. In this dynamic and fast-paced world with cut-throat competition, maintaining work-life balance is harder than that summer body you worked for. No matter how efficient you are in your job, there will always be something or someone because of which your boss will judge you and look down on you. This Twitter thread brilliantly documents the struggles of every Indian employee and the unrealistic expectations our bosses have from us. I absolutely despise how Indian companies and founders, with no concept of life-work balance, shame employees for taking leaves and having a life outside work. Calls on weekends, guilting a person during and post leave, infinite power games. Shameful. — Sukhada (@appadappajappa) August 26, 2018 It all started when a Twitter user named Sukhada, tweeted about how Indian companies have no work-life balance and shame the employees for taking leaves and having a life outside work, a scenario that most of us have experienced in our jobs. And of course, there are jerks who proudly claim that when they got married, they were at work THE VERY NEXT DAY. The day we stop having founders and bosses like this, we can perhaps *start* to talk about mental health at workplaces. — Sukhada (@appadappajappa) August 26, 2018 Her tweet opened a barrage of frustration of employees, which they had bottled up until now. I felt like I was back in a school atmosphere in my first job. Project heads the teachers and we the students. Also you either join in the company retreat or come to a empty office to feed biometrics 9 to 5. Also the brown-nosing𤦠— sakkir (@_whosane_) August 26, 2018 This is not just start-ups either. Established cos do the same - of course no one explicitly says 'come on weekends' but when the employees who take 1000 breaks & stay late to show off gets a promotion over those who work efficiently & leave on time, the msg is crystal clear. Sad — Maya Mahadevan (@mayamahadevan) August 26, 2018 I've had to report into extremely sadistic people. So this post is very triggering for me — Protima Rodrigues (@PEyogagirl) August 26, 2018 I guess 90% of professionals face this issue. When we work for them & sacrifice our woffs at times then it's OK with them. Few days of leave as if we asked for share in their shitty property. — NI3 (@NI3INDIAN) August 26, 2018 Do you guys love your job or do these stories sound similar to yours?
  20. WhatsApp has officially rolled out group calling feature on Android and iOS devices after the company launched voice and video call support back in 2016. The video and voice calling feature have been very receptive amongst users as users spend over 2 billion minutes on the platform's calling feature. © Whatsapp Now that the new group calling feature has rolled out, here's how you can use the new feature. Well, anything you do, make sure WhatsApp on your device has been updated in order to make use of this feature. After you've updated the app, here are the steps you need to follow. . Open WhatsApp from the home screen or your app drawer. . Click on the Calls Tab . Choose a contact from your list whom you want to call. (Video or Voice) . Once you are connected to a call, you can tap the add participant button on the top right corner. . Select the second contact from your list you wish to add on the call . You can add up to 4 participants in total in a single group call. Follow step 4 and step 5 each time. © Whatsapp WhatsApp mentioned in its blog that group calls are always going to be end-to-end encrypted, and they've designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions. This would probably be the most used feature by people who would like to communicate with more people at once. Would you use this feature on your phone? Let us know in the comments.
  21. In our nation today, eating beef is the biggest crime for which the consequences can be severe. Cows are sacred and are supposed to be worshipped, don't you know that? How dare anyone do anything to our 'gau mata'? Any 'crime' against cows is punishable by death, apparently, or at least that's what a lot of people have decided. So, since cows are the most important animal in the country, our beloved PM Narendra Modi decided to gift 200 cows to the nation of Rwanda, probably as a gesture of goodwill. But, someone at the PM's office might just lose their job for not doing their research properly. © Twitter This gift was a part of the 'Girinka scheme', an age-old cultural practice in Rwanda, where people gift cows to each other as a sign of respect and gratitude. Turns out, beef is a very popular food in Rwanda and it's safe to assume they won't use all of our desi 'gau matas' just for milk. Moreover, it's a gift and no one can object to what they do with them. So, where does that leave us? Everyone is confused now because of how bad the repercussions are to eating beef in India, so how exactly will our esteemed 'gau rakshaks' protect the Indian cows in Rwanda? Yes, we hope he's alright. A man got lynched because he was taking 2 cows from one village to another. I just heard that another man is taking 200 cows from India to Rwanda. I hope nothing happens to him. I pray for him! — Atul Khatri (@one_by_two) July 24, 2018 Where's the concern for cows now, huh? The 100 cows gifted to Rwanda by PM Modi, instead of providing milk might just become food! FYI - Rwandan's love to eat beef Modi ji... pic.twitter.com/oaUYdpvEwI — PrashantPratap Singh (@iPrashantSingh) July 24, 2018 Yes go, right now. Mass alert to all gau-rakshaks: Go protect these cows in Rwanda pls. Go. Go now. https://t.co/ZhTop5B2so — Meghnad (@Memeghnad) July 23, 2018 Master stroke, indeed.

UNESCO gives "Biggest Cow-Smuggler" award to Modi for smuggling 200 cows to Rwanda !#WahModiJiWah Dear bhakts plz dont lynch our PM Bcoz wo #ChowkidarNahiBhagidar hai.. pic.twitter.com/JzU0nkQjJO — Vinay Kumar Dokania (@VinayDokania) July 23, 2018 Fun fact! PM Modi, who is currently visiting Rwanda has promised to 'gift' 200 locally-sourced cows to a village. Fun fact: Rwanda consumes beef regularly, while in India, certain states have banned its consumption. — Er Firoz Alam (@Firoz4you) July 24, 2018 So great of him! Mr Modi has gifted 200 cows to Rwanda. They are overjoyed. They are beef eaters and this will feed many mouths in this poverty stricken country — ashok kumar (@akbundi) July 24, 2018

  23. Top three regrets of life – the plans we didn't make, the decisions we didn't take and the college days that will never come back! So guys, if you fall into the 18 to 24-year-old category, don't live for regrets, live for the moments and make the most of it, because truly, these days won't come back again. And if you aren't sure 'HOW', then we are ready with a list of cool must-dos that will make sure your prime days are the most memorable of your life. So, read on! 1. Travel More Pexels Of course, this is the most obvious must-do on your list but trust me when I say, this is the time to do it. Save up your pocket money, work part time and turn your travel dreams into reality (even if it's just travelling to Goa with the gang). Once you hit your 30s, life just starts bogging you down with responsibilities. You are stuck coordinating your travel plans with your family needs and it is a vicious cycle. 2. Don't Take Your College Life For Granted Pexels Your college days will never come back. EVER! So, don't put off any plans to meet your college friends. Ditch the lectures once in a while and make random plans with friends. Even if it just involves sitting together and binge-watching your favourite shows on Amazon Prime Video. Once you start working, meeting your college buddies is going to be a weekend ritual that you'll only stick to once or twice a month. 3. Make The Most Of Student Offers Pexels Everywhere you go, there will be ample offers and discounts for students and young adults, scan your options and make the most of it. Did you know students get a discount at UK hostels? Not only this, we recently came across the Vodafone Prepaid Plan, wherein customers between the age of 18 to 24 years are eligible for the 'Youth Offer on Amazon Prime' that gives you a 50% discount on their annual membership. That means the Amazon Prime membership would just cost you Rs 499 for the entire year now! So guys, get this right! You can shop till you drop and be rest assured your parcel will be shipped to you pretty soon, so say goodbye to the unending waiting! The Amazon Prime Day sale begins exclusively on 16th July for its Prime members, so register now before it's too late! 4. Date A Lot Pexels Yes, there I said it! The first girl you meet isn't necessarily going to be the love of your life. Some relations will leave you with pleasant memories that'll last a lifetime, while some might just make you want to quit on relationships altogether, but never give up on love! The 'forever' kind of love is somewhere out there. And in case you stumble upon that special one, shower her with gifts from Amazon and be rest assured it will be shipped to her at a supersonic rate, all thanks to your Prime membership, that you scored at 50% off! 5. Live For Experiences, Not Things Pexels It's not that Xbox or Play Station that you'll remember 20 or 30 years down the lane, it's the magical moments of laughter, love and crazy parties that will leave you with ample stories to share. As young adults, you might face the usual financial crunch, but trust me, even with just a few hundred bucks in your pocket, you can have the time of your life just chilling with friends and cracking up over the most basic things. Go to the next EDM concert, and if for some reason you can't, sit with your friends and listen to music on Amazon Prime Music. Make the experience count!
