  1. We keep reviewing smartphones almost every week but sometimes, a new tablet comes along that gets us excited. The iPad Pro is one of our favourite gadgets of 2018 and in fact, we typed this very review on it. Having said that, not everyone needs such a powerful and big screened tablet; especially in India where more than half the urban population is on the move. Apple recently launched the new iPad Mini 5 and we got our hands on the small tablet to see what all it can do. We've used Android tablets in the past but none of them even come to close Apple's offering when it comes to performance. Our experience has largely been “meh.” Android tablets are often powered by less powerful chipsets or do not offer a great screen for content viewing. Some of them lack proper software updates or outright don't work as intended. Having said that, there are a few Samsung tablets we love but Apple's iPad series is where the buck stops. So, here's our review of the new iPad Mini and what we think about the new tablet. Design & Display © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The New iPad Mini 5 doesn't look too different from its predecessor as it looks nearly identical from the iPad 4 from 2015. It's got the same massive bezels, a 7.9-inch Retina screen and a new back design similar to the iPad Pro from 2017. We would have loved to see an almost all-screen design like on the iPad Pro from last year and give it the modern aesthetic we all expected. The display, on the other hand, has slight upgrades as it now supports True Tone technology, has a 25 per cent higher colour gamut and is 25 per cent brighter. The iPad Mini has a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels but does not have ProMotion features like the iPad Pro where it can adjust the refresh rate automatically depending on what you are doing. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The iPad Mini comes with stereo speakers at the bottom which are loud enough for watching movies or TV shows. Having said that, if you want more privacy or don't want to disturb the people around you, the iPad Mini 5 comes with a 3.55 mm headphone jack. You can even pair the new iPad Mini with AirPods seamlessly which is a first for the iPad Mini. The smaller iPad design is probably the star attraction here as it fits in the palm of your hand perfectly. The iPad Mini's size is probably the one feature that makes it the most versatile gadget from Apple's entire portfolio. The screen is large enough to enjoy video content, gaming and is perfect to even use it as an e-book reader. The small sizes iPad Mini is a favourite amongst users for these various reasons. However, with new services like Apple Arcade and Apple TV Plus on the horizon, you really want to invest in an iPad that can handle everything you throw at it. We shall talk about it more in the performance section in detail and what a powerful chipset can imply for the future of iPads. Performance The iPad Mini 5 is powered by an A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine that amps up the performance with faster computing power and graphics processing over the A8 chip. This means that the iPad Mini 5 also supports augmented reality features which come in handy when you want to do something educational or measure objects. You can even play AR games such as Angry Birds with other iOS devices that support AR. The iPad Mini comes in two models with 64GB or 256 GB of internal storage. Depending on your needs, you can get the appropriate storage variant. The battery life on the iPad Mini 5 also works as advertised. During our testing, the iPad Mini 5 managed to last over 10 hours with constant use. We used the iPad mini to watch TV shows, play games like Fortnite and a lot of internet browsing. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The iPad Mini 5 comes with iOS 12 out of the box and some new features that were missing in the previous generation. For starters, you can now run two apps at once in either the Slide Over or Split View. IOS 12 also works in tandem with the A12 Bionic processor to offer optimum performance which was quite evident when we were gaming. The iPad Mini 5 also now supports the first generation Apple Pencil which is a great new addition for people who like to take notes, sign documents or draw the go. The iPad Mini 5 is now officially a full-fledged tablet that has a place of its own in Apple's portfolio. The A12 Bionic Processor is already a powerful processor that also powers the iPhone XS and XS Max. The A12 is the fastest processor in the market right now and has some major advantages when it comes to the device's future. The A12 Bionic processor is also very powerful when it comes to running games and the iPad Mini 5 will be vital for Apple Arcade when it launches. For example, the A12 Bionic chip can give consoles like the Nintendo Switch a run for its money. Being a highly portable device, the iPad Mini is essential for capturing those markets. The A12 can already run some console level games; at least the ones you see on Nintendo Switch. The sheer size on the iPad Mini will offer a better gaming experience than any smartphone or even the Nintendo Switch. The display quality, a powerful chipset and a massive library of games all work in favour of the iPad Mini. Cameras The iPad Mini does come with cameras on both the front and the back but we wouldn't use them for taking proper images. We would recommend you use the smartphone in your pocket as it would be able to deliver a better image. Having said that, the iPad Mini does have an 8-megapixel, f/2.4 camera at the back that can take good enough pictures. You can use the iPad Mini 5 to scan documents, take pictures of daily objects etc. The iPad Mini 5 has a 7-megapixel selfie camera but does not have support for portrait selfies, unlike the iPad Pro. However, the front camera is awesome for making video FaceTime calls and take general selfies. The Final Say © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The iPad Mini 5 is probably the only tablet that caters for people who are looking for performance and portability. The small tablet market right now is not up to the mark as Android-based tablets are often outfitted with weak processors and mediocre screens. The iPad Mini 5 easily fills that gap and offers the full iOS experience you've come to expect from Apple devices. The iPad Mini 5 has a great display and offers new augmented reality features never seen on an iPad Mini before. With services like Apple Arcade on the horizon, the iPad Mini 5 is the right investment right now. It's Apple's most versatile device that offers everything from productivity to entertainment. The iPad Mini 5 retails in India for Rs 34,900 (Cellular) and Rs 45,900 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) which could be considered expensive for India but the advantages it offers offsets the cost entirely.
  2. Apple has updated its line of smart battery cases for the current generation on iPhones and the Cupertino giant has not only refined them but made them work in the favour of iPhones. The iPhone XR already has an impressive battery life and with the addition of the new Smart Battery Case, we were astonished as to how many hours our iPhones lasted. We got the smart battery case for the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR and couldn't be happier with its performance. The new iPhone Smart Battery Case costs Rs 11,900 in India and here's our detailed analysis to let you know why it's worth it. How Does It Look? © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Apple follows a similar design ethos as the original Smart Battery Case. However, there are a few design features that have changed from before. It has the same soft silicone material as the normal covers but has changed ergonomically. It has micro-fibre in the inside so that it keeps your iPhone clean and now has a light that lights up when you charge the case separately. The hump at the back is now evenly distributed and extends to the bottom of the case. At the front, Apple has also removed the chin so that you can now use gestures easily to navigate on your iPhone. The top end of the Smart Battery Case is bendable which you use to slip in your iPhone. Do make sure that you slide in the phone rather than popping it in as you can damage the lightning port inside the cover. Having said that the Smart Battery Case is refined ergonomically, the case does make your phone heavier. It's also quite thick which can be an issue for people who like to wear tight fitted jeans/bottoms. How Does It Work © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Smart Battery Case is integrated with iOS and you can see the status of your battery on the lock screen or on the battery widget. The Smart Battery Case has a dedicated Lightning port which means you can charge the case and iPhone at the same time. The case offers Lightning Passthrough which makes it easier to charge both devices at the same time. You should note that it will charge the iPhone first and then the Smart Battery Case. You can even fast charge both devices as the Smart Battery Case also supports USB-PD (power delivery). You will need Apple's fast charger and USB-C to lightning cable in order for this to work. © Apple You can even charge both the case and the iPhone wirelessly as it works almost the same as it does via the wall charger. The iPhone will get the priority and then it will charge the Smart Battery Case. How's The Battery Life? When it comes to battery discharge, the Smart Battery Case keeps the iPhone charged to 100% for almost an entire day. The iPhone first consumes juice from the smart case and then starts to use its own battery when the juice on the case is depleted. This effectively made the iPhone XR last up to almost two full days (42 hours) on a single charge and the iPhone XS Max for around 38 hours. Do note that we used both the smartphones as our daily drivers that included hours of browsing, GPS navigation, a little bit of gaming and a lot of emails. If you are the kind of iPhone user who spends most of the day on your phone and your life depends on it, this accessory is a no brainer. Sure, it's expensive but it is probably the most comprehensive and reliable battery case you can get. It's integrated with iOS and has smart charging features that you won't find in any third party smart battery cases. It works wirelessly and can also be charged rapidly with Apple's fast charger. iPhone cases are our favourite accessories for the phones, and if you are planning to buy one soon; why not extend your battery life while you're at it?
  3. Gone are the days when fitness was restricted to just bodybuilding and weight training. Today, the definition of a fit body is the one that not only looks good but is able to perform well too. Actors like Tiger Shroff and Vidyut Jamwal have changed the outlook on how people perceive fitness in their minds. © Instagram/tigerjackieshroff Not only do they have a chiselled body, but they also carry unique skills of being agile and athletic at the same time. They defy the age-old myth that weight training makes you slow and stiff. Its all about how you manage your training and incorporate various aspects of fitness together. I am not saying that you need to forget about weight training if you want to be fast and agile, but yes, agility exercises should be an important part of your workout routine if your aim is to be like them. © YouTube Agility in simple terms means the ability to move quickly and change direction with ease. This describes both physical and mental agility. As we age, or just become complacent in our daily routines, both our mental and physical agility suffers. Here are a few exercises that you can do to be quick on your toes and be sharp as a tack. 1. Ladder Drills The agility ladder is a common instrument which can be found in any average gym these days. It looks almost like a regular ladder. To use an agility ladder for training you need to select a method of moving through the ladder. For example, you might start with a high-knee march forward through each box, and then progress to a lateral scissor if you're more advanced. To target your upper body, move through the ladder with your hands while maintaining a push-up position. Working out on an agility ladder might seem simple, but it will get your heart rate up and your brain working in just no time. There are lots of similar ways to work out on an agility ladder to improve your agility skills. 2. Hurdle Drills Hurdle drills can be performed by using dedicated hurdles or dumbbells if the hurdles are not available in your gym. You can keep dumbbells in place of hurdle sets and use them as hurdles while performing agility drills. For example, you can set 5 to 10 hurdles in a straight row, parallel to each other. Moving laterally, start by going over the first hurdle with a high step and pausing in a stork stance before moving back to the starting position. Then move over the first two hurdles, pause and go back to the start. Continue this until all five to 10 hurdles have been travelled. When you become more advanced, speed up the hurdle steps and take out the pause. 3. Cone Drills Cone drills help you to get faster with your mind as well. You need small cones to make this drill. Take 5 or 7 small cones and name them with numbers or alphabet or colours. The identity has to be given to each cone which needs to be unique. Now ask someone to call out the name of a particular cone at random and try to touch the called out cone as fast as possible. Do this for a couple of minutes and see how your reaction time increases when you perform this more often.

  4. The tragic burning of the Notre-Dame Cathedral spire in Paris has now resulted in donations and help from unlikely sources for its restoration. In fact, 'Assassin's Creed Unity' may even be used as a reference for restoration work, as the game features a scaled replica of the historic site. The 3D model in the game is incredibly detailed and will probably be used as a reference to restore the cathedral to its formal glory. © Ubisoft The game also lets players traverse the monument and parkour over almost every inch of the structure. You can even go inside the cathedral in the game and explore the interiors. In lieu of the burning, you can now actually do that for free, thanks to an initiative by Ubisoft. Apart from donating €500,000 to restoration works, Ubisoft is now giving away 'Assassin's Creed Unity' for free on PC. © Ubisoft “Ubisoft wants to give all gamers the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of the cathedral”, the publisher's statement reads. “You can download Assassin's Creed Unity on PC for free here, and you'll own it forever in your Uplay games library.” © Ubisoft The Notre-Dame in the game was detailed and developed by level designer Caroline Miousse. It took 14 months of production and took three weeks to get the interior right. Due to Ubisoft's hard work, the cathedral is a fully explorable 90% scale model of the real monument.
  5. A few days ago, technically one day before Vivek Oberoi's movie 'PM Narendra Modi' was going to release, the Election Commission put a ban on the film until the Lok Sabha elections are over. According to the order issued by the EC, "any Biopic material in nature of biography sub serving the purpose of any political entity or any individual entity connected to it, which has the potential to disturb level-playing field during the election, should not be displayed in Electronic media including cinematograph during the operation of Model Code of Conduct." © Instagram Fast forward to the present time and the trailer of the film, which is an "inspiring saga of a man, a politician, a leader and a visionary", has gone missing from YouTube. The movie was already drowning in a pool of controversy thanks to the ban and memes, and now the disappearance of the trailer took away the last straw from the makers of the film. View this post on Instagram Jai Hind ð®ð³ð We humbly ask for your prayers and blessings on this incredible journey. #AkhandBharat #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Jan 7, 2019 at 5:59am PST No matter how much people joke about the trailer or Vivek Oberoi's looks and performance, but a trailer or any video for that matter going off YouTube is a major blow and we don't how the cast and the crew of the film is going to deal with this new development. View this post on Instagram Thank you to each and every one of you for your blessings, love and support. Thank you to the Indian Judiciary. We hope you like the film and that it inspires you all! #PMNarendraModi ð Jai Hind ð®ð³ @omungkumar @officialsandipssingh @oberoi_suresh @anandpandit @tseries.official A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Apr 5, 2019 at 7:15am PDT Apparently, not just YouTube, the official trailer has been removed from most other platforms as well. All it shows is, "The video is unavailable." According to reports, this move might be related to the order of EC. View this post on Instagram 2 days to go! Thursday 11th April! #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Apr 9, 2019 at 12:51am PDT So, in case you missed out on the trailer, looks like you won't be able to see it on the internet anytime soon. Directed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sandip Singh, 'PM Narendra Modi' was initially supposed to release on April 11, but has now been pushed for a later date.
  6. In case you missed the news, Disney announced its streaming service in the US last week called Disney+. It'll have content from Disney Studios, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, National Geographic, to name a few. Yes, that includes all the Marvel superhero and Star Wars movies. As expected, Disney+ is not coming to India, however, Disney will route all the original content created for Disney+ along with its movie library to Indian audiences through Hotstar. That's right, Hotstar in India will host all the Disney+ content, and it's also planning to localize Disney+ movies and shows by dubbing, or by adding subtitles in Indian languages, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. © Disney Disney's plan to route the Disney+ content instead of launching a separate streaming service does seem like the logical thing to do. Hotstar, a streaming service owned by Star India, is a part of Walt Disney Group after all. Also, Hotstar has over 300 million active users in India, so yes, Hotstar clearly has a wide reach. It's also worth pointing out that Hotstar already hosts content from other services like ESPN and Hulu. That said, India will now be the only market in the world where content from services such as Hulu, ESPN, and Disney+ will live under the same name. © Marvel Lastly, coming to the pricing, Star India is planning to continue with its current subscription plans. While, globally, Disney+ will be priced at $7, Hotstar plans to continue with its current subscription plans i.e. Rs. 299 per month and Rs. 999 per year.
  7. If you've seen the first episode of the final season of 'Game of Thrones', you'd have come across many things that may seem very probable. That's exactly how and why theories come into place, isn't it? And I believe you already have a few of them tucked under your belt. For instance, after seeing Lord Umber trapped in the 'death swirl' created by the Night King, we do believe the swirl has some relevance in the last season, since we've been seeing it since season 1. It could also mean it has a prominent clue on how to defeat the Night King and his army. Well, that's what theories do, build interest and a narrative for the show. © HBO Similarly, there's another theory doing the rounds. Remember Arya and Gendry and how they parted ways? It broke our hearts to see them bid adieu in the most unfavourable circumstances, but they meet again in season 8, where they are both relieved the other is alive. Gendry, a blacksmith, is busy at Winterfell forging weapons from Dragonglass and Valyrian Steel to defeat the Wights and the White Walkers and being an ace blacksmith himself, he makes some rather indestructible weapons. After a flirtatious banter between the two, Arya asks Gendry to forge her a weapon and I think that's the most romantic gesture I've seen off late! An assassin asking her former crush to craft her the finest weapon of all. Well, we do believe it's the finest because the weapon Arya has asked Gendry to make for her will play a pivotal role in the season. © HBO Let's look at all the facts here. Arya pulls out a drawing and passes it on to Gendry so he can make it. The weapon looks like a double-ended spear/staff, with a Dragonglass and a Valyrian Steel blade on each end, both detachable. Now, if you see the season 8 trailer again, you'll see Arya fight with a weapon that looks like a staff, and not to forget she got adequate training fighting with a staff when she was trying to become one of the 'Faceless Men', so it all adds up I suppose. But that's not all. According to Tommy Dunne, the weapon master of Game Of Thrones, there is a creation in season 8, which is apparently going to steal the show and I bet it's the weapon Aryá asks Gendry to make for her! © HBO “There is one creation in season 8 that is absolutely phenomenal. It'll be a showstopper. That was great to finish. It was great to make, great to design it that it was about to be reverse-engineered and made into two different items.” Dunne told a popular international publication. Does he mean Arya's weapon may put an end to the show? I wonder! Well, we really can't wait to know what Gendry forges for Arya and if the weapon itself is a showstopper like Tommy said. After all, the weapon Arya asks Gendry to make does have two pointy ends!
  8. Prabhas fans are currently super excited to see the superstar don a new hat for his next action movie 'Saaho'. He has only been associated with the character of the mighty 'Baahubali' for the last 5 years and now 'Saaho' will probably break that mould for him. It is going to be one of the most expensive movies created in Indian cinema and the action sequences are rumoured to have cost many crores for the makers. The movie also stars Shraddha Kapoor opposite Prabhas and will see Neil Nitin Mukesh play a pivotal role as well. An image from the shoot has apparently been leaked online and Prabhas fans have gone bat-shit crazy over it. This Pic Will Rule Social Media Many Days ð#Prabhas Cool Uber look #Prabhas And @ShraddhaKapoor Pair â¤ð Prabhas Hand Aa Biceps ð¥ ð@ShraddhaKapoor Glamour ð This Pic Gives Me lot of Happiness Waiting For #Saaho pic.twitter.com/JC8U1M0T9h — Rowdy R E B E L°ð¥ (@DarlingFanShiva) April 14, 2019 A simple leaked pic from the sets of #Saaho breaking the internet shows how eager #Prabhas fans are waiting for #Saaho. We hope it arrives on #15thAugust2019 and there are no more delays. Post production is in full swing. Shooting will be wrapped this week. — Filmy Duniyaa (@filmy_duniyaa) April 14, 2019 It's things like these which show the immense power of a superstar's stardom and Prabhas is no alien to this kind of fan frenzy.
  9. A gaming mouse is easily one of the most recognizable gadgets in the world. From an exaggerated design with sharp corners to flashy RGB lighting, they're distinctly visible. Buying a gaming mouse, however, isn't an easy task. There are tons of factors to consider. Well, don't worry. We've gathered together some of the best gaming mice that are out there. No matter what kind of games you're into, we're sure you'll find the best gaming mouse for your needs here on our list. Logitech G502 Hero © YouTube The Logitech G502 Hero, as you can see, clearly screams gaming from any angle you look at. It's got RGB lighting, a ton of customizable buttons, 1ms latency, a jaw-dropping 16,000 DPI sensor, etc. However, this is one of those gaming mice, which you can comfortably use even when you are not gaming. Yes, it comes with adjustable weights, which you can swap out anytime when you're, say, doing a more casual task like browsing the web. Just like the Logitech G402, this one's also not for users with big hands though. But other than that, the Logitech G502 Hero is extremely popular and it's easily one of the best gaming mice out there. Price: Rs. 4,295 HyperX Pulsefire Surge © YouTube This particular gaming mouse from HyperX, a brand that's known for its headsets and other gaming accessories, is definitely worth considering if you're on the lookout for a new gaming mouse. It's a well-designed mouse that's packed with a ton of awesome features like the 16,000 DPI sensor. As we said in our review, it's very comfortable to use, both while playing games or otherwise. It natively supports Windows shortcuts and comes with cool RGB lighting. Above all, the HyperX Pulsefire Surge is easy on the pocket compared to the ones that cost upwards of Rs. 10,000. Price: Rs. 4,799 Razer Deathadder Elite © YouTube The Razer Deathadder Eite is an all-rounder when it comes to gaming mice. It comes in a simple and fantastic shape that's perfect for all sorts of grips and hand sizes. Be it for playing games, editing photos, or simply browsing the internet, the Razer Deathadder Elite won't let you down. Like, seriously. It uses a 16,000 CPI optical sensor which has 99.4% resolution accuracy and a 450 IPS rating. All the technical terms aside, it just means that this mouse will provide flawless tracking at all times. It also comes with two perfectly placed, generously sized thumb buttons. They prove to be good for all types of grips, be it palm, claw, or tip. Price: Rs. 3,899 Steelseries Sensei 310 © Steelseries The Steelseries Sensei 310 is an ambidextrous mouse, which means it's good for both left and right-handed users. It's also grippier than most other mice, which is always good for playing games. Just like its predecessor, the Sensei 310 comes with really good sensors, so you don't have to worry about any tracking issues. Since the Sensei 310 is ambidextrous, you'll get a pair of identical thumb buttons on the left and the right. Don't worry though, the shape and size of this particular mouse has been tweaked since the last one to avoid any accidental clicks. Overall, the Steelseries Sensei 310 is a really good small, light and ambidextrous mouse, which you can rely on. Price: 4,599 CORSAIR M65 Pro © YouTube The Corsair M65 Pro is a fantastic mouse for competitive FPS gaming. The highlight of this particular mouse has to be the 'Sniper' button, which essentially lowers the DPI while holding it down. Lower the DPI, the more easily you'll be able to maintain your aim at the target. It's really great for users with a claw grip, but even palm grip users will find it very compelling. The Corsair M65 Pro, just like some other mice in our list, comes with tunable weights, which can be accessed by removing the screws on the bottom. You can dislodge between one and three 6-gram weights, giving the mouse an overall mass that's between 97 grams and 115 grams. Price: 3,599
  10. Racing games are one of the most popular forms of time-pass when you want to keep yourself entertained. This is especially true when you game on your smartphone. There's a plethora of racing games on the App Store and Play Store which makes it confusing for people to know which one is the best. Some games are casual enough to keep you busy for a while, and some premium driving experiences that are very close to console level graphics. Here are five of our favourite racing games for your smartphones. 1. Absolute Drift If you love drifting and want to play a game specifically designed for that experience, look no further than Absolute Drift. The game requires you to practise a bit if you need to get the perfect drift around those corners. If you happen to own a compatible controller, the experience is even better and rewarding. The game is available on both iOS and Android so you can play this game on the platform of your choice. 2. Asphalt 9: Legends This is a free-to-play game that's available on both iOS and Android digital stores and has microtransactions inbuilt. The game provides a more realistic approach to the game when compared to previous installations. Gameplay is exciting and full of energy, a combination you always expect from an arcade racing game. 3. Rush Rally 3 If you're a fan of rally racing, we would suggest downloading 'Rush Rally 3' as it is your best option for smartphones right now. Available on both iOS and Google Play, the game is quite challenging and is full rally racing simulator. Even though the game has touch controls, we suggest you use a Bluetooth controller to play this game for the best experience. 4. Red Bull Air Race 2: The Mobile Game 'Red Bull Air Race 2' is probably the only game you want to download if you love air-racing. The game recreates raced Red Bull hosts around the globe and you get to control you own very plane. Eat course is a real-life recreation of the actual tournament. 5. GRID Autosport This game is actual proof that console-level racing games can be ported to smartphones and deliver almost the same experience. The original game first came to consoles and PC and is now available for smartphones. This is proof that AAA racing games can be handled easily by top-tier smartphones.
  11. Fitness enthusiasts have always been crazy to discover a new supplement in the market that will help them with those 'magical' results that they are looking for. The same old supplement launches with a new name and a new tagline, these enthusiasts can then be seen rushing to the supplement stores and try these latest products in the market. However, this is where they are wrong. The real results will not come from supplements; they will come with some real nutrition and some real hardcore training in the gym. Thus, I am not going to propagate yet another new supplement launched in the market, but I am just going to tell you about the 3 supplements that can help you in your journey of fitness: 1. Creatine Monohydrate (c) Getty A well-researched supplement out there in the market for decades; creatine monohydrate works wonders for natural lifters. It wouldn't be wrong to say that it is the best alternative for steroids for natural lifters. Time and again studies have suggested that creatine monohydrate helps with strength as well as hypertrophy in trained athletes. You can either load it with a higher dose or just take a maintenance dose of 3 to 5 grams daily. I would recommend a maintenance dose as it is a little easy on your stomach. Loading creatine with high doses may give cramps and diarrhoea to a few people. The best thing about creatine is that it is one of the cheapest supplements available in the market and available in almost all the big brands. Another factor that makes it important to supplement creatine from an outside source is that it is very difficult to consume the desired level of creatine from natural food sources like chicken and fish. You will have to consume kilos of non-vegetarian food daily to fulfil the desired quantity of creatine from natural foods. Apart from the muscle building benefits, creatine monohydrate has shown well-documented research on brain function and memory. 2. Vitamin D (c) Getty Almost 80 per cent, if not less of the total population of India has a deficiency of vitamin D. In my own experience, I have never seen a blood report of my client whose vitamin D levels were sufficient or even at the margin. Almost all of them have extremely low levels of vitamin D when they come to me initially. Ideally, in India, we should be getting enough sun exposure as the whole country gets enough sunlight throughout the year. However, we deliberately avoid sun exposure worrying too much about the skin tanning issue. Low levels of vitamin D is associated with decreased athletic performance, lethargy, decrease testosterone production and various other issue that have an impact on your health and performance. Thus, it is smart to include a vitamin D supplement in your daily routine. If you think that the multi-vitamin that you are already consuming would do the needful, you are wrong. That multi-vitamin would not even have half the daily recommended dosage of vitamin d in total. Therefore, supplement a vitamin D pill separately from your multi-vitamin pills is a smart move. 3. Fatty Acids (c) Getty Majority of the cooking oils used to prepare food for human consumption is loaded with Omega 6's. The human body does need omega 6 as well but only in a limited quantity. High intake of omega 6's in the diet is the root cause of inflammation and consequently heart disease as well. Sufficient amount of omega 3's in the body will help in decreasing the omega 6 levels as well. Omega 3 helps your body with stronger joint as well as immunity. This will eventually lead to better performance as well. Though fatty fish is a good source of omega 3, it is good to include an omega-3 supplement to meet the desired quantity of daily intake of omega 3.
  12. The state of torrents, and the sites from where you download them have drastically changed over the last few years. A lot of popular websites serving torrents started to disappear. We did compile a list of working torrent websites to download movies and games, but sadly not all of them are readily accessible today. But don't worry. We did the hard work of figuring out how to access the blocked torrent sites in the country, and here are some easy ways with which you can too: 1. Use A Web-Based Proxy © HideMyAss One of the easiest ways to access blocked torrent sites in India today is by using a web-based proxy. They're simply perfect for browsers and you can access pretty any torrent site, as long as it is active, of course. You can also use a dedicated proxy software like UltraSurf, but web-based proxies are the easiest ones to use. Simply access the proxy site, type the URL you want to enter and get going. 'HideMyAss' is a popular web-based proxy you can use. Of course, there are a ton of other web-based proxies out there, but not all of them are reliable. It is, however, worth pointing out that the proxy itself might be blocked by your ISP. Well, there's not a lot you can do in that case. 2. Use VPN © VPNHub A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a way of bypassing pretty much all forms of censoring. A VPN will essentially route all of your traffic through their network, so one will know of the sites you're visiting. VPN can also be used to access content that's normally blocked in your geographical region. Just use a server of some other region, and you'll be good to go. As for the VPN options, there are a ton of them that are readily available on the market. Tunnelbear, for instance, is a fairly popular and reliable option that you can use. You can down extensions for, say, Chrome browser and access the sites. Hola, DotVPN, are a few tried-and-tested options. 3. Tor © Tor If you are someone who likes to browse the internet with total anonymity, then we're sure you must have heard of Tor. Tor browser uses the Tor network to let you access the sites. The Tor network, in case you are wondering, works by constantly changing the IPs you are connected to, so it's almost impossible for anyone to trace back. Tor has been one of the most popular ways to access torrent sites ever since they were blocked in the country. However, Tor can be super slow and painful to use for the most part. 4. Look For Magnet Links © Unsplash Even the most popular sites like The Pirate Bay now hosts only magnet links instead of torrent files. A magnet link, for those of you who don't know, is essentially a hyperlink containing the hash code for the torrent, which your torrent client can use to start finding those files. Once you find the magnet link for the torrent that you are trying to download, you can simply click on it, and your browser will automatically open up your default BitTorrent client and start downloading. But where can you find these magnet links? Well, you'd find these magnet links easily on forums and some other third-party sites that host files. Honestly, if you know what to download, then you probably already know where to look for these links.
  13. Two headlines caught my eye today as they appeared side by side in my newsfeed. On first glance, they seemed contradictory. The first was that the UK lost nearly 2,500 shops and stores last year and the second is that discount fashion retailer Primark has just invested £70m in a new store in Birmingham. This new store covers 161,000 sq ft over five floors and features a Disney-themed cafe, a beauty studio, a gents hairdresser and a Harry Potter themed section. If the UK is closed thousands of stores, and a recent department store has just fallen into administration why would a brand invest £70m in a new store? The answer is that they are not building a store, they are building an experience. It's clearly not enough to just stack products and open the doors anymore. You have to offer more to entice people in through the doors. This is why Toys R Us failed in the end. I maintain that if they had reduced shelf space and installed soft play, cafes and product demonstration areas, they would have had a chance at turning around their failing business. Primark has learned from other's mistakes. With themed "shops in shops" and child-friendly cafes, they are offering more than discount clothes. It is exactly the same as your community. Offering a space to facilitate conversation is often not enough unless you dominate your niche. Are you known for well thought out reviews? Perhaps you write valuable articles that get people to your site. Or you might be focusing on building an audience with a photo competition as Helen from The Dogly Mail has. What are you doing to encourage more people through your doors?
  14. As soon as Navratri sets in, fitness enthusiasts start worrying about how they are going to meet their protein intake. The biggest challenge for every fitness guy during Navratri is to meet his daily protein intake as non-vegetarian food becomes a big NO. Here is a list of food items that you can include in your diet that will help you meet your daily protein intake as far as possible. 1. Tofu © Getty Images Also known as 'soybean paneer', tofu is vegetarian's paradise when it comes to food items that are high in protein. An average brand of tofu available in the market would fetch you around 30 grams of protein in a serving of around 200 grams. I wouldn't say that the amino acid profile is comparable to lean chicken breast but it is still a complete source of vegetarian protein. Taste could be an issue for some people as tofu doesn't have a great taste in itself. Thus, I would recommend adding some form of vegetable or salt and pepper along with tofu to enhance its flavour. 2. Cottage Cheese Cottage Cheese or more commonly known as 'Paneer' has been a part of our Indian diet since decades. Cottage cheese is made from milk and is a vegetarian source of protein that can be used during Navratri. A 100-gram serving of paneer will give you around 20 grams of protein. Another advantage of paneer is that it has a good taste, unlike tofu. You can add cottage cheese to gravies or just sprinkle chopped pieces on cooked lentils to enhance its protein content per serving. 3. Greek Yoghurt Greek yoghurt is another food item that you can consider adding to your daily food intake during this season. Just like regular yoghurt, Greek yoghurt is also a good source of gut-friendly bacteria. Along with the goodness of gut health bacteria, greek yoghurt gives you double the protein intake as compared to regular yoghurt for the same serving size. Also, Greek yoghurt is available in delicious flavours and thus can be used in various forms like pudding and desserts. However, make sure that added sugar isn't too much in the product that you are buying. 4. Nuts & Nut Milk © Getty Images Another food item that you can consider adding to your diet during Navratri is Nuts and Nuts milk. Nuts like Almonds and its milk, commercially sold as Almond milk can serve a great option to be consumed as snacks and mid-meal food items. You can easily replace your evening tea and biscuits with Almonds and almond milk which will also help you to add to the total protein intake for the day. 5. Milk & Whey Protein Cow milk is also one of the best protein sources available in the vegetarian diet. A 100ml serving of milk will give you around 3 grams of protein. Make sure that you are consuming either a double toned or skimmed variety of cow milk so that your intake from milk is not too high. Similarly, supplements like whey protein and casein which are made up from milk can also be added to the diet to meet the daily protein intake to a large extent.

  15. Managing one's fitness lifestyle during the nine days of Navratri can be a challenge. Not only the diet becomes a challenge for many but maintaining the same level of intensity in workouts is difficult too. Here are a few supplements that will help you to maintain that same tempo in the gym and will also help with your dietary nutrient intake too. 1. Whey Protein Whey protein is made from milk and milk products thus it is a vegetarian source of protein. One of the biggest challenges during Navratri is to meet the daily protein intake for people who are on a high protein diet. Even people who do not fast are not allowed to bring any form of non-vegetarian foods inside their house. Thus, it is better to replace your protein intake from some other sources. Whey protein is the best available choice when it comes to meeting your protein intake for the day from vegetarian foods. A scoop of any brand of whey protein will give your around 20 plus grams of best quality protein with a flavour of your choice. Include whey protein supplement post your workout or at any other time you feel convenient to meet up your daily protein intake. 2. Casein Protein Casein protein is a slow digesting protein. Casein protein supplements are also made from milk and thus it is also a vegetarian food supplement. The advantage that casein powders have over whey protein supplements is that they digest slowly and may take up to 6-8 hours to digest completely. Thus, they provide a steady supply of amino acids to your body over a period of time. The best way to use a casein supplement is to use it at night so that you don't feel hungry during the night and your body is able to get a regular supply of amino acids. Another way to use casein is to mix it up with whey protein and make your own protein blend. This way you will be helping your body to have immediate as well as long term supply of amino acids throughout the day. Just like whey protein, casein protein is also available in various flavours. 3. Pre-Workouts Caffeine-based pre-workouts can also come in handy during the fasting season. I've seen people complaining about missing their workouts because they felt low on energy during the fasting days. This could be because of less carb consumption during Navratri or due to lesser protein intake than what they used to consume earlier. © Getty Images Caffeine is a supplement which can help on the days when you find it hard to push yourself to the gym. I am not saying to buy a fancy pre-workout that has tons of ingredients but even caffeine anhydrous alone would do the needful for you. Have it at least 30 mins before your workout sessions and you will have mental focus and rush during your workouts.

  16. Sleep is very important for human function. Not just from the bodybuilding perspective but also from the perspective of good health and performance. © Getty Images Poor sleeping habits can not only sabotage your fitness goals but it will also be harmful to your overall health in the long run. Now, there are various sleep boosting supplements available out there in the marking claiming to be effective sleep enhancers but I am going to discuss only the ones that actually work. Disclaimer: None of these supplements is a pure recommendation. They are just suggestions. Consult your doctor before taking any of these. 1. Magnesium Magnesium performs various essential biological functions including neurotransmitter synthesis. However, due to poor eating patterns people these days fail to take the recommended daily dosage of magnesium through diet. This eventually leads to various behavioural changes like stress and anxiety. Research conducted at the University of Geneva established a possible correlation between magnesium levels and sleep quality. In this research, subjects who supplemented with magnesium and whose magnesium levels were higher in the blood were able to have a more restful sleep as compared to people who were deficient. Thus, magnesium supplements can actually help you to enhance your quality of sleep. Start with a small dosage of 200mg to see the tolerance of your body and then increase the dosage according to your needs. 2. Ashwagandha According to research published in U.S national library of Medicine, Ashwagandha leaves contain 'triethylene glycol' which is a compound that has been found very useful in inducing sleep in humans. Another important finding of this study was that supplementing ashwagandha also increases the quality of sleep as subjects who took Ashwagandha supplements were able to go in the 'deep sleep' mode. Another advantage of Ashwagandha as a sleep supplement is that the body does not become addicted to it. You can stop taking Ashwagandha once you don't feel the need to take it anymore. © Getty Images 3. Valerian Valerian is a sleep-boosting herb that is more commonly used in the United States and Europe. However, these days you can find valerian herb supplements in the Indian online market too. According to a study published in the US National Library of Medicine, valerian has proven benefits to enhance the quality of sleep. These benefits come with no side effects like morning hangovers. Valerian is a potent herb thus you want to make sure that you start consuming it only in small amounts. 4. Melatonin Melatonin is a common over the counter drug that is generally prescribed to get rid of jet lag and to manage any kind of sleep disturbances. It is helpful in managing unbalanced circadian rhythms from jet lag. According to a study published in the National Library of Medicine, evidence exists to prove that melatonin may reduce the time it takes for people to fall asleep. However, melatonin is not a supplement that you can play around with. If you are taking concentrated melatonin alone, make sure to start with a low dosage. Compound supplements that contain melatonin as one of the components contain melatonin in small doses only which you may not worry about. Though the above supplements can help you to increase the quality of your sleep, it is always better to let your body do its routine activities without any supplements. Use any of these supplements to manage your sleep and discontinue when you feel that your sleeping cycles have become better.

  17. Who says karma doesn't strike back? When it has to, it comes back full circle making sure we're aware and wary of its existence. This is exactly what happened at South Africa's Kruger National Park a few days ago, when a poacher was poached by the animals of the wildlife reserve. A suspected Rhino poacher was believed to have been 'suddenly' attacked by elephants where he died and later his remains were eaten by lions. As tragic and astounding as it sounds, it was certainly a relief to know the animals were safe and sound and that they've finally learnt to take care of themselves amidst poachers. #sapsMP Komatipoort: A human skull found in the Kruger National Park (KNP) is believed to be that of a man reportedly killed by an elephant while poaching with his accomplices on 01/04; duo arrested, rifles & ammo seized. MEhttps://t.co/XXsXpJqTjA pic.twitter.com/4Oye38Eddh — SA Police Service (@SAPoliceService) 6 April 2019 © Twitter The man entered the park with four other men, carrying arms and ammunition, in all probability to hunt and poach Rhinos, one of the most endangered species in existence today. The police said the man was suddenly attacked by an elephant, after which his accomplices claimed to have left his body on the road so that passers-by could find it, while they ran away from the park. When his family found out about his death, they urged the park to carry forth a search for him. While they'd been searching a few days, they didn't find his body but with the help of some additional field rangers, they discovered what was left of the man. By the looks of it, a pride of lions had devoured the man and left just his skull and his trousers as evidence. "Indications found at the scene suggested that a pride of lions had devoured the remains leaving only a human skull and a pair of pants," the police told a popular international publication. © Twitter Even though the man was out on an illegal hunt, this has to be one of the most tragic ways to die. With absolutely no trace whatsoever. But then again, that's how animals die too. Except their traces are sold in the market at a high price. This incident can be looked at with utmost grief, or with profound satisfaction about the fact that nature does answer back, if its peace is trespassed upon. Especially when you have to be that foolish to trespass barefoot inside a jungle. © Twitter "Entering Kruger National Park illegally and on foot is not wise, it holds many dangers and this incident is evidence of that. It is very sad to see the daughters of the deceased mourning the loss of their father, and worse still, only being able to recover very little of his remains." Said Glenn Philips, the managing executive of Kruger National Park, while he extended his condolences towards the trespasser's family. © Twitter The rest of the individuals who'd escaped the park were arrested shortly after the man died in the park. There have been many instances of Rhino poaching before. Rhinos are poached for their horns as it's believed the horns have medicinal properties and they act as an aphrodisiac, making it more valuable than cocaine in the world. All we can hope is that this is a strong message for all the poachers who infringe upon personal boundaries and poach animals with little or no remorse. Next time, maybe they'll think thrice?
  18. No, this is not a late April Fool's joke or a prank by Apple. According to a new patent filing submitted by Apple, future devices such as the iPhone and Apple Watches may have “smell recognition capabilities”. © MensXP The company has been trying to detect air pollution levels and other harmful particles with tiny sensors that could be embedded into future devices. The new patent also shows that Apple could use other multiple sensors that will be able to detect body odour, rotten food and maybe sugar levels. The patent is called “System and Methods for Environment Sensing” and it explains a system where sensors could be used with an “artificial intelligence engineer to recognize smells associated with certain chemicals.” The patent also shows how an ionic liquid sensor would be tuned to specific ranges and enclosed into an SoC. How Sensors Will Work? The system would have an in-built that will be able to raise temperatures on the ionic fluid in order to reverse any chemical reactions. Patents show that Apple is going to add the smelling technology to the Apple Watch and the iPhone. © YouTube Previous patents show that Apple wants to give owners of their devices to access air quality data. This would be highly useful especially in areas where pollution levels are off the roof. The previous patent by Apple shows that Apple wants to monitor the ozone, carbon monoxide and other harmful gases. © MensXP For diabetic patients, it would be awesome to detect blood sugar levels without the need for withdrawing blood. This would be a game changer for people who want to get rid of the tedious process. As for detecting body odour, that would help everyone from being embarrassed for sure. Being a patent, we cannot expect to see these sensors and features on a new iPhone anytime soon. In fact, there's a good chance we may never get to see it. Having said that, if this patent comes to fruition, we can all be excited about the future.
  19. People say there's something good in everything. I guess the writers of the show 'Californication' had this in mind when they wrote its script. We have a male protagonist who drinks like there's no tomorrow, smokes like a chimney, occasionally does drugs, sleeps with random women, pisses people off, and can never get his shit together. via GIPHY But, no matter how much you try, you just can't hate his guts. In fact, you would find his antics charming. He's a fucked up guy who lands himself in fucked up situations but somehow manages to come out of it using his charm. We're talking about Hank Moody, the writer who can't write. His cheeky smile, dry sense of humour, and the will to enjoy life just won't let you hate him. via GIPHY Let's see what we can learn from his fucked up yet adventurous life that can benefit us in the real world: 1. Never Say Never Karen, the love of his life, was no longer with him. But he didn't give up and always tried to make himself a better person so that he could deserve her. via GIPHY That's what dreams are for. Don't stop chasing them and always make yourself better each and every day to achieve them. It could be applicable to anything; career, love, passion, or hobby. Don't give up just because there are hurdles on the road. Get yourself up, dust off, and keep going until you achieve them. 2. Never Stop Living For Yourself The man did whatever he wanted to do, whatever he thought would give him just a glimpse of happiness. He slept with random women, drank his guts out, and never gave a **** about what people thought of him. He was simply looking for happiness in his own ways. He didn't participate in any rat race and didn't live life by society's rules. via GIPHY Whatever you do in life, keep your happiness a priority. You don't owe anything to anyone, so work towards being happy. Live for yourself and you might just enjoy life. 3. Don't Let The Child Within You Die Behind Hank's occasional portrayal of a matured persona, there was a child who came out every now and then. And that was the child which made him fun. via GIPHY Never become too serious in life. Plan your tomorrow like a matured man but live your today like a child in Disney land. It's your innocence and the eagerness to have fun that should never die. 4. Be Calm On most situations, you wouldn't see Hank agitated or anxious, no matter how bad it was. He was (almost) always calm, composed, and believed in thinking of a solution instead of worrying about the situation. That's what you need to be if you want to have a smooth life. Worrying doesn't solve anything and being anxious doesn't make the situation any easier. Be calm, MADAFAKAAAA. 5. Love Like Your Life Depends On It No matter how much of a p***y eater Hank was, he never cheated on Karen. He never stopped loving her. He never thought of loving someone else. If you're going to love someone, give it all. via GIPHY Feel the pain, the pleasure, and the journey of this shitty thing called love. It's always worth it, irrespective of how it ends. Never be afraid to love, find someone who makes you happy, and love her like she's the happy ending of your life! Hank is the guy who would live for himself but would die for his loved ones if needed. Be that guy!
  20. Apple has officially cancelled its AirPower wireless charging mat, however, the demand for the product is still quite high. The charging mat was a bold wireless charger by Apple that would charge an iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch by placing them anywhere on the mat. Currently, devices have to be placed on wireless chargers with a specific orientation in order for it to work. However, many companies have figured out a way to charge multiple devices at once ever since AirPower was announced. Just because you can't get your hands on the AirPower doesn't mean you can't enjoy wireless charging for multiple devices. Here are the best AirPower alternatives you can buy in India right now: 1. Baseus Smart 2 In 1 Wireless Charge © Basues This 10-watt wireless charging mat can simultaneously charge two smartphones and an Apple Watch. It's available in all white and is compatible with any Qi-certified device. It comes with Overload protection which means you don't have to worry about overheating. 2. Samsung Wireless Charger Duo © YouTube The Wireless Charger Duo consists of a stand and a pad, allowing you to charge two devices at once. Both spots support fast-charging which is always a plus to have. It is also Qi-certified which means it can charge any device that supports Qi wireless charging. 3. Boost Up Charging Dock By Belkin © Belkin The new wireless charging dock by Belkin can wirelessly charge your smartphone, Apple Watch and has additional USB-A port to charge other devices. It comes with a 45W AC adapter and can charge all iPhone models at 7.5W. The Apple Watch will be carted on 5W/1A via the USB port. 4. Nillkin Gemini Dual Fast Wireless Charger Charging Pad © Nillkin The Nillkin Gemini wireless charger can juice up two devices at the same time and has support for wireless charging. It can charge the iPhone with an output of 7.5W whereas, for Qualcomm devices, it goes up to 10W.
  21. Fashion is becoming all-inclusive, but once in an odd while, something pops up that makes us go 'Nope', without missing a beat. The latest example? Goth Crocs. Yes, it's a thing and we're very confused and scared. © Etsy © Etsy Goth Crocs are Crocs with spikes and chains, that look like torture devices to be worn on your feet, to torture your fashion sensibility. Crocs on their own, have been treading on thin ice for the longest time because let's face it, they aren't the best looking footwear around. In fact, the rubbery, chunky aesthetic reminds us more of flotation devices that you can hold on for dear life during a flood because these monstrosities aren't designed to drown. However, that clearly doesn't take away from their popularity because of the comfort factor. Who doesn't want to laze around inside the house (and sometimes even around the neighbourhood if you hate your neighbours hard enough) in a chunky pair of crocs that effectively shields you from any kind of (even inadvertent) social interaction? © Etsy The Goth crocs, however, are not officially manufactured by Crocs, and are sold by 'HeavyCreamStore' on Etsy. They cost about INR 17K without shipping. © Etsy All we can ask is, 'Why?'
  22. 'People expect you to have, as if you don't', writes Joaquin Phoenix, who has suddenly seized the world's attention, as his personification of the Joker saw the light of the day. via GIPHY People are calling it the darkest film that has ever been made on a DC Comics character. The teaser trailer of Todd Philips's 'Joker' which dropped on Wednesday is already topping the trends. The film's first glimpse is darkly magnificent and the 165-second teaser trailer has taken the internet by storm. Netizens are going gaga about the iconic character's newest version. via GIPHY As the world goes on and gets ready to acknowledge Joaquin Phoenix's career-defining moment, for a fact, one gets reminded of Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning performance in 'The Dark Knight'. 'Joker's' return is intoxicating, nostalgic and heart-breaking at the same time! It has just become irresistible for us to not draw comparisons between the two actors in contention. via GIPHY We hate to call it a 'Heath Ledger vs Joaquin Phoenix' phenomenon; however, we are well aware of the fact that with the film's release in October this year, fans would surely pick sides. Also, there are surely going to be many differences between the 2019 film and 'The Dark Knight'. Let us delve into some analysis and throw light on Todd Phillip's 'Joker', which is largely being compared to the Christopher Nolan film: The Lead Before Heath Ledger, it was Jack Nicholson who played Joker in the 1989 film 'Batman'. Earlier, Heath's performance was compared to Nicholson's and the audience became accepting of the fact that with time, a character has to keep evolving, no matter how many times it has already been played. via GIPHY People have always wanted to see more coming from the new actor playing the role. As much as people have valued Nicholson's performance and then that of Heath Ledger's (more because it was his last role), another actor must take the beacon ahead. Joker will die a death at the hands of the audience if they remain unwilling to accept him in a new face. We are sure Joaquin Phoenix's act would be loved as much as Ledger's. The Script 'Joker' is a film that burrows more into how the Joker came into being. The script of the film is written emphasizing the rise of the criminal mastermind and how he became the ultimate terror wrecking figure in the city of Gotham. Where on one hand in 'The Dark Knight' we saw the Joker in a fight with Batman, Todd Phillips's film is more of a 'Joker' origin story. via GIPHY The scripts of these two films are entirely different, though in bits and pieces one may find some similarities between the two. The audience will get to see 'Joker' in a more cinematic pre-modern look. There is also a difference between the colour gradations of the two films due to a difference in their timelines. Unlike 'The Dark Knight Trilogy', 'Joker' is contemplated to be a standalone story without any sequels. The Direction 'The Dark Knight' has remained one of the finest films that have ever been made by Christopher Nolan. The film is not only known for Christian Bale and Heath Ledger's quintessential performances, but much credit behind the film's record-breaking success has also been given to Nolan's directorial finesse. via GIPHY On the other hand, Todd Phillips is mostly known for his work in the 'Hangover' franchise and films that have remained flak holders of warn-out masculinity. It is simply not a great idea to compare Christopher Nolan's direction with Todd Phillips's. 'Joker' can turn out to be a game changer for Phillips, fans are not going to leave the director's efforts unanalyzed especially when it is being compared to Christopher Nolan. Till now, we only had some great vibes coming from the teaser trailer of 'Joker', it will be rather interesting to see if Phillips would be able to break the glass ceiling created by the Christopher Nolan film. via GIPHY Our hopes from 'Joker' are really high and it would not be right to straightaway pass any judgments about the film without even watching it. There is going to be a good amount of critical analysis, particularly about the two actors. For us, it is not going to be a Heath vs Phoenix! The Joker as a character is deep to understand and unfathomable to play on screen. When there can be infinite possibilities about what the Joker can feel and do, the very question of 'who plays better' is inconclusive.

  24. The 'Dabangg' series is one of Salman Khan's most successful movie ventures of recent times. The series also boasts of its own set of loyal fan following, which only adds to Salman's already massive fan base. View this post on Instagram R.I.P Vinod Khanna Sir. You will really be missed . A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Apr 27, 2017 at 11:04am PDT When 'Dabangg' directed by Abhinav Kashyap released in 2010, it went on to become a mega blockbuster, and a stellar debut film for Sonakshi Sinha. The actress who played the female lead in the movie opposite Salman Khan, was seen again in 'Dabangg 2' (2012) which was directed by Arbaaz Khan himself.
