  1. Think 'Sacred Games', 'Ghoul', 'Lust Stories' or 'Mirzapur', 'The Test Case' and 'Breathe', the one common thread they share amongst themselves is their screening platform and the popularity they have come to enjoy despite it. © Netflix With tremendous boom in the digital space, more and more prominent faces from the Hindi film industry are making their way to the smaller and glass-covered screens (as opposed to the silver screen(s) they are more used to gracing). © Amazon Prime While actors like Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi, Nimrat Kaur, Radhika Apte, Kiara Advani, R. Madhavan and the likes, received both critical acclaim and tremendous popularity through their web appearances last year, 2019 also holds a lot of promise for a bunch of Bollywood actors who have or will make their digital debuts this year. © Netflix Check out these 5 notable Bollywood actors who are making their digital debuts in 2019. 1. Akshay Kumar © Twitter Akshay was literally on fire when he announced that he will be venturing into the digital space with Vikram Malhotra's action thriller 'The End'. 2. Emraan Hashmi © Twitter The man knows how to work the camera and work up movie goers *winks*, but his digital debut with Netflix's 'Bard of Blood' is expected to take this up a notch for the actor. An espionage thriller, it's based on a Bilal Siddiqi novel by the same name. 3. Abhishek Bachchan © Twitter R. Madhavan's 'Breathe' is getting an installment with 'Breathe 2' and it will feature Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. His will reportedly essay the role of a psychiatrist on the show. 4. Dia Mirza © Twitter Dia Mirza hasn't been an active part of mainstream Bollywood films of late. The former Miss India is now making her digital debut with Sonam Nair's 'Kaafir', as a Kashmiri woman trapped between the politics of India and Pakistan. 5. Huma Qureshi © Twitter Huma Qureshi's digital debut with Netflix's 'Leila' premiered yesterday amidst a lot of excitement, following the crushing response the show's trailer received online.
  2. E3 gaming expo got over this week and many new upcoming games were announced for consoles and PC. Some of the biggest conferences included games that piqued everyone's interest and we got to see some gameplay or teaser from publishers and studios. Some of these games won't be out until next year while some are about to launch in a few months. We are not going to include annual titles like FIFA and Madden because these games tend to remain the same with minor updates. Here are the best coolest games that were announced or showed off at E3 this year: 1. Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4,Xbox One, PC) - April 2020 Last year, we got to check out some exclusive gameplay behind closed doors and this year, we got to see some more footage of the upcoming gaming by CD Project Red. What was cool about this revelation was that we got to see a character being played by Keanu Reeves. The game is set in a dystopian future where humans can upgrade their bodies with augmentations. Being a CD Projekt Red game, we can expect some killer plots and RPG mechanics that we've been familiar with from the Witcher series. The expectation for this game is very high and we hope the developers can deliver. 2. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order' (PS4, Xbox One, PC) - November 2019 EA has not come out with a single-player story-driven game every since the company switched its strategy to live service titles. However, this we got to see Respawn Entertainment's “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order” gameplay that blew us away from the start. You will play as one of the last remaining Jedis after the Empire has taken over the galaxy. The gameplay footage showed us what we can do in the game i.e. weird lightsabers, use force powers to defeat enemies and interact with the environment, and go on an adventure with your own cute little droid. 3. 'Watch Dogs: Legion' (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia) - March 2020 Watch Dogs is coming back in the form of 'Watch Dogs: Legion' that will be set in post-Brexit London. The city is under a paramilitary organisation called 'Albion' after the fall of the Government and it is up to you to take on the authority. As a part of a rebellious group called DedSec, you will be playing as multiple characters to take on Albion with gadgets, hacking and good old shooting. The coolest part about this game is that you can play as any character you want in the city. You can play as a master assassin, a gifted hacker or even as an old lady. Ubisoft says that you will be able to recruit anyone and the cutscenes in the game will adjust according to who you are playing as. We highly recommend you check out the gameplay footage above to know more about this game. 4. 'Ghostwire: Tokyo' The game was showcased at Bethesda's E3 conference and was met with good reception at the expo and on Twitter. The game is basically a scary, action-adventure game where citizens of Tokyo are disappearing for some odd reason. Your job is to find out why and that's all we got to see from this teaser trailer. From the makers of “The Evil Within,” you really should check out what they have in store for us. 5. Doom Eternal (PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia - November 2020 A brand new Doom game is coming for fans next year where the forces of Hell have begun to invade Earth, and the Doom Slayer arrives to repel the demons. It is the fifth main title in the Doom series and put heavy emphasis on "push-forward" combat. Creative director Hugo Martin has stated there will be twice as many demon types in this game and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Check out the gameplay footage above if you can handle it.
  3. Forbes just dropped their annual and much-awaited list of the world's 100 most highly paid sportsmen in the year 2019 and while some of the rankings were obvious, others were straight-out shocking and gave a sense of reality about the fan-following of various sports both inside and outside of India. To begin with the list-toppers, Lionel Messi became the highest paid athlete in the world at a whopping $127 million, which is $18 million more than the second person on the list, Cristiano Ronaldo, followed by Brazil sensation, Neymar Jr. at $105 million. This makes it for the very first time that footballers have dominated the top three spots of such a list. Global soccer icon Lionel Messi is only the 2nd soccer player to rank No. 1 on Forbes' list of World's Highest-Paid Athletes, after longtime rival Cristiano Ronaldo pic.twitter.com/4cLyTSZHtT — Forbes (@Forbes) June 11, 2019 Other world-known sports celebrities to make it in the top 10 include names like Roger Federer (Rank 5; Pay $93.4 million), Lebron James (Rank 8; Pay $89 Million) and Stephen Curry (Rank 9; Pay $79.8 million). Moving past the traditional endorsement model in many cases, LeBron James is the 8th highest-paid athlete in the world, and the highest-paid NBA player pic.twitter.com/A2CW3RvGsy — Forbes (@Forbes) June 11, 2019 Some of the shocking rankings include Serena Williams who is not only considered the unofficial face of women's tennis but has a massive payout of $25 million, thanks to her sponsors like Nike, Gatorade and Wilson. Having said that, Williams has had a bad year on the court, resulting in her 2019 'salary' plummeting to $4.2 million and bringing her down to rank #63. Tied for the No. 63 spot with Miguel Cabrera, Serena Williams is the only female on this year's list of the world's 100 highest-paid athletes pic.twitter.com/fkXrrAxMFX — Forbes (@Forbes) June 11, 2019 But to us Indians, the biggest disbelief probably came considering the ranking of the captain of the Indian cricket team and currently the best ODI batsman in the world, Virat Kohli who just made it to the Top 100, positioned dead last in the list at the 100th spot with the annual salary of $4 million and sponsorship worth $21 million, mounting his 2019 worth $25 million. Virat Kohli is the only cricketer among the forbes 2019 world's highest paid athletes.#CWC19 pic.twitter.com/cExJKRrhvw — Akki (@akkiakki973798) June 11, 2019 Now, make no mistake, a year worth $25 million is a GOOD year and being named is the list of the world's most highly paid athletes has to be an honour in itself but the fact that Kohli is last on the list and is the only cricketer in the list, says a thousand words about the popularity of the game of cricket outside of India. While our nation has put the game of bat and ball on a pedestal and given birth to the money-minting business that the Indian Premier League has turned out to be, cricket is still nowhere as popular as sports like football or basketball worldwide and therefore, do not bring in many international sponsorships and bigger deals. Having said that while the Indian cricket team is doing well on their ICC World Cup 2019 journey, having defeated both their opponents, we would like to congratulate Virat Kohli on this feat.

  4. The much-anticipated event of the month, which will also mark the end of the two months-long General Elections in India, Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony is all set to take place a few hours from now. It's a big day not only for the ruling government, but also the country at large as it gets ready to welcome Modi ji as the country's prime minister for yet another term. © Twitter The swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Modi and other Union Ministers will be officiated by President Ram Nath Kovind within the premises of Rashtrapati Bhavan at 7 pm this evening, in the presence of some of the world's most important and famous individuals. While it was said that PM Modi had sent out invitations to numerous international dignitaries from around the world, it has also been reported that there are 8,000 confirmed guests who are all set to attend PM Modi's oath taking ceremony, making it a historical event to be hosted at the venue. © Twitter That said, let's take a look at all the famous people from India and around the world who will be attending the ceremony hours from now. International Dignitaries © Twitter 1. BIMSTEC leaders from countries such as Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand will be attending the ceremony. As per reports, Pakistan was not sent an invitation. 2. Presidents of neighbouring countries, that is, Nepal, Myanmar, Kyrgyzstan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will also attend the ceremony. 3. Prime Ministers of Bhutan and Mauritius will also be present at the ceremony. 4. Thailand's Special Envoy Grisada Boonrach will represent the country at the ceremony. Indian Dignitaries © Twitter 1. All the Chief Ministers in the country have been invited and are expected to attend the ceremony. However, Mamata Banerjee, Naveen Patnaik and Bhupesh Singh Bhaghel have stated that they would not be able to attend the ceremony. 2. Congress President Rahul Gandhi and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi have also confirmed their presence. 3. It is customary for all the former presidents, prime ministers and veteran politicians to attend PM's oath-taking ceremony. Celebrities © Twitter 1. Indian business moguls Mukesh Ambani, Gautam Adani and Ratan Tata have been invited for the ceremony, along with international bigwigs like Bill Gates. 2. Sports stars such as Rahul Dravid, PT Usha, Saina Nehwal, Anil Kumble, Dipa Karmakar and many others have been invited to the ceremony. 3.

Families of deceased BJP workers from political violence-hit West Bengal have also been invited for the ceremony. 2. Reportedly, families of Pulwama attack martyrs have also been invited for the ceremony but there is no confirmation on the news.
  5. Indians love their booze and appreciate the kind of 'high' the golden-mahogany liquids are capable of inducing. Hardcore Indian guzzlers do not believe in discriminating between theke ka daaru desi (remember this track from 'Cocktail'?) and classy IMFL liquor served at fancy bars and restaurants. From the throat-burning shots of liquor to the lighter ones that glide easily and warm us up, most Indians will say yes to any, and every boozy option out there. © Getty Images Yet, even though Indians love to brag about their drinking skills, according to The Global Drug Survey held recently, it seems that India still has to work hard to be amongst the top 5 drunkest countries in the world. As per the results of the recent survey released by London, which is also known as the League of Shame, it showed that the United Kingdom is the drunkest country in the world, while India stands in the sixth position. © Rajkumar Hirani Films According to the survey, the British get drunk 51.1 times a year, which is at least once a week, whereas Indians get drunk 41 times a year, which is almost once a week. At the second position is United States (50.3), followed by Canada (47.9) and Australia (47.4). Many South American countries were seen to be drinking least predominantly. © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Talking about the UK's lead in the survey, Adam Winstock, the founder of the survey and a consultant addiction psychiatrist told Hindustan Times that, “We get told too much is bad, and it is, but current guidelines fail to accept the pleasure of intoxication and give a little guide on the difference between being a little drunk and a lot drunk, and doing it three to four times a year versus weekly.” We wonder how Indians will take their ranking in something they love to indulge in, and believe they are actually good at.
  6. India celebrates the most desirable men, every year, through a generic public poll and each year the results are fantastic and very well deserving. While we do need desirable men to become an icon for the youth and inspiration for everyone else, there are only a few who can make it to the top 50. These men work hard on themselves, are humble beyond doubt and always do inspirational things to mould the generation's basic ideology. Be it a cricketer, an actor, a singer or a model, Indian men who've had self-made careers and believe in basic humility, while never forgetting who they truly are, deserve this rank, rightfully. © Instagram So, when The Times decided to hold a poll so that the top 50 desirable men could stand out, we were more than happy with the results. The results were unveiled today, and Vicky Kaushal grabs the top spot this year. Yes, he's certainly the king of desirability and the most favoured male celebrity in the country right now to take the numero-uno spot. While we all know he's an ace actor, people also acknowledge his versatility to play varied roles. Whether he's in a supporting role in films like 'Raazi' or 'Sanju' or he's experimenting with over-the-top content with web series like 'Love Per Square Foot' and 'Lust Stories', he's played every character with ease and reasonability and made a suitable place for himself. © Instagram "I was shocked to know that I was on the list, and then, to be at the top… that was a huge surprise. I am still coming to terms with it. I can't figure out what people saw in me and why they chose me for the top spot. But I thank everyone who voted for me and the internal jury, with all my heart. " - Vicky Kaushal told Bombay Times.

Prathamesh Maulingkar © Instagram A footballer and a pageant title holder, he bags the second place for being desirable. He is the first Indian/Asian man to win the title of Mister Supranational 2018 at the age of 27. The lad also won the 'best body award' at the competition. The model has a ripped body, that surely makes him a desirable quotient for all the girls to drool all over him! View this post on Instagram You have to be odd to be number one. ð¯ A post shared by Prathamesh Maulingkar (@prathamesh_maulingkar) on May 3, 2019 at 12:21am PDT 3. Ranveer Singh © Instagram On number three we have Ranveer Singh, who has been a perennial favourite on this list. And why shouldn't he be? He has class, an unusual closet, loads and loads of energy and stellar performances in films like 'Simmba' and 'Padmaavat'. His desirability quotient definitely stems from his quirky dressing sense that hits a nerve with most people along with his overpowering and full of life on-screen presence. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on May 7, 2019 at 1:31pm PDT 4. Vijay Deverakonda © Instagram Vijay has outshone himself in a span of eight years, especially in South Indian films.

Virat Kohli © Instagram The Indian skipper has dominated the game of cricket across all formats in 2018, and everyone loves watching him play. His on-field aggression, makes him rather desirable off-field as well. View this post on Instagram Great to be back at the Chinnaswamy for another season with @royalchallengersbangalore. ð Can't wait to be on the field! ðªð½ #PlayBold #IPL2019 A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Mar 18, 2019 at 1:48am PDT So, there you have it. The top 5 most desirable men in India in 2018. These are men who strive to work hard and make it big, everyday and they're certainly the best inspiration around!
  7. After the epic conclusion of the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League, all eyes are on the ICC World Cup 2019 which will begin from 30th May 2019 with the first match between England and South Africa at the Oval, London, England. The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup is the 12th edition of ODI Cricket World Cup, scheduled to take place in England and Wales between 30 May 2019 to 14 July 2019. The tournament will consist of a single group of 10 teams, with every team getting the opportunity to play against each of the other nine teams at least once. The top four at the end of the group stage will go on to compete against each other in the semi-finals. ICC World Cup 2019: Team India Schedule: DateVersusLocation 5/6/2019 South Africa Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, Hampshire, England 9/6/2019 Australia The Oval, London, England 13/06/2019 New Zealand Trent Bridge, West Bridgford, England 16/06/2019 Pakistan Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Stretford, England 22/06/2019 Afghanistan Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, Hampshire, England 27/06/2019 West Indies Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Stretford, England 30/06/2019 England Edgbaston, Birmingham, England 2/7/2019 Bangladesh Edgbaston, Birmingham, England 6/7/2019 Sri Lanka Headingley Carnegie, Leeds, England All the league matches will start at 3:00 pm IST. India's History At ICC World Cups: India got to lift the World Cup trophy for the very first time under the captaincy of the great Kapil Dev in 1983. The victory was not only a great achievement for the 14-man-squad of the time but also for the countless generations to come as it added immensely to the popularity of the game in the country with more and more people not only wanting to watch cricket but also trying to get selected in the national team. 2011 was the year when Mahendra Singh Dhoni led the Men in Blue to winning the ICC World Cup for the second time, this one being in our own home-ground. With Sachin Tendulkar nearing his retirement, Dhoni in his prime and Virat Kohli just beginning to show his talents as a batsman, the 2011 Indian roster consisted of three of the most successful cricketers to ever play in the country's jersey. Now, with Dhoni taking Tendulkar's place as the team veteran and Virat Kohli in his top form and the leader of the squad, Team India will once again try to bring home the greatest glory there is in the world of cricket. 15-Man-Squad, Team India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Dinesh Karthik (reserve wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, K. L. Rahul, Kedar Jadhav, Kuldeep Yadav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Shikhar Dhawan, Vijay Shankar, Yuzvendra Chahal How can I watch Team India's World Cup matches? Star Sports Network have the rights to officially broadcast every match of the 2019 ICC World Cup. You can also catch the games like on the Hotstar website or mobile application.
  8. The penultimate episode of 'Game of Thrones' is usually where all the drama lies. This is a set pattern and considering the minimal loss of life in the league of the major characters, we expected major bloodshed, and “The Bells” promised just that. Not that we didn't get bloodshed that we were promised, but it was rather disappointing. In case, you need a round-up of all the people who lost their lives, here's a list of the characters who are now dead and how they met their final ends. 1. Varys © HBO Varys died saying "I hope I'm wrong" to Tyrion referring to Dany losing it in the end. He was burnt alive by Dany's last standing dragon, Drogon in the presence of everyone. It was sad that in the end, it was Tyrion who outed him. 2. Harry Strickland, The Commander Of The Golden Company © HBO The Golden Company may have been a force to be reckoned with, but in front of Dragonfire, they couldn't stand a chance, could they? Harry survived the fire but was later brutally stabbed by Greyworm who was clearly avenging his girlfriend, Missandei's death by the looks of his expressions. 3. Euron Greyjoy © HBO Euron lived in a world of his own. He could've fled the scene but died of his own mistake that was provoking Jaime Lannister and then dying believing that he actually killed him. Tch tch tch, nearing death does make people delusional. 4. Qyburn © HBO Poor guy. Killed by his own creation in the end. The Mountain squeezed his neck in a snap without thinking twice. When has playing God worked out well for anyone? 5. Sandor & Gregor Clegane © HBO The much-awaited Clegaine bowl finally took place. But, oh well, it did not pan out well for either of the parties. While The Mountain was a lost cause, we do miss Ser Gregor. 6. Jaime and Cersei Lannister © HBO We expected a much, much more gruesome death for Cersei for all the cruelness she's inflicted on our favourite characters over the years. But they did want to romanticise their sibling-lovers-relationship in the end. Sigh.
  9. Google announced a bunch of cool new Android Q features last night during the Google I/O 2019 keynote, and the update is now available for a bunch of smartphones. But before we check out the list of phones that will receive the update, here are all the cool new features of Android Q: Live Caption © YouTube Live caption feature, as the name suggests, will put an end to your subtitle woes. Yes, Google has revealed that this particular feature will take the words spoken in a video and display captions in real time. Live caption feature is not limited to just the videos you watch on, say, YouTube or Netflix, it can even show you captions in a video you've taken on your phone or any videos which you've received on WhatsApp, etc. So cool, right? Dark Mode © YouTube Yup, Android Q is getting a system-wide dark mode called 'Dark Theme'. So, the dark mode, besides making your phone look cool, can also help you get a little more juice out of your phone's battery. On Android Q, you'll be able to enable the dark mode by simply switching a toggle. New Gesture Navigation © YouTube Gesture navigation is something which Google had introduced with the last version of Android, but now, it's going all in. Honestly, we think it's very similar to the gesture navigation which we have on the iPhones. Here's how it works - In Android Q, there's now a thin, long white bar at the bottom instead of the 'pill and back button combo. You can simply swipe up from within an app to go home or swipe up and drag across to go into the multitasking view. To get to the app drawer, you can just swipe up from the home screen. To go back to the previous screen, you can swipe in from either side of the display. Yes, the new gestures on Android Q are very similar to Apple offers on the new iPhones, but it's not necessarily a bad thing because the iPhones gestures are fluid and they work like a charm. Permissions and Privacy © YouTube Much of the Google I/O keynote last night was about security and privacy features. Yes, Google seems to be taking the user privacy very seriously, and it shows with this new build of Android. The company has added a new 'Privacy section to settings, which will have a mix of different settings to let you take control of your privacy. There's a lot of ground to be covered in this section, but the gist of it all is that Google is very serious about user privacy and it wants the users to be on the front and centre of it all. Focus Mode © Google Google already introduced an extensive set of features to keep you away from the phone under the 'Digital Wellbeing' tag last year with Android P. Well now, the company is adding a new feature called 'Focus Mode'. This new mode is just like Do Not Disturb feature, except you'll be able to pick the apps that you find distracting or tempting, and shut them down for some time. It's a simple idea, but we think it'll users be more productive. Apart from the aforementioned features, Android Q brings a lot of other new things like Parental control, changes to notifications, the way the security updates are handled, and more. List of phones that can enrol in the Android Q beta - · Google Pixel 3, 3XL · Google Pixel 3a, 3a XL · Google Pixel 2, 2XL · Google Pixel, XL · ASUS Zenfone 5Z · Essential PH-1 · Nokia 8.1 · Huawei Mate 20 Pro · LG G8 ThinQ · OnePlus 6T · Oppo Reno · Realme 3 Pro · Sony Xperia XZ3 · Tecno Spark 3 Pro · Vivo X27 · Vivo NEX S · Vivo NEX A · Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G · Xiaomi Mi 9 If you have any of the devices mentioned above, you can now enrol for the Android Q Beta and check out all the new features.

Munna Bhai 3 © Vidhu Vinod Chopra One of the most entertaining films to be ever produced in Bollywood, 'Munna Bhai 3' starring Sanjay 'Munna' Dutt and Arshad 'Circuit' Warsi in the lead will reportedly go on the floors in June this year. Though the film's release date hasn't been given out yet, we're hoping to see it hit the screens sometime in 2020. 12. Don 3 © Excel Entertainment With reports of Shah Rukh Khan stepping out of 'Don 3' doing the rounds lately, it is being said that Ranveer Singh has been approached for the role, while Katrina Kaif might replace Priyanka Chopra Jonas in the film. We hope to see the film hit the screens soon. 13. Hera Pheri 3 © AG Films After 'Hera Pheri 2' ended with a cliffhanger, a third installment is definitely the need of the hour. However, due to multiple production setback, the film has been delayed. Latest reports suggest that the Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal starrer will hit the floors by the end of 2019, and finally release sometime in 2020. 14. Krrish 4 © Filmkraft Productions Last year on Hrithik's birthday, papa Roshan announced that the fourth installment of 'Krrish' is in the pipeline. Reportedly, Hrithik will be seen in both a positive as well as negative role in the film. 'Krrish 4' is slated to release on 25th December, 2020. 15. Housefull 4 © Instagram The fourth part of the action-comedy film series 'Housefull', the film boasts of a good assortment of Bollywood stars and is expected to release during Diwali 2019. However, the film might see a delayed release given the #MeToo allegations raised against former director Sajid Khan.
  11. Satyajit Ray isn't a name that is restricted to India or known only to Indians. This name is synonymous to path-breaking cinema that changed how the world saw Indian film-making. Famous Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa once said, “Not to have seen the cinema of Ray means existing in the world without seeing the sun or the moon.” Others, such as Wes Anderson and Francis Coppola are known to be inspired by the man who is often seen as the face of Indian cinema. Image A © Twitter Poetry pervaded his work, and a truthfulness that was inherent in every story Ray told, turned his creations into timeless pieces. The cinematic naturalism that was idiosyncratic to Ray's oeuvre, was both enlightening and entertaining. The manner in which Ray's stories unfold is simple yet impactful. However, regardless of whether you consider yourself a cinephile or not, there are a few films Ray created, which are a must-watch for every man. No matter the genre or plots that interest you, these movies will leave you with a new perspective on life and a new-found love for good cinema: 1. Aranyer Din Ratri © Pinterest A story that traces the life and times of four friends, this film was based on the novel by the same name, written by Sunil Gangopadhyay. The film narrates the adventures of contemporary Indian men very realistically. A group of friends escape the metropolitan din for the weekend, and Ray takes us on a vacation with the four of them. The film was even nominated for the Golden Bear for Best Film at the 20th Berlin International Film Festival. 2. Agantuk © DD Productions Based on one of Ray's own short stories, and his last work to make it to the big screen, this one is about the sudden appearance of a guest, no one expected to see. Featuring Utpal Dutt in the lead, he portrays a stranger-cum-guest, who visits a distant niece at her house after years of staying out of touch. With a stunning plot and meaningful dialogues, this one won three National Film awards. 3. Mahanagar © R D Banshal & Co Based on Narendranath Mitra's short story, this one revolves around themes of fear and courage, told through a woman's point-of-view on significant matters involving money, labour and justice. Ray does a wonderful job of dealing with poignant affairs, laced with empathy. From marriage to work-life balance and living with ageing parents, and speaking up against injustice, this one has everything. 4. Pratidwandi © Priya Films Stemmed around the rise of the Naxalite movement in Bengal, the film tells the story about a young, educated man and how his life undergoes great changes amid corruption and unemployment. 5. Abhijan © Abhijatrik A film rooted in the very diseases that plagued the society post India's independence, this one was packed with such impeccable showmanship, that Martin Scorsese admitted that the protagonist of the film directly inspired Robert De Niro's character in the film 'Taxi Driver'. Riveting, enlightening and a story that is relevant for all times. 6. The Apu Trilogy © Satyajit ray The trilogy comprises of 'Pather Panchali', 'Aparajito' and 'Apur Sansar' and marks the debut of the great director in Indian cinema. Through this film, Ray presented the three stages in the protagonist Apu's life. One of the best films you can possibly start off with. 7. Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne © Govt. of WB Probably one of Ray's best creations, the story revolves around the adventures of Goopy and Bagha. After the duo comes in contact with a team of ghosts and is granted three wishes by the Ghost King, they set out on a very innovative journey which will get you hooked! The film won the National Award for the best film, apart from many international awards.
  12. Before you proceed, you must know this article is dark and full of spoilers! Episode 3 of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 just hit our screens and let me just say 'Oh my GoT'! I wasn't expecting it to end the way it did, TBH. I was a little disappointed because at the end you're left wondering whatever happened to the 'prince that was promised' theory, hinting at Azor Ahai's re-reign through either Snow or Dany, but the ending was satisfactory regardless. Now the next thing to wonder is, if Arya is the prince that was promised, since the 'prince' is said to be of either gender. The legend of Azor Ahai was born centuries ago, when a Westerosi ended the long night and killed all the White Walkers or the 'Others'. So there could be a possibility the theory of the 'Prince that was promised' is still alive and kicking. © HBO But moving a little forward with why all the theories we've been contemplating haven't really played out in the 3rd episode is a little strange. There were so many. For instance, the rise of the dead from Winterfell crypts. Although, it's stated that the tombs of the dead in the crypts are protected by iron swords, which prevent the dead to rise and become wights. There was also a theory stating The Night King wouldn't be at Winerfell, since he's already marching towards Kings Landing. In fact, many theories didn't see the light of day only because Arya was decided as the Night King killer, and a true warrior since the beginning. From her thirst for knowledge to learn ways of a warrior to her training, it was like everything was foreshadowed, only we weren't paying attention. © HBO You may think the whole build-up about Jon or Dany saving the day was hyped beyond doubt, but in all honesty, Jon and Dany both played a significant part in fighting off the Night King and his army too. It was because of Jon everyone was prepped up for the war since he hosted a meeting to tell the world about them and it was Dany's army and her dragons that kept them at bay for as long as possible, at the Winterfell battle. But no one anticipated Arya's grave role towards the end. No one assumed she would strike like a ninja assassin, killing the Night King with a Valyrian Steel dagger. The same one that was used to kill Bran in season 1, before his mother and wolf killed the assassin and the same one Bran gave Arya, just in case you were wondering what Bran's role was throughout. He probably knew the future all along and did the right thing at the right time for it to play out well during the end. © HBO But you know what I realised while watching this episode? A lot of facts and scenario within the series were foreshadowed, especially where Arya was concerned. There were always instances and hints of what lay ahead but none of us really paid much attention. All along Arya was prepping to hunt the greatest enemy of all and we didn't even know it. Neither did she, but she knew she would have to act sometime in the distant future. Here's what I mean: (1) GoT was always trying to quietly set up Arya for the big showdown. Even her introduction in the show was her acing at archery. If you remember the scene from the first episode ever, where Bran is struggling to aim, because he over thinks, Arya sneaks up from behind and hits the target! And yes, this was her sans any training whatsoever. (2) Arya gets her first morsel of training from Jon, who hands her the trusted sword Needle and tells her to 'stick 'em with the pointy end'. If you've seen this episode, you'll remember Arya telling Sansa the same thing, while handing her a dagger for self protection. It all comes back full circle I suppose. (3) Arya's tryst with her 'dance lessons' aka sword fighting lessons with her teacher Syrio Forel was something to remember. That was the beginning of her professional training in sword fighting. The one thing Syrio always reminded her was her answer to the God of death: 'What do you say to the God of death' he'd ask. 'Not today' she'd say. In her second meeting with Melisandre in this episode, the red woman asks Arya the same question and Arya says 'not today', heading out of the hall. © Twitter (4) In season 3, Melisandre meets Arya with the 'Brotherhood Without Banners' and she predicts that Arya and she will meet again. She also tells Arya that she sees a darkness in her and in that darkness eyes staring back at her. Brown eyes, blue eyes and green eyes, eyes she'll shut forever. Throughout the series when Arya is seeking revenge from her 'list', she shuts many brown eyes. When Melisandre sees her again in the 3rd episode, she reminds her of the prophecy and about the blue and green eyes she's yet to shut still. *Major Hint*! © Twitter © Twitter (5) When she is kidnapped by the Hound, he plays a big pivotal role in her training. He teaches her how to find gaps and weak spots in an armour, and how to stab someone in the heart. Well, his teaching came quite handy when Arya kills the Night King. He also stayed alive, thanks to the Lord of Light, to fulfill his purpose of staying by her side towards the end. (6) In season 8 episode one, when Arya meets Jon for the first time after years, he is at the Weirwood tree when Arya comes to him without making a sound. He turns around and asks 'how did you sneak up on me?'. Why is this relevant? Because at the time she's about to kill the Night King, he has no inkling of her coming to kill him. The White Walkers feel a gush of wind but they don't realise it's Arya sneaking up on them, like a shadow, at the same place she sneaked up at Jon. Her Ninja skills are excellent and were always up to par to face this day. via GIPHY (7) This one's an important fact you might have missed. In season one, a Catspaw's tried to kill Bran when he was bedridden. He failed to do so but that dagger ended up with Little finger, who gave it to Bran in season 7. Bran gives that dagger to Arya saying since he's a cripple he won't be needing it. See the build up here? This clearly means Bran gave the dagger to Arya purposely because it's the same Valyrian Steel dagger Arya used to kill the Night King. Does this mean Bran predicted the future all along? If so, why did he sacrifice Theon?! © HBO (8) When Arya is killing the Night King, she uses a tactic she's used before in a fight with Brienne of Tarth. While killing the Night King, she lets go of the dagger from her right hand and as it falls, holds it with her left hand before she stabs his heart. In season 7, she uses a similar twitch of hand with her sword and her dagger, with Brienne. (9) Even though Arya didn't use the weapon she asked Gendry to forge for too long in this episode, she knew that weapon is her strength. While she was training to become the faceless man, she learnt how to use a staff, being blind and in absolute darkness. That was the series telling us that she was training for something bigger and more dangerous. © HBO (10) Arya is a Stark and it's known the Night King's origins have also begun from a Stark. The Children of the Forest carved the Night King from a local man, to help them fight against the first men. If you've seen that scene you'll notice the children have tied a man and they stab his heart with dragon glass. They've tied the man around what seems like a Weirwood tree to convert him. Weirwood trees are only found around Winterfell. So, it is a possibility the Night King is a Stark descendant and only a Stark could end his decent once and for all. Maybe our theories haven't gone to waste. Maybe the Prince that was promised is yet to come as there are 3 more episodes left. While we're waiting with bated breath for the next episode to air, we're also wondering what Arya's fate reads. I mean she wasn't ambitious about the throne at all. For her it was only about killing people who harmed her family and killed them and since most of them are already dead, will she die too, towards the end? Well, her character did evolve quite well and I really hope she lives to see the end.
  13. Actors joining politics is not a new thing anymore. We have seen many actors turning into politicians and are doing pretty great. The latest one to join the bandwagon is none other than 'Gadar' actor Sunny Deol. Last Friday, Deol met Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Amit Shah and since then, there were speculations that he might join the political party. Well, we all know that Deols have been pretty famous in the Punjab circuit, as Sunny's father Dharmendra had also tried his hands in politics when he had contested for Lok Sabha polls from Bikaner, Rajasthan, in 2004. The actor joined the BJP in the presence of Union ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Piyush Goyal. Going by reports, he will likely contest from Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency. Gurdaspur was the constituency of veteran actor Vinod Khanna, who died in 2017. Sunny Deol is the third member of his family, after Dharmendra and his wife Hema Malini, to join politics. After joining BJP, Sunny said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done a lot for the country and he wishes that he remains PM for another five years. He also added that just the way his father supported Atal Bihari Vajpayee, he is there to support PM Modi. We have many actors who have joined the pool of politics. Here's a list of a few actors-turned-politicians: 1. Hema Malini View this post on Instagram With honor'ble CM of Uttar Pradesh Shri #Yoginathji at Vijay Sankalp Namankan Sabha, yesterday.

  15. The Time's list of Most Influential People)is out and obviously, there are a few Indians who're making the country proud by being among so many incredible people from all over the world. Last year, Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli, Ola co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal, and Microsoft's Indian-born CEO Satya Nadella were named in the list and it was great to see so. This year, Mukesh Ambani and lawyers Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, who quashed Section 377, have made it to the list. Along with them, Indian-American comedian and TV host Hasan Minhaj is also part of the 100 Most Influential People. Anand Mahindra took charge of writing about Mukesh Ambani) and had nothing but praises for the business tycoon. He talked about Dhirubhai Ambani, Jio, and how Mukesh Ambani did keep all the promises he made. He said, “Mukesh Ambani's father Dhirubhai was a visionary in Indian business, whose Reliance Industries conglomerate pioneered ways of targeting global scale. But Ambani's vision is now even more ambitious than that of the father whose blessings he unfailingly invokes at the launch of each initiative. The scale of his Reliance Jio mobile-data network, which has already connected over 280 million people in India with low-cost 4G, is impressive by any standard. But what is truly jaw-dropping is the way it will allow Reliance to potentially dominate a staggering array of new businesses. When its enormous retail division is married to the Jio network for e-commerce, it will give Amazon a run for its money. When the media entities Ambani owns begin leveraging Jio, he could create India's default entertainment destination. The mind boggles at the possibilities.” Lastly, he said, “Back in 2003, Ambani promised Indians in a well-known advertising tagline that his company would “put the world in the palm of your hand.” It won't be long before he delivers on that promise.” Coming to Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, the badass lawyers responsible for the decriminalisation of homosexuality and quashing 157-year-old Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. Writing about them and praising them was none other than Priyanka Chopra. She said, “'I am what I am so take me as I am,' said the Chief Justice of India as the Supreme Court struck down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code in a unanimous vote. An outdated legacy of the British colonization of India, Section 377 rendered all sexual activities “against the order of nature” punishable by law. This landmark judgment, overturning a 157-year-old law, was the outcome of a long-term campaign orchestrated by two amazing public-interest litigators, Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy. The fight has been hard. The LGBTQ+ community has battled on both legal and social fronts for decades-—for their fundamental rights, for privacy, for dignity, for safety and for love.” She went on, “Armed with a well-planned strategy that went beyond their well-researched legal arguments, Arundhati and Menaka became beacons of hope for the Indian LGBTQ+ community. Their perseverance and commitment led an entire community to a historic win by humanizing their struggles and giving them the freedom to love. As the Chief Justice said, “Constitutional morality cannot be martyred at the altar of social morality.” Arundhati and Menaka have helped take a giant step for LGBTQ rights in the world's largest democracy. In their committed fight for justice, they have shown us that we as a society must continue to make progress, even after laws are changed, and that we must make an effort to understand, accept and love. It is who we are as people.
  16. 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.

  17. My colleague, on a dull and drab Monday afternoon, talked about a show that had just come out on Hotstar and how intrigued she was by it, after watching the first episode. And she was right. It, in fact, caught my attention within the first 5 minutes and I was hooked, mostly by the character build-up. 'Criminal Justice', is a crime thriller, court drama, jail debauchery and police procedures, all rolled into one show, with a stellar cast that really brings out their character in the most gripping way possible. It's an adaptation of a show which was aired on BBC back in 2008, with the same name, written by Peter Moffat. This one has been adapted by Sridhar Raghavan and directed by Tingmanshu Dhulia and Vishal Furia. © Hotstar The show unravels a narrative which has been played on many times in the past, but what's thrilling is the different nuances describing the functionality of a particular space or pattern. For instance, the series took a great interest in how Aditya, the protagonist's life churned out, while he was spending time in jail. The story is simple and earthy, yet leaves you feeling quite gutted by the end of it. I reckon it's the character building that impacts the audience, more than anything else. © Hotstar The show revolves around a young bloke who plays football for his college. Seems fairly real, by the low-middle class framework that comes into play, while describing Aditya's (Vikrant Masey's) life in the show. After winning a local football tournament, the team decides to throw a party, where Aditya's presence is most favourable as he scores the winning goal for his team. When he reaches home, he's coaxed by his sister (Rucha Inamdar) to help his father drive their cab at night, which is owned by his brother-in-law and registered with 'First Cabs'. Aditya's very encapsulating, naive and innocent portrayal of a young boy who can never say 'no' is quite interesting. That's what the basic fundamental structure of the entire narrative is based on. © Hotstar While driving his cab at night, he gets a passenger he really didn't want in the first place as he was getting late for his party. When she refuses to get off, he's nothing but obligated to drop her to her destination. After she gets off, he realises she left her phone in his car and when he goes to give it back to her, she asks him to come inside and party with her instead, since she made him miss his own party. The two drink, hold conversations, drink some more while she slips him a pill, and right after they have ***. This is when you think she's that warped twisted character who'd do something rather ghastly, you're actually shocked beyond belief. When Aditya wakes up to find her stabbed to death! © Hotstar While the initial bit is fairly interesting, I am not going to go deeper into the story-line because you need to do that yourself but when the actual thread begins, it seems like the story will catch on as it should, but there are parts and scenes that are stretched out of proportion and are unnecessary. By that I mean the storyline could have been made shorter and crisper and in a 45-minute episode, there are a lot of aspects that could have been done away with. Hence the episodes lack the severity of tightness and some parts became dreary due to that in the show. Even so, the series is well adapted and presented and the character sketches are next to flawless. Here are three main aspects that made 'Criminal Justice' rather interesting: (1) Powerful Character Sketches Each character has a unique sensibility in the film and they've very clearly differentiated. For instance, Pankaj Tripathi playing Madhav Mishra is a breath of fresh air and unlike any other character, he has donned. He plays a calculative, selfish and money-minded lawyer who sparingly proves his worth through his cases until he gets stuck fighting Aditya's case. While long-surpassing guilt is eating up his life while he battles with severe eczema, his character has that goofiness that makes the viewer's experience a bit more lighter and joyful. © Hotstar Jackie Shroff, on the other hand, has a more capturing presence and a robust takeover, through the series. Mustafa, as he's called in the series is a serious gang lord in jail who takes Aditya under his protection, when is trying to deal with murder and sexual assault from the other criminals. Jackie's character gives one the certainty of hope and dilemma all at once. Each character is flawlessly perceived in the series. While the series could have caricatured clichéd characters, the ones who usually befit a crime drama, this one was more careful of that. (2) Brimming Realities Since the inception of the series until the end, the show also focuses on what happens when you're convicted in a crime. It's not just a murder mystery but a 'what's next' for Aditya, while he's fighting his battle. There's courtroom proceedings, police proceedings, jail-time drama, the effect of the case on the family, the lawyer's struggle and how cases re-open for investigation. It's got everything that goes in to battling the perfect crime and coming out of it fast-tracked and alive! The directors have made sure to play every nuance, without overplaying it and connect each parallel situation to the other. © Hotstar (3) It's Not Too Ostentatious While criminal dramas tend to overstretch and go into flamboyancy of their own, 'Criminal Justice' is a simple take on a murder mystery. It's not too over-the-top like most murder mysteries are and the characters seem real, justified and in place. There is nothing 'extra' and everything is well thought out. So, for an adapted murder mystery, the series has fared pretty well. © Hotstar Even with the best things pointed out in the show, the series does lack a stronger impact and crispness in its execution. Like I mentioned before, some episodes stretch without reason and lose the impact then and there. If you're not too keen on waiting and seeing who the real murderer is, there is a chance you may get bored with the unnecessary stretches. But the courtroom drama and case-solving situations make up for it fairly. All in all, 'Criminal Justice' has worked well as a genre choice on a digital platform, with its gripping character building, it still lacks freshness in its treatment and storyline. It's a good watch for sure if you're a murder mystery fanatic, and have a weekend to yourself.
  18. Salman Khan, or 'Bhai' as he is lovingly called in Bollwood, is not only known for his movies but for his extravagant habit of indulging in expensive assets. Here are 9 such assets owned by 'Bhai' which is making us fel very poor compared to him: 1. Gorai Beach home Mumbai beaches do not provide the Khan family with any exclusivity towards the beach so Salman 'bhai' has a legit gorgeous 5 BHK beach home which he bought on his 51st birthday. The insane property is spread across 100 acres and has a gym, a big swimming pool, a theatre, and the sea-facing bungalow also reportedly has a dirt bike arena for some more fun. As per reports, this cost him close to a Rs 100-crore hole in his pocket. © Instagram 2. Panvel Farmhouse This place is the resident party place for the family's parties for their friends. This place is spread lavishly over 150 acres of land and besides the usual gorgeous room, a gym, a swimming pool and all that jazz, this farm also house horses and other domesticated animals. Reportedly, this came with a price tag of some Rs 80 crore. 3. Triplex Flat In Bandra The Khan family currently resides in the famed 'Galaxy Apartments' but Salman Bhai invested in this 11-storey building which is currently under construction. Rumour has it that the family might shift into this Rs 30 crore abode here once it's done. 4. Private Yacht Obviously, all the jet set getaways to Alibaug and travelling to their beach homes require a wonderful private yacht by the Khan family. Reportedly, Salman and his bhais have a yacht which cost him a whopping Rs 3 crore. © Instagram 5.

  19. Delhi Police is assumed to be the most ostentatious, callous police force in the world, especially by the women who reside in the city. According to most people, they're always late, never follow proceedings as they're supposed to and always hamper vital evidence, with more and more cold cases piling up within their files. That's an assumption. I don't know if it's a fair or a just one, but it's an experiential assumption. I am not trying to bring the force into a bad light but everything that falls under the purview of the police should be scrutinised till its eventual end and to ward off these assumptions, we have the perfect case from their files, which completely changed the way Delhi Police represented itself in the city. © Twitter December 16th, 2012 was a normal day in the capital. It was exceptionally chilly and the city was donned in winter silence. The police, I am sure was set out doing their daily duties, filling the FIR logbook, while trying to rectify nuances which were at play negatively all around. They barely knew their lives were going to change forever after sunset. On one of their regular patrolling rounds, Delhi Police found a couple, naked on the side of the road. When they were brought to the hospital, wrapped in bed sheets, the boy was still conscious with bruises all over his body, while the girl was in agonising pain, whispering she'd been raped and violated with a rod, which was put in to her vagina and taken out, repeatedly. She whispered to the doctor that someone had pulled out flesh from inside her stomach. The statement made by this girl was the beginning of the end of Delhi Police's callous misconduct towards heinous crimes throughout the city. Nirbhaya sent shockwaves that were so riveting, no one could fathom how brutal this crime was. © Twitter Yes, it was the most brutal crime that had taken place in the capital where a young girl was badly beaten and bruised, raped and devoured antagonistically, her case had to be put on fast track. This is where Delhi Police showed the world their real face, their real mettle, as a valuable police force. They caught the perpetrators within 5 working days and gave Nirbhaya and the country what they needed- the perfect resolve, that it always sought. Almost 6 years after this crime was given due justice, Netflix released a series called 'Delhi Crime', which highlighted not the crime, but how it was dealt with, with every moment in dire speculation. Honestly, I couldn't sit through the series at first. Yes, it was intense but in more ways than one, it was a triggering point for someone who had no idea about the gravity of how and why it took place. 'Delhi Crime' effortlessly and carefully peeled layers of successful tribulation of the victim, her family, her friend and what the police went through on that ill-fated night. © Netflix "I have a family friend in the Delhi Police and he retired six years back. He'd seen my previous work and kind of knew me and my style, so he suggested we do a film on this six years back. I told him that I don't think it's a good idea at all. He asked to read the first verdict that had come out in the sessions court, back in 2013. He offered that he'll introduce me to some more officers involved if I was interested, and if you feel there's a story there, then go for it" Richie Mehta, the director told us in an interview, while revealing the truest sculpture of the series. The series is divided in to seven parts and it's a clear focus on the dedication Delhi Police has shown towards solving the crime in a short duration. It's an apt reconstruction of the case which was handled very professionally and aesthetically by the cast and the crew. Usually, cinematic reconstructions of crimes such as rape and sexual abuse are callously handled by filmmakers in the country. There is little or no research that goes into reconstructing a crime and even if there is, most of it is secondary. 'Delhi Crime', on the other hand, took care of every intricate nuance featured in the series. For instance, even though the film was about the heinous crime that took place, it deliberately focused more on how the perpetrators were brought to justice and not so much on how the victim went through the darkest hour of her life. The series made unsubtle references to the recreation of the crime that took place in the bus, when the victim narrated it out loud, the injuries she succumbed to and the way she dealt with it all. Everything was created in complete discretion, keeping the societal triggers in mind. But even so, every bit of it was nerve-gripping. © Netflix "There were certain basic things that were non-negotiable to me. Like, no way will I show the crime and there was no chance of that. You wouldn't even sounds of the crime, that is off limits. This was about people perpetrating the crime and other people dealing with it. One big mandate was based visually. The style of shooting would be as a by-standard. If we can remove as much judgement as possible from my standpoint. If you're doing a scene and you're in a car, the camera is behind you, as if you're just sitting in the car. We don't do the front shots. You're looking at everyone else, as if you're sitting there. And if you're in the police station, the movie camera is on the cinematographer's shoulder , they get up and go in to the hallway and we go with them. So, that mandate was reflective of taking a non-judgmental approach." said Richie. © Twitter The opening credits of the series tell us that they were directly inspired from the original case files. While I am off the notion that additional fiction was added to the series to create that extra 'thrill', I wasn't sensitised to the fact that the light the police were presented in would steal focus from the rest of the characters and the facts that were shown very limitedly. It came as a slow realisation that other things actively happening around the time Nirbhaya was in the hospital and when her perpetrators were roaming free, were not given much screen time. There were protests that broke out, civil society and women welfare NGOs that demanded justice, student bodies, politicians and her family reacting to the situation was put at bay to valorise the police. While it's fair this content might have been created to redeem the functioning of Delhi Police and spill their truth, it certainly sidelined a lot of important aspects, especially the burste of identity Delhi was gathering through its people at the time. © Netflix The constant reminder of how the police is understaffed and not paid enough and how ill-equipped they are financially and otherwise in comparison to other countries like America, came up again and again in the show. This was one thing that didn't settle in too well for me, but then everyone loves a good cop story and this was mostly about that. "There was a turning point for me when one sub-inspector I was speaking told me about a heinous crime he was investigating. And after he told me that, I asked him if he still believed in people and he said 'ya ya for sure'. And I asked him why does he believe in people if he deals in this evil every day. He then told me there are 17 million people in Delhi at night and 40,000 officers. 70% are used for VIP and traffic, so do the math on how many officers are keeping the peace. They can't prevent a crime from happening before, statistically. Which means the only thing keeping the peace 24 hours a day are the people and they're doing it" said Richie. © Netflix Even though it seems like the story is one-sided, the character sketches are very strongly put forth in the show. Every character seems almost real, like we're reliving the exact same crime through them. That's also because the actors chose to play the part put their heart in soul to showcase an extremely sensitive issue. For instance, the DCP's character carried out by Shefali Shah was ruthless yet comforting. Her character was drawn from the real life DCP Chhayya Sharma, who handled Nirbhaya's case back in 2012. Shefali's character made a rogue statement which was much needed at the time. Not just for the fallen faith in the police force but for the a heinous crime like this in the city and she absolutely carved her way through a beautiful character sketch. Shefali feels if there wasn't a woman handling the case, it would probably not be done with so much focus and precision. Not because of anything else, but because the angst the DCP has experienced back then was more empathetic towards the victim, because she was a woman. "She really wanted to get them and the fact that she was a woman, it probably got cracked so fast and she took it personally" Shefali opened up about her role. © Twitter While talking about whether or not this incident or even this show has changed the defination of safety in India, she went on to say: ''I stopped travelling by public transport a long time ago and I am really not in a space to sit and say I feel safer. After this what I know, the way this was investigated, we're not completely thrown to the winds. There are people who care, there are people who work really hard to keep us safe. There is always a balance of good or bad and if there wasn't can you imagine what would happen to this country?" Although the show wasn't uncomfortable or traumatic for her to do, it was emotionally exhausting but empowering to step in to the shoes of someone who actually burnt the midnight oil and found the ones responsible for the crime. © Facebook 'Delhi Crime', although has its triggers and biases every now and then, it still showcases the vast mentality that exists in our country and the level some men can stoop down to teach women a 'lesson' they rather learn and/or be raped. It's an eye-opener definitely and for those of you who didn't know or understand the brutality the crime exposed, can really take a peek inside and feel the anguish everyone including the cast members went through when they had to enact it out. It's definitely a must watch and if at any point you do get triggered while watching it, you can always remember Nirbahaya aka Jyoti Singh who tried her best to face her fears till the end, till she gave up her life for a million women residing in this country.

  20. Adapting a novel for the screen is a risky business; it either creates history or is panned by book-lovers for eternity. Go overboard with characters and the literary fandom will shed you to pieces and if you don't show enough character development, the audience will lose interest. Not every movie can match the excellence of the novels which they are adapted from, the adaptations have to play on just the right chord or else the entire movie falls apart. via GIPHY Sometimes the actors don't work or if they work the script fails to live up to the novel's intensity. Even more challenging is changing the plot; some directors twist the ending or alter plot points to make it more desirable and intriguing, case in point, 'The Lord of The Rings', which worked phenomenally for the movie, but other adaptations aren't that lucky, looking at the 'Divergent' series. via GIPHY With a throng of books being turned into movies, 2019 seems to be the “Year of Novel-to-Movie Adaptation”. Here are six of the most anticipated adaptations to grace the screen this year: 1. Little Women: © Columbia Pictures Set in Massachusetts, with the Civil War as the backdrop, the story focusses on the four March sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, as they come of age in a new America. Vividly different than the other, each with their own personalities and ambitions, the girls learn something new about life and themselves, guided by their mother, lovingly called “Marmee”. Starring Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, Meryl Streep among others, this adaptation of the famous novel by Louisa May Alcott is one of the most anticipated movies of 2019. Emma Watson is taking on the role of the eldest daughter, dreamy and soft-spoken Meg, (after Emma Stone dropped out of the project) which should be a cakewalk for her given her previous roles as Hermione and Belle; strong, resilient characters with a soft but solid disposition. (Though, I would have preferred her to be Jo!) In a Ladybird reunion of sorts, accent-queen Saoirse will star as the second daughter, headstrong and quick-witted Jo, the creative genius in the family, alongside Timothée Chalamet who will play Laurie (and looks a lot like him), the handsome neighbour who strikes up a friendship with the four girls. Given that the 1994 version starring Susan Sarandon (Marmee March), Winona Ryder (Jo) and Christian Bale (Laurie), has been the undisputed king of all the adaptations till date, the movie will have to live up to its name; Saoirse and Timothée have some very big shoes to fill! The casting is the best part of the movie: Laura Dern as Marmee and Meryl Streep as the cantankerous Aunt March are well-suited to their roles. So are the March sisters; we couldn't have asked for better actors. The person to look out for would be Eliza Scanlan who plays Beth March, the sweet-natured and innocent March sibling whom everyone loves; a dynamically different role than her manipulative Amma Crelin in Sharp Objects. Directed by Greta Gerwig of Ladybird fame and its Oscar-nominated cast, it sure is to make its own mark in adaptation history. Also, an element to look forward to is the plot changes which Greta seems to have made to make the story more relevant. Date of Release: December 25, 2019 2. The Woman in the Window: © 20th Century Fox Anna Fox is a recluse; a formerly celebrated child psychologist who spends her time drinking wine, watching movies and spying on her neighbours through her window. Then one night, everything changes when on her spying spree, she witnesses something she wasn't supposed to in the home of her new neighbours, the seemingly-perfect Russells. Is what she saw true or was she still under the influence of her nectar: the alcohol? Will she be able to prove it? Dealing with themes of suspense, intrigue and agoraphobia, this A.J Finn thriller novel is set to release Featuring Amy Adams as the aforementioned woman, and directed by Joe Wright, the psychological thriller movie also stars Gary Oldman and Julianne Moore as the Russells. The role seems to be right up Amy Adams' alley, since we have seen her play intense, dramatic characters with scarred pasts and secrets, most recently as Camille Preaker in Gillian Flynn's novel's adaptation 'Sharp Objects'. She is sure to bring Dr Anna's anguish to life with her stellar portrayal. Date of Release: October 4, 2019 3. The Rhythm Section: © Paramount Pictures When Stephanie Patrick's life is upended after an airplane crash that kills all her loved ones, she turns to drugs and prostitution for solace and as a coping mechanism to stop the unravelling of her life. Vexed on finding out that the crash wasn't an accident but the work of a terrorist organization, she vows to take revenge. In order to do that she enlists into a dubious intelligence organization which promises to lead her to the terrorists, if she completes their questionable assignments. Mark Burnell's novel's lead, Stephanie, is a gritty, no-nonsense, fascinating woman who can go to any lengths to achieve her goal and bring the preparators to justice. Starring Blake Lively (as Stephanie), Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown among others, and directed by Reed Morano, it's to be seen whether the movie can match the pace of the book. Date of Release: November 22, 2019 4. Artemis Fowl: © Walt Disney Pictures Teenage genius Artemis Fowl is on a mission to rescue his father from the Russian Mafia and restore his family's fortunes. The catch? His father is a known criminal. Starting off as an anti-hero, he captures Holly Short, the head fairy of the LEPrecon (the fairy police), hoping to extort gold from them and becoming rich; as a first step in his quest to his free his father. He is helped all the way by his trusted bodyguard, Butler, as they embark on more adventures. Based on Eoin Colfer's novels of the same name, the movie is to adapt the first two novels for the movie version. Directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Ferdia Shaw, Judi Dench, Lara McDonell, Nonso Anozie and Josh Gad in main roles, this Disney film is bound to be full of spectacular special and visual effects. A visual delight for sure! Date of Release: August 9, 2019 5. The Goldfinch: © Warner Bros Pictures Donna Tartt's eponymous novel is set to feature on screen in a movie directed by John Crowley. Theo Decker is a teenager who has known tragedy very early on in his life. He is a survivor of a terrorist bombing at a museum which sadly claimed his mother. His only solace is the painting his mother loved at the museum, The Goldfinch, which he had secretly taken from the museum after the bombing. But as he grows up, it is this innocent act of taking the painting that propels his life into a series of adventures which eventually lead him to the underground world of art forgeries and crime. Along with his friend Boris, he embarks on new experiences which don't turn out to be exactly what he had imagined. Starring Ansel Elgort as the adult Theo and Aneurin Barnard as Boris, the movie is sure to be a good adaptation, given the actors chosen to portray the characters. Nicole Kidman and Luke Wilson also star in supporting roles as socialite Mrs Barbour and Larry Decker (Theo's idler father) respectively. Date of Release: October 11. 2019 6. Where'd You Go, Bernadette? © Annapurna Pictures Based on the novel by Maria Semple, Bernadette is an agoraphobic mother of a 15-year old daughter, Bee Branch, who hates everybody around her, especially her neighbour, Audrey. Though Bernadette wasn't always like this, she has now become a housebound recluse, a far departure from her once successful career as a feted architect. One fine day, a few days before a planned Antarctica tour which was to be Bee's gift, Bernadette goes missing and now Bee must take on the difficult task of finding her mother before it's too late. Cate Blanchett will star as Bernadette Fox, with Emma Nelson as Bee, along with Judy Greer as Dr Kurtz and Kristen Wiig as the annoying neighbour, Audrey. Given the comedic elements of the book, Cate is Blanchett is sure to nail the character's idiosyncrasies and with Kristen Wiig as Audrey, it is bound to be a laugh riot. Judy Greer as Dr Kurtz is the perfect choice for the role and so is Billy Crudup as Bee's genius father, Elgin Branch. Let's hope the mystery behind Bernadette's disappearance is as intriguing as it is in the novel. Date of Release: August 9, 2019 Which one are you most excited for?
  21. We Indians are the most 'Desi' beings of the lot. No matter where we go, and what we do, we always carry a bit of our history, culture and desi-ness with us everywhere. And honestly, we pride ourselves on it, just as we should. While there is no shame in being your Desi-est self at any given point, it also comes with its own set of drawbacks. Drawbacks such as the ones that can destroy your international travel plans, or worse, make your passport invalid for future use. Imagine going through the same, arduous drill of applying for a passport at the local passport office. Scary, right? © Thinkstock/Getty Images Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened to a Kerala local when his wife decided to put her Desi-ness to extreme use on his passport, by turning it into a handy, easy-to-carry phone book and grocery list! In a video that is doing the rounds on social media, a young man can be seen showing an Indian passport that belongs to his father, and describing what has happened to it in his mother-tongue. Turns out, his mother used her father's passport to carry out the most desi thing ever. Scribbling phone numbers on its pages. What's more, the last few pages of the passport turn into full-fledged grocery shopping list! © Facebook Even though he later adds that it was his father's old passport, this still shouldn't be taken lightly, because old as well as new passports are equally important, and shouldn't be defiled or meddled with in any way.
  22. When Forbes released this year's '30 under 30' list, there was only one actor in it, and no, he wasn't from Bollywood. Vijay Deverakonda, the latest heartthrob of Telugu cinema, won the prestigious accolade, and it definitely is a reminder of the fact that regional cinema is as impactful as Bollywood (if not more), and it's time we start bringing them to the forefront. The handsome actor, best known for his breakthrough movie 'Arjun Reddy', is as brilliant in terms of his style game, as he is when it comes to acting. Here are 10 images that establish our claim. 1.

  23. Considering the fact that it's the first thing we put on in the morning as we get ready to face the day, it's almost criminal how little thought we put into picking out our underwear. The same applies to underwear shopping as well - most of us just grab the same type we always buy, without so much as a second thought, and repeat the same process time after time. After all, it's only underwear, right? No one else is going to see it, so what difference does it make if it's the same style (and sometimes even colour!) that you've been wearing for years? Well, we've got a newsflash for you! Picking out your underwear is one of the most personal and private decisions you can make when it comes to menswear. After all, you wear it right next to your skin all day. It plays a vital role in ensuring that you feel comfortable throughout the day regardless of what you're doing. Making the wrong choice leaves you open to a whole host of annoying problems including excessive sweating, irritating itchiness, and repeated adjustments. So, unless you're okay with spending the whole day with your hands stuffed down your pants, it's high time you paid as much attention to what's going into your underwear drawer as you do to the other contents of your closet. That's not to say that underwear shopping has to be boring, pricey, or time-consuming. A little knowledge about the variety of underwear options available to you is all it takes to ensure your comfort every day. That's exactly what we hope to provide with this extensive guide to the best underwear for men, which will make underwear shopping as comfortable and satisfying an experience as the products themselves. But First, A 'Brief' Guide To Buying Your Briefs: 1) Fit: Ill-fitting underwear can play havoc with your daily routine, which is why it's extremely important to pick up the right size of underwear (especially if you're experimenting with different brands). If it's too large, you'll spend the whole day pulling them up. If it's too small, it'll cut off the blood supply to your nether regions, and you don't need us to tell you that that's not a pleasant sensation! 2) Fabric: Cotton is the tried and tested material here, but there has been a lot of innovation in this department in recent times, which means there are many more options. Various other cotton blends and fibres come with their own pros and cons. For a luxurious experience, you might indulge in some silk boxer shorts. Similarly, spandex or lycra trunks underneath your workout attire or mesh or lenzing modal underwear with your running shorts is a smart choice. 3) Colour: The world of men's fashion is ever-changing, and you're not limited to solid colours or simple stripes or checks any more. An attractive print might catch your partner's eye when things get hot and heavy in the bedroom. You can also sport printed boxers bearing the logo of your favourite superheroes or cartoon characters during a weekend movie marathon. Just be sure you don't mix up the two! 4) Brand: When it comes to underwear, most men tend to have a fierce loyalty towards a particular brand. We're not saying there's anything wrong with that, we just recommend keeping an open mind. Who knows, you might be missing out on the perfect fit or style by refusing to try out another brand's offerings! So there you have it, guys - it's time for an underwear overhaul. Broaden your horizons and restock your underwear drawer with a variety of styles, fits, colours and fabrics based on your particular needs! Looking For The Best Underwear For Men? Here's A Helpful Guide 1. Saxx Men's Fiesta Boxers © Amazon Let's start on an upbeat note with a literal party in your pants, with these Fiesta boxers from Saxx. The design is the result of a collaboration between rally driver and Saxx ambassador Ken Block, Hoonigan Racing Division and kinetic street artist Felipe Pantone.

Not only is it eye-catching, it's supremely comfortable as well. When you consider how much time you spend concentrating on the race while seated in a cramped space, comfort is a feature you'd expect the manufacturers to address. Along with the mesh side panels, the cotton in the fabric is moisture-wicking, so you're kept cool at all times. The viscose is not only smooth and doesn't trap body heat, but also retains its colour very well thereby ensuring the longevity of the boxers.

  24. Congress and BJP have never ever shied away from taking potshots at each other online, much to our amusement. I mean, two major political parties trying to troll one another will always be hilarious to me and also give people second-hand embarrassment, especially when it's not at all subtle, they go at it with direct hits. The last dig I remember is BJP releasing a 'Gully Boy' style rap against Rahul Gandhi and Congress last month, and the gif replies by Congress and AAP confirmed that we're in the weirdest timeline. Now, Congress is out here making memes out of PM Modi and the timeline is getting weirder and weirder. Today morning, the official Twitter account of Congress shared a thread listing out PM Modi's 'greatest hits' and it's not what you would expect. “Modi's greatest hits” pic.twitter.com/c58jS9uqH5 — Congress (@INCIndia) March 28, 2019 There's a dig at 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign. pic.twitter.com/aB0nEsTstH — Congress (@INCIndia) March 28, 2019 Okay, then. pic.twitter.com/RPZeecty4R — Congress (@INCIndia) March 28, 2019 And, the last one, and the most common one as well, I guess. pic.twitter.com/1gICMBwsZe — Congress (@INCIndia) March 28, 2019 I really want to see PM Modi's exact reaction to this, I really do. Well, I'm like 100% sure BJP is already making a video as a rebuttal. Well, let the Hunger Games begin.
  25. Whispers are rife that Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor are ready to take their relationship to the next level, as the lovebirds are reportedly set to tie the knot on April 2019. Both remained tight-lipped about their relationship, in the beginning, and made it official last year with their first public appearance. However, when Malaika was asked about her impending wedding rumours on a chat show she replied, "This is all media made. Media is responsible for it." Ever since his entry in the industry, Arjun Kapoor has been in the news over his relationships with his female co-stars and rumoured affairs. From dating Salman Khan's younger sister, Arpita Khan, to his sister-in-law, Malaika Arora; the 'Gunday' heartthrob has had a list of prominent women in his life. Let's have a look. © Twitter Arpita Khan Sharma Salman Khan's youngest sister Arpita was reportedly in a relationship with Arjun and the pair dated for over two years. Speaking about his relationship, Arjun had once said, "My first and only serious relationship so far was with Arpita Khan. We started seeing each other when I was 18 and it lasted for two years…” © Pintrest Anushka Sharma Though it was never confirmed whether they dated or not, Arjun's affection and love for Anushka was not concealed from anyone in the industry. A few times, on the 'Koffee with Karan' show, Arjun had overtly expressed his yearning to marry the 'NH 10' girl. The duo was seen several times together at theatres and coffee shops but never admitted to anything. © Twitter Sonakshi Sinha The fact that Arjun dated Sonakshi has been one of Bollwyood's biggest tight-lipped secrets. Not only did they both date for a while, but they also had an ugly face-off while breaking up, according to reports. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Arjun commented on his unsuccessful relationship with her. He said, “There is no pressure on either of us to maintain an equation beyond a certain amount of time." © Twitter Athiya Shetty Soon after her debut in 'Hero', Athiya Shetty and Arjun Kapoor were seen in public together more than often. However, none of them ever acknowledged or confirmed anything. Arjun had once said in an interview, "She (Athiya) and I have known each other for many years. I don't understand why there is sudden speculation. But it is part and parcel of the film industry and I am getting used to it as that it is how things happen." © Twitter Now, we don't really need to elaborate much on what's brewing between the 'Chaiyya Chaiyya' girl and Arjun. If the reports are anything to go by, the duo seems to be pretty serious about their relationship and will probably tie the knot this year.
