  1. When it comes to Bollywood, we guess we all can agree that our filmmakers have come a long way from where they began, and have given us some truly amazing movies in recent time. BUT, then there are some movies that are so senseless that their very existence makes us question our faith in Bollywood. However, not all of them are bad when you are high on 'bhaang' and want to waste your time doing nothing but watch a movie where you don't need logic. Since it's Holi today, we decided to share a list of movies that only make sense or you can sit through, after having a nice dose of good old 'bhaang'. 1. Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahaani Everything the writers thought was right was exactly what was wrong with the film - right from the CGI, costumes, storyline, huge list of actors, a ghost bride to the main lead turning into a snake, car, bike...truck, bus, ship, a walking flamethrower and every possible thing imaginable. Shankar Movies Manisha Koirala singing 'Aaja' was probably us asking our brains to come back. 2. Love Story 2050 Hrithik Roshan's doppelganger falls in love with Priyanka Chopra's character, who dies in an accident. To bring her back he decides to go back in time but instead, gets transported to 2050. If only he could have brought back some logic in that same time machine, things would have been easier for the ones watching it. Baweja Movies 3. Aap Kaa Surroor: The Moviee - The Real Luv Story Don't ask about logic here because it's as pointless as the number of ee's and aa's in the movie name. All we know is that the movie was shot in Germany and the writer made sure that everyone remembers this by the end of the movie. Also, since when did Germany have Indian auto rickshaws and why were we not told about this? Mehboob Studio 4. What's Your Raashee? After watching this I am sure a lot of us asked ourselves, "What's my IQ?" Again, the movie stars Hrithik's doppelganger Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra in the lead. The movie is basically about Harman meeting one woman from every zodiac sign so that he can decide whom to marry. Wow! If weddings were this twisted, half the people would have gone bald scratching their heads. UTV Motion Pictures 5. Action Replayy The film is based on 'Back To The Future' and features Aditya Roy Kapur as a son who travels back in time to make his parents fall in love with each other. Another time-travel movie where the script only led us to the time machine and nothing else. Blockbuster Movie Entertainers 6. Cash What started off as a diamond heist soon turns into a vicious battle where everyone was fighting everyone. The characters were fighting for their lives, the audience was fighting to get their money back and our brain was fighting for sitting through that. Seven Entertainment Ltd. 7. Fool N Final The only thing this movie gave us is the fact that gangsters' names can be weirder than a Bengali child's 'daak naam'. Moscow Chikna, Gunmaster G9...seriously? We won't blame you if you forgot about this movie's existence. Shemaroo Entertainment 8. Himmatwala All we have to say about this one is that if you manage to sit through the whole movie you're the real himmatwala. Also, it's not your bro, but a tiger who's the best wingman in the whole world. UTV Motion Pictures 9. Rudraksh Bipasha Basu plays a paranormal researcher, who's trying to gain "knowledge that cannot be explained by science or logic", which pretty much explains the whole movie. Off all the characters in the movie, it was the laser-shooting eyed CGI rat we felt really bad for. Karma Entertainment 10. Race 3 'Race 3' does not only make your brain leave your body, but it also makes sure that your brain hates you so much that it never comes back to you. And if you saw it in 3D, you deserve our respect. The exact moment when we saw our brain and logic leaving our body was when this happened - "Our business is our business, none of your business." Salman Khan Films In case, you feel that you still have time to watch more such interesting stuff, you can watch 'Sasural Simar Ka' and 'Naagin' too.
  2. Sundays are meant to prepare you for the dreaded Monday blues and a long week ahead. You've probably bathed, eaten, and you're back in bed, browsing Netflix or maybe skipping through YouTube videos. Looking for a little something to tickle your funny bone? Well, if you're a true blue Punjabi movie fan, this list maybe done and dusted for you. If not, then here are a few recommendations for your Sunday binge. Most of these movies are easily available on Netflix and Amazon Prime, so subtitles won't be an issue. 1. Carry On Jatta (Part 1 & 2) This has to be on your list. Trust me, this movie and its sequel never ever disappoint. A man caught in a web of lies, with so many hilarious characters thrown into one frame, this will have you ROFL like never before. 2. Jatt & Juliet (Part 1 & 2) Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa never disappoint in this cop drama series which has part romance and a lot of comedy thrown into it. Also the sound track of the movies is quite good. 3. Vadhaiyan Ji Vadhaiyan This one is a comedy of errors which is nothing short of a laugh riot. If you want to watch a no-brainer, slapstick comedy which leaves you gasping for breath, just watch this and you're sorted. 4. Manje Bistre This one stars the gorgeous Sonam Bajwa and is a comedy movie with a Punjabi wedding in the background. The second part is already in the making. 5. Ambarsariya Another comedy featuring Diljit Dosanjh, which is a comedy of mistaken identity, and some peppy music to go with it. Even if you're not a pro at Punjabi, these movies will lighten up your Sunday like nothing else.
  3. Tom Hanks is unquestionably a gem in Hollywood. If it comes to picking out the most talented and versatile actors in the world, his name is a must in the list, even if we keep Meryl Streep at the top. In a career spanning over 40 years now, Hanks has worked in multi-genre films. He is not only director Steven Spielberg showman; in-fact is the audience's favourite too. Till date, Hanks has worked in a plethora of films that have grossed billions of dollars at the box office and his performances have inspired both his co-stars and young actors. In this post, you will get to know about his best performances. Here is a list of the 10 best Tom Hanks films that shifted the narrative around performance-oriented films: 1. Forrest Gump (1994) Tom Hanks became a household name for his career-defining role in 'Forrest Gump'. The film helped in establishing him as a perfect mainstream star eligible for the toughest of roles which were on his way. Not only did Hanks earn an Academy Award for playing the lead in the film (he got his first Oscar for 'Philadelphia'), this was one role that no one else could have done better than Hanks. 'Forrest Gump' also won five other Academy Awards in major categories including the one for Best Picture, just when it was competing against heavyweight films like 'The Shawshank Redemption' and 'Pulp Fiction'. The year 1995 thus became a glorious year for Tom Hanks, director Robert Zemeckis and 'Forrest Gump' and an unforgettable one for movie buffs. 2. Philadelphia (1993) The 1993 film 'Philadelphia' showed us how versatile Tom Hanks could be. Whether it was Andrew (Hanks) losing himself to the tunes of Maria Callas' powerful opera or giving the members in the court a glimpse of his lesions, he dedicated himself to every scene in the film. Directed by Jonathan Demme, 'Philadelphia' happened to be the first mainstream film that acknowledged the theme of HIV/AIDS, homosexuality, and homophobia. Hanks received his first ever Oscar for the film and gathered appraise for his moving performance from critics and fans all over the world. The film was pronounced to be a definite AIDS movie by Seattle Post-Intelligencer. 3. Big (1989) The list is incomplete without us giving a mention about 'Big'. Josh Baskin's (Hanks) wish of growing into an adult comes true overnight. Hanks succeeded in capturing the very essence of his character and thus gave one of his most iconic performances ever. Directed by Penny Marshall, the film has been termed as 'undeniably funny' and 'refreshing' by the critics. It also earned Hanks his first ever Academy nomination in the year 1990. 'Big' became a trendsetter in the league of age-changing comedies including 'Like Father Like Son' (1987) and '18 Again!' (1988). 4. Saving Private Ryan (1998) Playing the United States Army Ranger Captain John H. Miller could have been one of the most challenging roles in Tom Hanks's career. 'Saving Private Ryan' has remained one of the most talked about films coming from the actor. Hanks shone the brilliance of a heavy-weight performance and the film went on to be regarded as one of the most watched World War II movies of all time. Hanks has always remained a favourable choice of director Steven Spielberg who further cast him in several films thereafter including his 2017 film 'The Post'. For the 71st Academy Awards, Hanks received a nomination in the Best Actor category for this film. 'Saving Private Ryan' was nominated in a total of 11 categories. Hanks captured the very essence of his part and made the audience see both the heroic and civilian side of it. 5. Cast Away (2000) It was the fifth time in 2001 that Hanks was nominated for an Oscar for playing a lead actor (though he didn't win this one). Directed and co-produced by Robert Zemeckis, 'Cast Away' re-established Hanks's image as an 'everyman' in Hollywood due to the variation in the roles played by him. 'Cast Away' chronicles Chuck Noland's journey who fights for his survival on an inhabited island after his aeroplane crashes in the South Pacific. The film turned out to be a commercial and critical success and brought Hanks to limelight again. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hanks stated that he wanted to examine the very idea of four years of hopelessness especially in the absence of food, water, shelter, and company! 'Cast Away' is a must watch Tom Hanks film. 6. The Terminal (2004) Another path-breaking film happened when Hanks decided to work again with Steven Spielberg in the 2004 comedy-drama 'The Terminal'. As Hanks played Viktor Navorski (a man with an Eastern European-Russian mix nationality), it actually made people believe about the existence of the otherwise fictional country Krakozhia. Thanks to his deep understanding of accents and dialects! The film follows the story of Navorski who is denied entry into the United States and therefore goes on to live at the John F. Kennedy Airport terminal for nine long months. Inspired by real-life events, Spielberg's film got huge attention and mostly positive reviews; Hanks' performance was the soul of the film. The movie comes with a feel-good message and Hanks was able to deliver it without a scintilla of doubt. 7. Captain Phillips (2013) Hanks's stint as a merchant mariner Captain Richard Phillips in 'Captain Phillips' has remained one of his most serious roles of all time. A smart-powerful performance by Hanks made this film a Hollywood biopic done right. Paul Greengrass's direction also received acclaim from the critics. In the film, Phillips is taken hostage by pirates in the Guardafui Channel (based on a real incident). The flick was nominated for six Academy Awards, while Hanks received a Golden Globe nomination for his compelling act. 8. Bridge of Spies (2015) Historic-drama 'Bridge of Spies' directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg turned out to be another film, Tom Hanks received praise for. With his compelling performance, Hanks made this story, set during the cold war, an intensely gripping tale. Hanks played James B. Donovan, a lawyer who defends a spy of the Soviet Union (played by Mark Rylance). One can clearly see Hanks weaving a rather interesting character as he goes on to give Rylance an equal opportunity to perform, thus not ending up overpowering his aura. Their lawyer-spy companionship got the film the best picture nomination during the 2016 Academy Awards. 9. Apollo 13 (1995) Ron Howard's 'Apollo13' happened to be an adventure-filled tale especially for Tom Hanks, who gave a memorable and moving performance for his fans as the Apollo 13 Commander Jim Lovell. Hanks worked together with Kevin Bacon and Bill Paxton in a larger part of the film and established an exact image the audience was expecting from this role. There was much clarity to Hanks's character in the film. He once mentioned to AMC, “From Apollo 7 on up, I lived this stuff.” The movie was nominated for nine Academy Awards and grossed over $355 million worldwide. 10. Sully: Miracle on the Hudson (2016) 'Sully' is the first ever actor-director collaboration between Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood. The film is inspired by the real incident of Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (played by Hanks) landing an aeroplane on the Hudson River, thus saving all passengers on the flight. Though the film received average reviews from the critics, its commercial success was undoubtedly on Hanks's shoulders. Hanks was also given the Hollywood Actor Award for this role.
  4. Bollywood is no more a door which opens only for Indians and 'desis' residing outside thriving on K3G and Rajshri Productions movies. Bollywood has crossed borders and broken cultural barriers for India in many countries and lately, China's intriguing affair with Hindi movies has only grown with time, and here are 5 movies which have helped in the process : 1. Dangal Aamir Khan enjoys a special place in the hearts of the Chinese audience and is already a household name in the country. China's first introduction with Khan's talent was back in 2001 when 'Lagan' was released there. The appetite wasn't much back then but now, he is clearly a famous name. His portrayal of a determined father giving it his all to train his daughters for wrestling is something that the audience loved. 2. Padman Akshay Kumar is another actor who enjoys great popularity in China. The audience there fell in love with the entrepreneur's dedication to his wife in the movie, which led to a life-altering moment for women in rural sectors. 3. Secret Superstar Aamir is clearly like royalty in China and all his movies end up on the 'must-watch' list eventually. This was one which also touched the hearts of the Chinese audience with a simple story of a girl harbouring big dreams. 4. Bajrangi Bhaijaan Let's just say even China couldn't resist the magic of Salman Khan ( that's not us but the data that claims how his movies are blockbusters). This movie ended up making over 238 million Yuan in China. 5. Hindi Medium You might wonder why a story of an urban couple running around the circles of society to get their son admitted in a desirable school struck a chord with the Chinese audience. The thing is that the dilemma of parents trapped in an urban set up with limited resources had a universal appeal. So the subject was what made the movie work well in China. Following suit is Ayushmann Khurrana's 'Andhadhun' which is now all set to release in China as 'Piano Man'.
  5. Very recently, I was at a bar catching a live music band play and when I turned to my right, and in the corner I could see Zoya Akhtar swaying to the beats. She was effortlessly sophisticated and quite poised and celebrated her drink in her hand, just like all the men in her movies celebrate their emotions openly. © Pinterest It got me thinking though. I haven't seen one Zoya movie where the men don't portray themselves to be flawed emotional beings, who're every inch vulnerable and real. Men who're human and don't play with the stereotypical domain of 'macho', just like most Bollywood movies do. Her men are classy yet sensitive, who admire their insecurities, only to improve upon them. They're timelessly changing and evolving and that's something fairly evident in her movies. © Eros International While I stood there with this thought dangling in my head, I kept thinking how many of us really emulate true hardcore men, who're in touch with their real emotions? I started thinking of all the men who've acted in her movies and how delicate yet firm their character sketch truly is and how real they actually feel. These are the new-age men, who're stable yet bashful, dedicated yet vulnerable, in tune with their vices but know and understand the need of the hour. © Amazon Prime And I believe one must aspire to be like them, because real men who're accountable and flawed while being vulnerable are the actual deal. Here are 6 characters from Zoya Akhtar films all men could aspire to be like while leaving their pressured machismo behind. (1) Ranveer Singh As Kabir Mehra In 'Dil Dhadakne Do' © Eros International Yes, he plays an absolute spoilt brat, like most rich Delhi boys are perhaps, but there is humanness in him and the will to stand up to his family, when the time demands him to. That's what boys, who're slowly evolving in to men, do. Stick together, fight for what is right, cry when they fall weak and agree to play certain games, to win back a plane! But in all seriousness, Kabir's character reflects upon a man who you can count on, in a time of need and who'll go to any degree to help someone out, at the risk of losing his own peace. But he has his flaws, because he's only human, right? (2) Aamir Khan As Surjan Singh Shekawat In 'Talaash' © Reliance Entertainment Even though the role demanded a staunch, serious cop who is trying to dismantle his own frame of mind to revise answers, Shekawat's role is a diminishing portrayal of someone who has let go of life because of his own fears. The role showcases Aamir Khan as a cop who is trying to solve a case after he's lost his own son in an accident and every trial and tribulation a man goes through after a heavy loss, while trying to live up to his responsibilities is beautifully represented in Aamir's character. Something we all can relate to, if we've gone through loss. (3) Farhan Akhtar As Sunny Gill In 'Dil Dhadakne Do' © Eros International This character has almost all the girls wishing he wasn't fictional because he seems so malleable otherwise. Farhan played a grounded and caring boy who'd left the love of his life to pursue his career. He came back to her though but apart from the obvious character traits, there are some underlying qualities Sunny possessed that made him so effortlessly relatable. For instance, calling out the patriarchal toxicity and asking pertinent questions such as: "why is it that women need to 'seek' permission in the first place?". He's the quintessential and actual boy next door, who truly understands warped societal norms and stands up against them. (4) Abhay Deol As Kabir Dewan In 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' © Eros International Abhay aka Kabir plays a confused person who's not very sure of what he wants in the beginning, reminding us of how we were unsure of everything we did and didn't do. From his quest to escape his fiancée because he'd proposed to her by mistake to him having a breakdown about it amidst his friends is definitely us, when things go a little out of control. He didn't hide his emotions, or act macho about 'I can handle my own shit'. He cried about it when he needed help and manned up the courage to finally end things with his fianceé because he didn't love her. Kabir is practically every guy in his late 20s, trying to figure life out. (5) Siddhant Chaturvedi As MC Sher In 'Gully Boy' © AA Films The beautifully sketched out character of MC Sher in 'Gully Boy' is of that friend we have who always has our back, no matter how badly we mess up a situation and she's caricatured the character till a point where we think of that one person who has stuck around, after we see MC Sher on the screen. His character speaks to us in a real and relatable way just like how a friend would, if we ever found ourselves down in the dumps. Now we know somewhere every man has great characteristics to be a good friend like MC Sher was to Murad but because we take these accounts for granted; we only realise it when we see such characters on-screen and relate to them thoroughly. (6) Arjun Mathur As Karan Mehra In 'Made In Heaven' © Amazon Prime Arjun's character as Karan was developed keeping all the sensitivities and nuances of being a homosexual in society, in mind. His struggles in the series feel quite real and honest, while he's trying to piece together his past transgressions and his will to sustain through tough situations, much like any gay man was trying, before section 377 came through. His character like all others is also relatable and quite real. Zoya's heroes are not men rescuing women from the clutches of bad men and normalising the standard of machismo but instead her men deal with insecurities and turn to women to take support, when times are rough, much like most of us today. Mostly, she creates this fictional world using her own experiences with the men in her life and creating real-life men who're pretty much everywhere and all around. So, if you think Bollywood has it right, portraying the wrong kind of manliness, maybe Zoya's movies can put a perspective or two in place for you.
  6. We have to admit that we can never get enough of the kick that good ol' action and crime thrillers hold for us. When it comes to films, we honestly have a hard time choosing between those pheromone-inducing racy action movies, and those featuring our preferred clan of superheroes that occasionally grace the silver screens. © Netflix However, ever since we laid our eyes on the trailer of Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam starrer 'Triple Frontier', there is no denying the fact that it has gotten us hooked and left us asking for more. So while we still have to wait a little longer for 'Triple Frontier' to hit our screens, what better way to wait for it, than to get prepped and build it up to the showdown? So here is the plan. Let's check out these action movies in the meantime, before 'Triple Frontier' officially makes its way onto our screens tomorrow. 1. Polar A neo-noir action film, it has been directed by Jonas Åkerlund. The story traces the journey of Duncan Vizla, world's top assassin, also known as The Black Kaiser. All set to reap the benefits of retirement, The Black Kaiser finds himself back in the game much against his will, when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. The new army of killers are younger, faster, and ruthless who will stop at nothing to have him silenced. Mads Mikkelson's stellar performance and the raw edginess of the plot will give a edge-of-the-seat experience. 2. Wonder Woman A wonderfully presented superhero origin story, it charts out Princess Diana's transformation from a naive warrior to an inspiring superhero. The film may seem like an an over the top representation of a story that presents the protagonist as an enigmatic and compelling force. If nothing else, who can fault the charm and insane performance that Gal Gadot managed to pull off with this one. 3. Hold The Dark This American thriller directed by Jeremy Saulnier, follows the story of a writer named Russel Core who is called in to visit an Alaskan village and in search of wolves that killed three children. In a bid to unravel the truth, the wolf expert instead finds himself discovering a harrowing mystery. The intense plot and riveting picturisation will surely keep you on your toes! 4. Transformers Another action movie which needs no introduction because it is pretty much a classic. A 2007 American film series directed by Michael Bay, the movie is all about the adventures of the two intergalactic races of robots, Autobots and Decepticons. They battle for the ultimate power source, All Spark and sets out to enamour the audience with its thrilling and one-of-a-kind action packed journey. 5. Outlaw King 'Outlaw King' happens to be a brilliant tale that traces the journey of the exiled crowned king of Scotland, Robert the Bruce, who leads a band of outlaws to reclaim his throne from the clutches of the English. With Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce, his charisma and persona pervade the entire narrative of the film. Truly a must watch, if you like to explore and are looking to movie beyond the mainstream.
  7. What makes a person successful? Is it luck? Is it beauty? Brains? Or money? The answer is none of these and also all of these. But yes, there is one thing successful people have in common: they are unconventional. They do not particularly conform to social conventions. They do have to face a lot of flak for the same and hardly ever are they recognized in their time (Phoebe Buffay, anyone? :P). Their way of doing things and their thought process is much ahead of their times. The truth about being conventional is that it constricts people to think in a certain way, it makes them remain shackled in a dictated way of living life or having ideas. You are expected to act a certain way, do certain things, behave in a predetermined way. There is never room for imagination. Therefore, when one tries to break free of the societal conventions thrust upon them, they are faced with resistance. Change is never welcome and when someone tries to change a preconceived formula, it is always looked down upon. The same happens with every entity we come across: people, books, movies, TV shows, music and the list goes on. When was the last time you saw a movie and were absolutely blown away by its unusual story and eccentric characters? What is so different about these movies? These movies question the archaic rules, break stereotypes and make a niche arc for themselves. Yes, everyone might not appreciate the brilliance of the story, the avant-garde themes and the work behind these movies but if you give these a chance, they might open up recesses of your mind which have been long shut by the wax of societal convention. Planning to watch an unconventional movie? Here are 7 such movies on Netflix which you can watch: 1. The Lady In The Van (2015): © TriStar Pictures/BBC Films/Sony Pictures Releasing/Netflix Maggie Smith stars in as the eponymous lady, Miss Mary Shepherd, with a secret; a terrible past which has led her to live as a vagabond on the streets. The only solace she has is her Bedford van which she believes is blessed. When writer Alan Bennett, fresh off the success of his latest play, moves into the neighbourhood, little does he know how his life is going to change after getting acquainted with the aforementioned lady. As Alan gets to know more about Miss Shepherd, they form an unusual bond of friendship, propelled by Alan's gesture to accommodate her in his driveway. In due course, Alan begins to perceive the real, sad person behind the eccentric, perennially annoyed, unhygienic Mary. As the movie progresses, we see Alan constantly struggle with the idea of Mary, a fact cleverly portrayed through debates between his two identities: the writer and the real. His conflicted emotions make him miserable and he keeps comparing the two women in his life: the lady in the van and his mother. No one plays eccentric and prudish characters better than Maggie Smith (Remember Professor McGonagall and the Dowager Countess?), and she does it again here. She is adorable in a funny way, bringing alive the pathos of Mary. Alex Jennings is excellent as the harried writer in two minds. Based on a true story from one of Alan Bennet's memoirs, the movie encapsulates the beauty of human relations and emotions, and the power of friendship through its exceptional writing and excellent portrayals. It makes us ask ourselves about the eternal question: why can't we be more compassionate? 2. Band of Robbers (2015): © Tom Sky Entertainment/Gravitas Pictures Just imagine if Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer were still looking for buried treasure! Intriguing, isn't it? Well, Huck and Finn are back with a modern upgrade! Directed by the Nee Brothers, Band of Robbers is a reimagination of the classics: Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Heavily borrowing from the books, it plays high on the nostalgia but not in an overcompensating way and stands on its own. The borrowed incidents do not influence the entirety of the movie, an ode to the genius of the Nee Brothers. Huck (Kyle Gallner) and Tom (Adam Nee) are now adults, but they haven't forgotten their “heroic” ways. When Huck, who has been in jail for some time is released, he is greeted by his best friend, Tom, who is now a down-on-his-luck police officer. Tom is still ambitious about their childhood dream of finding and claiming the Murrell treasure and has hatched a plan to finally lay his hands on it. A reluctant Huck gives in and they are then joined by their awkward and scatterbrained friends, Joe and Ben. As they start their adventure, they run into old acquaintances and with the omnipresent clues and the mysterious hints which are a trademark of the Twain novels, they seem to be a step closer to finding the treasure. Injun Joe makes a comeback along with all our favourite characters from the books. Prepare to relive your childhood! A true masterpiece in parallel thinking. Most definitely recommended! 3. Tramps (2016): © Animal Kingdom/Rooks Nest Entertainment/Netflix When two aspiring crooks cross paths on a job not done well, sparks are bound to fly. Callum Turner stars as smart mouth Danny who gets embroiled in a heist for his brother who has recently been incarcerated. His task is simple: switch a briefcase with another at the subway. All hell breaks loose when he realizes that the briefcase was not given to the intended recipient. Armed with just an address of the person with the briefcase and an unwilling partner-in-crime, quick-witted Ellie (Grace Van Patten), these teens traverse New York City using various modes: the subway, the bus, stolen bicycles, et al and embark on a crazy joyride which both of them had never anticipated. With stunning New York as a backdrop, it is reminiscent of those '70s movies with similar themes of a romance bubbling between two con artists but that is where the similarity ends. What is different is the pure brilliance of the plot, which shifts between romance and pragmatism effortlessly: two strangers find something on their wayward journey which may or may not result in something more concrete. A hauntingly beautiful background score and engaging performances by Grace Van Patten and Callum Turner make this one of the most intriguing movies on the list so far. Sometimes, temporary meetings can change you forever. 4. The Invention of Lying (2009): © Radar Pictures/Universal Pictures/Warner Bros. Pictures/Focus Features Imagine a world where there were no lies and you couldn't lie. Could you imagine? But this is the world which Mark Bellison (Ricky Gervais) lives in. In this alternate reality, you cannot lie and there is no such thing as fiction, everyone speaks the truth; a utopian society which tells the truth without thinking about its ramifications. When things start to go horribly wrong for him at work, where he works as a screenwriter, owing to the fact that his movies are historical 14th-century flops and his personal life goes for a toss, he discovers the art of lying and he can do it quite well. Things start getting better once he starts lying and he soon discovers that lying can be beneficial to others as well! His crowning glory comes in the form of the ultimate lie he cooks up: God! Eventually, he faces a moral quandary and what he does sets the tone for the rest of the movie. The movie is funny, though it has its share of flaws, is a satire on faith, religion and the entire concept of truth. Is honesty always the best policy? Ricky Gervais is funny as always, more so as the unfortunate Mark, and so is Jennifer Garner as the snooty socialite, Anna. Unconventional and thought-provoking, its humour is its best-selling point. 5. Paddleton (2019): © Duplass Brothers Productions/Netflix Directed by Alex Lehman, the comedy-drama movie revolves around two middle-aged neighbours, Michael (Mark Duplass) and Andy (Ray Romano), who are best friends: eating pizza, watching dubbed Kung-Fu movies and playing “Paddleton” (a mix of paddleball and badminton) and living their best lives. Tragedy strikes when Michael gets diagnosed with terminal cancer which sets both of them to take a hard look at their lives, especially Andy. When Michael asks Andy to assist him in ending his life, they set out on a road trip to get the drugs and on the journey discover what they desperately crave. Fringing on the indie-film boundary, with mumblecore elements, this movie is one of those exceptional ones which truly open your eyes to the truth of being human. Without being too preachy, the movie stresses on our perceptions of friendship and life and how far will one go to save someone they care about. Andy and Michael have the perfect bromance, platonic with just the right amount of “sweet old couple fighting” but that doesn't change the fact that they absolutely love each other. The dialogue is efficient and economical, there are no big speeches on friendship or mushy declarations of love, just two people who care about each other and have finally realized their own mortality. The humour is top-notch, and its self-deprecating tone is one of its greatest triumphs. Mark Duplass and Ray Romano portray their characters with such nuance that watching them will make you realize the sadness we all carry with ourselves and the armour we put up for the world so that no one sees the vulnerability behind the façade. Ray Romano is best remembered as Raymond from “Everybody Loves Raymond” and so it is nearly inconceivable to imagine him in some other role. Seeing him portray an intense character so well blew my mind and will do the same for you! 6. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018): © Blueprint Pictures/Netflix Adapted from the novel of the same name, it focuses on a successful London writer, Juliet Ashton, who gets intrigued when a letter arrives from Guernsey along with the news of a much-beloved childhood book which happens to be in the possession of the sender, Dawsey Adams. Dawsey and Juliet start a correspondence via letters as the story behind the book club, whimsically founded by Dawsey's friend, Elizabeth McKenna, and four others in an attempt to resist arrest while the island was under the German occupation, piques Juliet's interest. Juliet then visits Guernsey to meet the people behind the odd named literary society and is fascinated by the colourful characters and their unique tale of how they survived during the occupation. Juliet plans to write a book about the society, but things start to unravel as she expresses her desire to the people of Guernsey, guided by the conspicuous absence of Elizabeth which seems like a mystery. Lily James' intricate portrayal of the determined and soft-spoken author, Juliet, who has a sad past is memorable as it is heartwarming. Michiel Huisman as Dawsey Adams seems to be tailor made for the role of the homegrown, down-to-earth farmer from Guernsey. All the members of the literary society are charming people in their quirky ways, especially Isola. A beautiful and delightful story of the power of human imagination. Truly marvellous! 7. I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016): © Paris Film/Zed Filmworks/Netflix “Even the prettiest things come to rot.” A hauntingly terrifying story told through dreamy cinematography, top-notch camerawork and eloquent dialogue delivery. This new genre of horror is better than you ever expected. We go back to gothic suspense roots as newly appointed nurse, Lily (Ruth Wilson), the self-proclaimed pretty thing, takes us through the once opulent house, one step at a time, where she is supposed to take care of the once famous and now demented, reclusive author Iris Blum (Paula Prentiss) who refers to Lily as Polly. Strangely, Polly (Lucy Boynton) happens to be the name of the protagonist of Iris' best-selling novel, The Lady in the Walls. As Lily recounts her story, she tells us how she chanced upon the novel and how things started to unravel thereafter. As the movie progresses, we keep shifting from present to the past and meet the real Polly on whom apparently Iris based her book. Things take a drastic turn when Lily starts to realize that the reality of the book might be something grotesque. Not your typical brand of horror, it isn't about a fearless protagonist or ghosts which trouble you but provides a compelling narrative of the three main characters, all thanks to the genius of Osgood Perkins (the director). It surely transports you a horror world akin to the ones created by directors like Stanley Kubrick and Roman Polanski. It isn't a run-of-the-mill horror, but what makes it so unconventional is that you are left to your own devices to judge the veracity of the narration, the elusiveness of the story makes it more compelling. Appearances are deceptive: what you find pretty might not always be pretty. So, which one are you planning to watch?
  8. The first Friday of March is witnessing a clash of two very interesting movies at the box office. On one hand is the romantic comedy 'Luka Chuppi' starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, on another hand is the dacoit drama 'Sonchiriya' starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranvir Shorey, Bhumi Pednekar and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles. The movie is helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, who was also the brain behind 'Udta Punjab', and follows the life and the underbelly of the Chambal Valley. The audience reactions are out and people are mostly raving about the power-packed performances of the stellar cast. #Sonchiriya ðððð Terrific! The favorite genre of Bollywood is back and it will surely gain more fans . The movie is great in every aspect the direction , cinemetography, sound and editing are top notch . The writing is on point . — BOLLYWOODMagnum (@BollywoodMagnum) March 1, 2019 Sonchiriya is a lit movie ð¥ð¥.but only for the selective audience. Sushant sirð is phenomenal in his role and bhumi mamð had also done a great jobð..lack of music connection.overall a complete package of thrill and entertainment ðð¥ @itsSSR @bhumipednekar #SonchiriyaReview — Navnit Sharma (@navi_sharma77) March 1, 2019 While it is not a popcorn entertainer, the movie surely promises a gripping watch for serious cinema goers, who are looking for a strong script with a great screenplay. what an amazing film..thank you @MumbaiFilmFest !!! #sonchiriya @RanvirShorey @BajpayeeManoj @itsSSR @RonnieScrewvala @bhumipednekar @RSVPMovies kudos! best line "the bullets made by the government will not kill me, its the promises that will!" https://t.co/N6HqHYIApY — Sapna Moti Bhavnani (@sapnabhavnani) February 27, 2019 #Sonchiriya is a rollicking affair; a social drama that exudes the frantic pace of an action film, peppered with marvellous dark humour. Abhishek Chaubey and writer Sudip Sharma are a force to reckon with. Politics, caste, feminism with a Spaghetti Western backdrop. What a blast! pic.twitter.com/N7P5P3N1Ib — Aniruddha Guha (@AniGuha) February 27, 2019 Mind blown. So sensitive, so brutal, such a finely observed critique of patriarchy and our caste system — #Sonchiriya is not to be missed. Kudos Abhishek Chaubey, Sudip Sharma, @RonnieScrewvala + the entire team! Thank you @MumbaiFilmFest @RSVPMovies #SonchiriyaAtMAMI — Sudhanshu Saria (@iamsuds) February 27, 2019 Some are even calling it as one of the finest bandit movies Indian cinema has experienced. Almost exactly 25 years since Bandit Queen, arguably 'faadu-est' Indian film (ever)—a fine, fab tribute to Chambal, and the Curry Western (with/without the curry, or Western). Piece on the super-pic #SONCHIRIYA https://t.co/L6MyCjiCyi — Mayank Shekhar (@mayankw14) February 28, 2019 It requires immense guts and vision to do a film like #Sonchiriya. Well done on your choice and performance, @bhumipednekar! May your tribe increase! — TANUJ GARG (@tanuj_garg) February 27, 2019 In case you were confused about booking the tickets for this one, you should put your doubts to rest and make plans right away.

  10. Although The Great Khali's World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) days expired way back in 2015, the fact that he represented India on such a grand stage for so long and even won the World Heavyweight Championship by eliminating stars like Batista and Kane in 2007, only adds to his success as an in-ring performer. A byproduct of Khali's immense success with WWE was the number of movie deals the 'Punjabi Playboy' got to sign. We are talking about big-budget movies working alongside renowned actors like Steve Carell and Adam Sandler. What is even more amazing and praiseworthy is that fact that Khali even ended up doing a French film (which might even be the best one he has done till date). Here are four international movies The Great Khali was a part of: 1. Get Smart Let's begin with the movie that gave Khali the most amount of on-screen time. In one of the greatest action-comedy films of all time, Khali played the role of Dalip, the Indian bodyguard of villain Seigfried (Terence Stamp), who is going through a tough divorce. One of the biggest scenes of the movie involves Khali skydiving off a plane in pursuit of protagonist Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) and Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). 2. Longest Yard In this mega-starrer, Khali plays the role of a convict named Turley spending his sentence in a maximum security prison. Motivated and coached by Paul 'Wrecking' Crewe (Adam Sandler), Turley decides to play from Crewe's team in an American football match against the prison guards. Khali's funniest moment comes when Crewe admits to sabotaging the prisoners' game against the guards and Turley says: “I'm glad you're back, now I don't have to stab you.” Yikes! 3. MacGruber In the quest of saving America from a crazy terrorist who's somehow got his hands on a nuclear warhead, ex-special force MacGruber (Will Forte) forms an unusual team of extraordinary men. Teaming up with the likes of Kane, Big Show and Mark Henry, The Great Khali plays the role of a car mechanic who is one of the members of Macgruber's special team. 4. Sur La Piste Du Marsupilami Based on the 1952 comic book character called Marsupilami, a mythical animal, the 2012 French film revolves around reporter Dan Geraldo (Alain Chabat) and his adventure to discover the creature. Amidst his adventure, Geraldo, along with fellow traveller Pablito Camaron (Jamel Debbouze), gets into some trouble and is put in a small jail with Bolo (Khali) who gives them the beating of their life. What's the best part about the giant's character? His voice!

  13. They say falling in love with someone, at first sight, is something you only watch in the movies. It never comes to life anymore. I agree it's hard to compare falling in love with someone at first sight to knowing someone for years and then falling in love with them. But love, at first sight, does exist and in reality, it's one of the strongest bonds that barely deters in spirit. (c)Instagram Today's generation is a little sticky with this phenomena though. That's also because a lot of people don't know that the real concept of 'love at first sight' came from our forefathers and ancestors when love was a lot simpler and malleable. Relationships survived without the advent of the 'next right swipe'. (c)Instagram But nowadays, men and women alike, need the clarity to adopt love as a feature in their lives, to pursue one another to look for happiness. No one trusts love anymore, everyone is either rooting for 'the perfect match, after 20 swipes' or looking for 'the one'. Gone are the days, when you'd just meet someone and you know, they're the one for you. Well, not entirely gone though. Meet Ankita and Amish, the only real-time couple we've come across in a long time who've survived beautifully for six years after they fell in love with each other at first sight! I fell in love with her in one night flat- Amish (c)Instagram And that was that we're guessing. All it took for Amish was to spend a few hours with Ankita and be absolutely head over heels in love with her. And she with him. Amish and Ankita first met at a karaoke bar, where Ankita, much to her dislike, was setting her friend up with Amish, but little did she know, Amish already had his eyes set upon her and the rest of the night was just the two of them getting along like a house on fire. Although after her friend's insistence, Ankita decided to approach Amish to pursue him for her friend, instead she found what she was looking for, all along, right at that moment, right there and then. (c)Instagram We found love in a hopeless place, where the world was a drunken mess and looking to have a good time. It was almost like a weekly Wednesday meet up for subscribers of hedonism where winning mating game and detachment ruled the roost. And there he stood with his thick black glasses bobbing his head to a song. That night I realised I had found my co-conspirator, the worshipper of mush and cheese, the love for greasy food, wanderlust, believing the world was made of marsh-mellows and buttercream. He was my kind of boy - Ankita (c)Instagram That's how love swings, or is supposed to, isn't it? It doesn't wait, it never recedes at the perfect moment and it lets you know you can't control it. Falling in love, at first sight, is actually a long lost scientific battle. There is a science involved in every realm of it and while the chemicals balance in your brain, you keep falling deeper in that feeling. It's true, while you are falling in love, your brain is creating dopamine and serotonin, and the composition is a real rush. (c)Instagram But inadequately so, most young people today have learnt to consciously alter that immediate response by judging their own reaction while rejecting the other person's. It tough to let your feelings flow, when you're constantly rushed by numerous 'options' at hand, not giving yourself a chance to experience the purity of that rush. There's Incredible Strength In Just Getting To Know Someone From Scratch We sat across the table, ordered for wontons and beers. Dipped one in the hot sauce, took a bite like it meant life, made disgusting sounds, panted with a chilly breath and washed it down with pints of beers. It was almost like Wonton chomp, chilly pant, glug, hysterical laughter, awkward silence, butterflies and then repeat. I even chose a yellow muffler over a purple jacket for my date, not the quintessential LBD. I was my messy best but Amish always felt like home to me, so it was very real there was no need to pretend - Ankita (c)Instagram Their first date was somewhat like that. Their dynamic was built on the nuance of barely knowing each other. They'd just happen to meet at a bar and they started talking, so there was a lot to find out. But that's the best part about falling in love with someone instantaneously, isn't it? You want to know every little aspect of their existence till it fills your subconscious to the brim. Post their little encounter at the bar, the two spent a good amount of time together to find out who they really were and what made them fall in love, in the first place. (c)Instagram She's incredible. The human being she is, the power to give, the power to love beyond self-love, the power to stand against the tide or a cyclone or both, the warrior she is- Wonder Woman's got nothing on her, her innocence, her morality, her feminism. I am proud that a being like this exists in this humanity-is-secondary world - Amish Amish and Ankita finally tied the knot 3 years ago and because both met as total strangers in love, they started imbibing the best qualities from one another, just to be comfortable around each other. The likes of respect, equality, understanding, faith and trust was an autopilot derivative of that. Amish graceful took her last name after marriage because he realised love shouldn't succumb to your identity as unequal's, rather it should stand out in true equality and unity of one's mind, body and soul. (c)Instagram Amish believes in equality, I dig that about him. It's a simple virtue but easier said than done. When we got married he decided to take my sir name and said- 'why should you have all the fun and celebrate me, I want to celebrate you too - Ankita Relationships based on 'Love at first sight' are long-lasting. That's because they create an illusion of positivity in your head about accepting each other, through a myriad of reasons and making it works against all odds while starting from scratch. And every time Amish and Ankita talk about how they first met and fell in love instantly, their connection certainly deepens in time. (c)Instagram So, if you're looking for a love that's fulfilling and deep, keep your mind and soul open, you never know who you might meet and spend the rest of your life with, at that very moment! I have learnt to be a more aware and honest human being, who can accept his weaknesses, weigh his insecurities and be proud of his strengths. But the most important thing it has taught me that the fairy-tale ideal kinda love does exist but for it to prosper, you work on it selflessly every day - Amish
  14. To say that Abhishek Bachchan isn't an actor of potent calibre, would be one of the most misjudged claims one could make. One that is expected to come from someone who isn't aware of the art and its nuances, or whose idea of “success” correlates to the amount of success AB Jr. has achieved, as compared to his father and Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. That's one of the biggest follies of our generation. We are shouldering society's ruling belief that personal success must be measured in comparison to someone else's achievements and successes. This idea is flawed on so many levels, but mostly because it completely disregards the efforts and personal milestones a person clinches throughout his journey. © Colour Yellow Productions Abhishek Bachchan happens to be a victim of this stunted worldview most Indians suffer from. Because if you ask me, Abhishek brings more to his characters than the sketches put down on paper. Many of Abhishek's performances are prime examples of how one can bring their personal experiences to add depth and flavour to a character. There is a hint of gravitas in the characters that Abhishek brings to life. He is one of the few actors in the industry who you can trust to bring their personality into a character, and still make it work. His comic timing and wit need no introduction, and regardless of what we think of 'Happy New Year' as a film, there is no denying that Nandi Bhide's character was a complete star in the film and surely added to its success. © Red Chillies Entertainment More recently, Abhishek's portrayal of Robbie in 'Manmarziyan' as the soft-spoken family guy, only went on to show how he has evolved as a performer, yet the film also fails to completely utilise his potential as an actor in the film. Which brings us to 5 of Abhishek's most standout performances of all time that makes us wish we could have more directors bring out the best of AB Jr. once more in front of the camera: 1. Yuva This film earned Abhishek his first Filmfare Award and was undoubtedly Abhishek's most memorable performance. The angst and fierce drive inherent in the character of Lallan Singh made for a treat to behold and kept us glued to our screens. © Madras Talkies 2. Bunty Aur Babli Abhishek made his mark in the industry with his performance in this film, and even caught people's attention for his striking comic timing in the film. The crime-comedy brought out a different side to the actor that no one could disregard. 3. Sarkar Who can forget Abhishek as Shankar Nagre, a role that earned Abhishek another Filmfare Award for the best supporting role? His manipulative moves and honest rendition of the character put him in the limelight once more. © Madras Talkies 4. Guru This film and Abhishek's performance in the film needs no introduction. Inspired by Dhirubhai Ambani's life, the film earned him a lot of well-deserved critical acclaim. 5. Dhoom Trilogy Abhishek as ACP Jai Dixit has added a lot to the series, no matter how quick people are to set aside his role in the films. No Dhoom film would be as good without ACP Dixit in it.
  15. Hollywood is going through its resurgent years. Films are sparking new narratives as more and more agenda-driven stories are being created. The scene is not 'all white' and 'all male' anymore. Intense dramas are giving way to musicals, and biopics have recently become a top-notch genre. via GIPHY In a race for better content, film-makers are no more willing to play on one particular genre that used to drive movie buffs crazy. The hip-hop inspired stories which used to be a 'cool thing' in the 80s and 90s have taken a back seat. Over the last 30 years, some of the greatest hip-hop films have been made ultimately turning a whole generation into hip hop film lovers. Here is a quick look at the greatest hip-hop films of all time: 1. Wild Style Released in 1982, Charlie Ahearn's 'Wild Style,' is touted to be the first movie to bring the underground hip-hop revolution to a broader audience. Whether you want to watch the legendary subway artist Lee Quiñones starring as a graffiti writer or catch Grandmaster Flash and Fab Five Freddy in action, 'Wild Style' has turned out to be a cult classic. This film documents the origin of street movement which went on to conquer the mainstream pop culture and this beautifully intersperses with Graffiti Artist, Zoro's (played by Lee Quiñones) struggle with his family's discontent and his encounter with journalist Virginia (played by Patti Astor). Though the plot may not be able to discover cinematic rhythm, it surely maintains the vitality of the characters. “I know all the colours by heart'' seems to remain with us!!! 2. Breakin' Directed by Joel Silberg, 'Breakin' stars Lucinda Dickey (Kelly), a classically trained jazz dancer who forms a team with Ozone (played by Adolfo Quinones) and Turbo (played by Michael Chambers), who give exhaustingly good breakdance performances in the film. While Kelly polishes her technique, her partners turn up the volume on their ghetto blasters. via GIPHY Interesting to note, 'Breakin'' earned $57 million worldwide making it the most financially successful movie from the stable of Canon Films. If you manage to overlook the amateurish script, it is a great movie which introduced the hip-hop culture to the world. 3. The Last Dragon 'The Last Dragon,' a Kung Fu drama is aimed towards the hip hop generation. Produced by Motown Founder Berry Gordy, this film traces the journey of a black martial arts student Leroy Green (Taimak) who falls in love with a video jockey Laura Charles (Vanity). Gangsters intrude both their lives when crook Sho'nuff (Julius J. Carry III) tries to back his talentless protégé into rock stardom. via GIPHY Michael Schultz, the director of 'Cooley High' and 'Car Wash', has attempted to load the film with contemporary singing, dancing, rapping, video-art, and Kung Fu. The plot seamlessly blended Martial Arts and Breakdancing which influenced the modern hip-hop culture. 4. Krush Groove Written by Ralph Farquhar, 'Krush Groove' is a Def Jam Biopic which turned out to be a hip-hop classic forever. Hip Hop Bigwig, Russell Simmons along with film producer Michael Schultz displayed the hip-hop glory days in the Warner Bros Distributed venture. The Fat Boys, Run-D.M.C., Kurtis Blow, the Beastie Boys, and Sheila E. all starred as themselves in the film. via GIPHY 'Krush Groove' revolves around the lives of black teenagers who went on to sign recording contracts thus drawing a huge black audience, eventually leading to clashes between black and white audiences. The quasi-musical film gave hit songs like “All you can eat.'' 5. Fear of Black Hat A homage to 'This is Spinal Tap', 'Fear of a Black Hat' is a 1994 mockumentary about a gangsta-rap group called N.W.H. (Niggaz with Hats). The film is narrated from the perspective of a Sociologist, Nina Blackburn (Kasi Lemmons) who selects N.H.W as the subject of her thesis, only to familiarize with their beliefs later. This is a satirical yet refreshing film crammed with funny and weird moments quite like the uneasy meeting of the rappers who all bear “ice” in their names. 6. 8 Mile Directed by Curtis Hanson, '8 Mile' is an odd combination of 'Flashdance' and Purple Rain'. via GIPHY It stars controversial artist Eminem as Rabbit who is a poor white kid from Detroit struggling to rise above poverty. He protects his mom from an abusive live-in partner, looks out for his sister, wins public rap battles and eventually bags a record deal that transforms his life. Co-stars Kim Basinger and Brittany Murphy delivered equally power-packed performances as the protagonist of the film. 'Lose Yourself' earned Eminem his first Oscar in the Best Original Song category. An obscenity-strewn 'Rocky' for the gangsta rap generation, '8 Mile' does a convincing job to enhance the hip-hop culture. 7. Tupac Resurrection 'Tupac Resurrection' explores the spectacularly complicated life of Tupac Shakur, one of the highest selling hip-hop artists of all time. Directed by Lauren Lazin with Shakur's mother, Afeni Shakur as the Executive Producer, this film bears an autobiographical feel as Tupac does all the talking. Though much of his youth was spent in poverty, he released his first rapper album at the age of 20. via GIPHY Echoing the ideology of 'Black Panther', Shakur encouraged the downtrodden to take up arms. On September 6, 1996, he was shot four times and his murder still remains unsolved. Prolific still, Shakur has released more albums dead than alive. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. 8. Hustle & Flow Writer-Director Craig Brewer transcends the crime genre and transforms 'Hustle & Flow' into an emotionally powerful drama. In this film, Terrence Howard plays a Memphis Pimp and drug dealer (Djay) who aspires to make something of him. The plot involves Djay's attempts to meet his business duties while recording his own demo track. via GIPHY The film is not just a portrayal of Djay's rags-to-riches story, it emphasizes his transformation when he finds something he loves doing and gets better at it. Terrence Howard modulates Djay with great love and consideration for the character and it earned him an Academy Award Nomination in the Best Actor Category. 9. Step Up Quite ahead of its time, 'Step Up' introduced Channing Tatum to us. via GIPHY It is on the sets of 'Step Up' that Jenna Dewan (Nora), who plays dance student in the film, met her now ex-husband, Channing Tatum (Tyler) who essays the role of a rebel from the other side of Baltimore's tracks. He appears as an angry outsider until his skills as a street dancer draws Nora's attention. via GIPHY As love blooms between them, Tyler realizes he has the single performance to step up to a life way larger than he has lived. Julia Styles, the writer dishes out a plot which was bound to win over dance-obsessed tween and teen girls. If you haven't watched this film, you have not watched anything. 10. Beyond The Lights Written and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, this American Romantic Drama is the classic boy-meets-girl story. Apart from rapper Machine Gun Kelly, 'Beyond The Lights' stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw who plays R&B Singer and attempts suicide repulsed by the trappings of fame. via GIPHY It also stars Nate Parker, Minnie Driver, and Danny Glover. Both in outrageous LA costumes or sophisticated British attires, Gugu Mbatha-Raw appears equally ravishing. The song 'Grateful' from the film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2015. Honourable Mentions: Beat Street, Brown Sugar, Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, Style Wars, Boyz n the Hood, Menace II Society, CB4, Dope, Do the Right Thing, Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme, Get Rich or Die Tryin', Juice
  16. Video game revenue has been on the rise for the past few years and it reached a new peak of $43.8 billion. That's 18% up from previous year and has surpassed the projected total global box office number for movies. The numbers were released by the reliable NDP group and Entertainment Software Association. In fact, we predicted this over two years ago as games like GTA V, Fortnite, Fifa 19, PUBG and others are literally taking over the world. The increase in Video Games revenue could be attributed to a variety of factors. Free-to-play games such as Fortnite, PUBG Mobile and even AAA games have implemented micro-transactions in their games that may have resulted in an 18% revenue increase. In fact, Fortnite made almost $3 billion in profit last year. The same could be said about PUBG as the game also managed to rake in a $1 billion in revenue in 2018. Last year, it was projected that global box office revenue from around the world would hit $41.7 billion, according to comScore data. In fact, Video game revenues also surpass streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime where it is estimated to rake in $28.8 billion. Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix said in a shareholder letter “We compete with (and lose to) Fortnite more than HBO,” the company's shareholder letter stated. “When YouTube went down globally for a few minutes in October, our viewing and signups spiked for that time…There are thousands of competitors in this highly fragmented market vying to entertain consumers and low barriers to entry for those with great experiences.” According to te NPD group analyst Mat Piscatella, revenue in video games comes from a variety of sources i.e. hardware sales, micro-transactions, digital and physical game sales and mobile gaming. With keeping trends in mind, the video game revenue will steadily increase in 2019 and 2020 thanks to new consoles launching soon and blockbuster games like Anthem, The Division 2, and Death Stranding are on the horizon.

  17. Now that 4K gaming is widely available thanks to Nvidia's RTX graphic cards, the Xbox One X and Ps4 Pro (upscaled); you need a 4K monitor that compliments your setup. If you are buying a new monitor in 2019, it should be a 4K monitor as some monitors cost as much as its full HD counterparts. 4K monitors can be used not only for gaming but also consume content from services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and others that offer 4K content. 4K monitors are getting as popular as 4K TVs simply because gamers now want an immersive experience. The plus point of having a 4K monitor is that it uses less space, has better refresh rates, better response time and can now be purchased for cheaper. Here are some of the best 4K monitors you can buy in India right now: 1. BenQ EL2870U 28-inch UHD 4K HDR (Rs 32,899) © BenQ BenQ is known for making some of the best gaming monitors and the same can be said for their 4K variants. This particular model has a response time of 1ms, supports HDR content and has a resolution of 3840x2160. It has support for AMD FreeSync Technology which basically aides in better frame rates and prevents screen tearing. It's one of the more expensive monitors from our list but it's definitely worth the price. 2. Acer Predator XB281HK 28-inch UHD 4K (Rs 45,000) © Acer The Acer Predator XB281HK makes it on our list as it's quite similar to the BenQ monitor above but has a bit more aggressive “gaming” look. It's also compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and has a refresh rate of 60Hz. It has a resolution of 3840x2160 and can also be set up vertically. A G-Sync monitor feature is a must-have tool for anyone who games on PC with an Nvidia Graphic Card. 3. LG 24 inch Gaming 4K UHD Monitor (Rs 22,999) © LG Not all 4K monitors need to cost as much as the ones mentioned above. If you are on a tight budget you can always look at alternatives like the LG Ultra HD 4K monitor. It has an IPS panel and is 4-inches smaller than the Acer and BenQ monitors. It also does not have HDR support which is something you may want to sacrifice considering the price it is being offered for. The response time is also set to 5ms which may not be ideal for gaming but its a perfect deal if you like to watch content. 4. Acer KG281K 28 inch 4K Monitor (Rs 24,299) © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This is by far our favourite gaming monitor that also does not break your bank balance. I personally use this monitor for my gaming needs and has all the bell and whistles you want. It costs a bit more than the LG monitor but it is also bigger in size. It has a response time of 1ms, 60Hz refresh rate and has AMD Free Sync Technology. It is probably the most value for money 4K monitor from our entire list. The only issue with this monitor was to do with the speakers as we found them a bit too soft for our liking. 5. Acer Predator Z35P bmiphz (Rs 80,991) © YouTube This is by far the most expensive monitor on our list because it simply has everything you can imagine. It has a 35-inch Curved 1800R UltraWide Screen with 3440 x 1440 resolution. It has a refresh rate of 100Hz which is quite rare for a 4K panel. It has Nvidia G-Sync support. It's a direct import from the U.S. which is why it costs so much but is currently available to buy on Amazon.in

  20. Patriotism and nationalism are running hot and high in and around multiplexes today, owing to the release of two of this year's most anticipated movies. 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' and 'The Accidental Prime Minister' have hit the cinema screens across the country today, and enthusiastic movie-goers have been queuing up outside cinema halls since early morning. © RSVP Movies Certainly, as per the recent norms, Twitter has been kind enough to bombard other interested film enthusiasts with their personal reviews. We decided to do a round up of the initial Twitter verdict on Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal starrer 'Uri', based on what Twitter users have to say about it. For the uninitiated, 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' is based on the surgical attacks of 2016. The plot sheds light on the numerous terrorist attacks that took place on the Indian side of the Line of Control (LOC), which eventually prompted the government to plan the surgical strikes. © RSVP Movies Vicky plays the role of Major Vihaan Shergill, Paresh Rawal will be seen as National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, while Yami Gautam will portray the role of an intelligence officer. As per the initial reviews surfacing on Twitter, the general verdict is that the movie manages to recreate the incidents leading up to the surgical strikes, while the characters stay true to their character and don't go overboard volleying around their emotional baggage. The audience has appreciated the movie's screenplay, and vouched for its patriotism instilling storytelling and well-executed combat scenes. Some have even hailed the movie as one of the best war-movies since 'Border'! Check out what exactly people have said: So had the chance to see #URITheSurgicalStrike at media screeningâ !

  21. Xiaomi announced two new Mi TV models and a soundbar that has eight drivers which include two 20mm dome tweeters, two 2.5” woofers for the mids and four passive radiators for bass and low-frequency sounds. With the rise of sales of Smart TVs in India (partly thanks to cheaper offerings by Xiaomi), the company has now entered into the home entertainment segment. © Xiaomi The Mi Soundbar is Xiaomi's first home audio device for India and costs only Rs 4,999. The aggressive pricing will definitely turn a few heads as I've been using it for a few days myself. The overall experience is great for casual viewing in your bedroom and gives that extra oomph for action-packed movies. I've been rewatching the Harry Potter series and the soundbar offers detailed sound to fill up my room. It's the perfect accessory for your TV if you are on a budget but don't want to compromise on sound quality. © Xiaomi Setting up the Mi Soundbar is fairly straight forward as you can use various input options such as Bluetooth, Line-in, Optical, Aux and S/PDIF. I prefer to use the traditional RCA option as it gives the best audio output as it is warmer and more lifelike. Bluetooth can also be used if you want a wireless solution however since it's Bluetooth, you will notice a difference in sound quality. That's just the nature of Bluetooth audio technology at the moment. You can use an optical cable or the S/PDIF input; however, I prefer the Line-in option. The Mi Soundbar has a frequency range from 50 Hz – 25000 Hz ( -10 dB) and a nominal impedance of 6 ohms. That's quite impressive for something that costs less than a fine dining meal in New Delhi. Most solid-state amplifiers are designed to work with loudspeaker combinations of anything from 4 ohms to 8 ohms. In terms of design, it follows the unique “Mi Look” which means it has a very minimalistic look but remains stylish at the same time. It has a mesh fabric overlay that gives it the “retro” look which you have already seen on other devices and soundbars before. You can even mount the Soundbar on a wall thanks to the supplied screws in the box making it more of a DIY solution. How Does It Sound? In order to review this product, we watched the Harry Potter series and listened to music on Spotify in order to test the sound quality. Being an audiophile, I often scrutinise audio devices based on bass clarity, mid clarity and goal clarity. Since this is a soundbar, we had to consider the surround simulation as well. © Xiaomi The Mi Soundbar was consistent when it came to watching movie content and offered a balanced sound while using the Line-in input. The result was similar while using an S/PDIF cable. When we switched to Bluetooth, the sound was a little degraded since the audio output was being transmitted wirelessly. AUX cable was good enough only for listening to music as it could not offer the same experience we got from an RCA cable. The mid and low frequencies are pronounced, making movie effects powerful. While watching movies, the surround sound simulation is the most important feature you want to look at. For something that costs Rs 4,999, the Mi Soundbar delivered satisfactory performance and served the purpose. Of course, there are some better ones out there but they also cost a bomb. The Mi Soundbar proves that you can be cost-effective and don't need to spend a lot of money. Remember, the Mi Soundbar is perfect for a small to a mid-sized room and can't deliver a full home theatre experience. What We Didn't Like The Mi Soundbar does not come with a remote and you can only select the source by operating the physical buttons on the loudspeaker. You cannot control the volume of the soundbar via the TV which makes it a bit annoying to get up every single time. You can only control the volume remotely if you are connected via Bluetooth which means you may have to compromise on the sound quality. We would have loved to see some IR/App integration so that we could control the individual volume of the soundbar from the comfort of our bed. The Final Say The Mi Soundbar is probably the most affordable home audio device out there that delivers a great experience on a budget. If you don't want to spend a bomb on an expensive solution for your TV, you need to check out the Mi Soundbar. For Rs 4,999, the Mi Soundbar offers way more than its counterparts. We would have loved to see some sort of remote to control volume; however, it's something we can live with for now.
  22. When it comes to entertainment, the year gone by has, by far, been one of the most memorable years of recent times. 2018 saw the rise of the underdogs, getting their due recognition and appreciation, besides witnessing a fresh outpouring of newer themes and scripts that had us queueing up outside movie halls, with just as much gusto as with exclusive web releases. That said, we must guide your attention to the alternate universe of indie films that saw a significant rise in popularity in 2018 with numerous titles successfully making their way to the screens and our hearts. From Nandita Das' critically acclaimed 'Manto' to Vasan Bala's 'Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota' and Netflix's most memorable 'Lust Stories', there is an endless number of other films that have graced the screens in 2018 and literally blew our minds with their content and talent. This year holds a lot more promise in the indie film genre with themes ranging from action dramas to biopics and much more. Here below we list down 11 indie films that should be on your must-watch list this year: 1.

The film traces the life of struggling street photographer played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who persuades, a reclusive stranger played by Sanya Malhotra, to pose as his fiancée to escape the pressures of marriage from family.
  23. While certain singers and actors need introduction, the uncrowned 'King of Swag' doesn't need one. We don't think there's anyway who doesn't know about Dosanjh or the fact that he rules millions of hearts, because chances are they might be a part of his huge fanbase. On days when he is not fanboying over Gal Gadot or dropping cheesy messages on her timeline, Diljit Dosanjh is busy taking the whole world by a storm with his impeccable vocals and equally impressive acting prowess. As the 'King of Swag' turns 35 today, let's take a look at some of his amazing movies in Bollywood and the Punjab film industry. 1. Soorma 'Soorma' is a sports biopic based on the life of ace hockey player and former captain of the Indian Hockey Team, Sandeep Singh. Sandeep Singh is a hockey legend in his own right and one of the greatest athletes of all time, who made an epic comeback after he was left paralysed in an accident. 2. Sajjan Singh Rangroot Diljit plays Sepoy Sajjan Singh in this Indian war drama film that is based on the encounters of Sikh soldiers in the British Indian Army fighting on the Western Front, during the First World War. 3. Phillauri A young man returns from Canada to marry his girlfriend, but turns out he has to marry a tree first because he is a manglik. Post his marriage to a tree, he begins to get haunted by a spirit of a woman. While Anushka plays the character of the ghost, Diljit plays her love interest Roop Lal 'Phillauri' and the rest of the movie is weaved in flashbacks of their love story. 4. Udta Punjab 'Udta Punjab' is a black comedy crime movie that revolves around a rock star, a migrant labourer, a doctor and a police officer, who find themselves trapped in the vicious circle of drug abuse by the youth in Punjab, and the various conspiracies surrounding it. 5. Ambarsariya Diljit plays Jatt Ambarsariya, who lives a dual life as an insurance agent and a RAW agent, in this Punjabi comedy thriller. He is given a task of protecting the home minister of Punjab and during his mission falls in love with two women, Jasleen Kaur and Kirat. 6. Jatt & Juliet Diljit plays Fateh Singh, an Indian villager who wants to get married to a Canadian woman to get the citizenship of Canada. Though the Jatt and his Juliet fight a lot initially, they soon find themselves falling for each other. 7. Super Singh Forget Deadpool, we guess Super Singh is the only hilarious superhero we all need in our lives. Diljit plays Sajjan Singh, a Punjabi man who lives in Canada with his mother but soon returns to Punjab to save people after he accidentally gains superpowers. 8. Sardaarji Starring Diljit and Neeru Bajwa, 'Sardaar Ji' is one of the first fantasy films to be made in Punjabi cinema. Diljit plays the role of a ghost hunter, who falls in love with the ghost he was supposed to get rid of. 9. Punjab 1984 Another Punjabi period drama, this film is based on the 1984-86 Punjab insurgency and the impact it had on people's lives, particularly a mother-son duo played by Diljit and Kirron Kher. 10. Jatt & Juliet 2 This is a sequel to the hit Punjabi movie, 'Jatt & Juliet' but with a different storyline. Both Diljit and Neeru Bajwa reprise their characters from the prequel. Diljit plays fateh Singh, a constable who in order to get promoted agrees to go to Canada to find and bring back the commissioner's daughter. He is one of the finest singers, whose songs complete every party. He is an equally kickass fashion icon, whose sass and swag knows no bounds. Apart from all this, he is an equally talented actor and time and again he has proved his mettle to the world. In fact, these pictures are proof. Can I just say this man is running a one-man show, giving both actors and singers a run for their money simultaneously, without batting an eyelid?
  24. Amir khan a fantastic classy actor of bollywood. His latest and old blockbuster movies history and names also latest movies trailer of amir khan. Mohammed Aamir Hussain Khan, widely known as Aamir Khan, is an Indian film actor, filmmaker and television talk-show host.

  25. It would not be wrong to say that the saviors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have done an incredible amount of work in the year 2018, thus adding a significant number of new age fans to a saga that has now turned a decade old. via GIPHY Films like 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', 'Black Panther', and 'Deadpool 2' are responsible for grossing almost one-third of the total box office revenue worldwide this year. While these films have turned out to be highly commercial, they have also made the fans go crazy as phase 4, which is also the last phase of the MCU is going to mark its initiation in 2019. Information in bits and pieces is being given to the media so that the storylines could be avoided from getting leaked. Fans are expecting the bigger and larger than life version of their superheroes in the upcoming set of Marvel films. via GIPHY Though we don't really know the certainties of the future team Avengers, we may surely get a major hint in the 2019 release, 'Captain Marvel'. via GIPHY After digging a few sources and a lot of research, we have come up with a high-end scoop about the upcoming Marvel films (releasing in 2019). If you are a die-hard Marvel fan and missed something amidst so many films in production, this post is for you. Read ahead and know about what's coming up from Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future. Let us tell you that there is going to be the latest, more evolved versions of the old superhero characters that will be associated with these films: Captain Marvel With 'Captain Marvel', Academy Award winner Brie Larson is getting ready for the release of the most awaited female superhero film of 2019. via GIPHY By playing the lead in the film, which is also the alter ego of cosmic hero Carol Danvers, Brie Larson is making her debut for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film's powerful trailer which was released in September has already exceeded our expectations. Let us tell you that Captain Marvel has remained an accomplice to the Avengers, the glimpses of which would also be seen in the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame'. The film also stars, Quentin Tarantino's favorite Samuel L. Jackson, actors Annette Bening, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg. Not to be forgotten, 'Enemy at the Gates' star Jude Law is also in the film. via GIPHY The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. From the trailer, one can easily figure out that the film is set in the 90s and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is dealing with amnesia. via GIPHY The protagonist finds it difficult to recall her past and leaves the viewers stunned, amidst an unpredictable dialogue, “I am not what you think I am”. While, Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) background monologue explains much about the film's theme, which definitely includes aliens, one looks forward to the film, especially when Captain Marvel is a female at the center of the narrative. We are getting 'Wonder Woman' vibes though! Avengers: Endgame While 'Avengers: Infinity War' was believed to be the biggest Marvel film ever, the audience gave a mixed reaction to the film. Let us tell you that the biggest Marvel film is yet to come and is already in the making. via GIPHY 'Avengers: Endgame' will conclude the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will be a follow up to 'Avengers: Infinity War' and is also considered to be closely linked. The film will also be giving the final touch to many plots. via GIPHY The team of 'Avengers 4' is working day and night to take the Avengers game to the next level which also means that one would get to see the best from the MCU through this film. via GIPHY The flick will be releasing on May 3, 2019. The principal cinematography for the film started in 2017. The makers of the movie had earlier named it 'Avengers: Infinity War Part II', however, it was later discarded. 'Endgame' is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Spider-Man: Far From Home Though Spider-Man has always remained one of the favorite characters for Marvel fans, the superhero's popularity might see a major rise due to his inclusion in the upcoming Avengers films. via GIPHY It would not be wrong to say that Spider-Man is here to stay and entertain us for a good number of years. For now, Marvel and Sony have teamed up for a sequel to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' which is temporarily being called 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (as per Tom Holland's Instagram post). via GIPHY Let us tell you that the film has been scheduled for the release on July 5, 2019. This would also mark the initiation of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Tom Holland who was also seen in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' would play the protagonist in the sequel, it has been reported that Jake Gyllenhaal might play the villain. via GIPHY However, we are just not sure as to how Peter Parker would make his return after the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The direction of the film will be handled by Jon Watts who also directed 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Dark Phoenix In September this year, 20th Century Fox released the trailer of another 'X-Men' film and named it 'Dark Phoenix'. If we talk about the 2016 film 'X-Men: Apocalypse', it was the young Jean Grey who saved Professor X (James McAvoy) from getting killed at the hands of the Apocalypse, ultimately discovering her superpowers. via GIPHY 'Dark Phoenix' will feature Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as the protagonist and will be a mix of her present and past lives. Though 'Dark Phoenix' is believed to be a forceful attempt to bring twists and turns into the already saturated series, the film seems to be losing its charm even before its release. Reason – The two major characters of the entire 'X-Men' franchise i.e. Logan and Professor X have already died in the 2017 film 'Logan'. 'Dark Phoenix' may only mix things up, as fans have already seen how Jean Grey died years back. via GIPHY Other than Sophie Turner, actors including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult would also be seen, maybe for the very last time if this film has to be the end of the 'X-Men' franchise. 'Dark Phoenix' is directed by Simon Kinberg and will hit the theatres in June 2019. The New Mutants The 'New Mutants' is one film Marvel and 'X-Men' fans are eagerly looking forward to. As the title suggests, the film explores the horror-superhero genre and displays the story of teenage mutants getting a grip of their superpowers, while being captive at a secret facility. via GIPHY The film-makers have finalized a stunning cast for the film including actors Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Alice Braga, Charlie Heaton, and Henry Zaga. Earlier, the film was scheduled for April 2018, however, it has now been pushed to August 2, 2019. As per a few reports, certain scenes of the film are now being reshot to add the pinch of horror to it. In fact, major parts of the film are being shot again taking in view of the horror angle. The rating of the film has not been decided yet. 'The New Mutants' is being directed by Josh Boone. via GIPHY It will be interesting to see these teenage mutants getting to understand their powers. Remember, how it happened for the first time with the likes of Logan, Scott, Storm, and Mystique? via GIPHY Got any interesting scoop about these films? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming Marvel films!
