  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. Ever since the teaser of 'Kalank' was dropped, Varun Dhawan has been in the news for his super intense role as 'Zafar The Bullfighter'. With never-before-seen intensity, Varun's appearance in the trailer gave viewers all the 'Bahubali' feels during the bull-fight sequence, however, there is one more reason why fans have been super curious about Varun since the past few days. When he stepped out in a super classy ivory Manish Malhotra sherwani, all eyes went behind his left ear, because there was a brand new tattoo there. Take a look. © Instagram/Varundvn He got a number tattooed - '24'. Now, we too were perplexed to begin with, about what it means, just like you probably are right now. © Viral Bhayani We eavesdropped on the gossip mills, but to no avail. While some claimed that this is the date on which he'll get married, others quipped that a major movie is about to release on this date. But we know that 'Kalank' is releasing on April 19th, and it just didn't make sense. Plus, there has been no announcement about a wedding, yet. Right, Ms Dalal? © Instagram/Varundvn 24 is not his age as well (he's 31 already). After a lot of thinking, the only conclusion we could draw was that it's his birthday. Varun's birthday is on 24th April. But, isn't is a little, err, random? Well, we tried to find an answer and this is the best we could come up with. © Viral Bhayani` We're not giving up yet and are soon going to solve the mystery. Unless Varun reads this and decides to tell us himself. Are you reading, Varun?
  3. If you happen to have even an iota of interest in Bollywood and the hefty number of slightly maddening, but mostly entertaining and fulfilling movies it churns out year after year, and of course unless you have been living under a rock, chances are that you know about the Khans of Bollywood. Yet, for those of you who wish to pretend you are clueless about what I am saying, there are three dominant Khans in the Hindi film industry - Badshah Khan aka Shah Rukh Khan, Bhai Khan aka Salman Khan, and then there is Mr. Perfectionist aka Aamir Khan. View this post on Instagram Happy Birthday Shah! Health and happiness always! Love. a. @iamsrk A post shared by Aamir Khan (@_aamirkhan) on Nov 1, 2018 at 11:54pm PDT And since you are still here and eager to lend me your attention (I wanted to say eyes, since ears clearly don't agree with this medium, but that wasn't quite fitting in), I will also tell you a little bit about myself. I am pretty much like any other 26-year-old millennial with an opinion (about everything or nothing) you may have encountered in your life. The only difference is, I have a platform to voice that opinion and share it with all you valuable readers who spare the time and stop by to give a fu*k about what the likes of us have to say. All that said and done, let us move on to the very thing you have come here to discover. However, before you read ahead, let me put out a disclaimer and state that you may or may not agree with what I have to say, and also that by no means do I hope to suggest that this isn't something you may have already read/known before. But I want to put it out there, and so I will. Imli and me pic.twitter.com/1mMYsDKW5A — Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) March 5, 2019 Now, many of you reading this may be SRK and Sallu Bhai fans, and sure both these actors have a lot going for them in terms of their personal histories in Bollywood and their professional careers, but this isn't about them. It is true that all three of them are actors of great calibre, but Aamir Khan is more than just his acting skills in front of the camera. Aamir Khan is a man of principles, “I am a very idealistic man. I believe that even people who are part of the problem can become part of the solution.” View this post on Instagram Always bringing joy and laughter into our lives, thank you Guruji for your love, warmth and wisdom. What a pleasure it was to spend time with you. ð Love. a. A post shared by Aamir Khan (@_aamirkhan) on Jan 23, 2019 at 2:25am PST He walks the talk and ensures that you pay heed to it. The first thing that comes to mind his 'Satyamev Jayate' and the kind of revolution in initiated on the small screen and amongst the masses. Aamir redefined the kind of content that we were consuming on TV, and opened up avenues and channels for action and discourses around burning issues. Aamir Khan epitomises change and evolution, “I do what I feel is right. I am not scared to walk on the new path and take risk.” Our third poster. Love. a. PS: Our second song comes out today at 6 pm. pic.twitter.com/rOQQEjmD7q — Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) September 8, 2017 Aamir changed the face of modern Hindi cinema with the kind of films he created and became a part of. From 'Lagaan', 'Mangal Pandey', 'Rang De Basanti', 'Fanaa' to 'Taare Zameen Par', '3 Idiots', 'PK', and 'Dangal', he also presented the different sides of a narrative with films like 'Peepli Live', 'Dhobi Ghat' and 'Delhi Belly'. Aamir associates himself with films that are more than mere stories. His films are live representations of our immediate realities, which we may be too arrogant (or ignorant) to admit. Aamir will take that risk, and give us a new reality to explore and experience. View this post on Instagram Diwali pe milenge. Love, a #ThugsOfHindostan | @yrf | @tohthefilm | @amitabhbachchan | @katrinakaif | @fatimasanashaikh A post shared by Aamir Khan (@_aamirkhan) on Oct 19, 2018 at 12:08am PDT Aamir Khan does not let failures bring him down, “I have had unsuccessful films, but I learned a lot from those films. I give my failures as much importance as my success.” Sure, since I am talking about his greatest contributions to films, how can I miss the absolute debacle that was his last box office release, called 'Thugs of Hindostan'. The multi-starrer, big-budget film bombed at the box office and how. Now while there are quite a few reasons to that, the most obvious ones are poor script, unfamiliar genre and definitely below average direction. Yet, Aamir took it all in his stride, and was vocal about the film's shortcoming. He shouldered the film's failure along with the director, and stood with the TOH team through it all and took the hit. That makes him a winner for me! Maddy, my dearest Farhan, many happy returns of the day! Love. Rancho! pic.twitter.com/JxvWR2z5eG — Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) June 1, 2016 There are a lot more reasons why I would always prefer him to the other Khans, but the ruling reason continues to be that he has his heart in the right place. He is fearless and unapologetic about what he does and how he does it. Aamir gets real, important shit done away from the camera and not just in front of it, and most importantly, because he gives a shit about things and walks the talk.
  4. Majority of Indians residing within the geographic coordinates that map out the boundary of the subcontinent, fall under the category of medium to dark wheatish or “olive” skin tone. By most “English” or Western standards, we are the perfect specimen of “brown people”. While such demographic segregation and racism prevalent in the West aren't new to Indians, there is a painful truth to be experienced in the kind of off-handed racism that is practised within India, by Indians and for Indians. © Instagram The Indian subcontinent's collective blind love for the “fairer ones” is something all of us are aware of. For ages now, Indians have drooled over and craved for the lighter shades of skin tone one might find on those shade scales they proudly show off in TV commercials. However, while Indian women have had to suffer from and live under the constant scrutiny of old hags nagging them and lamenting over their “dark skin” colour for ages, they found solace in their grandmother's home remedies, that promised to lighten their skin and make them “look more desirable” as per the requirements of the Indian marriage market. © Instagram Enter commercialisation, and the home remedies were quickly replaced by magical tubes of modernised (albeit chemically formulated) “ubtan” recipes that had made their way to fancy fairness creams and lotions that thrived on women's insecurities and constant pressure to match up to the (unrealistic and cruel) social standards of beauty. The “fairness” furthering business opened a gold mine of money making opportunity that these fairness cream companies exploited for years. But things took a new turn when they made a discovery that would forever change how we saw the fairness cream industry. © Instagram Until the mid-2000s shaving creams and deodorants were the primary grooming products that were sold to men through commercial ads. However, the market study showed there was a solid opportunity of expanding men's grooming range, and soon, fairness products for men were launched. Dheeraj Sinha, chief strategy officer at Leo Burnett told QZ India that, “The men's fairness segment came about because almost one-third of users of women's fairness creams were men.” Even a Vice News report aired on HBO stated that around 60% of women and 10% of men say they use fairness products. © Instagram This led to a boom in the men's skin-care industry and as of 2017 the market grew by 40% and the industry was said to be worth around rupees 5,000 crores. That's not all, a 2015 research study by Nielsen showed that men got into the bandwagon because they believed that a fair complexion could improve their professional prospects. This only confirms that the “idea” of fair as handsome is both personal and is slowly making its way into people's reflection of themselves professionally. Yet, there also exist a lot of aware men who realise that companies are feeding on people's insecurities to cash in on more money and jump the success ladder. Bollywood actors such as Nandita Das, Kangana Ranaut and more recently Abhay Deol, have joined in to call out such companies and their products, and even fellow actors who endorse such brands and their skin whitening products. © Instagram However, since awareness is growing by the day, and more men (and women) continue to realise that they are being fooled by these companies and their products, brands are coming up with more cunning ways of selling their products to consumers. According to Sinha, “My sense is that brands will wake up to the new reality, and you will see propositions reworked around clearer skin (and) glow, rather than pure fairness,” and honestly we have already seen that happening lately. © Instagram It's disheartening to see how society's idea of “normal” and “beautiful” can disrupt people's perception of themselves, wherein they come to think of themselves as inferior to someone, merely because their skin is a shade or two darker than that of others around them. We often hear women say “love and accept yourself for who and how you are” and we hope men also follow this thumb rule and come to take pride in what has been given to them at birth. Trust us, women love that in a man, the ability to be comfortable and confident in their own skin.
  5. This season of 'Koffee With Karan' came with its own set of controversies, fodder for gossip and some fresh scoop on some of our favourite stars who made it to the couch and spilt some beans during the rapid-fire rounds of the show. However, the season is now all set to draw the curtains with a grand finale, which will have Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra brewing some insanely hot coffee for us. The star power next week will go off the charts with Begum of Bollywood #KareenaKapoorKhan and Global Sensation @PriyankaChopra on the Koffee couch. #KoffeeWithKaran #KoffeeFinale pic.twitter.com/pSagOiIcVX — Star World (@StarWorldIndia) February 17, 2019 One of the teasers show us the chemistry between the two hotties, where they speak about how both of them were proposed in Greece by their respective partners and another one shows a sassy PC talking about how she can beat any millennial in the art of how fast can she 'move on' in life. #KareenaKapoorKhan and @PriyankaChopra connect, reminisce and compete on the Koffee couch. #KoffeeWithKaran. #KoffeeFinale pic.twitter.com/T1gPfFczEv — Star World (@StarWorldIndia) February 17, 2019 This is going to be a great finale with some major scoop awaiting us in this episode. The two actresses haven't always been so pally in the past when Bebo commented on PC's accent and PC answered back in her unique style when she graced the couch in one of the previous seasons. The two have worked together in 'Aitraaz' in 2004 and have never really shared the screen after that.

We sure hope so!
  6. At the beginning of this month, Apex Legends was announced, a Battle Royale game that is free-to-play just like PUBG and Fortnite. The game is developed by Respawn and Electronic Arts and is available for download on PS4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC. © KnowTechie Last week, Respawn revealed that the game has hit 25 million total players and had "well over" 2 million concurrent players during the weekend. If we compare, Fortnite took four months to achieve the same numbers and the game currently has 200 million players. Today, the developer has revealed that it has already banned more than 16,000 accounts for cheating. The company also asked users to capture proof of cheaters, such as a screenshot or video clip and send it to them. Even if the proof isn't available, they are urging players to report the cheaters' ID and it shall be taken up for investigation. © Respawn The game currently lacks an in-game reporting tool and the developer has acknowledged that it's a "good idea". Though, there isn't a timeline on when the feature will be rolled out. Given the massive popularity of the game, we expect the reporting system to drop soon since a manual complain filing is bothersome for players as well as the company. A cheater who goes by the name of Mengiez on Twitch was caught cheating in his own broadcast. Viewers noticed that he's asking a wall hack to keep an eye on his opponent's location. Another Twitch streamer going by the name Dharyxd was caught using an aimbot. The videos have since been deleted, but the cheating cost them their accounts. © Respawn The game will have a second patch this week, but we don't know what to expect with the upcoming Apex Legends patch. So far, Respawn has been doing pretty well with their response to player concerns. Many players have been complaining that PUBG has a huge issue with hackers and the developers aren't doing enough to curb it. Using hacks to score points ruins the fun of the game because no player should have an undue advantage. In December, PUBG received a new anti-cheating tool called BattlEye, and it helped in 30,000 cheating accounts.
  7. 'Game of Thrones' is hands down one of the most popular TV series of recent times, and we simply cannot ignore the ardent fan following the show enjoys. From mind-boggling fan theories to crazy fans going out of their way to prove their loyalty, 'Games of Thrones' can boast of it all. © HBO However, much like it is the case with most fandoms, GOT fans have also proven their allegiance to the show time and again. So it is only expected that the makers of 'Game of Thrones' be gracious towards this outpouring of faith and support from fans all around the world. Well, seems like the GOT team has taken note of its fans' undying love for the show, and they decided to share it with the rest of the world. So HBO recently released its own 'Fan Anthem' #ForTheThrone on GOT's official YouTube channel, ahead of the premiere of the last season in April. The video is a visual montage of tributes GOT fans paid to show, and the best part is that it includes the musical tribute of a 18-year-old Kashmiri boy. Sufiyan Malik from Srinagar in Kashmir can be seen in the video, playing the traditional Rabab, which has been taken from his Game of Thrones tribute video called 'The Cure'. As if the haunting and soulful musical tribute itself was not enough, the video play out is absolutely stunning with its picturisation, and choice of location. But what's more, Tyrion and the Night King also make a cameo appearance in the tribute video! You gotta check out the tribute, 'cause Sufiyan Malik did all of us GOT fans out there real proud.
  8. Unless you've been living under a rock, you must have seen or at least heard about every biker's favourite machine, the Royal Enfield. This is no ordinary bike. This sturdy ride is a first choice for many, but more than that it's an emotion of euphoria and zest for life. Now that we have established what a thrill it is to just own a Royal Enfield, imagine the adrenaline rush one would get performing daredevil stunts atop this strong bullet – Exciting isn't it! During the recent Republic Day parade, one brave woman joined the Dare Devil team of the Indian Army who have been performing stunts atop their Royal Enfield Bullet since the last 30 years and holds 24 records. Capt. Shikha Surabhi has never shied away because of fear. She has always owned her fears and braved them with a smile. And this Republic Day, being the only woman daredevil atop the Royal Enfield she made sure that the crowd sat back and took notice of the new face of the fearless women. In an interview with Indiatimes, Capt. Shikha Surabhi revealed her thoughts behind this historic moment and the thrill of riding the Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc. Watch this video and be amazed by her brave spirit.
  9. 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
  10. Every year, monsoon hits Mumbai really hard and so do the truckload of memes that are made on traffic and roads. If you are living in Mumbai, then your friends must have (at some point) tagged you in memes where people are booking boats on Uber and Ola. Don't know about Ola, but Uber has made those memes come true by launching UberBoat. No, it's not what you think it is! Twitter Recently, in partnership with the Maharashtra Maritime Board, Uber launched its new speedboat service in Mumbai, which will connect Gateway of India to Elephanta Islands and Mandwa Jetty that connects Alibaug to Mumbai. Slow claps for all those who thought we were joking. Pixabay The UberBoat services were supposed to start from today i.e. February 1, but due to some technical errors Uber wrote on their official Twitter that their UberBoat pilot will not go online now. Due to unforeseen operational issues, the Uber Boat pilot in Mumbai will not go live tomorrow. Our teams are working hard to ensure that we launch the service on our platform as soon as possible. — Uber India (@Uber_India) January 31, 2019 The boat service will reportedly cover the existing ferry routes around the sea routes of Mumbai. The rides will be available in two variants - UberBOAT and BOAT XL. The first one will be a 6-8 seater speed boat that can be availed at Rs 5,700 and the second one will be a 10-seater boat priced at Rs 9,500.

  11. Xiaomi's new TV segment kicked off with a bang last year and it seems like the company isn't slowing down anytime soon. The Chinese company launched a new iteration of the already popular 4K TV called the “MI LED TV 4X Pro”. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It follows the same philosophy as some of Xiaomi's other products i.e. high end specifications at an affordable price. In fact, the Mi LED TV 4X Pro 55-inch is the only 4k TV you should be investing in 2019 because of all it can offer. It costs only Rs 40,000 and is probably one of the most affordable 4K TVs out there. Here's our review of the Mi LED TV 4X Pro: Design In terms of design, the MI LED TV 4X Pro is thicker, heavier and has a larger footprint than the Mi LED Smart TV 4 which was launched last year. Due to the larger footprint, the TV now houses the 20W stereo speakers that offers better sound output than its predecessor. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The panel itself as a metallic grey finish and has noticeable bezels are in line with other 4K TVs out there. You might miss the bezel-less/frame-less design from the Mi LED Smart TV 4, however we prefer a better sound output than a kickass design. The enhanced sound output improves the viewing experience which was one of the caveats on the previous model. Display And Performance © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The display off the Mi LED TV 4X Pro is 55-inches in size and has a 10-bit panel which supports HDR 10 content. In fact, this may just be the cheapest 4K UHD TV in the market that has support for HDR 10 content. The new panel also has better colour representation and can produce 1,056,964,608 more colours than an 8-bit panel. The panel also as a refresh rate of 60Hz which is great for console gaming on the Xbox One X. However, the TV has a response time of 6.5ms which is not great for online gaming but is more than enough for playing single player titles. HDR 10 content looks absolutely mind-blowing when keeping the price tag in mind. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Viewing angles have also been improved than the previous model as we didn't see any black patches when viewing content from various angles. This was an issue with the Mi TV Smart TV 4 that has now been resolved with the Mi LED TV 4X Pro. Having said that, in order to watch 4K content, you will either need an Apple TV 4K, Chromecast Ultra or a 4k Fire Stick TV. The TV does not have native support for apps like Netflix/Amazon Prime who also happen to be the only 4K content providers in India. The new 20W speakers at the back also improved the sound quality when compared to the previous iteration. The sound is now louder, clearer and refined which was our only complaint from the Mi Smart TV 4. In case you want to have an even better experience, you can always pair it with the Mi Soundbar and you can read our review here. The Xiaomi Mi LED TV 4X Pro is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Amlogic Cortex A53 chipset, which is accompanied by 2GB of RAM and a Mali-450 GPU. There is also 8GB of internal storage for you to store files locally. The remote that comes with the TV is identical to the one you get with the Mi LED 4A Pro. It uses Bluetooth for transmitting signals and doesn't need to be used in the line of sight of the TV. However, we still wished it came with a mute button as it really needs that support in case you get many phone calls or are having a conversation in the same room as the TV. Software © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Xiaomi TV OS or better known as Patchwall is what powers all the smart features in the TV. It works the same way as it does on other Xiaomi TVs but it also has the additional interface of Android TV. The UI itself is very reminiscent of Apple TV with tiles that automatically fetches your favourite TV shows or sporting events from your DTH. It's easier to find content on Xiaomi's PatchWall OS rather than browsing TV channels from the set top box. Having said that, Netflix and Amazon Prime are not available on PatchWall at the moment so you will need a device such as an Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick, Chromecast or a gaming console that has support for native 4K content. There's also Chromecast built-in however it doesn't support Netflix either and Amazon has blocked Prime on any Google product altogether. If you want use a device, we recommend the Apple TV as it has every app you need to be a true cord-cutter. Ports In terms of ports, there are various choices you can use to power your home entertainment system. The Mi LED TV 4X Pro has 2 USB ports, 1 AV Input, 1 S/PDIF Out, 3 HDMI Portsï¼1 contains ARC), ethernet port and also has Wi-Fi support. The ports are on the left side at the back of the panel and can be easily accessed when not using the wall-mount brackets. You can use these ports to power a home theatre system using one of the output ports however we recommend using the S/PDIF Out for the best audio experience. The Final Say To be honest, the Mi LED 4X Pro offers more than it should for Rs 39,999. In fact, I personally own two Samsung 4K TVs that doesn't even have Bluetooth support. The Mi LED 4X Pro is only the 4K you should be buying if you want the best value for your money. It has multiple output ports, offers a 10-bit panel and a great OS experience. Yes, you will need to buy device like an Apple TV to watch 4K TV but even then it turns out to be a cheaper offering. Overall, we can confidently offer a 4X Pro to anyone who is looking to upgrade to a 4K TV and also wants to save money,
  12. Anyone who owns a pair of suede shoes knows the constant struggle of keeping them stain-free. Shoe care for suede is as tricky as it gets. We are constantly worried about getting our beloved shoes wet or stained because cleaning them is a hectic task. Suede cleaning products are readily available in the market but they can be quite expensive and may or may not work. What if we told you that you can make your shoes look fresh AF just by using items in your home? It's the ultimate solution to all your woes! If you do this right and follow all steps, you can ensure that your beautiful suede shoes reach their maximum lifespan potential. Regular cleaning © otterwax You will need: Soft brush or toothbrush Cleaning your shoes every time they get really dirty can prove to a tedious chore. You should clean them as often as you can. If you wear your suede shoes daily, you should clean them at least twice a week. The bristles of a soft toothbrush would be ideal. But if you find that takes too long, you may need to go and purchase a suede shoe brush which isn't that expensive. Scratches © cleaningideas You will need: Eraser After time scratches do appear on suede because of constant use or not enough care. Scratches can make the shoes look old, but don't worry, you can get rid of them fairly easily. Just get an eraser. Yes, the ones that come out of stationery boxes. Gently rub the scratches with an eraser, and watch the scratches disappear. Just like magic. Drink Stains © YouTube You will need: White vinegar, Paper towel After a night out at the bar with your friends you'll definitely spot drink stains on your beloved shoes. Wine or any other type of drink stains can look quite bad, especially if you have a lot of spill. Take the vinegar onto a paper towel and rub the stain lightly. You should start to see the stain coming off. If it's a bad stain, layer a few towels soaked in vinegar on top of it for a few hours and remove after the stain is gone. Oil stains © onecrazyhouse You will need: Cornstarch or baking soda , paper towel or cling film If your shoes are stained with some grease or oil, you can simply use some baking soda. Turns out cornstarch or baking soda can save your shoes from being ruined completely. Sprinkle the cornstarch or baking soda over the oil stains, and it will start to soak up any moisture. Use some cling film or paper towels and place it over the stain covered with the powder. Check the stain after a few hours and it should be gone! See? Adapting these easy methods using ingredients and tools already present in your household can improve your shoe's lifespan and make them look as fresh as the day you bought them!
  13. Dry day. That's gotta be one of the most hated phrases that there is in the English language, isn't it? And imagine the utter pain and disappointment when the said dry days fall on a weekend - the only time we really get to let go and enjoy the free-flowing rounds of tipples, in the company of our friends. Well today happens to be one such fateful day, and unfortunately, not only is it a weekend, but also just January! Did you know that we have 22 more dry days to live through before we can call it a year? © Jhoom Jhoom Production Though as disastrous as this may be for the rest of the country, there might still be some home for those living in and around Delhi-NCR, since these people always manage to whip up a jugaad even when the shutter is down at the liquor stores. *Wink Wink* But for everybody else, tough times lie ahead and we suggest you find and way or two to live through this, before the year ends on a dry spell. Let your booze-wiz do it's thing, as you get to plan ahead and save yourselves from the trauma with the help of this DRY DAY CALENDAR. Here is the DRY DAY CALENDAR for your perusal. We hope you can make the most of it. © MensXP
  14. India has become a hotbed for startups in recent years, with its startup ecosystem growing leaps and bounds with every passing year. Starting our own company seems like the best way to go when we want to give flight to our wildest dreams and passions, and see them take shape in brick and mortar, right before our eyes. Then again, the best thing about starting our own venture is to be our own boss, and take care of business just how we see fit. Of course, it goes without saying that when we finally get our hands dirty on the jo, we realise it's not that easy being your own boss and a leader for others to follow, all at once. (c)MensXP Yet, without straying from the reason why we are here, let us tell you about this new web series on the block, that has filled us with anticipation, and a promise that it will be one hell of a ride for its viewers. With a desi touch, and a theme that is so utterly close to our hearts, 'Joint Venture' is everything you think the name suggests, while still being much more. A lot has been left unsaid in that name, even when all has been laid out for the audience pretty clearly at the very onset. (c)MensXP 'Joint Venture' is as much about starting a new startup “venture”, as it is about two best friends coming together in their mutual love and appreciation for a well made joint. Place these two together, and imagine all the ways how your love for a good joint (and weed) can lead to the establishment of a startup (albeit the many risks that shroud its existence). It's a story about Arijit and Ankit, who love to smoke up and get wasted, but hate that they have to constantly go out of their way to get their hands on all the “good stuff”. What happens next, isn't something that either of them had imagined in their wildest of dreams. I (c)MensXP In a moment of weakness, they decide to start their own venture, which would work to help hundreds of other “potheads” like themselves. Yes, you heard that right. They decide to build an app which would help connect potheads with dealers directly. But as good as it all sounds, we all know that isn't to be, especially in a country like ours. So, Arijit and Ankit's 'Joint Venture' comes under fire and they face a bleak future as the creators of the company and the kind of services they offer. But if you want to know exactly what's in store for the duo and where this journey will head, you have to check out this upcoming MensXP Exclusive series called 'Joint Venture'.
  15. There is a well-known adage common to most Indian households, that is an unrivalled favourite amongst 98% of Indian parents, and it goes something like “hard work is the only key to success”. You might have been personally subjected to some similar version of this, such as, “there is no secret to success (only hard work)” or “there is no shortcut to success (just keep working hard)” yada yada. Do these ring a bell? We are sure it does, because most of us have lived through at least one such lecture which involved the use of one of these adages, either after we messed up an important exam or performance. We all know what a hard time our parents can give us over lost opportunities and our inability to match up to the ideal that is “pados wale Sharmaji ka beta”. Yet, no matter how badly we crib about it amongst ourselves, truth be told, our parents were seldom wrong when they pointed out the obvious (which we were too stubborn to accept) to us, because young Shubham Chaurasia from Bihar, who is the son of a paanwala Shiv Kumar Prasad Chaurasia is a living proof that all of those aforementioned adages might sound frivolous, or parent-talk, but are true indeed. © Hindustan Times-Anil Kumar Ojha Why we are saying so is because when the JEE Main 2019 results was announced recently, Shubham happened to be amongst the handful of people who managed to score 99.56 percentile in the exam! Talking about his son's achievements, Shubham's father told HT that, “My son would not have achieved success without help of former DGP Abhayanand, who runs Magadh Super 30 coaching centre, and its coordinator Pankaj Kumar, who mentored Shubham.” These are people who guided and mentored Shubham, and pumped enough confidence in him to set out on this endeavour. However, it was Shubham's constant efforts and dedication that came to fruition with this stellar score. Even a thrilled Shubham was eager to share his personal life-goals and said that “If I achieve something in life, I will first stop my father from selling betel. I will support education of my sister and I will also work for betterment of society that ensured my education. My all earnings will go for charity, particularly for education of the girls of the families having little resources.” This young boy has seen up close what a life filled with struggle and limited means and opportunities looks like. This gives him the motivation to continuously work hard so that not only can he improve his own personal prospects, but create a better future for his loved ones too. And isn't that something all of us want from life at the end of the day? A better and improved future, not only for ourselves but our dear ones as well. But perhaps the only difference between the ones who come to turn their wish into reality, is their willingness and dedication to work hard and achieve every goal, in order to live that dream outside of their minds. Indeed, it only makes sense then that there would be no shortcut to how we succeed in our endeavours, expect by working hard to seize it by the collar and claim it. No earn it. Some adages, well most of them do hold true, but it is always humbling to get reminded that these saying are not merely words thrown around to make a point or boost our confidence, through living proofs which only helps to firm our belief that “good things come to those who try”.
  16. The year 2018 was all about broken bones, multiple accidents and people getting arrested for taking the viral but risky 'Kiki Challenge'. Yes, the same challenge where people got out of their moving cars to confess their love for a mysterious woman named Kiki. The same challenge that also made Drake's 'In My Feelings' one of the biggest hits of the year. Well, it's 2019 now and with the New Year, there's a new challenge on the block, where the only thing risky is the embarrassment that comes when we look at our old pictures. In case, you weren't active on social media all this while, a new '10 Year Challenge' is now taking the internet by storm, where everyone is sharing their then-and-now pictures i.e. how they looked in 2009 and how they look today in 2019. From Shruti Hassan, Ellen DeGeneres, Nicki Minaj, Sonam Kapoor to commoners; the world has found its latest obsession and we too are hooked to it.

  17. 2018, without a doubt, belonged to Vicky Kaushal. From the best roles to the best media presence which translated to the best fandom one could ask for, the lad had it all. One more thing that he really nailed last year, and clearly wants to excel at this year too, is his style game. He started off the year scoring a lot of brownie points in terms of his outfits and his shoes. He just wore a pair of shoes for the promotion of 'Uri', which are definite collectables. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Vicky is wearing the Yeezy 500 'Salt' sneakers - the super statement shoes with a suede panel sitting on top of a sporty mesh base. Just look at that chunky but edgy pair! © jordanupdate When it comes to collectables, sneakerheads will most definitely look forward to owning Yeezys, as they have pretty much set the tone for the bulky street aesthetic of new age sneakers (them and Balenciagas, of course). © jordanupdate This particular pair stands apart because of its blue tint and the luminous reflective panels. The bold calf suede sneakers feature a round toe, a lace-up front fastening, a rubber sole and an AdiPrene foam midsole. © jordanupdate These Adidas sneakers cost 200 USD, which is pleasantly inexpensive (by celebrity standards, 14K is inexpensive, don't @ us). © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Coming to his overall outfit, we love the turquoise pop on the black-brown base. Living the sartorial dream all right, Vicky!
  18. If you have been on the internet today, then you've surely seen the 'Gully Boy' teaser, or as the makers put it, the 'Gully Boy' trailer announcement, because that's literally the only thing that people have been talking about today. Moreover, it was a rare occasion on Twitter where everyone had just positive things to say about it. Well, we already know that Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are damn good actors and if a tiny one-and-a-half-minute trailer announcement looks so promising, we know for a fact that the movie is going to be incredible as well, and it's good to see that everyone agrees. From unending praises for Ranveer and Alia to people thanking Ranveer for taking on the role so that Farhan Akhtar wasn't the one rapping instead, people can't stop talking about 'Gully Boy'. OK, yes. Into this.https://t.co/wDjW8dra5L — Sahil Rizwan (@SahilRiz) January 4, 2019 It was about time.

  19. There are some things which just about any guy would easily relate to. Here is a list of some of them.
  20. Ranveer Singh has been ruling the roost on social media for a while now ever since he got hitched last month, but his hiatus from the screen also ends now since his movie 'Simmba', which also stars Sara Ali Khan and is helmed by Rohit Shetty, released . The movie hit the theatres yesterday in some parts of the world and today it releases for the audience in India. However, the initial reactions are enough to decide whether you should watch it or not. #OneWordReview…#Simmba: WINNER. Rating: â­ï¸â­ï¸â­ï¸â­ï¸ A solid, well-packaged entertainer with a powerful message... Rohit Shetty gets it right yet again... And so does Ranveer, who is outstanding... Whistles, claps, laughter assured... Expect a STORM at the BO... #SimmbaReview pic.twitter.com/jVCxMjjaF8 — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) December 27, 2018 I wasn't fan of @RanveerOfficial. But now, I am a big fan of you @RanveerOfficial. I repeatedly watched #Singham & this time it will be #Simmba!#SimmbaReview pic.twitter.com/IsvVNqVmXP — Sourabh Das (@sourabhdas90) December 27, 2018 What a full on BOLLYWOOD movie, I wish I was in Mumbai watching this at Chandan. Such a seeti maaro type movie! Love love love it @RanveerOfficial @DharmaMovies @RelianceEnt @iamrohitshetty #Simmba #SimmbaReview ðð»ðð»ðð — Tamanna Wahi (@tamannaW) December 27, 2018 While some fans are loving the masala entertainment, some cannot bear Ranveer in this avatar and believe that Ajay Devgn's cameo was the only good part actually. Problem with #simmba is Ranveer singh He cant act Only good thing in #simmba is Ajay devgn's cameo Theatre fatne wala tha jab Singham ki entry huyi ð¥ð¥ð¥ð¥ Sorry Ranveer singh but this is shitty film Rohit shetty should change his nAme to rohit shitty 1*#SIMMBAReview — Rohan (@ThugRohan) December 27, 2018 People are declaring that it is a copy of the hit Southern movie 'Temper' and the comparisons are harsh. However, in general, it looks like the kind of movie you can watch with your family over the weekend. In all, with heart-pounding BGM & GALACTIC presence of Ajay Devgnð¥ð¥, #Simmba gives you comedy, action, drama in Ranveer+Rohit style, which means PURE Family Entertainmentð Rating: 4/5ðððð (JUST ENJOYY!!) Can't wait for the next one in this 'TRIO'ð #SimmbaReview #Dubai pic.twitter.com/gETA28bTSp — N Jðð¥ (@Nilzrav) December 27, 2018 So here's a good plan to bid adieu to 2018 in 'Simmba' style: if you are a popcorn entertainment fan and Rohit Shetty's movies excite you, and also if you are not tired of watching Ranveer on the screen , then you can give this a shot.
  21. There are literally hundreds of diets and diet books in the world today. Most of these diet books have their roots in the American or the Industrial way of eating, and are heavily influenced by the rising obesity in the West. Every diet promises you something special. While one diet is low-carb, the other is low-fat; one diet book promises you a loss of a kilo a day, while the other teaches you how to eat as per your blood type. There are some which detox you to weight loss and some which tell you to stay hungry for an extended period of time in the name of intermittent fasting. There are literally so many diets out there, that if you follow a diet pattern for a few weeks you will have a new one to follow for the rest of your life. © YouTube But there is an issue here, as there is nothing called dieting. The word dieting has somehow been associated with starvation. Whenever we hear the word 'diet', what a layman interprets it is as another low-calorie diet in which he/she would have to give away all their favourite foods and will be constantly bothered by rising hunger and cravings. But that is far from the truth as you can enjoy all your favourite foods and still reach your goal weight. Of course, some amount of moderation and control will be required in the way you eat, but that, by no way, means starvation and deprivation. Every individual is different in a number of ways. The same program may work for someone and may not have any effect on the other person. However, most diets don't work at all and even if they do, there are certain common reasons which ensure that the results are equal for almost everyone: 1. Complete Elimination Of Junk Food Whenever people go on any type of diet, irrespective of its specificities, they at the same time eliminate most of junk food from their diet. Almost all the diets will tell you to avoid certain foods and these foods are not common to any diet pattern as such, but are common to avoid in general for a better living. These include excess sugar, trans fats, refined carbohydrates, too much preservative and artificial sweeteners etc. If you analyze these foods, you will see that the reasons to avoid these foods have been taught to us since our childhood and there is nothing special you are learning from a diet book. At the same time, most diets promote the addition of healthy foods to your regular eating like different coloured fruits and vegetables, complex carbs, omega-3 rich fats, lean meats etc. But do we really need a diet book to understand this? So in the actual case, most diet books are reminding you of healthy eating and nothing else. © Thinkstock Images 2. Drastic Reduction In Caloric Intake Another common reason why most people lose weight on a diet is that every diet pattern, whether low-fat, low-carb, low-protein, low-calorie or low in everything will somehow reduce your overall calorie intake, or in simple terms, at the end of the day it's just a low-calorie diet. If you closely monitor a particular diet pattern it would amount to lesser number of calories you consume in a day. Some reduce the calories drastically while others reduce it gradually, but somehow, calories are reduced in one way or the other. And the simple equation of less calorie intake vs total calorie expenditure in a day will make you lose weight. Though there are a number of permutations and combinations to this equation, in general, this equation works for most people. 3. Placebo Effect Whenever a person starts following any diet book or a diet by a dietician, they are psychologically geared to lose weight. Their entire effort is directed towards achieving a healthy weight and shedding those unwanted kilos. Say, you are having a fever and the doctor gives you two tablets to consume on every alternate day. One day the doctor gives you the conventional medicine for fever and on the other day, you are prescribed nothing more than a salt or a sugar tablet. Most people will get an equally powerful effect from both, because their attitude is directed towards getting well. Your brain is ultra powerful and has the ability to ensure you achieve what you want. This is exactly the principle used for the placebo effect. After understanding the logic behind why someone will lose weight by following any kind of diet, you need to understand the facts behind healthy and clean eating and the reasons to consume adequate calories, not only to maintain healthy bodily functions but also to reduce cravings and rule out any nutritional deficiencies in the body. Remember, A DIET IS FOR LIFE. Anything for short-term purposes is just an adventure.
  22. If you are here, it means that you occupy either of the two extremes when it comes to Salman Khan. Yes, that's true, there can't be a grey area when it comes to Salman Khan. You either love the man or not. Plain and simple, and we believe many Bhai jaan admirers would agree to this proclamation. Now, coming to the most interesting bit of this story, that is, the massive flop shows Salman Khan has had in his career - yes guys, just admit it that it's a possibility for him, just as much for any other A-lister (or actor for that matter) in Bollywood. In his career spanning across three decades, the actor has had quite a few box office disasters to his credit. We picked out 17 such utterly disastrous movies which crashed at the box office. However, at the very onset, allow us to put a disclaimer across that certain movies mentioned in this list might have been popular amongst movie-goers, but were not commercially successful. Get ready to behold some epic flops featuring Salman Khan, that one can easily use to identify a true-blue, die-hard Bhaijaan fan: 1. Andaz Apna Apna Sure, this one was hilarious, entertaining and went on to become a cult movie, but surprisingly, it simply didn't work at the box office commercially when it was launched in 1994. 2. God Tussi Great Ho This fantasy comedy, that also featured Bachchan Sr, was said to be inspired by the Hollywood movie 'Bruce Almighty'. It performed very poorly at the box office. 3. Tumko Na Bhool Payenge This 2002 action thriller starring Sushmita Sen, Dia Mirza and Inder Kumar, besides Sallu Bhai, gave its audience no thrill whatsoever. 4. Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaye This romantic film became a sad disappointment for Salman Khan fans, who simply couldn't appreciate this movie. 5. Chal Mere Bhai It is a comedy movie directed by David Dhawan, that also stars Sanjay Dutt and Karisma Kapoor. The movie crashed and burned and reports also suggested that the movie was similar to a Pakistani drama called 'Ankahi'. 6. Hello Brother Also starring Arbaaz Khan and Rani Mukerji in lead roles, the film was directed by Salman Khan's brother Sohail Khan, and was apparently inspired by the Malayalam film 'Aayushkalam'. 7. Janam Samjha Karo Starring Salman Khan and Urmila Matondkar in lead roles, with Shakti Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Monica Bedi in supporting roles, this was Andaleb Sultanpuri's directorial debut, and the only film he ever directed. 8. Suryavanshi Alright, please don't get us started on this. It just doesn't deserve the attention. 9. Dil Tera Aashiq Starring Salman and Madhuri Dixit in lead roles, this movie was another commercial disaster of Salman's career. 10. Chandramukhi With Salman Khan and Sridevi coming on screen for the first time, the movie created a lot of buzz, but failed to live up to the expectations. 11. Nishchaiy This 1992 release starring Salman and Karishma Kapoor along with Rajesh Khanna did terribly at the box office. 12. Jaagruti Well, what should we say? 99 per cent of us were unaware that this film even existed! 13. Biwi Ho To Aisi This movie was Salman's acting debut, and his dialogues were dubbed. Even so, the movie didn't prove to be the ideal launch for his career. 14. Veer This multi-starrer action drama was another major disappointment for all Salman Khan fans! 15. Khamoshi Well, regardless of a great story and beautiful songs, this movie crashed commercially at the box office!
  23. Anyone who follows Karan Johar, knows about his famous 'Toodles' series on Instagram. For the uninitiated, it's an impromptu, informal video series where Karan greets his co-judges, Malaika Arora and Kirron Kher, in his trademark sing-song tone. The jabs, taunts, and overall savagery that goes on in these videos are epic, and they are extremely popular on social media for this very reason. Now, everyone knows that except Kirron Kher, no one stands a chance in terms of throwing shade back at Karan, the king of drama himself. However, Ranveer Singh just proved that he too can take on KJo in terms of executing a sassy fashion banter, and how! © Instagram/karanjohar In the latest video, Karan started off with saying 'Good morning' to Sarah Ali Khan, just like he does it to Malaika. After commenting on Sarah's dress and all the colours it contains, he moved to the desi AF Rohit Shetty. After Shetty gave him a solid dose of his 'chana' laden rustic vibe, he moved on to Ranveer, where the real fun started. © Instagram/karanjohar Ranveer entered with a bang, and gave KJo a taste of his own medicine, wearing his 'Tiger Bappi', post which, he made a hilarious AF comment on Karan's pants. Take a look at the video. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 19, 2018 at 3:55am PST Solid, Baba!
  24. NASA is already really cool. I mean, anything related to space will always be cool and I recently discovered something new that makes NASA even cooler. (Sorry for the overuse of the word 'cool') With every International Space Station mission, there's a group photo of the crew but who says they have to be boring? No one wants to see the same posed picture for every mission so the astronauts got a little creative and made the group pictures super cool and only a little cringey. Recreating an iconic movie poster for every mission, seems like the astronauts had a lot of fun adding a little more pop culture to space. Here's 'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy's' almost exact recreation. © NASA The 'Armageddon' poster with just a few more people. © NASA 'Harry Potter', all grown up. © NASA Almost exact, down to the barefeet. © NASA This one's a little awkward, I agree. © YouTube This one is so cheesy, I can't even, © YouTube 'Transformers' looks pretty cool, I have to give it to them. © NASA And last, the beloved TV show 'Firefly'. © NASA
  25. Nargis Fakhri is coming back on the silver screen after a long hiatus and this time it is a horror movie called 'Amavas'. The movie also stars Sachiin Joshi and by the looks of the trailer, it fails to draw any emotion actually. The first thing that will come to your mind after you watch the trailer is that it kind of gives you a hangover of movies like '1920' and '1921', that's because the man behind the camera is Bhushan Patel. As the name suggests, the movie traces the haunting of the 'Amavas ki raat'. The movie also stars Ali Asgar and Mona Singh in pivotal roles and is all set to release on 11th January, 2019.
