  1. Remember the time when aftershaves weren't popular yet, and your barber used to rub your face with a block of 'Fitkari' post a shave? Well, if you're too young and from a metro city, you'd probably not even know what 'Fitkari' or Alum is, and for good reason. Fitkari or Alum (also called potassium alum, potash alum, or potassium aluminium sulfate) is a colourless astringent compound which is a hydrated double sulphate of aluminium and potassium, used in solution in dyeing and tanning. It is easily available in the market, and here are 5 reasons why every man should keep some of it handy in his bathroom cabinet. 1. As An Aftershave Alum can be used after a shave instead of an aftershave lotion. It stops bleeding from minor cuts, and is a great skin healer. © Getty Images 2. As A Natural Toner And Skin Tightener Alum is an amazing toner, and also tightens the skin, giving it a natural glow. Especially for older people who suffer from sensitive skin, this can be a great alternative to regular products. © Instagram/Tigerjackieshroff 3. As A Cure For Mouth Ulcers Alum can be used to cure mouth ulcers and canker sores. All one needs to do is put some alum powder on top of the ulcer/sore, leave it on for about 30-40 seconds, and then wash it off. 4. For Bad Breath Add a pinch of alum powder along with a pinch of rock salt to a glass of warm water and use it as a mouthwash. It acts as a great natural alternative to a mouthwash. © Getty Images 5. To Get Rid Of Dark Circles A little bit of alum powder mixed with water, when applied on dark circles, will help you get rid of them. One product, so many benefits! The more you know, they said.
  2. Anyone who follows Jim Sarbh on social media, knows very well that this man has his very own, special brand of aesthetic that only he can carry off. His outfits are wonderfully weird, and strangely artistic. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it sure does exude confidence, charm, and most importantly, originality. He just proved it once again by attending an award ceremony wearing a very special black suit, that we think is the best red carpet outfit we have seen this year. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Here is why we think that this outfit is special. 1. It takes skill to wear a suit without a tie or a bow-tie, and making it look equally fancy. Jim's black Mandarin collar shirt, buttoned all the way up, is doing that effortlessly. © Viral Bhayani 2. When was the last time you saw someone rock high-waisted pants on the red carpet, that too as a part of a suit? The high waist, along with the belt extension from the jacket, is making it look like a runway-ready piece. © Viral Bhayani 3. Usually, tapered pants are always preferred on a red carpet, because it makes you look sharper. But Jim isn't one to follow the beaten track, of course. He chose a super relaxed pair of pants with a magnificent fall, that makes him look like the fashion royalty. © Viral Bhayani 4. Look at the jacket. The collar lapel is one of the most unusual lapels we have ever seen, and there is a belt extension that goes around in layers, and then falls on the side, making it look like a tie-up belt. Surreal, we say. © Viral Bhayani This is what we call effortlessly innovative styling, while keeping it subtle yet classy.
  3. That time of the year is finally here. The Grammys Red Carpet remains the most anticipated event when it comes to Hollywood fashion. The Grammys have been giving us some of the most iconic fashion moments over the years. This year, they definitely did rise up to the expectations and didn't disappoint us. With all the sizzling controversies involving Ariana Grande, Drake and Cardi B and her pianist stealing the whole show, the 2019 Grammys is already on its way to becoming the most talked about event of the year. When it comes to fashion, the Grammys red carpet serves more looks than the Oscars because of its younger audience and nominees. Being fashion icons and believing in expression through dressing, pop artists tend to experiment with fashion more which equals to more drama on the red carpet. The men of the entertainment business don't shy away from a good head turning look either. Have a look at the 12 quirkiest looks form the Grammys 2019 Red Carpet that turned heads for all the right reasons: 1. Ricky Rebel © Getty Images Let's talk about the one sparking the most talks, shall we? Singer Ricky Rebel walked down the red carpet in a reversible pro-Trump jacket from designer Andre Soriano. The jacket had 'Keep America Great' text which a play on Donald Trump's political slogan on one side and 'Trump 2020' on the other. The outfit has already sparked tons of negative talk about its political statement and about the upcoming US elections next year. 2. Leon Bridges © Getty Images A name in soul music, Leon Bridges sported a custom made 2-piece set by designer Emily Bode. The mustard-coloured corduroy set was covered in little drawings that referenced his home state of Texas and his own music as well. That's one hell of a customization, we say! 3. Post Malone © Getty Images If there's one thing to know about Post Malone, he loves his flashy suits. They are a statement on their own and quirky as hell. This year was no less, as the singer sported a salmon coloured bedazzled suit covered with silver star embellishments, which he topped off with matching pink cowboy boots. This look was put together by costume designer Catherine Hahn, who is one of the artist's favourite designers. Pink is the new black, we see! 4. Kyle Trewartha and Michael Trewartha © Getty Images Like the Fiji water girl at the Oscars, the twins with the silver hair were the Grammy mystery people this year. The twins who are Kyle Trewartha and Michael Trewartha dazzled the red carpet in designer wear which was perfectly layered and stormy weather ready. Yes, they look like The Chainsmokers. No, they're not them. The ice twins definitely do have style, though. 5. Ben Harper © Getty Images If there's one way to ditch the boring black tie and go full ham, Ben Harper should be your guide. Ben Harper did enter full bedazzle mode in a jacket showing off yellow sequined paisley motifs worn with a broad-brim hat. The Nike basketball shoes add an extra edge to the outfit. Very country, yet very sporty. An interesting combination. 6. Young Thug © Getty Images If there's one way to stand out, it has to be to get in with the fluorescent trend. And since bright neon colours always make their mark in the athleisure world, it has to have an active presence on the red carpet too, right? Young Thug stood out from the crowd in a fluorescent lime green hoodie paired with a red cropped leather jacket. The rapper paired it with beige pants and red sneakers for the too-cool-to-care look and we lowkey dig it. 7. Swae Lee © Getty Images Popular singer Swae Lee left his mark on the red carpet with his out of the box fashion choice for this year's Grammys. Seen in a laced see-through shirt paired with studded M.X By Maxine Simoens pants and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Swae stole the show with his peek-a-boo outfit! 8. Jaden Smith © Getty Images Jaden Smith always manages to make heads turn at every red carpet ever. His unapologetic street-inspired style is pretty much what is expected of him. He didn't disappoint this time around with a black hoodie, a multi-coloured graphic jacket and chain detailing all over his upper and lower body. No one can pull off a Jaden Smith exclusive better than Jaden himself! 9. Fantastic Negrito © Getty Images The American singer wore a customized red suit with colourful swatches of fabric making up the pockets. A silver necklace with two fish hung from his neck which he mentions used to be a belt buckle. His whole outfit was apparently inspired by 'upcycling', which is using discarded material to design something that is of a higher quality than the original. 10. Kane Brown © Getty Images Singer Kane Brown doesn't shy away from some print. Seen sporting a Versace black and gold printed shirt with a Versace blazer with the same print on the inner lining as well. Donning daring prints sure seems like a bold fashion statement but Kane wears them like a champion! 11. Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith and Flea © Getty Images Members of the popular rock band 'Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, and Flea turned up at the red carpet and stole a lot of attention for their attire. The perfect mix of eccentric, bold and daring, their outfits were downright rocking. With Anthony's all floral suit, Chad's floral shirt and multi-coloured sneakers to Flea's jacquard pants and hat, they did bring the heat with them. 12. Hector Buitrago and Andrea Echeverri © Getty Images Colombian rock band Aterciopelados members Hector Buitrago and Andrea Echeverri came dressed as the Grammy award itself. Hector's outfit being a spin on an album cover itself with gold star motifs all over was interesting while Andrea's outfit was actually him being a real-life version of a Grammy award complete with a headgear and buttons representing the iconic gramophone shape was an eye-catcher. The award or rather Andrea himself was addressed to their band Aterciopelados indicating that they were expecting a definite win. These few were amongst the many others who made an appearance at the Grammy Awards 2019 and gave fashion a new definition. You have our attention, Hollywood!
  4. Puma has unveiled the new Puma Fi trainers that possibly could be the shoe of your dreams. For starters, they can lace themselves up at a single tap on your smartphone. It has a micro motor that laces itself, which means you don't have to constantly bend down and constantly tie your laces if you have an app that can do it for you in a sec. © PUMA 1) They Come With A Wireless Charger These shoes come with a wireless charger so you don't have to worry about the hassle of wires wrapping around your shoes. Take a look: © PUMA 2) They're Designed To Be Everyday Shoes These trainers are tailored for workouts and everyday use. The trainer also boasts of a series of integrated smart sensors that are able to learn the shape of each user's foot and adapt the fit of the shoe to the individual. © PUMA 3) On-The-Go Adjustments Are Possible The best part about these trainers is that you can make adjustments while you're walking, running etcetera. Basically, motion doesn't interfere in you making your laces tighter. Now, how cool is that? © PUMA © PUMA © PUMA These shoes aren't in the market yet and will take a couple of years to be mass-produced. But do you think you'll get a pair?
  5. Putting on mass is every dude's ultimate gym dream. But as usual, it's easier dreamt than done. Growing muscle naturally is a task and the truth is that most men fail at doing it. However, here is how you CAN do it: Ditch the hard work and do the smart work. Mentioned below are some points that you absolutely shouldn't do if you are serious about building a good physique: 1) Doing Too Much Volume â â â â â â â â The first mistake one makes is doing too much volume. Volume (sets x load x reps), your total workload, is the key to muscle growth, but doing too much actually hinders recovery and will stop your progress. Most people benefit from ~10-20 sets/muscle/week. Your actual volume depends on various individual factors like age, training experience, genetics, etc. © Pixabay 2) Doing Junk Volume Going along with too much volume is not going hard enough on each set. If you have 4 reps left in each set, you will be able to do much more volume because each set is so damn easy. I recommend doing each set ~1-2 reps from failure but sometimes more, sometimes less.â â â â â â â â â 3) No Structured plan If you don't have a plan and just walk into a gym, sure you may make progress. But that doesn't mean your progress can't be better. When you have a plan, you reduce guesswork and can manage variables better. 4) Training All Muscles Once Per Week â â â â â â That's called a bro split. It is okay to start your training with it, but it's not ideal when it comes to overtime progress. Not only do they leave gains on the table by only stimulating muscle protein synthesis in major muscles 1 time per week, but they also allow people with faster rates of fitness decay to experience detraining. © Thinkstock 5) Chasing The Pump Via Lightweights Progressive overload means you do more work, and thus more volume, over time. Getting a pump causes muscle growth, but you will reach a point at which you have to increase the load/reps. Hence focus on doing more volume over time and save pump work for the end of your workouts. 6) Not Applying A Wide Range Of Rep Ranges Lastly, scientific research has shown that muscle growth can happen in a variety of rep ranges. Training in rep ranges outside of 8-12 reps can help you train different capacities and help push for progressive overload. So you can split your training in a broad spectrum from 3-30 reps.

  6. Butt poses are often used as a clickbait to almost any topic related to fitness lately. There are booty shakes and booty shapers being sold on the internet, which unfortunately do sell like hot cakes. Although the shakes and shapers are a scam, building a good butt is not. Your butt or your glute muscles are important and there are benefits associated with having well-developed glutes. Here are the top 4 reasons you should consider training your glutes more often: 1. They Are An Aesthetic Now, I am not talking about the pictures and the poses that some female Instagram models post. That could be an added benefit, yeah. But if your goal is to develop an aesthetic-looking physique, the glutes stand out. They give that look from the side or the back which make you appear more muscular. Having well-developed glutes is also a criterion when it comes to judging bodybuilding and physique shows these days. © Acefitness 2. They Enhance Your Lifts And Performance If your goal is to develop strength and have impressive numbers on your squats and the deadlifts, strong glutes are often the key drivers of force here. Along with that, any sport that requires you to generate a lot of force in a short period of time, will more often than not, require firing from your glutes. What would you like to have at that time? A water pistol or a real gun? You can also see that the world's best sprinters have the best-developed glutes. Take a clue. 3. Reduces Your Risk Of Injuries When you are squatting or deadlifting, a minor mistake could keep you injured and out of the gym for months. Squat injuries are more often caused by knees caving in and your deadlift injuries are usually caused by the rounding of the lower back. Your glutes enable hip abduction and external rotation, which severely reduce the occurrence of a knee valgus or rounding of your lower back. The stronger your glutes are, the more efficient they will be in doing these functions. 4. It Improves Your Posture A lot of people, due to busy lives and being sedentary, suffer from lower back issues. They often have a slouch when sitting and having lower back pain is as common as the common cold due to the same. Developed and strong glutes allow you to maintain a good posture by aligning your lower back. It does not directly translate to better lower back health, as a lot of people suffer lower back health issues, simply from being overweight or doing stupid stuff at the gym. But stronger glutes do correlate to lesser chances of a lower back injury or pain. So yes, if any of the above-mentioned things like better aesthetics, better posture, lesser chances of injury, increased athletic performance, better lower back health or quality of life seem desirable to you, then you should include some direct glute training and develop these muscles. Here's the rock building his behind – View this post on Instagram Fun warmup activating glutes and hips before destroying legs. 5 second hold at the top, squeezed, with resistance bands above the knees using 225lbs. Gotta warm up properly due to all my sexy lower body injuries from years of wrestling and football (two L4 & L5 low back disc ruptures, five knee surgeries, torn Achilles, tore both my quad and adductor from my pelvis and repaired three hernias all in one lovely emergency surgery). Lots of fun pain, but we fight thru it and come back stronger and better. Plus this exercise showcases the relentless power in my thrust game which is my jam when we practice making babies. ððªð¾ð¦ Who wants extra cheese on their pizza? Because I got endless amounts with that last paragraph. Bottom line/ do your warm ups.

  7. We've already heard a few stories about banning the insanely popular game PUBG. Last week, the Gujarat government forwarded a circular banning the game from educational institutions. The state's primary education department had issued a circular that directed primary schools to ensure that a ban has been implemented on PUBG. Now, 11-year-old Ahad has written to the Maharashtra Government to ban the game. In the letter, he said, "it promotes immoral conduct such as violence, murder, aggression, looting, gaming addiction and cyberbullying". The boy further wrote in the letter, "I will be compelled to seek appropriate legal [civil and criminal] proceeding as per law; naturally at your cost and consequences" if the game is not banned." The letter was sent to seven ministers, including Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Ravi Shankar Prasad (Ministry of Electronics and IT), and Vinod Tawde (Maharashtra Education Minister). When Ahad didn't receive a response from the public officials, he then decided to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Bombay High Court. © YouTube The Jammu and Kashmir Students Association has also asked the Governor of the state to ban the game immediately due to poor board exam results. PUBG Mobile has been very popular since launch and people are literally hooked onto it. There have also been cases when people got addicted to the game and turned to physical self-harm. We must keep in mind that these games are built for entertainment and not supposed to be taken so seriously. A recent report by the Quartz states that a PUBG fan spends more than 8 hours in a week on an average on the game. © YouTube More than 120 cases of PUBG addiction were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). Signs of addiction include deprivation of sleep, loss of real-life interests, drop in lecture attendance, and poor academic performances. While the game is fun to play, a major reason for the fan following is the fad around it. One reason why many Indians are playing the game is that “everyone's talking about it.” Source: India Today
  8. From her extroverted yet rebellious character in 'Tanu Weds Manu', to her bravely innocuous and underrated character in 'Queen', Kangana has come a long way to reach where all the A-list stars in Bollywood are at the moment. Her ability to direct her way towards more meaningful and wholesome roles is an added quality to her personality and she carries her strength as a woman, very comfortably, all around her. So much so, we really couldn't think of anyone else who would aptly fit the role of Manikarnika, from 'Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi'. (c)Zee Studios The role demanded someone who was very comfortable in their skin yet fierce and bold in their ideology, just like Jhansi ki Rani was. After the release of 'Queen', Kangana thought of pursuing a more technical side to films and hence thought of her stance as a director. After what seemed like a struggle of putting the beautiful film in front of a billion people, she proudly shares directorial credits with Krish Jagalamudi, for 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi'. (c)Twitter Rani Laxmibai was an epitome of survival of the fittest and gave gender roles another realm altogether when she contributed her half to fight for India's first war on independence. If anyone fits the bill to reincarnate her persona on screen, it's Kangana and here are some reasons why! (1) Her Determination To Achieve Anything While Kangana has come into the limelight for many controversies regarding her personal stance in life, her grit and determination to move forward and stand her ground has stood first and foremost. From her stand on the #MeToo movement to her fight to tell the truth about her past abusive relationships, she's managed to survive the fittest notions about being a strong powerful and determined woman and that clearly reflects in her character play as Manikarnika, in the movie. Manikarnika fought hard against the British rule to keep her kingdom intact and fought for her people rather than bowing down to the British. Her actual determination to achieve that dream and fight for it, is what makes Kangana more fitting to play the role. (c)Zee Studios (2) Her Tryst With Trying Tougher Roles If you remember her first movie, 'Gangster', you would know how complex that role was for a debutant and yet she bagged a Filmfare award for her performance for it. Kangana has always taken a variety of challenging roles, which make her characters stand out and you can never forget them. For instance, in 'Fashion', she played a model who was a drug addict, a role which is hard to fit into. Even though Priyanka stole the limelight for the film, Kangana's feature was well appreciated too. After taking numerous challenging roles to experiment and play with, she was truly deserving of one of the most challenging roles and she did fair justice to it as well. (c)Zee Studios (3) She's Fearless Kangana has always been known as someone who doesn't fear anyone. From calling Karan Johar the 'flag-bearer of nepotism' in the industry to speaking up against the Karni Sena threats, this woman fears nothing. She's always fighting her own battles fearlessly and has a strong belief system. So much so, people look up to her for the same. This is one of the main reasons why she fits the bill to play Manikarnika because her personality, as a whole, reflects her on-screen presence and makes the character more real and vivacious. (c)Zee Studios No, this isn't a paid article or a PR stunt to promote Kangana or her acting prowess. This is a critical review of someone who is a perfectionist in every right from someone who loved watching her on-screen and sharing a perspective or two. I really hope 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi' does phenomenally well, because it's not just about Kangana's prowess to nail the role but a story about a legend who should never be forgotten.

  9. I am sure you meet a lot of women every now and then, and you classify them under different stereotypes. Some may come off as easy-going, while some are snobbish or grounded and some are fascinating, and some complicated. The last tag of girls who come off as 'complicated' isn't new in any way. If men don't understand the women they're trying to ask out, hit on or date, they usually put a tag on her and call her 'complicated'. While she may or may not be complicated, certain things make it difficult to assess a girl's state of mind, making her a complicated girl. © Eros Internaional Men are never complicated though. They're either nice guys or bad boys. So, for them to understand the aspects that conclude the parameters of a 'complicated' girl is next to impossible, and giving up on one is the most foolish thing you can ever do. Why, you ask? Well, research does say if you date complicated women, you've found yourself the best deal and your dating life will be fulfilling and adventurous all at once, and not in a bad way at all! So, if you think you've encountered a 'complicated girl' here are 7 personality traits she has, that'll make you fall in love with her instantly: (1) She'll Never Bore you She's complicated because she's someone who has never had an easy life and she uses every opportunity in the book, to make her life as spectacular as she can. She's a great conversationalist because she has a pool of ideas and perspectives she can share and discuss with you, at any given point in time. In all probability, she's used a lot of them on herself to get out of a myriad of situations in the past. So, if you think you'll get bored in her company, you're very wrong. Either she'll involve you in some eclectic and interesting hobbies and activities or she'll drench you with some crazy anecdotes from her life and you'll never get enough of the thrill she throws your way every now and then. © T-series (2) She's Rather Blunt & Honest Because of how life has treated her she's done beating around the bush and she tells it like it is; straight to your face, as honestly as anyone can! Bluntness is one of her main qualities and she'll always tell you what she expects from you and will call out your bullshit instantly. Now, if you're looking for someone who can be fooled easily, she's not the kinda girl you want to date. Along with being blunt and honest, she's emotional too and feels deeply. So, if she feels that way towards you trust me, you've found the right girl! © Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd (3) She's Full Of Wisdom Yes, life has been tough for her and to get by it, she probably had to figure things out the hardest way possible, on her own. If she's tough from the outside, it's only because she's chosen a difficult path for herself. Because she's experienced a lot more than people who've lived protective lives. She's wiser than the usual bunch of people you meet and can give you healthy perspectives on numerous things. All you need to do is just trust her judgment. © AA Films (4) She's Not Easy Yes, it's a challenge to be with her because she doesn't let any man take her for granted and always makes him feel like he needs to work for it and that's fair right? You always need to work for the best things in life. She hates being taken for granted because she's done the best she could to reach where she is, and anyone who doesn't appreciate that doesn't stand a chance with her. You may spend a lot of time in hand to make her fall for you but you will never regret doing so! © Balaji Motion Pictures (5) She's A Mystery She's not an open book for sure. I don't really know what it is but people, women especially, who've gone through a lot in life are never too vocal about it and are always guarded. So, if you meet her at a crowded coffee shop or a bar or even at her house, she'll take a lot of time, maybe 5 more dates to completely open up to you and trust you and tell you things other women might tell you on their first date! She's absolutely unpredictable and will always keep you guessing. © AA Films (6) She May Want You But She'll Never 'Need' You A complicated woman, so to speak, has gone through a lot in life and she's very self-sufficient in nature, because of the experiences she'd had to face in the past. More than anything life has taught her a lot of patience and calmness to deal with things. She does not crave for a man and has no emotional needs she needs to fulfil through another being. She's happy on her own. Unlike others who like to rush through relationships like there's a medal waiting for them at the end of it, this woman, likes taking her relationships one day at a time, rather slow and steady and that's why she's good at them too. She may want to be with you, but she will never need you. That's a fact. © T-Series (7) She's Intelligent & Passionate While these two traits go hand in hand, it's one of the finer qualities of a complicated woman. Most of us are intelligent, yes but someone who understands their own complexities is a level evolved. She'll always inspire you to explore new things and force you to never give up. She's had a life where she's sifted through a lot of unkindness, so she introspects a lot into the future and makes decisions based on her own experiences and most of them are passionate. You will definitely learn a lot if you date someone like her. © Fox Star Studios A complicated girl is not someone you run away from because she's too much analytical work! You embrace her and never let her go because she's literally the best of the lot! Humble yet opinionated, kind yet dynamic and she'll change you for the better man! So, the next time you come across one, maybe start a conversation with her and see your life change?
  10. If you plan on getting a moustache, the pornstar moustache probably is the best kind to start with because A, it's easy to grow and maintain unlike a full-on handlebar, and B, it doesn't look like you're trying too hard. Hrithik Roshan started off he year with sporting one, and we think he has never looked cooler. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Now one might argue that Hrithik legit looks like a Greek God and can pull off anything, but why should that mean that you can't? Life is short, and sometimes a seemingly small grooming move can change it for you. Why we think so? Read on. Here are 3 solid reasons why every man should try getting a pornstar moustache, at least once in their life. 1. For the uninitiated, a pornstar moustache or a pornstache derived its name from the '80s, when male pornstars actually used to keep moustaches like these, and it was a rage among the ladies. Lesson to learn from history: Ladies dig moustaches, and they probably won't say it out loud. Get one and find out for yourself if it works! © Viral Bhayani 2. 2018 was all about beards. Now, we aren't saying that the beard is dead, because it never will, but variety is the spice of life, they say. If you have a beard, probably crop it short, and let the moustache grow out, for a swanky new look. If you prefer being clean shaven, why not step up your game and try getting a moustache? It can change everything about how you look. © Viral Bhayani 3. A pornstar moustache is easy to grow and maintain, and it is the only kind of facial hair experiment where not much is at stake. Don't like it? Shave it off or let your beard grow (it will take less than a week for a thick stubble to catch up in most cases). Plus, you can experiment with multiple aesthetics by altering the length of your stubble. It's a win-win, we say! © Viral Bhayani Still not convinced? Take a look at Hrithik. We rest our case.
  11. 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.
  12. Every year, at least one Bollywood movie is released where an actor gets into tremendous shape for the role and people collectively lose their minds. There are multiple videos and posts that get made debating whether the actor got ripped while on steroids, what was his diet, what was his training, and so on. The debate goes on and then everyone forgets about it at some point. And then another movie comes in and the cycle continues. One interesting thing that happens is that multiple news and media outlets interview these actors and ask them for fitness tips for youngsters and other people to follow. This act of putting the actors on a pedestal and asking for fitness tips is outright ridiculous. Here are 5 reasons why they are not the right people to give out fitness information: 1. They Are Not Nutritionists Or Personal Trainers © YouTube It is not their job to know about these things. It is like asking an aeroplane passenger if they know how to operate a flight, as they have flown in an aeroplane. It is outright stupid. 2. They Do It In A Time Frame That Would Be Harmful To Others © YouTube Actors these days end up doing three to four movies a year. Gone are the days when they would just have a single blockbuster movie and reap the benefits of it for a year. The industry is flooded with talent and to stay relevant, they need to be in front of the audiences more. For the same, they need to transition between roles and their physique changes drastically. It is unhealthy and downright insanity for a normal 9-to-5 working guy to try to replicate that. 3. It Is Their Only Job If you have seen this interview of Aamir Khan regarding his transformation for 'Dangal', you know this is not possible with your day job. He would go on a trek for 3-3.5 hours daily, eat low-calorie foods, go to the gym, swim, do cycling or play tennis and then again go for a walk. That is 8-9 hours of daily exercise to shed weight fast. Why do they do that? They get paid to do that. Can you do it? I do not think so. Image 2 4. Their Theories Are Outdated There are multiple scientific studies that have proven time and again that it is the total amount of calories that you eat vs. expenditure that makes you gain weight or lose weight. Things like eating carbs after 6 pm do not really matter or do not go beyond the laws of thermodynamics. There are studies that have also shown that sugar is not linked to cancer and saying so is trying to simplify a very complex problem that is beyond the understanding of a layman. Still, these Bollywood actors think that their knowledge is superior to scientists who dedicate all their lives to studying and do these researches. Here are some absolute gems: "Sugar is poison"- Milind Soman "Do not eat carbs at night" - Varun Dhawan "Do not eat after 6:30 pm"- Akshay Kumar 5. They Do Steroids If you actually thought they all are natural, you must be living in a deluded world and I am happy to burst that bubble for you. Just watch this video where Ranbir Kapoor says that they take Clenbuterol (a banned drug) to have a body transformation and being shunned by Shahid Kapoor. Doing drugs to build a body (Ranbir Kapoor and Sushant Singh) – If you still want to put these guys on a pedestal and follow what they say, go ahead, even though I have just presented a strong case on why you should absolutely NOT.

  13. We've been using the new iPad Pro for a while and it has replaced most of the functions we would carry out on a laptop. We can type stories like this, edit images with ease and watch video content without any hiccups. It's powered by Apple's latest A12X Bionic processor and has a brand new Apple Pencil as an accessory. It starts at Rs 71,900 for the 11-inch model and can go up to Rs. 1,71,900 for the top model with 1TB storage. Sure, it's a costly gadget to purchase especially when you combine the smart keyboard cover and Apple Pencil, but I can truly be an ultimate machine to own. Here are five Reasons why you should consider investing in the 2018 iPad Beautiful Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The new iPad Pro comes with the prettiest and most vivid screens on an iPad ever. It has a refresh rate of up to 120 fps and can adjust it automatically depending on the work you're doing. Apple has taken a cue from the iPhone X and iPhone XS and sports a very thin bezel that improves the viewing experience. It has a resolution of 2732x2048 and with accurate colour representation and P3 wide colour display, it makes it addictive to consume video content on Netflix and other streaming platforms. It even as Face ID incorporated which works from both landscape and portrait modes. 2. Fastest Tablet Ever © Apple The 2018 iPad Pro is powered by the A12X Bionic processor that is probably the fastest chipset on any gadget ever. It is even capable of beating some Intel Core i7 powered laptops in some instances. It is capable of transcoding a 4K video to Full HD in under 10 minutes while an i7 computer can take more than 30 minutes. In the benchmark tests, the iPad Pro scored 4,965 in single-core and 18,092 in multi-core on Geekbench 4, a score that leaves even the Microsoft Surface behind. 3. Superb Audio © Youtube Even though Apple has removed the headphone jack, the new iPad Pro now has excellent stereo sound. Apple has outfitted four hidden speakers on the iPad Pro with a woofer and tweeter in every corner. This results in a very impressive and loud sound that delivers stereo audio no matter how you hold it. This accentuates the experience when consuming content on the iPad. 4. Unbelievable Battery Life The chipset under the hood is also responsible for delivering superb battery. Due to the efficiency of the A12X Bionic processor, the tablet is capable of lasting more than 12 hours on a single charge. This included consuming content on Netflix, browsing the web and playing Civilisation 6. In comparison, The Dell XPS 13 with 1080p display lasted just over 11 hours. 5. Improved Apple Pencil Features © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The new Apple Pencil is now redesigned to be more ergonomic and can be charged wirelessly via attaching it to the iPad Pro magnetically. It also means that it is harder to lose the Apple Pencil as it is always accessible. The new gestures on the Apple Pencil 2 (exclusive to iPad Pro 2018) are also handy if you like to work on the fly. You can double tap on the Pencil's body to activate the eraser.
  14. Huawei launched a smartphone that has been touted as the best smartphone of the year. On a personal note, I've fallen in love with this smartphone, in fact, it's the only device this year that got me genuinely excited. It looks sexy, has an insane camera and does more things than any other flagship smartphone out there. The wide-angle lens on the triple camera setup is simply mind-blowing, while it can charge super fast in under an hour. Its processor rivals Apple's A12 Bionic Chipset and delivers an exceptional gaming experience. We called it a near-perfect smartphone in our review too. Here are five detailed reasons as to why I love the Huawei Mate 20 Pro: 1. Superb Camera © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Mate 20 Pro has one of the best smartphone cameras we've used all year and also gives the Pixel 3 a run for its money. It is outfitted with Leica's 40MP RGB camera, 20MP wide-angle camera and an 8MP telephoto camera. This translates to capturing more details with a wider field of view, making it perfect for landscape shots. You can capture an entire valley as we did during the course of our review. The Mate 20 Pro could also manage to take a beautiful portrait shot which you can have a look at below. What is this camera!! #HuaweiMate20pro pic.twitter.com/5JX7q195GM — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) December 4, 2018 We've got purple skies here, the #HuaweiMate20pro did an incredible job capturing it. pic.twitter.com/xO8XsgUpYI — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) December 4, 2018 In the middle of nowhere. pic.twitter.com/IDD0DhR78X — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) December 3, 2018 2. It Has A Massive Battery The Huawei Mate 20 Pro has a mammoth of a 4200mAh battery. That's more than any other flagship device out there. It lasted at least 19 hours on a single charge during the course of our review and this included heavy gaming, voice calls, video consumption and hours of listening to music over Bluetooth. What makes it extra special is the 40W charger included in the box. We were able to charge the phone to 70% in 37 minutes and got fully charged in almost an hour. We even used the device to wirelessly charge the iPhone XS Max using reverse cate and still had enough juice left to use the phone. 3. The Fastest In-Display Sensor © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Even though you won't end up using this feature thanks to the 3D IR face-scanning system on board, it's still a useful feature. I often used the in-display fingering scanner at a nightclub when it's too dark for the 3D IR face-scanning system to work. It's also the fastest in-display fingerprint scanner we've ever used which makes it easier to use. 4. The Powerful Kirin 980 Processor © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The new chipset by Huawei packs some serious punch when it comes to performance. It beat Snapdragon 845 processor with much ease when comparing the benchmark scores. In terms of performance, it is one of the fastest Android smartphones we've used this year and sometimes beats the OnePlus 6T as well. The chipset has been coupled with 6GB of RAM which is more than enough for Huawei's platform. Gaming on the smartphone was a delight and gave us the extra power we needed to get that chicken dinner. 5. 3D Face Scanning System © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Huawei has also included a 3D Face unlock feature that essentially works as it does on the iPhone XS. It projects IR dots onto your face to recognise every single facial feature and works extremely well even in low light conditions. In fact, it is the fastest 3D Face Scanning System that you don't even realise the device has already scanned your face. It doesn't even give you an opportunity to use the in-display fingerprint sensor. It has a false match rate below one in a million making it one of the most secure phones on the planet. Huawei has managed to release a smartphone that is truly near-perfect. It has the right combination of innovations, sexy design and performs like a beast. It looks beautiful and is one of the most unique looking smartphones out there. There are however a few things that can be improved upon. The fact that the headphone jack is missing made us quite disappointed as we couldn't use our own headphones. We're also not big fans of the user interface as EMUI needs more refinement. Apart from these two caveats, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is probably our favourite smartphone of 2018.
  15. Deadlift is the king of all exercises. All it requires is a barbell, some plates and the courage to lift the damn bar off the floor! However, many people avoid deadlifts, as it fatigues not just the body but the mind itself. As much as the deadlift is demanding, it is equally rewarding. If you are currently not doing deadlifts, here are top 5 reasons to start doing them. 1) Hits 10 Muscles With Every Rep! Every rep of deadlift stimulates 10 muscles: trapezius, teres major, rhomboideus, latissimus dorsi, semitendinosus, semimembranosus, erector spinae, quadriceps vastus lateralis, biceps femoris. This makes deadlifts an extremely effective mass builder. Since multiple muscles work simultaneously, every rep of deadlifts also burns more calories compared to other lifts. Thus, if you want to get leaner, ditch the band work and start deadlifting. © Pixabay 2) Builds Huge Traps Traps are one muscle group which can drastically enhance a man's physique. And shrugs are perhaps the only thing most people do to stimulate them. Traps are Type-1 muscle fibre dominant, meaning they respond better to heavy loads. In dumbbell shrugs, you are limited by the heaviest dumbbells in your gym (mostly 35-40 Kg) and heavy barbell shrugs can lead to shoulder issues or aggravate if you already have some. Also, it is worth mentioning that shrugs only work the upper trapezius. Heavy deadlifts effectively stimulate the whole trapezius muscles (upper, middle & lower). Powerlifters and Weightlifters have huge traps and you will rarely find them doing shrugs. Thus, if you want the traps of a beast, deadlift like a beast. 3) Builds Explosiveness A 2011 study published in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning found that deadlifts were not only useful for building strength and mass but also for building explosiveness. Explosiveness is an important trait required for many sports. This is the reason you will find top-level athletes like Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Sergio Ramos incorporating deadlifts in their training program. © Unsplash 4) Increases Core Strength Many fitness enthusiasts and coaches refer to the abdominal region as 'core' muscles, needless to say, this is a huge misconception. Your body's 'core' is a combination of pelvic floor muscles, transversus abdominis, multifidus, internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis, erector spinae (sacrospinalis) especially the longissimus thoracis, and the diaphragm. Together these muscles act as an engine that drive your limbs in the majority of compound lifts. Deadlifts strengthen the whole core area and have a huge carry over to the majority of other lifts. If you can do heavy deadlift (important-with good form) you will also be able to do heavy squats, bench press and overhead press. 5) Increases Work Capacity Deadlifts also stimulate the central nervous system a lot more than other lifts. This is the reason you feel your soul drained out after doing multiple sets of heavy deadlifts. However, if deadlifts are incorporated smartly in a workout routine they can be an excellent tool for increasing work capacity i.e. the total number of exercises/sets you can perform. In simple terms- if you can do more sets of deadlifts, doing more sets of bench press, squats, chin ups etc will be a cakewalk for you. More sets = More Volume = More Muscle Gains By now, I am pretty sure you are waiting for your next training session to pull some heavy weights off the floor. Although deadlifts look like a simple movement, there is a lot more than just bending over and picking up the barbell. Before you attempt heavy deadlifts, we recommend you go through this article.

  16. 2019 is round about the corner and so are New Year fitness resolutions. While some people would just want to lose weight, also present in large numbers are young gullible dudes trying to put on muscle in a very short span of time. This article is for those young guns that often incline towards steroid usage. 1. To Avoid The Shut Down Of Natural Testosterone Production Let`s get this straight. Whenever you put any anabolic steroid in your body (inject-able or oral), your own natural testosterone production gets shut down. Though the body is very smart, it will still be able to produce testosterone again when you go off steroids but you will never ever be able to get to your natural pre-cycle levels back. © YouTube 2. To Testicular Atrophy ( Shrunken Balls) Also known as 'testicular atrophy', this is again very common during steroid usage. A study found two third of 500 steroid users experienced this type of shrinkage while using steroids. It`s simple. When you feed your body testosterone externally (in form of various steroids), your testicles don`t feel the need to produce the same by their own. Just like they say 'if you don`t use it, you lose it'. Hence they shrink. 3. To Have A Healthy Heart It`s a proven fact that long term steroid usage weakens the heart. Usually people end up doing more and more just like any other habit forming activity. Even several years after discontinuation, increased heart size was found among steroid users as compared to drug free athletes. The left ventricle of heart which is mainly responsible for pumping blood was found to be quite weaker in anabolic steroid users. This is also the reason why many bodybuilders do more cardio to protect heart when using steroids. And if you are an average desk jobber who doesn`t have much time for cardio, you are fucked even more. 4. To Avoid Having Man Breasts Steroids also cause increase in the estrogen levels. Yes, every man has both kinds of hormones- male hormone (testosterone) and female hormone (estrogen). Due to spike in estrogen caused by certain steroids or a combination of steroids, you can develop Gynecomastia which makes your nipples to swell. Now this resemblance is not exactly like that of a woman's chest but good enough to embarrass you as a man. Many steroid users have to go under the knife to get rid of it. © Pixabay 5. To Remain Sane Since steroids throw hormones inside your body out of place, it`s common to see extreme aggression in some individuals also known as 'roid rage'. I`m not saying everyone who takes steroids experiences this but if you are generally very moody, or short tempered, anabolic steroids can amplify that. That's it folks!

  17. Shahid Kapoor doesn't care what people think. Why do we think so? He just went ahead and - wait for it - shaved his beard off. The same beard he has been keeping for years, the one that saw him through some of the biggest hits of his career. Now one might think it's just a shave, and what's the big deal? Let us answer that question in three points. Here are three reasons why we think Shahid Kapoor going for a clean shave abruptly is the gutsiest grooming move of 2018. 1. It takes guts to shave your beard off in the month of November. When the entire world is obsessed with feeding their insta feeds with #NoShaveNovember and #Movember, for a mainstream Bollywood actor to go ahead and pull the ultimate stunt is nothing short of gutsy. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Nov 26, 2018 at 6:21pm PST 2. Shahid has done it for a role (in case you hadn't guessed it already). He is playing the lead in 'Kabir Singh', the Hindi remake of superhit Telugu movie 'Arjun Reddy'. Such transformations yield really good results, we must say. Remember Aamir Khan's cult hairstyle for 'Ghajini'? © Viral Bhayani 3. Shahid seems to have shaved 10 years off his age along with the beard. Usually, getting rid of one's beard can be an extremely risky move, but Shahid clearly knows what he's doing - a least as far as his latest pictures without the beard goes. He looks just like he did when he started off his career in Bollywood. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Nov 25, 2018 at 8:00am PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Nov 24, 2018 at 8:28am PST This man right here has two children. Say what?! © Viral Bhayani All that matters is that he looks great even without the beard, and we're totally digging this new look.
  18. Before we delve into this, first, I need to get something out of the way. NAAAAAAAAAAAAAINSGONYAMABAGITHIBABA. Okay. I had to do that. Anyone who has watched the nineties classic 'The Lion King' knows that this powerful opening Zulu chant, with the rising sun in the backdrop, calling out to all the animals in Pride Lands, is nothing short of perfection. I still get goosebumps. At one point, it even was my alarm back in college! I still remember the first time I saw the movie. I was 6 and I had gone to spend the holidays at my aunt's place in Bangalore. I was particularly out of control that day and my aunt, who was on the verge on losing her mind, plonked me down in front of the TV and popped a videotape into the VCR, asking me to quietly watch the 'cartoon'. The 'word' cartoon was enough for me to shut up and fix my complete attention on the giant Onida TV. I will never forget how my heart started beating faster when the Zulu chant began and I saw all the animals wake from their slumber and make their way to Pride Rock to meet their future king. I was only 6 and this was my first Disney movie, so obviously I was not ready for the avalanche of emotions that this movie engulfed me in. I still remember how Mufasa's death destroyed me and how the tears wouldn't stop, as I watched little Simba desperately try to wake his dad up by tugging his ear… okay, I need a moment…sorry…I can't…. If you are with me so far, you know how much this movie means to us nineties kids. It opened us up to the world of Disney and introduced us to the magic of animation. “When I was a child, I wouldn't eat unless my parents played Lion King. Seeing the new trailer filled me with childhood nostalgia,” said my 25-year-old junior from college, Jacinth Miriyam. Which is why it goes without saying that the people most excited for the live-action remake of the classic movies, even more so than kids, are adults, and here's why: 1. A Throwback To Our Golden Childhood So, when the trailer dropped today and I heard James Earl Jones' magnificent, sonorous Mufasa voice saying “Everything the light touches, is our kingdom”…it was like someone had pressed a button in my brain and I was 6 all over again. This movie signifies a time gone by, a time of innocence, a time when childhood meant watching animated movies with our mouths hanging open, marvelling at a whole another world. “For me, The Lion King instantly represents my childhood. It was my favourite movie ever at that time. It made me laugh, cry and feel anger at the same time. I think this movie teaches resilience in all of its purity, and that's what makes it immortal and so loved”, my friend Chiara Lana from Italy told me when I asked her what she felt about watching it again. 2. Watching It On The Big Screen After Almost 20 Years I am not among the lucky ones who got to see this movie on the big screen (my first movie in a theatre was 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun'!). So, watching it in a live-action format on a giant screen will not only make this special, but in a way, I will be able to make up to my little self who missed this marvel on a big screen. “Watching movies in halls was still a novel concept back in the day, at least for my family. So now that I get to see it again, even though in a different format, somehow I feel like I have honoured my childhood by catching up on what I missed out all those years ago.”- James Matthew, my 28-year-old buddy from school. 3. A Need To Remember All The Emotions We Felt When We Saw It The First Time I was only 6, so obviously I was not prepared for so many things. The hurt I felt at Scar's betrayal, the devastation at Mufasa's death, the joy at Simba re-uniting with Nala and his mother, the horror at watching Simba and Scar fight, and the exhilaration at Simba finally climbing up Pride Rock to take his place…it was a roller-coaster that a tiny little me did not see coming. I will never forget how I ran up to my aunt after the movie ended and demanded some serious answers from her, especially as to how could a lion kill his own brother? I will never forget her face when I asked her “Will you do this to me too, auntie?” My 29-year-old friend from college, Shruti Menon, echoed the same sentiments, “Mufasa's death was so unpredictable and heartbreaking especially when you're watching as a kid. It really shook me as a child and still does, to be honest. But when you grow older, you do realise there's so much strength and beauty to the story, to remember who you are and where you come from. After all, it's the circle of life.” 4. The Beautiful Soundtrack I am pretty sure this is going to be a sing-a-long movie, as 90 per cent of the people in the hall will be comprised of adults, who already know all the songs from the movie by-heart! I'll be lying if I tell you that I'm not going to brush up on my lyrics before I catch the movie. “Oh, I just can't wait to be kiiiiiiiiiiiiing”. 5. Timon And Pumba They were, still are, and always will be my favourite set of friends/sidekicks in a Disney movie (Mushu from 'Mulan' coming in second). I mean, come on! They are basically the life of the movie and I have never seen anything like them till date in a film. From finding a half-dead Simba as a cub, to raising him and teaching him to find the joys of life, to ultimately watching him transform from their goofy friend to the mighty King of the Jungle, Timon and Pumba are the epitome of true friendship and by God, I wanted a pet pig after watching the movie back then. The new trailer that was dropped today has left nineties kid across the planet screaming. Baby Simba looks so freaking cute! It is so satisfying in every way and each and every CGI animal looks like perfection. Honestly, even if this movie had dropped when I was like 50 or something, my excitement levels would still have been the same. This movie is a representation of my glorious childhood, which I am proud to say that kids these days will never, ever get to experience, no matter how much they try. It goes without saying that 'The Lion King' is going to be a success as there is no chance of failure anywhere. The cast itself is nothing short of iconic and has my Goddess BEYONCE in it as Nala! So, all I can do now is mentally prepare myself for next year, so that I still have my sanity intact by the end of the movie, and am not left a crying, quivering, destroyed mess of a woman!
  19. 'Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes Of Grindelwald' just hit the theatres, and you should watch it ASAP because the spoilers are going to get you and ruin your life. This article, however, contains no such spoilers. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's discuss about a particular fantastic beast - one of our favourites. This one is perhaps the cutest of them all, and the most mischievous too. We're talking about the magical Niffler. © YouTube © YouTube The first movie was enough to get us obsessed with them, but after watching the second movie, we are just convinced that every man should have a Niffler as a pet. Here are 4 reasons: 1. Nifflers are talented. They are natural treasure hunters. Tired of being broke? Get one and let it loose. You'll be rich in no time. Yes, the neighbourhood will complain about a mysterious crime-wave, but they had it coming anyway because it's time they paid back for poking their snouts into your business all the time. © YouTube 2. Nifflers aren't domestic creatures. In fact, they should not be domesticated because they can be destructive. So, you don't even have to keep them inside your house. They burrow and can live under the ground. Moral of the story: You don't need to have the conversation with your mum about keeping one in the house. Just keep something shiny handy every time you want to call them. Hassle-free AF! © Wizards And Whatnot 3. They are cute. They are naughty. They are faithful (wait till you find out what happens in the end of FB:2). They are just like doggos - that too intelligent ones like retrievers. In fact, they actually do retrieve gold. They will fill the void in your heart, as well as in your wallet. Why would you not want one? They are hands down the best pets, ever! © YouTube Just one teeny tiny technicality: they aren't real. However, baby Echidnas (also called Puggles), might just be the inspiration behind the creation of Nifflers. © Huffpost © Lorinda Taylor They look just like Nifflers, although we aren't sure about the retrieving treasure bit. It's worth a shot we say. Let the wizards have the Nifflers, while us Muggles make do with the Puggles.
  20. Has the finale of a movie ever made you feel like the creators are stupid for creating sequels? I've not felt this angry in a long time. I mean, the brilliance of the climax of 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald' was ruined by the fact that I'd have to wait God knows how long to see more. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this series suffers from the same problem the Hobbit series did. It is not too long. It is not boring in parts. It is not different from anything else that has come out of the magical mind of J.K. Rowling. I'm just pissed off that they didn't go the Netflix way and release all the movies together. Come on Warner Bros., we know you can do it! Stop making us wait! © Warner Brothers Pictures Honestly, I didn't think anything could come close to the way I felt after 'Avengers: Infinity War.' But, 'The Crimes Of Grindelwald' turned me into a 16-year-old boy once again. I was back in the magical world I grew up in. While the first Fantastic Beasts movie served as a sort of welcome back to the Universe, this was the housewarming party. And guess what, everyone's invited! Okay, enough rambling, it's time to delve into the wizarding world and see what our protagonist, Newt Scamander is up to. No no, one more thing. Let me address all the other movie reviewers who have chosen to rip this movie apart for having Grindelwald in the title and not making him a central character. The movie is part of the 'Fantastic Beasts' series and it is the story of one man and one man alone. Not Albus Dumbledore, not Gellert Grindelwald. No, not even Credence Barebone! It is the story of Newt Scamander and don't you forget it. Also, here's the background score to help make this a more entertaining read. Now, let's get into it! Those Damn Muggles Why do muggles have to be so different? I understand that we all have jobs but, do you send an electrician to fix the plumbing? No! Then why would you send a muggle to review a Fantastic Beasts movie? Yes, it's best to detach yourself when writing a review, but sometimes, just sometimes, forming a strong bond with the lore behind the film you're watching, could amplify every single word. © Warner Brothers Pictures Is this the perfect movie for someone who has never seen a single Harry Potter movie? Hell no! I'm pretty sure there are a lot of Potterheads who won't consider this the best in the series either. But, none of them, I repeat, none of them, will call this the worst. And even if anyone does, is being the worst in one of the best series ever made actually bad? As Ralph of Wreck-It fame would say, “I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad.” Make sense? Kind of? Yeah, I think so too. National Treasures No, Nicholas Cage isn't going to sneak into this article (or you could say he did). There are very few people who I'd consider calling National Treasures (Jeremy & Chris from CinemaSins know what I'm talking about). Jude Law & Johnny Depp are right up there. Yes, Johnny has made some questionable decisions in his life, but the eccentricity that he brings to the screen is seconded by none (although Aamir did give it his best shot). As for Jude Law, he was the man that took Watson out from behind Sherlock's shadow. Now if that's not an achievement then what is. © Warner Brothers Pictures But, the two men I believe should be turned into national treasures right now are Eddie Redmayne and Ezra Miller. It's not the power-packed scenes that make me believe they are amazing. It's the simple ones. Their mannerisms. It's like they are the characters they portray. Not a single slip. You could literally watch the first and second movie in the Fantastic Beasts series and see no continuity errors in their mannerisms at all. Now, that's what I consider great acting. The Magical World Of Harry Potter Yeah, that's how we were introduced to J.K. Rowling's 'Wizarding World.' But here, we get to see a world that doesn't even know of the existence of Harry Potter. Is it not as magical? Well, it's a lot darker for sure. But, it's certainly just as magical. I hate the fact that we will never be able to go back to the first time we got on the train with Harry. That scene, although so simple, had the deepest impact on me. I'm pretty sure it did on all of us. We all desperately waited for our letter from Hogwarts for months, didn't we? It's because of that scene. Believe it! © Warner Brothers Pictures I love that 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald,' didn't waste any time trying to introduce us to the magical world again. We're just expected to know that magic exists in this universe. It's not special. Yes, these are the prequels, but we don't need to be reintroduced to the Stupefy charm. We are expected to know what it is! That's the way it should be! Fantastic Beasts Indeed This is where I think most No-Maj's lost the plot. They came to review a Harry Potter movie. But, he isn't in the movie. So, how do you pass your time? You criticize everything you don't understand. And if you're not a Potterhead, then there's a lot you aren't understanding. Everyone complains when a movie is too on the nose with every reference it's trying to make. Everyone complains when a movie subtly references something and expects the audience to be a fan and understand exactly what is happening. What do you want? © Warner Brothers Pictures Deep down, the title of the series should be a giveaway. The series is about Fantastic Beasts and this movie had some truly fantastic ones. I'm not going to go into the details of each and every one but they're majestic creatures for sure. I could marvel at their beauty all day long. If even one of you think they deserve a separate article by themselves let me know in the comments and I'll do it. Action Set Pieces That Would Make Michael Bay Proud You see Michael, there is a way to make things blow up and still make it believable. Giant robots are just as unbelievable as magic. I can't believe I got to see some of the best action set pieces of the year in 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald.' It wasn't over the top at any point. It was all believable. I never for once thought we were venturing into the realm of the insane. Yes, you'd have to stretch the imagination a little since you are in a magical world, though. © Warner Brothers Pictures The action set piece right at the end gave me goosebumps. It was so powerful that I actually felt hope slowly drain out of my body. No, not because of what had happened. But, because I'm pretty sure I'm not going to see anything as powerful again any time soon. And quite frankly, that just sucks. James! Newton! Howard! James Newton Howard deserves a special mention. Music composers often go unnoticed by regular moviegoers without realizing how much of an impact they have on the story. Remember the feeling when you were taken back to Hogwarts for the first time? Think it was just the visuals that made it happen? Of course not! It was the music. Try watching it on mute and tell me if it has the same impact. Just a simple eagle eye view of Hogwarts can become so much more beautiful with the right music behind it. That's why James Newton Howard is also one of the leads of this movie. For sure! The Climax It's only fitting that we end with the climax. Before you read any further, be warned. Spoilers ahead! So, if you haven't watched 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald' already, bookmark this link and come back once you have. © Warner Brothers Pictures It's been a while since a movie pulled the rug out from under my feet. Yes, Marvel did it with 'Infinity War'. But, we kind of had an idea that was coming. Here, it was a bolt from the blue and that's why the shock factor was much higher. I mean, I thought it ended after the battle at the cemetery. Then I thought it ended when Newt met Dumbledore at Hogwarts and handed him the pendant containing his blood oath. But, boy did I not see the gut punch. When Gellert said the name, Aurelius, I couldn't believe my ears. I was in shock. Even if you hated every single second right up to this point, your jaw was on the floor! Admit it! I sat staring at the credits for at least 10 seconds right after instead of immediately picking up my phone and typing frantically. Yes, that's impact. Partly because I didn't see that coming and partly because I probably just saw the best movie of 2018 and there's no way to obliviate myself so I can watch it for the first time, again!
  21. It's very rare that you come across musical talents who manage to create an impression on you and leave you with an impact. Especially, in the Punjabi music industry, where every 10 days there's a new dude churning out tracks with an auto-tuned voice and a glossy video. Almost a decade ago came Bohemia, who single-handedly gave birth to Punjabi rap. In between, came many talents but nothing that would stick to the ears like wax. Then, I bumped into 'The PropheC'. It's been over 8 months now that I've been trying to find a single bogus track from this guy. Nope, found nothing. No bad tracks. He's been on the hustle since 2011 and now, 7 years deep, he still isn't getting his due recognition, despite making music that will move you whether you are at a party or in love. 1) His Music Production Genius Is Just DIFFERENT. View this post on Instagram Rakh menu sambh ke.. A post shared by The PropheC (@prophecproductions) on Nov 11, 2018 at 8:06pm PST You know what's wrong with the present Punjabi music industry? They are all apes. They mimic the west. Hip-hop, R&B or whatever's hot on the international charts, our artists hop in on the trend. 'Oh, rap's hot? Let's rap stupid stuff. Just make a hot beat and 90% of the job is done. Throw in some flossy cars, semi-naked women and a pool party'. Phew! This gets tiring very fast when all the reigning talents do the same trick over and over again. This is where The PropheC's music comes in. Listen to it once and you will feel the difference. Even though his music is also heavily influenced by hip-hop, the way he blends in Punjabi and global music together sets a different atmosphere. Not a easy feat, but when you are someone who's been doing his thing since the age of 6, you shine no matter what. 2) He Doesn't Have A Bad Song. Not ONE! View this post on Instagram Overtime on the album but the single is ready A post shared by The PropheC (@prophecproductions) on Oct 26, 2018 at 8:34pm PDT That's hard, right? I mean not making a bad song. Every artist has bad tracks to their name. But not The PropheC, well at least not till now. This dude doesn't have a track that's outright trash. Before writing this piece, I literally went through all of his studio albums, 3 in total and a mix-tape. Add to this his collaboration with some of the best names in Urban Punjabi music like Fateh Doe, Rax Star and Mickey Singh. There's not a single track you wouldn't want to replay. If you find one, please let me know! 3) His Videos Are Simple But Surreal. View this post on Instagram Still working on this album but going to share something with you soon. #sentiseason A post shared by The PropheC (@prophecproductions) on Jun 22, 2018 at 6:54pm PDT Back in 2011, when The PropheC was an amateur, his videos were cringe trains. Simply bad! But the man surely has learned his lessons. Check out his videos from the past 3 years and they ALL are fantastic. And no, they aren't like your typical desi Punjabi videos with flashy rented cars and naked Russian women dancing on the beats they can't comprehend. His videos flow like water, effortless and the idea behind each video is unique which is usually brought to life by very young talented video directors. 4) He Dresses Like He Always Dresses. Not Like The Rapper Whose Style Is In Trend At The Moment View this post on Instagram This week. #Feelin A post shared by The PropheC (@prophecproductions) on Aug 27, 2017 at 7:49pm PDT Check out his Instagram and you'll see for yourself that this dude knows how to keep it simple and real. Black tees, track pants, Nikes, slim gold chain and basic denims; a classic urban music genius. The best part is that he's been dressing this way since forever. Of course, he's up to beat with the latest swag, but he does them his way. 5) He's A Trained Music Producer And Singer View this post on Instagram Always a special moment ð½ð½ A post shared by The PropheC (@prophecproductions) on Apr 5, 2017 at 8:37pm PDT Real education and relentless practice produces results that go unchallenged. The PropheC is an example of this. He trained in classical folk music since he was six. Ten years later, at 16, he was in the studio trying to cook up magic. What shocks me is the fact that he's still not as popular as he should be with the Indian market. His new songs hit a million but actually deserve multi-million hits. It's very clear that he doesn't buy off the views on YouTube (which is very common in the Punjabi music industry) and keeps it real. What I am dead sure about is that fact that The PropheC has a very tightly-knit circuit of fans that recognize his genius, and I am one of them.
  22. Recently, I caught the flu which made me hibernate for a few days at home, lest I distribute my germs evenly at office. While grappling through various bizarre channels on television I realised I can in fact Netflix something chill and spend my sick days more viably. What I didn't know was I wasn't prepared for what was coming my way. © FlanaganFilm While glancing through the new shows to watch on Netflix I stumbled upon 'The Haunting of Hill House' (THoHH) and as intrigued as my spirit forever is, I started cuing the show. Fair warning though- don't ever watch it while you're sick or down in the dumps. It gets beneath your skin and up your psyche and tries and fiddles around with your timid mind space at that point in time. And that's exactly what it did to me. THoHH isn't just another horror show waiting for an audience popularity award and some serious reckoning on social media. It's a bit mind altering and shrewd with it's content. The kind of show you'd want to cue if you feel your inhibitions are right in place...and then suddenly they skyrocket to another galaxy. © FlanaganFilm The series starts with unfolding a familial structure slowly. The Crain family spends a considerable amount of time in a haunted house, away from the city, near the woods and they slowly realise all their demons lie in that house. How? Well, like I told you, it's not just a horror series. it's way more than that. When you grow up in a big family, you go through a lot of ups and downs. Some serious issues escalate, some serious traumas find their way to settle in, inside your mind but in time you learn to deal with these traumas through certain realisations and by facing them head on. But that wasn't the case here. And by here I mean within the series, inside Hill House. © FlanaganFilm Okay, let me explain how. *spoiler alert* . The Crain family moves in to a huge mansion called the Hill House, somewhere far away from civilisation. The house originally belonged to the Hill family, who'd died in different circumstances and they became the house, literally. There isn't much background thrown about them though. There's an elderly woman who was living there, who certainly died of a sickness and then there was a couple - Poppy and William Hill who'd met at an asylum and fallen in love and of course died at the house too. The story revolves around two timelines. One in which they show the Crain family living in the house as kids, being haunted by every nook and cranny of the house and the second timeline shows them all grown up, years later, living separately, still being haunted by their own ghosts, without realising it's all connected to their childhood in the house. © FlanaganFilm Despite all the hidden ghosts and the not-so hidden ones, not many are given a back-story and as viewers you have to imagine the best or the worst scenarios and that's what I did, while I deduced every little scene into a metaphor, for familial relationships in general. The five siblings Steven (Michiel Huisman), Shirley (Elizabeth Reaser), Theodora (Kate Seigal), and twins Nell and Luke (Victoria Pedretti & Oliver Jackson Cohen), grow up in the house as close as they can be with their parents Hugh (Timothy Hutton) and Olivia (CarlaGugino). Each one of them has a demon to fight and a ghost to let go off, while living in the house. But they're all in some sort of spatial denial about what they usually see. Except maybe Nellie, who sees a 'bent-neck-lady' often at night and freaks out and screams. Luke sees Willian Hill, who comes to look for his hat which is in Luke's possession. The rest have their fair share of visions and anomalies but the less they talk about it, the better they feel. © FlanaganFilm The second timeline is all of them dealing with what they should have talked about in the first place instead of suppressing it. Which is a clear indication of how families need to be more open with each other and not let anything find its way under the rug. © FlanaganFilm The timelines are almost intertwined because the grown up siblings find it hard to cope with normal life, while going through serious PTSD, having grown up in a house that magnified their life fears. Steven is a struggling author, who writes a book about the house, which is a mere narration of all the horror stories he heard from his siblings and while not penning down his own experiences in the house, since he kept everything in the realms of denial, when it came to him facing his demons. Luke is a drug addict, struggling to keep clean, while jumping from one rehab to another, Shirley tries to face her demons for having an extra marital affair and not telling her husband about it, Nell still sees the bent-neck-lady and believes she never left her side and has taken over her life in more ways than one and Theodora feels everything she touches and sometimes that makes her inept to connect with other people, most days. © FlanaganFilm The trauma lurks through grim shadows all their life, while they struggle to find themselves again, 20 years later and the only way to live a normal life is to confront the ghosts of the past, literally. Since their mother Olivia's suicide in the house, their father never lets them explore the real truth about why Olivia kills herself in the first place and the mystery only unfolds for the siblings when one of them-Nell, goes back to the house and kills herself too. The only way for them to come to terms with what happened and let everything go is to actually go back to the house, years later. And they do. Okay, no more spoilers, you need to watch it to know what really happens in the end. © FlanaganFilm While the series kept me upright, all night, with a really icky feeling in the pit of my stomach it also made me realise the latent message the show is trying to sublimely give out. The fact that we all live like the Crains, throughout our life and never confront our own demons when we should. We never lay out what's in our mind or what we see and what we defy, most days. That we don't listen when someone needs to be heard. And all these instances become something malicious in our own head and make us go through post traumatic strife all our life. It just seems like we're all living a post traumatic lifestyle and it's time to change that. The serious message the director Mike Flanagan is trying to deliver is that of solidarity within a family, to avoid fighting our ghosts from the past. The 'Red Room' for instance was a room in the house, which was called the 'heart' of the house. It was a room for everyone to recreate their solace and become one with the house again. We should do that as a family. Recreate and share our solace and misery with the ones we truly love and not let anything lurk in the shadows to actually let go of any sort of darkness, that inhibits our days while we're grown adults. While I loved the series, this is in no way a review but an interpretation of a subjective understanding of the show. The treatment of the series is top-notch and I couldn't help think about the hidden message time and again and write about it, to help people understand the creepy yet significant moral of story. Although, I am done watching the show and it really hasn't stopped hounding the pit of my stomach yet and once the feeling goes away, I might just watch it again!
  23. The internet has made many jokes about how 'Avengers: Infinity War' was the biggest crossover ever and we all really didn't know what was coming our way in the next one, 'Avengers 4'. Who would've thought that we would live to see a 'Thirteen Reasons Why' and 'Avengers' crossover? Reportedly, Katherine Langford, who plays Hannah Baker in the Netflix show is now a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has joined the cast of 'Avengers 4', with people now coming up with theories about what role she could be playing, because you know how Marvel fans are with all the fan theories. The biggest contender out of all the theories is that she could be playing the role of Kate Bishop, who is an archer in the comics. The character is supposed to be similar to that of Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner, actually in fact she's his protégé. With Marvel finally waking up and realizing the potential of female superheroes, it's quite plausible that they would add more kick ass female characters and that could by why Katherine's character could have been a last-minute addition. Moreover, with a solo Hawkeye movie in the works, it would make sense to introduce more characters related to him. It's great to see Katherine widening her choice in roles after her hit show but, fortunately or unfortunately, she will always be Hannah Baker for everyone and as expected, ever since the news of her being a part of MCU came, so did all the jokes about 'Thirteen Reasons Why'. Almost everyone made this joke, obviously.

  24. We usually find ways to keep ourselves young throughout our lives. We go through life finding the right elixir to make that happen, but what we don't realise is that, staying young has a lot to do with how young you feel and the things you do. But, most of the adrenaline comes from being with someone who is way younger and makes your ego feel good constantly. So, if you're dating a younger woman, or want to, it's a different kind of a rush. Apart from the supposed immaturity and the fact that she's way behind you in life lessons and goals, the younger one can absolutely help you cruise through life with a lot more fun and vitality than you'd expect otherwise. So, here's why it's not all that bad to date someone way younger to you: (1) She Will Always Keep Your Energy Levels In Check She's young and full of life. She'll never give you a dull day ever and keep you on your toes. Be it going out for drinks or taking a vacation together, she's going to make sure you go the whole hog and be as active as ever. (2) She's A Free Spirit & You're Her Inspiration Most women who date guys way older than them, look at them as an inspiration and someone they can take sound advice from. You don't have to treat her like a child because she's free-spirited and is trying to make it on her own. You just need to look out for her and respect her decisions. Just because you've done things a certain way in the past doesn't mean that she needs to do them as well. She will look at you for some good advice and that's all you need to give to her. (3) *** Is Liberating What do you get when a younger, feisty spirit and an old experienced spirit come together? Some really good ***! No kidding. You have the experience since you're older and she has the feistiness to give you one hell of a time in bed. Besides, she'll know everything new there is to know in *** and she won't say no to trying new things. So, maybe *** with her is transitional? (4) She's Only Going To Adapt & Grow Younger women have a zest for life and they'd do anything to achieve it. If she knows she's dating an older guy, she'll do everything in her power to keep him happy, including keeping his interests in mind and learning things for him, that he takes interest in. She may be fascinated by all that you love and will take a keen interest in it and only adapt and grow from there. You should do the same. (5) She'll Have A Stronger Desire Towards New Experiences She's still finding new ways to live life so if you ask her to share an experience of any sort with you, she'll be forever ready to. She surely doesn't want to leave a single experience out when it's with you and she'll be up for anything you suggest, provided it's fun. Dating younger women is a definite learning curve. You learn a lot about how to live your life without too many regrets and just have fun.
  25. 'Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4' is already out on the market right now and it has been ruling the sales charts ever since it was released. We reviewed the game in its current state and found it to be the best game in the franchise since 'Modern Warfare 2'. © Activision Black Ops 4 has a new game mode instead of a full single-player campaign, and it has been ruling the Battle Royale genre ever since it was released. Previously, the genre was dominated by 'Fortnite' and 'PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds' (PUBG), however, since COD Blops 4 released, there has been a gradual decrease in peak concurrent players on Steam for PUBG. This may be attributed to many reasons and we wanted to list out our reasons why people are jumping ships: 1. No Hackers © Youtubbe Activision as a publisher and Treyarch as a developer are very proactive when it comes to dealing with hackers. PUBG has a very poor reputation on PC and now on mobile, as the game is plagued with hackers that use aimbots to disfranchise players of quality experience. The lack of hackers in 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4' is making people jump ship for the better experience they've always wanted. We can't be sure of the future if whether Blops 4 Blackout may also face a similar problem, however, as of now, it stands supreme. 2. Better Gunplay © Youtubbe There's no denying every Call of Duty game has impeccable gunplay that cannot be matched by any other FPS out there. Even Battlefield is now trying to replicate Activision's dated engine for their upcoming game “Battlefield 5” PUBG, on the other hand, always had a very clunky feel to its shooting mechanics which could be a contributing factor to Blackout's success. 3. There Are More Players © Gamesbeat Call Of Duty has been the highest selling game year in and year out and no game has been able to challenge that feat until now. According to VentureBeat, fewer people are logging in to play PUBG on PC and it seems like the trend is not going to slow down any sooner. PUBG is also not available on PlayStation 4 which has a higher player base, as the game is currently exclusive to Xbox One. 4. Better Gameplay © YouTube We've already mentioned that the game has better gunplay, however, Call of Duty games tend to be smooth and refined when it comes to overall gameplay. There are fewer bugs, glitches and the movement is also smoother. The same cannot be said about PUBG as the game is still plagued with glitches that are yet to be fixed. 5. It's More Than Just Shooting People © YouTube Blackout also features one of the most iconic features from the franchise — perks. Special abilities can be added to your character when you pick up perks from the ground. For example, you can equip multiple abilities such as Dead Silence (to suppress your footstep sounds) and Awareness (makes enemy footsteps louder), Outlander (Take less damage and gives faster movement in circle collapse) and many others. This adds more flavour to the overall gameplay and how the game progresses towards the end of the round.
