  1. After his first short movie Mehsoos won the Silver Film of the Year award at Asia's largest filmmaking challenge, India Film Project 2019, Chand Mohammad spoke to MensXP about the film and shared some tips on short filmmaking. Chand has also edited and written the movie along with writer Saad Khan. The movie features Deepak Kalra in the lead role. © Instagram/Chand Mohammad Mehsoos shows us how even when you are at your lowest point, your loved ones will be by your side. “I was brainstorming ideas with my writer when he suggested to me the idea of Mehsoos which was about a person who wanted to travel and wander freely but couldn't because of his paralytic condition," explains Mohammad on how the idea struck him. But before we get into the nuances of making the film, here are 10 tips he had for all you aspiring filmmakers: 1 Keep a few ideas handy and ready which you know might just be perfect to shoot in the time frame you have. 2. Brainstorm for at least a couple of hours with your team because writing a fresh concept is the most important part of the film. 3. Write a story - be clear about what you want from your actors and what kind of location you're going to use. And have the script ready the next morning. 4. Share your script with your music director so that he/she can start working on it and in the meanwhile, you can start with shooting your movie as the whole packaging is pretty important. 5. Share your concept for visualization with your DOP and the actors as well. 6. Start shooting first thing in the morning. Try to complete your shoot as soon as possible. 7. Don't shoot in a hurry as it will affect your end product. Ensure that your filming is restricted to under 30 hours, so that you have the necessary time to edit perfectly. 8. Before editing, take a quick nap of around four hours to calm your head. If you're both the director and editor, you know what you're going to make, but if someone else is editing your film make sure the person is crystal clear about your vision or it will take time. 9. Try to complete the first cut as soon as possible and make sure the background score fits perfectly. If there are any changes, try to incorporate them in the first cut itself. 10. Make the graphics simultaneously while editing. The flow of the film is very important and you don't want your audience to skip anything at any time. So make sure your short film is intriguing enough to watch. © Instagram/Chand Mohammad Coming back to the filmmaker, Chand belongs to the small town Shahpur in Muzaffarnagar (UP). He started his career as a video editor and cinematographer in Delhi, before moving to Mumbai to work as a video producer and eventually a creative video producer. © Instagram/Chand Mohammad We all know how making a film is no cakewalk and elaborating on his challenges, Chand says, "I think keeping everyone on the same page on every process of the film was the biggest challenge because, on sets, everyone was confused about the idea as we were not shooting in a particular order." But he stuck with his conviction, "I was the only who knew what we were making because writing to editing a film in a small time frame is very difficult. But, I am glad everything worked out.” In case you're wondering where to catch his short film, here's a link to it:
  2. India versus Pakistan is one of the most talked about things about the ICC World Cup 2019. Based on the age-old rivalry between the two cricketing titans, people were hoping for a great match at Old Trafford, Manchester today and boy did the Indian batting order stay true to those expectations. Opening the Indian batting innings, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul did exceedingly well in scoring more than 100 runs and gave the Men in Blue a great start. Once Sharma was dismissed off a catch at the hands of Hasan Ali after scoring his fastest ODI ton (85 balls), it was time for the Indian skipper Virat Kohli to take over. Often regarded as one of the finest batsmen of the modern era, Kohli took over alright. During his innings against Sarfaraz Ahmed's men, the Delhi born was also able to score his 11,000th run, which made him the fastest cricketer in the world to reach that number (222 innings) in 54 fewer innings than Sachin Tendulkar, who previously held that record. #ViratKohli scores his 11,000th ODI run! He reaches the landmark in 54 fewer innings than anyone else ð pic.twitter.com/mebDOLJESs — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 16, 2019 However, the end to his record-breaking innings was probably one of the most bizarre ones. Short of 23 runs of scoring a century, the Indian captain declared himself out off a bouncer by Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir as he believed that the ball edged his bat and went into the hands of the wicket-keeper. The gesture of simply walking away, without even waiting for the umpire to give out the final decision does seem like good sportsman spirit. The only thing that was wrong in the whole episode was the fact that KOHLI WAS NOT OUT. Kohli gave away his wicket even when he wasn't out , nothing much just a gift from the father on father's day ð #KingKohli #FathersDay#IndiaVsPakistan pic.twitter.com/2NPGNGltwu — Prashant Kumar (@IamPrashantPk) June 16, 2019 That's right. Kohli walked away when he was not out and you can't blame the umpire, Bruce Oxenford, as he did not give declare him out. Later during the match, Kohli was seen in the dressing room with the bat in his hand. Judging by the looks of it, Kohli and MS Dhoni were testing the rigidity of the bat. Shaking and thumping the bat against a couch, the two cricketers might have found a small crack between the handle and the body of the bat which could have made a sound which might have led Kohli to believe that the ball touched the bat. Of course, this is a conjecture and no official statement has come from the cricketer or the team. Nonetheless, Kohli's fans were heartbroken: @Atheist_Krishna Kohli gave away his wicket even when he wasn't out , nothing much just a gift from the father on father's day ðð Akhir Baap Baap Hota Haið¤£ð#IndiaVsPakistan — Ritik chaturvedi (@ritikcha2rvedi) June 16, 2019 Virat Kohli walked off thinking he has nicked but reply suggests that he was not out...#CWC19 — #CWCUP2019 (@FaST_CricBuzz) June 16, 2019 Kohli introduced a new way of getting out - Voluntary Out — Bhavin mehta (@Bhavin25996297) June 16, 2019 Wasn't even a wicket.

He and India were incredibly unlucky... nevertheless a formidable total.

  3. Earlier this year, Guneet Monga's 'Period. End of Sentence' created history (both for the world and India) by winning the Best Documentary Short Subject at the Oscars 2019, and now, it looks like the 92nd Academy Awards too will be pretty much owned by India as another short film, 'Kamali', has qualified for the Oscars 2020. In fact, 'Kamali' recently won praises and the Best Documentary award at the Atlanta Film Festival. 'Kamali' is based on the life of Suganthi, a single mother from Tamil Nadu and how she strives each day to raise her 9-year-old skateboarder daughter. Facebook According to a report in The News Minute, Kamali's mentor Aine Edwards said. "When Suganthi (Kamali's mother) sees her children, she reflects on her childhood and how she could not do the things she wished to do because of the society. Today, she wants Kamali to taste the freedom she did not have." Aine further added, "The crew came and shot the film over six weeks. After it was edited, they even sent it to the Mumbai International Short Film Festival in December 2018, where it won Best Director Award." Twitter When asked about the awards the short film has won so far, Kamali's mother said, "I think this award is the biggest achievement of my life, only after my children, of course." For those of you who didn't know, 9-year-old Kamali Moorthy is the only girl skateboarder from Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu. She has reportedly, travelled across the country along with professional skateboarding teams to promote skateboarding as a sport. Kamali also dreams of becoming a professional surfer. The 24-minute short film, 'Kamali' is directed by Sasha Rainbow, a filmmaker from New Zealand. Let's hope that 'Kamali' wins an award at Oscars 2020 and makes sure that everyone across the globe knows how talented this little girl is and how her mother struggles each day to give her a better life.
  4. 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.
  5. Life is not a bed of roses for someone in love, and while people are ready to walk the extra mile for their lover, the gripping and tragic tale of Hamid Ansari's love story will give you an incredible perspective on just how much a human can possibly suffer in love. You have heard and probably read about the man who spent the last few years in Pakistan's jail, but what is his life story though? © Twitter Hamid was leading a normal life in India with his family when he met a girl on the internet. They connected and in no time, love blossomed between the two. They wanted to get married and Hamid was ready to commit with all his heart. His lover was from Pakistan and that did not deter his plans of uniting with her. Hamid then applied for a Visa to visit the country but while the wait took longer, his lover was being forced to marry someone else back home. Hamid met another guy online, became friends and then the guy promised to help him meet the girl and advised him to enter Pakistan from Afghanistan. Yes, that was illegal and a way paved with dangers unknown, but that did not stop Hamid. However, luck had other plans and it turned out that the 'friend' was not helping him but instead, got him arrested and thus began Hamid's nightmare. © Twitter He tried to explain to the authorities that his intentions were not malicious and that he was not a spy but things were already in motion against him. Hamid thought he was being swallowed into oblivion and while he longed to meet his parents, regret took over and he almost gave up on hope. In a recent interview, he revealed that he couldn't bathe for days, he was barely given food and the torture he endured was beyond the measures of what he could possible express. Years later, a string of lawyers and the determination of Sushma Swaraj ensured that justice was delayed but not denied to Hamid. Today, he was released and he entered his homeland after more than six years. He obviously cannot stop thanking Sushma Swaraj for her efforts and has a heart full of gratitude. #WATCH Indian National Hamid Ansari who came to India after being released from a Pakistan jail yesterday, meets External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in Delhi. His mother tells EAM "Mera Bharat mahaan, meri madam mahaan, sab madam ne hi kiya hai." pic.twitter.com/FQEzz99Ohm — ANI (@ANI) December 19, 2018 Hamid lost many years from his life but he is not going take this second lease of life for granted. Hamid now wants to find a job, get married and a have a family of his own. He's home! Delighted that #HamidAnsari has returned to his family this evening after six agonising years in Pakistani jails. @IndiainPakistan pic.twitter.com/KvvWTLM5Ao — Ajay Bisaria (@Ajaybis) December 18, 2018 Normalcy is what was lacking from his life and that is exactly what he wants now. When asked if he ever wondered what happened to the woman for whom he took this major step for, Hamid said that he found out that she was married and was well settled, and that is exactly what he craves for himself as well. Let's hope his life is full of light and hope from now onwards.

  7. Every bodybuilder you may see on bodybuilding websites, magazines, etc. advocates to spend hours and hours in the gym, 6 days per week, train one to two muscle groups every day to get muscular. A couple of things that you should understand before following them: 1. They are getting paid to advocate this and workout 6 days per week for 3 hours straight. 2. You cannot afford to do that. © YouTube You may be a college student or a working professional. You may have a job to go to on a regular basis or classes to attend. If you start going to the gym 6 days a week for 2 hours, it will negatively impact your job or college. Does this mean you cannot make gains? Absolutely NOT! To build muscle, you need: 1. To create a mechanical overload aka lift weights and get stronger. 2. Train your muscle groups 2 to 3x per week to build more muscle as a natural lifter. 3. Increase training volume with time. 4. Be consistent. Consistency trumps everything here. Essentially, you need a plan that promotes consistency and it fulfils the other factors. To do this with a busy schedule, you can start doing full body splits 3x per week. How Does A Full Body Split Work? A full body split is a workout where you train all the major muscle groups using compound exercises and throw in some accessory work. The compound exercises activate more muscle per unit time and give the added benefit of elevated muscle protein synthesis (MPS). © Pixabay A sample split would look like this: Day 1: Squat - 3 sets of 6 to 8 reps Romanian Deadlift - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Machine Chest Press - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Lat Pulldowns - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Farmers Walk - 3 sets of 50 meters Day 3: Bench Press - 3 sets of 6 to 8 reps Seated Rows - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Lunges - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Back Extensions - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Abs and Calves - 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps Day 5: Deadlifts - 3 sets of 6 to 8 reps Incline Press - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Lat Prayers - 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps Tricep pushdowns - 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps Bicep Curls - 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps Apart from the elevated muscle protein synthesis rates, the other benefits of a full body split are: 1. It saves time. 2. It helps you recover better. 3. It helps you build a good amount of muscle. 4. It increases the rate of fat loss by increasing energy expenditure. 5. It fits in your schedule. So, if you are short on time, have long working hours or have long study hours, stop listening to the competitive bodybuilder and program your training in a way that you can stick to and you make gains.

  8. Our brethren from the LGBTQ community had been silenced for the longest time, as the society continued to grapple with the possibility of (rightfully) acknowledging their realities and enabling them to speak about their experiences and expectations, the same way we discuss our weekend plans. Until a few weeks ago, talking about these experiences might have seemed like a far-fetched dream for most, but the recent amendment of Section 377 has opened newer avenues for people to come out (literally) and indulge in an active discourse around the myriad nuances that make the LGBTQ community. © Reuters Why Do We Need Pro-LGBTQ Terminology If some of you have been wondering about the usefulness of this “guide”, then allow us to elucidate. Human society sustains on language as a mode of interaction and expression, and this forms the basis of why we must be aware of the niche terminologies related to the LGBTQ people and use them appropriately in our interactions. © AP Disclaimer: It must be understood that meanings tend to undergo changes and evolve over time. Mentioned below are some of the most commonly used terms (from amongst a more wholesome well of lexicon), that the LGBTQ community uses to describe themselves and their experiences. We must be aware of the same and use them accurately and respectfully during conversations. Identity terms are often dodgy and though we have tried to do justice to their meanings, it must be known that we have no intention of offending or hurting anybody from the LGBTQ community who may feel it does not describe them or the idea perfectly. © AP Here are 27 terms you must include in your vocabulary: 1. Advocate An individual who actively strives to propagate social equality for the marginalised groups by raising awareness, in order to end intolerance towards them. 2. Agender A person who does not identify with the traditional concept of gender and/or sees themselves as existing without a gender. 3. Ally A person who possesses socio-economic privileges, understands its effects and challenges such as practices that make a section of our society less privileged. An ally supports and respects all the members of the LGBTQ community. © AP 4. Androgynous Used to describe an individual whose appearance and mannerisms merge both masculine and feminine traits which result in ambiguity. 5. Asexual Used to describe someone who does not experience sexual attraction towards others. Often confused with celibacy, asexuality is a sexual orientation whereas the former is a conscious choice. 6. Bicurious It is to be curious about one's attraction towards people of the same gender. © AP 7. Biological *** A medical term for classification of an individual as male, female or intersex, on the basis of their chromosomal, hormonal and anatomical characteristics. 8. Bisexual Someone who is romantically and sexually attracted to both men as well as women. 9. Butch An individual who sees themselves as the masculine partner in a relationship, be it physically, mentally or emotionally. © Reuters 10. Cisgender An individual whose gender identity is in alignment with his/her biological ***. 11. Closeted Someone who is not open to themselves or others about their sexuality or gender identity, either as a choice or out of fear. 12. Coming Out It is the process of accepting one's one's own sexuality or gender identity, to themselves as well as to others. © Reuters 13. Cross-Dresser An individual who dresses in the clothes of the opposite ***. 14. Femme An individual who sees themselves as the feminine partner in a relationship, physically, mentally or emotionally. 15. Gay (Mostly applied to men) Individuals who are primarily romantically or sexually attracted to members of the same ***. © AP 16. Gender-Fluid A gender identity which is a dynamic mix of a boy and a girl. A gender-fluid person may feel more manly one day and more womanly the other. 17. Gender Identity It is the internal perception of one's own gender, and how they wish to label themselves as per traditional gender alignment. 18. Genderqueer It is a gender identity label used by individuals who do not identify with the binary of man/woman. © AP 19. Lesbian Women who are romantically and sexually attracted to other women. 20. Openly Gay Somebody who identifies as lesbian or gay in their personal, public and/or professional lives. 21. Pansexual Someone who is sexually and romantically attracted to members of all gender identities. © AP 22. Queer An umbrella term to describe individuals who don't identify themselves as straight. 23. Sexual Orientation The type of sexual, romantic, spiritual attraction one feels for others, based on the gender relations between the person and the people they are attracted to. 24. Straight Used to refer to people who have a sexual and romantic attraction to individuals of the opposite gender. © Reuters 25. Transgender Someone who is a member of a gender other than that assigned at birth, based on anatomical ***. 26. Transman/Transwoman An identity label adopted by female-to-male or male-to-female transgender people to mean that they are men/women while affirming their history as assigned female/male *** at birth. 27. Transsexual a person who identifies psychologically as a gender other than the one to which they were born into. They often want to change their bodies to match their inner sense of gender.
  9. With the increased consumption of digital content, renowned and new filmmakers have brought a variety of short films which shall enthrall you in a very short span of time. Here is a look at some of the Hindi short films available on YouTube that are worth your time. Chutney Director: Jyoti Kapur Das Cast: Tisca Chopra, Adil Hussain, Rasika Duggal, Sumit Gulati This short film is as spicy and flavorsome as it gets with an unrecognizable Tisca Chopra, who is sharing gossips with Rasika Duggal over pakoras and thanda on her terrace. The short film which has garnered over 121 million views on YouTube is witty, dark and delicious. Jyoti Kapur Das presents this short film in a terrific way by opening up different layers to the story slowly and steadily. She intrigues her audience right from the beginning and one simply cannot wait for the mystery to unfold. Watch it for yourself and unlock the mystery. Juice Director: Neeraj Ghaywan Cast: Shefali Shah, Manish Prakash Chaudhuri With a terrific Shefali Shah playing a housewife in 'Juice', Neeraj Ghaywan (who has also directed 'Masaan') presents the ideology of male entitlement in the society. The story is set around a small gathering of husband's male friends who are enjoying snacks and discussing politics over booze and cigarettes while the women are cooking in the kitchen. It presents the idea of ingrained prejudice against women directly in the face of audience by segregating the gender role-play in a typical Indian society. It is interesting to see Shefali Shah emote beautifully through her eyes and the way she owns her character, Manju. The Schoolbag Director: Dheeraj Jindal Cast: Rasika Duggal, Sartaj Kakkar Set against the backdrop of Peshawar attacks of 2014, the film touches upon the act of terrorism and the innocent lives it costs. The film is about a heart-warming tale of a mother-son relationship on the eve of the son's birthday and the sudden turn of events in their life. Rasika Duggal is another powerhouse of talent and her work in short films like 'Chutney', 'The Schoolbag' and Zoya Akhtar directed 'Lust Stories' segment is testimony to it. Ahalya Director: Sujoy Ghosh Cast: Radhika Apte, Soumitra Chatterjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury Sujoy Ghosh directed 'Ahalya' gives us the feel of old mysterious short thrillers, which people used to read in newspapers or magazines. The film begins and ends at the same point leaving it open-ended and leaving some unanswered questions for the viewers. It leaves you intrigued while wanting for more. The Guest Director: Ayappa K. M. Cast: Shefali Shah, Davinder Madan Winner at the Mumbai Short Film Festival, 'The Guest' in its 8-minute run-time takes us through an unexpected journey of a young man, whose car breaks down in the mountains. As the film progresses, an unsettling eeriness creeps in the atmosphere and concludes leaving the film open to our wildest imaginations. Chhuri Director: Mansi Jain Cast: Tisca Chopra, Anurag Kashyap, Surveen Chawla Similar to the setting of extra-marrital affairs in 'Chutney', Tisca Chopra starrer 'Chhuri' is more direct and sharp like a knife. The film is about a cheating husband who finds excuses to meet her mistress while the wife manages the household. The twist in the tale is what happens when the wife already knows it. The most likeable part about this film is the quirky and clever take on the concept of extra-marrital affairs without resorting to melodrama or revenge saga.

With a host of celebrities flying off to Bangkok for a weekend-long IIFA celebration, Varun Dhawan was also part of the all-star gang and we caught him flying off to Bangkok in a rather Johnny Depp-inspired look. While his airport look maybe Depp-inspired, for his IIFA weekend in Bangkok, Varun put his best fashion foot forward. We bring you all the looks from his IIFA weekend and they are bound to make him your style icon. IIFA 2k18 day 1 @kunalrawaldstress A post shared by Varun Dhawan (@varundvn) on Jun 22, 2018 at 1:59am PDT For the first day of IIFA, Varun (seen sans his 'Sui-Dhaga' moustache) wore a light grey, round neck T-shirt with a pair of black shiny leather pants and black boots. He finished the look with a light brown denim-looking jacket. Styled by designer Kunal Rawal, Varun was all set to have a rather dope start to the weekend. © Viral Bhayani Snapped at an IIFA meet-and-greet event, Varun gave us college lad vibes wearing a Rocky T-shirt paired with white pants and black and white sneakers. He finished the look with a light blue and white striped shirt, worn as a jacket. Wearing an all-white outfit, Varun's T-shirt was the highlight of the look. IIFA ROCKS wearing @kunalrawaldstress A post shared by Varun Dhawan (@varundvn) on Jun 22, 2018 at 10:04am PDT For the IIFA Rocks event, Varun wore a Kunal Rawal creation with a monochrome long kurta with black trousers and black oxford shoes. The windowpane checkered black jacket finished the Indian black tie look. 489 Varun Dhawan at green carpet IIFA 2018 Awards in @kunalrawaldstress @varundvn #varundhawan #varundvn #veeria #bollywood #iifa #iifa2018 A post shared by V ð¸R U N D H A W A N (@officalvarundvn) on Jun 25, 2018 at 4:02am PDT After seeing all these outfits, we had high hopes for Varun's final day event. Keeping up with all our expectations, Varun went for a classic black-tie outfit. Seen wearing a black suit with a crisp white shirt, Varun looked dapper with a black bow tie. He finished the look with dark brown shoes. While we are still waiting for the show to air on-screen, Varun's dope-ass outfits have given us another reason to watch the show right from the red carpet moments!
  12. Whether you open your own startup or work for one, we don't think there's anyone content with their jobs. But, no matter where you work, we don't think it can be as worse an experience as the one Kalki Koechlin faces in her job. Flying Dreams Entertainment We are not talking about her movie career. It's about her latest short film, 'The Job' that revolves around a French expat (Kalki) whose inability to differentiate between reality and illusion start affecting her current job, as she struggles to stay employed. Flying Dreams Entertainment Kalki Koechlin is one of the most underrated and versatile actresses of this generation, and time and again she has proved the same with the kind of projects she picks. And 'The Job' is no different. Flying Dreams Entertainment Directed by Siddharth Sinha, 'The Job' is a commendable approach to an inexplicable psychological trauma that Kalki's character goes through, while maintaining an eerie and suspicious vibe throughout the film. Flying Dreams Entertainment Kalki does not have any dialogues in particular; in fact, she has none. But her hands and expression do the talking to express her nervousness, fear, traumatic memories, OCD and anxieties that have forever perplexed her mind. Sinha leaves the film open-ended, expecting the audience to come up with their own perspectives and opinions about the movie, and probably that's what makes it a hauntingly beautiful experience to watch it. Flying Dreams Entertainment Check out the short film for yourself and let us know what you think of it.
  13. If you haven't come across something soothing and romantic that instantly brings a huge smile to your face in the longest time, you've found yourself on the right page. Amidst all the bad and gloomy stuff going on around us, now comes a small nugget of unadulterated happiness in the form of a short romantic comedy film called #PuranaPyaar, made by Gorilla Shorts. They say, “You don't stop falling in love when you grow old, but you grow old when you stop falling in love”. And this film, makes exactly that point, in an adorable and hilarious way. It sure as hell made us laugh, cry and fall giddily in love, all at the same time. Starring veteran actors Mohan Agashe and Lillette Dubey, #PuranaPyaar is a new age love story, but of two oldies. The story revolves around Dev Pratap Singh, a widower who runs away from an old age home with another resident, a divorced lady called Mrs Sharma, and takes her to the beautiful mountain town he grew up in. But while he is completely besotted with her, she's still not totally sure about the whole thing. And then begins the cutest courtship saga that you'd have seen in a long time, with Dr Agashe trying to woo the stunning Ms Dubey like a love-struck teenager. There is laughter, love, beauty and even a little hanky panky as their relationship flowers. But it's not just all lovey-dovey. There's a devilishly delicious twist in the tale when the couple goes to his old school reunion. Don't take our word for it, watch it yourself to find out. At its heart though, the film is about the loneliness that our senior citizens feel and their need for companionship and love in the twilight years of their lives. But it's the story, the acting and the treatment that really stand out in the film. The cinematography, music and the spectacular locations in the mountains all add to the feels. They've even shot at the prestigious Doon School! No wonder then, that the comments under the film are full of people expressing their love and claiming that the film was like a breath of fresh air in their lives. And of course, Mohan Agashe and Lillete Dubey's performance has been hugely appreciated. This film is in fact, the fifth and last story of the hit web series called LoveHandles, running on Gorilla Shorts, a new and fast-growing YouTube Channel. The other stories of LoveHandles titled #AshleelPyaar, #ChoriChoriPyaar, #SilentPyaar and #GudGudWalaPyaar are all equally mad and quirky takes on love and have all become hugely popular. Do check them out and you can even subscribe to Gorilla Shorts by clicking right here. And while you are at it, don't forget to check out the beautiful background song of the film in the melodious voice of Suresh Wadkar. Trust me, after listening to it, you'll want to add this soothing track to your playlist right away!
  14. Team Costa Rica had acquired the nickname 'The Gold Shorties' in the late forties and they have been regular at making their presence felt at all important football tournaments. Their expedition through the 2018 World Cup qualifying phase has had its fair share of ups and downs. Looking at the erratic performance the team has shown in the 2018 qualifiers, critics say that Costa Rica seems to have lost that golden touch they exhibited in Brazil 2014 and that their “golden generation” has already seen its best years pass. For 2018, the team qualified by beating USA and Trinidad & Tobago who were not competitive enough to reach even the play-offs. History With its long standing football culture and tradition, Costa Rica is unarguably a strong national football team that has had a lineage in the history of Central America. In the list of its achievements are three CONCACAF Championships (1963, 1969 and 1989) and a reputation of leading the pack with an impressive eight championships in the Copa Centroamericana. With an all-time highest Elo ranking in Central America, Costa Rica has the distinction of playing in four FIFA World Cup editions. Source: Reuters Finishing first in a group of all former World Cup champions-Uruguay, Italy, and England in 2014 would be remembered as Costa Rica's best performance in history. Current Form Undoubtedly, Costa Rica has had a superb start to the final qualifying round after beating Trinidad & Tobago (2-0) and USA (4-0). But apart from these two victories, defeat against Mexico and a draw with Honduras turned out to be a dampener on their winning streak. Placed in Group E, Costa Rica will play their first game against Serbia on followed by Brazil five days later, and finally with Switzerland five days after that. The talented midfielder Oscar Ramírez, aged 52, who was part of the Costa Rica squad that secured a place in the knockout stages at Italia 90, is now at the helm of the team's affairs as their coach. Source: Reuters Team Costa Rica is to a large extent, a repeat of the squad that made the world sit up and take notice at Brazil in 2014. Prominent names include Giancarlo Gonzalez, Oscar Duarte, Celso Borges, Yeltsin Tejeda, Christian Bolanos and Marcos Urena. Among these are also European-based stars such as Keylor Navas, Bryan Ruiz and Joel Campbell. Keeping in mind their poor performance in friendlies against Spain and Hungary, the team should improve upon their faults in formation and coordination. Expectations Being in the best of form is a concern with Joel Campbell and Bryan Ruiz owing to their injuries. It is expected that players such as Jimmy Marin, Randall Leal and Gerson Torres, all aged 20, would reverse the run of bad form. It could be expected that Costa Rica qualify for the knockout stage in second place behind Brazil. They have to focus on scoring really well in their matches against Serbia and Switzerland. Costa Rica will be one of the few teams that rely on five at the back, so that the goal defended by their star player, Keylor Navas gets full cover. Source: Reuters Costa Rica World Cup Squad GOALKEEPERS: Keylor Navas (Real Madrid), Patrick Pemberton (Liga Deportiva Alajuelense), Leonel Moreira (Herediano). DEFENDERS: Cristian Gamboa (Celtic), Ian Smith (Norrkoping), Ronald Matarrita (New York City), Bryan Oviedo (Sunderland), Oscar Duarte (Espanyol), Giancarlo Gonzalez (Bologna), Francisco Calvo (Minnesota United), Kendall Waston (Vancouver Whitecaps), Johnny Acosta (Aguilas Dorados). MIDFIELDERS: David Guzman (Portland Timbers), Yeltsin Tejeda (Lausanne-Sport), Celso Borges (Deportivo La Coruna), Randall Azofeifa (Herediano), Rodney Wallace (New York City), Bryan Ruiz (Sporting Lisbon), Daniel Colindres, Christian Bolanos (both Saprissa). FORWARDS: Johan Venegas (Saprissa), Joel Campbell (Real Betis), Marco Urena (Los Angeles FC).

  18. Gulshan Grover was one of the most important Bollywood villains in the 90's. If it wasn't for him, our childhood movie memories would have taken a different turn altogether. Thanks to him and only him, we got the privilege to watch some of the most interesting and twisted characters onscreen. © Twitter And now, coming back in action after a long gap, he has set his foot in the world of International cinema and people are totally in awe of him. It's been quite a while since we last saw him in a Bollywood movie but he has finally made a comeback with a short film. © Twitter The talented actor was recently seen in a short movie 'Forbidden'. This dramatic thriller opened to a full house at many international film festivals. The movie traces the journey of a Sikh woman who is in love with a Muslim man. She is left with two choices, either to run away with her love or be the victim of honour killing by her own family. Inspired by a true story, the movie sheds light on honour killings prevalent in many societies. © Twitter Grover is seen playing the important role of 'Papaji' and his powerful acting has left international viewers spellbound. Written and directed by Vibha Gulati, the movie stars Gulshan Grover, Salony Luthra, Gopal Divan, and Dhanish Karthik. © Twitter The impactful and moving trailer will definitely pique your interest. Even though the subject, which is forbidden love, is not a novel idea, but the manner in which it is portrayed is hauntingly beautiful. © Twitter The movie's focus is on how loving someone from a different religion is forbidden and brings dishonour to one's family. And your bravest move could be the one wrong turn, which will change your life forever. Imagine when your own family, the ones you love, are the very people aiming to destroy you. Check out the trailer now: The movie was premiered at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival and the New York International Film Festival. And people loved the subject so much that it got a standing ovation. © Twitter Speaking to a leading blog, director Vibha Gulati said, "This film is a heartfelt tribute to my amazing friend who had the courage and the conviction to follow her heart and stand up to her family."
  19. Nawabs can carry anything off - they say. And we kind of believe this because our very own Chhote Nawab, Mr Saif Ali Khan, has proved it time and again. He can wear the most unexpected outfits and make them work. Don't believe us? We have proof. He was just spotted wearing the shortest pair of shorts we have seen. They are orange and they are really short. But did they look weird on him? Nope. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani We actually like the pairing of orange shorts with that baby blue t-shirt. Perfect summer combo we say. Did you notice his footwear? Who'd have thought of wearing a pair of 'Nawabi' AF jootis with a pair of short-shorts and a t-shirt? An actual Nawab, that's who. © Viral Bhayani The shorts say 'Holl', which we suspect may be the result of some Nawabi scissor action on a pair of sweatpants that actually said 'Hollywood', or may be even, if we may take the liberty to go that far, 'Hollister'? Just a harmless conjecture tbh. All we can say is that they look super comfortable. © Viral Bhayani Also, Saif has clearly been coordinating his outfits with Taimur, even when they are going to different places. Look at what Khan Junior was spotted wearing, earlier that day. © Viral Bhayani At the risk of having to punch a wall to feel manly again, we can't help but say 'Aww' here. This right here is adorable. If dad-son fashion goals were a thing, this duo right here would embody it better than anyone we know.

  21. Love a good scare? Then great, this list is meant for you. If you don't have a Saturday night plan like many of us sitting in bed and deciding between pizza or dal for dinner, then I suggest you browse through this and catch up for a good adrenaline scare in bed. Also, these are Youtube horror movies which are short and scary at the same time so don't fuss over your wifi for downloading any of these: 1. The Little Witch- This one is based on an Irish classic tale where a man tries to put his daughter to bed but ends up seeing something shocking. 2. Vicious- Ever wondered what might happen if you came back home and your front door was open? This spooky movie follows a woman who tries to find what is lurking inside her house. 3. Alexia- Inspired by a horror Japanese tale, this short movie follows a man who is still alive in the memories of his girlfriend. 4. The Smiling Man- This one is based on a story titled 'Let's Not Meet' and the story follows a man who is being followed himself. 5. Hi- This is a 'desi' horror short flick which might intimidate you to no end. 6. Alma- If you thought Pixar only did 'feel good' movies, this will change your perception. 7. Mama- A horror movie that depicts a mom as the centre of a horror movie? Yes, please.
  22. Fact: fashion is for everyone. And whether you're a little short in height (or maybe even not), the truth is — you can look your best too. However, there are a few guidelines to adhere to: always invest in apparel that lengthens your height, provides a streamlined approach to one's view and doesn't make you appear stout or too short. If you're not as tall as Khali, unfortunately, you've also got to keep your tailor handy (alteration is key). Though, there's a drill to owning style as a short man, it's not a Herculean task either. For today, to save your day, we've compiled a list of 7 products online right now under Rs 999 that'll give an illusion of a taller-you. 1. Fugazee's Killa Longline Shirt © Amazon India Playing with proportions is Rule #1 of height-appropriate dressing. And the case isn't any different for short men. In fact, a longline shirt (a shirt, slightly longer than usual) is a must-have product for men who're short. It adds the illusion of a few extra inches to your height, but only if paired right. Always opt for slim-fit bottoms (not billowy at all) to derive the best out of this longer-than-usual piece. Price: Rs. 899 Buy it here 2. Bewakoof Men's Longline Pocket Cotton T-Shirt © Amazon India Not a fan of shirts? We got your back. Following the same theory in #1, invest in a grey longline t-shirt with contrast pockets. For one, the play with apparel lengths will anyway make you appear taller and two, for short men, it's suggested that they stick to solid-coloured apparel (you don't want a break in vision making you appear shorter than usual). Plus, since dark colours tend to elongate your frame, we'd suggest you go all monotone here. Price: Rs. 449 Buy it here 3. Bond Street by Red Tape Men's Formal Shoes © Amazon India A pair of formal dress shoes (with a slight heel for elevation) is a go-to product for short men. While you're going to look classic and dapper anyway, the heel of the shoes is going to help you in appearing as your height, if not taller. Remember to end your trousers right above the ankle. Don't bundle the fabric up. Price: Rs. 999 Buy it here 4. Richard Parker by Pantaloons Men's Poly Viscose Trousers © Amazon India No matter what, you need to own a pair of slim-fit trousers. A pair, that ends right at the ankle (or just above it), gives you a slimming appearance (don't stick to your skin) and doesn't bundle up in any area. Plus, look for plain cotton weaves; nothing textured/ribbed. And remember, your tailor's only a call away. Price: Rs. 799 Buy it here 5. Cotson Odour-Free Men's Formal Socks © Amazon India Socks are almost like an everyday business, so how do short men use them to look taller? We'd suggest, you match the colour of your trousers with your socks, to lend a linear view to one's sight, instead of wearing quirky socks and fragmenting your area around your feet. Avoid doing the latter completely. Price: Rs. 299 Buy it here 6. Lino Perros Men's Printed Tie © Amazon India Pinstripes always work for men. And ecstatically, for short men too. If you're eyeing the idea of devastating increase in length at the boardroom, suggest you turn to neckties like these. Keep them neither too thick, nor too skinny. Just thin enough for appropriate corporate behaviour. Price: Rs. 518 Buy it here 7. Ether Men White Regular-Fit Striped Casual Shirt © Amazon India As we mentioned earlier, stripes tend to elongate your body height, to make you look visually taller. This plain, simple pinstriped shirt is going to do exactly that for you. As a matter of fact, this is also one of the most important pieces to own for short men. Pair with dark-coloured chinos for best results. Price: Rs. 519 Buy it here
  23. I don't think I am the only who seems to have cracked the cheat code that Hollywood directors are using to make their movies a box-office hit. Just like 2017, the first half of 2018 too seems to be looming heavily on two genres primarily – superheroes and horror. And 'Your Date Is Here' is the latest addition to the already heavy and rich list of horror movies. © new line cinema Board games were possibly one of the best pastime activities we played in our growing years. In fact, even today some of us love to play board games and jump up and down in excitement like a kid, every time we get a six on the dice. But, imagine if that same board game makes you squeamish and turns out to be your biggest nightmare? And on top of that makes you wish to stay single for your entire lifetime. Directors Todd Spence and Zak White show you exactly how it feels, in a matter of six-minutes. The original 'Jumanji' has got nothing on this movie, which takes playing board games to a whole new level. And it's weirder than playing with a Ouija board. And after watching, trust me, the next time someone tells you 'Your Date Is Here'; you will probably run in the opposite direction. Despite being 6-minutes short, this movie gives enough time to the viewers to get Goosebumps and think of all sorts of bizarre endings possible, as they inch closer to the climax. Like that sudden bang on the door or that creepy voice on the line that only the little girl could hear initially; it was a good start to a scary journey that ended abruptly. Honestly, I have seen movies scarier than this so it didn't have that kind of an impact, but as I scrolled through the comment section of the video, I realized there were many who were sh*t scared by the end of the movie. But, overall, this movie is definitely worth giving a shot. Let us know if your blood curdled by the end of the movie. If not, then I will come back with a movie that's scarier than Ari Aster's 'Hereditary' or Stephen King's 'IT', which will either give you sleepless nights or hauntingly eerie nightmares.
  24. When it comes to bringing a beautiful story to life, there is no one better than Imtiaz Ali who can do that job effortlessly. He is a master of storytelling and has now come up with a new short film that literally connects to you. 'The Other Way' traces a journey of decision making and how often we are left confused. The story brings you Rewa (Shreya Chaudhry), a bride-to-be who is confused and starts questioning everything just hours before her wedding. The narration starts with a non-linear pattern, as the movie talks about our deepest fear. Rewa is just moments away from getting married to her longtime boyfriend but somewhere she fears what if she gets bored once they are hitched? What if things are no longer the same? © YouTube Maybe not the same, but similar incidents do take place in our lives and that's the reason why you end up liking Imtiaz's way of portraying a story, that many of us can relate to. What would you do when you are confused? Talk to someone you are very close to right? But Rewa finds comfort in a total stranger Arjun (Pavel Gulati), who is the photographer. Ali's dialogue and voiceover play a very vital role, as he hooks you to the screen within seconds. It's not that you can't sense what's about to happen, but Ali brilliantly makes sure you don't leave your seat and watch this 14-minute story. Shreya Chaudhary is high-spirited like Rewa and her eyes often deliver her emotions without words leaving her mouth. Pavel impresses you as well. Imtiaz Ali's short film is worth a watch and you shouldn't miss it. P.S. If 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' made you lose your faith in Imtiaz, this might restore it once again!
  25. Karan Tacker might be multi-gunned, supremely-successful actor now, but let's be clear — he's been like that right from the start. Ever since his foray into the industry, he's known to balance work life + style, only to establish his own celebrity-brand. And well, he's never looked back at all. He wears some terrific outfits, paired impeccably, all without being committed to expensive designer threads. Hence, his recent airport outfit for us isn't a biggie at all. But what's to notice about this outfit, however, is its play with apparel proportions. Because really, and we're not citing a fault here, but Tacker's not the tallest out there. That said, with his knack for wearing flattering menswear, he is definitely worth a follow for men who're maybe a little close to his height (or even shorter). Here are 3 things to keep in mind: © Viral Bhayani 1. If you're not down for longline T-shirts yet, think twice. Or, slip into one to enter a whole new world. With just a slight stretch in their length, longline T-shirts can create the illusion of a lengthened body frame. Isn't that what you're looking for? 2. But as they say, there's not just one rule of wearing a piece. Longline T-shirts aren't any different in this aspect. Ensure, the jacket (or denim jacket in Karan's case) is longer than the tee. But not too long. Restrict the length of your layering piece to maybe a few inches lower and that's all you'd probably need. Never let it go shorter than the T-shirt. © Viral Bhayani 3. Ankle-length boots can really be a boon sometimes. But, remember to neatly tuck your jeans/trousers into them or stick to a simple fold. Or really, just crop them appropriately. Loose jeans over ankle-length footwear is basically a pathway to looking even short. Avoid that. © Viral Bhayani All in all, nail your fits. They're key to doing fashion the right way, anyway.
