  1. Known as the Father of the Indian space program, Dr Vikram Sarabhai is a name that is written in the pages of history as one of India’s leading pioneers who strived hard to veer Independent India towards a self-reliant, curious and innovation-friendly tomorrow. Dr Vikram Sarabhai is by far one of the most notable physicists, industrialists and institute-founders India has seen. Given his love for the space and cosmos, sports, statistics and even the arts, Vikram Sarabhai used his vision and resources to establish some of India’s most distinguished institutes. Dr Vikram Sarabhai is credited with setting up 35 institutes and entities during his lifetime and here are 5 of the most path-breaking institutions he pioneered which changed the face of India and put us on a global platform. 1. PRL - Physical Research Laboratory © Twitter satyakumar_y Often called the ‘Cradle of Space Sciences’ in India, PRL is said to have been a brainchild of Vikram Sarabhai who conceptualised it at the age of 23 while he was still studying in the UK. It was set up in 1947 at Sarabhai’s residence with research on cosmic rays. It was later formally established at the MG Science Institute in Ahmedabad. Today, the laboratory offers research programmes in astronomy, astrophysics, atmospheric sciences and aeronomy, Earth sciences, Solar System studies as well as theoretical physics. 2. ISRO - Indian Space Research Organisation © ISRO It was the launch of Russia’s Sputnik satellite which convinced Sarabhai that India needed a space agency of its own as well. He proposed the idea to the Indian government and convinced them to start the Indian National Committee for Space Research (Incospar) programme. It was his vision and commitment to the cause that gave India its first space research organisation, which was later renamed as ISRO. Vikram Sarabhai, not only identified the importance of space technology in our nation’s development, but also guided ISRO on its mission to provide India with space-based services and develop the technologies to achieve the same independently. Today, ISRO is one of the six largest space agencies in the world. 3. IIM-A - Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad © Twitter satyakipatil Touted to be the most popular and sought after business school in India, IIM-A was the product of Vikram Sarabhai’s another measure to promote growth, self-reliance and grassroot development in the private sector. Established in 1961, it was the second IIM to come up on Indian soil with Vikram Sarabhai as the first Director of the institute. Set up with a vision to model committed management cadre for the nation, this is one of his greatest legacies to the country. 4. VSSC - Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre © Twitter RakshaRamaiah Known as a major space research centre of ISRO, VSSC focuses on rocket and space vehicles for India's satellite programme. Located in Thiruvananthapuram, it was initially known as the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) but was renamed after its founder Dr. Vikram Sarabhai. he Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre is one of the main research and development establishments within ISRO. 5. IGCAR - Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research © Twitter youdle One of the country’s premier nuclear research centres, IGCAR was established in 1971 under the aegis of Vikram Sarabhai. It is a dedicated centre that works exclusively for the pursuit of fast reactor science and technology. Initially it was called the Reactor Research Centre (RRC) but was later renamed as Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) by former Indian PM Rajiv Gandhi. The centre is engaged in a broad-based multidisciplinary programme of scientific research and advanced engineering directed towards the development of Fast Breeder Reactor technology in India.

  2. If you’ve ever wondered how far we’ve come when it comes to mobile phones, we would like to take you back to 1973. It was the time when Motorola showcased the first mobile phone of the world that weighed 2 Kilograms and was bigger than any phone we’ve used in recent memory. While this phone was still a prototype, it was used to demonstrate cellular technology almost 47 years ago. © Wikipedia Commons Due to the development of large-scale integration (LSI) technology and metal-oxide semiconductors; it led to the development of the world’s first affordable mobile communications device. While the first commercially available mobile phone didn’t arrive before 1984; the first-ever mobile device was shown by Martin Cooper of Motorola almost eleven years before. The company later released the world’s first commercially available handled cellular phone called the Motorola DynaTac 8000x. It was a more refined version of the prototype that weighed considerably less and was a bit smaller as well. The refined version weighed around 790 g which is still quite heavy and unwieldy by today’s standard. © Wikipedia Commons To put things into perspective, the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x is still considerably large when compared to phones today. The phone was also quite expensive as it retailed for $3,995 ($9,831 in today’s money) at the time and was not considered a mass-market item in 1983. The phone was powered by a lithium-ion battery, something we still use today in our smartphones. The phone was also used to place the first commercial wireless call as David D. Meilahn called Bob Barnett, former president of Ameritech Mobile Communications from his 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL. © Motorola Legacy Archives While we may consider the phone to be extremely bulky today and quite unwieldy; the phone was considered to be revolutionary at the time. Mobile telephones were limited to cars or heavy briefcases at the time and the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x was the first true wireless handheld mobile phone. The phone also did not need any assistance from a mobile operator and users could directly call people if they knew the number. The phone was extremely popular as well and Motorola couldn’t make them fast enough to meet the demand. The phone wasn’t really made for teenagers and somewhat became a necessity for business owners that led to this phone’s success. © Motorola Legacy Archives The DynaTAC series phones are all but obsolete today as it used analogue networks or AMPS which are not used by network providers. The phone has now become more of a collector’s item for enthusiasts. What do you think about the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x and would you be able to use it today? Let us know in the comment what you think about the godfather of every mobile phone that followed. View the full article
  3. Kartik Aaryan is an outsider who has now become a well-known Bollywood actor and filmmakers like Imtiaz Ali and Karan Johar have placed their bets on him. He struggled during his initial years when he came to Mumbai and many auditions later he got Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama in 2011. His journey in Bollywood is one to be looked upon and he has only done a handful of movies in and he is getting his due with each passing film. He is one actor who cut through dynasty and discrimination to carve his success in the industry. So, here are 5 Kartik Aaryan movies that define his career in Bollywood- Pyaar Ka Punchnama Pyaar Ka Punchnama is a Luv Ranjan directorial and a romantic comedy that won people’s hearts. The movie starred Kartik Aaryan, Raayo S. Bakhirta, Divyendu Sharma, Sonnalli Seygall, Nushrat Bharucha, and Ishita Raj Sharma in the film. The film’s storyline revolves around three bachelors and their love life. The film was a hit and was able to capture decent numbers at the box-office. Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 This film was also directed by Luv Ranjan and the storyline of the film was similar to the lines of the first part. But this time this romantic comedy was something that the audience was looking forward to. This film made everyone notice Kartik Aaryan and that’s how his journey of stardom started playing a role. Also, part 2 performed better on the box-office and Kartik Aaryan won millions of hearts. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety Now, we all want a best-friend like Sonu who’d care so much for us and pull us out of all problems. Also, the comic timing of the character in the film is entertaining to an extent that even if some scenes don’t make sense, you’ll still have a good time.

Pati Patni Aur Woh The film stars Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, and Ananya Panday in the lead role.

  4. On 14th June, we all were relaxing as it was a Sunday but everything changed when the news started to flash that Sushant Singh Rajput is no more and the reason stated was that he died by suicide. We were numb and hundreds of questions started to bother us when his last pictures surfaced on the internet. His case was more complicated than it looked like and there were set of revelations that were to come in light. The fans and well-wishers flooded the social media platforms and questioned if he was murdered because pictures of his deceased body told a different tale than it was being presented on the TV. For those who have met him, they were unable to wrap their heads around the whole theory of suicide but it looked like a well-planned murder. On YouTube, some forensic experts started to do the virtual autopsy and claimed that he was brutally beaten up before being choked to death. In no time, people started to ask for justice for Sushant Singh Rajput and it’s more than 50 days, there’s no development in the direction of finding the truth. When Sushant’s father filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, the whole narrative of the case changed, and here’s when news channels swung into action and since then, there have been some very shocking revelations. We are sharing with you the 10 most shocking claims that came out in his case and it might change your perspective to see it. 1. As per a report in Mid-Day, a forensic surgeon, on the condition of anonymity, told the tabloid that the forensic surgeons who had done the autopsy on Sushant may not have collected the crucial finger swabs and nail clippings. The report quoted a forensic surgeon saying, “This swab could have indicated if dust particles from the ceiling fan were present on Sushant's fingers. This would have cleared the ambiguity over foul play. The dust particles would have been on the cloth used for hanging, on the ceiling fan and fingertips. The type of dust particles on all would have offered a clue. Even if the fingertips did not have dust, the cloth and fan would surely have had.” The forensic surgeon told the daily, “The forensic surgeons/scientists could have asked to take specific fingerprints, which a fingerprint expert may miss out on as every crime scene is different. An analysis of the same by a forensic surgeon and forensic scientist usually helps gather more evidence.” 2. Sushant Singh Rajput's family's appointed lawyer Vikas Singh, in an interview with Pinkvilla, had made some shocking revelations about Rhea Chakraborty. Well, she claimed that Sushant’s sister Priyanka Singh molested her at a party. Rhea invited Sushant and Priyanka to her brother Showick Chakraborty's birthday party. It was on 20th April that Sushant and his sister were at the party and things got ugly when Rhea allegedly told him that his sister took advantage of her. The lawyer said, “Rhea told Sushant the earlier night, after the birthday party, that his sister Priyanka tried to take advantage of her and molest her on the intervening night of 18-19th April at Sushant’s residence, Sushant believed Rhea and had an altercation with his sister Priyanka and Priyanka couldn't even believe that Sushant would get manipulated this way but she wanted peace and vacated the apartment. Once she reached Delhi and told her husband about it, her husband told her that what happened was not correct as he was also there on the intervening night of 18-19th April 2019 and reasoned it out with Sushant directly through WhatsApp messages but Sushant wasn't ready to listen." Eventually, he did come back to realize that Rhea manipulated to create a rift between the siblings. 3. Rhea Chakraborty and the family left their building right after the Bihar Government sent the officials to investigate her. She was not available and the Bihar police also added their motive is not to punish any innocent. “If Rhea has not done anything wrong then she should stop playing hide-and-seek with the police and come forward to clarify the things," the Bihar Police said. 4. Sushant’s former cook Ashok said the actor hardly took any medicine when he was working there. It was after the Europe trip, that things started to change. Ashok was asked not to continue and wasn’t given any concrete reason for that. "I was working as a cook in Sushant's house and I am a chef. I worked for three-four years with him up till September 2019. Everything seemed fine till I was working there, neither did I see him taking any medicine during that time. I don't know what happened afterward," Ashok told ANI. He added, “Sushant was in touch with his family till the time I was working. Even I spoke to his family members on some occasions when they used to call him. He was a strong man and how can he be depressed?" 5. The theory behind who saw him hanging is also very shady because there are different versions of it. Sidharth Pithani said he was the first one to see the body hanging and the cook also claimed the same thing. Yesterday, Sidharth Pithani, in an interview with Times Now said that he asked the key-maker to go and check who first found him hanging. He kept changing his statements every 5 minutes in the interview. He also added that he physically cut the cloth and brought down his body after his ‘jiju’ asked him but the family has denied all his claims. Then, he said the key makers were asked to leave just after they opened the door. 6. His conflicting statements in the interview made it sure that he is hiding a lot of things. He earlier said that he didn’t witness any fight between Rhea and Sushant and then went on to claim he knew about their troubled relationship. He had earlier said that he had professional ties with Sushant but then claimed that he left his job to be by the actor’s side. He said that he wasn’t aware of the fact that Rhea was handling expenses and then claimed that he had informed the family about the expenses. He also admitted that he did give medicines to him but only recalled one of the names. Here’s the interview. 7. Sushant’s former close aide Ankit Acharya told that the actor never slept with locked doors. He also claimed that he too was asked to leave and he went later to see Sushant, he was not allowed to meet him. He also revealed that he got to know that a different kind of ‘Pooja’ happened at home. He also said that Rhea used to party on his expenses. Sushant’s bodyguard also claimed that Rhea did ask him to get the medicines for the actor. 8. Sushant’s friend on the basis of anonymity told Republic that the actor had told him about Sandip Ssingh and he knows everything but the friend also added Ssingh is a mysterious character because he is twisting statements. He also said that Bollywood biggies are somewhere connected. 9. Sushant’s family friend Smita also revealed that Disha Salian’s death did upset him and he was scared. He kept telling his sister that they won’t leave me. He was very anxious but he wasn’t depressed. Bihar DGP also agreed that both the deaths are linked. 10. Sandip Ssingh claimed on TV that it was only one ambulance that came but the videos claim otherwise. There were three ambulances on the premises. There are more such revelations but for us, these 10 were too big and would change your perspective of seeing his death because it's way more complicated than it looks like. We sincerely hope that the truth prevails and justice is served. View the full article

All concerned have to file their replies in the meantime. State of Maharashtra is directed to place all the investigation steps taken in the case before the SC. We are satisfied with the outcome of the hearing. In view of the pendency of the proceedings in SC Rhea or anyone on her behalf refrains from making any comments in the case."

  7. Pankaj Tripathi made his Bollywood debut in the year 2004 with a minor role in the movie Run. He is an actor par excellence who has proved his mettle as a versatile actor in many impactful roles over the years. His turning point in his cinema career was his power-packed performance in Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur that showcased his acting prowess. Since then there was no turning back. Adding one more feather to his hat, Tripathi even won the National Film Award – Special Mention for his role in Rajkummar Rao starrer Newton that was India's official entry to the Oscars. Here we have curated a list of some of the lesser-known impactful performances of Pankaj Tripathi over the years that made him the star that he is today. 1. Mithya © pankaj tripathi The 2008 film Mithya featured Ranveer Shorey and Naseeruddin Shah in lead roles. Creating a niche audience for itself, the film had a unique take on the famous Don story (that originally starred Amitabh Bachchan and was recreated with Shah Rukh Khan). Pankaj Tripathi had a small role to play in the film, yet he managed to prove his mettle as an actor par excellence, even while sharing screen space with seasoned actors like Saurabh Shukla, Harsh Chayya, and Vinay Pathak among others. 2. Dharm © Netflix This 2007 film starred Supriya Pathak and Pankaj Tripathi (in a supporting role as Suryaprakash). Dharm garnered a lot of critical appreciation and received a National Film Award for the best feature film on national integration. The movie was helmed by debutant Bhavna Talwar who courageously questioned the true meaning of religion through the film. You can stream it on Netflix. 3. Gurgaon © Netflix Another finest example of Pankaj Tripathi's innate talent is Gurgaon. The film is actually a testament to his talent as an actor, that despite playing characters that appear similar on paper, his performance on screen never feels repetitive. In this film, Pankaj completely internalized the character's emotions and gave a restrained performance as the real estate tycoon whose daughter gets kidnapped. You can watch this too on Netflix. 4. Powder © Yash Raj Films No one can forget his strong performance as the crime lord in popular film Gangs of Wasseypur. However, did you know Pankaj Tripathi played this role for the first ever time in Powder that showcased his acting prowess? As Naved, Tripathi's performance was layered, and he managed to create a villain that people were scared of and yet unwittingly sympathized with. If you haven’t watched it, go watch it on Netflix. 5. Coffee with D © Apex Entertainment This film didn’t do well at the box office. However, it was widely appreciated for the blazing performances of seasoned actors like Sunil Grover, Zakir Hussain, and Pankaj Tripathi among others. The satirical drama, that deals with an ambitious news anchor and his hunt for an 'ideal interviewee', was appreciated for the subject choice but not the treatment. 6. Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa © YouTube Interestingly, Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role, never got a commercial release in India; however, it premiered at the 2013 BFI London Film Festival. The movie also starred Pankaj Tripathi and Ananya Chatterjee, and marked the return of director Buddhadeb Dasgupta to Hindi cinema. The film’s plot is about a detective who decides to investigate his own life and the results that ensue. 7. Maazii © YouTube This thriller drama, starring Sumeet Nijhawan and Mona Wasu in lead roles, and Pankaj Tripathi, Zakir Hussain, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub in supporting roles received great critical acclaim but failed to rake in moolah at the box office due to its limited release. Helmed by debutant Jaideep Chopra, the film was lauded for being an exceptionally well-crafted thriller and revolved around a family's struggle to deal with an unexpected tragedy. You can stream this online on YouTube. 8. Global Baba © YouTube This satirical comedy film is based on the spiritual babas that are so unique to Indian culture. The film stars Abhimanyu Singh, Pankaj Tripathi, Sanjay Mishra, and Ravi Kishan among others in pivotal roles. According to critics, this film greatly benefited from a dependable starcast 'led by Pankaj Tripathi', although some reviewers did believe that the idea did not translate well into the script. You can stream this on Prime Video. 9. Sarojini - Ek Nayi Pehal © Zee This lesser-known drama series featured Shiny Doshi, Mohit Sehgal and Pankaj Tripathi in lead roles. The show’s plot revolved around the struggles of the lead character against the patriarchal setup of the family she is married in. Even though Pankaj Tripathi played the antagonist, he shined in his role without resorting to melodramatic performance - a feature common in many Hindi soap operas. He absolutely stoodout among other actors in the show. 10. Doosukeltha © YouTube Finally, here we talk about Tripathi’s Telugu film, which is a romantic drama. Titled Doosukeltha, the film was commercially successful and it featured Vishnu Manchu and Lavanya Tripathi in lead roles. Pankaj Tripathi played the role of the antagonist Minister Dilleeswara Rao and his nuanced performance was widely appreciated by audiences and critics alike. That is Pankaj Tripathi for you. He was also widely appreciated for his role of a godman in the second season of the popular Netflix series Sacred Games. He will now be next seen in Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl which features Jahnvi Kapoor in the lead role. He plays her father in the upcoming film which is directed and co-written by Sharan Sharma.

  8. Science fiction movies made in Hollywood easily catch our attention and draw huge numbers, because of their VFX effects and great editing skills. Even though in India, there are sci-fi movies that became massive hits at the box office, some of which include Mr India, Krrish, PK etc, there have also been times when Bollywood Sci-Fi movies tried too hard and failed miserably. Here are 6 such movies. Watch them at your own risk! 1. Love Story 2050 © Dolphin Media House Drona is a superhero movie, which isn't 'super' on any level. The movie comes with extravagant VFX that was believed to path-breaking and plausibly a hit for the box office, but can you imagine a superhero wearing a sherwani and performing a fight scene? In this movie, an orphaned boy Aditya realises that he has been bestowed with the mystic source of cosmic energy since he belongs to ancestral warriors. The plot was so awful that no director dared to make such a movie in Indian Cinema, ever again. 4. Alag © T-series The common malaise of lack of sleep is what led to the making of a movie like Sona Spa. The movie encourages people to not pop sleeping pills or drink alcohol to get sleep but instead come to the world of Sona Spa, where young women are paid to sleep on your behalf. The twist in this movie is that when these girls do so, they get access to your dreams and deep secrets as well. Now, even if you haven't been able to catch some sleep, this movie will definitely put you down, it's that bad! 6. Aa Dekhen Zara View the full article
  9. We’ve been compiling the greatest smartphones from each company from an era when phones used to be bold and experimental with their designs. It was a time when healthy competition resulted in great phones from every company, and one of them was Sony Ericsson. We’ve featured some of these phones in the past for being ., however, the company deserves its own list for having produced some of the greatest phones of all time. This article is all about remembering the legacy of Sony Ericsson and how it gave Nokia tough competition: 1. T68i © Sony Ericsson This was the first phone in the world that had support for tri-band compatibility, which means it could be used anywhere in the world. Countries tend to use different bands in network connectivity in different countries and this was the first phone to support it. It set a precedent for every other phone that has launched ever since, as users could use their phone in any part of the world. The phone did not even have an on-board camera, it was sold separately and could be attached for taking pictures. It was also the first phone to support two-way MMS, use an email client and compose their ringtones. The T68i was also the first phone in the world to feature a colour screen which was unheard of in 2003. 2. Sony Ericsson P-Series © YouTube/Cortado Sony Ericsson made the first true smartphones of our time that directly resulted in how smartphones are being made today. These series of PDAs were amongst the first open-source devices where third-party software could be installed. It has a full-screen design that covered with a keypad and could be used with a stylus as well. For other navigation purposes, the phone also came with a jog wheel at the top-right corner which could be used for selecting and launching applications.

The phone managed to sell 15 million units to date and remains one of the more popular phones from the company. 4. Sony Ericsson K Series © Wikipedia Commons The K-series was targeted towards photography enthusiasts where the K750 is probably the most popular phone from the series. The camera was easy to use as one just had to slide open to camera cover to turn it on. The phone even had a dedicated camera button similar to Sony’s Cybershot digital cameras. The phone later got the Cybershot branding with the K800i with better camera performance and an industry-first xenon flash. 5. Sony Ericsson T610 © Sony Ericsson The T610 was probably the most stunning phone ever made at the time, which resulted in this phone being a major success for the company. The phone had its infrared port that could be used to control TVs, vibrating alerts, polyphonic ringtones and a built-in GPRS modem. The phone looked incredible for its time and was celebrated for the curve that was divided vertically with thin metal or aluminium halves. These halves were also coloured and were available in silver, blue and red.

  12. Money Heist has a huge fan base across the globe and it got crazier when Netflix’s originals TV show released its 4th season in April. And now Netflix announced that Part 5 will be released shortly but that’s going to be the final season of the show. While the fans were expecting that the heist at the Bank of Spain Should have ended in part four but the end left us all thrilled. So, here are some fan theories that have flooded the internet and we have found the most popular ones for you. Inspector Alicia Sierra will help Professor and the gang. I think Alicia Sierra will make a deal with El Profesor and become a new member of the group. The police threw her under the bus and she wants revenge on them more than she wanted to catch la banda.#LaCasaDePapel4 pic.twitter.com/kpXteXF991 — mia (@lmwh3) April 4, 2020 At the end of part 4, Alicia Sierra was successful in finding the professor and fans think that she will change sides to join the Professor. Fans also think that she’d be doing this to take revenge from the police. The gang will escape from the main gate of the Bank of Spain. © Netflix The gang didn’t dig any tunnel for escape and so fans believe that they will exit through the main door this time. Also, a Reddit user thinks that the gang will throw gold granules from the sky which will cause chaos and help them escape wearing Dali masks. Berlin is Alicia Sierra’s husband. © Netflix In the show, Berlin was suffering from a disease and in Season 4, Alicia also reveals that her husband German died of cancer. Not only this she told Raquel that his last words were, "Turn on the news". The brainchild behind the popular theory is that Berlin is the capital city of Germany and Alicia’s husband's name was also ‘German’. Alicia Sierra and Tatiana are one person and her heist name is Paris.MONEY HEIST 4 THEORY (Spoiler) Sierra (the Pregnant Woman) is deep undercover. She is Tatiana. Do you remember who Tatiana is? Tatiana is BERLIN'S EX GIRLFRIEND! Sierra (Tatiana) is part of the Heist and her heist name is Paris. 🤯#MoneyHeist4#LaCasaDePapelS4 pic.twitter.com/cpqnVwYCLL — LANCE (@pajo_leeland) April 5, 2020Apart from Berlin and the Professor, the only person who knew details about the heist was Tatiana and that’s what has led to this theory. People think that Alicia Sierra and Tatiana are one person. Berlin Might be alive © Netflix According to one theory, which I think is given by a Kyuki Saas Bhi Bahu Thi fan as a few think that Berlin will return in the final season. Berlin was wearing a vest when he was shot by the police in season 2 and season 4 showed many flashbacks from Berlin’s wedding. All this is leading to a probability that Berlin might not be dead. Tokyo is the only gang member alive in the end © Netflix The narration of the whole show is done by Tokyo and which makes fans believe that she is the only gang member who survived through it till the end. Which theories do you believe? Let us know in the comments section below! View the full article

  14. Sanjay Dutt made his Bollywood film industry debut with a box-office blockbuster hit Rocky. He has a huge fan following even after many trials and tribulations that he faced in his life. Sanju Baba has given us films like Yalgaar, Gumrah, Dushman, and many more. He has been the Bollywood heartthrob and people have loved him for the roles he played and the movies he did.

  16. Hrithik Roshan is known as the ‘Greek God’ of the industry and he is also a heartthrob of Bollywood. He has given us some amazing films like Super 30 & War recently but in the past, he has done blunders just like any other Bollywood actor. He is one actor who has surprised us by keeping a well-toned body throughout his journey in Bollywood. Also, his fitness regime has often motivated his fans to become better and make a better physique. He gave his Bollywood debut with Amisha Patel in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai and the movie turned out to be a hit. The film left the audience impressed but then, he gave some flops that were total disasters and made the audience think twice before watching his films. Mohenjo Daro The film starred Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde in the lead role. The story of the film revolves around a farmer who travels the city of Mohenjo Daro and grows to fall in love with a rich woman. The film was declared a flop as it didn’t make much money at the box-office and also couldn’t impress the audience. Kites The film starred Barbara Mori and Hrithik Roshan in the lead roles. The storyline of the film revolved around a dance teacher who marries an immigrant woman so that they could get a green card. But, when they meet again, they fall in love with each other. The film disappointed the audience and apart from the songs of the film audience didn’t find anything worthwhile. Mai Prem Ki Diwani Hun The Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan starrer film are still talked about and made fun of as both the actors overacted in the film. The film’s story wasn’t that bad but the movie turned out to be a cringe-fest due to Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan’s overacting in it. Mujhse Dosti Karoge The movie stars Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherji in the lead role. The film’s plot revolves around a bizarre storyline of how Raj falls in love with Tina after she writes him emails every day after he has moved overseas with his family. However, he is unaware that Pooja is the one writing the emails to him on Tina's behalf. The film couldn’t do numbers at the box-office and tanked badly. Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage This film starred Hrithik Roshan and Amisha Patel in the lead roles. The film did not impress the audience at all and flopped at the box-office. The film revolves around the story of a girl who desires nothing more than love in life and wants to get married to Rohit (Hrithik Roshan) but her family doesn’t agree and created problems for them. Her father wants her to get married to a family friend’s son and would stop for nothing. View the full article
  17. Last month, the Indian government decided to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India, which included some of the popular apps like TikTok. Now, the government has banned 47 more Chinese apps in India, and this time, we're looking at the apps that were acting as clones to the ones that were banned previously. This news comes hot on the heels of the reports about PUBG Mobile and other Chinese apps getting banned in the country. While we don't have an official confirmation on that, we do know that these 47 clones have been banned. #Breaking 1st on TIMES NOW | Indian Govt bans 47 more Chinese apps which are reportedly, clones of the 59 applications which were earlier banned. Mohit Bhatt with details. pic.twitter.com/uUNNsALz4w — TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) July 27, 2020 Following the government's order to ban 59 Chinese apps on June 29, they've repeatedly warned the makers of the banned Chinese apps to strictly comply with the ban. The government said that those violating the order would face serious action. And now, we're looking at 47 more apps. It goes to show how seriously the government is tracking down these apps. People are calling it the government's 'second digital strike on China'. As of now, we don't have a confirmed list of apps banned this time. But as mentioned earlier, it includes the clones of Chinese apps that were banned previously. © Reuters In case you didn't know, the government is banning Chinese apps citing privacy reasons. The government said they've received numerous complaints against the Chinese apps about how they're "stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India". "The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures," the ministry said. We're not sure if the government is tracking down more apps, but we won't be surprised to see more Chinese apps getting banned in India. Source: TimesNow View the full article
  18. In Bollywood, directors usually use the old and methodized casting of auditioning the actors for a particular role. But in some cases, they go out of their way, relying on prosthetics, hairstyles and outfits, to turn around the actor's real age. These actors then, with their stellar performance go on to win the hearts of millions, by playing roles that aren't remotely close to their real age. Take a look at these actors, who were light years younger than the age of their characters in the movie. 1. Manoj Bajpayee In Aligarh © Excel Entertainment Manoj Bajpayee shook the world with his nuanced performance in Aligarh. The actor dared to take up the role of a professor in this film and break the stereotype around homosexuality. At the time of this movie, Bajpayee was 46 years old and essayed the role of a 64-year-old professor and nailed it. 2. Aishwarya Rai In Sarbjit © Twitter/Aishwarya Rai Online Aishwarya Rai has time and again proved her acting prowess in Bollywood. Her character in the movie Sarbjit as a bereaved sister, who is 60 years old was irreproachable. With one of her best works, she manifested the role of an old lady and proved that age cannot define anything. 3. Rishi Kapoor In Kapoor & Sons © Dharma Productions Rishi Kapoor's role as the most loveable Dadaji in Kapoor & Sons will always be remembered. The family drama movie garnered a lot of success and the admirable man who was 63 years old at the time of this movie, actually played the role of a 90-year-old grandfather and hit the right nerve. 4. Ranbir Kapoor In Sanju © Vinod Chopra Films Ranbir Kapoor's transformation in Sanju did not go unnoticed and this movie became a massive success at the box office as well. Besides his phenomenal performance in the movie, it is also worth mentioning that the actor played the role of 58-year-old Sanjay Dutt while he was only 35 years old at the time. 5. Kaman Hassan In Hindustani © Medium If there's one actor who is a movie maestro, when it comes to doing any sort of role, it is Kamal Hassan. The actor who aced the caricature of a 'chachi' in a movie like Chachi 420, also transformed himself and played the role of a 70-year-old man in Hindustani. This movie was one of his finest performances of all times and it was quite realistic, we have to say. 6. Anupam Kher in Saaransh © Rajshri Productions Veteran actor, Anupam Kher, who is known for his brilliant acting, made his debut with Saaransh when he was in his 20s. In this movie, he played the role of a stubborn aged father, who is lamenting the loss of his son. Imagine, this movie was his debut and he essayed the role of an old man and convinced the audience with his intense acting skills in the movie. 7. Amitabh Bachchan In Paa © MAD Entertainment Amitabh Bachchan essayed the role of a 12-year-old progeria patient in Paa and there's no denying the fact that he hit it out of the park, despite being 66 years old at the time. The actor also said in one of the interviews that the makeup artists had to stick several layers of clay to achieve the right look for the movie. While a lot of credit goes to them for his appearance, Amitabh still nailed the role of a preadolescent boy and the movie also received a lot of acclaims for the storyline. View the full article

  20. When a Bollywood movie is made, there's so much that goes into it, before it hits the big screen. Besides the riveting script, detailed setup and appropriate costumes of celebrities, there's a lot of trivia that we never get to know. If you are a movie buff but have missed out on these interesting facts about some of your favourite movies, here's a list. 1. Lagaan © Aamir Khan Productions Lagaan was one of the highest-grossing movies of 2001. In this movie, the village commoners agreed to play one hell of a cricket match with the Britishers, in a bid to waive off the unjust taxes. The cast naturally needed international faces and so this film recorded the highest number of British actors in it. Besides that, another trivia is that the first-ever cut of the movie was about 7.5 hours long. 2. Kal Ho Naa Ho © Dharma Productions We all know how Kal Ho Naa Ho had a tragic ending, but watching such a heart-wrenching scene wouldn't be as easy for SRK's kids and as per reports, Karan Johar made a special edit to the ending of Kal Ho Naa Ho for the sake of the kids, and the scene shows Aman flying away. Well, we totally believe it! 3. Dil Chahta Hai © Excel Entertainment A cult classic, Dil Chahta Hai went on to become a blockbuster with a story that revolves around three close friends. Director Farhan Akhtar struck a deep chord with the audiences, due to an amazing story. However, a lesser-known fact is that the original script was written in English by Farhan Akhtar, and was later painstakingly re-written in Hindi. 4. Koi Mil Gaya © Film Kraft The first instalment of Krrish, Koi Mil Gaya garnered rave reviews for its interesting storyline. In this movie, the ending shows that Jaadu leaves Rohit, with all the superpowers intact. But in reality, the movie had an alternate ending, where all the powers are taken away from Rohit. But since Rakesh Roshan wanted the audience to get good vibes only, the climax was changed and the rest, as they say, is history. 5. Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai © Film Kraft The Greek God of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan's debut in Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai is unforgettable. This movie became a massive hit, to an extent that it was added to the Guinness Book Of World Records, as it received a plethora of awards and the lucky number was 92! There's also another trivia that the glasses he wore in Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai were the same as he wore in Koi Mil Gaya. 6. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara © Excel Entertainment Because ZNMD had most of the scenes shot in Spain, there was a tourism hike of Indian tourists travelling there by 32%, post the release of this movie. That's the power of Bollywood movies! 7. Rockstar © Eros International Imitiaz Ali's very successful movie, Rockstar, also had some interesting elements. It is said that the movie was shot in reverse and the first shot was the climax of the movie because the filmmakers wanted to ensure that Ranbir's hairstyle does not get messed up while shooting. 8. Rang De Basanti © YouTube/Indian Cinema Talking about a spooky fact in Rang De Basanti, there's a scene where Sue looks at a watch and the time shown is 7:30 PM and it's the same time when legendary Bhagat Singh was sentenced to death in real life, and in the movie too.

  21. Phone charging speeds are getting faster with each year and soon, it will become a thing of the past where we have to wait for hours. In fact, OPPO has been making huge strides in fast charging technology and even licenses their tech to other brands like OnePlus and Realme. Last year, the company announced a 65W charger that could charge some of their phones in 30 minutes. © iQoo_Weibo This year, OPPO has improved the charging tech and now claims that their new 125W charger will be able to fully charge a smartphone in 15 minutes. Vivo has already shown off 120W charging tech for their sub-brand iQOO and can charge the phone’s 4,000 mAh battery in 15 minutes. The company did post a video of the demo, however, we could not see it for ourselves since Weibo is blocked in India at the moment. So far, we’ve already seen companies like Realme and OnePlus bringing faster charging speeds for their phones and in some cases; even wireless charging. It is worthy to point out OPPO and the subsequent brands do not use power-delivery charging protocols and instead, use their own proprietary method called SuperVooc. If you don’t like waiting to charge, the wait is almost over. #FlashForward pic.twitter.com/Uq54uJEphQ — OPPO (@oppo) July 13, 2020 However, it remains to be seen whether OPPO will be able to roll out 125W chargers in mass in the near future. Currently, OPPO will be officially announcing the 125W charger on 15th July and may just be called "super flash charge”. © OPPO Fast charging on phones does not only depend on the higher wattage as it also depends on the device you are using and how much electricity the phone’s circuitry is designed to take in. There are also different types of fast charging and if you want to know more about how it works, check out our guide here. What do you think about a 125W charger that can fully charge your smartphone in 15 minutes? Would you be interested in getting one for yourself or are you concerned that the fast charger may affect the battery life? Let us know in the comments. View the full article
  22. The context of the first season comes in handy to understand the shaky premise that the second season, Breathe: Into The Shadows is built upon. © Prime Video In the first season of the show, a seemingly innocent football coach and father (R Madhavan) kills organ donors in order to escalate his six-year-old son's name (who is terminally ill) on the organ recipient list. Also starring Amit Sadh as police inspector Kabir Sawant (who reprises his role in the second season), deals with a tragic past while solving the case. As a pulsating narrative, the show worked and balanced itself out as it navigated on the fine lines of moral ambiguity leaving the spectator thrown off and unable to sympathise entirely with either the killer or his victims. © Prime Video Directed and co-written by Mayank Sharma along with Bhavani Iyer and Vikram Tuli, Breathe: Into the Shadows is a thematic sequel that introduces us to Dr. Avinash Sabharwal (played by Abishek Bachchan), a psychiatrist who is often consulted by the crime branch and his wife Abha Sabharwal, (played by Nithya Menen) a chef at a luxury hotel. The couple is hit by a tragedy when their 6-year-old daughter Siya is kidnapped. © Prime Video In the 'usual' abduction cases, a ransom call is expected within the next 48 hours of abduction, Avinash worryingly notes from his experience of handling cases with the crime branch, as shown in an irrelevant short stint at the beginning of the series. In their daughter's case, no contact has been established for nine long months at a stretch, this is what the trailer tells you as well. © Prime Video This peculiarity becomes the plotline for the series. When the kidnapper, a masked man with a limp, finally sends out a parcel that gives hope to the parents, it also comes with underlying conditions that involve murdering people. The show goes on to explore how far the parents go to get their daughter back but fails to set up the apparently 'unprecedented' circumstances that await them despite spending four episodes on the setting up the context. It fails to convince the spectator that a seemingly sensible couple has run out of all rational options available to them. © Prime Video Avinash soon figures that he will have to murder 10 people to get his daughter back, with each victim representing the ten heads of Raavana (emotions like anger, fear, lust), as the show follows the trope of adding a mythological angle (seen in shows like Sacred Games, Asur) to make the plot more complex. However, as the season progresses, the mythological connection becomes a redundant angle added to the narrative. © Prime Video This, although, is only one of the examples of the many intervening subplots in the show, with little to no significance to the narrative and unconvincing flashbacks conveniently plugged in to justify the progression of the plot. The writing falters in keeping the multi-layered narrative taut as it moves forward, leaving the 12 episode series to partly become a chaotic mess. © Prime Video Avinash Sabharwal as the center of the show ironically has the most underwritten character that the show could've potentially explored, delved deeper into, and yet what we get instead just doesn't sit right or feel plausible enough. © Prime Video But the show does have its merits. The casting for all the supporting characters has been done impeccably. From the jealous inspector Zeba Rizvi (played by Shraddha Kaul), an insecure police officer to Saiyami Kher as Shirley, a *** worker and the two sub-inspectors who constantly compete to become Kabir's right hand. © Prime Video But the one character who saves the show is inarguably Amit Sadh. Sadh's haunting composure and all-consuming screen presence make his agenda a worthy one to root for. © Prime Video In some scenes, Sadh conveys his character's conviction without any words. With a traumatic past and 6 months in jail and a troubling liver, Sadh pulls off an effortless stint. © Prime Video Other than that, another commendable aspect is the fact that from Abha's job as a chef to manic pixie Meghna's support group, all women have defining careers in the show, details that the script attempts to involve in the narrative in an engaging way. The show also attempts to end on a symbolic note, showcasing the merging of two realities of when the mask and the person behind it become one which if fine-tuned could have been a striking climax. © Prime Video With the 'C-16' cliffhanger in the epilogue, the show quite possibly could return with a sequel to the story.

  23. While most of us watched Karan Joharâs Student Of The Year, we thought such schools donât exist at all. And most of us wanted to study in a fancy and posh school like St. Teresa but didnât know if such schools existed. To our surprise, many schools in India give us the Bollywood set the vibe and are exactly how it was shown in KJoâs SOTY. So, here is a list of 5 such schools in India thatâll astound you and give Bollywood sets a run for their money- Mayo College, Ajmer © Youtube/Kanak Arora This one looks less of a school and more of a five-star luxurious resort.

  24. Bollywood films are extremely popular in the country and hold a major power of influence at the same time. They're known to influence the audience not just in terms of trends but also mannerisms the people see in the films. Naturally, films also have a huge potential for advertising in them that brands take advantage of. But brand placements that do not make any sense do come across as weird and hilarious at the same time. Here are a few films that went overboard with brand advertisements 1. Mountain Dew In Mission Istaanbul © IMDB A product that the actors in the film constantly drank throughout the film and we wondered whether they were all addicted to Mountain Dew. 2. Saffolla In Ki and Ka © IMDB When Arjun Kapoor cooks in the kitchen, he uses the brand to cook the food in the house. Some believe that this was a smart product placement. 3. Mountain Dew In Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara © IMDB Hrithik Roshan has had a long-standing association with Mountain Dew. Even in the film ZNMD, he promoted the brand by using its tagline and drinking it whenever he could. A cheeky reference to the brand is seen when he says, âDarr Ke Aage Jeet Haiâ to his friends before they all go for sky diving. 4. Maruti In Mere Dad Ki Maruti © IMDB For a film with a title that has a huge potential, brand collaboration seemed like the most obvious step. But this was one of the most blatant brand collaborations seen. 5. Bournvita In Koi Mil Gaya And Krrish © IMDB For the film Koi Mil Gaya and its sequel, there was a brand collaboration with the kid's energy milk booster Bournvita. The collaboration was so blatant that it was hilarious when Hrithik drank Bournvita milk. 6. Tide In Chup Chup Ke © IMDB Chup Chup Ke too has done a collaboration with Tide detergent powder in a scene in which it blended so well, it looked like seamless product placement in a film for once. But we have to agree that it did come across as a tad bit hilarious. 7. Bikaji Bhujia In Veere Di Wedding © IMDB In the film, everyone seems to be munching on bhujia almost all the time. In fact, this is the most bhujia we've seen being consumed in a film. From Sonam Kapoor and Neena Gupta's character to the guests, everyone is obsessed with bhujia. While Veere Di Wedding also had other brand collaborations, this one particularly stood out. View the full article
  25. Pornography has been a part of our lives for a really long time now. Before the rise of the internet, porn was created and made available to masses via magazines or VHS cassettes or DVDs. But with the growing popularity and easier access to the online world, accessing porn sites is just a click away. The pace at which technology is growing has also made it more immersive than ever, especially with the dawn of Virtual Reality. © iStock The decision to watch porn boils down to a personâs personal choice. However, is it harmful to your health and wellness? According to a 2014 research by the Max Planck Institute in Berlin, the part of the brain which is responsible for triggering pleasure, that is, the striatum, is smaller in those who are regular porn-viewers. This essentially means that they need graphic material to get aroused. It is important to mention, however, that the researchers could not come up with a conclusion on whether the smaller striatum of the test subjects led them to watch more porn or was caused because they watched so much of it. They âassumedâ that the latter is true. © iStock These 7 alarming signs suggest that you might be getting addicted to pornography:If the amount of time you have been spending on watching porn continues to increase on a regular basis. If you feel that you HAVE TO watch porn at least once a day or else something feels missing or your day feels incomplete. If the guilt of watching porn takes over your brain and you continue to do it despite feeling low. © iStock If you spend long periods of time surfing through the internet even at the cost of missing out on other responsibilities or urgent work. If you donât feel aroused by real *** and prefer masturbation over it while watching porn. © iStock If you expect or start asking your partner to âdress like a pornstarâ or behave like one while in bed, during ***. You canât get over the urge to flip out your phone and watch porn even if you know that it is disputing your relationship both sexually and emotionally. © iStock You have to understand that what you watch online isnât real. The people you see âenactingâ sexual pleasure are professional performers who are simply doing their job. The viewers often mistake that as reality and start expecting similar things in their lives and when it feels nothing like what they see online, sometimes they choose to lose themselves in the virtual world. Just keep a check on yourself and if you relate to any of the above mentioned points, act on it for the sake of your happiness and that of the people around you.
