  1. Prince Harry never understood why Queen Elizabeth forbade Meghan Markle from wearing the emerald tiara
  2. While Apple would like you to believe that the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are different from each other, a teardown video shows that the two smartphones are nearly identical to each other. In fact, they are so similar, it’s quite hard to differentiate between the two. © YouTube When we look closely, both devices have the same L-Shaped printed circuit board (PCB) with the only difference being the additional LiDAR connector on the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone 12 does not come with a LiDAR sensor and logically the connector is also missing from the PCB. What’s weird is that the PCB on both phones are so identical that there are plastic fillings for the missing LiDAR and telephoto sensors in the iPhone 12. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro also have the same battery capacity i.e. 2815mAh, however it could have been possible for Apple to house a bigger battery for the iPhone 12, but instead it opted to use the same battery on both devices. Apple probably chose to use the same batteries in order to cut costs. This also means that both devices will more or less have the same battery life. Most of the components used in both phones are the same which means these components could be interchangeable. This could also be a way for Apple to reduce repair costs for the iPhone, however one can never know if these components are interchangeable. © Unsplash It’s been long suspected that the only difference between the two models happens to be only in the camera department and this teardown shows exactly that. What’s astonishing is that the two models have a huge price difference especially when there is only a difference in the camera and RAM capacity. Most of the components such as the Taptic Engine, the TrueDepth camera system, display and even Qualcomm's X55 modem chip are all in the same place. What do you think about the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro being nearly identical but having vastly different prices? Let us know in the comments if this changes your decision for which iPhone 12 to get.

This year, the hit TV show has made a comeback with its 14th season this October. © Colors According to a report, Salman Khan became the highest-paid TV show host, with a fee of Rs 16 crore per episode. However, the actor has now taken a pay cut to accommodate the fees of other members of the show owing to the COVID-19 situation. During the launch event of the latest season, Salman said, “I am more than happy to cut it down so everyone else can get paid.” © Colors While you already know how much Salman is making per episode, ever wondered how much do the contestants earn on the show?

  6. Bollywood songs from the 2000s are some of the best songs that Hindi cinema has ever given us. These songs have made us feel alive and some of them have also been part of long drives and house parties. These songs will instantly remind you of the fabulous time back then and will make you want to go back in time. The hook steps of these songs have been etched in our hearts forever and we will never forget them. However, some of these songs were our favorites but now we have completely forgotten them. So, here is a list of 5 such Bollywood songs from the 2000s that we forgot about, which used to be our favorite when they had released. Pappu Can’t Dance Sala Almost all of us have enjoyed dancing to this song and, not only the song, the film also did great at the box office. The film starred Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza in the lead roles and revolved around how two best friends fell in love with each other. Mitwa The song from the film Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna was a hit at that time and now that you have been reminded about this song, you’d definitely want to listen to it once. The film starred Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukherji, Preity Zinta and Abhishek Bachchan in prominent roles. Ab To Forever The film starred Rani Mukherji and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles and both of them looked stunning in the film. A lot of women got a similar haircut that Rani Mukherji donned in the film and also this song became one of the superhits of that time. It’s The Time To Disco If you don’t know the hook-step to this song, then you’re clearly missing out on some fun in your life. Most of us have given solo performances in front of the mirror on this song. The film Kal Ho Na Ho gave us some great songs but this one stood out and made it to the list of our favourites. Woh Ajnabee This song had extraordinarily catchy lyrics and if we listen to this song today, many of us will still know the lyrics. The song is from the film The Train starring Emran Hashmi, Geeta Basra and Sayali Bhagat in prominent roles. View the full article
  7. It hasn’t even been a week but we’re already hearing about the OnePlus 9 and when it is expected to launch next year. Usually, OnePlus reserves the months April-May for the launch of their flagship smartphones, however it seems like this time around the company may move their plans ahead. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Smartphone cycles don’t seem to stop and that was evident even during the COVID-19 pandemic amidst limited production and output from factories. However, that did not stop companies from launching their latest products including the recently announced iPhone 12. Now, a report from Android Central claims that an insider source tells them that the OnePlus 9 is expected to launch a month earlier than the company’s usual launch cycle. The OnePlus 9 is being planned for a March launch in 2021 according to Android Central’s report which is a month before OnePlus' usual launch date for their phones. OnePlus is not the only company looking to move up their launch schedule as last week reports suggested even Samsung is moving up its launch schedule for the next ‘Galaxy S’ smartphone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There’s no additional information about the OnePlus 9 as of now however we can make an educated guess about the upcoming phone. Much like every other OnePlus device, we can expect the OnePlus 9 to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset which could be the Snapdragon 875. The OnePlus 9 will also use the company’s new 65W Warp Charge feature since it has now launched on the OnePlus 8T and it will be a standard feature for future OnePlus smartphones. Similarly, the OnePlus 8T also comes with a 120Hz display just like the OnePlus 8 Pro and there’s no reason why it wouldn’t make a return on the OnePlus 9. There could be a chance that the smartphone may even come with a 144Hz display on the Pro model since we’ve already seen OnePlus’ competition i.e. ASUS and Xiaomi roll out smartphones with 144Hz refresh rate displays. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla It would be prudent to point out that most of the information above is still very early to be accurate and should be taken with a pinch of salt. In terms of specifications, we’ve speculated based on OnePlus’ past launch trends and weighed in what the competition is offering in order for the company to keep up with the industry.

  8. It's Halloween time and the only type of movie anyone is allowed to watch this month is horror movies. Sorry, I don't make the rules. Every time a new horror movie comes out, we always get to hear how it's the 'scariest movie ever', and well, they rarely live up to the expectation. © Warner Bro With every scary movie marketed that way, it was time for science to decide the scariest movie ever, once and for all, and we have the results. © Broadband Choices According to “Science of Scare Project", a study conducted by Broadband Choices, we have a definite list of science-approved scary movies and it's a little unexpected. Basically, for this study, they took 50 people and hooked them up to a heart monitor. Then, they were made to watch 120 hours of the best horror movies out there. And then, everyone's heart rates were taken into account to declare the scariest of the scariest. © Broadband Choices Disclaimer - yes, 50 people is not a lot, and of course, the list is not accurate for the entire population, we get it. It's still a scientific study. So, here are the top ten movies that made people's heart rate go up by a lot, starting from the scariest: 1. Sinister © Alliance Films The movie follows a has-been true-crime writer who moves his wife and kids into a house where a family had previously been murdered. Determined to solve the mystery of the murdered family to use as a basis of his next novel, he soon realizes there's a lot more going on in the haunted house. 2. Insidious © Blumhouse Productions Another haunted house story but in this, the parents realize that their comatose son is actually possessed by some evil entities. 3. The Conjuring © Warner Bros *clap clap* Yet another movie where white people move into a sinister-looking house in the middle of nowhere and then realize it's haunted. The Perron family starts going through increasingly terrifying events and then get help from paranormal investigators. 4. Hereditary © A24 After the death of the matriarch of the Graham family, the family starts to uncover the terrifying secrets of their ancestry as they get haunted by a mysterious presence. 5. Paranormal Activity © Blumhouse Productions A couple senses that they are being haunted by a supernatural presence in their home and set up a camera to uncover the truth and document it. The found-footage approach actually makes the movie seem more authentic, thus even more terrifying. 6. It Follows © Northern Lights Films Basically, an STD, but make it haunted. A teenage girl is followed by a supernatural entity after a sexual encounter and can only get rid of it after having *** with someone else and passing it on. 7. The Conjuring 2 © Warner Bros. The sequel continues with the Warrens, the paranormal investigators from the first movie, coming out of a sabbatical and jumping continent to help out a family in the UK. After the Warrens try to help the youngest daughter who's possessed, they end up becoming the new target of the malicious spirit. 8. The Babadook © Entertainment One A monster movie, The Babadook follows a single mother dealing with her son's paranoid fears of a monster only to realize they are surrounded by a sinister presence all around. 9. The Descent © Celador Films A group of women head to a cave to explore it but soon after descending, they find strange paintings and evidence of a previous expedition, soon realizing that they are not alone. 10. The Visit © Universal Pictures Another found-footage movie, it follows two teenaged siblings going to their estranged grandparents' house to spend a week with them as their mother goes off with her boyfriend. Can't say anything else without spoiling it, but it gets real creepy real quick. So, if you have seen all the movies mentioned above, well, congratulations! you're a true horror flick connoisseur.

  9. The past couple of months have been overwhelming in terms of smartphone launches as none of the OEMs wanted to miss out on the festive shopping spree. With an influx of devices, it often gets difficult to pick and choose the ones that offer the most value for money. For Samsung, we think it was the newest entry into the M-Series, the Galaxy M51. Honestly, we didn't expect this gem of a phone to come knocking at our doors. This is one of those phones that has managed to stay with us ever since it came out. There are quite a few things we like about the Galaxy M51 but we'll be talking just the three of them here. Battery Life © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Samsung Galaxy M51 is good at many things but the battery is where it brilliantly dominates the competition. The phone packs a generous 7,000 mAh battery. It is by far the largest battery we've seen on any mainstream smartphone. Regardless of how busy the day has been for the phone, there's a good chance that you'll still end your day with enough charge left to play a few games or watch a movie or a TV show. We tried really hard to kill the battery in one day but we gave up before the phone did. The charging speed is also not too shabby considering the battery size. You get a 25W charger inside the box and it takes about 2 hours to top it up. We'd love to see a faster-charging solution for the successor more than anything else. Display © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Galaxy M51 also sports a beautiful 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O panel. It's got a tall 20:9 aspect ratio with support for FullHD+ resolution. It's a typical Samsung AMOLED panel that we've come to cherish over the years. It's a joy to look at and we certain that you'll have a great time using it, be it for gaming, watching videos, etc. It also has widevine L1 support to stream HD content on OTT platforms. There's also support for HDR, so those HDR-supported YouTube videos will look really good. It's a best in class Super AMOLED panel with great color reproduction. Performance © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Galaxy M51 is powered by the Snapdragon 730G this time instead of going for its in-house Exynos chipsets. It is backed by up to 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The performance of the phone is super smooth across all the day-to-day tasks. You won't encounter any lags while using the phone. Samsung's OneUI has also gotten better now and it's far from the sluggish UI were used to on older Samsung phones. You'll also have a great time gaming on this phone. The performance is solid and you won't have to worry about the battery too. The Final SayBesides the points we've mentioned above, there are plenty of other things we like about the Galaxy M51 and that's exactly why we keep coming back to it even after using so many devices that are coming out. It's a great phone and we think it's perfect for those who are looking to buy a phone under Rs 25,000. View the full article
  10. Sharad Kelkar graduated to the film industry after being a part of the television industry for a long time. Besides him impressing us in movies like Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Bhoomi with his acting prowess, we also have to shed light on the fact that he is a celebrity with fashion-forward choices. He doesn't make a lot of appearances, but when he is papped sometimes our eyes instantly go to his outfits. Another aspect of Sharad that struck us are his sneaker choices. © Viral Bhayani © Houseofbeat The shoes, in question, are called Nike Air Max 270 “Solar Red”. A lot of people assumed that these sneakers were shelved, but there came an array of styles of Air Max 720 and Air Max 270 reacts. The pair, here, has a red base layer with black woven upper with a glazed-on black overlay. The metallic swooshes add a contrasting element to the sneakers and the jet black air unit and the outsole bring more edge to the overall silhouette of the shoes. View the full article
  11. For designer Ravi Gupta of Gargee Designers, tradition, it seems, is paramount. The same sensibility is usually reflected in the menswear that he makes. Before joining the label that his father, Shyam Gupta started in the 1980s, Ravi worked closely with people like Karan Johar, Varun Bahl and labels like Diwan Saheb, all of whom are considered to be legends, when it comes to Indian Fashion. © Ravi Gupta With a clientele that boasts of Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Siddharth Malhotra, Ranbir Kapoor and several other celebrities, Gargee Designers, under Ravi Gupta, has a rather unique perspective, combining elements of both, retail or off-the-rack fashion, and bespoke, designer pieces. © Ravi Gupta We had a little chat with Ravi, about fashion in the post-COVID era, the changes in consumer behaviour, and how the fashion industry has reacted to the sudden paradigm shift. What is that one current trend that we see today on the ramp, that has the potential of making it big among common, regular people in the future? 'Bandhgala' is a piece that is classic and will stay in vogue for a long time. It’s a silhouette that has also been popular on the international ramps. It gives an elegant and regal feel irrespective of which culture it is adapted into. Originally, it’s an Indian concept, which has been adopted by the western designers in a number of different ways. © Isha Bhansali How has consumer behaviour changed in the post-COVID era? How have you prepared to take on those changes? The pandemic has forced people to postpone their weddings and people are even avoiding gathering in big numbers. Consequently, the functions have reduced and therefore, the demand for outfits per function has also reduced. Also, from a style and fashion perspective, people are not experimenting with looks. They prefer to keep the designs simple and in my experience, ivory Sherwani is making a major comeback among grooms. So, we are seeing a change where people are going back to conventional patterns and dressing. © Ravi Gupta As far as preparations are concerned, we had to brainstorm a lot and keeping the crisis in view, we decided to postpone our planned collection and started preparing a different collection, which could suit the needs of the consumers in the current time. We settled on using versatile colours, less-experimental cuts and gave more stress on classic pieces that can be used again and again for future occasions. Tell us something about your creative process. How do you come up with themes, motifs and images for your creations? We try to do that by analysing the market trends and closely observing the trend pattern among our consumers’ demand. We then track the common colours, designs, styles and patterns that are most popular among them. We also keep a track on the international and Indian designers and try to learn about new changes they are bringing in the fashion world. All this together helps us prepare a blueprint that is promising for the creative and commercial world too. © Ravi Gupta What is that one trend in men's fashion that you don't like? I strongly disagree with trends that are high on experimentation. Anarkali kurtas and tops for men is a turn off for me. It gives a very feminine look which takes away the glory of a traditional outfit that is known for its grace and charm. It is hard for Indian men to pull off an Anarkali style outfit because it doesn’t fit the traditional mould of a well-dressed groom. How the industry as a whole is dealing with sustainable and eco-friendly fashion? It’s been a trend for quite some time and the recent pandemic gave it a wider scope, as the lockdown made designers and fashion houses rethink about the future of fashion. From fashion shows going digital and major stress on the campaign ‘Make in India’, there is growing potential in the trend that is likely to generate more employment and change the face of Indian fashion in near future. © Nakuul Mehta What are your views on the debate around Maximalism vis-a-vis Minimalism? I think it changes from person to person because fashion and style is a personal thing. Minimalism is chic, yet on the other hand, maximalism is also contemporary and edgy. A balance of the two is also something that is a preference for some. I don't see it as a debate, because something being too much or too less is a personal choice. Where does e-commerce or online shopping fit into your scheme of things? Online shopping is changing the market at a rapid rate. The pandemic has boosted the online buying behaviour of consumers. This is likely to grow, as designers and brands are starting their own e-commerce websites and are investing a lot in online shopping networking. Also, there is a growing market for virtual styling and fashion consultation, which is expected to revolutionize the fashion world in the next decade. © Ravi Gupta How difficult is it for a new designer or a label to get a break in the industry? Given the current situation, it is definitely not easy because the existing designers are already providing consumers with all the latest trends. Unless a new designer has a unique fashion idea, it will be hard for them to survive. Anything unique tends to get more attention and popularity. Also, a strong online and offline marketing of the idea is likely to get a fairly good chance to make it big. © Ravi Gupta Where do you think men's fashion in India is heading? Men's fashion in India is at its best. I think it will stay there and only evolve. Previously, men were not fashion conscious. The modern man has his own taste and preferences. The change has been brought in by the international brands and Indian designers have added an edge to it. The rise in travel has also given men the liberty to experiment and open their minds to fashion and styling. They are able to make informed choices and also have their own ideas on how their outfit should be styled and even tailored. © Instagram/pyumishra Tell us something about Anahata, your latest festive collection. 'Anahata' is the heart chakra or the fourth primary chakra, according to Hindu Yogic. This collection came to life during the lockdown and has a spiritual connection. It’s a collection that is very close to my heart and revolves around geometric prints, subtle and soothing colours, and classic silhouettes; because I feel that the ongoing period is all about basics. Even the upcoming wedding season will see very basic and classic silhouettes. So keeping that in view, we have designed this collection and is likely to be accepted by a wider audience. © Ravi Gupta Three words you'd use to describe your signature style? Classic, versatile, and affordable luxury. Do you think traditional Indian menswear is evolving? Yes, certainly, it is! Any advice for younger designers who are trying to get a break in the industry Be original and create your own unique style. What would be your alternate career option, if not fashion? A yoga practitioner/teacher. One key trend that you think has the potential to make it big in the menswear market Long jackets - thigh or knee-length. Men's fashion in India slipped through the cracks of the mainstream fashion scene and has stayed under the radar for far too long. Take a look at any fashion event - fashion weeks, fashion shows et all, and you'll see how in most of them, menswear seems to be an afterthought. Furthermore, shows focusing exclusively on menswear are a rarity. As a series, Ace Indian Designers is an earnest attempt to celebrate the changing phase of men's fashion in India, and those pioneering geniuses who have come to define our sartorial sensibilities.

  12. Though the majority decision of the Supreme Court deems reference illegal, it says it did not find any ill intention behind it
  13. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's photo was showcased by TIME magazine's promotional teaser of the virtual event.
  14. We genuinely love it when we see our Indian celebrities ditch western clothes and go all desi, embracing Indian silhouettes. Whether you think of bandhgalas and achkans, or the humble dhoti, Indian celebs know how to take the ethnic route in style. Believe it or not though, as charming as most of them look, they simply don’t compare to the aristocratic charisma that Saif Ali Khan exudes. We genuinely think, that as far as Indian menswear is concerned, he truly is the King Of Bollywood (sorry Shah Rukh!). Here are a few pictures to prove that: © Facebook/saifalikhan 1. No one can deny the fact that Saif looks regal in this black outfit from Shantanu & Nikhil. We particularly like the asymmetrical silhouette of the achkan and the elaborate brooch that has been used as an accessory here. © Viral Bhayani 2. Then, there is this classic black achkan, with golden buttons. The decision to pair it with white pants and a pair of black oxfords is as elegant as styling can get. © Facebook/saifalikhan 3. Now, this is how you go monochrome. The entire outfit, from the kurta-pyjama set to his slip-ons, are all golden, but because of the manner in which they fit, and that Nehru jacket with an intricate tonal print, it does not look tacky. © Facebook/saifalikhan 4. Wearing a light shade of grey on a white kurta can be a little boring. Here, Saif shows how adding a bit of colour, either through the buttons, or a simple, but vibrant pocket square can spruce up any boring outfit, exponentially. © Viral Bhayani 5. Again, going all white can be very risky, especially since embroidery, no matter how delicate and intricate, is not always clearly visible. So what does Saif do here? He ensures that there is an element of colour, using that pink turban. © Facebook/saifalikhan 6. Mixing the best of Indian aesthetics with western silhouettes, this ensemble ticks all the boxes for aristocratic dressing. We particularly like the choice of the brown sleeveless bandhgala, which seems to be made of coarse wool. That works really well on top of a simple, white dress shirt. Oh, and those monk straps, are again, awesome. © Viral Bhayani 7. Finally, we have this magnificent bandhgala from Raghavendra Rathore. The French cuffs of the shirt, the mauve pocket square, the manner in which the buttons are held together on the bandhgala with circular toggle buttons - everything works just perfectly. Seriously, if you have a wedding or an event to attend to, and are planning to take the Indian Ethnic route, you’ve got to go with something that emulates what Saif has worn in the past. Trust us, you can’t go wrong. View the full article
  15. Brad Pitt reveals the craziest and strangest places fans have approached him for a chat or an autograph
  16. Actor Prabhas is no longer just a Telugu superstar - his stardom and immense fan following spreads across the length and breadth of India, and even across the world. It is true that Baahubali's massive success has a lot to do with his immense fan following. However, it isn’t completely fair to solely credit Prabhas' popularity to just this one film. The 41-year-old actor made his onscreen debut with the 2002 Telugu action drama film Eeswar. Since then there has been no turning back for the actor as he has done multiple films with interesting storylines. On the occasion of his birthday today, here we have created a list of movies with his best performances, so far, for all his fans: 1. Baahubali 1- The Beginning If you haven’t watched this film, don’t call yourself Prabhas fan yet. With Baahubali- The Beginning, director S. S. Rajamouli expanded the horizon of filmmaking in India. Its action sequences, visual effects, cinematography and the sheer grandeur was something that no other film in the history of filmmaking in our country had been able to achieve. Released in 2015, the first of the two Baahubali films went on to break many records and became one of the highest-grossing Indian films ever. Besides, the film’s popularity crossed national boundaries with Prabhas and Rana Daggubati emerging as megastars. 2. Bahubali 2- The Conclusion What followed the first Baahubali film was the nation's most popular unsolved mystery - "Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?" It kept the audiences guessing until the release of its sequel in 2017 titled Baahubali: The Conclusion. The film is the second highest-grossing film in India, further cementing Prabhas' global stardom. 3. Chatrapathi Sivaji, a refugee who migrates to Andhra Pradesh from Sri Lanka due to riots, fights to protect the rights of bonded labourers who are exploited by a mafia, earning him the title of Chhatrapati. Released in 2005, the film has all the elements of a classic Telugu action film balanced with romance and the protagonist's emotions for his mother. 4. Mirchi Noted story and dialogue writer Koratala Siva made his directorial debut with this movie. Prabas starred alongside Anushka Shetty and also won a Nandi Award for his romantic role. This movie has romance, ultimate action scenes and a great plot twist, making it a great entertainer. 5. Saaho With Saaho, a multi-language film, Prabhas made his official Hindi debut, along with Shraddha Kapoor. It's an action movie for which a futuristic city called 'Wazi' was built from the scratch. With a budget of Rs 300 Crores, Saaho is also considered the third most expensive film made in the country. View the full article
  17. Apple Glasses have been long rumoured to launch sometime in 2022 and it seems like we finally have some reliable information about the device. Display Expert Ross Young tweeted details about the kind of display the Apple Glasses could use for production and it may launch sometime in 2022. © Youtube_Tech Vision Young said in his Tweet, "heard from multiple sources that Apple is pursuing AR/VR glasses using Sony microOLEDs. 0.5", 1280x960 resolution, 1H'22 intro." In his Tweet, Young is implying that the Apple Glasses could use Sony’s OLED microdisplay technology which Sony has already confirmed it built for AR/VR applications. Sony says the OLED microdisplays have a contrast ratio of 100,000:1 and an incredible response rate 0.01ms or less. Since glasses don’t tend to use lenses typically about two inches wide, the leak suggests OLED micro-displays might be embedded into the lenses of the Apple Glasses. It could be used to project visual data across the entire lens surface or have a limited field of view of the augmented reality heads up display (HUD). We have heard from multiple sources that Apple is pursuing AR/VR glasses using Sony microOLEDs. 0.5", 1280x960 resolution, 1H'22 intro. Thoughts? — Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) October 22, 2020 While Young did say Apple plans to use these Sony displays for VR and AR purposes, however he later clarified that Apple plans to use them for AR applications only. This is in line with previous rumours that Apple has been working on an AR-only headset for the past few years and may launch a VR/AR hybrid device later. © Twitter_ARVRJourney Young has previously suggested that the 2021 iPhone 13 lineup will have OLED displays with 120Hz refresh rates which is also in line with other leaks. Young could have deep connections and sources inside Apple or within its manufacturing ecosystem that has made him a credible source in the past. Previous patents filed by Apple have given us an idea of how the AR Glasses could work. The patent 'Keyboard Operation With Head-mounted Device,’ by Apple shows how the company plans to project a 'virtual keyboard' onto a desk or 'touch-sensitive surface' and register your keystrokes using the Glasses. © iDropNews It sure looks like an exciting product if Apple manages to deliver any of the features from its patents. Launch of the Apple Glasses looks like it still needs time and won’t launch anytime soon. Apple has also been known to change their plans for products so we advise taking all of the information above with a huge grain of salt. We could hear more about the Apple Glasses soon and will keep updating you about all the leaks and rumours. View the full article
  18. This week on our list of binge-worthy content for the weekend is Saqib Saleem and Shweta Basu Prasad’s digital film Comedy Couple on ZEE5. And this one comes with only one recommendation – watch it with your partner if you can. Comedy Couple is a relatable and funny rom-com with just the right dose of entertainment. The nearly 2-hour feature film takes us behind the stage and straight to the center of the relationship drama of two “in love” comedians Zoya and Deep, who not only live together but also perform together. ZEE5 While Zoya (Shweta Basu Prasad) is the no-nonsense, go-getter in the relationship, Deep (Saqib Saleem) is the forever confused millennial who quit his six-figure paying corporate job for standup. But that’s not his only issue. He hasn’t told his parents about his big career switch and neither do they know about his live-in relationship. Hitting millennials right where it hurts the most, this rom-com captures the essence of fragile relationships and confrontations with parents. Directed by Nachiket Samant, Comedy Couple plays out like the perfect merge of standup comedy and drama. The movie starts with Zoya and Deep’s new act and just like its enticing start, the movie ends with a perfect emotional and comedic punch. The movie also manages to capture the pragmatic standup scene in India where comedians are often pulled up and arrested for hurting “religious sentiments”. From appeasing the upset to getting thrown in jail, Zoya and Deep struggle to find their footing in the standup field. Playing a standup comedian might be easier than being one in India, but Shweta Basu Prasad and Saqib Saleem do a stellar job on stage. They hit the punch line right almost every time. ZEE5 Comedy Couple also has a stellar ensemble cast that includes actress Pooja Bedi. She plays Zoya’s mother and is the reason for her aversion to the conventional millennial rebellion. The movie also stars Rajesh Tailang as Deep’s father Mukesh. Pranay Manchanda, who plays the comedy duo's manager Siddhu has done a marvelous job with his well-timed jabs and dialogue delivery. While Aadar Mallik aces the role of Deep’s perennially stoned friend, it's Jasmeet Singh Bhatia, their quirky broker who adds much of the comedic relief with his jugadu ideas. The screenplay and dialogue team that includes Raghav Raj Kakkar, Kashyap Kapoor, Bikas Ranjan Mishra and Gaurav Sharma, did a fine job of balancing the screenplay between comedy and drama. Our Verdict:We give Comedy Couple a thumbs-up rating and add it to our binge-worthy list. The movie is out on ZEE5 and you can start streaming it right here. View the full article
  19. If there's one celebrity who doesn't fret at the sight of repeating outfits often, it has to be Saif Ali Khan. Most of the tinsel town actors are hardly seen wearing the same ensemble, but, we have someone like Saif, who doesn't mind being papped in the same look. But despite that, he knows how to raise the style stakes with his fashion game. Most of you must have seen Saif wearing his favourite white pyjamas often. Be it for grocery shopping, at the airport or casually hanging out, these pants make a statement, each time he is spotted wearing them. Let's take a look at how Saif has elevated his outfit, wearing these white pyjama in different ways and well, never failed to steal to our attention. 1. Adding More Relaxed Vibes© Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Recently, Saif was spotted wearing his favourite long, white pants with a basic T-shirt. This combination is quite tricky to pull, due to the fabric and fit of the T-shirt. But on the other hand, the Nawab has pulled it off effortlessly. Add to that, his blue espadrilles, a stacked brown bracelet and funky eye-glasses, make the look worth taking notes from. 2. Outfit That Befits A Nawab© Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The pyjama pants are so versatile that they double up as a sartorial traditional style as well that can be paired with long kurtas - case in point, Saif's look when he wore the same pants with a white kurta to the airport. This is one of the classiest ensembles we have seen on him. The outfit has an understated finesse to it and therefore also fits his physique, making him look more royal than he already is. 3. Subtle Summer Breeze© Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Indianwear shouldn't be restricted to occasions as the traditional garb can be styled in several fashionable ways that you can reach out to. Kurtas, in sombre hues and lightweight fabric, for example, linen can make for a great addition. Avoid wearing them with denim and check out how Saif has worn the serenity blue kurta with white pants, and classy, brown oxfords and follow suit. 4. Raising The Eccentricity Factor © Viral Bhayani Even when he is dressed in something as basic as pyjamas, Saif always manages to turn heads somehow. There was a time when the actor conveniently worked the same pyjamas in a mismatched manner, a way in which we would dread to step outside. He wore it with a quirky, blue T-shirt and coupled it with a pair of sneakers. The way he managed to give it a sartorial edge, makes us only marvel at his style. View the full article
