  1. You can call me lazy or even a home bird but hey, I am just a girl who loves watching some great content in the comfort of her home, especially now with some path-breaking shows we get to stream online! I mean hello, what is the point of troubling your body when you can get access to 24/7 good quality entertainment at home, right? Well, for couples, date nights are slowly turning into binge-watching nights, all thanks to the amazing content that we get to see online nowadays. There is no denying that these online web series are introducing the masses to some quality content - realistic plots, empowering cast and stellar production design. From production quality, acting to the real hero of the story, the script, Indian web series are a force to reckon with. And one such show we simply cannot wait to start binge-watching is MX Original Series 'Thinkistan'. Based on advertising agencies, Thinkistan is directed by veteran ad filmmaker N. Padmakumar where he brings his real-life experiences to reel life. The show is set in the 1990s, and features powerful performers like Mandira Bedi, Satyadeep Misra and Vasuki in pivotal roles. It is a true depiction of the fast-paced lives people lead in the world of advertising, and showcases harsh realities of everything you thought you knew about the domain. The premise of the show follows the graphs of two contrasting characters slugging it out in the seductive, mad world of advertising. Amit (essayed by Naveen Kasturia) is a Hindi speaking junior copy writer who comes from Bhopal while English trainee copywriter Hema (Played by Shravan Reddy) is a suave, well-read metropolitan. Amit and Hema represent a divide caused by language and social class that is seen in India, till date. The plot is dynamic and compelling, and the characters are convincing. This is one show that will make you think, question, relate, and most importantly, have a great time! From corporate politics, catfights, unrealistic deadlines, to out-of-turn promotions and more, this is one show that is uber relatable and we cannot wait to start streaming it. To watch the first episode of this exciting series, click here.
  2. Netflix has been at the forefront of streaming video content for consumers and is actively looking to make the experience even better. At first, the company rolled out 4K and HDR support for many of their originals and now, the company is investing in another experiential feature. © Unsplash Netflix has announced that the company is bringing "studio quality” sound for content on its platform that will enhance the overall experience of a viewer. The company is increasing the audio bitrate up to 640 kbps on devices that support 5.1 surround sound and up to 768 kbps for Dolby Atmos. The audio quality will be adaptive similar to how video quality adjusts according to your internet speed. There is a catch though, the high-quality audio will only be available for Premium Subscribers. © Unsplash According to Netflix, “Our high-quality sound feature is not lossless, but it is perceptually transparent. That means that while the audio is compressed, it is indistinguishable from the original source. Based on internal listening tests, listening test results provided by Dolby, and scientific studies, we determined that for Dolby Digital Plus at and above 640 kbps, the audio coding quality is perceptually transparent. Beyond that, we would be sending you files that have a higher bitrate (and take up more bandwidth) without bringing any additional value to the listening experience.” These changes were inspired by a viewing session with the Duffer Brothers, where they were left unimpressed during a screening of 'Stranger Things' Season 2. Since then, Netflix has improved the bitrate for the show to meet expectations of audiences and the Duffer Brothers.
  3. **SPOILER ALERT** With less than four days to go for probably the biggest movie of the decade, speculations and wild theories have been making headlines day in and out. While some ideas have a realistic feel to them, others are straight out bizarre and make no sense whatsoever. And some of the restless Marvel Cinematic Universe fans could not resist the temptation to watch the three-minute long movie footage that was leaked by one of the Marvel Studios employees last week. But not us. Not us. So, while keeping in mind our loyalty towards the Marvel Comics and the Cinematic Universe, here are five things that you must expect when you watch 'Avengers: Endgame'. Two Fights Against Thanos Based on the millions of trailers put out by the YouTube channel of Marvel Studios, it is pretty much evident that in the 3 hour 2 minute of screen time, the audience will get to watch two wars being carried out Captain America and the rest of the earth's mightiest heroes. While the first one will be unplanned, emotional and hurried, the second would clearly follow a well structured plan. Someone Gets Badly Injured In The First Half Of The Movie Taking an educated guess here but we believe with the wounds of losing one half of the universe with Thanos quick snap, the Avengers try to take him down with the help of Captain Marvel who believe she can take him on, especially when her powers basically come from one of the Infinity Stones. But underestimating the Mad Titan leads the team to lose an integral part of themselves, someone who gets thrashed and absolutely dominated by Thanos just like Hulk was in the initial moments of Infinity War. Unable to carry on fighting, they must be taken back to the Avengers headquarters. Time Lapse Based on the length and colour of Natasha Romanoff's hair, it is pretty much obvious that the events of Endgame will span between two to ten months during which a lot of new developments take place, previously misplaced characters return home and new plans to eliminate Thanos are thought about. Somebody Dies (For Good) As the title suggests, 'Endgame' refers to a Chess move in which the player must sacrifice one of his most crucial Chess pieces in order to get an upper hand over his opponent. Maybe during the final fight against the Mad Titan, one of the leading characters like maybe Hawkeye will get into a bit of trouble and someone will jump in the middle of the attack and help his partner out of trouble while giving up his own life. Big New Character At The End Endgame can not finish without the introduction of at least one Marvel character to continue with the franchise and the universe along with. There are a lot of talk about the introduction of someone really powerful and not a habitant of the earth, who has had some sort of a rivalry with Thanos due to his previous profession of visiting planets and eliminating half their population. Someone like Adam Warlock. Other characters who people think and hope to see in the end of the movie include Professor X, Rest of the X-Men, and these guys.
  4. How would you spend your final hours if death was imminent? Would you eat the finest of the meals or get drunk, spend time with your friends or have *** because who knows what tomorrow holds? Well, before you tread ahead, let us tell you this post is dark and full of spoilers. The second episode of 'Game Of Thrones' season 8 aired this morning and among the list of things that surprised us was Arya-Gendry's lovemaking scene. Right before the scene, she was sitting with The Hound and realized that she doesn't want to spend her final hours (if they are her final hours) contemplating things or getting drunk and miserable. And here's the thing: Arya has really evolved over the seasons and especially after her training with the faceless man, her onscreen presence tried to emulate the qualities of a calculative assassin. But we've seen baby Arya draw a better bow than Bran in the first episode, we've seen her grow and fight the lady stereotype thrusted upon her. So seeing her grow up and have human desires was a little surprising. Here's what Twitter had to say about it. Stuff we didn't know we needed! ARYA STARK GETTING DOWN IS THE MOMENT WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR AND DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT. #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/nsa78rw1yG — G (@GeeInSpace) April 22, 2019 Yeah, even we weren't, TBH!

  5. Karan Johar's magnum opus ' Kalank' opened today and while the movie looked like a beautiful, aesthetic (but heavily inspired from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's works) watch, the majority of the reaction from the audience today has been quite 'meh'. Kalank review - story - fully bakwas, screenplay - dull, music - routine Overall not worth watching @karanjohar â­ star... — Pooja singh (@filmireviewji) April 15, 2019 #Kalank Review : Headache Guranteed..

A few people loved it for the cinematography and the plot, while for others, watching the beautiful Madhuri Dixit on screen was reason enough. Jus saw #Kalank at d screening in presence of the cast. One more reason to watch it is for @MadhuriDixit And the grace she brings to celluloid. Her scene with @duttsanjay N @Varun_dvn is epic. The bollywood masala movie buffs will love it #kalankreview pic.twitter.com/zoSwUDhjB0 — KARAN SINGH CHHABRA (@karan_chhabra) April 16, 2019 Jus saw #Kalank with d cast. Loved it for 1.

Kalank is like Game of Thrones and Avengers Endgame. Please watch it in theaters ð#KalankReview — Varunardo DiCaprio (@Varunardo) April 17, 2019 Nevertheless, if a good cinematic view and watching your favourite stars are good enough reasons for you to watch 'Kalank', then you should catch it soon.
  6. It's been 4 years since I cut the cord and if you're looking to switch from traditional TV to streaming content, you will probably need a streaming device for your TV. Yes, you can watch content on your smartphone but nothing really beats the big screen. I personally own almost every possible streaming device that you can buy in India, in every room. If you are looking for a streaming device for your room, look no further than this list: 1. Apple TV © BCCL It's probably our go-to streaming box that supports every App out there. As a part of the Apple ecosystem, you get access to thousands of applications on Apple's App Store. Apart from applications, Apple TV can also support casual gaming and with Apple Arcade on its way, you will be able to play console-level games on this device. The Apple TV plays host to every essential app such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and Hotstar. Apple is also launching its own video streaming service which you can read more about here. You can even get the 4K version if you own a 4K television. 2. Google Chromecast/Ultra © BCCL Chromecast is by far our favourite casting device that can take care of every streaming need. You can even mirror your Google Chrome tabs if you want to stream content from third-party sources. In fact, some of the video players on websites have direct native support for Chromecast. Applications such as Netflix, YouTube, and Hotstar can also stream content directly to Chromecast via your smart device or the Chrome browser. It even supports Google Assistant which is a nifty feature to have if you want to stream content effortlessly. Even though Google doesn't sell Chromecast Ultra officially in India, you can still get your hands on one through unofficial channels. It supports 4K streaming across all applications. 3. Amazon Fire TV © Amazon It's probably our least favourite streaming device on our list as we find the operating system clunky and slow. It does not have native support for YouTube, which is a big negative point for us. The original FireStick TV's remote is also notorious for draining out batteries extremely quickly. Make sure you always have spare batteries or rechargeable batteries handy. In terms of content, FireStick TV does have native support for Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Hotstar. You can even use Kodi to manage your own library if you know what you're doing. There's also a 4K version available to buy which takes the viewing experience up by a notch. 4. Nvidia Shield TV © Nvidia Nvidia Shield is a device that is focused on streaming video but also appeals to gamers who own an Nvidia GPU. Nvidia Shield TV supports 4K resolution and HDR streaming based on the Android TV platform. You can play games from Android's app store or stream your PC games over WiFi. For 4K streaming, it supports all the major OTT services besides Hotstar.
  7. The year was 1992. The US men's basketball team was pretty much swatting its opponents away. USA took on Croatia for the gold medal match and won by a 32-point margin. That side in the years to come, came to be known as the Dream Team and truth be told, it had some big names. The team had the likes of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin among others. But one man drew a lot of attention and already had a budding career with Chicago Bulls in the NBA. That man was Michael Jordan. In 8 games, he averaged nearly 15 points and by the time he retired, would leave a legacy behind to be proud of. © Getty Images 32,292 points, 6672 rebounds and 5633 assists speaks a lot of his ability on the court. He also averaged over 30 points per game. When one hears his name, the memory of him flying in the air to make a basket stands out. But this is not the story of his legacy, it is the impact he made on that day in 1992 in the mind of a 6-year old boy who was, well, still getting to understand the world around him. Yours truly was discovering this new sport where one had to put the ball in the basket and here was this player who was stealing his imagination. I actually owe a lot to basketball. In my school days, while I was more into cricket, basketball was the sport that I played to keep fit. In fact, while it may sound a little too much of a stretch, I even owe my very late growth spurt to the sport. But enough about all that, back to why Jordan was so important in my life. © Getty Images Growing up in the 1990s, particularly in India, one did not have much access to sports like nowadays as far as information was concerned. There was no digital media where we could get updates just like that. Back then, the newspaper, TV and radio were our only options. NBA matches would be telecast late at night as they were being played right across the world, and the odds of staying up late in the school days was out of the question. Still, the fan in me would not give up. Occasionally I would sneak into the living room and watch with a low volume when Jordan was playing. It paid off. I got to see him win the NBA championship with the Bulls in 1996, 1997 and 1998. Not to mention being part of the All-Star from 1996 to 1998 and 2002 to 2003. Sometimes I do wonder, what if Jordan was playing now and that too in his prime? We sure would have loved to see him take on the likes of LeBron James. But when all is said and done, Jordan is the reason I started playing and watching the game, to begin with. It all began on that day in 1992. It was a pleasure to watch him on the court and the inner child in me counts himself lucky. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you Michael Jordan, for making me fall in love with the basket, the ball and the court.
  8. One would think twice before getting or even attempting to get into a battle of words with human lexicon Shashi Tharoor. The amazing man can put a lock on anyone's tongue with the amount of vocabulary knowledge his brain has and his language skills are probably sharper than an IELTS examiner. © Twitter However, ace comedian Hasan Minhaj, who is currently enjoying mega-fame with his show on Netflix, attempted to indulge in a battle of words with Mr Tharoor, and to our surprise, the Congress leader lost! Well, in his defence, it was a millennial slang war but whatever, watching the video is a hilarious visual delight. View this post on Instagram I hope @shashitharoor starts talking like this in parliament. A post shared by Hasan Minhaj (@hasanminhaj) on Mar 19, 2019 at 7:24am PDT From the word 'thicc' to the word 'snacc' , Dr. Tharoor is amused beyond measure as he willingly gives up on the game but his sporting spirit and innocent ignorance of these millennial slangs makes the video more fun to watch.
  9. A lot has been said about 'Captain Marvel' in the last few weeks. Would it have been received in a much more positive way if it was a part of the MCU plan from the start? Probably. Would it have been considered a breakout movie for female superheroes if 'Wonder Woman' hadn't come out 2 years ago? Probably. For some, 'Captain Marvel' was nothing more than filler content from the start and trying to convince them otherwise is futile. But, the fact remains, if you've invested in 20 MCU movies over the last 10 years or so, then why not invest in one more before watching, what will possibly be, the highest grossing movie of all time? So, if you haven't watched the movie yet and are willing to understand my reasoning with an open mind then read on. Even if you've watched the movie and just want a few reasons to justify why 'Captain Marvel' can't be missed, read on. But, if you've already made up your mind about 'Captain Marvel' not being worth it, then go watch 'Avengers: Endgame' when it's out. You'll feel like you've missed something in between. There's no coming back from that, though. You can only watch 'Endgame' for the first time once. © Disney Backstory The only reason you're invested in the Avengers as a team and the MCU as a franchise is because you've seen all your favourite characters develop on the big screen. Almost all of the superheroes (barring the Hulk) have received multiple solo movies where we get to learn more about them without having to worry about the collective. That's something 'Captain Marvel' lacks right now. No one knows who she is or what she can do. Yes, a two-hour movie is not going to allow for as much character development as a couple of films or a trilogy. But, it's way better than nothing. Can you imagine Captain Marvel just showing up and kicking ass in 'Avengers: Endgame?' Everyone would have been like, "who is she? If she's so powerful, why haven't we heard of her before?" And most importantly, "where has she been for the last 20 movies?" (If you want to know all the possible reasons Captain Marvel was missing from the last 20 movies, then let me know in the comments and I'll write a separate article on that.) To get answers to all of these questions you'll have to watch 'Captain Marvel.' There are no two ways about it. © Disney Being That Know-It-All Marvel Fan We all know that one person who claims to know everything about everything in the MCU. I'm talking to that person directly right now. Imagine not knowing how the Avengers Initiative got its name or how Nick Fury lost an eye. One of the most entertaining parts of any MCU movie are the easter eggs. There are so many of them. Yes, some of them are integral to the plot and can't be ignored but there are others that don't make much of a difference apart from getting a few oohs and aahs from the audience. Imagine watching 'Avengers: Endgame' and the guy beside you says, "I know how Captain Marvel got her powers" and you're just sitting there going, “whaaatttt…” Not going to be good for your reputation, right? There are quite a few questions answered in 'Captain Marvel' so you should give it a watch. You do want to retain the title of Mr Know-It-All when it comes to the MCU, right? © Disney Post-Credits Scene Marvel is the only production house who has figured out how to get the audience to stay glued to their seats until the very last credit has shown up on screen – post-credit scenes. Yes, we look forward to them almost as much as we do the movies themselves. There have been a few let downs in between with inconsequential post-credits scenes and it makes sense that the audience didn't expect much from 'Captain Marvel' as the credits rolled on to the screen. But, as usual, Marvel blew our socks off with just 5 seconds or so. Those 5 seconds are perhaps the reason 'Avengers: Endgame' will become the highest grossing movie of all time. Yes, those 5 seconds! You've probably watched the latest 'Endgame' trailer already. so you already have some more information on the movie but I'm not going to spoil anything for you if you haven't. Go watch the movie and then the trailer. It's absolutely worth it. © Disney It's A Great Nick Fury Origin Story Yeah, I couldn't resist saying it because it's the truth. We might not associate with Captain Marvel because she was just tossed into the mix recently but we know Fury. This is probably as close to a solo film the character will ever get. Do you see anyone complaining? I don't think so. Why? A young Nick Fury is a delight. So, even if you don't care about Carol Danvers, go watch the movie to learn more about Nick Fury. I know I've already said this a few times but, it's worth it. Considering the amount of money the movie is raking in, I don't think there are many who needed reasons to watch it. But, hopefully, for the few remaining 'rebels,' I hope I've been able to give you at least one reason to watch the movie.
  10. The poster of 'Gully Boy' says 'Apna Time Ayega', but millions of his fans have confirmed that Bollywood's livewire aka Ranveer Singh's time has already come. Ranveer Singh's rapping skills were making people go crazy even before the movie had released and now that it has hit the theatres, his fans can't keep calm. Excel Entertainment Bollywood is already in awe of Ranveer's performance in 'Gully Boy' and now people from Hollywood are also fanboying over him. The latest addition to his humongous fanbase is 'The Pursuit Of Happyness' actor Will Smith. View this post on Instagram Behold the Big Williest! ðð¾ @willsmith #legend A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Oct 7, 2018 at 6:27am PDT The same guy who was seen chilling with Ranveer and Karan Johar last year in Mumbai and even drove an autorickshaw during his visit. The same guy who will now be seen in Disney's 'Aladdin' as Genie. Instagram Will Smith took to Instagram to praise Ranveer's performance and said, "Yo Ranveer! Congrats man. I am loving what you doing. Gully Boy". He adds, "I have seen old school hip hop, seen hip hop all over the world. I am loving it. Go get it." Alia Bhatt too posted Smith's message on her Instagram. “ Yo Ranveer congrats man I am loving what you're doing with Gullyboy for me old school hip hop here seeing hip hop all over the world like that I am loving it man congrats “ - Will Smith to Ranveer Singh - OMGGGG!!!!! ð♥ï¸♥ï¸ pic.twitter.com/AzZWjDmZLk — RanveerSingh TBTð (@RanveerSinghtbt) February 16, 2019 Honestly, now we can't wait for Ranveer and Will Smith to have a rap face-off on 'Apna Time Aayega'. Within two days of its release, 'Gully Boy' has reportedly already made Rs. 32 crore at the box office. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, 'Gully Boy' starring Ranveer as Murad is a story about an aspiring rapper and is loosely based on the lives of Mumbai rappers Divine and Naezy.
  11. Ever since the trailer of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' was released, one thing was clear that it's not going to be just another regular Bollywood love story starring Rajkummar Rao and Sonam Kapoor. Yet, people had high hopes and ever higher doubts from this movie and wondered if it will be able to do justice to the sensitive topic it was trying to highlight. © Fox Star Studios The movie finally hit the theatres today and fans are not disappointed at all. Sonam Kapoor, who plays a lesbian in the movie, has done a brilliant job and this is not a fangirl speaking. Her acting is truly impressive. So is Rajkummar Rao's, who pulls off his character with utmost brilliance. © Fox Star Studios Recently, the makers of the film hosted a special screening for their Bollywood friends and the early reviews speak volumes about the efficiency with which the storyline was handled. From her 'Padman' co-star Akshay Kumar, Farah Khan Kunder, Ayushmann Khurrana to Sonam and Rajkummar's fans; celebrities have flooded social media with congratulatory messages applauding the team and the movie.

  12. Now that 4K gaming is widely available thanks to Nvidia's RTX graphic cards, the Xbox One X and Ps4 Pro (upscaled); you need a 4K monitor that compliments your setup. If you are buying a new monitor in 2019, it should be a 4K monitor as some monitors cost as much as its full HD counterparts. 4K monitors can be used not only for gaming but also consume content from services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and others that offer 4K content. 4K monitors are getting as popular as 4K TVs simply because gamers now want an immersive experience. The plus point of having a 4K monitor is that it uses less space, has better refresh rates, better response time and can now be purchased for cheaper. Here are some of the best 4K monitors you can buy in India right now: 1. BenQ EL2870U 28-inch UHD 4K HDR (Rs 32,899) © BenQ BenQ is known for making some of the best gaming monitors and the same can be said for their 4K variants. This particular model has a response time of 1ms, supports HDR content and has a resolution of 3840x2160. It has support for AMD FreeSync Technology which basically aides in better frame rates and prevents screen tearing. It's one of the more expensive monitors from our list but it's definitely worth the price. 2. Acer Predator XB281HK 28-inch UHD 4K (Rs 45,000) © Acer The Acer Predator XB281HK makes it on our list as it's quite similar to the BenQ monitor above but has a bit more aggressive “gaming” look. It's also compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and has a refresh rate of 60Hz. It has a resolution of 3840x2160 and can also be set up vertically. A G-Sync monitor feature is a must-have tool for anyone who games on PC with an Nvidia Graphic Card. 3. LG 24 inch Gaming 4K UHD Monitor (Rs 22,999) © LG Not all 4K monitors need to cost as much as the ones mentioned above. If you are on a tight budget you can always look at alternatives like the LG Ultra HD 4K monitor. It has an IPS panel and is 4-inches smaller than the Acer and BenQ monitors. It also does not have HDR support which is something you may want to sacrifice considering the price it is being offered for. The response time is also set to 5ms which may not be ideal for gaming but its a perfect deal if you like to watch content. 4. Acer KG281K 28 inch 4K Monitor (Rs 24,299) © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This is by far our favourite gaming monitor that also does not break your bank balance. I personally use this monitor for my gaming needs and has all the bell and whistles you want. It costs a bit more than the LG monitor but it is also bigger in size. It has a response time of 1ms, 60Hz refresh rate and has AMD Free Sync Technology. It is probably the most value for money 4K monitor from our entire list. The only issue with this monitor was to do with the speakers as we found them a bit too soft for our liking. 5. Acer Predator Z35P bmiphz (Rs 80,991) © YouTube This is by far the most expensive monitor on our list because it simply has everything you can imagine. It has a 35-inch Curved 1800R UltraWide Screen with 3440 x 1440 resolution. It has a refresh rate of 100Hz which is quite rare for a 4K panel. It has Nvidia G-Sync support. It's a direct import from the U.S. which is why it costs so much but is currently available to buy on Amazon.in
  13. We all know that as soon as a movie releases, a pirated version of it is available online almost immediately. I'm not saying it's right, but it's inevitable. But to fight the piracy of their movie 'Uri', the makers had a brilliant idea - just make a different version of the movie and post it online because it'll be a brilliant lesson that people will never forget. The pirated version online features a normal movie scene transition into the actors talking to the person watching telling them to go to the theatres to see the movie. In the pirated version, Yami Gautam's character says, “Surgical strikes 0400 hours pe start hogi. Unki army ko pata bhi nahin chalega kikya hua.” Then, Vicky's character turns to the camera and says, “Theek usi tarah, jaise iss waqt hum aapke screen mein ghus gaye hain. Aur aapko pata bhi nahin chala.” How freaked out would you be if Vicky Kaushal started talking to you while you're watching his movie? Imagine downloading a 3-4 gb movie and then you're all settled in and ready to watch it, then Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam come on the screen to call you out! Ouch, that's gotta hurt. You'll have to live with the fact that you've just disappointed Vicky Kaushal. A movie about the surgical strike pulling off the greatest surgical strike on piracy, it really was meant to be. The pirated video has been going viral online as soon as people got to know about it. It's honestly is one of the greatest pranks ever and everyone is appreciating and praising it. This is something really amazing didn't expect this haha Really funny ðð — nandinidas (@dasnandini19) January 16, 2019 Everyone's making the same joke. Awesome Surgical Strike on Torrent wala Pirated copies. — Ajit Mishrað®ð³ (@Ajit_Mishra) January 16, 2019 The movie is still in theatres, just go watch it because downloading it online is not even an option anymore.
  14. Porn- the very word itself is enough to grab anyone's attention. So much so, that before the ban on pornographic websites was enforced, half of the top ten websites in the country were porn sites! They even ranked higher in traffic than Twitter, Instagram and Wikipedia. It would be safe to say that the ban hasn't stopped people from watching porn and different tricks are being used to get access. So, Does Watching Porn Affect People Who Are Into Fitness? © Thinkstock Images First things first, if you want to get fit you have to eat according to your goals, train hard and smart and most importantly, be patient and consistent. But if your testosterone levels are low, it would be harder for you to pack on that precious muscle mass as compared to someone who is in the average or above average range. Also, testosterone is the hormone that makes men more manly, as in, the more testosterone your body produces, the more masculine you will be. Now, the question for people who are into leading a fit lifestyle is, does watching porn affect testosterone levels? What Does The Research Say? There has been a lot of research into this matter where the testosterone and other hormones levels and physical performance are evaluated by showing the subjects different types of pictures and videos like photos of food and happy couples to action videos, funny videos, sad videos, and of course, adult videos. The response is checked in terms of whether the participant is neutral to it or does it affect the mood one way or another. Let's Look At The Studies In this study, 12 people who were athletes were shown video clips which were pornographic, sad and aggressive in nature, before making them check their 3 rep squat max, and the results were very interesting. While watching porn did actually boost testosterone levels, on the other hand, testosterone levels decreased and the "aggressive" video clip increased cortisol levels. Finally, when the subjects were asked to do the three-rep squat maxes after viewing the clips, those who had watched porn saw an improvement. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21983238 In this study, 20 young adult males where shown full-length porn movies which boosted their testosterone levels up by a whopping 35 per cent. The increase began around 15 minutes into the film and peaked 60-90 minutes later. This showed an increase in motivation and competitiveness and a decrease in exhaustion. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4001279 Let's do the math here. Assume that your normal testosterone is around 500nh/dl, which is considered to be on the lower side of the spectrum, and you raise your testosterone levels by watching something arousing by around 35% and it remains elevated throughout your workout, that would leave you somewhere around 675nh/dl, which is considered average. So, it won't give you the same effects as sticking a needle up your backside as most of the gym rats nowadays do, but it certainly would make a small difference as the quality of your workouts will go up (heavier weights, more energy, and increased aggressiveness), which is a LOT better than sticking needles filled with synthetic testosterone, which will shut down your natural testosterone production instantly. Almost 80 per cent of all the research done on the subject shows that there is an elevation in testosterone levels when an external stimulus is introduced. What Does It Mean? © YouTube A very important thing to notice here is that all of the improvement in performances occurred when the men did not "finish" their porn viewing session, you know what I mean. If you do finish your session, your performance in the gym will be affected for around two hours or so after you finish “doing it”. So, does this mean that all that extra testosterone will lead to more gains? Difficult to say, as I mentioned above, there are a lot more factors that come into play besides your natural testosterone levels when it comes to building muscle, so don't expect magic but it 'can' help. But who are we kidding? You're going to try it anyway!

  15. "The reason we're successful, darling? My overall charisma, of course." - Freddie Mercury When I was a kid, music was an integral part of my life. So much so, it would play all night and day in my house. Both my parents loved their share of music and invested a lot of their time listening to some tunes from the 60's, 70's & the 80'. While my mother loved her some disco vibes like Abba and Boney M, my father was more inclined towards rock 'n roll, jazz and some blues and swing from the 50's. © Pintrest It was in my early childhood years when he'd installed a new sound system and he played a song on it which stuck with me for life and it was possibly the first song I'd ever heard, or that I can remember. It was Queen's 'Radio Gaga'. Of course, back then I was a little too young to understand the lyrics so I'd just go 'Gaga & Goo Goo' whenever they sang the chorus but as the years progressed, I started hearing a lot more Queen, just so I could go about my day with Freddie's Mercury's perfect 5 octave pitch. Jesus, what a voice it was! Queen has been one of those pitch-perfect bands, emerging from the glam rock scenario in the 70's and becoming a sensation in its time. Although it wasn't a one-man-show kinda band, the front man and the lead singer did make the 'Queen experience' legendary- for himself and, of course, for the band too. From his outfits on stage to his witty comebacks, Freddie did it just about right in the 70's and the 80's and we loved him for the man he was. © BBC His Indian connection comes as no surprise. Yes, he was a Parsi from Mumbai who spent most of his childhood years in India and learnt to play the piano. His official name Farrokh Bulsara is lesser known to people because he chose a different name for himself which did go down in history instead. Now with the release of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on the 15th of November, 2018, we're all geared up to revisit the 70's and the 80's, where Queen literally ruled the land with their lyrical content and music. The movie talks about the band's struggle to stick together, Freddie's ostentatious lifestyle and flamboyancy on and off stage and of course his last days, when he's struggling with a deadly disease. © Twitter Here are some lesser known facts about him, so you can brush up on history's most iconic band, before you go watch the film, which will be out soon, in theatres near you! (1) He Had An Indian Connect As I've already given you spoilers, Freddie Mercury aka Farrokh Bulsara had his roots firmly in India, before he became Britain's legendary rock star. His grandparents were from a town in Gujrat called Bulsar, which is where his last name is taken from. He was sent to St. Peter's boarding school in Panchgani, at the age of 8, where he got his nickname 'Freddie'. He also formed a band back in school with 4 bandmates and he named it 'The Hectics', which became the unofficial school band. He learnt piano in school and was a gifted all-rounder. The quiet-yet talented Mercury received the junior all-rounder trophy when he was just 12! © Freddie Mercury Biography (2) His Voice Was A Record Breaker Freddie's voice was phenomenally different! He had an extraordinary vocal range of nearly 5 octaves, as good as any opera singer and he had a baritone which sang as a tenor, making his voice stand out from the crowd! When some scientists did research on his voice, they figured he had a unique vibrato. His vibrato was actually higher than an opera singer's vibrato. © Twitter (3) He DID Have A GF He was in a long-term relationship in the 70s with his then-girlfriend Mary Austin, who later became his best friend. While with Mary, Freddie used to have *** with other men. When he confessed that he might be bisexual to her, she strongly claimed that he was purely gay! That was the first time Mercury admitted to his sexuality and never hid it from anyone. "The Love of My Life." "All my lovers asked me why they couldn't replace Mary, but it's simply impossible," - Freddie Mercury Before passing away, he left his London mansion and most of his fortune in her name. © Twitter (4) He Was An Artist Too He was an awesome graphic designer and got his degree from Ealing Art College. He, in fact, designed Queen's official logo too. Oh, and he also named the band! "The concept of Queen is to be regal and majestic. We want to be dandy. We want to shock and be outrageous" - Freddie Mercury © Twitter (5) He Snuck Princess Diana Out Yep, you read that right! She was one of the most famous women in the world and she went through great lengths to keep her identity anonymous! So, one night Freddie made her disguise as a 'male model' and took her to a bar in South London and she chilled with him and Kenny Everett, without being recognised, the entire night. Man, what a time to be alive! © Twitter (6) He Was A Party Animal Freddie was known to hit every party in town and get wasted to see the sunrise. You'd often see him party with the best of celebrities in various party zones in London. "Freddie Mercury could out-party me, which is saying something. We'd be up for nights, sitting there till 11 in the morning, still flying high" - Elton John © Twitter (7) He Wrote His No.1 Hit In A Bathtub Please tell me you've heard 'Crazy 'lil Thing Called Love'? The no.1 hit single came to him while he was bathing, in a bathtub in a hotel in Germany and the song came to him in 5 minutes. It was Queen's first no. 1 hit single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. © Pintrest (8) The Famous Song 'Under Pressure' Happened Spontaneously Even if you haven't heard 'Under Pressure' I am sure you've heard 'Ice Ice Baby', written by the American rapper- Vanilla Ice, which was based on the same bassline as Under Pressure. The song came through an impromptu jam between Mercury and David Bowie, and it was a no.1 hit in 1981. © Twitter (9) The Bottomless Mic Became His Trademark At one concert, earlier on into Queen's concert career, he accidentally broke the mic stand on stage and instead of swapping it for a new one, he performed with a bottomless mic, throughout. Later on, he used bottomless mic stands for all his concerts. © Pintrest (10) He Was A Cat-Man I don't mean his secret identity FYI. I mean he loved cats and for a while, he had all of 10 cats! In fact, his favourite was named Delilah and she inspired him to write a song about her (also one of my fav's) in the album Innuendo, the lyrics to which went something like this - "You make me so very happy / When you cuddle up and go to sleep beside me / And then you make me slightly mad / When you pee all over my Chippendale Suite." © Pintrest (11) He Kept The Band Together Queen came very close to breaking up in the 70s when they literally disagreed upon anything and everything. But most band members banked on him for his diplomatic skills and peacemaking capabilities and hence the band actually never broke up, ever. © Twitter (12) He Died Of AIDS Freddie died of severe pneumonia which was induced by AIDS. He was suffering from AIDS since a while and he'd managed to keep it a secret from the world. The only person who knew was Mary Austin. He died a day after he declared he had AIDS and he gave Mary the responsibility of burying his ashes without revealing where she'd bury them. © Twitter Not just the music and entertainment industry in the west, but people in India mourned the greatest rock star's demise. Earlier this year, we had Ranveer Singh gallivanting in Switzerland, donning a complete Freddie Mercury get-up on the streets of Montreux, dancing his heart out to 'I want to break free', in front of Freddie Mercury's statue, built there. Freddie Mercury's legacy will forever stay amidst us and never cease to exist. We still sing like wounded banshee's to Queen's famous- 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and never tire ourselves with the higher pitches and staccato that the song is comprised of! Here's hoping the movie does justice to his life and Queen's musical career. For now, revel in these facts and plug in some Queen to take your mind off the dreary week.
  16. The rumours of rap hero Drake dating Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty have been doing the rounds for quite a while now. He has been following her on Instagram for a while now and never shies away from commenting on her pictures as well. When his super hit 'Kiki Do You Love Me' became a chart buster, it was also hinted by many that maybe Athiya was his 'Kiki'. So while there has been no pictures of the two secretly meeting anywhere or any proof of them dating, the 'Passionfruit' singer made his affection for her quite clear when she recently celebrated her 26th birthday. Drake might be miles away but his gift for Athiya was special beyond any materialistic gestures. He claimed that he watched her recent movie 'Mubarakan'3 times on tour for her birthday!. View this post on Instagram This one was extra special and happy indeed. Thank you for all the love, wishes, and blessings. I truly feel so tremendously grateful and special. â¨ðð±ððð¼ ð¦ To my main people, I love you. You know who you are. PS: 26, be kind ð¤ð»ð¬ A post shared by Athiya Shetty (@athiyashetty) on Nov 5, 2018 at 7:47am PST Even if they ain't dating, isn't that too kind of him? 'Mubarakan' didn't fare too well at the box office but was still a family entertainer movie. Even though this should be a better gift for Arjun Kapoor since he was the lead, it still counts as a wonderful gesture, even if he is just a friend. Well, let's hope if something brews between them, we get to hear from Drake in his next album maybe?
  17. Arguably one of the most popular sports in the world, cricket has continued to enthral fans and produce new sporting heroes over the years. As a kid, many of us have grown up imitating the batting stances and bowling actions of our favourite cricketers in our backyard. From Brian Lara's unique stance to Wasim Akram's bowling stride, youngsters have proudly copied the tools of the trade of the cricketing icons. In a similar incident, a young boy from Pakistani recently took the social media by storm, after he was spotted imitating the bowling action of India's new pace-bowling sensation Jasprit Bumrah. In a recently-shared video on Twitter, the five-year-old kid was seen delivering the ball the way Bumrah does in international cricket. 5 Years Old kid from pak is a big fan of You.. after watching you in the recently concluded Asia cup every time he tries to bowl like him. Anyway, Happy Birthday @virendersehwag Sirð pic.twitter.com/KC8ML3wUgt — Umair Afridi (@afridiomair) October 20, 2018 The tweet further claims that the Pakistani youngster became an ardent fan of the Indian seamer, after watching his exploits in the recently-concluded Asia Cup, that was eventually won by India following their triumph over Bangladesh in the final. "5 Years Old kid from pak is a big fan of You. After watching you in the recently concluded Asia cup every time he tries to bowl like him," the tweet read. As a kid, I remember how I used to copy the actions of my cricketing heroes. ð It's a wonderful feeling to see kids copying my action today.ð#childhoodflashbacks #Grateful #nostalgia https://t.co/ni4Y22aPMH — Jasprit bumrah (@Jaspritbumrah93) October 20, 2018 After the cute video went viral on the social media, Bumrah, too, couldn't stop himself from posting a heartfelt reply while recalling how he used to copy the bowling actions of his cricketing heroes. "As a kid, I remember how I used to copy the actions of my cricketing heroes. It's a wonderful feeling to see kids copying my action today," Bumrah tweeted. Bumrah might have been rested from the ongoing five-match ODI series against West Indies, but there is little doubt over his importance in the Indian team. One of the vital cogs in India's bowling line-up, the right-arm seamer boasts of 143 wickets in 82 international matches across all formats of the game.
  18. We've all seen the biggest Marvel Cinematic Movie ever – 'Avengers: Infinity War', of course – and we all have been personally victimized by the ending, but it's time to get through that painful ending in a new language. The Hindi version of the biggest movie of the year has released today and obviously it's worth a watch. I mean, every Hollywood movie when dubbed in Hindi gets even better, even more hilarious and it's not like Infinity War needed any improvement but everyone needs a little bit of Tony Stark calling Spiderman 'Chhotu'. Here's the entire scene in Hindi: Rocket Racoon gets even sassier in Hindi. If Spider-Man is 'chhotu', then Tony Stark is Gurudev, obviously. This line sounds even better in Hindi, tbh. 'Prithvi ka shutter down hai' is way better than 'Earth is closed today'. 'Daaku aur haseena' is like an almost literal translation but it still sounds better than the original. Here's the Hindi trailer if you haven't seen it yet! When you have funny dialogues, you obviously have some memes about it. 'Infinity War' meets 'Sacred Games'. No one knows! Exactly. Yes, kaun ho? Yep. Anushka makes an appearance, obviously. 'Avengers: Infinity War' is re-releasing in Hindi today, so don't forget to check it out!
  19. Home projectors have come a long way over the past few years. Today's models can handle a wide variety of multimedia content—films, photos, documents, and even games. While 720P projectors are the most commonly seen, there are Full HD as well as 4K variants available as well, depending on your usage. In fact, it has become pretty common in urban cities to actually fix a projector instead of a TV, because it takes up lesser space and offers a bigger screen. Even if we don't consider the domestic usage, these are extremely handy in offices and basically a bare minimum necessity. Given that screening size, output quality, add-on features, and the pricing are the main points that one should consider before buying one, we've listed a few projectors covering every segment for you: 1. BenQ TK800: © BenQ This is among the very few projectors out there that support 4K, and it is pretty much the gold standard. The machine can beam out a projection larger than 100-inch in 4K, covering 8.3 million pixels along with HDR. It even has a special football, cinema, bright and sports mode for the best viewing experience. It has 0.47” single-DMD-chip DLP technology, wherein DLP means Digital Light Processing. Basically, it has a chip made of tiny microscopic mirrors and a spinning colour wheel creating the sharpest image and better response time. It weighs 4.2kg, has a USB port along with two HDMI ports. It also has an inbuilt 5W speaker and an IR receiver on the top and front. Buy it here 2. Epson EH-TW650: © EPSON While the TK800 packs all the cutting edge features, the Epson is built for domestic consumption and is the perfect all-rounder. It isn't heavy on the pocket, and will never disappoint in terms of projection quality. It can beam out sharp Full HD projections via its 3100 lumens lamp and the projection size can be up to 300-inch. It also houses in-built WiFi for quick transfer weighing just 2.7kg. The projector has two HDMI ports along with a 2W in-house speaker. Buy it here 3. BenQ W1050: © BenQ Edging ever closer to the plummeting price of a decent flatscreen TV, the BenQ W1070+ DLP projector offers enough brightness to be used in daylight as well as the all-important Full HD resolution. It delivers brilliant colour performance ensuring spectacular clarity with incredible depth and range. BenQ has incorporated its CinematicColor technology that has 20 combinations of colour wheel angle and coating. It supports HDMI 1.4a mandatory 3D formats, meaning it can project 3D Blu-Ray DVD along with the PS3. It weighs just 2.6kg and comes with a 2W in-house speaker. Buy it here 4. LG PH550: © LG If you want a big screen home entertainment but don't have space, or funds for a large flat panel TV or home cinema projector, then LG's PH550 could be the answer. It supports Full HD projection, has inbuilt WiFi and Bluetooth connection, in-house battery for 2.5 hours of playback and a 550 lumens lamp. It weighs just 650gms and is among the most portable projectors out there. But it here 5.

There's a choice of three brightness modes to suit any environment, from bright daylight to darkened rooms as well. It is ideal for making presentations direct from a laptop, mobile device or DVD player. This one is more suited for office use as it's heavy at 6kg and not intended for portable use. Buy it here 8.

  20. The trailer of Salman Khan's Production film 'Loveratri' starring Salman's brother-in-law Aayush Sharma and newcomer Warina Hussain, has just dropped and it certainly shows Bhaijaan's love for his family. Just some days ago, the teaser of the movie was released and now comes the full trailer. No doubt the debutant couple looks refreshing and share a sizzling chemistry, but the same cannot be said about the drab storyline. © SKF Following the lazy Bollywood mantra, this rom-com is stale, repetitive and B-town's tried-and-tested recipe. © SKF No doubt the trailer is colourful and vibrant and gives us a real festive vibe. In fact, it does make you wanna dance and enjoy the feeling of Navratri. And what can we say about the Darshan Raval's song that is already stuck in our heads? The particular track has its own charm and clearly, is the highlight of the trailer. © SKF The trailer brings us the story of Sushrut (Aayush) from Baroda, who falls in love with an NRI girl (Warina). The two instantly click and there begins their love story. But of course, what love story is complete without its fair dose of obstacles and dard? Soon he realises that she will be leaving India after Navratri, and the rest of the trailer takes us through all the things one must do to win their love. We see Sushrut travelling abroad and doing everything to please the girl and her father (Ronit Roy). Because, why not? © SKF Adding to the story are also small cameos by Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan. The movie also features Ram Kapoor in a pivotal role. © SKF No doubt, Aayush and Warina shine bright and look promising on-screen, but at the same time, we wish the plot had some level of originality. Directed by Abhiraj Maniwala, 'Loveratri' will hit the theatres on October 5.
  21. It is a given that life without the magic of movies sounds like a complete drag. The big on-screen picture often gives us life goals and teaches us the importance of a relationship, as the cinematic bonds do influence our lives in ways more than one can imagine. While love stories are usually the highlight in most plots, there are also films that revolve around the magic of friendship. Some amazing flicks have taught us that one doesn't need to be best friends with the same gender or even the same age or species, but that BFFs can be any two souls on this planet, who have a connection! Be it Mowgli and Bagheera, the gang from 'Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara', Winnie the Pooh and Christopher, or the music band of 'Rock On', movies have shown us that friendship can strike anywhere and with anyone! As Friendship Day inches closer, it's time to celebrate that special bond with your friends. So grab some beer and chips, and spend a lazy day watching these amazing movies and shows with your best friends: 1. Jungle Book A heart-warming story about family, friendship and growing up, 'Jungle Book' is about Mowgli, an orphaned human boy who is guided by his animal guardians Bagheera and Baloo. The movie strikes all the right chords and makes you remember your childhood days. 2. 3 Idiots If there is a movie that defines true friendship and bonding for life, it is Rajkumar Hirani's '3 Idiots'. The movie portrays the friendship of three boys who meet in college and swear to be best friends for life. From their first smoke to their first heartbreaks, they have been through each other's ups and downs together. It's the story of discovering their own paths and reuniting to find their long lost friend. 3. Christopher Robin A movie that we can't wait to watch.
