While things have changed rapidly this year as far as air travel is concerned, I still am truly inspired as far as air travel is concerned. Other than being simply able to go from point A to point B, air travel helps to fulfill dreams of travel to far off places.
I have always loved and been inspired to try different cuisines. And this is what I did when I went last year to New York.
Road trips have always been my idea of exploring a country and definitely inspirational. And when I got a chance to do the same during my trip to the US East Coast, it was definitely fun unlimited.
I have always loved sitting by the sea and hearing the sound of the waves hitting the shore. It’s definitely up there as among the most peaceful things to do. It inspires you to think so many things and dream so many dreams.
Most people travel because they want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. However, there’s a small percentage – mostly youngsters in their 30s – that are actually chasing the hustle and bustle. They enjoy the agglomeration, the noise, the music, and the fun part of night activities.
The world is packed by fascinating travel destinations with exciting night-life. Spectacular cabarets, clubs, pubs, pool parties and live shows abound in the following cities. Check them out and plan the trip of a lifetime.
Directed by Ram Madhvani and starring Sonam Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Yogendra Tiku and Shekhar Ravijani (special appearance), Neerja is a biopic of Neerja Bhanot, the senior flight purser on the ill-fated Pan Am Flight 73.
Pan Am Flight 73 was to be a routine flight from Mumbai to New York via Karachi and Frankfurt. While the Mumbai – Karachi leg passed off without incident, four terrorists hijacked the plane as soon as it landed in Karachi and took everyone hostage. The rest of the flick deals with how Neerja and her fellow colleagues helped almost all the passengers escape.
‘Prisoner Jailor Prime Minister’ is Tabrik C’s first novel. He is a political enthusiast, entrepreneur and perfumer. His novel is a political thriller which deals with one man’s journey across countries to confront inner and outer demons out to wreck havoc on India.
The blurb goes like this –
“India is on the edge as a subversive internal revolt against the constitution, and the threat of jehadi terror of an unthinkable level, are looming on the horizon.
Ringing Shiva’s damaru in and out of the Parliament, a sudden turn of karma catapults outsider Siddhartha Tagore – a conflicted genius, music maestro and prodigal son, with forceful views on China and Pakistan into national prominence as the head of the Opposition Alliance and finally as the newly elected Prime Minister of a disturbed nation.
But buried secrets are being resurrected and threaten to expose the past. Twisted within the double helix of menacing politics and hidden lust, ‘Prisoner Jailor Prime Minister’ is a scorching account of Siddhartha Tagore’s fascinating journey from Harvard to 7 Race Course Road.
Scripted and directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers is the sixth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. The flick has been in the news for over two years for its action, special effects and the galaxy of stars like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johannson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel Jackson etc. Does it work?
Loki (Tom Hiddleston), an exiled Norse God takes the Tesseract, a source of high energy potential and uses his powers to control the minds of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard). He is on a mission to destory the Earth. Nick Fury (Samuel Jackson), director of the peacekeeping organization SHIELD recruits Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Captain America (Chris Evans) to form the Avengers and stop Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) brother, Loki from destroying the planet. They are ably supported by Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson). The rest of the movie deals with how they manage to save the Earth from Loki and his Chitauri Fleet.
This looks to be a season for rom-coms. Directed by a first timer – Anu Menon and starring Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari in lead roles, London Paris New York (LPNY) didn’t really sound attractive on paper. But its fresh trailers and fresh pairing coupled with the romantic feel of the three cities managed to capture the attention of the public. Does it live up to the expectations?
LPNY is the story of Nikhil Chopra (Ali Zafar) and Lalitha Krishnan (Aditi Rao Hydari) and their journey across three of the most beautiful cities on the planet across a time span of more than 5 years. Both of them meet by chance at London Heathrow and as luck would have had it, they spend an entire day together. The day is enough to let a few sparks fly between them. But then its another 2 years before they meet again this time in Paris and there the real truth comes out on what exactly happened in the interim. The meeting lasts again just for a day! The finale is played out in New York.
The plot isn’t really anything to talk about. Love happening over a period of 3 days across continents, across years is a bit too much to take! But then what makes this movie work is the characters. It’s not Ali Zafar or Aditi Rao you are seeing on screen. It’s Nikhil Chopra and Lalitha Krishnan. They are like any couple going around. The instances when they fight, patch up, laugh, smile, cry; all seem straight out of real life. Any couple would associate themselves with the sequences.
The narrative is a bit slow. But the energy and vivaciousness of both the characters keeps the interest alive throughout. The London and New York sequences are the best while the Paris one is a bit out of place.
The songs which are such a key component of a rom-com are very much in sync with the flavour of the movie. Ali Zafar, the composer, lyricist and the singer for almost all of the songs has created a pretty well rounded musical score. “Vo Dekhnay Mein” and the title track stand out.
He can act. He can sing. He can write the lyrics. He can compose songs. He can dance. What can he not do? Ali Zafar delivers an amazing performance. He looks good and manages to break the audience into guffaws with his witty one – liners. His outburst during the climax is another proof of his acting prowess. Aditi looks beautiful particularly in the London and New York sequences. She aptly complements Ali in comic, romantic and even intense sequences.
Go for it with your loved one. You will come out with a smile :).
