  • Luv ka The End

    Cast: Shraddha Kapoor, Taha Shah, Archana Puran Singh, Errol Marks, Sreejita De
    Directed by Bumpy
    Rating: ** 1/2

    Bubblegum romance in Hindi films has finally come of age. So, teens will still be teens but they've grown up with a healthy appetite for Southpark and Simpsons. Consequently, apart from turning their brains into pudding, this has made them more resilient to emotional turmoil and 'moving on' after a bitter break-up is as easy as opening a can of soda. And this attitudinal change is just what this film tries to portray.

    If you haven't figured it out yet, 'Luv ka The End' is not a hate story but a pun on the character's name, Luv Nanda (Taaha Shah) whose girlfriend Rhea (Shraddha Kapoor) discovers his two-timing ways and decides to script his end. And Rhea is assisted by her two friends, Gollu (Errol Marks) and Sonia (Sreejita De) in planning and executing her masterplan to kick Luv's butt. And what spans out over the night before Rhea's 18th birthday, takes us on a hilarious

  • Deepika warns Mallya Jr

    Well, when Ranbir and Deepika split, there were rumours that she was very possessive about him and that eventually led to them calling it quits. Is Deepika repeating the same mistake again? While she might have decided to keep her relationship status with Siddharth Mallya under wraps but that's not stopping her from being insecure about him.

    Check this video to find out if Mallya Jr was trying to make Deepika jealous or is Deepika being clingy?

    You can also read about their very public kiss here.

  • The prospect of getting horrified in three-dimension could be promising. But Indian horror films have rarely gone beyond chalk-faced spirits in Halloween costumes grunting like death-metal vocalists. Here you have just that, in 3D. And the most interesting thing that pops out of the screen is one character's nose. And as incredulous as it may sound, you can actually count the blackheads and even join them to form a shape, if you will.

    The story is about Rehan (Mahaakshay Chakraborty) who has just returned from the US. Appropriate look: squirrel hairdo, leather jacket, neck scarf: check. He's headed to Ooty to sell off a family property (which is haunted), so appropriate expression: bewildered: double check. In fact he probably rehearsed the expression so well that his forehead is crinkled even in one of his intimate scenes.

    Once he reaches the haunted house, Glen Manor, he is welcomed by a sound similar to Hard Kaur clearing her throat mixed with rodents making love. And if this

  • Drive Out Your Confusion Over Buying A Car

    Recently, I met this guy who has been unnecessarily worked up about buying a car. While talking to him in this regard, I realised that he is just one of many others who is feeling confused or anxious about buying a car. Guys, feelings such as these are a normal part of the car buying process. Take a deep breath and relax, here are some things that may help you make your choice easier.

    1. Do you really need a car?

    The first question you should ask yourself is why do you need a car right now. Isn't it absurd to drive to work when almost every office provides employees with transportation facilities? (The trend now is cycling to work).  Do you need a car for your regular shopping trip to a supermarket that is just two minutes away from home? When we travel long distances we mainly use buses or trains. Occasionally you can even hire a car. So why do you need a car? I'm not discouraging you, but think twice and convince yourself about the necessity for a car.

    2. Should you buy a new or

  • The Indian automobile industry has been on top gear ever since the complete de-licensing in 1991. Even when the global auto industry went into reverse gear in 2009, the Indian industry bucked the trend and is expected to become the world's third largest automobile market by 2030.

    In India, automobile jobs have been a catalyst of major employment for quite sometime. It is one or the main sectors to provide jobs to qualified people in manufacturing industries, production plants, service centres, govt transport corporations, private transport companies, insurance companies, motor vehicle departments and so on. Globalisation and robust growth of auto industry have resulted in abundant opportunities for automobile engineers abroad, too. Well, like any other organisation, automobile sector also offers plenty of employment opportunities including even receptionists and office boys. We're not going to discuss all that junk here, but some of the leading and promising careers in the industry

  • She called her a 'Kali Billi' on the sets of 'Ajnabee' and her then boyfriend John Abraham 'expressionless'.
    She retorted by saying 'she has too many expressions'.

    Who are these two who seems to be fighting like they are in middle school? None other than Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu.

  • Creative people are often written off as people with limited understanding or interest in the financial aspect of any business. This notion is openly rubbished by Ashish Patil, Business and Creative Head — Y Films, the Youth Films Division at Yash Raj Films Pvt. Ltd. Most would have heard of his latest release, Luv Ka The End, that he has written and produced and he's busy writing two other films that he would be producing as well for the same banner this year.

    What Ashish did before Y Films

    Clearly, Ashish didn't appear out of thin air. With 17 years of experience in the media and entertainment business, he started his career writing copy for Contract Advertising and due to pressure to "get a real job" he went to Business School to major in Marketing. His love for creative brought him back to advertising and account planning at SSC&B Lintas where he handled a range of clients covering a 3rd of the agency's billings — from FMCG's, Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Durables to Alcohol and

  • Bollywood is famous for trying to imitate classic Hollywood flicks into the Indian context. The end result is sometimes magical, but more often than not, it is just a confused remake that causes nothing but a massive headache to the moviegoer.

    But, I must mention some of the better remakes that I have watched. I remember watching the Will Smith starrer 'Hitch' and loving it. When it was remade into 'Partner', it might not have done well at the box office, but I certainly thought it was a good masala entertaining movie.

    Also spare a thought for 'MunnaBhai MBBS'. Now a classic Bollywood flick, it was copied from the Hollywood classic 'Patch Adams'. Both were beautiful.

    This following story from Y! Lifestyle gives you 10 'remade' movies that completely flopped, not only at the box office, but also with critics and fans alike. But, it's not just that. These are simply BAD remakes.

  • Meet the Royal Wedding car

    All eyes were on Prince William as he arrived at the Westminster Abbey, resplendent in a red tunic of the Irish Guards and accompanied by Prince Harry. But certainly there were a lot of eyes that were stuck on the Bentley State Limousine that carried the groom, one of the most exclusive cars by virtue of being the only one ever made.

    Designed with input from the Queen herself, Prince Phillip and the head chauffeur, this bespoke limo ensures it's perfect for the Royal family's exacting standards.

    Understandably, details of this one-off limo are scant. Three feet longer, 10 inches taller, and six inches wider than a standard Bentley Arnage, it is powered by a twin-turbocharged, 6.75-litre V8 Engine that has been modified from Bentley's Arnage R version to produce 400 hp (300 kW) and 616 lb•ft (835 N•m) of torque. Maximum speed is 130 mph (210 km/h). It is equipped with broad coach doors that open to the rear almost 90 degrees.

    The car has been given armoured bodywork and glass, a

    Cast: Lara Dutta, Vinay Pathak

    Directed by Shashant Shah

    Rating: ***

    Films have always capitalised on misfit jodis for generations. From 'Beauty and the Beast' to 'Laurel and Hardy', one has observed that painfully different people collectively make great cinema. There is just something about every 'ugly' that drives every 'pagli' insane and capturing just that makes a great popcorn watch.

    Our unarguably disparate couple here include Mr 'Buffoon bhaisaab' aka Manu Gupta (Vinay Pathak), a saree trader from Chandni Chowk and Mrs 'La-di-da behenji' aka Mihika Mukherjee (Lara Dutta), an investment banker with a penchant for vanity. The two are thrown together as their flight from Mumbai to Delhi is diverted to Jaipur and their journey to reach their final destination becomes an unending yet delightful trip.

    Manu is man of thousand words and each and every one of them is politically incorrect and usually shamelessly intrusive, if not offensive. While Mihika is a selectively social,
