The hobby of backpacking is slowly picking up in India. And so are relatively cheap and fancy hostels across India. All major tourist destinations in India have at least five different hostels travellers can choose from. One of them is Zostel – which claims to be India’s first branded chain of Hostels. I stayed for a month in the capital of India, New Delhi, in one of these hostels. No, it wasn’t Zostel. I won’t reveal the name. Read on to find out why. My reason for visiting Delhi was an interesting one as well. You’d think that considering the…

When all the lights and the music and the people fade away, You look around to see who is by your side, who’s really stayed. For a minute you think that no one is there, “No one is by my side, no one really cares.” But then some people show you that that’s not true, They’ll stick by your side even when you’re blue. On the days when you can’t manage a smile, They’ll try to put you together like a broken tile. They’ll listen to all the worries in your head, So that you don’t toss…

The tenth edition of The Jaipur Literature Festival was about honing the art of writing, new authors and ancient stories. I walked downstairs with a copy of Free World’s in my hands, and waited for my Uber. In front of me was a familiar looking face with his eyes already focused on a book. It was Dr Jon Wilson. This is the beauty of the Jaipur Literature Festival; it brings bibliophile, new and acclaimed writers, historians, Booker Prize nominees and a feeling of inspiration that comes with all of them together on a single platform. The Jaipur Literature Festival completed a…

There was a woman in the theater last night who kept laughing during the film. Either she had a really humorous friend or she was really enjoying the relentless violence and excessive stabbing. Logan is directed by James Mangold. This the last film where Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart play the roles of Wolverine and Charles Xavier. James Mangold previously directed The Wolverine in 2013 and that movie did a good job at telling a story of a broken down Wolverine who has lost all his ties with humanity. Since then, fans have been waiting for an R-Rated (Adult Rated) Wolverine…

The last time Vishal Bhardwaj directed a film (Haider), he resurrected Shahid Kapoor’s career and made us all realize that you can even make Shakespeare look cool with the right amount of passion and creativity. Before any of the promotional material for this film was released I was extremely excited to watch these two work again. All I knew about it was that it was a war movie starring Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan. But once the first trailer was released I realized that this movie is not what I expected it to be and that maybe dropped my…

This movie is a follow up to the 2013 sleeper hit Jolly LL.B which starred Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani, and was directed by Subhash Kapoor.

This film is also written and directed by Subhash Kapoor and follows a similar plotline. Akshay Kumar plays a lawyer’s assistant who through a series of events ends up representing a…

A lot of times, I find myself wishing that I could throw the person I’m texting and his/her phone from the terrace of my building. Have you ever been in a situation where the person you are messaging is an absolute disaster to text? I’m sure you have and the worst part is, they never change. They are a unique breed of people who are happy being terrible at the art of texting. There are various types of ‘Terrible Texters’ and in this article, I’ll show you the few types of these texters I have encountered in my few years…

I’ve been hearing things and talking about this movie since late 2013. The idea of an 80s style gangster movie with Shah Rukh Khan at the centre of it really excited me and after he made the same movie thrice from Chennai Express to Dilwale, the wait for this movie became unbearable. I really wanted him to be good and finally deliver something that isn’t a parody of itself or so comically deficient that only a halfwit could laugh at it. I was really happy to see this film. Even if I think he can do better, this movie is…

 Mani Ratnam has been absent from Bollywood for the past 7 years. Does this movie make for a good comeback? This movie is a remake of the film OK Kanmani which came out in 2015 and did pretty well in South India. This film is a remake of that movie with Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in leading roles. Shaad Ali was brought on to direct this movie and he’s directed movies like Saathiya in the post and most recently he directed Kill Dil. OK Jaanu is a story about a couple who decide to live together for a…
