    Is this the best bollywood song of the decade?

    @Sooda Will we see a best of 2018 thread?
  2. The name would suggest that he's originally from North India. But given @maniac 's hyperbole about the guy, I now tend to believe that Rohit Sharma must be from Telangana.

    I don't follow your example. Was Turkey a German colony? I think most Turks today are children of the Gastarbeiter (guest workers) from the 60s and 70s.
  4. Gandhari should also feature quite high in the list of the righteous ones. She keeps a blindfold to life at an equal level of disability as her husband. And this she does out of her free will. When Duryodhan asks for blessings before the war, her reply is to the tune of " may the righteous side win".
  5. This is so cute. Such over zealous and pretentious display of anger I'll let you in on a little secret. Rohit Sharma isn't Marathi. Most people in Mumbai aren't. But don't let facts affect your narrative.

    Japan’s passion for cleanliness

    I dunno what the Modi government is upto. They must invest a more effort to get Japanese tourists to India. It will be ek teer se do nishaan Exchequer ke daman mein tourist dollars/yen aajayenge aur Bharat Swachch bhi ho jayega.
  7. Deep Das Gupta sounds like a terrible chess program written by a desi coder based out of Hamburg.
  8. Kohli being insecure about another upcoming batsman is figment of your imagination. KL will have to play good cricket for at least another 6-8 years to come close to Kolhi's stature as a batsman and many more years to equal him in mouthing off gaalis on and off the field.
  9. Dhoni is Vidur, and Kohli is Dhritarashtra.

    Can't fault the French. Wish we had long term policy makers like theirs. When they decided to colonize the world, they graded the areas on potential of the populace at football. And this is what they reap. Windfall gain of colonialism. The British on the other hand were very stupid. They colonized the Indian sub continent, the USA/Canada, Malaysia/Singapore and Burma. People who play even worse football than the British themselves.
  11. What exactly is Kohli supposed to be insecure about? Sorry, I didn't understand that bit.

    Man stabbed 16x by eve teasing duo

    This is untrue. How do you conclude this? Not denying that there are lynchings that happen, but your extrapolation is very wild. For every instance of lynching you cite, I could cite a 100 examples where ghair Muslims have gone out of their way to help Muslims in India. The fringe isn't representative of India. It never was, it never will be.

    Man stabbed 16x by eve teasing duo

    Difficult to pin point a cause. My guess is that earlier, society and by extension popular culture were outward looking when solving issues. The stress was always on " oh look how similar we are" etc. Now, people have started to introspect a lot more. Hence that reflects in popular culture too. For example the song Kabira.
  14. Hum ko malum hai jannat ki haqeeqat lekin Dil ko khush rakhne ko 'ghalib' ye khayal achcha hai
  15. Who the hell is Eoin??? This guy should be handed a life ban for having 3 vowels in a row in his name. How does Bhajji even get around pronouncing his name? Very inconsiderate of the ECB.

    Sanju Movie trailer

    ^ Don't think it is being marketed as his biopic. Obviously, it is a highly dramatized, sugar coated, lopsided version of reality with many chapters of his life untouched.. Most people who see the film know that. I do not share your opinion about Indian public being &@#%%$#%^ .I think we are quite smart to discern the truth from propagated falsehoods. Also, @Gollum: Your analogy isn't apt. In my earlier posts in this thread, I have about the TADA and the Arms Act etc. Even though, IMO, Sanjay Dutt should have been prosecuted under the TADA, there is nothing to show that he was a part of the bomb blast conspiracy. In fact, there is some telephonic evidence to show that he asked his friend Yusuf Nullwala to destroy the gun after he heard of the blast.

    Some of the people on this thread abuse so much. Its almost like swearing is your madar tongue.

    Sanju Movie trailer

    Hain? How is Sanjay Dutt the equivalent of Osama here? I don't think the movie Sanju glorifies Dawood Ibrahim or any of the members of the underworld. It basically skips that chapter of Sanjay Dutt's life.
  19. Race 3 Like any other self respecting Muslim, I saw this movie on Eid. The best part about this movie is that it has no script or screen play. It is a string of unrelated scenes and fight sequences one after the other, shot in Abu Dhabi. It had a Happy New Year deja vu, minus the dance. I expected Salman Khan to be his narcissist self, and hog all the limelight by being present in each and every scene, but he gave ample screen time to everyone. That way the blame in case of a commercial disaster would lie with the entire lot. 0.5/10
  20. I think that Rajkumar Hirani got confused when he heard people call Sanjay Dutt as Sanju Baba. He took the 'baba' part literally and tried to portray Sanjay Dutt as a saint in the movie.
  21. Actually, I can't tell the difference between Sauerkraut and Kimchi. Tastes the same! Fermented cabbage, both.
