  1. He could run out the opposition in no time. Hit the ball anywhere but Flash would grab it and run you out before you reach 11 yards For him to be effective as a runner, his partner would have to be quick too. May be Superman at the other end Batman and Ironman probably would not work as their equipments would be termed illegal Who else? Whom would you pick?
  2. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    Below is what the likes of ISIS and Taliban do even now http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/14/asia/taliban-family-freed-canada-boyle-speaks/index.html
  3. Flash would make a great cricketer

    Hulk may be disqualified as he can’t run naked on the field
  4. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    Moors rule in Southern Europe is marred by violence and exploitation as well Unlike many other regions, Ind did well to not turn completely green
  5. Missing The Road Runner !!!

    Available on Netflix .... and there are cartoons such as Bugs Bunny, Daft Duck, Popeye, etc. as well .... One to check out is Tintin, which can be found on Youtube
  6. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    I am clubbing them together under "historical" .... Mythology for many can be history for many so it depends up on perspective on these kind of topics
  7. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    Ashoka was weird too which is why I avoid most "history" based Indian films .... I only watch those which are rated highly on production values, visual appeal, background score, good acting, etc. .... Historical Indian movies are more like Braveheart As mentioned, the benchmark for historical films, imo, are Gandhi, Passion of Christ, etc. I would love to see an Indian film on such subjects made in such a way
  8. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    As mentioned in the post that you quoted, the title "Bajarao Mastani" highlights the fact that it covered the love angle. While Bhagat Singh covered his fight against British or whatever (can't recall now) so not an apples to apples comparison
  9. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    Indian filmmakers in general are not that great when it comes to making history based films No matter what the subject is, most will stick with the classic masala formula. A film on Bhagat Singh will have the character do a song and dance routine. Mahabharata would have Arjun and Draupadi dancing in rain singing something like “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” Historical films should be made like Gandhi, Passion of the Christ, etc. Based on how historical movies are made in Ind, this one too would be a masala film but SLB’s treatment will make it look better esp from the visual appeal, back ground score, etc. PoV
  10. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    Wasn’t the movie titled “Bajirao Mastani” highlighting the love story angle? Someone can can make a film on the love story of Gandhiji and Kasturba w/o diving much in to Gandhiji’s quest for independence
  11. Environment first so a good move. Not only will it reduce smoke levels but also alleviate noise levels for animals, which suffer during such activities However, Fire cracker shows can be allowed at certain selected place where the community can explode them on everyone’s behalf Also a ban on fire crackers during a week will not do much to alleviate pollution. Need to do a lot more including banning heavily polluting (air, water, land) manufacturing plants even if it leads to short term job losses Message should be: Stay poor, hungry or whatever but don’t pollute and mess with the planet for your short term economic gains, pleasure, ....
  12. Padmavati trailer- Wahhhhhhhhh

    Mesmerizing trailer! Don't recall watching a trailer like this recently .... Barbarian at the gate
  13. Link takes to a diffetent story .... However, no biz owner would want to offer bad/defective products. May be a case of bad / unskilled / corrupt (diverting funds for fresh food to their pockets) management employed at this place
  14. Pixel 2 XL would be a smart pick Key features: highly rated camera (for those who use cellphones a lot for photography), front facing speakers (probably the only phone to do that)and stock android all wrapped up in latest hardware and unique design
  15. India's Fertility rate state by state

    Will Ind population growth rate decrease as time goes by and people act responsibly? The answer is yes But the environment could be in ruins before Ind gets to that point. It is scary that a large percentage of Ind is young and equipped to create more damage For me environment and planet are top priority. How ppl who have acted irresponsibly so far do well economically or try to secure their retirement is not an issue for me. A price has to be paid. I would like to evaluate the result of a blanket ban on having new kids till a certain point in future, not have kids till people are in their 30s and the option of making people pay to have kids
  16. ICF Indian Military Discussions Thread

    The goal should be to be among the most technologically advanced forces in the world Current Priorities: 1. Restoration of the environment and reduction of pollution. Greener and cleaner Ind. Environment / Planet first 2. Curbing population and reducing the density 3. Strong defense and efficient infrastructure 4. Strict laws and punishments esp for crime against women, children, littering, polluting, .... 5. Zero corruption culture
  17. What makes you happy?

    Driving on snaking mountain roads while also experiencing the clean and green environment
  18. Netflix

    New shows coming up on Netflix - Link Marseille sounds like a good show! Also waiting for next seasons of Narcos, Marco Polo, American Odyssey, Daredevil, etc.
  19. Ind is still struggling to settle Pandits back in Kashmir. That should be a key issue to focus on
  20. What pisses you off?

    That is a good one. As a vegetarian the above happens to me too I explain that only things that I don't eat are meat and fish (and egg). However, I do eat cakes pretending that I do not know it has eggs in them
  21. I don't know why would they mark numbers on the forehead but may so that people calling in to recognize the body could use the number .... A valid point. They could have used a better way to do that
  22. Negative impact on the environment is huge as well
