WandaVision is a television series created by Jac Schaeffer. If you are a Marvel fan, then you should definitely go for this one. It will be much better if you see this series before watching Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It is not mandatory to watch but it will be an added topping to your cake if you will watch it. WandaVision is a series filled with thought-provoking details and wonderful performances by Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. The show revolves around them and how this couple – Wanda and Vision hide their true identity as superheroes from the people of Westview and live like a normal couple. The show is weirdly funny and intriguing with lots of twists and turns. The first two episodes of the series might bore you, but it gets interesting with time. This show has a lot to offer. It is available on Disney + Hotstar.

Anatomy of a Scandal

If you are a fan of limited or miniseries like me then you should go for this one. Although the reviews aren’t that good about the show of how misleading it is or how poor the script is. But I personally enjoyed my time with this one. This show is for the ones who enjoy drama. I found it obvious and predictable at times but there is no harm to give it a try. This is a one-time watch series and falls into the category of psychological thriller, and legal drama. As it is a limited series so the number of episodes is 6 only, each of duration around 40 to 45 minutes. The cast is Michelle Dockery who is known for Burnt by the Sun, Downtown Abbey, and many such; Rupert Friend, Sienna Miller, and Naomi Scott. The show is written by David E. Kelley, Sarah Vaughan, Melissa James Gibson. It is directed by S. J. Clarkson and is based on Sarah Vaughan’s book.

Lucifer

The whole story revolves around the angel – Lucifer, who is handsome and powerful and was cast out of heaven for his rebellious nature. Bored out of hell, the devil decides to come back to earth, and starts a new life where he runs a nightclub and inadvertently becomes a consultant for the LAPD. The Lucifer TV show is based on the comic written by Mike Carey, which spun off from Neil Gainman’s, The Sandman. It’s a loose adaptation. You definitely crack up at the punchlines. The delivery of the dialogues and comic timing is equally good. The show is mystery, comedy drama and urban fantasy genre. It is suitable for the audiences 14 and above.

The Boys

Eric Kripke has developed an American superhero television series for the streaming service Amazon Prime Video. The series is definitely worth watching. The Boys is full of action, drama, dark comedy, satire, action, and superhero fiction. It’s based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. This was originally published by DC Comics. The rest should be discovered by you, so I leave it here with the IMDb rating of 8.7 but just remember one thing the audience for The Boys is 18+, so make sure of that you are one of the suitable audience before watching the series.

Locke & Key

The series revolves around a family moving to a home with some supernatural mysteries to unravel involving a set of mysterious keys. The series varies in the tone and quality. It has still a lot of potential and a lot to discover and is yet to open which you can find out in the second season as well. This show is here to captivate its viewers more and stick till the end. The top cast includes –  Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Jackson Robert Scott, Emilla Jones, and Petrice Jones. Wouldn’t like to go into detail with the plot then nothing much will be left for you to explore. So go ahead, and watch it this summer.

Kapil Sharma: Can a common, humble, honest man be the candy of everybody ‘s eye?

Can a common, humble, honest man be the candy of everybody ‘s eye? Can a sub inspector’s son be the most known comedian of the country? Can a poor man who did comedy for living be listed in the Forbes India’s Top 100 celebrity list. The answer is Yes. It’s one and only Kapil Sharma. This man has built every bit of himself with sheer determination and hard work with the Kapil flavour added all over. He is not just a comedian but an inspiration to thousands on how one chases his dreams.During his college days, Kapil was very much involved in theatre. He loved theatre. But it was behind scenes that he discovered his rare talent. He realised that in between the shows and the rehearsals, in the short breaks given, it was always him responsible for tickling everybody’s funny bone. And he didn’t ignore these signs, but churned his career out of it.

But the path wasn’t straight for him. It had its ups and downs. Sharma worked in the comedy show Hasde Hasande Ravo on MH One, until he got his first break in The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. He became the winner of the show in 2007 for which he won 10 lakhs as prize money. With this money , he got his sister married. Probably the most lavish wedding ever in his family.Then he participated in Sony Entertainment Television’s Comedy circus. He became the winner of total six seasons of “Comedy Circus” he participated in. That’s quite a thing! Who ever wins 6 seasons of the same show! He received his fan following prominently from this show. Kapil was new to this taste of fame and success. But he didn’t trembled, Mr. Sharma went on. Soon, he launched his own show Comedy Nights with Kapil, under his banner K9 Production on Colors TV channel. And from there on there was no looking back. He hosted dance reality show Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Season 6 with Manish Paul, hosted Filmfare Awards, was Made the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan Ambassador, have acted in a movie that broke records on its first day of release and so on….

And you know the startling fact? He was previously rejected in the beginning itself, after his auditions for the “The Great Indian Laughter Challenge”. But then got a call back . Now it was this REJECTED man who went on to WIN the show and make something out of his life.

We all know how his light‐hearted comedy makes everybody giggle like a kid. His witty one‐liners sway our mind. Think yourself how can “Babaji kaa thullu” be funny, unless it’s being promoted by brand Kapil. His show is a massive hit in India as well as broad. The theme and the characters of the show were very unique and the audience loved it. B‐town Big wigs like Amitabh Bachan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra , Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Kangana Ranaut veterans like Hema Malini, Rekha, Dharmendra and numerous others sports personalities like Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag. Sunil Gavaskar, Sania Mirza, Virat Kohli, Saina Nehwal, have been on the show. You name it and that celebrity has been there(Please don’t start doing the math now 😉

In an interview, Kapil admitted that he dreams of inviting Mr. Modi to the show.

Well, nobody’s here as his publicity team member. But that can’t stop anyone in getting inspired from the self‐made men. Must tell you that when you write ‘Kapil’ on Google , along with likes of Kapil Dev and Kapil Sibbal , you also get‐“Kapil Sharma”. That itself says about the kind of stature the man possess.

We all look for Inspiration but that can’t necessarily come from all suited and suave professionals , sometimes it can be found in a comedian too! Psychologically thinking, it’s a true fact that someone looks more charming and appeals more if he isn’t surrounded by an aura of Rational egoism. Kapil hasn’t let his popularity and fame affect him. And that’s what has made him more acceptable to the viewers.From a no one to the most loved person in the country and abroad. He made it huge and still is as humble as he was. Rooted to the ground and the best at what he does. Kapil Sharma is an exemplary display to all of us. A gigantic source of inspiration and guidance. He revolutionised the stand up comedy culture in India and will be remembered for years to come.

We love him 🙂

Bollywood Entertainment Featured Post Movie Reviews Sameer Khan

BAJRANGI “BLOCKBUSTER” BHAIJAAN

As the Eid delight of Salman Khan paves its way towards the 200 Cr mark, we give you 10 reasons why this one is a must watch for all the people who love The Bhai as well as others.

1. Harshaali Malhotra: First and foremost the child actress, this little wonder is the life and soul of the movie. She has taken it to a whole new level. She is not our regular cute film child who everyone empathises with; she is way more than that. She is the best child character I have ever seen in a movie. Playing a mute character, her display of emotions will move you and wrench your heart.

2. Salman Khan: For a beautiful change, he is not just standing, making girls woo her and beating up goons in an unrealistic way, he has put in efforts for this movie, has went inside the skin of his character and has provided us with such a positive, lovable character as of his.

3. Nawazuddin Siddiqui: The guy with the golden touch, he has again struck just the right chord with his remarkable performance and superb dialogue delivery. He picks up the ante and makes the ride even fun. His role is small but immensely affective.

4. Kabir Khan: ‘Kabul Express’, ‘New York’ and ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ director and dialogue writer, this guy has perfected himself in so many ways. Directing Salman Khan in such an amazing way takes much toil and hard work. He has played beautifully with the emotions of the viewer and has garnered the script with some hard hitting and wise dialogues.

5. Cinematography: Right from the beginning credits you are lost into the picturesque beauty of the locations. Aseem Mishra’s work is commendable. Camera work is fabulous and the land is shown in a marvellous way.

6. Background Score: Julius Packiam provides us with the right kind of music at just the right time. Judicial use of the songs ‘Tu jo mila’ sung by KK and Javed Ali and ‘Zindagi’ by Jubin Nautiyal is remarkable. Music is a bit funny though but the story makes up for it. ‘Bhar Do Jholi’ is the best from the lot by Pritam.

7.Supporting Cast: Kareena Kapoor, Sharat Saxena, Alka Kaushal, Anuj Shrivastava and Meher Vij and others are all together a treat to watch and they make the story as enjoyable as it can get. To top it all, Om Puri is in special appearance. Quite a win-win here.

8. Extremely Emotional: There was not a single eye which was not wet during the whole second half. The director, along with the strong acting by the cast, has made us cry a lot of times and kudos to them for that. It just makes every character so much close to the heart. Completely awe-struck.

9. Pakistan: Our neighbouring country has been displayed in a very positive light and there are no overtly racial dialogues. The locations as well as the people are displayed with genuine believable positivity and that is the prettiest part about it.

10. The Superlatives: Salman Khan giving his best performance since Wanted and making us all weep and laugh and most importantly make us learn the importance of humanity and pure heartedness. The story is the stellar part about the flick and with the kind of peaceful message it is spreading, is sure is a must watch. Salman Khan and Kabir Khan at their best..! Don’t miss it at all.
