Summer Movies 2021 | News Aur Chai

Lazy summer afternoons in the sweltering heat call for the perfect summer watch. As you sit at home for yet another summer in the pandemic, these movies fill the void with their thrilling adventures. If you don’t have the energy to surf through your Netflix or Amazon for hours on end for the perfect movie, don’t worry! We’ve compiled ten of the best summer classics, peppered with a few fresh faces, just for you!

10. Moana

Disney movies aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but Moana is a must-watch for its stellar soundtrack and vibrant visuals. Set in the South Pacific island of Motunui, Moana is a coming-of-age story. 16-year-old Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) struggles between fulfilling her parents’ expectation of leading their clan and following her heart, and exploring the glorious sea. The warm colour palette of the movie effortlessly sets the tone for a bright summer to come. 

9. Wake up, Sid 

Wake up Sid is genuinely a nostalgic gem from the 2000s, and what is summer for if not reminiscing? Siddharth (Sid) Mehra (Ranbir Kapoor) is a carefree college student who lives for spontaneity and “living in the moment” with no clue about what comes next. His aimless life takes a sharp turn when he fails his exams and realises the need to stand up on his own two feet. When an aspiring writer, Aisha (Konkona Sen), enters his life and has a no-tolerance policy for his negligent and reckless behaviour, it’s a wake-up call for Sid. 

8. Palm Springs

“It’s gonna be a beautiful wedding!” Niles (Andy Samberg) and Sarah (Cristin Milioti) cross paths at the destination wedding of Sarah’s sister. Sparks fly between the two as they hit it off immediately and get to know each other. Maybe more than they bargained for when the two of them inexplicably get stuck in a time-loop, reliving the wedding day over and over again. Helpless, they turn to each other as sudden partners in the same sinking boat.

7. Bachna ae Haseeno  

Bachna Ae Haseeno follows playboy Raj (Ranbir Kapoor) through his quick conquests, breaking hearts left and right. A whirlwind summer romance in Switzerland and a bride left alone at the alter prove to be Raj’s downfall when the girl he truly falls in love with rejects him outright. Devastated, Raj undertakes an arduous journey to earn forgiveness for wronging his past loves but will he be forgiven?

6. Call Me by Your Name

 Call Me by Your Name is the epitome of a young and electrifying summer love set in the summer of 1983 in Italy. A routine getaway at the summer home gives way to a passionate love between 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and the older Oliver (Armie Hammer). The two meet through Elio’s father, the latter working under him as a research assistant. In the reclusive atmosphere, they tumble into a love that will change them in unimaginable ways. 

5. Dil Dhadakne Do

This family drama appears like a glimpse into the luxurious cruise in Italy celebrating Mehra’s 30th anniversary. But the close-quarters unearth the layers of troubles each of them fights to keep under the wraps. A series of shenanigans and misunderstandings make for an eventful trip that is both entertaining and enlightening. The Mehras are forced to confront each other about the fundamental problems threatening to tear them apart in a final bid to remain together. 

4. Mamma Mia

This evergreen classic plays out in the picturesque Greek island of Kalokairi. Sophie’s (Amanda Seyfried) wedding is everything she ever dreamed of, but there’s only one thing missing. She desperately wishes for a father to walk her down the aisle on her special day. Some snooping revealed three flings of her mom’s (Meryl Streep), who could potentially be her father. Sophie invites them secretly, and the confused hysteria that follows is a delightful watch. The movie has a soundtrack filled with ABBA hits that are guaranteed to get you swaying in joy. 

3. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

Released in peak summer, this movie let us all live vicariously through it as we follow four friends through the summer of a lifetime. The exhilaration from an utterly spontaneous trip with strangers who become a chosen family is unparalleled for Naina (Deepika Padukone), who has always been a misfit. Bunny’s (Ranbir Kapoor) unquenchable thirst for travelling and exploring lights a fire in the hearts of many. But the fun is undercut with the emotional punches of heartbreaks and choosing between love and your passion.  

2. Pitch Perfect

Though Pitch Perfect certainly isn’t set in the summer, the premise of the first year in college certainly fits the summer mood. Beca (Anna Kendrick) is resolved not to enjoy college in defiance of not being allowed to try out producing music in LA. But her dad’s condition of genuinely trying out college life has Beca reluctantly joining the college acapella group, the Bellas. This musical comedy is chock full of mesmerising singing, percussion and heart-warming moments of belonging in a group of oddballs.

1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

 Any summer movie list would be remiss without the ultimate road-trip classic of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD). Filmed in Spain, Egypt, the United Kingdom and India, ZNMD takes us through the trip of a lifetime, setting the benchmark for every trip with college friends. Kabir (Abhay Deol), Imran (Farhaan Akhtar) and Arjun (Hritik Roshan) decide to face their biggest fear during a Bachelor’s party trip to Spain before Kabir’s wedding. The three friends discover themselves and the meaning of life whilst having the time of their lives. 

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your popcorn and ice cream and get watching!

Keanu Reeves Returns with “The Matrix Resurrection”

Published

Matrix Resurrections 2021 | News Aur Chai

The expectation of the unexpected fourth instalment of The Matrix Resurrections in the sci-fi establishment has started with another banner prodding the arrival of its first trailer.

The film Matrix 4 comes out 18-years after The Matrix Revolutions. It is planning to be the last film in a trilogy reporting the transformation of Computer programmer Thomas Anderson into cybercriminal Neo. As he finds the conventional world, he occupies a recreated reality.

Loosening up the expectation, with a special promotional. It highlights red and blue pills sit next to each other underneath the clear message: ‘The Choice is yours.’ Fans of the famous establishment will perceive the pills as a definitive choice given to Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, as he picks between life in the conflict assaulted real world or the ‘beautiful prison’ of a substitute reality. Penetrating static fills in as the scenery, as small strings of Matrix code has seen falling inside the pills before the whole scene liquefies.

Fans can proceed with their adventure on WhatIsTheMatrix.com, an intelligent pick your-own-experience style site. Given a similar decision there, red brings you down a rabbit hole where you’re told: ‘This is the moment for you to show us what’s real.’ Then scenes from the film teaser, showing the slight hindrance between the natural world and the fake world known as The Matrix. One of the Best Scenes is Reeves’ Neo gulping a blue pill while a lot more seasoned, a balder man shows up in his appearance.

The scenes reviewed rely upon which pill selection and each emphasis on the decision made. The Red Pill requests that the watcher go further into the reality behind the Matrix. While the Blue Pill cautions them to avoid it again so as not to agitate the norm and welcome undesirable risk.

Still, the viewer’s decision makes, in any case, every secret seems to end with a brief look at Keanu Reeves as Neo, with different eyes. He either collaborates with characters who could be his partners in the film or plans to fight against its expected scalawags, be they Agents, pernicious projects, or even people.

The person who clicks on the blue pill will hear Harris’s voiceover saying: “You’ve lost your capacity to discern reality from fiction.” Before encouraging the viewer to embrace that their situation is genuine. At the current time, streaks on the screen, and Harris peruses it, saying, “anything else is your mind playing tricks on you.” By contrast, ones’ who click on the red pill hear Abdul-Mateen’s voice revealing to them that while they trust it’s the current time — once more. With Abdul-Mateen perusing the time out loud — “that couldn’t be further from the truth.” Regardless, a progression of quick-cut shots from “Revivals” streaks on the screen during the two situations. As each time a viewer taps on a pill, the recording changes.

‘This could be this is the first day of the rest of your life, but if you want it, you gotta fight for it.’ The portrayal wraps while showing star Keanu Reeves prepared to battle. Then, at that point, finishing on a vile note, they show somebody contacting the PC port at the rear of their head and inquire: ‘We don’t want anyone to get hurt, do we?’

From visionary movie producer Lana Wachowski. The new film reunites unique stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as Neo and Trinity, the infamous roles they made well known.’ The first Matrix film in 1999 met with much essential acclaim upon its introduction. The element is following up by two other movies, which were both delivered in 2003. Warner Bros. uncovered the title for the fourth Matrix film during its CinemaCon board. The Matrix Resurrections will release on December 22, 2021.

Obviously, India is part of the mix as well. India is set to get its first Jungkook bus shelter advertisement in Mulund, Mumbai. For the first time, India has seen such posters and this project on such a large scale in the country so far.

Jungkook’s Indian fan base dedicated a billboard to him. According to a tweet posted by @Jungkook_INDIA, fans in Mumbai have rented a bus stop billboard in Mulund West, adorning it with pictures of Jungkook, also quoting, “You are the cause of my Euphoria.” Bus Shelter advertisement also showed QR codes to Jungkook’s solo hits such as Begin, Euphoria, My Time, and Still With You. Bus Shelter Advertisement will be displayed until September 4, 2021.

Upon being asked about the project, @Jungkook_INDIA replied, “We choose Mulund since it’s in Mumbai, where it is easily accessible for more ARMYs to come and see the project. This is not the first time a foreign artist/K-pop idol on the billboard in India, another fandom already done that, but it is the first time for a bus shelter billboard. We did this to show our love and support, and we are glad if locals came to know more about BTS through the billboard”.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are countless charity projects and other billboards that will mark the singer’s 24th birthday. The Billboard project is another illustration of how K-pop’s fan following in India is immensely growing.

BTS seems to connect with a massive number of people irrespective of their language because they talk about topics that many artists of today’s generation may have failed to do. These seven young men talk about discrimination, gender equality, mental illness, loving oneself, etc. Their songs resonate with people belonging to any age and background. Moreover, they cover a wide variety of genres. The group debuted on June 13, 2013; despite all the odds against them, the BTS members each succeeded in their own way. Each member has their own unique personality and talents that make the group so great.

Journey of Raj Kundra: From IPL owner to Porn Movies Producer

Raj Kundra Case II News Aur Chai

Businessman Raj Kundra has hit the headlines after his arrest by the Mumbai police for having a connection in the production and distribution of pornographic content. Kundra has been involved in many controversies. Be it money laundering, drama from a first marriage or a criminal case from Poonam Pandey, he has had it all.

Going back to the beginning of Raj Kundra

Born in Ludhiana, he migrated to the United Kingdom in childhood. At the age of 18, he went to Dubai and then later to Nepal, where he started a shawl business. He later began selling shawls to fashion companies in Britain that lead to an increase in his fortunes. After entering the construction sector in Dubai, he developed connections in Bollywood and got into film production. He met Shilpa Shetty and married her.

Together they owned the Rajasthan Royals team in the Indian Premier League (IPL). But, this ownership didn’t last for long as in 2013 came Kundra’s major scandal for match-fixing. He was alleged to have a role in spot-fixing and was banned for a lifetime from IPL.

The current case involves Kundra in an adult film racket. Earlier this year, the Mumbai police had arrested a group of people for allegedly forcing women into porn movies. The group was targeting models and females who aspired to enter Bollywood. They forced these women to act in pornographic content on the pretext of giving them roles.

The movies were circulated on mobile apps, offering subscriptions along the lines of mainstream OTT platforms. They would then advertise on social media platforms to promote such content. Since pornography is illegal in India, this too was against the law.

The police then believed two aspects of this racket. One was catching those that produced these explicit adult content and those who circulated these tapes. Quite a bit of the production houses broadcasting such content was traced from servers outside the country. One such production house was sourced to a UK based organisation found uploading such content. The executive of that company, Umesh Kamat, was charged and arrested. It was then discovered that Kundra’s alleged connection to Kamat and the company that uploaded such pornographic content brought him into the controversy.

After his arrest, Kundra was booked under various IPC sections. IPC 420 that deals with cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property. IPC 34 condemns acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention. IPC 292 and 293, that’s related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays

Kundra might also face charges in accordance to the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
