Pati Patni Aur Woh Cast: Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, Ananya Panday, Aparshakti KhuranaDirector: MudassarAzizRemakes can be a tricky business as comparisons are bound to happen with the original content. Here’s one right at the beginning: I had one problem when I recently watched the original Pati Patni Aur Woh (starring Sanjeev Kumar, Ranjeeta and Vidya Sinha). The writers and the director gave us naive women who will believe every word a man says, even agreeing to continue with a relationship despite knowing that the man cheated. Cut to 2019, three decades later, and Mudassar Aziz’s modern take on Pati Patni Aur Woh didn’t rectify that mistake either. The whole premise that a guy can so easily fool his wife and the woman he loves outside his marriage is so troubling.Watch the trailer of Pati Patni Aur Woh here: The film starts with a dashing voiceover by Jimmy Sheirgill who asserts that ‘aisa koi sawal nahi jiska uttar … [Read more...] about Pati Patni Aur Woh movie review: Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar make this comedy work
A cold gust of wind announces the arrival of rain and K Eswari looks up at the sky nervously. She is mixing clay to make Karthigai lamps and rain can mess up the whole process. “I am kneading the clay we sourced from Thadagam and Kanuvai, with water. It has to be very smooth, otherwise, the end product might develop cracks,” says the 38-year-old. Before I ask any further questions, she cuts me short with, “I will get back to work before it starts raining.”Peek inside any household in Udayar Street, a neighbourhood in Kavundampalayam (nearly 40 families of potters live here), and you will see floors lined with just-made lamps, still wet and smelling of fresh earth. G Kesavaraj is making a batch of large ones that can hold half a litre of oil each. “This is for an order I received from a temple,” he says. Seated on the floor cross-legged, he fashions them with pagalai, a wooden implement shaped like a ladle with a rectangular end. just-made lamps, … [Read more...] about The making of a deepam
Some mutual fund investors love to recycle their investments in Equity Linked Saving Scheme or ELSS to claim tax benefit under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. The strategy is very simple: you recycle your old investment and claim tax deduction on it again after three years. However, the re-introduction of Long Term Capital Gains (LTCG) tax may queer the pitch for these investors, say some mutual fund advisors. “Fundamentally, this process is unhealthy for your investments but now after the introduction of LTCG, you will be at loss since you will pay tax on the redemption,” says Vishal Dhawan, Founder, Plan Ahead Wealth Advisors. The finance minister has proposed to tax long term capital gains above Rs 1 lakh on equity mutual funds at a flat 10 per cent without the indexation benefit. For late comers, investments in ELSS qualify for tax deductions of up to Rs 1.5 lakh under Section 80C. However, instead of making fresh investments, some investors pull out their old … [Read more...] about Does it make sense to recycle your ELSS investments after return of LTCG tax?
Mumbai: Model-turned-actor Sahil Salathia, who makes his Bollywood debut in Ashutosh Gowariker's "Panipat", feels historical movies will help the next generation learn more about the history and make them be proud of our nation. "I hope that the next generation watches films like 'Panipat'. They will learn and be proud of our country. It is important to know about the third battle of Panipat, about Maratha bravery and our great warriors," said Sahil. He feels while our school history textbooks do touch down upon subjects like the Third Battle of Panipat, detailed information is often missing. "The third battle of Panipat was a part of our textbooks in school but I don't know of many people who know about it at length and about the contribution made by Sadashiv Rao Bhau or Shamsher Bahadur. They fought for their motherland but the details of the same have not been spoken about or celebrated. Hence, a lot of people might know their names but perhaps have not dwelled into their journey. … [Read more...] about ‘Panipat’ debutant Sahil Salathia thrilled to work with Ashutosh Gowariker
