These 10 movies are so scary that viewers are forced to switch them off midway, says Netflix

After the success of Veronica, the new horror film released on Netflix, whose claim to fame was that several audience members were too scared to finish it, the streaming service has released a list of other horror movies that it says were too terrifying for viewers to watch in full.

Soon after the movie premiered on Netflix, tweets such as these were being posted online:

According to Bloody Disgusting, these 10 movies were turned off after 70% of their runtime, indicating more than just disinterest. “Technically speaking, these are the top horror films that committed viewers just couldn’t finish – they made it halfway through, they made it past the climax, but they just couldn’t survive until the end,” the report quotes PR firm Edelman as saying.

Here is the list, in no particular order: Continue reading

Karni Sena accepts Padmaavat glorifies Rajput valour, withdraws protest

After more than a year of launching massive protests against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, later christened Padmaavat, for allegedly distorting history, Karni Sena announced on Friday that it decided to take back its protest and accepted that the movie glorifies the valour of the Rajputs.

The protests started in January 2016 when Bhansali was assaulted on the sets of the film in Jaipur as the members of the fringe group claimed that the film has a romantic sequence between Deepika Padukone’s Padmini and Ranveer Singh’s Alauddin Khilji. Despite the filmmaker’s denial that no such scene exists, the protests continued in many states across India and came to a head around film’s release. Padukone and Bhansali also faced death threats .

Now, Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena’s Mumbai leader Yogendra Singh Katar said that Continue reading

After Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, Haryana on Tuesday became the fourth state to ban Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat citing “law and order situation in the state”.

No need for national anthem in theatres

The Centre on Monday asked the Supreme Court to put on hold its order that made playing the national anthem in cinema halls mandatory, effectively reversing its support of the November 2016 directive that drew flak from free speech activists.

More than year after the order was implemented, the government said it had constituted an inter-ministerial committee to frame new guidelines on playing of the national anthem and would require six months to finalise them.

Until then, the Centre urged the top court to “consider restoration of status quo ante, which is restoration of the position as it stood before the order was passed by the court on November 30, 2016” with regard to the direction that mandates playing of national anthem in cinema halls before Continue reading

Delhiwalo : A suitable boy wanted

Sultana Abdullah is a retired Air India hostess who spent more than 30 happy years on the national carrier’s in-flight cabin crew. She is now 60 and is looking for a bookish romantic handsome man to marry.

pc: ht

A 60-year-old woman with her own apartment in a posh central Delhi locality is looking for a bookish romantic handsome man to marry.

The white coiffured Sultana Abdullah is a retired Air India hostess who spent more than 30 happy years on the national carrier’s in-flight cabin crew. These days, she is often seen cycling around her colony’s bylanes.

Ms Abdullah’s principal qualities — in her own words — include her “wicked sense of humour”, “unfailing loyalty to friends” and the fact that “I check my email only once a month.” Her ideal man should be between 50 and 65 and with common sense. He must be proud of his Indian heritage but should have western sensibilities. “I prefer a happy balance of liberal and conservative instincts.” The suitable candidate should be fond of good music and must not talk politics around the dining table under any circumstances. He should be sufficiently wealthy to take care of his comforts — “at least.” Continue reading
