Watch Commando for Vidyut Jamwal

Summary: You might have seen our actors flaunting their great bodies in front of the camera. The biceps, triceps, abs look all too good in show off but the moment it comes to action and cracking the skull bone of a villain, the stunts start looking more like comedy.

It Is Complicated! A Real Status or a Fad

Ankush Kumar in his inimitable humorous style writes on a broken heart and what all one does to sew it up, only to fail. Another must read. I am heartbroken. Oh!

A Gentleman’s Game. Why Question Now???

Ankush Kumar talks how irresponsible talks and books only take away the interesting and unpredictable factor away from the game. This one is as straight as it gets and we hope it reaches Ed Hawkins. Bookie update… India will bat first and score over 260, 3 wickets fall within the first 15 overs, Pakistan will cruise to 100, then lose 2 quick wickets, at 150 they will be 5 down and crumble and lose by
