'Eyes On The Ball Now'

An old sports adage reasons that neither talent nor heart can be coached. What, if not the innate abundance of both, explains Padma Lak­s­hmi's ability to nab bill­ionaires on the rebound? Vikram Chatwal ought to shake off that Dream state.

Psalm Of The Son

The Book of Fletch spe­aks of how God sent his only begotten son out into the world so that whosoe­ver believed in him enjoy everlasting (shelf) life. Arjun Tendulkar might not be the mess­iah, but his coming (into Mumbai's U-14 team) will be much followed.

Treasures Of The Land

For all of Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima's ovoid loveliness, the paths clicker icon Steve McCurry tread for the Pirelli calendar have nothing on the dusty tra­ils his Kodachrome rolls once blazed along the Oxus.

That Fighting Spirit

After her tiresome exe­rti­ons in Jism 2 failed to aro­use anything more than a premat­ure interest, Sunny Leone tries anot­her backdoor entry into Bollyw­ood, in the Ragini MMS sequel. Will seeking divine int­ervention at Siddhivin­ayak help exorcise old ghosts?

  • A wannabe beauty queen is an idol too. For, to represent India at Miss Universe, Bangalore’s Roshmitha Harimurthy had hurdles to leap over. At her alma mater, Mount Carmel, Rosh aims a selfie, as students and teachers creep in closer.
  • Jennifer Lopez, et al would certainly concede the point that as far as ‘plunging necklines’ go, Deepika’s black blouse is up there with their best dressy efforts. The occ­asion for Deepika’s dazzle statement was the Mexico City premiere of her film xXx: Return of Xander Cage. One can well imagine a Spanish air to her, on what was also her birthday.
  • Post-marriage airiness doesn’t mean Yuvaraj lost sight of his darkest days. On Christmas, when the world celebrates,  Yuvi gave his time to children battling cancer at the St Jude Childcare in Mumbai. We all owe him a bow.
  • Barack Obama is a legend, and a film on his crucially formative years in Columbia is natural. Vikram Gandhi’s Barry stars Devon Terrell and Anya Taylor-Joy (in pic), among others.
