That Stolen Single

The path of the Warrior has claimed many a King. So it did Yuvraj. For him to steal a march on Preity and still be joined at the hip with her thusly evinces a deftness of touch not many see in Yuvi.

Santum Santorum

When the brother man’s justifyin’, the faithless believe. No fret plunked out of turn nor string plucked out of tune at Santana’s pit-stop in Delhi. Desi motifs in Tejano fusion styling. Smooth.

The Tiger Also Prances

Will the aesopian magical realism of Yann Martel’s Life of Pi find faithful adaptation with Ang Lee? With Gerard Depardieu, Irrfan and Tabu as ballast, this ship shouldn’t be entirely at sea.

On The Way Up

Her star has waned more than it waxed this year (though we still maintain that her overcoming Ranbir ought to figure as a win). But that mustn’t deter Nargis Fakhri from reaching for the sky this year. Wet tops and brand ambassadorships can only do so much.

  • Since the moment we set our eyes on him on that October evening in 2000, that cracklingly clean ‘plock’ of the ball on his bat, with the whistle-fresh swing and follow-­through, marvelled us. It was the same in Yuvraj Singh’s last inter­national inn­ings. Sandwitched within were six miraculous, now-mythical sixes in an over, the no less magical performances in the 2011 World Cup, and a great, big-hearted recovery from illness. You have a great life after retirement, Yuvi.
  • As Liverpool and Tottenham muscled it out in the major kickabout that’s the Champions League final, after Moha­med Salah pumped in a penalty for a 1-0 lead, as bands of Liverpudlians seriously contemplated a conversion to Mo’s creed, she jumped right in. Comfortably sneakered, ash blonde hair aflow, arms raised, her amplitude tucked into an ungenerous swimsuit, she peddled a porn site. Play stopped for a bit, then the spoilsports threw her out.
  • Amidst the mucky filth, smelling of cordite, that is Bengal’s bipartisan politics on the ground, there emerged two flowers empowered to fight the dominant one in Par­li­a­­ment. TMC’s Mimi and Nus­rat, beloved of cameras in this poll season, were sharply dressed as ever on their first day in the House.
  • Black cape, leather footwear, eyepatch and a tiara—say what you will about Madonna’s outfit in the Eurovision in Israel. Or the fact that her Like A Prayer was woefully out of tune. An inn­ocent espousal of peace—two dancers in her troupe, dressed in Israeli and Palestinian flags, and walking arm in arm—has been castigated as an unwarranted pol­itical comment. But politics is life, the beating heart of art.
