The penultimate episode of the eighth and final season of GoT titled 'The Bells is out.Spoilers AheadEpisode 5 was always going to be that big episode wherein Dany would finally claim the Iron Throne. The last episode had ended on a grim note for Dany. Not only did she lose another dragon but she also lost Missandei. Cersei in her madness has yet again overestimated her resources. Or has she? The title of Ep.5 actually refers to the bells which are supposed to be rung in case the city is forced to surrender. The fifth and penultimate episode of the last and final season begins with ...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureIn the recent months I have been observing a sort of negativity surrounding films of Dharma Productions and Karan Johar. While I agree that Kalankwas a forgettable film I am shocked to see a rating of 1.7 on IMDb for Student Of The Year 2. While the film is not brilliant by any means there are a lot of positives in the film. First and foremost, I am really excited about the prospects that await young Ananya Pandey. She certainly has a bright future ahead of her. Also, Aditya Seal has impressed me greatly. The kid from Ek Chhotisi Love Story has grown into a handsome man. And of course Tiger Shroff is very good in the movie, especially in the fighting scenes wit...

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanThe Game of Thrones saga is fast approaching its end. The eighth and final season is slowly but surely moving towards its finale. I have just finished watching the fourth episode of season 8 titled ‘The Last of the Starks’. After the fiasco which was the third episode of the season ‘The Long Night’—one of the most criticized episodes and one of the lowest rated ones in the history of Game of Thrones—everybody had been hoping for a better outing in Episode 4. At the risk of giving away major spoilers from Ep. 4, I would like to tell you that as expected the episode begins with a huge funeral ceremony during which the dead from the B...

And they do it for all kinds of exams: railway, medical, engineering, banking, teaching, etc. Of course, the professional charges vary depending on the prestige associated with a given job.

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanJust finished the 'Battle of Winterfell' episode of Game of Thrones titled 'The Long Night' and all I can say right now is that it left me cold and not in a good way by any means imaginable. Seriously it can't get any worse... how can you take all of us for fools, Team GoT? No wonder even George R. R. Martin isn't pleased either with how the show is coming to an abrupt end. Clearly the show runners have lost the plot in desperation to end it all in a jiffy.I never felt this underwhelmed after watching an episode of Game of Thrones... what a pity that it took 70 odd nights of shooting. Game of Thrones makers seem to have lost all respect f...

And before the season 8 premiere 'Winterfell' I revisited 'The Dragon and the Wolf' to see how well it would connect with 'Winterfell'. And I am now convinced that I was right about it being one of the weakest season finales. But having now watched 'Winterfell' I feel that the two episodes work really well together. ...
