  • How Bentley’s most powerful SUV Bentayga could be worth 5 Kohinoors

    The common man’s heart in my chest will never be able to fathom why India is still asking for the fêted Kohinoor to be returned by Britain. First, we ‘gifted’ it to them. Second, we’ve no crown to embellish; no queen to celebrate if she turns 100. And all those asking for the diamond – guys, you’re not getting it back. It’s now in their royal crown. So, just let it go. Instead, what the Britons offer to India this day is something much more royal – a pureblood ultra-luxury sports hi-tech wagon pulled by 12 horses that’s coming straight from Crewe, England, at a speed of over 300 kmph. And trust me, owning a Bentley Bentayga could probably bring you as much satisfaction as five Kohinoor diamonds!

  • What happened with Dhoni is unfortunate: Anil Kapoor

    New Delhi, April 28 (IANS) Actor Anil Kapoor says that endorsing brands comes with a lot of responsibility but one can't presume the legitimacy of a particular company in the long run. Earlier this month, Dhoni resigned as the brand ambassador of Amrapali, days after the unhappy residents of a housing project in Noida launched a social media campaign, asking the cricketer to disassociate himself from the realty firm. Sharing his reaction on how brand endorsements are crucial for popular faces like him, Anil said: "I have always endorsed those brand whom I believed and supported." "I feel it is such a speculative business and sometimes you don't know (what will happen).

  • Santa Banta Pvt Ltd review: All pain, no gain

    Santa Banta Pvt Ltd Cast: Boman Irani, Vir Das, Neha Dhupia, Lisa Haydon Director: Akashdeep Rating: 1/5 This film is accused of hurting a certain community’s sentiments, and one wonders why. I’ll tell you why: Because it’s so lethargic and unfunny that the audience cannot wait for it to end. The plot is (thankfully) not complex: Santa (Irani) and Banta (Das) are two good-for-nothing bumbling Punjabis sent to rescue the kidnapped Indian High Commissioner in Fiji. The mission backfires because our heroes are ordinary, fun-loving crackpots rather than competent agents. Of course, Santa-Banta jokes pepper this narrative, but the mere compilation of them does not work; they restrict the situational

Vijay’s latest Robin Hood adventure, Theri, has all of these ingredients to make the movie into a masala that Indian cinema terms entertainment. In the first hour of the film’s run time of 158 minutes, I counted five songs and dances -- one of them with Vijay (playing Indian Police Service Officer, Vijay Kumar) and his lady love, Mithra (a Bengali name that Samantha sports), dressed in Arabian costumes!

The Ministry of External Affairs has written to the British High Commission seeking Mallya's return so that "his presence can be secured for investigations against him" under India's anti-moneylaundering law, spokesman Vikas Swarup told reporters. The liquor tycoon and Formula 1 boss has not disclosed his whereabouts since flying first class from Delhi to London on March 2, leaving the Indian government and bankers red faced as they try to crack down on high-profile defaulters.

  • Compact SUV showdown: EcoSport is fun, but Vitara Brezza is practical

    A mere two days after Maruti Suzuki launched the Vitara Brezza and the compact SUV became the talk of the town, rival Ford did the best (or worst?) thing to divert some of the attention back to its own EcoSport. It cut prices. And by no small measure, mind you. Diesel EcoSports, for instance, now cost a whopping Rs 1.12 lakh less than before. The new pricing means there’s little difference between EcoSport and Brezza prices now. The top-spec Ford EcoSport 1.5 diesel Titanium+ costs Rs 9.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the fully loaded Brezza ZDi+ comes in at Rs 9.68 lakh. We picked the Ford EcoSport as our Car of the Year 2014 and know it’s a brilliant package. Mechanical and cosmetic updates
