All the episodes have touched topical subjects and dealt with them with utmost sensitively. Hence making it tough to decide which is the best episode out of all.
Why did I love Karan Mehra so much? He believed in eternal love, he stood for what he believed was right and does not wear his different sexual orientation on his sleeve.
And Sobhita because though she is the wife of a rich man, she wants to work to prove herself. And that her conscience pricks her many times when she is fighting for someone. They both have been scarred in their childhood but their experiences have made them…not broken them.
Kalki Koechlin is always a wonder actress who excels in her role. She looks and behaves with fragility, as a woman who is lying to herself. She is putting up a brave front in front of others but walking on a tight rope emotionally by pretending to be someone else. Extramarital affairs are just to seek validation. And that is what Kalki does to reinforce confidence in herself after suffering physical abuse in her broken marriage and a toxic father’s verbal diatribe.
Kabir the sutradhar with his deadpan expressions and inquisitive nature excels in the part where he questions the bride and the groom.
Dowry, molestation, ageing aunties playing rummy, the wide kaleidoscope of emotions are all the hallmark of Made In Heaven.
Jassi the cute middle-class girls who has aspirations but her comfort zone always is her lower-middle-class boyfriend. Even Jim with his strange accent does not come as a caricature but a man torn between desire and duty.
All the topics dwelled upon from child molestation to dowry problems to a lovely marriage between a middle-aged couple or how a young rich girl is willing to settle for anyone even if he has different sexual preferences or gold diggers wearing the garb of intellectuals and of course the quintessential Delhi landlord are dealt sensitively with humour. Aspects of love, hate, spite darkened souls, enlightened souls are all here.

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
Recent footage of her coming out of an airport had comments preaching karma and its cruel ways, that Samantha "deserved her illness" because she filed for divorce.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu fell from being the public’s sweetheart to a villain overnight because she filed for divorce. The actress was struck with myositis post divorce, much to the joy of certain groups (read sexist) in our society.
A troll responded to Samantha’s tweet, “Women Rising!!” by adding to it “just to fall”. She replied, “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.”
Here’s another insensitive tweet by BuzZ Basket showing fake concern for her autoimmune disease. “Feeling sad for Samantha, she lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of divorce strongly and her professional life was seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again.” Samantha responded, “I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did. And here’s some love from me to add to your glow.”
