Game of Thrones series to be turned into a movie

HBO is planning to adapt its popular series Games of Thrones into a film, says author George R.R. Martin.
US network HBO will make a big screen adaptation of the popular show Game of Thrones when the fantasy drama ends its run on TV, says its creator George R.R. Martin.
Game Of Thrones, which is mainly filmed in Belfast, won several Emmys this year. Speaking at the HBO after party, author Martin said he will not be involved in the film and that show writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be in charge, reports
Martin, who is currently writing the final two Game Of Thrones books, said: "There will be a movie but I will not be involved.
"I have too much to do. That is something HBO and the DB and David are dealing with. I have two more books to finish and I still have so much to do. The pressure is on. I am such a slow writer and the fans get upset that I don't write faster."
A production source said the film may go back in time.
The source said: "With the Game Of Thrones universe, there is much rich material and no constraints on when that story will take place. They are looking at dipping back in time during certain periods of the series, which could be examined as a one off plot.
"That means that some of the big characters who fans have seen die on screen could be resurrected such as Robb Stark, Catelyn Stark, Oberyn Martell The Red Viper - and Ned Stark."
Despite the film plans, Benioff ruled out extending the TV series to 10 seasons.
He said: "No way in hell because we know what the end is and we're rapidly approaching it."

Diwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ) revised, rewind and remembered once again: SPOOF!!!

I know, I know. I am attempting to ruin your favourite film; don’t kill me. I like it too. It’s every desi’s favourite film. And, well, why shouldn’t it be?
I have decided to rewind Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. So here we go, wink wink.
DDLJ opens with a sad shot of fobby store owner London dad Baldev (Amrish Puri) feeding birds while reminiscing about India after having reached the stars in Vilayat.
Oh, and he’s totally trippin’ balls.
While uncle is busy seeing shapes in the sky, let me introduce you to his family.
Meet annoying smartass 12-year-old Chutki, who ideally should have been killed by Paresh Rawal in King Uncle, and max Punjabi mummy jee, Lajjo.
Of course, this family is uninteresting as shit without Simran, the teenage dreamy daughter whose hormones are through the fucking roof and who likes to read out sensual poetry about boys to her mother.
Next, Simran — whose lover has the same existential status as the Flying Spaghetti Monster — is seen getting out of the shower after unspecified activities which lead her to fantasise further about this lad she has been in love with.
Now we get to have a first look at dream boy Raj. In all honesty, brotha looks hella fucking violent.
However, daddy dearest has other plans. He decides to marry her off to a friend’s son, Kuljeet, in India. The family finds a very interesting way of breaking the news to Simran.
Soon Raj (who actually exists, by the way, and is very rich) enters the scene. He goes to Baldev’s store and cheats him into opening the store past closing time just to get some beer, managing to get mad permanent hate in Baldev’s eyes.
Simran, who is absolutely fucking chill with the idea of marrying a total stranger at this point, wants to live her life and seeks her dad’s permission to go to Europe.
But dad is not asshole enough to not let his daughter go on a trip. He’s ONLY asshole enough to raise her in the west and marry her off in India to a complete stranger. He grants her permission to tour Europe with her friends.
Simran and Raj are on the same train (duh, this is an Indian movie. The force is always with love). They finally meet and Raj tries to hit on Simran (duh, this is an Indian movie).
Soon after telling Raj she doesn’t go to parties, Simran meets Raj at (can you guess?) a party of course. He plays the piano impeccably while dancing with Urmila Matondkar clones.
Long story kinda-short, Raj and Simran fall in love because the first step to falling in love is public humiliation. They miss a couple of trains, get drunk, have fun, almost get laid in a barn.
Now I understand this is the 90s, but what the fuck are you wearing, Simran? You look like a Fresh Prince-y Lil’ Kim at a Church.
Simran finally breaks the arranged marriage news to Raj, who is heartbroken… And also like WTF.
The trip is over. Everyone goes home with the realisation that they are in love with each other. It is said that they also took a lot of drugs on the train back home because both of them were seeing each other everywhere for, like, a whole fucking day.
High on love, Simran tells her Ma everything. But both of them have too many goddamned blind spots in each eye because dad is standing right there, 3 feet away from them, listening to the whole conversation. He’s not even hiding behind something. He’s just standing there tall and visible as fuck, but you know what they say, love is blind.
Meanwhile Raj tells his dad all about the girl with questionable fashion choices who he fell in love with in Europe.
Simran has already flown to India where her wedding is being planned. Kuljeet, Simran’s to-be husband, is a complete asshole who kills little wabbits and birdies. :<
Simran is barely surviving the ceremonies and her grandma can tell she’s unhappy, so she decides to ask her son Baldev.
It doesn’t take Raj very long to get to this village he has never heard of.
Raj’s master plan includes befriending Kuljeet, entering the shaadi house and slowly trying to impress Simran’s dad so that he agrees to wed his girl off with him. That sounds like a totally shit plan to be honest. It’s like going to someone else’s birthday party and hoping you will figure out a way to make it your own if you are nice enough to everyone.
He rescues Kuljeet from this one thing and, wouldn’t you know it, they become best friends forever. You need to watch this scene if you have not. For a hunter, Kuljeet has the agility of a fried egg.
Raj lies about setting up a Stroh’s beer factory (mad product placement BTW) in the village and Kuljeet’s fam instantly falls in love with him because money and beer tune in well with us Punjabis. His sister develops a crush on Raj.
But Baldev (Baou Ji) knows wassup… He immediately recognises Raj.
Raj struggles to impress everyone at the house. Apparently, thaalis/trays are excellent props when you’re trying to impress old desis.
It is clear that the family is quite impressed because they want to marry Kuljeet’s sister Preeti to Raj.
By now, the awkward caressing just looks like a fucking family tradition.
So anyway, Raj’s dad (he calls him Pops) decides to come meet him in India and his hat choices appear to be inspired by the cartoon character Strawberry Shortcake.
He accidentally asks the family for Preeti’s hand because he’s incredibly stupid and wears, like, 4 fucking layers of clothing in Punjab’s scorching heat. He’s still in London in his head, I guess. Is this a desi uncle thing? For their heads to be somewhere else?
Anyway so, they try to get things under control while the fam is still celebrating. Everyday is a new family function.
Kuljeet’s sis shows off these complicated-cool dance moves. Watch out, Step Up 5.
Breakin’ your neck like
Pops meets probable future bahu and approves in a minute.
But he’s enjoying his trip because he’s spending a good amount of time hitting on Simran’s older unmarried aunt.
Soon, Simran’s mom Lajjo sees Raj and her secretly meeting (in the fucking open, on the terrace in a shaadi ka ghar, fucking geniuses).
She decides Raj and Simran should run away but Raj has a huge moralistic turd up his ass.
Baou Ji and Raj begin to bond over important things…like wild pigeons and inefficient medicine of the ancients.
But thanks to daadi’s illness, the shaadi is now going to happen a week prior to the set date. Raj’s plans are failing.
His dad tells him there is no way out but to kidnap Simran and flee to London.
With the secret-keeping ability of a cornflake, Simran leaves a picture of Raj and herself from the Europe vacation near an open window. The photograph flies away and finds itself in the hands of Mogambo Baou Ji.
Raj realises nothing will work. On the day of the wedding, he decides to leave but on his way out, this happens…
It doesn’t end here. Baou Ji basically goes fucking Ehonda on Raj. Heck, even kind of looks the part.
Hundred Hand Slap attack later, Raj proceeds to apologise to everyone and then leaves for the train station.
Sorry is not enough. It is time for some action. Kuljeet and his goons grab the most threatening weapons in all of India (wooden sticks) and start beating Raj up at the station.
I told you Daddy Shortcake was nothing but a liability.
Anyway, so in like 4 minutes, everyone from the Haveli shows up. Girlses, boyses, uncles, aunties. Everyone.
Raj and his dad get on the train which is just in time because everyone just got done throwing up blood and breaking bones. The family stays there and watches because you have to walk your guests outside; it’s a desi tradition. We fucking love tradition, okay?
Simran begs Baou Ji to let her go but Baou Ji is the kind of man who even holds his farts in because he has the authority to — talk about letting a whole person out.
And just like that, we see the perfect Hindi film ending.
The train is the actual hero in DDLJ. Hahahahaha...I still love this film.

How do you feel when your Heart Breaks. And when your closest Friend seems distance and miles away!

You want there to be a reason. A concrete reason as to why you no longer feel the way you once did about your best friend, the person you grew up with and have been close with for forever. A reason would make it easier. It would make you feel less guilty. It would make the dissolution less strange and painful.

But sometimes there isn’t one. Sometimes you grow apart from your best friend and there really isn’t a good reason as to why. It might be completely one-sided too, which makes you feel even worse. You’re drifting away and they still feel like nothing’s changed. You wonder if you’re a cold-hearted jerk for throwing away years of friendship. You’ll just always be reminded of how close you USED to be and how everything’s now changed and you’re not sure why. To me, that seems more painful than just cutting the friendship off.

Well the point is loosing a friend and loosing the one who was closest to your heart kills your from inside every second. While I am writing this I am constantly thinking of that friend whom I am loosing. Whose mistake it is, who is at fault…I guess during these fights it’s hard to analyze and sit down and discuss all that. What is in store for the future we really don’t know, but all we can do is just hope that my once bestie remains happy, my once bestie gets success, my once bestie gets many more better loving and caring friends than I was ever was for her. Because she deserves that Love and Affection and Attention and what not. I could go on and on.

Some of the best quotes that come to my mind with a broken heart:

  • I feel like giving up but..when I see your face again. I can’t handle it. It bothers me that we are drifting apart.
  • I’ve lost friends over the years an each time it really got to me, then I realized that people grow up and grow apart.
  • A friend will walk in miles, will share tears and give you smiles and even though paths may sometimes drift apart, true friends never leave the heart.
  • The best things in life come in threes, like friends, dreams, and memories.
  • We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

There’s no easy solution for this. What do you do? Do you call them up and say, “Look, I love you and always will but I feel like have nothing to say to you anymore?” You can’t do that! Can you?

Or do you just let it slowly die? You ignore their phone calls and then finally you put the nail in the coffin by being in the same city as them and “forgetting” to see them. That’ll let them know that it’s officially over.

I don’t know. You wish you could just be honest with each other but that’s hard, But you know what? Lying is hard too! It might even be harder than telling the truth. If you grow apart from someone, can you just be real about it? Can you ever tell them how you really feel?

Maybe. Regardless of how you choose to have the friendship end, it’s over. And sometimes that realization is harder to come to terms with than anything else.

The Martian Matt Damon to take on Akshay Kumar's Bliing

Hollywood actor Matt Damon-starrer The Martian has some bling-y competition waiting for it in India. The film, directed by Ridley Scott, will clash with Akshay Kumar's Singh Is Bliing when it release in India on October 2, which is observed as Gandhi Jayanti.

The space action adventure film is to release in India on the same day as the US. Mark Watney, played with the usual charm and biting wit by Matt Damon is caught in an accident during an expedition on Mars. His crew, believing him dead, leaves. Watney, a biochemist, is left to fend for himself on a planet where nothing grows. His supplies are scheduled to run out in 31 days and by his most modest calculations, a rescue mission by NASA will take at least 4 years. If he can find a way to contact them, that is.

Both the films will get a three-day long release window, given the fact that Gandhi Jayanti is a national holiday. The Martian is based on Andy Weir's 2011 novel of the same name. The film also features Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie, and Chiwetel Ejiofor in supporting roles.

Meanwhile, Prabhudheva directed Singh Is Bling is an action comedy, which also features Amy Jackson, Lara Dutta and Kay Kay Menon. The film is being talked about for its action sequences.

Kumbh Super-Cop: He Jumped 20 Feet Into the River to Save a Life

A devotee attending the Kumbh Mela in Nashik in Maharashtra tried to kill himself by jumping off a bridge into the waters of the River Godavari below.

A 24-year-old policeman on duty, Manoj Barahate, dove right in after him and saved the stranger's life. His act of bravery was caught on security cameras.

On Twitter, Praveen Gedam, the top official of the local corporation, said the police office had jumped off "a 20-feet-high bridge".

The Kumbh Mela -- a celebration of faith in which Hindus bathe in a sacred river -- is held every third year and is rotated between four holy sites.

It is held at Nashik every 12 years and, although it isn't on the same scale as the editions on the Ganga at Haridwar and the Sangam at Allahabad, it still draws millions of pilgrims.

Thirty-nine pilgrims were trampled to death and dozens injured when the religious festival was last held by the Godavari river in Nashik, around 100 miles northeast of Mumbai, in 2003. Local officials say they have made meticulous arrangements to ensure the safety of pilgrims this year.

Mr Gedam, as an example, tweeted a picture of policemen standing in the water forming a human chain to ensure more pilgrims didn't enter the river till the incumbents had finished offering their prayers and vacated the ghat or steps where the  devotees enter the water.
