West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee performs Kali puja at home 23.10.2014 DNA: Urban Tales
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday performed Kali Puja at her residence at Kalighat area in the southern part of the city. Banerjee, who fasted during the day and prepared the 'bhog' (offering to the Goddess), played host to scores of guests, which included VVIPs, cabinet colleagues, politicians and commoners. The doors of Banerjee's spartan home at Harish Chatterjee Streetin Kolkata were thrown open on Thursday to the public. Clad in her trade mark cotton saree and rubber slippers, Banerjee stood with folded hands and greeted the people and VIPs at her single storey house for the puja, which she has been holding for the last 36 years since 1978, during her days as student leader. Apart from thousands of commoners and Trinamool Congress supporters who visited Banerjee's residence, a group of 50 old women from a nearby NGO also visited her house and took part in the celebration.

Star Wars owner Lucasfilms sues microbrewery over Empire's Strikes Bock lager 23.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Disney-owned Lucasfilm, which holds rights to Star Wars, has filed a suit against New York-based Empire Brewing Co, whose German malt and hops brew could, they say, be confused for an official product Star Wars creator George Lucas once unsuccessfully tried to sue an artist who made Stormtrooper outfits, and even took on a company for developing a headset which allowed video game users to control characters with their minds . Now it appears that the newly Disney-owned Lucasfilm is taking just as litigious an attitude after it emerged that the company is suing a tiny New York-based brewpub for marketing a beer allegedly known as Empires Strikes Bock . Empire Brewing Co, based in Syracuse, has reportedly been trying to trademark the bock lager as Strikes Bock, making its full moniker uncannily reminiscent of the 1980 movie widely regarded as the best in Lucass original Star Wars trilogy. Lucasfilm, which Disney bought for £4.05bn in October 2012, has filed an opposing motion in an effort to stop the beer ...

Watch Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha's action packed trailer of 'Action Jackson' 22.10.2014 DNA: Top News
Staying true to the genre, Prabhu Dheva's next Action Jackson is yet another interesting mix of masala and entertainment, a genre that Prabhu Dheva has mastered over the age! The entire team including Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha and Yami Gautam along with director Prabhu Dheva launched the official theatrical trailer for Action Jackson on Wednesday. Like any other typical action comedies, Ajay's Action Jackson too begins with an interesting shot of Ajay with his lethal weapon - a sword this time! He hits, he punches, he crushes, he kicks and cracks up with his exciting action maneuvers. Also, like a trademark Prabhu Dheva movie, the film is loaded with some dhasu dialogue-baazi as well. But Sonakshi Sinha plays the usual good girl and we think the actress needs to try to opt for some better films which can bring out the immense acting prowess that she had shown in Lootera. Films like these might bring in the money but somehow Sona's character seemed to be lost towards the end of the trailer.  Action ...

19 years of 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge': How DDLJ changed the way we perceive love 20.10.2014 DNA: India
Ask a crowd of Bollywood buffs and two out of three people would tag Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as the most iconic romantic film made in Bollywood. From picturesque locales to a candid love story, DDLJ had everything - love, compassion and candy floss! At a time when films were considered successful on the basis of their golden jubilee, silver jubilees or 100-day run at the box office, DDLJ had set a new record of running for the maximum number of days. No wonder, Mumbai's Maratha Mandir still holds matinee shows of the film.  Different from the usual love sagas that the audience was subjected to at that point, DDLJ was a refreshing change. Apart from the performances, it was the feel and the vibe of the film which tugged at the heart. Defying the age old norms of film making in the '90s, Aditya Chopra had created a world of his own - one that had love, passionate longing to be together and yet paying ode to traditional Indian family values.  The movie not only turned out to be one of India's biggest ...
