The Zoya Factor movie review: Not a faithful adaptation! 21.9.2019
Director: Abhishek Sharma Cast: Dulquer Salman, Sonam Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, Angad Bedi, Sikander Kher, Manu Rishi Cricketmania as a subject of a film is always a safe bet in this part of the world. With the huge following that the game enjoys across all age groups, and even across all regions, it is somewhat of an enigma, more so, that even after so many controversies surrounding it, it continues to be everyone"s favourite. And when the familiar voice of none other than SRK introduces the theme of a film right at the outset itself, and even compares it to an infectious disease like dengue, you know there"s much fun in store ahead of you. Author, screenwriter and advertiser Anuja Chauhan was quick to cash in on the popularity of the game in India in 2008, when she wrote The Zoya Factor, which was, in many ways, an original idea, and so became an instant hit with the readers too. Abhishek Sharma, who also gave us Tere Bin Laden a few years ago, is also on a safe wicket as he blends a story ...

Rains bring Hyderabad to a standstill 20.9.2019
Hyderabad: The city was hit by another spell of copious rains, which disrupted normal flow of life, and brought traffic to a standstill. Water was found flooding different parts of the city, low-lying areas and stagnated on the roads. The rains have left behind water puddles all over. At the ends and sides of roads, below and at the mouths of flyovers, standing water reduced the city to a partially flooded metro in despair. One of the major reasons for stagnation of water in different places was the slopes and gradients in road levels, and engineering flaws, which were not allowing for a natural or smooth flow of water into the drains at Begumpet, Necklace Road and the metro rail corridors. This was seen leading to an overflowing of drains in some parts of the city and caused very slow movement of traffic in the city. A woman walks through water in Malakpet. (Photo: DC) The highest rainfall recorded on Thursday was at Malakpet (37 mm), Saroornagar (26.5 mm), Jubliee Hills (22.5 mm) and other parts of the ...
