One trademark of a famous superhero is a kick-ass ensemble. Usually made from body-hugging latex, bold colours and featuring their memorable icon, the costume of a superhero can be the making of them. But, when they’re not saving the world or fighting their archnemesis, who still has swagger? Read on for our rundown of the most stylish superheroes:

5. Daredevil
Dressed rather rugged compared to his superhero counterparts, Daredevil (also known as Matthew Michael Murdock), remains stylish. Similar to superhero style icons Batman and Iron Man, he’s a fan of a three-piece suit when he’s not out fighting the bad guys.

Although he is partial to a smart suit, he likes to keep it simple when it comes to colour and prints. Costume designer Stephanie Maslansky explained that this is because since he cannot see his clothes, he needs to know that whatever he pulls out of the wardrobe will pair well together. She also revealed that the majority of his suits came from designer Paul Smith, as these had the best fit for Daredevil.

Murdock does mix it up when it comes to his men’s shirts though. He sports textured Oxford cloth button down shirts, which gives him a more ruffled look compared to those billionaire superheroes such as Tony Stark. His oval sunglasses finish off every look with a touch of style too.
4. Batman
As the wealthiest man in Gotham, Bruce Wayne would be doing something wrong if he didn’t make the list. He adopts more of a reserved style and he isn’t one for flashy suits or garish outfits.But there’s no denying that he knows how to dress. 

He lets his rich playboy persona show when he dons a Giorgio Armani suit in the 2008 film, The Dark Knight. The suit designer revealsthat by wearing a made-to-measure suit like this, Wayne can demonstrate his status as a “discriminating and sophisticated connoisseur of fine fashion, while also showing he has individual taste.”

It appears Wayne is most comfortable when he’s wearing shades similar to his iconic batsuit such as charcoal greys and midnight blues. These keep him looking suave and stylish when he’s off-duty. Similar to Murdock, Wayne is partial to a pair of mysterious sunglasses. He opts for wayfarer sunglasses instead, which match well with his conservative image.
3. Black Widow
Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. Black Widow’s look is one that deserves to be recognised. When she’s not head-to-toe in low-cut latex, she’s channelling 1950s vibes with feminine frills and sweetheart necklines.

Her off-duty look can be described as stylish office chic, and it’s why she’s made the list. In 2014’s Captain America sequel, Romanoff opts for a sleek leather blazer to run her off-duty errands. Paired with black pants and knee-high boots she still brings a powerful demeanour even without carrying out any of her complex manoeuvres. 

In other scenes she’s been spotted in pencil skirts, tall stiletto pumps and buttoned blouses, all of which are well-fitted and match her style. She knows how to colour co-ordinate too. Take her meeting with Captain American and Pepper Potts in Monaco in Iron Man 2. Romanoff shows up wearing a fitted red dress and red lips — both of which complement her glossy red hair.
2. Iron Man
When it comes to Tony Stark, he doesn’t shy away from expensive and flashy clothes and is often seen in a pricey three-piece suit.

Similar to Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark likes to wear the colour of his costume — red. He’s been spotted creating a bold contrast with dark suit jackets and red dress shirt, showing that he’s confident in what he wears and conveying power with the bold tone.
He doesn’t shy away from accessorising either. From expensive watches and smart inventions to loud sunglasses he likes to spend his cash on items other than clothing. His sunglasses of choice seem to be low tinted aviators, and he’s been seen wearing red, brown, and violet coloured lenses — not your traditional wayfarer styles!

It’s the well-groomed beard and pinstripe patterns that keeps him looking suave. Take his grey pinstripe suit that he wears before a Senate hearing in Iron Man 2 for example. Of course, Stark pairs it with a chunky yellow tie — he’s not one to be plain!

If he’s not rocking a suit though, he’s kicking back in a vintage tee — of course, he still looks the part!
1. Black Panther
T’Challa, or Black Panther, bases all his looks on tradition and it’s why he stands out from the rest.

All of the outfits were designed by Ruth E. Carter. She said that she based T’Challa’s look on 18th century designs, complete with embroidered panels which resemble a Nigerian style.

He wears a few different looks throughout the film, but they all are suited for someone who is not only a king but a military leader. Take the first time he is spotted on the throne for example, his black and grey embroidered jacket stands out from the rest of his look and sets the tone for his fashion sense throughout the rest of the film. In another scene, he wears a white embroidered tunic, crafted with patterns that represent cultures from around the world — something truly unique!

Just because he’s a style king doesn’t mean that his look pleases everyone. Even his sister Shuri mocks his sandals in the film, but in reality, they were modified Alexander McQueen shoes!

In the final scene, he wears a fitted black-on-black suit and accessorises with a colourful print silk scarf – tribute to the beauty of black people. This scarf was designed by Wale Oyéjidé who named the piece “From Wakanda, With Love’.

From suave three-pieces to dynamic scarves, our superheroes certainly know how to dress when they’re not in costume.

A Potpourri of Vestiges Review

By Murtaza Ali Khan


After a long wait, TheAccidental Prime Minister is finally set to release on 11th January 2019. Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte and written by a team of writers led by Mayank Tewari, The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the 2014 memoir of the samename by Sanjaya Baru who served as India’s former two time Prime Minster Manmohan Singh’s media advisor during his first term from 2004 to 2009 under the Congress led United Progressive Alliance. The film stars Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna as Manmohan Singh and Sanjaya Baru, respectively. It costars Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna, Suzanne Bernert, Aahana Kumra and Arjun Mathur.


The Accidental Prime Minister stops short of vindicating former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh despite some conscious efforts to present him in good light at crucial junctures in the film. As a film, it seems to suffer from budgetary constraints. The low production values become the film's biggest undoing. The film fails to leverage the language of cinema to present the events in Sanjaya Baru's book and merely settles to retell the book's account as plainly as possible. This can be partly attributed to the director's inexperience at handling the complex subject matter at hand. As much as I hate saying this but the film's creative team could have learnt a lot from how Hollywood approaches political films. Even a series like House of Cards has so much more to offer. I mean a lead character's repetitive breaking of the fourth wall alone can't make a film engaging for its entire duration. Yes, Akshaye Khanna tries his best to add color to the boredom that surrounds the PMO helmed by a soft-spoken Prime Minister like Manmohan Singh. Akshaye Khanna succeeds in getting into the skin of the character and delivers his best performance in years. But the performances alone can't save a half-baked film like this one.

All those interested in Baru's account would be much better off reading the book than Gutte's adaptation of it.

Rating: 4/10

A Potpourri of Vestiges Review

By Murtaza Ali Khan

The emergence of OTT platforms is fast changing India's entertainment horizon. While today we have a lot of OTT platforms at our disposal, when it comes to content truly representing India's socio-cultural milieu, ZEE5 seems to be leading the brigade. The latest ZEE5 Original to have released on the OTT platform is Rangbaaz.
Rangbaaz transports us back to the 1990s, bringing us face to face with the '90s Gorakhpur underworld in all its lurid glory. The series follows the rise of Shiv Prakash Shukla as he becomes the most feared gangster of Uttar Pradesh in the 1990s. Rangbaaz also explores the unholy nexus amongst the gangsters, police, and politicians with each vying for power and supremacy.

In Rangbaaz, the part of Shukla is essayed by Saqib Saleem with great poise and conviction. What's commendable is how well Saleem manages to show us the vulnerable side of Shukla. His multilayered portrayal helps us understand why everybody feared a 25-year-old gangster like Shukla so much. Rangbaaz also stars Tigmanshu Dhulia, Ravi Kishan, Ranvir Shorey, and Aahana Kumra in pivotal roles. While Dhulia, Shorey, and Kishan deliver some of their best performances in recent times, the real surprise package here in Kumra. Many of us would remember her from the TV series Yudh but ever since Alankrita Shrivastava's Lipstick Under My Burkha, Kumra has really evolved as a performer. In Rangbaaz we get to see her in a very interesting role which in many ways is easily the best of her career.
Tigmanshu Dhulia in Rangbaaz
Rangbaaz stands apart from the series of crime based content on offer as it is based on a real character and the events surrounding him. The series is shot in a very realistic way and the action scenes really pack a punch. In recent times, the quality of action choreography in Indian films and series has improved by leaps and bounds. And it's not just about the quality but also the scale has gone up tremendously. Earlier owing to various constraints of budget and technology we couldn't film complex action scenes involving a large number of characters but today all that has changed. Of course, the budgets today are designed keeping in mind the overall intensity that needs the be achieved. And it wouldn't be a hyperbole to say that Rangbaaz is right up there with the best we have seen so far.
It's indeed very heartening to see crime stories from the Indian hinterland finally getting the attention that has eluded them over the years. Mumbai crime underworld has already been done to death. It caught everyone's imagination after Satya became such a huge success back in the late 1990s. A strong series like Rangbaaz with its focus a '90s gangster based out of Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur is both refreshing and unique.

If you like the crime genre and are looking for something new then you certainly cannot afford to miss Rangbaaz.

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature


Netflix presents a funny, heartwarming and cringeworthy look at the universally awkward coming-of-age experience full of good times, wild times, tough times, and the time of your life.

Sex Education launches globally on January 11th telling the story of Otis, a teenage boy being raised by his sex-therapist mother Jean played by Gillian Anderson. The eight-episode dramedy takes on conversations about sex, identity, love and the ups and downs of young adult life in a frank and truthful way and proves “Experience is Overrated!”

About Sex Education

Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) is an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student who lives with his mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson), a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve (Emma Mackey), a whip-smart bad-girl, and his best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.

Sex Education is created and written by Laurie Nunn and executive produced by Jamie Campbell and Ben Taylor, and co-executive produced by Sian Robins-Grace. The series is a production of Eleven for Netflix, and was directed by Ben Taylor ("Catastrophe") and Kate Herron.

The legendary Telugu film producer Daggubati Suresh Babu was recently in Goa as part of the 49th International Film Festival of India (IFFI). Along with his brother and actor Venkatesh, Suresh Babu is the co-owner of Suresh Productions, which is one of the largest film production companies in India. In a career spanning over three decades, Suresh Babu has produced/presented films like Coolie No.1, Malliswari, Drushyam, Eega, and Gopala Gopala, among others. He received the Nagireddy-Chakrapani National Award from the Andhra Pradesh government for his contribution to popular cinema in the year 2012.

Here, Suresh Babu shares his thoughts on the divide between Hindi and South Indian film industries, changing roles of producers, and how a new kind of OTT platform that he is working on can revolutionize the entertainment industry.


Excerpts

Q1. You have been associated with the Telugu film industry for a very long time. How has the role of a producer changed over the years?

A. The control has moved from the producer’s office to the director’s office, from the director’s office to a corporate’s office or a star’s office. Earlier the producer was the person who was putting everything into a film whether hiring the story writer, getting the story done, taking it to a star, director and technicians, putting the finances together, etc. But once the distribution started changing and once we started having people buying films instead of just distributing them the entire sets of dynamics changed. Now the story writer doesn’t come to the producer to narrate a story. He directly goes to the director or the star to tell the story. Then they set the things up and eventually get a producer to finance the film. 

Today the producer’s role is larger in the small films than it is in the bigger films. Now, there again you need a producer who brings in much more technical capabilities as the director and the star would then benefit from the involvement of a strong producer. But for the average big film the star himself has become the producer, the director is also the producer and so they have the complete control. 

Q2. There has been a great divide between the Hindi film industry and the movie industries in the South for the longest time. Have you witnessed any changes in the recent years?

A. Hindi cinema has always taken the best talent from the South, whether a great heroine, cameraman, or technician, because they could pay much better. That is still the case and it will continue. But our styles of storytelling have always been very different. The regional cinema is still very strong and it is very important for the country that it stays that way because only then you will continue to hear different voices otherwise the whole country will become just Hindi cinema. When the GST was being done I was very keen that the regional cinemas must be given a separate benefit. While some regional cinemas like Telugu and Tamil are quite strong, the others are much smaller. They all need support and the government needs to support them. Only if you support them the local voices and the local stories will be told and then of course they will be able to make a national presence. India is one country but we have so many different cultures and so we can’t just standardize and make one India culture. We need to have each region strong and we should see whatever way we can help it. 

Q3. How does the box office drive the content in today’s age and time? 

A. Today everybody is looking for a strong opening weekend and for that everyone’s focus is on putting an eye-catching trailer in place. Earlier the focus was more on songs and the poster to grab the eyeballs leading to the film’s release. The first weekend has become very important today is because the viewing habits of people have changed dramatically. You see nowadays not many people are watching cinema during weekdays because of busier schedules and heavy traffic. So the major business now happens during weekends. Also, there are so many alternative content options available at our disposal these days which has greatly reduced the numbers of tickets sold in cinemas. That’s something very alarming. Although, Baahubali 2 is the biggest hit but it is not the most watched film in the country in terms of tickets sold. The number of tickets sold has actually come down over the years and it is only the value of money that has gone up. We must now see how we can make more people come to the theatres otherwise cinema will become just a publicity platform for films to be watched on other platforms.      

Q4. Hindi cinema is witnessing a dramatic shift in the recent times. Today a Thugs of Hindostan fails but Badhai Ho creates new records. What are your thoughts on these changing trends?

A. I feel this trend will continue. Every few years you will have a big film that will bomb at the box-office even as small films do well. There is no denying that the people’s tastes are changing but I still feel that the audiences want to watch big cinema. There is no doubt that if you make the right big cinema they will watch it. But if you don’t make the right big cinema then you can’t expect people to spend their hard earned money on buying the tickets. We still need stars. Today, we might have characters which are stars like we have Avatar or Marvel characters but people always want stars. Take the case of cricket. There may be great cricket played all around but when Virat Kohli is batting everybody watches. We need to have stars and that’s what the media drives. That’s what everybody writes about. It’s certainly heartening to see that small budget films are doing well but we also need big cinema and it is true of the world of cinema at large. But it is also true that it’s becoming more and more difficult to put a big film together these days.

Q5. How are the technological advancements changing cinematic storytelling? Are there any disadvantages of relying so heavily on technology?

A. I think we have only just begun. It’s going to be on the rise in the times to come. It’s a pool that will help us tell some old stories better. You see we have told Mahabharata many times in many formats but the next versions will be really amazing. We are trying to do a mythical film on Hiranyakashyapa now which should to be really amazing. Now, VFX will help us tell the same stories much better than what they were told earlier and I am sure Artificial Intelligence with further will further help push the boundaries of storytelling. 

Speaking of disadvantages, in the times to come we may no longer be able to tell simple poetic stories. Or even if we tell them we will be using so much of technology that they might lose their essence. It is similar to asking ourselves is mobile good for us or bad for us? The fact is that as a society we have accepted it, whether it’s good or bad. So the thing with technology is that we have lost out on a lot of things but we have gained on something else. 

Q6. What do you think the future holds in store for the Indian entertainment industry?

I think going forth more OTT platforms will come and make a huge difference. There will be a blockchain type of OTT technology sitting on the top of OTT which will prove to be a real game changer. It will allow people to access more content and more easily. Also it will ensure that the content producers are able to generate the right amount of revenue for their content. We ourselves are currently working on such an OTT with blockchain technology. Once it’s ready anyone would be able to put their content on it and for every viewing you will get your exact value of money. I believe there is no accounting process than the blockchain. The blockchain will see that the ledger is fixed and if you want to change one piece of the block then you have to change the whole block. Hopefully, we will have it in place in another year.

Writing a movie review is different from giving a personal feedback. The review should be composed according to particular rules and principles, some of which are challenging and time-consuming. We've asked professional academic writers from WriteMyPaperHub.com to share tips on how to write a stellar movie review, and here they are.
Follow 5 Easy Steps for Successful Writing
  1. Analyze the plot. Consider the script of the movie or the literary work on which it is based. What was his plot, history, dialogue? Did it interest you? Was it plausible? Did you get all the information you need to track the content of the movie? Are the dialogues plausible? Is there any evolution of the artistic image in the characters? Is the plot interesting and plausible?
  2. Analyze the background. Is this a low-budget or high-budget movie? What were the previous works of actors, producers, and directors?
  3. Analyze the acting game. Determine if the acting was presented at the proper level. Did you trust the characters? It does not mean that you liked the way the character was portrayed. Did the actor's play help to believe in the reality of the characters in the film? Have movie characters been well played? Did they seem to be real people? Had the actors radically changed their appearance?
  4. Element analysis. Explore the artwork, scenery, and place of action. Do actions in the background distract or, conversely, gradually master your attention? Are they plausible or too overrated? Evaluate the costumes and props. What are characters wearing? How do their clothes fit their mood? Is there a change in costumes important and noticeable? How well does the requisite fit? Was it helpful or too obsessive? Consider how good the music fits into the movie? Does it turn your attention away, or vice versa, is too quiet? Does it help you understand the essence of the movie?
  5. Analysis of shooting techniques.Analyze the shooting methods. What techniques are usually used by the director or operator during the film process? Why does he/she use them and how does this affect the movie? What kind of shooting is used by the director/operator?  Study the tempo and structure. Does the movie go smoothly? Too fast or too slow? Does it go in a certain order or randomly?
Making a Review
  • Start with a preface. Tell readers about the history of the film, the expectations, the actors and those who participated in the creation of the picture.
  • Include in the summary a small but meaningful short description of the plot. Make sure the final picture is not declassified.
  • Do not use spoilers and do not point too many parts.
  • Discuss the different parts described above.
  • Try to link your output with input. Did movie justify your expectations? What is your verdict in general? Express your thoughts, reinforcing analysis and facts.
Last Minute Tips
  • Make the analysis engaging and exciting, and at the same time, bring the necessary information.
  • It will be useful to give time to plunge into the movie before you throw it all at once. You can understand what you could not understand before, and it can completely change your mind about the movie.
  • You probably have to watch the movie several times to catch all the moments.
  • Be sure to include or at least try to include both good and bad moments in the review.
  • It will be useful to take notes while watching a movie.
  • Make sure you spend enough time and efforts proofreading your review. To make things faster, use online grammar checkers to help you out. You can also address a writing service to edit your review just the way professor expects you to.
If you don’t have enough time to watch a new movie two, three times and later make an analysis, if you need a movie review written overnight, you can contact a professional and high-quality writing service SmartWritingService to do it for you or check what you’ve written and edit it. Make sure to submit your movie review on time. Good luck!
