83 Movie: The History Recreated Successfully

When Kapil Dev lifted the ICC Cricket Worldcup in 1983, I wasn't in this world. Actually, I came here after 12 years, but the 83 movie plays the role of a time machine and took me to that time and kept me there for some hours, days.

Kapil Dev and Ranveer Singh in 83 Movie

Yesterday, finally I watched the 83 Movie on OTT and I could say, what a movie it is. For the 1st time, when I watched the trailer, I was thrilled and after watching the movie, I'm speechless.

I was searching Ranveer Singh but found Kapil Dev there and surprisingly the Legend Kapil Dev was also there sitting in the audience. The movie is around 2 hours and 48 minutes long and I was looking for some more clips.

The way every character portrayed their role, is really commendable and I should have watched the movie in 3D for the real-time experience.

The creators worked really hard to recreate every moment from the shots of Kapil Dev while breaking the world record to running from the stadium, lifting the WorldCup. They have placed some real clips which made the movie realistic.

For months, there was a rumor that Charlie Cox is returning to MCU in his Daredevil character? Is here really returning to MCU with Spider-Man: No Way Home?

And the answer is YES. Yes, he is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a lawyer of Peter Parker. Yes, the guess was right, he was the one who came to meet Peter at the police custody.

How I'm saying this? According to a leaked review of Spider-Man: No Way Home, it's confirmed that the other two spidermen along with Daredevils would return through this movie.

After previously portraying Daredevil on Netflix, Kevin Feige, the director of MCU also has revealed that Charlie Cox will reprise his role as Matt Murdock in the MCU.

Kingpin AKA Wilson Fisk also returning to MCU through the Hawkeye series on Disney+. The actor Vincent D'Onofrio who has played the role of Kingpin in the Netflix series had tweeted about the show and from that, it's possible of his return.

Let's wait for the movie which is going to release on the 16th of December. And watch this exclusive clip of Spiderman and Doctor Strange from the movie.

N.B.: This blog is based on a movie review video of a critic on YouTube who had attended the premiere.

RRR Trailer Review: SS Rajamouli brings a power-packed film starring Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt

RRR stands for Rise Roar Revlot, a periodical drama from 1920 based on Indian freedom fighters Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. Here is my review of the trailer of RRR.

RRR Trailer Review- SS Rajamouli brings a power-packed film starring Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt

SS Rajamouli brings a power-packed film starring Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt in the lead role.

Today while I was scrolling the timeline on YouTube, I found the RRR Telugu trailer, and instantly I have watched this one. Then, search for the Hindi Trailer and found by the Pen Movies.

Trust me, it gave me goosebumps while watching this movie. I'm watching Rajmouli sir since Magadheera and the style, action, VFX, everything has changed now. Ajay Devgan is the master of that I think since Tanaji we have watched the level of VFX with Ajay Devgan Films and it's obvious that they must have done this with that perfect.

You can take a screenshot of every scene from the trailer and could make a wallpaper. That speaks the level of this film. Some people may complain about Physics and logic, for them I must say, Shut Up. Just enjoy the movie and keep your notebook for the class.

The Telugu dialogues are more impactful, just because of their language may be. But the overall trailer is really awesome. Waiting for the movie now.

Illegal Season 2 Review: Neha Sharma, Piyush Mishra and Akshay Oberoi’s Legal Drama

Illegal Season 2 Review: Neha Sharma, Piyush Mishra and Akshay Oberoi’s Legal Drama
Illegal Season 2 Review: Neha Sharma, Piyush Mishra and Akshay Oberoi’s Legal Drama

The 2nd season of Illegal is released on the 25 of November in 2021 on Voot Select. This legal-drama series features Neha Sharma, Piyush Mishra, Akshay Oberoi, Satyadeep Mishra, and Parul Gulati from the previous season in prominent roles. Some new actors were also introduced in this season. Here are my thoughts on this season, which I've finished watching.

During the 2nd lockdown, I had watched the 1st season of this Illegal - Justice, Out of Order. The 1st impression of this series was really good. Though I'm not a big fan of Neha, but she nailed it with her character Niharika Singh.

At the end of the first season, it was predicted that a new season would come. But the 2nd season had not continued exactly from that. It skipped lots of things. Janardan Jetitley is a Rajyasabha Member now and he has the wish to become the CM of Delhi.

Niharika had started her own law firm and trying to grab attention with some high-profile cases, etc. She is the mad lawer and for that, she could do anything.

The screenplay of this season runs quite faster and at some point, it's slower than required. But the overall season is good, not great in comparison to season 1. They announced the next season also, but I think this won't continue exactly at the end of season 1.

For days, I was waiting for the 83 movie trailer. And finally, it's here. Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev took us to the 1983 Cricket World Cup.



I was not born in that era. I never see Kapil Dev playing on the ground. But, it seems like we saw that young Kapil Dev there. And the ascent used in the movie is really awesome. I saw all characters playing their role very neat and clean.


Jiiva, Saqib Saleem, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jatin Sarna, Chirag Patil, Dinker Sharma, Nishant Dahiya, Harrdy Sandhu, Sahil Khattar, Ammy Virk, Addinath Kothare, Dhairya Karwa, R Badree, and Pankaj Tripathi also star in the film. Romi, Kapil Dev’s wife, will be played by Deepika Padukone.


I'm excited about the movie. I might not watch this in theaters, because it's not available here. Have to watch it on TV or Computer only.

Free Guy Movie Review

Free Guy Movie Review

Free Guy Moview Review by Sangram Keshari Senapati

Free Guy is an American science fiction action comedy film released in 2021. Of course, I've watched it in Hindi, which is also going to release on DisneyPlus on the 15th of October in 2021. Here is my review of this film.

Ryan Reynolds has played the main character of this movie who also produced it. Ryan Reynolds is one of my favorite actors after Deadpool. When we're talking about action, he is good at it. Recently in Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, we saw him in action and this film is more than that.

A few months back, I had watched the trailer of Free Guy, but couldn't get time to watch it. Somehow yesterday, I got the chance to watch it and saw it in Hindi. I don't have any idea about the voice artist of this character in Hindi, but it's similar to Hritik Roshan and he did it quite well.

The story of this film is based on a video game, where the main protagonist, our "Guy" who doesn't have a name was made to do a boring bank job. But one day he met his dream girl and decided to change his life and started upgrading himself.

At the same time, in the real world, one Game making company has stolen this game and remodified it with his idea. The creator of this game, Millie (played by Jodie Comer) was searching for proof and her partner compromised and was working in that company.

In the game world, our Free Guy started loving that girl who is an actual player. He started loving her, they both spent time in different places. The creator of the game Millie is that player whom the Guy use to love.

In the real world, the Guy got famous as "Blue Shirt Guy" and people started loving him. Before that gamers use to kill all non-playing characters without any reason, but after that, they started loving them.

Millie and her partner came to know that the Blue Shirt Guy is not a player, he is a non-playing character who upgraded himself by falling in love. Their original game was designed in that way, which means the company which released the game used their code.

The company that released this game, "Free City" was in the process to release the 2nd Part of the game, where they planned to replace all the characters from part1, which means the Blue Shirt Guy won't be a part of the new game. Millie told this to him and asked him to save his city.

People started to love this game because of this Blue Shirt Guy, so they don't book for the 2nd part, so the owner of the company decided to reset the game and Guy lost all his memories. But Millie kissed him, and his memory returned back, because this character was made in such a way that, he would upgrade himself in love.

The twist of this film is the last fight with DUDE (also played by Ryan Reynolds). They have used Captain America Shield and the hand of Hulk. Chris Evans, the actor playing the role of Captain America has done a cameo also.

Overall this film is a good movie and I would give a four-star to it. One star would deduct for the plot, but the screenplay and action scenes covered up everything.

Toofan Movie Review

Toofan Movie Review
Movie Review of Toofan  by Sangram Keshari Senapati

On the 16th of July, the new Hindi film Toofan starring Farhan Akhtar, Paresh Rawal, and Mrunal Thakur was released on Amazon Prime. Due to some work, I couldn't watch this film earlier, so I watched it on the 27th of July after watching Hungama-2 on the 23rd. Here is my movie review.

The film is based on Aziz Alli, a street fighter known as Ajju Bhai from Dongri aka Dubai of India. He wanted to live a respectful life, so choose to become a boxer. Nana Prabhu, a top boxing coach trained him and made him the state champion. The Nana came to know about Aziz's love affair with his daughter; so he insulted him and threw him out.

Then Aziz Alli aka Toofan choose to marry his girlfriend, but at the same time he had chosen to live a luxurious life with his wife, so fixed a match for money. The fixing story came out and got a ban for 5 years.

After 5 years, he struggled again to come back to the boxing ring and the whole story is based on this. It's quite similar to Sultan starring Salman Khan and Farhan's own film Milkha Singh. But the attractive and interesting part of the film is Farhan Akhtar's acting, body transformation, and Paresh Rawal sir's acting.

The film could be a shorter one, but overall it's a good movie and yes worthy watching. For this film, I would give it 4 stars. One star for Farhan's acting and the other three for the music, storytelling, and presentation.

Hungama 2 Movie Review

Hungama 2 Movie Review
Movie Review of Hungama 2  by Sangram Keshari Senapati

On the 23rd of July, the new movie Hungama 2 has released on Disney+ Hotstar. That day, I've watched this movie, but due to some work, couldn't write my review on it.

The main reason for me to watch this movie is Pranitha Subhash. So, that day only I watched the movie.

Pranitha debuted in Hindi Film Industry aka Bollywood through this movie and part from her, actors like Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Meezaan Jafri, Rajpal Yadav, Tiku Talsania, Ashutosh Rana, and Manoj Joshi are there. Akshaye Khanna appeared twice and Johnny Lever in a small role.

The whole plot of the movie is based on the old love story of Akku played by Meezaan Jafri. Pranitha had a baby girl whose DNA also matches with Akku. Paresh sir again this time confused about his wife's affair.

The story is not that interesting as compared to the old one; it's a one-time watch film. I would give this film a 3 Star; one for Pranitha, and two for the comedy, confusing plot, music and cinematography of the movie.

Shubhodaya Raja Special edition - Odia e-Magazine

From 2020 Durga Puja, we are publishing the monthly editions of Shubhodaya on every Sankranti. Here is the 9th edition and we shared some basic details of images that we placed in this Raja special edition.

Shubhodaya 9th edition Cover photo by Sambeet Das

The Cover photo of the 9th edition of #Shubhodaya has been designed by Sambeet Das, our main designer from Team Shubhapallaba. The concept is based on Raja Parba and the color combination and art define it all.

Raja Poda Pitha and Saja baja

Raja Parba, a unique festival celebrated in Odisha dedicated to womanhood. People may criticize our culture as Superstition or blind faith, but there is a scientific reason behind every belief. This festival is the perfect example. So, we placed this Image in Shubhodaya which described all preparation.

Food on wheel for Raja Parba

This time, the Govt. of Odisha also delivered Poda Pitha for Raja Parba. Here is one image by Manas Muduli sir placed in the 9th edition of Shubhodaya.

Mehendi Design for Raja Parba

Mehendi, is our traditional design to decorate hands, palms. Previously we're using different kinds of natural flowers and leaves, but not ready-made products are available. So, we used this photo from our writer friend Sushree in the 9th edition of Shubhodaya.

Alata Pindha Kuni Pada for Raja Parba

Alata, a red liquid color women and girls use to put on their feet to decorate. Now ready-made bottles are available. Here is the cute feet decorated by Alata taken from our writer friend Seenu Mohapatra placed in the 9th Edition of Shubhodaya.

She doesn't need any introduction, she is our favorite Padmini Rout and you would definitely love this photo of her with red Alata for Raja Parba. She is looking absolutely beautiful in this photo.

Raja Poda Pitha by Biswa Ranjan Sahoo

Poda Pitha, (ପୋଡ଼ ପିଠା) is a delicious Odia sweet delicacy served as snacks. It is the Godfather of Pithas in Odisha and famous for Raja Parba. This photo has been placed in the 9th edition of Shubhodaya taken from our writer friend Biswa Ranjan Sahoo.

Delicious Poda Pitha for Raja Sankranti

Look, how yummy this plate is looking. We love this Poda Pitha image, so placed this one in the 9th Edition of Shubhodaya. By the way, this photo is taken from Lipika Mohapatra.

Raja Pana by Lipsa Mohapatra

Raja Parba is incomplete without Pana and here we got one beautiful click of Pana Phul holding by the beautiful hand of Lipsa Mohapatra, our Puri girl. So, placed this one in the 9th edition of Shubhodaya.

Raja Parba wishes from Chandrakanti Pradhan while she was doing her COVID19 Duty as a nurse

While combining all the images, I found this one on my WhatsApp status, and look what she is trying to convey. In this image, we can feel the pain of her and her love for our culture. Chandrakanti is our regular writer and we always love her.

Soumya Mohapatra at Kalinga TV premises while celebrating Raja Praba in 2021

Like Poda Pitha, Pana, Doli is the most important thing of this festival. I couldn't find a more beautiful photo like this. Here is Saumya mam on Raja Doli.

Beautiful woman art by Bijay Biswaal for Raja Parba

Raja Parba is celebrated for womanhood and how could we prepare a magazine on Raja without a photo of Bijay Biswaal sir! So, placed this beautiful woman at the end of the 9th edition of Shubhodaya.

I took the 1st dose of COVISHIELD

Sangram Keshari Senapati June 09, 2021 1
I took the 1st dose of COVISHIELD

On the 8th of June, I took the 1st dose of COVISHIELD, the Indian vaccine for COVID19 at Madina Maidan, Bhadrak. From 7th June, the vaccination started in Bhadrak and I got the slot for 8th June.

I took the 1st dose of COVISHIELD

On 6th June, around 5.30 PM I got a phone call from my sister about the vaccination at Bhadrak, so quickly I checked the CoWIN portal and found no slots are available for the 7th. So, on 7th June, I booked my slot for the next day.

My slot was booked at Madina Maidan which is around 4 kilometers from my home. The time was from 9 to 11 AM and I reached there around 10 AM. But the queue was really big and there are lots of people whose slot was booked for 11 AM to 1 PM.

Madina Maidan in Bharak, where I took the 1st dose of COVISHIELD

After a long wait finally, I took the vaccine and the rest period was for 30 minutes. The whole process is so easy. Everybody could book their slot easily.

Then, in the night the temperature increased and body pain started. I knew about this, so took one paracetamol and slept. But the temperature was high the whole night, so again in the morning, I took another tablet. Then the temperature reduced to normal and I felt good.

That's all about my 1st dose of vaccination. You also take the vaccine in time when it's available in your region.
