83 Trailer Review: Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev took us to the 1983 Cricket World Cup

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.

Indian chess player Padmini Rout on Raja Parba by wearing Alata.

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.

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

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.

Are we considering Doctors as the 2nd GOD?

Sangram Keshari Senapati June 02, 2021 0
Are we considering Doctors as the 2nd GOD?
Are we considering Doctors as the 2nd GOD?

Are we considering Doctors as the 2nd GOD? If yes, then why we are getting such news? A few months back, we heard the news from Odisha that, a doctor refused entry into the labour room, Odisha man bites off the doctor’s ear. [ref]

Now, another news from Assam, A young doctor was brutally beaten by a mob and relatives of a Covid-19 patient after the patient died had at Odali Covid-19 care centre in the Hojai district of Assam. Just see this video, you can't control yourself.

Is he really responsible for this? Did he ask the patient not to take proper protection before going out? He was doing his duty to save the patient. During the studies, nobody is taught to kill someone. They are taught to save life at any cost, that's why some doctors are doing their job after beaten and harassed many times.

We are considering doctors as 2nd God and we are attacking our own God; why? Are they asked us to treat them as God? No. We are placing them in that position and we are responsible for this. Just look at these videos below.

After all these, Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam look into this matter and the police arrested 24 culprits who were involved in this barbaric attack.

The charge sheet will be filed, but trust me, nothing would change. The doctors would be treated like this again. It's our mindset which needs to change. Yes, some pharma companies and some doctors* are into some bad field, but all are not the same. And most of them are really good.

I know many of them personally. Some of my family members and friends are doctors and I know how they care for everything.

Yes, after death, I can understand the mental condition of the relatives. But have you ever thought about a doctor? How he felt after the demise of a patient? They are seeing more than one death every day, every hour. Do you know how they are affected by this? Some doctors are taking therapies for this kind of issues.

It's time to respect each other, to learn something from each other; Good things only. Yes, sometimes, we get angry at anyone, but we have to control ourselves.

About Shubhapallaba Publication:

I shared the same bench with Pranitha Subhash

I shared the same bench with Pranitha Subhash

I, Sangram Keshari Senapati shared the same bench with the Bollywood actress Pranitha Subhash at Rajarani Temple, Bhubaneswar.

A few days back, I saw a photo tweeted by Pranitha Subhash featuring Bernie Sanders next to her on a bench. Later she also quoted that tweet and said, "Haters will say it’s photoshopped". I thought to do some experiment and I took that photo same photo of Pranitha from her Maldives tour.

I'm not good at photoshop, but I tried my best and prepared that photo. The location of my photo is at Rajarani Temple, Bhubaneswar which I visited in 2019 with my friend Jagannath Panigrahi where he clicked this one.

The photo of Pranitha totally fit with mine while I'm looking at the camera and she is looking at me. If we compare as per the looks or as per the success, this could be possible, but in reality, it's not possible.

But, I've discovered another form of this photo; After seeing the photo, Pranitha mam may give this look at me and consider me as a creep. Anyway, it's just a photoshopped photo by a fan who fallen for her at the first sight in the Telugu Film Attarintiki Daredi of Pawan Kalyan.

I've shared this photo on my Social media profiles like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp status, etc and surprisingly some of my friends thought it's a real one. Some laughed, some trolled, but I'm happy with that.
