Game Of Thrones Season 8 - End Game With Sinhala Subtitles



Aiyya Movie Review

Rani Mukherjee said this movie would be one of her best, but long gone are the days when an actor said that their film would be something new, and the film actually turned out to be worth the money. In fact Aiyya will be a huge disappointment for Rani and Anurag Kashyap’s fans. It is hard to believe that Rani, who has won awards for critically acclaimed roles said yes to the film. And what made Anurag Kashyap, who is the producer of the movie, think that a movie that has a female lead going head over heels for a man just because of his odour, would work at the box office?

The story sounds quite funny as a concept, but the jokes barely work. Meenakshi Deshpande (Rani Mukherjee) is a middle class Marathi girl, a librarian at a college.  She has five members in her family: A wheelchair bound grandmother who is blind, her father who smokes four cigarettes together, her mother who is obsessed with marriage, and her brother who’s only love in life is dogs. To escape the  craziness of her family, Rani lives her life in dreams, and in her dreams the only thing she’s doing is dancing and enacting her favorite actresses, Sridevi, Juhi etc. Then there is Maina, Rani’s best friend, who managed to thoroughly annoy everyone in the theater this writer was watching Aiyya in. The less said about her the better.

Meenakshi’s family are looking for a suitable groom but Meenakshi, who doesn’t believe in arranged marriages, is waiting for her prince and wants her dream wedding. That’s when South Superstar Surya (Prithviraj) enters. Surya is an art student, and the moment Meenakshi looks at him she falls in love with his tanned skin and body odour. Yes, you read that right. Body odour. By this time her family have found the ‘right guy’ Maadhav (Subodh Bhave) for her, and are rushing with her wedding. The rest of the film involves  Madhav running around after Meenakshi, and Meenakshi following Surya.

The entire film revolves around Rani Mukherjee, but there is some disappointment here too. Viewers expecting and encore of her livewire performance in No One Killed Jessica may be disappointed, but the fault lies more with the story than with Rani.  You can see that she has put in every effort but there is little that can save this movie. Prithviraj and Subodh hardly have a role in the film but maybe because Prithviraj is a huge superstar in the south he gets to mouth a few lines in the end. Subodh, as the simple guy Madhav, has even lesser to do than Prithviraj.

To sum it up, Aiyya has some good moments, almost all provided by Rani Mukherjee, and all of them in the first half but Aiyya’s story and film length could have used a helping hand. The item songs live up to their billing and Rani has performed the best belly dance this side of the Arabian Sea. But movies are about more than belly dancing and sadly for Aiyya and Rani, that is all people are going to remember.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
