SRK First Indian To Use Video On Twitter
AGENCIES
MUMBAI, Jan 29: Twitter announced sometime back that it has introduced a new feature which would allow users to capture, edit and share videos right from the Twitter app. Twitter´s Mobile Video Camera and online editing experience lets you capture and share videos up to 30 seconds in an instant and express yourself much beyond 140 characters. Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is known for using social media platforms quite frequently, was the first Indian to have access to and use this feature.

Rishi Jaitly, Head - Twitter India and South-East Asia said, ´´Shah Rukh Khan has always been setting global standards for how not just actors but all public figures connect with their followers using technology. He was the first Indian to use Twitter audio card to send voice messages on Twitter, and is now the first Indian to use Twitter´s mobile video camera to delight and connect with his audience in a way they´ve never experienced before. Infact, he had shared with all Twitter engineers his wish-list of being able to connect with his fans on Twitter using both audio and video, when he visited our Head Quarters in San Francisco. And we were more than delighted to take his suggestion into consideration.´´

Baby : Patriot Games
Pragyan Thapa
KATHMANDU, Jan 27: The thriller Baby tries to fit itself as a basic genre film, almost without taking the trouble to say anything new under the tight economy of the espionage thrillers. And it’s directed by Neeraj Pandey who ticks off another thriller sub-genre from his checklist. His first film A Wednesday was loosely resonant of Michael Douglas and Robert Duvall’s 1993 film Falling Down, a mix of police procedure and a common man gone berserk plot, while his second film Special 26 featured con artists and pulled a cheat trick at the end. In Baby, Pandey juices up political and social commentary, moves them with swift pace, fills them with peaking tension and he does so by letting out every trick from the genre book.

To put this in a context is to say that Baby is another derivative film that’s strongly guided by a predetermined plot while the political and patriotic inferences it feeds are shady and are somewhat of a jumble. It’s highly imitative plot-wise, rising directly from the ashes of Zero Dark Thirty and Argo. But to say it’s unimaginative would be unkind because it’s an unconventionally entertaining package where director Pandey’s thing for the well plotted, edge-of-the-seat action presents a rare expedition for Bollywood movies where the mainstream is highly plagued by no-brainer/south material masala cash grabs.
