76th Independence Day: Top 5 patriotic films to watch with friends and family

It is appropriate to remark that Indian cinema has played a major role in reminding citizens of the necessity of patriotic duties in their everyday lives. The film industry has done a commendable job of putting together sometimes-daunting yet inspiring reflections of the socio-political history of the country, which has generated awareness as well as groomed Indian citizens to do better. While some films narrated and made us aware of the historic political situation in some parts of India, others imparted the right idea of patriotism into our hearts.

The Internet broke only a few hours after the teaser for the timeless Hindu Saga ‘Adipurush’ was released and memes trolling the poor VFX and copied scenes started pouring on social media.

Directed by Om Raut, Adipurush has Telugu star Prabhas as Lord Rama and Saif Ali Khan has been cast to play the role of Lankesh Ravana. Kriti Sanon will be seen in the film as Sita.

Given the Prabhas’s fanbase, a lot of hype was created for the movie and once the teaser was released, people just could not control what they saw. Several elements of the film including the VFX of the film, Saif Ali Khan’s hairstyle, and the movie looking much like a video game began mushrooming on several social media platforms.

A Twitter user wrote I think they wanted to make a horrible movie but instead managed to make it worse. Another one compared Saif’s hairstyle to those of Mughal invaders.

Twitter also saw a bunch of memes on how the movie’s scenes were copied from Hollywood movies and series like King Kong, and Game of Thrones. While many were worried about how the producers made such a mess of VFX after spending a sum of more than Rs 500 crore, as it looked like an animation movie.

A tweet reads, after watching this teaser my Respect for Chota Bheem, Little Krisha, Jai Hanuman and Bal Ganesh increased by 100000%…..Hats off to Animators.

Making fun of how unreal the VFX was a Twitter user said, excellent VFX in Adipurush teaser. The VFX artist must be a topper student at White Hat Junior.

Adipurush will release on January 12, 2023, in Hindi and Telugu, along with dubbed versions in Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. Earlier, the movie was set to release on August 11, 2022, but got delayed later as its release date coincided with that of Laal Singh Chaddha.

Punjabi singer Alfaaz

Punjabi singer Alfaaz aka Amanjot Singh Panwar has been admitted to the hospital after he was allegedly hit by a vehicle at a local Dhaba in Mohali on Saturday. According to the reports, the Putt Jatt Da singer was rammed into a vehicle outside Pal Dhaba on Banu-Landran road.

Popular singer Honey Singh took to social media on Sunday night to give an update on Alfaaz’s health. Reportedly, when the Haaye Mera Dil singer was leaving an eatery with three of his friends, he saw Vicky, a former employee of the Dhaba having an argument with the Dhaba’s owner to settle his dues.

So, Vicky requested Alfaaz to mediate between the two but when he refused, the former attempted to run away with the owner’s tempo and hit the singer while reversing the vehicle and fled the spot.

The Yaar Bathere singer suffered injuries on his head, arms, and legs. His friends then rushed him to the Fortis hospital in Phase 8, Mohali, where he is undergoing treatment.
