Captain Marvel Movie Review: Brace yourselves, she’s coming.

A decent set up for bracing the audience for something much bigger coming up.

Captain Marvel fills plenty of story gaps, of which the fans were craving throughout the Marvel movies, the movie sets it up just right as an origin story as well as being a predecessor to the release of one of the most anticipated films in the world. We understand the set and setting of the 90’s era gets exceedingly difficult, especially when the target audience is the millennials, and you need to connect with a feeling of nostalgia. Whenever you are handling something of this stature, things ought to be too much or too less, but Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck sure knows how to make the movie subtle yet intriguing.

Visually, the movie is a complete feast (and we aren’t even talking about Brie Larson 😉). The 3-D was completely worth straining our eyes for, beware as somehow many of the scenes were set up in low light and complete darkness, and quite a few moments were captured in space. The pace of the movie is consistent towards the end, and of course, you need to watch the post-credit scene as it’s a major plot point (and might make you jump) for ‘End Game’. There were less than even a few errors as we have witnessed in most Marvel movies and the movie gets a 100 marks for the character build-up of the most formidable Avenger yet, Captain Marvel.

With equal amounts of Whoa! Whoa! Woah! and an equal amount of Laughs’, Captain Marvel stays true to the signature portraying style of Marvel. The story although spirals backward, we believe there’s going to be a similar resemblance in ‘End Game’ one way or the other. Do make sure to watch the post credit scene, and you can skip the second one, it ain’t that great.

Pretty sure you have heard the phrase “way worse than Wonder Woman” by now, but what most people fail to recognize is that Wonder Woman didn’t have a complete cinematic universe on its shoulders. Take people’s advice with a pinch of salt and go watch the movie, you won’t be disappointed.

Overall Rating: 4/5

End Game’s Anticipation after watching Captain Marvel: 1000000000/5

Bhawani Singh Ji · Bravery of Jaipur · Jaipur · News · nostalgia

With Wing Commander Abhinandan’s return, Jaipur relives the memories of our Hero from the pages of history

Famous for majestic forts and palaces, Jaipur has its own significance in terms of its brave warrior stories. The stories when Kings of Rajasthan were fighting with bravery at the battleground. Not to forget that the ultimate charm of Pink city lies in its brave stories of the bygone era.

People travel through this city and explore the heritage while hearing the legends of the brave heart of the city. The one such story is of HH Brigadier Sawai Bhawani Singh MVC of Jaipur’s royal family.

bhawani-singh-4_1508.jpg

Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh was the last Maharaja of Jaipur, as the princely states dissolved at the time, he took the throne. The legacy of Jaipur royal family has been widely acclaimed around the world, but is in no way limited to palaces, Bhawani Singh Ji proved his mettle in the war against Pakistan in 1971. Bhawani Singh Ji commanded the 10th Parachute Regiment and captured Chacharo, Sindh, he pulled a crucial plug from Pakistan’s regime which ultimately led to India winning the war.

This was the biggest territorial conquest in terms of territory. The Chachro Raid of 1971 was Indian Army’s biggest Surgical strike in Pakistan for four days, the battalion infiltrated deep inside enemy territory and carried out raids on enemy positions. For his bravery and courage, the Maharaja was awarded the Mahavir Chakra.

Then were the times of newspapers, an article was published a day before his arrival to Jaipur after the war, about Bhawani Singh Ji arriving the next day. As Bhawani Singh Ji arrived at the Sanganer Airport, the people of Jaipur were overjoyed and welcomed him wholeheartedly, it took Bhawani Singh Ji the whole day as people all over Jaipur went out to congratulate him.

The people of Jaipur have always embraced bravery and patriotism, be it 1971 when Maharaja Bhawani Singh Ji came back to his home town Jaipur after capturing Chachro, or Abhinandan Varthaman’s homecoming in 2019. The blood of citizens of Jaipur will never run dry when it comes to celebrating the soldiers of India, every Jaipurite salutes the bravery of Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh Ji then and Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman now.  We have wholeheartedly celebrated the homecoming of our heroes.

Valentine Alert: Ideas to Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday

Valentine’s Day is here and lovers around the world are gearing up for the annual celebration of love. This is the day to tell the one, they are on your mind. But there’s a minor glitch.

This valentine may not be the ideal day to plan an over the board romantic date since it falls on Thursday! But don’t let that stop you from showing your partner a good time. Wondering what special can you do on a week day? We have got you some ideas that can make your Valentine’s Day in pink city make the cut. Checkithow !

For married couples and those living in, nothing can beat the intimacy of breakfast in bed. Prepare a healthy meal of things your partner loves. Decorate it nicely on a tray with a good morning note and some coffee or juice. A healthy kick start is best before the cheat meals that await you later in the day.

For those young love birds who live apart, a nice morning walk will suffice. Go to her place, wake her up with a sweet call, tell her to come down and walk along the streets. The fresh morning breeze, chirping of birds and motor sounds of the rising city will make the perfect companions for you two.

If you can arrange a car, then it’s even better. Take them on a drive to Jal Mahal or along the Central Park, the two prime locations of Jaipur that look absolutely stunning in the morning. Go another mile and take them on a long drive to Nahargarh Fort, watch the sunrise bring the whole city to life which is mesmerizing to watch. Bring a hot insulated mug of coffee and Maggi for a cozy breakfast. Share your food and spend some quality time in quiet together. Go home and come back to drop them off at work. Before they leave, gift them a nice outfit for dinner later in the evening. Don’t let them open the gift until later. Let the anticipation build for good!

At lunch, arrange for a dessert to be delivered at their desk. Order anything sweet they like. It can be a sweet, a cupcake, cookies or even ice cream. The thoughtful surprise will surely woo them. Add in some fresh flowers as well. Everyone loves a fragrant reminder of love on the most romantic day of the year. She will fall for your gestures over and over when her colleagues swoon over your little surprises!

For later in the evening, plan a happening night at a bar or lounge. Keep it a secret. Tell them to wear the gift you gave them earlier in the morning. Bars and pubs offer some exciting offers on Valentine’s Day for party lovers that you can take advantage of. Make time to browse in advance and book yourself before it’s too late.

Drink your fill and dance your hearts out with your lover in your arms. Let the party animal in you unleash itself. Have fun, sneak in some spontaneous romantic kisses, make the night count. Most of all, keep it all about both of you.

If you are not the party wild kind, then a quiet dinner at a lavish eatery can make a good choice. The Stag Café opposite Amber Fort is a chic place to eat under the starry sky. Take in the view of the brightly lit Amber Fort along with the intoxicating smells of food and cool night breeze.

Eating out may seem like a routine for long dating or married couples. So how do you spice it up? Recreate your first date! Take them to the same place, order the same menu and revisit your memories. Take pictures of the night. Make a deal of recreating your outings every once in a while. A cozy dinner at rooftop of your apartment, or the balcony can be a good option as well. Indulge in conversations.

Talk about the time that has passed and the future that awaits. Couples living apart can make a romantic night out of Valentine’s Day by packing take out dinner and going to some open public space to eat. This is good time to talk about your feelings. Say it out! Tell them how you feel. You’ll surprised how well it turns out without the mandatory lavish hangout at a restaurant or bar. After all it’s not the place but the person you are with who makes things special and out of the ordinary, isn’t it?

Things No One Tells You About – Jal Mahal, Jaipur

January, that time of the year when everybody be it Jaipurites or tourists always ask for this one place, Jal Mahal. Yes! Jal Mahal is in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan and no, it is not built on any island like other water palaces. This 5 storied building continues to stand still in Man Sagar Lake with 4 floors immersed in water and dare anyone come near it. You can watch, behold the sight and, capture its beauty only from a distance as it is too introverted to let anybody close to it. We’re sure you must have visited this eyeful multiple of times, but let’s enlighten you today on these unknown facts about your favourite “Water Palace”.

jal; mahal_1.jpg

  • Initially, Jal Mahal welcomed the royal family with open arms and let them have a gala time here. Back then it served as a host to duck hunting parties for the royals. Years passed by and it started getting shy. And now, you can only have a look at it wondering what makes this architectural marvel stand tall in the water body.

  • Come February, and you can spot large number of migratory birds dancing here and there, enjoying the serenity of water at Jal Mahal. This once again revives the liveliness in it.

  • Chameli Bagh of Jal Mahal was a grand spectacle to watch back when beautiful dance and musical performances painted this splendor in its own colours.
  • Built in red sandstone, Jal Mahal is one of the most photographed monuments in Pink City. With tranquil waters by the side and birds sitting on top of the chattris giving it a picturesque view, tourists and localites love to spend their soothing evenings here, clicking selfies with it in the backdrop.

  • Catch the sight of this exquisiteness this weekend with your loved ones, but only from the outside as no one can actually go inside it to see it.

Most people view the architectural brilliance of Jal Mahal from across the Jaipur-Delhi Road but if you take a walk for a kilometre or two into the valley behind the lake, its true beauty will reveal.

Did we just make you love Jal Mahal even more? If yes, then we think we have sorted your weekend evening plans! 😉
