What is the best part of the movie MS Dhoni: The untold story?

Excellent screenplay

The screenplay of the film has been brilliantly executed by the director. The sequence in which the life events of “Mahi” are shown gives you a complete view of the Dhoni’s journey from bottom to top. It takes you way back to the school life of Dhoni and his passion for sports. What efforts he made, the decisions that led him to be Indian Cricket team captain, all that is excellently summarized in this biopic.

No one could have done it better than Sushant

Sushant Singh Rajput has played the role of Dhoni in this biopic and we’d have to agree that no one could have done it better. The face-morphing done in the events of cricket matches too was flawless and we couldn’t tell if it was really not him. Sushant has splendidly imitated the character of Dhoni from his accent to body language.

Witness the epic journey of “Captain Cool”

It has been quite a journey for MS Dhoni. We know him as a cricketer but we barely know what all he did in order to reach there. MS Dhoni h…

How does the new Google Pixel phone compare with iPhone 7? Is it worth a switch from iPhone to Pixel?

Some features that make Pixel desirable over iPhone areCloud Storage - Google offers unlimited storage of photos/videos at original quality whereas iPhone limits to 5 GB. VR -Pixel is made with VR in mind and the new VR headset would help many since Google claims it will be comfortable for users with glasses as well; so far no other VR can be worn comfortable with glasses. It’s also specified to be light weight and can be taken along during travels. The controller provided along with the gadget is known to aid in use of the gadget rather than the difficult controls in other VR gadgets. This is just the beginning of VR and we can expect more exciting things to come out of it.
Camera - DxOMark has rated the Pixel camera as the best in smartphone till date and that is something that no Nexus/Google phone has achieved so far. It’s certainly a big achievement for the Pixel and it’s not surprising that Google puts it in the promos left, right and center.
Google Assistant - Google Assistant is…

Retail Inflation Seen Cooling To One-Year Low In September

Bengaluru: Inflation in India is expected to have cooled to a one-year low in September as good monsoon rains kept a lid on food prices, a Reuters poll showed, possibly giving more room to the central bank to cut rates again by the end of this year. 

The recently formed Reserve Bank of India Monetary Policy Committee, under new Governor Urjit Patel, cut rates by 25 basis points to 6.25 percent in a surprise move earlier this month, after inflation hit a five-month low in August.

The latest poll of over 30 economists showed retail inflation probably eased further last month to 4.80 percent, the lowest since September 2015, from 5.05 percent in August. 

"The favorable impact of the monsoon is now coming through the system. We saw quite a strong deflation in terms of food prices in August. We expect that to continue in September as well," said Tushar Arora, senior economist at HDFC Bank. 

If the reading moderates in line with forecasts, it is likely to fan bets of further rate cuts…

New Delhi: Franco-Japanese auto alliance Renault-Nissan is recalling nearly 51,000 units of two entry-level cars Renault Kwid and Datsun redi-Go in India to rectify a faulty fuel system and add a hose clip.

While Renault India is recalling around 50,000 units of its bestseller Kwid, Nissan is calling back 932 units of Datsun redi-Go which was launched in June this year. 

Renault India said it is conducting a preemptive and voluntary inspection of select 0.8 L variants (800cc) of Kwid that were produced up to May 18, 2016 from October 2015.  

"As a proactive measure, a fuel hose clip will be added to these select cars along with the evaluation of overall functionality of the fuel system to mitigate any potential  disruption of fuel supply," the company said in a statement.

The affected cars will be inspected without any cost to the customers and carry out necessary measures, if required, it said.

"We are in the process of contacting customers, requesting them to come to deale…

Bharti Airtel's Debt To Rise By $2 Billion On Spectrum Buys: Moody's

New Delhi: Telecom major Bharti Airtel's debt will increase by $2 billion (over Rs. 13,300 crore) due to the recent spectrum purchase but cash flows from operations and monetisation activities are likely to reduce this level in next 6-12 months, Moody's Investors Service said on Wednesday.

Bharti Airtel, India's largest mobile operator with over 257 million subscribers, won 173.8 Mhz of airwaves for Rs. 14,244 crore in the just-concluded spectrum auction.

It acquired mobile airwaves in 1800MHz, 2100MHz and 2300MHz bands and now has 4G and 3G spectrum in all circles.  

"Although Bharti's debt levels will rise by around $2 billion in conjunction with the funding of its spectrum wins, this amount can be accommodated in the rating for a short time, as cash flow from operations and proceeds from monetisation activities are expected to reduce debt levels considerably within the next 6-12 months," Moody's vice president and senior credit officer Annalisa DiChiara s…
