Aamir Khanâ€™s latest movie Dangal is all set to take the box office by storm. With the return of Bollywood to Pakistani cinemas, this movie should pack the punch needed to get people back into the queue for cin-ema tickets. This biographical sports drama follows the life of Mahavir Singh Phogat (played by Aamir Khan) who taught his daughters Geeta and Babita wrestling. The two daughters went on to win many an accolade in their careers, putting in gold-winning performances at the 2010 Commonwealth
Games. Most remark- able about the production process is the astounding transformation Aamir Khan went through to play the part of Mahavir. He gained 30 kg to play the lead in his mid-life, and then lost that excess and honed his body into a wrestlerâ€™s dream to play Mahavir in his youth. A perfectionist, mand one of the few method actors in Indian cinema, it remains to be seen whether all the hard work and toil pays off for the bottom line.
CHRONICLE OF A CHRONICLE OF A
â€”BY GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZÂ
Chronicle of a Death Foretold is a pseudo-journalistic reconstruction of the murder of Santiago Nasar by the Vicario brothers. This crime fiction is a real page-turner, condensing a remarkable drama within a short 120 pages. The Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez works magic with his words.
The novel follows a non-linear narrative, starting with the day of the murder. When her husband rejects Angela on the day of her wedding having discovered that she has shared a bed with a man before, her brothers avenge their family honour by killing her former lover Santiago. The story was inspired by an actual family that the author knew.An extremely relevant story for a culture such as ours, where sto-ries such as these can be found in the newspapers far too often.

THE MINDY PROJECTÂ
If you are ever feeling low, something that comes hand-in-hand with the drop in temperature cou-pled with shorter days, this is the show for you. The series follows OBGYN Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) as she tries to balance her per-sonal and professional life. Surrounded by quirky colleagues, thestar of the hit TV Series The Office is at once the actor/writer/director/creator of the show. Her larger than life, slightly self-obsessed personality will bring a smile to your face no matter how hard the day has been. The show ran for three seasons after it was can-celled by FOX, only to be picked up by HULU. Picked up for Season 5, if you have never watched it I suggest you buckle down over a weekend and binge through. With a South-Asian face as the lead, we all might find something or the other in common with Mindy as she galli-vants around the big apple.
