Heropanti movie review

Hi friends,

How did your weekend go? Mine was pretty relaxed and all I did was read books and detoxify myself. After spending two super lazy days, I thought of doing something productive and hence went to watch Heropanti.. :D, the latest bollywood flick featuring Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon. Did I like it? Probably yes...and though there were lots of good and not-so-great and some pretty lame parts about the movie, it surprisingly manages to pull off well.

I am no movie critic and I don't care about their opinion either. I am just telling you my honest opinion as one of the public who happened to watch this movie.

What's the movie about?

'Heropanti' is the story of two young conflicting protagonists, and their battles with society.

My opinion about the movie

Heropanti truly stands true to its typical Bollywood-ish name.It is a full masala entertainer. You can simply sit in the hall munching on popcorns and enjoy a bit of everything right from drama, light humour, se…

The Simplest way to relax in Adversities

Many times we are faced with certain adversities in life, that it becomes difficult to feel hopeful and positive about any aspect at all. You might feel stuck, irritated and impatient about things not working out in your favour. Most of the times when I am faced with such critical situations, I tend to panic and even face difficulties in breathing normally. Can you see the adverse impact of stress here, as what it can do? It can screw up even a normal and natural process like breathing!
When we are in stress, our breaths become shallow and that impacts our blood pressure and other body parts too, as they get less than normal oxygen supply.

It is really important to focus on your breathing, because from my experience, I have seen that my breathing pattern actually is an indicator of my state of mind. When I am happy and relaxed, I take normal paced deep breaths, when I am tense, my breathing becomes shallow and fast, when I feel exhilarated about the speed in activities like runn…

7 Lies You should Stop Telling Yourself!

When you aspire to alter the course of your life, be successful in your business, start a new venture, you may find the task quite challenging. You naturally start developing a sense of self-pity and automatically start neglecting the reasons that might be inhibiting you from enjoying a successful life.

According to Maria Robinson:

“You cannot go back and start a new beginning, but you can always start today and create a new ending.”

Sometimes it is good to take some time off your regular routine and observe your life to know what exactly has been holding you back, and then rectify things accordingly.
Many times knowledge of the things you may not want to know, but need to, can give you that necessary kick start and get the stuffs moving in your life. There are many lies that we keep speaking to ourselves, and no matter how well we can justify them, deep down in our hearts we know well that we aren't being truly honest to ourselves. Here listing below are few of those common lies…

Bliss in Perspective

To see a world in a grain of sand
and heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palms of your hand

Sailing the Boat of Life

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

While going through my daily dose of motivational reminders, I came across this wonderful quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, and couldn't stop myself from marvelling the simplicity and beauty of these words. There is a difference between mere drifting and sailing the course of your life.While drifting can be easy, it is aimless and certainly wouldn't make you see any difference in your life. You leave your life on chance; if its a gorgeous island that you land on, you call it mere luck, whereas in cases of crisis like thunderstorm you curse your fate.
Sailing purposefully, involves taking control of the path you have chosen and determinedly following it, irrespective of whether the conditions and circumstan…

While the former helps you kill your time and get rid of occassional boredom, the latter if done the right way, can possibly and powerfully transform your whole life in the ways that can only leave you spellbound.

I do make it a point to visialize my goals everyday and while browsing to find more effective techniques for the same, I came across the following article by Jack Canfield. I found it quite amazing and can't wait to add his pointers to my visualization practices. Have a look at the article and hia step-by-step guide below:

You have an awesome power that most of us have never been taught to use effectively.Elite athletes use it. The super rich use it. And peak performers in all fields now use it.That power is called visualization.The daily practice of visualizing your dreams as already compl…
