Talaash delivers both as a thriller and a mystery film. The mystery is as hard to solve as it is to predict when Sachin will retire; we heard that Rajinikanth and ACP Pradyuman watched the film together, and even they didn't find the killer before intermission. Speaking of CID, Talaash had the ultimate publicity campaign - they did everything except make Google Search rename itself to Google Talaash on 30 November, and the hype paid off.

Once in two years, you change your job. Once in four years, the World Cup comes along. Once in three years, Aamir Khan releases a movie. It's good he took time for Talaash, because a Rs. 40 crore budget takes time to collect. Here are the funniest parts of the budget; the ones that got left out of the actual balance sheet. Tell us if you can think of any more!
Reason #243545 why the LOL-scars are better than the Oscars: The Oscars just announce one winner. But the LOL-scars are awarded in India, and we love first, second and third ranks. So here are some gold, silver and bronze medal winners:

What was the reason that an almost-perfect looking team India surrendered to the Lankan lions in the WC finals, you ask? Here are 5 probable reasons why we feel India lost:
India is a tiger at home, and a bacterium abroad. After our embarrassing performances in South Africa and New Zealand, questions are being asked about whether our team is truly ready to play a cricket match anywhere outside the sub-continent. We think there is light at the end of the tunnel - we think that these 6 ideas will help India rise from the ashes and become a tiger everywhere.
We're so worried about his recent string of crazy activities that we think he might go too far soon. He might do one of these things, for instance:
After Arnab Goswami took Rahul Gandhi’s case in an interview (there’s really no other way of putting it) on Monday, we think that Koffee with Karan is way too boring. If we wanted to know random celeb gossip, we’d just read their tweets. But the way Arnab grills people, you have to admire him
A few days after Jai Ho's release, it is apparent that Salman's latest film will not touch the heights achieved by Chennai Express, Krrish 3, or Dhoom 3. It might not even touch Dabangg-2 or Bodyguard, and this is in 2014, when every other film hits 100 crores domestically. So why did Jai Ho fail to break all the box office records we thought it would? We aren't sure, but here are a few reasons.
