The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) – Hollywood movie review

“I was stupefied by the brilliance of Leonardo DiCaprio and I really want him to grab an Oscar for this film. He plays the role of “Jordan Belfort” in this movie who is person who wants to live a luxurious life and ends up in the Wall Street to make a fortune with stock broking. The movie was very hilarious with many adult comical scenes and dialogues. The screenplay was a delight to watch and the movie gave me a glimpse of an American dream.” says Yusuf.in’s guest poster Jagdeep Kumar. Here’s what he reviewed about this amazing movie…

The cast was well setup with the likes of Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, Matthew McConaughey and Kyle Chandler. Johan Hill nailed the role “Donnie Azoff” with his comical sense and cool acting. The movie would be a shock to all DiCaprio fans since he pulled of comedy with ease and he was on fire with his brilliance and skills throughout the movie. I would like to emphasize on his acting skills since you would be surprised to see a scene where he has done something mind blowing which I haven’t seen any actor do it. I am not able to express the scene in words but you would know it when you see it. I couldn’t even imagine how hard it could have been for him to enact that scene. Margot Robbie played the role of “Naomi Lapaglia” and she was beautiful and too sexy. Her outfits complemented her beauty and she was mind blowing in the movie. The movie was at pace from the start with many hilarious and crazy moments but at the end there was a pinch lengthy scenes which were not essential. Overall the movie was awesome with some splendid work by the actors and it would have been possible without the director “Martin Scorsese”. Hats off to the director and DiCaprio for creating a master piece which surely will go into the books of one my favorite movies which I enjoyed watching. 

I would rate this movie 4 star out of 5.  How much would you?

Things people did when Gmail went down

We all know Gmail and Google+ services went down for about 50 minutes yesterday ~1900 GMT. Personally, it didn’t affect me in anyway. Official news from NDTV India – http://www.ndtv.com/article/world/google-fixes-gmail-after-brief-outage-around-the-world-475218

What did you post/share when you found your Gmail account was not accessible?

Social Media – A presentation

Today, I was looking at the files in my computer that can be removed to get some space on hard drive and I chanced upon this presentation from 2010 that I made on the topic Social Media – the history and how it is currently and how corporates can define and implement a social media strategy thereby leveraging it to their business – simple by reaching out to customers/future customers directly!

I tried using SEOSlides to display this over WordPress but it’s a bit tedious to do so – I’d have to export to PDF, upload to SEOSlides – but I require a license key (upto only 3 imports, duh!). So, I went over to Google drive and took to embedding the presentation here. Voila.

Here it is:

Rush (2013) – Hollywood movie review

Rush. Yes, that is a right name to the movie filled with pure adrenaline rush. It sure gave me some goosebumps because this is the first movie that I watched at a theatre in the United States!

Every race sequence from how the drivers prepare, from the busy pit-stops and how each F1 driver is mad to accelerate around every corner of the track.

So, about this movie, this movie is not about F1 races and neither is about all the technicalities in an F1 race but a very few is shown during some race sequences. This sports-drama movie is purely about the rivalry that was between two legendary F1 drivers – Niki Lauda and James Hunt during the 1976 F1 season- which goes back to the formula three days in 1970.

Daniel Bruhl as Lauda is so amazing in every frame that the calculative mindset of Lauda is depicted with perfection; Chris Hemsworth is at his charming best and his face shows the thrust that Hunt puts on the acceleration of the cars. The dramatic scenes at the hospital with multiple treatments being done in Lauda shows us the determination that the Austrian had. The movie engages us till the end for the final decision taken by Lauda, who makes a comeback in a very short span of time after a major accident!

Rush. Everyone’s driven by something. Reminds me of a life question: “What drives you….”

I’d generously give it a rating of 8.5/10. How much would you?
