    Dhoom 3 and Their Promotional Tactics

    The super hit franchise is back with its third installation and this time with Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan bagging the lead. The film of course does have Abhisekh Bachchan and Uday Chopra but that again is a mere formality in the plot, isn’t it? Accompanying them in a gorgeous avatar is Katrina Kaif who is spreading her magic with the song Dhoom Machale. While the film is predicted to make a collection of over Rs. 200 crore, the film makers are making sure they get the maximum leverage out of the coverage before the film even releases. This will begin once Aamir Khan pushes his genius marketing tactics for promoting the film. But the question really is that does the film need promotion? Banking on the star cast and the past hits by the same franchise, the film is a sure shot hit. Also, considering the fact that no big banners are launching any movies during the same time, the film will not be at the split ends at the Box Office.

    So the question still remains here that can the film break all records without being hard sold? Possibly yes and the reason for this is because Dhoom 3 has already sold off its satellite rights to Sony Max at a whooping price of Rs. 75 crore. And with brands like Mountain Dew and BMW coming into the picture as product associations, the film has gone beyond the mark of being a hit already. Though the formality of promotion would include new song teasers and launches to create excitement, the makers will make sure they do everything to make it big. Similar attempt was seen by the makers and the agency handling the social media of the film during the launch of the song Dhoom Machale. While the song has crossed a mark of half a million hits on YouTube, the trailer of the film has received over 10 million hits already. And since then no Indian TV channel has been missing out on the opportunity in showing either the teasers or the songs on their channels. Watch movie channels like Max and UTV or music channels like MTV, Mix and 9XM who have harped on the popularity of the song and have constantly fed it on their television schedule as well as on their online portals. The success of the songs and teasers will surely contribute to the success of the film, but will the film manage to break records and steal hearts we will find out on 20th December, 2013.

    Indian TV Shows – Yesterday And Today

    For over decades now Indian TV shows have been penetrating deeper in the Indian markets- both urban and rural. As a matter of fact, most of theHindi TV serials have a surprisingly larger audience abroad. Be it the NRI Punjabi’s in Canada or the London settled Gujarati’s. Miles away from home, watching the Indian serials and watching Bollywood masala films is their easiest expression of patriotism.
    Back home in India, the Indian serials are the daily dose of entertainment for majority housewives.This is however a money-making break for the struggling actors and creative personas who seek this chance as an extremely important source of revenue and employment.
    But these shows witnessed growth in the mid-nineties with the policies getting actively effective. This was the time, when production houses grew in a clutter to form camps. However, history states it with evidence known to all that BALAJI Telefilms emerged as the most powerful production house. Here began the rise of EKTA Kapoor when twelve of her shows were on air on various channels at the same time. The likes of Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and Kyunki Saans Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi became household names with these Indian TV shows running for over 7 years at a stretch. Some of the most popular names in the industry emerged from this company and BALAJI reined the Indian television for more than a decade. The mid 2000’s was a turning point with smaller forces coming into power, changing trends and opening up the Indian entertainment scenario with varied content. Suddenly, the larger than life homes and extravagantly dressed women and vamps turned into impressively real homes and well adequately dressed women. However, the levels of drama did not change drastically, with the rush of emotions.
    One of the notable changes on Indian television was in terms of the treatment of reality shows. Back then Sa Re GA Ma Pa on Zee TV and Boogie WOOGIE on SET India were the only reality shows that had the freedom to go with the flow of emotions. Unlike today, when even reality shows are scripted. Be it the cheap publicity stunts in BIGG Boss or quarrelsome judges on Indian Idol or Sa Re GA Ma Pa, it has been a rather peculiar growth of Indian television.And yet, not only have these channels adapted to the change but the viewers have accepted it in their own terms and continue to enjoy these shows on TV and online portals of these channels. What stands ahead for these viewersPsychology Articles, no one knows!

    Twiztids spiderwebs The Lyrics To seven By Boondox The Meaning Behind Horror Raps Eerie Text

    Its not news that horror rap is meant to be eerie. Its one of the few musical genres out there that can be understood by its name. That said, what else is there to songs like Twiztids “Spiderwebs” and ICPs “Riddlebox”? What about to words like those in Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics? Surely these song titles and lyrics (especially the lyrics to Boondoxs “Seven”) cant strictly be about what their titles imply. Lets take a closer look.

    An excerpt from Twiztids “Spiderwebs”:

    Im tangled in the spiderwebs and cant get out
    Its like youre breakin my heart when you open your mouth
    Its like youre so excited when youre bringin me down

    Clearly, Twiztids “Spiderwebs” is about a girl and heartbreak. The Spiderwebs that Madrox and Monoxide Child are talking about in Twiztids “Spiderwebs” are a device used to describe just how tangled they feel in this messy relationship. Twiztids spiderwebs in this case dont really exist at all, which actually is a pretty common occurrence to stumble upon when analyzing horror rap songs.

    For another example besides that of Twiztids “Spiderwebs”, lets examine ICPs “Riddlebox” song. If we were to look at the entire ICP Riddlebox album wed find many examples of this same occurrence, probably too many to discuss.

    An excerpt from ICPs “Riddlebox”:

    Turn the crank
    And experience whats in store for you
    Deep with the mighty Riddlebox

    The ICP Riddlebox Jokers card has to do with determining the fate of your afterlife. Will Juggalos spend eternity in eternal peace up in heaven? Or will they spend it burning down below? ICPs Riddlebox will be the decider, and such is the core subject of this song. ICPs Riddlebox (both the album and song) wouldnt be worth much if they were about a simple Riddlebox, now would they? Because Twiztid doesnt have a mythology to back them up, the meaning of Twiztids “Spiderwebs” is less obvious to fans.

    By turning the ICP Riddlebox into something with magical powers, theyve not only sparked interest amongst Juggalo listeners, but simultaneously turned the ICP Riddlebox into part of Insane Clown Posse and horror rap lore.

    Finally, lets take a look at lyrics to a horror rap song that on the surface appear to not be eerie at all, lyrics to Boondoxs Seven.

    A look at Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics:

    A demon spawn child of a bastard son
    Seven born at seven and the seventh child fathered one

    The point of seven in the Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics isnt as obvious as the meaning of Twiztids “Spiderwebs.” Yes we can see that seven makes a repeated appearance in the chorus lyrics to Boondoxs “Seven,” but what is the significance of the number seven in Boondoxs “Seven” lyrics? Could the use of this number in Boondoxs “Seven” Lyrics be meant to display the character in this song is perfectly evil? The number 7 is used to mean luck and power around the world

    Ways To Do Cartoon Drawing For Kids

    Cartoons are fun. Well almost. If you are like me you certainly love to watch cartoon figures. But drawing cartoons is another story particularly if you are not aware of the basics.

    If the thought of creating beautiful cartoon characters gives you high, read on, here you will find some tips that you can readily use to improve your skills and reduce the time taken to create beautiful cartoon characters.

    There are certain things that are same for every style of drawing, be it realistic drawing or cartoony, now we will go quickly through the basics before getting specific to cartoony style.

    1. Select your tools wisely. Clean your hands before starting your drawing. The paper you use for your work should be of good quality. Low grade, off colored paper will make your drawing look pale. Your first sketch should be made with light lines and for finalizing you should use deep-colored and prominent lines –so choose your pencils carefully.

    2. Many times beginners find drawing a smooth line difficult. Remember drawing smooth lines will be easier if you do not support your hand on your wrist like we are used to do while writing. Doodling and drawing some circular shapes just before you start will also help you to draw smoothly.

    3. Learn to draw facial features and hand carefully. Hands are more difficult. Experts often judge a person’s drawing ability from how well he can draw human hands. So practice drawing hands with care.

    4. Study about basic forms and proportions of human body. Learn about basics of human anatomy and various ratios of human figures.

    As a cartoon creator you will have certain liberties, you do not need to bind yourself with strict body proportions rules. You can draw four fingered (Thumb + Three) hand that makes your work a bit easier.

    But one challenge you will face while drawing cartoons –cartoon characters needs to be more expressive and certainly you have to create this expressiveness with some lines drawn with your pencil.

    Keep in mind that three areas of human face that play major role to express emotions are

    1. Eyelids (wide open, half closed, almost fully closed etc.),

    2. Eyebrows (raised, normal, crooked etc.) and

    3. Lips (forming downward bow, upward bow etc.).

    Other than these you can also use, hair (properly combed or ruffled), garments (well kept or torn) to create characters that tells a story.

    Hope you find this tips useful. Coupled with some practice these tips will help you to take your cartoon drawing skills to a new level. Enjoy the fun of drawing beautiful and expressive cartoon characters.

    Snow White and the Huntsmen

    A classical film redone into a thriller. Snow White and the Huntsmen shocked me it was one of the best movies I have seen all year. A Disney film redone into an exhilarating action packed movie. Kristen Stewart is at her best in this film. Personally I didn’t think she should play anything but in the Twilight Saga but she surprised me as she gave a stupendous performance. This movie is a remake of the classic Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This movie tells of an epic story about how a young girl defies her step mother and gets the whole kingdom back to what it was when her father ruled.

    Some people did not like this movie because they said Kristen Stewart acts the same in all her movies, I beg to differ she gave an astonishing and surprising performance in this exciting tale of love and adventure. The story line and the special effects were shocking and exciting. The white mystical creature in the movie was the most beautiful and epic part of the movie. It shows that no matter how small or big you are everyone and everything has a purpose in life. In the film, she walks up to this white mystical beast and it bows down to her and blesses her. At that moment the dwarfs would do anything for her because they realize she is the one who will restore their kingdom to the powerful and peaceful place that it was.

    The director of this movie couldn’t have picked a better actress to play this role. Kristen Stewart gives her most unexpected performance of the year. She has played in a lot of movies but this one makes it to the top. With the cast and crew that help make this movie it is one of the most amazing and theatrical remakes of a Disney film. I recommend this movie to anyone searching for an action packed film with drama and excitement. This movie has shown me that you are significant without a doubt. It will give you the courage to stand up and believe in yourself. That is what Kristen Stewart showed in this film.
