Les Chevaliers du ciel (English - Sky Fighters) (8/10)

I happen to see this movie by chance...it was Independence day and we wanted to go out and watch some movie...with other options being typical masala movies like "Singhh is King" and "God Tussi Great Ho" , we decided to settle for this French movie. So there we were in Select City Walk with the tickets of this unknown movie.

A quick search on Google told me that it is a "French Thriller" movie...and I had no idea that I was in for such a great surprise...

The movie revolves around two pilots - Captains Marchellia and Fahrenheit - Marchellia had to shoot down a demo Mirage which has been brought to Farnborough Airshow - and this ultimately results into their expulsion from Services. Subsequently they get a chance to work on a secret mission and fight off the terrorists and save Paris.
While watching the movie - I was often reminded of Tom Cruise starrer Top Gun but this one differs from Top Gun as most of the shots in the movie has been shot in air while Top Gun had most of the stories happening in land.
Movie has some real breathtaking visuals of aerial landscape in and around France especially the one scene which has Alps...here it is..



The soundtrack of the movie is divine!...My favorite being  You're the conversation - I'm the game and Girl talk...

Being an avid cloud watcher myself , this movie came out to be a visual treat....

For all the dreamers out there - its a must watch movie for you.

Even one of the the most talked about couple of India - Priyanka Gandhi with her husband Robert Vadra  was there watching the movie...rumor mills tell me that the movie was specially screened for the couple since Gandhi family has always been so passionate with airplanes ...if its true are true then I am thankful to them!

Questions on its efficacy and impact are bound to happen. Especially when world's top leaders spend millions of dollars. Not counting their opportunity cost of millions of dollars which they could have used for their work.
I attempted my own rationale on 5 reasons which make World Economic Forum work.

How Branding can help your startup

I can bucket a startup entrepreneur into either of 2 buckets – one – Branding-is-for-Biggies! and second  who believe -Branding-is-important-after-Series-A-funding”. And first bucket is full till the brim. Let me start with a simple question with a possibly simple answer -

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.



Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
