Emraan Hashmi’s Rush Hindi Movie Review

Emraan Hashmi’s Rush Hindi Movie Review

Rush is a 2012 Hindi thriller action movie directed by the late Shamin Desai. The film features Emraan Hashmi, Aditya Pancholi, Neha Dhupia and Sagarika Ghatge in the lead roles. The story of Rush follows media, politics, crime and romance at the point of life and death.

Rush Hindi Movie Review:

‘Rush’, like Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Rann’ three years ago, rushes into the cut-throat world of TRP-driven competition among news channels where news, if not discovered is created in the newsroom. So Varma told us in ‘Rann’.

And now late director Shamin Desai’s ‘Rush’ takes us into the ostensibly murky chatroom politics of newchannels where news-baron Roger Khanna (Aditya Pancholi, unintentionally hilarious) gets reporters, civilians, politicians and criminals bumped off to make news. Just like that.

Far-fetched, yes. But ‘Rush’ has its adrenaline rushing moments in the second half when the narrative picks up momentum and moves steadily towards a climax that is not entirely edge-of-the-seat. But certainly the popcorn on your lap is likely to ignored for a bit as ambitious crime reporter Sam Grover (Emraan Hashmi) gets sucked into a web of crime created by his over-reaching …read more

Talk to Houston Criminal Attorneys Before Anything Else

Talk to Houston Criminal Attorneys Before Anything Else

If you’ve been charged with a crime, the police probably already have you in custody. You may be out on bail or a loved one may be helping you out with the legal side of things. Regardless of what the situation may be, you need to make sure you don’t say anything to the police until you have legal counsel by your side. Houston criminal attorneys can help you through the entire process, but only if they’ve been called in to help. That’s why they should be your first call upon arrest.

When you get arrested, everything can happen so fast. If you talk to the police, even in confusion, it can all be used against you in court. Anything you say can be misconstrued to put you in the line of fire for charging you for the crime. The best thing to do is wait for the Houston criminal attorneys you hire to come down to the police station and speak to you first. They can then help you talk to the police and tell you when you …read more

In March, I wrote a post that said, “March is the month when employers post the most ads for internships, therefore March is the best month to look for internships.”

Yes, that’s true, but even at this late date, you may still be able to snag a summer internship. And if you’re an employer—even for a small business—you still may still have the chance to hire an intern to get you through the season.

I recently spoke with Danielle Gruppo, founder and CEO of InternAlliance, an online platform that directly matches students with employers. It’s free for students and reasonably priced for small businesses, too.

Small Business Recruiting

In fact Gruppo, a small business owner herself, made sure her platform was accessible to small employers.

“They can sign up on a month-to-month basis,” she says. “They have unlimited job postings and unlimited student matchings.” Employers, large or small, can sign up on the site, or contact her directly.

“Small employers may not have the human resources team of large employers, but they have much to teach a student—how to maneuver through a small business; how to become an entrepreneur; how to do the books, or set up social …read more
