Movie trailers

Trailer talk: ‘Madaari’, ‘Star Trek Beyond’, ‘Lights Out’

Irrfan headlines a vigilante drama, the USS Enterprise sets out in search of new adventures, and yet another evil spirit is on the prowl.

The week’s offerings include the Irrfan starrer Madaari, the new Star Trek adventure, and the Hindi dubbed version of Kabali.

Madaari Irrfan stars in and has co-produced Nishikant Kamat’s new movie, about a common man named Nirmal who becomes a criminal. Nirmal loses his son in a tragic accident and swears revenge against the minister who was indirectly responsible. Nirmal kidnaps the minister’s son, inviting the police force on his trail. The movie also stars Jimmy Shergill, Tushar Dalvi and Vishesh Bansal as the young victim of kidnapping.


Star Trek Beyond Justin Lin takes over directing duties from JJ Abrams in the third part of the rebooted franchise. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldhana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Deep Roy all return to the roles they played in the first two films. As an alien attack lays low the USS Enterprise, the crew finds itself on an unknown planet where a new adversary lurks. Sofia Boutella plays the alien Jaylah while Idris Elba has signed up for villain duties.


Kabali The latest Rajinikanth movie has been dubbed in Hindi. The movie’s plot has been as closely guarded as the Reserve Bank of India’s gold reserves, but we discern revenge for the death of a loved one as the reason for Rajinikant’s grey-haired Malaysian don to spring back into the game. Directed by Pa Ranjith, the movie stars Radhika Apte as the wife and Dhansika as the daughter.


M Cream Agneya Singh’s 2014 independent feature is finally getting a release. Distressed by a shortage of hash in Delhi, four friends travel to Himachal Pradesh in search of the potent Malana cream variety. The cast includes Imaad Shah and Ira Dubey.


Lights Out The latest supernatural horror film features an evil spirit that stalks Martin (Gabriel Bateman). His sister Rebecca (Teresa Palmer) sets out to investigate the story behind the spectre, who might be Diana, their mother’s childhood friend.

Some of the most significant innovations in automotive history made their debut in this iconic automobile

The latest version features India's first BS VI norms-compliant engine and a host of 'intelligent' features.

The S-Class, also known as Sonderklasse or special class, represents Mercedes Benz’ top-of-the-line sedan line up. Over the decades, this line of luxury vehicles has brought significant automotive technologies to the mainstream, with several firsts to its credit and has often been called the best car in the world. It’s in the S-Class that the first electronic ESP and ABS anti-lock braking system made their debut in the 20th century.

Twenty first-century driver assistance technologies which predict driver-behaviour and the vehicle’s course in order to take preventive safety measures are also now a staple of the S-Class. In the latest 2018 S-Class, the S 350 d, a 360-degree network of cameras, radars and other sensors communicate with each other for an ‘intelligent’ driving experience.

The new S-Class systems are built on Mercedes Benz’s cutting-edge radar-based driving assistance features, and also make use of map and navigation data to calculate driving behaviour. In cities and on other crowded roads, the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC helps maintain the distance between car and the vehicle in front during speeds of up to 210 kmph. In the same speed range, Active Steering Assist helps the driver stay in the centre of the lane on stretches of straight road and on slight bends. Blind Spot Assist, meanwhile, makes up for human limitations by indicating vehicles present in the blind spot during a lane change. The new S-Class also communicates with other cars equipped with the Car-to-X communication system about dicey road conditions and low visibility due to fog, rain, accidents etc. en route.

The new S-Class can even automatically engage the emergency system when the driver is unable to raise an alarm. Active Emergency Stop Assist brings the car to a stop if it detects sustained periods of inactivity from the driver when Active Steering Assist is switched on. If the driver doesn’t respond to repeated visual and audible prompts, it automatically activates the emergency call system and unlocks the car to provide access to first responders.

The new Mercedes-Benz S 350 d in India features another notable innovation – the country’s first BS VI norms-compliant car engine, in accordance with government regulations to control vehicular pollution. Debuting two years before the BS VI deadline of 2020, the S 350 d engine also remains compatible with the current BS IV fuels.

The S 350 d is an intelligent car made in India, for Indian roads - in the Mercedes Benz S-Class tradition. See the video below to know what drives the S-Class series by Mercedes Benz.
