  • Gold box office collection Day 4: Akshay Kumar film crosses Rs 50-cr mark

    first_imgAkshay Kumar has struck gold at the box office once again. Known to be the Bollywood’s new-age Bharat Kumar, Akshay is back with yet another film which is high on patriotism. Gold revolves around India’s first Olympic win as an independent nation, and the film is going great business at the ticket window.The sports drama, which opened to a smashing Rs 25.25 crore in Independence Day, has become the third highest opener this year, after Sanju and Race 3. It has also overtaken Singh Is Bliing (which earned Rs 20.67 crore on its first day) to become Akshay Kumar’s highest opening film ever.Despite a significant dip in the number in the consecutive days, Gold has crossed the Rs 50-crore mark within four days of its release. According to early estimates, Reema Kagti’s directorial venture has earned Rs 12 crore (approx) on Saturday, thus taking the total to Rs 55.25 crore (approx).The film revolves around independent India’s first Olympic gold win – a feat achieved by the Indian men’s hockey team in 1948 at the 14th London Olympiad. Akshay plays the role of the manager of the team, Tapan Das.It was a clash of the titans this year, as Gold locked horns with the other Independence Day release, John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate, which also opened to a phenomenal response at the box office. While Gold raced ahead of Satyameva Jayate in multiplexes, the latter was popular in single screen theatres.Gold, which marks the debut of television actress Mouni Roy, also starred Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh and Nikita Dutta in pivotal roles.advertisementMOVIE REVIEW: GOLDALSO READ: Gold true story – How independent India won its first Olympic goldALSO WATCH: Akshay Kumar is the real ‘Khiladi’ of Bollywoodlast_img read more

  • The Thunders Big Men Could Stop The Warriors Lineups Of Death

    As you may have heard, the NBA’s most unstoppable units reside in the Bay Area, in the form of Golden State’s small-ball “Lineups of Death.” Assuming those lineups are intact for the Western Conference finals, the Oklahoma City Thunder will have an interesting matchup on their hands in a series being billed as a battle of big versus small. In contrast to the Warriors’ small-ball lineups, OKC’s two most common postseason units have contained the hulking frontcourt pairing of 6-foot-10 Serge Ibaka and 7-foot Steven Adams.When on the court together for the Warriors this season, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green scored the most points per offensive chance (1.26) of any five-man unit in the NBA,1Minimum 200 chances, averaged between offense and defense. allowed the 13th-fewest points (0.83), and had the best per-chance scoring margin (+0.43).And that’s only the deadliest variation of the Death Lineup. Golden State also owned five of the next 10 best lineups by per-chance point differential, all of which contained a variation of Curry, Green and either Thompson or Iguodala or both. Four of those additional lineups featured one of Golden State’s traditional centers, Andrew Bogut or Festus Ezeli, as the lone conventional big; the other was a small lineup that swaps out Iguodala for guard Shaun Livingston. 3Curry | Thompson | Green | Iguodala | BogutGSW+0.34 10Lin | Lamb | Kaminsky | Williams | HawesCHA+0.21 11Curry | Thompson | Green | Rush | BogutGSW+0.21 Minimum 200 average chances between offense and defense.Source: NBA Player-Tracking Data 8Curry | Livingston | Barnes | Thompson | GreenGSW+0.22 With Curry injured for most of the first two rounds, those Lineups of Death haven’t spent much time fully assembled in the postseason. The Warriors’ most crucial three-man combos — Curry, Green and Thompson, and Curry, Green and Iguodala — have logged only 94 total minutes together in 10 playoff games thus far. (They still outscored opponents by 61 points in that limited playing time!) But after Curry returned for the closing two games of Golden State’s series against Portland, at least one of those trios was on the floor for 62 minutes — a total in line with the 27.7 minutes per game they spent on-court together during the regular season.All this is bad news for the Thunder because the Warriors have a history of going small to combat good teams with lumbering big men: According to the Lineup of Death’s origin story, the tactic was only fully realized last year when head coach Steve Kerr had an epiphany during the NBA Finals and moved Iguodala into the starting lineup. That’s when the record-setting Warriors really took off, first against Cleveland and then against the rest of the league. An inability to match up with the same strategy could end up being Oklahoma City’s undoing as well.But we shouldn’t assume the Thunder’s big lineup won’t be able to hold its own. During the regular season, only 19 five-man units2With a minimum of 20 chances, averaged between offense and defense. broke even against Warrior lineups containing both Curry and Green. OKC had two of them — No. 7 and No. 13 — and both were of the big variety that the team has been using extensively during the playoffs: Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Ibaka and Adams, with either Andre Roberson or Dion Waiters on the wing. So in the matchup of preferred lineups, the Thunder might not be quite as outgunned as it seems at first glance.Of course, there are a bunch of caveats to tack on here. We’re talking about only 60 to 70 chances of track record from the regular season, and lineup data is notoriously noisy anyway. Plus, even though the Thunder’s big lineup did stick with the Warriors, the Dubs swept the regular-season series anyway.But as an exercise in figuring out how a 31 percent underdog could fight those odds, things might begin with Oklahoma City’s ability to slow down Golden State’s Lineups of Death. And what extremely limited data we have right now suggests that they could fare better than most.Check out our latest NBA predictions. 6Curry | Green | Livingston | Iguodala | EzeliGSW+0.27 The NBA’s best regular-season lineups in 2015-16 2Lowry | Ross | Patterson | DeRozan | ValanciunasTOR+0.37 1Curry | Thompson | Barnes | Iguodala | GreenGSW+0.43 5Curry | Thompson | Green | Iguodala | EzeliGSW+0.30 4Lin | Walker | Williams | Batum | JeffersonCHA+0.31 LINEUPTEAMPTS/CHANCE DIFF 7Paul | Redick | Griffin | Stephenson | JordanLAC+0.22 9Paul | Redick | Crawford | Griffin | JordanLAC+0.21 read more

  • Tiger Woods to Open PGA Season at Torrey Pines

    Tiger Woods has not been seen on a golf course in more than a month, a period during which he said he was more daddy than golfer. And the change suits him well, he insists.At 37 with two children, Woods has mellowed some from his days of nonstop golf. He took a break from the game he used to dominate and hopes to regain. And limited off-season golf just might be the key to achieving his ambitions.“I didn’t play much golf after the World Challenge,” Woods told ESPN.com via email Friday. “I putted and hit some balls with [son] Charlie, but that was about it. Since it was Christmas break, I spent a lot of time with the kids, which was great. That was exactly what I wanted to do. Because I was healthy most of the year, I played a lot of golf and was ready for a break.”He said he focused on shots from 120 yards and in, as it was a part of his game that let him down at key points last year.“I did mostly fine-tuning after the break and continued working on my short game. I’m really happy where it is right now. I didn’t start practicing hard until the first week of January. I feel good about my game and I’m ready to get back to Abu Dhabi.”Woods will play there next week and open the PGA Tour the last weekend of the month at Torrey Pines, where he has won six times in his amazing career.“Obviously, I’ve had good success at Torrey Pines,” said Woods, who won the PGA Tour event there in 1999, 2003, ’05, ’06, ’07 and ’08. Further, Woods has been in the top 10 all but one time.Woods tied for third at the Abu Dhabi event last year, finishing two strokes behind a shot behind Rory McElrory, who also will make his season debut next week. He and McEloy will be grouped together for the first two rounds.Although he was coming off a victory at the World Challenge a year ago, Woods feels much better about his progress than he did then. He won three times on the PGA Tour in 2012, had nine top-10 finishes and was second on the money list.It is encouraging to Woods that he only had one injury all last season.“I was able to play and practice,”  Woods said “I was able to implement what Sean and I had been working on. It was the most I was able to play and practice in a long time, and it paid off.”He is the No. 3 player in the world behind McIlroy and Luke Donald, which matters to him, but not as much as winning major championships. The first opportunity is at the Masters in April. Last season he was in the mix of three titles, but did not hold his game together to win one.“I do focus on the majors because it’s the four most important weeks, but there’s also plenty to be excited about this year,” Woods said. “It’s the start of a new season, there’s a lot I want to accomplish and build on and I’m opening 2013 at a tournament I like. It’s pretty easy to balance everything out.” read more

  • Mindtree CEO on the way out as LT gains more ground in

    first_imgThe Mindtree logo. The company is fighting a takeover bid by Larsen & Toubro.Market grapevine doing the rounds is that a change of guard at Mindtree is likely to happen soon. It has been reported that talk about replacing CEO Rostow Ravanan is gaining pace even as Larson & Toubro (L&T) is gaining upper hand in the tussle with Mindtree founders.In a huge setback for the founders, Nalanda Capital, the largest institutional investor, sold its shares in Mindtree to L&T, helping the the engineering service conglomerate to notch up 51 percent in Mindtree.The ongoing rift between the two sides has many reasons, and Ravanan’s continuation as the CEO is one of them. The founders of Mindtree hold only 13 percent shares in the company. L&T is reportedly reviewing the management performance at board level and is keen on bringing a new CEO to take the company revenue to $1 billion, the Times of India reported.  Office of Mindtree Ltd.WikimediaEmotional appealsThe newspaper, however, said there is no confirmation of Ravanan leaving as the company has not found a successor yet. As per reports, the board wil decide on Ravanan’s continuation at Mindtree. L&T has already bagged three seats on the 12-member board and will be pushing their agenda with added force. L&T announced on April 18 that its initial goal was to secure a 26 percent stake in Mindtree from open market and high net-worth individuals. The company eventually wants to acquire 66.32 percent stake in Mindtree for which it has amassed a war chest of Rs10,700 crore.The founders of the Bengaluru-based company strongly opposed the takeover bid, touted to be the biggest in the Indian IT sector, trying to counter the takeover bid with emotional appeals to shareholders. However, L&T has been quietly going about the deal.last_img read more
