Kukku and Naina, an unhappy couple, travel to India to tell their parents that they want a divorce. But they have no idea that a bigger change awaits them at home.

The five-year marriage of Kuku (Varun Dhawan) and Naina (Kiara Advani) is on the verge of disintegration. The parents of the former – Bheem (Anil Kapoor) and Geeta (Neetu Kapoor) also want to separate. The ability to Jugg Jeeyo jug effectively showcasing the talents of its entire cast is one of its greatest strengths.

Director Raj Mehta pulled out all the stops to give Anil Kapoor some of the film’s best scenes and dialogue, making the most of his flexibility. The chemistry between Kiara and Varun is energizing, and unlike other rom-coms, it’s not used as a prop. She has powerful scenes. Neetu Kapoor is a joy to behold on the big screen, and Maniesh Paul is a natural at providing comic relief.

Kiara Advani gives a solid performance with every shot. Varun Dhawan’s performance in the film was not entirely satisfactory; there were instances where he could have done better. Neetu Kapoor is endearing and captivating, and she does a fantastic job in the role. When her character has the chance to take the lead in the second half, she does her best. YouTuber Prajakta Koli’s debut is solid, but there’s room for improvement. Maniesh Paul does the most satisfying job of portraying the flashy Gurpreet.

The creators give each archetypal issue a comedic twist – from intrusive aunts torturing newlyweds for “good news” to a woman marrying a man she doesn’t love just to be “settled”. The film constantly uses humor to shed light on several concerns. The entire story revolves around relationship issues that are difficult to resolve, but are nevertheless handled with enough skill to keep the viewer’s interest. There was also a small lag to the second half of the film, which could have been taken care of by tighter editing. The beginning and end of this family drama are excellent.

All in all, the film is perfect for a unique watch.

Film: Jugg Jeeyo jug

Director: Raj Mehta

Cast: Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor

Rating: 2.5/5

There are times in life when you feel overwhelmed. When older people meet their grandchildren or great-grandchildren, they feel like life has come full circle.

There is no sermon and the tone is progressive throughout the film. It is unclear if any of the apparent parallels between the central plot and the personal lives of the protagonists are truly intentional or simply coincidental. The climax feels somewhat odd and a bit of a compromise. Having to resort to judicial subjectivity to justify a verdict would only mean that the analysis of the law was inadequate in the first place. Moreover, the personal equation and ego of the protagonists takes precedence over the courtroom drama at the end.

Keerthy Suresh is the best thing about the film, looking thoroughly professional and carrying herself convincingly.

There’s no attempt to play gallery and she makes a good pairing with Tovino Thomas, who would probably have to cut back on work to make his characters unique and memorable.

Baiju Santhosh plays the other important role in the film as the lead attorney, establishing great camaraderie with the film’s protagonists. Rony David, Vanitha Krishnachandran, Suresh Kumar, Sreelakshmi and Kottayam Ramesh as magistrate have played their relatively minor roles well. And there’s Anu Mohan, sporting a common expression throughout, making her character darker than expected.

The Buffalo Bills pretty much have their roster for training camp next month.

Many consider the Bills the best team in the NFL. Some think they would have won the Super Bowl if “13 seconds” against the Kansas City Chiefs had never happened.

The Bills had a 2022 NFL Draft that went as planned. Wide receiver might have been a position the Bills would have considered in the second round, but the board just didn’t drop the way they wanted (if they had that position in mind).

Cornerback was the only big need and they filled it by drafting Florida’s Kaiir Elam 23rd overall.

Running back James Cook (Georgia), linebacker Terrel Bernard (Baylor) and wide receiver Khalil Shakir (Boise State) were the Bills’ next three picks. They also drafted out-of-state punter Matt Araiza, aka “Punt God.”

One thing the Bills do every spring is introduce rookies to Buffalo food, specifically wings and blue cheese.

Blue cheese is the number one condiment in Buffalo and Western New York. Ranch isn’t exactly a fan favorite here and believe it or not, some of the Bills’ 2022 draft picks had never had blue cheese.

They tried La Nova wings and blue cheese and the reviews were all very positive.

My favorite was Shakir who admitted he had never tried blue cheese because people kept saying it tasted like spoiled cheese, but he loved blue cheese.

Offensive tackle Luke Tenuta even said he didn’t like ranch and blue cheese.

Make Buffalo already proud!

Howard Marks said it well when he said that, rather than worrying about stock price volatility, “the possibility of permanent loss is the risk I worry about…and that every practical investor that I know is worried”. When we think of a company’s risk, we always like to look at its use of debt, because over-indebtedness can lead to ruin. Above all, Time Watch Investments Limited (HKG:2033) is in debt. But does this debt worry shareholders?

When is debt a problem?

Debt helps a business until the business struggles to pay it back, either with new capital or with free cash flow. If things go really bad, lenders can take over the business. However, a more frequent (but still costly) event is when a company has to issue shares at bargain prices, permanently diluting shareholders, just to shore up its balance sheet. Of course, many companies use debt to finance their growth, without any negative consequences. When we look at debt levels, we first consider cash and debt levels, together.

Check out our latest analysis for Time Watch Investments

What is Time Watch Investments’ net debt?

As you can see below, at the end of December 2021, Time Watch Investments had a debt of HK$15.6 million, compared to HK$7.75 million a year ago. Click on the image for more details. But he also has HK$1.05 billion in cash to offset that, meaning he has a net cash position of HK$1.03 billion.

SEHK: 2033 Debt to Equity History June 6, 2022

A look at the liabilities of Time Watch Investments

According to the latest published balance sheet, Time Watch Investments had liabilities of HK$288.7 million due within 12 months and liabilities of HK$82.1 million due beyond 12 months. In return, he had HK$1.05 billion in cash and HK$303.6 million in debt due within 12 months. So he actually has HK$982.4 million After liquid assets than total liabilities.

This excess liquidity is an excellent indication that Time Watch Investments’ balance sheet is almost as strong as Fort Knox’s. Given this fact, we think its balance sheet is as strong as an ox. In short, Time Watch Investments has clean cash, so it’s fair to say that it doesn’t have a lot of leverage!

In fact, Time Watch Investments’ saving grace is its low level of leverage, as its EBIT has fallen 40% in the last twelve months. When a company sees its profit reservoir, it can sometimes see its relationship with its lenders turn sour. There is no doubt that we learn the most about debt from the balance sheet. But you can’t look at debt in total isolation; since Time Watch Investments will need income to repay this debt. So, when considering debt, it is definitely worth looking at the earnings trend. Click here for an interactive preview.

But our last consideration is also important, because a company cannot pay off its debts with paper profits; he needs cash. Although Time Watch Investments has net cash on its balance sheet, it’s always worth looking at its ability to convert earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) to free cash flow, to help us understand how fast it’s growing. builds (or erodes) cash balance. Over the past three years, Time Watch Investments has actually produced more free cash flow than EBIT. This kind of high cash conversion gets us as excited as the crowd when the beat drops at a Daft Punk concert.

Summary

While we sympathize with investors who find debt a concern, you should bear in mind that Time Watch Investments has net cash of HK$1.03 billion, as well as more liquid assets than liabilities. . The icing on the cake was converting 114% of that EBIT into free cash flow, bringing in HK$99 million. So is Time Watch Investments’ debt a risk? This does not seem to us to be the case. When analyzing debt levels, the balance sheet is the obvious starting point. However, not all investment risks reside on the balance sheet, far from it. We have identified 1 warning sign with Time Watch Investments, and understanding them should be part of your investment process.

In the end, it’s often best to focus on companies that aren’t in debt. You can access our special list of these companies (all with a track record of earnings growth). It’s free.

Quick Review: Jayasurya’s Star ‘John Luther’ Is Worth a Unique Watch | John Luther film review https://kitewatch.com/quick-review-jayasuryas-star-john-luther-is-worth-a-unique-watch-john-luther-film-review/ Fri, 27 May 2022 11:47:55 +0000 https://kitewatch.com/quick-review-jayasuryas-star-john-luther-is-worth-a-unique-watch-john-luther-film-review/ In previous Jayasurya outings, we’ve seen the actor at his emotional best – a struggling alcoholic, an RJ with a speech impediment, and a successful footballer losing his battle with depression.

In previous Jayasurya outings, we’ve seen the actor at his emotional best – a struggling alcoholic, an RJ with a speech impediment, and a successful footballer losing his battle with depression.

However, in Abhijith Joseph’s “John Luther” he doesn’t show many of these emotions, instead focusing on being a tough cop determined to do his job.

The film, which is largely set in the foothills of Munnar, begins with a bang, wasting no time in telling the audience that the film will be full of suspense. It follows a bus navigating a hairpin curve that is forced to stop halfway when the driver and passengers hear an unexpected noise, resembling a tire burst. However, the scene turns dark when the passengers find a corpse on top of the vehicle.

We are soon informed that there were two people involved in the accident, which caused one person to fall on the bus. The other person, however, disappears. Circle Inspector John Luther (Jayasurya), who is investigating a political murder bid in the area, takes on the case. The Inspector begins to follow every clue, leading him on a wild goose chase in the opening scenes.

He soon begins to pick up the pieces, when a series of other missing man cases begin to pile up under his jurisdiction. Deepak Parambol as Police Inspector Felix, is also involved in the investigation.

However, at this point the script begins to falter as the director tries to squeeze a lot of plot lines into one main narrative. It’s a challenge for a newbie and Abhjith is to be appreciated for trying, but his attempt to direct an investigative thriller on a large canvas feels like a burden on himself and on viewers. If the movie started out with a bang, it wastes a lot of time trying to find closure, resulting in lag, despite a decent amount of twists.

The subject matter is not fresh and does not stand out as missing man cases and serial murders have become fodder for Malayalam cinema many times in the recent past. However, it achieves some novelty when John Luther goes partially deaf due to an incident during the investigation. How he manages to solve the case despite his disability is interesting to watch.

Jayasurya didn’t fail to impress, but his usual magic seems to be lacking in the film, forcing him to have a tougher demeanor. His expressions are nevertheless correct. Deepak Parambol has the chance to improve his range as he is doing a good job as a police inspector. As the father of John Luther, Siddique does a brilliant job. Although Dhrishya Raghunadh (John’s sister) and Athmeeya Rajesh (John’s wife) have little to do, they play their roles convincingly. The background score is effective even if it tends to be shocking at times.

Apart from a few flaws and a story that can seem repetitive, going to the cinema to see the film will not seem like a bad idea.

Pet parents always feel a bit apprehensive when introducing a new furry baby to their children. It’s no wonder, then, that the moments when their pets become friends bring them immense joy. There are times when they also capture those moments and share them online. Just like this video which shows a big pooch cuddling his little puppy brother for the very first time.

The video is posted on an Instagram page dedicated to the Pooch brothers named Chase and Chester. “What can I say…sometimes we’re cute,” reads the caption, which is written while imagining a dog’s thoughts.

The video opens to show text, “just walked in on…” The video then continues to show two dogs sleeping in a bed while cuddling. The text further reveals: “The first hug from our boys.

Take a look at the heartwarming video:

The video was posted a few days ago. Since sharing, the clip has racked up over 45,000 likes and the numbers are only growing. The sharing also prompted people to post various comments.

“Stop it!!!! Stop it right now! My heart can’t take it,” one Instagram user wrote. “Oh my heart,” posted another. “Cuteness overload hurts me heart,” said a third. “Awwww, my heart,” commented a fourth. There were others too who expressed their reactions with “aww”. Some also did so by sharing emoticons of heart.

This is a preview of the 2022 St. Pölten Challenge – you can read our full race reports on how Nicolas Mann made his mark in the men’s race while Lucy Buckingham survived a late scare to win the Women’s Pro title.

The Austrian town of St. Pölten has hosted major triathlon events for many years. Historically linked to the M-Dot banner, the first St. Pölten Challenge took place 12 months ago.

It was a race that saw Anne Haug (GER) overtake Imogen Simmonds (SUI) in the very last stages of the race. In the men’s race, Frederic Funk (GER) blew through the peloton on his bike to win by almost five minutes.


Start time and how to follow live

The Challenge St. Pölten will take place on Sunday, May 29, 2022.

The race start time is 06:30 local time. This corresponds to 0530 in the UK and 0030 Eastern time.

The race will be streamed live (embedded below), and also accessible via the Challenge Family website under the Live tab, with a timing/tracker link.

The race begins with a 1.9km swim lap, but with a twist. Starting at Vienhofer See, athletes will exit after approximately 1km, then run approximately 200m to a second lake, Ratzersdorfer See, to complete the opening discipline before arriving at T1.

The bike course is also a ride, mostly flat and fast for the first half, before some decent uphills and downhills through the Wachau World Heritage area.

The race course includes two 10.55 km laps in the historic town of St. Pölten.

PRO Men

No Frederic Funk this year (he will run at home at 70.3 Kraichgau), but third since last year, Maurice Clavel (GER), returns.

A member of the hep sports team, Clavel, 34, achieved the biggest success of his career in November 2021 when he won the IRONMAN Africa Championship in Port Elizabeth. He recently warmed up at the iconic Buschhutten Triathlon in Germany (eighth), but this will be his first long-distance race of the year. [UPDATE – Apparently Maurice will not be starting due to illness].

As expected, many German and Austrian names are set to race on Sunday. Notable among them include Andreas Bocherer (in his retirement season) and Nils Frommhold. They won the previous IRONMAN 70.3 event here in 2015 and 2016 (Böcherer) and 2017 (Frommhold).

Andi Boecher

Other names trying to overthrow the Germans will be Giulio Molinari (ITA), third in 2018 and Tokyo Olympian, Lucas Hollaus (AUT), who finished second at the IRONMAN 70.3 Zell am See last year.

While on the start list, Tom Davis opted to skip the race after his strong championship performance last weekend in order to focus on his preparations for Challenge Roth.

PRO Women

Barely a week after The Championship, Great Britain Lucy Buckingham will be looking to extend the form she has shown there in Austria – and a podium finish in the process. No Sara Perez Sala this week, so all indications are that it’s probably going to be a lonely day…hopefully to the finish line, from her perspective. With, at the time of writing, modest temperatures predicted, conditions also look good for Lucy.

Having gotten COVID just before the Championship, we’re going to assume that Amelie Watkinson (NZL) won’t be able to start here either, especially since she should be one of Nicola Spirig’s pacemakers in the Sub8 project very soon. Horrible timing, heal Amelia quickly.

Grace Thek (AUS) was eighth at Samorin, but if Watkinson can’t start then you have to make Buckingham the favorite to win this one – a result that would see them climb to second place in the Challenge Family World Bonus rankings.

Prize money: what’s at stake?

The scholarship on offer this weekend is €19,000 – with each of the winners taking a €3,500 share of that total

Total funds will be paid out in six depths, as follows:

  1. €3,500
  2. €2,100
  3. €1,400
  4. €1,150
  5. 850 €
  6. 500 €

Of course, thanks to training from the Professional Triathlete Organization, the financial rewards for performance don’t just come from day-to-day performances.

The PTO Global Ranking will see a total of $2 million awarded at the end of 2022, based on the final ranking of these point tables. The rewards can be substantial, with moving up or down the ranking system potentially earning you more than any individual event.

As a Challenge Family event, there is also a third potential revenue stream for athletes, through the Challenge the family world bonus!

Challenge Family is offering a bonus pot of $125,000, which is paid out in the form of $25,000 / $16.5,000 / $12,000 / $6,000 / $3,000 to the top five ranked male and female athletes over the course of the Challenge Family / CLASH Endurance racing season.

This is a preview of the IRONMAN 70.3 Kraichgau 2022 – you can read our full race reports on how their home wins were impressive for Laura Philipp and Justus Nieschlag.

Having already previewed Challenge St. Pölten, there is a second middle-distance option to watch live on Sunday, courtesy of IRONMAN 70.3 Kraichgau in Germany.

The race will see the welcome return of Laura Philipp and the interesting prospect of seeing how one of the stars of the Arena Games Triathlon series performs for nearly four hours, rather than nearly 10 minutes of racing.


Start time and how to watch live

IRONMAN 70.3 Kraichgau will take place on Sunday, May 29, 2022.

The race will start at 08:30 local time (CET) for the Pro Men, with the Pro Women starting five minutes later. This corresponds to 0730 in the UK and 0230 Eastern.

The race will be broadcast live, with the event being the last of 11 IRONMAN 70.3 events to air in 2022 under a new partnership with Outside TV. You can watch for free via a web, mobile or connected TV application.

As always, the ever-reliable IRONMAN Tracker is the perfect data complement to support your viewing. If you don’t already have it on your phone, where have you been? !

Pro Women

After Gustav Iden’s successful return to racing on Sunday, Laura Philip likewise bounce back from the disappointment of not having started at St George, inspired by staying at home?

After announcing earlier this week that she was taking it ‘slowly but surely’, she posted on Instagram this week: ‘After a few promising workouts I decided to take the plunge on Sunday and test form left after covid break.

Laura knows the Kraichgau event well – winners in 2017 and 2018 – and despite her problems in recent weeks, knowing that Team Philipp is unlikely to take unnecessary risks to rush, she will of course leave as the favorite of the race.

IRONMAN 70.3 Marbella winner Nikki Bartlett (GBR) is on the start list and will not race as she is now preparing for IRONMAN Frankfurt at the end of June.

Winner of the Challenge Roth 2018, Daniela Bleymehl (GER), makes a quick turnaround after finishing seventh last weekend in the Championship, while Philipp will have a sporting teammate, Anne Reischmann (third this weekend in France), also on the course.

It is, however, difficult to predict anything other than a clear victory for Laura Philipp here.

Pro Men

Although illness and a puncture ultimately ended his day in the Championship, it should also mean that Frederic Funck is fresh and can’t wait to get going this coming weekend. One of the strongest riders of the moment, he will seek to take the lead of a bike course in the region of the “land of a thousand hills”. Probably with a new valve in this tire…!

Frédéric Funk - The 2022 Championship

An interesting and familiar name – in a very different racing format – is Justus Nieschlag. The ‘Mr Podium’ of Arena Games triathlon racing, he’s not completely new to the format either, having finished second to Rudy Von Berg at the Skoda TriGames Mandelieu in 2020. He certainly has the skills to have a future at longer term in this format.

“It has been a while since my last middle distance race in Mandelieu, France. I’m really up for the race in Kraichgau to see how I do over the 70.3 distance in the strong starting field. My objective is clearly to attack in front and to race for victory. I am well prepared, so the man and the equipment are ready!

Justus Nieschlag Cervelo TT Bike

The race will unfortunately be missed Mika Noodtas we reported earlier this week, who would certainly have been a top contender for the podium, but will have some swimming strength – which will likely be welcomed by Nieschlag, courtesy of Florin Salvisberg (SUI), who recently finished third in the Challenge Riccione.

Who will win? You would have to think that Justus Nieschlag will save time (60 seconds, maybe) on Frederic Funk in the water. Funk is one of the best riders in the sport – but as we’ve seen in Arena Games and World Triathlon events, Justus has a lot of power in his arsenal, even if the race format/bike style is not its standard.

A bumpy course and a peloton that seems to be breaking on the bike, I would have to give Frédéric the advantage to reach T2 first, given his format-specific experience. He destroyed the field at the Challenge Walchsee by bike, the European Championship in 2021 for example.

Currently number 26 in the PTO rankings – and a middle-distance specialist – I would have to go with Funk to bring him home, but I think the motivation Nieschlag will have drawn from his early season exploits, could make things very interesting. . On paper at least, he seems to have plenty of tools that could make him a better performer in this format, should he choose to stick around.

You can click here for the full start list.

Prize money: what’s at stake?

The purse on offer this weekend is $30,000 – with each winner taking a $4,000 share of that total.

In addition to the money, there will be a total of six qualifying slots (three MPRO / three FPRO) for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in St George, October 28-29, 2022.

The total funds will be disbursed in eight depths, as follows:

  1. $4,000
  2. $2,750
  3. $2,000
  4. $1,750
  5. $1,500
  6. $1,250
  7. $1,000
  8. $750

Of course, thanks to training from the Professional Triathlete Organization, the financial rewards for performance don’t just come from day-to-day performances.

The PTO Global Ranking will see a total of $2 million awarded at the end of 2022, based on the final ranking of these point tables. The rewards can be substantial, with moving up or down the ranking system potentially earning you more than any individual event.
