the bronzed goddess

This is your first time in Maxim . How does it feel? Excited, to say the least! Maxim has always featured strong women who are unapologetically sexy, real and comfortable in their own being, and to be a part of this family is an absolute honour. The whole team was highly professional and a delight to work with, which made my job easier. “There is something so romantic about beaches. Just imagine watching a movie under open skies as you cuddle.” You’ve been modelling for a while and now you’re getting into acting. How’s it shaping up for you? It’s in the initial stages at the moment and, for now, I’m taking in all the information and knowledge that I can. It’s a slow and steady process, and there’s still so much to learn,…

It’s been nearly 20 years since the 1998 World Cup victory in Utrecht, The Netherlands. It was a great tournament to play, the Stadion Galgenwaard packed to its 20,000 capacity with a fantastic crowd. Though it wasn’t my first big tournament—I’d played in the 1994 World Cup and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics—this was my first big tournament in front of a home crowd, and we were one of the favourites to win... after all, we were the reigning Olympic champions. Of course, Germany, Spain and Australia were in good nick, too. We had struggled a bit in the pool stage, we’d lost to the Germans and needed a big win against Korea—which we got. But, winning the semi-final against Australia by a margin of 6–2 was a confidence-booster. And, we needed…

the sensei who is forever

In a YouTube video titled ‘Akira Kurosawa’s Great Advice to Aspiring Filmmakers,’ Kurosawa’s languid discourse runs for a little over six minutes, and centres on a solitary point that all filmmakers must write and write prolifically. A particular example that he cites in great detail to illustrate his point is Honoré de Balzac’s rewriting process. Kurosawa narrates how Balzac would make corrections on the margins of his printed pages, and how he would then send them over to the printer again. As Kurosawa narrates the story, he pauses in between. It’s as if he intends the recipient of the video to reflect for a moment on how painful that process might have been. Among the gigabytes of video advice that floats around for aspiring filmmakers, this might come across as another unbiased…

best of the thirds

F1 2018: With years of refinement, the F1 series really has got its driving physics and visuals near-perfect.

your fantasy pitch

DRAGON QUEST XI: ECHOES OF AN ELUSIVE AGE One of the longest running and most beloved RPG (role-playing game) series of all time, the latest Dragon Quest entry is landing first on PS4. There’s over a 100 hours of content here for those who dive into this massive, beautifully cel-shaded world. The story is suitably cliché: an evil force is threatening the world, and you play a hero whose fate is tied into it all, surrounded, of course, by a huge cast of characters. It’s old-school in many ways, with turn-based gameplay, deep character levelling, crafting and inventory management. However, you can’t deny the dexterity of the world. It feels like a living, breathing place, and you can explore it by horse, boat and much more. The cutesy visuals may or…
