queen of the indie jungle

Maxim’s turned 11 years old! Any wishes? Congratulations, Maxim! May you continue representing women and men correctly. May the years bring about change in the way we and society see women from all ages and demographics. Your film Lion has been nominated for the Golden Globes and the SAG awards. How does that feel? Were you guys expecting it? I am very happy that this film is getting what it truly deserves. I’m thrilled about its journey and love that the producers have taken it this far. This story is unique and it’s getting much deserved accolades. And you’re amazing in it. You’ve worked with filmmakers from all over the world. Who’s your favourite? I haven’t worked with Stanley Kubrick, so I can’t quote him, but Garth Davis and Yael Farber have been my mentors…

charm her over!

WANT TO ASK A LADY OUT BUT DON’T know how? No stress. Help is at hand. (PS: If you’re seriously seeking it in a magazine, you REALLY need help.) BE ORIGINAL In this land of Pritams and Anu Maliks think of the bonus points you’ll get for being an A.R. Rahman. Too much pressure? We’ll even settle for a Vishal Dadlani! Try an original approach. Eg: “What say you rescue me from dabba food/ my maid’s cooking tonight and pick me up for dinner?” She’s a lot more likely to say yes when you’ve got her to smile. BE FIT Call me shallow but I’m shallow with a fetish for a worked-out body. No, we’re certainly not asking you to have six-pack abs because who can dig into gooey chocolate delights with…

rum rush

Skip the Piña Colada and try this reinvented Rum Manhattan THE SMOOTH OPERATOR 60 ml Brugal 1888 rum 15 ml Carpano Antica Formula sweet vermouth 15 ml Amaro Montenegro 1 dash Angostura bitters Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir until chilled. Pour over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with an expressed lemon peel. WHEN IT COMES TO LUXURY SIPPING LIBATIONS, MOST OF US TEND to reach for top-shelf scotch, bourbon, or cognac. Rum isn’t even in the conversation. But while the “kill-devil” is best known for its role in easy-drinking party cocktails like the Dark ’n’ Stormy, the daiquiri, and the mojito, the islands’ favourite elixir offers far more sophisticated strains that can go toe-to-toe with the finest and most rarefied single malts. One glorious example is the $1,500 Papá Andrés…

the blockbuster sequels you can’t miss this year!

XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE (JANUARY) Directed by D.J. Caruso We know you’re already looking forward to this one marking Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut. From the trailer, the film promises classic XXX-style action and more this time around. RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER (JANUARY) Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson Alice is singlehandedly taking on the Umbrella Corporation in Raccoon City one last time—the final battle to the end. Set to the soundtrack of GnR’s “Paradise City,” we’ve already got goosebumps for this one. FIFTY SHADES DARKER (FEBRUARY) Directed by James Foley Part of the most controversial film trilogies of the past decade, this second instalment delves deeper into the complex world of BDSM-loving Christian Grey and his inexperienced lover, Anastasia Steele. JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 (FEBRUARY) Directed by Chad Stahelski Our favourite former hitman makes his retribution-worthy return. With the addition of Laurence Fishburne,…

dictator of decorum

How low should a suit jacket go? For decades the traditional answer was to the fingertips with your hands relaxed at your sides, but about 10 years ago American designer Thom Browne cropped the trad natural-shoulder jacket considerably. The odds were against him but his eye proved right; virtually everyone in menswear followed his lead to some extent and we saw a sea change in men’s tailoring. Now fashionable suits from the ’90s look like a Cab Calloway zoot suit. There is no exact length, but as a general principle I’d say your jacket should cover your ass. I’m recently divorced and want a new signature musk for my new life. What smells like confidence, wisdom and good looks without costing a divorce settlement? Divorce settlement sounds like GNP territory to me, but…
