Guillermo del Toro Birthday Special: From 'The Shape of Water' to 'Pan's Labyrinth', Here's Naming Some of His Best Works

Guillermo del Toro celebrates his birthday today and it’s time we plan a marathon of all his directorial attempts. For the ones who don’t know, this ace Mexican filmmaker is a former special effects makeup artist. His movies, though unusual and atypical are delightful. We’ll be honest, his movies are not everyone’s cup of tea and they are dark and even gritty at times. He paints a very different picture of the world and sometimes, it’s a refreshing change to witness. Pinocchio: Netflix Announces The Cast Of Guillermo del Toro’s Stop Motion Film! (Deets Inside).

As the Academy Award-winning filmmaker gets ready to celebrate his big birthday, we name five of his best works to date. Have a look…

The Shape of Water 

This Academy Award-winning movie was hugely praised for its innovative storyline and the way the director blended in romanticism with it. Well, he bagged the Academy award in the best director category for the same and that should explain its brilliance.

Pacific Rim 

Now that we are in 2020, we know for a fact that nothing is impossible and anything can happen anytime. Pacific Rim was all about monstrous creatures, Kaijus waging a war on our planet Earth. To tackle their invasion, governments of different nations build Jaegers, robotic war machines that are partly successful in defeating the creatures. But who wins the ultimate battle? Watch this visual masterpiece by del Toro to find your answer.

Crimson Peak

There’s a reason why we are asked to listen to elders. For the ones who don’t, like Edith in Crimson Peak, they end up paying a huge price for their ignorance. After ignoring her father’s warning, she marries Sir Thomas Sharpe only to realise that his secrets are scary and his mansion is filled with ghosts. Leonardo DiCaprio in Talks to Star in Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Nightmare Alley’ Remake.

Pan’s Labyrinth

This Spanish-Mexican production is about a girl who along with her mother moves in with her stepfather. She’s then led by a fairy to a faun who informs her that she’s in fact a princess. She’s then asked to participate in three tasks to prove her royalty. This dark fantasy movie won the Academy Award for best production design and best cinematography.

The Devil’s Backbone

The gothic horror directed by del Toro revolved around an orphan boy who’s taken to a shelter home. The boy soon has a run-in with the shelter home’s violent caretaker and he ends up uncovering the secrets of the school, including the youthful ghost.

Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar October 25: Kavita Kaushik Becomes the New Captain, Shardul Pandit's Distasteful Comment Fumes Naina Singh- 5 Highlights of BB 14

Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar witnessed quite a high-voltage drama on tonight’s episode. As Kavita Kaushik, Shardul Pandit and Niana Singh entered the show as wild cards. That’s not it, as the trio in front of host Salman Khan gets into a verbal war. It was Kavita and Naina vs Shardul. Having said that, inside the house we see Nikki Tamboli getting irritated in a new task which was all about ‘visibility on the show’. All in all, it was a power-packed Weekend Ka Vaar with Salman Khan. Check out BB 14 highlights below. Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar October 24: Salman Khan Slams Rubina Dilaik, Kavita Kaushik Makes a Virtual Appearance – 5 Highlights of BB 14. 

Salman Khan Gives Jasmin Bhasin An Advice

First things first, the host talks to Jasmin about how she always is in her own world inside the house and does not speak her opinion loudly. Jasmin in her defence tells Bhaijaan that she tries to stay calm as much as possible as she does not want to utter something distasteful. To which, Salman replies that she needs to vent out her feelings whatsoever on national TV.

Meet Wild Cards Kavita Kaushik and Naina Singh

Wild card entries Kavita and Naina make a sizzling entry on the show with a bang. Television’s two hotties dance to ‘Laila Mein Laila‘ and raise the temperature. The two also play BB Q&A with the host and Naina wins it. Well, it will be exciting to see the two girls getting locked inside the house and showing their true self amid hundred of cameras.

Check Out The Video:

Wild Card Shardul Pandit Ruins It All

After the hot performance of the two actresses, Salman introduces the third wild card, Shardul Pandit. Amid this, the host asks the lad about take on Kavita and Naina. To which, he replies that he has met Naina and she has also sat on his lap. This indecent comment by Pandit fumes Naina and she slams him. Even Kavita adds to this and tags him as a joker. Naina gets the last word and says that now she has mudda (topic) to indulge in a war with Shardul.

The Visibility Game

Bigg Boss gives a new task to the inmates where they need to unanimously decide and rank themselves on how much he/she is visible in the house in the 60-minute episode everyday. The housemates, as usual, were unable to come to conclusion and so the wild cards decide their fate. And the screen time is as follows – 23 minutes Pavitra-Eijaz, 17 minutes Rubina, 9 minutes Jasmin, 5 minutes Nikki and so on.

Kavita Kaushik Becomes The New Captain

The housemates meet the three wild cards and Salman then gives a task to the contestants where they need to vote and decide who among Kavita, Shardul and Naina they want in the red zone. The selected one will join Pavitra and Eijaz. Four votes each goes to Naina and Shadul and only one vote comes in for Kavita. As the FIR actress gets the least vote, she becomes the captain of the house.

That’s it, guys! Tonight’s Weekend Ka Vaar with Salman Khan was indeed power-packed with wild card entries presence. Monday brings nominations and we will also see the new entrants being their real self on national TV. Stay tuned!

Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Mrunal Thakur Graces the Season’s Finale, Stuns in Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu Outfits (View Pics)

Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Mrunal Thakur Graces the Season's Finale, Stuns in Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu Outfits (View Pics)

The first-ever digital Lakme Fashion Week ended on the night of October 25th and it was honestly a very underwhelming affair. With no major designers to participate and collections that weren’t jaw-dropping, LFW Autumn/Winter 2020 received a very lukewarm response and we hope it returns with a bang next year. The event that was opened by Kartik Aaryan and Manish Malhotra was closed by Super 30 actress Mrunal Thakur with Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu. The finale collection was a revelation and yes, we mean in a good way. Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Athiya Shetty Turns Muse for Aisha Rao and her Stunning Red Lehenga Should be Bookmarked by all Millennial Brides-to-Be (View Pics).

Rimzim’s collection was more about sculpted metallic silhouettes and signature cords, along with geometric and floral patterns. The silhouettes were contemporary but the treatment was very unconventional. The collection looked mesmerizing against a black backdrop and the visuals were quite fulfiling.

Next in line was a designer duo, Saaksha & Kinni whose collection was loaded with embroidery, mirror and thread work. Mrunal was the muse for both their collections and needless to say, she made the shift look effortless. From monochrome fashion to colour blocking trend, the collections looked radiant and Mrunal was the perfect thread who bound them together. Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Radhika Madan and Aparshakti Khurana Exude all the Radiant Vibes as they Walk for Sukriti & Aakriti (View Pics).

While the closing act was probably the best part of this entire event, we hope to see more designers get back in action for LFW Spring/Summer 2021. Until then, here’s a round of applause for brilliant designers Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu.
