Hyundai i10 N Line 2020 UK review

  Hyundai i10 N Line 2020 UK review Gets the turbocharged engine the i10 always needed, but styling revisions, performance enhancements and a price it could do withoutThe N Line version offers only the very mildest sprinkling of extra sporting seasoning, then. It's competent and nice to rub along with, but to suggest that it grips, steers or corners in a way that smacks of a junior warm hatchback would be misleading.

Kargil Girl is based on the life of Gunjan Saxena , an Indian Air Force Pilot. The film features Janhvi Kapoor , Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi in the lead roles.

Bollywood’s pivot to streaming continues with a biopic that presents as an obstacle course of sorts. How to dramatise the trajectory of Flight Lieutenant Saxena, first woman to helicopter into combat for the Indian Air Force, without generating some inanely gender-flipped Top Gun rerun, and/or slipping into meatheaded militarism? Writer-director Sharan Sharma’s response is to follow the tried-and-tested contours of the biographical star vehicle – he avoids the structural risks of last month’s Shakuntala Devi – while relying on heart and good humour to lift his film over the aforementioned pitfalls. Little has been certain about 2020, but distaff applications for even administrative Air Force positions are surely set to go through the roof.

Audi E-tron S Sportback 2020 review

  Audi E-tron S Sportback 2020 review Clever electric drivetrain and torque vectoring result in great pace and engaging handlingThe deployment of the combined reserves is controlled by a newly developed four-wheel drive system. As well as offering three levels of energy recuperation, it also incorporates a new electronic torque vectoring system, giving the E-tron S Sportback the ability to individually control the amount of drive fed to each individual rear wheel with greater accuracy than any of Audi’s existing systems. It’s described as being significantly faster than any of its current mechanical systems, too.

Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena (1975—present) is an Indian Air Force ( IAF ) officer and former helicopter pilot. She joined the IAF in 1994, is a 1999 Kargil War veteran and the first woman Shaurya Chakra awardee.

In one poster Janhvi aka Gunjan Sacxena can be seen getting applauded by co-pilots whereas in I wanted to join Indian Air Force to serve my country: Pranjali Karanzkar. Now Playing01:04 Janhvi Kapoor -starrer ' Gunjan Saxena : The Kargil Girl ' is a journey about 'Ladkiyan pilot nahin banti'.

Appropriately, the narrative itself resembles a series of tests, locating its Gunjan (emergent superstar Janhvi Kapoor) within various institutions, then looking on in awe as she elevates herself. Amid the initial snapshot of family life – brother insisting sis would do better as a stewardess, mum worrying when her girl will find time to marry – the ever-sly Pankaj Tripathi stands out as Saxena’s shruggingly supportive dad. Once Gunjan passes into the IAF’s far less forgiving embrace, however, there’s an element of Private Benjamin in play. We’re cheering a tiny, doe-eyed creature being drilled out of apologising for herself on a base where there isn’t a ladies’ toilet – “because this place isn’t made for women”, as gruff CO Vineet Kumar Singh insists.

Honda E Advance 2020 UK review

  Honda E Advance 2020 UK review Short-range urban runabout is filled with interesting tech; too impressive to drive out of town for its own goodHonda certainly feels so: it points out that it could simply have strapped a battery under the recently launched front wheel-drive Jazz hybrid (longer and a bit more spacious in the back), but it instead chose to give the E a new platform to give it dynamically pure rear-wheel drive, plus a 50:50 weight distribution and MacPherson strut-type independent suspension at either end. The move away from front-wheel drive also allows the steered wheels to turn very tightly, which yields the taxi-beating turning circle of 8.6 metres between kerbs.

Public review Baaghi 3. AirportDiaries Janhvi gets clicked carrying her own pillow.

Sharma is smart enough to factor any residual viewer reservations around Kapoor’s cover-girl softness back into that CO’s antagonism. Yet his star puts in visibly hard yards – not least in the inevitable, irresistible training montages, set to Amit Trivedi’s fine songs – and grows more authoritative; dynamic stunt choppering helps, but Kapoor is also raggedly fierce in the scene where Gunjan finally breaks ranks to defend herself. Some sense of biopic predestination remains, perhaps as this brisk feelgood endeavour succeeds in getting its subject where she was going speedier than most. In doing so, Sharma adds his own achievement to those of his heroine: he’s overseen that rare Netflix Original not to feel at least a half-hour too long.

  • Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is on Netflix from 14 August.

Audi A5 Coupe 40 TFSI 2020 UK review .
Facelifted two-door trades on cool design and the latest tech, with this 188bhp mild-hybrid model tipped to be one of the most popular versionsThe A5’s cockpit is dominated by screens, with Audi’s excellent digital cockpit and a head-up display for the driver and a large centrally mounted infotainment touchscreen. The 10.1in system runs the latest version of Audi’s slick and refined infotainment system, which has plenty of features and is easy to use. That said, Audi has removed the control wheel function of previous models in favour of touchscreen controls – a move that's unlikely to be universally popular.
