Automobile Lovers ! your darlings are back at 12th Auto Expo.

Delhi is again in news for some commercial reasons. The 12th edition of the Auto Expo, jointly organized by CII, SIAM and ACMA, accredited by OICA and due to begin in the first week of February is expected to revive the auto industry and give a fillip to the Indian economy.

According to a CII statement, as many as 70 new vehicles will be unveiled, with 26 global unveilings of which 15 are cars.

The event will be attended by 1100 exhibitors in the motor show and about 55 exhibitors in the components show will display a staggering array of vehicles and components in much larger space and there will be a special theme pavilion to promote hybrid and electric mobility.

Vikram Kirloskar, President, SIAM, said that the last year was a very tough year for the auto industry on the whole with factors such as the slowdown in the economy, rising fuel costs, less disposable income and poor sentiment negatively affecting sales.

However, he said, the industry was optimistic and had been working very hard to produce better products to boost sales.

Stressing on the importance of the sector, he said the auto industry is the locomotive of growth for the Indian economy.

Addressing the gathering, Deep Kapuria, Past President, ACMA, said the auto components industry is recognized as a leading quality-oriented industry and that over the years, the value-add in components has risen.

On display at the Show will be over 500 plus new technologies and over 5000 products.

Describing the components sector as a "sunrise" sector, he said the sector has tremendous potential.
Describing it as a 'unique and special show', Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General CII, said that this is the first time that the show has been split into two - components and motor show -as the growth in the magnitude of the Show warranted it.

While the Components Show will take place from 6-9 February in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, the Motor Show will take place from 7-11 February at Greater Noida, Delhi-NCR.

The expected footfalls in the Motor Show is about 1 lakh per day, and about 10,000 per day in the components show, which is primarily a B2B show.

1936: Rolls Royce Phantom III replaces Phantom II

The Rolls-Royce Phantom III was introduced in 1936, it replaced the Phantom II and it was the only V12 Rolls-Royce until the 1998 introduction of the Silver Seraph. Although chassis production ceased in 1939, cars were still being bodied and delivered in 1940 and 1941. 

1936: 20/25 replaced by Rolls Royce 25/30

  • The Rolls-Royce 25/30 built between 1936 and 1938 is an updated version of the 20/25 (launched in 1929) with larger engine to provide more power, as often, over-large bodies had been fitted to the earlier model leading to complaints about its performance.
  • Only the chassis and mechanical parts were made by Rolls-Royce. The body was made and fitted by a coachbuilder selected by the owner. Some of the most famous coachbuilders who produced bodies for Rolls Royce cars are Park Ward, Thrupp & MaberlyMulliner and Hooper.

Notable Role (4/1000): Abhimanyu Singh (Gulaal)

Hailing from Patna (Bihar), Abhimanyu Singh made his debut in films with Aks (2001), directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. His first time major role was that of Rananjay Singh or Ransa in Gulaal (2009), directed by Anurag Kashyap, for which he won the 2010 Stardust Award for breakthrough performance. The fans of Gulaal movie would always give preference to the role of Ransa to that of Dukki Bana (role played by K K Menon). Ransa has been considered to be the perfect character of that movie and Abhimanyu seems to have done justice to that role.
Here are some scenes of Gulaal presenting Abhimanyu:

Introducing Ransa
Murder of Ransa.

Ransa against University election.
He also won praises for his role of Bukka Reddy in Rakta Charitra (2010), directed by Ram Gopal Varma. In his review in The Times of India, Nikhat Kazmi compared his performance to that of Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight (2008) which outshone the lead star. He is also the brother of Bollywood actor Chandrachur Singh.

Don 2: Touching International Benchmarks

People may not like me praising the 1st sequel of the 2006 remake of Don because they expect stunts and story in the movie suits only to the Hollywood hunks like Silvestor, Vin Diesel or Tom Cruise.
But wait guys. Why don't you check out the reviews of Don 2 on iMDB ? Barring the scene, wherein SRK appears at the party in the guise of Hritik, the whole movie is devoid of any other crap. Even his entry through the yacht was the best scene of the movie. 
However, there was one dialogue similar to that used in Mission: Impossible (when Don says to Samir in his first meeting at the stadium "kya ye wahi Sameer Ali hai jisne Tokyo Stock Exchange se dedh (1.5) million dollar chura ke benaami tareeke se Save Me Foundation to donate kiye the". The dialogue used in M:I when Ethan meets Luthar and other partner says "this does'nt sound like the Luthar Stickel I have heard of..."). Some viewers say that this movie is at the standard of the Hollywood action flicks. Songs were not so good as compared to its prequel. But, if you get a good print of this movie, you should go though it and appreciate the hard work of Farhan Akhtar.
