CBI officer Nachiket Verma (Jimmy Shergill) heads the case and gets restrain order from all the other security agencies to make sure that the kidnappers don’t panic and kill Rohan. Initially the case is thought of mistaken identity wherein the kidnapper might have tried to kidnap the friend of Rohan, Cheeku who was also drugged while kidnapping. Madaari (2016) 133 min|Adventure, Crime, Drama|22 Jul 2016 7.7Rating: 7.7 / 10 from 6,856 usersMetascore: N/A When Nirmal loses his family in a disaster caused by government corruption, he embarks on a journey seeking accountability and revenge. Director: Nishikant KamatCreator: Shailja Kejriwal (story), Ritesh Shah (screenplay)Actors: Irrfan Khan, Jimmy Shergill, Vishesh Bansal, Tushar Dalvi For a long time there is silence from the kidnapper and everyone is left guessing as who it might be and at the same time the investigation is kept extremely secret, so as to keep the kidnaper(s) from killing Rohan. Behind the scenes the security agencies try to find the location of the kidnapper without raising any kind of suspicion. Rohan is actually kidnapped by Nirmal (Irrfan Khan) after drugging him. Rohan shows his anger towards Nirmal for kidnapping him. Nirmal shows Rohan a pre-recorded video of his friend Cheeku who is in a drugged state struggling with fear. Nirmal tells Rohan that Cheeku will be killed if he refuses to co-operate with him. Nirmal keeps traveling via public transport to evade his location. One day, the kidnapper call the father of Cheeku to convey a message to the Home Minister that the kidnapper has kidnapped the son of the Home Minister on purpose. His demand is that he wants his son, who was lost in an act of negligence by the government, be found. It is then revealed that Nirmal had a happy family with his son, Apu (short for Apurva), after his wife left them. Apu died when a bridge collapsed on him on his way to school. Moved and depressed by his loss, Nirmal decided to seek revenge from the politicians and others responsible for the death of his son. The news becomes a hot item in the media. Towards the end, Nirmal travels back to his house in Mumbai with Rohan, and calls a TV news channel from there and demands all those who were involved in the bridge collapse, including the Home Minister, come to his house, threatening to kill Rohan and himself if they don’t. He makes the bridge contractor, the Home Minister and the ruling party’s money man (Pratap Nimbalkar), confess their corrupt activities on a live broadcast on TV. Rohan indicates he understands why Nirmal did what he did and Rohan and Nirmal hug before Rohan leaves with his father. Nirmal surrenders to the police and is later seen immersing the articles his son was wearing when he died in a river, while under the custody of the police.

City of burning lakes: experts fear Bangalore will be uninhabitable by 2025
The illegal dumping of waste mixed with mass untreated sewage in India’s Silicon Valley is creating a water crisis which threatens residents’ health – and is causing the city’s famous lakes to catch fireOn the evening of Thursday 16 February, residents in the south-east part of Bangalore noticed huge plumes of smoke rising into the sky. The smoke was coming from the middle of Bellandur Lake – the biggest lake in the city at a little over 890 acres. They realised the seemingly impossible had happened: the lake had caught fire. Even fire fighters wondered how a blaze in water could be put out. The fire in the lake burned for 12 hours and left behind a sinister black patch in the centre, according to some eye-witness accounts.

Next-gen Suzuki Jimny to be made-in-India – Report
Reported to be based on the Baleno’s lightweight platform. Car and Bike reports that Suzuki will make India the production hub for the next generation Suzuki Jimny. It could be launched in markets like Brazil, Indonesia and Europe before the end of the decade. The Jimny could be launched in markets like Brazil, Indonesia and Europe before the end of the decade. Suzuki’s tough-as-teeth SUV will be based on the Maruti Baleno‘s lightweight platform, offering significant weight savings that could be beneficial when traversing mucky terrain. It will continue to offer the characteristic 4×4 drivetrain, but could be powered by the 112 PS 1.0L Boosterjet engine from the export-spec Maruti Baleno. Given that a 3-door mini SUV is a niche in the Indian market, Maruti is likely to introduce the Jimny as an extended, 4-door version in India, should the manufacturer consider a launch. As the Jimny name would be new to regular car buyers, Maruti could consider launching it as a long-time successor to the iconic Gypsy to garner attention. Like the Maruti Vitara Brezza, it can be sold as a sub-4m SUV, competing against the likes of the Mahindra TUV300. Given that a 3-door mini SUV is a niche in the Indian market, Maruti is likely to introduce the Jimny as an extended, 4-door version in India.
