Game of Thrones: In season 6, Jon Snow’s death is inconsequential

A couple of weeks ago, Game of Thrones (GoT) released the trailer for its sixth season on YouTube and, for those 1:41 minutes, the entire world ceased to exist for diehard GoT fans. The excitement and exhilaration that fans had been harbouring since the beginning of this year (and when the season six teaser was released) increased tenfold and I, for one, began marking the calendar for April 24th like the GoT fanatic I am. After the trailer was released, many started speculating as to whether Jon Snow was really dead or if he will be reincarnated by Melisandre, the Red Woman ...

Is Jon Snow going to die?

Before I begin, let me clarify that I have not read any of the Game of Thrones books and therefore, the theories provided here might seem a bit farfetched to those who have read the books. However, having said that, the incredulous roller-coaster journey that George RR Martin and the makers of this show have taken us through has made me believe that anything is truly possible. So in light of all that, here is a list of 10 fan theories ranging from the most plausible to the downright insane, that discuss this brilliant show in all its shades: 1) R ...

Karan Johar takes on GoT with ‘Kabhi Games, Kabhi Thrones’

Social media is full of news of Game of Thrones being adapted as an Indian television show. Am I the only one who thinks that the plot lends itself perfectly for a Bollywood movie instead of a TV show? I would pay good money to see a Karan Johar production titled ‘Kabhi Games, Kabhi Thrones’. The story would begin with Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon riding together on a motorbike merrily singing a song together. The evil sautayli ma (step-mother) would ask Jon Snow to be banished from the kingdom, and the Stark jayedaad (inheritance). Snow’s storyline would become even more contentious in a Bollywood setting with the word ‘bastard’ repeated multiple times with the echo ...

GoT Season 5 Episode 1 brings death to King’s Landing

By now you would (read: should) have seen the first episode of Game of Thrones (GoT) season five. Despite leaving us for months at a time, GoT has a way of sucking you back into the world of Westeros every single season. Even when our favourite characters are (wrongfully) killed, they are replaced with new characters inhabiting different worlds, and just like life, the story goes on; Vlar Morghulis. This season began with the first flashback scene of the season. HBO show producers David Beinoff and DB Weiss were sternly against any flashbacks scenes. However, by putting the scene at the ...

Game of Thrones Season 6 comes to Pakistan

There are rumours flying around of production beginning on an Indian version of Game of Thrones (GoT). We let India sneak ahead in the nuclear arms race but we seem to be far ahead of them in the television dramas race. However, this could be a game-changer – to ensure we maintain our advantage we must make our own version of GoT before India! To make the job easier for all prospective producers, I have taken the liberty of casting the Pakistani Game of Thrones. 1. Mahira Khan as Daenerys Targaryen Our latest export to Bollywood is really the only option to play ...

Tyrion Lannister is the best thing to happen to Game of Thrones

There is an obsession with TV series these days, particularly amongst the youth. New seasons are being awaited with much anticipation, especially popular ones like Suits, House of Cards, Scandal and, of course, Game of Thrones. You would find trailers of upcoming seasons on your newsfeed and much discussion on the storyline, quotes and characters shown so far, along with predictions of what might happen next. Quizzes such as “which character of a particular series are you”, and the likes, are common sight.

The euphoria grips everyone. As for me, my most favourite TV series thus far is Game of ...

Game of Thrones versus House of Cards, who will bag the Golden Globe?

As per the Greek mythos, Helen of Troy was the face that launched a thousand ships. By the same token, collectively, two of the most popular drama series Game of Thrones and House of Cards have created a plethora of die-hard fans, countless memes and memorable one-liners from the two drama series.  If one was to find a singular commonality between the two drama series, it will be the pursuit of seeking absolute power. While, House of Cards frequently chronicles and portrays the journey of its main character, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), in the corridors of power in Washington DC ,  Game of Thrones, on the other hand, ...
