Hey Jude Trailer Review
A fun colorful trailer for Hey Jude, starring Nivin Pauly and Trisha, who is making her Malayalam acting debut has now been released online. The trailer starts off showing an innocent Nivin Pauly and his life with people dear to him. Enter Trisha and a friendship blossoms between the two. The chemistry in this footage alone suggests the two have something to offer fans. While the role in itself is challenging for Nivin, Trisha's role is equivalent in terms of the new language where she appears equanimous and in her comfort zone. The plot of Hey Jude although isn't revealed completely, we do get the hint that a conflict erupts either between the two lead stars or their parents in the film. The music included in the trailer also adds to the mood giving an apt buildup to each moment shown in the footage and bodes well overall. Directed by Shyamaprasad, Hey Jude also stars Siddique, Neena Kurup, Vijay Menon, Aju Varghese with songs by Rahul Raj, Ouseppachan, M. Jayachandran, and Gopi Sunder under the Ambalakara Films banner. Watch the trailer here:

Weinstein seeks dismissal of rape charges
Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has sought dismissal of sexual assault charges against him.According to court documents obtained by CNN, attorneys for the disgraced film mogul filed a motion for dismissal in the federal court here on Friday.Among other things to have been cited is the discovery of evidence that the grand jury was not shown -- specifically "dozens of emails" sent from one of Weinstein's anonymous accusers, characterised as "extensive warm, complimentary and solicitous messages to Weinstein immediately following the now claimed event and over the next four year period." "These communications irrefutably reflect the true nature of this consensual intimate friendship, which never at any time included a forcible rape," Weinstein's attorney Ben Brafman told CNN in a statement.The emails and text messages -- allegedly sent and received through Weinstein's official company account and phone -- were obtained by his legal team earlier this year after a bankruptcy judge in Delaware granted access to them for his criminal defense.In an email sent from one of Weinstein's accusers on January 5, 2014, ten months after the alleged rape in March 2013, she wrote: "You're the one who makes it look good with your smile and beautiful eyes!! But thank you that makes me so happy to hear." Two other emails were cited.When contacted by CNN, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office declined to comment on Friday's motion for dismissal.Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to six felony sex crimes -- two counts of predatory sexual assault, two counts of rape, one first-degree criminal sex act charge and one criminal sex act.The charges stem from allegations from three women, according to court documents.
