The Flash Battles Hazard in ‘Luck Be a Lady’ Trailer

The trailer for next week’s The Flash shows that Barry and the team’s luck is about to run out. While the season 4 premiere of The Flash was all about establishing the new status quo in Central City and bringing Barry back from the Speed Force, last night’s episode (‘Mixed Signals’) was able to cut loose. Barry and Iris and Cisco and Gypsy all worked through some issues, and the show’s writers were able bring back the fun and humor that’s been missing since season 1. However, as the episode’s tag teased, Team Flash has a big threat on the horizon.

We know The Thinker is the big bad this season on The Flash, but it’s clear that he’ll be pulling the strings of a number of other metas. The rogue is playing a long game, and Kilg%re was just the first part of his scheme. Over the coming weeks, a group of metas who weren’t part of the Particle Accelerator explosion will emerge and threaten Barry and his team. Next week, the villain they face will be bringing with her a whole lot of bad luck… literally.

The CW has released the trailer for next week’s episode of The Flash, titled ‘Luck be a Lady’, online (see the video above). In it, we are introduced to the meta thief Hazard and her luck-altering powers. Played by Sugar Lyn Beard, Hazard can grant herself good luck with the result the everyone around her receives the opposite. All told, it will be a tricky power set for Team Flash to tackle.

Like a number of villains on The Flash, Hazard is a relatively minor villain. With psionic powers that let her control probabilities, she naturally adopted a gambling-themed costume and name as she set about as a super-powered thief. She would also go on to join a version of the Injustice Society, the supervillain team The Flash looks to be setting up this season.

The introduction of Hazard and her powers also allows for The Flash to continue injecting humor into its season 4 episodes. Season 1 of the series had a certain gee-whiz sci-fi quality to it that blended human stories with lots of action and antics. After changing its tone over the past two seasons to better mirror ArrowThe Flash proved this week that it’s gotten back to its roots. By having a meta whose powers can create situations both dangerous and whimsical, The Flash will be able to more organically return to form from hereon out.

The Flash continues with ‘Luck be a Lady’ next Tuesday at 8pm on The CW.

Malayalam actress assault case: Trial against Dileep and other accused to begin a year after abduction

Exactly a year later, the much-anticipated verdict in the Kerala actress kidnap case, in which actor Dileep has been named as the eighth accused, is to emerge with the trial set to begin very soon.

And the question that is uppermost in people’s minds is — will Dileep walk free or be behind bars.

It was this day last year that the abduction incident took place while the actress was on her way to Kochi from her house in Thrissur.

Her driver allegedly joined hands with a group of ‘criminals’ led by Pulsar Suni, who is the prime accused, and drove her through the busy streets of the commercial capital of the state and after two hours she was dropped near the home of director-actor Lal.

After she told him about what had happened to her, Lal called the police. The driver was first taken into custody and in a few days the rest of the gang, including Suni, was arrested.

But the twist in the tale, in true cinematic style, came when superstar Dileep was arrested on 10 July, 2017, after two rounds of questioning. After spending 85 days in jail, he got conditional bail.

Since then the police probe team has been busy in tying the loose ends in the now high profile case.

The trial court in December accepted the charge sheet that names a total of 12 persons, including Dileep as accused, while his former wife Manju Warrier, is a key witness.

The 650-page charge sheet included secret depositions. Among the list of witnesses, are around 50 from the film industry.

Now all eyes are on the beginning of the trial as the police is burning the midnight oil to see if they can successfully recover the visuals of the kidnapping and alleged molestation, which is reported to have been filmed by the gang.

The filmmaker, whose controversial movie with American adult entertainment star Mia Malkova was released on internet last month, appeared before the officials of Central Crime Station (CCS) in response to the notice served on him.

The police officials questioned him about the allegations made against him by women activists.

On 25 January, a day before the release of the movie, Varma was booked by the CCS. A case under section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 was booked against him for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form.

The filmmaker was also booked under sections 506 and 509 of Indian Penal Code for allegedly making personal comments against women activists during the debate on the movie on some television channels. When activists accused him of promoting obscenity, Varma allegedly offered to make similar movies with them. He has been charged with insulting the modesty of a woman.

The CCS this week issued fresh notice on Varma as he could not appear before the officials earlier.

Women’s organizations in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh had staged protest last month demanding ban on the release of the movie on web and Varma’s immediate arrest.

The activists alleged that Varma released the movie on web to avoid the certification by authorities. They said the filmmaker is portraying woman as a sex object and promoting pornography.
