Ever wondered the dictionary meaning of a Showstopper?

Not surprising, if you haven’t. Because Manipal’s very own fusion dance crew – The Showstoppers does absolute justice to its name; of receiving prolonged applause and appreciation.

Baz Luhrmann – The Great Gatsby [Finely Tuned #7]

Finely Tuned is The MIT Post’s weekly album review column. It is an attempt to add a new dimension to the way Manipal looks at music. Every week, we will bring you a fresh album; carefully picked from a catalogue composed of both critically acclaimed mainstream releases and noteworthy independent ones.
This week, we review the soundtrack from the motion picture “The Great Gatsby”.
