Movie review of the second film in the trilogy: Fifty Shades Darker, currently streaming on Netflix India
Ankit Gupta, the young and dynamic director of the Burma Burma Restaurant and Tea Room says his being a herbivore has nothing to do with him opening a vegetarian restaurant. That very obvious thought does cross the mind though, doesn’t it?
Now, before you get any ideas, let me tell you that the path to this award-winning hotel in the Landour Cantonment area in Mussoorie is certainly not rocky at all. Instead, rocky would refer to (pun intended) the hair-raising, nerve chilling experience we had, while on our way to this place. Not for the faint-hearted, [...]
That, Adil Hussain, the actor can stir up a whole lot of excitement at an event is not a very surprising thing anymore. But a few years ago, we would have gone, 'who?'

On Tuesday, the Indian Air Force targeted one of the biggest terror camps in neighbouring Pakistan's Balakot area. Though inadmissible, it was revenge for the terror attack in India's Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama a few days back where we lost a large number of armymen.
Salute to IAF and the Indian army for this operation. MY THOUGHTS IN A POEM.
Slowly falling leaves, a beautiful yellow in the fall Brought me to you The fading best of the summer that was disappearing Hid me in your arms And then it was dark, deep and a heavy, dull winter When I craved for you and needed you But you were gone You needed to get back [...]

Not just about sex, but its also about the sex. Witty, entertaining, smart lines dominate this series starring David Duchovny. Watch on Netflix India.
If it's South Indian food, one of the top contenders has to be Sagar Ratna. Both the brand and the owner Jayaram Banan are as distinctive as can be.
Read my take on this.
Vicky Kaushal is brilliant as usual. A film to watch especially in the wake of more recent attacks. It proves that terrorism understands only the language of bloodshed and killings.
Andhadhun is a macabre yet brilliant fest. Bazaar has promise but slides into mediocrity.
BBC TV series, Luther, Season 5 on Amazon Prime is excellent. Watch it!

Where is home? A question that never ceases to surprise or pique my curiosity, whenever I think about it. For the vast majority of people who have been brought up and gone to school and married and had children and worked in the same places forever, this question would seem ridiculous. But for people like [...]
Since the Fatty Bao restaurant opened in Delhi a little more than three years ago, I have wanted to go there for a meal. But as luck would have it, it just quite didn't happen. In fact, I had been to the Sangam courtyard mall in RK Puram, quite a few times and visited a [...]
