Cafe Hi5

Café Hi5 reopened this year and buzzed the market with a new menu and expanded place. The interiors are quite cool with funky graffiti on walls and ceiling. The cafe has separate space dedicated for private parties, match screenings, DJ and usual diners. Music was excellent. Credit to the DJ who did not stick to the usual Punjabi songs but played kicky foot tapping numbers.

We started with paneer tikka, chicken lollipop and fish tikka. Paneer was fresh and not greased with oil. The good thing about the whole experience was that management was open to feedback and ready to improvise. The manager sat with us and tasted paneer tikka when I told him about high salt content. Chicken lollipop and fish tikka were well marinated and soft, juicy from inside. The nice smoky flavor was appealing. Papad & Mint chutney accompanied the dishes. The spread had a great presentation.

The manager showed us the whole place. The showstopper was the bar and they claim that to be the only one in India …

Movie Review- Wazir

Director- Bejoy Nambiar            Producer-  Vidhu Vinod Chopra
Genre- Thriller                            ReleaseDate- 8 Jan, 2016          Duration- 1 hour 44 minutes

Wazir is one of the most talked about thriller films in Bollywood and the screen presence of Big B Amitabh Bachhan with super talented Farhan Akhtar gives you a reason to watch it. The duo feature in unique roles like never before. O yeah that’s intriguing enough.

The plot- The protagonist Pandit Omkar Nath Dhar (Amitabh Bachhan) is a wheelchair bound grand chess master who lost his daughter in an accident. Deep down in his heart he knows the killer of his daughter but is unable to avenge him because of two reasons- Lack of concrete proof and his disability…

Was Rocky Handsome?

Movie Review- Rocky Handsome Genre- Action thriller  Director- Nishikant Kamat Producer- John Abraham, Sunir Khetrapal
In the quest of good action packed movies, I landed up watching the no-so-handsome Rocky Handsome. Not to forget the credentials of the Bollywood hunk and once a heart throb, John Abraham, who pulled the crowd but disappointed many like me. After garnering lot of attention in Madras Cafe and producing a successful movie like Vicky Donor, John Abraham raised the expectation level of audience a notch higher, however Rocky Handsome falls much below the bar.
The plot-.  Heavily borrowed from South Korean action thriller “The Man from Nowhere”, the plot is around an ex special force agent Kabir Ahlawat (John) trained for covet operations living alone in the dingy lanes of Goa. After losing his pregnant wife (Shruti Hasan) in a terrorist attack, his service records are deleted and he runs a pawn shop from his house.
His drug addicted neighbour Anna (Nathalia Kaur) is a single …
