    Too stolid to be funny

    It's a wonder that a film that was made over a decade ago, gets released, though, The Fakir Of Venice could well have gone straight to a streaming platform. In the interim, Farhan Akhtar has zoomed up the Bollywood pyramid, Annu Kapoor has, sort of, missed the movie bus, and director Anand Surapur remained dormant. The film could have been a satire on the Western world's fascination with Indian spiritualism, that...

    Ek Ladki.: Sweet, sensitive & where no mainstream film has ventured before

    A mainstream film, with popular stars venturing into the LGBTQ space is cause for a hurrah, even if it is potholed with problems. Even if first time director Shelley Chopra Dhar wants to be politically correct and couch the message of acceptance of alternative sexuality in froth, there are a few areas on contention. Sweety (Sonam Kapoor) is the Moga-based daughter of a...

    Pepperoni rules at this Bandra bistro

    The Peppermill is a must-visit in Bandra. It offers a large bar, good food including bar snacks, soups, pizza, sandwiches and music. Went because I was nearby and accompanied by a very hungry friend. We were pleasantly surprised. We ordered from a fairly expansive (but photocopied) menu: Pepperoni Thin Crust Pizza (yum yum!) served on a lovely wooden platter and cut into long slices not the usual quarter and...

    Bright, Cheery Café

    Visited the huge, spanking new Foodhall at Linking Road, Santacruz. And obviously, after being wowed by the high quality, international foods stocked at the Foodhall, we had to eat at the café. The cafe looks completely international and has a fairly extensive menu for a quick meal or a snack. Located in the basement, it has its own entrance so you don't have to enter through the store though you have to exit through...

    Into the waters in a Nidhi Munim

    There was a time a few decades ago when shopping for swimwear was an expensive exercise - one had to go abroad for a good brand and fit. All that has now changed and how? One of the popular swimwear brands belongs to a petit, dynamic, designer, Nidhi Munim who has created quite a stir by turning women into Aqua Queens with her stunning swimsuits. Her debut collection in 2012 at India Resort Fashion Week created...

    CGI Gobbledygook

    It has been seen in recent months that a spectacle is not enough to satisfy the audience. While a star like Rajinikanth with his huge fan following might be able to pull off 2.0 at the box-office, with any other star, its fate would have been doubtful. Probably that is why in the credits, 'Superstar' is prefixed to his name, while Akshay Kumar's name goes without any embellishment. 2.0 is the sequel to S...

    Blast from the Jazz Past

    There's something special, enchanting and nostalgic about old-school jazz. Tunes from the Great American Songbook, the masterly compositions of Billy Strayhorn, George Gershwin and Cole Porter, a tight line-up comprising a grand piano, cornet, double bass and basic drum kit. Mainly gems from the 1930s and 1940s. One saw all this earlier this week (Tuesday, November 27) at the Bal Gandharva Rang Mandir, Bandra, when...
