I think all five-star establishments work on a basic level of understanding between the service providers and the consumers, that the service provider will provide unmatched service/ experience, and the consumer will shell out some incredible amount of cash. Pershawri, unfortunately disappointing.  Peshawri was highly disappointing, almost in every aspect of the so-called ‘fine dining’ experience. We are a member of the ITC Club Culinaire, so we often visit Sonar for family dinners. More often than not, we end up eating at Dum Pukht, which would have deserved a solid 4/5 if it was not claustrophobic. This time, we decided to try…

After two weeks of being told how great this movie is, I finally watched it last night and I have a lot to say about it. But before I get into that, I just want to say that Black Panther is by no means a bad movie. I’m not saying that the people who love this movie are wrong, I’m just not one of them because I really didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to.

So Netflix has been getting a lot of shit for the movies they have produced lately. Bright was underwhelming and The Cloverfield Paradox was a complete mess. Did Love Per Square Foot break the curse that every Netflix production seems to be plagued with? Not really. No. This movie is written and directed by Anand Tiwari and stars Vicky Kaushal and Angira Dhar. It’s about two people who are looking for a house of their own in Mumbai for their own separate reasons. They decide to fake being in a marriage in order to enter a lottery, the prize of…

Padmaavat is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s third historical adaptation. It stars Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh. Pros This movie is really about the rivalry between Sultan Alauddin Khilji and Maharawal Ratan Singh. These roles are respectively played by Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor and their performances are what makes this movie worth watching. It was fun to watch these two polar opposites go head to head. One is a ruthless brute and the other is a king who never lets go of his principles. You could tell by his performance that Ranveer Singh enjoyed…

Kaalakaandi is written by the people who made Delhi Belly. If you have seen that movie and didn’t like it then you won’t like this one. This movie is about a bunch of people stuck in different situations and it all takes place in one night. It’s basically a series of random events that are sort of connected but also not really. Saif Ali Khan’s character has just been diagnosed with stomach cancer so he decides to make an impromptu bucket list and starts checking things off it. Vijay Raaz and Deepak Dobriyal play couriers for a criminal and are…

Distance has a heartbeat and it’s in sync with her breathing and it’s all I can hear when she’s not with me. I have never known missing like this, physically hurting from not being able to touch her. I can think about kissing her, or touching her and its fine for a while but if I think of the small things, like our legs touching under the table at dinner, or my hand on her knee or her head on my shoulder, I feel something swelling inside my chest bubbling into my throat and my entire body aches likes I’m…

In a country of 1.3 billion people, it is ideally suggested that the government should take measures to curb population to reduce the stress on the natural as well as other synthetic resources in the country. Sex education is a distant dream. In a nation termed ‘conservative’ if not anything else, the only exposure to ‘sex education’, in the broadest interpretation of the term possible, is probably through value education and biology books. But it must be kept in mind that I am quite literally, expanding the scope of the words to undesirable limits. I think every student can relate to…

One of them is what you’re lowered into, Too hastily for everyone around you Stuck and suffocated, The other is dirt. One of them is what is cold sometimes, Warm others, What everyone seems to fall in without permission, And the other is love. One of them is what makes your knees dirty, What gets under your fingernails, What slams against your palms when you’re falling. And the other is dirt. One of them is what makes you wipe your palms off Before touching someone, What makes you weary about whether they’ll be disgusted, And the other is love. One…
