bbqbeach12Barbeques and beaches always top the favourite list of party animals. A cozy, serene beach and some hot, grilled, smokey barbeques, nothing better than these can better define your party nights. If Delhi and Delhites had always been in craze for the enthralling party swings at the beach sides, BBQ Beach, a new entrant in the city has made it possible. With colours of the blue waters and flavours of the exotic food trails, BBQ Beach is all set to make a mark in the hearts of the Delhites. So let’s hear some “beachy” gossip about the coolest, sassiest and trendiest foodie beach affair in town.

To begin with as soon as you move into this cool and trendy place, the urban chores and chaos of metropolitan life fade into the background. A peppy affair sparks off with the beautiful beach artefacts and props spread everywhere. The soothing blue seems to rule the ambience and take you through a session of overriding fun and frolic with some foot-tapping music and delicious barbeques served right on your plate.

Beachy Foodie Affairs

The food trail at BBQ Beach started with some soothing mocktails. The Nutty Balls mocktail punched with enriched ingredients like ripe bananas, peanut butter, milk as well as ice was undoubtedly an appetizing sight to the eye and definitely to our treasured foodie tongues. The fine and exquisite mix of the peanut butter and bananas made sure that we look forward to more such sumptuous mocktails from the chef.

bbqbeach5

My second choice went in favour of a sex and sassy one named “Bikini Oreo Swips”. The love of Oreo and the desire to view this exquisitely named drink made me agree to this and undoubtedly this too like its former one had lived beyond my expectations. Bikinis are not only visual delights, but treats to your taste buds too. 😉

The tryst with food turned out to be equally exhilarating. Starting with the White Grilled fish with Pok ckoy garlic soya and lemon butter prawns proved that the chef has mastered his Barbeque culinary skills to perfection.

The Masala Maggi Pizza and the assorted Sushi platter were irrestible treats for their curated presentation and devised innovation. To witness their expertise in the vegetarian niche, we had some dal tadka, naan and Paneer gravies and yes to our sheer surprise, BBQ Beach has mastered the Desi tastes too.

FriendShip Day Celebrations Receive A New Identity With Barcelos

Barcelos Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
Friendship Day observed on the First Sunday of August undoubtedly gifts you a moment to voice out your feelings for your friends, strike a bond of reunion and celebrate those good old days of friendship with solemn memories. However what happens to those kids who never got a chance to meet their parents and their friendship bonds have been limited to the four walls of the home or orphanage? Their friendship day celebrations do not end up in posh cafes or urban parties. Keeping in mind the conditions of these kids, this year Barcelos Hauz Khas decided to add a touch of exclusivity to their lives on the eve of Friendship Day. 21 kids from the Samparn Home were invited to Barcelos for a gala lunch to ensure that their friendship day turns out to be a special memory for each of them.

The kids had an interactive lunch with all of us and everyone of them indeed experienced a perfect time. Their friendly natures, diverse knowledge about almost everything made us amazed. Burgers,fries,ice-creams and what not, everything was served on their platter to make sure that their friendship Day celebrations could turn out to be the best.

To add to their entertainment there was the famous dancer Anubhav Sharma. He ensured that every child and blogger made a dancing move with the foot-tapping tunes of Kaala Chashma.

The experience turned out to be an incredibly memorable one witnessing so many smiles on the faces of innocent little kids.

If Barcelos had won my heart before for their super delicious Portuguese cuisines, this time with this humanitarian approach of theirs, they stood out to be really exceptional.

Friendhip Day had never been so memorable in my life.

Why You Should Not Waste Your Time on Mohenjodaro?

Mohenjo Daro Review

Though this comes  very late , but I could write a review only after I have seen the movie. I had heard rumors that it did not perform quite well on the screens, but voicing out a negative opinion first requires enough verification. And here comes an honest unbiased review of Mohenjodaro.

When a filmmaker like Ashutosh Gowariker thinks to make a movie on one of the most important settlement of the Indus valley civilization- Mohenjo Daro, one would definitely expect it to be historically correct and yet keep his worth as a storyteller.

However, as the movie states, he has failed to retain both the accounts.

 

mohenjodaro1Mohenjo Daro is basically a fantasy movie and has nothing to do with the exact historical background. It has nothing new to offer and it is the same old brew of jealousy, love served in a packet full of drama with no proper and convincing proportions.

Moreover with the historic diversions and the surplus reinterpreted scenes, Mohenjodaro definitely does not live up to the built expectations of the eagerly awaiting audiences.

Ashutosh has made the first half a bit comical than historical or rather it was a historical comedy in its own way. We understand Ashutosh had been very much inspired by Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, but that does not imply that he will recreate his own historical occurrences.

And what about cinematography and fashion? I must say as far as history states the fashion of Mohenjodaro was definitely not as provoking as it appears to be on the screens of Mohenjodaro by Ashutosh Gowariker.

The acting department also failed to achieve the level of success. Even at some part you may find it quite amateur. The history lovers will find the movie amusing as they won’t be able to relate the film with the actual plot. Serious movie lovers may think it’s the same old, tedious and boring.

Mohenjo Daro had a clash with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom. Even after all this people are watching this movie just due to their love for Hrithik Roshan. But if you really want to make out something from the movie, please keep the history books miles away.

This movie is solely for Hrithik lovers as here he has flaunted his abs, his great dance moves as well. Pooja Hedge is a beautiful lady who limp expressions makes her an appealing heroine. It’s a one time watch though you will like the historic set but don’t expect much from the movie. Well! Even after Hrithik’s earnest performance, it is not enough to take us to the cinema hall to watch Mohenjo Daro.
