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.

Barbeque Nation Faridabad Proves Why BBQ Nation is the Most Reliable Ooutlet to Have The Best Barbecues

Residents of Faridabad had been long deprived of some great barbeque cuisines. And Barbeque Nation came as a boon to us. Though I had been to this food joint a couple of times in Faridabad, this time when we made our food tour with a blogging bent of mind, Barbeque Nation surprised us with a series of unknown facts.

Carrying its origin from the parent brand of Barbeque Nation, no wonder they were the most wanted members for all Barbeque lovers in Faridabad. In fact, when I came to know about this food joint, I was also super excited. Who likes to travel down to Connaught Place or Saket just to have a luncheon or a dinner? And BBQ Nation, Faridabad has rightfully lived up to all our anticipations.

Ambience

No wonder Barbeque Nation can bag the appreciation for its wonderful décor and its loyalty to the BBQ Nation family reputation. With lovely chandeliers and a mix and match of two seaters, four-seaters as well as eight-seater tables, this food joint knows all the ways to make you feel relaxed.

This section makes me give them the extra brownie points. In fact their extremely cordial behaviour, end-to-end assistance, multiple queries on our tastes and a special careful eye for our comfort made us feel pampered. Without any exaggeration, each and every token of their behaviour conveyed how dedicated they were to impress their customers and improve their services.

In fact as far as we could recall we were inquired about the taste almost thrice that communicated how careful they are in maintaining a healthy client relationship.

Cleanliness

Though this never turns out to be a segment of a restaurant review however we decided to pen it down for the impeccable cleanliness we came across. While as a food blogger we have come across many restaurants or food joints that refuse to take you immediately to their kitchen, Barbeque Nation surprised us on the contrary. Without any second thought, they escorted us to their kitchen and we were again surprised by their extra careful steps to assure hygiene.

We learnt from BBQ Nation Faridabad that every member of the Barbeque Nation family engages itself in strict maintenance of separate Barbeque sections for the vegetarian and the non-vegetarian.

Even the Barbeque steaks are given distinct identities so that there is no room for confusion. I believe this is a great piece of good news for our vegetarian Barbeque Nation foodies.

With three absolutely distinct segments for Barbeques, main courses as well as desserts, they leave no stones unturned to offer you the best food on your platter.

Even the dishes undergo three rigorous stages of cleaning before they hit your luncheon or dinner tables.

Great! Isn’t it?

Food

Well, now coming to the food scenario, BBQ Nation Faridabad Sector 35, has a limited number of options compared to other BBQ counterparts. It’s understandable, as the outlet witnessed its birth only in the month of September, 2015. Not even a year old right?

However their limited varieties never let down your appetites as the kebabs and Tandooris are loaded with supreme tastes. For the Veg Starter section, you can enjoy the Honey Chilli Grilled Veg, Sabnam Ke Moti (an authentic delicacy of corn), Chinnikom Pineapple, Marwadi Paneer Tikka, Marrakesh Role and Cajun Spiced Potato.

Cajun Potato

Recommended: – As my personal favourites, I would recommend Shabnam ke Moti and Cajun Spiced Potato.

For the non-veg starter, you can experience the Tambura Prawn, Fish Adraki Tikki, Zulu Coriander Chicken, Angara Tangdi, Mutton Gilafi Stick etc.

The main course dinners are usually of the same range alike the other Barbeque Nation members so I would not mention more about them.

Coming to desserts Barbeque Nation held a plethora of items and indeed every person is bound to fall in love with the dessert scenario. Gulkand Phirni, Hot Gulab Jamun, Bread and Nuts Kheer, Almond Brownie, Zebra Pastry, Orange Cheese Cake, Fresh Cut Fruits and the list goes endless.

Recommended: To experience an off-beat taste, you can readily opt for Gulkand Phirni and Hot Gulab Jamun.

To sum it up, Barbeque Nation Faridabad, just like its fellow outlets have survived all the expectations of a gastronomic journey. So Faridabadwalon fasten your seat belts and get ready for the Bon apetite.

Howrah Express: Pamper Yourself with A Great Bengali Cuisine

Innovation and extraordinary ideas have always contributed to the birth of something exclusive and out-of-the-box. One such instance that has recently hit the streets of Faridabad is the Bengali cuisine food joint in Sector 31. The City of Joy has always been the hub of extraordinary delicacies and finger-licking tastes and unfortunately Faridabad remained long deprived of this magic. Amit Pradhan, an inhabitant of Faridabad was empathetic enough to realize these areas and soon he decided to work out something and here we have Howrah Express.

Exclusivity

Whether you are a Bong or not, the relishing factor of a Bengali cuisine lies uncontroversial. Faridabad despite being blessed with a huge chain of restaurants flooding with Mughlai and Chinese flavours never had a Bengali joint to look forward to. And Howrah Express is indeed an innovation in the genre. Boasting in its menu, a plethora of items to taste for, it can take you back right to the streets of Kolkata without a miss. Amit Pradhan, the owner of this venture, when asked about why did he choose to embark on such a proposal, he had a very frank answer to offer.  He was in search for his own flavours in the city and that sparked off the decision.

Menu

Howrah Express is brimming with Bong tastes from every niche. Whether it’s the famous Maacher Jhol( Fish Curry), or the Chicken Chaap( a spicy Chicken marinated gravy) or those crispy, munching Cutlet and Kabirajis, it is the one-stop destination to all such delicacies. In fact it’s equipped with all the ingredients that are required to bring in the sparks into your monotonous menu.

Delivery Networks

Though Howrah Express started its journey with its delivery networks confined to Faridabad only, gradually it has extended itself to other parts of the National Capital too. It accepts pre-delivery orders from Gurgaon as well as Delhi too. So if you have a bulk order to please your guests with a Bengali tinge of style, all you need to do is to give them a call a day before and authentic Bengali food is right on your way.

Arsalan Special Biryani

The best part of their menu is it will directly transport you to the City of Joy with their names. Amit Pradhan chooses to name each dish after a popular food joint in Kolkata that replenishes the genuine flavours. So whether it is the “Arsalan Biryani” or the  , every item is catered to without a miss.

So when you desire to pamper those hidden Bengali taste buds in you, Howrah Express is just a call away.
