Daily tit-bits: May 2017

With a lull on the work front, been watching movies, plenty of them, online and in theaters. What I have been watching
 Nenu Local (2017): Nani: another badly selected movie. Ran in theaters but I'd rate it a mere 2.5/5, Nani is fast losing it.

Phillouri (2017)--Anushka Sharma: Ambitious but very childish plot with the ghost floating around funnily. 2/5 from me.

Antham (2016): Never even heard of this movie but this thriller was well-made and keeps you at the edge of your seat though the end seemed a bit contrived. Relatively unknown actors, Charan Deep, Rashmi Gautam give a decent performance. A 3.5/5 from me.

Premam (2016): All talk and no action. Though Nag has evolved a lot as an actor, the story held no water. Falling in love at three different stages in life has different ways of manifestation. The story had a great potential but a no show in terms of direction. A 2/5 from me.

Winner (2017): Intriguing story. Sai Dharam Tej shines again with his energy. A 3/5 from me for Sai and Jagpathi babu's powerful performances. The story is not strong enough to support such performances. But yes, have decided to go watch his movies in theaters instead of waiting for them to be released on TV.

Sahasam Swasaga Sagipo (2016): Naga Chiatanya: Action-Romance. Ok-ok A 2.5/5 from me.

Watched Shourya (Manchu Manoj) (2016). Liked it quite a bit...Manoj style of doing 'different' films. A romantic thriller. Nice one!

Sarabhai vs Sarabhai Take 2: The much awaited series is back but this time online. Despite the obvious comparison to the previous season, it is such a relief to find that the quality hasn't dipped at all. All the actors, despite a 11 year gap don't seem to have aged a bit and continue to be as goofily lovable as before.

Had to go to a place close to Shopper's Stop and obviously dropped in at Shopper's Stop! The excuse was the left over credit note of 400/- But when I went there, I obviously went looking around for a good hour. I was amazed at the collections there. I had bought my last dress at Shopper's Stop at GVK but compared to that, this place seems to have double the range. So, next time, I buy a dress, it is going to be here.
Bought blue color matching leggings for the dress bought for last birthday in Bangalore!
After that, I started walking and saw that Heart Cup Coffee was close by. I had  planned to be there for a long time and now that it is so close to my home, I dropped in. The loud throbbing music set the mood.
The DJ at Heart Cup Coffee

I discovered that Wednesdays were Ladies Nights and the drinks were on the house. Wasted on someone like me! I ordered a mocktail and was enjoying it when the host of the evening, Sharon, asked me if I'd like to make my own drink. I was smiling at this opportunity and very tentatively, with the help of the bartender made my own virgin mojito. Loved the experience, bless this so- enthusiastic and warm Sharon!
Feel good and nice about this experience of immense freedom!
