Something spicy is cooking in Bollywood. OMG, can it get any better? A foodie movie with my secretbollywoodlove Kunal Kapoor!!! Two great things coming together here. Shabash! This is better than the Super Bowl! …not that I have any specific affinity towards the Super Bowl, except that the Giants play and for the sake of NY, I hope they will win! But …
Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana hitting the cinemas in MAYYY!! YAYYYY!!!!
I wrote already a post about Kunal being involved with this movie. What I DIDN”T get into enough that this is a FOODIE MOVIE and consequently, as my second favorite genre, it deserves more of a write-up. Reason why:
A) I like to cook
B) there aren’t enough good foodie movies out there!
C) there aren’t any Indian foodie movies that I know of, except the marvelously entertaining independent NRI Aasif Mandvi movie: Today’s Special, which any foodie should watch!!
& Cooking with Stella, written by the one and only Deepa Mehta and her brother, who also directed the movie.
& Cheeni Kum, with Big B. but him being a vegetarian, I guess, they didn’t get into the details of food prep in this London five star restaurant. still a delightful movie
D) there is never enough talk about Kunal Kapoor and I am on a mission here! :-)
Okay: here is my list of movies any foodie should have in their library:
Today’s Special. If you haven’t seen it, the DVD is available now. a grand performance by Naseeruddin Shah. but the entire cast rocks!
Cooking with Stella
Eat Drink Man Woman
Tampopo (old one)
I should mention Julia and Julia, but I kind of fell asleep during the movie. I heard it was good. I thought it was long.
