Star Movies Secret Screening!

September 18, 2014 Posted by Rishnita Bhandari , , , , , , , 2 comments

Star Movies Secret Screening! Sounds spooky, isn't it?

It was up and gaining popularity when the official twitter handle of STAR MOVIES mentioned about it!
When it was running on their website, it seemed inexplicable, just exactly how they wanted it to seem.

On their website, there was a dark entrance door, and through the glass of the door, all we could see was an elevator with glowing lights.

A part of it said :



The entry through the door was only possible via a secret code. Everyone wanted to get in! And thus, requested for the secret code through their twitter profiles.

It was followed by a couple of days of waiting.

While the hashtag #StarMoviesSecretScreening was trending and fetching huge number of tweets!



People were curious to know what it was.

It was when the applicants started receiving codes to open the secret door, that the things started coming out of their mystery box.

On entering the code, we were guided to the passes to the screening in a swift and lavish way! By swift, I mean the interface was smooth and gave a special yet dark feeling!

Now, I and one friend of mine had invites to this Secret Screening and eagerly waited for Friday, the 5th of September.




Little hints from them :


And it was Friday, the 5th! 

Star Movie's interaction tab was filled with excitement!


No one wanted to miss even a single thing that was about to happen
Thus, almost everyone got there on time.

We were given PVR Gift cards, and masks at the entrance!



After a lot of curiosity building, the officials decided to let us in and start the screening,

But jumping straight to the screening was just not Star Movie's way of announcing a new movie! :)

A weird ghostly voice welcomed us and regarded us as the "Secret Keepers". It made us howl ;)

The movie was then announced! 

It was *Drumrolls* 

THE MAZE RUNNER

Directed by : Wes Ball
Star cast : Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie Sangster, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson

The story evolves around a guy named Thomas, portrayed by Dylan O'Brien who finds himself memory-less in a rusty elevator. He is stuck in the middle of an intricate maze, along with a group of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the constantly changing maze and the 'Grievers'.

A game of numbers, patterns and speed.


A simple movie with no love triangles or ancient cop robber chases.
(Because the girl enters in the later half of the movie and the cops are probably outside the MAZE)
A story of a different genre, which entertains one for a good time. 

Towards the end, It becomes fascinating to see how this group of boys make their way out of the maze and prove that they have a genius mind.

As the movie came to and end and we made our way out, without any grievers or maze; we were treated with a large bag of goodies by Star Movies! 

People with 'Secret Screening' T-Shirts and a bag full of goodies just felt as if it was Christmas and Santa Claus had successfully loosen weight and changed his costume :P

We picked up goodies from the bag and then I and my friend were busy exchanging what we got. 




We took home a Star Movies Hat, a Wolverine T-Shirt; along with the masks that we had before!


Top- Pantaloons | Jeans- Xpose
Bag- Three Mad Chicks
Hat- Star Movies
 

Star Movies Secret Screening was undoubtedly a fun - filled event.

I wont give it a second thought before signing up for another Secret Screening! :)

And guess what? 'THE MAZE RUNNER' comes to your nearest cinemas tomorrow, i.e September 19th, 2014 and I've already seen it B-)



Star Movies surely had given us an event to remember always! A huge success and much more love :)

The Aquarium Lounge, Delhi

September 10, 2014 Posted by Rishnita Bhandari , , , , , , , 6 comments
When you have an unforgettable dining experience at a place, It needs to be appreciated.
The Aquarium Lounge, GK is one of those experiences that I've had.

Carved with shells


Having situated at a very posh area, i.e M Block Market, GK; The Aquarium Lounge is nicely built. Every corner of the place has something which will amaze you and obviously, every single thing relates to the aquatic life. A big aquarium is built under the counter near bar and is truly amazing! Oh, by the way, they have a huge bar place, and keep almost every kind of alcohol in store. (Yes, I saw the place where they store them)



Haven taken quite a long time to choose what to order, we finally decided.
Reason for such a long time? - Varied Cuisines; American, Mexican, Thai, Italian, Lebanese, Indian are what they serve. From Seafood to Steaks, you'd find it all :)



Thai

Finally we decided on Goong Yang Ha Rod from the THAI section, which is a prawn’s dish! And the LEBANESE Chicken dish, Shish Barak! Both of them arrived in some time. They didn’t keep us waiting.
Goong Yang Ha Rod looked so good at first sight. These prawns were tenderly cooked and were stacked up a stick. It was cooked in 5 different sauces which blended with each other so perfectly that one could never make out if there were actually 5 of them. Along with it, came another sauce which was not really required but gave the prawns a good taste all together.







Goong Yang Ha Rod (Thai)

Their prawns were so delicious that they made one of our friends who didn’t really liked prawns before grab a larger part of the dish, leaving us amazed.

Lebanese



Shish Barak : The Chicken dish was in the form of Kababs formed by minced chicken. It was cooked over a skewer and was served on a mini hot one. It was a plain chicken dish which tasted great with the add - on they provided. Since they were minced chicken, we had difficulties in holding it upright by our forks till they entered our mouth.

The Mini Skewer that they were served upon was another thing that we found pleasant! 





The place plays great music! A little louder but one can ask the staff to lower It down. The ambience was over lit, a little over than usual but unlike other lounges which are very dimly lit! But then that’s the way they want it to be.
They have everything that it takes to entertain the guests! Activity Area, big screens, lively music! The big TV screens are perfect at the times of those game series, where you just want to grab a beer and chill out with your buddies.

After these two dishes, we still had space in our stomach so we ordered Gai Yang, a THAI dish! It was that soft big piece of chicken grilled on skewers, cooked in amazing sauce and served on a stick! 

It tasted more like the first dish that we had, i.e. Goong Yang Ha Rod. The difference was that Gai Yang had a hotter sauce than Goong Yan Ha Rod. It has that extra ounce of spice which made us crave for more.

The portion however, seemed a little inadequate.

Their Butter Chicken was also something which had our thumbs up!

Following are extracts of their menu :

Around the globe


The staff was great, always on their toes for any help that their guests would need. Service was quick and surely above satisfactory!

A delight for all the ladies! And If you're a sufi lover, then double dose of fun is guaranteed.
The Aquarium Lounge hosts Sufi Nights plus Ladies Night! A delighted evening for sure :)
