bajrangi-bhaijaan-reviews-delhifundos

Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the latest Salman Khan potboiler is just another mediocre film. The approach is over the top and the clichéd plot of India – Pakistan rivalry has nothing fresh to offer. Nawazuddin Siddique however, as a co-star, is wow in this otherwise boring film.

mediumwelldone-gurgaon-review-delhifundos

Mediumwelldone is a resto bar in Gurgaon. Claiming to serve authentic American steak, they disappointed us with their overdose of spices in every dish (soup-starter-main course) that we ordered. The décor is nice and the place is quiet. A mediocre experience all in all.
