Today I booked tickets for going to Kerala next weekend. I went to symphony theatre to watch "Lord of the Rings", but I reached there late. Had lunch from Amaravati restaurant and came back.
I always enjoy the Andhra style meals from this restaurant, and go there once in a while (it is a bit expensive, though..). In general I like Andhra cooking style, with lot of chillies and spices. Mixing rice, sambar, chutney and few spoons of ghee with the curry made of spinach, then with masala butter milk, curd and fried chillies, chutney powder.. It is delicious and also quite a heavy lunch. Normally I take only a light dinner after a lunch from Amaravati. They also keep few beautiful paintings inside the restaurant. I don't know who are the artists, but all look very beautiful.
Probably Andhra Food is the only Andhra product that I like nowadays. I haven't read much of Telugu literature, but the stories I read of Madhuranthakam Rajaram were just mediocre. Regarding Cinema, I believe the most stupid movies in India are made in Telugu and I am yet to see a tolerable Telugu movie. Sometime back I had the misfortune to watch a "Super Duper Hit" Telugu movie called "Badri" and I felt like someone had tied my hands and legs and dumped me in a cage full of monkeys. I was a fan of Simran those days (of course, not because of her acting), and went to see a movie called "Samarasimha Reddy" which was another major hit, and I escaped from the theatre after the interval.
I dont intend offend anybody. I just wrote some of my thoughts that's all.
