Well, I am Sasikanth Paturi, an aerospace, electronics and instrumentation engineer, and a master of global business graduate, working at an MNC in Hyderabad. I’m a big time foodie, a movie freak, and a pretty good critique. Here you shall find the reviews of the restaurants I visit, movies I watch, and my travelogue too. Do let me know if there is something you want me to try or check out!!
PS: It’s been really long that I’ve updated this site, but something new is up in store, hopefully very soon!
25/7/15: Ant Man is a good watch.. very different from the regular Marvel films. I’d rate it 7.5/10.
28/6/15: I liked Jurassic World; it actually made me feel like watching the original. I’d give it an 8/10.
20/5/15: Mad Max – Fury Road is an intense, action packed film. Worth a watch if you love action films! It’d rate it 8.5/10.
28/2/15: Badlapur is a good watch with some noteworthy acting. But I think story could have been more powerful! I’d rate it 7/10.
3/10/2014: The Fault in Our Stars is the most beautiful movie I’ve watched this year!
8/8/2014: Guardians of the Galaxy is a good watch. I’d rate it 8.5/10 🙂
17/5/2014: Enjoyed a good meal with the Desi Foodies group at Cream Center. It’s nice to be recognized because of my reviews 😀
15/5/2014: Yay! New server! 🙂
20/4/2014: Argh.. another year down the lane for me!
16/2/2014: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is one of the most preposterous movie I’ve seen in recent time (apart from Dhoom 3 of course)!!
19/12/2013: I know that I’ve been away for long, but I have a movie review finally! Should have a couple more coming up soon. (Just pray I keep winning free tickets!) 😛
25/10/2013: Went to Chutneys Jubilee Hills with amma and dad for dinner. Surprised with the prices in Hyderabad. I can’t believe a small samosa at a sweet shop costs 10 bucks, and a curry at Chutneys costs 250+24% taxes!
8/5/2013: Watched Baadshah. It’s a decent entertaining film, very similar to other Srinu Vaitla films. Plus points are Brahmanandam and music, while too many fights spoil the fun. I’d give it a 7/10.
6/5/2013: Went to Shanbhag with mom and dad, and ordered the usual – Tomato Soup, Spring Rolls, Malai Kofta, Butter Naan and Ghee Rice. Except for the fact that the quantity of Spring Rolls had come down, everything was yum, especially the Ghee Rice, which was out of the world (after a long time)!
15/4/2013: Sorry for disappearing guys! I’ve been super busy over the last couple of months, and also had some backend issues with my website. Will be back in action in a few days, when I return to Hyderabad!! 😀
14/1/2013: One year of sasikanth.me!! About 10000 views from 57 countries!! Thanks guys!! 🙂
4/1/2013: Happy New Year guys!! Unfortunately, there won’t be much content this year on my site 🙁
23/8/2012: Am on a 20 day sabbatical 😉
9/8/2012: After a long hiatus, I’m back!! 🙂
9/7/2012: Dropped into this little place called Cafe Churchill at Colaba. I used to love their French Fries with Cheese, but this time around, they were very bland, had neither taste nor flavor. Had a Mushroom Lasagna which was pretty decent. Followed it off with desserts at Theobrama, the best dessert shop I’ve been to so far in India. Had a Black Forest Pastry, Chilly Chocolate Mousse and a Mini Cupcake. The Cupcake was the best I’ve ever had in my life so far. Bliss!!
8/7/2012: Dropped into this little pizza place called Pizzaroma at Hiranandani Gardens, Powai, Mumbai. Though they are a little overpriced, the pizza was yum. With a perfect thin crust, gooey cheese, it is a must try place.
20/6/2012: I now happen to be the #1 Foodie in Hyderabad on Zomato.com! 😀
20/6/2012: Dropped in at Maharaja Chaat in Kavuri Hills (Hitech City) with amma. Had a Special Pav Bhaji and Ragda Pattis. Awesome!! If you haven’t tried this place yet, drop in soon!!
6/6/2012: Ordered a Three Cheese, Cheese Burst Pizza and Bread-sticks from Dominos. Yummy is not the word.
18/5/2012: New landing page on a new hosting server. Yay!! 😀
15/5/2012: Dropped in at Chung-Hua, Basheerbhag, to pick up some Manchurian Noodles. For 100 bucks, the quantity was pretty decent, and so was the taste, but the noodles were dripping oil. Will dine in at the restaurant and review it soon. (Review)
1/5/2012: Want to watch Vicky Donor, but no tickets!! 🙁 (Finally did on 4/5/2012. Review here)
20/4/2012: Yay!! I’m 26!! 😀
14/4/2012: Was at My Heart Coffee at Kondapur for a Couch Surfing meet. Had a Nutty Cold coffee and some kind of pasta. Coffee was good, pasta was very different from what I expected, but alright. Funny thing was when a couple of guys ordered Fajitas, they were served with chapathi’s instead of tortilla’s. Decent place, nice ambiance, a lil too expensive though. Will do a proper review soon!!
9/4/2012: Went to 100 Degrees with my cousins. Had the Spicy Cottage Cheese pizza, Crumbled Melting Cheese sizzler, and Mushroom Hot and Sour sizzler. As I mentioned in my review, there is no consistency with the food at this place. Both the pizza and the Crumbled Melting Cheese sizzler tasted very different, but luckily, they still tasted good. The Mushroom sizzler tasted alright. Overall, it was a decent experience. I’d probably give it an 8.5/10 this time around.
8/4/2012: Visited Viva Italia in the White House Building, Begumpet. Awesome Pizza and Pasta. Couldn’t take pictures. Will visit again and write a review soon.
16/3/2012: Watched Paan Singh Tomar today, but for some reason, don’t feel like writing its review. It was a decent film with some great acting by Irrfan Khan, but the screenplay, and the general idea of the film, I thought was disappointing. In my opinion, with the acting skills the director had at hand, he could have made a better film, one which doesn’t leave the audience disoriented and perplexed in the end.
3/3/3012: Been visiting this small restaurant called Mirch Masala on Road No. 11, Banjara Hills, with colleagues for lunch these days. It serves decent food and is reasonably priced, but is nothing so great as to be reviewed 😛
18/2/2012: Apparently Nippu and Ekk Deewana Tha suck, so not planning to watch them. Will catch up with Poolarangadu soon!!
16/2/2012: Received a Taj Deccan gift voucher from zomato.com. My diet down the drain!! 😛
14/2/2012: Sent mom and dad to watch Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. They liked it. Mom gives a 7.5/10.
13/2/2012: Hogged at my friend’s restaurant Hotel Abhilasha at RTC crossroads. It was a specially prepared meal, so not writing a review. We had Veg. Manchuria, Paneer Tikka and Veg. Fried Noodles. Everything was yum.
12/2/2012: Watched The Descendants on DVD. I’d give it a 7/10. It was a drama with great acting and awesome cinematography.
