Welcome to the Lounge Show. A weekly look at art, culture, films, food and more.
Our first video is a sneak peek at fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s first flagship store, which just opened in Mumbai. It has got more than just clothes, though the focus Remains… and you guessed it on saris.
Gallery Espace in New Delhi has kicked off the art season with a group show of lesser known artists trying to make a breakthrough. Abstract paintings, installations, paper-work and photographs all feature in the show. Renu Modi, the gallery’s owner, also curated this show, and spoke to Mint about the experience.
Fad diets and endless gym sessions may do just the opposite of making you healthy. So we spoke to renowned nutritionist Ishi Khosla who revealed some little known facts on how to keep fit, eat healthy and exercise the right way.
With our craze for cheesy pizzas and pasta in creamy white sauce, it’s easy to forget that Italian food can be very healthy. Italian chef Luca Ciano whips up a fantastic pasta; full of fresh herbs and produce, with all the flavours of the Mediterranean thrown in.
And finally, our film review. Bollywood is in love with the unconventional. After Dibakar Banerjee, Anurag Kashyap, and Vishal Bharadwaj, debutant director Vikramaditya Motwane brings us Udaan; a coming of age film about a teenage boy’s relationship with a violent father.
