If you’re fan of court room dramas
Witness for the prosecution (1957)
A classic court room drama with finest acting and intrusive story. Please watch black and white version only and not the color one.
Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Highly underrated movie exploring the topic of rape from a different perspective. Class acting by Akshay Khanna and even Richa chaddha. Plus all the court room scenes are done with such conviction.

Its zee5 original short series consisting of 6 episodes. Every episode has a new story setup in a cafe where the conversations takes an interesting turn. Its a decent one time watch to pass the time.

2 professional magicians there to get appointed as a assistant to a great magician who can manipulate time.
Sightly predictable but not bad.
Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I personally loved this short story entirely for the concept it is based on. Kind of gives you some life lessons hidden in the dialogues of the actors.

This is the most funny light hearted short story and the best one. When whatever a drunk friend says turns true!!
Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ep 4 - Walkie
A date where the girl gets connected to her deceased mother through walkie talkie. Not great but a decent watch.
Rating : ⭐️⭐️
Ep 5 - Wanted
What do you do when the guest sitting in your cafe table is a serial killer ?
Its a hilarious take on how media reports news as well.
Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ep 6 - Suicide of a Bomber
Its my least favourite story amongst all. You just wait that something interesting should happen but it doesn’t really give you that satisfaction. However its my perspective, you might like it the most. Its funny in parts though.

Shalmali, a writer, narrates the story of her new novel to her neighbour. As the story ends, you will be left with a question to wonder if its was just the story or an incident from shalmali’s life ?
Paneer Makhani Cheese Burst pizza
1 ) For making Pizza dough -
- Take 1/4 cup warm water, 1tbsp sugar and 1-1/2 tsp yeast. Mix and let yeast froth up.
- Then take 1/2 cup plain flour + 1/2 cup wheat flour and 1/2tsp salt (you can use only plain flour, I used both half-half). Add froth up yeast mixture.
- Knead for around 20 mins.Let it rest for around 1.5 hours.
2. Prepare standard Makhani sauce (using any paneer makhani recipe) I followed "cook with manali" Paneer makhani recipe to make Makhani Sauce. Few tips to keep in mind :
- Just make the grinded makhani paste quite thick.
- After making makhani paste, heat butter and oil , add red chilly powder + coriander powder sauté it for a minute. Add the grinded Makhani gravy and cook it for next 5-6 minutes. Add 1-2 tsp sugar, salt to taste, garam masala, kasuri methi and fresh cream and cook for 2 minutes. Then let it cool.
- I have also sautéd Paneer separately in butter with mint, Kasuri methi, black pepper and salt.
3. To make cheese sauce -
• Combination of Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese - 1 cup
• Milk - 1/2 cup
• Butter - 1tbsp
Boil water in a pan and put glass bowl on. Add above and mix it well using whisker (I don't have hand mixer but if you do have please use it, it will make the process much quicker).
Keep whisking it till you get a thick cheese sauce like consistency.
4. FINALLY the last step to make pizza -
- Divide the rested pizza dough now in half. Take one portion and roll it round with thick boundary. Apply cheese sauce on it.
- Cover it with tortilla or aata chapati(I have used chapati).
- Put Makhani Sauce on it. Then paneer and any other topping you may like.
- Add lotsss of mozzarella cheese. You can also add other cheeses too. I only had mozzarella.
Oven Settings :
- Preheat oven at 200 degree for around 4-5 mins and select bottom element mode on your oven.
-Once preheated, keep the pizza in it, bake for around 18-20 minutes and it should be ready to eat!!
Sorry for recipe being lengthy. Please feel free to le me know if anyone have any other question. :)
Paneer Makhani Sauce
I have followed this recipe for make the makhani sauce.
Clue - 1985
A perfect Crime comedy mystery movie 🍿
It starts with guests being invited for Dinner & then the party host, Mr. Boddy, starts blackmailing them. Soon Mr. Boddy gets murdered and the guests become suspects. Rest of the story is around finding that killer.
Its a fun movie to watch and the suspense is good too.
The fun part is this movie had shot 3 endings and then when the movie was released every theatre showed one random ending among the 3 so that people don’t spoil the suspense for one another. You will guess one of the three endings correctly or may be all of them but its still worth to watch.
I loved Tim Curry in this movie who played Wadsworth, the butler. He is damn funny in the movie. All other actors comic timing is great too. Its an interesting mix and match of crime and comedy.
Emoji for this movie : 😍
