Date night at the Music Box Theater

Devang. Chika
Grandma Ila is in town and so Devang and I escaped for a date night at the Music Box Theater on Southport Ave in Lakeview. We had tickets to the advance screening of The Hundred Foot Journey.  

If you know me, you know that two of my most favorite things in life are France and Food. It was as if this movie was written just for me! Based on the book of the same name by Richard Morais, the story is about an Indian family that moves to a small village in France and opens an Indian restaurant 100 feet away from a Michelin star French restaurant. It has all the feel good and funny moments with the predictable ups and downs. It is all done so wonderfully; and I couldn’t stop smiling at Manish Dayal who plays the lead character of Hassan…ladies, he is very handsome and dreamy!

So, might I suggest a movie to add to your watch-list this summer? In a theater near you on August 8, 2014. Watch it and let me know what you think!?
