Hotel Sangam, Tanjore

As far as the hotel scene in Tamil Nadu, apart from Chennai, is concerned, Sangam is a known and trusted brand for years. As someone who is accustomed to this brand since childhood, I have personally had a lot of my friends and family members stay in different hotels of Sangam over the years. The hotel is very well known among foreign tourist who looks for luxury accommodation in towns that are tourist hotspots such as Thanjavur, Trichy and Madurai. 

I, on the other hand, got to stay in this hotel quite recently when a friend’s engagement was planned in a nearby village. The groom’s side didn’t want to know more about the groom’s friends and they decided that a room far away from the engagement hall is the best way to save any trouble because of us. So, long story short, after attending the function, we travelled all the way back to Thanjavur city where we put ourselves behind the closed doors of Hotel Sangam and killed the night with a gang of friends. 

As we came to the hotel late in the evening and were barely there for a few hours and that too to sleep, I couldn’t venture out and check out the rest of the facilities that are in store at this property. What I do know is that their rooms, despite being old school, are well maintained. They have ample parking space and a lovely swimming pool which is hard to come by in this town. And of course, their restaurant is also one among the best in the area and the property is strategically placed away from the hustle and bustle of the central town but close enough to reach the major tourist destinations in a matter of minutes. 

Overall, it was a short but sweet experience at Sangam. I do wish I get to stay in this property soon in a position where I can enjoy the facilities offered by them to the max.

Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi shoulder a mediocre film: Master Review

A flawed protagonist and a powerful antagonist have always proven to be successful tropes in the world of cinema. The hero, when being anything but perfect, makes way for a beautiful story arc as he convalesces and a strong villain makes the hero’s triumph at the end larger. Despite having both of these, Vijay’s Master feels far from a perfect flick thanks to succumbing to irregular pacing and a middling screenplay. Master follows the trials and tribulations of JD (Vijay), an alcoholic college professor whose valiant effort towards the student community plants a belief in his colleague Charu (Malavika Mohanan) that he would be able to do the same to the kids in a juvenile correction centre that needs… correction. Armed with a just kada, a classic four-wheeler, a Persian cat and a cool pair of sunglasses, JD embarks on a journey that will collide with that of Bhavani’s (Vijay Sethupathi). On paper, Master looks like a failproof star vehicle – the story of a man out there to teach lesson

InterContinental Mahabalipuram

After visiting InterContinental many times to meet people who were staying there, for events & functions and for, of course, dining in, I decided it was high time I experienced a stay at this property. A while back, it happened and here I’m chronicling that experience.  Location, Reception and First Impressions InterContinental Mahabalipuram stands among a handful of star properties that are located close to Mamallapuram but not exactly inside the bustling town. It’s situated on the ever-busy East Coast Road and is a cool 42kms away from Central Chennai and almost the same distance from the Chennai International Airport as well (yes, I checked). Post the ‘vanakkam’ by the security personnel who greets you right at the gate, the first thing one would notice about ICC is how simple and elegant it is. Once you get past the security checks, you’re welcomed by the sky and a long pathway and standing on the edge of it gives us a bird’s-eye view of the property. The reception is a high ro

Munna Bhai Dhaba, Sullurpet, Andhra Pradesh

  This time, we rode almost 100 kms to discover this hidden gem. Located at the ever busy NH16, Munna Bhai Dhaba is one of those places that dishes out some delicious food for you to cherish en route to your destination. Just that, this time it was our destination. After starting at 8:30PM from Chennai, we reached here around 10ish and by that time some items were unfortunately sold out. Out of 10, 6 of us were hardcore carnivores while the rest of them were Eggetarians. We opted for a couple of Chicken dishes which included Munna Bhai special chicken (a yummy starter with sauteed chicken and cashews) and a couple more Chicken dishes which are named after the states of our country. One such dish was the which had an egg base with piping hot Chicken curry on top which was the star of our dinner. A surprise show-stealer was the Onion Pakoda which looked bleh but tasted great. Rotis were so warm and fluffy that we finished 40 of them in no time. Egg Bhurji was apparently good too. Obvious
