3 Must Watch Movies on Chef

These days I have been watching loads of movies, not at a theatre, I must say home theatre. My hubby is a crazy fan of AR Rahman’s music, so he always makes sure that extra speakers are connected to TV. I didn’t know that sound effects make a lot more difference to the song or picture quality. On this note, recently we have been to AR Rahman’s Encor, live show in Hyderabad. Awesome experience, this is the first time ever I attended such a show.

“Chef”, “The Hundred-Foot Journey” and “Ustad Hotel” are the movies on Chef which I have watched couple of times. Get set to get glued to your seats, these movies are inspiring and best part is complete family can watch together.
