Writing is a passion that springs from inside .
to me it gives deep fulfilment
if it could give hapiness to the reader that is satisfaction to the writer
most of my blogs are written on the spur with no editing
the moment for writing should be spontaneous and the flow continous
Behind every single second of ones life is a hidden story
the magic of bringing life into words is invigorating
Proud to be an Indiblogger

Mohabati Sulaimani Ustaad Hotel
Any act of creativity with soul stands out from others so does the malayalam film USTAAD HOTEL .
such films raise the hope for the future of mollywood
There is a scene in the movie where the veteran actor Thilakan hands over a glass of tea he made to his grandson Sulfikar the hero of the film ,who is awed by its taste and enquires about it .
Thilakan replies that it is so because it was a sulaimani full of mohabbat . ( a tea laced with love ) .
The film is really a sulaimani with loads of mohabbat .
Dulqar Salman son of the superstar Mamooty ( a tigers son cannot be a cat ) is a Swiss educated chef who loves being one .
Director Anwar Rasheed had made a good choice in him fro the film .
Dulqars father the multicrore Dubai based business man Siddique has his ambitons on investing in a five star hotel to be run by his son in India not as a chef but as a CEO .
To Siddique cooking had always been a stigma having grown up under a father who owned a decriept hotel by the beach in Kozhikode ( Calicut ) and when he thought he had finally left those sordid memories behind he begets a son who wants to be another cook !
His infuriation and his new found wife (having been a widower for many years ) drives his son to his grandfather .
Thilakan the quintisential Asan or master chef makes his grandson go through the works from being a cleaner boy to an errand boy and slowly making him work his way up to being the chef , he also gets his grandson a job in the nearby five star hotel and slowly Dulqar comes to realise that even the Biriyani which the beach 5 star hotel is famous for comes from Ustaad hotel sold at astronomical prices there and that the owners were eyeing the property planning to drive off the old man from the dream of his life .
Dulqar throws away his job and with the help of his lady love Nitya Menon and some friends does a makeover to the Ustaad hotel ,there are so many problems like interference by the food dept and the media encouraged by the enemies which is all overcome and finally Dulqar and his dad come to understand of what is true in life is what is what is done with sincerity but by the time they lose the man who taught them this by living it .
The aromatic Biriyanis made in Ustaad hotel reminded me of the famous Kayikan Biriyanis of Mattancherry Cochin which is also well known for its mohabat .
films message I feel is mohabat wins .........always...... yes it does ,in anything rememberthat !
