A round-up of some of the very best things to do in the metropolitan city each month…
Movies: The Short Screenings
On the 5th of April, the CineShorts Film Appreciation Club screens a selection of short indie films at the creative Castiko Space. The four films are directed by Mithun Bajaj, Aneeta Patel, Venky AV and Sameer Mishra and Sandeep Jha and tell stories that range from a glimpse into the competitive world of Indian ice hockey to the difficulty of pledging your loyalty to the mafia. A gathering of good film and good conversation with like-minded people, this is a must for cinephiles of all shapes and sizes.

Food and Drink: Americano
Chef Alex Sanchez from The Table displays his culinary skills and his love for Italian food at his new neighbourhood joint, Americano. Nestled within the heart of the Kala Ghoda / Fort area, Americano serves straight up but delicious American-inspired Italian fare. Think flavourful dishes like hand-stretched pizza topped with Brussels sprouts, handmade spaghetti noodles, spiced corn on the cob and roast chicken paired with handcrafted cocktails inspired by Mumbai, all plated within a palette of blues reminiscent of the Italian Mediterranean.
