December 26, 2016: If you are a foodie and your idea of a perfect day means curling up on sofa, watching a nice movie and having your favourite food- well, here is a perfect solution. Film industry has always been inspired by food. Hollywood has been making some great food movies since a long time. Movies like Ratatouille, Burnt, No Reservations, Chef, Julie and Julia, The Hundred-Foot journey, and much more have been appreciated worldwide.

Bollywood is not very far. We have been having a lot of food-centric movies in the past few years. Here are a few Hindi food movies we have enjoyed:

  1. Baawarchi

Light hearted comedy movie, directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Bawarchi showed Rajesh Khanna, as Raghu, working as a cook for a lazy joint family. Making delicious cuisines is just one of the many talents of Raghu. He manages the household and performs the chores at a lightning speed.

The movie is a sheer novelty of actors, script as well as songs.

  1. Ramji Londonwale

This 2005 movie starred R. Madhavan and a guest appearance from none other than Amitabh Bachchan. Though the movie was released without any mega hype, the plot of the movie does all the talking. The story of how a cook from a small town in India reaches London only to find out that his boss is dead.

He makes Indian delicacies to impress his love interest. The idea of sugar-free halwa makes him very popular among the London crowd.

  1. Cheeni Kum

The R Balakrishnan directed, Cheeni Kum, portrayed the love story of a 64-year-old chef at the finest Indian Restaurant in London and a 34-year-old software engineer. The twist comes in the story when Amitabh has to impress his father-in-law.

This is the only Indian movie till date that gives you an insight to a kitchen, run by an India.  The old chef prepares delicacies to prove his worth to his father-in-law.

  1. Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana

The plot of the movie is how Om struggles to find the secret ingredient in his daarji’s chicken curry that made it so damn good. He needs to find this ingredient to protect his family from a crisis.

The film shows how much people can bond over a hot kadhai.

This movie is not just about the struggle of an Indian housewife, trying to keep up with his husband and modern kids.

Shashi’s business started gaining popularity. It was the only hope in her life where her family kept demeaning her. She finds a friend in the US who is a French chef. So, basically, the story revolved around food.

Parents, according to a latest health news if your kids throw attitude and do not listen to you despite repeated warnings at home, it is time to check the quality of their food as microbiome in the gut plays a key role in deciding kids’ behaviour, a novel study has found.

The study of early school-aged children (in the age group of 5-7) showed a connection between the bacteria in their gut and their behaviour, said researchers, adding that parents play a key role in their kids’ microbiome beyond the food they provide.

“Childhood is a formative period of behavioural and biological development that can be modified, for better or worse, by caregivers and the environments they help determine,” said microbiology and statistics researcher Tom Sharpton Oregon State University.

The gut microbiota features more than 10 trillion microbial cells from about 1,000 different bacterial species.

The researchers, which included scientists from Stanford University and University of Manitoba, surveyed the gut microbiomes of 40 school-aged children.

The scientists collected stool from the children and parents filled out questionnaires on socioeconomic risk, behavioural dysregulation, caregiver behavior, demography, gut-related history (like antibiotic use) and a week-long diet journal.

They used a technique known as shotgun metagenomics to apply whole-genome sequencing to all of the organisms found in the subjects’ stool.

The technique gives insight into which microbes live in the gut and their functions.

“One of the novel associations we found was between Type VI secretion systems and behaviour,” said Keaton Stagaman of the OSU College of Science.

The findings, published in the journal mBio, are important because microbiome can shed light on which children are heading toward mental health challenges.

“Future studies will hopefully show whether these secretion systems have direct or indirect effects on the gut-brain axis and which organisms carry these systems,” Sharpton said.

The gut-brain axis, the reciprocal communication between the enteric nervous system and mood or behaviour, is a rapidly growing and exciting body of research.

The researchers said that future work should also take a close look at the impacts of diet on the microbiome and behaviour. (IANS)
