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.

Men with a diet rich in animal protein and meat such as sausages and cold cuts could be at a greater risk of death, finds a study.

The study found men who favoured animal protein over plant-based protein in their diet had a 23 per cent greater risk of death than men whose diet was more balanced in terms of their sources of protein.

In addition, a high overall intake of dietary protein was associated with a greater risk of death in men who had been diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease or cancer.

However, a similar association was not found in men without these diseases, said the study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
