Elevating the in-theatre experience


Redefining the Movie Experience

When anyone thinks of watching a movie at the cinema, a popcorn and coke combo is one of the first things that come to mind.  Actually, if you are a movie buff who doesn’t like to miss a flick then you’ll know what I mean. Also, going to the movies tends to become an unhealthy affair because it’s so tempting to binge on heavy food.  Consequently, before you know it, you’ve downed thousands of calories without even realizing it. But PVR cinemas have taken it upon themselves to bring about a change. Since its inception in 1997 this highly renowned film company has redefined the way entertainment is consumed in India.

Joining the PVR Team

Through its innovating and unparalleled hospitality PVR believes in going an extra mile for one and all. Founded by Mr. Ajay Bijli, it has a strong presence with 754 screens in 162 locations across 64 Indian cities. And ever since I’ve got on board with them I already I feel like I’m a part of their family. Given the stature of this company, my collaboration with them to revolutionize the in-theatre experience has been a riveting journey. While curating a delectable, platate-pleasing menu for their PVR Luxe I drew inspiration from French cuisine.  This happens to be my forte combined with my love for wholesome, Indian delicacies too.  The menu includes some flavoursome combinations of my favourite recipes which I’ve created with a spin.

My menu incorporates dishes which are prepared using fresh ingredients and caters for the dietary requirements of the health conscious consumers. This feast for every palate includes breakfast, Tandoor and grill options, as well as sandwiches and wraps.  Such smart sacks will not only leave movie goers spoilt for choice but are guaranteed to please your taste buds. Moving on, if you are not very hungry but still feel like eating light foods then there’s something for you.   I’ve added a Mexican bowl with smoked salmon, bhel puri with a pineapple chutney, khichdi with grilled chicken and chicken and satay skewers with poha.  You’ll literally gobble them down without actually going on a guilt trip.

Something for everyone

Additionally, my menu consists of irresistible salads, pasta, pizza, protein add on, kids special and sushi which are perfectly balanced and packed with taste too. So, whether you are vegan or not, I’ve literally got a dish with your name it. I’ve also added plenty of beverage options.   Last but not least, to add a touch of sweetness to your PVR luxe experience, I’ve created desserts.  It will be hard to resist the chocolate lava cake with butterscotch ice-cream.  If that doesn’t tempt you, the granola red velvet lava cake with chantilly or caramel banana roti with cream chantilly and caramelised banana will.  It is sure to make your movie experience a memorable one. Of course, when it comes to plating, it goes without say that I’ve made sure that all elements are placed in manner which are pleasing to the eye.

Another very important aspect that comes into play while dining in the dark is spilling. This is why, my recipes for the menu have been rustled up in way that food tastes great without actually distracting a movie goers attention.  So if you have luxury cinema viewing and good food in mind and haven’t given my creations a shot, then be rest assured that PVR’s Luxe movie experience will without a shadow of doubt serve both the purposes.
