The film companion by Anupama Chopra

This one I think already has a lot of fans and me too.

The film companion is a Youtube channel by the film critic Anupama Chopra, and has some good material in short capsules, and I recommend checking this out once every few months as you can then spend a quarter of an hour updating yourself on interesting stuff at one go.

Apsara Aali Laavani from Natarang

Again, no connoisseur of great music - but in my limited view, I think this song's possibly one of the most perfect songs I have seen in a really long time in my lifetime.

Indian films celebrate music, romanticisim by creating the fantasy sequences (started by Raj Kapoor) - as well as the surrealistic scene where the actors begin singing and dancing, and there's great music that magically appears as an accompaniment.

Burger King or Hungry Jacks

When you are travelling with family on a budget, in a foreign country it has its challenges, the primary one being conscious of how much money is being spent, and of course doing the currency conversions to how expensive everything is in your home country’s currency.

That’s why this one is for a service which I think is a big savior for folks like me.  And that is the Burger King in Australia.  This one’s going out especially for them.
