Movies to watch
Sunday night always calls for a good movie and a large box of salted and caramel popcorns. For all you movie lovers, this weekend is going to be a much-needed treat. Cinemas all across the country have a great line-up of movies to show. For Hemsworth fans, it’s time to get over Rush and move on to witness his thunderous glory in Thor 2. Bollywood fanatics can still have a glimpse of Ram-Leela, and if you have already watched it, Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan bring another rom-com Gori Tere Pyaar Mein to our cinemas. If you are one of those die-hard Hunger Games fans, you’re in luck because the sequel Catching Fire is finally here! And for those who still need to catch up with older movies, don’t be disappointed. Quite a few screens are still showing Gravity, Waar and Free Birds. Watch away!
What’s the scene?
Fashionistas living in Karachi; you have every reason to smile this week. Designer duo Ayesha-Somaya will be showcasing their new Zodiac digital print collection at their studio on Monday, from noon onwards. Also, House of Ensemble’s in-house designer Shehrnaz will be introducing a new range of Indian Kantha outfits at the multi-brand outlet on November 26. If you fancy a fashion show, head out to Port Grand on November 30 for the Winter Parade. However, if you prefer a day out with the family, you don’t want to miss the dolphin show at PAF Maritime Museum also on November 30. Lahoris can enjoy a relaxing night listening to some qawwalis as the Californian qawwals Fanna-fi-Allah arrive in Lahore for a 10 day tour.
Lowdown on the latest
For those of you who are feeling a little under the weather due to the changing season, treat yourself to a little retail therapy. Lawn brands Gul Ahmed, Al Karam and Khaadi have all launched their winter collections. Now you can look good and feel warm! Ego’s winter collection also debuted recently, so be sure to check that out. If food is more up your alley, be sure to head out to Chinese restaurant The Lantern, in Karachi. They’re currently offering up to a 40% discount on lunch every day, plus 35% off on delivery and takeaway orders. If you frequent Café Forty4 but have tried everything on their menu, you’ll be happy to hear that they’re launching a new menu. Even more delightful treats for your taste buds!
