I want to spend my weekend in a place where there is no traffic, no sound pollution and pleasant atmosphere.We wont have many places in Hyderabad. Every time I plan I was like where should I go this time?
This time Ramoji film city came in to my mind. I read in the news paper that there is some carnival and show on 1st of Jan. So we decided to go there.(Then i felt that it was a good idea to spend new year day there)
We started our day late, because we slept late in the night after all the wishes and greetings. We had our breakfast in Chutneys, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad. We started around 11:00 a.m. There was so much traffic on the road because every one was in their arrangements(Of course it s quite common in Hyderabad everyday). We took our way through Dilsukhnagar, L.B Nagar. We reached Ramoji film city at around 1:00 p.m.
We need to travel another 4kms from the main gate of the Ramoji Film city, to reach the actual place. There we thought of parking the car and wanted to explore on foot. There were three types of packages for that day
1. Regular visitor(250 per head)
2.Visitor+ lunch+ snacks and some games(750 per head)
3.Visitor+ lunch+ snacks + dinner and some games(1250)
We took the 750 per head package. Out side food is not allowed there. First we had our lunch because it s already 2 by the time we finished all our things. It was a non veg buffet lunch. The items were good except the chicken biryani. Most of the resorts don't provide nice food(it s my opinion) but here the case was different food was good.
We watched a show on how movies will produce the scenes,sounds and movements etc. It was wonderful. I felt that is it that easy to make a film? :-). Then we traveled in a toy train. It was like as we were going to different parts of the world. They displayed name boards of the stations, and some persons are waiting for their family in the station etc;Then they took us for a round trip of Ramoji Film city. The guide explained all the places. How a building can be used as movie theater, jail, court, house etc; From the one entrance it s like a house and from the other it s like hospital. There is garden here which resembles Brundavan gardens of Bangalore from one side and Moghal gardens from other side. For the movies shooting they will take the order before 2 months. Flowers will blossom in that 2 months time. We sat on a wall above the garden the view of the garden was very good and colorful.
There are some games like dinosaur, Jaint wheel, Baloon shooting etc; We had our snacks at around 6:00 p.m. Actual entertainment started after 6;00 p.m. There was a new year carnival. It was 100 mts length all the girls and guys dressed in a different manner. Some were like angels with wings some were fish-woman, peacock. Some guys were like soldiers. They were dancing according to the music. All the lights switched on. Every place is like a different one in the lightings. Fountains, water fall all are colorful. We walked along with the carnival for 30 mins then carnival reached it s final point. There was a show at 8:00 pm.We dont have that much time we should travel for 2 hrs to reach home so we skipped it.
Unfortunately we didn't take our camera so no photos :-(
Finally we reached home at 10:00 p.m.
That s the end of the day.
Good night :-)
