ZEE5 Announces Interesting Line Up: 10 Shows To Watch Out For

The late Indian chef Tarla Dalal is a food journalist, author, and host of famous cook shows The Tarla Dalal Show and Cook It Up. Tarla Dalal was a homemaker, who had risen to become India's one of most famous chefs and the first Indian to be awarded Padma Shri in culinary arts. She also popularised vegetarian culture back.


This inspiring story is finally adopted by filmmakers and is played by Huma Qureshi. The film Tarla was released at OTT Zee 5 on 7 July. Let's find out if Twitter reviews are flavourful. 

Tarla is helmed by Piyush Gupta and is produced by Nitesh Tiwari and his spouse Ashwini Iyer Tiwari under the banner of RSVP and The Earthsky Pictures. Huma Qureshi is seen in the titular role along with Sharib Hashmi who is best known for his work in Asur and The Family Man. The film was released on Thursday 7 July on Zee 5 and Twitter has some mixed reviews.

Tarla Twitter Review:

While most viewers found the inspiring story a heartwarming tale in simple and subtle ways, other viewers jokingly said that this film will definitely make us all hungry. Others find it to be the post-interval of Vidya Balan's film Tumhari Sulu which is another story of an ambitious housewife.

Most fans seem to love Qureshi's performance calling it "magical" and Qureshi "sliding into the skin" of her character. Fans also can't stop being impressed by Sharib Hashmi's acting calling his acting "surpassing his own set benchmark" and obsessing over his supportive husband role as Nalin Dalal.

Tarla is not a film, but a feeling & an emotion that has been displayed in such a simple & honest manner.#HumaQureshi slides into the skin of her character & makes us believe that it’s Tarla & not…

One other user Tweeted that Huma Qureshi's look nowhere matched and looked like the late chef Tarla Dalal, she neither sounds like her. The user gives credit to the small-scale feminism that led the movie. While one other user questioned why Huma Qureshi (a Muslim by religion) should play the vegetarian Nazi role?

Another user tweeted about the movie calling it an "empowering gem" and "fulfilling as the masterpiece recipe." While most users Tweeted it to be worth the watch.

The film skipped the theatrical release and graced the OTT platform Zee 5 on 7 July. 


Qureshi was last seen in a special appearance as a performer in the song Shikayat in critics acclaimed SLB film Gangubai starring Alia Bhatt, Shantanu Maheshwari, Ajay Devgn, and Jim Sarabh in lead roles. Qureshi will next be seen in Luv Ranjan's film Pooja Meri Jaan, the release date of this film is yet to be announced.
