Our own film festival

March 4, 2005

We have been having our own film festival…we suddenly realized that THREE
Oscar nominees were running in the same multiplex…so it was Aviator on Sunday, Black (a Hindi movie about a deaf-blind girl and her alcoholic teacher….Rani Mukherjee and Amitabh) on Monday, Tuesday Swades (a sickly sweet Hindi movie), Wednesday Finding Neverland (another sentimental melodrama) Thursday, Ray…the last movie was really excellent…both the acting by Jamie Foxx, who really lived the part of Ray Charles….and the superb R&B and country music throughout the movie….tomorrow is a rest day, and then we take 3 children from our apartment to The Incredibles!

tickets at this multiplex are 130 rupees apiece, snacks can easily set you back another 300, and then there are the parking charges….yow!
