Come and watch a Bollywood movie at my good friend NPR's house.
These movies have become quickly a favorite of mine.
For those who haven't seen Bollywood movies before - Bollywood music is the soul of the movie. It and the accompanied dances move the story along. These movies are usually longer than American flicks, with a run time of 2.5 - 3 hours, but don't worry, there is an intermission. As Bollywood movies vary in emotion, from dramas to comedies, so does its music. Bollywood music ranges from marriage songs to traditional instrumentals to karaoke and is sung in languages like Hindi, Punjabi and many more; as is the dialog of the movie. However, there are subtitles for those of us that don't speak Hindi.
NPR's home is located in West Portland (Bethany area), about 15 minutes west of downtown Portland.
