Bollywood Movie Night

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.

    I prefer the old school Bollywood films with more singing and dancing but it was still really nice seeing everyone.

    I love Bollywood Movies and am excited to come to this event. However I do not drive so I would love to get an idea of what the location is so that I can confirm I will be able to make it. FYI - I live in SE PDX if anybody else is coming from there

    Hey,
    Is it too late to sign up? My plans changed for the evening so I didn't think I could come.

      Never mind. I'm tired and thought this was tonight! This looks like fun, but I have my kids that night.

      Heather, my home is close to Sunset High School, zip code 97229. There might be few people coming from east side, you might be able to carpool with them.
