Film : 'Bombay Talkies' (London Indian Film Festival 2013)

I have had mixed reviews of this movie but still a 'must see' in my book especially with Anurag Kashyap being one of the four directors.

Mumbai's spectacular homage to 100 years of Indian cinema is a compilation of four films shot by some of its finest directors. Karan Johar's Ajeeb Dastaan Hain Yeh is the story of a cheeky, gay man Avinash who becomes friends with his female boss Gayatri. She invites her new friend home for dinner but Avinash soon discovers Gayatri's husband has a secret. Dibakar Banerjee's Star is based on Satyajit Ray's short story about a struggling actor who gets a role as an extra in a Bollywood film, and he has this one last chance to prove himself to the world and his daughter. Zoya Aktar's joyful Sheila Ki Jawaani tells of a 12-year-old boy whose dad wants him to play football, but he secretly wants to dance like his Bollywood goddess Katrina Kaif. With the help of his sister the boy chases his dreams. Cult director Anurag Kashyap's Murabba shows a young man, Vijay, from small town Uttar Pradesh travelling to the lights of Mumbai to fulfil his father's almost impossible last wish, to request a favour of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.

    Watched "B.A. Pass" today which is one of the movies screened as part of LIFF. All I could say is: Anurag Kashyap has got company in the form of Ajay Bahl, the director of B.A. Pass. A great noir film.

    I have been twice to Haymarket for LIFF. They always reserve the good seats for their organiser/sponsors and leaving all the crappy ones behind for the public paying audience.
