Ever wonder what’s up with all these movies coming out – here is a low down from a fellow blogger
In the last few years, there has been a spate of low budget Indian English movies. They don’t have the polish and sophistication that established directors, expensive sets and pricy cinematographers bring to a movie. But neither do they suffer as much from Bollywoodish melodrama. There were also the sleeper hits of last year from well known Indie directors, Mira Nayar (Monsoon Wedding) and Gurinder Chadha (‘Bend it like Beckham’). Both crossed the cultural chasm that plagues movies about South Asian experiences.
What triggered this particular bout of profundities is reading the reviews of Everybody says I’m fine, the first feature film made by Rahul Bose and ‘Where is the party yaar’, directed by Benny Mathews ((via Sajit Gandi and Prashant Kothari respectively). [Random Notes]
