Filmmaker and fellow movie reviewer Meera Darji is raising funds for Transindia, a documentary focusing on the lives of transgendered people in India. The fundraiser is in its final days, so head over to Meera’s blog to learn more about how you can support this documentary. While you’re there, why not check out some of Meera’s movie reviews!
The new Hindi film opening in Chicago area theaters on April 12, 2013, looks like it could be pretty cute. Nautanki Saala! is a comedy of errors set within a theater troupe, and it stars Vicky Donor‘s Ayushmann Khurrana.
Last weekend’s new release, Chashme Baddoor, carries over for a second week at the Golf Glen 5 and South Barrington 30.
The Telugu movie Baadshah (showing locally without subtitles) gets a second week at the Golf Glen 5, Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge, and Cinemark Century Stratford Square in Bloomingdale. Other Indian movies playing in theaters this weekend include Settai (Tamil) at the Golf Glen 5 and Sadda Haq (Punjabi w/English subtitles) at the Century Stratford Square.
I have to thank Meera Darji for bestowing a couple of awards upon me recently, including the Best Moment Award and the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. How awesome is this? It looks like an Yngwie Malmsteen album cover!
