the indian movie experience

i survived my first indian movie theater experience, barely.

plenty of people talked over the movie. cell phones rang. the dramatic tension was largely undone by a poorly placed intermission. the aspect ratio seemed wrong.

fortunately i had a buffer between me and the masses. if the theater were full it would have been a complete disaster.

at least i only paid about $2.40.

You should be happy. It sounds like a Berkeley-Oakland cinematic experience at 1/3 the price.

Interesting....I wonder if they
had english subtitles.

Did you understand anything?

Which movie did you see?

Naz8 in Fremont, CA plays hindi
movies with English subtitles :-)
