Bombay Talkies


(Not actually a review, but a post I did for Bombay Super magazine)

Our grand Bollywood industry has recently completed a century and entire country has been celebrating in some way or the other. So how can Bollywood itself stay behind in celebrating? Celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema, Bombay Talkies, an anthology of 4 short films made by 4 directors, has hit the screens this Friday. The best part of this film is that it’s heavily promoted on the strength of its directors and not of the star cast. Well, that’s something which we’ve almost never seen happening in Bollywood before. Usually the main attraction is always the cast. But with Bombay Talkies, things are really different. How? Well, let me help you with that.  I’ll give not one, not two, but 10 reasons to watch this one.
