|Unfortunately Fun Cinemas was not so fun for me because the movie wasn't playing with subtitles|
Attempted to see a movie today. The rain came today in spurts, so I thought it best to check out Delhi’s cinema offerings. After some searching on the sparse Time Out Delhi website, the movie Peepli Live stood out as a good option – a satirical look at farmer suicides in India, this Hindi indie was I believe the first ever screened at Sundance. Ironically, I think all the folks back in the U.S. will see it before I do – I could not locate a cinema where it was playing with subtitles. This after a Metro ride to northwest Delhi and a cruise around a slightly downtrodden mall area. I settled for a coffee from Café Coffee Day and the Times of Delhi instead.
Dinner was with fellow fellow Jenny - we had lamb kebabs and wonderfully greasy roti served with raw onion and a tasty green sauce of unknown origin.
