Doors at 7:30pm; film starts at 8pm
We kick off our summer Bollywood series with Academy Award-nominated Lagaan. Now we didn’t see the Bosnian film that eventually won the statue that year, but we’re confident that it had less song and dance numbers, lacked a properly melodramatic love triangle, and didn’t even attempt to make an analogy between a cricket match and the struggle against ruthless colonial masters. So what was the Academy thinking? Seriously.
