Film quality in my life is definitely improving as of late. Just saw the fantastic “Mr and Mrs Iyer”. This film deals beautifully with the touchy subject of ethnic tensions in India. As you might have guessed, the subject matter doesn’t lend itself particularly well to the Bollywood formula, so there weren’t any showy upbeat dance numbers and the film was quite short by normal standards (about 2 instead of the usual 3 hours). Rittu tells me that although she thinks it a great film, and despite its critical acclaim, it only did well in the more urban areas of India.
