This week, blogger and listener Raja of InsideOut shares his movie-going history.
Raised on once-a-week screenings at the officers' club at the local factory in his little hometown, he tells us about watching Mera Naam Joker in the cinema, seeing Sharmeelee while on holiday to Bombay in 1972, and the less-than-perfect conditions for Teesri Manzil. And some thoughts on going to English movies in India too! The coziness of his childhood movie-watching is going to make you jealous, I promise.
And how is this for wise parting words: "I think the most important thing for me is if I have company, if I have fun.... The movie itself doesn't matter very much."
