Leena of A Spoonful of Ghee gives a desi, suburban-intrepid counterpoint to downtown-focused Todd on watching Bollywood in the San Francisco Bay area.
Starting at the age of 12, Leena relied on the Naz 8 (now closed) for her Bollywood fix. These days she has a few other options available, but nothing can replace the bickering aunties and screeching children of the Indian multiplex of her youth. And whatever you do, do not miss her re-enactment of the cinema's hotline listing that week's offerings and bragging about a film featuring "the one and only superstar, heartthrob of millions, yes, the one and only Sanjay Dutt."
She also has a great post on her experiences renting Bollywood films in the San Francisco area here.
Leena, Beth is desperate to go to the movies with you. She knows exactly what you mean when you talk about missing your little raffle ticket stub. Call her.
