NY Indian Film Festival: A Boon for Tamil Film Fans

If you love Tamil movies, but you don’t often get to enjoy them on a big screen in the NYC metro area, then today is your day.

The Indo-American Arts Council‘s 2012 New York Indian Film Festival – which already ran Aadukalam and Azhagarsamy’s Horse yesterday – is showing quite a selection this afternoon.

At 12:30 is Varnam, which stars, among others, Sampath Raj, who left such a great impression most recently with his work in Aaranya Kaandam last year:

Then at 3:30 you can catch the film that gave rise to that Kolaveri song, 3 , starring Dhanush and Shruti Hasan, and directed by Aishwarya Rajnikanth Dhanush:

And even if you’re not a Tamil film fan (as incomprehensible as that may be to me), there are plenty of other films from all around the Subcontinent on offer today (and tomorrow), including Chitrangada by Rituparno Ghosh, as well as a take on what happens to one firang boy from the UK when he lands in the capital in Delhi in a Day starring such cinema heavyweights as Lilette Dubey (who has clearly cornered the market on the upscale Delhi housewife roles between this film, Monsoon Wedding and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Victor Banerjee, and a tribute to Dev Anand with the screening of Hum Dono Rangeen.

Here’s the full schedule and the movies are showing at the Tribeca Cinemas in lowe Manhattan.
