Hi

Re: Indian Movie in Switzerland?

Indian movies are shown rarely in Switzerland.

But you can find stores which sell DVDs, like the one in Zurich www.punjab.ch

Otherwise, I'm sure you know the internet way ;-)

Re: Indian Movie in Switzerland?

Thank you very much for the information. Do you know how much for the dvd? I want to compare whether it's cheaper to ask my friend to send it here from Australia/India.

And do you know any Indian shops in Geneva (It's closer for me to go to Geneva).

Thank you once again.

I guess this guy sends the DVDs by post as well. I do not know the exact price, but should be somewhere around 5-6 CHF, better to call and check with them.

You can get some pointers from this forum - http://www.bollywoodforum.ch/

Sorry, I do not know any shops in Geneva.

btw I did visit London once to watch movie "Sarkar Raj" few years back !! That's an option too

Hi because you are in Switzerland, maybe you can start to watch this movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. It's a very famous love story movie, it's quite old movie though (1995). The couple met first time on the trip in Switzerland

I love watching Indian movies on my flights to and from the US. My primary motivation was to see the dancing parts since I always look for fresh ideas for my Zumba classes . I can recommend Table 21 for its plot and its great message too. Just last week I watched Jolly LLB about a young trial lawyer trying to win a case against a tough opponent, and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani a romantic comedy. My favorite of all, however, was Bol Bachchan; this film is just hilarious

The movies I have seen on the plane are in Hindi with English subtitles. To be honest, I had to Google "bollywood movies" to remember the titles. To make your own film choice, you can look for "List of Bollywood films" on Wikipedia. Swiss Air's current selection is also available from their Inflight Entertainment Catalogue at Swiss.com>Flying>Services On Board.

Enjoy

Re: Indian Movie in Switzerland?

If you are going to UK, much much cheaper to go to Leicester- fly to Luton or East Midlands via EasyJet. The Golden Mile has several Indian cinemas and there are many DVD shops, restaurants, jewellery and clothing, food and spices stores. And of course the best Diwali celebrations in the whole of Europe.

From Wiki:

The Golden Mile is a name given to a stretch of the Belgrave Road in Leicester, United Kingdom. The origin of the name is often, mistakenly attributed to the many shops selling gold jewellery. In fact, the name was first used in the late 1960s and early 1970s when a proliferation of yellow-amber traffic lights appeared along a short stretch of road (one mile to be exact). While commonplace now, at the time it was unique in Leicester. It is renowned for its authentic Indian restaurants, sari shops, and jewellers,[1] and has been described as "the closest that Britain comes to an Indian bazaar".[2] This area of the city is also famous for its seasonal lights which combine to celebrate winter festivals including Diwali and Christmas. The Diwali celebrations in Leicester are focused on this area and are the largest outside India.[2][3]

From Leicester City Council website:

Diwali - The Festival of Light





Diwali Lights Switch-On 20th October 2013
Diwali Day 3rd November 2013




Diwali Celebrations in Leicester are one of the biggest outside of India, with up to 35,000 people attending the switch on of the lights on Belgrave Road and even more attending Diwali day itself in the heart of the city's Asian community. Enjoy the fireworks display and live cultural entertainment on stage as the festival of light marks the start of the Hindu New Year.


For further information visit www.visitleicester.info/diwali

Google Golden Mile Leicester for pictures. The sales for clothing and jewellery after Diwali celebrations are just amazing.
