MAMI film festival has just started today, and it’s already created a huge buzz. There are movies being shown at the gorgeous newly-renovated Opera House, at a new French-style theatre in Bandra, and so much new, classic, independent, and regional cinema. If that isn’t enough to make you get off your seat, and well, plonk into another to watch a good movie, we have put together a few of the most anticipated movies to watch, and a trailer to give that push. Some of these can be watched after work too, if you have busy days.
