Once Fall descends on NYC, I typically retire into my own cocoon of spending way more time indoors, taking long baths, eating pumpkin pie and indulging in the pleasure of watching movies. There is nothing more fabulous in my book than a day spent watching the latest blockbuster or most talked about indie hit. Thankfully this coming week one of the most anticipated events of the season, the South Asian International Film Festival — or SAIFF for short – takes over a few venues throughout the Big Apple with an array of Bollywood blockbusters, some Hindi indie flicks and even India’s official entry to the Oscar for 2010. The festival is in perfect synchronicity with our need to go inward with the first chill, but also our desire to warm our hearts with the kind of emotions only Indian cinema can provide.
