FROM FRI 14 APR MEZZANINE GALLERY 45 FRI 26 MAY TUE 30 MAY 20:05 NFT2 20:10 NFT3 Bombay India 1995. Dir Mani Ratnam. With Arvind Swamy, Manisha Koirala. 141min. Digital. Tamil with EST. 12A Tamil filmmaker Mani Ratnam is that uncommon director who consistently makes ‘Mindie’ (mainstream + indie) films – thoughtful, yet with song and dance – and brilliant song picturisation. The genius of AR Rahman, who won two Oscars® for Best Original Song and Best Original Score for Slumdog Millionaire, lifts this film, a romantic musical and pacifist plea set against the Hindu-Muslim riots that rocked Mumbai. MON 22 MAY SAT 27 MAY 20:20 NFT3 17:45 NFT3 I Have Found It Kandukondain Kandukondain India 2000. Dir Rajiv Menon. With Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Tabu, Mammootty, Ajith Kumar, Abbas. 157min. Video. Tamil with EST. PG Oscar® winner AR Rahman composes for this wonderful, eye-popping, Tamil musical adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. The songs, including one based on a romantic poem by freedom fighter Subramania Bharati, draw from Carnatic music, folk and jazz. The energetic title song was shot in Scotland’s Eilean Donan castle; if Austen were around, she would need smelling salts. @BFI FREE
