Anna and I treated ourselves to a DVD over half term. We watched it in a couple of installments in the evenings, once the kids were in bed (or on their way there at least...). It was Black: an Indian film about a girl who is blind and deaf, and her extraordinary teacher. The first half is based on the childhood of Helen Keller; the second is largely fictitious.

It was a very powerful and moving film, slipping intriguingly between Hindi and English languages (yes, we had the sub titles on!) Well worth watching. You can see the details here.

Hey I LOVE hindi films.

That was a good one. I recommend Om Shanti Om too . Also, Swades, Veer Zaara, and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

All of the above star Shah Rukh Khan.
