  Movie Poster - Chennai
by PierreZA

To watch a Tamil movie in Chennai could be one of the highlights of a visit to Chennai. Even though I don?t understand the language, there are enough English words every now and then, and the movie is entertaining enough to follow and enjoy!
For a few rupees (Ind Rs 80 ? Jan 2008) I got a seat on the balcony, which was great. I went to the Albert cinema in Egmore.
It seems that it very much a family affair. During intermission, you can buy anything from popcorn to warn Indian snacks.
The A/C is ice cold; there are lots of restlessness in the audience and lots of conversation. The sound is so loud, that last mentioned does not bother at all.
An experience you should not miss!
I did not have the chance yet in Mumbai or orther cities, but will certainly try to go when possible.
I have a page on Chennai if you would like to read more about this city
