Friday - Sunday, September 1 - 3
Admission: Free, $10 minimum
Showtimes: 7:30pm and 10pm
Note: the Soundtrack for all shows will be the
Bollywood version, except on Sunday night
at 10pm, when we'll play the original Dirty Dancing soundtrack.
You thought it couldn't happen, but it really can and it
really will. We present both Dirty Dancing films (but
NOT Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights)
side-by-side on two screens each.
You all know the original. Here the description of its Bollywood
"Dirty Dancing" blatantly stolen nearly
shot for shot. The story begins with the family of Dr. Daksh Suri
arriving in Goa for a month-long vacation. Accompanying Dr. Suri
are his wife and two daughters, the extroverted Samara and shy,
bookish Muskaan. Muskaan befriends a group of dancers who perform
risqué and exotic routines to Salsa music (the song exposing
the girl to such forbidden pleasures is aptly titled, "The
Sound of the Future.") at the hotel’s discotheque.
One among them is pregnant, and Muskaan—always eager to
make things work out for the best—boldly decides to step
in as her replacement when she goes for her abortion. Completely
clueless when it comes to the dance, rugged and rebellious Dino
steps in to train her, and in the process helps her overcome her
fears. And in case you didn’t guess, they also fall in love.
"Move with my Body," another ridiculously sultry R&B
breakdown is performed against a Che Guevara backdrop. Onjolee
Nair as the awkward Muskaan even looks something like Jennifer
Grey. Not to be believed!
