This movie sneaked up on me. I was on IMDB.com this morning and they had a preview for it on the site. It opens tomorrow in theaters worldwide.
Saawariya is the story of two people who meet by chance and fall in love, done Bollywood style. So that means big emotions and even bigger dance numbers. At least I hope so. According the the movie's official site, saawariya means "beloved".
If you're familiar with Indian cinema then you'll be delighted to see another Kapoor on the silver screen. The trailer is visually stunning. The settings and costumes are full of vibrant colors, especially blue and the cinematography is equally alluring.
I just hope it's playing in a theater near me.
[Update 11/11/07] - I just saw the movie and it's excellent! My friend Kevin found a theater that plays mostly Indian films and I was like a kid in a candy shop when I looked around and saw all the posters for upcoming Bollywood movies. I pulled out my notepad and wrote all the titles down so I could Google them. And best of all, I got to dine on samosas and chai tea while viewing Saawariya. How cool is that?!?! The experience was definitely one to remember. If you live in Michigan, drop me an email and I'll tell you where this pearl of a place is. It's so worth the drive.
