Hungry for some big screen Bollywood eye-candy but
don’t know where to find it? Log onto www.hibsa.com,
the self-proclaimed ‘one of a kind portal serving the Indian
community in Greater Cleveland’ for the local weekly screening
times. Currently, Bollywood movies are shown off and on at Parma
Ridge theater (at the intersection of Snow and Ridge roads) and
also at Parmatown Mall theater, or sometimes at Hickory Ridge Theater
in Brunswick. Movies are usually shown for one week (two if by popular
demand). And if you’re tempted to think this movie’s
plot will be somehow different—Hibsa also has links
to Bollywood reviews.
Maybe you or someone you know is in the market for a ‘chosen
one’. Hibsa links to online matchmaker services such as www.indianmarriages.com
which (seemingly) arrange marriages, whether you’re Hindu,
Muslim, Sikh or living in New York or Michigan (Ohio still to come),
or just have
a traditional date. After you set your wedding date, check out
the Web site of Num Num, a DJ who spins "Asian Groove"
If you miss the masala film or don’t want to
drop $7.50 at the theater, try the Lakewood Library for the largest
selection of rentable Bollywood in the area. Or go to any Indian
grocery store, such as Indo-American at Warrensville and Miles roads,
to purchase it on VHS.
Thanks to Beth Wolfe for leading us to discover much of what
rocks about Bollywood.
