Mumbai -- Anyone who is planning to attend the meet, drop me an email.

I haven't decided the venue but would like to keep is somewhere central....Bandra/Sion in case there are people coming from multiple locations.

Mumbai meet -- There is an update regarding the time and the venue. The date remains the same.

Time -- 5:00 PM

Venue -- Prithvi Cafe, Juhu

Directions --
For those who'll be traveling by train; take an auto from Ville Parle OR Santacruz station to Prithvi theater. The cafe is at the same place.

Topics -- Remains the same. I'd like to throw in Dev D as well. Possibly comparing some of the more 'inspired' moments/frames/shots with the originals.

This is subject to change. The changes will be updated in this post and I'll send an e-mail to the people who have contacted me so far.
