More Bollywood on Channel 4
The next films in Channel 4’s Autumn season of Indian films have been announced and will be Harud and Udaan.
They follow Love Aaj Kal and Love, Sex Aur Dhoka, which will be shown at the beginning of October, adding to what will hopefully be another long run of Channel 4’s Bollywood films.
In 2010’s Harud (Autumn), Rafiq and his family struggle to come to terms with the loss of his older brother Tauqir, a tourist photographer and one of the thousands of young men to have disappeared since the onset of the militant insurgency in Kashmir.
But about Udaan (Flight) it’s not clear whether it’ll be the 2010 or the 1997 film of this name.
I’m guessing it’s the more recent film, in which case it’s about a 16-year old boy who returns home to his abusive and oppressive father after being expelled from school.
- Udaan Sunday 9 October, 00:30 – 02:55
- Harud Tuesday 11 October, 01:05 – 02:50
