Channel 4’s full Autumn Bollywood lineup revealed

Channel 4 has revealed details of the full lineup for its Autumn season of Indian films.

Adding to the four Bollywood films I’ve covered so far the UK television station has another three modern Hindi films scheduled and will follow these with an extensive overview of the work of a Bollywood legend.

The Dev Anand season comes as the vetern actor celebrates his 88th birthday and will include Guide and Hare Rama Hare Krishna in its eight(!) film run.

As usual the films will be shown in the early hours of the morning. The full season, as revealed by (HT: lainey), will be:

• Love Aaj Kal – Sunday 2 October, 00:45 – 03:05
• Love, Sex Aur Dhoka – Tuesday 4 October, 01:30 – 03:35
• Udaan – Sunday 9 October at 01:35 – 04:00
• Harud – Tuesday 11 October at 01:55 – 03:35
• Mithya – Sunday 16 October
• Rocket Singh: Salesman of the year – Tuesday 18 October
• Ishqiya – Tuesday 25 October

Dev Anand Season
• Baazi – Sunday 30 October
• Guide – Tuesday 1 November
• Hum Dono – Sunday 6 November
• Jewel Thief – Tuesday 8 November
• Hare Rama Hare Krishna – Tuesday 15 November
• Padatik – Sunday 20 November
• Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro – Tuesday 22 November
• Suraj Ka Satwan Ghoda – Sunday 27 November

I’ve edited the details from the Biz Asia story, which incorrectly showed 1 October as a Friday. I’ve also (pedantically) changed the dates to the actual day the films will be shown (e.g. Sunday 2 October at 00:45, rather than Saturday 1 October which is the day’s TV listings in which it will appear.
