14th Mumbai Film Festival : A Khullamkhulla guide

If you are really an avid film buff who has the capacity to watch five films a day, you will be able to watch just 35 films out of more than 200 films to be screened at the 14th Mumbai Film Festival that runs between 18-25 October 2012 at various Mumbai venues.  The screenings for ‘aam janta’ begin only on 19th October 2012. You may need some kind of a guide to plan your movements and schedule your screenings in a way you don't miss on the really important art house films of the year 2012.  Here is your Khullamkhulla guide. It does not include the opening film, retrospectives, documentaries, and the films in various ancillary sections like India Gold and Celebrate Age. One hopes this exercise serves some useful purpose to you. Go ahead, have a great time at the festival.
