The New Bollywood at TIFF2010

Two "non-masala, non-singing and dancing" Bollywood films are getting a lot of press in advance of screening at the Toronto International Film festival, Dhobi Ghat and That Girl in Yellow Boots. Both films are collaborations by offbeat Bwood couples. Dhobi Ghat comes from writer/director/producer Kiran Rao and her husband Aamir Khan, who produces and stars in the movie. TGIYB is the result of cross-pollination by writer/director Anurag Kashyap and his girlfriend, writer/star Kalki Koechlin. Both films are set in Mumbai.
