Friday On My Mind: Pan Nalin

Hear Pan Nalin chat about Faith Connections and his craft.


If you haven’t heard of the 1964 classic yet, it’s  Satyajit Ray’s adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s novel. Why go see it? It’s a love triangle centered around a lonely housewife in Victorian Calcutta, and was the start of Ray’s success as a master of world cinema.


This is a film about an Indian father desperately searching for his 12-year-old son who goes missing after being sent to work at a factory. And it was also a hit in Venice and Toronto.

Gourmet Cinema: The Lunchbox

This one has us drooling all over our keyboards at the very thought of top Australian celebrity chef Luke Mangan whipping up an Indian feast to go with this flick. Irrfan Khan stars in this hit indie food and romance filled movie, which perfectly suits a multi-course spread of  glass brasserie, with bubbles, Little Creatures beer and Eden Road wine.
