In celebration of Diwali, we are showing RRR again – and this film needs to be seen on the big screen. I’ve watched it twice and loved all 187 minutes of this masterpiece. RRR is an exhilarating, action-packed film mythologizing two real-life freedom fighters who helped lead India’s fight for independence from the British Raj, Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju. Set in the 1920s, before their fight for India’s independence began, the film imagines a fictional meeting between the two, set into motion when a young Gond girl is stolen from her village by British soldiers. Screening at Soho House New York, Ludlow House, Soho House West Hollywood, Soho House Chicago, and Soho House Nashville. Sign up here.

A tender tale of love, Sai Paranjpye’s Sparsh is a nuanced window into the complex psychology of physical disability that often comes in the way of emotional connections. World Sight Day is observed annually on the second Thursday of October, and is a global event meant to draw attention on blindness and vision impairment. Screening at Soho House Mumbai; sign up here.
