Adjacent Meridian Point,
Mixing the sweet madness of bombay with the lavish production values of old Hollywood, Bollywood accounts for nearly half of Indian cinema’s annual box office. Which, given that the latter is the world’s largest film industry, with an annual output of 1,986 feature films a year, is really saying something.
And it’s saying something with the sort of lavish, deliciously OTT dance routines that would have Busby Berkeley spinning in his tutu.
Given just how global Bollywood’s appeal has become in recent years, it’s hardly surprising that the busiest film production industry in the world made its way to Ireland recently, shooting the smash hit Ek Tha Tiger (India/Ireland/G/132mins) on the streets of Dublin.
And given that The Whale is always in search of new sensations to go alongside all the old favourites on offer, naturally, Bollywood is now coming to Greystones.
Teaming up with the rather tasty Daata just around the corner, you can enjoy the full Paddy Goes To Bollywood experience on Thursday, October 4th. Start your evening at 7pm with a specially-created Daata menu – with Lamb & Spinach, Tikka Masala, Daata Traditional Curry, and beyond – followed by Once There Was A Tiger up on the big screen, where it belongs, at 9pm in The Whale. Where a free large box of freshly-popped and hot-buttered popcorn awaits, alongside a full bar and luxurious surround sound. Just the way Salman Khan would want it.
All this for just €30. Or, if you’re not quite up for some delicious, award-winning Indian cuisine with your Bollywood night, there are a limited number of €10 tickets to just catch Ek Tha Tiger.
Either way, get ready to be dazzled, and dazed, and danced off your feet.
