Who the f*** cares if our Bollywood bozos and the Indian multiplex owners are in a standoff over sharing the booty from the pathetic run of Hindi movies.
There are plenty of alternatives from Hollywood in the coming weeks, according to the print edition of the Sunday New York Times (May 3, 2009), which had a special 28-page section on the upcoming Summer Movies.

Folks, there’s an embarras de richesse coming your way from Hollywood (yeah, yeah, we know that not all the movies in the list are from Hollywood and some of them may even turn out to be unwatchable).
So, don’t shed any tears over the lack of any new Bollywood movies because of the multiplex strike in India. Au contraire, consider yourself blessed that you’ve been given a reprieve from the endless run of odious Bollywood trash.
