Gangubai Kathiawadi15

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali | India | 2022 | 2h 34m | Hindi w/ English subtitles | Starring Alia Bhatt, Shantanu Maheshwari, Vijay Raaz, Seema Bhargava

A young woman is tricked by her boyfriend with the promise of a film career and is persuaded to leave the countryside for the big city. In Mumbai her dreams of becoming a movie star come crashing down when she is lured into the criminal underworld. A gutsy true-crime drama directed by acclaimed filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali (Devdas, Padmaavat).


‘Bhatt is terrific, tearing through the film, her performance gathering momentum, as respect, desire and a certain amount of fear flickers in the eyes of those around her.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘There is an entertainingly brazen quality to this movie, a brashness and recklessness to go with the mawkishness: it has a storytelling killer instinct.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
