Certified B, Prasad Naik (logo: Ajoy Advani, photographs to follow throughout the festival)
Curated by Ajoy Advani
Certified B raises the curtain on cinema theatres established in the early 20th century. Though decrepit and rundown, these small, single-screen theatres have had quite a glorious run. Today, they still entertain vagrants, truck drivers and the city’s perverts by screening semi-porn, Bhojpuri movies or old Hindi films spliced with vulgarity. Photographer Prasad Naik captures these shady cinema halls of South Mumbai in an exclusive series of photographs. It’s your chance to get a voyeuristic peek inside these theatres before it is The End.
