religious comedy

Religion has actually convinced people…that there’s an invisible man, living in the sky, who watches everything you do, every minute of every day.  And the invisibly man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things he has a special place full of fire, and smoke and burning and torture, and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and scream and cry forever and ever, til the end of time. But he loves you.

Enter Dante into the Inferno…

Dante is allowed to make his amazing journey through hell because of how much Beatrice, Dante’s beloved who is now in heaven, loves him.

She left heaven because of her love for Dante,

to tell Virgil to guide Dante through hell.

And as Dante traverses through hell

He is continually motivated to continue his frightening journey by some form of love

I have never watched a South Indian movie before what should I watch first?

well i can only really account for malayalam movies so:

BANGALORE DAYS. bangalore days. B A N G A L O R E  D A Y S. 

but also if you like

if you know me you know that all those titles are links WITH SUBS. so click away buddy

i like to suggest bangalore days as a good start because it has a little bit of everything (almost) :)

there’s also my other malayalam/and other cinema rec lists- and the *needs to be updated* master list link is here 
(also if you feel like a crash course in crappy presentation form this is my indian cinema thing, and my specifically malayalam cinema thing)

personally i think manam and magadheera are good starters in telugu. here’s a list with subs by arjunskapoor. some more from tollywoodfever
i have friends whose first south film was ok kanmani in tamil, which they liked. here’s a rec list for tamil that’s been categorised by forestpenguin, also ask @adiyaathi.

south-indian-spice is a great go to for recs that cover most of south india and i’m sure the lovely show runner of the blog will be happy to help you with any other recs (kannada maybe? i’m sorry i can’t give you much info on that i haven’t seen enough)
and WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF SOUTH INDIAN CINEMA. I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR STAY. I KNOW YOU WILL :)
