    1. no, not yet, and missed it when In India in April (tho it was on at the over crowded Calcutta Film Fest I think). The last of his films, which I hace watched since seeing Bombay Our City on release, was Jai Bhim Comrade. Hugely important and his best so far (unless Divek is better). Jai Bhim is online, but without subs.
