Shahrukh Khan and his 16 girls... Chak de India (Yash Raj Films)

Forget that Labor Day tradition of heading to the beach to celebrate the three-day weekend and summer's end. Avoid the crowds and the heat by heading to an air-conditioned theater and checking out the latest Mumbai noir gangster film by Indias Ram Gopal Varma. Varmas Ki Aag is part of an ongoing series put on by the local organization Goldspirit Films . For Labor Day weekend they will be screening a quartet of Bollywood films at the Ultrastar Del Mar Theater beginning with Chak de India (Hindi) on Friday August 31; continuing with Yamadonga (Telugu) and Heyy Babyy (Hindi) on Sunday; and concluding with Varma's Ki Aag (Hindi) on Monday.
