The Hindi version of Amba
in the neighbourhood, Milan frequently changes its movies to patronize all types of crowds. With the hall not being far from the vegetable market, don't be surprised if you see a few vendors walk in with their wares. Hell, you might even get a good bargain if the movie makes him happy. Situated in a quintessentially working-class marketplace neighbourhood on the way from Masab Tank to Mehdipatnam, Milan hosts primarily the gutkha-chewing crowds of the area who appear to be able to catch a 3-hour film at any time of the week.
The theater is a sea of black during the day, with lots of burqa-clad ladies walking in to relax after all the chores are over. Ramzan is a good time to visit, with the after-Iftar shows being colorful and vibrant. The downer about Milan is its extremely uncooperative staff. A hangover of the Nizam-era, we suppose.
Although the tickets might cost lesser than at other theaters, the parking charges and the snack-stand costs are on par with other fleecers... er, theaters. The theater itself is not exactly a pretty sight to look at, and it sets standards in the uncomfortable department.
On the whole, a time-pass theater for time-pass movies.
