buying/processing film in India

Hi all,
Can anyone advise me where I can buy professional film in Mumbai or Bangalore? Is the price comparable to buying it off the net? And where is a good lab in those cities, or is it best to post home for development?

I was in Bangalore last Novembr and bought good quality film and had some rolls processed, which came out fine, not great, but good. I believe it was called Prabhu Studios on Brigade Rd, near MG Rd in a pretty popular shopping area. You have to enter through the alley, its upstairs.

They are the best in Mumbai for developing and printing. They are a bit more expensive but if you want the quality, they are the way to go.

Now as all the world is digital, are there any ingenious black-and-white printers left in India that know how to make fiber-base prints in exhibition quality?
