Hello Ben !!
Welcome.. Bangalore had been my second home for almost 13 years.. Suggest you get in touch with the BangBW flickr group ( http://www.flickr.com/groups/bangbw/ ) members - they are an active bunch of film shooters who go out regularly on shoots over the weekends and other holidays..
I'm from Karnataka myself (not Bangalore though).
You might want to try G K Vale. They'll at least have some color film.
For B/W, try Amazon. They've just recently launched in India and I've seen some B/W available on the site, though a bit on the expensive side.
Maybe this will help:
Cool ! Thanks a lot for that info ! By any chance you know a place that sells B&W film ? It seems quite hard to find here, the most common film is just ISO 100 color from Kodak. It's nice but doesn't offer much variation I think ^^. I bought 5 rolls of that 100 ISO kodak color plus film. Do you think I can use it at night too ? I took some night shots but I don't know how they will turn out.

I have maybe found a Foto Circle with some B&W but the guy still didn't send me the quotes of what he has. Do you think I should negotiate the price down for expired film ? I'm interested by it cause it can turn out cool but I also won't mind saving film that store out of the fridge and stuff lol.

Ben - you can try RK Photoguide near Majestic bus stop.. They should be having B&W films.. Otherwise these days it is best to source films from other metros [mainly Mumbai / Delhi] or abroad.. In the flickr group I mentioned, we join hands and order films in bulk.. the moderator of the group [Sabir Ahmed] currently has some Fuji Acros 100 in 135 and 120 sourced a month back.. try out and enjoy ..
