I have always found AG Photographic to be really good for all things film, chemicals and paper. Ag Photographic. The Specialists for all traditional photo products.

Just out of curiosity. Being from Bangalore do you blow your brains out on shipping costs from the States or the EU? One option may be the Japan Camera Hunter ( looking at his website it appears that he's no longer selling film. He used to sell mystery bags which are kinda cool if your into that sort of thing (which I am).

Since I can no longer get it at all locally, I use eBay. Last 3 batches came from Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan... Sad, really.
Just make sure when using eBay that you check the sellers' feedback. I won't buy from anybody with many negatives.
There was a discussion about buying film from eBay a while ago. Someone there recommended Mailshots UK which is also supposed to be quite good. I haven't tried them yet.
Best of luck finding a reliable source!

They had the famous and wonderful AGFA MCC B&W photo paper reborn, made on the original AGFA machines operated by former AGFA engineers using the AGFA formulas! The same for the chemicals.
Now they are working on the AGFAPAN films!
Could anyone desires for more?

In Madrid I get most of my film from a local shop. Some things they don't have or are very expensive (Fuji pro colour films) so I get them through ebay (Film Festival) from Thailand, who ship worldwide and have decent prices.

When I visit the UK I put in an order to wherever's cheapest and get it sent to my parents' before I go. At the moment, for what I want, it looks like Mathers is the cheapest. Not much good to you in Bangalore though.
