A taste of Bollywood

I think I've posted this here before, but it is worth repeating.  You may want to turn on the captions.


  1. I have this film, "Dil Se" [From the Heart] (1998), in my film collection. The weird thing, for people unused to the conventions of Indian cinema, is that it's a hard-hitting, politically sophisticated thriller about terrorism! Picture a remake of Ridley Scott's "Body of Lies", with Leo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe singing and dancing their way through their assignment.

    You have to wait till the end to get the full incongruity, don't you? As a railway geek, though, I'm afraid my first reaction was that either they lost a lot of people in practising that or else that is the stablest and smoothest train in the history of railways. But if it's green-screen or similar it's very cleverly edited.
