When I started bringing home Bollywood dvd’s from the public library several weeks ago, the young miss mostly turned her nose up at watching movies with subtitles. We watched Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge last night. “That was the best Indian movie yet,” she said, before going to bed.
Maybe it was because she got to stay up a bit past bedtime.
So far my favorite has been Lagaan, set during the British occupation late 19th century.
I don’t know why I find these movies so appealing. The music and dance sequences that pop out of nowhere are just insanely fun. I’ve gotten used to timber in women’s singing voices. The tunes are quite catchy.
Any favorites out there among my readers? Are there any good Hindi science fiction films?
