Russian be gone! xD I’ve spent the last week watching Bollywood films!
First official Indian films with musicals, excluding A Wednesday (which didn’t have musical numbers, but does starÂ Anupam Kher), Slumdog Millionair (which isn’t officially Indian), and some random Punjab film that I caught once when I was living in Vancouver and randomly watched the Punjabi channel. LOL
First thoughts? I’m loving it. It cost me a bit to get accustomed to the 3hr running time of most films, but I think I don’t care… that much any longer. Fluff musical numbers are still fluffs, and that’s what irks me the most… but at least they’re good for exercising.
It’s been my first week and I’ve already seen a couple of few Shahrukh Khan films, and I’ve already learned Kajol andÂ Rani Mukerji’s names. Already reviewedÂ Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, and this is my second time watching Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. I think I took to the song because it’s one of the few that I can actually pronounce. LOL
I love the complicated melodrama they get into. I can totally get why people in Peru are into Bollywood films and numbers.
