bollywood dreamin'

This is a bar in a slum neighborhood close to my house that I cut through everytime I go North. I haven't been in this place, but it is very unlikely that any Bollywood star has ever set foot in here! Posted by Picasa

well its hard to not see any here. honestly i'm not a big fan. now days they are trying to make more "hollywood" type films with less dancing/singing, but i think they are horrible! so far most directors here haven't been too original - they tend to outright copy western films (nine months, usual suspects, fight club, etc). there are a few bollywood crossover(indian/english) films i like - bride and prejudice, monsoon wedding, bend it like beckham.
the movies are fantastical to watch (the older style), but the plots are lacking quite a bit! i'm on the search for more independent/arty b-wood films - i know they must be here somewhere!
