Okay, this isn't about LDS movies, but I thought it would be the most appropriate place for it. Are any of you out there Bollywood fans? I have recently discoverd it, and to my surprise, I am hooked. I say "surprise" because I have never been interested in Indian culture whatsoever, and so to find myself enjoying these is really a change.
One of the things I find fascinating is that while Bollywood movies are always in Hindi, every ten or sentences, they will suddenly start talking in English--but only a few words. Then they revert back to Hindi. At first it really confused me, because I kept expecting there to be a reason for the shift, but there never was on. I finally looked it up on Wiki, and that's just a common thing they do.
Another thing, and I think this is true for all Indian movies (not just Bollywood), is that they never kiss, so they will do other interesting things in its place, sometimes things that are more risque than actual kissing.
There's a certain naivete' in the movies, a sort of innocence, that I actually find a bit refreshing. I'm not one to be put off at all by sexuality in movies, but it's interesting how I got used to knowing I wasn't going to be surprised by anything like that. I sort of feel like I'm watching a Disney movie.
I also love how they combine modern dress with traditional. Like I said, I've never been attracted to Indian culture before, and that included the women's dress. But after having watched the movies numerous times, I find their dress to be stunning. The colors are so vibrant, and the style is very flattering to the (thin) female form.
Some of the movies I've watched:
Kuch Naa Kaho
Bride and Prejudice (a very fun Indian take on Pride and Prejudice, all in English)
Failing to fetch me at first, keep encouraged.
Missing me one place, search another.
I stop somewhere waiting for you.
