I rarely get excited about Hollywood movies any more. Bollywood ones though? Oh yeah, baby. I really need to make a post about all the Bolly movies I am excited about in 2007 because there are a LOT. But this post is not about that.

This post? Total eye candy. I bring you stills from my newest obsession, a Rajastani Shakesperean tale about family betrayal, love and murder. A.k.a. Eklavya.

No spoilers, unless you consider the fact that Saif Ali Khan is smoking hot a spoiler of some sort.

Saif Ali Khan as Prince Harsh. Just the way [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie likes 'em: intense, tortured, and hot. Side note: I was very amused to see Saif play a royal. Do you think he went Method? :D Let's hope his real family is a lot less dysfunctional. Seriously, the fact that the guy is a RL prince shall never cease to amuse me.

I am behind on my flist and replies but will get to it ASAP.

OK, I am tired and about to take a nap, so all I'll say for now is...

DAMN.

Eklavya.

Saif, stop spoiling me with such awesome movies.

It would take a hell of a year to knock this out of my Top 5 for 2007.

The Plot: In a crumbling old town in Rajastan (?) sits a Raja in name only, a puppet in the present day, trapped in a mental time warp. He is played by Boman Irani (in an amazing performance). When his wife (played by the awesome Sharmila Tagore) dies, their only son, Harsh (Saif Ali Khan) who escaped to London years ago comes back for the funeral, only to discover a family twisted: his uncle and cousin, played with envious malice by Jackie Shroff and Jimmy Shergill are circling around the creepy, unstable Raja, his twin sister Nandini (Rimi Sen, awesome in her small role) is mentally handicapped. There are murder attempts, screwed-up family dynamics, a debate about the definition of one's dharma, and potential for love and hope with the luminous Rajjo (Vidya Balan), a chauffeur's daughter who has loved Harsh for a long time. But everything is tied around the secrets swirling around Eklavya (Amitabh Bachchan, in his best role in years), the Raja's fanatically devoted bodyguard.

And you know what? I lied after all. I really want to talk about Eklavya. Which is just...Shakespeare goes Rajastan.

[livejournal.com profile] fivil, there isn't as much Saif/Vidya as there was in e.g. Parineeta, but it's integral to the story, and you know what? The movie was so awesome, I didn't mind.

Lengthy and spoilery )

The movie I am most looking forward to in the next couple of months is not a Hollywood one. Nor is it an Asian one *gasp*



What is it? It is the Bollywood movie Eklavya, starring Saif Ali Khan, Vidya Balan and Amitabh Bachchan. By the same people (and with a lot of the same actors) who made my favorite Bollywood movie of 2005, Parineeta. And the couple in that one, Saif/Vidya, are also a couple in this one, and I am in heaven.

Summary as taken from IMDB )

More yummy stills under the cut )
