One of my favorite songs and song picturizations, which in a way encapsulates everything I love about Bollywood (music! romance! colors!) is Bol Na Halke Halke from Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Preity Zinta.



JBJ is a delight of a movie on its own, a tongue-in-cheek, post-modern riff on Bollywood about two strangers who while away time in a train station by telling each other how they met their significant other and realize they might like each other...What to do?



But BNHH is something else entirely: it's a mini-movie within a movie, and tells the fantasy of them meeting elsewhere and the romance that could have happened. It's beyond gorgeous and swoonily romantic. It could probably be entitled "Bollywood movie in 5 minutes". One of my favorite songs ever.



I went and capped it - because it's so beyond gorgeous.

One of my reasons for loving the Indian film industry known as Bollywood is the incredible music and musical numbers in their movies. And guess what? I discovered so many of them on youtube. So to share the wealth and maybe to interest people in checking some out, I bring you some of my finds.

My favorite ever Bollywood picturization. Kajol and Shahrukh Khan steam up the screen in 'Suraj Hua Maddam' from Kabhi Khushi Kabie Gham, a sprawling family epic. Shahrukh is the adopted eldest son of a very rich, traditional family. Kajol is the madcap daughter of a poor guy. Can we say 'forbidden?' I adore the movie (though the first half more than the second), not the least because it has a great soundtrack. At the beginning of this, he confessed his feelings.



The rest here )

This is Shahukh Khan heavy. I make no excuses. Not only is he my favorite actor, period, he usually has the best movies with the best production values. It pays to be the biggest Bollywood star.

Today's pic-spam are stills from Jaan-e-Mann, a Bollywood movie that opened last week, starring Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta. Yes, it's the love triangle so beloved of Bollywood. However, it's also apparently a bit of a tongue-in-cheek, phantasmagoric fantasy, with some surreal imagery thrown in. And huge points to Salman Khan, the wild child of Bollywood, to be so willing to poke fun at his persona and image. I was going to post it last week and had the images ready and everything, but then it slipped my mind. Oh well, better late than never.

Salman plays a narcissistic, immature, big-headed actor-wannabe failure, who, through a crazy twist of events, ends up helping the socially awkward Akshay Kumar woo his ex-wife (and the mother of his child!!!) played by Preity Zinta. And he grows up in the process, too. Mix in crazy hijinks and angst (mmmmm, crying Salman=HOT) and we get the movie in a nutshell.

I am planning to see this within the week, if it's still playing. Any takers? It doesn't look like any other Bolly movie so far, visually. And Preity and Salman always have rocking chemistry (this is their third movie together and I really hope they finally end up together in this one), and, if you are still not convinced? How can you not want to see the movie where someone can really put something like the following in his review "Anupam Kher is funny as the midget" and mean it. (Some IMDB reviewer). Come on!

My favorite still from the movie. Salman Khan and Preity Zinta:
