I think I have been infected by [livejournal.com profile] filmi_girl's 'song of the day' posts (btw, if you love Bollywood, check out her LJ).

But I couldn't resist posting this. This is Rishi Kapoor from Laila Majnu, a movie I am dying to get my hands on, as I am interested how he plays the intense star-crossed lover as he usually played sweet, light-hearted guys.

I've been on a bit of Rishi kick since Bobby (OMG, so adorable!!! I want to be like that batty auntie and pinch his cheeks. If I were a teenage girl, I'd probably crush on him, but I am a little too old to crush on an 18 year old :P) But anyway, here is my more shameful and secret reason why I want this:

I don't normally apply the words 'smoking hot' to Rishi. Adorable, or super adorable, or irresistably cute. Yes. Hot? No. But here? HOT.

Yes, I am that shallow.

(Plus, the angstorama that is the Laila Majnu story always appealed to me).



ETA: It is Kim Sam Soon that won. I'll be taking it with me to Thanksgiving.

Today's clip-of-adorableness is courtesy of the Bollywood classic Bobby.

Bobby, a huge and very influential Bollywood hit of the early 1970s (I think most of the 'young love' story movies are indebted to Bobby some way or another), follows a rather simple but effective story. Raj (Rishi Kapoor), the only child of neglectful, rich parents (seriously, they are dreadful) falls in love with Bobby (Dimple Kapadia) the warm and vivacious daughter of a poor fisherman. But young sweet love might have no chance against society and parental disapproval.

One of the things I love is that it reminds me of American teen movies from 1950s, and another is that, unlike a lot of movies nowadays, actors playing teenagers are very young: Rishi is 17 and Dimple 15. And they are adorable together (they both became huge stars as a result). And the 1970s fashions are much too fun.

Anyway, here is the clip. Raj and Bobby are waltzing together for the first time, at the same time their fathers are deciding their children are never to be allowed together.
