good ol masala movies!!!

i got a few cds of hindi movies from a friend of mine and finally sat down to watch them with my dad tonite at dinner. we picked namak halaal and i was surprised at how much the gaudy, bauble-laden sets, jhingchak dances and outlandish outfits still entertain.

it was good fun! the movie is replete with ma ki mamta, marey hua baap ki baapta, naye pyaar ki mithi si jalan, ek kutta-kamina villian and jigar se bhi pyaar dost!!! and topped off with pagey ghungroo bandh! hai!!!

a young amitabh bachchan, a sultry(??) smita patil, a sulky ranjit and a weepy but dignified waheeda rehman. and add to it the bholapan of om prakash as “daddu”. full paisa vasool.
