Today I went to see Laaga Chunari Mein Daag (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...). The movie was so incredibly entertaining for me. Yes, the whole thing is in Hindi sans sub-titles. but to be honest, it really didnt matter. Indian cinema is done in a style that American cinema abandoned a long time ago. Realisticness is really not the point. These are big, loud, super-duper melodramatic productions complete with singing, crying, dancing, heart-exploding love, torturous loss, climactic revenge. The movie was 3.5+ hours with an intermission. A true epic about two sisters in search of what it means to be a “modern Indian woman” (with a dive into a sup-plot reminiscent of Pretty Woman). I did have a little help from a friend sitting next to me, but by and large the whole thing was completely understandable without the words.

I am about to become quite obsessed with Bollywood.
