Bunty & Babli

Oh, blessed be. Jeremy and I found another movie theater that shows Bollywood films, and this one is right in our backyard! The Mann Hopkins theater was showing Bunty and Babli over Memorial Weekend. So, after a relaxing few days up on Lake Superior, we hustled home on Monday in time to catch the 6pm show. Totally worth the $8, and much to Jeremy's pleasure, they were selling Samosas at the popcorn stand.

I think Bunty and Babli may be my favorite Bollywood movie thus far, topping Lagaan, Asoka, Akele Hum Akele Tum, and Bewafaa. It was funny, touching and had a helluva soundtrack with the perfect number of over-the-top dance sequences and a mind-numbing array of costume changes.

Viva Bollywood! Viva Bunty and Babli!

isn't it Baliwood?

Nope, it's Bollywood.

"The word Bollywood was created by blending Bombay (the city now officially called Mumbai) and Hollywood, the center of the United States film industry."
