Been listening to the Gangs of Wasseypur sdtrk on loop. Obviously, this is the best song from the film...

I saw the movie this thread is named after sort of recently. I was pretty mixed on it, but I guess I'm glad I saw it. Raj Kapoor's character and the ham-handedness of the screenplay threaten to sink the film, but the visuals have a real physical quality to them, which I think makes the musical numbers work especially well and also makes the film's message work on a more visceral level (even when the dialogue is spelling it out awkwardly).

You can look, but with love.

Speaking of Bhardwaj and goodlooking ladies, I saw Kaminey last night. Was it my fault that it took me more than an hour to realize Shahid Kapoor didn't have some unseen brother in the movie but plays twins, and was thus confused about the characterization of his "character" until I realized what was actually going on?

flieger, were you a ghostwriter for Shankar's I? The gym/workout and Mr. Tamil Nadu bodybuilding contest sequences in I are truly sublime.

I can't find pics or clips that do them justice. This will have to do:

The 3 hour cut has a better print (and was the source of all the screenshots bar the hand one), and would also have the virtue of a shorter middle act. Then again, you are missing 45 minutes of Kapoor.
As for char's opinion, it's probably tainted by her distaste for old-man-Kapoor's breast-fetish, or something like that.


i owe fliegie and rk the biggest apology. mera naam joker is everything. child seema just didnt understand sadly it seems.

i cant apologize enough for that. i do think that it's a film that requires one to be of a certain age but also and perhaps, more importantly, have some understanding of what raj kapoor means to indian cinema which I didn't necessarily have as a child despite his stature. he's also a really tough person to interview.. around the time i watched this, i also watched a lengthy interview with him where he talks about his work really frivolously and had much to say about his preferences when it comes to the female anatomy.. all of which really irked me as a child. but watching this film (and parts of sangam) almost back to back has me thinking this is yet another case of "don't listen to what the director says the film is about." the film also does necessitate making a leap of faith regarding what it is as an object etc.. after all, it IS a 3 hour movie about a grown up schlubby man committing to playing a circus clown.

(also at this point, rk had gone through famous and legendary heartbreak and rumored scandal and his public persona was understandably cagey. )

Ah, makes sense, thanks. I'll watch this soon. Pretty sure I have at least the "certain age" covered, haha.

I miss discussing movies with you. :(

I wish I knew enough to pick up on all of it, but it's suffused with nostalgia and movie-love, so I could hardly miss it! The story itself is perfectly suited for it, too. Mournful nostalgia has never been so fun. :)

And, yeah, loved the credits!
