Besharam Aadmi Kaun Hai?

Now a lot of my writing on this blog quite simply an expression of how i feel about films, I don't regard myself as a film buff by any means but i guess I'm becoming quite the bollywood buff. I had qualms about writing this blog at first as i was a bit insecure about my writing style but imagine my surprise when i was watching one of my favourite bollywood based magazine shows 'Brits Bollywood' on Zing (formerly Zee Music) and hearing a direct quote from one of my film reviews on here recited word for word by one of the presenters. Here is the clip below

An here is the quote in question from the review of Himmatwala here

"Following the massive flop of Deedar-E-Yaar, this film did magic for Jeetendra's career and catapulted him into the high realms of bankable stars in 80's bollywood. Directed by K.Raghavendra Rao, Himmatwala (Bravery) was a remake of the directors Tollywood film 'Ooriki Monagadu', these southern type melodramas (mostly remakes of southern films) became a winning formula in 80's bollywood with Jeetendra starring in almost every single one of them alongside Sridevi & Jaya Prada, coupled with dialogues written by Kader Khan as well as folky disco type music from Bappi Lahiri. Himmatwala is a typical example of this genre of films that became blockbusters"



Thank you Brit's Bollywood, you've massaged my ego unknowingly and i have no plans to sue (how can i after all) but I'm very open for work offers, just contact me

Lots of Pyar, Ishq and Mohabbat ;)
