Unexpected Pleasures

I have been watching a movie on TV that I found surprisingly interesting, given that I hadn't even considered watching it in the theatre - Jhoom Barabar Jhoom.

I didn't catch the entire movie as I was talking to the Guy intermittently, but I found much of what I watched immensely entertaining. I enjoyed the stunt with the wax Superman. I also loved Lara Dutta's character - a spunky and sexually experienced female character who doesn't die or repent at the end! I loved the scene where Preity Zinta's character tells a suitor that she has had sex 11 times, in order to scare him off, and he responds, "I've only done it four times... I'll be jealous of you." Delicious!

Edited to add: Oh, but the absolute best part was when Preity Zinta's character says she hates salwar kameez and the guy answers, "I hope you won't mind me wearing them!"

Our changing times. Humour reflects the times.

I approve :)

Indeed. That's exactly what I thought - it's progressive, for Bollywood.

I didn't care for the film when it was released. But I was watching bits of it yesterday too, and I agree with you, Lara Dutta's character is really cool. And so is Preity's for that matter, and their attitudes to sex.

Banno: Exactly how I felt.
