Like real life, it all goes downhill after prom. As is no doubt clear from everything I write here, I prefer to dwell on the comedy and romance elements of the Bollywood mix, and most of that was lost after the very fabulous 50s-inspired prom, except for the slightly steamy "we can sit on my bed and clean your wounds while I accidentally-on-purpose put my face a few millimeters from yours becuase you're not really my student" scene between Ram and Chandni, which, by the way, Sushmita, seems like a very effective move. Will just file that away for later use, in case I am ever in love with an undercover army wing commander. The helicoper thing was just silly - why didn't it fly closer to the roof in the first place, so young Lucky didn't have to almost get his arm yanked out of its socket in order to save Ram as he jumped off the roof?
Big bonus points to whomever came up with that bit about the brothers fiddling with their hair in the same way. And with Chandni's color-coordinated sari and notebook ensembles. My inner seventh-grader is sooo jealous.
So it's 1:19 on a Saturady morning and I am still up, doing this, when I should have gone to bed over an hour ago becuase I have to get up by 9:00. What is wrong with me? I need my strength for tomorrow - I'm watching Sholay for the first time! And showing some BW film of my choosing, yet to be determined, to my boss, who has only seen Bride and Prejudice and Kandukondain Kandukondain, both at my prompting. She loved them. I told her about Main Hoon Na but I think that two nights in a row would be too much.... Suggestions?
