I loved the Shashitabh in the above pics, the quote "Kaunsa number, nau nahi chae!" (what number is it? Nine or six?) has become a perennial insult and threat in my household!
First I wanna thanks Jennifer Kendall for designing Shashi's clothes to be the most leathery and the most tight trousers ever, I think he might of suffered from Vinod Khanna-squeezes-butt-into-trousers syndromes all the more for me to weeeeeee!!
Rum - you are so on the money it is like we shared a brain for just a moment. What a daft idea for a lair! How much pleather can there be in any one filmi wardrobe? Shashitabh..Rekha in a not scary avatar...
Beth I can't wait to read your review :)
It is a fine fine film though, look forward to your review :-)
Rum - It is truly campy and excellent. That is a great threat! I will be posting many images of the shoe sequences. Ah Jennifer, bless her, she sure knew how to dress her husband. Though perhaps his cop shirt is a bit tight in an unflattering way?
Temple - :) Me too! As for pleather, I think we should launch an official investigation to find the pleather-iest film in existence. I always joke about that song in the club in Dil Chahta Hai as being the pleather parade, but I'm sure that's just the tip of the iceberg. As for Shashi's pants, I think they could be tighter. "Could," not "should," mind you.
PS Email me sometime about living in Melbourne! I'm so jealous! I love it there!
Memsaab - That is exactly how I feel!
But ya Suhaag is masala-madness personified and sooooo much fun that it would be a pity to stop and think about it!
PS: Watched Krodhi yesterday night. You should totally check out. Its Subhash Ghai+Dharmendra+Shashi Kapoor+masala-madness=great fun! :-)
MY FAVORITE MASALA MOVIE EVAAAAARRRRRR!!!!!
Post soon, before I implode!
I think Amitabh did much for the pleather industry (that sounds so smutty) in his angry masala years. But your question has got me thinking. SRK is probably current day pleather poster boy. KJo has a lot to answer for.
As to Melbourne - well today we are freezing under rain, hail and blue skies in swift changes, and it is almost official summer. Melbourne!
Enough chit chat - go finish your review (and tell me whether you think having the evil villain disguise-y ticket booth located in your house defeats the purpose of disguising your face)
