Zeus and Jess and I spent a chunk of the pre-fiery coffee table New Year's Eve trying to explain why Bollywood is so great to D. I'm thinking I can ease him in with an English-speaking faux-Bollywood flick - "Bride and Prejudice."
(It doesn't hurt that Aishwarya Rai is so intensely gorgeous.)
What's not to love about epic films in which people break out into extravagant song-and-dance sequences every 10 minutes? For the guys who scoff at such a notion, may I present you with Exhibit A?
Beyond just flashes of color and dance, films like "Devdas" are thought-provoking and beautiful. This is actually my favorite Bollywood movie - it's so passionate and tragic.
