lesbiassparrow: (love is never wrong)
[personal profile] lesbiassparrow
It's hard to describe this Bollywood film because it couldn't really decide what film it wanted to be; the genre changed about every five minutes. But that's not important. What is important is that because I couldn't quite believe it was as strangely and fascinatingly about the love of Bobby Deol's character for Arjun Rampal's as I remembered, I rewatched it. And lo! I bring you photographic evidence of their true love.



Photobucket
The story begins when Amisha Patel's character, Durga, a blind village girl, is imperilled. From this point she will spend most of the film crying or dancing. Sometimes she does both in an impressive bit of multi-tasking.

Photobucket
But she is saved by Rohit, who is just wandering by. He likes drippy women almost as much as he loves Raj, his first love.

Photobucket
For some reason there is a gangster who, of course, wants to marry Durga and thinks shooting people is the way to her affections.

Photobucket
No! Don't kill Rohit, Mr. Gangster! What will Raj do! Sadly, gangsters do not care for gay love. Poor Rohit.

Photobucket
There's some boring stuff with Durga getting her sight back and being adopted by a doctor. She cries a lot and tries to kill herself. The doctor takes her to Switzerland. As you do.

Photobucket
Here is Raj a gazillionaire who, the film assures me, also likes drippy women. But his eyes and actions say otherwise.

Photobucket
There's some more weeping by Durga.

Photobucket
Raj resolves to tell her of his tragedy

Photobucket
Behold, he says to Durga, here is the room of lost gay love

Photobucket
First he points to a giant picture of the two of them

Photobucket
Then to another that speaks volumes for their 'friendship.'

Photobucket
Finally, the piece-de-resistance: the moody one in blue

Photobucket
'Look!' he says 'I also have lost my true love! Marry me'

Photobucket
Let's have another look at that picture, shall we?

Photobucket
They sing of their love for Rohit and their plans to marry.

Photobucket
Because this is Switzerland a mad accordionist appears.

Photobucket
And some blondes in kerchiefs (seriously: this may the oddest Bollywood dance ever. And I've seen a lot of them)

Photobucket
They all go back to Raj's giant palace.

Photobucket
There is general rejoicing that Raj has finally brought a girl home

Photobucket
But just like that fellow Jesus Rohit rises from the dead. Or a six month coma. Look at him back with his one true love! Of course, because Durga was blind during their relationship she does not recognize him.

Photobucket
Rohit is not so happy at the wedding scenes for so many reasons. It's always awkward when your old girlfriend is marrying your first love.

Photobucket
There is emo sitting while lit by the moon

Photobucket
Finally, there is recognition of Rohit by Durga! He says she must marry Raj and he will go off and be a monk or something.

Photobucket
This, of course, calls for crafts. And weeping

Photobucket
Something tells me this wedding is not going to go so well.

Photobucket
Yes, not going so well

Photobucket
Rohit! What will you do? Can you see both your loves be married while all you get is monkishness?

Photobucket
Raj waves a gun around. He says it's because Durga's henna's scent is for Rohit but really it is because his first love betrayed him

And then, rather improbably, Durga and Rohit get married while Raj stands by weeping manly tears.

The end
