When I was down at Artesia I bought a copy of Fanaa,* a film which I am astonished to find myself not hooked by at all. Which is strange given my mad love for Aamir Khan. It's got some good moments, but overall I don't know, I just don't think it hangs together despite some good scenes. Given that I am typing this as I watch the ending it doesn't really speak for it grabbing me.

Also what is it with Bollywood and blind heroines who get their sight back through the magic of science?

But on the positive side, the more I think of Kabhi Alvida naa Kehna, the more I love it with a mad love that knows no boundaries. Well, maybe not no boundaries, but certainly very few ones. If only it wasn't so much of a haul to get to Artesia I'd certainly be seeing it again.


*For anyone who cares, this is a film about a terrorist who romances an innocent girl, then leaves her, bumps into her in the mountains, gets back with her while being chased by the Indian army, etc. It stars the great and wonderful Aamir Khan as the terrorist and Kajol, as the formerly blind girl he romances and betrays. Compared to many Bollywood plots this is pretty straightforward and restrained.
