Since I'm home sick today, I thought I'd put my time in between naps to good use.
I'm working on an informal "Intro to Bollywood" YouTube-type video for an acquaintance. Basically, I'm trying to whittle down my list of necessary Bollywood elements...the rules if you will. All commercial films follow some sort of rule system as far as story elements are concerned.
Sooo, here's my top 3. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.
- There is always a love story. Always. (I especially like it when people find time for love in the middle of a terrorist subplot. That warms my heart.)
- Grown men cry...and dance! (Korean actors have the crying part down but most of them can't dance a lick.)
- There will be
bloodsinging and EVERYONE will lipsynch. (If you know of an actor/actress that sings their own stuff. Please do let me know!)
