Cuuuute!

I'm not sure I personally put much stock in firsts as a whole but I also have a hard time not remembering them or thinking about them. They stick in my head. You make a good point about the very deliberate firsts of Indian films, though - a launch is a very different thing than an accidental first (like whatever Dharmendra film _I_ happened to see first) (Sholay) or from a first that arrived quietly of someone who, shock!, actually worked their way up (like SRK).

I think I look at "firsts" as some kind of continuum -- an actual first film, a deliberate launch as a first film, a first film that actually turns out to be a hit with an audience and maybe makes everyone really sit up and take notice, the first film I watch of a particular actor. Basically, as I said, this is just a personal obsession, and doesn't mean much beyond that, my own personal interaction with a film. I'm not trying to expound some great theory here, just explain how I tend to interact with films.

I think your obsessions with firsts is a very valid and interesting avenue to explore. I like the point about there being all kinds of firsts.

It is interesting to see what a hero or heroine are launched as because yeah I bet if you are from a filmi family a lot of thought has to go into the image you want to project - not just to the audience but people who are going to be hiring you for future projects.

I didn't realise how all the young Deols were launched with new heroines as well.

I really like this idea and your exploration of it with the Deols... looking forward to the posts - I am especially looking forward to the one on 'Barsaat', as I've heard so many good things about it.

katherine

@nakhrewali I rather like the idea of debuting hero/heroine in the same film, the only more recent film I can think of that did that was Saawaariya, with Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor.

@DG Thanks -- I don't think I love Barsaat as much as I did the first time I watched it, but I do have a lot of good things to say about it.
