Dolce and Namak

Ok, I know this is going to be totally silly but my first reaction on seeing the shoes was not "they're so tiny" (that was actually my second reaction), it was: "hey, they're brown!!". For some reason in my head the props should have been in black and white too, or variations of grey :D

And squee for capturing these for posterity, I am so lazy with pictures, so it's good to know I can find it all here after the exhibition is done :)


I had seen them last week when they finally had them there for the event on Sunday, but I didn't have my camera with me -- made a point of bringing it with me yesterday, cos I knew I'd kick myself if I didn't take some photos.

I wasn't surprised at the colour only because they had read as "darker" to me in the B&W. Of course, you know I'm disappointed they had neither his tramp sweater, nor Rishi's scarf from Bobby. :-)


From way up here at the top end of the world, where such treasures will never come, THANK YOU for these great photos.
Like Dolce_and_Namak, I'd mentally pictured black shoes too. Could you see any actual evidence of their country of origin? :)


Nope, they are pretty well worn and because they're all scrunched like that there's no way to see if there's still a label or something inside. We shall have to take the song's word that they come from Japan.



Thanks for sharing these pictures, it's pretty amazing that any film props from that era are still around! We can only hope that a future IIFA-related exhibit will feature Rishi's sweaters (even if they are shrunken and moth-eaten at this point.)


You know, Liz, I have the distinct impression that the Kapoors are sitting on a gold mine of memorabilia and records and props, and the thought of it makes the archives student in me salivate. At the event I went to last Sunday, Randhir spoke about going back through the records to try to figure out why Barsaat (I think it was Barsaat) had been given an A certificate, so I'm guessing they have a whole lot of stuff that would make for an excellent exhibit. And likely quite a few books.


I know you warned me but THE CLOWN!

Seriously though - so jealous of your IIFA experience! (and did not expect the shoes to be that colour).


Hahaha - I will confess, the clown managed to creep me out just a little, too, and I don't even have a thing about clowns.


Wow thanks for those great photos, I've always wondered about all those props and costumes we see in movie, but its great to see some of them have been kept and I've makde some contributions to kapoor khanzana which I've linked below



@bollywooddeewana Thanks! I've added them into the list of links!
