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? :)

katherine

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.)

katherine

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).

katherine

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.
