yes. yes. yes. as for missing someone...what about....Raj's papa? Prithviraj I think? He was in Mughal-E-Azam?


Well, duh, the obvious one, of course! Yes, he was in Mughal-E-Azam. Alas, I have the colourized version of that only, too bad TIFF didn't think to do a broader retrospective and include the original of MEA as well, that would have been a kick to see on the big screen.


Also Babita and Rajiv! I would love to see some Prithviraj films - the only one I can ever find easily is the crap colorized Mughal-E-Azam, but surely there must be other things we can get our hands on. I am SO IN, obviously. But might beg for July or August so that I am not traveling during a chunk of it :)


Do what you can, Beth :-) -- I do think it's a good idea to have it hit at the same time TIFF is doing a retrospective. I kind of see it as the sum of the parts, quite a few people have said they could do one or two films, but once you mass a bunch of links in Delicious, it's really cool.

Anandini Sekhar

Yes, yes, yes!!! I will finally have an excuse to watch Chimpoo Kapoor's Ram Teri Ganga Maili to figure out if he really was as bad as I remember!


This is just going to be so much FUN!

Dolce and Namak

I'm all in for this!! :) I'm a sucker for both Kareena and Ranbir and I know at least one of them is not too well loved in the blogosphere, so I'd be delighted to give her some love :) And him, of course :)


Ohh YES! I've been looking for an excuse to write up all the Raj Kapoor films I covered for my first film essay! This is gonna be wicked!


@Dolce You know, I think it was the Twitter discussion the other night, with the wish that TIFF had gone a little broader, that put this bug in my ear. I started thinking, man, if you just looked at the Kapoor clan, surely, that starts ripples spreading outwards, and there's got to be at least one Kapoor for everyone out there, somewhere.

I think you'll find a little Kareena love here, too.


Count me in :)


@Rum @Lilibel Super! Welcome aboard! We've now reached such a wonderful critical mass that it's going to be a great learning experience for me!


I have "vijeta" produced by Sashi kapoor starring his son Kunal Kapoor as the lead hero in my "to watch" pile. I can do a write up on the lesser known kapoors! However I do not have a blog of my own. Pls let me know if u want to post my write up on this kapoor and vijeta, i will send my write up.

Incidentally, Sashi's second son Karan (totally western looks inherited from his mom's side) also acted in one hindi movie "sultanat" which was also Juhi Chawla's debut movie.

Another piece of trivia, Sashi's daughter Sanjana Kapoor also acted in a hindi movie with Nasirrudin Shah who is a taxi driver in the movie. I have seen a song clip on a song DVD - can't recollect the name though - some thing to do with pyarelal!


Oh, @filmibuff, I know of a few people who would love to see that written up. Sure it's not time to *start* a blog?

But if you would like to write it up and send it to me (email is in the sidebar), I would gladly post it here with due credit to you.


I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog. But am worried that work commitments plus my own evening yoga/ aqua fitness and daily walking routines may not give me much time to do regular posts. I think readers like to read something new atleast once a week.

Anyway, I will keep "June" in my mind for a write up on Vijetha with some intro on the lesser known kapoors. BTW, I think Beth has already reviewed Vijeta on her blog. I will be reading it after I see the movie which is my usual preference (to avoid spoilers for myself!)
