The beautiful Desi babe in the video above is why I love Bollywood, especially their musicals and romcoms. Or, at least, she and those like her in the Indian film industry are a large part of why I do so. The others being a life-long love of classic musicals – think anything starring Howard Keel – and a desire to maintain at least a tiny bit of my lingering fluency in Hindi. 😉
And no, it’s not a “guilty pleasure,” because I feel neither guilt nor shame for loving Bollywood musicals and romcoms. They are, insofar as I know, the last iteration of both the cinematic and musical genres created in far better, past days in America and the feature beautiful women who love, as opposed to hating, their feminine curves.
