I watched another Bollywood film today, the scifi adventure Endhiran. Starring Rajnikanth & Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, S. Shankar's over the top tale of an android's love for his creator's fiance has the full Bollywood shebang. Romance,  action, science fiction, cgi effects, and a fair amount of dance numbers featuring outrageous costumes and even a trip to what appears to be Macchu Picchu...

It seems there is an entire idiom I have yet to fully understand when it comes to these films, where the potential for sexual activity almost always involves a trip to dance fantasy land, and where genre is no barrier to plot development.

I might spend quite a bit of blog every day of june commenting on my initial forays into the fascinating cinema phenomenon that is Bollywood.
