Bollywood & its colours!

Bollywood has a lot of strange colours. Different people, different roles, people playing roles of extremely different & totally imaginary personalities and so on. They have lives of their own, they are real people after all, different emotions also strike their lives and I wonder how they ‘act’ when they have to portray emotions while facing with entirely opposite emotions in their real lives. But there of course would be times when they would be having great times in their personal lives and probably that shown on screen too in their acting. And this is the time they probably also look their best on screen.

Something like people have photographic memory, I have videographic memory, things get recorded in my brain and I am named PVR (personal video recorder) by a friend of mine. Well I have a good RAM too to be able to pull up these recordings fast when required from my hard disc :-)

Here is what I kind of captured some moments like these with my videographic memory, relevant to the discussion about stars looking their best:

1. Rishi Kapoor in Saagar, 1985
2. Sridevi the best ever in Chandini, 1989 [the music of this movie was amazing especially the songs ‘parbat se kaali ghata takraayi....’ and ‘lagi aaj sawan ki phir wo jhadi hai...’
3. Amitabh Bachchan in Hum, 1991 (well I like in Satte Pe Satta, 1982 too, the polished version of course and mainly in the song ‘Dilbar mere kab tak mujhe aise hi tadpaaoge...’
4. Shahrukh Khan in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayengey, 1995
5. Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, 1998
6. Sanjay Dutt in Haseena Maan Jaayegi, 1999
7. Ajay Devgan in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, 1999
8. Hrithik Roshan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, 2001
9. Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Na, 2004
10. John Abraham in New York, 2009

By the way, something else very interesting that I have captured through my videographic memory, Chandini was released in 1989, but it had some background music which was a song in Lamhe which was released in 1991. [Both these movies were directed by Yash Chopra]

Lakshya was released in 2004, but it had some background music which was a song in Rock On which was released in 2008. [Both these movies were directed by Farhan Akhtar]

I love that song and music in Lakshya. In fact, it is available on youtube as the Ascent Lakshya.

Also Amittabh looked fab in Dilbar mere...!!!
