Austin Powers got nothin' on this!

Kush Tandon sent me some links to a few wacky old school filmi segments earlier this week.

Below is the most fugtacular of them all.
(Don't let the rhythmic panting or floor sliding distract you.)


[From Apna Desh (1972)]

Check out another 70's highlight: bong smoking hippies who naturally, also sing.

Rajesh Khanna was "the man" in his day. His slide came with Big B emerging, and he marrying Dimple Kapadia (His female base then moved on).

In 70s, while he was still a sueprstar he went super fugly.

Hello, i really *really* enjoy your blog.

But i have to tell you: if this http://youtube.com/watch?v=yQLQxW088x4 is not the epitome of disturbing bollywood fuglyness, i don't know what is. Especially from minute 1:25 onwards (leopard leotard hip thrusts) I hope you tear it to pieces one of these days >;D

Chapati, you read my mind. Kismat was so awful that I was really brief about it, but I did get in a few words about her pants. And as much as I would enjoy assigning more fug to Kismat, I don't think I could stand to put it back in teh DVD player.

Aww, no fair picking on "Dum maro dum" - it's seven kinds of awesome! :-)

Beth said...

Carla, I agree! "Dum Maro Dum" is holy!

Dum maro dum is gold.

I had sent her the clip for Dev Anand's collar, and to show how pretty Zeenat Aman was/ is that any costume worked for her. No matter.....

Well, just to clarify, it's totally okay to pick on *Dev Anand* in "Dum maro dum" - just not "Dum maro dum" generally. :-)

Oh, Zeenat was gorgeous in that film, wasn't she? So sad and lovely.
