Another great actor gone fugly...

[Click any fugly photo to enlarge.]
I realize Indian came out in 1996, but I doubt these looks were completely acceptable even then. Kamal Hassan is a fabulous actor but he isn't exactly known for his dancing. So you can only imagine what these outfits looked like in motion. People ought not dress good actors so poorly.

Before we examine the abuse heaped upon Kamal, I would like some sort of explanation as to why these backup dancers look like Cats meets Miami Ink...











ENTER: Our Hero. Count Dracula anyone? Yes, this outfit comes complete with spooky dance moves.





All I can say to that is, "BOO."
















But then there's grandma's flowered shirt impeccably bow-tied at the waist to show off Milli Vanilli biker shorts complete with "Buh-buh-buh-buh-baby, don't forget my number" moves.




Yes, Kamal, we here at Bollywood Fugly are just as perplexed as you are about your co-star 's clip-on braided ponytail and the fur balls she's wearing as part of her bustier. No, those glasses aren't prescription...



Still, that's far less interesting than your grand finale--a space suit complete with space-ready canine and electrifying dance moves.
































[I think this was an attempt at "doing the robot" but they ended up with the "Tequilla" instead.]

Sacré bleu! Says who? You need to see "Sagara Sangamam", in which Kamal plays a classically trained dancer, and performs some absolutely amazing dance pieces.

Those outfits are fugly though. What is it with Indian heroes and tubelight outfits? First Bachchan and then Kamal.

All I can say is... wow

Wasn't there some movie with amrish puri where they roller skated around with yoda-sized red light sabers?

Haasan started his career as a choreographer. And in the early part of his career he was a very highly regarded dancer.

Is that a real dog? I sincerely hope not.

Okay, okay. I checked out Sagara Sangamam on YouTube. You guys are right. Kamal was a good dancer. That was over 10 years and 50 pounds before Indian!

I guess it's kind of how Marlon Brando looked hott in A Streetcar Named Desire (!) but had none of that by the time The Godfather rolled around.

glad to see you've recanted. kamal hassan is an awesome dancer. unfortunately, unless it's classical dance, my brethren down south are, with some exceptions, not too hot with the choreography. that, coupled with a generally disastrous sense of style, means that we almost always end up more fugly than bollywood. on the other hand, it's far more amusing to watch.

Hey amudha, Prabhu Deva was my first introduction to the South! I've since discovered he set the bar unnaturally high. Correction, he didn't even set the bar, he--like Michael Jackson, is from another planet.

If people know the "lyrics" of the song then you wouldnt say this. The first line is "akkadaaanu naanga udai poota" which means "if we dress up like we are crazy/or in a dontcare fashion". OK. This is the lyrics in the original tamil version i dont know what they did in hindi, but trust me it was supposed to look crazy without meaning, that was the goal

t-HYPE said...

Thank God that's the case Tamilian. See, this is just one more reason that they need to put subtitles on during the songs!
