Awesome or awful? Do Anjaane

It's a fine line, really, especially when you're looking at the 1970s.








This finery brought to you by an entire costume and wardrobe department: Bhanu Athaiya (who according to imdb is the first Indian to win an Oscar - for costume design in Gandhi - and was also involved in Lagaan and Swades, among many others) , Shankar Jadhav, Vasant Mahajan, and Mani Rabadi.

Also, take a close look at these sunglasses.


Neat, huh? Prem Chopra and the Big B in 1976? Or Aishwarya and Baby B in 2007? Who can tell?!?

lol! I'm loving the modern day tie-in with Aish and Baby B!

As for whether or not that was bad fashion, I'll have to ask my dad but I have a feeling that tuxedo ensemble was big pimpin back in the day!

actually, I don't mind the costumes NEARLY as much as I mind the shaggy beard - it hides too much of his face! I like his goatee much better.

imdb? such an umreliable source. this is a very bad blog for people who want to crap about the indian film industry.
1970s in hollywood gets more worse than this.
aish and abhi actaully look really really cute. i don't know what you're talking about.

Lisa, I didn't say anything about Aishwarya and Abhishek other than that their sunglasses remind me of the ones in the movie. I like the picture, actually.

As for Hollywood, sure, people around the world wore clothes in the 70s that we now think of as unattractive. I never said they didn't.

I'm ok with the costumes because I think they were in-keeping with fashion back in the day. What makes me giggle are the subtitles ...

Refering to picture five, I wondered what had happened to Grandma's old table cloth.

I like Amitabh Bachan and Rekha better than Abishek and Aish...Rekha is 10 times hotter than Aish and Abishek looks like a fuckin douchebag- he is so geeky ew
