Here’s a typical line from Bollywood film directors: this film has a bit of romance, some fighting, boy meets girl and they fall in love, you see, something quite unique.
Well in the last so many years, on the whole, there hasn’t been too much in the way of uniqueness. Bollywood just doesn’t seem bold and brave enough to change the angle a little. When was the last a Spaghetti Western Bollywood movie hit our screens? Are audiences no longer interested in a different genre of movie, just actors and actresses revealing almost all while neglecting their acting skills? I think it’s time for a shake-up and Bollywood directors need to look back at those classic horse-riding and gun slinging movies that wowed audiences up and down the world.Let me take this opportunity to mention three of my favourite Bollywood Spaghetti Westerns.
At Number 3 – Joshilay – mouth watering cast of Sunny Deol, Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Meenakshi Sheshadri
At Number 2 – Khuda Gawah – mouth watering cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi (in a dual role), Akkineni Nagarjuna, Shilpa Shirodkar and Danny Denzongpa
At Number 1 – Sholay – The Mother of all Bollywood Spaghetti Western movies. With a mouth watering and all powerful cast of Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Sanjeev Kumar, Jaya Bhaduri and Amjad Khan
Note: Not to worry, this blog is not turning into Bollywood, it’s just what order the ideas come flooding into my mind.
