BOLLYWOOD: (Jaipur, India)

G, Z, N, & Me went to the movies, India's largest picture house, a veritable temple to Indian celebrity. Tonight's showing not only incited a very responsive audience to riotous laughter and cheering at the deftest innuendo, but also showcased a doppelganger for one of Bristol's own celebrities, Mikey Bower.

We are keen to acquire the film with English subtitles as we often had no idea what on earth was going on. Essentially, it was boy meets girl - girl likes another boy - boy seems to spend a lot of time goofing around with other boys for someone who wants to get girl and rues squandered opportunities for nookie - boy finally lands girl to scenes of birds tweeting in the trees….you know the story.

We were most entertained by the scenes with Jesus driving a van (see video clip). We were equally bemused by the 'spit pots' outside the auditorium, fancy ones in brass, for all those 'paan' (Indian chewing tobacco) spewing local folk, as we were by the film.
