Mangal Pandey

    2 July 2006, early evening

The Art Gallery of Ontario did a little Amir Khan festival of sorts last week. They showed four of his films. Carvill, Mezan and I went to see Mangal Pandey, a fictionalised account of the Sepoy Mutiny. The movie is a bit like an Indian Braveheart. The film was quite good. Amir Khan’s film are usually a step up from your typical Bollywood flick, so I was expecting a good movie. One thing of particular note was the racy little girl on girl dance number in the later half of the film. That came out of nowhere. Meow.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
