I got some fun promo pictures for Double Dhamaal, which promises to be a nonsensical bad-taste comedy of the best kind.
Why do I like these low brow films so much?
I think they provide a release from the buttoned-up lifestyle we're forced to live everyday. We wear sensible clothes to work and try to eat healthy and get exercise and be good, responsible citizens. Low brow films provide an escape-valve on all the pressures of life.
I can't wear a glittery mini-dress to work but it's fun to watch Mallika Sherawat slink around in one. I have to be mature at work and can't laugh when somebody farts but an exaggerated comedy fart in a film is fair game. I know perfectly well that glitzy, tacky, sound-effect filled wackadoodle comedy films aren't great cinema but they do have a fond place in my media diet. After eating vegetables all week, don't I deserve an ice cream sundae? With a cherry on top? And sparklers? And announced with a sound effect that says Dhamaaaal every time I take a bite?
A couple pictures and the trailer after the cut!
