マサラ・ミュージカル『オーム・シャンティ・オーム -恋する輪廻』・Masala Musical Om Shanti Om: Reincarnated For Love


(Poster from TakaWiki)

Despite not having written about “Bollywood” in some time, I still occasionally find myself thinking about the films. From time to time I may even pull out a DVD or watch a handful of clips on youtube. My tastes have not changed. I still love melodrama, ambitiously outrageous storytelling, character actors stealing scenes, slapstick comedy, strong moral values, and, above all, good music and dancing.


I still think there is no better dancer than Helen.




But Bollywood doesn’t really make those kinds of films anymore. The more Hollywood-ish films it does make aren’t really to my taste and so I drifted away.


Still, my tastes haven’t changed.


So, imagine my shock when I found out there is a theater company in Japan that takes all of the above, adds even more feathers and sparkles, and specializes in stories to make ladies swoon...


宝塚へようこそ!Welcome to Takarazuka.

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
