Pulchritude Overload

When I came across this video I thought of Meredith, who is a huge Bollywood fan. But whether you’ve ever seen a Hindi movie, or heard of any Bollywood superstars–or Lady Gaga, for that matter–have a look.  Some people are so beautiful they are born to be on screen.

The scenes are from Dhoom II.

  1. I went to a wedding a couple of months ago in LA where the bride had hired Bollywood dancers not just to perform (which they did, stunningly, as the sun set over the Pacific) but also to teach all her guests to Bollywood dance. So, naturally, there are now pictures of me, Bollywood-dancing (badly, if enthusiastically) in Malibu and in full formal garb with at least one extremely famous movie star.

    Best wedding ever. But not exactly representative of my average evening out.

  2. Hey, I’m tryin’ to work, and this is VERY distracting.

    Things in my life comparable to Ariel’s recent wedding experience: Uh…

  3. Oh, my lord, that man, whoever he is, is the very definition of pulcher! I can forgive him his occasionlly ridiculous choices in headgear. I could probably forgive him a lot.

    And I can stream “Dhoom 2” from Netflix to my TV. No waiting!

    • He is Hrithik Roshan, Bollywood superstar. And the ridiculous headgear is from when he’s supposedly in disguise, kinda like Superman and his Clark Kent glasses.

      • Ah. Well if it’s a disguise.

        I know nothing from Bollywood, except now I know who the toothsome Hrithik Roshan is. We did try to watch “Dhoom 2.”

  4. Yeah, Hritik’s a great actor–I especially loved him in “Mission Kashmir”. Preity Zinta (the actress) though has done better films, like “Kya Kehna” (she plays an unwed mother who faces harsh treatment in her small town), and “Armaan” (the role of the protagonist’s schizophrenic wife). She’s good in “Lakshya” too.

    Well, some of my favorites are the older movies, like “Sholay”, “Amar Akbar Anthony”, “Maine Pyaar Kiya”, “Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge”, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum”, “Dil Chahta Hai”, “Lagaan”, “Swades”, “Parineeta”, “Veer-Zaara” and “Devdas”. “Hungama” was a riot. “Black” was also an awesome movie. “Rang De Basanti” made both my sister and I cry. “Don” (both the 1978 and 2006 versions) is really worth watching too.

    Among the newer movies, “My Name Is Khan” really impressed me. “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na” was also big hit in my house. Then there’s “3 Idiots”, which was absolutely hilarious. Some are saying “I Hate Luv Storys” is also pretty good, so I wanna watch that next.

    I could go on. And on. And on.

  5. Oh my gosh! This is totally my fanvid. I’m madformovies1! Thank you, Sherry, for putting it out there. I literally just stumbled upon this when I was looking for news about your next release. I’m a big fan of yours…this is just so weird!

    My favorite Hrithik Roshan movies are Mujhse Dosti Karoge!, Kabhie Kushie Kabhi Gham and the highly recommended Jodhaa Akhbar. Every romance fan should see the last title…it’s just beautiful!

    • How funny!

      Your fanvid is so well done–and has all the best parts of Dhoom II. And the choice of music is ingenious.

      And I just recently saw Jodhaa Akhbar. Hrithik and Aish are the next legendary Bollywood couple, no doubt about it. Now they just need to make more movies together.

      P.S. My next books won’t be out until 2012 though, sorry.
