Bollywood @ hulu.com (but Smita Patil is so beautiful!)

March 29, 2010

Yes, I know there are a lot of places to watch bollywood films illegally on the internet, but the films that are streamed on hulu.com are totally legit.

Just search for “Bollywood” to see a list of Desi films. I decided to watch Khoya Khoya Chand, because it showed up first on the list, and I hadn’t seen it yet. The film is Sudhir Mishra’s tortured and fragmented effort to recreate the painful lives of Bollywood stars from the 1950’s. As you may have gathered, I didn’t like the film. But it did remind me of another amazing film that I watched (illegally, perhaps) on youtube.

If you haven’t seen Shyam Benegal’s film Bhumika, you absolutely must. Firstly, it is everything Khoya Khoya Chand is not. Secondly, Smita Patil is just so beautiful! (sigh).

Also, I’ve had favourable  reviews of Shyam Benegal’s latest film, Well Done Abba. If it doesn’t release in some New Jersey multiplex, I’ll wait for a year and watch it on hulu.com.
