Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
The movie will leave you wondering why Hollywood is incapable of producing romantic comedies anymore (The Wedding Date!), why Aishwarya Rai has to be so much more beautiful than any other woman in the history of the X chromosome and wishing you could understand all the nuances of Indian culture. Yes, there is one too many dance numbers, it is a bit on the silly side and you will have to read sub-titles for three hours but you'll thank me by putting it on the Netflix queue. It touches tragedy and pathos and slapstick and romance and duty and saris, saris, saris! Here's a taste. (RDD in white having his dawning realization, Tom Crouch in black and the most gorgeous woman in the world singing about lemons.) Without giving anything away, I will say that we get a pretty great HEA.
Betty Debbie and I agreed that Heaven Around the Corner had to be paired with a film with a lot of bridges. What better than...
The Bridge on the River Kwai
