Work and Mr. Darcy have been keeping me busy for the past few days. Yes MR. DARCY, Elizabeth Bennet’s Mr Darcy. You wont believe the things he gets up to when he isnt silently mooning over or proposing to Elizabeth. He gets acquainted with women of dubious morals, consorts with spies, gets drunk, fences, and even boxes! You cant imagine how eventful his life is, and just how much of my time its taken to catch-up with it – not unless you’ve read Pamela Aidan’s Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman series. I’ve just finished the last one in the series – These Three Remain – and cant wait to read the earlier two titles!
Back to filmi-fun - I have come across an interesting case of copyright violation that I’d like to share with you:
Gullermo del Toro reminded Desi-Hellboy of how often Bollywood has “borrowed” from Hollywood, and told him that it was payback time!
Do any of you know who Desi-Hellboy is? Bonus points for guessing the name of the movie as well!
Edited later in the day: Filmi Girl and AJ correctly identified Desi Hellboy as writer/director/producer/actor O P Ralhan and the film as Hulchul. Its an interesting thriller full of some very good looking people - young Prem Chopra, very young and very dashing Kabir Bedi, Padma Khanna in some great costumes and Helen looking lovely as always. It would have been a great movie if only Ralhan hadnt given in to the temptation to cast himself in a major role (in the worst wig EVER!). Check out Filmi Girl’s fun review for plot details and some great screencaps.
