I haven’t been in much of a film-watching mood, what with all the TV series I needed to catch up on. But today, watching Maha Badmash, one thing caught my interest and made me want to watch more films, if only for academic research. No, it was NOT Vinod Khanna’s famous swimming trunks (and the figure that went with it). It was his stupendous bow tie that intrigued me. Clearly, for a Bollywood hero, a tie is not just a tie but a statement of machismo and size does seem to matter in these things! Here, take a look at it. Can you honestly say that this piece of cloth would not draw your attention?
And here are some other magnificent specimens of said article of clothing. What do you say? How does Vinod Khanna's tie compare with that of the hoi polloi? Does any of them offer any competition to the sheer magnificence of the enormous red bow at his throat?
You think this was just an excuse to post some great tie-candy? You are so wrong. I am dedicated to research in the field of filmi bow ties. Time permitting, I will keep bringing you more fruits of my research. And I would strongly encourage all of you to pay closer attention to this all-important piece of apparel. If you ever see a tie that could rival Vinod Khanna’s record breaking neck-piece, please do bring it to my attention. In the meantime, I will start writing about the
men films behind these ties.
