Gonna do something about this rich vein throbbing inside my blog, and dig out those moments in Hindi films that have induced delicious shivers through the very heart of me or strummed the starting chord of delirium (D minor?).
Am starting with this bit from Dil To Pagal Hai:
There’s a bit of the weird (those fond imaginings, bleargh) and hammy (not that funny, huh), but the last bit where she realises there’s no hope of explaining herself, before crumbling into a radiant shyness and busting out of the joint made starbursts fly out of the screen, I kid you not.
When I saw Madhuri Dixit break out in a smile and bury her embarrassment in the jacket, that’s when I knew she was one for the ages.
