The Tom Cruise Of Bollywood

Nov 06, 2015, 04:53 AM

On this episode of the Split Screen Podcast, Kathy Gibson from Access Bollywood joins Shah Shahid again to point out just how much the Bollywood remake 'Bang Bang' goes out of their way to dumb down the female lead from Hollywood's 'Knight And Day'.

SHOW NOTES:

'Knight And Day' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KnightandDay ] is a fun and light hearted action rom-com that is enjoyable for casual audiences.

'Bang Bang' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bang_Bang! ] further exasperates a Bollywood trope.

Online dating was a missed opportunity for product tie-ins for 'Bang Bang'.

I generalize the approaches of South Asian culture to relationships.

Jimmy Shergill [ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0792116/?ref=nvsr1 ] is the Sean Bean [ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000293/?ref=nvsr1 ] of Bollywood.

Hrithik's character in 'Bang Bang' is an incompetent and inconsiderate spy, brother and general human being.
