Well, now I am getting all nervous about jinxing things. The baby’s going to get a cold! The flight will be delayed by weather! I will have temporary spontaneous blindness! Something is going to keep me from seeing this baby for real, instead of just in ten million photos/videos.
Anyway, questions! You can ask me anything you want about anything. If you wonder about a particular Hindu holiday, or the history of an actor, or anything else, this is the place to ask. And also to bring up random other topics you like (at least until Wednesday, when the Wednesday Watching post is the place to bring up random topics).
Now, question for you! This is kind of confusing question, I hope I can phrase it right. I am finally watching Prime Suspect and having the strange feeling of “oh, this is the origin of all that stuff I saw in other later shows”. What Indian films have you watched early on in your journey and then gone back to later and realized you got the wrong end of things, saw the imitation before the original?
Well, Saathiya is an obvious one for me. I still love Saathiya, but it’s frustrating that I saw it so long before I went back and saw Alia Payuthay.
And in a more general sense, I saw Amitabh first in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and Mohabbatein before I went back and saw him in Sholay and Deewar. And Sanjay in Munna Bhai MBBS before Khalnayak.
