Well, this is a very impractical choice. It will only work if you all swear to watch on Einthusan and nowhere else. But you say you will, so fine! We’ll try it!
Brilliant Yash Chopra directed, Salim-Javed written, Shashitabh and Hema and Raakhee starring, movie. Problem is, there are loads of slightly different prints floating around, and for a watchalong, we all have to watch the same print or else our comments will make no sense.
So, at 3pm Chicago time tomorrow, we will go to Einthusan together and hit “play”. Only on einthusan! No other version!
Oh, an einthusan is sometimes touchy about starting and stopping in the middle, so I recommend downloading the whole film in advance.
On the other hand, if you are one of those people who reads the comments later, doesn’t really matter. It’s not like the different versions have different endings or something, they are just a few minutes off in a way that makes a watchalong hard but doesn’t really matter. It’s not a Sholay situation.
