Christmas season officially starts THIS FRIDAY!!!! So I want to watch Christmas Movies. By a broad definition of including at least one scene that is Christmas related, OR being about Illegitimate Babies.
As I see it, there are two kinds of Christmas Movies in Indian film. The kind that has a specific Christmas reference, like Malang which specifically takes place over Christmas in Goa complete with Santas. Or the kind that has a general “miracle illegitimate baby” reference.
So here’s what I have come up with so far:
Drugs, vengeance, sex, and SANTAS!
Kaho Na Pyar Hai
Santa! And also, reincarnation (sort of)
Magical illegitimate baby
Zindagi Na Milagi Dobara
Farhan Akhtar=Jesus, Naseeruddin Shah=God
Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
There’s a Christmas sequence in the middle of a song, close enough
I may be wrong, but I think there is a little bit where they talk about celebrating Christmas?
Can you think of any others? And which do you want to watch this Friday? Or Saturday?
