Review ★★★
Bombay Talkies

Bombay Talkies is a little less traditional Bollywood and a little more a celebration of the (Hindi?) film industry in India. It’s a collection of 4 separate movies. They all sort of revolve around the idea of personal identity. While they each were well written, and well performed, I sort of wish the stories revolved around slightly less progressive issues. The story about the dancing boy was not my favorite. But seeing Katrina Kaif as an angel was sort of weird and interesting.

In the last 10 minutes of the movie, there’s this song “Bombay Talkies” (of course) that was a great tribute to 100 years of film and you can try to name all the stars in the last part. I recognized most of them! It’s fun to be 78 movies in.
