Fantastic dancing, to fantastic music by Iqbal Qureshi.
P.S. Those who want to see lots and lots more of Shashi Kapoor this week can go here. For most of the time during my own Bollywood/Kollywood obsession, I’ve thought of Shashi and Ragini as little brother and little sister, respectively, of two true great ones. Ragini has at this point assumed her own greatness in my mind (and heart) (though I still consider her big sister to be greater, of course, plus Padmini generally got to be in better movies). I don’t think I can at this point claim to consider Shashi a great one, maybe partly because I still haven’t seen one full movie with him in it. But I do like watching him in at least a few clips. so I’m perfectly happy to observe “Shashi Kapoor Week” at least for one day. And a happy birthday to him, too (on Wednesday, that is).
