This morning the song in my head was this gem from Baaton Baaton Mein (1979). My sister and I were obsessed with this movie - and I don't think there's ever been a hero quite like Tony Braganza ... played with such conviction by Amol Palekar, who may or may not have shoulders. Tina Munim's "Nancy Pereira" also seems to be dancing very awkwardly here, and Ranjit Chowdhary has a Jughead-from-Archie-comics appeal as Nancy's brother Sabi. The only person who seems to be having a great time here is Shobhini Singh as "Hazel Pinto". Maybe she's not uncomfortable with the fact that they turned "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" into a Bollywood song?
