Throwback Thursday: Ram Teri Ganga Maili, and the Question of Subtitles


I will posting another FFG Review tomorrow, and in anticipation I decided to tie today’s Throwback video to the opening sequence of the movie.  Ram Teri Ganga Maili (1985) is a Bollywood classic featuring Mandakini and Rajiv Kapoor. Sadly it does not have subtitles, but I hope you enjoy it all the same.

This leads me to my question of the day.  The aim of this blog is to encourage other non-native Hindi speakers to give Bollywood movies a try, and I know the language hurdle is a difficult one for many people to overcome.  So my question to you is, would it help if I were to only include Throwback videos with subtitles, or are you happy enjoying the videos as is? I would love your feedback!

Kal Milenge!

Throwback Thursday: Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha

For today’s Throwback Thursday I chose a song I have been playing on repeat for the last few weeks.  It is not very well known, which is rather surprising given how catchy it is.  Starring Ajay Devgn and Kajol, Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha is actually the Bollywood remake of French Kiss.
