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!
