Trailerblazer

Ok, I'm going to sound really old, but back in "my days", you had the trailer and then you had the movie and then you had the movie reviews. Finito. However, these days they have a lot more. Too much, in fact. The first poster, the first motion poster (what the...), first teaser, dialogue promos, song videos, affair/break-up/divorce rumours, the trailer, the uncut trailer, and then fiiiiiiinallly, when you have lost all interest, comes the movie. And all of these things have their own reviews.

It was, therefore, with a lot of reservations, that I watched a video of this American guy called Jaby Koay who does a lot of stuff, but notably, reviews Hindi movie trailers. He doesn't know a word of Hindi, of course, and yet, courageously watches them first without subtitles and then with (if he can find them). Along with a guest, he then proceeds to talk about what his understanding of the movie is and also gives his opinion on everything in the trailer. It is funny, endearing and eye-opening, all at the same time.

It was very very interesting to see an open-minded outsider's perspective on Indian movies. He really makes an effort to understand Indian sensibilities and why some things in Hindi movies are that way. One simply does not question such things. Because... We are like that wonly, no?

Since good things are meant to be shared, I'm posting the two videos I liked the most -- 'Zindagi na milegi dobara' and 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'. Watch the first video to find out why he said for Hrithik, "That guy should not exist." (If I didn't hate the phrase so much, I'd really say "LOL to the max" here.)

And... he said something very unexpected about Salman Khan which touched a chord in the heart of this ex-Salman-Khan-fan.

Enjoy! :)

Gold! LOL haven't done that in a while...

I am yet to watch the videos but I totally agree about the extra promotion things that are there these days. I mean I have been following this fashion blog HHC and I see on there that celebrities change more clothes while promoting the movies than actually in the movies. Makes me shake my head in disbelief. Too much importance to show off than acting or storyline, which are practically nonexistent these days. Sigh! No wonder I haven't seen many new movies in last 5 or so years.
