Bombay TV

An interesting website is this one: Bombay TV, by the French communication bureau Grapheine. They provide you with 30 second clips from classic Hindi movies, like Deewaar and Sholay, under which you can put your own subtitles. I have to admit, very funny to do, but also a nice insight in the western attitude towards bollywood. Some people have put their results on YouTube, and it seems that turning the characters in gays is especially popular. And, as one youtuber says, 'stupid subtitles for stupid movies'.
