Movies in movies

Here's what i meant in the previous post. A song from the superhit Dil Chahta Hai, where you see a couple imagining themselves onscreen (don't we all do that?), and going through the different Hindi-film styles (50's, 70's, 90's). Through going to the movies together, they realize they are in love. A landmark movie that according to many youth set a trend. A trend towards movies that were more about friendship than about all the love-parents-tradition crap of the 90s bollywood.

I read your blog and found it very informative. The event blogs are striking enough to have a feel of the event, so, I would like to have a little chit-chat on your blogging interests. And even we are coming up with an event on startups on June 6th in Bangalore. So, can I have your contact details? Looking forward to hear from you.

Hey Markus,

All my life, I have seen Hindi movies as means of entertainment and timepass. Off-late, some of the serious/off-beat movies have been thought provoking. But, somehow, your blogs have a different insight about mainstream hindi movies!! I saw Billu Barber and knew the song from Dil Chahta Hain but never linked them and or thought of how hindi movies seem to be so obsessed about themselves that they keep showing movies inside movies.. or aspects about it.
