Get Rid Of The Phrase ‘India’s Answer To…’

In Bollywood, India on January 24, 2010 at 10:25 am

Evidently India has an answer to BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. The ‘answer’ is ‘Dunno Y…Na Jaane Kyun.’ Alright then. Let’s clear two things:

(a) Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain is a classic. Few filmmakers in the world will even come close to the nuance and maturity of Lee’s handling of this film’s subject. Let alone a film whose title ‘Dunno Y…Na Jaane Kyun’ can’t even decide which language they want to get their point across in. (b) We’re quite sure Ang Lee didn’t set out to make Brokeback asking ‘What will India’s answer to my film be?’

 And while the list is seeming endless, here are some other stupid ‘India’s answer to’ references:

Brangelina – AbhiAsh

Google Earth – Bhuvan

Marilyn Monroe – Asha Sachdev (???!!!!)

Gregory Peck – Dev Anand

Gerri Halliwell – Manisha Koirala

To China – A train to Sikkim

Walmart – RelianceMart

Twitter – Gupshup

Viagra – Caterpillar Fungus

Madame Tussauds – Siddhagiri Museum
