Et tu Kamalhasan ?

Ah the joys of late night Sun TV in India..... channel surfing after getting in around 2.30am, I see a young, moustachioed Kamalhasan in a Tamil movie that had to date back to the 1980s (to go by the amount of lip gloss the heroine's lips were glazed in), singing and dancing around a very chintzy, gold set wearing - I kid you not - a white mini-skirt length Roman tunic, with black trim, and the kicker: white fisherman sandal/boots that came up mid-calf on his legs.

For some reason, the damsel who was on the receiving end of his attentions was not following the ancient Roman theme and was only in a sari.

And then they lay on a round bed that rotated while four women tossed rose petals on them.

I'm Kamal was wearing enough lip gloss to rival his heroine! Hope you had a good trip! Did you touch Madras?

Should I say, happily, no, not this time. (Well, with mixed feelings anyway....)

Bombay has been great: weather is just right, lots of hanging out, with occasional sightings of a certain soon-to-be-married Sindhi...
