2 Faces of Bollywood

If you are reading this blog, you may know my passion with movies, both Hollywood and Bollywood. Bollywood despite its 90% (or 99%?) masala movies, continue to thrive, survive and make mark on all segments of society due to its continued commitment to artistic movies, irrespective of outcome at box offices!

Recently I watched their new production - Paan Singh Tomar - movie made over 10 years, on real life of Indian National athlete turned dacoit (wikipedia here). This movie is important to watch for 2 reasons. One is for its commitment to off beat/character/art/social/independent cinema. And the second reason is - Irfan Khan himself.

I strongly believe that in today's Bollywood, Irfan Khan is the most versatile and mature actor with his body habitus, voice, command and control over language and dialogues. This movie is so far the best produced on him.

If you appreciate good acting, you must watch Irfan Khan in Paan Singh Tomar!
