Loud woman on phone: “Hey, there’s this Thai actor, wants to make a Hindi film. We have to first mount 5 action sequences. Yes, those are the highlights of the film. Story – we will think of something around them. The story should be something which is very low-production value. They want to spend all the money on the action scenes. Those will be the high points of the film. What do you think? Should we do it? It sounds very exciting.”
So, now you know how films are made here in Bumm-Bumm-Bholeland.
P-Bapu and I were barely able to stop ourselves from choking on the Tandoori Bekti and the Aloo Poshto at ‘Oh Calcutta’.
Later, I said: “Isn’t this Andheri West culture too much?”
P-Bapu said: ” Maybe she was only pretending to speak to some one on the phone. You know, telling everyone in the restaurant, how busy she is.”
I said, gloomily: “And maybe, they were really planning a film around 5 action sequences.”
P-Bapu said: “Yeah.”
