banno, dhanno and teja in bumm-bumm-bhole-land

recuperating or resuscitating or whatevering with the rajputs

Watching ‘Rajput‘ through one entire evening, 4 hours on Set Max with lots of ads, but a long film, in itself. Like the viral fever all over again. Drifting in and out of stupor. Time seemingly standing still, and yet taking quantum leaps forward. Don’t know if it’s today or yesterday.

I went to take a call and came back to a son born and a husband come back happy now that a child that is not his has been born to his wife. He cannot help but know that the kid is not his, since he has never slept with her ever. And been away since the first night. Because he cannot forget the sight of a dead man’s body over her unconscious one. A man who was kidnapping her. I do not understand, just as I did not understand the strange dreams of my feverish slumbers in the last few days. The explanation for everything, anything is ‘We are Rajputs’.

Towards the end of the film, I have to check up on IMDB who the director is. Vijay Anand. I cannot believe it. Ugly rape scene with villian and victim tied together, shots of bleeding female legs, all about honour and dishonour, eew.

Teja and I sat there as if we were trapped, as if we could not switch off the TV, as if it was not a perfectly beautiful evening outside. I guess we both still felt weak and feverish and too tired to bother doing anything else.

PS: The imdb plot summary is more coherent than the film.

    I remember liking Rajput…now I need to watch it again! Maybe I was just dazzled by the cast. Although my standards are not that high as you probably know by now:-)

    Hope you and Teja are feeling better!

    I hope you and Teja get better soon- viral in India cant get like a vicious cycle- been there.

    I think I will stay away from Rajput- Rajesh + male testosterone overdose= much too much.

    Get well sooooon!
