Dil Bole Martial Arts.

Saw Dil Bole Hadippa today. It was a fun, time pass sort of film. Kinda preachy though. Actually it tried to be preachy, what with talking about Indo-pak peace and women empowerment whilst showing a blossoming tale of love between the protagonists, reconciliation between the parents and cricket matches. All this done in typical yash raj style, with the songs, dances and the vibrant colors of Punjab. Things that make Bollywood what it is. And things that make people like me enjoy a film. Rani Mukherjee was really funny as a boy, in a juvenile sort of way. As a girl, she was just... Rani Mukherjee, nothing special. One time watch. Oh, and the movie is not really a rip off of She's the Man. Just the basic idea. They're both quite distinct in their story.

Cool thing: Random kid in theater was inventing some sort of new martial art style. Looked a little like tai-chi. He/She (couldn't tell in the dark) would randomly flail about the hall. Quite funny. Oh, also, whenever anybody in the film would cheer/applaud, this kid would stop inventing his/her new martial art style and would join in the cheering/applauding. Once the cheering/applauding would end, he/she would very matter-of-factly resume with his/her flailing.
