Bollywood review – Mr Natwarlal

HIlarious old Bollywood movie starring Amitabh Bachchan. If only Australia could have Mr Natwarlal as Prime Minister! he gets everything done, he can sing, wrestle tigers, jump 10m up into a tree, there’s nothing he can’t do. He’d sort this country out straight away, and even throw in a song too. Mr Natwarlal swears vengeance on arch villain Vikram (I’ll never be able to hear that name without laughing) for framing his uncle. Many years later he tracks Vikram to a remote region where he has enslaved the local villagers. Violent hilarity ensues. Also a classic childrens song, the bizarre landmined cave scene and some rather disgraceful treatment of horses. But no movie I’ve seen will ever top this for out and out melodramatic silliness – even sillier than Mr India (though Vikram would be no match for Mugambo). 85/100
