Cast: Kiran Kumar, Jeetendra, Sunjay Dutt, Jayaprada, Madhuri Dixit
Thanks to this film, I was able to remember how much fun 90s Bollywood was~ when it wanted to be!
The movie opens with a fantabulous Kiran Kumar, evil landlord of a village. He not only rocks a topknot, he has a pigtail trailing out of it!
In true filmi fashion, the brothers meet accidentally in a train, fight, and Sunjay manages to throw Jeetendra out of the moving train off a cliff. Oops.

It is so exciting, and yet, so scary to have this happen. At 5' 1" (barely), I'm still not at a ideal weight and measurements, but I am so proud to have accomplished this much. And I am terrified~ about being able to maintain this. Its bewildering to discover a part of me I had forgotten. And I am painting again, another part of me that had gotten lost in the struggle of being an immigrant, and the daily pressures of school and work.
I'm going to keep doing what I am doing. Maybe this is how phoenixs feel.

Title: Wapas (Trans: Back; as in going back)
Cast: Shekhar Purohit, Alka, Satyajeet, Leela Mishra
And you can easily imagine how all this wraps up.
Wapas isn't a bad movie, but it definitely feels redundant with a very tired script. The highlights are Leela Mishra and the lady playing mom to Alka with all their gesticulations and scheming, while Alka is decorative in parts. What I really enjoyed are these two songs by Mohammed Rafi, that stay with you long after the movie is forgotten. Enjoy!
