Bajrang Bali

Here’s the trailer for Bajrang Bali, a wonderful Bollywood movie telling the tales of Hanuman, the monkey god, from the Ramayana. As with most depictions of the glorious iconography of the Hindu religion, it is it colorful, wild, and utterly bizarre to my western eyes. The no-budget special effects are definitely part of the charm… it’s kind of like an alternate-reality Sid and Marty Krofft show, something like what would happen if HR Pufnstuf and Sigmund the sea monster were gods. You can buy it here on DVD for $10… and I think I got my copy even cheaper, so you may want to shop around. I highly recommend it.
