A Most Stupendous & Audacious Undertaking

I managed to catch this when it was in the theaters (it had a really short run at emerybay - which often has bollywood films - worth checking out!)

and hit enter way too soon - the movie is fantastically fun - i've since tracked down a download of it (to tide me over until i can buy it on dvd), and have watched it a couple of times again.


I'm doing the movie night this thursday. By any chance do you have your hands on the DVD yet? If not I'll be figuring out somewhere to rent it -- none of the online VOD rental sites have it.

Yes I do - not sure I can make the movie night but I can bring the DVD in to work with me this week and hand it off to you.

Awesome. I'll email you about arranging a meetup.

I think a lot of Americans over estimate the impact of American media. Bollywood, telenovellas and Nigerian cinema are extremely popular worldwide and are part of an international media landscape. This whole notion of a global uniculture--not so true.

And I think we are probably already at the point where American IT professionals have more in common with their counterparts in other parts of the world--at least to some degree.

You might also be interested in Magadheera. Less technological though equally amusing.

While this looks interesting (and I'm definitely going to check it out), I'm interested in the effect of Limitless on the public's perception of nootropics:

I was going to say that Bollywood movies are already quite popular in the Middle East and Africa, but then you mentioned that it was Tamil and not Hindi - I have no idea if Tamil movies have historically been as popular outside India (and the Tamil diaspora in Singapore, Sri Lanka, the UAE, and so on). I'll have to check it out some time, especially since Tamil is the ancestral language of the Indian side of my family.

Tamil movies, perhaps not terribly popular outside India, but Aishwarya Rai movies? ;)

i'm hoping this comes to netflix.
