Imagine landing in a strange world where old-fashioned romance, blood-spattering violence and musical choreography numbers blend seamlessly to make a blockbuster movie. Envision a place where baseball is considered too fast-paced and not gay-enough, so folks prefer cricket. Let your mind conjure up alien beings who believe killing animals for food would be bad, but killing Pakistanis with nuclear submarines would be jolly-good sport. Welcome to Planet Bollywood.
The film Ghajini would be my second pick. Aamir Khan is a manicured telecom executive who transforms himself into Rambo/Terminator to avenge his true love, despite memory loss every fifteen minutes from an old head wound. The twisted plot and funny dialogue will grip you. Moreover, the uber-silly-yet-romantic music videos will delight you more than you'll wanna admit. Planet Bollywood is not a place I'd like to call home. Yet, no traveler should miss these two cool forays into an unforgettable world.
