    I'm actually in this movie as an extra. You can see my very clearly in one scene "dancing" in the nightclub scene. I was a super-awkward 19-year-old who sucked at dancing and had never been to a club in my life, and I look about as ridiculous as you'd expect. :D (Just look for the nerdy looking dude in glasses weirdly bobbing his head up and down during a close-up between the two stars.)

    I remember during filming, the person…

    This is one of those rare movies that meets all four criteria from my GREAT MOVIE CHECKLIST:

    ✓ Amitabh Bachchan showing off his chest hair in green leather while punching a dude through a brick wall.

    The film started to improve for me after…

    Can I just say how amazing it is that we live in a time when I can google to find examples of the first Japanese films with a narrative, and then just hop on YouTube and immediately WATCH a 119-year-old film? Amazing.

    One of the best parts of this movie is when the two male leads are arguing over who should be Vyjayanthimala's true love, and she steps forward and says (and I'm paraphrasing here) "Hey assholes, don't I get a say in this myself?!"

    Conversely, one of the worst parts of the movie is when a few minutes later, one of those men takes an extremely drastic step to basically ensure that no, Vyjayanthimala, you're not really going to get a…
