visions of Bollywood dance in my head

In preparation for Bride and Prejudice, I am introducing myself to Bollywood. And what a magical place! Abby and I were completely enchanted by Mujhse Dosti Karoge and on Kevin's recommendation I am in the middle of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai - which as it turns out is the top of the top ten list from bollywhat.com that I had printed out and taken to Retertainment a few weeks ago. As he handed me his un-subtitled copy, he said he thought I could follow it since the storyline was visual enough. Well, maybe I can when I'm not under the influence of Sudafed, but yesterday I certainly couldn't. What I missed was that most of what has happened so far is in fact a flashback. Ah. However, no amount of drugs could obscure the fact that the leading man in this is a ham extraordinaire who is too full of himself to be remotely worthy of the attentions of the heroines. Goodness.

What I really want is to find a Bollywood dance class.
