"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

In Reprise

It now seems a distant memory but a few months back this lane appeared to be a bustling shopping centre.
A large film-set had been constructed in just over a week.

Kamath & Kamath, like almost all Indian movies, was showing in cinemas within six months of filming the final shot.
Sadly, it bombed both with the critics and at the box-office


Even the DVD has long since been remaindered.

    How sad, I enjoyed that clip. I also want to taste a Dosa, we don’t get them here. The music was fun too. You showed us the building of the set, did you not?

      As for dosas, they are delicious. As it happens, I can hear Dalila cooking some masala dosas for our breakfast as I type..

    What is the vegetation that is growing on the roof and the tree limbs?

    • It’s the inevitable mix of epiphytes which come to life during the monsoon: grasses, weeds and orchids..
