Sridevipalooza--The Interviews

Sometimes trawling the depths of Youtube can really pay off.  I found an excellent interview with Sridevi on Doordarshan's Baaje Payal from 1994 which focuses on her dancing.  The interview is replete with clips and commentary from costars and choreographers (including Saroj Khan) commenting on the energy and emotion she put into her dancing.  There's also a fairly in-depth discussion about the animosity between Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit.  The interview is split between Hindi and English so it's easy enough to follow, and even if it weren't it's worth it for the film clips alone!

Mayday, MAYDAY!

SOS guys.  S.  O.  S.

There are NO Sridevi movies streaming on Netflix.

What's a girl to do?!  I was all set to launch a night of Sridevi classics and now I have to wait three days for Netflix to mail a DVD to me.  Someone call the UN...this is definitely a human rights violation.

In the meantime, I'll be browsing Youtube for vids for tomorrow's Sridevipalooza post, and deciding which Sridevi film to pick out on Netflix.  I've narrowed the choices down to Judaai, Sadma, and Chandni.  Thoughts?

(I know which film Kajol would choose!)

Song of the Day--Main Teri Dushman (Nagina)

What a coincidence!  I've been listening to Main Teri Dushman on repeat for the last few days, ever since I read Sepia Mutiny's excellent post on Mallika Sherawat's Hisss.  And today I find out that Amaluu is hosting a Sridevi birthday celebration!  How perfect.  So in honor of the gorgeous Sridevi, here's the greatest take on the Cobra Dance I've ever seen on film:  Main Teri Dushman.

Film: Nagina
Directed by: Harmesh Malhotra
Music by: Laxmikant and Pyarelal
