Amazing comprehensive article.

I think am looking forward to 'Lafangey Parindey' partly because its a throwback to the 'gully' and 'mawallis'(Anil Kapoor?)that 90's had come to symbolize.

I think I like the larger than life movies, where the common man emerges the hero, it denotes some kind of emerging resistance. About the candyfloss movies from the YRF and KJo camp- hate the fact that they show life to be so easy.
