Typical yet solid remake of "Body Double"
26 April 2007 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

As is the norm with Bollywood, this remake is uncredited, but that's another story for another time. "Pehla Nasha" is the directorial debut of "Lagaan" director Ashutosh Gowariker, who is arguably one of the best and most honest directors in Bollywood right now. I don't normally follow Bollywood, but I've seen more Indian films than most middle class Canadians, and Gowariker never fails to astonish me with the sheer gulf in class between his directorial abilities and that of most of his peers.

Anyway, about the film, I haven't seen it in a long time and I'd imagine it would be pretty hard to find outside India. All I remember was quite liking it and thinking it was about as good as the original, which I never thought of as one of DePalma's better films.
