Ultimate relaxant
7 March 2005 | by osm-1See all my reviews

Turn off your brains, sit back and relax - that's the slogan for most Indian movies. I consider this one to be a masterpiece. "Jimmy, jimmy - acha acha acha!" - this song is still remembered throughout the former Soviet Union, though 20 years have passed since the film was #1 in national top. Indeed, Indian producers far outsmarted Walt Disney in silly-story-making, with far lower budget. Who knows what globalization issues will produce in the next few years? If Indians win the movie entertainment market, this film may hold the place of Casablanca. As a matter of fact, both Casablanca and Disco Dancers are full of clichés and national vision of the outer world, so in this point of view Disco Dancer is a masterpiece again.
