Last week I posted a video of a rather strange car chase, from a very B-grade movie from the mid-1970's. Thinking about weird car chases, I suddenly thought about Bollywood. I've posted several Indian cinematic fight scenes here that were so over-the-top, they were actually funny. I wondered . . . has Bollywood done the same thing to cinematic car chases?
Oh, yes. Yes, they have.
Here's the first instalment in a week of Bollywood car chases.
Just where the hell did all those explosions come from??? And how did the action morph from city streets, to the waterfront, to a shopping mall, to the streets again? And how many cops and police vehicles can pursue one man? It looked like half the Indian Army to me!
EDITED TO ADD: I replaced the original clip, which turns out to be abbreviated, with a slightly longer one that shows the end. It's still ridiculously over the top, but you get a better idea of why the protagonist was so eager to escape.
