I refer, of course, to Baahubali! Parts 1 and 2 are both available on Netflix, in Hindi, Telegu, and Malayalam. I've now seen both in the first two languages (I saw parts 1 and 2 twice each in the theatre, and would have seen them more if they'd been playing longer), and think I need to see them in Malayalam.

If you're thinking, "I don't like Bollywood" (it's actually Tollywood), or "eh, it's so long, maybe later," or some such... watch the trailer. And if that doesn't sell you, I will also mention that it has two of the most badass heroines I've ever seen onscreen. Both of whom are middle-aged moms. (Do NOT watch the trailer for Part 2 if you haven't seen Part 1 - it's very spoilery.)

Still my favorite song. (Link goes to audio only, in Tamil.) Admittedly partly because the scene it appears in is still one of my favorites in the entire series. This one shows the scene (song in Hindi), though without the previous context, but don't watch unless you've already seen the movie - it spoils a scene which partly relies on surprise.

I hear the director is considering doing more movies in the same world. Man, I hope so.

Yuletide fandom, anyone?

Ooh, I might look for this. Which language should I watch it in-- what was it filmed in?
