How NOT to treat an infant: Pt. 1

Sita-Ji, Apunbindaas and I have all commented on certain fight scenes that involve small children, and how NOT to treat them.  Here is another example taken during the Telugu film “Bunny”:

We start off well enough. This is a good example.

Then, not so much…

Cuz this is what happens

We try to do a little better…but:

I hope that was a fake blade during filming…

Sharat Saxeena does his best to protect the little guy…

He gets him to safety…maybe?

Hey evil baddie, don’t carry the kid like that…(not the best screencap-sorry)

EE! Or, like that. What’s gonna happen?

Nai!!!

Rawr! (random extra screen cap. LOL)

Just a little snippet of a post.  I’ll screen-cap Varsham soon and if I get my hands on Raja Hindustani I’ll try to add that.  If you have other scenes to add, let me know! :D

    Ha! My personal favorite is actually part of a dream sequence. “Aaj Madhosh Hua Jaaye Re” in Sharmilee (1971, Shashi Kapoor and Rakhee) – Rakhee is dreaming of life with Shashi, including a happy little bundle of joy, and he dances around the garden cradling the baby and then tosses it in the air AND THEN DOES NOT CATCH IT ON THE WAY DOWN. YES!!! That signals her cruel awakening to the sad fact that it is her sister, not her, who is going to marry Shashi and have the dream life. It’s jaw-dropping in its bluntness and is such a stark contrast to the dreaminess of the song. I love it! You can see it at the very end of the song here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P8C8FiAODo&feature=related

      Beth,
      That is an EXCELLENT example. lol. It was a little hard to focus on the beautiful song knowing that was coming up. Not only that, now I’m intrigued about seeing the film. Thanks for your input!

    Isn’t it hilarious? :) That is one of my very favorite movies ever. Here’s my writeup of it, if you’re interested – there is a LOT going on in the film and every time I watch it I see something I hadn’t noticed before. http://bethlovesbollywood.blogspot.com/2007/03/sharmeelee.html

    Fantastic! Thanks for the capturing the abuse in these great screen caps! Love it, and you’re right, must add Varsham and Raja Hindustani to the list to document. Also, there are some pretty harsh scenes at the start of Amar Akbar Anthony with the tots that could be documented. Beth, I have to bump up Sharmilee in my queue after seeing that clip. Why was Shashi such a freak!?

    Ha! He is imaginary in this particular case. There are twin Rakhees – he has a romance with the outgoing one, but the shy one (the Sharmeelee of the title) also loves him, and it is her fantasy that this song depicts. However, she is not QUITE so delusional as to think she will really get to marry him, so at the end of the song, her dream comes crashing in on itself as she comes to her senses and realizes that life is not to be. Or that is my interpretation, anyway. It is SO WEIRD.

    I tried looking on Netflix for this one, but didn’t see it, at least under the two spellings (Sharmilee/Sharmeelee) My curiosity is piqued now though, I’d really like to see it.
