Fall in love with Canberra again – courtesy of Bollywood!

Are you falling out of love with Canberra? Does your romance with the national capital need a little boost?

I promise you, if you watch this excerpt from a Bollywood movie, filmed recently in Canberra, you will find your mojo for Canberra all over again!

This is Canberra, but perhaps as you’ve never seen it before!!

I, for one, loved this video…and I hope it goes viral…it deserves too. (Australian Capital Tourism – you need to get your hands all over this!)

Now, what is the movie, and when does it come to Canberra?

Enjoy – and move those hips…

OMG did you notice the naughty naughty bit close to the end?

Really, these international types flouting our laws, brazenly and shamelessly!

I agree, Canberra Tourism should use this for their next Ad campaign – gold!

I think that was me walking around in the background at the War Memorial.

Mus get me some popcorn next time I visit the Carillon?

Yawn. Standard, boring, cliche locations. Canberra Tourism doesn’t need any more of this sort of stuff. I hope it doesn’t go viral.

Love it.

There’s something incredibly warming about Bollywood singing and dancing scenes, and not just the incredible beauty of the women involved.

There’s someting almost “village panto” in the nievity, unsophisticated dance and story lines, and the innate guilelessness of it all.

Why oh why does YouTube not have a “fast forward” button?!?

To each their own and all that, but 30 seconds of Bollywood per year is probably about 20 seconds too much for me.

Movie is Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage, 2002.

some poor continuity near the end when they’re dancing among the flags…

The song and dance sequence in this bollywood movie was shot in the year 2000. Movie flopped so not many people wouldve seen it, and those who did would have had no idea where it was shot at.

Luckily it wasn’t filmed outside the ASIO building. Their brown skin would have seen them disappear into some sort of Australian gulag.

The same road rules applied in 2000… c’mon observant ones, where are you?

Olivia, are you talking about the actors not wearing seat belts in the driving scenes? Yes, I think a couple of laws might have got broken there.

Perhaps it was New Delhi rules…not Canberra rules?

I enjoyed it, although I’m not sure the AWM is an appropriate background for a musical, even ‘Springtime For Hitler’!

Not sure this was the one shot in 2000, however, as I jogged through the background of a scene being shot near the flagpole on Regatta Point. The actors in this clip look totally different from the ones there that day. Of course, it could have just been a different scene….

Canberra has about a thousand locations better than parliament house to shoot. We plan to shoot there next year and found some very interesting places. Canberra is quite unique in many ways to look at but the lake and parliament house don’t capture any of it.

I didn’t think in front of the War Memorial was quite right either.

Dancing in front of the AWM for an INdian film is about as appropriate as western honeymooning couples taking cute kissy photos outside Thai temples etc.
