Madness for Myanmar Indians
MYANMARI YANGON, FEB. 28. However, the theatres are still full - this on a road near Yangon railway yard with six cinemas, five of which regularly show Hindi movies, including'Dil to paragal hai','Aarzoo','Ghulam','Baadshah' and'Teesra kaun'? After a home-made weekend, a new Bollywood publication, `Taal', has relocated to other citys.
This is the latest Indian blockbusters with Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, `Phir bin di shai hindustani'. Kyaw Min Htun, editor of the New Myanmar Journal, a Burma newspaper for the Yangon youths, remarked: "The attraction for the song and stamp act in these movies draws audiences into the cinemas.
Not only in Yangon and other Burmese capitals such as Mandalay - Burma's culture capitol - or the important mountain terminal Taunggyi, but also in the country and in smaller capitals. In Yangon there are over 30 cinemas, of which over 50 percent show Bollywood-movies.
There' s also a substantial buildup before the publication of any movie. Beside placards and pictures move automobiles, which roar the movie tracks to announce the newcomer. Take for example `Taal', which was made famous by its famous number `Taal se taal mila......''. Their enthusiasm for Hindus can be seen in the fact that the film's distributor licenses for the whole of Burma were supposedly for $10,000 - a relatively high sum by Myanmar standards. 3.
It' on full speed in different videohalls in Yangon and other towns. Every single workday we receive enquiries for a replay of this film," said a Mandalay videohall manager, who has 100 such sheds. Every movie published in India arrives here in less than a week," said the proprietor of a movie theater in the mountain village of Pyin Oo Lwin.
There are two theaters, one of which shows regular movies in Hindust. In general Hindustani movies run for a whole weekend, but some go on for two whole months, the latest one being the Shah Rukh-staring ```Kuch kitchen kiss hoota hai''. The by far most loved performer is Shah Ruskh Khan. He and other beloved celebrities can be seen in a number of streetstores.
Besides Ajay Devgan, Sunil Shetty and Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan and Salmaan Khan are also well known. Favorite female characters are Kajol, Aishwarya Rai and Mahima Choudhary. We like the kind of stamp act that is generally not seen in our films," says Mr. Thant Lwin Maung, a college drool.
Strangely enough, the municipality of India rarely visits cinemas or videos. The majority prefers to see the movies at their homes.
