Tahalka... now not just a powder. Apparently.

"Patriotic" Bollywood action movies are those in which you're likely to find courageous young Indians with rocket launchers single handedly taking on the entire Pakistani military... or righteous everymen serving up payback to some kind of fanciful super-villain who serves as a stand-in for every real and perceived threat to the homeland. Tahalka is neither that specific, nor that fanciful, but it sure is angry about something. In any case, what you really need to know is that Tahalka is a film that features scenes of Mogambo/Mola Ram himself, Mr. Amrish Puri, singing and shaking his booty. Read my review at Teleport City.
