I don't anticipate having a lot of time for writing reviews this week, but I wanted to post a few images I liked from the 1967 Bollywood film Night In London, most of which showcase the distinctly Orientalist glamor of sixties starlet Malu Sinha. Directed by the tersely-named Brij, who also gave us Bombay 405 Miles, and starring -- in addition to Sinha -- Bishwajeet, Johnny Walker and Shetty in a larger-than-usual role, the movie combines elements of travelogue romances like An Evening in Paris and Love In Tokyo with the obvious influence of the Bond films. All in all, a diverting little caper, complete with a potentially world-destroying secret formula hidden in a much-coveted diamond necklace, narrow escapes from spike-walled torture chambers, helicopters galore, and a couple of dazzling song and dance numbers from Helen. Todd says check it out.
