Hindi films such classics are

Influence both near and far…

This film industry

Of quaint mimicry

Where lavish production is star.

Twentieth century Bollywood

Newer entertainment withstood…

For the longest time

The “R” rated kind,

To focus on stories so good.


(English: John, Johnny, Johnathan by name)…

A star three men played,

Father/sons portrayed,

Cemented his long-running fame.*

Consider a plot line enamora,**

A male party crasher with camera…

That the heroine chases

From “just female” places,

While he captures her dancing ephemora.

NAGINA, with Rishi Kapoor, ***

A mythical “snake lady” tour…

Sridevi, the lead

Was a lady indeed,

A dance and song flick for the mature.

Amrish Puri, head snake charmer,

Has evil intent to harm her…

The climactic scene

With his henchmen mean,

She nearly does buy out the farmer.

The India film’s boy versus girl

Celebrates what goes ’round the world

With song and dance

Giving love a chance,

Keeping private when lovers’ toes curled!

—Jonathan Caswell
