Play it Raj. Play 'As Time Goes By'.

I'm a huge fan of 'Casablanca'. Yes the old time romantic film set in World War II occupied France strikes a chord in me every time I see it. I can't count how many times I've viewed the film, but it's one of the best I've ever seen.

Bollywood has often made some silly if not out right insulting remakes of various American movies such as Fight Club and the horrible Superman. Not content with making 500 romantic films a year with actors breaking into song and dance for no apparent reason some genius has decided that an Indian version of Casablanca is in order. According to the article it's set to the separatist movement in Sri Lanka. This is by the same director that made the Bollywood version of The Seventh Seal.

Yes Hollywood is not above ripping off foreign films, such as The Seventh Samurai, but still...

I've never seen Casablanca if you can believe it & i've really only flipped by a Bollywood movie. Perhaps i'll watch the bollywood version to kill two birds with one stone :)
