You know you're watching a SanjayBhansali movie when...

After RGV, the next target is the master of opulent cinema, Sanjay Leela Bhansali...

( To people who told me the RGV post was harsh: It wasn't meant to be harsh but only humorous.)

SLB has an eye for detail. You know you're watching a Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie when.....

1) There is a general sad undertone to every happy scene. And you keep wondering why... At times till the end of the movie you don't understand why the movie was so sad throughout.

2) Nobody in the movie lives in a house that is small. SLB sketches India where the accommodation problem is a remote reality and everyone lives in 'huge' houses. The only reason behind it is the fact that in different scenes, they like to run around the corridors of the house. To add to the drama, these corridors MUST be long enough for the audience to wonder if the house has any rooms and if the house is also one big corridor.

3) SLB has a contract with the 'Akhil Bharatiya musicians sanghatna' (All India musicians Organization). Whenever SLB is recording a song of his movie, there is no other Bollywood song being recorded. Because all the musicians of 'Akhil Bharatiya musicians Sanghatna' are playing in the orchestra. Or so I think with the loud pandemonium that SLB calls the music of his film.

4) All actors never have a 'teardrop' running down their cheek. It's always 'tears' in full force.

5) 'Hum dil de chuke sanam', 'Devdas' and 'Black' did not have a single comedy scene in them. To prove his prowess in the comedy genre, SLB made a full-fledged comedy film - 'Saawariya'.

6) The heroine/hero, atleast ONCE in the film, has to call out to some other character - and that too stretch out the name as if he is in outer space.... 'Devaaaaaa' from Devdas, 'Sameeeeeeeeeer' from 'HDDCS', 'Mrs. McNeilly' from Black are a testimony to that. (For some reason, I thought that Amitabh's character in Black had an affair with Michelle's mother considering the number of times he calls out to her in his scary hoarse voice.)
