[the translation is actually closer to "something or other happened" :-)
This would be a fun FoRKcon event if we could ever 1) find a subtitled
35mm copy and 2) everyone was crushed into the cheap seats like it's
meant to be :-)]

"Kuch Kuch Hota Hai"

Karan Johar's "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" (translated as "Something in the
starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, is the new Bombay musical that
flaunts bad
hip-hop dancing, "Grease"-like singing, drop-dead edible beautiful
people and an
extravaganza of color, romance and moral dilemmas the likes of which
haven't been
seen in American cinema in a long, long time. If you've never indulged
in a bit of
Bollywood, this is a delicious way to experience this contemporary
musical form
that mixes the insane optimism and giddy morality of old American
musicals and the
sensual excesses of MTV.
