Bollywood: Apna Desh
This is a typical Bollywood morality play of the early 70s, pitting Purity Sue Rajesh Khanna and bubbly girlfriend Mumtaz, against a gang of corrupt but powerful people. It is best remembered for the Crazy Awesome second half, where the two leads run a sting operation on the bad guys by pretending to be wealthy evil westerners-American, or possibly British. Rajesh wears a blonde wig in a shag cut, various technicolor nehru suits, and a bunch of bling. Mumtaz wears a blonde wig in a Jackie Kennedy flip 'do, various technicolor minidresses and a bunch of bling. Neither of them are all that convincing as westerners, but the bad guys are too dazzled by Rajesh's fabulous mansion and Cool Car, and Mumtaz's dance moves, to notice. And the audience doesn't care.
