The Trailer for Despite the Gods combines two things that I love hearing about: the making of a movie that ends up in a disaster for the film makers (Lost in La Mancha, Heart of Darkness) and non-indians thinking that India is a mythical land of enlightenment, nirvana and cows but ending up finding that levels of insanity that they could never imagine. (Think the guy from the Oatmeal who went to India).
Here’s the trailer:
I never watched Hisss as I could never find a decent copy of it but I was always intrigued by this weird cross over movie starring Malika Sherawat (who is awesome) and David Lynch’s daughter especially after our good friend FilmiGirl loved Hisss and even wrote up this awesome review. Plus we get to see more of Sherawat which we can all applaud. I’m really looking forward to watching Despite the Gods for all these reasons.
And a movie that gave us Malika Sherawat in this Holi Song can’t be all evil can it?
