As I mentioned before that Hmong people love Bollywood films. A lot of us grew up wathcing them dubbed in either Hmong and/or Thai. We didn't know the original Hindi film title. As we grow older, we want to re-watch them...but we do not know the Hindi title.
You'll be amazed with all the e-mails and questions I get all the time about finding the Hindi film title to so many movies!! I was able to answer many but there are a few I had no idea on!
Special thanks to Bollyviewer who helped me solved one and suggested I blog about the others still pending....
Move #1 - late 70s
I think the one I am looking for involves a king. Thai people say Oong. That's a king in Thai. So it's Oonkg Koriman or something like that in Thai. King Koriman, that is.
The cover should show a guy in striped suits, bearded with fingers on his necklaces, maybe standing over a beautiful lady, holding up a human head or something...? Not sure.
A circus star who killed an escaped lion to prevent harms to the spectators got reprimanded by the circus manager; after a struggle between the two, the star killed the manager. From there, the world turned dark on his face. The sky. The fans. His mom. His girl. They all took him to be a killer. So they all closed their doors on him. He had no place to go. He couldn't live with people anywhere. The dark sky was about to rain and he looked scared and in a very desparate situation. So he just ran off.
The next scene showed him with a total look: fatter, bearded, curly hair--all happy on the mountains with some animals. He has tamed up the animal kingdom and has lived peacefully with the animals and the wild now.
The star continued to despise humans, however. Anyone he saw coming there, he would kill. A snake pipe blower got killed. Some other hunters got killed. Each person that he killed, he would cut off a finger and add to his necklace. He got lots of them...
Then one day his girl came to look for him. In her most beautiful appearance, she sang into the jungle, across the sands and streams...he took her to be another human stranger. So he wanted to kill her. But something reminded him of her, so he didn't. But he refused to go back home with her. He just yelled at her and told her to go back and to leave him alone. She hung onto his leg. But his just dragged her on the sand...hey, beautiful sight.
His mom--old now--came to look for him. He didn't recognize her anymore, so he chased her down with his sword. He raised it and tried to slash off her neck. But he couldn't move his sword. Something had stopped him from moving his sword. So while his sword was raised and him struggling with it, his mom ran away. Suddenly, a shiny figure of Buddha or something on lotus appeared. He chased the figure to kill it, too, but no matter how much he moved his feet they seemed to stay at the same spot. Like walking but not going anywhere.
Now the shinny Buddhist figure told him what to do and soon he bowed down.
At the end, the hero returns home with the heroine. The people threw rocks at them. It's a sad ending.
