Bollywood Alphabet Meme

What the heck is this Bollywood Alphabet Meme? Well, a friend wanted me to do this Bollywood style. I can try to do it with Hollywood films too. But it'll be posted at another time so maybe I can link properly to where the original blogger had made it intentional.

I'm not tagging anyone, just anyone who wants to do it.
Do it, out of boredom. Or even for fun. If they want, they can link back to my blog. If not, no biggie. But I do prefer it. Regardless I have credited the original blogger for starting this idea here.

Here are the rules for Bollywood Alphabet Meme, which I have copied.

The Rules

1. Pick one film to represent each letter of the alphabet.

2. The letter "A" and the word "The" do not count as the beginning of a film's title, unless the film is simply titled A or The, and I don't know of any films with those titles.

12/04/2008 - This is from Upendra/Piyaara. What a good laugh!!

Upendra to the rescue!

3. Return of the Jedi belongs under "R," not "S" as in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi. This rule applies to all films in the original Star Wars trilogy; all that followed start with "S." Similarly, Raiders of the Lost Ark belongs under "R," not "I" as in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Conversely, all films in the LOTR series belong under "L" and all films in the Chronicles of Narnia series belong under "C," as that's what those filmmakers called their films from the start. In other words, movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Use your better judgement to apply the above rule to any series/films not mentioned.

4. Films that start with a number are filed under the first letter of their number's word. 12 Monkeys would be filed under "T."

5. Link back to Blog Cabins in your post so that I can eventually type "alphabet meme" into Google and come up #1, then make a post where I declare that I am the King of Google.

My picks. I've mainly sticking to films I have not reviewed yet, grew up with, films I'm still looking for, or maybe just straight out faves of mine. Okay, forget what I'm saying. I'm starting….

O Wow! This is such a great idea! :-) And yes, I think its pretty hard too, unless imdb helps! Just as a fun exercise, I tried a quick version and realised it would take me forever. :-(

I am so impressed! There's no way I could do that, Bollywood or Hollywood style!

Nicki said...

Darshit - Thanks so much!! You rescued me! I never seen Xcuse Me and I surely don't want to. :D

theBollywoodFan - I'm glad I reminded you of Parampara. I definitely have to get that film again. Loved it! I actually want to get all the films on the list. Actually I think out of all of them, I only own 9 of them but haven't reviewed them yet. Hope to see you do your list soon. :)

ajnabi - Come one, I want to see a list from you, hehehe.
