Dil Se (1998): Chaiyya Chaiyya

Every once in a while I tune into a Bollywood movie to save myself from the tedium of modern Hollywood efforts.  I saw this on television a few years ago, and was immediately struck by the beauty of the countryside, plus the technical complexity of arranging cinematography and choreography for a moving train.  The song is currently my earworm of the week.

Now making a mental note to visit the Nilgiri Mountain Railway.

We could easily film something like that here in Canada. VIA Route #1, “The Canadian”, passes through the scenic Rocky Mountains and has enough roof square footage to permit dancing by all the A-, B-, C- and D-list Canadian celebrities you can think of.
