It indeed is a mystery that while India is considered as a land of magic and country of swangs (popular in theatre lexicon as adopting various roles, which is also manifest through various dance forms) the films, which try to underline this virtue, fail to strike a chord with the audience as it does in the day-to-day life with same regularity. Exceptions are always there. It is altogether more intriguing as a series like MISSION IMPOSSIBLE that thrives on appearances is a roaring hit all over the world. Letís have a rewind of these films to have a sense of the approach to world of magic and getups or swans. Interestingly enough, Amitabh Bachchan is one actor who has done it quite a number of times.



SHAHENSHAH: It was probably the first film in 80s where the dress of Big B took quite a lot of time to adorn, more so the right hand with all the chains and the paraphernalia. At the time when Big B had just returned from an illness, to be able to carry a weight of 15 kg on one hand was some weight. Though the film was a luke warm success, its punch line "rishte mein to hum tumhare baap hote hain, naam hai SHAHENSHAH", still is a favorite dialogue.
