Rules for making INDIAN Movies
1. If the number of heroes is not equal to the number of heroines,
the excess heroes/heroines will
- join the Red Cross and take off to Switzerland before the end of
2. If there are 2 heroes in a movie, they will fight each other
savegely for at least 5 minutes (10 if they are brothers).
3. Any court scene will have the dialogue "Objection milord". If it
is said by the hero, or his lawyer, it will be sustained. Else, it
will be overruled.
4. The hero's sister will usually marry the hero's best friend (i.e.
the second hero). Else, she will be raped by the villain within the
1st 30 minutes, and commit suicide.
5. In a chase, the hero will always overtake the villain, even on a
bullock-cart, or on foot.
6. When the hero fires at the villain(s), he will never
- run out of bullets.
When the villain fires at the hero, he will always miss (unless the
hero is required to die, as in rule).
7. Any fight sequence shall take place in the vicinity of a stack of
- glass bottles, which will be smashed to pieces.
8. Any movie involving lost+found brothers will have a song sung by
- the brothers
- their blind mother (but of course, she has to be blind in order to
regain her sight in theclimax)
- the family dog/cat.
The amazing thing is that these folks remember the song after 20
years in the movie, and you can't remember it 2 minutes after coming
out of the theatre.
9. Police inspectors (when not played by the bhero) come in three
- Scrupulously honest, probably the hero's father - killed by the
villain before the titles.
- Honest, but always chasing the anti-hero (as in rule), saying "Tum
kanoon se bach nahin sakte", only to pat him in the back in reel 23.
Usually, this inspector's daughter is in love with the anti-hero.
- The corrupt inspector, (usually the real villain's sidekick)
unceremoniously knocked about by the hero(s) in the climax.
