Where Avant-Garde Meets Après-Garde...

... in that confluence lies Bajrangi Bhaijan, displaying the breathtaking, awe-inspiring, sheer power of pure Bollywood.

And why the fuck is no one talking about the art direction and mise en scène of the film? What a heady, potent mix of all styles - from naturalistic to kitsch; from interesting steadicam angles to '80s production designs; with a nod to old DD visual styles thrown in for good measure - often in the same damn scene! Who knew Kabir Khan was such a bag of goodies? 

Again, why the fuck is nobody writing about this aspect of the film in their reviews? 

To all design geeks: "Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?"
