Bollywood movie: Bobby

Time Out says

A classic bolly-romantic tale of first love and how parental disapproval, the class divide and religion can conspire to tear it apart. Rich Hindu eighteen year old Raja (Kapoor) falls for chubby Bobby (Kapadia), the sixteen year old granddaughter of his Goan-Catholic nanny. The teenage lovers elope. This groundbreaking blockbuster worked, as Indian audiences had never seen teenage sexuality expressed so blatantly and realistically on the Hindi screen. The hit soundtrack was naughty and suggestive; the lead pair totally convincing and adorable. Lovely.

Written by Anil Sinanan
