A definite nostalgia assailed me watching The Darjeeling Restricted after 14, perhaps 15 years. Although I had by no means seen the film in its entirety it was an omnipresent a part of my childhood. The truth that it was shot in India meant it acquired an prolonged protection in Indian Media. I might stumble throughout brief critiques on the again segments of my father’s journal. We’d glean snatches of scenes when my father, le commissaire of the T.V distant, flicked via the channels and would momentarily hover, for a couple of minutes, earlier than hopping again to the information channels. It will air on HBO. A cultural shock seeing one thing Indian on a Hollywood channel. The colour blue and Adrien Brody in a raveled swimsuit has caught with me since.
