Now Bollywood's jhatkas, matkas in Polish film

Panaji, Nov 22 (IANS) And you blamed Bollywood for consistently seeking 'inspiration' from Hollywood −− a Polish film now has a Bollywood−like number and filmmaker Jakub Tarkowski is unabashed in his debt to the Mumbai−based film industry for similar inspiration.

Tarkowski, one of the three directors of the Polish film "George The Hedgehog" was in Goa to attend the 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI). He also said that he was overwhelmed by the host city and the choice of films on offer at the event.

"In our movie, we made a musical sequence that was inspired by Bollywood," Tarkowski told IANS, while speaking about his film, which is based on comic book strips. Its plot involves two neo Nazis and a scientist who club their talents together.

The musical sequence is complete with the 'thumkas' and 'jhatkas' found in Bollywood films.

Tomasz Lesniak, one of the three co−directors of the film, who is also in Goa, drew a parallel in the element of exaggeration in animation films and Bollywood cinema. As animation specialists, that was one of the reasons why they shared an affinity with Hindi cinema.

"We wanted to exaggerate some things in our movie in a similar way. Maybe that is why we can relate to Bollywood movies," Tomasz, also known as Tom said.

What else tickles Tom's 'Bollywood bone', is the far−fetched action sequences, where actors often fly, swing, gyrate, kick and leap unrealistically in the action sequences, and often almost immediately break into a song and dance sequence.

"I like the exaggeration. Any action scene is 10 times more intense than other movies. Every actor is singing in the movie in the song. It is very exotic for me. I like it," Tom said, adding that although he had watched several films, he did not recall names.

In fact, the director duo said that like in Bollywood films, in animation too exaggeration rules the roost, where a character's expressions have to be doubled or tripled.

"There is a rule in comic and animation that if you want to present an emotion, you have to make it double to be understood. So the similar thing happens in Bollywood, but with actors," he said.

Commenting on Goa and the host city Panaji, Tarkowski said: "We are looking forward to watch movies here, the selection is interesting."
