Q19. Why the not so subtle references to London in the movie?

8/30/2006 7:51 AM
Q: i dont understand this phenomenon...
Bulla says after chutiya dies "... are, tuje mard banane ke liya maine london se goliyan mangawayi thi...". There is also another mysterious reference to london when lambu atta says on kundan's death "yaad he woh dhandhe waali... iss jahaj me london".
i dont know why everytime when younger brother dies, the elder says something abt london... but if the legend like KS (its kanti shah, not kamasutra) has put it, then there must be something abt it. please enlighten me guys.

Kanti Shah has done extensive research on the subject before making this epic-movie.

First, prostitution is legal in London - so that explains why Kundan's "dhandhewaali" recommended a flight to London.

Second, the Pfizer Global Research & Development (PGRD) headquarters is located in New London, Connecticut-USA. Pfizer owns the patent for the famous drug "Viagra" to treat men's impotence.
So Bhulla is referring to New London in USA & not the London in UK.

Ans. Its a tongue-in-cheek reference to male virility. In both cases, the London statements were made in a sexual context.
So, KS, added a touch of masked wit (and of course pure genius): SHOUT OUT THE WORD formed by the first four letters of the aforementioned city, : and you have your answer!
