What was happening in the small northwestern town of Trujillo, Peru in 1985 while I was in the car, traveling from one part of India to another?
Mother India – a bollywood film was being played at the local theater to a packed audience!
Yes-it’s true! Bollywood films were quite the rage and apparently the Peruvians loved the films for the theatrics!
The song and dance routine pulled them into the theaters and they happily sat through the three-hour saga.
Our friend recalls that Mother India was advertised as “ the movie, which will make you cry for the entire time!” and it was a big hit.
Here’s a few visuals
What was happening at your end of the world ? Would love to hear !
