    Oh bloody hell - why can’t brown people write original storylines? WHY?!

    This isn’t actually called BiLB2 but it may as well be.

      What we need is a story about a Muslim guy, yeah, he smokes a bit of weed, like, and he’s in love with, check this, a white girl, but his family have only gone and got him an arranged marriage with a cousin from Pakistan who’s like a bit ugly and fat, so the Muslim guy goes a bit angry one night and gets arrested by the police, who are racist, and send him to prison where he gets corrupted by proper Muslims who turn him into a fundamentalist. Upon his release he has to decide: does he wage war against the world, or the fire that rages within him. Anyhoo, he ends up marrying his english girlfriend, the terrorists get sent to guantanamo bay, his father reveals he’s a gay, and everyone has a bollywood dance as the credits roll.

      Where do I send my invoice?

      Well done, India! Bollywood meets Hollywood and forgets the B.

      In a few decades nobody will be able to distinguish India from America.

      Kismet Hardy @ 1,

      I cried.

      You are that good.

      Kismet Hardy @ 1,

      Can we have now part 2, please!

    5. douglas clark — on 1st September, 2011 at 11:59 am  


      I am, moderately, confident that Kismet Hardy could take on Bollywood and turn it around.

      Sort of.

      Part Two would, naturally, be somewhat the same as Part One.

      Obviously I would cry equally at Part Two as I did at Part One. Kismet Hardy is that good.

      Incidentally, I quite liked ‘Bend it Like Beckham’. Being neither English, Asian nor female, I find that this is the only place I can unburden that enormous feeling of guilt. And shame.

      Never forget the shame.

      Any advice you have to offer would be gratefully received. Although an explanation of the ‘i’ before ‘e’ except after ‘c’ rule would be equally useful.

      It strikes me that, whilst we are on the subject of you giving me advice, your view on the Higgs Boson would be gratefully received. Phew!, I think I got the ‘i’ rule right.

      I find the idea that the Higgs - as we fans of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ tend to call it - not being there or thereabouts as far as the LHC at Cern can tell is a bit of a major worry.

      By the way, my dick is a bit itchy.

      Your views would be, as ever, welcome…..

      Hang about- I thought you were English?

    8. Rupa — on 3rd September, 2011 at 8:06 am  

      I feel I no longer have to go and see this film as it’s all been encapsulated in that 2 min clip. Phew!

    9. Sarah AB — on 3rd September, 2011 at 8:17 am  

      @Rumbold - ZOMG - you didn’t really, did you?! But perhaps you are just teasing him.

    10. douglas clark — on 3rd September, 2011 at 8:54 am  

      I imagine it is a bit like being heterosexual and liking ‘The Wizard of Oz’. If you do, you only share it with true friends lest the world, which is a cruel and strange place, thinks the less of you. Fortunately, I am safe here, amongst good chums.

      I don’t know, exactly nor precicely, what the world at large will make of me liking ‘Bend it with Beckham’, but I assume the worst.

      SarahAB - Rumbold is a very cruel boy who pulled my pigtails. You might like him now, but just you watch out!

    11. Rumbold — on 3rd September, 2011 at 11:09 am  


      I have met Douglas, and he is a very nice chap. I had to remind myself he was Scottish at times. Heh.

    12. douglas clark — on 3rd September, 2011 at 6:13 pm  

      Oh, OK.


      Rumbold may be English and a bit posh but he is really remarkably normal. For a posh Englishman.

      And a bit of a good egg as well, as one says in ones young adult novels. We might josh on here, but deep down….

      I am pretty sure we could all start a Famous Five re-enactment Society. And have spiffing fun! And lemonade and exclamation marks.


      Apologies, I’ve been reading Jasper Fforde.

      This is why Asians have no street cred or respect in creative media. Rubbish Bhangra music (all sounds the same). Rubbish films (all look the same). Racist against Black people but are parasites on black culture… Play on negative racial stereotypes thinking that they are in with the joke but not realising everyone is laughing at them; not with them. SAD

      I find my chum Kismet Hardy a person of worth, in the literary, stand up, well, well, funny sort of a sense.

      I expect, if he came to the Edinburgh International Comedy Festival, well, I’d laugh.

      Then again, I am very fond of Kismet Hardy and I would want him to suceed. And I’d find enough chums to fill out his first gig, or two. It is not to say that you share my enthusiasim. You bastards.

      Because I think he is funny and I’d assume most of my chums would too.

      Well, he is, isn’t he?


      Dear Kismet.

      We can probably find you a site - think a primary school classroom on the edge of planet Einburgh - but we’d think you were worth it and better venues would be assured. Well, not assured exactly… We’d have a bed for you.

      Can you do stand up?

      Love you.

      Well, we’ll organise it for next year.

      I guarantee I will be in the front row going rah rah and shit like that…..

    15. douglas clark — on 12th September, 2011 at 5:32 pm  

      Kismet would be a guaranteed success at the Edinburgh Fesival thingy, just because he is kinda of well loved. At least by me and everyone else on Pickled Politics.

      Just saying………….

      This Movie is called Speedy Singhs not Bend it Like Beckham part 2 :\

      You made Bro?

    17. MISS LUba LUba — on 14th September, 2011 at 9:52 pm  

      The irony is lost on you, MR Luba LUba. I guess you’re the perfect audience for bend it like Balgit… I mean ‘Speedy Singhs! Yawn….
