photoblog image Kapoor Family

Kapoor Family

With a sizeable Singaporean population of Indian descent and more Indian labour being brought in by the British those days, Indian movies were eagerly awaited. Ticket prices ranged from $1 to $3.


The Kapoor family is a prominent Indian family with a long history in Bollywood cinema. Prithviraj Kapoor, the first of the Kapoors to pursue acting, was born in 1901 and his first lead role was in 1929. All of his sons, Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, and Shashi Kapoor, became actors and achieved success and recognition. Of the above eight posters, seven were acted in or directed by one or more of these Kapoors. I could not find much info on the top left.

More wonderful film posters!
They make a fine photo-subject, Ayush.
I have to admit to kind of liking Bollywood! It's cheesy yes, but sexy in a G-rated way, and there's always a happy ending - and the dancing is infectious!

I would imagine these are formulaic productions much suited to local taste
