I came across this on YouTube today. Thought it was interesting. Does anyone else here enjoy Bollywood movies as much as I do? I discovered the Indian version of Hollywood a number of years ago while in High School. The movies were extremely cheesy and all incorporated dance/music scenes throughout…which made it incredibly entertaining and easy to forget about not always catching everything in the subtitles.
Apparently, they shot a film in 2010 that features Machu Picchu in a song and dance number. The movie is called Kilimanjaro. I don’t know the premise of the movie, but I doubt it really had anything to do with Peru considering the name of the film is a mountain in Africa. I am sure they were just seeking out other “exotic” locations to film, although the dancers are in costumes that resemble what “native” people would wear, they really are just costumes with hints of Inca dress sprinkled about. Nevertheless, it was pretty neat to see throngs of choreographed dancers on the ancient site, dancing to music…gives a rough idea of what a festival might have looked like up on top of the Machu Picchu 500 years ago.
If nothing else, at least enjoy the dancing from the beautiful actress and the great shots of Machu Picchu without the tourists. They actually filmed it on a great, clear day!
