    I love mismatched subtitles. But these aren't too bad.

    One time I created a Japanese monster movie parody, that I called "The Atomic Foot Versus Tokyo,"

    I inexplicably inserted a samurai sword fight, where you could hear the Japanese spoken words (I actually got native Japanese speakers to do the voice-over off camera, since the actors couldn't speak the language). And the English subtitles I put on the screen were another parody of a turn of the (last) century English drawing room melodrama, that went something like:

    "Penelope, you know I love you."

    "Yes, Roger, but you realize Father will never give his consent."

    "Then we must defy convention and elope at once."

    "That I can never do, for my family will disown me."

    "What is family, when love rules?"

    And so on. While all the time these 2 samurai warriors are having a sword fight on camera, with these totally incongruous subtitles running beneath them.

    The climatic scene was when the Atomic Foot destroys Tokyo. I had gotten a miniature cardboard city model that another student used for some other production. I had someone write Japanese Kanji characters on them, as though it were the Tokyo Ginza, and I put talcum powder all over the tops of them. The whole model was placed on a high table, so the studio cameras would be at the same level.

    Then I had a guy strip to his underwear, and walk across the model, crushing the buildings. The cameras only captured his bare legs and feet. I had it recorded in slow motion, which suggests greater scale. Off camera I had grips squeezing plastic talcum powder bottles, to add more "dust" to the scene, plus as the Atomic Foot knocked over buildings in slow motion, the talcum powder on top of them also was released.

    Finally, I had 3 actors off-camera making vocal sounds into a microphone, voicing effects like crashing & destruction, to match the Atomic Foot crushing the buildings. Of course it didn't sound very realistic, that was my intention, being a parody of a bad Japanese science fiction movie.

    I won several student awards for that crazy production. Though I got more acclaim when I executed an orange with a cannon, and personally interviewed General Custer at his Last Stand. I guess I was totally unhinged in my late twenties. icon_redface.gif

    Although I'm too impatient to listen to all the songs in Indian movies, I've noticed that the true lyrics of the songs are written almost like poems. Here are some examples:

    Here are some American singers "singing" Indian songs:
