"Disco Dancer" (1982) and "Body Rock" (1984) at Alex's

     Hey everyone, Alex will be showing two very goofy relics from the 1980's in his awesome home theater

 

First up is "Disco Dancer" (1982) a classic Indian film directed by B Subash.   Anil (Mithun Chakraborty), a street performer and wedding singer, is scarred by the memory of the rich P.N. Oberoi (Om Shivpuri) beating his mother (Gita Siddharth) in an incident during his childhood. When David Brown, the manager (Om Puri) of current Indian disco champion Sam (Karan Razdan) is fed up and looks for some new talent, he happens across Anil who is dance-walkingdown a street. Rebranded as Jimmy, the rising disco star must take the throne from Sam and win the heart of Rita (Kim Yashpal), P.N. Oberoi's daughter.

 

Body Rock is a 1984 film directed by Marcelo Epstein about a young man "from the streets" with a talent for break-dancing. It stars Lorenzo Lamas in the lead role of 'Chilly'. The film featured music by Laura Branigan. The theme was sung by Maria Vidal, which peaked at #48 on the Hot 100, #8 on the US dance charts, and #11 in the UK.

    I'm bringing a couple of bags of chips. I was hoping to bring some Indian snack food, but probably won't have enough time to get it.
