Shark Rock

Shark Rock

Artist Jimmy Swift spent hours getting beat up by the waves and sand to paint this pointy rock off the coast of South Goa, India to look like an angry great white shark. It makes for amazing photo opps for visitors, though smacking into a rock might be just as dangerous as swimming with sharks.

Theory of Time

Theory of Time

Street artist DAKU’s overhead installation in Goa, India casts shadows of words onto the ground as the sun shines through its semi-transparent panels. When viewed in time-lapse, the design is particularly effective. (Thanks Richard!)

Bollywood Bodybuilder Fight

A ridiculously over-the-top fight sequence from Shankar’s Tamil thrillerI in which the protagonist beats the crap out of a roomful of oily bodybuilders. The human barbell gag is priceless, as is the exploding mirror bit.

Endhiran Train Fight

One of the ridiculously over-the-top fight sequences from the 2010 Tamil action film, Endhiran, in which the robotic protagonist takes on an army of thugs aboard a moving train. The roller-shoes bit on the train tracks is priceless.

Indian Headshakes

Indian Headshakes

Here in the States, we pretty much have two headshakes – “yes” and “no” – but in India, there’s a number of different, and sometimes confusing gestures. In this short clip, YouTuber MeenFriedChickenCurry explains it all to us.

The Fish Building

Catch a glimpse of this unusual office building located in Hyderabad, India – shaped like a giant fish. Naturally, it houses the National Fisheries Development Board. Looks like we’re gonna need a bigger rod and reel.

Bollywood Shark Attack

Bollywood Shark Attack

They’re definitely going to need a bigger boat… and a bigger helicopter… to take down the ridiculous shark in this Indian action flick. Though an ordinary sized spear seems to do the trick. More here.

We’ve heard all kinds of music and singing around here, but we can honestly say this is the first time our ears have had the privilege of listening to this tongue-twisting Indian scat singing called Konnakol.

Simbhu Cop (Trailer)

Simbhu Cop (Trailer)

Another ridiculous movie coming from India’s Tamil cinema, loaded with crazy action scenes, bad acting, over-the-top musical numbers, and a guy who plays with his sunglasses more than Horatio Caine.

Mumbai Train Ride

Mumbai Train Ride

The trains in Mumbai, India have a reputation for being overcrowded, but these kids make riding on the outside of the train far more dangerous than it already is. Needless to say, don’t try this, EVER.

Rajinikanth Fights

Bollywood Transformer

We have no idea what’s the deal is with this Bollywood clip of a little kid in a cowboy outfit dancing with Bumblebee from Transformers. All we know is Michael Bay has just been outdone.

This sci-fi flick is the most expensive movie ever produced in India. Imagine what $43 million dollars buys you in Bollywood. Lots of guns, wall-walking, and a snake made out of people for starters.

Don’t Mess With This Singer

Don’t Mess With This Singer

The Indian action star had some insane moves, but he was in an action movie. This guy is in a music video, and he still manages to kill tons of bad guys in the most ridiculous ways possible.
