    We watch him, he looks at mannequins, they stare back at him; scopophilia en abyme. Paul urges our gaze. Hips swaying, arms bending, eyes narrowing and piercing.

    If you start watching Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) on December 31st at 09:15:23 pm, Amitabh Bachchan will make his grand entrance during Bole Chudiyan singing 'OoOooOooooOOooOoooOoooo' as the clock strikes midnight. Start your new year right.
