Whiteness, Herman Melville from Moby Dick, 1851
|Mandakini's great bath in Raj Kapoor's Ram Teri Ganga Maili|
"This is arguably the best waterfall shot I have ever seen outside of those long-winded and half-assed documentaries on the rain forests of Java. Miss Mandakini's *its have been used with charming ambience to optimize and enhance the subtle play of light and shade which is so necessary but generally overlooked in outdoor shooting by most except the greatest of directors. I would personally recommend them to anyone who still cares about our diminishing ozone layer. Indian cinema has at last come of age and in the future we can perhaps hope to see more and more films on the Gangetic delta and the Deccan plateau starring Miss Mandakini's bell*, bu***cks and *highs." ~ American film critic Pauline Kael.
