“Vinod Khanna: Masculinity So Adaptable”

The Gutter’s own Beth Watkins offers a memoriam for Vinod Khanna at Beth Loves Bollywood with “Vinod Khanna: Masculinity So Adaptable.” “In the palette of fillum masculinity circa 1980 that ranges from petulant man-child to aggressive, absurd machismo to ideals-based philosophizing to starry-eyed lover, he tapped into points in between in different ways depending on the role and film, always believably. When he (or the director) chooses, he’s as soulful as Amitabh Bachchan, as swaggering as Feroz Khan, as twinkly-eyed charming as Shashi Kapoor, and as come-hither as Dharmendra.”
