This topic was suggested by Maria the gaelikaa for the weekly Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium where currently six of us write on the same topic every Friday. This is part of a series of Shakespeare titles that Maria had come up with. I hope that you enjoy my contribution to that effort. The five other bloggers who write regularly are, in alphabetical order, Ashok, gaelikaa, Maxi, and Shackman and The Old Fossil. Do drop in on their blogs and see what their take is on this week’s topic. Since some of them may post late, or not at all this week, do give some allowance for that too!
My whole life has been a comedy of errors which has enabled me to come to this stage when I can look forward to an epitaph that will say “He laughed his way to his death.” I have written enough about those errors and comedies in my earlier blog posts and I would not like to bore my readers with them again. Instead, I propose sharing with my readers a Hindi film with English subtitles that is based on Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. I can assure you that the little over two hours that you will spend will be worth your while. The picture was filmed in 1982 when innocence and gentle character portrayal was still in vogue and so you will find it rather amateurish compared to modern slick productions, but endearing for precisely that quality. You can find more details about the film here.
