Happy Diwali everyone! And what better way to celebrate than with…

KATILON KE KAATIL (1981)
Having recently been enlightened as to the existence of a Bollywood ninja movie, you go to your little website forum and theorize that, given the popularity of kungfu films in India and the proliferation of Bruce Lee imitators and crappy “Bruceploitation” films during the 1970s, there was no way Bollywood didn’t produce at least one film cashing in on the death and popularity of Bruce Lee. After proffering this notion, however, subsequent searches for Indian Bruce Lee exploitation films yield no results. This does not sway you from your belief, of course, and given how poor the quality and variety of coverage for Indian cult films is, it hardly surprises you. But it does cause you to put your search for such a film on the back burner. And then, one day you are emailing back and forth at work with your friend Beth about Mithun Chakraborty’s film Dance Dance. You search for, find, and play a clip from the film on YouTube, and then, out of the corner of your eye after the clip has finished and YouTube is displaying those “if you liked this, check this one out” recommendations, you see something titled “Dharmendra vs Bruce Li.”

But wait! There’s more!!!

Turkish Star Wars 2 (Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam’in Oglu)
That’s right! Cuneyt Arkin returns in a sequel to the movie that made him a cult superstar in America. Unfortunately, this time around, the movie is an intentional slapstick comedy, and pretty much everything folks loved about the original Turkish Star Wars…well, not so much, this time around.
