It’s not what you did, son. It’s who you did it to.
– Russian mob chief Viggo Tarasov to son Joseph in John Wick.
What’s common to Bollywood and Hollywood garbage?
Ha ha ha, elementary my dear kiddo.
Both have a strong Indian connection.
While the details of Indian connections to Bollywood garbage are no secret, few know of the Indian links to Hollywood junk.
Hollywood’s latest piece of garbage John Wick is co-produced by Raj Singh, a Silicon Valley millionaire of Indian origin who’s lately been pouring money into several English films.
I don’t know about you but it warms the cockles of my heart to learn that be it Hollywood, Bollywood or Kollywood the desi connection to junk is ever close at hand.
John Wick is directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, and ‘written’ by Derek Kolstad.
Unalloyed garbage though it is largely on account of its simplistic plot, John Wick has a certain endearing appeal to it.
The charm of this piece of shit owes to an amalgam of four things – Lead star Keanu Reeves cast as our eponymous hero John Wick, Swedish actor Mikael Nyquist who plays the Russian mobster Viggo, pleasing photography and a hard-hitting revenge drama that has the blood and action going non-stop.
For me, the adrenalin rush started when the Russian mobster’s son Joseph (Alfie Allen) lusts for John Wick’s sleek and powerful 1969 Mustang at the gas station.
A stupid fuck who lacks the focus, commitment and will of his father Viggo or John, the young punk Joseph refuses to take no for an answer.
