Vayanadan Thampan(1978)

Malayalam movie starring Kamal Hassan that was dubbed into Hindi and re-released as Pyasa Shaitan in the 80s in an attempt to, I assume, capitalize on Kamal's post-Ek Duje Ke Liye popularity. I saw a trailer for Pyasa Shaitan sometime last year and noticed that, ahem, "extra"(read: naughty) scenes had been added to spice up the flick. They looked so out-of-place, and it was obvious that they were filmed during a different decade.

I started watching this a few minutes ago, but(aside: Wow! Kamal looks great in that shot! I wish I could cap it)I think I'm going to save it for later viewing because my head hurts(damn rainy weather!), and it's difficult to concentrate.
