If you’re planning to travel to Amsterdam in Netherlands, then you should definitely read my previous post about Amsterdam called Art and traveltips to Amsterdam.
This video here is from the streets of Amsterdam. A coincidence was that Lata Mangehskar happened to be singing on the radio while shooting this. She is one of the most well-known singers in Bollywood films, and has been for decades.
After this short video of mine you will get to see some more YouTubevideos about Amsterdam and things related, so take a nice posture and enjoy your armchairtrip!
Bollywood movie shot in Amsterdam
Back in 2014 one good Bollywood movie was also partially filmed in Amsterdam. The movie was called Queen, and it was starring Kangana Ranaut. (She has had the leading role in other nice Bollywood films also like Fashion, Woh Lamhe and Tanu weds Manu.)
Queen was almost a four star movie according my taste, but the problem with that movie, like with many other Bollywood movies which have been filmed in West, like Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film Jab Harry met Sejal, was that it was giving a very one-sided view of an European lifestyle. I mean, if I was an Indian watching Bollywood-movies, I might even start to think that all that Westerners do is party, celebrate and seduce each other, one after the other. Of course that is not the case. But, coincidentally, it might even look like that in the real life in Goa and some other touristic places in India. YouTubers really need to see an effort and make more videos to show what the real life is like in Europe, isn’t it?
Anyways, this other video from Amsterdam here tells you about the great painter Vincent Van Gogh. A few months back, in 2017, an animation movie about Van Gogh was released. That movie was called Loving Vincent, and the scenes in that movie had all been painted with oilcolours.
One has to raise one’s hat for the huge amount of work and effort they had put for that movie. Still, I definitely do recommend you to read the great book about Vincent Van Gogh, written by Irving Stone. It will give you the whole picture of that poor artist’s life.
