On the road in Amsterdam (video previews)

Are you 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 was shot in the streets of Amsterdam, and what a coincidence – Lata Mangehskar happened to be singing on the radio. She is one of the most well-known singers in Bollywood films, and it has been this way 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!



Back in 2014 there  was also one good Bollywood movie shot partially in Amsterdam. The movie was called Queen, and it was starring Kangana Ranaut (She has had the main role also in other nice Bollywood films like Fashion, Woh Lamhe and Tanu weds Manu). Queen was almost a four star movie according to Indivue, but the problem with that movie, like with many other Bollywood movies which have been shot in the 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 in Europe is like, isn’t it?

Anyways, this other video from Amsterdam 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 were totally 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, to get the whole picture of that artist’s life. And to remember to support the living artists as well.
