AGFA Videodreams: AATANK

Prem Lalwani & Desh Mukherjee, India, 1996, AGFA, Cult

AGFA Videodreams is a series of tape-sourced preservations for late-nite voyages to other worlds. Only in theaters.

AATANK—better known as "the Bollywood JAWS"—is a lovely outsider extravaganza, filled with melodrama, songs, flesh-eating dogs, and one of the most unreal fake sharks you'll ever seen. Mostly filmed in the mid-1980s and completed a decade later, this cut-and-paste miracle also features bizarre visual discontinuities and a visibly aging star who changes appearance from scene to scene.

Preserved from a bootleg VHS with English subtitles.
