When the lights went down, and the volume came up, audiences got serious about listening. I am no expert head-counter, but I would estimate that an hour after the show began, about 80 per cent of bums were in seats. Not a sellout after all. But not the disaster political critics were predicting. Still, when taxpayer money is on the line, scrutiny is rightly intense.

The moment the evil uncle clunks granny on the head and makes off with the family fortune, leaving the heroine a pauper? Bollywood.
