And who wrote that tagline? They could
have saved themselves the space and said:
Now to actually set a Mission Impossible in India... that would be pretty impressive. It seems only Sacha Baron Cohen got the memo that plots involving nuclear weapons might possibly take place in modern day Hollywood without Russia as the one and only back drop. Hate to break it to the Hollywood movie action types, but the Cold War ended, oh, several decades ago. And there are much more frightening scenarios out there: North Korea, Pakistan (I'm cringingly interested in what Republic of Wadiya might come up with. They say he's talking about Syria, but really, with all that bhangra music in the trailer?), India... If we wasted the 15 minutes of Mission Impossible in Bombay tracking a Cold War era satellite, well folks, I'd say we've missed the boat on the possibilities for nuclear terror in South Asia. But in the end, we did get Tom Cruise at the Taj. I guess that counts for something?
