Warwick Davis cameos in Bhojpuri film Chingari!

One thing you don’t expect to see in a trailer for a Bhojpuri language film is Warwick Davis, but that’s just what is happening here in the trailer for Chingari! Besides Warwick Davis, Karl Pilkington also appears. He’s the host of An Idiot Abroad, a travel show on Sky in the UK, which from what I’ve seen is him complaining non-stop. There is even a show dedicated to them going over and filming their scenes! Davis will play a journalist who does a documentary on the Bihar police. From the trailer, you can see there is a bad dude threatening the town and the police chief is reluctant to do anything.

And if you are wondering, yes Warwick Davis dances.

Chingari is directed by Shrey Shrivastav. There was a completely different Chingari (in Kannada language) that came out last year that is basically a remake of Taken.

The classic work by Douglas Adams finally comes to the silver screen. Twenty years or so it took, with pitfalls all the way. It was originally a radio play, then a book, then sequels, miniseries, video games, and towels followed. Finally, after years of stalling, the movie has been realized. Douglas Adams died, but the film continued onward. He did manage to contribute a lot toward the script before he left us. I myself read the books in high school years ago, but had not read them recently, so they were not fresh on my mind. I did not want to constantly compare the film to the books, so I stayed away from them until after the show. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, or HG2G as the slang goes (Or even H2G2, which is being used as well as typos rapidly expand their stranglehold upon the English language) the movie has some big shoes to fill and big expectations to meet.

The Leprechaun series reaches new heights as we venture into the final frontier. Star Warwick Davis is no stranger to being in a galaxy far, far away, and soon makes the rest of the cast regret their decision to ever cross a leprechaun and his gold. One of the first of the horror series to have a sequel set in space in the far future, this one is tongue and cheek over the top, completely borrows from several movies, throws in almost every sci-fi cliche imaginable, and yet somehow manages to be an enjoyable movie. How this was accomplished is a mystery to me. The fact that it was pulled off is one of the miracles of modern times, or maybe it was just the luck of the Irish. Why is the Leprechaun in space in the first place, you may ask? The answer is a closely guarded secret. Because it doesn’t exist.
