My Year of Prakash Raj

Some people spend a year
cooking Julia Child's recipes, or following all of the rules in the Bible, or reading books by people who spent a year doing something. My quest is to watch the 200-some films of South Indian character-actor-extraordinaire, Prakash Raj. (It'll probably take more than a year... and I'll post about some Prakash-less films here as well.)

Frequently Hissed Questions:

What is this all about?
Nag Panchami Film Fesssstival

Where will the posts be collected? I'll do a wrap-up post here in late August.

Is there a twitter hashtag?
#nagfilmfest seems like a short enough one. (Unless you are trying to steer clear of  Nagarjuna superfans...)

To kick things off, enjoy "Naag Panchami Aayi," from the Kannada film Maha Shakti Maya starring Pandhari Bai.
