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.)

Round-up for March 2011

Monthly Prakash Raj Movie Total (March, 2011): 7
Overall Prakash Raj Movie Total (as of 3/31/11): 79
Any month when I watch more than five Prakash Raj films is a big month. I'm that much closer to my goal of watching 250 (and counting ) films. However, it takes me much longer to write it all up for the blog.
