Never in Indian cinema has the course of true love run smooth. But now Bollywood, famous for its sentimental musicals, is hoping to woo audiences with its weirdest romance yet — based on the life of Hitler.“It will be a romance but not in the typical sense,” Rakesh Ranjan Kumar, the director of Dear Friend Hitler, told The Times. He added that the film “aims to capture the personality of Adolf Hitler”.“As a leader he was successful. I want to show why did he lose as a human being? What were the problems, what were the issues, what were his intentions?”The prospect of a kitsch Bollywood biopic based on the Führer’s relationship with his long-term mistress, Eva Braun, invites comparison with Springtime for Hitler, the fictional Nazi musical at the centre of Mel Brooks’s Broadway and film comedy The Producers.
