At the risk of sounding like a bad storyteller, Kingdom of Dreams is magical place..a place that has been created to showcase works of a particular type of art, i.e. art relating to or emanating from Bollywood -- from the gawdy colours and designs on the facade of each structure to the musical, Zangoora, which is being showcased in Nautanki Mahal (part of the Kingdom), everything screams Bollywood.

Zangoora is a story of a prince, raised as a gypsy, who eventually returns to rule his kingdom. The story is told using extraordinary sets, lighting and foot-tapping, energetic Bollywood numbers. My companions and I thoroughly enjoyed the show -- there were two acts with an intermission in between, during which we nibbled on some Chicken Boti and Amritsari Fish at the bar, and washed them down with Kingfisher beer and Sula Sauvignon Blanc. The show is highly recommended -- whether you are a visitor or a resident. Tickets can be booked online on the Kingdom site.

At the end of the show, the dancers in the show pulled us to the floor to join them and we did...after all, it's not everyday that you're given the opportunity to act like an "extra" on the set of a Bollywood film!
