'Defending the truth is not something one does out of a sense of duty or to allay guilt complexes, but is a reward in itself.' - Simon de Beauvoir

For a long time now, I have been wanting to put my forum to some use. Starting today, I am creating a collection of clips from popular media (TV shows, Films, Music videos) where there is some kind of reference to Chess.

1. It must have been love - Roxette

Watch from 2:48 - 2:52

31 July, 2008

2. Chess scene from Choti Si Baat

A clip from one of my favourite Indian movies.

Watch from 3:17 - 5.05 (Grandmaster Klotosov :))

Of course you can watch the whole clip for a glimpse of 1970s Bombay.

3. The famous chess scene from The Thomas Crown Affair

This would easily qualify for some other collections as well.

4. Chess scene from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge

One of Indian Cinema's biggest hits.

Watch from 8.00 - 8.40

arifattar: In the olden times, it was common to find the term 'bai' added to first names of women in India. I thought this was some sari-clad woman challenging some Brit chess players in colonial India.
