1. Oldboy, the Korean Movie. Alexander Dumas wrote the Count of Monte Cristo, which has the same premise of imprisonment and revenge, also the name of a track from Oldboy. Sanjay Dutt, played the lead in Zinda, inspired by the same; and Ella Wheeler WIlcox, "Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone."

2. Clint Eastwood. Opened for Mitt Romney, directed the movies Letters from Iwo Jima and Flags of Our Fathers.

3. Smile Pinki, the Academy Award winning documentary; features the work of Smile Train and Ossur provided the blades for 'Oscar' Pistorius.

4. The only two Bollywood movies where, umm how should we put it... the leading ladies bared their bosoms on camera, and the censor board was okay with it.

The story of Oldboy has echoes of Alexandre Dumas' classic tale The Count of Monte Cristo.
sanjay Dutt's movie Zinda is a remake of Oldboy.
The opening lines in Ella's poem "Solitude" are recited in Oldboy.
