Bollywood's Bruce Li

No, that's not a typo. After Bruce Lee died, there was what was called the "Bruceploitation" movement in martial arts films, with actors named Bruce Li, Le, Lei, Lie, and many other variations all biting on The Dragon's style and making money off his name. The reason I say this is Bollywood's Bruce Li and not Lee is because the fake Bruces were known for creating fight scenes so laughably bad they achieved a kind of tragicomic gloriousness. Like this scene.

Best Moment: At the 3:40 mark, a random bad guy (maybe the main bad guy, not really sure) randomly abducts what is either a child, a midget, Little Superstar, or a Zuni warrior doll.
