Indian Hitler film unintentionally funny

Mel Brooks has got to see this one: Somebody has actually made "Springtime for Hitler," but called it "Dear Friend Hitler."

The funniest thing about this film from India is that it's dead-on serious, replete with all Indian actors playing the leaders of the Third Reich.

Reportedly, independence leader Mohandas Gandhi penned two letters to Hitler, one in 1939 and another in 1945, both imploring him to change his ways. Set primarily during Hitler's April bunker days at the end of World War, this peculiar spring-time saga is so preposterous and inept that it would make Brooks' fictional producers seem reputable.

In this uber-awful entity, filmmaker Rakesh Ranjah Kumar intercuts primarily between Gandhi pontificating the ways of peace and Hitler stomping around his bunker.
