The Fastest Kiwi
Burt Munro-a man with an incredible spirit, way past his prime years. He finds it rather insulting that anybody would address him as Sir or Mister-he fancies being called Burt. A bike enthusiast-he simply adores his Indian (his bike). In his neighbours opinion, he is a maniac-experimenting away noisily in the wee hours of the day. Burt’s entire life revolves around his insatiable thirst for speed-evident by the self made pistons which he terms as offerings to the God of speed. He always passes a word of advice to anybody he catches smoking-telling them it aint good. You’re born with one pair of lungs, so why destroy them? And he doesn’t fancy beer either-now how many biker crazy dudes have you come across who would turn down beer eh? He never hesitates to race with younger blokes...he believes youth is within oneself. And boy does everybody respect him in his village in New Zealand. His lone dream is to fly to Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah to show the world that his Indian is the fastest one. The rough American attitude barely dampens his enthusiasm or humor. He wriggles out of every situation using his cheerful manners. I won’t be telling anymore about this guy-go watch the movie- Worlds fastest Indian....and no, it’s not about Narain Kartikeyan. The tagline goes something like this-Based on one hell of a true story! Starring Anthony Hopkins the movie is simply mind blowing! See it to believe it!
