A Twitter User Discovered an Amazing Connection Between 'Psycho', 'Khamosh' and 'Parinda'

This is some next level meta homage!


Updated:August 5, 2016, 11:52 AM IST

Discovering easter eggs in cinema and television is always a delight. Easter eggs and subtle homages are things that make watching and rewatching movies and shows a fulfilling experience and this Twitter user is one who has surely been there.

Twitter user Ubercoolosis discovered a meta-homage of sorts that spans across two levels. The first being a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho playing on a television set in the 1985 Vidhu Vinod Chopra film Khamosh. But Chopra takes this easter egg a notch up when he shows this very scene from Khamosh playing nonchalantly on a TV set in his 1989 film Parinda.

Both the Vidhu Vinod Chopra films are thrillers and it would seem very coincidental if this homage to a cult classic in the genre. Also It takes way more than regular observational skills to see what this guy saw.
