Braco - scientifically documented results of the water experiment (nowhere to be found)

In this post they reffer to >The experiment was made with a special instrument called bioscope, showing that water changed its frequency after being in the same room where Braco was gazing.

Reference can be found also on his page, but I can not find single article about this breakthrough discovery about Bracos's gaze. Any help? :D

Top 100 Indian Movies of All Time - Mera Naam Joker

After the tremendous success of his biggest blockbuster “Sangam”, the Showman of Indian Cinema “Raj Kapoor” envisioned bringing to life his grandest and most personal work of art “Mera Naam Joker". RK took the next 6 years to make his most “Meta” movie as he told a tale of Bollywood's Joker in the circus of life. This was a movie about his own life, love and heartbreak for all to see. His labor of love unfortunately bombed at the Indian box office and almost left him and RK Studios in ruin. The movie was definitely ahead of its time as with time, India eventually fell in love with his piece de resistance.

Mera Naam Joker (1970)
Directed by Raj Kapoor
Produced by Raj Kapoor
Starring - Raj Kapoor, Dharmendra, Simi Garewal, Rishi Kapoor, Kseniya Ryabinkina, Padmini, Manoj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar and Dara Singh
Written by K.A. Abbas
Music by Shankar Jaikishan
Budget/Box Office - Rs 1 Crore/Rs 1 Crore in India (Rs 18 Crore worldwide)
Awards - 3 National Awards and 5 Filmfare Awards including Best Director and Music
IMDB Rating - 8/10 
RT Rating - 85%
My Rating - 10/10

The movie created in 3 chapters representing 3 stages of RK’s life as a kid, youth and adult brought together an amazing star cast of Manoj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Dharmendra, Dara Singh, Simi, Padmini and Russian Ballerina Kseniya Ryabinkina. The first chapter is about RK’s adolescent infatuation with one of his school’s Anglo Indian teachers which on screen introduced his son Rishi as the young Raj who falls head over heel for his teacher Miss Mary played sensually by a bold Simi Garewal. The second chapter shows his pure love with an angel from another world played by real life Ballerina Kseniya, who breaks his heart and goes out of his life completely. This represents his youth romance with the Iconic, Pure and Brilliant Nargis who disappeared from his life after her marriage to Sunil Dutt. The third chapter represents his love with Padmini who initially presents herself as a guy and as her true form is revealed, RK falls in love with her. Padmini stands in for her professional dancer-actress rival Vyjayanthimala, who RK also fell in love with during Sangam, their love triangle with Rajendra Kumar. In Sangam he gets the girl in the end but her heart always belonged to Rajendra Kumar and hence in Mera Naam Joker, Padmini marries a character played by Rajendra Kumar.

The 3 chapters of the movie were released separately in

Top 100 Bollywood Movie Soundtracks Review - Mera Naam Joker

After the tremendous success of his biggest blockbuster “Sangam”, the Showman of Indian Cinema “Raj Kapoor” envisioned his grandest and most personal work of art “Mera Naam Joker". RK took the next 6 years to make his most “Meta” movie as he brought a tale of Bollywood's Joker in the circus of life to the silver screen. This was a movie about his own life, love and heartbreak for all to see. The movie created in 3 chapters representing 3 stages of RK’s life as a kid, youth and adult brought together an amazing star cast of Manoj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Dharmendra, Dara Singh, Simi, Padmini and Russian Ballerina Kseniya Ryabinkina. The first chapter is about RK’s adolescent infatuation with one of his school’s Anglo Indian teachers which on screen introduced his son Rishi as the young Raj who falls head over heel for his teacher Miss Mary played sensually by a bold Simi Garewal. The second chapter shows his pure love with an angel from another world played by real life Ballerina Kseniya, who breaks his heart and goes out of his life completely.

In Sangam he gets the girl in the end but her heart always belonged to Rajendra Kumar and hence in Mera Naam Joker, Padmini marries a character played by Rajendra Kumar.

The 3 chapters of the movie were released separately in Russia but together in India making it a 4+ hr movie with 2 intervals. The duration of the movie, the multiple actress love story arcs which all resulted in the hero on the losing end didnt excite the audience enough as the movie bombed at the box office and almost ended RK studios and Raj Kapoor’s career. His grand vision of returning with a second part of “Mera Naam Joker” for which he had recorded a few songs and selected Sharmila Tagore and Sadhana would remain an unrealized dream and get shelved permanently. The movie would win big at the Filmfare and National Awards but become the last time RK would direct himself in a movie. The era of the writer - producer - actor - director would come to an end with this movie which would achieve cult stat
