Meh, I still don't like Lagaan. I wince every time he says "Neptune's beard!" That's a really stupid curse.
I dunno-- is it any sillier than "Great Krypton!" or "Great Caesar's Ghost!"? Actually most curses are silly once you deconstruct them.
Well, those were used in shows or comics that were sillier/cornier all around, so they didn't feel as jarring in that context. It's also just that Lagaan uses it so damn often, at the drop of a hat. Combined with the way Yuri Lowenthal delivers the line, it just makes me wince every time I hear it.
