Rani Week: Hichki! Rani's Safe Return to the Screen

Second to last review of Rani Week! Her most recent film, which was….fine. Not a groundbreaking message, not really worth a rewatch, but fairly painless for one watch in theaters and Rani is still charming.

Hindi Film 101: Anushka Sharma, Angry Feminist Dressed Up As Innocent Harmless Movie Star

Again, I don’t like to do 101s of people who are in the middle of their careers. Things that happen in the future could make everything look different, the most important part of their lives could be still to come. But as of this snapshot moment in time, at the end of 2019, this is how it looks.

Rani Week: Talaash! Rani and Aamir's Last Great Collaberation

Rani is technically just a supporting character, but her role is the secret motive and power and goal of the hero. It’s a fascinating kind of role, she has to be isolated from the rest of the plot, but at the same time not isolated, since her reactions drive Aamir in everything he does for the rest of the plot. It’s her sadness, happiness, strength, sorrow, and so on, that make Aamir angry, confused, dedicated and so on.

Chhapaak Trailer: What is the Purpose of a Trailer? Does This One Fulfill It? I Say NO

Well, this is a bad trailer! Just, as a trailer. Which is a specific kind of art form that can be done poorly or well and have no relationship to the movie it is promoting. Except for indicating the skill and understanding of the producers of the film for the product they have.

News Round-Up: Pick Your Most Wanted YRF Film, Brahmastra Delayed Again (SHOCKING!), and Ayushmann in a Dharma Production

I started out with 8 news stories, and then I actually read them, and they all turned out to be bland and blah. Even these aren’t super exciting, but if PR departments care enough to float stories and watch the response, the least we can do is respond.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me Rani Mukherjee Week?

Happy Monday! Somehow this week has become my busiest stretch of the holiday season (thus the Rani Mukherjee schedule), family in town Tuesday through Saturday plus two events I really want to go to on Monday and Sunday, and then next Monday is the annual white elephant quilting party and gift exchange (the biggest event of my holiday season for the past 8 years), so this ends up being 8 straight days of stuff. Anyway, ask me questions and distract me!
