2010 Week: Best Party Songs of 2010, Ranked

I considered “Best Item Songs”, but that’s really just “Sheila” versus “Munni Badnaam” and there is only one clear answer there (“Sheila”). So these are all the party songs, including Item Songs, that I think are worthy of remembering from 2010.

2010 Week: I Hate Luv Storys, Remember When Imraan Khan Was Charming?

He’s still charming I guess, but he’s not like professionally charming. After his 2 year paternity leave (which I continue to find RIDICULOUS) he doesn’t seem to have much interest in returning to work. But back in 2010, I had a crazy crush on him and he was a delight.

2010 Discussion Post: My Name is Khan, What Made You Ugly Cry and What Made You Giggle?

Such an odd movie. I’ve yet to show it to someone who didn’t end up a sobbing broken mess by the end. Or to someone who didn’t giggle a bit at a scene here or there. The odd thing is, the “sobbing broken” moments and the “giggle” moments seem slightly different for each person.

Discussion Post (Remember, A Christmas Card is on the Line! COMMENT!): Rank SRK Jodis from 2010 to 2019

This should be a gimme, surely! Everyone has to have an opinion on this, right? Say something, let me know you are alive! Not that I am anyone to talk, I know what’s happening, I spent time this week buying and mailing Christmas cards and putting up decorations and so on. But still, can’t we take a little time to talk about meaningless stuff on the internet even during the holiday season?

Best Hindi Love Songs of 2010, Ranked

Yes, I am doing it, I am taking a stand and making a judgment call! These are the best love songs of 2010 and everything else is useless TRASH! Not only that, I’m even ranking them. Disagree if you dare. (oh, and there will probably be a party song post later, so don’t freak out because “Sheila Ki Jawani” is missing or something. Just pure love songs)

2010 Week! My Name is Khan, a Very Very Dark Film and a Surprisingly Good Film

This is a very good deep review that did not get many readers or comments the first time around. I’m okay if the same is true this time. It’s a dark dark movie. I don’t want DCIB to become a dark place, so if you do comment, try to find a brightness in it somewhere. For instance, “this is a dark movie, and I am so proud that Shahrukh Khan was one of the first people to speak out about Islamophobia in America”. Or just keep it superficial, “this movie is so frustrating because there is so much well done in it, but the plot just makes no sense.”

Good Newwz (zzzzzzzzzzzzzz) Trailer! I’m Not Thrilled

Well, this is a disappointment! Not based on the poster, it’s perfectly in line with what I expected from that, but based on the initially casting and topic announcement I had higher hopes. Oh well, all of life is just a series of disappointments (it’s overcast today and I haven’t had my coffee yet).

Housefull 4 Review (SPOILERS): Everything Gets Better Once Rana Duggabatti Shows Up!

Yes, this silly silly movie that released weeks ago is getting the full no spoiler/spoiler review treatment from me. Whatever, I had fun with it! And you can watch it if you want once it hits streaming and then come back and read these reviews. Or if you already caught it in theaters, read this review to talk about your response to the complexities of the narrative.

TGIF: Pick Your Favorite Juhi Chawla Anarkali!

Hey, a real TGIF! In honor of Juhi week, lets look at lots and lots of pictures. Pictures are fun, pictures are easy, pictures are something I can do between many many work phone calls (4 co-workers are at a conference, one is home sick, one is home moving house, and one is here with me trying to handle the entire office on our own. Oh, and Albie Dog is here, trying to be helpful).

Hum Hain Rahe Pyar Ki Pre-Review Post: Recasting! With a Gender Flip! Prithviraj-Rani, Tell Me You Wouldn’t Watch That!

I bowed to the pressure and rewatched it last night to prepare for a review, and it is so much cuter than I remembered. More importantly, it is just BEGGING for a modern day north-south remake.
