I thought I was done with birthdays! And then I saw #ShaheedBhagatSingh trending on twitter. So, one more post! But since this isn’t really film person, it’s just going to be a quick thing.
I thought there was news today, but then I dug into it, and yeah, there’s no news. It’s just rumors and suppositions with famous names thrown in to make me click the link. Oh well.
Okay, let’s do this! Possibly nobody but me cares as much about Yashji, but come on! The man invented a whole genre of film! Founded the only studio still on firm financial ground! Created generations of stars! He deserves 84 reasons to love him on his birthday. Even if they are mostly songs. Part 1…
It’s Yash Chopra’s 84th birthday! And also Ravi Chopra’s birthday. Huh. Uncle and nephew with the same birthday. Well, not the same year, but the same date. Part 2 here and Part 3 here.
I know, he’s dead. But that’s no reason not to celebrate his life! Especially because Dev himself seems like someone who was always down for a celebration. So, here are 12 random reasons to celebrate!
This is the third time I’ve done this (first post here and second here), and I am hoping you aren’t out of questions yet!
I almost feel bad, I’ve been putting up so many posts beating the war drums against the corporate run studios, it kind of seems mean. But then, they’re corporations! They don’t have feelings.
I already put up my no spoilers review, this is the review with spoilers, assuming you have already seen the movie. Or can’t quite bring yourself to watch it but still kind of want to know what happens. In that case, I am here for you!
Ha! I am both artistically and financially correct! Kirti agrees with my Pink review, and Sajid agrees with my theory as to the future of Indian film studios.
I’d heard good things about it, from people I trusted (like Anupama Chopra), so I finally gave in and watched. And you know, it was good! Just like everyone said!
It’s not nearly as egregious as choosing Jeans (seriously, what were they thinking?) or choosing nothing the year Pinjar and Tehzeeb and Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon came out, but it’s still got that little tinge of “wait, what?” which always comes with these announcements.
One of the people I follow on youtube just posted a new video that I really liked, so then I dug up a few more videos I like, and voila! A post! I’m gonna get to a thousand within my first year of blogging if it kills me!
I just watched this movie for the 4th time, and it is still So. Good! And such a hard sell! I’ve seen it 4 times partly because people will only watch it if I sit next to them and force them to. Because the title alone really isn’t enough to sell it.
Not big news, really. Okay, a couple of these things might be big news. But mostly it is just confirmation that things are moving along in the direction we already thought they were headed.
Somehow, it is both rainy and overcast, and also 90 degrees out today. And Banjo isn’t playing anywhere near me, so I don’t get to see a new movie tonight. And generally life is bleak and depressing. So, here is a random collection of recent news items that make me happy. Feel free to bookmark…
The full Ae Dil Hai Mushkil trailer is out! And it’s basically the same as the two song teasers we already saw! No big surprises.
Happy Birthday Kumar Sanu! I knew the name and was kind of not that excited, but then I looked at your playlist! You sang EVERYTHING!!!! Totally deserve a birthday post! I’ll go with 16 reasons to love you, for the Indian scale (it is 16, right?).
As I have mentioned already, I just re-activated my Netflix discs and immediately requested every Malayalam film they have available. Which means I am going to end up with some stinkers. This one wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t very good, or interesting. But not quite bad enough that I could justify stopping in the…
If I could find that “Vote” song from Classmates on youtube, I would post it for this message. Don’t forget to Vote! More importantly, don’t forget to register!!! The election is weeks away, but the registration deadline in your state may be coming up soon. This link will give you information for your state.
Totally missed this holiday! And it’s almost as much fun to find songs for as International day of Dance! I think I’m going to just lean hard into the Shanti theme to start with, maybe I’ll try to do something more meaningful next year. Also, maybe next year I will remember on the actual day.
The Shivaay love song just came out. And, thank goodness, I think it explains what’s going on with one of the three very very young heroines. And possibly one of the other ones as well.
This was such a good movie. SUCH A GOOD MOVIE!!! All these cool concepts and visuals and ideas! Really, the only flaw was that there were too many good ideas, it was kind of overwhelming.
I know I’ve been cranking through a ton of non-Hindi reviews lately, and I feel kind of bad, because not everyone has seen those movies. Plus, it’s Kareena’s birthday! So, what better day to talk about my favorite Kareena movie?
Happy Birthday Bebo! Let’s see if I can come up with a full 36 reasons to love you! I think I probably can.
This is so cool! It’s like I can control the universe! We’ll know for sure if there is an announcement of a new SRKajol movie in the next few days. Or a new movie about horses.
