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.
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.
What an interesting movie! I read that it is supposed to be the start of the new age films, but it actually reminded me a lot more of Aalkkoottathil Thaniye. And other films I’ve seen from that classic 90s/late 80s era.
I put up a post earlier today about the new Mirzya trailer and how it reminded me of “Jaati Hoon Main”. Which just got me in the mood to watch more SRKajol videos!
I really don’t care most of the time about what happens in the American gossip news. I mean, after getting used to the crazy rumors that fly around in the Indian film industry, all the American gossip just seems kind of bland. But there are two stories today that are so big, I actually care…
As you may have noticed, I did not see Pink. It just looks toooooooooooooooo depressing! Plus, I wanted to see a Malayalam movie for Onam. But, even though there is no Pink review here for you, I will still give you Pink box office figures.
Yes, I am going to do a post for every Mirzya song video. Because they are all SO GOOD!!! Much better than the movie as a whole will be, I am sure.
It’s still Mahesh Bhatt’s birthday! I celebrated by finally watching Arth. Well, most of Arth, I think I may have ended up with a slightly edited version.
Happy Birthday Mahesh! 68 years old today! And been directing films for the past 42 of those years. And half your movies are searingly intimate and real and incredibly high quality. And half of them are very low quality. What an interesting balance! Anyway, here’s my traditional 12 reasons I love you!
I tried this last week, and it seemed to work out all right. Of course, that could just be because my long time readers got all their burning questions answered then. But just in case you have more questions, or I have new readers, I’m trying it again!
Okay, not in the same way, but both couples just announced a new move that Aditya and Rani did first. Truly, Adi and Rani are the leading couple of Hindi film!
A news item from Times of India! I am shocked! Usually they are far behind on the news, or far ahead (a nice way of saying “reporting unverified gossip”). But this time they scooped Bollywoodhungama on a big story!
I already put up my non-spoiler quick little review. This is the bigger one with lots of plot details. I won’t be doing the full summary, like I do sometimes, but I will be revealing all the plot high points. So if you are kind of curious about this movie, but not curious enough to…
Smita and Shabanaji were long rumored to be professional rivals, kind of a Juhi-Madhuri thing. No personal component, I never heard about them fighting over the same man or anything like that. But some semi-nasty remarks passed in the press. And now, the feud continues, long after death! I am posting about Smitaji on Shabana’s…
Happy Birthday Shabana Azmi! Did not realize you are the same age as my mother! Here are 18 reasons I love you, in honor of being born on September 18th!
