Okay, my last post was pretty hardcore political. Well, as political as movie news gets. You ready for a nice refreshing light weight gossip post?

Salman and the IMPPA Disagree
Yesterday I reported that rumor that Salman called Raj Thackeray to ask for mercy for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees for the good of the film industry. Today, following up on that, Salman really really put his neck on the line.
More Industry News! John Abraham Caught in the Middle!!!
Tiny little news, but worth it because it gives me an excuse to put up a pretty pretty John Abraham photo. Which, frankly, is probably why Bollywoodhungama posted it too.
Last Minute Song Plagiarism Post!
So I just had a friend over to hang out and watch songs and watch me make pumpkin bread. And I was showing her a bunch of the stuff I had discovered since the last time she came over. And she recognized one of the songs!
Sunshine Blogger Post
I know nothing about this and had never heard of it, but moviemavengal passed it on to me and told me to answer these questions, and I trust moviemavengal! So I will do my best (plus, helps me get to a thousand posts before the year is out!).
Happy National Coffee Day!!!
I am celebrating by NOT having coffee! Because it’s Thursday, and I never have coffee on Thursdays. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, yes. And then I detox for two days, sleep all weekend, and get back on the horse again on Monday. Anyway, I thought it would be a good topic for a theme songs post.
Fawad’s Not Coming Back, Arjun and Varun Team Up, Zeenat’s Son is Injured!
It’s official, Fawad’s not coming back for the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil promotions. Probably a good idea.
New Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Song!
Thank you Karan for not saying what time you would post this one exactly, and therefore not making me stay up all night waiting! Much better to have it just suddenly appear in my twitter feed.
Chitram: Hey! What Was Up With That Last Half Hour!!!
I was sailing along through this movie, dum-de-dum, more or less seeing where it was going, and then BAM! The last half hour hits, and everything changes! Such an odd experience! Kind of like when you miss the last step on the stairs.
Ready for a Bunch of Unreliable Unconfirmed Rumors?
I’m tired of sifting through the news to find the stories that are confirmed and reliable and also seem believable based on previous news stories! I’m going wild and reporting a bunch of completely unverified stuff that people made up because it sounds good!
Another Birthday! Political This Time!
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.
Chandrettan Evideya: Billed as a Comedy about Infidelity, Actually a Comedy about Reincarnation!
This was a so-so movie. Unless I am missing some deeper level. But I am pretty sure it just made its way onto my list because of Namitha Pramod, no deeper reason. It’s a fine movie, with a couple of original ideas, but that’s kind of it.
Happy Birthday Lataji!!! (How are there so many birthdays in 2 days!!!)
I just finished my three part Yash Chopra post, and then Ranbir Kapoor pops up, and now Lata! Gah! Stop being born, people! Anyway, Lata will have to be content with 16 reasons I love her for the 16 notes in the Indian scale. I’m not doing another 80+ after I just did it for Yashji.
Global Box Office Report: Such a Strange Pink Pattern!
Let’s be real, was anyone expecting any kind of a hit for Banjo? No, right? No matter how many songs you release or how hard you promote it, no one is turning out for a Ritiesh and Nargis starrer.
Happy Birthday Ranbir Kapoor!
Happy Birthday Ranbir! I’m not giving you 33 reasons, because you haven’t been in enough movies for me to come up with them! Plus, I am worn out after my 84 for Yash Chopra. But, I will give you 12! And maybe, if Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is really good, you will earn 34 for next year.
Happy Birthday Yash Chopra! Part 3, my final reasons to love you (plus Ravi’s Birthday too): 55-84
No one is reading these posts, but I don’t care! It’s Yash Chopra’s birthday, I love Yash Chopra, and watching his songs and reading about him for this just cheers me up. Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.
Sushmita and Mosquitos, Siddharth Roy Kapur and the Presidency, Karan and Protestors, and BAHUBALI!!!!
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.
Happy Birthday Yash Chopra Part 2! 32 through 55!
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 here and Part 3 here.
Happy Birthday Yashji!!! (And Ravi) Part 1! 1-32 Reasons!
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.
Happy Birthday Dev Anand!
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!
Monday Morning Question Post! If You Still Have Anything to Ask Me, Ask Here!
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!
Ready to be in Awe of Corporate Stupidity? Oh, Also, Casting News!
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.
Pink Review (SPOILERS!): Really Really Nailed the Landing!!!
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!
Kirti Kulhari and Sajid Nadiawala Agree With Me!
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.
Pink Review (NO SPOILERS): I Finally Saw It! It Lived Up To Expectations!
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!
