Way back when I woke up this morning, I saw the new Raees poster. And then I didn’t exactly forget about it (how could I? It’s my new computer wallpaper!), but I forgot to do a blog post on it. Until now!
Woot woot! Poster and a new tagline!
Super sexy, right? The beard could be a hair thicker (ha! “A hair thicker!” I made a pun! And then I made it uncool by pointing it out). But the sweaty-bloody-fighter look is working for me.
And, of course, the gazing-intensely-at-her-while-foreheads-touch is a classic. Way way hotter than a kiss.
Tagline, also hot: “You are the flame, memory never stops…..I am still your moth”.
UPDATE: A Nice commentator improved on my translation: “If you are the flame, remember….I too am a moth”
First reference that pops up with that quote, by the way, is a Khiladi song. Don’t know if that is what they were going for, by the way, but if it is, it’s a nice little period-but-not-period touch. Subtly reminding us of the late 80s/early 90s.
Although, does this mean Mahira might die? With the whole “memory” thing? I don’t want her to die! I like her! Also, by the way, I am now 4 episodes in to Humsafar on Netflix. The film quality is bugging me (same reason I have a hard time with some American TV shows from the 80s), but the plot is excellent. And, so far, Mahira Khan is pretty great too. So I don’t want her to die!
But I would be okay if the meaning was less “death” and more “after all this time, I still love you.” That would be cool.
(Like this! Also, I never thought a Shahrukh poster would remind me of a Reba McEntire song)
