Oooo, that headline sounds so fancy! “GMT” and all that! To make it simpler, 2/5/2017 1am Greenwich Mean time is 7pm 2/4/2017 Chicago time (where I am). It is 2pm Sydney time (I think), and various other times all over Australia (Australia is weird! 13 TIME ZONES!!!!!). And 10am in Japan. And 6:30am India time (sorry Indian readers!).
I hope many of you are awake and interested and able to join in! All you have to do is go to twitter and login and type into the search box “#HSSH” That will let you see what everyone else is tweeting with our hashtag (and possibly some other random strangers who are using the same one).
And to join in the conversation, just tweet anything you want with the hashtag “#HSSH” attached.
I will give a 15, 10, and 5 minute countdown to when to start the film, and then another tweet when it is time to hit play. And I will tweet out a bathroom/interval break point. However, this is a movie that it probably won’t be hardship to miss a few minutes of.
Hum Saath Saath Hain got 3 votes to Main Hoon Na‘s 2 and a half and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai‘s 1 on my voting post. I am kind of glad it won, partly because it is super easy to stream (on Netflix and Hulu and Amazon Prime, last time I checked). But also because it is a really good movie to watch-while-typing. Moves at a nice glacial pace, and the plot is super predictable (just wiki the Ramayana, specifically Bharat’s story, and you can get a preview of the whole thing).
(With a little Krishna and Mahabharata thrown in!)
And it’s also fun! Lots of big song numbers, lots of love stories, lots of family drama. And lots and lots of stars! Salman, Saif, Karisma, Tabu, plus Sonali Bendre and Mohnish Behl! Oh, and Alok Nath and Reema Lagoo.
Believe me, you’ll like it! And I bet you will have plenty to say about it too!
Hope to see you all in the twitterverse!
