Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week! I was up way way too late last night, but I am proud to say I have now almost finished my entire Friends rewatch. So you get to entertain me and keep me awake today on our Wednesday watching post!
Besides last night, I also finished Andaz which I have been meaning to watch for years and finally did. This is the value of the Friday Classics post! Gets me caught up. And I watched 3 films in theaters of the weekend, which was exhausting and I will probably never do again.
For reading, I am zipping through Ramesh Menon’s Siva Purana thanks to recommendations by Asmita and Datablue. It’s a very easy read, and very sexy. And also teaches me the Puranas, which were a huge gap in my knowledge base (although I do have the massive hardcover Gods and Goddesses ACK. But this feels a little more grown-up. In many ways).
And for thinking, I am thinking about how I have to see a big release every week for the next 4 weeks (Munna Michael, Mubarakan, Jab Harry Met Sejal, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha) and I am going to be exhausted at the end of it and just hoping for a break. Which won’t come until Republic Day, fall is exhausting!
Oh, and if you want something else to talk about, I will repeat my question from Monday: of all the married couples you have seen in Indian film, who would you most like to hang out with? And who would you least like to hang out with? I am sticking with Anil and Tabu from Biwi No. 1 as best, and Rani and Aamir from the start of Talaash as worst.
(Bonus question in honor of finishing Friends, is Akshay good casting for Rishard? Or should it be someone else?)
