Welcome to your general discussion post! Here is where you tell me how many times you have seen Jab Harry Met Sejal, what other SRK movies it inspired you to rewatch, etc. etc. Or, how very little interest you have in Jab Harry Met Sejal and how frustrated you are that the blog has been entirely turned over to that coverage. (sorry-not-sorry, I am getting SO MANY views and comments, and anyway, I love the movie and writing about it makes me happy)
I’ll start! Saw Jab Harry Met Sejal 4 times, which kind of killed last week. Saturday I went over to “help” a friend move. Only I’ve already helped her move twice, so I told her this time I would provide moral support and nothing else. So I sat on her couch and watched the best bits of Bahubalis 1 and 2 on her big screen TV and periodically told her “keep packing! keep packing!” Sunday I went to church (my Dad did the service, it was cool) and then came home and resisted going to see Jab Harry Met Sejal again and instead did laundry and watched Njan. And then Monday night I drove a million miles an hour to catch the 5:30 show of VIP 2 after work. And last night I took a nap.
As for reading, I am almost finished with the Ramesh Menon Siva Purana, which continues to just be a ton of sex and violence. With deep metaphorical meanings I am sure, but the surface is a lot of sex and violence. So if you are into that, highly recommended!
(Turns out, having wild sex in a tent hanging off the side of a mountain is exactly the kind of thing Shiva would do. Only, not with some random white lady, but only with his one true love)
And for thinking, I am thinking about maybe skipping seeing a movie this Friday? Is that crazy? The only thing coming out is Bareilly Ki Barfi, which I am kind of curious about, but I am also kind of curious what it would feel like to get more than 7 hours of sleep. And if I have to skip a Friday, it should be this one, not next one. A Gentleman, I am there first day first show if it kills me.
(Am I crazy, or could this movie provide us with some pale echo of the brilliance that is Bang Bang?)
