I know I know, you are sick of Jab Harry Met Sejal. Or, alternatively, you love it and are depressed that it will be ending soon. Either way, I am sure you have opinions what I should do next with my post-JHMS life. And here is where you get to help me decide! Oh, and also do your usual Wednesday report on what you have been watching and reading and thinking this week.
Reading, finally finished the Ramesh Menon Shivapuram, debating whether I go back to the interminable Confessions of a Thug, or Anusual, the scandalous autobiography of Anu Aggarwal.
And thinking, thinking about dogs! I promised myself that once I got a new apartment, and finished unpacking, I could think about a dog. So that’s what I’m thinking about. Seems like a hassle to have to go outside 3 times a day to walk it, but maybe that is exactly the kind of hassle that would be good for me since otherwise I am just going to work and coming home and sitting on my couch and blogging for 8 hours.
Now, your ideas for what I should cover next! Which, of course, I have the right to ignore for any reason ranging from “that movie is impossible to find with subtitles” to “if I write about that, I am going to get scary angry hate comments” to “whoa, even I am not sick enough to write that fantasy!”. Okay, that last one is unlikely.
(click the links to read examples of what I have done in the past)
Hindi Film 101: you can suggest general concept posts (like Nepotism), scandalous family histories (this all started with The Kapoors), or kind of random case study history of film stuff (Shahrukh’s filmography in chronological order). Or some other category I haven’t thought of yet. Anything! Anything at all! Hit me!
Scene By Scenes: Someday, in the distant future, I will finish DDLJ. What should I do next? Or, alternatively, what should I throw in now just for variety every once in awhile?
Silly Sunday Speculative: Any character you feel deserves a happy ending they didn’t get in the original film (Siddharth in Rang De Basanti)? Any side character that deserves their own plot (Ajit in Mughal-E-Azam)? Any film that is just a total disaster and needs to be fixed (Jab Tak Hain Jaan, looking at you!)? Or, any classic film/book/comic strip/what have you that needs a remake (Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Persuasion)? Any actor couple that should have hot steamy love scenes together and never got that change (Arjun Rampal and Shahrukh)? I am HERE FOR YOU!!!!! Ask, and I will provide.
I’m excited! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
