Should We Watch a Movie Together in a Week? And If So, Which One?

It’s been awhile since we did a tweet watch.  And I get to have Monday off next week, which makes it easy for me!  So, should we do it again?  And if so, which film should we watch?

Unlike previous times, when I shot for evening American/Chicago time and morning in Australia/Japan/India, this time I can shoot for morning in America/Chicago, and evening in Australia/Japan/India!  We’ll see if that gets us a different group of people.  Who is interested in watching a movie morning of Sept. 4th in America/evening of Sept. 4th everywhere else?  So, about a week from right now exactly when this post is published?

 

And, if you are interested, which of the following are you most interested in.  Remember, we are tweeting the whole time, so it can’t be anything terribly serious or absorbing.  Like, last time, Maine Pyar Kiya turned out to be too involving for us and we all forgot to tweet for a bit.  Also, it should be something that is readily available anywhere in the world, so everyone can easily stream it.  Looking at Netflix and youtube and Amazon, here is what seems to be available:

  1. Ram-Jaane: Not a good movie.  A very very fun movie to watch and make fun off and not pay much attention to.  Available on googleplay, youtube, Amazon, and Netflix (thank you Red Chillies!)

2. Raja Hindustani: A classic!  Which is somehow legitimately good and also legitimately bad at the same time.  I think we can all handle tweeting while watching.  Plus, kissing scene!  On Netflix and google play.

3. Dus: I don’t care, I love this movie!  Sanju Baba, young Abhishek, Zayed Khan and Dia Mirza chemistry, and a killer soundtrack.  Also, on Netflix and Amazon.

4. Baghban: Slow start to it, but by the end you will be all into hissing the villains and cheering the heroes, I guarantee it.  Also has my favorite Hema Malini scene. On Netflix and youtube not-legally.

 

So, what do you think?  Any interest?  And in which film?  Or is there another film you would suggest that is easily available somewhere and seems like something we could tweet during?

  1. I think I will not be able to watch it with you all, because it will be in the night here in Italy I guess, but I would like to see Raja Hindustani.

    • Raja Hindustani is super fun. And 3 hours long, so if you get up early, you might still be able to catch the tail end with us 🙂

    • Oh oh! Go see Tipu Sultan’s mechanical tiger! This is the main reason I want to go back to London someday, because I never saw it. Also, try to stop by Madame Tussauds and say hi to wax SRK and friends.

    • See, that breaks the “we will forget to tweet because we get caught up in it” rule! Our best watchalong ever: Hum Saath Saath Hain. There is just so much to say, and it’s not like you have to pay attention to follow the plot. Thus the current options on hand. I don’t think any of them are exactly complex.

HSSH has those looooooooooooooong stretches were it is just about the couples flirting, but MPK has fight scenes and family arguments and secrets revealed and all kinds of things happening every few minutes. There were new viewers for both films, but with HSSH it was easier to follow along and not worry about missing something important if you looked away from the screen for a moment.

  3. I watched a new telugu movie : Arjun Reddy. It was awesome. Margaret don’t miss it. There is another movie called fidaa in telugu that is just beautiful. Don’t miss those two

    • I’ve been wanting to watch Fidaa! But it doesn’t look likely. The Hindi releases are really picking up right now, with more than one a week. however, that doesn’t mean I won’t be catching it once it comes to streaming, it’s just making the showtimes while it’s in theaters that is tricky.

    • Joshi, I just read a couple of reviews of Arjun Reddy, and would love to see it. Will have to hope it shows up streaming, though, as the Telugu offerings in my area are very scanty.

  4. I’m visiting the sister in Colorado right now, so this would work fine for me unless it’s really early in the morning. She is also tentatively interested in joining for what will be her third Indian movie. Plus I have access to US Netflix so any of the options will be ok.

    • That’s awesome! Let’s see, I said maybe 9am Chicago time, that would be 8am CO time. We might be able to do later in the day, I was trying to make it decent for the Indian time by keeping it on the early end, but so far I’ve only gotten US people, so it doesn’t matter. And in many ways, sleeping late on Memorial Day feels like our civic duty.

      • 9 am Chicago time it’s 4 pm in Italy so maybe I will be able to see it! I only hope I will have my internet back next week. I really don’t know why I thought it will be at night.

        • Wait, so if I move it to 10am Chicago time, that would be 5pm Italy time, 4pm (I think) London time (if Sal decides to waste 3 hours of a vacation on watching a movie with us), and 9am Colorado time. Which is doable for everybody!

          I’ll wait for someone to chime in from a different time zone, but so far an hour later looks better.

            Badrinath Ki Dulhania
            Bogan
            Jindua (Punjabi with Jimmy Shergill)
            OK Jaanu
            Oppam
            Raees
            Shubh Aarambh (Gujarati)
            Ti Sadhya Kaay Karte (Marathi)

          • Can you just watch “The Humma Humma Song” from OK Jaanu on repeat the entire time? It’s what I would do.
