Happy Wednesday! Only one day left/6 hours until Shahrukh’s birthday. And only 2 days until Ittefaq! Oh, and I have a Shahrukh Question for you.
For reading, looking up Dilip Kumar for last Sunday’s fanfic post got me sucked into his autobiography. It’s fascinating! And very nicely written, a nice peaceful poetic kind of read.
For thinking, thinking about my kitchen. I have a new stove now (yay!), but my sink is backed up and leaking. So I think I just have to make my peace with one appliance in my life being in a constant state of disrepair.
Now, your question!!!! Last week I challenged you to come up with your own answers for my posts on Shahrukh, Best Song, Best Film, and so on. Now, something different, I want you to rank the WORST of each!!! Well, least favorite, because I don’t want to be mean and say anything is just plain bad. I’ll start:
Least Favorite Song
“Jabra Fan” from Fan. It was just suggested by Procrastinatrix as a Halloween song, and it really is! Manic, slightly disturbing, just unpleasant. Which is right for its film, but I still don’t like it!
Least Favorite film
Devdas. And now you can all hate me! But really, I just do not like it. I wouldn’t say it was the worst film he was in, it’s very pretty and all that, I just really hate it for myself.
Least Favorite Co-star
Aishwarya Rai. Feel free to hate me again! Especially since it is her birthday today, which makes it a little extra mean. But I feel like Shahrukh is so much about wearing his emotions on his sleeve, and her style is so not that, it is just the ultimate clash. Makes him look too emotional, and her look like a robot.
Least Favorite Performance
Dil Aashna Hai. Love the movie, he looks adorable, but he really doesn’t know how to act on camera yet. He spends much too much time just sort of standing there and reacting. I mean, it’s still a good performance, but it’s my least favorite of his performances.
Least Favorite Character
Charlie in Happy New Year. This was just a mess! Cool international dude, self-identified “loser”, grieving son, criminal genius, it is all mixed up together and doesn’t make any sense as a whole.
Okay, now you go!
