Happy New Year’s Eve!!!!  Obviously, I have to do a theme post.  I considered stories that revolved around New Years celebrations, but then I wasn’t sure what that would look like in India, so instead I am going with my sister’s suggestion and doing New Year’s combined with time travel.

News Round-Up: Padmavati to Padmavat and Vaani to Shraddha

Well, it finally got approved.  And I kind of agree with everything the Censors did.  At least, as it is presented by them and the spin they are putting on it.  I am sure there are all kinds of political realities on the ground that I am missing which makes them not so great.  Oh, and I think we can aaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllll agree that swapping Vaani for Shraddha is a disaster of epic proportions.

Happy Shahrukh Day! All the Shahrukh Classic Reviews, Starting With His First Film

Think of this as one of those special clip shows that TV shows used to do for off weeks.  I’m still playing catch up from the holidays, so I am putting in theme reruns.  Which will have the added benefit of helping me finally put together the lists of reviews by Star.  I did Salman first, because it is his Birthday Week, and now Shahrukh.  Starting with Dil Aashna Hai, his first film (first shot, second released).

All the Salman Classic Reviews in One Place

As a special treat for Salman’s birthday, I have been reposting all the Classic films I have reviewed of his (“classic” meaning, not new films I saw in theaters, but old ones I decided were worthy of reviewing again).  And now he will become the First of the Stars to have his own little index of related reviews.  I will try to remember to keep it updated.

TGIF: Smoking Men

It’s a pun!  Do you get it?  Because it is men who are smoking hot, and also actually smoking, like smoking cigarettes.  Okay, so it’s kind of a lame theme, but I still have holiday brain, and who knows, maybe seeing all of these photos of themselves will inspire some of these guys to make it a New Year’s resolution to stop smoking.

Happy Shahrukh Day! The Most Shahrukh-y Film to Not Have Shahrukh Actually in It

Yesterday I did Salman, for his birthday, today Shahrukh.  Think of it like those clip shows sitcoms used to do sometimes to fill empty weeks.  I am still playing catch up from the holidays, so I am doing theme reruns to keep you entertained.  Bonus, it is helping me finally organize my reviews by star, the way I have been wanting too!  Oh, and I just love love love this movie.  And it’s on Netflix!  So anything I can do to promote it, even forcibly inserting it into this Shahrukh Day, is worth it.

Happy Salman Day!!!!!! 7 Salman Classics Reviewed-starting with Love

I was trying to think what to put up for Friday Classics, and then I thought “why not a Salman movie that I have reviewed in the past, reposted?”  And then I thought “why not two Salman movies?”  And then I thought, “why not ALL THE SALMAN MOVIE CLASSIC REVIEWS ALL AT ONCE.”  And I am going to start with Love, which was an early early movie of his, and he is just brilliant in it.
