Massive Multi-celebration Birthday Post!!!!!

Happy Birthday Shotgun Sinha, Dia Mirza, Dino Morea, and Priya Gill!  Phew!  I’m exhausted!  Obviously, they are not going to each get reasons I love them.  Let’s see, how to be fair?  Okay, each person gets 3 reasons, either 2 songs and one fact or two facts and one song.  Whatever I feel like. (this is a reposted post from last year)

Shotgun Sinha!  I love you for 3 reasons.

  • First, because you are a remarkably supportive father to your independent hard-working and spunky daughter.
  • Second, because you have a ridiculous advice column in the back of FilmFare magazine with some kind of “contest” every week that seems to boil down to you giving low-priced cookware away to whoever writes in with a joke you like.
  • And third, because Blackmail is BRILLIANT, and you deserve at least 1/3 of the credit.

Happy Birthday Dia!

  • I love you because way back at the beginning of your career you did a phenomenal job playing the sweetly mentally different sister of Urmila in Tehzeeb.

  • I love you because you are a great model for platonic male-female friendships with Zayed Khan, who is also your business partner.

  • I love you because you always look fantastic at every public appearance!  Any time I see a spread of red carpet arrivals to some event, you are the best one.

Happy Birthday Dino Morea!

  • I love you because you got your big break by winning a beauty pageant.  Gender parity!
  • I love you because you are very very very very very handsome.

(that guy in the orange shirt?  Homicidal maniac!  This is a very very odd movie)

  • I love you because you did that great cameo playing the host of the World Dance Competition in Happy New Year.

Happy Birthday Priya Gill

  • Okay, I don’t have very many reasons to love you.  I guess I love you because in your short career you worked in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Punjabi, AND Bhojpuri cinema!
  • I love you because I really really love the songs from Josh and your birthday gives me an excuse to post them.  You also did a nice job playing the violinist who pretends not to like Shahrukh but really does.

  • And I guess I love you for Sirf Tum?  Which is your big hit, according to The Internet, but I have not seen it.  Is it worth seeking out, despite the Sanjay Kapoor of it all?

  1. Sirf tum was huge at the time. I don’t really know why because I never watched it. But my cousin bua, my chachi and her sister absolutely loved this film. It’s probably one of those films that if you watch em when you’re going through something IRL, it hits you. BAD. Watch it because it’s the non comedy chick flick?


    • I suspect I will have the similar reaction as I did to Aashiqui 2 of “If I were the right age and in the right mood, this would be The Greatest Movie of All Time. But I’m not either of those things, so it’s just okay.”

      • I have never seen it either, but everytime I see the poster I think : it looks like a movie I could like, must watch it someday. And now when you talk about it I thought: why not today, and so I started now.


          • For now I can only say: Johnny Lever is in this movie, but thinking about it, it’s nothing unusual because he is in EVERY movie from this period, but he speaks malayalam here (or pretends, I’m not sure). Oh and Gurdas Maan does a cameo in the beggining (he does special apperance in Veer-Zaara’s Aisa Des Hai Mera too) . The most important – beginning of the romantic story is cute.


          • That is the most important! But if you fall in love with Sanjay Kapoor as well as Maddy, Ummi, and Tovino, I may lose all respect for you.

          • Impossible. I’m southern men woman 😉 In movies, and in life too. Born in Poland, but married a Sicilian (and theone from southern part of the island).


  2. I have finished Sirf Tum finally and I’m little confused. It’s not bad, has nice moments, even Johnny Lever is ok, but then everything is spoiled with dialogues like: Those mini-skirt girls are only for fun. An Indian man should marry good Indian sanskari girl. And: The feet visibile below the sari is more atractive that the naked legs below the skirt.
    Maybe if I had seen this movie 15 years ago I would have loved it, but now it’s too outdated. I wonder if original – tamil Kadhal Kottai, has the same stupid dialogues.
