This was supposed to be Shahid’s day, and he will still get his index, but obviously Sridevi has to come first in a bit of an emergency situation.

  1. Totally shocked when I read Preity Zinda’s tweet that SriDevi had died suddenly of a massive cardiac arrest in Dubai. I always thought of her as around same age as SRK. And, just recently KJO spoke of wishing to direct her in a film. So sorry for her husband and her daughters & stepchildren.

    • It was definitely a shock. One of those lives that didn’t feel finished. In multiple ways, she had many years of films left in her, and her daughters are still not quite grown, and her relationship with her stepchildren and in-laws is fraught and now can never be fully resolved.

      Although I suppose it is a reminder, heart disease is still the biggest killer of women. And can strike much younger than you would expect.

  3. Woke up to this and other very sad news this morning. 2 actresses taken way before their time (the other being Emma Chambers from The Vicar of Dibley). I have only seen a couple of her films but understand how much she means to the film-going audience. RIP.

    • Yes Emma Chambers! The headline I saw referred to her as “Emma Chambers from Notting Hill” and then I saw her face and went “no, that’s from the Vicar of Dibley!”

  5. Last night I logged into Netflix and searched for Sridevi, and the only result found was Khuda Gawa, so I watched it. Released in 1992, starring Sridevi, Sr Bachchan, Danny Denzongpa, Shilpa Shirodkar, and Nagarjuna, takes place in Afghanistan and India. Over 3 hours long, the first two hours are well paced, cohesive, and engrossing, once you get used to the operatic overacting and the declarative dialogues and the emphasis on twu love and your word being your bond. The third hour is completely shlocky and convoluted – It’s basically a different movie tacked onto the end of the first 2-hour movie. consider this movie a B grade popcorn entertainer, not the worst way to spend an evening with sri & amitji. But turn off the tv after the first 2 hours and do something more productive with your life, like sitting there doing nothing.

    • I love the end! At least the end-end. With the neon camouflage bazookas and tripwire horse falls and sudden amnesia cures. Oh, and I will be reviewing it some time this week, so we can have lots more discussion.

      • Yes you can watch the final hour in a so-bad-it’s-good sort of way. Glad to hear that you will be reviewing this 🙂

        As of this writing, are there any other Sri movies on Netflix or Amazon Prime?

        • Yes! Khuda Gawah is on Netflix, but Amazon Prime has the motherload. Gumrah (Ram Gopal Verma collaberation), also Chandni, Lamhe, Himmatwala, and Heer Ranjhna.
