Happy Monday! And Happy 41 Years of Marriage to my parents! Last year was a big deal, but now it is just kind of “whatever” until they hit 50.
As always you can ask me anything you want from the personal (“what is your favorite movie about a marriage?”) to the specific and factual (“what is different between a Hindu, Muslim, and Christian marriage in films?”) to the general discussion (“what is the best movie about a marriage?”).
The only rule is, you have to let me answer any question first! The discussion just goes better that way. But once I have given my answer, please jump in with your own response!
Oh, and a question for you! I just watched a Malayalam movie yesterday (review going up later today) which is a strong contender for “least favorite Indian movie ever watched”. What is your least favorite Indian movie? A movie you really really hated?
For me, Ta Ra Rum Pum Pum because of the incredible selfishness of the main characters and how the audience was expected to forgive and understand. Also Himmatwala, the new one, which is the only movie I have ever considered walking out on in theaters. It was regressive and misogynistic, and also just really really boring. I know there are more, but those are two that leap to mind immediately.
