Happy Monday! It’s Madhuri week, and I have to do two reviews of Mahanati, so I am VERY BUSY. I don Oh, and also work and stuff. Anyway, give me an excuse to take a break by asking me questions!
As always, you can ask me anything from the personal (“what movie would you watch if you could take a break from work?”) to the specific and factual (“what Hindi movie shows work scenes?”) to the general discussion (“what is the best movie to watch to forget about work?”)
The only rule is, you have to let me answer first! And once I answer, you can leap in with your own opinions. The discussion just goes better if I start it.
Now, question for you. A simple one.
What movie/story would you like to see remade, either English to Indian, or India to India between languages?
My favorite American movie is Singin’ in the Rain, and I would LOVE to see that remade. It would be an easy remake too, set it in Madras or Bombay in the great studio era, make it about a famous onscreen couple who don’t like each other off screen and how she can’t speak the language. Be about the birth of dubbing. It would be great! And it can also be very self-aware if we want, something like SRK-Juhi playing the famous couple with the reveal that Juhi is horrible offscreen, and then SRK falling for young and fresh Deepika. That’s just off the top of my head, but really any famous jodi would work, contrasted with a new talent.
