Wednesday Watching Post: What Are You Reading and Thinking and Watching the Day After Madhuri’s Birthday? Also, Dog Video

Happy Wednesday!  Are we all recovered from the massive celebrations of yesterday’s holiday (Madhuri Day)?  Anyway, this is the place to chat about anything and everything you have been thinking and reading and watching this week

I’ll start!

Reading: Still going through Terry Pratchett in books.  And also reading tons of Savitri articles, if you are similarly curious, this is the most comprehensive one (not promising accurate, just comprehensive):

http://www.thehansindia.com/posts/index/Tollywood/2013-12-22/Drama-in-real-life/80115

 

Thinking: I am very proud of my little doggie for being calm at home alone for 9 hours every weekday, especially since she is only a little baby doggie, not even two yet.  However, I think I should try to avoid pushing her tolerance by going out in the evenings on work nights, considering the first time she tried to beat the door down when I left, the next time she ate two whole chocolate bars, and the third time she apparently read a book in my bed using my reading glasses (I found a book off the shelf and my back-up glasses buried in the blankets).  So, no more unnecessary socializing on weeknights!

 

Watching: Finished Brooklyn 99, now back to Sabrina the Teenage Witch again.  And Indian stuff too, but I can’t tell you about it, because it will turn into real grown up posts at some point.

 

 

Okay, question for you!  Madhuri themed, of course.

What Madhuri movie have I not yet reviewed and should?

 

And now, bonus video!  I came home last week to discover Dog Hazel had managed to tear up my entire apartment in a (ultimately successful) quest to drag a bag of treats off the center of the dining room table.  So naturally I congratulated her on being so clever and started thinking about what I had done wrong as a dog owner to make her this bored.  (My sister points out that this attitude of “misbehavior is just energy misdirected” is why my Sunday School class has turned into total anarchy.  My feeling is that a few minor cuts and burns and property damage are worth it if it makes kids excited to go to church.)

Anyway, I ended up reacting to her tearing up the apartment and stealing treats by buying her a toy.  If she wobbles it just right, it will dispense food.

  1. I love Sabrina the teenage witch.I remember prowling all the libraries for that one issue where Sabrina’s cat turns human -her cousin Sebastian, I think?I think you’ve covered all the major Madhuri movies here.

    I’ve been watching Sunil Dutt’s movies and won’t be finishing any time soon.The man had a career spanning at least 40 years.After watching his tragic romance with Waheeda Rehman in Mujhe Jeene do, it was such a relief to watch them in a silly farce Ek Phool Chaar Kante.He has to win over Waheeda’s four uncles by pretending to be four different men -a religious student,actor,yoga expert and a Rock and Roll dancer.His parents find his newfound interests perplexing.There’s his best friend who’s in love with Waheeda and has to be dealt with.All this while Waheeda is having the time of her life watching Sunil Dutt scramble.”Oh,” she says “I wish I had a dozen uncles.”

    Then there was Kismet ka Khel where he’s a fugitive wanted for murder.While robbing a bakery he meets with Vyjayanthimala who’s the leader of a gang of pickpockets and street people.At first he finds them very dirty and dishonest.But soon enough they are helping him find out the true murderer.While Sunil languishes in jail, Vyjayanthimala and the victim’s daughter end up getting the confession from the murderer and beating him up before delivering him to the police.

    In Duniya Jhukti hai Sunil Dutt turns into a life of crime after his girlfriend dumps him for a richer powerful man.After some 5-6 years he’s a minor crime boss working for a mysterious “Boss” has a tawaif girlfriend and a gang of amiable thieves.He becomes attached to a fatherless boy (an adorable Daisy Irani)and pretends to be the latter’s father.Only Munna is his ex’s son, and now she’s a single mother.The rest of the film deals whether Munna can bring him back “to the world of honest people” and whether his superiors will let him go.As the honest Mohan he’s clean cut,handsome,wears neatly pressed clothes and very passionate..As the dishonest Bankelal he’s sleazy, with tousled hair and a small moustache,colorful wardrobe consisting of loose kurta,embroidered vest and lungi and walks with a swagger.Sunil is extremely convincing as two different people here.

    • You are amazing, with your ability and interest in tracking down these older films. Once Sanju comes out, everyone else will be in the theaters for the Sanjay Dutt/Madhuri gossip, and you will be sitting there thinking “wait, they messed up that obscure fact about Kumar Gaurav’s career, and Sunil wasn’t filming that movie when Sanju was born, he was filming this other movie”.

      What’s really interesting to me, from your description of the plots, is how fluid society was in those films. Our heroes were criminals and bandits, even if they started out clean good people, the line was very blurry. And women too! Good, bad, it was just a matter of a few scenes for it to switch. And now, there is such a HUGE deal made if it is a “different” kind of heroine or hero, “different” meaning not upperclass English speaking officer worker.

      • Society was fluid back then not just the films. My grandparents had a bandit friend who operated in the areas around the Nepal border. He used to bring supplies when our family home in the village was besieged by the enemy group and my grandmother had all the kids sent away and she used to patrol our terrace with a .12 bore! My dad wanted to grow up to become a bandit so that was like a legit career choice back then. LOL

          • Kind of. We have ranches with 100s of cattle all together. The cowboys have to control the cows, which means they have to be on horseback to get in and out of the herd, and they have to have these amazing skills in roping, shooting, and of course riding. It’s also a very lonely existence, just you and your horse and the cows out in the middle of nowhere (because there has to be enough space for all the cows to move around). So we have this romantic tradition of the lonely cowboy poet, spending all day doing brave superhuman horse tricks, and then at night under the stars singing songs.

            Anyway, it’s the kind of thing every little boy wants to be, but very few little boys actually go off and do it.

Especially when the only female options in that setting were Miss Kitty, the bar lady with a heart of gold, or the ranch wife, who may or may not get murdered when the guys are away, and otherwise cooks for all the ranch hands and raises the children alone.

          • I feel like the whole KKHH dynamic of the interesting tomboy girl and the “perfect” feminine girl is a recurring theme in Westerns too. Our heroine is a tomboy who ropes and rides and shoots and she is contrasted with the “proper” boring women. the ballet Rodeo, the musicals Girl Crazy/Crazy for You, and loads of books, all with that plot. And with the western setting, often the happy ending is a discovery that a “tough” woman is better and more useful in this place than the perfect woman, so she doesn’t have to change herself. At least, I know that’s how a lot of the Zane Grey’s end, our horse mad heroine is cheerful and happy on the trail and everyone ends up liking her better than the soft woman who is afraid of horses and worried about the sun and all that.

            Boy, now this is making me want to go back to Zane Grey for a bit! I may need to take a Terry Pratchett break.

  2. I haven’t seen this movie, but I would love to read your review of Abodh, Madhuri’s debut film.

    I watched Mukkabaaz last week, and strongly recommend it , but not as a boxer story (because in some parts it was very similar to Irrudhi Suttru), but as a story of boxer’s girlfriend who despite of her handicap and coming from very traditional, women disrespecting family, fights for what she wants. An intelligent, strong woman
    And few days later I watched Hey Jude. I really, really like it.

    Like

    • Yaaay, someone else who saw Hey Jude! I liked it too. It wasn’t the greatest movie of all time, but it took a familiar set-up and handled it in a respectful and intelligent way instead of just going for the tropes.

      Did you come out of it, like me, more impressed by Trisha than Nivin?

      Oh, and really interested on your take on Mukkabaaz, it sounds like once again Aanand L Rai came up with a really interesting original film to produce. And Jimmy Shergill is in it? That’s always a good sign.

        And Mukkabaaz is really good. It has it all – gripping story, strong characters, woman who has her own dreams and life and is not only an eye-candy , good actors, good music, and
        Vineet Kumar Singh going shirtless often 😉 . Full package movie.
        And yes, Jimmy Shergill was the villain, and he was scary. He plays an ex-boxer, aggresive type with his health damaged by boxing. As always he was very good.

I don’t know how I feel about these romances of a young girl who doesn’t want marriage and then grows up and is “wiser” and appreciates her husband. At least in Uphaar (from what I can tell not having seen it) everyone told the hero it was a bad idea and wouldn’t work, but he insisted and that is why he married someone so much younger in spirit than he.

  3. I’m so very excited that you are reading Terry Pratchett. What I wouldn’t give for a Granny Weatherwax in my life. She exemplifies living live on her own terms, but morally, and dispensing tough love to those around her. She would drive me crazy but I’m sure I’d be a better person for it.

    The two questions that I try to ask Shah Rukh whenever he does some livestream to promote a movie, or (almost never now) does #AskSRK on Twitter, is whether he reads Pratchett, and who from the Discworld universe he’d like to play. After the Witches novels, I recommend the Vimes series. Shah Rukh would make a really awesome Sam Vimes, and they would be fun stories to cast. So far, no response. 🙂 Oh–and a fun standalone one is Monstrous Regiment.

    Watched half of Pari last night (thanks, filmilibrarian–I think–who mentioned it’s on Prime). I don’t think anyone mentioned in the discussion here the poor doggies. Twice in the first half some poor puppy gets hurt. Of course I don’t like that people (especially women) are getting hurt either, but one expects that when watching a horror movie. Other than that I’m really enjoying it. Looking forward to finishing it and hope people here are still up for discussing it a bit.

    Like

    • I think Pari is one that will be discussed and discussed for years, I’m hoping/expecting for it to be a bit of a cult hit.

      You are right about the doggies! Although the film treats that respectfully, it’s not just for shock, part of the reason they are being hurt is because they will sacrifice themselves voluntarily to help someone. Your reaction reminds me of John Wick, when I showed it to my sister and brother-in-law, they loved the movie, but had to leave the room for the opening sad bit. Dozens of Russian gangsters could be killed, no problem, but the dog better not be hurt!!!!

      I was just at my church quilting group on Monday, and there is a woman who is a bit of a “Granny Weatherwax” in that group. Tiny little lady, almost 80, gets up at 4am every morning to swim laps, and essentially runs the whole church. Also a very scary little lady. Now that I think about it, when I first joined the church 10 years ago there was a different tiny old woman who ran everything. I guess that’s just a consistent thing! Every church always has a terrifying small (always small) old woman that does everything, and as one of them dies, another one ages into the role. I strongly suspect that, in 50 years, it will be me. I just have to shrink 6 inches.

  4. I hosted my annual Problematic Mother’s Day, for friends who for whatever reason just aren’t into the holiday. It’s now in its seventh year as a no-explanation, no-apology event. In previous years we would hang out at a local bar, ideally one with a male bartender. This year I was seriously jonesing for Indian movies and since I now have a little cadre of budding fans, I offered a marathon! We started at 1 pm with English/Vingish, then Jab Harry Met Sejal at 4, and wrapping up with Queen from 7 to 9:30 pm. Snacks and beverages throughout. I had a total of ten people show up, with one friend who watched all three. I see another marathon in our future, as people LOVED it.

    I am reading “Far From the Madding Crowd” for my book group. They were in the mood for Thomas Hardy and thankfully I talked them out of Jude the Obscure.

    And I have been thinking about designing and making things: a stole for our choir director, a baby quilt for some friends expecting their first, and a new outfit for myself, out of some Ghanaian fabric passed on my a friend.

    • My church quilting group was just looking back at the stoles we have made! The key is to know the height of the person you are making it for. But you probably already know much more about it than I would. The other thing we talked about was quilters versus Quilters. Our quilting group is very ramshackle, we do a lot of imperfect things and we don’t have access to a real quilting sewing machine. But we all know scary formal quilters of the type that have machine stitching and crazy high standards and all that. The nice thing is, if you let yourself be imperfect, you can finish projects much faster.

      I am jealous of your marathon!!!!! And also thinking maybe I should try that, just for the time flexibility, I always have a hard time getting a group together all at the same time, but if I could tell them “arrive whenever, movies will be playing all day” it might be easier.

        I am definitely a small “q” quilter. I know how it should be done if you are making them for a living, but mine never quite reach that level. We have seven memorial quilts at our church, where names of the dear departed are displayed, and they were done by a group of Quilters.

I am fascinated by this because it’s just such an old fashioned business plan, renting out your technology on a case by case basis, like someone with a flour mill in the 1700s.

  5. I was watching Deepika and Aishwarya’s loreal shows in Cannes. Couldn’t bear Deepika for more than 5 min, she’s literally unable to string a sentence without the ums and I think. Aishwarya, on the other hand was a delight. She’s a wonderful orator, and so classy. I don’t think much of her as an actress, but out of a the Indian actresses representing India abroad, she is the best, she really knows how to conduct herself. Priyanka’s too hyper on all these American shows and seems so fake. Deepika, on the other side of the spectrum, is too boring.

    2. Beta (remake of a Telugu film — see if you can spot the “Telugu” traits in it. More commonly referred to as “Beti” since she dominated the film. Also the one with the song Dhak Dhak Karne Laga)

And I just skimmed the box office for this week and it wasn’t in the top 5 anywhere, so it’s probably dropping out of theaters.

      My 21st was with my parents, but it wasn’t a big family thing, it was really nice. I was going to school in Chicago, my sister and my parents came to visit me, we went to an old fancy hotel restaurant and ordered champagne and my parents made me have a glass and made a big fuss, and then we walked the couple miles back to my dorm room through downtown at night. I don’t know if that helps, because it’s not really possible to recreate.

      I don’t know if this helps, but I didn’t have the “college experience” until I was about 3 years out of college and living in an apartment. For me, college was a lot like what it sounds like you have had so far. I had part-time jobs that I really liked and studied and enjoyed my classes, but there were no wild late nights or parties or big group of friends. And then when I was 24-25 I ended up working a job where I made a ton of friends and we would hang out after work at my apartment and stay up until 3am and just generally do all those fun things that people talked about happening in college and I never had.

    Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam with Salman & SRK. Remake of a Tamil film.
    Pukar-unlike usual Madhuri films where the heroes can’t but help chase her, this one had Madhuri chasing the hero. Lot of good songs.
    Prem Rog-had a very suffering Madhuri. She gets raped, has to bury her child & a whole lot of stuff while Rishi Kapoor is looking for her. I think this was from RK studios & directed by Rishi Kapoor’s younger brother.

  9. Had very little watching time but finally finished Inquilaab, and I felt a little ashamed of myself for laughing at it. It seems to be a sincere attempt to treat the theme of corruption and croneyism, something which is still a problem everywhere. And maybe in the early 80s people could watch it without constantly going “um, really?” (Who said that when we read a book/watch a film from another time we are “translating” it into our own idiom, even if the language is our own? Maybe Umberto Ecco?). It does have a fairly serious plot hole, in that the web of lies that supposedly traps Amitabh forever so that he has no hope of escape could actually be dealt with fairly easily, and I actually kept expecting that to happen and then looking at my watch and thinking “what are they going to do for another 70 minutes?” And the whole thing with all the hallucinations and dream sequences and cartoonishly evil villains and, as I’ve mentioned, people punching each other, is just way way way over the top. But you should totally watch it when you’re done with all the Madhuri watching!

Beautifully shot, great performances, just the right amounts of scares and gore for me, iffy plot but worth it for the treatment of the themes you highlighted in your spoiler review. Anushka is really something special. And I LOVED the way sound was used throughout–made everything much scarier.

    Watched the new Ittefaq over the weekend with hubby. We both enjoyed it but I’m finding that not much about the movie stands out in my mind now. I like the theme of the user/fame hungry author, and you just know that Sid’s next book is going to feature the cop’s dead brother. Ugh.

      • Yes, those bits at the end helped. And her compulsive drawing of the poor little doggie on the street. 😥

        Akshaye was really good. I can see why SRK was praising his acting all over the place when this came out (aside from it being a promotional strategy).

        • I really love Akshaye in that. And I was thinking about it when I wrote my newest DDLJ section, I’ve decided I like it is a DDLJ sequel, poor shy Mandira goes to the city it meets intelligent lowkey Akshaye who slowly pulls her out of her shell until she turns into a confident snapping back kind of wife.
