Happy Wednesday! Time to talk about what we’ve all been doing this week and share movie and book and article recommendations and everything else happening in our lives.
Reading: I finally finished my Rajinikanth book! Hoping to have time to do a post about it today, if not it should be tomorrow. Oh, and I just started the first Night Guard book by Terry Pratchett.
Watching: Watched Qarib Qarib Singlle on Friday with friends, watched London Bridge late Sunday by myself, and in between times watched Murder She Wrote again, it is still wonderful. If we can’t have Hema Malini, what do you think about Amrita Singh? Or Shabana Azmi?
Thinking: What do I do about AR Rahman? He’s coming to town in a couple weeks, it looks like it could be a really interesting concert (outdoors, for one thing). But I’ve already seen him so it’s not like I have to check it off my bucket list. And I missed the window for the cheap tickets. And I may not be able to find anyone to go with me. And it’s like 2 hours away. Hmmm. Oh, and in a less pressuring decision, should I see Paltaan or Laila-Majnu next week?
Now, question for you!
I’ve asked this before but it bares repeating, and anyway there might be updated opinions now.
What couple that haven’t co-starred do you most want to see together? And in what kind of film?
I want to see Varun and Parineeti in a light-hearted comedy. Something silly and nonsensical, a plot like “They fall in love, but her father only wants her to marry a poor man who knows the value of hardwork, so Varun has to hide his riches and pretend to be ridiculously poor with a lot of spoofs of other movies with the poor boy and rich girl. And meanwhile his parents only want him to marry an experienced woman who has had a lot of boyfriends so she knows what love is, so Parineeti has to rope her gay best friend into playing her ex and do a lot of in jokes referring to her previous movies while she makes up romantic escapades”.
