Happy Monday! After my super productive weekend (I did everything but hang the new towel rack), regular work feels like a bit of an anti-climax. So, distract me! Ask me questions!
Now, questions! You can ask me anything from the personal (“why didn’t you see Batti Gul Meter Chalo?”) to the specific and factual (“What is Batti Gul Meter Chalo?”) to the general discussion (“Can you decide a movie isn’t worth watching without having watched it?”)
Only rule is, you have to let me answer first! The discussion just goes better that way. But once I answer, please feel free to leap in and join the conversation.
Now, question for you! What are your unpopular opinions in Indian film fandom?
I don’t have that many, because I am pretty mainstream and boring in my tastes. Stuff like “I don’t like Bhansali movies” is uncommon, but not really unpopular.
But here are three things that are just my opinion (not ready to be expanded into an official post or review) which I knew are going to be fairly unpopular:
- I don’t think Katrina is all that bad of an actress. Works hard, friendly on camera, soft attitude to her co-stars. Sure, she could be better, but she could also be worse.
- I just rewatched the I songs again, and I kind of think Amy Jackson is actually a good actress!
- On the other hand, I think maybe Ranbir Kapoor isn’t that good of an actor at all? Kind of focuses on the tics and tricks instead of bringing out emotion in the audience, and always plays the same role. And, a very unpopular opinion, I also think Kangana may not be that good? In the right part, she is magnificent. But I don’t know if she can play anything besides those right parts.
Now, I have revealed my secret shame! Your turn to pull out your unpopular opinions.
