Shahrukh Month Starts in 3 Days!!!! (low-key)

I put up a post a week or so back asking if I should celebrate this year, and the answer was a resounding “you do whatever makes you happy”.  So, okay!  I will!

I’ll indulge myself and put up a Shahrukh post every day, but I’m not going to kill myself coming up with original ideas and new content and long lists and stuff.  It will just be whatever I feel like.

But I am going to do some new Shahrukh reviews.  And I am going to tell you the dates in advance, so you can watch (or rewatch) the films, and be prepared to discuss them:

10/3: Koyla

10/10: Chak De India

10/17: Yes Boss

10/24: Jab Tak Hain Jaan

10/31: Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham


If you like Shahrukh, you can enjoy my fun little posts with me and share your own cute pictures or discussion ideas or whatever in the comments.  If you don’t like Shahrukh, you can ignore them because there is plenty of other content that will still be published.  And if you just want me to be happy, well, I will be!  I love Shahrukh month.  Gives me time to ramp up to my celebration of Shahrukh Day.  This year, I am thinking maybe a layer cake and Jab Harry Met Sejal.

(does this face say “I want a layer cake” or does it say “I want cupcakes”?  Oh!  Or maybe PIE!!!!)

  1. Harry, the womanizer, is asking himself why he wants nothing from Sejal but just BE with her.
    I would offer them both one big chocolate ice cream and two spoons!


  2. I’ve only seen the last 2 movies you have scheduled, so I’m looking forward to watching the rest. 🙂

    They are in Europe, so how about tiramisu?


    • Perfect! In italian “tiramisu” means approximately “pull me up” in the sense of “restore my forces” Legend has it was created in a very exclusive venetian house…


    • For me, it’s a nice college memory. But it’s still cheering and sentimental.

  3. Pie, always and forever.

    I just finished watching Chaahat because it was the least terrible looking of the SRK movies on Netflix I hadn’t seen yet (and hiding from the terrible news cycle). I liked it better than I expected, definitely more than Pardes. The Anupam-Shah Rukh love story alone, and Naseeruddin, plus Pooja Bhatt is no slouch, and Ramya Krishna was lots of fun to watch – some of the same intense gazes as in Bahubali but from a completely different character. Just that last half hour is so brutal…

    • I love Naseerji being so joyfully evil and strange in it. You can tell he is having a wonderful time coming up with creepy things for his character to do.


        • I love the puppy song! Although it is mildly disturbing that he just leaves the puppy on the train platform at the end of it. Poor puppy!

          In my head, I will pretend Mahesh took the puppy home and gave it to Alia afterwards.

          • It’s true, I was kind of hoping the puppy would be a new sidekick but then he disappeared. More of an item puppy.

            Another scene I liked was the first meeting of Pooja and SRK. He’s instantly smitten and trailing her down the street talking at hyperspeed, and she turns around and tells him – not unkindly – to be quiet (chup!) and stop following her. This is often my reaction to SRK’s characters at this stage, I loved that they wrote that in.


          • “Item Puppy” is my new favorite term.

            If you want a long term puppy (well, dog) check out the Akshay film Holiday.
