Happy October! Only 30 days left to Halloween, which means I need to start getting serious about my Christmas present plans. Currently I am thinking about making 14 identical handmade gifts for everyone on my list, which should take me about a week per gift, sooooooooooooooooo I guess I am already running behind?
As always, you can ask me anything from the personal (“why 14 gifts?”) to the specific and factual (“are there any Indian movies about Halloween?”) to the general discussion (“what is the best movie to watch while doing crafts?”).
The only rule is, you have to let me answer first! The discussion just goes better that way. But once I have answered, you can go ahead and join the discussion if you have something to add.
Now, question for you! Fall is traditionally my time to read murder mysteries. The cool weather makes my brain work better than in the summer so I want something intellectual. As I am browsing at the library for new serieses, I inevitably started to think: What mystery series should be made into an Indian film?
Here is what I have come up with so far:
Lord Peter Wimsey: Aristocratic sensitive detective and his romance with the difficult rude lady mystery novelist. Plus murders! It’s the perfect movie.
Campion: This is a less famous series but I love it. Another aristocratic detective, but a poor one who is more of an adventurer. And his spunky brilliant engineer female sidekick/love interest.
Mr. and Mrs. Pitt: A detective marries slightly above himself, and he and his wife and his wife’s very wealthy socialite sister all solve mysteries, him working up from below stairs and his wife and sister-in-law working down from above.
Miss Marple: I just want Waheeda Rahman to play her. Is that too much to ask?
Columbo: Irrfan Khan
