Thursday Tamil: Kandukondain Kandukondain! The Best Austen in India!

This is the 4th Indian movie I saw. First Lagaan, then Rangeela, then DDLJ, then this. And I had no idea what was happening or what I was watching. But I liked it!

Manikarnika Discussion Post: Mishti and Krish Interviews

Personally, I find this story fascinating. You don’t have to, either because you are just tired of it, or because you like to watch movies but aren’t interested in how they are made, or just because you don’t think it is that important or worth discussion. But I find it fascinating, and so I am going to indulge myself with another post, and putting up a bunch of videos for you all to watch, and hoping that there will be someone else here I can talk to about it all.

Wednesday Malayalam: Aravindante Athidhikal, The Power of the Mother

A nice pleasant not terribly challenging movie. Which somehow is what I always expect from Vineeth Sreenivisan starring movies. And a very nice movie to think about and maybe watch as we all worry about Sreenivisan in the hospital.

Monday Morning Questions: Happy Week of Ek Ladki Ko Dekho and Sarvam Thaala Mayam!!!!

Happy Monday!!! I had one of those weekends that was more exhausting than a work week, so I am happy to be back at work. Well, not super super happy. I still wouldn’t mind getting to sleep in a bit and avoiding the cold commute and all that. But not super sad either!

Silly Sunday: A Summer Place, Shahrukh as a Sexually Unsatisfied Middle-Aged Man and Loving Father

I had such fun re-writing one strange memorable 60s Hollywood teen film last week, I thought I might try again this week. Especially because this one has the PERFECT role for Shahrukh. Oh, and it is also very VERY long. And not necessarily good, I just wrote myself into a plot hole and it took a while to write myself out.
