Oh, I am TOTALLY reposting my Ezra review for Passover!!!!!!! I just decided, it is the perfect way to celebrate. Plus, now there is going to be a remake? So I guess it makes sense.
Tiger and His Harem
Karan posted a little “cute” chemistry video of the three stars. And instead it came off to me as an anti-chemistry. The girls act like, well, “girls”. Not women. They are overly enthusiastic and bouncy and innocent, and at one point the one on the right (I truly cannot tell them apart) makes a weird face while the others are talking because she isn’t camera aware.
Meanwhile, Tiger gives appropriate calm kind of comments, as I would expect since he is the one with a lot more experience doing these kinds of promotions, and also just in life. But what is not appropriate is his posture!!!! Very “me and my harem” looking. With these two super young girls. It’s just BLECH. At least, for me. Maybe you all will find it charming.
Bharat New Poster-Kat’s an Engineer!
I’m kind of excited about this!!!! First, Salman looks good again. The old-fashioned hair and mustache are a nice look on his face. Second, Kat is kind of wearing jodhpurs or something? There’s oil rigs in the background, and a map that has “Kuwait” on it. Maybe Salman will end up going as a guest worker to the middle east and falling in love with Kat, his supervisor? I love her look, this is how I think she looks best, simple and natural. And I hope that is her character as well, simple and straightforward and working next to Salman.
Jewish Horror Movie With Emraan!
First, I am just interested in genre differences between languages. In Malayalam, this was a major respectable film with a major star. In Hindi, it’s a T-Series and Emraan Hashmi movie. Horror in Hindi is the thing you make for the teen audiences on a low budget, but in Malayalam it has a long respected tradition. Fascinating!
Anyway, I am pumped about this movie because how often do you get Jewish folklore based horror movies in India? Twice, apparently!
I don’t want to spoil too much of it, but it’s Golem based (obviously) and the origin story for the horror revolved around the long heritage of a Jewish community in India. Assuming they don’t change it completely, I am just excited to have a Hindi film that talks about the long history of Judaism in India.
