So many stories today! None of them super worth talking about, but then that is why I do a “news round-up”, so I can just dip in a little bit to a whole bunch of things that aren’t worth their own post. And because there are so many little stories, I am going to do two posts, just to make it easier for discussion.
Shahrukh’s New Netflix Series Starring Bobby Deol
Shahrukh announced the start of filming for “Class of 83” on twitter and tagged Netflix, and it successfully made me go “what the heck is Class of 83”? So thank goodness I found a news article and now I know. It is about a group of cadets in a police training program, with Bobby (supposedly) as their teacher. (story here)
This is a great series idea, I think. Fun to see a group go through training and beyond together, and the police academy concept guarantees drama and excitement, plus I think Bobby Deol as a wise teacher is perfect casting. No idea if that is actually the storyline, but if the rumors are true, I am excited! Plus, kind of cute the way it is imitating Fauji.
Two Movies I don’t care about are Releasing at Christmas
Well, at least I have a year to prepare. Right? “Christmas 2020” means 18 months from now, not 6? Anyway, Aamir’s stupid (yes I am prejudging, but I think we can all agree it is going to be stupid) Forrest Gump remake is announced opposite Hrithik’s stupid (again, pre-judging, but if the last two were stupid, there is a pattern here) Krrish 4. Which means I will have to skip family Christmas events to go watch two stupid movies I don’t even want to see. (story here)
Sacred Games 2 Cast Revealed
I have to admit, I feel really “done” with Sacred Games. I watched the whole first season, and I found I couldn’t remember plot points even within the same episode, and somehow the characters I related to best ended up not getting any attention while those I cared about least got too much (mostly women. Women got no attention). I’m not even sure if I will watch the second season, my biggest reaction to this was “Kalki is in season 2? Does that mean she won’t be back on “Made in Heaven”?” Oh, and also “Konkona’s husband is getting work! That’s nice, maybe she can direct more if he is bringing in the big bucks”. So I guess my biggest reaction was “how will this effect other things that I care about more?” Oh, and thank’s to Reflects on Life for the tip!
