Eid Mubarak!!!! And Bharat Mubarak! It’s a great day all around. I will be seeing Bharat at 6:30 tonight, and I know it’s selfish, but please no spoilers before then! Especially opinion spoilers (“I liked it”, “I hated it”). I want to go in unprejudiced and give an honest response. Instead, let’s talk about anything else we watched!
Watching: I have now seen every single Tiger Shroff movie. Is this something to be proud of? Is it better than having seen all but one Tiger Shroff movie? Anyway, I finally watched Heropanti on Friday. It was cute. Oh, and I watched Junglee on Sunday. It was less cute and more “Is Vidyut Jamwal made of muscles?”
Reading: Bardwaj Rangan’s really good article on filmic grammar and why some films require more plot explication than others. Read it! https://www.filmcompanion.in/ngk-ccv-kaatru-veliyidai-and-the-why-question-in-mainstream-cinema-baradwaj-rangan/
Thinking: I’m going on vacation! A real vacation, when I don’t have to do anything. Starting Friday I’m taking a week off work and staying with my parents at the family house. Which means I get to not work, eat food my parents make for me, and be in a beautiful wonderful place. Oh, also no internet. But I’ll stop by the library every day so DCIB will still be maintained.
Listening: Bharat soundtrack of course! It’s really quite good. Especially “Zinda”
Now, question for you! Simple one. Give me an Eid song!
Here’s mine, the new one from Kalank:
