Happy Saturday! I have no clean clothes. So I will write this thingy, then throw on sort-of clothes and walk the dog, and drive to the laundromat.
There are three stories out there that I don’t particularly want to write a whole Thing on, but I think we can still talk about!
Remaking Arth is a terrible TERRIBLE idea! How can you remake a sensitive autobiographical story? On the other hand, Revathy is directing, and I love her. And her National Award Winning movie was all about women’s desires and quiet lives and stuff, very Arth-y. But still! Remaking Arth? Oh, and casting Jacqueline Fernandez in the Smita Patil role?

Ayushmann Khurranna in a Same-Sex Love Story
Well, this is fun! Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is supposed to be about Ayushmann falling in love with a nice young man from a village. I am hoping for hijinks as they return home and his family tries to organize a traditional wedding for them. This is the plot I have been waiting for someone to make, just because it is such a great twist on the traditional “wedding” story.
PC and Nick Announce Talent Contest Show
“One Week to Sangeet”, supposedly. I’m not even sure I am understanding the concept, something about finding all the talented people by seeing what they would perform at a Sangeet? And I am also not 100% sure this is a real story, it is popping up in the oddest places. Oh well, talk amongst yourself and decide what you think.
