Happy Saturday! Supposedly we will get a bunch of thunderstorms today that will turn the 99 degree weather into a more tolerable high 70s. But I will believe it when I see it. In the meantime, I will spend my day hiding in air conditioned spaces.
Things to talk about! I saw Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) with my parents last night, it was a park service thing, a free out door screening in one of the prettiest little parks in the city that’s just about half a mile away from me. And BOY, is that a sappy movie! Show folk are good folk, patriotism is the best, our hero is noble and just, and blah blah blah. But it was a nice evening. And now I am thinking, we need more saccherine biopics of film people for the Hindi industry! Mahanati was a good start, but there’s got to be more.
Other stuff to talk about!
Siddhant Chaturvedi’s rumored YRF film might be the (also rumored) Bunty Aur Babli sequel! How do we feel about this?
Kangana versus Taapsee and Deepika, I have nothing to say, what do you say?
And, song teaser for Saaho! Not a trailer, a teaser for the trailer, which is itself advertising for the film. It’s the publicity that is eating its own tail!
Far more interesting (to me), the composer is listed as Tanishk Bagchi who is one of Dharma’s go-to writers. Do you think that’s why Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy left last minute? Karan pressured the producers into bringing in Tanishk for a “hit” song and S-E-L were insulted that their perfect soundtrack was being messed with?
