Well, this should be fun! I’ve already reviewed a bunch of Hrithik movies, almost all of them, mostly because he just doesn’t make that many movies. There’s a couple others I haven’t reviewed yet that I know well enough I can write the reviews by memory. And I’m gonna be celebrating my mother’s birthday this weekend, so I may not be able to see Super 30 until who-knows-when. In the meantime, these should keep us all busy!
First one! Which is also a Shahrukh Summer Review! Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, going up tonight, 7/8
7/9: Mujshe Dosti Karoge, Hrithik and Rani and Kareena and a classic mistaken identity romance that takes a turn for the INSANE in the second half.
7/10: Na Tum Jaane Na Hum (NEW REVIEW) Strangely enough, same plot as Mujshe Dosti Karoge! Just with the genders reversed and Esha Deol and Saif instead of Rani and Kareena. Also, one of the all time sexiest dance floor moments in history. Really, worth watching the film just for that.
7/11: Aap Mujhe Aache Lagne Lage (NEW REVIEW) Almost the same plot as Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, producers really did not have a lot of imagination in Hrithik’s early days. Same cast too, Hrithik and Amisha together again.
7/12: Kaho Na Pyar Hai. The movie that Made Hrithik. You really can’t understand what he is today and why he is still so powerful and popular until you have watched this movie.
7/13: Lakshya. The surprisingly underappreciated Hrithik film. A good movie with an original idea and a great cast and great script and really amazing songs.
7/14: Bang Bang. Grand finale, my favorite Hrithik movie. If he just made movies like this over and over again, I would be a happy camper.
I’ll also be throwing in some fun Hrithik-themed discussion posts along the way, light summer stuff. And he will probably make an appearance in my TGIF. This seems like a reasonable substitute for a prompt thoughtful review of a new movie, right?
