Not what we “think he might announce”, but sky’s the limit, anything is possible, kind of wish list post. What big BIG thing would make you very happy for Shahrukh to say?Continue reading

Month of SRK: 2 Beautiful Things He Wrote
This is a very simple post, but I can’t really improve on it. Two lovely things that Shahrukh has written.Continue reading
Question: Which of These is the Cutest Bumbro?
You ready for a silly silly Halloween themed post? With Bees???? And Al-Bees?Continue reading
Month of SRK: A Gift From Me to You! Two Very Old, Very Very Good, Interviews
These are from the “First Day First Show” book (buy it here! There’s a lot of really good well-written stuff in it) by Anupama Chopra. It’s a collection of the best writings from the first years of her career, when she was a journalist researching and writing long form articles and interviews. They are both good on their own, and also a fascinating time capsule for that period of Shahrukh.Continue reading
Happy Halloween! Which of These Songs is Scariest?
Happy Halloween! Albie Dog is in his bee costume and will be staying in it for the rest of the day, no matter how pitiful he looks. And I am wearing skull earrings. It’s all very festive.Continue reading
Wednesday Malayalam: Two Premam Reviews Combined into one to make a 3rd. Like His Love Stories!
This is gonna be weird. I wrote a Premam review very early on. And then I came back and reviewed it a second time. And now I am going to put these two reviews together into one awkward review.Continue reading
Important Question For Us to Answer! Is Jackie Shroff More or Less Appealing Naked Than Other Stars of His Age?
Popka Superstar claims that Jackie is not stomach turning when naked. I claim that he is. Now, for a fair and objective decision if this is ageism or Jackie-ism, I am going to list out the other actors of Indian film of the same age so we can compare bodies.Continue reading
Month of SRK: 3 Ways Shahrukh Gives Us Love
Did I already do a post similar to this this month? Whatever, I don’t care, the sun will never come out again (it’s so rainy here that it still looks like night at 3 in the afternoon), Albie Dog killed his bunny, and I can’t get anyone to see Housefull 4 with me (WHY??? It’s a reincarnation sex farce comedy!!!!! How are people not beating down my door to watch it?). I am going to lose myself in a collection of three categories of Shahrukh things that make me go “aaaaaahhhhhh”.Continue reading
Wednesday Watching Post: What Are You Reading and Watching and Thinking and Listening To The Last Week of Shahrukh Month?
Happy Wednesday! Well, for you. Not me. I hate the last week of Daylight savings. It is pitch dark right now and I had to get up and get dressed and brush my teeth while feeling like it is the middle of the night. Cannot WAIT for the time change so I can wake up with the sun again.Continue reading
Albus B. Barkeridge and the Case of the Betrayed Bunny, a Detective Story with Pictures!
I bought Albie Dog a little hat! And I found his bunny toy in the water dish. And these two things inspired me to write a pictorial tale of muuuuuuuuurrrrrrrder.Continue reading
Month of SRK: 4 Songs of Shahrukh in Pain
Kind a lame SRK post today, but yesterday’s was very long and detailed, plus I had that fun little game post earlier today, so I figure it evens out.Continue reading
Month of SRK: Game Post! Sex or Punch, Shahrukh’s Double Roles
I was going to make this marry or kill, but that would be way way too easy. Also, marry or sex. Obviously you marry the better man and kill or sex the other one. But what if sex or kill are your only choices? Well, then (I know you!), you would all be too soft-hearted to kill in order to avoid sex. You would put up with boring sex in order to save the life of the better man. So, new rule! Sex or a swift punch in the nose.Continue reading
Bigil Review (SPOILERS): If One Vijay is Good, Two is Better, and Three is Best!
What a big silly ungainly movie. I gave it a day to simmer in my head, and I am still not sure I fully followed the plot. But I will do my best to untangle!Continue reading
Month of SRK: Shahrukh’s Life Story in 5 Sections
I am writing this at work from memory, I don’t have my King of Bollywood (the book, not the person, the person is obviously always with me in my heart) with me, so forgive errors! Forgive, but correct, I will doublecheck and fix if I have to. Also, GOOD LORD this is long!!!!! Sorry about that.Continue reading
Bigil Review (No Spoilers): A Masala Tamil Chak De India
Super fun movie! If you like Vijay movies, you will like this one. It is right in his usual wheelhouse. If you don’t like Vijay movies, you will not like it. Choose wisely!Continue reading
Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Last Week of Shahrukh Month?
Happy Monday! I get to have coffee today and then go home to my nice clean apartment (I had a productive weekend). So yes, Happy Monday!Continue reading
Upcoming Movie Reviews! Premam, Chaahat, Ra.One, and Jab Harry Met Sejal (a new one!)
That Premam review is just for funsies, to try to get more people to watch it now that it is on Prime. But the other three are the last of our Shahrukh celebrations (so sad!).Continue reading
Sunday ReRun: Chalte Chalte, Rani and Shahrukh’s Best Rom-Com!
Huh, I forgot I did Paheli just last week. So we are having a little string of Rani-Shahrukh movie reviews.Continue reading
Silly Sunday/Month of SRK: 6 Cary Grant Movies for Shahrukh to Make
This is a very “niche” post, but it makes me happy. And I really hope at least SOME of you will read this and appreciate it. I can’t be the only one with an encyclopedic knowledge of old Cary Grant movies, right? Oh, and it’s also kind of a long one, I got distracted with the details of the plots a bit.Continue reading
Happy Diwali! Celebrate the Light that Defeats Darkness
I did actually do a whole series of posts explaining the Ramayana. But this one is just a quick thing so you understand Diwali and how it fits in sort of. It’s the same post from last year, but expanded.Continue reading
Friday Classic (on Saturday): Billu, Shahrukh’s Vision of the Lonely Star
Finally getting around to writing about this very interesting and important movie! I hope I am not the only one who finds it interesting and important.Continue reading
Month of SRK: 7 Shahrukh Brain Teasers
I’m having a lazy day, so I’m gonna be lazy and put up a series of questions and we will see how many answers we can come up with! Not discussion questions (although I hope they might lead to discussion), more trivia or riddle type questions.Continue reading
Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Sleep Off a Late Night
Happy Saturday! I’m still recovering from my up-all-night night with Shahrukh, so I’ll be taking it easy today. I’ll still try to get that Billu review I promised up and out, so at least you will have that. And of course the daily SRK post.Continue reading
Month of SRK: 8 SRK Movies To Learn His Life Story
Thanks for the suggestion Emily! Shahrukh (as most celebrities/actors do) has used his real life trauma to support his performances and promote his films. Which also means we can easily find 8 movies to watch if you want to get a sense of the emotional journey of the “real” SRK!Continue reading
The Shahrukh Letterman Interview: Shahrukh’s First Date with the Western Audience
It’s 3am, I just finished watching the episode, I have 13 pages of notes, and I am going to try to write this review before I fall asleep again. Forgive any typos and spelling errors, it is very late!Continue reading
