  1. So many movies, so many reviews. Good stuff! 🙂

    You have reviewed CDI though haven’t you?

    And if you haven’t done Dil Se then that has surely got to be next cab off the rank after Paheli,which is coming up.

    • I really thought I had reviewed CDI, but no! A lot of the non-reviewed ones I have done a short analysis or comparison kind of post about, but not a full review. I’ve done that for CDI, but it wasn’t a real review.

      Dil Se is soooooooo depressing! I’m gonna put that one off until I am in a really good mood so it can’t bring me down. I was thinking after Paheli I just start going through chronologically, so Deewana next. But maybe CDI instead, it is a crowd favorite after all.

      • I would dearly love a Twitter watch along of Dil Se. Just throwing it out there. Just commenting on Farah’s wack choreography and Shah Rukh’s, Manisha’s, and Preity’s attempts to get it right would be super fun. One time when Farah really did a disservice to the music, I feel.

        *SPOILERS* below, but non-specific

        It is depressing, but if you don’t see death as an ending, or believe that people go to hell if they die in certain ways, then the ending isn’t so sad. I feel it as more of a setting free. This goes with my theory that Amar doesn’t really fit in this world either–that’s why he has picked a profession that takes him far from home, why he takes so many risks as a journalist, and why he is so instantly obsessed with Megha. In my head, anyway.

        • Yeah, it’s not the Dil Se characters so much that make me sad, it is that it is based on a real life situation. The same story but about alien attacks or something, I wouldn’t care. And if I were to write a review, I would feel obligated to sincerely address the real life situation and research the history and give statistics and context and help people sympathize with and understand Manisha’s trauma I DON’T WANT TO. If I were a different person and could write a review that was just “so pretty! so romantic! 7 stages of love!” I wouldn’t care.

          And my Dil Se twitter watch along would be the most depressing thing ever. “Here is a link to the UN human rights report! Fun!” “Look at cute little girl flashback Manisha! Here is a link to donate money to schools and orphanages!” “This costume is ridiculous, this song is a metaphor for the thousands dead in state sponsored genocide!”

          • Hmmm. I wonder why this movie affects you this way and not others which have equal brutality, which may not be based on a real actual case, but certainly represent things that commonly happen. Just curious. However, the fact is that it does affect you that way, which sucks. So, I won’t bug you about it anymore. 🙂

          • There is a lot of anger in you, when it comes to this movie, I feel. Maybe not the fault of the movie but of what it narrates.
            I remember that after having watched DilSe for the first time I just wanted to go out into the street and bang at poles and walls and fences and shout my anger out of me. But it was just after midnight…and with all the sleeping people in our village…
            So I stopped crying, washed my face and opened the laptop to look up this amazing actor of whom I only knew the name but had watched five movies till then.

          • Yup! And a lot of anger and a lot of sadness. Which is, I think, what the film intended to evoke. So it is a sign of how well the film is made, but still makes it hard for me to watch.

    • Oh dear, now I have to rewatch it because there is someone who will have the movie fresh in her mind to correct me! The pressure!

  2. I can’t believe how many movies I still have to watch. I must be at 50% now. It’s taking me a bit as I’m thoroughly German in my media consumption: Every film must be watched along with every interview, press conference, and promo appearances. Sigh… I don’t know if one life time is enough for all this.
