Hindi Film 101/2010s, the Decade Rap Arrived in Hindi Film

This is fun, these random decade round up posts as stuff occurs to me. It’s slow days anyway as we all prepare for New Years Eve (and, of course, the New Years Day tweetalong!), so I might as well put up random stuff. Oh, and forgive me if I mix up “rap” and “hip-hop”, Reflects on Life explained the difference to me months ago and I mostly understand it, but when we get into trying to use them as verbs and adjectives and adverbs, I got confused again.

Random mixture of ideas today, I know most people don’t read these, but for those few of you who enjoy them these thoughts were too good to resist. Especially a movie where Akshay gets what’s coming to him. You can skip to the end if you just want to read that one

Happy Birthday Salman! Lowkey Celebration This Year, Just a List of Your Best Songs

Happy Birthday Salman! Poor Salman, almost a Christmas baby, tends to get lost in the holiday shuffle. I’m worn out and still have more family events to go to, so I am going to slack on him this year too. At least I will hope for a celebration in the comments with the rest of you chiming in with songs I missed.

UPDATE: oh right, I forgot the other reason I stopped these posts, it’s been an hour and this post only got 4 views so far. Not a lot of interest for intense scene by scene discussion.
