Okay, this week I started with Convenience! These are all movies available on Netflix or Prime, or both! Oh, and some of them are also kind of silly and lightweight.
Dil Maange More
So sue me, I like it! It’s a movie based on a Pepsi ad campaign slogan, as all great art is. Our confused hero Shahid Kapoor can’t decide which girl he likes between Tulip Joshi, Soha Ali Khan, and Ayesha Takia. He’s a small town boy struggling in the big city of Bombay, the colors are bright, the songs are good, and he works at a cd store! How old-fashioned is that????
Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na
This is an actual good movie (unlike the other movies). Group of college friends graduate, and the male and female best friends at the center of their group have to figure out if they are just friends or something more? They date other people, they figure out their futures, they grow up, and maybe love happens? You have to watch to find out!
Love Breakups Zindagi
Brace yourself, this is a charming movie made with NO MONEY. Like, they couldn’t even afford extras for the wedding scene in the middle so it feels like a big wedding with no guests. But it’s charming! Two nice people are the respective best friends of a bride and groom at a wedding. They are nice together, they both get involved in wedding stuff and are thrown together a lot, and then they return to their “real” lives but somehow can’t let go of this new friendship. Oh, and there is a cameo from a Very Very Famous Person.
It’s weird, it’s old, Jackie Shroff goes around in nothing but a dish towel, there are many reasons not to watch this film. But Juhi is so great! And Amrita Singh is so soap opera evil-y! And it would be just soooooooooooooooo much fun to watch in a group and rag on the clothes and the EVIL and cheer in Juhi.
Okay, vote! Or suggest stuff, but only stuff on Netflix/Prime!
