Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Day Before Vinod Khanna’s Birthday?

Happy Monday! I am back at my parents’, where the heat is turned on and the apartment is too hot, versus my place where the heat isn’t turned on and it is freezing. But I think opening the window at their place, and digging out my space heater at mine, will give me a happy mediun.

Here is where you get to ask me anything you want! What I think of your favorite movie, why that actress’ hair is like that, whatever! Just keep swinging back to this post all week as you think of new things to ask.

Now, question for you! It’s Vinod Khanna’s birthday tomorrow, only one question to ask about him: Hot or Not?

For me, NOT! He’s too weird and puffy and old feeling, even when he was young. Just too much in general. Somehow both too manly, and not manly enough. I don’t like it. And to support my views, I give you this song:

  1. Are you kidding? He was a great man beast with burning black eyes, of course I find him hot. There’s a shot in Mera Gaon Mera Desh where he leans over the river and drinks from it like a tiger that’s one of my favourite shots ever in a movie.

    And besides that, he’s responsible for such homoerotic classics as the Hera Pheri shorts scene, Qurbani in general, and two of the very small group of homoerotic Govinda films. That said I don’t mess with his other post OSHO films. Although he had a weary air when he was old that I also like.

    I’m trying to refind my favourite Vinod Khanna song AFTER the one where he shares a bed with Govinda because it’s deeply hilarious and he dances with the heroine in matching dungarees but I’ve forgotten which film it was. It’s like they stuck a bear in bell bottomed dungarees and made him dance.


  2. As a puffy woman, I’m not a fan of puffy men.

    Question: Not too many movies streaming these days. I’ve seen all the good ones and moved on to the series. Last two nights it was Four More Shots Please, part okay, part dreadful. Are you going to revue?


    • I have heard from many people that 4 More Shots is pretty dreadful. So I avoided watching, and reviewing it. Sorry!

      If you haven’t watched it, Made in Heaven is wonderful and I reviewed it, also Little Things (slow start but picks up), also Mentalhood if you can get the ALTBalaji app. Oh, and Masaba Masaba!

  3. Do you remember this crazy story about tamil Arjun Reddy remake they made and throw away and made again with a new cast and crew? I read that the rejected version will release on one of ott platforms. I’m very curious how it is. I know it’s not my kind of story and I never wanted to watch Arjun Reddy or other remakes, but the trailer looks good and Dhruv also acts very well. I must admit I was very sceptical about him, but after seeing the trailer I’m impressed.


    • Everyone had a lot of expectations for this version because it was directed by Bala but people seem to be disappointed. Bala directed Sethu which has Vikram play a character somewhat similar to Arjun Reddy/any other version. Everyone is talking about the role of one character, who was not central in other versions but gets a more prominent role here. Other than that people are not having good things to say about it. Also, it is pay per view.


    • I do, but I can’t find it at the moment. It has to do with the power of the male star and the age of the audience. If the male star is playing two decades younger in order to please the audience, it’s more believable if his love interest is the same age.

      In the case of Dayavan, it’s a remake of Nayakan, so it covers 3 decades in our hero’s life. Madhuri plays his wife who dies young, so she has to be played by a 20 year old. But Vinod has to be older so he can believably play the later scenes as a 50 year old.
