Friday WatchAlong: Hrithik Fest Continues, or Disco Dancer? Friday Afternoon or Saturday Early Morning?

So many decisions to make! So I thought I should give y’all extra notice to make up your minds and give suggestions.

We have been having a little accidental Hrithik Fest the past few weeks and after Jodha-Akbar, Bang Bang, and War, there is only one remaining super fun Hrithik film: Mujshe Dosti Karoge.

Hrithik and Rani, amazing dancing, melodramatic romantic plot, and best of all Sexy Psycho Hrithik.

I was all set with that as our likely movie for the week, and then I opened up Netflix and Disco Dancer is available! I cannot over sell this movie. When you picture a 1980s Hindi film titled “Disco Dancer”, that is what it is, but times two.

So, which of these movies do we want? Obviously best option would be a hybrid, a movie called “Disco Dancer” starring Hrithik, but that tragically does not exist.

Next Question! Two weeks ago we did the movie super early on Saturday (like, 7:30am Chicago time) and it worked surprisingly well for all involved. So I am just going to through it out there every week now and let people decide if Friday afternoon 3pm Chicago time, or Saturday morning 7:30am Chicago time is better for you?

  1. I will watch Disco Dancer any day, any time. It always cheers me up. I wouldn’t mind also seeing more Hrithik though because I don’t really know his stuff. Anyway, I don’t know which of the times is easier for me to make.


    • I already made a date with my friend group to show them all Disco Dancer on Wednesday. It is maybe the most perfectly named movie of all time.

      And what I am getting from you is that you will watch either movie, and may be equally unavailable at both times. So that’s a wash both ways. Oh well.

  2. You know me, I love Hrithik and MDK is one of his that I haven’t seen.

    If there’s a prevailing wish for Disco Dancer though I don’t mind expanding my mind!

    I can’t make Friday but I can definitely make Saturday morning 🙂


    • Oh man! Looks like I may have to decide all by myself which movie we should watch. I’m doing Disco Dancer with friends tomorrow, maybe that will be kind of a dress rehearsal, if it goes well then we can do it on DCIB. But if it goes poorly, back to happy Hrithik.

    • Looks like Saturday is definite, but Disco Dancer or Hrithik is still up in the air. I’m excited! I like doing Saturdays!

      • I have not seen Disco Dancer in a long time so I would totally be fine with it as well. Plus, it is Disco Dancer. . . it is kind of awesome!


  3. My schedule has been extremely heavy this week and I’m not at all sure that I would be able to watch a movie until midnight on Saturday, so please make the timing call without me (although I hope you do another Saturday in the future). Since I won’t be there anyway, I hope you guys watch MDK because I’ve seen it already and I really want to watch DD with the crew (at some unspecified point in the future).
