Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me in MLK Day?

Happy Monday! I have to work! Boooo!!!! But I am hoping for a slightly less busy day since a lot of our clients might not be working.

Here is where you get to ask me anything you want from “who was MLK?” to “how is your hair dye doing?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new things you want to know.

Now, question for you! If you could dye Shahrukh’s hair any color but black, what would you pick?

Hmmm. I think I would go for a sort of bright maroon. He looks good in maroon, and I think he could carry off a non-natural color tone.

  1. Have you seen this?

    I was very disappointed with Vijay Devarakonda after his last movies, but still there was like 10% chance I could watch it, but with every name I read on the poster I was more and more like:
    Nah
    Nah
    Naah
    Naaah
    Naaaaah
    From all the directors out there they chose Puri Jagannadh. From all the actresses Anaya Pandey. And can we talk about this title: Liger. Saala Crossbread?

    • Yes! And I am EXCITED by all the things that disappoint you! Except for Vijay, I am over him. World’s Greatest Lover did me in. But I actually like Puri when he is given full reign for his weird visions, and the very very strange title “Liger” makes me think he might be leaning into the weird on this one. And I like Ananya Panday and I don’t care what you say! She’s charming onscreen, she’s young and fresh, and she could bring a really interesting energy to an action film heroine.

      • LOL this movie is definitely not an Angie film, and I’m happy because it will be easier to skip it.

        I’m only a little disappointed because I always thought Vijay Devarakonda is that one southern actor who can make it big in Bollywood. And I wanted him to make a hindi movie. But in my opinion he should start as a romantic hero. Yes, I know he is fed up with romances, but I think that with the right romantic script he could be another Rajesh Khanna or Hrithik Roshan, because he has the looks, the talent and charisma.

      • I didn’t know the tiger and the lions can have kids, and that such a hybrid exists. Well, at least I have learned something thanks to this film 😉

  2. Are you going to watch Kajol’s Netflix film? I saw it and thought it was a waste of great acting. It’s like no one can write an interesting AND fun role for a woman over 30 anymore.

    I would like SRK to have blue streaks.

  3. I don’t know if you remember, but I was obsessed with the movie Parugu, partly because of the relationship between the heroine and her servant. I read up on servants in India. I read about the fiasco of the Indian diplomat int he U.S. who couldn’t pay her servant a minimum wage but refused to go without her. I read about the 2017 servant revolt near Delhi. Every time I see a movie I pay close attention to the servants.

    I just finished Netflix’s Is Love Enough Sir – often referred to as just Sir, and it was like a gift. It never brings up caste, and the power imbalance, even with the best intentions is so well done. The movie wasn’t a total downer at the ending, though I still would have thought of it as a gift if it had been.

    I read a book of Russian Fairytales that had a cinderella story, where the fairy godmother was a fish in a well. It started me on a hunt and I found Irish cinderella tales as well as the famous French one. The cinderella idea is so prevalent throughout western cultures, so accepted. This morning I woke up and wondered, does India have a cinderella story? I suspect not, but I don’t know.

    • India has a very famous Cinderella/Ring Cycle story called “Shakuntala”. A prince is hunting in the forest and meets a beautiful maiden and they fall in love. They get married with the trees as witnesses and he swears never to forget her. But then he goes home and on the way he loses the ring that will make him remember her (I think) and by the time he gets to the palace he has no memory of her. Since he never comes back, she (now pregnant) goes to find him. She goes to the palace and tells him she is his wife, and he is very kind to her but sadly says that is simply not true, so she goes away again. And then he finds the ring that gives him his memory, it all comes back, and he is deeply deeply sad. He spends years mourning his lost love until one day he is hunting again and meets a beautiful young boy. Who is of course his son, and who reunites his two parents.

      And now I am thinking, this should totally be our next DCIB book club pick! There’s a really great English translation that’s very short and nice.
