Friday/Saturday WatchAlong: Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon or Chennai Express or Dostana? To Cheer Us All Up?

So much snow! Cannot go outside, cannot drive anywhere, can’t even take out the trash that is piling up in my kitchen (yes, it is gross, but breaking my leg trying to go down the backsteps is also gross). Let’s cheer me up and take me out of myself!

Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon!!!!

It’s just shockingly hilariously delightfully bad. And also, not boring. And also, sexy! And also, has an animated parrot! And also, has Hrithik! Oh, and Birthday Boy Abhishek. It’s close to the ideal DCIB watchalong movie. And it’s on regular Prime!

Chennai Express

It’s so silly! It’s so dumb! It’s strangely romantic! It’s bright colored and pretty!!! It has Shahrukh! It has good songs! It’s on Netflix!!! Is this the ideal DCIB watchalong movie?


It has Abhishek! It has Miami! It has a ridiculous plot! It has great songs! It’s very Queer! Is this the best DCIB movie?

Oh, and usual question, Friday or Saturday for people this week?

  1. This is such a hard choice. I think 1. MPKDH and 2. Chennai Express. I would love it if it was Saturday, but totally understand if Friday works better for everyone else. Friday I have a stupid work call from 3:30 to 4:30 CT and will be able to join 1.5 hours late, which is sad!


    • On the other hand, both movies are over 2 hours long, so you could arrive late and still join for an hour!

    • Also, have you considered being on a work call while watching a movie in the background and typing comments?

      I’m not saying I have done this, but I MAY have done this.

      • Unfortunately, I need to be on a video call. I think they might notice if I am watching a movie and typing comments. But good suggestion!


        • The key with a video call, is to mute your computer, paste a vapid tilted head listening smile on your face, and then watch TV.

  2. Depends on the time – if it’s your early morning then I won’t be able to take part. If it’s your afternoon I can take part for part of the time on either day. I have a meeting to go to one one day and another meeting at my house on the other. So have to cram in chores etc in my mornings.

    I’d go for Chennai Express or Dostana because I have seen them before and can afford to miss a bit if I have to bow out early.


  3. Actually, I could probably do Saturday as well because I have to go on an errand adventure with my roommate Friday afternoon. Technically it could be rescheduled but like idk I’d feel bad. I’m leaving this comment in the middle of class while my kids are taking a quiz and we got big teacher news that would take too long to explain but it’s making my fellow teachers mad. So that’s where I’m at right now. Ok bye.
