Tuesday Morning Questions (Because Monday Was a Holiday)

Happy Tuesday!!!! I am hard at work after a lovely exhausting 3 day weekend, eager to talk to my DCIB peeps again!

Here is where you get to ask me anything from “what did you do on your 3 day weekend?” to “why did you abandon us and not put up a Monday post yesterday?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new questions!!!!

Now, question for you! Yesterday my parents and I went to see First Movie in Theaters at the Music Box art theater in Chicago. We saw Playtime, the Jacques Tati French classic, because we are classy like that. If you could pick any more in the world as your first movie back in theaters, what would it be?

I’d pick DDLJ. Not just because I love it, but also because it is a Big Screen Experience kind of movie. You need the audience to cheer and hiss, and you need to see the big screen visuals of mustard fields and mountains.

Follow up question, which of these things is more irritatingly parental? My mother saying “Hello!” to every single person we passed, or my father giving me a lecture about how my wallet is going to be stolen if I don’t zip my purse closed?

I’m going with my Mom saying “Hello!” My father was being irritating, but my mom was being EMBARRASSING.

  1. I’m watching a telugu movie now and just saw this:


    They literally pixelated the little goat the girl is carring! The goat is alive, not wounded, there is no blood (the song with the goat is on youtube and not there the animal is not hidden) so why cover it? I think it’s because some people are so strict vegetarians they can’t stand seeing farm animals. What do you think?

    If you could pick any more in the world as your first movie back in theaters, what would it be?
    Katyar Kaljat Ghusli because the soundtrack is a masterpiece and I would love to hear it very loudly in theather.


    • Maybe it’s because people get really upset at the idea of animals being used on films? Or maybe the goat’s penis was showing?

      YES! I mean, not “yes” to that movie becuase I haven’t seen it, but yes to theater audio. Especially surround sound where you get the different levels of music from different directions.

  2. I watched Bahubaali at home on my wide-screen but I wish it would come again to theaters. What could be better than Prabhas flying thru the air singing Dhivara?


    • It really was AMAZING. I saw it in theaters 11 times I think. SO GOOD.

  3. Aww! I LOVE that your mom says hello to every person you pass. It is just so nice and endearing and the epitome of the “friendly midwesterner.” Just thinking about it makes me smile! Lectures from dad can be frustrating, especially when they are probably right but you just don’t want to listen because you are an adult darnit and can do what you want! I am saying this as my dad just lectured me about eating my meals on time to prevent “acidity.”

    I don’t have a one particular movie that I would want to watch in the theater. The movies I have enjoyed most in theraters are ones where there is a lot of hooting and hollering, like War and Simmba! So something like that would be fun at the theaters!


    • My parents were all grumpy when they read this post, so your comment should make their day!!!

      I am sure you know The Music Box 🙂 The tradition there is, especially at the matinee of classic films, the audience always applauds at the end and applauds the organist when they finish the introit. It wasn’t hooting and hollering, but just being part of a collective applause experience was amazing.

      • I know The Music Box but I have actually never seen anything there. I will clearly have to rectify that. Thank you for educating me on the applause tradition at the theater!

        Oh! I forgot to tell you, I started watching Radhe. I am only about 20 minutes in and while I appreciate Salman slimming down a bit for the role, and enjoy the silly Salman jokes about being dropped off at Galaxy and eating biryani, the Salman-Disha pairing is just too weird for me! I have no idea why since I have seen movies with all the Khans and others like Akshay Kumar opposite very young actresses and while I am not a huge fan of it, I can handle it. Even Salman opposite Sonakshi Sinha in Dabang didn’t bother me and that was Sinha’s first movie and she was only 23! But something about the Salman-Disha pairing is jarring. I wonder if it is because Disha just looks and acts really young. I sitll plan to finish watching the movie and maybe now that the initial shock has passed, I can enjoy it.


        • Next time you come to Chicago, I am so taking you to the Music Box!!!!

          Agree with you about Salman Disha. maybe because he is playing young as well? In Dabangg, the age difference was acknowledged more or less. But in Radhe, it’s like we are supposed to think Salman is her best/only option.

  4. DDLJ in a theater would be tremendous. After I saw WEst Side Story in our local theater I couldn’t help but wonder how much it would cost to rent it out and get it to show DDLJ. But who could I get to see it??? I would get more takers for Don.


    • Took me a minute to realize you weren’t talking about movie audiences in general, just within your household 🙂

  5. I’d like to watch DDLJ also, only with an audience that knows and loves it and not a respectfully silent Japanese one. Although, Japanese audiences do surprise me. I’ll never forget the audience clapping and crying during Dangal and generally behaving in a way I’ve never experienced.

    From Twitter it looks like Prithviraj is going to be in a movie with A DOG. I was going to ask if anyone knew anything about this, but who am I kidding. It’s not like I’m going to miss a movie with Prithviraj and a dog.
