Friday WatchAlong: What Should We Watch for Sonam Kapoor’s Birthday/Pride???

Oh boy! More Pride movies! And it’s Sonam’s birthday! And because she is such a Prideful person, lots of options in her filmography.

Veere Di Wedding

This would be my hands down top choice, except that it is locked in the horrible Zee5 limbo so we have to watch it on einthusan. Wonderful long term same sex couple in the background of a story that is overall about modern independent people being themselves.

Veere Di Wedding is an apology for feminism and doesn't really celebrate  independent women

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha

We’ve already watched it as a group sooooooooooo many times, and yet I do not care! It’s still good!

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga: Moving Towards Positive LGBTQIA+  Representation

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

Really good representation of drag performing with Salman’s friend who is a straight man, but is referred to and treated as a woman when in costume.

    • Yes, but the same could be said for the other two movies!!!!

  1. I am not sure if this is possible, but I have seen ELKDAL a lot recently so I would pick Veere or Prem Ratan. Obviously, I will still be excited to watch Ek Ladki if that ends up being picked.

    • I like Veere! Like I said, it would be my top choice if it were more available. It’s probably still my top choice with the lowered availability.

      • Hello! Thought I’d pop back in and ask we would possibly be able to watch the movie on Friday by any chance this week? I’ve had to book a morning appointment for Theo on Saturday so my Saturday morning is a bit shot. I know Fridays can be inconvenient, so I completely understand if the preference is still for Saturday. I’ll watch the movie afterwards and follow along with the comments!

        • I AM SO WORRIED ABOUT THEO!!!! More worried than perhaps I should be about an Internet Puppy I have never met? Anyway, whatever Theo needs, we will do.

          You and Genevieve are the ones who really prefer Saturday mornings, and Genevieve is spending time with her children (like a FOOL) so it’s just you. no problem moving to Friday. We could even do a slightly different time. Is 3pm Central still best for you? Or would 4pm or 2pm be better?

          • 4 works best but 3 would work also and I would just be a little late! Thank you for worrying about Theo. He is doing better. He is also on antibiotics for now and they also want to do an x-ray to make sure there is no obstruction. It would help if he didn’t constantly want to eat every bug he sees outside! Stupid puppy!

            I can also do Saturday, but it would just have to be a bit later in the day like 11:30 CT. But that is obviously smack in the middle of the day and I didn’t want to spoil anyone’s Saturday.
