Friday/Saturday WatchAlong: What Should We Watch The Week Before School Starts?

Happy Thursday! Put this off a bit last minute, oops! And the only exciting birthday this week is Jim Sarbh, and the only good Jim Sarbh watchalong movie is Raabta which we already watched. So, my mind is a blank!

It’s been a while since we did an SRK film so, just throwing it out there, do we want to go back to him this week?

Main Hoon Na

Fall, school starting, all that stuff? Plus, who doesn’t love Main Hoon Na?

Amazon.com: Main Hoon Na POSTER Movie (11 x 17 Inches - 28cm x 44cm) (2004)  (German Style A): Posters & Prints

Kal Ho Na Ho

New York in fall looks really pretty in this movie, and he kind of “schools” Preity and Saif.

Chamatkar

Another school based movie! He’s a sweet schoolmaster, it’s set at a college, very thematic.

Or, of course, ANYTHING ELSE

What are you in the mood for this week?

And is Friday afternoon or Saturday morning better for you?

    • I had the same thought! I saw Padmaavat on his filmography and thought “if only it was less Islamophobic/racist and more cheesy, it would be PERFECT”

        • Have you seen Veer? Now THAT’S a cheesy historical pick. Padmavaat is nothing in comparison.

          • You didn’t say Camp! You said “cheesy”! So no Canon Gay, but plenty of cheese

          • Okay, I have to ask. What’s the different between campy vs cheesy? Whether it is intentional or not?

          • I would say, Queerness. You can have a completely cheesy thing which has no queerness at all. Like, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is cheesy. Or you can have something that is cheesy with “queerness” in the broadest sense, anything that “queers” social norms, like K3G. And that is Camp. So my definition would be, Little Anjali in K2H2 is cheesy, Poo in K3G is campy.

  1. *whispers* let’s watch Student of the Year again

    I’m kidding. I’d been thinking about suggesting a Kal Ho Naa Ho watchalong for a while, but couldn’t think of a reason, and I’d look like a sadist because everyone would just cry.
