Friday/Saturday WatchAlong: For Aamir!!!! Mann, Lagaan, or Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na?

I know I know, everyone wants to do Hum Hain Rahe Pyar Ke. Which has, irrationally, made me NOT want to pick it. This is the same reason I never sew with a thimble. Because my mother tells me to sew with a thimble. Anyway, there are other Aamir Options!


The Indian remake of An Affair to Remember! It’s gorgeous young Manisha, it’s fun Rani cameo, it’s Aamir being all soulful, and it has ORPHANS! Oh, and it’s on Netflix and youtube.


It’s, you know, Lagaan! Cricket, Rahman songs, crazy history, Aamir in sandals with lifts built in. Also, to be fair, Aamir at possibly PEAK Aamir attractiveness. Naughty, eyebrows, earring, all the good stuff. Also on Netflix.

Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na

Aamir isn’t onscreen, but he did produce it. And the whole thing feels like a throwback to the nice fun sweet early Aamir 90s movies. Plus, Aamir’s nephew Imraan is (possibly) even more attractive as a young man than Aamir was. Also on Netflix.

Oh, and Friday or Saturday? Which is better? Unless you pick Lagaan, in which case it HAS to be Saturday because I don’t have time on Friday for all of that.

  1. Why do you HATE US??? Maybe the shaman will tell you to watch Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke as part of your get happy regimen. It is guaranteed to make you happy!

    Anyways, I hate Mann so no to that. I adore Jaane Tu. So if you pick that, can it please be Friday? I am not available Saturday morning but I am available anytime after 12:00 pm CT.


  2. (For real, though, I would be okay with any of those movies. Don’t yet know if I will be available at all on either Friday or Saturday, so don’t take me into account picking times.)


    • No one is available this week!!! Kirre is overworked, and Genevieve has a concussion, it’s all hopeless.
