Happy Monday! I was super productive this weekend, if “productive” equals “buying stuff”. Which I guess it might in this case, since I bought stuff I needed like a new space heater and chest of drawers. Anyway, very excited for both those to arrive and my apartment to be all autumn-y.
Here is where you get to ask me anything you want from “are you seeing Vikram Vedha or Ponniyin Selvan this weekend?” to “Tell me the backstory of Ponniyin Selvan!” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new questions.
Now, question for you! In honor of Ponniyin Selvan releasing, what Epic Complicated Novel do you want to see made into an Indian movie?
Hmm. I don’t like many epic complicated novels, with multigeneration connections etc. Oh! I’m gonna be Basic, and say Harry Potter! Not literally Harry Potter, but all the complex relationships in a different setting. Harry as the unloved orphan who finds friendship, the Harry-Hermione-Ron triangle, the complex love-hate with Alan Rickman (honestly can’t remember the character’s name), and so on. It would work perfectly well in any setting from modern IIT campus, to ancient training camp for warriors, to rural estate run by Dumbledore with his various great nieces and nephews brought in to try to earn their inheritance.
