Sunday WatchAlong: Dilwale! 8am Chicago Time!

Woot, Dilwale! For Christmas! Kind of! Anyway, it feels Christmassy to me. And a nice relaxing way to spend a Sunday morning. Oh, and since RSVPs were low, reminder that if no one shows up within the first 15 min, I will just reschedule.

Dilwale! It’s on Netflix, should be easy to find no matter where you are in the world.

At 8am I will put up an “and PLAY” comment and we will go from there!

  1. I love Kajol’s dress here. And it’s the same style in later scenes too. When I was growing up, my Mom’s “nice occasion dress” was this style, shirtdress with big skirt and belt.

  2. I know I say this every time, but it’s true every time. This was the song where Kajol was most nervous after 2 years away. And I feel like you can see that, SRK sort of guiding and taking care of her so there’s this real world caring that layers on top of the character’s love story and just makes it lovely.

  3. That whole sequence could totally be a song video on it’s own. I mean, an American style music video where you get the mood of the older lovers meeting again. Add on an epilogue where they both go back to other spouses, and you really have something lovely and bittersweet.

  4. Also, Rocky is SO GOOD. I want to watch it again. Really, that love story is up there with the best ever, actually the whole movie is right up there. Including the fact that “Italien Stallion” is treated as a sort of silly name.


  5. Explaining the whole plot to the seven year old (who turns 8 this week) kinda shows the silliness of the whole – she thinks he killed her father gunplay.


  6. Normally I am anti the “loyalty to family over love” plot. But in this case a) it’s SRK! He’s the best! and b) it feels less like loyalty to family and more like basic self-respect and not being willing to roll over.

  7. Thinking the film was over the 10 year old left to take a bath and the 14 year old left to use his birthday coupon to play video games. So now it is just me and the seven year old. Who would have left except I told him one more fight scene was coming.

  8. In the grand scheme of movie weddings, this one is actually kind of nice. The ceremony happens,t hey even get a reception, and then the fight is over and you can go back for dessert.

  9. Thank you for the watch a long Margaret!!! That was fun. I haven’t seen the movie in a while, and I do really like it. I was going to take the kids to a Christmas village in the mountains, but there is such a big storm I’m worried we would be burried in an avalanche. So now I think our day may entail a lot more TV, yet I don’t think anything else we watch will be as fun.

    Thanks again!
