Finally done with the boring pre-awesome movies! I mean, Karan-Arjun and Baazigar are good all around movies, and they are also SRKajol movies in that Shahrukh and Kajol co-star. But they aren’t SRKajol movies in the truest sense, that is, … Continue reading
Almost done! So excited! You realize this had more parts than my Dilwale summary at this point? Although I think that is because I am stretching it out so much, I think most Dilwale posts were about twice this long. … Continue reading
Poor Baazigar! I started this over a week ago, but I keep getting distracted by Sunny Deol (Ghayal Once Again opening soon! Which means I need to track down a copy of Ghayal the first one before that somehow!), and … Continue reading
I am moving so slowly through this thing! And I don’t know why. Well, I kind of know why. It’s because the plot is soooooooooooooo complicated that I feel like I can only go through about two twists before I … Continue reading
I am going off DVD! The last few sections I had it at hand, just in case I needed to review certain scenes as needed, but now I am at work and it would probably be a little obvious! So, … Continue reading
So, part 1 here, part 2 here, and now…..Part 3!!!!! Ek, Do, Teen, just like Madhuri says! (Did I forget to mention the reference to this in Wazir in my Wazir summary? There was a reference, and it was awesome. … Continue reading
Now I am worried, because I saw something somewhere else that indicated that Karan-Arjun came out after Baazigar. But I am pretty sure they started filming it first. So I am going to say my re-watch is in order of … Continue reading
Now that I have finished with Karan-Arjun, it is time to start the synopsis of the next SRKajol film! In chronological order! I wasn’t actually 100% confident that Karan-Arjun was before Baazigar, but #21yearsofKaranArjun was trending a couple days ago, … Continue reading
Rain, sick mother, cool shadow pattern A Great Setback! Kajol!
This doesn’t really match the theme week, but we had so much fun with this discussion yesterday, I feel like I have to give you the other side of it.
If Hindi film is going to torture me with ten million flagwaving movies, I am going to fight back by honestly talking about how some characters would just be better off overseas.
You ready to make an objective judgement? We already had the “which Shahrukh do you want to marry” question a while back (which descended in to anarchy once the element of money/house was added, we all want the Goa house). … Continue reading
This is one of Shahrukh’s earliest roles, and one he consistently lists as a film and a performance he is most proud of. But, why?
I don’t actually think these are “better” endings, I just like happy endings, even if they aren’t true to the rest of the narrative. Every film should end with a marriage and a baby and a happy reprise of the … Continue reading
This isn’t really a discussion post, but it isn’t a 101 exactly either. It’s just it’s own thing for us all to consider.
This is a question someone asked me ages back and it has stuck with me. So I am stealing it to see if anyone can come up with a better answer than me!
I already did two posts on the criticisms I agree with (here and here). This is Shahrukh month, so we aren’t going to deal with those. Instead we are going to vent about the criticisms that tend to come up … Continue reading
That sounds a bit gruesome, I don’t mean we should chop him up into 20 pieces. I just mean 20 images of 20 different body parts. Which is a totally sane thing to collect and consider. And not at all … Continue reading
Happy Columbus Day! I actually have to go to work, because it’s one of those holidays that not everyone gets off. Fine with me, Columbus was a horrible horrible person. Anyway, help me ignore Columbus by asking me questions!
It’s Kajol’s birthday! YAAAAAAAAAAY!!!! I LOVE her! Love love love! So I am going to do a full 44 reasons I love her, one for every year she’s been alive. Oh boy! (this is an updated and reposted post from … Continue reading
I am very pleased with this week’s post, but it didn’t get many viewers, and maybe that is because it was a totally new story? People do tend to like remakes and sequels. It’s why we got Dhadak, after all. … Continue reading
This video went up on Friday, but I have had a busy weekend, so I didn’t get a chance to watch it closely until now. Lot’s of interesting things to discuss!
Well, this is an interesting little burst of birthdays. Ekta is in here too, but she’s not a professional face person, so I’m not going to mix her in with the rest. But I think it is fair for Dimple, … Continue reading
Happy Birthday Shilpa! You aren’t the most talented or trained of actresses, but you are definitely one of the most loveable! In honor of your birthday, 12 reasons that I love you, one for every two years since Baazigar. (this … Continue reading
May day, in addition to being the international day of labor, is also the international day of “hanging flowers and candy on your neighbor’s doors”. And the Maypole dance and various other obviously pagan spring rituals. But whatever, it works! … Continue reading
