Let’s Play Another Game! How Would You Do On an Indian Film Quiz?

More holiday fun!  Probably not as fun as the MadLibs post, or yesterday’s “hook-up date marry kill” characters post (which you can still comment on) but still pretty good.  And the best part, there are no clear answers!  Every game could end up different.  and the other best part is, it gives us all something light and brainless to do while we all (including myself) are overwhelmed with holiday schedules.

Box Office Report: 2.0 Opens Up New Markets, Big in Australia and Germany

Don’t believe the hype!  2.0 did very very good, but still not as good as many other films of the past.  The box office is still sliding.  At least, the international box office.  From what I am seeing, the Indian box office truly was record breaking. (as always numbers from bollywoodhungama.com)

Katching Up With Koffee: Ajay and Kajol!!! A Marriage That Works for Them

Huh.  Well, the season is really going now, and it looks like this will be season of interesting personal stories and connections.  I am down with that!  After Saif-Sara and Janhvi-Arjun, we have another very private and unusual connection between two people.  Actually, three people.  Because Karan is part of it this time around.

Monday Morning Questions Post: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Day after PC Got Married?

Well, the new Mr. and Mrs. Jonas have now complete their first night of wedding bliss.  There’s an image to wake you up in the morning!  Maybe with a strange sense of mystery and confusion, maybe with a shudder of horror, but certainly with a little boost of energy to get you going.

PC-Nick Sangeet Video! Feels Like A Promo to Get You To Purchase the Full Wedding Video

I was having lunch with my parents today, which is why I am late posting this, and my Dad asked what was happening with “Priyanka and the Little Guy”.  I’m just sharing this with you so that, like me, you will now have that phrase indelibly burned into your mind any time you see PC-Nick coverage.

Sunday ReRun Jaan-E-Mann: My Favorite Movie That No One Else Likes

This is I think the first serious review I wrote. Back when no one was reading me. So I am reposting it so you can enjoy it now. And also because it’s December and no one much is reading, so I might as well put up a review that I’ve already posted twice.

2.0 Review (SPOILERS): Rajinikanth as 3 Separate Characters, and Akshay as 1 Indelible One

As I already said in my No Spoilers review, this move is surprisingly good!  Well, “surprising” to me, because I usually don’t like Shankar, and the trailer made it seem like just shallow action.  So, I recommend watching it if possible without having read spoilers.  But if you don’t believe it can really be that good, read the spoilers and then go see it anyway.  Oh, and I should say it isn’t a total “anyone will love it” movie, so if you don’t like action science superhero films, you probably won’t like this.

Sunday ReRun Announcement! Jaan-E-Mann! Super Late So I Don’t Expect Most of You to Watch It But Who Cares It’s December!

Oops, totally forgot to schedule something for this Sunday.  So you all have only a little bit of time to watch the movie in advance, if you want to.  Or of course you can watch it later and just swing back to the review once you do.  Anyway, it doesn’t really matter, because this is a review of a movie I love love love and I am putting it up as a gift for me me me.

TGIF Annual Holiday Season ReRun: Men in Beards! Like SANTA!!!

It’s the annual (and sometimes other random times in the year) treat!!!!!  Men in Beards!  For Christmas!  Like SANTA!!!  Yes, I know it isn’t Christmas yet, but I just barely managed to finish my Delhi 6 review at work and I still have to do blechy end of month work stuff today, so you are going to have to be happy with a TGIF rerun (although there’s a couple new photos).  If you want something new, check out Fawad’s Birthday Post.
