Trailers and Songs! Baadshaho, A Gentleman, Bareilly Ki Barfi

Let’s through out a nice general discussion type post!  For those of you who aren’t interested in my scene by scene of JHMS or Monday Malayalam or Tuesday Tamil.  We can all talk about Ajay Devgn’s midlife crisis and how increasingly charming Siddharth and Kriti are looking in comparison.

Netflix List for August! JAB WE MET!!! See What Imtiaz Was Doing Before JHMS! (Thank you Accessbollywood.net)

Accessbollywood.net does the real work of keeping this list updated, if you want a day by day update, subscribe to them.  My update is only like once a month or so when I feel like it.  But it does give some tips on what to watch and what not to watch, so that’s helpful! I hope.

Hindi Film 101 One-Off: Music Digital Rights Stuff

Remember yesterday when I was driven to an existential crisis by the way the release of “Phurr” kept being delayed and delayed?  Well, googling around today revealed there is a fascinating industry story behind it.  “Phurr” is being publicized as the first song to be released behind a “paywall”.  Which isn’t actually true, but that’s another story. (also, it’s on iTunes now, but also on Saavn, if you pay for the app like I do, you can download and listen as much as you want)

Phurr Promotions and Xeno’s Paradox (I Went on Twitter Again and it Scared Me)

I feel like I have used this example before, but I can’t remember what for.  Anyway, the new song from Jab Harry Met Sejal is (supposedly) coming ever closer to us.  And yet I find myself thinking, “will it ever actually arrive?  Or is this a Xeno’s paradox situation?” (and also, once again, I should not go on twitter!)

Random Fun Photo Post Thanks to Hrithik’s Facebook

Be aware, there is almost no content to this post.  It’s just a funny photo that my friend showed me, and another photo I found for myself as a bonus.  And a third thing that looks like news, but actually isn’t. (if you want content, check out my Jab Harry Met Sejal series)

Trailer Post! New Farhan Movie, And Non-SRK Songs

Trailers!  Not terribly exciting ones, but I am so desperate for content that I will take it.  And at least the Farhan one raises some interesting questions about coincidence versus copying (in other words, it has the same plot as Qaidi Band and I don’t know why).

New Jab Harry Met Sejal Song, Hawayein!!!! All With the Longing Gazes and Loving Care

Well, now Shahrukh is just super super mad at me.  Could he tell I’ve been cheating on him with Nivin Pauly and Madhavan?  Anyway, he not only posted this without subtitles, he posted it at the exact moment I was leaving for work, meaning I couldn’t watch it until just now.  If he had posted it as little as 15 minutes earlier, I would have been all set!  See, clearly jealous and hurt.  I’m sorry Shahrukh!  I will never stray again!

Monday Malayalam Special: I Was Stuck In Traffic Behind Nivin Pauly!!!!

Last night I went the North American Film Awards, which are essentially the Malayalam IIFAs.  So, the IIFAs without any backup dancers or rehearsals, but with a lot of really detailed eloquent speeches and as much applause for the directors as their was for the stars.  And in a theater which is about the same size as a high school auditorium, and wasn’t even sold out.  But that’s not important, what’s important is I got stuck trying to get out of the parking lot because I was blocked in by NIVIN PAULY!!!!

Full Jab Harry Met Sejal Trailer! No Subtitles, Shahrukh Is Mad At Me Again

Mad at me, but still willing to help, having sensed that my blog views were way way down over the past few days, he provided me with content.  See, even when we are in a fight, he still cares.

Two More Trailers! A Fun Light Rom-Com, and the Opposite!

Datablue pointed out in comments on yesterday’s trailer post that I ignored Arjun Rampal’s Daddy, once again.  And I made a mental note that the next time I had an excuse for a trailer post, I would talk about it.  And then I open up twitter, and poof!  Trailer!  So now I get to combine two very very different films in one post.

New Yash Raj Trailer! Way More Interesting Than the Stupid Star Launch Thing

Thanks to you nice commentators (Niki in particular), I was alerted to this trailer.  And it is really interesting!  Although the new “Kapoor” kid still isn’t blowing me away, the new actress is great.  And then I thought I might as well do a quick look at any other new trailers that our out there, so this also has a song from Baadshaho, Indu Sarkar, and Haseena Parker.

Jagga Jasoos, News From the Front

First, just getting it out of the way, I did NOT see Jagga Jasoos last night.  Instead I went to see an actual good movie, Thondimuthlum Driksakshiyum (podcast going up soon, review up for Monday Malayalam).  But I will be seeing it first possible show today!  And taking my laptop so I can write the review for you guys from the food court at the mall and have it up ASAP.

New Jab Harry Met Sejal Song! Guarantee of a Happy Ending?

Another song!  They are coming fast and furious now, it’s getting closer and closer!  Oh geez, I have to figure out new angles for my Shahrukh Week, don’t I? Veer-Zaara for Shahrukh as a Punjabi?  A third post on how ridiculous it is that Shahrukh didn’t end up with Anushka in Jab Tak?  I can talk about that forever!

New Jab Harry Met Sejal Song and A Gentlemen Trailer!

Shahrukh is not being very considerate to me!  I have this bonkers week (my family is staying about an hour and a half outside of the city, so I am commuting back and forth and they are keeping me up all night with family stuff and then I have to drive drive drive to work the next day), and I get up this morning thinking maybe I will have a little time to, like, brush my hair, but no!  Shahrukh has just posted a 5 minute video that I have to watch instead. Oh, and also Siddharth has a trailer, but it’s not as long and I don’t have to watch as closely.  And neither of them used subtitles, because they hate me because I am disgusting and live in a car and never wash my hair.

New Jab Harry Met Sejal Song Trailer! Also, Twitter is Terrifying

Well, this was interesting!  For the first time ever, I got to experience the twitter madness of waiting for a song trailer to come out.  Because usually the time zones/my interest level doesn’t allow for it.  And I have to say, twitter is a cesspool of stupidity and misinformation!  Who knew?  Anyway, I am glad I usually stay off of it.  Although this was kind of fun to experience once.

New Jab Harry Met Sejal Trailer! PLOT ALERT!!!! (Also, Subtitles! Shahrukh Loves Me Again!)

Yaaaay, another cute trailer!  Which basically gives away the entire plot!  But it’s a good plot, so I’m fine with that.  Really, most of the time I think if you don’t want to see a movie once you know the plot, then it’s a baaaaaaad movie.  We should enjoy films for more than just the plot, there are the characters and the dialogue and everything else.  And this film is definitely going to be about the characters. (oh, and it was posted with subtitles right from the start, so I think this is a clear sign that Shahrukh is reading my blog and loves me)

New Trailers! Jagga Jasoos, Mom, Mubarakan, Partition 1947: Guess Which One I am Most Interested In?

Well, Karan Johar is tweeting about it, so that means it must be news.  Fine!  I will talk about the new Jagga Jasoos trailer!  And then as a reward for my good behavior, I will talk about the trailers I actually like.

Trailers! Southern Trailers! I May Have To Spend $$$$$ and See These in Theaters

I don’t have a super lot to say about these trailers, but I am really hoping that you do!  Because I need to learn more about these movies and decide if it is worth it to go see them in theaters.  Because, you know, Tamil/Telugu movie tickets are big bucks!

Happy Day Before Tubelight!!! Final News and Predictions (WARNING! Dangerous Cuteness Levels!!!!)

Happy day before Tubelight!  I think I have picked my optimal showtime.  Later show, but closer theater, so I can still be home at a reasonable hour.  Same theater where I saw Bahubali opening night, Sultan for the second time, and Fan opening night.  You will notice from that list that this theater only plays the biggest releases.  Which allows me to make some box office predictions!  Oh, and I also needed to do a post because Salman just released a video of Epic Cuteness.

Jab Harry Met Sejal, FIRST SONG!!! Pritam Writes the Sound of Sunshine Again

No subtitles though.  Which, following my theory from yesterday, means that Shahrukh used to love me and was telling me through subtitling his videos.  But now no longer loves me and is breaking up with me through NOT subtitling his videos.  WHY SHAHRUKH????  WHY????  I’ll change for you!  I’ll do whatever you ask!  Just take me back!

Two Non-SRK Trailers, Baadshaho and Mubarakan, Which Just Make Me Think of Other Better Films

Well, that’s not really fair, I don’t know yet if they are better films because these films haven’t come out.  But I can suspect they are better films, because the films they remind me of were really really good, and it showed even in the trailer.

Jab Harry Met Sejal: Shahrukh Saw My Tweets and Added Subtitles! He Does Love Me! Also, New Teaser

Well, apparently the promotion train is moving at an express pace, and I will need to put up one of these posts every day for the next month and a half (last one here).  I guess I am okay with that.  Anyway, New Teaser!  More importantly, Subtitles!!!  Most importantly, Shahrukh loves me and wants me to be happy and is showing it through subtitles on his trailers!  I should take this as a sign of his undying devotion to me and go be a Gaurav outside Mannat, right?
