Happy 14 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday! 14 Best Performances

Yesterday I did “top characters“.  This is a post that pairs with it, top performances.  But is different, characters were wonderful people imagined by the script writer who Shahrukh was lucky to play.  These are characters that Shahrukh elevated through his performance. (part of this post is the same as last year, but most of it is new)

Happy 15 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday!!!! 15 Best Characters He Has Played

Just to be clear, this is not best performances.  “Performances” would mean he brought something extra to the role.  Which of course he did, but here I want to focus on characters, characters as written in the script, who would have been interesting no matter who played them.

Silly Sunday: 18 Movies Shahrukh Should Make Next (Part 1)

Next week I get down to 11, right?  So I can go back in depth instead of these shorter ones?  That will be a relief.  This week though, another series of really short kind of idea sketches, since I have to do a full 18.

Happy Amitabh’s birthday again!  And, because it is his birthday, I thought I would do a Shahrukh birthday post that could kind of work for Amitji too.  So, co-stars!!!!  Not in order in any way, just 22 that are interesting to think about.

Happy 28 Days to SRK’s Birthday! 28 Romances, Part 3

I am finding this fascinating, looking at the slow progression of the Shahrukh Khan romance over the years.  Not every romance, but almost all, the ones I find interesting to talk about. (part 1 here, part 2 here)

I just thought this would be an interesting experiment, to take a brief look at 28 different films in terms of the romance plots.  and then try to come to some conclusions.  I did the first 7 already, now let’s look at another 7.

28 Shahrukh Romances, Part 1: Trickster SRK

This came up because of a comment in our JHMS discussion yesterday.  About how it felt like in some ways the happy ending for “Harry” resolved a lot of unhappy endings for similarly noble Shahrukh lover characters.  Which got me thinking about what might be the same and different in how SRK romances play out.  So, let’s look at an assortment of romances.  7 at a go, because I want to discuss them in depth and then discuss them cumulatively.

Happy 30 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday! Top 30 Best Films

This is considerably longer than it was last year, but we are going to have a string of light posts over the next few days, so I thought I should try to give you something a little more substantive today.  And you can all argue with me in the comments about what I left out and what is in the wrong order and so on and so on.

Happy Shahrukh Birthday Month, Day 1 (of 31)! 31 Gifs for Us All

I sense a disturbance in the world of my blog.  On one side, I have many many voices crying out in joy at the thought of 31 full days of SRK posts.  And then on the other side, I have not quite as many voices crying out in despair.  So, here’s the deal.  I will continue my Monday and Tuesday reviews.  And my Friday Classics.  And I’ll throw in news posts and so on.  It won’t be all SRK all the time.  But all TGIF and Sunday fanfic content will be replaced by SRK focused items.  I mean, most of the people who read those are SRKians anyway, right?  And every day there will be a special SRK birthday post counting down 31 to 1.  Some of them very very silly (as this one will be), and some of them serious (for instance, best performances).  If you don’t absolutely hate SRK, at least read the headline topic for the post before deciding not to read it, there will be good content in here.

What Shahrukh Khan Means to the Overseas Audience

Tomorrow is the start of Shahrukh’s birthday month, which means you will have to suffer through 30 Days o’ SRK on this website.  But before we get into that, I want to try to explain why he means so much to some of us, why a good half of my blog audience is reacting to the news of 30 Days o’ SRK with silent cheers.  At least, what I think it is.

Another Deleted Scene!!!! Shahrukh Must Be Very Concerned About my View Counts

Remember how all the teaser trailer releases were coded love messages from SRK to me?  Well, I think these deleted scenes might be as well!  He knew my view count was going down with no big releases for the past few weeks and, to help me out, he is posting these videos.  Oh, and also to help me, a nice commentator has given us a TRANSLATION!!!! (full coverage of Jab Harry Met Sejal here)
