Happy Eclipse! Which I can’t see at all because it is super overcast here! And which is kind of okay with me, I wasn’t very excited about it in the first place. I don’t like it when the sun goes away! And if you feel the same, here are some songs to remind you of the sun.
Well, trailer time is upon us again. We had that little burst during Ramadan, then everything kind of slowed down a bit as JHMS and Toilet dominated the news cycles. But now they are successfully running in theaters, so we can all focus on what’s coming up after them. Two big things out today, full Secret Superstar song and Judwaa 2‘s first trailer. Oh, and Bhoomi came out a few weeks back, I just never got around to writing about it.
Happy Birthday Saif! Somehow old and young simultaneously. 47 years old, with a new baby, and a daughter who is old enough to be looking at a film launch.
So cool! It’s like, August 13th is “Day of great dancers with big eyes and sweet smiles”. I did 14 reasons I love Sridevi, I am sure I can come up with 14 for Vyjantimala! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
It’s Sridevi’s birthday! I am so excited about celebrating! Because it means we all get to watch a bunch of really great song sequences as I list of my reasons that I love her. I did 13 reasons last year, but now she is one year older, so I will do 14! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Oh Suniel Shetty! Definitely a “you don’t get older, you just get better” kind of person. Every year you are getting better and better. And here are a dozen reasons why.
Have I mentioned that technology hates me? Or at least, doesn’t like me much? Following your notes on my last post, I tried a fast-talking excited video. And then after 3 days of trying, have totally failed to figure out how to add graphics (the other big suggestion). So put a pin in the graphics requests (unless you have a suggestion for a free program I can download to do them), and just focus on the talking head part of it.
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.
Happy Raksha Bandhan! A holiday I don’t get to celebrate at all, because there are no brothers in my family. Yes, even if I count cousins. All girls, all the time, both mother and father’s side of the family. But, at least I can watch movies and pretend this is what it would be like if I had a brother or a cousin-brother. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
(as always, if you have a favorite video for the holiday, let me know in the comments!)
Is it still Friendship Day in India? Am I getting in just under the wire or did I miss it? Oh well, either way I want to do a quick post on it with a few of my favorite songs about friendship. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
It’s Kajol’s birthday! YAAAAAAAAAAY!!!! I LOVE her! Love love love! So I am going to do a full 43 reasons I love her, one for every year she’s been alive. Oh boy! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Yesterday I put out a kind of no news-news discussion post about why “Phurr” was having a limited pay only release, and why this wasn’t actually “news” it was just the first officially promoted version of something that had been happening in a low key way for a while. And now that is even more true because, poof! Youtube video!
Okay, Aamir, you’ve won me over. After seeing that teaser over and over and over and over again, the trailer added enough new to it that I am interested.
Yaaaaaaaay, Sanjay! Your second birthday out of jail with no court case hanging over you! That must feel so good! Here are 25 reasons I love you, one for every year between your debut in Rocky and your re-debut in Lago Raho Munna Bhai. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Forgive me, I am still really really weak on Malayalam. So this won’t be as extensive as it could be. But moviemavengal just reminded me it is his birthday and I feel like I have to do SOMETHING.
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!
Why is there no news today? Why isn’t SRK releasing the newest Jab Harry Met Sejal song trailer? Why can’t I find anything for my quick afternoon post? All of these reasons and more are making me grumpy and depressed, so I am going to cheer myself up by looking at all the songs that make me smile. And also distract myself by playing my own personal version of Antakshari, connecting song by song through actor instead of word (don’t speak Hindi) or sound (can’t appreciate music). Feel free to suggest alternative happy songs that I could have gone with!
Crazy at work today, so no time to write anything substantive. But why not a fanvid post? Because it’s been a while.
Today he is 44, so I get to put up all my favorite songs and reasons I love him! 25 in all, for the age he was when he wrote his first hit song. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Well, that was a movie that happened! So glad I saw it with someone else, by the time we were 5 minutes in, my friend Dina and I were already getting the giggles just by exchanging glances. But it was kind of neat how it made me think back and really appreciate other better versions. (no spoiler review here) (oh, and I just remembered, I did a post already on the history of dance on film in general, you should read that here)
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.
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.
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.
