Shahrukh Summer: Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Post, What is Up With Those Costumes?

This is so strange, I swear that when I was in college every single girl I knew was obsessed with KKHH, like the way we are with JHMS now. What has happened in the years since that it doesn’t inspire discussion? Anyway, I am still obsessed with it and can’t stop writing. Which is part of the reason I avoided writing about it because I knew I would get really detailed past the point of interest for anyone else.

Shahrukh Summer Discussion Post: How Would We Fix His Hair?

There are no bad ideas here! I am open to “stop dying it” and also “grow it shoulder length like in Asoka”. But I think we can all agree that there are better options than “slightly too long bangs and tan highlights” that he is going for now.

First, most importantly, ANGIE! And all other Maddy Fans! Maddy is in it for about 15 minutes cumulatively and all he does is stand there looking solid and sensitive in glasses with shaggy hair. Barely has a character. But looks quite good. Everyone else: this movie was a disappointment, but probably still more enjoyable if you go in fresh than if you go in SPOILED. This review is for those who absolutely cannot see it in theaters, or who have already seen it and want to discuss.

Friday Classics: Raju Ban Gaye Gentleman, Shree 420 Meets the 90s

Yaaaay, another Shahrukh review!  See how I am sneaking them in under the guise of “Friday Classics” even now that Shahrukh Month is over?  Oh, and plus Juhi in a really nice role, for her birthday.  Although Aaina is a better Juhi movie, remember to watch it for this Sunday if at all possible!  It’s also a wonderful Amrita Singh movie, if this film makes you want more of her.

Diwali Repost! Swades, Shahrukh Argues that Ram is Within Us All and We Should Save Ourselves

I think it’s one of those Big movies that I was avoiding, ones that are really good, and I also really like and I want to be careful to explain why I like them in a way that makes you like them too, not just appreciate their quality.

Shahrukh Birthday Month: JHMS, Happy New Year, Raees, Om Shanti Om, JTHJ Rewritten So He Can Play His Own Age

There are a large number of films where he actually is playing his own age, or close to it.  But for those few where he is clearly far far distant from the character age, here are my suggestions for how to fix it.  It’s not hard, I don’t know why they didn’t just right it this way to begin with!
