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!
Such an interesting movie! A light tone and a dark story. In keeping with it’s predecessor, The Apartment. Oh, and don’t worry too much about SPOILERS on this one if you haven’t seen it before, everything is more or less predictable.
I’m not talking about, like, hair clippings. I have never had any luck finding stuff like that. But there is plenty of other mass produced weirdness out there.
Well, I got no sleep, and it is overcast today, and I am very much looking forward to finishing work, going home, leaving again, going to a movie, and then falling into bed for about 20 hours. In the meantime, to keep me going, I am going to post the silliest SRK Photoshoot Photos I can find. And please feel free to post more in the comments if you can find them. (down a line, past in the url of the photo, down another line)
Thank you Procrastinatrix for the suggestion! And hopefully we can get a nice discussion going, like we did on Thursday for the one Shahrukh movie people really hated.
Why over think it, you know? I’m not coming up with a theme or anything like that, I’m just saying out of all the candid photos I can find, these are the ones I like best. Feel free to disagree and post your own suggestions in the comments. Or to skip this post entirely if you can’t stand his face.
I need your opinions! I need to make a blog scheduling decision soon and I don’t know what the preference of the readers is. So, get ready to answer a poll! I thought this would be a good day for it since it is also Voter Registration Day in America (REGISTER TO VOTE or CHECK YOUR VOTING STATUS).
Reflects on Life was talking about this movie in the Wednesday Watching post and suggested it for a Friday Classic. Which made me realize I hadn’t actually written about it yet. 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.
Well, it’s been a long drought, but now with Zero on the horizon, and Suhana to protect, Shahrukh is finally coming out of his time of silence and has given us one little nice interview to talk over.
Salman didn’t give us the big family Eid photo, which is fine, it’s not the big big Eid. Although this sounds like a nice one, remembering the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son by sharing food with the needy of your community, your friends, and your family. And it is also a moment for one of my favorite traditions from the Indian film industry, the holiday greetings and messages to the fans from the stars.
Well….I didn’t end up stalled in a cornfield? Or the middle of the highway? Things could be worse! Right?
Kind of surprised I haven’t done this already. Oh well, we are here now! I don’t promise a comprehensive overview, but I am going to pick out the most strikingly different covers I can find.
It’s Monday, I feel the need for a distraction from work. And anonymous and I have just been discussing an important issue that I feel deserves the full attention of us all: Is Jimmy Shergill or Jugal Hansraj better in Mohabbatein? And, on the other end, is Uday Chopra or Amitabh worse? This made me realize that we really need to hash this out for multiple films.
You have all been delightfully patient with my incredibly dull history of media series that I’ve been obsessed with for the past few days, but now it is all over and as a reward, I will do an intensive review of two movies that I suspect most of you have seen, and have opinions on.
For her birthday (/to take advantage of Kat being trending news today), Shahrukh posted her first look from Zero and a little introductory statement on his twitter. So, let’s obsess over it! The way we do.
This video went up on Friday, but I have had a busy weekend, so I didn’t get a chance to watch it closely until now. Lot’s of interesting things to discuss!
Happy Monday! I am still grumpy about being gypped out of a good show on Saturday night (Hetal Patel, I curse your name!!!!), but I got to have coffee this morning, so that’s nice.
Apparently, this is going to be a story again. So I will try to address it again. The first time I tried, I got so much anger in the comments (by Priyanka defenders who misread it as the strawman version below) that I had to pull down the post, but maybe it will be better now. Mostly because I will try to be more clear in my writing.
I just randomly felt like writing about this movie. I’ve been avoiding it, because this is one that is really close to my heart and I know it isn’t close to the heart of most people, which is going to be heard for me to take when you comment. But then on the other hand, I should write about it for that very reason, so you can understand what I am thinking, and I can understand what you are thinking. And anyway, it’s Autism Pride Day today, and it was Eid a couple of days ago, so it seems like the perfect time. Plus, I am planning to cover Vishwaroop tomorrow and the two kind of go together.
Mamootty picks the BEST story ideas for his age. After Bhaskar the Rascal, here is another one, Pullikkaran Staraa, that is age appropriate and interesting and could so easily be translated into a Hindi film. Especially since the Malayalam original was only moderately successful and of only moderate quality.
I finally finished my Sanjay Dutt series, it was exhausting, I don’t have the strength to think about anything intelligent after that. So instead I am going to think about something totally unintelligent, and you all can join me.
May day, in addition to being the international day of labor, is also the international day of “hanging flowers and candy on your neighbor’s doors”. And the Maypole dance and various other obviously pagan spring rituals. But whatever, it works! Spring keeps coming! And to that end, let’s enjoy some pretty spring flower songs.
Happy Monday! I have a DOG!!!! A real dog, that weighs more than 20 pounds and grunts in her sleep and wags her whole body when she gets excited. So much better than the temporary dog that didn’t do any of that. So yeah, the week is off to a good start for me! And tonight I have the internet people over for a THIRD TIME and try to convince them that I am not hallucinating massive slow downs.
Happy 2 days after Jaya’s birthday! I want to do something in her honor, but it’s been a bit of A Week, so I have to fall back on one of her more recent films that I have seen enough times to be able to write about it with no re-watching needed. And I also honestly think this is a fascinating character and performance to consider from Jaya.
