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.Continue reading

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.Continue reading

Shahrukh Movies Outside of the Standard List
I don’t even care, I’m just doing posts that are fun for me! We all know Shahrukh’s top TOP movies, but what are the lessor known films that are still surprisingly decent?Continue reading
Zero Review (SPOILERS): TOO MUCH PLOT!!!!
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.Continue reading
An Important Question For Our Time: What is the Sexiest Scene in Indian Film?
I don’t think anyone has formed a definitive answer to this before? Or, perhaps, even been brave enough to pose the question!!! But I feel like if anyone is qualified to answer such a vital open research topic, it is the DCIB community.

A Shahrukh (or Star of Your Choice) Game!
This is a variation on the game I put up on the morning post. But now it is specific to one actor and the characters they play.
Dear Zindagi Review RePost: This is a Movie Made For Women, Start To Finish
Another Shahrukh repost! Dear Zindagi, a reminder of what happens when he takes a step back and lets his heroine take the lead. Okay, he always does that, but even more than usual.
Raees Reviews Combined and Reposted, I Think It Went Wrong At the Election Sequence
I wrote 3 reviews of Raees in rapid succession, before doing a detailed scene by scene. For us all to have a chance to remember it and talk about it before Zero, I am going to combine all 3 reviews in one handy place! Even with the combining, BE WARNED!!! This is a LONG review. Continue reading
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.
New Shahrukh Interview! Substantive and Casual and Unpracticed!!! Yaaaay!
This isn’t total fangirly, right? No, I don’t think it is, Shahrukh is an important industry figure and him saying things about the industry is news and worthy of discussion.
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.

Zero Trailer! Now with SUBTITLES!!!! Start Your Speculation Engines!!!!
Second post, updated with subtitles and some fan theories from the comments on the first post! And also, just to make sure it didn’t get lost in the flurry of other Shahrukh Day postings.
Shahrukh Birthday RePost! How I Overthink Everything and How Shahrukh Stops Me From Doing That
I just had my usual agonizing ten minutes of deep moral complexity when deciding what milk to buy, and I thought I would walk you all through it so you know that I’m not just insane about overthinking movies, it’s my whole life.
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!
Shahrukh Birthday RePost! Best FanVids!
ZiziStreet/ZiziK is sadly no more, which has greatly lowered the number of high quality Shahrukh fanvids in the world. But there are still some good ones! And it’s a nice fun thing to write about and think about for his birthday month.

Shahrukh Birthday RePost, My Shahrukh Altar
I think I’ve referred to this in the past, but I’m not sure I’ve ever put up an actual picture. I’m not kidding when I say I have an actual alter to Shahrukh in my apartment.

Shahrukh Birthday RePost! Strangest Shahrukh Items for Sale on The Internet
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.
TGIF Birthday Repost! Shahrukh’s Most Wonderfully Feminine Aspects!
Gender is a construct, not a reality. Therefore, Shahrukh Khan, a man, can also have feminine aspects. And those aspects can be a blessing and a wonderful thing to be celebrated.
