Saturday Small Talk: What Should We Talk About as I Nurse My Swollen Eye?

Happy Saturday! We get to go to doggie training class, and I will do laundry, and other fun stuff. And also, wait to see if my eye unswells itself.

De De Pyaar De Review (No Spoilers): It’s All About the Woman

Luv Ranjan is such a FASCINATING artist!!!! I can’t think of anyone else who brings together such different sensibilities within one artist. And, in this case, within one movie! He didn’t direct, but he produced and wrote the script, and it is pretty clearly more of a Luv Ranjan movie than anything else. Really interesting, a film that is both a fun light sexy situational comedy, and also a drama about being a woman and being a man and being a family.

Shahrukh Letterman Taping Report, FULL FINAL VERSION! READ FOR LATEST UPDATE!!! (No Spoilers)

Featured

Because Shahrukh’s newest longform interview was in America, and tickets were open to the public, there were a few DCIBers who were actually able to attend! I asked them for their stories of what it was like, without any details of the actual interview (because I want to be surprised and I am selfish that way). Oh, and no SPOILERS in the comments please either, even rumors. I’ll delete them if I see them, so other people like me who want to go in fresh can stay uncontaminated.

Hindi Film/Film 101: Cannes Film Festival, What Is It and Why Should We Care?

I really want to do a “red carpet looks” post, but I’m not the best place for it. Especially in a “hot off the presses” kind of way. I don’t have a subscription to a photo service, so I am just stealing images from other sites in a very haphazard way, which means it’s best if I wait until things have settled down a bit before I try it. But I can at least give a starting point for what Cannes is, behind the glitz and glamour. Be warned, this is a very cynical and practical post, so it may not be much fun.

Bharat Trailer and the Three Khans Playdates

Another Bharat song! Is this the last one? I think it’s the last one. Or maybe not? We’ve still got 3 weeks left, what else are they going to do if there are no more songs? Oh, and there is a super super cute news story going around about the Khans that just makes me happy and I want it to be true.

Friday Classics: Ghulam, No One is Past Hope of Redemption

I really love this movie. It was one of the early films I saw, one of the first movies I watched where I was told “this is an actual good movie”. And it is! It is an actual good movie! Not just a fun romance with something deep down below, but deep straight through.

Grumpy Post About My Least Favorite Part of Indian Film-SUBTITLES!!!!

I don’t usually let myself complain, but it’s pouring rain, my summer schedule is looking like the things I want to do won’t be possible because of other stuff that is happening that I am less excited about, and I have a big irritating expense that appeared suddenly out of nowhere. Also I just got an email asking me to sub in for Sunday school this week and I REALLY REALLY don’t want to. So I am going to complain about a thing that I think we all have strong feelings about-SUBTITLES!

Yet Another Discussion Post: What Question Would You Ask Shahrukh if You Were At the Letterman Taping? And What Question Do You Hope Letterman Asks Him?

This is a suggestion from Procrastinatrix, and I think it is a fun one! Especially if we get really really specific about the situation, not just a general “what would you ask Shahrukh?” topic.

Wednesday Watching Post: What Are We Reading and Thinking and Watching and Listening To on Madhuri’s Birthday?

Happy Wednesday/Madhuri Day!!!! I am almost through my weird busy week. Worked remotely on Monday, worked on no sleep after a delayed late flight yesterday, work normal today, then go see a co-worker in a show tomorrow night (Othello, it’s like Omkara but without the songs. So, completely depressing), and then Friday is De De Pyaar De (unless Dina talks me into seeing SOTY2 again so she can watch it).

News Round-Up: Harshwardhan Rane is In a Movie That Won’t Happen, Kangana Tries to Start Feuds That Won’t Happen, Tiger 3 WILL Happen, and Shahrukh’s PR is Happening

Nothing super duper interesting here, just stories that are continuations of other stories, or else rumors of things that won’t happen. But it’s Monday, we need things to talk about!

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me as I Work from My Sister’s House?

First time I have tried this, the cheap plane tickets meant my flight isn’t until this evening, so it just kind of makes sense to work from her house. But I don’t know, working from somewhere else? Trying to focus on work stuff like family is right there? It all seems difficult.
