I know I already did a silly one yesterday, but I’ve got another looooooooong series of fanfics coming tomorrow, and I am worn out! So another easy silly one today. Outfits! Although I am going to try to actually rank them, so that will give you something fun to argue about in the comments.
We’ve already talked a little about both these movies, but it felt like they deserved their own post so everyone can see and discuss them. And thus, this post!
A side effect of the whole Hrithik-Kangana madness is that it made me think about Kaho Na Pyar Hai. Because that is tied with Koi Mil Gaya, in my mind, for Peak-Hrithik. Agneepath is probably his best acting job, or maybe Jodha-Akbar, but this film most perfectly encapsulates his overall appeal.
That sounds a bit gruesome, I don’t mean we should chop him up into 20 pieces. I just mean 20 images of 20 different body parts. Which is a totally sane thing to collect and consider. And not at all like a shopping list of Shahrukh parts I need in order to assemble my Frankensteined together Shahrukh doll.
Happy Friday the 13th! And happy “yet another updated and reposted post”. But a really good one! All the best songs from horror movies.
(This is an updated and re-written and edited reposted post from last year, because I am lazy and the weather is awful again) It’s been overcast and raining here for over 24 hours now, and I just want to see the sun! And also, our discussions have been somewhat heated and excited for the past few days, so I thought it would be good to put up a post that makes you feel light and happy.
I did a serious one yesterday, so now I get to do a silly one! 21 hairstyles. Which was surprisingly hard, because he really doesn’t like to change it up much.
Well, I was able to watch the whole interview! After I read a bunch of excerpts already and so on. I encourage you to watch it for yourself, and then come back and give your own opinion.
Another depressing week at the box office! Which people are trying to spin as good thanks to Judwaa breaking Badrinath Ki Dulhania‘s record. But that was on many fewer screens with a lot less pressure, whereas right now Judwaa is the only game in town and it’s just not doing that great if you think of it that way.

This is related to the Padmavati post and the discussion following. There are some ideas that are coming up, some more elaborate discussion topics, which might be confusing for my non-desi readers in particular. I don’t want to bore my desi readers with this background; however, I feel an obligation to provide that context as desired to others. Please if you are confused, distressed, conflicted over what you are reading, or merely concerned and wonder how it is affecting the blog/my intent, feel free to reach out and I will provide additional information in a more private forum.
Think of it as a professor’s office hours, I have given the public lecture to the whole class, and there has been a public class discussion, but if you feel like there is a question you would like to discuss with me in depth, or ask me in private, I am available outside of class hours as well. The kind of discussion we are getting in to is so important that I feel a moral obligation to discuss it until all your questions are resolved, and I know some of you may feel a moral obligation to search further until you reach full understanding.
Happy Amitabh’s birthday again! And, because it is his birthday, I thought I would do a Shahrukh birthday post that could kind of work for Amitji too. So, co-stars!!!! Not in order in any way, just 22 that are interesting to think about.
Happy Wednesday! This is the place for us all to discuss and share and converse about what we are doing this week. It doesn’t HAVE to be SRK related, but it also doesn’t NOT have to be SRK related.
It’s Amitabh’s Birthday!!!!! The second most glorious day of the filmic year (after November 2nd, I do have my priorities). And, of course, for Amitabh, I will be doing a full 75 reasons to love him. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
This is a mix, movie quotes and real life, because I just couldn’t pick between the two! And feel free to add any I have missed in the comments.
Happy Monday! And the Padmavati trailer is out. Was released in the middle of the night. Quite a thing to wake up to! And be warned, this started as simple discussion of the trailer and ended up going into a whole different and very intense kind of direction. Which probably most of you will disagree with, I am happy to debate you in the comments so long as you remain respectful of those who disagree with you.
Happy 24 days to SRK Day!!!!! Let’s look at 24 of his non-film works, his TV ads. Such fun for those of us not in India who never get to see them! Apologies to those in India who are probably tired of them.
Happy Monday! And Happy Start of Week 2 of 31 Days o’ SRK!!!! You don’t HAVE to ask me an SRK question today, but you also don’t have to NOT ask me an SRK question today.
I did 13 this morning, now another 12 for this afternoon. This is such a fun way to spend a Sunday! (part 1 here)
I was tempted to do one long post for one of these, but that would break the list pattern. Plus, be harder to write. So some will be longer, some will be shorter, but there will be a full 25. And that will give you all a lot to talk about in the comments.
How am I not able to think of more Karva Chauth songs than this?!?!? It really feels like there must be more! If you remember what I am forgetting, put it in the comments. Oh, and just like Dussehra, temporary header image change! Enjoy! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Well, this is sad! One of the great directors has passed away, depriving us of more great films. Although he did give us two all time classics, so I guess I shouldn’t be greedy.
