I already did this for the boys, but can the girls be far behind? And yes, “girls”. Most of these actresses started out before they were 20 and in my book that means you are still a kid.Continue reading

Hindi Film 101/2010s, the Decade Rap Arrived in Hindi Film
This is fun, these random decade round up posts as stuff occurs to me. It’s slow days anyway as we all prepare for New Years Eve (and, of course, the New Years Day tweetalong!), so I might as well put up random stuff. Oh, and forgive me if I mix up “rap” and “hip-hop”, Reflects on Life explained the difference to me months ago and I mostly understand it, but when we get into trying to use them as verbs and adjectives and adverbs, I got confused again.Continue reading
2010s: The Decade the Big Hindi Film Choked the Industry
I’m still sleep-deprived, but I have a Big Idea I want to try to express. Let’s see how I do with that. It won’t be perfect, but we can talk in the comments and make it perfect. And if you want background reading, here, and here, and here, and here are some other posts I did on the history of box office.Continue reading
2010 Week: Dabangg!!!! 2010 Goes Out With a Surprisingly Progressive BANG!
This movie really really holds up. It’s a silly action film and it isn’t ashamed of that, but it also talks about caste, Polio, political use of religion, and other serious things that most films don’t discuss.Continue reading
2010 Week: Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, My Favorite Film of 2010
Such a good movie! And such an interesting movie, a challenging movie, because it deals with the birth of a monster and how society was culpable in his birth, without also forgiving him for what he did or pretending he is less than what he was.Continue reading
TGIF: 2010 Week! Who Looked Best in 2010?
Forgive me if I am a few months off, I’m gonna try to find photos from the correct year based on film promotions and awards dates and stuff, but it could still be wrong (for instance, a MNIK event that was actually at the end of 2009 or something).Continue reading
2010 Week: Udaan, the Best Film of the Year
We had Gautham Menon’s big romantic hit, and Lilo Jose Pellissery’s first film, and My Name is Khan, and all of those were good. But this is the best film of the year, no question.Continue reading
2010 Week: Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, My First Gautham Menon Review!
This was one of my early reviews, and very early in my Tamil journey, so forgive all the many many problems!Continue reading
Wednesday Malayalam: Nayakan, Pellissery’s First Film, It’s All About the Faces
Woo, I only have one Pellissery film left to watch! And also, booo I only have one Pellissery film left to watch. I will be so sad when it is over.Continue reading
2010 Week: Voting Time! Which is the Best Song of 2010?
Okay, I broke songs down into 3 categories, love songs and peppy bouncy songs and party songs. Now, out of all of those, I am going to try to limit it down to a few top options, and you all get to pick the bestest of them all!!!!Continue reading
2010 Week: Best Party Songs of 2010, Ranked
I considered “Best Item Songs”, but that’s really just “Sheila” versus “Munni Badnaam” and there is only one clear answer there (“Sheila”). So these are all the party songs, including Item Songs, that I think are worthy of remembering from 2010.Continue reading
2010 Week: I Hate Luv Storys, Remember When Imraan Khan Was Charming?
He’s still charming I guess, but he’s not like professionally charming. After his 2 year paternity leave (which I continue to find RIDICULOUS) he doesn’t seem to have much interest in returning to work. But back in 2010, I had a crazy crush on him and he was a delight.Continue reading
2010 Discussion Post: My Name is Khan, What Made You Ugly Cry and What Made You Giggle?
Such an odd movie. I’ve yet to show it to someone who didn’t end up a sobbing broken mess by the end. Or to someone who didn’t giggle a bit at a scene here or there. The odd thing is, the “sobbing broken” moments and the “giggle” moments seem slightly different for each person.Continue reading
Best Bouncy Songs of 2010, Ranked
This was a surprisingly rich year for those peppy bouncy catchy songs that get stuck in your head. The ones that aren’t quite party songs, or love songs, but somewhere in between.Continue reading
Discussion Post (Remember, A Christmas Card is on the Line! COMMENT!): Rank SRK Jodis from 2010 to 2019
This should be a gimme, surely! Everyone has to have an opinion on this, right? Say something, let me know you are alive! Not that I am anyone to talk, I know what’s happening, I spent time this week buying and mailing Christmas cards and putting up decorations and so on. But still, can’t we take a little time to talk about meaningless stuff on the internet even during the holiday season?Continue reading
Best Hindi Love Songs of 2010, Ranked
Yes, I am doing it, I am taking a stand and making a judgment call! These are the best love songs of 2010 and everything else is useless TRASH! Not only that, I’m even ranking them. Disagree if you dare. (oh, and there will probably be a party song post later, so don’t freak out because “Sheila Ki Jawani” is missing or something. Just pure love songs)Continue reading
2010 Week! My Name is Khan, a Very Very Dark Film and a Surprisingly Good Film
This is a very good deep review that did not get many readers or comments the first time around. I’m okay if the same is true this time. It’s a dark dark movie. I don’t want DCIB to become a dark place, so if you do comment, try to find a brightness in it somewhere. For instance, “this is a dark movie, and I am so proud that Shahrukh Khan was one of the first people to speak out about Islamophobia in America”. Or just keep it superficial, “this movie is so frustrating because there is so much well done in it, but the plot just makes no sense.”Continue reading
2010 Week! Pyaar Impossible, Uday Chopra Being Surprisingly Cute with Great Songs
Shoot, I was gonna be lazy and repost a review, and then I discovered I never actually reviewed this film. Oh well, I can still be kind of lazy, at least I don’t have to rewatch it, I’ve seen it enough to review it fine without a refresher.Continue reading
