Tomorrow is International Chocolate Day (today is fried chicken day in America-July is an unhealthy month). So I thought I would look at Chocolate Heroes, a phrase specific to Hindi film that makes almost no logical sense and yet you immediately understand what it means. Well, almost immediately.
This comes right up to the line of acceptable objectification. But I think we are still okay, because it’s not like we are saying anything about their basic bodies, or comparing them with non-muscley guys (Abhishek, you are the best), or even muscle to muscle. Merely in terms of the clothes they have chosen to wear, and the moments they have allowed to be photographed, who is the best?
My boss is gone today which means I can look at photos on my computer without fear of being observed and judged. Well, my co-workers might judge me, but whatever, I don’t care what they think. And I was just talking with Meenakshy about who looks good in a Dhoti, so why not do a Dhoti post? Similar too but different from my previous Lungi post. (for the purposes of this post, “Dhoti” means any single cloth that is used as a wrap skirt by an Indian man)
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.
One of this is important and one of them isn’t, but I’m not sure which. Kitten or trailer?
Happy Madhuri week! Looking for something from your suggestions that I have already seen and could write about quickly, I landed on Dil. Because it is soooooooo terrible that I don’t need to really think that deeply about it, and it is also soooooooo fun that I can sincerely recommend it.
You know Dina? Who I used to do the podcasts with and who I always see movies with on Friday nights? Her birthday is this week, and I won’t be able to give her her present beforehand, so instead she will have to make do with this theme post.
I have really done an awful lot of Rani themed fanfic! But hey, why not repost all of it? You can just not read it if you aren’t interested.
I’m excited! Lots of fun options here! Not just epilogues and alternative endings, but straight up separate movie plots following up on the same characters.
Happy Friday! The end of Aamir/Alia abbreviated week! And, of course, they get to have this weeks TGIF post. But they have to share it between them.
Here’s a random review! Finally getting around to Lagaan. Which is definitely NOT Aamir’s most important film, that would be Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak or 3 Idiots or something like that. But it is the movie I feel like writing about right now, so why not?
I considered songs about pie, but there really aren’t that many. So instead, to represent the concept of “Pi”, songs that involve circles.
HAPPY AAMIR DAY!!!!! It’s not a holiday in my religion (SRKian), but I feel I can still join in the celebrations even if I don’t fully Believe.
The final 13! Very Exciting!!!!
I already gave Aamir a random day for all his reviews to be reposted a few weeks back, so for his birthday he will just have to be satisfied with the usual 53 reasons I love him.
Happy Monday! Don’t worry, I know it is Aamir Week, he will get his celebration and question on Wednesday. But first, a general question and general discussion post!
This was fast! Although, it seems like they are often fast, the funeral happening shortly after the death. And it all happened while I was asleep, of course. So here I am writing about her death, and the funeral is already over. And the twitter messages too.
My boss’ wife is sick today, so he had to bring his two year old into the office. She is the sweetest little thing and they are soooooooooooooooo cute together. And thus the inspiration for this post!
And we reach the end! Aamir’s most recent film, and also his one at the end of the alphabet. So one last review, and then he gets his nice fresh index.
A couple of people responded to me on twitter arguing that Parampara was not, in fact, Aamir’s worst film and giving other options. And they were all valid! The man has been in A LOT of bad movies! And also, a lot of good movies. Anyway, what do you think? Best and worst?
This is really not a good movie. Not in a “so bad it’s funny” way, just not a good movie. Very dull, very confusing, not great. But by golly Aamir did his best with his little role!
But you didn’t think this post would show up on Aamir Day! But it is, he has more dialogue than anyone else, so why not?
