I'm Feeling Rumply! Let's Have a Post of Non-Rumply Things

Blegh, weird sort of upsy-downsy day. Nothing really wrong-wrong, just rumpled feeling, you know? So I am going to medicate myself with non-rumply things.

Rani Week: Talaash! Rani and Aamir's Last Great Collaberation

Rani is technically just a supporting character, but her role is the secret motive and power and goal of the hero. It’s a fascinating kind of role, she has to be isolated from the rest of the plot, but at the same time not isolated, since her reactions drive Aamir in everything he does for the rest of the plot. It’s her sadness, happiness, strength, sorrow, and so on, that make Aamir angry, confused, dedicated and so on.

Why Does Akshay Look Weird in This Video? And I Have a Better Way to Use the Feather Theme for Aamir!!!

I’m having a silly silly day. It’s overcast again, which makes me depressed and weird, plus I didn’t get any sleep, plus the people of the world just insist on doing silly things today! It’s not my fault, the celebrities are making me do this!

TGIF: For Pride, The Best Queer Images of Indian Film (Obviously, Shahrukh is Best Daddy)

“Queer”= anything non-gender normative. Can be drag, can be transexuals/Hijras, can be a male-male couple, can be a female-female couple, whatever! And to help, I called on my friend who is a pansexual drag queen with a degree in gender studies currently working at a Queer history museum. Just so you can relax, all of these photos were approved by a qualified expert.

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.

I Will Now Fix Aamir Khan’s Career: He Should Remake Tootsie and Make Fun of Himself

This is really Catherine’s idea, at least she is the one who put it together for me that Dustin Hoffman and Aamir Khan have similar reputations as nice guys who take their acting way way WAY too seriously. Dustin Hoffman made Tootsie partly to make fun of that about himself, and Aamir really needs to do the same thing.

Saturday Small Talk: Talk Amongst Yourselves While I Renew My Driver’s License

Happy Saturday! I get to spend the morning waiting in line and doing paperwork. I’m honestly a little excited because I have a whole bag of books and I don’t have to feel guilty for reading, because I’m still doing something productive (waiting in line).
