This is Voter Registration week in America, so the perfect week to talk about Yuva! (yes yes, I know Aaytha Ezhuthu is better, I can’t find it, and I’ve already seen Yuva)
Such a good movie! I always forget, and then I watch it again and it is even better than I remembered. Abhishek is perfect, Amitabh is perfect, Katrina is dubbed, it’s just what you want!
Oh boy, spoilers time! For me at least, there is nothing more stressful than a love triangle. I am always worried that the wrong couple will end up together. If you want that stress removed, you can read this and know how it ends. But on the other hand, a lot of the entertainment of the film is not being sure how it will end and trying to guess. So if you want that entertainment, read the No Spoilers review instead.
I am so glad I saw this movie! It meant driving for over an hour there and back and spending hideous amounts of money on the tickets (I do not understand the release strategy at all. Why only one theater, and only the most expensive theater?), but it was exciting and different and most of all, just plain GOOD.
Oh there is FUN STUFF today!!!!!!! Talk about contract disputes and filming hierarchies, my favorite! Oh, and also terrible gossip that lets us feel like better people than celebrities and gives that little “zing” of excitement from conspiracy theories.
This is usually the day I do my box office report, but I went over to BH to get the numbers and ran into a bunch of news stories I thought I should talk about first. So box office is coming, eventually, but first news for us!
Welcome back! The last post focused on an overview of celebrity media from the big picture perspective, how the fans and media found each other and grew. Now, let’s shift to looking at what this is like for the Stars and bringing it through to today where media and Stars have come together and turned into one entity
This is from last year, but they are still good ideas! So along with the sequels for Rani from earlier today, here are some brand new movie ideas.
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.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Rani and Abhishek had the better chemistry together than either of them had with any other co-star. So, in honor of Rani’s birthday, let us take a look at that chemistry in fanvid form!
It hurts my little alliteration loving heart, but I can’t do Tuesday Telugu this week. Because a big snow storm ruined my plan to drive out to the movie theater yesterday. So instead I am swapping in Friday Classics and, if the weather clears, I will do Telugu on Friday. Or something. Anyway, it still works because we get to have an Abhishek movie right by Abhi’s birthday!
So many news items about upcoming movies! Mostly how they are being released early, or released late, or starting filming. Just a lot of date talk, really. Which isn’t very interesting on the surface, but is super super interesting when you dig in and think about what those dates mean. And this is just part one, I am breaking it into two parts so we can more easily keep comments focused. Part two here
A bit odd calling a 41 year old “baby”, but I am a sucker for alliteration, so I am sticking with it. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Happy day before the Women’s March to the Polls! Which is a kick off and a reminder that it is all our responsibilities not just to vote, but also to run for office if possible. So, the perfect week to talk about Yuva! (yes yes, I know Aaytha Ezhuthu is better, I can’t find it, and I’ve already seen Yuva)
Well this is an interesting batch of news in terms of changing industrial forces! Managers, story rights, all kinds of things that didn’t used to exist and may not necessarily result in a different or superior end product.
Happy Dharmendra’s birthday (again). To celebrate we are going to have a bit of a rigged contest, Dharam against all comers. But obviously, Dharam will win. Partly because it is his birthday and I want to be nice, and partly because he just is the best.
Okay, I am going to try to catch up on every interesting news story over the past few days in one big post! Some of these will be pretty short updates. Also, be warned, I haven’t had breakfast and the Padmavati news is irritating me, so I am in a pretty bad mood about all of these stories with no time to be diplomatic about how I address them.
Happy Veteran’s Day! I bring you greetings from my sister’s living room while we watch Nagarjuna on the TV (we needed something nice to wake up to). Very exciting to wake up to, SO MUCH NEWS!!!! Including the continuing saga of Abhishek.
Happy first TGIF post after Shahrukh month! And it will be (almost) Shahrukh free! Because he isn’t always “cuddly”. In the “teddy bear” kind of way.
I just did a news post on Saturday, and yet there are already new stories out there! How does this keep happening? It’s like the news never stops or something.
Not as much news as their could be today, but I will still pick out the stories I find most interesting to talk about and share them with you all. Mostly they are on the “isn’t it interesting how this news item is being spun?” level, rather than talking about the news item itself.
Lots of little announcements today! A few that I have many thoughts about, and a few I don’t care about that much but are still worth repeating.
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.
