News Round-Up: Abhishek is Spotted, Thugs Tiff, and a Trailer

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.

Happy 22 Days to SRK’s Birthday! 22 Interesting Co-Stars

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.

News Round-Up: Abhishek-Dutta Mystery Continues, Sonakshi is Happy, RK Studios is Not Happy, DON 3!!!!!!

Yay!  For the first time, actually follow-up news stories!  I am getting better about this, checking the news at least once a week so I’m not totally out of the loop.

TGIF: Gentlemanly Looks, Men in Tuxes

Happy A Gentleman day!!!!  Such an odd title for the film.  Not quite sure what it is intended to evoke for the audience.  But I will focus on one small part of it, that very Western style of gentleman, the man in the tuxedo.  And since they are all wearing essentially the same thing this week, we get to have a little “who wore it best” poll in the comments!

Dus: Not a Lot To Say About It, But MAN! This is SUCH a Fun Movie!!!!

I was looking for movie-to-have-on-in-the-background-while-unpacking, and Netflix reminded me that it has Dus now (for full list of all Indian movies on Netflix, check out accessbollywood.net here; for my opinion and recommendations of Indian movies on Netflix look at my post here).  And I am so glad I was reminded!  It really is the perfect movie.  In a very particular category of movie.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Pride and Prejudice! 2000s Version

Happy Sunday!  By popular request, Pride and Prejudice!  It was the top choice for most readers, followed by North and South.  Now, technically, Pride and Prejudice has already been remade, but Bride and Prejudice really doesn’t give the story the remake it deserves.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Rani Week Edition! What Would My Ideal Rani Comeback Film Look Like?

Someone asked on one of my Rani posts if I thought she would ever act again opposite one of her 90s costars in a rom-com.  And I think she might, but only if it was a really really good script.  And to help the scriptwriters along, here are some suggestions! (of course, she could always just do my K3G sequel idea with Abhishek, or my Taming of the Shrew idea with Aamir)

Sunday Silly Speculative Post: What Happened to Naina in K3G?

Time for my silly post!  This week, I was looking at my DVD shelf trying to think of what to talk about, and my eye fell on K3G.  And I suddenly remembered the one very unfinished plot point in that movie.  Whatever happened to Rani’s character?

TGIF: Happy Birthday Again, Abhi Baby!

Abhishek isn’t exactly like Hrithik or Salman in terms of TGIF-iness.  But I know there is a certain segment of the population which appreciates him.  And that part of that segment is in the comments section here.  So I thought I might as well give him his very own post for his birthday week.

Hindi Film 101: Kapoor Family Part III, The Randhir Branch, Karisma and Kareena and Babita

Okay, I was thinking this would be a nice easy starting point for my new Hindi Film 101 series, and it is taking FOREVER.  But I’m glad I’m doing it this way, because each of these branches and generations really needs their own focus area.  And (hopefully) it will make it easier for you to refer back to them (part 1 with Prithviraj, Shammi, and Shashi here, part 2 with Raj and Nargis here)

Jhoom Barabar Jhoom: A Movie Both More and Less Realistic Than Usual

This is another one of those movies I like and no one else does.  No one even asked me to put it on my to-do list, but I am doing it anyway, because I was traveling last week and need to write about something I know really well, even without re-watching it.

I Saw Housefull 3! Better Late Than Never! (Review with Spoilers, I guess? Although it isn’t really the kind of a movie you watch for plot)

I am actually traveling this week, but I took a chance and checked the showtimes, and Housefull 3 was playing at a mall 200 feet from my hotel!  It was fate!  I had to see it!
