Rani Week! Aiyyaa, My Favorite Rani Performance!

I’ve been thinking about it as we go through Rani Week, and I think this is my favorite performance from her. It’s not showy, and it’s not her usual Type A heroine, it’s something different but charming. And I don’t think any other actress could make it work.

Ten Indian Films to Start Feminist Discussions!

This is NOT “Ten Feminist Films”, because that’s a wee bit subjective.  And it’s also NOT “Top Ten”, because that’s a way bit subjective.  Instead, these are just ten films that bring up interesting discussions around gender.  If you ever want to have a real downer of a movie night, you can show these and then make people discuss.  Feel free to add on your own options both for films and discussion questions in the comments!!

Aiyyaa: Like Ohm Shanti Oshaana, but Weird!!!

Now, if you remember, I looooooooved Ohm Shanti Oshaana.  Whole-hearted no reservations loved it.  And the big main thing I loved is still there in Aiyyaa, that it is a love story from the female side instead of the male, the woman gets to fall in love at first sight and be the stalker and make all the big gestures and stuff.  But, all the little things in Aiyyaa are just WEIRD!  Weird weird weird!  I can see why it wasn’t a hit.
