Final Bahubali Post! What Happened After the Ending?

All over!  So sad!  Except not really, the Index will always be there, I get new comment notifications any time and they pop up on the homescreen too.  So feel free to come back to an old post at any point and add a new thought to it.  I think I have broken it down in a detailed enough way that if there is anything you might possibly want to discuss, there WILL be a specific location for it.  And this is the specific location for if we think all these characters will be able to find a true happy ending.

Tuesday Telugu: Aarya 2, A Brilliant Statement on Movies On Top of a Subtle Love Story

Happy Tuesday!  A fun movie to talk about this week, one that was recommended to me ages ago and I am just now getting around to thanks to Moviemavengal reminding me about it. (I know the two films aren’t really related, but if you want to see my review of Aarya 1, it is here)

Tuesday Telugu: Aarya Asks Which is Worse, Stalking or Partner Abuse?

This is one of those movies where I am watching it thinking “is the message I am seeing on purpose or an accident?  Or an purposeful accident?  Is it just where the characters ended up or was this the goal all along?  Or did the writer start thinking of it as a statement on film relationships and not realize it was a statement on real ones too?”  I think it is probably the last, because I started thinking about it in terms of film too, and then realized that it works just as well for real life.  And, in fact, hits exactly my issues with the way culture treats female safety.

Tuesday Telugu: Desamuduru, I Am Still Conflicted About Allu Arjun’s Hair

Another Allu Arjun film!  Am I remembering right that his hair changes frequently? Unlike most male stars, where the hair and the whole look is kind of part of their brand?  If so, I think he should keep changing, because this look is not the best.

Happy: Half a Cute Love Story, Half a Lesson About the Struggle of Professional Women

I watched Happy!  Because I wanted Bommarillu and I got confused.  But this one was still cute.  Is it possible there is a whole genre of “Genelia D’Suoza rom-coms”? Just because she has such a young perky face, she ends up in cute young perky love stories?
