You know what is good for SAD? An excuse to look at puppies! That, along with the slight glimpse of sun today, is going to cheer me right up!Continue reading
I wouldn’t bother with this trailer if it were just another Amitabh revenge thriller type thing, but it’s produced by Red Chillies, which adds on another layer of interest.Continue reading
Thank you Filmilibrarian for this term/idea! By “fancy tax collector pants”, I mean the pants that Ajay wore in Raid, which were the standard office worker slacks, only very very very VERY well fitted.Continue reading
I’m trying to catch up on Koffee. It’s hard, because you know how detailed I like to be in my discussions! And this is probably going to be another detailed one. But then, it was also a really interesting episode. I can always hope the others are dull and then it will be easy to write about them.Continue reading
I really like this movie. I know it isn’t one of the super super best Mukherjee films, but I don’t care, it makes me happy!Continue reading
Tomorrow has to be Christmas-y, because that is The Rule, but I am sneaking in a random post just because I love you and I want you all to be happy.Continue reading
Should this be my tradition? Every Ambani Wedding week, I repost this? I guess, because I know so little about the family that it’s not like I will ever have anything to add to it.
Yaaaay! One of my all time favorite movies! I really hope some of you like it enough to talk about it, or (even better) where inspired to watch it because I scheduled this post. It’s so good! And no one ever talks about it!
Happy Day After Thanksgiving!!!! Also known as, “the day I get to sleep in and then organize my life”. I’m excited! But also, taking a break because I will always always bring you your TGIF posts.
On my second watch (kidnapped by my friend Dina and forced to rewatch it), I amused myself by picturing the film without Aamir as part of it. And you know, it works! There is no actual narrative need for Aamir to be there. Here, I’ll show you. Oh, and this will make a lot more sense if you’ve already seen the movie.
I already put up Part 1, plus reviews and stuff, you can check them out in the Thugs of Hindostan index here. This is not a super detailed scene by scene, but it is a little detailed, there was just more stuff I wanted to talk about than could be included in the SPOILER review.
I already put up my No Spoilers review, you can read that if you want to avoid spoilers. Most of the fun of the movie is in the action set-pieces which I can’t really spoil, so you don’t have to be that careful about it, read this review if you want. Oh, and this review is a little short because I am planning to do a semi-scene by scene for this film. Probably more like first half/second half, but the structure and visuals were interesting enough that I want to dissect them piece by piece over the next few days.
Well, that was odd! A movie with a lot of depth and meaning and purpose that somehow got shrunk and diminished until it became meaningless and small and ugly. Huh. Oh, but the action scenes are still kind of fun, you should still watch it for that if you want.
Our last Shahrukh Month Review! So SAD!!!! There is still Jab Harry Met Sejal Day to look forward to on Sunday, but that won’t be a “new” movie to the blog. Oh well, there’s always the much less important holiday seasons of Diwali and Christmas to look forward to once Shahrukh Month is over.
Happy Friday! I managed to get through the week somehow! Well, almost, I’ve got one more day left. But yesterday was the day when the staff went from 4 to 1 (me). Today and Monday it will be back up to 2, and then by Tuesday it will be all the way to 4 again (woo).
First song! Which is kind of “ho-hum” based on what we have seen. But still something fun and festive to talk about!
Well, I seem to have stopped sleeping. Through my own stupidity, so I am also very angry at my past self. Oh well, maybe I can stay up all night tonight and reset my internal clock.
Have you ever wanted to see Amitabh, Vidya, Saif, Sanjay Dutt, Sharmila Tagore, Boman Irani, and Jackie Shroff all in the same movie? And all playing magnificent complex interesting roles? Then, this is the film for you!
Oops, I almost forgot Amitabh’s Birthday! Oh well, better late than never. And instead of reposting the same old annual post, I am going to do something totally new, a post of songs of Amitabh not being afraid to loosen up and have a little fun as he gets older. While most men become more traditional and strict as they get older, Amitabh has become a little more wild and fun.
This is such a good post, totally deserves to be updated and re-used. Especially so we can all prepare to compare these sword emotions with the Thugs sword emotions.
So glad I rewatched this movie! Especially after having seen October, so I can see what is unique to this film and what is just Shoojit Sircar. And, more importantly, what is just Deepika.
Well, this is exciting!!!! Amitabh has a sword, Aamir does NOT have a beard (thank goodness), and Katrina has no dialogue. Nor does Fatima, so I guess it’s a woman thing.
Well, the opening salvo of Thugs promotions has been fired. It’s no longer just the ramp up news stories teasing things, it’s the actual official motion posters. To be followed by teasers and then song teasers and then a trailer and then a barrage of interviews, and finally the film just as we become completely sick of hearing about it.
