This is really just because Amitabh’s tweet made me laugh out loud and I wanted to share the smile. But might as well through in the SRK selfie and SOTY2 images too, just for funsies!Continue reading
I know this is the film that invented the Angry Young Man. I know it is a Big Story about power and the state and so on and so forth. And that’s why I enjoy it and respect it the same way I enjoy any of the other Amitabh classics, Sholay or Deewar or Trishul or Agneepath. But the reason I love it just for me, is because Jaya and Amitabh are SO IN LOVE. Like, so in love that it is blinding. It’s not a surprise they got married as soon as they finished filming, it would have been a surprise if the DIDN’T get married.Continue reading
Kind of related to Secret Superstar, right? Another movie about a female protegee of a successful musician. But completely different in every other way. Anyway, an interesting film to talk about!Continue reading
Happy Jaya Day! I’m going to repost some of her reviews, and her fanfic, over the day. Won’t that be fun????Continue reading
I’m just going to say it, Deewar is the best written film in the history of Hindi cinema. I did a mini-review of it related to the release of Raees, I am going to expand on that mini-review and try to give it the detailed discussion it deserves.Continue reading
My favorite Yashji and Amitji’s film! Not the best one, that I know, but my personal favorite.Continue reading
Happy Shashi’s birthday!!!! What a wonderful day, and what a wonderful week, a Shashi review every day! Starting with Kabhi Kabhi, a multi-starrer where Shashi is easily the best man on screen.Continue reading
Happy Sunday! And let me remind you of one of the all time greatest Hindi films, and definitely the best exploration of how “true love” is bad and selfish.Continue reading
I thought I didn’t have a lot to say about these, but now all three are out, and I know a lot of you have watched them, I thought I might as well put up a space for us to talk about them. And then I turned out to have A LOT to say after all!Continue reading
Yaaaay, a good movie! I love when I can review a good movie instead of complaining about a bad one. This isn’t, like “brilliant perfect best ever” movie. But it is very well-made and generally solid. If you like kind of mystery thriller movies. Oh, and AVOID SPOILERS. Don’t read this review if you have any chance of watching this movie, read this review instead.Continue reading
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.
