Moviemavengal confessed her love for the “fake marriage” romance trope, and it’s one I like quite a bit as well. And it’s pretty rare in Indian film, replaced by “real arranged marriage becomes love” which isn’t quite the same thing. So I shall write a few script suggestions just in case anyone needs any! (oh, and if you want to see one that already exists, check out Love By Square Foot on Netflix)
I am so tired. Forgive the (even more than usual) typos I will be making, it’s very late. But I have to get up early tomorrow and drive up to my parents, so I want to write the reviews tonight and be done with them.
This is such a nice song. Of that particular kind of love song that isn’t making big statements either with the lyrics or the visuals, just showing the everyday kind of love. Which makes me hope that the movie as a whole will show us that kind of love too.
What an interesting looking movie! And what an interesting movie for this studio to make with these stars at this moment.
Thanks to Alisa/Bollywood Newbie for the idea! I always think it is good to give positive feedback, so let’s talk about what actresses we admire most for what they have done for women. Maybe it will just be me and Alisa going back and forth, but we’ll have a good time and that is good enough.
For her birthday (/to take advantage of Kat being trending news today), Shahrukh posted her first look from Zero and a little introductory statement on his twitter. So, let’s obsess over it! The way we do.
Happy Father’s Day! This is a repost from last year, but it is very long and worth rereading. And also very very good, I forgot how good this one was! There’s Rana and Shahrukh fighting in wet shirts, Ranbir and Sonakshi falling in love, Varun Dhawan and a baby, all kinds of good things. Also, it’s a Father’s Day Multiverse and all the stories are connected. And anyway, I am spending 6 hours at church today (service plus organizing coffee hour plus meeting), so I earned a rerun.
Mamootty picks the BEST story ideas for his age. After Bhaskar the Rascal, here is another one, Pullikkaran Staraa, that is age appropriate and interesting and could so easily be translated into a Hindi film. Especially since the Malayalam original was only moderately successful and of only moderate quality.
Yaaaay! A super fun one inspired by Sonam’s Party of the Century wedding earlier this week. Wedding dresses! Combining both the full formal wedding sari, and the fun reception outfits, so we get two sets of dresses to gaze at.
I already did a very long detailed take down of Bharat Ane Nenu this morning, including an overview of the Indian Constitution and it’s deeper social meaning, I’m exhausted, and I know at least one of you also watches both B99 and Indian film, so I am going to indulge myself with a fun easy recasting post. Plus, the news just broke that B99 was canceled, so the time is ripe for an Indian spin off.
I already put up a MASSIVE Anushka post and I didn’t want it to be too super super long, so I pulled this one story out. Also, this is the story I need the most help with because I can’t figure out how to end it.
Once again, you did the work for me! At least partially. For Anushka’s birthday, we were talking about who we wanted to see her with in her next movies, and that started me out with thinking about what those movies would be like.
Anushka is 30! And still younger than me (just like she was last year, such a coincidence!) and has accomplished so much more. Oh well, such is aging. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Well, that was as draining and difficult as expected. NOT because it was a fake horror movie, but because it was a fake horror movie that was representing real horrors. If you are planning to watch it, don’t read on, read the no spoilers review instead. But if you aren’t planning to watch it and want to join in a fascinating discussion, please do!
Third movie in theaters in one weekend! Woo-hoo! Partly possible because I didn’t have to teach Sunday School for once, and because I was able to get to the early show on Friday so I didn’t spend my Saturday exhausted. So don’t get used to this, might be the only weekend for a while that I can make it happen. But it was nice to manage it once.
But you didn’t think this post would show up on Aamir Day! But it is, he has more dialogue than anyone else, so why not?
My first fanfic post was very long, had no SRK, and only had one story option. All of these things have resulted in the past in a lack of interest from the readership. So to make it up I am going to do something short, with a lot of options, and lots of SRK.
Here’s a random post. There’s a big thought provoking scary hard important post coming tomorrow morning, but I wanted one more nice film discussion post first. And Angie reminded me that I had still not written about this film.
Oh boy, lots of interesting movies to talk about today! None of which are actually out there in the world yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about them
These two sections were alike in that they were the only ones that had very limited responses. All the other sections, related to films, the answers were all over the place.
More photos are out, and rather than updating the previous post which you may not notice, I am putting out a whole new one.
