Silly Sunday: Fake Marriage Romances, One of the Best Romance Tropes, Featuring Aditya-Anushka, Ranveer-Dips, and SRKajol

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)

Sui Dhaaga Review (SPOILERS): A Love Story and a business story, working together like needle and thread

This is a nice pleasant pretty predictable movie, one of those that it is kind of hard to spoil because you can probably guess most of it.  But just in case you really really don’t want to be spoiled, you can read my No Spoilers review instead of this one.

Silly Sunday: Couples We Want to See, Varun-Parineeti to Arjun-Anushka to Swara-Ajay to Varun-Bhumi to Alia-Ayushmann

These are really stories you wrote yourself.  Or at least started yourself, on the Wednesday post I had a wonderful time coming up with ideas based on the casts you wanted to see. These are those same ideas, just brushed up and expanded a little bit.

Discussion Post: Who Are the Most Feminist Actresses in India?

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.

Silly Sunday: Father’s Day! Father Plots For Everyone, Pick Your Favorite

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.

I Just Watched Another Malayalam Movie That Could be Remade for Shahrukh! Or Aamir or Salman

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.

Silly Narrowcasting Post Warning! Recasting Brooklyn 99 With Indian Actors, Something NO ONE is Interested In

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.

Silly Sunday: Movies For Anushka! Reunion with Ranveer, New Jodi With Ayushmann, and New SRK Movie!

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.

Pari Review (SPOILERS): The Primal Fear of All Men Which Leads to the Primal Danger for All Women

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!

Pari Review (No Spoilers): A Fairy Tale After All

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.

Silly Sunday: Quickie Bonus FanFics! Snowed in with SRK

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.
