Aradhana! Chocolate hero Rajesh Khanna swept into the hearts of the nation through one mistaken night in an empty inn.Continue reading
Happy Friday! And also, Happy Good Friday!!! Easter this Sunday, which I will celebrate in my traditional style, by cleaning and eating a chocolate bunny. And by putting up this theme post. One of the best old classics, and also a very Easter-y plot.
Well, that was a Ratnam movie all right! In that, while watching it, I thought “this is kind of okay, sort of interesting, very pretty”. And then I’ve spent two hours thinking about it and I haven’t even gotten close to unpacking all the themes and metaphors and so on and it just gets deeper and deeper the further I go.
So, I am going on a trip! All by myself! Purely for pleasure! For the first time in my entire life! And today and Monday, I will be traveling literally all day. Like, for 14 hours straight. Which is a good thing, I get to sit on the plane/bus/train and just read for pleasure with no guilt over not doing something else productive, like writing blog posts.
I am going to be just super self-indulgent and use this holiday as an excuse to post a bunch of cute photos/videos of movie stars with babies. And as babies. And other babies who love movie stars.
