Historic Films Week: Asoka, Shahrukh's Attempt at an Epic

I just wrote this review and posted it less than 2 months ago, but in case you missed it, here it is again!

In Honor of Reposting the Review Tomorrow, My Rewrite of Asoka to Be More Historically Accurate and Interesting

I think this film, my film, would be far far better. The Asoka we got just touched the surface of his life, this movie would really dig in to the meat of it.

Silly Sunday: Expansion of the “14 Plots to Take a Second Pass” Post! Kuch Kuch, Kal Ho Na Ho, Asoka

I was trying to come up with a new idea, but I just kept cycling back to yesterday’s post, so finally I decided to lean into it and write the additional ideas that were in my head.

Shahrukh Summer: Shahrukh in Husband Roles, Which Would You Marry, Divorce, or Leave at the Alter?

This is a variation on a previous post, but in that case I was leaving it open to all Shahrukh roles. Now I am limiting it to just the ones where he actually played a husband so we have a clear comparison. And also to help alert you all to this post from late last night where I discussed Shahrukh as a husband on film.

Shahrukh Summer: July 4th FanFic! 25 SRK Characters Filled in, Part 1

This is a rerun from his birthday celebration. Some of these are straight up sequel suggestions, some of them are just sketching in the backstory for characters who don’t really have a backstory. But I think they are all fun! And should be pleasant on a holiday for you all to read and comment about without needing to think too hard.

Silly Sunday Post: Happy 25 Days to SRK’s Birthday! 25 Characters in Need of More Story

I was tempted to do one long post for one of these, but that would break the list pattern.  Plus, be harder to write.  So some will be longer, some will be shorter, but there will be a full 25.  And that will give you all a lot to talk about in the comments.

Happy 28 Days to SRK’s Birthday! 28 Romances, Part 3

I am finding this fascinating, looking at the slow progression of the Shahrukh Khan romance over the years.  Not every romance, but almost all, the ones I find interesting to talk about. (part 1 here, part 2 here)

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: What If Our Favorite Historical Characters Were Allowed Happy Endings? Rang De Basanti, Asoka, Mughal-E-Azam

This is semi-inspired by a conversation I had in the comments on the Rang De Basanti post with Shaily about what would need to change for Siddharth and Soha to end up together.  Essentially, the whole movie except for the characters.  Which got me thinking about all the Indian historical films that I really wish could have historically inaccurate happier endings.

Shahrukh Week Continues! In Honor of the Royal Visit, a Discussion of His Royal Performances!

Happy Shahrukh Week Day 2!  Only 5 days left for Fan!  Of course, he is taking a break from Fan promos (although supposedly there was a discussion of having the royal couple do a “Jabra Fan” dubsmash) to greet the royal couple.  I’ll also take a break from Fan, to think about Shahrukh and his royal roles.

Fan Vid Time! Adele, Elvis, Britney, and Shahrukh!

So, I was in the mood for some good new SRK fanvids last night.  Who knows why!  Maybe it was something I ate, maybe it was that I just re-watched Asoka, maybe it was because I was spending too long staring at the incredibly sexy Dabboo Ratnani photos…. (It’s the photos).

Anyway, here are some of the best ones I found!
