Have I mentioned that we have been short staffed at work due to a killer flu that is making it’s way through the employees for the past TWO WEEKS??? Anyway, I don’t always have as much time to write a post in the middle of the day as I could wish. So I am going to make up for that with a quick fun songs post.
The box office figures are sooooooooooooooo bad right now, that it made me think about why exactly they are so bad, and if this is a good thing or bad thing. And I landed on “bad” and also “it’s the audience’s fault”. So get ready for me to get deep and complex towards the end!
It’s Sidharth Malhotra’s birthday! I know, because Karan tweeted him wishes. Seems like I should be able to do at least as much as Karan for Sidharth. I’m not going to do a full 32 reasons I love you, but I will shoot for at least a dozen.
I went back and forth on this one. I really really wanted to do Nargis Farkri, because she drives me crazy, but that didn’t seem fair. Because she was kind of set up to fail in her movie roles, with a bunch of characters that never made sense and no real direction, so she was left to sort of pouting her way through the part as best she could. No, I want to give it to someone who had a good script backed role and failed to manage it. (did that header trick you into thinking it might be Kat? No! She actually did a pretty good job in her movies this year)
Global figures are out for Baar Baar! And Bollywoodhungama says that they are “dismal”, but I’m not seeing it? But maybe that’s just because I am missing some extra information, like how big was the budget and how much were the distribution rights sold for. Oh, and also a new weird photo of Aamir
I already posted my non-spoilers review, now it’s time for the Spoilers one! I’m going to also try to go through the whole film real quick point by point, so you can follow my reasoning even if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet. Or if you don’t want to see it, but you want to know what happened. (second half through to the ending available here)
Boy, it’s been awhile since we had a nice glitzy release, right? With lots of pretty clothes and songs and a wedding somewhere in there? Well, if that’s what you’ve been waiting for, here it is!
Two trailers that I haven’t gotten around to discussing yet, and just to round out the post, my favorite song from KANK (actually, one of my all time favorite songs), in honor of the 10 year anniversary of its release.
So, Baar Baar Dekho trailer finally dropped today, which made me take a look at a couple of other trailers for movies I am less excited about that have been out for a while.
Trailer!!! Dharma Trailer! Even if I don’t end up enjoying the movie, Dharma is the BEST at the promotions! Oh, and some other less exciting stuff is also happening.
Finally! A juicy story involving family connections and possible repercussions through out the industry! I mean, most likely it will all blow over in a couple of days, but at least it is exciting while it lasts!
Well, “trailers”. There is a legitimate new trailer for Mohenjo Daro, but there is just a first look image for Baar Baar Dekho, which I actually forgot was even happening. This is what happens when you don’t cast any big names in your film! The gossip press doesn’t feel the need to keep us updated on the filming and it ends up being ready for release without anyone realizing it.
