Hindi Action Films to Watch Once You Finish the Standard List

Follow up to my Rom-Com post!  And one I actually feel more deeply about, there are a lot of great clever action films out there that don’t get attention while big stupid ones do, a much bigger problem with action than in the rom-com genre.

Happy Spring Forward Day! Springy Songs! (The physical movement, not the season)

Nothing interesting in the news today (so desperate that outlets are falling back on the good old reliable Don 3 rumors), no birthdays, I already put up a review, so time to fall back on the oooooold reliable fill in, a theme song post!  But a fun theme this time (I hope), songs with people jumping around!

I’m Back at Work! Let Me Share With You My Inspirational Working Songs

It’s really not fair to all us account manager types that the end of the year accounting close period comes right after Christmas.  I’m still drinking eggnog for breakfast!  I’m not emotionally or mentally ready to be back at work!  Luckily, Indian soundtracks are here for me.  Let me walk you through the soundtrack of my work life.

Happy Birthday to My Closest Friend!

NOT my best friend!!!!  She is pushing for that commitment, but I am holding film against it, because that is the kiss of death.  Once you say “best friend”, the relationship ends immediately (in my experience).  Like when celebrity couples get tattoos of each other (Saif and Kareena excepted).  But I will say “closest friend”.  And, weirdly, she has the exact same birthday as my father.  Which creates a little testing of loyalties every year as I try to schedule them around each other.  Also Mickey Mouse, but I never really do anything to celebrate him, so it doesn’t really effect my plans.

Random Silly Post: Bang Bang! My Favorite Move of 2014

I’m still trying to get back in the swing of “normal” posting after the whole Jab Harry Met Sejal massive month long series.  Technically I don’t “owe” another review right now, I’ve done my Malayalam and Tamil/Telugu for the week, my DDLJ (yes, I am finally back to DDLJ) will be going up sometime tomorrow, Hindi Film 101 is happening like usual on Thursday, but it just doesn’t feel like enough!  So, here, have a bonus tiny review of a silly silly loveable movie.

TGIF Post: Happy Hrithik Week

Datablue pointed out that I completely forgot Hrithik in my last week’s “men in uniform” TGIF post.  I was all set to remedy that, when I remembered his birthday was coming up!  What could be a better gift to us all in honor of the occasion than an entirely Hrithik TGIF post?
