A selfish wish! For us, the audience! Who is it that you have always thought could be really REALLY sexy if they were given the right role? And who do you wish would get that role in 2021?Continue reading
Well, this was kind of a downer of a movie! Happy, in that I am glad these stories are being told. Sad, in that BLECH! These stories have so little hope! Anyway, if you don’t feel like being depressed, you can just read my summary and discuss below instead of watching it for yourself.Continue reading
Well, this is a total downer of a movie! The posters and even the title sell it as more fun happy women together sort of thing, it’s more of a “life sucks and then you die, having scratched out one small piece of happiness for yourself” kind of thing. Watch if you want a very well made and well performed version of a woman’s life in modern urban India, don’t watch if you want escapism.Continue reading
What a good movie! It takes the question “why would a man consider cheating?” and treats it seriously. I encourage you all to watch it if you possibly can, and then come here and discuss it. If you absolutely cannot see it in theaters, and still want to see how they managed to make this plot acceptable, you can read on.Continue reading
Okay, I am going to describe this in a way that will excite a very small subset of people: this is the movie that the director of Happy Bhaag Jayegi can make now that he finally has a decent budget. Okay, now all the Happy Bhaag Jayegi/Happy Phir Bhaag Jayegi superfans can rush out and buy tickets! For the rest of you, I guess I still have to sell it somehow. Really, believe me, you will like it!Continue reading
Huh! Two teaser trailers today and I’m not sure what to think about either of them. Luckily, I have you all to help me decide what to think!Continue reading
Let’s see if I can do this! Maria in the comments said she has a hard time understanding what “debutante” means in descriptions of casts. And it sent me down a road, and I think what I am going to try to do is give the very brief highlights of all the working actors in Hindi film today.Continue reading
Once again, I am running late. But this wasn’t a super interesting episode, so hopefully it won’t take me long to write it up.Continue reading
Okay Karan, I’ll let you make me stay up late one more night. I am so tired, but this can’t wait until morning.
Another review and another movie! I am being so productive this weekend. And this was a very different movie from Race 3.
I already put up my no spoilers review, I encourage you to read that one, because this is a really sweet movie that deserves to be seen and not spoiled. On the other hand, we do mostly know the plot just from the trailer, so I guess in this case spoilers aren’t THAT bad. It’s not what happens, it’s how it happens.
Well, I’ve been putting this off, because I didn’t have much to say. And also because a got a nice string of abuse on my no-spoilers review. Which is why I am a little mad at this movie. Because it’s leaving me open for abuse! Being so political that I can’t avoid commenting on the politics, even though I want to run a nice film analysis blog that only deals with social issues in generalities, not specifics. And clearly it is political, because there are angry people looking for me to say bad things about it. Oh well, I’ll spoil it for you all anyway, and maybe someone will leave a nice comment on this one.
Well, that was an interesting movie going experience! One half a charming unusual love story, one half a massive Modi propaganda movie. And then a hidden third half in a parallel dimension that is what the movie really wanted to be about and couldn’t. The movie I thought the trailer was promising us.
Slow news day, but Salman did attend the trailer release yesterday, so we got some cool quotes from that. And there were a couple of release dates announced. And Yash Raj is going to battle for Parineeti and Bhumi.
