Happy Thappad Release Day! Biggest Question, How Do We Rank Feminist Male Supporting Characters By Hotness?

I haven’t seen Thappad yet, but from the trailers and cast I think it might be one of those feminist movies that doesn’t include the token hot male feminist. Booooo! I want my hot male feminist! It’s the sexy action film bar dancer equivalent for serious woman’s film social dramas.

Happy 15 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday!!!! 15 Best Characters He Has Played

Just to be clear, this is not best performances.  “Performances” would mean he brought something extra to the role.  Which of course he did, but here I want to focus on characters, characters as written in the script, who would have been interesting no matter who played them.

Final Vacation Report

I’m having another traveling day today.  Which means my official “vacation” is over.  But not really, because all I wanted to do was read for pleasure without feeling guilty about it.  And I can do that just as easily sitting in an airport terminal as sitting in a park in the sunshine.  Anyway, I thought you might want to get a final report on how it went!
