Happy Birthday Sonakshi Sinha!!!!!! Turning 33 today, wow! Did not realize she was that old. I guess it is because she has such a fun bubbly youthful spirit.Continue reading

Film of the Decade: Bahubali or Not Bahubali?
Really, there’s only one contender here. It’s Bahubali, or Other. And if it’s Other, you better be ready to defend your choice.Continue reading
Dabangg 3 Review (No Spoilers): Salman and Prabhudeva Are an Odd Mixture!
I saw it! 1:45pm show, me and 3 other people in the theater, and I kept falling asleep. No slight on the movie, just because I was in a warm dark quiet empty theater, and it’s been a long week.Continue reading
2010 Week: Dabangg!!!! 2010 Goes Out With a Surprisingly Progressive BANG!
This movie really really holds up. It’s a silly action film and it isn’t ashamed of that, but it also talks about caste, Polio, political use of religion, and other serious things that most films don’t discuss.Continue reading
Best Hindi Love Songs of 2010, Ranked
Yes, I am doing it, I am taking a stand and making a judgment call! These are the best love songs of 2010 and everything else is useless TRASH! Not only that, I’m even ranking them. Disagree if you dare. (oh, and there will probably be a party song post later, so don’t freak out because “Sheila Ki Jawani” is missing or something. Just pure love songs)Continue reading
Friday Classics: Dabangg!!! The Most Progressive Film You Never Noticed Was Progressive
Dabangg! Finally getting around to it. And feeling “wasteful”, since I am going to have to come up with at least 7 posts for Salman week and now here I am wasting a topic I should have saved. At least Salman was considerate enough to release his film right before his birthday, so it will all just sort of flow together. Anyway, I will have to come up with another 7 topics without Dabangg (or possibly 14 if I decide to give him the full movie week and birthday week he is owed), because I have stuff to say about it and I want to say it this week! A lot to say, as it turns out, this ended up being the longest Classics Friday post so far.
News Round-Up: Dabangg 3 and Sonakshi, Diljit and Kriti, and Shahrukh and Karan and Farah
Happy Monday! Time to see what everyone’s been up to over the weekend. Not as exciting as some Mondays, but there are a few mildly interesting stories out there.
New Raees Song!
Is this just a thing now? Shahrukh always keeps back one song for luck, and then posts it a week later? Because he’s done it again!
TGIF: Rangoon Inspired Post, Men in Uniform!
I’m with holding judgement on Rangoon as a whole, but I am whole-heartedly behind Shahid Kapoor in a WWII uniform! We already got a hint of Shahid in uniform in Mausam, but not nearly enough. And not enough of men in uniform in general. More uniformed heroes! That’s what I say.
Happy Birthday Salman! Here Are My Favorite of Your Jodis!
The celebration continues! I’ve done hair (very important) and film performances, now it’s time for film partnerships! One of the things I love about Salman is how he is willing to step back and let his co-stars shine if it is better for the narrative. And so he has helped to create one half of some all time great “jodi”s.
Happy 70th Birthday Vinod Khanna!
Vinod Khanna! I am conflicted about him. But it’s his 70th birthday, I will see if I can come up with a dozen reasons to love him.
Casting News Update: Sonakshi Dabanggs, Aamir Dutts?
This is one of those posts where the news is way more exciting than anything I could say about it. So it will basically be just me repeating the facts.
Dabangg and Sultan: Salman’s Mustache Roles
Sultan week continues! Day 2, I’ve already talked about Salman as a widower, what relationship Sultan may have to Ali Abbas Zafar’s other films, and what connection it might have with previous Anushka performances. New topic: why a mustache?
