I first did this post over a year ago, but now I am updating it and putting it up again because the Kesari first look gives new meaning to the word “turban”.
This is usually the day I do my box office report, but I went over to BH to get the numbers and ran into a bunch of news stories I thought I should talk about first. So box office is coming, eventually, but first news for us!
I already put up my No Spoilers review, and this really is a good movie, so I would recommend skipping this review until after you watch it, if you are able to watch it. The trailer gives away the general outlines of the plot, but there is a lot more to it which deserves to be seen with fresh eyes, not spoiled by me.
This was such a nice movie! Not a perfect movie, a little confused in some parts, felt like the connective tissue was missing a bit, but overall a very nice movie.
Ready for a bunch of inspirational stories? They were down, they were hopeless, it was all impossible, and then against the odds they rose up again!!!!!! I am going to be so sick of inspiration by Independence Day, hopefully I can still enjoy Gold.
Normally I try to mix these trailer posts up a little, adding in a few to compare. But right now, there is NOTHING. Because stupid Padmavat messed up the release schedule and there is this weird gap. All the movies that got moved to February last minute, their trailers came out months ago when they were supposed to release. And all the movies that might otherwise be release in February have scuttled forward to March and their trailers aren’t out yet. But this one trailer does look fun!
Happy Lohri! Which is a Winter Solstice holiday in the Punjab, usually celebrated with a big bonfire! There are of course plenty of Lohri specific songs in Indian films, but they would be super hard to track down, plus I wouldn’t like all of them! Instead, to celebrate this Punjabi holiday, I am just going to post my all time favorite Bhangra/Punjabi songs, counting down from number 5 to number 1. There are a lot of them, because there are a lot of Punjabi refugees who ended up in the Bombay film industry. Because they needed jobs, and also Punjabis are HOTT.
(This is a Repost from last year, the top 5 are the same, but I added and removed some of the bonus songs) Continue reading
Happy Cyber Monday! If my website loads slowly today, it’s not my fault, it’s The Internet. Well, more accurately, The People on The Internet. So, be patient, and load this whole story, and you can read a bunch of not very exciting news stories.
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.
Well that was a short movie! Strolled out of the theater a few minutes after 10, with a 7:45 start time and a 10 minute intermission. But a nice movie. A nice concise small movie. It felt kind of like a fairy tale, or a fable. A story for children, nice and simple and easy to remember and understand.
March is gonna be a GOOD MONTH!!!! Much better than February, where we have that Pakistani rom-com that looks pretty great, and Rangoon, which I am still not very interested in.
Jatt and Juliet is the first Punjabi movie I started, and the first Punjabi movie I ended, but there was a 5 year gap in the middle there. I rented it right when it first came out, after hearing all the buzz about how it was setting records and breaking out of the regional market. And then somehow I just didn’t get into it, and I turned it off half way. But I re-started it last night, and made it all the way to the end, and turns out, I love it!
Such a disturbing movie. Like, not sure if I can go to sleep tonight kind of disturbing. Very disturbing. But also very high quality.
