Sridevi! Was a star from 13 to 54, but I want to focus on the last few years. Generally women of a certain age aren’t given good roles, but she came out with Puli, Mom, and English/Vinglish proving that wrong. In her honor, let’s share our favorite actresses of a certain age who are still working and proving their strength.Continue reading
Just like for Sonam, I am bringing up a nice little lower budget pleasant film you may have forgotten about. If you need a smile, you should watch this movie!Continue reading
Dimple has been very lucky, to have one of the longest lasting movie star romances in Hindi film. But we don’t talk about it, because technically her boyfriend is married.Continue reading
Last part! Although I may put up a bonus post kind of coming from the side and focusing on her relationship with Sunny.Continue reading
Part 1 was all Dimple, and her love story with Rajesh and so on. This brings in the next generation, but I think that is fair, you can’t really understand or appreciate Dimple without understanding her daughter.Continue reading
I wrote this 3 years ago I think, so it’s a little out of date, but most of it is dealing with stuff from a long time ago anyway, so it’s not like it has changed any.Continue reading
Happy Monday! I’m traveling today, sort of. My parents and I are moving up to the family lake house for the next two weeks, where internet access is spotty and the view is beautiful. No idea if this will affect posting schedules or not, we will all find out together.Continue reading
Well, this movie was a kick! Definitely a fun Sippy, an Andaz-Seeta Aur Geeta-Shaan Sippy, not a Sholay-Shakti Sippy. If you have been politely ignoring all my Sippy movie posts because they seem way too deep and serious, you can swing back now and watch this movie because it is fun fun FUN! And a little melodramatic and romantic, but that’s just a different kind of fun.Continue reading
If you watched the trailer and thought “I think I can guess the entire plot of this movie”, you are correct! You can guess the entire plot of the movie. But if you watched the trailer and thought “I’m not sure, I want to see it and see what happens”, or if you skipped the trailer entirely, you can skip this review too and just read the “no spoilers” version instead.Continue reading
You should all be very proud of me, I managed to finish my library book on kindle before midnight tonight when the library will magically take it away. And now it is too late for me to think through a serious “real’ blog post, so you will have to be happy with a non-real one.Continue reading
Is that title clear? I’m so tired, but I really want to have this discussion because I think it is interesting. What are the movies with a female love interest who is more complex than your usual “pretty face, good girl” kind of heroine?Continue reading
I’m back! And we are now done with Dharmendra. At least, as the leading character. Time to move him back to a supporting role and bring in some younger actors.Continue reading
This is the News Round-Up post I was going to put up yesterday, but then I did a silly TGIF instead. But now we can talk about it all Saturday! And I can do a bunch of tiny Saturday reports on news stories that aren’t important enough for a real post!Continue reading
Suggestion courtesy of Meenakshy, I’m gonna do best eyes in Indian film. In multiple categories, because you can’t really compare, like, Madhuri versus young Salman.
Thanks to a conversation in the comments with Alicia/Bollywood Newbie, I went back and watched this movie again, and it is sooooooooooooo much cuter than I remembered. Really just adorable. Oh, and also kind of unique and groundbreaking in the sort of story it tells.
Well, this is an interesting little burst of birthdays. Ekta is in here too, but she’s not a professional face person, so I’m not going to mix her in with the rest. But I think it is fair for Dimple, Shilpa, Amrita, and Sonam to all challenge each other.
Happy Birthday Dimple! I cannot BELIEVE you are 61! You are still the most elegant, the classiest, the coolest lady in Hindi film. Here are 15 reasons I love you, one for every year you were alive when Bobby came out and made you a superstar. (this is a reposted and updated post from last year)
Even more news! Announcements of upcoming movies primarily. Which kind of makes sense, we are entering the spring doldrums, so now is the time to start your promotion campaign while nothing exciting is hitting theaters.
Happy Sunday! Much later than usual. Because I am visiting my sister and I was busy learning how to crochet and stuff. Which brings me to this post! In honor of my sister industriously knitting away next to me, and our conversation on the TGIF post of the lack of nice handmade sweaters in the world, a knitting themed fanfic post!!!!
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.
