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.

Well, there was no over-whelming consensus on my voting post last Thursday as to what to do next, so I think I will pick the Khanna-Kumars. Partly because I started Dimple’s story and never finished it with the Kapoors, partly because I am in love with Twinkle and Akshay after their Koffee appearance, and partly because Rajesh Khanna was a very big deal and you should know about him!
I already posted my first 24 reasons, here are the final 25 to get us all the way up to 49 and one for every year of your life!!!
Happy Birthday Dimple! I cannot BELIEVE you are almost 60! 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.
