It’s Sridevi’s birthday! I am so excited about celebrating! Because it means we all get to watch a bunch of really great song sequences as I list of my reasons that I love her. I did 13 reasons last year, but now she is one year older, so I will do 14! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Ugh, that feels so exclusionary! It’s just because it is a political action post, and unfortunately if you can’t vote in American elections, this won’t be that useful for you. Also, sorry that it’s not really Indian film related, I will return to regularly schedule blog programming on my next post.
I watched this movie aaaaaaaaages ago, mostly because I like the one song from it so much. And also Mohnish Behl. And then I just quickly fast-forwarded through it this morning to refresh my memory. It’s good! A little on the nose, but it doesn’t hurt to be on the nose about these issues.
Happy Mother’s Day! I could post something about Mother India or Aradhana or English Babu Desi Mem, one of those where the mother-son relationship is super important. But it’s not a day for mothers and sons, it’s a day for mothers! So instead I am posting about a movie in which a Mother gets the spotlight all to herself.
