Netflix Serieses for Shahrukh! Red Chillies, Take These Ideas Free of Charge!

Having another lazy night, eating popcorn and watching BBC mysteries while the dog sleeps. It’s one of those days where it is so cold outside that once you get inside, your body goes into hibernation mode. Anyway, this means it is a good time for me to do a nice cosy little post, the ideas we have crowdsourced for the Netflix family series that Shahrukh should make in order to have a nice work-life balance while still keeping his face in front of the world in a non-controversial way.

To Celebrate the End of Shahrukh Month, Shahrukh Movies Re-Written Without Shahrukh (Yes, a romance for Rani and Kajol in KKHH)

Oh boy, a totally indulgent post! I love writing fanfic, and I am having a lazy happy evening with my dog. Don’t care if none of you read this (well, I care a little bit. It makes me really happy when you comment on my fanfic, especially with your own ideas), this will just be happy for ME.

Silly Sunday: Expansion of the “14 Plots to Take a Second Pass” Post! Kuch Kuch, Kal Ho Na Ho, Asoka

I was trying to come up with a new idea, but I just kept cycling back to yesterday’s post, so finally I decided to lean into it and write the additional ideas that were in my head.

Silly Sunday: The Gay Love Scenes Missing from War, and bonus Hugh Jackman-Shahrukh Musical Romance

Filmikudhi and I wrote an amazing Hugh Jackman-Shahrukh romance with lots of songs, and on the other hand there are also the gay love scenes that it feels like must have been in War at one point and then some no-fun common sense person said that you can’t have an explicit love scene between Hrithik and Tiger.

One Off Speculative Post: Epic Historic Romances India Should Make Instead of War Films, Including Shahrukh as Jahangir in a Nur Jahan Love Story!

I never thought I would say this, but I am so sick of big battles! With horses and swords and elephants. Okay, I tell a lie, I will never be sick of elephants. But the other stuff, yes. Let’s have more historical romances!

Pick a Plot! Three Same-Sex Family Story American Classics You Should All Watch, and Consider the Remakes

Silly post, but I’m running late this morning and I just wanted to throw up something silly. Mostly this is a recommendation post for three really great American family films that happen to revolve around homosexuality. One of my earliest memories is my mother and the video store clerk bonding over how ridiculous it is that The Birdcage is rated “R” since it is one of the most loving and warm family films to ever come out of Hollywood. Along with The Birdcage, you should also watch Kissing Jessica Stein and In and Out because they are all wonderful and loving and warm family movies. And then we can all recast them for India.

Women Directors Week Sequel Post: Sequels for Zoya and Reema, Gauri, and Tanuja; Luck By Chance, Talaash, Dil Dhadakne Do, Gully Boy, English/Vinglish, Dear Zindagi, Qarib Qarib Singlle

I’m still fighting off a case of the Mondays, and nothing cheers me up like fanfic! And this is fun fanfic, the ones where I don’t have to come up with characters and stuff, I can just piggyback on characters we already know and love.

Shahrukh Summer: Happy Endings for Sad Shahrukh Movies

I don’t actually think these are “better” endings, I just like happy endings, even if they aren’t true to the rest of the narrative. Every film should end with a marriage and a baby and a happy reprise of the title song. So in my headcanon, these are how these movies end. Happy happy!
