I watched it! The whole thing! It was very stressful. Boys, driving tests, making college decisions, BLECH! And if that wasn’t enough, disappointing your parents the WORST THING EVER. But yes, a great show, an easy watch, and lots of fun easter eggs for Hindi film fans.Continue reading

Instagram Round-Up: Farhan Wedding, Hrithik Beard, and Random Other Thing That Makes Me Laugh
Farhan got married! And NONE OF YOU TOLD ME!!! I thought we understood each other, I thought we had a dynamic of you telling me things and then me researching and writing posts. I can’t be out there trying to learn stuff on my own! Social Media is TERRIFYING!Continue reading
Toofan Review (SPOILERS): Let Us All Sympathize With the Poor Bigot! The Fragile Bigot! Who Cannot Handle New Ideas or He Will EXPLODE!!!!
It’s true, the movies have shown me. The old white man in America who has to painfully and carefully learn that, maybe, not all racism is good. Poor Lord Crawley in Downton Abbey who has to consider that maybe class distinctions are sometimes unfair. And of course all the Hindu patriarchs in Indian films who have to suffer being told that, sometimes, maybe, non-Hindus and women have a right to live.Continue reading
Toofan Review (No Spoilers): Really Makes Me Appreciate Sultan
Well, I watched it! And it was super frustrating! Very good bit-bad bit, good bit-bad bit, and on and on. I’m recommending it if you really like Farhan Akhtar (he is super charming), and if you are desperate for a romance (there’s a sweet one). But I am not recommending it as a movie as a whole because it is way WAY too confused.Continue reading
Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Have a Lazy Saturday!!!
Happy Saturday!!! My biggest project for the day: finding a staging area for my new puzzle. Not even finishing it, just finding a staging area. I dream small.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown, Don 1! New Review!
Really, First Review. I did a combined thing of Don 1 and Don 2 and a little bit Don Original, but I never did a review specifically of the Don 1 film.Continue reading
Happy Birthday Mahesh Babu! Here is a Review of a Movie of Yours I Quite Quite Disliked, Bharat Ane Nenu
Seems a mean way to start off his birthday, but I feel like Mahesh perhaps needs some help coming down to earth. So this is the most loving thing I can give him. Also, a loving birthday gift for us all, the “Margaret hates this movie” reviews are always fun reads, and you don’t have to worry about being spoiled because you won’t be watching it anyway!Continue reading
It’s Friendship Day! What Famous Real Life Celebrity Friendships Make You Happiest?
Happy Friendship Day! According to the made up holiday calendars by which florists live their lives and therefore just sent me an email alerting me!Continue reading
Discussion Post: Today’s Hindi Heroes, Smart or Dumb? Place Your Votes!
I got like 5 hours of sleep last night and I still have to get through 2 more hours of work (after leaving for the airport at 4:30am my time, then flying, then landing, then driving straight to work), so I am going to put up a very silly sleep-deprived post.Continue reading
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara: The Loneliness of Masculinity
Thank you Netflix-Excel deal! I got a chance to watch this movie for a second time, and I liked it quite a bit better on this watch. Especially now that I started with the knowledge I gained on my first watch, that the key to the whole thing is Hrithik.Continue reading
Excel Entertainment Moved to Netflix! Which Movies Should You Watch in What Order of Priority???
Woo, Excel Entertainment! Such an odd interesting company, I was going to say that they have never produced a bad movie, but I forgot about Game. Besides Game, they have never produced a bad movie.Continue reading
Hrithik Week: Lakshya, One of Hrithik’s 4 Great Performances (Lakshya, Luck By Chance, Jodha-Akbar, Agneepath)
This is a movie that is a bit hard to find, and isn’t discussed much, but every time I watch it I am impressed by how unusual and high quality it is, and how unusual and high quality Hrithik’s performance is.Continue reading
News Round-Up: Manikarnika Sinking Ship, Manju Warrier and Dhanush Together, Farhan and Farah Break-Up
Not usual to do a news post on a Wednesday night, but I just could not resist the Manikarnika story. You know how addictive I find that whole disastrous soap opera.Continue reading
Upcoming Non-Hindi Movies!!! Prime Series and Malayalam Excitement!
Well, this is a sign! I am excited about two upcoming things, and neither of them are traditional Hindi theatrical releases. Not only that, both of them were tweeted/promoted by mainstream Hindi film people, so the industry is paying more attention outside of Hindi theatrical releases too.Continue reading
Friday Classics: Lakshya, a Coming of Age War Story
I always forget how good this movie is, and then I watch it again and it is just REALLY REALLY good. And sometimes I feel like I am the only person who realizes that, it’s not talked about nearly as much as you would expect for a Farhan Akhtar/Hrithik Roshan/Amitabh Bachchan/Boman Irani/Amrish Puri/Om Puri/Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy/Javed Akhtar/Preity Zinta movie.
Friday Classics: Don 1 and 2, a Late Birthday Present for Priyanka
You have all been delightfully patient with my incredibly dull history of media series that I’ve been obsessed with for the past few days, but now it is all over and as a reward, I will do an intensive review of two movies that I suspect most of you have seen, and have opinions on.
Friday Classics: Dil Chahta Hai, How Have I Not Written About This Before?
I was putting together all the Aamir reviews yesterday, and suddenly realized, I never reviewed Dil Chahta Hai! How is this possible? It is SUCH an important movie!
Dil Dhadakne Do: Aamir Khan is a Dog
But you didn’t think this post would show up on Aamir Day! But it is, he has more dialogue than anyone else, so why not?
Dil Dhadakne Do: A Family Film
Here’s a random post. There’s a big thought provoking scary hard important post coming tomorrow morning, but I wanted one more nice film discussion post first. And Angie reminded me that I had still not written about this film.
News Round-Up: Abhishek-Dutta Mystery Continues, Sonakshi is Happy, RK Studios is Not Happy, DON 3!!!!!!
Yay! For the first time, actually follow-up news stories! I am getting better about this, checking the news at least once a week so I’m not totally out of the loop.
Luck By Chance Annotated Edition Part 8: The Ending! Friendly Appearance from Shahrukh
And now we are at an end! In a very long complicated section, complete with special guest star (I won’t make you wait, it’s Shahrukh). (full index of Luck By Chance coverage here)
Luck By Chance Annotated Edition Part 7: Karan Appears
Things are getting progressively interesting as the ending comes towards us! Most importantly, Karan appears! The unseen God who has put all of this in action. (full index of Luck By Chance coverage here)
Luck By Chance Annotated Edition Part 6: The Launch of a Star Daughter
Only 2 parts left after this! Now I am kind of sad. This was a nice different way to cover a film. (full index of Luck By Chance coverage here)
Luck By Chance Annotated Edition Part 3: From Circus to Fridge
Part 3! Gonna see if I can manage to get through more than one page of notes in one post. At least a page and a half. I don’t want to get too ambitious. (full listing of Luck By Chance posts here)
Luck by Chance (The Annotated Edition) Part 1: Excel Logo to Mac Mohan Cameo
Like I said in my first review, I got about 5 minutes into this movie and paused to get a pencil and paper. Because there is SO MUCH. Not like so much depth and soul (although there is that too, that’s what my other two reviews covered), but so much data. I know I probably missed at least half of it, but here is what I got from my 5 pages of notes. (Full Luck By Chance Index here)
