Sonam Wedding Epilogue! Start Your ‘Ships!

I can’t stop myself!  I keep looking at Sonam wedding videos!  And, thanks to the latest batch, I now have several competing “ships” that I am rooting for.  And I am sharing them with you, in the hope of either getting companions on board the SS Relationship, or else getting a solid common sense mind to drag me off.

Discussion Post (News Snippet): National Award Walkout

I don’t want to talk about this news story in depth just yet, because it feels like there is going to be more to it that hasn’t come out yet and I am waiting for that.  But I also don’t want to miss out on your thoughts and opinions, and possible knowledge of what I am missing, so I will put this up for us to use for discussion and then a “real” post possibly in couple of days when it has played out more.

Upcoming Movies! Harsh is Back, so is Madhuri, and Badshah, and MY NEMESIS!!!!!!

So many trailers today!  And also, good buzz for 102 Not Out.  Shoot!  I was thinking about taking a week off from watching movies, or else going regional instead.  Oh well, I probably would have wanted to see it anyway just for Rishi and Amitji’s reunion.

National Film Awards Report: I Didn’t Win the Best Book

I didn’t even know they HAD a  “Best Book on Cinema” category, and now it is ALL I WANT IN THE WORLD.  I am sure it is limited to Indian citizens, but I will CHANGE CITIZENSHIP (at least temporarily) if they will give me this prize.  I so clearly deserve it!  My book is brilliant!

Raazi Trailer! What Do We All Think?

Well, this is a fascinating trailer!  2018 continues to look like a much better year for films than 2017.  The old dinosaurs, Stars and Directors, are stepping back and new faces are getting a chance to shine.  This film is a perfect match of a new actor and a new creative team behind her.  Which came together to create a new story.

News Round-Up: More Rape Stories, Bad Luck Hits Film Sets, Copyright Confusion

Happy Monday!  I haven’t done a news post in a while, but I have been reading the news.  Rest assured that all the various big stories have been processed in my brain, I just choose not to address all of them.  These few here are the ones I find interesting.

Me Too, Indian Style-Jeetendra Accused of Rape

Have you noticed that Bollywoodhungama always puts the really boring stories to the front with stuff like “You Won’t Believe!” or “Wow!” and then buries the really big ones?  Well, Jeetendra’s rape accusation is that times a thousand.  This has got to be the biggest story in the industry today, and everyone one is reporting it, but also burying it a little.  Not just Bollywoodhungama, every website.  I mean, they are reporting it, that’s good, but it’s not getting the kind of extra special obsessive treatment that Irrfan’s announcement-that-isn’t-really-an-announcement is getting.

Shammi Aunty: Twitter and Funeral Report Post Combined

This was fast!  Although, it seems like they are often fast, the funeral happening shortly after the death.  And it all happened while I was asleep, of course.  So here I am writing about her death, and the funeral is already over.  And the twitter messages too.

Sridevi Update: Funeral May Be Delayed Even Longer

This story is just going to drag on and on, I can feel it.  And if I am already getting tired of it (not mourning Sridevi, just the logistical updates), can you imagine how exhausted her family must be?  Waiting and waiting and waiting and putting all plans on hold over and over again?

Sridevi Update: Everyone Pulls Together

This is the second part of the story that always happens.  After the twitter messages, the personal visits start, and the stories of people comforting or helping directly.  And then tomorrow (probably) will be the final story, the funeral and wake.  At which we will see what public statements are made by who attends and how.  Well, not quite the final story.  It doesn’t end with the funeral.  These bonds we are seeing now aren’t just for show, they will be followed up by serious commitments and lifelong support in Sridevi’s memory for the people she left behind.

News Round-Up: Industrial Stories! Money Money Money Money

Oh boy!  My favorite juicy scandalous fascinating addictive news items!  That’s right, INSIDE INDUSTRY BUSINESS STORIES!  Let’s get into contracts and star rates and all kinds of fun stuff like that!  No joke, I really do find these stories way way way more fun to talk about than, like Anushka-Virat wedding news.  Maybe you do to!  And even if you don’t, you can just not read this!  That works too.
