News Round-Up: Imraan Has a New “Job”, Disha Patani is Folded into ANOTHER Priyanka Story, Kangana’s Manikarnika Sounds Like a Disaster

I have 20 minutes before the kids get here, so I am going to write a news report post real quick, and then dig a croquet set out of the attic so they can hit each other with mallets.  Or possibly actually play croquet, but that seems unlikely.

News Round-Up: Priyanka Plays PR, Anubhav Sinha is my Hero, Abbas-Mustan Go Korean, BH Fails in Both Ethics and Accuracy, and Madhavan Plays a Santa Scientist

I don’t know if I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today or what, but the way BollywoodHungama is so shamelessly acting as a PR machine is really bugging me today.  So I’m gonna report their “stories” but I also can’t help but call out their shame.

Trailers again! Vishwaroop 2, Loveratri, and Zero Teaser

More trailers!  I tell you, Eid is exhausting.  Plus there’ve been fireworks on my street the past couple of nights, which is also exhausting.  But it’s all worth it, because THANK GOODNESS Zero is looking a little better.

News Round-Up: Old Feuds, Old Loves, New Movie Theaters

This is a suuuuuuuuper fast news report, because I am still on vacation and I want to spend time with my sister, not blog.  But I also feel it’s not fair to all of you, who read me so faithfully, not to provide content!  And anyway, there were a couple of interesting stories today.

News Round-Up: Desi Boyz Fall Out, Sanju and Manisha Come Together, Rajini and Kamal Face Off, Saif and Sara Go to Court, and Akshay Stands Alone

Boy, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these!  Rest assured, I have been reading the headlines and stuff all along, I just haven’t been writing about them.

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.

Sonam Wedding Final Update: 2am, Shahrukh and Salman are Both Here, Sonam’s in Her Comfy Clothes, Let’s Get This Party STARTED!!!!!

Those noble souls with cell phone cameras and twitter accounts, they are the real heroes!  Making us feel like we are there partying with everyone else.  Only, less hot and drunk and vaguely tired.

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?
