Oh boy! A review for a movie that isn’t very good, so I can write it quickly! I hope. I tend to get a bit lost and write too much even about the less good movies.Continue reading
Happy Friday! No new movie today (because of Bharat) which should give us loads of time to discuss this older movie.Continue reading
This movie is so frustrating! So much good, and so much ANGRY MAKING. Not as bad as Jab Tak Hain Jaan, but not as good as it could/should be. Ugh, Yashji! Why you gotta disappoint me this way?Continue reading
This was one of many movies from my YRF list earlier this week that it was requested I review. I picked it because, well, I can remember it well enough to review without needing a rewatch. And it certainly doesn’t deserve a rewatch.Continue reading
I really love this movie. It was one of the early films I saw, one of the first movies I watched where I was told “this is an actual good movie”. And it is! It is an actual good movie! Not just a fun romance with something deep down below, but deep straight through.Continue reading
Finally watched it! After having heard about it for years and years and years and years (the soundtrack is everywhere). And I’m kind of glad I waited, because this way I got to come at it having already seen a bunch more Gautham Menon movies and having a bit more of an idea of what he does.Continue reading
After reviewing a bunch of fun light movies, I am going to go super dark all of a sudden. Brace yourself!Continue reading
This isn’t really a “classic”, but it sure is fun! And I am feeling like I want more “fun” in my life. Also, I was on the phone with my sister for 2 hours last night and I don’t have time to review a good movie (nothing terrible, we just simulwatched a bad movie over the phone because her husband is out of town)Continue reading
I hope a lot of you watched this movie. It is worth watching, and it isn’t immediately intriguing. The filming and acting style is oddly stagey and direct, and the topic is hardly appealing. And yet, it has a power that no other film quite does.Continue reading
Such a disturbing movie. Like, not sure if I can go to sleep tonight kind of disturbing. Very disturbing. But also very high quality.Continue reading
This is a movie so powerful, and so frustrating, that I both can’t bring myself to rewatch it for this review, and don’t need to because I remember it so well. I hope some of you managed to watch it recently so you can join in the comments with your own impressions!Continue reading
I’m just going to say it, Deewar is the best written film in the history of Hindi cinema. I did a mini-review of it related to the release of Raees, I am going to expand on that mini-review and try to give it the detailed discussion it deserves.Continue reading
I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this movie before! It’s so good, and so different from really anything else out there. Thoughtful, complex, and with a hero who is more about quiet thinking than quick action.Continue reading
Happy Sunday! And let me remind you of one of the all time greatest Hindi films, and definitely the best exploration of how “true love” is bad and selfish.Continue reading
This is a movie that came out right when I was first getting in to Indian film, and I really liked it. It hasn’t held up super well as the years have gone by, but it is still fun and the central performances are still great. Even if the ending is a wee bit silly.Continue reading
Thank you filmilibrarian for recommending this movie! It is a total delight! Because it was back in a time when couples were allowed to just be in love and get married without dragging the whole thing out and turning into a tragedy.Continue reading
Well, this was a hard watch! That kind of thoughtless unmeaning hurt that happens all the time every day and there is no way around it. I am so glad I watched this first thing in the morning so I didn’t have to try to sleep with all that unpleasantness in my head! Oh, and it was also a very well-made and acted and filmed and written movie.Continue reading
I really like this movie. I know it isn’t one of the super super best Mukherjee films, but I don’t care, it makes me happy!Continue reading
Well, this movie is just as good as I remembered! Okay, middle bit is kind of confusing and boring, but it only lasts about 20 minutes and then we can move on.Continue reading
I always remembered this as a really good movie, but I hadn’t watched it straight through in a few years and thought maybe I was mis-remembering. No, it really is a really good movie!Continue reading
Huh! This was an even better movie than I remembered! Managed to balance real feeling relationships and specific characters with broad comedy.
Delhi 6 is on Netflix now, and a bunch of you were just talking about it, so I thought “why not review it?”
Yaaaay, another Shahrukh review! See how I am sneaking them in under the guise of “Friday Classics” even now that Shahrukh Month is over? Oh, and plus Juhi in a really nice role, for her birthday. Although Aaina is a better Juhi movie, remember to watch it for this Sunday if at all possible! It’s also a wonderful Amrita Singh movie, if this film makes you want more of her.
Happy Friday! Finally got to the end of the week! Phew. And as a reward, a completely fun and silly movie and a completely fun and silly review.
I think it’s one of those Big movies that I was avoiding, ones that are really good, and I also really like and I want to be careful to explain why I like them in a way that makes you like them too, not just appreciate their quality.
