I am so glad I remembered this film! It is so silly and light, but also very very pleasant. And the whole driver of the plot is that our heroine really really wants to finish med school and our hero does everything to support that!Continue reading

Historic Films Week: Urumi! Watch Prithviraj Be Hot in Period Clothes!
Blah blah, history, classism, colonialisms inevitable poisoning of the existing social structure. Forget all that, let’s talk about what’s REALLY important: is Prithviraj hot in this or WHAT?Continue reading
Happy Birthday Allu Arjun! Happy, Taking a Backseat to Genelia D’Souza
I watched Happy! Because I wanted Bommarillu and I got confused. But this one was still cute. Is it possible there is a whole genre of “Genelia D’Suoza rom-coms”? Just because she has such a young perky face, she ends up in cute young perky love stories?Continue reading
TGIF: Wedding Outfits!!!! Pick Your Favorites
Yaaaay! A super fun one inspired by Sonam’s Party of the Century wedding earlier this week. Wedding dresses! Combining both the full formal wedding sari, and the fun reception outfits, so we get two sets of dresses to gaze at.
Friday Classics: Jaane Tu….Ya Jaane Na, The Magic of that Moment When You Don’t Quite Know Yet, But You Kind of Do
We were just talking about this in the comments yesterday, how exciting it was to see Imraan when he was first launched. Which got me thinking about this movie in general, and how good it was, and how strange it is that no one involved in this promising first film really lived up to their promise. At least, not yet. There’s always hope!
Ready (Telugu): I Think I Might Like The Salman Version Better?
It feels wrong to say that! The Hindi remake is always supposed to be the watered down less good version of the non-Hindi original. But watching this movie, I found myself missing the slight changes the put in to make it work better for the Hindi industry.
Happy: Half a Cute Love Story, Half a Lesson About the Struggle of Professional Women
I watched Happy! Because I wanted Bommarillu and I got confused. But this one was still cute. Is it possible there is a whole genre of “Genelia D’Suoza rom-coms”? Just because she has such a young perky face, she ends up in cute young perky love stories?
Boys: Don’t Make Me Be a Teenager in Love in India!!!
Attakathi, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, Premam, and now this, they all have very similar content, the kind of content I don’t really see in American film, or even in Hindi films that much. The struggles and pain of being in love, and not being of an age for it. It isn’t something American movies deal with, maybe because it isn’t an issue in the same way in America? At least, not any more.
Force: The Thing I Thought Would Make Me Sad Made Me Sad, But a Bunch of Other Stuff Made Me Happy!!!
Force 2 is coming out, which finally got me to go back and watch the first one. I remember there was a lot of buzz about a “whole other kind of John Abraham movie”, and I remember really liking the songs. And then I remember learning about the plot and deciding that I didn’t want to see it after all.
Bad News and Baby News
Lots of not-so-happy news items today, but also a baby! So if you slog through the less happy parts of the post, I will reward you with a baby at the end!
Combined Post: Happy Birthday Madhavan and Happy Baby Ritiesh and Genelia!!!
Okay, so I almost missed Maddy’s birthday this year, but the nice thing is, birthdays come every year, so I can put up a bigger and better post next year. And Ritiesh and Genelia’s new little baby also came along today (that’s his tiny big brother in the header image), so I’m going to make Maddy share with them.
