Happy Eclipse Songs Post!

Happy Eclipse!  Which I can’t see at all because it is super overcast here!  And which is kind of okay with me, I wasn’t very excited about it in the first place.  I don’t like it when the sun goes away!  And if you feel the same, here are some songs to remind you of the sun.

TGIF: Jab Harry Met Sejal Themed, Men in Ties!

What is it about men in ties?  Maybe it’s because there’s a kind of “I’m a grown up who knows how to do stuff” feel to it.  And then when they get loose, there’s a kind of “I’m about to get naked” feel to it.  And it’s extra special in Indian films because western style suits are only for special occasions.  Or, every single scene in Jab Harry Met Sejal.

Random Fun Photo Post Thanks to Hrithik’s Facebook

Be aware, there is almost no content to this post.  It’s just a funny photo that my friend showed me, and another photo I found for myself as a bonus.  And a third thing that looks like news, but actually isn’t. (if you want content, check out my Jab Harry Met Sejal series)

TGIF: For Easter, Have Some Hot Indian Jesus Pictures!

Happy Good Friday!  I am celebrating by seeing Arjit Singh live tonight (WOOT!!!!).  But I don’t want to totally ignore the massive religious celebration going on all over the world.  So, in honor of Jesus, let’s look at some hot men.  Who kind of look like Jesus (as presented in American pop culture).

Indian TV Commercials Post: Best Couples!

Understand that this is only a small subset of ads.  Since I am tragically cut off from Indian satellite television, I only know of ones that youtube randomly suggests for me, not the whole array of every ad out there.  But of the ones I have found, here are the sexiest!

Happy Birthday Hrithik! 26 Reasons I love you

Happy 43rd Birthday Hrithik!  This is an UPDATED post from last year, last year I did 15 reasons for the number of years since you were launched, this year I am doing 26 for your age when you were launched.  And maybe this year I can resist posting that photo of you as a teenager with the Khans. (Spoiler: Most of my reasons are dances)

Happy Hrithik’s Birthday! Let’s Talk About the Movie with His Greatest Performance, AGNEEPATH!

I can never say that title without the big yelling-it-out-into-the-world defiance, AG-NEE-PATH!!!!  Anyhoo, I think it’s Hrithik’s greatest performance, and the greatest movie he has been in (well, except for Bang Bang, my heart’s choice).  And what makes it really impressive is that he (and the filmmakers) were actually able to improve on an Amitabh movie, one of the Amitabhiest of them.

Happy Navy Day! Time for Boat Songs!!!

Huh.  There really aren’t that many navy-based movies in India.  At least compared to America.  Although Navy-movies is kind of an odd genre, maybe it’s America that’s the weird one for having so many.  On the other hand, plenty of songs with boats!  Because, similar to songs with cars, it’s a nice way to get the hero and heroine alone.

Mujshe Dosti Karoge: Hrithik Manic is So Much Better Than Hrithik Stupid!

I just watched this movie again, with someone who hadn’t seen it before, and it confirmed once again that Hrithik in the second half is really kind of dangerously angry.  And that I find him much more appealing when dangerously angry than I do when just sweet and kind of dumb!

Kaabil Trailer: Isn’t it Kind of a Waste for Hrithik to be Married to a Blind Woman?

Kaabil trailer!  I would say “hey!  What’s with all the trailers this week?”  But I know what’s with all the trailers, they are coming out a couple of days before the Diwale releases, so there will be buzz and excitement to see them on the big screen attached to the big Diwale releases.

Fathers in Public and Private

So interesting what is considered “good” public image for fathers versus what they might do in private.  And how, sometimes, they just don’t care about public image.  And sometimes they have to care.  And sometimes they pretend they don’t, but really do, which bothers me.

Happy Dahi Handi! (I know I already put up a Janmashtami post, but I don’t care)

I already put up a post with babies to celebrate Krishna’s birthday, because Krishna was a baby.  (I don’t know why American culture doesn’t make that simple connection and make Christmas more about babies instead of trees).  But, at least in Bombay, there is an added twist to the celebration with the “Dahi Handi”.  Which is also a fabulous excuse for really fun song numbers in Bombay-based movies.

Mohenjo Daro Spoiler Review: I Really Wish It Had Just Been a Romance

In my earlier non-Spoiler review, I mentioned that Mohenjo felt like 3 good movies smashed together into one, a romance, a political drama, and a big action movie.  Now, after I’ve had time to let the movie percolate in the back of my mind, I think the romance is the best of the 3.  Not by much, they are all strong, but the romance was just the slightest bit better filled in and more emotionally resonant.

Mohenjo Daro Review (No Spoilers): 3 Movies Shoved Together, But 3 really Good Movies!

I liked Mohenjo Daro better than Rustom!  Surprise!  I went in all set to be bored, since Rustom got the better reviews and the better box office, and then I ended up really like Mohenjo Daro!  Much better than Rustom, which felt kind of old hat once you removed the period clothes and titillating connection to “real life”.
