TGIW: A Nice Classy Post to Bring You Into the Holiday….Men Laying Down!!!!

Okay, how can I say this classily?  There is a certain kind of pose which seems to say “yes, climb on top of me and enjoy yourself”.  That is the kind of pose that I am looking for this week. You know, so you can pretend you are kneeling on top of them throwing rose petals or something in a chaste and romantic manner.

Saturday Small Talk: What Are You Doing While I Am Visiting My Sister?

Happy happy Saturday!  I am visiting my sister for a flying visit, arrived super late last night, so don’t expect me to write anything intelligent until quite late in the day.  But that shouldn’t stop you all from talking!

Shahrukh Birthday Month Post: Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham Review, Shahrukh’s Love Defeats Amitabh’s Hate (Again)

Our last Shahrukh Month Review!  So SAD!!!! There is still Jab Harry Met Sejal Day to look forward to on Sunday, but that won’t be a “new” movie to the blog. Oh well, there’s always the much less important holiday seasons of Diwali and Christmas to look forward to once Shahrukh Month is over.

Friday Classics: Lakshya, a Coming of Age War Story

I always forget how good this movie is, and then I watch it again and it is just REALLY REALLY good.  And sometimes I feel like I am the only person who realizes that, it’s not talked about nearly as much as you would expect for a Farhan Akhtar/Hrithik Roshan/Amitabh Bachchan/Boman Irani/Amrish Puri/Om Puri/Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy/Javed Akhtar/Preity Zinta movie.

News Round-Up: Hrithik Will Dance, Salman Will Circus, and Priyanka Will Promote Herself

It was so nice not reporting Priyanka news for years and years.  But now she is back and I can’t escape her.  And I really don’t like it, because it makes me sound a little mean and a lot crazy, but on the other hand, it is what it is and this is the only way to interpret it.  Other stuff is more interesting though, so I can talk lots and lots about that and little little about PC.

News Round-Up: Priyanka and Her Evil Twin Priyanka, Aish and Abhi, KriArj and Fanney Khan, Hrithik and Tiger, Akki and Bebo

This is usually the day I do my box office report, but I went over to BH to get the numbers and ran into a bunch of news stories I thought I should talk about first.  So box office is coming, eventually, but first news for us!

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.

Bonus Wednesday Question: Which Era of Hrithik is the Best Era of Hrithik?

This is inspired by the fanvid post I put up earlier today with a gabillion Hrithik videos, which just reminded me how many different varying shades of Hrithik there are.  It’s a bit like learning to appreciate fine wine, at first it all tastes the same, but as your palate deepens, they become very different from each other.

Silly Sunday: Mini-plots, pick one! Everything from Arjun-Hrithik Rom-Com to Naked SRK

Happy Father’s Day!  I already reposted last year’s post, which was hideously in depth.  And today I am busy giving the church service AND organizing food for coffee hour AND spending time with Dad and Grandpa.  So for new content, one line plot ideas.  Vote for your favorite!  Maybe I will write the whole thing next week.

Silly Sunday: Sexy Films for Hrithik, Star Romance for Anyone

It came up in discussion that Hrithik has one tragic gap in his filmography: not enough straight sexiness!!!!  And, as his impending inevitable sexy horizon comes ever closer (have you see Rakesh?  Not a good sign for middle-aged Duggu!), it is increasingly important that he grabs these chances while he has them.  Also from discussion, why is there no movie about a movie star falling in love with an average girl?  It seems like such an obvious fantasy!

Let’s Make a Match! Arjuns Edition (with bonus Hrithik)

Sorry to those of you who like deep thoughtful posts, my brain is fried and I have no thoughtfulness available too me.  Also, I have to write a church service.  Also do laundry.  It’s a busy week, no time for thought today!  So, join me in total superficiality!

Happy Spring Forward Day! Springy Songs! (The physical movement, not the season)

Nothing interesting in the news today (so desperate that outlets are falling back on the good old reliable Don 3 rumors), no birthdays, I already put up a review, so time to fall back on the oooooold reliable fill in, a theme song post!  But a fun theme this time (I hope), songs with people jumping around!

Starter Kit: Hindi Film Romance Through the Decades

I forgot about this post until reflects on life reminded me of it!  And now I think I will make it an annual tradition, to update and repost it on Valentine’s day.

Valentine’s Day!  Day of love!  And for that reason, a good day for a one of post just about love stories.  The two kinds of them, the socially relevant ones in which the romance is just a jumping off point for a broader social issue, and the fun fun fun ones that just make you smile.

News Round-Up Part 2: Ranveer and YRF, Aanand L Rai and Rajkumar Santoshi, Aditya Chopra and Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham and Release Dates, Sui Dhaaga and Valentine’s Day, Sanjay Dutt and Scandal

News round-up part two!  Which I wrote at the same time as part one, but I wanted to post them separately so you didn’t have to dig through the comments to find the topic you were interested in.  You can comment here on these stories, and on the other post on the other stories.

News Round-Up: Upcoming Movies, and Other Stories

Even more news!  Announcements of upcoming movies primarily.  Which kind of makes sense, we are entering the spring doldrums, so now is the time to start your promotion campaign while nothing exciting is hitting theaters.

Friday Classics: Kaho Na Pyar Hai! The Movie That Makes Everyone Feel Like a Teenage Girl

A side effect of the whole Hrithik-Kangana madness is that it made me think about Kaho Na Pyar Hai.  Because that is tied with Koi Mil Gaya, in my mind, for Peak-Hrithik.  Agneepath is probably his best acting job, or maybe Jodha-Akbar, but this film most perfectly encapsulates his overall appeal.
