What has happened to the trialer makers of Hindi film???? Have they all been kidnapped and their incompetent teenage children are trying to take over? Was there some horrible brain weapon that wiped their memories? Or did they go on strike and instead Hindi filmmakers have to use slave labor from some country that doesn’t even speak Hindi?Continue reading
I was gonna write about Imtiaz, but then I realized I really had to write about two directos. One for Imtiaz and Ranbir, one for Imtiaz and anyone else.Continue reading
Blech! I don’t like this movie. If you like this movie, DON’T READ THIS REVIEW. Why would you do that to yourself? Go about your life and continue to be happy and loving. But if you also hate this movie, come over here by me and we can hate it together.Continue reading
Isn’t that nice and specific? These are not the best directors, or even a fair cross-section of directors, they are just Directors I Like. And you can’t judge me for any of them, even Puri Jugannadh, because there is no accounting for taste.Continue reading
I wrote this review a long long time ago, and it isn’t as good as the film deserves. So I did quite a bit of rewriting before reposting it, fun for those of you who remember the original post! There’s still something new for you!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
Oh boy! My favorite juicy scandalous fascinating addictive news items! That’s right, INSIDE INDUSTRY BUSINESS STORIES! Let’s get into contracts and star rates and all kinds of fun stuff like that! No joke, I really do find these stories way way way more fun to talk about than, like Anushka-Virat wedding news. Maybe you do to! And even if you don’t, you can just not read this! That works too.
Well this is an interesting batch of news in terms of changing industrial forces! Managers, story rights, all kinds of things that didn’t used to exist and may not necessarily result in a different or superior end product.
I love Imtiaz Ali romances, because he does something really interesting with changing what we think of as “romance”. I sometimes hate Imtiaz Ali romances because it feels like he gets caught up in what he finds interesting and loses track of the basic definition of romance. You know, that it usually involves two people, not just one.
No subtitles though. Which, following my theory from yesterday, means that Shahrukh used to love me and was telling me through subtitling his videos. But now no longer loves me and is breaking up with me through NOT subtitling his videos. WHY SHAHRUKH???? WHY???? I’ll change for you! I’ll do whatever you ask! Just take me back!
Well, apparently the promotion train is moving at an express pace, and I will need to put up one of these posts every day for the next month and a half (last one here). I guess I am okay with that. Anyway, New Teaser! More importantly, Subtitles!!! Most importantly, Shahrukh loves me and wants me to be happy and is showing it through subtitles on his trailers! I should take this as a sign of his undying devotion to me and go be a Gaurav outside Mannat, right?
I turn on twitter this morning, and boom! Romance everywhere! Bigger version of the Shahrukh poster (still no title), new Half-Girlfriend song, and people are still tweeting about the last Raabta song.
Long time readers may have noticed that my news round-up posts have been less common lately. I am sooooooooo busy writing up Hindi Film 101 and answering Monday questions and all my other new-ish features that I haven’t had as much time for news. But today there were two big things that I just can’t ignore! Both of which I learned about through twitter (I do still follow @iamsrk and @karanjohar and all the other big newsmakers of the industry)
This is all from twitter, basically. Sometimes, that’s all you need! The stars give you your stories directly.
