Watched it! With an Eid audience, which was super fun. We were very under dressed, but we got to admire everyone else’s nice clothes.
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!
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!
I’m trying to put up tiny little news posts every day even when I don’t have much to say and there isn’t much news. So enjoy these two small non-news news items!
Lots of little announcements today! A few that I have many thoughts about, and a few I don’t care about that much but are still worth repeating.
The mere fact of Salman being in this film isn’t a spoiler, right? That’s been so heavily promoted that you can’t escape it? The exact manner of his appearance has not been promoted, but I’ll tell you that. The rest of the plot, definitely spoilers. Yes, even if you have seen the original. (review of the original Judwaa here and no spoiler review of Judwaa 2 here)
Thank you Aamir! Both for releasing a song timed so I can watch it before leaving for work, and for telling me in advance what time you would be releasing it so I could plan around that! Of course, I still had to write the actual post, but I can do that anywhere. Oh, and thank you Dhawans for giving us such fun songs! Twice!
HA! I WAS RIGHT!!! I rule all!!!! I am SO HAPPY!!!!! The twist that I hoped was the twist was the twist, not the other twist that could have been the twist. And I’m happy not just because I am clearly a GENIUS, but because the twist I hoped was the twist is so much better than the other twist would have been. (no spoilers review here) But you shouldn’t know what the twist is! Because it is SO MUCH more enjoyable going in blind, and this movie is SO GOOD. This is a definite “don’t spoil yourself if there is any chance at all you will be able to see this movie” kind of movie.
Okay, let me throw some titles out there for you: Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Desperado. Johnny Gaddar. Burn After Reading. Dishoom. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. Bang Bang. Get Shorty. Jhankar Beats. Now, are you smiling? Are you happy? Are you remembering good times? Or are you rolling your eyes because these are all stupid worthless fluff films? If you are one of the first people, this is the film for you (and also, we should be friends). If you are one of the second people, this is not the film for you (and we can still be friends, but maybe should only watch classic movies together not new stuff) (spoilers review here)
This was an interesting episode! Mostly because of the challenge it posed to Karan, how is he going to get the audience interested in these two people that we just don’t really care about that much? It’s the same problem he had with Parineeti and Aditya Roy Kapoor, but I think he handled it better this time.
