Happy Sunday! I already walked the dog, took the bus to the house, bought coffee on the way, walked over, saw my friends’ new couch and got my hairbrush from where I stashed it, took the bus back, walked the dog again, and now I am going to watch a movie with you lovely people. The random extra day of homelessness is just going to FLY by!Continue reading
It’s Jim Sarbh’s birthday week! And also, Vaani Kapoor! Two actors who have been in two DCIB all time favorites. But which should we watch this week?Continue reading
All right, let’s do this! From our own isolated work at home places, we all watch an episode a day, and then come together to talk about it.Continue reading
Blech, that voice over has GOT to go!!!!! There’s a great moment in this episode, very powerful, which is immediately undercut by the stupid stupid voice over. This might have been my favorite episode of the series so far, except the voice over just destroys it. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
I put up a review of episode 1 already, I’m going this show episode by episode because it breaks down tidily into separate stories unlike Humsafar or Sacred Games. This also makes it way WAY easier for me to review, since I can do short little reviews episode by episode instead of trying to binge the whole thing and then review the whole thing.

What a fun show! And part of the fun is that each episode is it’s own distinct storyline, which means I can do fun little mini-reviews of each episode instead of trying to kill myself watching the whole season and doing one review real quick. (full index of Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Well, this was a hard watch! That kind of thoughtless unmeaning hurt that happens all the time every day and there is no way around it. I am so glad I watched this first thing in the morning so I didn’t have to try to sleep with all that unpleasantness in my head! Oh, and it was also a very well-made and acted and filmed and written movie.Continue reading
Totally did not plan to have this movie re-reviewed the same week as Magadheera! But didn’t that all work out nicely?Continue reading
Well, this is a sign! I am excited about two upcoming things, and neither of them are traditional Hindi theatrical releases. Not only that, both of them were tweeted/promoted by mainstream Hindi film people, so the industry is paying more attention outside of Hindi theatrical releases too.Continue reading
I’m back! From an incredibly hot drive to the theater, back to the sanctuary of my nice cool bedroom, with Dog Hazel stretched out panting on the floor. Time to start writing some kind of a review of this thing.
I saw it! Not opening night, but soon enough. Theater was half full, half the audience was talking and the other half was shushing them, very odd dynamic. I’m used to all talking or no one, not this mix and match. Which kind of fit the mix and match I saw within the film.
I say “all”, but really it’s just a subset of the commentators here. But a strong subset. Which includes myself. I can enjoy an action film or a well-made drama, but there is just something about the big swoony romances with songs and impractical plots and lots of chemistry between the leads. And this film definitely delivers!
