Shahrukh Birthday Countdown, Duplicate! The Strangely Endearing Ugly Child

This is NOT a good movie. Sorry to everyone (including one of my closest friends) who loves it, but facts are facts. On the other hand, there are more people than you would expect who love it! Something about this bad bad movie is just strangely lovable.

Shahrukh Birthday Countdown: Darr! His First For Real Classic Film

I certainly enjoy Deewana and Chamatkar and Baazigar, but they aren’t like high quality deep classic things. Darr though, Darr is CLASSIC. A brilliant consideration of women’s powerlessness in the face of men who want to “rescue” her or “protect” her.

Silly Sunday: Love Triangles! Pick Your Ending for These Romantic Tripods I Have Built! Shahrukh-Juhi-Aamir, Deepika-Ranveer-Anushka, ARK-Parineeti-Sid M

Still watching Hart of Dixie which does really good love triangles, and it has inspired me to try and see what I can come up with as potential Indian film triangles. Not easy ones where it’s a choice between love and duty, but ones where there are two viable “love” options.

Ramesh Sippy Week: Seeta Aur Geeta Recasting/Rewriting Ideas for Modern Times! (Plus Bonus Andaz with DipVeer!)

Seeta Aur Geeta is the only Sippy film that can really be remade. Remaking Sholay is obviously impossible, and the other films fall into that fuzzy area where they are fun for what they are, and all the little character beats and stuff, but if you try to recreate it, it would all fly away and nothing special would be left. Like, I love Zamaana-Deewana, but remove the orgasm song, and Anupam Kher’s drag scene, and all you’ve got is a really weird plot about boring young lovers.

Silly Sunday FanFic: BollywoodNewbie and HolyMuffinSallie’s FanFic for Hrithik and Anil and Sanya!

I can only take credit for kind of pulling all of this together, not for the ideas, that is all BollywoodNewbie/Alisa and HolyMuffinSallie. But it is so good, I feel the need to edit it together and expand and put it up on the blog.

TGIF: Pick Your Favorite Juhi Chawla Anarkali!

Hey, a real TGIF! In honor of Juhi week, lets look at lots and lots of pictures. Pictures are fun, pictures are easy, pictures are something I can do between many many work phone calls (4 co-workers are at a conference, one is home sick, one is home moving house, and one is here with me trying to handle the entire office on our own. Oh, and Albie Dog is here, trying to be helpful).

Happy Juhi Week! Every Film Where You Would Have Made a Better Lead Actress

This is a silly silly post. But it’s cold, and work is INSANE today. Let’s talk about all the movies where we really wish Juhi could have been the lead actress instead of the lead actress we actually got. Or at least would enjoy seeing her version as an alternative.

Happy Juhi Day! Aaina, Where She Once Again Steals a Man from Amrita Singh

It makes no sense!  I can barely get over the idea that Amrita Singh and Juhi Chawla would be fighting over Jackie Shroff (Even I have to admit that he does look good in a mustache), but why would Jackie Shroff ever be interested in Amrita Singh if he could get Juhi Chawla?  She is so clearly superior!
