This idea came up in an exchange between me and Genevieve a few weeks back and I think it is really good and fun. Who wouldn’t like to see SRK as a rich doofus turned handyman?Continue reading

I put in that Govinda one just to make Popka happy. But now she has to tell us who would be the Govinda jodi person, because I don’t know.Continue reading

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.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown: Yes Boss! Shahrukh and Juhi, in Full Flower
There came a time in the late 90s when Shahrukh hit this string of light comedies that had a lot of darkness at the center. Odd films that flopped when they released but are fascinating rewatches.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown, Ram-Jaane! Juhi and Shahrukh, Always the Best
This is a reposted review from Juhi Week, so it’s mostly about how great they are as a pair. An excellent reason to review the film!Continue reading
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.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Month, Movie 3! Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, Juhi Arrives
Woo, first Shahrukh-Juhi movie! And first Shahrukh Aziz Mirza movie! They got along okay but didn’t really really like each other in this film. It was one of those friendships that built slowly, not almost instantly like Shahrukh-Kajol.Continue reading
Quarantine Questions, All SRK Edition
Oh boy! Get ready to have your SRK juices flowing, as I ask a series of specific questions about quarantining with him.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
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.Continue reading

Friday Classics: Hum Hain Rahe Pyar Ki, Playing House with Juhi and Aamir
My God is this a cute movie! It’s the kind of movie that you just want to pinch it’s cheeks and toss it in the air and dress in novelty clothing. SO CUTE!Continue reading
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).Continue reading
Juhi and Shahrukh, the Onscreen Version of Shahrukh’s Marriage
So I was rewatching bits of Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and considering how specific the Juhi-Shahrukh interactions are, especially from Shahrukh’s side, and I had a thought. And now I will look at their filmography and see if the thought I thought holds up.Continue reading
Juhi Week: Ram-Jaane, Where Juhi Was Shahrukh’s Match
I fastforwarded through this movie to remind myself what it was like, and my goodness the Boring Dude is way more boring than I remembered! Juhi makes terrible romantic decisions.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
