I think I chose to talk mostly about Preity’s character in this review, which is interesting enough of a conversation to have. There is just so much in this film!

Karan Johar Coda: What Would Happen in Karan Johar Movies if Women Were Brave Enough to Say What They Think?

You thought we were done with Karan Johar, didn’t you? But no! I have one more thing to say that occurred to me while we were doing our Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham watch. And this thing will also, once again, give me a chance to rewrite the endings of Karan Johar movies which is my favorite thing of course.

Karan Johar and Parents: Is It All About Love, or Is It All About Making Them Happy at the Expense of Yourself?

This is more of a thought experiment post. I want to try looking at all of Karan’s films through the lens of parenting, specifically BAD parenting, and see what we come up with.

To Celebrate the End of Shahrukh Month, Shahrukh Movies Re-Written Without Shahrukh (Yes, a romance for Rani and Kajol in KKHH)

Oh boy, a totally indulgent post! I love writing fanfic, and I am having a lazy happy evening with my dog. Don’t care if none of you read this (well, I care a little bit. It makes me really happy when you comment on my fanfic, especially with your own ideas), this will just be happy for ME.

Okay, how many Teacher’s Days ARE there?!?!?  I already did the American/International Teacher’s Day, and Guru Purnima (click the links if you feel the need to review former teacher songs), and now there’s ANOTHER Teacher’s Day?  Just for India?  Thank goodness there are so many teacher songs!

Quick Discussion Post: Multi-starrers, how do we rank the heroes as potential husbands? Amar Akbar Anthony to Kabhi Alveda Na Kehna

It’s Monday, I feel the need for a distraction from work.  And anonymous and I have just been discussing an important issue that I feel deserves the full attention of us all: Is Jimmy Shergill or Jugal Hansraj better in Mohabbatein?  And, on the other end, is Uday Chopra or Amitabh worse?  This made me realize that we really need to hash this out for multiple films.

Silly Sunday: Karan Johar Sequels, Part 2!!!! Kal Ho Na Ho Na Ho, Kabhi Alveda Na Kehna Na Kehna, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Again, and Student of the Decade

I got very excited by this idea.  A few of these are reposts, but the really long ones are original, written just for today.  Which is why I had to do two parts, because this is much much much too long.

Friday Classics: For Preity’s Birthday Week, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Her Most Interesting Role

Happy Friday!  I think this can legitimately be considered a classic, don’t you?  Not a perfect movie, but one that is also a little bit better and a little more interesting, and a little more memorable, than the run of the mill films.  And anyway, it’s Preity’s birthday week.

Happy 15 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday!!!! 15 Best Characters He Has Played

Just to be clear, this is not best performances.  “Performances” would mean he brought something extra to the role.  Which of course he did, but here I want to focus on characters, characters as written in the script, who would have been interesting no matter who played them.
