Yaaaaay, Kabhi Kabhie! Shashi Kapoor being AWESOME, Raakhee being pretty good, everyone else being shades of terrible culminating in truly terrible Amitabh. The snark should be strong in us.Continue reading
Kabhi Kabhi! Yaaaaaaaay! SUCH A GREAT MOVIE! And so fun to watch with other people.Continue reading
Quite the grab bag of options I have come up with this week! I’m not wedded to any of them, feel free to make suggestions. This is a movie for Deepti Naval’s birthday, a movie for Raakhee, and a movie for Saif.Continue reading
Oh boy, a Thought Post! These are the posts where I talk a bit too much to call it a “Discussion Post”, but a bit too little to call it a “101”. It’s just a bunch of thoughts, and then you can leapfrog off of it.Continue reading
This is a movie with a lot of layers, consideration of parent and child relationships, and changing times, and the generation gap. But it is also about sex, and what makes good sex and bad sex, and why that matters in a relationship.Continue reading
Happy Kabhi Kabhi day! This is my old review, with one paragraph added, but I think I have to do a second review later today specifically about what sex means in this movie because I think Yashji had a very particular reason for showing different interactions between the 5 couples.Continue reading
I was going to do just straight sex scene sequences versus each other, but then I decided to go broader.Continue reading
What an interesting death to wake up to. Someone who was very very old and revered but also a little bit forgotten. And now I, and everyone else, am inspired to learn about and write about him.Continue reading
This is related to the Kabhi Kabhi post I just put up in which we had a discussion of what is up with that very memorable “first night” song.Continue reading
Happy Shashi’s birthday!!!! What a wonderful day, and what a wonderful week, a Shashi review every day! Starting with Kabhi Kabhi, a multi-starrer where Shashi is easily the best man on screen.Continue reading
This is a post I did last year, and I just pulled it from the archives to repost it and was looking up the first day of winter this year. Do you know it’s the same day EVERY YEAR???? Somehow this blows my mind. I don’t know why. Maybe I need a refresher on how calendars work.
I just posted a thing about summery songs, and one of the commentators reminded me of “Abhi Abhi” from Socha Na Tha. Which then reminded me about Socha Na Tha as a whole. I looooooooove Socha Na Tha! And I feel like, as Imtiaz Ali gets further and further from his roots, his first big break film is getting forgotten. And it shouldn’t be! Because I think it is better than what he is doing now. And it says something much more interesting about Indian society than all the Tamasha‘s and Rockstar‘s and Highway‘s put together.
