Niki suggested that instead of trying to cover everything in KKHH in one huge post, I break it down into certain themes or elements. I like that! And the first theme that I find interesting is tied up in everyone’s favorite scene, the Gazebo moment.Continue reading
Huh! Two teaser trailers today and I’m not sure what to think about either of them. Luckily, I have you all to help me decide what to think!Continue reading
Happy Hrithik Week! 5 reposted reviews, 2 new ones, I’m excited! And we are starting with the one link between Hrithik Week and Shahrukh Summer, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.Continue reading
More news stories! Fun fun! And all of these are about the mechanics of shooting a movie, so interesting!Continue reading
We were just talking about against the grain readings and I realized that I had Lover Come Back stored on my TV, one of the biggest against the grain movies of Hollywood. And then I watched it and realized it hits that sweet spot of romance with social commentary all baked in that I like. Plus ten gabillion moments of “we all know that Rock Hudson is gay and are having a super fun time playing with the audience not knowing that Rock Hudson is gay”.Continue reading
Kind of a slow news day. I decided to ignore the stories that are about people talking about other people talking about things, because I hate those stories, and just focus on the ones that are actual things.Continue reading
We’ve been talking back and forth a lot lately about the issues with Karan’s public image and how it does not reflect who he is outside of the limelight. At least, I don’t think so. And I wanted to go through the actual facts of his career, not how he presents himself but what he has accomplished behind closed doors, so we can take a look at Karan the Artist and Karan the Businessman. Most of this post is simply listing out and counting categories of films from Dharma productions.Continue reading
Two little stories, which are both important enough to merit discussion. But not, like, a lot of discussion. From me that is. You can discuss all you want, I’m just saying this is going to be a short post.Continue reading
Huh. Interesting collection of stories for my usual Monday post. More beating up on Karan than I would have expected.Continue reading
Anonymous just mentioned in a comment that Karan should hire the same PR professionals that Shahrukh is using, and that got me thinking about what I would do, were I to be hired by Karan.Continue reading
This is not a “oh boy, these are the next stars to launch!” post. This is a 101 post, it’s just the basic names and general ages of the children of celebrities, so when I (or other media outlets) casually refer to “Hrehaan” or “Nyssa”, you will know who we mean.Continue reading
I quite enjoyed everyone’s responses to yesterday’s post asking what films were reviewed unfairly (and please keep adding on there if you remember more or this post reminds you of something!). Everyone gave delightful varied answers that went beyond saying “this film was good and they said it was bad” and instead into how exactly the film was misinterpreted and dismissed. Now, let’s do the same for artists! There are some actors and directors and composers that always get loads of critical acclaim and may not deserve it, and others that never get noticed and really should.Continue reading
This is fun, I should be able to write this whole thing without doing additional research. On the other hand, this is also a topic that many of you in the comments know more about than I do. So feel free to correct me, or expand, as needed.Continue reading
I am continuing my attempt to not let the weather get me down (I think I may need to pay gobs of money for last minute tickets to Florida or something. February in Chicago is REALLY REALLY HARD). So, here are news items that are completely unimportant and yet make me smile! Smile along with me!Continue reading
Once again, I am running late. But this wasn’t a super interesting episode, so hopefully it won’t take me long to write it up.Continue reading
I’m trying to catch up on Koffee. It’s hard, because you know how detailed I like to be in my discussions! And this is probably going to be another detailed one. But then, it was also a really interesting episode. I can always hope the others are dull and then it will be easy to write about them.Continue reading
Finally I am writing this post! It took long enough, I’m sorry. The Koffee posts are some of the most time consuming to write, and what with being super sick, I kept running out of energy to sit upright and be awake.Continue reading
What an odd combo. Two actors who never co-starred, aren’t known to be friends, and aren’t even related. And yeah, it’s pretty boring. Best part of the episode is the Bahubali episode teaser at the end.Continue reading
Oh my, that was a tearjerker! And not in a forced obvious way, but just because it’s so sad, and so happy at the same time. And I am so glad Karan eased them through it and now the first interview is done and they have it behind them.
Happy happy Saturday! I am visiting my sister for a flying visit, arrived super late last night, so don’t expect me to write anything intelligent until quite late in the day. But that shouldn’t stop you all from talking!
Huh! One of the best episodes so far, and I would not have expected that! Just the right mood and the right chemistry I guess, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
Well, that was boring. It’s been a boring season in general, but this one was particularly energyless. Aamir really needs someone with him, I loved him last year with the two actresses, and his Kiran episode is adorable, but this was mostly just bleh.
This is inspired largely by the first two episodes of this season of Koffee with Karan, both of which put together two stars (Deepika and Alia and Ranveer and Akshay) who never co-starred together and aren’t known as best friends, and yet had surprising connections.
I love Koffee season. And this was another great episode, I didn’t think Ranveer and Akshay would work well (and there were a few draggy parts), but they turned out to have great chemistry!
I love you us.hotstar.com!!!!!! I think I may have been able to watch this even before the India broadcast? Anyway, get a hotstar subscription, all you people reading this! It’s worth it!
