A happy post! To balance the serious one from earlier today. And also because I looooooooooooove Yash and Roohi. Most serious and concerned babies ever!
Finally, some interesting news stories! I’ve been checking for days, and there hasn’t been anything that I consider juicy (no, rumors of possible conflict, and discussion of something someone said that might be offensive are not juicy). But today, lots of actual industrial news! So happy!
Normally I try to mix these trailer posts up a little, adding in a few to compare. But right now, there is NOTHING. Because stupid Padmavat messed up the release schedule and there is this weird gap. All the movies that got moved to February last minute, their trailers came out months ago when they were supposed to release. And all the movies that might otherwise be release in February have scuttled forward to March and their trailers aren’t out yet. But this one trailer does look fun!
The actual awards list went up earlier, but we all know that doesn’t matter nearly as much as what people wore! Not even joking, in terms of people tuning in for the show, it’s all about who showed up and how big they went. And in terms of how seriously people are taking the awards, and their careers in Hindi film, it is also about how big they went (remember in 2016 Priyanka didn’t even come?)
Merry Christmas again! I thought I should take a break from family time to give you all a quick update on important Christmas news items!
Salman is everywhere today! Sometimes actually mentioned, sometimes just implied. I guess that’s fair, it is his Birthday Week after all.
That’s all, just BABIES! Adira turned 1 today and her party hosted all the cutest new members of the film fraternity. Let’s go to the pictures!
There’s nothing I find really exciting in the news, but there’s a lot of little things we can talk about. Mostly casting announcements.
Happy Monday! Time to see what everyone’s been up to over the weekend. Not as exciting as some Mondays, but there are a few mildly interesting stories out there.
Happy 2 Days to Shahrukh’s birthday! Yesterday was his 3 favorite people in his life, today is my 2 favorite people in his life.
Happy Saturday! I am cooking cooking cooking (new stove is hear and I have 5 pumpkins!), and also running back and forth to the movie theater, so no time for a real deep post. But at least I can throw up a news post!
Extra news post this week, because there was some interesting stuff, and also I felt like we needed something to talk about besides Shahrukh.
Karan, Shahrukh, and other people all tweeted the trailer at the same time late last night. Which is interesting on its own. But also, the trailer is kind of good!
And now we reach the era that the majority of us are actually aware of! Yaaaaay! Which is also why this is the shortest post, because I didn’t feel the need to give nearly as much background. Feel free to take off in the comments with your on details for these films, if you want.
I’m back! This is a completely ridiculous and non-practical series, by the way. JHMS, I got the best views EVER (even beat Bahubali). This, I’m getting like a few dozen on each post. But on the other hand, it is my few dozen most loyal commentators/readers, so just for you, I will continue to put them up. Well, and also I really liked the film.

Oh Pride! The happiest weekend of the year in terms of fanfic/silly content. The saddest weekend of the year in terms of not having loud drunk people sit next to me on the train. At least this year I have no reason to leave the house (my church lemonade stand/marching group can get along without me!), so I can just huddle up indoors and work on my epic Pride themed fanfic. I’m going to try to hit all the letters, L and G and B and T and Q and maybe H. If Indian film isn’t going to serve that audience, it is up to me to fill in the gap! Anyway, a great TGIF post topic, I think we can all agree.
45 is a nice solid age! And a Karan is at a nice solid point in his life, both a critical and business success, with his new babies. Entering his new year with things looking good! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
I love Karan. Love love love. Both as an artist and a public figure. But I have to admit, he has a problem with endings. Every film either drags on too long or ends too soon. There’s always a feeling of “wait, that’s all there is?” at the end of it. And so, as my birthday gift in advance to him, I am going to fix all that! (real birthday post will go up in a couple days on the actual birthday)
