I can’t stop myself! I keep looking at Sonam wedding videos! And, thanks to the latest batch, I now have several competing “ships” that I am rooting for. And I am sharing them with you, in the hope of either getting companions on board the SS Relationship, or else getting a solid common sense mind to drag me off.
Well, this is going to be a multi-day thing. I’m exhausted and I’m not even invited. But I do have to do the very important job of judging everyone’s outfits, which is very tiring. Perhaps you all can help me? (oh, and Monday Malayalam is delayed because I had to do this instead. Sorry!)
Moimeme asked me about Ranbir Kapoor and why he is still getting work, and some one else asked me what I thought about Pratalekha’s recent interview and how she struggles to get work. And then October came out promoted on Varun Dhawan’s name primarily, and flopped. And I think I figured out what the issue is, it is the problem of the 3rd film.
This is partly because there are some friends in real life who are asking me to explain what happened, and partly because I feel the need to sort of write it out like a story for myself. And partly because this will be the last Sridevi news type post (probably. Unless something big changes), I don’t want to keep chewing away for ever, I want to sum it up one last time and move on to remembering her life, not her death. (previous as it happened posts here and here and here and here and here and here and here)
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.
