Happy Friendship Day! Isn’t this auspicious? Just in time for me to finish my Kuch Kuch Hota Hai week.Continue reading
Last Kuch Kuch post! Sad for those of you who love Kuch Kuch, happy for those of you who are sick of it.Continue reading
Time to talk characters! I could easily write a post on everyone in this film from Jonny Lever to the star counting kid. But I’m gonna limit myself to the main three, Tina yesterday, Rahul today, and Anjali as the grand finale.Continue reading
This is so strange, I swear that when I was in college every single girl I knew was obsessed with KKHH, like the way we are with JHMS now. What has happened in the years since that it doesn’t inspire discussion? Anyway, I am still obsessed with it and can’t stop writing. Which is part of the reason I avoided writing about it because I knew I would get really detailed past the point of interest for anyone else.Continue reading
This is going to be a lot of personal stuff, get ready for that! But also it might help you understand why, for the particular moment in time and the particular generation I am and all the rest, Kuch Kuch is still so important.Continue reading
I can’t believe how few people have commented on yesterday’s Kuch Kuch post! Oh well, they make me happy, so I will keep going. And this one I find really fun!Continue reading
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
This is going to read differently from my normal posts. It’s a paper I wrote years ago, that was published in a book and a journal. So it is very academic sounding and stuff, the original even has footnotes (you can read it here). It is also very clear and certain in its style, the way academic writing is supposed to be. That doesn’t mean I think it is perfect and that you can’t disagree with it just as much as with any of the other stuff I write with all the “I think”s and “Possibly”s and “You could see this as”s. Mostly I just thought it was an interesting thing to look back on today as 377 is once again dead. Also, you get to see how I managed to sneak the phrase “molten beefcake” into an academic journal.
I think I might have some strange attraction to old men? People keep trying to sell me on Mahesh and Allu Arjun and even Naga Chaitanya, and yet I find myself drawn to old man Nagarjuna. He’s just so much more cool and confident than those younger boys! Although at least this movie is 15 years old, so back when he was only 42, which is almost kind of age appropriate for me! If you squint a bit and assume a husband should be a lot older than a wife.
What fun Karan Johar’s birthday week is! So many wonderful options for theme posts. This is a very very very long one. So long, that I had to split it in two parts, and it’s still really really long. Be warned!
I did a lot of work on this one, so why not reuse it? Alternate endings for every Karan movie, K2H2, K3G, ADHM, SOTY, MNIK, KANK, KHNH.
46! Pretty soon he is going to have to acknowledge that he is straight up middle-aged, not just “mature”. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Oops, I forgot to put up a post yesterday! Oh well, no one is reading these anyway. But I still feel bad, so I will put up two today. First, Salman in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai!
This is a post that has been burbling around in my brain for a while, and I thought I might as well just post it. Plus, it’s been a while since I put up one of those posts that gets everyone talking and angry with me/aggressively agreeing with me.
I know I already did a silly one yesterday, but I’ve got another looooooooong series of fanfics coming tomorrow, and I am worn out! So another easy silly one today. Outfits! Although I am going to try to actually rank them, so that will give you something fun to argue about in the comments.
I was tempted to do one long post for one of these, but that would break the list pattern. Plus, be harder to write. So some will be longer, some will be shorter, but there will be a full 25. And that will give you all a lot to talk about in the comments.
Hello blog people! I have nothing to say to you today. Normally Saturday is when I put up reviews of the movie I saw the night before, but my friend Dina was busy this week, so I didn’t see anything. And now I have to run around doing a million things so there isn’t really any time for me to write a full blog post on something else. Well, not yet. Maybe tonight. In the meantime, you can have what is now becoming traditional, the weekend post that just describes my day and maybe shows you a song you haven’t seen in a while.
I just spent 4 hours straight on work phone calls, I am tired, I don’t want to write a think-y post, I just want to be happy and indulgent! If you are in a similar state, I am here for you with sexy videos.
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)
Happy Tuesday! Another Nagarjuna movie this week. I think I might have some strange attraction to old men? People keep trying to sell me on Mahesh and Allu Arjun and even Naga Chaitanya, and yet I find myself drawn to old man Nagarjuna. He’s just so much more cool and confident than those younger boys! Although at least this movie is 15 years old, so back when he was only 42, which is almost kind of age appropriate for me! If you squint a bit and assume a husband should be a lot older than a wife.
I know a lot of my readers are reading this, and I wanted a place for us all to discuss. I also know a lot of my readers don’t want to bother but might want a preview of what it says. And I think I have found a way to satisfy both of you! Without feeling like I am breaking some kind of plagiarism rule or skipping important parts.
Last week I had the GENIUS realization that Dear Zindagi is clearly a sequel to Josh, in which Shahrukh’s bad-boy biker had gone through intensive therapy to resolve his anger issues, and ended up becoming a therapist himself. From some of the comments, it sounds like I am not the only person who plays around with the idea of what would be the best possible sequel-continuation of a certain story. Feel free to share your own ideas in the comments, and read the post if you want to know mine!
