This is an interesting movie. Because it is both a sports movie and a true story, which means we know everything about it already. But at the same time, we don’t, because we don’t know what particular angle the filmmaker is going to choose to look at to show us this story. So, I leave it up to you. You already know the details of the plot, the trailer spelled it out. If you want the tone and message of the film to surprise you, don’t read this review, read this one. If you don’t care, do read this review.
Thanks to those of you who donated this month, I was able to rent a car and drive to the movie theater and see Gold, yaaaay! And now I get to review it.
I know I know, lots of little posts today and only one substantive one. Sorry! Some days are just like that. But at least it gives me a chance to catch up on trailers.
I am making an exception and putting up two 101 posts in one day! Because I want to finish off the Kapoors all nice and tidy on a Thursday, so I can start fresh with somebody else next week. Speaking off, there will be a poll at the end of this entry for you to decide who you want to read about next. (also, after some nagging and requests, I have set up a menu area for Hindi Film 101, you can see them all here)
I am sure if I wanted to google “sexy Santa” I could find it. But I don’t want to do that. So instead, I am going to limit myself to one Santa-like element, and look for beards. Sexy men with beards.
I mentioned in my SPOILER review, how this is a very very female story, both in content and style. Sure, the narrative is all about one woman’s journey, based on emotions and relationships and all that “girly” stuff. But it is also told in a very female way, more about what is unsaid than what is said, through body language and intuition and so on. Which starts in the very first series of shots.
I somehow missed this one. Maybe nobody tweeted it? Hardly seems worth posting, seeing as the actual movie is coming out shortly. But Shahrukh is so cute! I just have to share!
I checked twitter this morning, and was rewarded with wonderful news! And yet another sign that Shahrukh really does care about me!
