Savyasachi Review (SPOILERS): The Right Hand Doesn’t Know What the Left is Doing, Plotwise

Nice little Telugu movie, nothing special, I just watched it for Maddy.  If you might be interested in seeing it, definitely read the No Spoilers review and skip this one (the movie works a lot better if you don’t know what is happening next).  But if you won’t have a chance to see it for whatever reason, you can read this instead.

Savyasachi Review (No Spoilers): Naga Chaitanya is Cute but Madhavan is Cuter!

What a fun movie to watch on a lazy Saturday!  I spent most of the day in bed, and then zipped over to the movie theater (missing the first ten minutes of the movie), and then zipped back home and now I get to write a fun little review of a fun little movie.

Kannathil Muthamittal, My Favorite Ratnam Movie

This film in particular apparently went to a bunch of international film festivals?  The end result being, it is easily available from my library, and on a bunch of streaming websites.  I mean, it’s also a really really good movie, but the reason I picked it to watch next was based purely on convenience.

Mani Ratnam Remake! Alai Payuthey/Saathiya Combined Review

I finally watched Alai Payuthey!  After putting it off for years and years and years and years and years.  Because I love Saathiya, and I didn’t want to risk having it spoiled.  But turns out, they are two distinctly different movies!  Although still similar to Saathiya, so this is going to be kind of a combined review.  I talked about some of these differences a little already when I reported on the OK Jaanu/OK Kanmani remake thing.

TGIF 2: Additional Chocolate Heroes!!!! The Special Limited Edition High Demand Options

Sorry!  Work was NOT FUN today, so I didn’t get quite as complete and extensive as I should have in my original Chocolate heroes post.  Which just gives me an excuse for an additional post, with the extra special ones, the imported handcrafted special fillings ones (I may have to dig my emergency chocolate box out of the freezer tonight).

Breathe Amazon Series Final 2 Episodes! (SPOILERS): We End With Hope and a Hero

And we are at an end!  No more charming-but-murderous Maddy, no more troubled-but-reliable Amit, no more police jeeps driving through the streets of Bombay.  Well, unless you want to watch one of the many many movies that involve police jeeps driving through the streets of Bombay.  I recommend Talaash! (part 1 here, part 2 here, part 3 here) Continue reading

TGIT: Thank You For The Retweets, Have a Maddy-Tovino-Unni Post

This is a very very very specific post.  Our nice commentator/friend Angie got Maddy to read and retweet my Breathe reviews, so in return I shall give her a nice theme TGIT post.  That theme being “here are all the men you like in a variety of outfits and poses”.  And then on tomorrow I will do a “normal” TGIF post that more than one reader will enjoy.

Breathe Recap/Review (SPOILERS): Episodes 5 and 6, Opposing Forces Find their Places

Happy Thursday!  Sometime around midnight tonight (I haven’t figured out the schedule exactly yet) the last episode of Breathe will come out.  I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a second series at some point, so the story may not necessarily be over, but at least the first part will be resolved. (part 1 of my coverage here and part 2 here)

Tuesday Tamil: Breathe Review/Recap, First 2 Episodes (SPOILERS), Dark Interconnected Crime Drama Comes to India

I finally watched it!  Partly for Maddy, partly for my beloved Amit Sadh (if you like him in this, WATCH RUNNING SHAADI!).  They were both good.  And I am putting it up as a “Tuesday Tamil”, even though it is in Hindi, because really we are all watching if for Maddy mostly, and he is a Tamil industry guy. (part 2 here)

Silly Sunday: Stories for Maddy!

Angie in the comments, my dedicated Madhavan corespondent, said that Maddy has been talking about how he wants to do another love story but no one is offering him a good script.  That is so sad!!!!  Surely we, as a blog community, can come up with something for him.  Or many somethings.

TGIF: All Southern!!!!! Men in Mundus/Lungis

I completely forgot our southerners last week, and I am doing an all-Hindi “Best of 2017” contest, so I really feel like I need to make up for it.  And the best way I can is an Entire Post of Southern Gentleman.  In their native garb.

TGIF Christmas Bonus: Men in Beards! Like Santa!

(A special treat, a second updated and reposted TGIF today!  For Christmas!) 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.

Silly Sunday: The Christmas Story, in a Hindi Movie Trilogy

I’m excited about this!  In spitballing back and forth in the comments on last week’s post (which was more about Christmas as a festival of lights and social experience and sexy holiday romance), it was suggested that I should just do the whole story.  And I think I can!  If I break it into 3 bits.

TGIF: Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Something I am Very Thankful for, Men in Blue Jeans!

I was all nice and daughterly and granddaughterly yesterday, now it’s time to be completely inappropriate and put up my TGIF post!  And as a special treat, I am posting it early in the day.  It should still keep you entertained all day, since I think this is my longest TGIF post ever.  And it also includes a complex and objective rating system, that you can feel free to disagree with, modify, or use for your own ratings in the comments

Silly Sunday Post: Akshay Finally Gets the Girl, Mrs. Robinson in India, 101 Dalmations Men’s Chest Hair

3 random disconnected posts, one that is just to assuage my guilt for always being mean to Akshay, the other that came up in the comments from Karthik (congrats Karthik!  Your first fanfic suggestion!), and the 3rd was something I said as a joke in the TGIF post but now I kind of want to do it for real.

TGIF: Boys and Bikes

This is a very round about post.  I asked my friend (who requested that I link back to her instagram as her credit for always helping with these posts, so here it is) what I should do for my Friday post, as I ask her every Friday.  And her response was “Travel!” because she is going out of town today.  Only there aren’t really a lot of super great travel photos, so I ended up narrowing it down to “travel on motorcycles”.

TGIF: Labor Day Themed! Let’s Look At Some Working Men

Happy Labor Day weekend!  Which I always mix up with Memorial Day weekend.  It’s America’s fault, everywhere else in the world celebrates Labor Day on May 1st, easy to remember.  But noooooooooo, we can’t be like everyone else, we have to invent a random holiday with an impossible to remember date.  Anyway, since it is our random holiday, let us celebrate Labor! That is, “What is the hottest job for each actor?” You can give your own opinions in the comments.

Friday Classics: Happy Independence Day! Rang De Basanti

Oh boy, I really do not want to write this post!  But it was a special request, and it really feels like something I HAVE to do the Friday before Independence Day.  But I refuse to watch this movie one more time (ha!) because it makes me way way too sad.  So be aware, this will all be based on memories from like 4 years ago, the last time I felt masochistic enough to watch it. (I’ve written on this film before, and promised then that it wouldn’t be the last post. You can read it here)
