Mirzya Review: Yep, This is the Legend of Mirzya-Sahiban All Right!

WARNING!  This is a freakishly long review!!!!  It’s a combination of the no spoiler and spoiler reviews I originally posted, and also I got very excited about the spoiler review and it was already super long even before I combined the two.  So if you loved loved loved this movie, enjoy!  And if you just love over-analysis, enjoy!  And if neither of those things are true, skip!

Monday Morning Questions Post: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Day after PC Got Married?

Well, the new Mr. and Mrs. Jonas have now complete their first night of wedding bliss.  There’s an image to wake you up in the morning!  Maybe with a strange sense of mystery and confusion, maybe with a shudder of horror, but certainly with a little boost of energy to get you going.

Soothing Songs Post to Cool Us All Down

Hello!  Two comments sections got mildly heated this morning (well, heated for this website where everything is generally at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, so going up to even 45 feels hot), so I want to put up a nice soothing post to calm us all down.  Mostly calm me down, because I hate replying to/reading semi-heated comments!  And also it’s Monday morning and my office is maybe the busiest it has been in 2 months.

The Difference Between a Rising Star and a New Star

It’s like a little “before and after” picture for stardom!  Two news stories, one about Varun Dhawan, established young hero with a booming career, and one about Harshvardhan Kapoor, struggling to make it with his big break film about to release.  Both of them are making very savvy choices for where they are at the moment, but they are in very different places.

I may have mentioned this a few dozen times before, but Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are my all time favorite composers.  They have been since I first heard the Lakshya album when I was 19.  And they have a new album out!!!!  Mirzya full songs are available on Saavn, which presumably means they are available on itunes, spotify, and all the other websites the kids these days use.
