Full disclosure, I love this movie. In all its cheesy ridiculous glory. This is the most early-2000s or all early-2000s films. And one of my all time favorite Bad Hrithik performances. It’s not even so-bad-it’s-good, it is a level higher, so-bad-it-is-more-entertaining-than-if-it-were-good. Can you imagine this movie if Hrithik’s role had been played straight and serious? Blech! BOR-ING!Continue reading
Huh. All major YRF films. YRF SHOULD HIRE ME TO HEAD A “PERIOD REMAKES” DIVISION!!!!!! These would all be so much better and use their historical period in far more interesting ways than Thugs of Hindostan did.
Happy Sunday! I put up a Big Big Post yesterday, so today let’s have some fun! This started as a discussion about (once again) the problems with Jab Tak Hain Jaan, which lead to a consideration of whether it might have made more sense if it had been set further in the past. Which lead me to thinking of an alternative (better) version set in the 40s-60s (different from my previous alternate versions). And then to other films that could have been better as period pieces. Huh. All major YRF films. YRF SHOULD HIRE ME TO HEAD A “PERIOD REMAKES” DIVISION!!!!!!
I just watched this movie again, with someone who hadn’t seen it before, and it confirmed once again that Hrithik in the second half is really kind of dangerously angry. And that I find him much more appealing when dangerously angry than I do when just sweet and kind of dumb!
Is it still Friendship Day in India? Am I getting in just under the wire or did I miss it? Oh well, either way I want to do a quick post on it with a few of my favorite songs about friendship.
