I’m doing it, I’m reviewing that Indian movie that isn’t technically an Indian movie! Which means I am moving outside my area of expertise and can’t give the same level of analysis and context and stuff as usual. Or not the same way as usual?Continue reading
All around good performances in this movie, especially Hrithik. But Naseeruddin is something special, giving us a whole character in just a few minutes of screentime.Continue reading
Happy Monday! I spent the weekend in bed, but then there was a lot of rain last night, and now the world is much less sickness inducing hot and heavy. So I am ready to think and be smart and original and stuff again!Continue reading
Follow up to the “girl crush” post! By the way, these posts are getting more traffic than anything else I am putting up (why does no one want to play Antakshari???) so if you have more general ideas for questions, lay them on me!Continue reading
The reverse of the morning’s discussion post! Who are the people you have a crush on purely because their personality is so awesome even if you don’t like their looks?Continue reading
Popka Superstar claims that Jackie is not stomach turning when naked. I claim that he is. Now, for a fair and objective decision if this is ageism or Jackie-ism, I am going to list out the other actors of Indian film of the same age so we can compare bodies.Continue reading
I finally watched it! And it was sad, as expected, but also mesmerizing in a way I didn’t anticipate. Such a careful world that is created.Continue reading
I left work early on Friday and just came home and spent the weekend watching TCM. So many fun obscure movies that we could remake!Continue reading
I absolutely love this movie and I can’t believe it isn’t talked about more. There’s like 5 classic Madhuri dance numbers, Naseeruddin Shah plays a double role, and Aruna Irani is a witch. How is this not the most popular Madhuri movie ever????Continue reading
Mother’s Day week, obviously I was inspired to watch Masoom. One of the greatest explorations of what it means to be a mother of all time. You can run from it, but it will always catch you.
Asmita just alerted me in the comments that Tom Alter has passed away. Which immediately brought up his face in my head. He has been in sooooooo many movies. And he did such a good job in them! (If you are interested in seeing a recent performance, he was in M Cream which is now on Netflix)
Wicked witches, evil uncles, twins, love potions, Madhuri Dixit, horses, fairy tale kingdoms, Danny Denzongpa, bungee cord fight scenes, geese, have I said anything bad so far? No! There is nothing bad in this movie! It’s all goodness, goodness so rich that maybe it was hard for people to stomach, and thus its massive flop at the box office on release. And, I was surprised to learn from the comments on my sexy songs post, not something that the readers here might even be aware of.
Finally! A juicy story involving family connections and possible repercussions through out the industry! I mean, most likely it will all blow over in a couple of days, but at least it is exciting while it lasts!
It’s Naseerji’s birthday! How wonderful! His career is so long and so impressive, I don’t think I can possibly hope to do justice to it in one post. So I am going to do the best I can and if I miss something, just mention it in the comments and maybe I will put it in for next years post! Anyway, here are 26 reasons for now, for the age he was in his first movie.
I watched Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro! FINALLY! After years and years of people telling me I should. Of course, I didn’t have a copy with subtitles available to me until just a year ago, but that’s still 12 months when I could have watched Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, and I did not.
