Starter Kit: Actresses, Part 3, Soha to Lisa

I’m continuing to crank through the small time actresses, the ones who only need a few movies to fully understand their careers.  Because it’s a lot easier than trying to deal with the male stars and their longer careers, or the handful of super successful actresses (sorry Rani!  I’ll get to you someday!) (last small time actress post here)

Silly Sunday: TV Show Remakes!!!!

This is just because I have been watching Cheers and now I can’t get the idea of a remake out of my head.  So I had to dig up a few more TV show options as well, just to round out the post.  Feel free to give me suggestions in the comments for more I could use if I missed your favorite!  Especially since my TV taste trends towards the classic.

Golmaal Again Review (SPOILERS): Better Than Secret Superstar

What a fun movie!  Sure, not all the jokes landed for me, but a fair number of them did.  And the cast was clearly having a great time.  And most of all, the filmmakers knew what they were doing!  I could relax and let go and be aware that I was in capable hands.  And to talk about that, I need to get into SPOILERS.  Which kind of matter for this movie, so if you think you might see it in theaters, maybe read the No Spoilers review instead.

Golmaal Again Review (No Spoilers): Spookily Good

Two movie weekend!  Secret Superstar Friday night, Golmaal Saturday afternoon.  And it was So Much Fun!!!!  Not a great movie, not by any means, but a very fun silly movie.  I liked it, the two young men sitting behind me liked it, the big family sitting in front of me liked it, and the little boy of the family really really liked it.

Friday New Classic Daawat-E-Ishq! The Tragedy of the Father of the Bride

I would say “why didn’t anyone tell me how good this movie is?”, but then there have been people screaming at me in the comments to watch it for months now, so I can’t really say that.  Anyway, it’s good!  Really good!  Running Shaadi good (my gold standard for overlooked brilliant little rom-coms).

Upcoming Rom-Com Trailers! Half-Girlfriend and Mere Pyaari Bindu

Yay, more rom-coms!  2016 was the year of serious patriotic historical dramas, but 2017 is looking decidedly more romantic.  Romantic and dramatic, none of that lightweight stuff like Befikre.  Which means I am watching these trailers going “wait, is something terrible going to happen or is this just a humorous misunderstanding?”

I Saw Varun Dhawan Live!!!!!

I saw Varun Dhawan!!!  And other people were there too.  I mean, other people in the audience, it wasn’t just me and Varun alone in a room.  But also, there were other people in the show.  Only, I don’t really care about any of them.  Which is really the big news, that Varun was so clearly superior to everyone else in the Dream Team show.

Dishoom: Whole Thing! SPOILER Review Mixed With Summary

It took me 7 parts to finish Sultan, but I think I can knock out Dishoom in one.  Not much to the movie, really.  And if you just want a quick review with no spoilers, you can check out my review from yesterday.
