Well, we have a song that openly imitates every other club song ever, and a trailer that openly imitates every space movie ever. Hurrah for Indian ingeniuity (I’m grumpy this morning).Continue reading
What a lovely thing to wake up to! And now I get to share it with you all. Most important thing to know, SUBTITLES! Even on the little teaser, even just as it is released. I am now in love with these producers.Read more
I’m sleeeeeeeeeeeeeepy. Was up until 1am last night writing Bharat reviews. And now it is really hard to get my brain to work. So I will do things that require no thought, and might also give me a shot of imaginary caffeine (no real caffeine today, which is also causing sleepies and headache and general bad mood). Let’s imagine all these hot men are offering me coffee!Continue reading
Is that title clear? I feel like it is a genre that we are all aware of, but maybe it is just me and my sister and Angie in the comments. Doesn’t have to be longingly and lustfully, but also doesn’t NOT have to be longingly and lustfully.Continue reading
Two little stories, which are both important enough to merit discussion. But not, like, a lot of discussion. From me that is. You can discuss all you want, I’m just saying this is going to be a short post.Continue reading
My friend who is in library school has hit an academic stumbling block, so to encourage her I thought I should do a theme post. Sexy Librarians!Continue reading
This is a very silly idea, but sometimes I like silly ideas. In honor of Audubon Day (Audubon being a famous bird portrait painter), here are a bunch of Indian movie stars with Birds.Continue reading
Like I said with Part 1, Mirchi was the first true Telugu film I watched, and I was super excited and wrote a very very long email to moviemavengal/Pardesi about it. And then a few years ago I took that email and turned it into a very very long review. Part 1 went up a bit ago, here is Part 2.Continue reading
The origin of this post is a very very VERY long email that I sent moviemavengal/Pardesi after I first watched this movie. So be aware that it is my reaction to my first regular real Telugu film ever, and I was very excitedContinue reading
I wanted to do stars dressed as bunny rabbits, but there are shockingly few images of that. So instead I will settle for stars dropped around the grass like little Easter eggs. Can you find them all????Continue reading
I posted this late Wednesday night, but it got very very few views. I am hoping that is because people just didn’t see the post, not because they hate it. I have TV again thanks to youtube, which means I am seeing Overboard on a constant repeat, the way TV tends to play it. And I am thinking, once again, how easy it would be to fix this and make it the totally perfect plot. And so long as I am doing that, why not set it in India?Continue reading

This seems like a thing that should exist, right? Romances that revolve around all the confusion of Valentine’s Day in India. And instead of getting sucked into just one story, I am going to quickly outline 14 different stories!Continue reading
Thank you Filmilibrarian for this term/idea! By “fancy tax collector pants”, I mean the pants that Ajay wore in Raid, which were the standard office worker slacks, only very very very VERY well fitted.Continue reading
This is a repeat from August for Independence Day, but it is a really really good post, and I checked my views for the original and they weren’t THAT high. So I am repeating!Continue reading
I know, this is late, but it’s Christmas Eve, is anyone really waiting for this post to go up?Continue reading
If all goes as planned, I just finished watching Zero and now am driving back to my sister’s place, and the review will go up sometime later today. In the meantime, have a TGIF post!Continue reading
I tried really really hard to come up with good imaginative theme this week. And then I gave up and decided “Green! Like Christmas!” (disclaimer: green turns out to be a really tricky shade! Some of these photos looked green on my home computer and not on my work one. After spending some time squinting, I just gave up and accepted that color can be subjective)
It’s the annual (and sometimes other random times in the year) treat!!!!! Men in Beards! For Christmas! Like SANTA!!! Yes, I know it isn’t Christmas yet, but I just barely managed to finish my Delhi 6 review at work and I still have to do blechy end of month work stuff today, so you are going to have to be happy with a TGIF rerun (although there’s a couple new photos). If you want something new, check out Fawad’s Birthday Post.
This was VERY VERY difficult to research!!!! Not as much information as I would wish on relationship status of the famous. I decided not to include people who were married, or engaged, or in that all-but-engaged level like Rajkummar or Varun. But just dating someone like Ranbir and Alia, fair game! And I know I probably missed people (Arjun Rampal now divorced, Sushmita Sen never married, Tabu, etc). I am posting this earlier than the usual TGIF just so we all have time to make full careful considerations and decisions.
Happy Veterans Day! Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and there weren’t nearly as many celebrations as I expected. I guess 100 years from now everything we are going through will seem very small and out of date too. That’s kind of comforting. Anyway, enough of that, hot guys in uniform!
I may be failing at my “only have coffee three times a week and then the caffeine doesn’t get to you” system. I am sitting in my office on a no-caffeine day dreaming of coffee. Maybe I should get a hot chocolate instead and see if I can trick myself.
I finally watched it! What a delightfully silly inconsequential movie. There is no real “reason” to watch it, besides it just making you smile. Oh, and yes, as I was told, Prabhas’ rough voice saying “darling” is indeed addictive and delightful.
You know how it is wrong to objectify people and think of them as only their outer surface and blah blah? Put a pin in that for a second and try to forget it, we are going to vote on who has the best body between Shahrukh and Prabhas! Top to bottom, piece by piece.
Well, another “teaser” is out. I’m not even sure it is long enough to qualify as a teaser. I’m not sure what exactly this is. Oh well, Happy Birthday Prabhas and all that, I guess they felt like they should get him something even if they had to kind of scrunge around in the back of the closet to throw it together.
