PC did an interview following the RRR Oscar win and associated fanfare, and promoting her new TV series, in which she gave her thoughts on the Indian film industry and so on. It’s a podcast and I can’t seem to find a full transcript anywhere, and I also can’t bring myself to listen to it, but I did see a few excerpts. Mostly I’m thinking “why is it that I find myself exhausted at the thought of doing more research into this? What is causing this fatigue?”Continue reading

Discussion Post: What Celebrity Do You Somehow Not Like as a Person? Not Their Politics or Performances, Just the Personality as you Sense It?
I was soooooooooooo happy yesterday to discover that everyone else also had that creepy bad-liberal vibe from Kamal Haasan.

Repost: Intro to 7 Actresses And the Phases of Their Career
This is an out of date post from a couple years ago, but only out of date in that the “most recent” film choices are no longer most recent. And, like, Anushka wasn’t married yet. Otherwise it is still a great post for giving you an idea of the pattern most actresses follow in their careers and how they play out.Continue reading

2010 Week! Pyaar Impossible, Uday Chopra Being Surprisingly Cute with Great Songs
Shoot, I was gonna be lazy and repost a review, and then I discovered I never actually reviewed this film. Oh well, I can still be kind of lazy, at least I don’t have to rewatch it, I’ve seen it enough to review it fine without a refresher.Continue reading

Sunday ReRun/Women Directors Week: Dil Dhadakne Do! Reema and Zoya Give Us a Mother, a Wife, and a Maiden
Interesting, this film gives us 3 separate female leads, and each in a different phase of female life. And the one who is in the most typical filmi phase, Anushka as the “maiden”, actually gets the least amount of screentime.Continue reading
Shahrukh Summer: Don 1 and Don 2! The Review I Forgot I Have Already Written!
I put up my post asking what Shahrukh movie to review that I hadn’t reviewed yet and I included Don 1 and 2. And then thought, “wait, that doesn’t seem right.” And, it isn’t! I have in fact already reviewed them, I just completely forgot about it.Continue reading

News Round-Up: PC is Better than Yoko, Malaika is Not Getting Married, and Rohit Shetty Might Remake Satte Pe Satte (which of these stories is true? Or none of them?)
I’m ignoring the story about Kalank raising ticket prices because it includes super depressing comments like “movies are for rich people”. Instead, fun stories! PC with her usual ridiculous PR, Malaika and the wedding happy-happy, and a remake I am genuinely excited about.Continue reading

This sounds really egotistical, but I have the most amazing hair you will ever see in your life. Like I said, egotistical. But actually, it’s just saying a fact. It’s amazing.

Anyway, I am getting my semi-annual cut tonight and it seemed like a good theme for a TGIF post, women with awesome hair.Continue reading
