Happy Wednesday! I am doing a week at the family lake house. Which is nice on it’s own, but is particularly nice right now because I am SURROUNDED BY BOXES. And the lake house has nice solid furniture and things that have been immovably in place for the past 100 years.Continue reading
Well, this is a very impractical choice. It will only work if you all swear to watch on Einthusan and nowhere else. But you say you will, so fine! We’ll try it!Continue reading
Have I already fanficed/recast these movies? Eh, don’t care, everything is horrible and will never get better so it doesn’t matter.Continue reading
You know how every Friday I would go see the new release with my friend Dina? Our new routine is to watch a movie together with Netflix Party every Friday. And we have a long list of weird old movies we have been dying to show each other. So, sorry Internet People! The new movie reviews that are going to be going up, are a lot of weird WEIRD old things. And this one is very weird, I encourage you to read the spoiler section even if you don’t want to watch the movie just to see how WEIRD it is.Continue reading
This is a big beautiful serious film that magically captures in a bubble all these actors from different film places. And yet, it doesn’t have an evil villain’s lair with an alligator pit, so I can’t love it as much as Shaan. I respect it, but I don’t love it.Continue reading
Well, I can see why people (some of them members of the DCIB community…) might prefer this film to Sholay. Sholay is brilliant and tragic and makes you think. But this movie has a helicopter and an alligator pit. The choice is clear.Continue reading
This is such a good interesting movie! I watched it years ago and yet I still remember it well enough to write a review, which is a sign of a very good movie.Continue reading
This is a movie with a lot of layers, consideration of parent and child relationships, and changing times, and the generation gap. But it is also about sex, and what makes good sex and bad sex, and why that matters in a relationship.Continue reading
Happy Kabhi Kabhi day! This is my old review, with one paragraph added, but I think I have to do a second review later today specifically about what sex means in this movie because I think Yashji had a very particular reason for showing different interactions between the 5 couples.Continue reading
Second to last one! And an important one. Another super successful director, and super good and all of that.Continue reading
This is SUCH a fun movie! And, Shashi wears an army officer’s uniform almost the entire time. Also, I know I am a day late on this review, but it kind of works well that I am writing it on Holi, because it fits with the kind of fun silly and a little flirty feel of the holiday.Continue reading
Happy Day Before Mother’s Day! I was going to write a fanfic of mother stories for tomorrow that aren’t the usual ones, and then I realized a lot of them had already been in films and I had just forgotten. So let’s celebrate those unusual mothers!
Happy Friday! Raakhee’s daughter Meghna has a big movie coming out tonight, so I thought it might be fun to go back and look at Raakhee’s biggest role. Or at least, her favorite role.
My favorite Yashji and Amitji’s film! Not the best one, that I know, but my personal favorite.
Inspired by Dilwale, I am going through all previous SRKajol films in exhaustive detail! Karan-Arjun turns out to not be that Kajol-y, but it makes up for it by being super Salman-y. And super Amrish Puri-y. And super 90s-y.
(also, SPOILER, in this section Amrish Puri wears a Lavender Jacket! Just like Salman in the header image!)
