Friday Classics: Badal! For Amrish Puri’s Birthday and Bobby in Race 3

Happy Friday!  I’m feeling lazy after my very very very very long post on PC and SRK yesterday, so I am going to throw up a short post on a bad movie.  My favorite kind of lazy post to write!  And if you want to be a lazy reader, I highly recommend watching all the song videos instead of reading, because this movie has really GREAT songs.  And a stupid plot.

Female Bonding Songs, Inspired by “Veere” from Veere Di Wedding

This post is also because I am looking for a nice light post to put up to cheer myself up because it has now been raining here for 30 hours.  It was nice yesterday, when I could huddle in bed and watch the rain, but it’s not the same now that I am at work and have to shiver in my office watching the rain.

Sonam Wedding Part 2: The Big Day! Amitabh is There

More photos!  And Ranveer finally makes an appearance.  Question, how horrible is it for Dips to be in America at the Met Gala while her boyfriend’s cousin is getting married?  Is that like an acceptable thing for a girlfriend to do, pick a work event over a family wedding?  If the wedding is just your boyfriend’s cousin?

Hichki Review (No SPOILERS): A Very Safe Movie

I’ll be putting up a separate SPOILERS review, but there really isn’t much to worry about spoiling.  We’ve all seen this kind of movie before, we know what it’s going to be like and what will happen.  So, you can read this review, and then see the movie, and then read the SPOILERS review, or you can just read them both and then decide if you want to watch it.

Talaash: A Very Strange Love Triangle and a Wonderful Picture of a Marriage

Welcome to the beginning of Aamir Day!  No real reason, I just want to give him his own index just like Shahrukh and Hrithik and Salman, and now’s as good a time as any.  I’ll be re-posting his reviews as I dig them out, and then ending by posting a nice Index for him.  Also, a good time for me to finally get around to giving Talaash the post it deserves.

Tuesday Classics: Bunty Aur Babli, Abhishek’s Best Role and a Movie Like No Other

It hurts my little alliteration loving heart, but I can’t do Tuesday Telugu this week.  Because a big snow storm ruined my plan to drive out to the movie theater yesterday.  So instead I am swapping in Friday Classics and, if the weather clears, I will do Telugu on Friday.  Or something.  Anyway, it still works because we get to have an Abhishek movie right by Abhi’s birthday!

Friday Classics: For Preity’s Birthday Week, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Her Most Interesting Role

Happy Friday!  I think this can legitimately be considered a classic, don’t you?  Not a perfect movie, but one that is also a little bit better and a little more interesting, and a little more memorable, than the run of the mill films.  And anyway, it’s Preity’s birthday week.

Friday Classics: Yuva, for the Start of Election Season

Happy day before the Women’s March to the Polls!  Which is a kick off and a reminder that it is all our responsibilities not just to vote, but also to run for office if possible.  So, the perfect week to talk about Yuva!  (yes yes, I know Aaytha Ezhuthu is better, I can’t find it, and I’ve already seen Yuva)

TGIF: Happy Christmas and World AIDs Day! Women (and a few men) in Red

Happy Friday!  My goodness this has been a frustrating day.  The second I get in to anything at work the phone rings and I have to stop.  Whether it is blogging or sending an email or doing accounting stuff for work-work, I just don’t have long enough to be able to focus on it.  I am writing this right now at about 2pm, we’ll see if I am able to finish and publish this thing before midnight.  Anyway, Red!  For AIDs and Christmas!!!

Silly Sunday: 18 Movies Shahrukh Should Make Next (Part 1)

Next week I get down to 11, right?  So I can go back in depth instead of these shorter ones?  That will be a relief.  This week though, another series of really short kind of idea sketches, since I have to do a full 18.

Happy-making Songs in My Own Version of Antakshari

Why is there no news today?  Why isn’t SRK releasing the newest Jab Harry Met Sejal song trailer?  Why can’t I find anything for my quick afternoon post?  All of these reasons and more are making me grumpy and depressed, so I am going to cheer myself up by looking at all the songs that make me smile.  And also distract myself by playing my own personal version of Antakshari, connecting song by song through actor instead of word (don’t speak Hindi) or sound (can’t appreciate music).  Feel free to suggest alternative happy songs that I could have gone with!
