Rani Mukherjee Alphabet Game! Alternate Movie Titles, Songs, and Co-Stars!

Okay, new rules for this one! You can use either a movie title, or a song, or a co-star. But the only rule is, you can’t have two of the same kind in a row. So I can’t say “Aamir” “Bobby”. But I could say “Aamir” “Badal”. Does that make sense?

Hindi Film 101: Rani Mukherjee! Repost For Her Birthday!

It’s funny, this is one of the people that I think I diverge in my impression from some of you. But not in an angry aggressive way, none of us feel super strongly about our opinions, there’s just a difference somehow. It’s interesting! And you can disagree totally with my conclusions, but still enjoy the basic facts I lay out.

Bad Girls Month: Let’s Talk Definitions! “Bad” and “Strange” and “Good”

Bad Girls month, woo-hoo! Let’s see if this brings views back. Or if I just have to wait until there is another big movie in theaters people are excited about. Or do drugs and rock ‘n roll to go along with my very popular “sex” week.

Ramesh Sippy Week: Seeta Aur Geeta Recasting/Rewriting Ideas for Modern Times! (Plus Bonus Andaz with DipVeer!)

Seeta Aur Geeta is the only Sippy film that can really be remade. Remaking Sholay is obviously impossible, and the other films fall into that fuzzy area where they are fun for what they are, and all the little character beats and stuff, but if you try to recreate it, it would all fly away and nothing special would be left. Like, I love Zamaana-Deewana, but remove the orgasm song, and Anupam Kher’s drag scene, and all you’ve got is a really weird plot about boring young lovers.

Valentine’s Week of Sex TGIF: Which Classic Actress Image is the Sexiest?

Objectifying women is wrong. BUT! If an entire image is carefully crafted, with the full participation of the model, to evoke sexuality, they we aren’t objectifying, we are talking about Art. You’ll see, these aren’t like “oo, I can see her breast” photos, these are classic elaborate really beautiful images. But which is the BEST?

Queens of Sex Competition: Rani Versus Vidya, Who is Better at Sex on Screen?

This is so HARD! They both have a natural joyful quality on screen that is so much more sexual than air brushed and perfect actresses. And they are both really good actresses who lose themselves in the moment and make you believe they are real people feeling real things. But which is better?

Rani Week: Talaash! Rani and Aamir’s Last Great Collaberation

Rani is technically just a supporting character, but her role is the secret motive and power and goal of the hero. It’s a fascinating kind of role, she has to be isolated from the rest of the plot, but at the same time not isolated, since her reactions drive Aamir in everything he does for the rest of the plot. It’s her sadness, happiness, strength, sorrow, and so on, that make Aamir angry, confused, dedicated and so on.

Anyway, ask me questions and distract me!

2009 Week: Dil Bole Hadippa, Shakespeare By Way of Cricket

Okay, who are my She’s the Man trufans? You know, the Amanda Bynes movie based on Twelfth Night that featured a pre-fame Channing Tatum and then was remade as this movie with Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee? Anyone? Well, if you are like me, you watch this movie and think “Shahid is good, but is he Channing Tatum good?”

Hum Hain Rahe Pyar Ki Pre-Review Post: Recasting! With a Gender Flip! Prithviraj-Rani, Tell Me You Wouldn’t Watch That!

I bowed to the pressure and rewatched it last night to prepare for a review, and it is so much cuter than I remembered. More importantly, it is just BEGGING for a modern day north-south remake.
