TGIFF! Another very stressful work week, end of year tasks are the WORST, so I am going to reward myself with a nice SRK post inspired by the links Angie posted to his speech at the Calcutta film festival.Continue reading

Monday Morning Questions: What do you want to ask me on Rani’s Birthday???
Happy Monday!!! And Happy Rani Day!!! I am sitting in my lovely sunroom thinking that it is really too sunny. It might be time to consider blinds.Continue reading
Friday WatchAlong: Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, 3pm Chicago Time!!!!
Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! Friday WatchAlong! I did work all morning, ran an errand, then came home and had a nap, and now I am all settled in for this movie! And I will NOT fall asleep (as I tend to do when we have Friday afternoon watchalongs).Continue reading
JLo and Ben Inspired Post: What Former Couple of Indian Film Do You Wish Would Get Back Together?
I just read a month and a half of People magazines, and my goodness are they excited about JLo and Ben! Which made me realize it’s not just in India that celebrity shifted in the early 2000s, it’s crazy that in America these two 50 year olds are still bigger stars than everyone who came after them. And also, years later reunions are a GREAT story and I want more of them.Continue reading
I Have a Good Movie Idea for Rani! Tough Cop Working with 3 Old Men
I’ve got a headache today so I am not thinking too hard about anything, instead I am watching a soothing BBC show and I just realized it would be perfect for Rani.Continue reading
The Mahabharata! Let’s CAST It!!!!!
The 8 central characters are such great types, super fun to cast. Don’t worry, if you somehow don’t know the story, I will summarize the main bits that are important for casting.Continue reading
Friday WatchAlong: Should We Celebrate Rani or Akshaye? Is it Time to Watch Hulchul or Dil Bole Hadippa?
I suppose we could watch a Deep and Smart movie from either of them, but I don’t want to! And that’s not the Friday WatchAlong brand anyway. Rani’s birthday was on Sunday, Akshaye’s is next Sunday, who do we celebrate????Continue reading
Badal Review: Adorable Young Rani, Bonkers Plot, AWESOME Songs, All the Best of the 90s
Do you feel the need for a crazy nonsense plot, Rani being unbelievably cute, and Bobby Deol being a hilariously bad actor? This is the movie for you! Seriously, Bobby is falling off the couch laughing BAD.Continue reading
Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Day After Rani’s Birthday?
Happy Monday! I got to see a PERSON yesterday!!! I picked my friend up at work and we got ice cream cones and then went back to my place and watched a Rani movie and it was AMAZING. And now I am trying to come down off that high and actually do work-work.Continue reading
Happy Birthday RANI!!!!!
What a grand GRAND day!!!!!! There is really only one way to celebrate, I think. To the tune of “My Country Tis of Thee”.Continue reading
Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Have a Lazy Day
Happy Saturday!!!! I am so glad to have a nothing weekend. Especially today, I can just do my puzzle and watch TV and be cozy. And probably close the laptop most of the day too.Continue reading
Hello Brother Review: That Brief Shining Moment When Salman Thought He Could Actually Get His Brothers to HAVE JOBS
I am so happy, I have been wanting to see this movie for almost 20 years. Well “wanting”. Maybe “vaguely curious” that was transformed to “want” after it was forbidden to me by The Universe. And now The Universe has relented, and I have watched this movie, and I never have to see it again. And you never have to see it even once because I watched it for you!Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown! Paheli, an SRK-Amitabh Movie for Amitabh’s Birthday
What a nice coincidence! Amitabh’s birthday and Yashji’s birthday, both perfectly timed to post a collaberation.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown, Veer-Zaara! I Don’t Love It!
Three review day! I’ve totally lost track of how many movies/days I have left, but I feel like I need to increase my rate of review.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown, Chalte Chalte! I Like This Movie!
This movie discussion should be a fascinating comparison with my re-review of KANK from yesterday. Both films are about married couples struggling with the distance between who they are as people, and what they feel their married roles should be. Only in this movie, our husband and wife really truly love each other, so they are able to fight their way back together, even when he fails as a provider and she fails as a mother/homemaker.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Month Re-Review, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna!
I just reread my original review, and it was quite good, but there are so many other interesting points to discuss that I didn’t even touch upon! I’m excited!Continue reading
Friday Kind of Question: Who Is the Sexiest Man and/or Woman in India Today for You?
It’s Friday! I’ve had a long week! Let’s be silly.Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai! Three Important Polls
I like polls, but I refuse to use the polls built in tool. I want you to comment so you can say more if you like, and I can ask follow up questions, not just pick something on a list (boring!).Continue reading
Shahrukh Birthday Countdown, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Let’s Talk COSTUMES!!!!
Second general Kuch Kuch post! Oh man, I am so happy just rereading this. KKHH is really my happy place.Continue reading
18th Birthday of Mujshe Dosti Karoge!!!! The Movie That Made Us All Fall in Psycho Hrithik
Mujshe Dosti Karoge is turning 18! If it were a person, it would be old enough to vote. But probably shouldn’t vote, because it is by turns bonkers and stupid. Which is, of course, why it is a DCIB favorite.Continue reading
Happy 18th Anniversary of Mujshe Dosti Karoge! To Celebrate, I Have ReWritten It as a Lesbian Love Story Between Kareena and Rani
Truly, gay fanfic is the greatest gift you can give any pop culture item. At least, I think so! And love triangles are so ripe for re-writing. Two girls loving the same boy is so so so so close to two girls sublimating their desire for each other by pretending to love the same boy.Continue reading
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Day! The Tragedy of Tina
Next most interesting character, Tina! Really it is the women who are original and new and different in this film, Shahrukh’s hero is good, but not quite so spectacular.Continue reading
Sexy Saturday: Sexiest Rani Songs, Ranked!
Yes, I am going out on a limb and picking which Rani song, over all, is sexiest! And then you get to critique me in the comments and correct me because I forgot something and so on. It’ll be fun!Continue reading
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?Continue reading
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.Continue reading
