I was late for work on Thursday because I just had to stay home long enough to see how this thing ended. The original is only like 70 minutes and yet SO MUCH happens!!! I feel like it needs to be remade and given the 3 hour treatment it deserves. Also, I feel like Hindi film needs more sacrificial mothers rewarded with late in life romance main characters.Continue reading
This movie is so frustrating! So much good, and so much ANGRY MAKING. Not as bad as Jab Tak Hain Jaan, but not as good as it could/should be. Ugh, Yashji! Why you gotta disappoint me this way?Continue reading
I really love this movie. It was one of the early films I saw, one of the first movies I watched where I was told “this is an actual good movie”. And it is! It is an actual good movie! Not just a fun romance with something deep down below, but deep straight through.Continue reading
This is a movie that came out right when I was first getting in to Indian film, and I really liked it. It hasn’t held up super well as the years have gone by, but it is still fun and the central performances are still great. Even if the ending is a wee bit silly.Continue reading
I’m including this on Wednesday Malayalam, because PRITHVIRAJ! In one of his greatest roles. Or at least most shirtless roles.Continue reading
Finally an SRK film! And also an older film, meaning before the past 10 years. Somehow I started off with a bunch of new stuff.Continue reading
I love FanFic from the comments! Partly because it is always more fun when it is written as a collaboration, partly because it means I know at least one person will be interested in reading it. Although really, you should all read it. Not all my FanFics are good, but this is a really really good one.Continue reading
You ready for some fist pump moments of female power? I know I am! And I have collected them here, so long as the nice people on youtube don’t pull them down.
This is Voter Registration week in America, 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)
I finally watched Alai Payuthey! After putting it off for years and years and years and years and years. Because I love Saathiya, and I didn’t want to risk having it spoiled. But turns out, they are two distinctly different movies! Although still similar to Saathiya, so this is going to be kind of a combined review. I talked about some of these differences a little already when I reported on the OK Jaanu/OK Kanmani remake thing.
Raajneeti, Sarkar, and the original film, I have been on a bit of a Godfather binge (I also rewatched 1 and 2 over the past couple days). So now the inevitable final step, writing my own version.
Rainy rainy rainy here. And, I assume, rainy rainy rainy there too. So heck, I’m gonna do rain stories. And rain makes me feel arty, so they will all be reflective little art movies.
Suggestion courtesy of Meenakshy, I’m gonna do best eyes in Indian film. In multiple categories, because you can’t really compare, like, Madhuri versus young Salman.
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.
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.
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?
It’s Thursday, I want the week to be over, and yesterday it came up that a fair number of us watched/watch Parks and Rec. So why not kill a little work time by recasting it?
This is from last year, but they are still good ideas! So along with the sequels for Rani from earlier today, here are some brand new movie ideas.
I have really done an awful lot of Rani themed fanfic! But hey, why not repost all of it? You can just not read it if you aren’t interested.
I’m excited! Lots of fun options here! Not just epilogues and alternative endings, but straight up separate movie plots following up on the same characters.
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.
My second TGIF! For the birthday girl. And I am sleepy (Dog got me up again last night, and there is STILL no adoption on the horizon), so I am going to be lazy: Rani Mukherjee Holding Things.
Happy Rani’s Birthday! And after Sridevi, she becomes the first actress to have a full film index all to herself.
