I watched this for a film class and it was on the one hand a romance, and on the other hand an odd interesting way of telling an immigration story that was almost entirely internal and emotional.Continue reading
Well, this is a frustrating combo. A great movie stuffed inside a limp dull modern wrapping. If you have to watch it, it’s a definite start at the interval and skip the first have kind of film.Continue reading
What a good movie! Yes, the end totally fell apart, but it bravely confronted all kinds of big scary issues along the way. Read on if you won’t have the chance to see it, are not interested in a romance film, or are interested but need to be spoiled first so you can relax and enjoy it.Continue reading
Woot! It’s a Love Story! The title did not tell a lie. It’s not the best most satisfying love story I have ever seen, but it is for sure a love story. If you are considering seeing it, I will warn you now that the end bit is EXTREMELY stressful. And I give you the option of finding out what happens even in this No Spoilers review if you just can’t relax and enjoy a movie with that kind of stress.Continue reading
Woooo, movies! Not actually releasing, but at least being made! I am excited. Also, we get to talk smack about Aayush Sharma, which is one of my favorite things.Continue reading
Happy Monday! I feel vaguely draggy and not awake, because the stupid sun wasn’t up at 6:30am when I woke up. Stupid sun.Continue reading
I find the differences in how heroines start between industries FASCINATING. I can’t possibly cover every possible variation, but I can use Sai Pallavi as a jumping off point to talk about how it can sometimes happen.Continue reading
Happy Saturday! I am so happy I don’t have to work today! This week was exhausting, it’s nice to have time off from that work, and more time for other work.Continue reading
I think a few of you finally saw this thanks to it popping up on mainstream streaming sites recently? Welcome to the Sai Pallavi fan club! And the Sekhar Kammula fan club!Continue reading
Such a well-made movie! I didn’t fully appreciate it back when I first saw it, but after having seen more Malayalam films, and more Dulquer performances, I really see how it is special.Continue reading
This is gonna be weird. I wrote a Premam review very early on. And then I came back and reviewed it a second time. And now I am going to put these two reviews together into one awkward review.Continue reading
The last Thursday review! We had 96, OK Kanmani, and now Fidaa. So many attractive men from the southern states.Continue reading
I’ve already done saris and Anarkalis, this year I am thinking small. And also something we can all have opinions on, no need to be experts. Right? I’m assuming most of us wear/own/have bought earrings.Continue reading
This was VERY VERY difficult to research!!!! Not as much information as I would wish on relationship status of the famous. I decided not to include people who were married, or engaged, or in that all-but-engaged level like Rajkummar or Varun. But just dating someone like Ranbir and Alia, fair game! And I know I probably missed people (Arjun Rampal now divorced, Sushmita Sen never married, Tabu, etc). I am posting this earlier than the usual TGIF just so we all have time to make full careful considerations and decisions.
I may be failing at my “only have coffee three times a week and then the caffeine doesn’t get to you” system. I am sitting in my office on a no-caffeine day dreaming of coffee. Maybe I should get a hot chocolate instead and see if I can trick myself.
Well, it’s the Friday after Independence Day. I should do something patriotic, right? And all I can think of is the Indian colors. Oh well, good enough. My brain is fried after writing my two recent brilliant Hindi Film 101 pieces (read them! They are very good, even if they don’t have sexy photos and star gossip)
I’m doing it! A totally ridiculous extremely specific post for those people who live within the Venn diagram overlap of “Familiar with Malayalam Films” and also “Familiar with the Anne of Green Gables Series”. So, Angie. You better appreciate this Angie!
I’m back! Already put up one long an self-indulgent post based on fairy tales, now I am doing another, and I don’t care what you think!
Did you know HeroTalkies merged with YuppTV? In some very vague way that I can’t fully understand and makes both websites impossible to navigate? This is why I ended up watching MCA. It was the only movie I was successfully able to find and play. Well, and also Nani. And also Sai.
Well, I watched it! Because, weeks and weeks after it’s release, it is STILL playing one show a week at my local theater! Which means I had the opportunity to see it, and also the curiosity, what is it about this movie that makes it keep playing and playing and playing? Besides what must be an extremely favorable per play contract with the theater?
I don’t have a super lot to say about these trailers, but I am really hoping that you do! Because I need to learn more about these movies and decide if it is worth it to go see them in theaters. Because, you know, Tamil/Telugu movie tickets are big bucks!
