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
Kal Ho Na Ho has come up remarkably often in the comments as we talk about our ideal version of a love story. So I want to use it as kind of a jumping off point for a greater discussion.Continue reading
Yaaaay, I finally get to put up my Tashan review! And hopefully some of you either watched it this week or remember it well enough to comment anyway.
You know those movies where you kind of hope the power goes out at the theater so you can stop watching it? This is one of those movies. And I’m not going to waste much time reviewing it. So you don’t have to waste much time reading the review.
Happy Friday! I managed to get through the week somehow! Well, almost, I’ve got one more day left. But yesterday was the day when the staff went from 4 to 1 (me). Today and Monday it will be back up to 2, and then by Tuesday it will be all the way to 4 again (woo).
Have you ever wanted to see Amitabh, Vidya, Saif, Sanjay Dutt, Sharmila Tagore, Boman Irani, and Jackie Shroff all in the same movie? And all playing magnificent complex interesting roles? Then, this is the film for you!
Usually I do birthday versus birthday, but Kareena has had a long enough career, I think she can be a challenge all in herself.
Happy Saturday! I am pre-scheduling this because I am going to sleep in! And then go see Soorma. And then take a nap. The perfect day.
This is where you can get a summary of what happens in episodes 3 and 4, and where you can discuss what you thought of them. I’m just trying to break down the spoilers a bit, so no matter where you are in the series, you have a place to talk. The place to discuss the full series, or read spoilers for it, is here.
I already did my massive SPOILERS and NO SPOILERS reviews, you can use those to discuss the show as a whole. But I know people are watching along and I don’t want them to risk spoiling others, plus it’s nice to break the discussion down a little sometimes.
Already wrote my no spoilers review, I’m going to do a quick spoiler review here as sort of a catch all, and then do a bunch of tiny little episode by episode reviews so we can talk as we go along.
As I feared, I ended up doing nothing today and just binging Sacred Games. Oh well, at least it was a really really good show, so I don’t feel like I completely wasted my day. And I will try to put up little mini-spoiler reviews over the course of the day tomorrow, so we can discuss without spoiling people who haven’t started/finished yet.
Happy Pride! I am celebrating by sleeping in and recovering from the concert last night. But I will still mark the occasion with the annual reposts!
I did a TON of research on this. And turns out there is no such thing as a “Pathani suit”. there are various specific things that it could be, traditional garb in the North Indian/Pakistani cultures, but what is generally called “Pathani” is really just loose Salwar and a very long Kameez.
Well, this is news. Or maybe not. Salman has been sentenced to jail a lot, and then somehow it ends up not happening, so I just don’t know.
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.
This is really not a good movie. Not in a “so bad it’s funny” way, just not a good movie. Very dull, very confusing, not great. But by golly Aamir did his best with his little role!
Amrita Singh! She has such a fascinating life story that I can’t resist writing about her. And it’s her birthday, so why not?
At one point, Shahrukh was rumored to be coming. But it looks like they scaled back after Shashi’s death. Which is good, because if Shahrukh had come, I would be SO JEALOUS! What does that baby have that I don’t have? Why would Shahrukh go to his party and not mine?
Sharmila was 13 at her debut, so she will have 13 reasons I love her! And one more than Dharmendra, to make up for going after him. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Extra news post this week, because there was some interesting stuff, and also I felt like we needed something to talk about besides Shahrukh.
