Thank you Angie and Alisa/BollywoodNewbie for alerting me to the arrival of two really good trailers! I make no promises for the quality of the eventual movies, there’s many a slip twixt cup and lip, but the trailers look good!Continue reading
I started the 101s with the Kapoors, so this is one of the very first posts I put up. But it’s still accurate, and it’s still good, so I am reposting it! And now you can learn about the Kurrent Kapoor Sisters.Continue reading
I thought I’d reviewed this movie, but I’d just hosted a tweetalong. Oh well, I am sure I can zip out some kind of a review in no time.Continue reading
If I didn’t know where Imtiaz was heading, I would find this both better and worse. As in, I can watch it and see the hints of the irritating passive hero of Tamasha, but also the brilliant deep romance of Jab Harry Met Sejal. It’s an interesting one to look back on!Continue reading
My Mom and I are in the little town where my grandfather grew up to close up the last family house and do all that stuff. And we have an ambitious plan of hitting the historical society, the cemetery, Poppie’s high school, and the really good breakfast place. In the meantime, you all can chat!Continue reading
I think this is the movie I hate most. More than Bharat Ane Nenu, more than Bhansali’s Devdas, even more than Padmavat. And more than I hate the entity which is Rahul Desai. This movie is the source of everything that is wrong on earth condensed into one cotton candy colored pile of goo powered by toxic excrement of Disney films with Rani’s eyes and Saif’s energy. And yet, I love the soundtrack.Continue reading
Poor Nisha/Karisma! So much more interesting than “just” a third leg of a triangle should be. She deserves a happy ending, right?Continue reading
I love it when you inspire me in the comments! I always come up with much better stories based on your ideas than I do on my own. Anyway, these are from the comments on the “what actor does Shahrukh have the most chemistry with?” post.Continue reading
I suppose I could try for some objective overview of his career kind of thing. But, naaaaaah. I’m just gonna do my favorite random Saif songs, from the mullet era to the beard era.Continue reading
Such a silly fun light weight movie! You may say it’s stupid, and I won’t exactly argue with you, but it sure is fun too!Continue reading
It’s just SOOOOO GAY!!!! So much gayer than I remembered. Needlessly gay, it’s a fun movie even if you watch it “straight”, and then on top of the regular fun movie, they put in these ridiculous heaping helpings of gayness.Continue reading
Oh boy! A review for a movie that isn’t very good, so I can write it quickly! I hope. I tend to get a bit lost and write too much even about the less good movies.Continue reading
Fun post! I get to complain, and then you all get to complain back at me. It will be like when I talked about subtitles, but worse.Continue reading
Finally watched it! After having heard about it for years and years and years and years (the soundtrack is everywhere). And I’m kind of glad I waited, because this way I got to come at it having already seen a bunch more Gautham Menon movies and having a bit more of an idea of what he does.Continue reading
This is really Catherine’s idea, at least she is the one who put it together for me that Dustin Hoffman and Aamir Khan have similar reputations as nice guys who take their acting way way WAY too seriously. Dustin Hoffman made Tootsie partly to make fun of that about himself, and Aamir really needs to do the same thing.Continue reading
I wanted to do stars dressed as bunny rabbits, but there are shockingly few images of that. So instead I will settle for stars dropped around the grass like little Easter eggs. Can you find them all????Continue reading
I really really like this movie, for many reasons, but it wouldn’t be nearly as good as it is without Jaya Bachchan.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
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.
