News Update: Salman on PC, and Shahid Does Prabhudeva

This is it, right?  This has got to be the end of the Priyanka Chopra story, since PC refuses to give a statement herself, that means Salman’s version becomes definitive and now we are done?  Please please say we are done!  Oh, and if you don’t care about PC, it is possible this other news story will get you very excited (angry maybe?).

News Round-Up: Hrithik Will Dance, Salman Will Circus, and Priyanka Will Promote Herself

It was so nice not reporting Priyanka news for years and years.  But now she is back and I can’t escape her.  And I really don’t like it, because it makes me sound a little mean and a lot crazy, but on the other hand, it is what it is and this is the only way to interpret it.  Other stuff is more interesting though, so I can talk lots and lots about that and little little about PC.

Dabangg Reloaded Chicago Show: Literally Unwatchable, WHAT HAPPENED????

Well, that was a disaster!  And not in the way I was expecting, but rather the complete opposite.  Salman and all the performers were great, it was everything else that was shockingly bad.  And I can look at video from Atlanta and see that they got a totally different show than I did.  WHAT HAPPENED IN CHICAGO????

Race 3 Review (SPOILERS): A Party Planned for Salman, and the Guest of Honor Didn’t Really Show Up

I’m back!  I already put up the No Spoilers review which pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the film.  The plot is a total mess, so knowing spoilers won’t really change anything.  This review is probably more helpful for people who have seen the film and are confused (as I was), than for people curious what the film is about.  Bottomline is, it’s about nothing!

TGIW: Dhoti Men, Because My Boss is Out of the Office Today

My boss is gone today which means I can look at photos on my computer without fear of being observed and judged.  Well, my co-workers might judge me, but whatever, I don’t care what they think.  And I was just talking with Meenakshy about who looks good in a Dhoti, so why not do a Dhoti post?  Similar too but different from my previous Lungi post. (for the purposes of this post, “Dhoti” means any single cloth that is used as a wrap skirt by an Indian man)

I Just Watched Another Malayalam Movie That Could be Remade for Shahrukh! Or Aamir or Salman

Mamootty picks the BEST story ideas for his age.  After Bhaskar the Rascal, here is another one, Pullikkaran Staraa, that is age appropriate and interesting and could so easily be translated into a Hindi film.  Especially since the Malayalam original was only moderately successful and of only moderate quality.

News Round-Up: Old Feuds, Old Loves, New Movie Theaters

This is a suuuuuuuuper fast news report, because I am still on vacation and I want to spend time with my sister, not blog.  But I also feel it’s not fair to all of you, who read me so faithfully, not to provide content!  And anyway, there were a couple of interesting stories today.

Silly Sunday: Female Friendship Vengeance Story, Inspired by Alia and Ranbir and Kat

Happy Sunday!  I wrote soooooooooooooooo much yesterday, and like good high quality stuff, reviews of Bhavesh Joshi and Veere Di Wedding.  So this morning, I get to write short total trash, in a nice change of pace.  Let’s pretend the world is a bad romance novel of the Judith Kranz type and rewrite reality!

Madhuri Day Still! Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Her Most Successful Movie

It’s been pointed out that I might appear to undervalue this film and that is why I haven’t spoken much about it.  Truly, I don’t undervalue it!  It’s just such an unusual film that it doesn’t fit easily with a discussion of anything else.  Nothing else is really like it, and therefore available for comparison with it.  And it didn’t start a particular trend in filmmaking (beyond the general “Family Films” trend), because it would be so hard to imitate.  But yes, I do know about this movie, I know all sorts of things about it and I am aware of it’s place in film history.

Sonam Wedding Epilogue! Start Your ‘Ships!

I can’t stop myself!  I keep looking at Sonam wedding videos!  And, thanks to the latest batch, I now have several competing “ships” that I am rooting for.  And I am sharing them with you, in the hope of either getting companions on board the SS Relationship, or else getting a solid common sense mind to drag me off.
