TGIF/Shahrukh Summer: 2000s or Today, Which Do You Prefer?

Silly post, unrelated to the Female Film theme, but I feel like we need silliness in our lives. Let’s compare old-young SRK photos and pick which is best!

Shahrukh Summer: In Honor of Khayyam and Poetry Day Yesterday, His Most Poetic Songs

Sorry, I know about half of my readers are not fluent Hindi speakers. I’m certainly not one either. But I am going to scramble in the dark and pick out the songs that, even with my small amount of Hindi knowledge, I can still enjoy as poetry. And as a special treat, I am posting translations for them all! Isn’t that fun?

Shahrukh Summer Discussion Post: Which Movie Roles From Other Actors Would We Like to See Him Play?

I had a 7am phone call at work this morning, meaning I left home at 6:30am, meaning I am not thinking super straight right now and deep thinking is not going to be happening today. So I’m gonna start off a Shahrukh discussion post and hope you all can think for me.

Shahrukh Summer/Silly Sunday: Tabu and Shahrukh Fun Comic Romance Adventure, Two Versions from Me and Emily!

This idea comes courtesy of Emily who requested a fun silly adventure where Tabu gets into wacky scraps and Shahrukh has to keep rolling his eyes and then coming in and rescuing her. And then she wrote a fantastic multi-starrer herself and let me add in a tiny bit myself. Oh, and we both ended up casting Saif, which is perfect since it was his birthday last week!

Women Directors Week: Happy New Year, The Potato Chip Bag of Movies

Have I reviewed Main Hoon Na? I can’t remember. I know I did Om Shanti Om because Farah re-tweeted my review and that was cool. And I know I HAVEN’T done this movie, because I made a mental note that I hadn’t reviewed it a few months back. Anyway, I already reviewed a fascinating groundbreaking risky sexy feminist film Paap, today I will review a big dumb fun hit film with a neutral to anti-feminist message. Let’s see which gets more attention!

Shahrukh Summer Discussion Post: Melbourne Film Festival Chat Space!

Shahrukh is out of hiding! Yaaaaay! For another one of those pleasant events he has been doing, mature and international and where he is respected. I have no real “news” to report, it’s just a bunch of fun photos and instagram videos. But I thought I would put up a space for us all to share and discuss the fun photos and instagram stuff.

Shahrukh Summer/Women Directors Week: Which is Shahrukh’s Best Vaibhavi Merchant Song?

I really like Vaibhavi Merchant. Partly because she has such a great name (really, say it out loud, doesn’t it sound nice?), but also because she makes really interesting song sequences that aren’t just about the dance but tell a whole little story. Oh, and also because she has a great professional website that lists out every song she has done, so I can actually post every single collaboration with Shahrukh.

Shahrukh Summer Discussion Post: In What Movie Was He the Best Husband/Boyfriend/Partner? In Which the Worst?

You ready to make an objective judgement? We already had the “which Shahrukh do you want to marry” question a while back (which descended in to anarchy once the element of money/house was added, we all want the Goa house). No, this is purely objectively looking at his behavior as a life partner, in which film is he the BEST life partner?

Shahrukh Summer: Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Post, What is Up With Those Costumes?

This is so strange, I swear that when I was in college every single girl I knew was obsessed with KKHH, like the way we are with JHMS now. What has happened in the years since that it doesn’t inspire discussion? Anyway, I am still obsessed with it and can’t stop writing. Which is part of the reason I avoided writing about it because I knew I would get really detailed past the point of interest for anyone else.

Shahrukh Summer: Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Lovers and Soulmates, and the Importance of the Gazebo Scene

Niki suggested that instead of trying to cover everything in KKHH in one huge post, I break it down into certain themes or elements. I like that! And the first theme that I find interesting is tied up in everyone’s favorite scene, the Gazebo moment.
