Silly Sunday: Historic Films I Want to See, Mohenjo Daro Rewritten, Nur Jahan and Jahinger with Shahrukh and Tabu, and Edwina and Nehru in a Mini-Series

Grand finale of Historic Films week! The Historic films I have written which are so much better than the historic films people in Hindi cinema are actually making. I didn’t get around to watching Panipat, but really, just read this instead of looking for a review of that.

TGIF: For St. Nicholas Day, Let's Look at Shoes!

I wish Indian films and Indian celebrities focused more on shoes. They can be such delightful works of art, but unfortunately most of the time they seem like just after thoughts to outfits.

Saturday Small Talk: I Got No Sleep, Expect Weird Posts

Happy Saturday! I had big plans to be productive today, and then things went kind of heywire (sp?) last night and I ended up with no sleep. So instead I am going to try to finish writing the posts I promised you, forgive any sleep deprivation weirdness, and otherwise just sit on the couch.

2010 Discussion Post: My Name is Khan, What Made You Ugly Cry and What Made You Giggle?

Such an odd movie. I’ve yet to show it to someone who didn’t end up a sobbing broken mess by the end. Or to someone who didn’t giggle a bit at a scene here or there. The odd thing is, the “sobbing broken” moments and the “giggle” moments seem slightly different for each person.

Discussion Post (Remember, A Christmas Card is on the Line! COMMENT!): Rank SRK Jodis from 2010 to 2019

This should be a gimme, surely! Everyone has to have an opinion on this, right? Say something, let me know you are alive! Not that I am anyone to talk, I know what’s happening, I spent time this week buying and mailing Christmas cards and putting up decorations and so on. But still, can’t we take a little time to talk about meaningless stuff on the internet even during the holiday season?

2010 Week! My Name is Khan, a Very Very Dark Film and a Surprisingly Good Film

This is a very good deep review that did not get many readers or comments the first time around. I’m okay if the same is true this time. It’s a dark dark movie. I don’t want DCIB to become a dark place, so if you do comment, try to find a brightness in it somewhere. For instance, “this is a dark movie, and I am so proud that Shahrukh Khan was one of the first people to speak out about Islamophobia in America”. Or just keep it superficial, “this movie is so frustrating because there is so much well done in it, but the plot just makes no sense.”

Happy Juhi Day! Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, Her Happily Cynical Take on Media

Thank goodness for Juhi Day. Through a random combination of sickness and family emergencies and conferences, my office is half-staffed today and I get to spend the day being yelled at over the phone because the person they need is not available. But Juhi always cheers me up!

Netflix Serieses for Shahrukh! Red Chillies, Take These Ideas Free of Charge!

Having another lazy night, eating popcorn and watching BBC mysteries while the dog sleeps. It’s one of those days where it is so cold outside that once you get inside, your body goes into hibernation mode. Anyway, this means it is a good time for me to do a nice cosy little post, the ideas we have crowdsourced for the Netflix family series that Shahrukh should make in order to have a nice work-life balance while still keeping his face in front of the world in a non-controversial way.

To Celebrate the End of Shahrukh Month, Shahrukh Movies Re-Written Without Shahrukh (Yes, a romance for Rani and Kajol in KKHH)

Oh boy, a totally indulgent post! I love writing fanfic, and I am having a lazy happy evening with my dog. Don’t care if none of you read this (well, I care a little bit. It makes me really happy when you comment on my fanfic, especially with your own ideas), this will just be happy for ME.

Shahrukh Replies to Birthday Greetings! Thanks Kamal Hassan Two Times, Me Zero

I do so much for the man, and does he acknowledge it? NO! Okay, I understand that he has to thank the people he knows for real-real, but I do have that small moment of “why not me?” buried deep inside. This is probably why he spends so long thanking all those folks in just the right way.
