Well, we have a song that openly imitates every other club song ever, and a trailer that openly imitates every space movie ever. Hurrah for Indian ingeniuity (I’m grumpy this morning).

What a lovely thing to wake up to! And now I get to share it with you all. Most important thing to know, SUBTITLES! Even on the little teaser, even just as it is released. I am now in love with these producers.

Stree Review (SPOILERS): The Ending Might Have Been a Little TOO Open-Ended

Fun movie, funny movie, intricate movie.  I am really looking forward to digging up how it was put together!  And I am really really looking forward to all of you helping me understand the ending. Oh, and if you haven’t seen it, get over to my No Spoilers review instead!  You should read it anyway, because that’s where I talk about performances and stuff.

Stree Review (No Spoilers): Young Men Are Dumb and Funny

What a fun movie!  I don’t totally love it as much as I totally love A Gentleman, but it is in the same family of humor.  So I am going to take this moment, once again, to plug A Gentleman.  If you like this movie, you will like that one!  Oh, and you probably will like this movie.  It is very likable.

Silly Sunday FanFic: Stories Based on Reality, Including a Romance for ME!

This is partly based on a joking back and forth I had with my friend, partly based on a news story Asmita linked to in the comments, and partly based on everyone’s least favorite “actress”, Shraddha Kapoor.

News Round-Up: SRK Gets an Award, Shraddha Gets a Movie, Salman Gets a Death Threat, Vidya Gets Indira

More news!  Going back to my post this morning, it really feels like Padmavat has been holding us hostage for the past 2 months.  And now, suddenly freed, there is all kinds of news popping up all over, interesting news.

News Round-Up: Padmavati to Padmavat and Vaani to Shraddha

Well, it finally got approved.  And I kind of agree with everything the Censors did.  At least, as it is presented by them and the spin they are putting on it.  I am sure there are all kinds of political realities on the ground that I am missing which makes them not so great.  Oh, and I think we can aaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllll agree that swapping Vaani for Shraddha is a disaster of epic proportions.

Starter Kit: Actresses, Part 3, Soha to Lisa

I’m continuing to crank through the small time actresses, the ones who only need a few movies to fully understand their careers.  Because it’s a lot easier than trying to deal with the male stars and their longer careers, or the handful of super successful actresses (sorry Rani!  I’ll get to you someday!) (last small time actress post here)

Upcoming Rom-Com Trailers! Half-Girlfriend and Mere Pyaari Bindu

Yay, more rom-coms!  2016 was the year of serious patriotic historical dramas, but 2017 is looking decidedly more romantic.  Romantic and dramatic, none of that lightweight stuff like Befikre.  Which means I am watching these trailers going “wait, is something terrible going to happen or is this just a humorous misunderstanding?”

Aashiqui 2: A Star is Born With the Brilliance of Judy Garland Onscreen Replaced With the Brilliance of Mahesh Bhatt Offscreen

This is NOT a good movie.  But it is an amusing movie!  It wasn’t like the “wait for death” viewing experience of Azhar, or the “I am so angry I can’t function” experience of Ki & Ka.  It was a fun watch and if I had been about 20 years younger, I may have loved it.

New OK Jaanu Song! I am Conflicted

Remember how my whole OK Kanmani review was wondering what they would do with all the Tamil specific stuff that helped build a connection between the characters while they were both exiled in Bombay?  Well, this new OK Jaanu song shows the way the new movie might possibly have found a way to do the same.  And I am not sure if it works or not, because I am still so stuck in the previous one.

OK Jaanu Trailer: Was This Worth My Staying Up?

What is with Dharma releasing trailers at midnight my time?  I just went through this with ADHM!  If it was 3am, I wouldn’t bother.  But 11:30 is just on the farthest edge of when I would be awake anyway, so I figure I might as well stay up.  Oh well, I’ll have coffee tomorrow! (if you are curious, my review of the original OK Kanmani movie with SPOILERS is here)
