Silly Sunday: Little Women as a Dark Romantic Drama! Laurie is Evil and Amy is Gay

Thanks Alisa! You saw the new American Little Women and complained about it which inspired me to rethink my Indian remake (already wrote it once here) when you suggested that one of the Little Women should get herself a Little Woman.

Silly Sunday: Dark Reunion for Rani and Shahrukh, Charlie's Angels in India, and Akshay Gets His Come-Uppance

Random mixture of ideas today, I know most people don’t read these, but for those few of you who enjoy them these thoughts were too good to resist. Especially a movie where Akshay gets what’s coming to him. You can skip to the end if you just want to read that one

Silly Sunday: 5 Christmas Movie Ideas in 3 Sentences Each for the Indian Market!

I have seen sooooooooooooooo many Christmas movies in the last few days. And now I really want to spend Christmas in a small cheap to film in town in Canada. It’s not Christmas if I’m not seeing a bunch of random Canadian extras around an aging former family sitcom star in a Christmas sweater! Anyway, this goodness needs to break into the Indian market, and I am here with 5 separate plot ideas and suggested casting.

Silly Sunday: My Favorite Christmas Movies Remade in India! White Christmas, Best Man Holiday, Frozen

Ready for a silly silly indulgent post? But whatever, I have now both wrapped and mailed all my presents (meaning I am better than all y’all!!!!), so I can afford to be indulgent. Oh, and also, even if you don’t read all of these, take the movies as recommendations. Assuming you enjoy emotional love stories with happy endings (mostly) and random song sequences.

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.

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.

Silly Sunday: Expansion of the “14 Plots to Take a Second Pass” Post! Kuch Kuch, Kal Ho Na Ho, Asoka

Silly Sunday: The Gay Love Scenes Missing from War, and bonus Hugh Jackman-Shahrukh Musical Romance

Filmikudhi and I wrote an amazing Hugh Jackman-Shahrukh romance with lots of songs, and on the other hand there are also the gay love scenes that it feels like must have been in War at one point and then some no-fun common sense person said that you can’t have an explicit love scene between Hrithik and Tiger.

One Off Speculative Post: Epic Historic Romances India Should Make Instead of War Films, Including Shahrukh as Jahangir in a Nur Jahan Love Story!

I never thought I would say this, but I am so sick of big battles! With horses and swords and elephants. Okay, I tell a lie, I will never be sick of elephants. But the other stuff, yes. Let’s have more historical romances!

Silly Sunday FanFic: Same-Sex Romances, Antonio Banderas and Shahrukh, SOTY as It Should Have Been

Do we keep coming up with same-sex romances because they are sexy, or because it is a gap that can only be filled by fanfic and not reality? Or both? Anyway, here are two more of those thingies.

Silly Sunday: Stories Inspired By Song Videos, “Bang Bang”, “Love is a Dare”, “Ishq Shava”, “Janam Janam”, “Rock ‘n Roll Soniya”

You ready for a silly lazy idea? I’m gonna take a bunch of songs out of context and invent the movies they should belong in, because they don’t quite work in the movies they are in. Feel free to jump in with more ideas in the comments!
