Silly Sunday: Shahrukh and Irrfan in a Passionate Late in Life Relationship

Well, MKY pointed out at in the comments on my Friday post that Shahrukh would never play a same-sex romance, or the father of a marriage age daughter, or a polyamorous man in 3 relationships.  To which I said “well, that’s what fanfic is for!”  So if Shahrukh isn’t going to give us these films in real life, I feel I have an obligation to give them to us in fanfic form.

Silly Sunday: Wedding Secret Romances

Happy Sunday!  I am sitting on the couch at the end of a long day (groceries, laundry, knitting group, errands) and I am going to treat myself by writing a fun little Silly Sunday post.

Silly Sunday: Fake Marriage Romances, One of the Best Romance Tropes, Featuring Aditya-Anushka, Ranveer-Dips, and SRKajol

Moviemavengal confessed her love for the “fake marriage” romance trope, and it’s one I like quite a bit as well.  And it’s pretty rare in Indian film, replaced by “real arranged marriage becomes love” which isn’t quite the same thing.  So I shall write a few script suggestions just in case anyone needs any! (oh, and if you want to see one that already exists, check out Love By Square Foot on Netflix)

Silly Sunday: Random Harvest! A completely Ridiculous Plot that is Just Begging to Be Remade in India

I’m exhausted after yesterday, so I’m not coming up with new stories, instead I am lifting a ridiculous plot from a classic Hollywood film/British novel.  A plot so ridiculous that it really belongs in India any way, it was wasted in Hollywood.

Silly Sunday: The Godfather with The Three Khans and Shahrukh as the Hero

Raajneeti, Sarkar, and the original film, I have been on a bit of a Godfather binge (I also rewatched 1 and 2 over the past couple days).  So now the inevitable final step, writing my own version.

Silly Sunday Quickie: Recasting/Writing of Stuff Only I Care About, Murder She Wrote, Terry Pratchett and Shahrukh Khan, and Mad Miss Manton

I put up a nice rerun post with all kinds of stories you should actually care about, so now I am going to be indulgent and put up a quick post with only things I care about.

Silly Sunday: All About Eve Remake With Shahrukh Khan! Just Because I Want It

This is almost as indulgent as when I rewrote The Philadelphia Story.  Who in this day and age and on an Indian film blog knows the movie All About Eve?  To the point of remembering all the details of the characters and themes and stuff?  Oh well, it makes me happy, and keeps me tied to me roots (my roots being American movies before 1960 which were what I watched exclusively for the first 18 years of my life).  Anyway, Procrastinatrix suggested the idea, so I know she at least will be interested.

Silly Sunday 2: Sci-Fi Film Remakes, The Fifth Element to Martian Chronicles, Shahrukh to Dhanush

More suggestions from you!  Suggestions that also turned into reading recommendations for me, fun fun!  Oh, and plot ideas for movies I really want to see made, whether the stories are translated out of the sci-fi realm or not.

Silly Sunday: Couples We Want to See, Varun-Parineeti to Arjun-Anushka to Swara-Ajay to Varun-Bhumi to Alia-Ayushmann

These are really stories you wrote yourself.  Or at least started yourself, on the Wednesday post I had a wonderful time coming up with ideas based on the casts you wanted to see. These are those same ideas, just brushed up and expanded a little bit.

Silly Sunday: Hindi LM Montgomery, Shahrukh as a Dashing Mature Man Romancing Shy Old Maid Tabu

Okay, prepare yourself for a very very deep cut.  This is my absolute favorite LM Montgomery short story.  So, not an “Anne” book, and not one of her other lessor series either.  And not even from the first short story collection Chronicles of Avonlea, but aaaaallllll the way in Further Chronicles of Avonlea.  But it’s SO GOOD!!!! How can I resist I remake?  And it is just crying out for Shahrukh.

Silly Sunday: Malayalam LM Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables with Nivin Pauly

I’m doing it!  A totally ridiculous extremely specific post for those people who live within the Venn diagram overlap of “Familiar with Malayalam Films” and also “Familiar with the Anne of Green Gables Series”.  So, Angie.  You better appreciate this Angie!

Silly Sunday: Happy Birthday Sanjay, Here is My Best Sanjay FanFic EVER

Sorry sorry sorry!  Yesterday just completely wiped me out (22 guests is too many guests, especially when one of them has severe dementia and 4 of them are small children).  So I literally have not left my bed all day, and every time I try to think straight and come up with a brilliant fanfic, it all just sort of floats away from me.  So I am doing a reprint and failing you, my faithful readers.  Oh well, at least it is a really good reprint, based on Daboo Ratnani photos and Sanjay Dutt and his dog. Continue reading

Silly Sunday: Happy Pride (Repost)! Many Many FanFics, Including Shahrukh/Arjun and Rani/Vidya

You understand that I mean “gay” as a genre, not an insult, right?  Kind of horrible that I have to make that clarification.  There used to be a movie store in the gay neighborhood of my city that had a series of shelves called “Neighborhood Favorites”.  Which was their little pseudonym for movies with same sex romantic plot lines.  So maybe I should say that instead, all the Khans, plus Amitabh, should be in “neighborhood favorite” movies.

Silly Sunday: Mini-plots, pick one! Everything from Arjun-Hrithik Rom-Com to Naked SRK

Happy Father’s Day!  I already reposted last year’s post, which was hideously in depth.  And today I am busy giving the church service AND organizing food for coffee hour AND spending time with Dad and Grandpa.  So for new content, one line plot ideas.  Vote for your favorite!  Maybe I will write the whole thing next week.

Silly Sunday: Father’s Day! Father Plots For Everyone, Pick Your Favorite

Happy Father’s Day!  This is a repost from last year, but it is very long and worth rereading.  And also very very good, I forgot how good this one was!  There’s Rana and Shahrukh fighting in wet shirts, Ranbir and Sonakshi falling in love, Varun Dhawan and a baby, all kinds of good things.  Also, it’s a Father’s Day Multiverse and all the stories are connected.  And anyway, I am spending 6 hours at church today (service plus organizing coffee hour plus meeting), so I earned a rerun.

Silly Sunday: Sexy Films for Hrithik, Star Romance for Anyone

It came up in discussion that Hrithik has one tragic gap in his filmography: not enough straight sexiness!!!!  And, as his impending inevitable sexy horizon comes ever closer (have you see Rakesh?  Not a good sign for middle-aged Duggu!), it is increasingly important that he grabs these chances while he has them.  Also from discussion, why is there no movie about a movie star falling in love with an average girl?  It seems like such an obvious fantasy!

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!

Silly Sunday: Karan Johar Sequels, Part 2!!!! Kal Ho Na Ho Na Ho, Kabhi Alveda Na Kehna Na Kehna, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Again, and Student of the Decade

I got very excited by this idea.  A few of these are reposts, but the really long ones are original, written just for today.  Which is why I had to do two parts, because this is much much much too long.

Silly Sunday: Karan Johar Sequels!!! Part 1, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham Kabhi Khushi, and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Hota Hai

What fun Karan Johar’s birthday week is!  So many wonderful options for theme posts.  This is a very very very long one.  So long, that I had to split it in two parts, and it’s still really really long.  Be warned!
