Remake Ideas: Which Weird True Crime Story Would Make the Best Hindi Film? (featuring Sid M, Shahrukh, Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, etc)

I am watching so much true crime! But, like, small true crime. Little hour long shows that just summarize mildly interesting local news stories, not big injustices or tragedies or stuff. And most of them have some crazy personal story at the center which is AWESOME.

Christmas Movies Made Better: Home Alone with a Desi Female Heroine in a Telugu Family Film, White Christmas in the Hindi Film Industry Post-Independence, Princess Switch Remade Totally Straight

Christmas Movies! YAAAAAAAY! I watch them, I sew, I wrap, I cook, I clean, my December goes by. They are not really made to be watched closely, I think, they are made to be thrown on the TV to stop the kids from screaming, or else to play in the background for company as you complete a thousand and one tasks.

Three Sentence Remake Ideas for Sid M, In and Out With Sid-Varun, Christmas in Connecticut with Jackie-Sid, The Bishop’s Wife with Shahrukh-Alia-Sid

Christmas remakes! Okay, one of them isn’t technically Christmas, but it’s all family love and stuff, so it could easily be Christmas.

Silly Sunday: My Recent Binge Watches Remade, Wings and Midsomer Murders and Miranda

Most of you have seen some to none of these, don’t care! For my own happiness, I am going to play with how they could be turned into Indian movies/TV shows. And I guess you should all watch them? If you like pleasant lowkey shows that leave you smiling and ready for bed, these are very good options.

Happy Father’s Day/Pride! Which of These Father/Queer Stories Do You Most Want to See?

It is too hot to think straight today (ha! straight!), not only can I not think enough to write a “real” post and have to fall back on fanfic, even with fanfic I can’t think it all through, I have to just start it off and leave it there for you to imagine the rest.

Silly Sunday: Street Dancer 3D, the Way It Should Have Been!

We watched it on Friday, which was super fun. But also we got all upset about the half done love story and I started thinking about how I would have written it to have a whole other second half that gave a more satisfying love story structure instead of the very light weight plot with a lot of dance competitions instead of relationship drama.

Karan Johar Coda: What Would Happen in Karan Johar Movies if Women Were Brave Enough to Say What They Think?

You thought we were done with Karan Johar, didn’t you? But no! I have one more thing to say that occurred to me while we were doing our Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham watch. And this thing will also, once again, give me a chance to rewrite the endings of Karan Johar movies which is my favorite thing of course.

Silly Sunday: Some NOT Gritty and Violent Mystery Serieses for Netflix! (Rosemary and Thyme and Midsomer Murders)

Shashi alert! Well, sort of. At least “Kendal Family Alert”. Let’s look at nice pleasant murder mystery serieses from the BBC, the kind where death happens without blood or mess and usually to unpleasant people we don’t mind when they day, and suggest that perhaps Netflix should stop making scary bloody rapey shadowed urban series, and more happy pretty countryside murders.

Silly Sunday FanFic: Let’s Write a Story Together! Part 4, Shahrukh the Elephant Loving Animal Rights Attorney and Tabu as the High School Teacher Hiring Him to Get Her Dog Back from Her Ex-Husband

Not “meet”, we already had that, but “meat”, the serious center cut portion of it all. Fun thing is, this is an Indian film we are writing, so we get the center cut here, and then the next post is the pre-interval finale, then the Twist, then the post-interval reset, then the second “meat” part, then the finale-finale, and then the epilogue. So many pieces!
