Silly Sunday: Modern Films Remade as Period Dramas, Jab Tak Hain Jaan, Mujshe Dosti Karoge, and Dhoom 3

Happy Sunday! I put up a Big Big Post yesterday, so today let’s have some fun! This started as a discussion about (once again) the problems with Jab Tak Hain Jaan, which lead to a consideration of whether it might have made more sense if it had been set further in the past. Which lead me to thinking of an alternative (better) version set in the 40s-60s (different from my previous alternate versions). And then to other films that could have been better as period pieces. Huh. All major YRF films. YRF SHOULD HIRE ME TO HEAD A “PERIOD REMAKES” DIVISION!!!!!!

Bonus Silly Sunday: The Woman Who is Dumped, What Happens to Her?

I just wrote about Dil To Pagal Hai, and the general consensus in the comments was that we don’t want Karisma and Shahrukh to get together,  because she deserves better, someone who really truly loves her as much as she loves him.  And then I started thinking about the other strong interesting women who got dumped by the hero just because they weren’t his “true love”.

Silly Sunday: Stories for Maddy!

Angie in the comments, my dedicated Madhavan corespondent, said that Maddy has been talking about how he wants to do another love story but no one is offering him a good script.  That is so sad!!!!  Surely we, as a blog community, can come up with something for him.  Or many somethings.

Silly Sunday: Quickie Bonus FanFics! Snowed in with SRK

My first fanfic post was very long, had no SRK, and only had one story option.  All of these things have resulted in the past in a lack of interest from the readership.  So to make it up I am going to do something short, with a lot of options, and lots of SRK.

Silly Sunday: International Day of Women and Girls in Science! Vidya Balan Female Scientist With Supportive Men in Her Life

My sister, who does math, just forwarded me an email reminding her to celebrate the “international day of women and girls in science”.  Which I feel can best be celebrated by an epic fanfic about how hard and ultimately rewarding it can be to be a woman in science.

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.

Silly Sunday FanFic: Dogs! Dogs dogs dogs dogs dogs. And Shahrukh.

I spent three hours yesterday looking at dogs.  Well, 20 minutes looking at dogs, 2 hours and 40 minutes driving between shelters that turned out to be closed or not have any dogs and talking about dogs with my friend who came with me in order to stop me from taking home every dog there.  Anyway, what with all the doggie talk, it is obvious what the topic of this week’s fanfic will be.

Silly Sunday: New Years Time Travel!

Happy New Year’s Eve!!!!  Obviously, I have to do a theme post.  I considered stories that revolved around New Years celebrations, but then I wasn’t sure what that would look like in India, so instead I am going with my sister’s suggestion and doing New Year’s combined with time travel.

Silly Sunday: The Christmas Story, in a Hindi Movie Trilogy

I’m excited about this!  In spitballing back and forth in the comments on last week’s post (which was more about Christmas as a festival of lights and social experience and sexy holiday romance), it was suggested that I should just do the whole story.  And I think I can!  If I break it into 3 bits.

Silly Sunday: Christmas Themed! Lights and Trees and Mistletoe and SRK

Happy first Sunday of Advent!  Naturally, I had to do a Christmas themed post (to match my Christmas themed TGIF post).  I briefly considered doing unmarried mothers in honor of Mary, but then I decided to think small instead and use the random small items of Christmas as jumping off points for story ideas.
