Silly Sunday FanFic: You Ready for the Most Complicated Incestuous and Generation Bending Plot Imaginable?

Hopefully that headline drives people to actually read the post! I need help figuring out if this plot is actually incestuous or just FEELS incestuous.

Silly Sunday FanFic: Classic Hollywood Noble Mother Soaper with Older Charming Newspaper Editor Romance! Rani and SRK?

I was late for work on Thursday because I just had to stay home long enough to see how this thing ended. The original is only like 70 minutes and yet SO MUCH happens!!! I feel like it needs to be remade and given the 3 hour treatment it deserves. Also, I feel like Hindi film needs more sacrificial mothers rewarded with late in life romance main characters.

Silly Sunday FanFic in Search of an Ending: Cheeky Shahrukh Age Gap Romance, Fun Ranveer Mistaken Identity Romance, Help Me Solve This!

I mostly have these worked out. No clever dialogue details or stuff this time around, but the broad strokes are there. Except the end! I have such cute plot ideas based on cute American movies, but I don’t know how to end them. I’ve caught the Karan Johar bad ending disease. Help! I’m tempted to just give all the heroine’s cancer or bring in Salman to give a looooong speech and call it a day.

FanFic! The Most Unacceptable Possible Plot For Indian Film, I Have Found It!!!! And, on the Other Hand, The Most Acceptable Plot for Shahrukh to Play!

Watched another early morning classic noir, a jail break movie. But what intrigued me for an Indian remake is that it managed to come up with the most shocking possible plot and I kind of want to see someone remake it just to watch everyone Lose Their Freakin’ Minds. And I also watched an early morning classic family film which would be perfect if Shahrukh wanted to play a befuddled father. Or Anil. Or Aamir. Whoever.

Silly Sunday: Two More Noirs for Red Chillies! Leave Her to Heaven, and Murder My Sweet with Shahrukh. Plus Bonus Period Calcutta FanFic!

The problem with film noirs is that half the time they are more atmospheric than plot based. Makes it harder to remake them. I am going to remake another one with a good strong plot (Leave Her to Heaven), and another that I really love and which has a totally impenetrable plot (Murder My Sweet) but maybe also a role for Shahrukh. Oh, and that fanfic I wrote in the comments for Miss Briganza, in case anyone missed it. And this is a VERY LONG POST. But I hope you will read it, because there is good stuff in here.

Silly Sunday Bonus: Film Noir Remakes! (Red Chillies, check this out!)

I’ve hit a rich stream of B-grade film noirs on TV. The B-grades are sometimes better than the A-grade ones, you could get grittier and darker and weirder when no one was looking. Anyway, there are two that I think would work really well as dark weird gritty Indian remakes. (note for my sister: Don’t Read This! We are watching them together when I visit)

Another Silly Remake! Light in the Piazza, with Madhuri and Shahrukh as Delicately Flirting In-Laws

I like to do at least one long post a day, and with the Kalank release messing up my review schedule, and the Kalank news domination messing up anything interesting to talk about there, I’m retreating to fanfic for my long form writing. It’s that, or just a lot of Albie Dog photos. Or not writing anything, but then the words build up in my head and make me sick, so that’s no good. I need my 4,000 words a day purge!

Silly Sunday: More Classic Film Remakes! Too Many Girls, My Second Favorite Eddie Bracken Movie! And the Plot Karan Johar Should Have Used for SOTY2

Miracle of Morgan’s Creek is first, obviously. And if I had better taste, it would be Hail the Conquering Hero, but that movie always feels a little too sad to me. Anyway, this movie isn’t sad! This movie is silly and fun and college and delightful, and should absolutely be Karan’s next plot to launch new stars. Hey, it worked in Hollywood! This is the movie that started off the careers of Ann Miller, Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Eddie Bracken, and Van Johnson (he was in the chorus).

Silly Sunday FanFic: Overboard! With Shahrukh and Juhi, and Prabhas and Anushka!

I posted this late Wednesday night, but it got very very few views. I am hoping that is because people just didn’t see the post, not because they hate it. I have TV again thanks to youtube, which means I am seeing Overboard on a constant repeat, the way TV tends to play it. And I am thinking, once again, how easy it would be to fix this and make it the totally perfect plot. And so long as I am doing that, why not set it in India?

Silly Random FanFic: Overboard! Rewritten for India, Plus Gender-Swapped!

Silly Sunday: Garbo Remakes! Ninotchka with SRK, Marie Walewska in Colonial India

So, TCM (greatest channel EVER) is in the middle of a Garbo fest and I caught a double bill on Friday and it inspired me. Get ready for very VERY specific narrowcasting fanfics. You know, for all those hardcore Garbo/Indian film fans. There must be more of them than just me and Maria Gill, right?

Random FanFic: Better Romance Endings! 96, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Fidaa, Qarib Qarib Singlle, and Bonus Gully Boy Extra Romance

I need to write something I can stay focused on while being interrupted by phone calls every 5 minutes at work, and fanfic is where it is at. I get so sucked in so fast to my own stories that I can jump in and out a lot more easily than some stupid analytical post. Hopefully these are fun for at least some of you, since they are all just additions to movies we know. Oh, and obviously there are spoilers for the films’ real endings buried in my rewrites. Also, this is a very very long post, but you can always just read the ones where you know the original film already.

Silly Sunday: A Summer Place, Shahrukh as a Sexually Unsatisfied Middle-Aged Man and Loving Father

I had such fun re-writing one strange memorable 60s Hollywood teen film last week, I thought I might try again this week. Especially because this one has the PERFECT role for Shahrukh. Oh, and it is also very VERY long. And not necessarily good, I just wrote myself into a plot hole and it took a while to write myself out.
