Silly Sunday: Leader of the Pack, Indian Style

Happy Sunday!  This post is much later than usual because I have had a very busy day.  Pleasant, but busy.

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.

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!

Silly Sunday: Fairy Tales Remade, 12 Dancing Princesses with SRK and Swara Bhaskar

Well, I am spending the day in bed, as promised in my post yesterday.  Life is too difficult, and the world is too cold and rainy, best to stay under the blankets with Dog Hazel snoring in her big pink dog bed at my feet.  And in that soothing easy mood, I will also right a soothing easy FanFic, based on the very first stories I learned and loved, fairy tales.

Silly Sunday: Mother’s Day!!!! Let’s Flip Some Scripts

Happy Mother’s Day!  I already put up a song post, and I was going to do a post on stories that haven’t been done before, but then I started thinking about it and instead did a post on unexpected mothers.  Which means I was still looking for a theme for this week and I have chosen…..GENDER FLIP!!!!  What famous father roles could/should be played by mothers instead?

Silly Narrowcasting Post Warning! Recasting Brooklyn 99 With Indian Actors, Something NO ONE is Interested In

I already did a very long detailed take down of Bharat Ane Nenu this morning, including an overview of the Indian Constitution and it’s deeper social meaning, I’m exhausted, and I know at least one of you also watches both B99 and Indian film, so I am going to indulge myself with a fun easy recasting post.  Plus, the news just broke that B99 was canceled, so the time is ripe for an Indian spin off.

Silly Sunday: Movies For Anushka! Reunion with Ranveer, New Jodi With Ayushmann, and New SRK Movie!

Once again, you did the work for me!  At least partially.  For Anushka’s birthday, we were talking about who we wanted to see her with in her next movies, and that started me out with thinking about what those movies would be like.
