Ramesh Sippy Week: Seeta Aur Geeta Recasting/Rewriting Ideas for Modern Times! (Plus Bonus Andaz with DipVeer!)

Seeta Aur Geeta is the only Sippy film that can really be remade. Remaking Sholay is obviously impossible, and the other films fall into that fuzzy area where they are fun for what they are, and all the little character beats and stuff, but if you try to recreate it, it would all fly away and nothing special would be left. Like, I love Zamaana-Deewana, but remove the orgasm song, and Anupam Kher’s drag scene, and all you’ve got is a really weird plot about boring young lovers.

Silly Sunday: Little Women as a Dark Romantic Drama! Laurie is Evil and Amy is Gay

Silly Sunday: Dark Reunion for Rani and Shahrukh, Charlie's Angels in India, and Akshay Gets His Come-Uppance

Random mixture of ideas today, I know most people don’t read these, but for those few of you who enjoy them these thoughts were too good to resist. Especially a movie where Akshay gets what’s coming to him. You can skip to the end if you just want to read that one

Silly Sunday: 5 Christmas Movie Ideas in 3 Sentences Each for the Indian Market!

I have seen sooooooooooooooo many Christmas movies in the last few days. And now I really want to spend Christmas in a small cheap to film in town in Canada.

Silly Sunday: My Favorite Christmas Movies Remade in India! White Christmas, Best Man Holiday, Frozen

Ready for a silly silly indulgent post? But whatever, I have now both wrapped and mailed all my presents (meaning I am better than all y’all!!!!), so I can afford to be indulgent.

Netflix Serieses for Shahrukh! Red Chillies, Take These Ideas Free of Charge!

Having another lazy night, eating popcorn and watching BBC mysteries while the dog sleeps. It’s one of those days where it is so cold outside that once you get inside, your body goes into hibernation mode. Anyway, this means it is a good time for me to do a nice cosy little post, the ideas we have crowdsourced for the Netflix family series that Shahrukh should make in order to have a nice work-life balance while still keeping his face in front of the world in a non-controversial way.
