Silly Sunday: TV Show Remakes!!!!

This is just because I have been watching Cheers and now I can’t get the idea of a remake out of my head.  So I had to dig up a few more TV show options as well, just to round out the post.  Feel free to give me suggestions in the comments for more I could use if I missed your favorite!  Especially since my TV taste trends towards the classic.

Silly Sunday Fanfic: 4 Real Life Stories Shahrukh Should Play Onscreen

Last Sunday of 31 days o’ SRK!  Very sad.  Although I am also kind of excited about being able to try out new non-SRK fanfic if I want next week.  Anyway, for the final post, 4 real life stories that Shahrukh should play.  And since it is just 4, I go into great great detail, unlike me very brief posts for some of the 11 last week.

I am sure you will all have Thoughts in the comments about what I should have included and did not, along with what I included and shouldn’t have, and various other changes I should have made.  And that’s fine, think of this as just a starting point!

Silly Sunday: 18 Movies Shahrukh Should Make Next (Part 1)

Next week I get down to 11, right?  So I can go back in depth instead of these shorter ones?  That will be a relief.  This week though, another series of really short kind of idea sketches, since I have to do a full 18.

Silly Sunday Post: Happy 25 Days to SRK’s Birthday! 25 Characters in Need of More Story

I was tempted to do one long post for one of these, but that would break the list pattern.  Plus, be harder to write.  So some will be longer, some will be shorter, but there will be a full 25.  And that will give you all a lot to talk about in the comments.

Silly Sunday Post: Wholesome! Family Film Options

It has come up every once in awhile that there aren’t as many really family type films as their used to be.  And it has also come up that the past few Sundays have been extremely sexy.  So, no sex!  Just fun family times this week!  Which probably means my view count will suffer, but oh well. (if you want sex, you can check out last week’s post)

Silly Sunday Post: Akshay Finally Gets the Girl, Mrs. Robinson in India, 101 Dalmations Men’s Chest Hair

3 random disconnected posts, one that is just to assuage my guilt for always being mean to Akshay, the other that came up in the comments from Karthik (congrats Karthik!  Your first fanfic suggestion!), and the 3rd was something I said as a joke in the TGIF post but now I kind of want to do it for real.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Men Surrounded By Strong Women (Shahrukh, Varun)

There was a comment on last week’s post, by Asmita I think, about liking it when men are surrounded by strong women.  Which sent me down this whole rabbit hole in a direction I don’t think she anticipated, and I have come out the other side with a simple plot in mind that can be applied to any hero.  I am excited!

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Best Friends Who Fall in Love, Juhi and Shahrukh and Anushka and Prabhas

Hmm.  After the full flush of creativity last week, I don’t really have much this week.  I need ideas!  Give me help in the comments!  Your favorite movie, book, actor couple anything to start me off.  For instance, this week I am starting off from a casual comment DilDeewana made about how she loves Emma for the you’ve-been-standing-in-front-of-me-all-along-and-I-just-realized-I-love-you! trope (also, DilDeewana, make sure to watch Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na if you haven’t already).  So, let’s work with that!

Silly Sunday Post: Sexy Shahrukh Options

A total indulgence here.  Now that we have seen Shahrukh play an entire film with the sexy cranked up to 11 (full JHMS coverage here), I am toying with ideas for other films he could be in with a similar effect.  You know, because the story requires it of course. UPDATE: Following suggestions in the comments, I added more sexy SRK options here

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: What If Our Favorite Historical Characters Were Allowed Happy Endings? Rang De Basanti, Asoka, Mughal-E-Azam

This is semi-inspired by a conversation I had in the comments on the Rang De Basanti post with Shaily about what would need to change for Siddharth and Soha to end up together.  Essentially, the whole movie except for the characters.  Which got me thinking about all the Indian historical films that I really wish could have historically inaccurate happier endings.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Happy Endings For All Our Losers in Love, from Mandira Bedi to Varun

We all know that Hindi film loves a love triangle.  And usually a blameless love triangle, two good options and one of them loses out through no fault of their own.  So, I thought, why not give a happy ending to all of love’s losers?  And, just to make this more fun, why not cross streams and give happy endings to losers from different films? And why not make an easy post in which I rapidly run through a whole bunch of different plots without a lot of details?

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Jab Harry Met Sejal Week! Classic Odd Couple Films That Need a Remake

This is a hodgepodge one.  You probably won’t know all of the films I use, but skim the whole post, there should be one buried in there that you do know.  Odd couple screwball comedy adventures are such a stable of film that there are lots to choose from, from all different eras.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Friends! I Can’t Resist Remaking It, Even If It Requires a Massive Rewrite for the Indian Audience

This is such an indulgence of myself, even more than my Golden Girls post.  But I have now finished my dozenth rewatch of the entire run, and I can’t resist.  Partly because I want to add songs and stuff, but also because I really really want to tighten up that plot.  And make Phoebe end up with the guy she is meant to end up with, not Paul Rudd.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Persuasion! The Perfect Mature Love Story for Shahrukh, Rani, Saif, Kareena, etc.

Remember way way back when I asked for suggestions/requests for Sunday posts?  Pride and Prejudice (here) and North and South (here) were tops.  And then neither of those posts ended up getting many views, so I sort of veered off that list.  But I don’t have any fresh ideas this week, so I am veering back to it and taking the 3rd one down, Persuasion.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Jab Tak Hain Jaan, I fixed it!

I was hoping I could do this on Yash’s birthday or half birthday or something, like I did for Karan, but there’s no special occasion I could find, and I had this post idea poking around in my head, so heck, I’m just going for it.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Rocky Movies! For No Particular Reason

I looooooooove the Rocky movies.  I came to them late, my father had me watch the first one with him when I was a kid, but then I really got into them in college.  It was after my Indian period had started, but the Rocky series was one of the few American products that I could still enjoy.  I don’t necessarily want them to be remade, because they are so perfect already, but it’s kind of a fun thought experiment anyway!

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: In Honor of Karan Johar’s Birthday, All of His Movie’s Endings Fixed!

I love Karan.  Love love love.  Both as an artist and a public figure.  But I have to admit, he has a problem with endings.  Every film either drags on too long or ends too soon.  There’s always a feeling of “wait, that’s all there is?” at the end of it.  And so, as my birthday gift in advance to him, I am going to fix all that! (real birthday post will go up in a couple days on the actual birthday)

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: North and South! The Perfect Crossover Plot, Now that Bahubali Has Broken Through the Northern Markets

Happy Sunday!  A week ago I put up a post asking for suggestions/votes for classic novels to be turned into fanfic.  Pride and Prejudice was the first choice (thus last week’s post), but North and South was a close second.  Which also inspired me to finally watch North and South.  And it really is perfect for a remake!  I barely have to change the plot at all, just streamline it a little.

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Pride and Prejudice! 2000s Version

Happy Sunday!  By popular request, Pride and Prejudice!  It was the top choice for most readers, followed by North and South.  Now, technically, Pride and Prejudice has already been remade, but Bride and Prejudice really doesn’t give the story the remake it deserves.

Silly Sunday Voting Post: What Great Book/Film Should I Do Next?

Hello All!  I got such a nice response to this weeks Sunday post on Jane Eyre, partly because it was a topic that a lot of you felt deeply about and had a lot of background for.  So, I am going to take advantage of this momentum and let you vote!  This is probably a one time thing, I won’t be doing it every week, so make sure you take advantage!
