Silly Sunday: My Recent Binge Watches Remade, Wings and Midsomer Murders and Miranda

Most of you have seen some to none of these, don’t care! For my own happiness, I am going to play with how they could be turned into Indian movies/TV shows. And I guess you should all watch them? If you like pleasant lowkey shows that leave you smiling and ready for bed, these are very good options.

Happy Father’s Day/Pride! Which of These Father/Queer Stories Do You Most Want to See?

It is too hot to think straight today (ha! straight!), not only can I not think enough to write a “real” post and have to fall back on fanfic, even with fanfic I can’t think it all through, I have to just start it off and leave it there for you to imagine the rest.

Silly Sunday: Street Dancer 3D, the Way It Should Have Been!

We watched it on Friday, which was super fun. But also we got all upset about the half done love story and I started thinking about how I would have written it to have a whole other second half that gave a more satisfying love story structure instead of the very light weight plot with a lot of dance competitions instead of relationship drama.

Karan Johar Coda: What Would Happen in Karan Johar Movies if Women Were Brave Enough to Say What They Think?

You thought we were done with Karan Johar, didn’t you? But no! I have one more thing to say that occurred to me while we were doing our Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham watch. And this thing will also, once again, give me a chance to rewrite the endings of Karan Johar movies which is my favorite thing of course.

Silly Sunday: Some NOT Gritty and Violent Mystery Serieses for Netflix! (Rosemary and Thyme and Midsomer Murders)

Shashi alert! Well, sort of. At least “Kendal Family Alert”. Let’s look at nice pleasant murder mystery serieses from the BBC, the kind where death happens without blood or mess and usually to unpleasant people we don’t mind when they day, and suggest that perhaps Netflix should stop making scary bloody rapey shadowed urban series, and more happy pretty countryside murders.

Silly Sunday FanFic: Let’s Write a Story Together! Part 4, Shahrukh the Elephant Loving Animal Rights Attorney and Tabu as the High School Teacher Hiring Him to Get Her Dog Back from Her Ex-Husband

Not “meet”, we already had that, but “meat”, the serious center cut portion of it all. Fun thing is, this is an Indian film we are writing, so we get the center cut here, and then the next post is the pre-interval finale, then the Twist, then the post-interval reset, then the second “meat” part, then the finale-finale, and then the epilogue. So many pieces!

Silly Sunday: Love Triangles! Pick Your Ending for These Romantic Tripods I Have Built! Shahrukh-Juhi-Aamir, Deepika-Ranveer-Anushka, ARK-Parineeti-Sid M

Still watching Hart of Dixie which does really good love triangles, and it has inspired me to try and see what I can come up with as potential Indian film triangles. Not easy ones where it’s a choice between love and duty, but ones where there are two viable “love” options.

Silly Lazy Wednesday: TV Shows Rewritten/Recast for India, Hart of Dixie, Single Parents, Bless This Mess

This were all recommended by readers, so I know at least SOME of you have already heard of them. And then there are like three of you that are fanfic diehards and will read anything, even if you haven’t heard of these shows. And heck, all of them are fun happy slightly romantic things, I want you all to watch them and enjoy them and if this fanfic helps promote them, great!

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.
