Silly Sunday: Expansion of the “14 Plots to Take a Second Pass” Post! Kuch Kuch, Kal Ho Na Ho, Asoka

I was trying to come up with a new idea, but I just kept cycling back to yesterday’s post, so finally I decided to lean into it and write the additional ideas that were in my head.

Daily Hrithik-Tiger Shipping Post: Ideas for Other Movies They Could Be In Together!

Now that we have a new hit Jodi, we need to use it over and over again. At least, that’s how I feel. And I have ideas!!!! In case ideas are needed.

Silly Sunday: The Gay Love Scenes Missing from War, and bonus Hugh Jackman-Shahrukh Musical Romance

Filmikudhi and I wrote an amazing Hugh Jackman-Shahrukh romance with lots of songs, and on the other hand there are also the gay love scenes that it feels like must have been in War at one point and then some no-fun common sense person said that you can’t have an explicit love scene between Hrithik and Tiger.

One Off Speculative Post: Epic Historic Romances India Should Make Instead of War Films, Including Shahrukh as Jahangir in a Nur Jahan Love Story!

I never thought I would say this, but I am so sick of big battles! With horses and swords and elephants. Okay, I tell a lie, I will never be sick of elephants. But the other stuff, yes. Let’s have more historical romances!

Silly Sunday FanFic: Same-Sex Romances, Antonio Banderas and Shahrukh, SOTY as It Should Have Been

Do we keep coming up with same-sex romances because they are sexy, or because it is a gap that can only be filled by fanfic and not reality? Or both? Anyway, here are two more of those thingies.

Silly Sunday: Stories Inspired By Song Videos, “Bang Bang”, “Love is a Dare”, “Ishq Shava”, “Janam Janam”, “Rock ‘n Roll Soniya”

You ready for a silly lazy idea? I’m gonna take a bunch of songs out of context and invent the movies they should belong in, because they don’t quite work in the movies they are in. Feel free to jump in with more ideas in the comments!

Shahrukh Summer/Silly Sunday: Tweed and Sweaters Romance for Saif and Shahrukh, Middle-Aged Rediscovering the Spark Comedy for Boman and Shahrukh, Fun Wedding Farce for Shahrukh and Ayushmann Khurrana

I love it when you inspire me in the comments! I always come up with much better stories based on your ideas than I do on my own. Anyway, these are from the comments on the “what actor does Shahrukh have the most chemistry with?” post.

Shahrukh Summer/Silly Sunday: Tabu and Shahrukh Fun Comic Romance Adventure, Two Versions from Me and Emily!

This idea comes courtesy of Emily who requested a fun silly adventure where Tabu gets into wacky scraps and Shahrukh has to keep rolling his eyes and then coming in and rescuing her. And then she wrote a fantastic multi-starrer herself and let me add in a tiny bit myself. Oh, and we both ended up casting Saif, which is perfect since it was his birthday last week!

Women Directors Week Sequel Post: Sequels for Zoya and Reema, Gauri, and Tanuja; Luck By Chance, Talaash, Dil Dhadakne Do, Gully Boy, English/Vinglish, Dear Zindagi, Qarib Qarib Singlle

I’m still fighting off a case of the Mondays, and nothing cheers me up like fanfic! And this is fun fanfic, the ones where I don’t have to come up with characters and stuff, I can just piggyback on characters we already know and love.

Shahrukh Summer: Happy Endings for Sad Shahrukh Movies

I don’t actually think these are “better” endings, I just like happy endings, even if they aren’t true to the rest of the narrative. Every film should end with a marriage and a baby and a happy reprise of the title song. So in my headcanon, these are how these movies end. Happy happy!

Silly Sunday: Sequels! Dostana and B ‘n B Are Coming Back, Why Not Laaga Chunari Main Daag, Aaje Nachle, and Agneepath?

I love sequels. I always want to know what happened next and to whom. What about the kids? What about five years later or ten years later? Of course, usually it is more of a franchise than a sequel, taking the central idea and remixing it, but I can live with that too.

Silly Sunday! For Pride! Harsh Kapoor and Harsh Rane, Ranveer-Ranbir-Dips Love Triangle, Rajkummar-John-Vidya-Kareena Same Sex Quadrangle, Prithviraj-Tovino Village Romance, Aamir-John Abraham Long Time Lovers, and Arjun-Shahrukh (my favorite!)

Okay, I’m gonna be lazy and just use the stuff that came up in the comments of the discussion post asking for topics early this week.

Silly Sunday: The Feminist Versus the Underclass, Remaking a Doris Day-Rock Hudson Classic By Setting It in the Bombay Film Industry

We were just talking about against the grain readings and I realized that I had Lover Come Back stored on my TV, one of the biggest against the grain movies of Hollywood. And then I watched it and realized it hits that sweet spot of romance with social commentary all baked in that I like. Plus ten gabillion moments of “we all know that Rock Hudson is gay and are having a super fun time playing with the audience not knowing that Rock Hudson is gay”.
