Discussion Post: Who Do You Have A Girl Crush On?

Do we all understand the concept of “girl crush”? Someone you aren’t sexually attracted to, but you think they are just really REALLY cool and you want to hang out with them and eat ice cream and be best friends.

Talent of the 2010s, Female Edition, Sonam to Sara

I already did this for the boys, but can the girls be far behind? And yes, “girls”. Most of these actresses started out before they were 20 and in my book that means you are still a kid.

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

Thanks Alisa! You saw the new American Little Women and complained about it which inspired me to rethink my Indian remake (already wrote it once here) when you suggested that one of the Little Women should get herself a Little Woman.

2010 Week: I Hate Luv Storys, Remember When Imraan Khan Was Charming?

He’s still charming I guess, but he’s not like professionally charming. After his 2 year paternity leave (which I continue to find RIDICULOUS) he doesn’t seem to have much interest in returning to work. But back in 2010, I had a crazy crush on him and he was a delight.

My Sick Day Viewing, Fascinating True Story With Anupam Kher Playing a Role-BBC Miniseries Mrs. Wilson

This is amazing! Ruth Wilson playing her own grandmother in the story of her grandfather who was both a scoundrel and a brilliant actor, probably where Ruth got it. Anyway, I have to share the story in case you don’t want to watch it and also because it is so fun to imaginary recast in India. And also my brain isn’t working because Sick, and recasting is easy. Also, SPOILERS! Avoid if you like limited BBC historical miniserieses midcentury true stories/Ruth Wilson

Female Films Week: Veere Di Wedding, a Triumphal Happy Female Film

Reflects on Life was just talking about how usually “female films” means some depressing issue based movie and it is rare that they are simply movies with female leads. This is a movie with female leads, happy and rich and worrying about love affairs just like in male lead films. And I thought we deserved something happy after Neerja.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga Review (SPOILERS): Anil Kapoor is the Perfect Man, and the Perfect Father

I really liked this movie. And you should watch it without SPOILERS, if you can (Kirre Ranin! This means YOU!), read this other review instead. But if you really really can’t see it and want to know what happens, you can read this. Honestly, it’s such a slow happy family movie, it’s more about the experience than the details, I can’t “spoil” it

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me, The Week of My Father’s Birthday?

Happy My-Father’s-Birthday week!!!!  To celebrate, I am going out of town.  It was the only weekend I could visit my sister between now and, like, May.  But I will try to make up for it and be a good daughter by making sure you are all VERY AWARE that it is my father’s birthday this week.  66!  That’s a semi-big deal!  Or at least, very cool to be matching digits.

Khoobsurat Review ReRun: The Best Disney Fairy Tale in Hindi Film

I watched Khoobsurat for the 4th time last night (I missed it in theaters, but have seen it 4 times on DVD after a friend told me I HAD to watch it).  It’s just as good as it ever was, but it’s also a whole different experience watching it having just seen Neerja.  In all sorts of ways.
