Daler Mehndi! He has a very specific sound to him, which can be extremely powerful when used in a limited fashion. Probably why he never quite broke through in Hindi film, he’s really only good for one song per soundtrack.Continue reading
(This is a reposted post from last year) There is another big birthday today, but I am following a “if you can’t say anything nice” policy and ignoring it. But that means Sukhwinder gets a day all to himself! And he deserves it, he has worked very hard for a very long time.Continue reading
All of a sudden after years and years of no biopics, they have become a plague on the Hindi industry in the past few years, especially sports biopics. So I am going to list out all the ones I can remember and describe their main themes, and we can decide which is the best one! Or at least, which you think is most interesting. And this will prepare us for the upcoming sea of more sports movies.Continue reading
Happy 4 days to Thanksgiving!!!! Or three days? How do you count these things? Anyway, soon!
Well, thanks to the recent glut of sports biopics, lots of options for celebrating this one!!!!
Gulzar, Indian film’s old man of poetry. Who used to be Indian film’s young man of poetry. But time moves on, and now he is the lyricist and dialogue writer with the longest innings in the industry.
Bad week all around! Sanju is slowing way way down, Dhadak is not a hit (no matter what everyone is saying), and Soorma is a big flop. Bad week to own a movie theater.
Since Ticket pointed it out in the comments, now I am suddenly very aware of the large cardboard box in the corner. Oh well, it’s worth it if it keeps the books my friend lent me in order and undamaged until I return them to her. And also reminds me to finish them so I can get them back. She let me the entire run of the Discworld Witches series! That’s a big deal! I shouldn’t forget.
Does that headline work? I don’t really care, I just love the wordplay even if no one else gets it. The point is, Soorma is not doing great. Not excitingly awful either. Just “meh”.
I already put up my No Spoilers review, and this really is a good movie, so I would recommend skipping this review until after you watch it, if you are able to watch it. The trailer gives away the general outlines of the plot, but there is a lot more to it which deserves to be seen with fresh eyes, not spoiled by me.
This was such a nice movie! Not a perfect movie, a little confused in some parts, felt like the connective tissue was missing a bit, but overall a very nice movie.
Happy Saturday! I am pre-scheduling this because I am going to sleep in! And then go see Soorma. And then take a nap. The perfect day.
Trailer fiesta!!!!! Fanney Khan just came out, the others are older but I haven’t written about them yet, and I want to know what you all think of them.
Ready for a bunch of inspirational stories? They were down, they were hopeless, it was all impossible, and then against the odds they rose up again!!!!!! I am going to be so sick of inspiration by Independence Day, hopefully I can still enjoy Gold.
More news!!!! Yaaaaaay! Lots of little things that are interesting to keep an eye on and see how they pan out. And of course Padmavat, the story that will never die.
