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.
