SALMAN TRAILER!!!!! Tiger Zinda Hai, and Salman’s Social Conscience Zinda Hai Too

Maybe it was because I hadn’t had breakfast yet, but this was an action film trailer that actually made me tear up a little.  Okay, almost certainly it was because I hadn’t had breakfast yet.

Best Actor of 2016 is One You Didn’t Even Notice

I was debating who to give this to, Anushka or Alia or Shahrukh, and then I realized, just because I was thinking of them, that meant they were ineligible.  Because in every part I was very aware of who was playing the role.  No, the real best actor of 2016 is one who was in 4 of the biggest hits of the year, and you didn’t even realize it was the same person.

Most Middle of the Road Movie of 2016 (In My Opinion)

It’s a race to the middle!  And be warned, there is math involved in this calculation (blech, math!)  This is just the “editor’s choice” option, remember.  Go here to put in your vote for the readers’ choice for all 9 categories.  I’ll be tallying votes at the end of the week and putting up another series of posts for each category.

Happy Birthday Salman Khan!!! You are 51, but still the Youngest of the Khans!!!

So, earlier today, I posted the first 20 reasons I love Salman Khan (not as much as I love Shahrukh, but still quite a bit).  Here are another 20. (UPDATE: This is the post I put up in 2015, but it’s still true today!  I’ve just cleaned it up a little)

Happy Aamir Week! Raja Hindustani, and Aamir With a Beard!

Dangal is opening 2 days early in America, yaaaaay!  So this is my second to last Aamir post, and I get to start Salman week 2 days earlier than I thought I would!  Also yaaaaay!  Since I am getting close to the end, I’m going to pull out a nice interesting movie, Raja Hindustani!

News Round-Up: Ajay’s Next Movie, Anil Will Work with Arjun, and Early Box Office for Dishoom/Late Box Office for Sultan

I’m really excited about these super early rumors for Ajay and Anil’s next, even though they contain basically no substantial content, so I am reporting them anyway!

News Randomness: Salman Gives an Interview, Priyanka’s Brother is in Trouble, and Sultan Holds Steady in 2nd Week

I’m a little late to the party on the biggest item here, Salman’s celebratory press conference in which he offered all kinds of juicy quotes and Anushka addressed the ridiculous “bad feminist!” arguments against her character.  Rediff has a nice summary of the best bits.  But, better late than never!

Quick News Report: Sultan in Overseas, Great Grand Masti Releases, and Shiney Ahuja is a Disgusting Idiot

Is that last really news?  I feel like the world at large has pretty much known that Shiney Ahuja is garbage for years now.  I mean, the other stories aren’t really “news” either-people like watching Sultan, they are sick of sex comedies, blah blah blah.  But this will probably be my last chance to post on news until the weekend is over (get ready for a weekend of Salman classic reviews!), so I thought I should grab it.

Sultan Part 7: All the Way to the End! Complete! Final! Conclusion!

Last bit!  Not because I’m so close to the end, but because we are coming up on the weekend and I can’t face carrying this thing through to another week.  So, if you want to know the end-end of Sultan, what happens to all the characters and how it happens, then read on!

Sultan Part 5: Things Are About to Get Really Really Really Sad

Is that a spoiler?  I don’t think so.  I mean, we are coming up on the interval, of course SOMETHING less than ideal has to happen, or else no one would ever bother coming back for the second half.

Sultan Part 4: My Favorite Song!

Part 4!  We have reached my favorite song!  I really liked the way it sounded when I was just listening to the soundtrack, and I ended up liking the visuals too.  Hopefully some version of the video will make it’s way online soon.

Sultan Box Office Report: Record Breaking, No Duh

We have no reached the point where if a new big Khan release DOESN’T break all previous records, it is considered a flop.  I say “big”, because I’m not talking about your Jai Hos, your Fans, or your Talaashes.  Just the ones with the major studio backing, thousands of prints made, huge international release, and family friendly crowd-pleasing plots.  Of which Sultan is certainly one, so its box office success was kind of taken as a given.

Sultan Part 3 of ?: So Many Songs!

Bumping along to part 3 of my detailed summary.  I like doing it this way, because that way I can remember all the little bits and pieces I thought of while I was watching the movie.  Because I am thinking of the whole movie again scene by scene.  If you just want a quick summary, you can check out my “SPOILER” review.

Sultan Part 2 of ?: Yay, Anushka’s here!

I’ve seen Sultan twice now, and looking at a possible 3rd time sometime this week, but for those of you who can’t see it, or can only see it once, or saw it and are trying to remember everything that happened, I am going to try my best to remember everything I saw and write it all down for you.

Sultan Full Summary Part 1 of ? (SPOILERS!)

It’s time to start my traditional full summary shot by shot and scene by scene of the movie I just saw in the theater!  Sometimes these can be incredibly long (like Fan) as I get distracted by backstory and metaphors and references and stuff.  And sometimes they can be really short, because there just isn’t that much to talk about (like Rocky Handsome).  In this case, I honestly don’t know how much I will have to say, so I’m just going to start and see how fast I go!

Happy Sultan Day!  I have my tickets already for the 7 o’clock show, planning to get there half an hour early so I can get a good seat.  But in the meantime, let’s have some Salman songs to get us in the holiday mood!
