Sunday ReRun: Mubarakan! A Big Fun Stupid Movie With a Mostly Great Cast

Are you all mad at me for making you watch this dumb dumb movie? Or are you grateful that I challenged you to watch a super entertaining movie? Or did you all ignore this film and no one will read the review?

Sunday ReRun: Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga, A Happy Family Masala Movie

I really hope a lot of you are watching this on Netflix! It is such a happy good feeling family movie, I feel like the world will be a better place if more people watch it.

Sunday ReRun: Loins of Punjab, Still the Best Movie on the Indian-American Experience; At Least, in New Jersey

I just watched this movie for the 4th time, and it is still So. Good!  And such a hard sell!  I’ve seen it 4 times partly because people will only watch it if I sit next to them and force them to.  Because the title alone really isn’t enough to sell it.

Sunday ReRun: Daawat E Ishq, the Tragedy of the Father of the Bride

I would say “why didn’t anyone tell me how good this movie is?”, but then there have been people screaming at me in the comments to watch it for months now, so I can’t really say that.  Anyway, it’s good!  Really good!  Running Shaadi good (my gold standard for overlooked brilliant little rom-coms).

Sunday ReRun Review: A Gentleman! Now that Stree Has Everyone Appreciating Raj & DK

Okay, let me throw some titles out there for you: Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  Desperado. Johnny Gaddar.  Burn After Reading.  Dishoom.  Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.  Bang Bang. Get Shorty.  Jhankar Beats.  Now, are you smiling?  Are you happy?  Are you remembering good times?  Or are you rolling your eyes because these are all stupid worthless fluff films?  If you are one of the first people, this is the film for you (and also, we should be friends).  If you are one of the second people, this is not the film for you (and we can still be friends, but maybe should only watch classic movies together not new stuff) (spoilers review here)

Sunday ReRun: Mom! Sridevi’s Last Role, A Heroine Who Was Worthy of Her Talents

If you haven’t seen the film and want to see this movie as it was intended, DON’T READ ON.  Read my non-spoiler review instead.  It’s one of those movies that works best if it surprises you.  But if you have seen it already (or never plan to, or just hate surprises), then you can read on.

Sunday Classic ReRun: Sadak! Let’s Talk About the Original Before the Sequel

This is a bit of an odd duck for a “classics” post.  It came out only 25 years ago, and isn’t as well remembered as some other films from the same era (Saajan, Khalnayak).  I hadn’t even heard of it until it came up in an article on Sanjay.  And then I watched it and went “wow!  This is a brilliant movie!”  So I am here to sing its praises, just in case you haven’t run across it before.

Sunday Film School Rerun: My Name is Khan, Shahrukh Khan’s Take on Autism, and Activism

This is a very good deep review that did not get many readers or comments the first time around. So this time I gave you a weeks warning, so you could rewatch the film and know when the review is coming. Let’s see how it does this time! I don’t care as much about the views, but I really want to read your comments. It’s an important film to me, and I want to know what other people think about it.
