I wrote this review a long long time ago, and it isn’t as good as the film deserves. So I did quite a bit of rewriting before reposting it, fun for those of you who remember the original post! There’s still something new for you!Continue reading

I am going to give you all a gift! This is a movie that is just pure joy, happiness in a little Amazon Prime package. You should all watch it, and then thank me.Continue reading
I say “rerun”, but I actually did quite a bit of rewriting of this review, so it’s mostly totally new. Hopefully you like it!Continue reading
This is honestly such a brilliant movie. I would recommend it to anyone, that is, anyone who was serious about film and popular culture. It’s not a “fun” watch, but it is a challenging and ultimately rewarding watch.Continue reading
Reposting this review in honor of the De De Pyaar De release! And now that I have seen both, I can tell you that De De Pyaar De is the more progressive film, but this movie is the more fun movie as a whole.Continue reading
Such a good movie! I keep waiting for it to become a cult classic, for more people to discover it, but so far it seems to still be forgotten by the world. But I will try to help by making it my Mother’s Day pick!Continue reading
I think I may have finally figured out what I like about Gautham Menon films. It took a while, because they seem like the kind of film I shouldn’t like, perfect heroes and opaque heroines. But with this film, I think I have cracked it. Oh, and also, Ajith looks goooo-ooooood with grey hair! Which is neither here nor there, but I felt it should be acknowledged.Continue reading
This is a very silly, very fun, very stupid movie. It may not be as brilliant and complex as some other films, but by golly the time just flies by while you are watching it! Oh, and this review needs some formatting fixes, I’ll do it soon, I just want to throw it up quick now before I take the dog for a walk.Continue reading
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?Continue reading
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.Continue reading
Swades! It’s really good, a bunch of you have seen it multiple times, I don’t feel bad reposting this review while I am out having fun with friends in sunshine.Continue reading
This is such a great movie, for once the kind of amoral no excuses whatever it takes attitude of the action hero, shows up in a tiny little girlContinue reading
Happy Sunday! And let me remind you of one of the all time greatest Hindi films, and definitely the best exploration of how “true love” is bad and selfish.Continue reading
Totally did not plan to have this movie re-reviewed the same week as Magadheera! But didn’t that all work out nicely?Continue reading
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.Continue reading
Next Sunday, a fun one! A very irreverent one from the 70s, great comedy, great casting, great everything.
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).
I just reviewed this movie a few months back, but it’s on Netflix now and it is very pleasant, so I thought I might as well bring out the review again.
I don’t have a great idea for this week, so I am going with an easy happy idea. A short pleasant film that is already on Netflix.
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)
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.
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.
I didn’t really think about it, but each of the Sunday movies so far have been very different from each other. Poignant sprawling story of modern America, a little romance, a historical epic, and now a thriller. I’ll really have to struggle to think of a new option for next week!
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.
