Sunday ReRun: Koyla, Shahrukh’s Best Action Role

Okay, pretend the mullets don’t exist. This is a really good movie! And it gives Shahrukh way more action and excitement and kind of classic “hero” stuff than any other film. All without losing his essential feminism.

Sunday ReRun: Bhavesh Joshi, the Film That Made Me So Angry I Couldn’t Write

It’s funny, usually when we think of Superhero movies, we think about being inspired or excited or hopeful. But that’s not why someone would become a vigilante, they would become a vigilante because they are just so ANGRY.

Sunday ReRun: Sangam! The Classic Raj Kapoor Film I Want Shahrukh to Remake

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.

Sunday ReRun: Dishoom! So Silly, So Fun, So Dishoom-y

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.
