Silly Sunday: Knitting Fanfic!!! In Honor of Visiting My Sister (Including Shahrukh Sexy Sweater Story)

Happy Sunday!  Much later than usual.  Because I am visiting my sister and I was busy learning how to crochet and stuff.  Which brings me to this post!  In honor of my sister industriously knitting away next to me, and our conversation on the TGIF post of the lack of nice handmade sweaters in the world, a knitting themed fanfic post!!!!

TGIF: By Popular Request, Manly Men With Chest Hair

See?  I listen!  You have a lengthy argument about the olden days when men were men and chests were chests, and I provide you with images!  I considered a fanfic, but I can’t come up with a plot that revolves around chest hair (something 101 Dalmatians inspired about fur coats?).  I’m sorry!  Even my imagination has limits.

Hindi Film 101: The Khanna-Kumar-Kapadias, a Small Family With Big Stars

Well, there was no over-whelming consensus on my voting post last Thursday as to what to do next, so I think I will pick the Khanna-Kumars.  Partly because I started Dimple’s story and never finished it with the Kapoors, partly because I am in love with Twinkle and Akshay after their Koffee appearance, and partly because Rajesh Khanna was a very big deal and you should know about him!

TGIF Post, Men in Shorts: Who Wore it Better?

I’m liking this, having permission on Friday to just put up a super silly post to start the weekend off with a laugh.  And this one, like the last one, was suggested by a conversation with a commentator.  Moimeme mentioned a collection of men in shorts pictures, which seemed like a brilliant collection to have!

Ghayal Full Summary! So you can be ready for the sequel!

Ghayal Once Again comes out tomorrow!  I am not terrible optimistic about it.  But just in case it ends up getting great reviews and revitalizes Sunny’s career and all that, I thought you should all know more or less what happens in Ghayal.

I watched Ghayal, while also answering emails and doing dishes, about a week ago.  My memory may not be as good as usual, but I think I can remember the general details of most scenes, and some scenes I remember real well.  So, let’s see how I do, and if I can manage to do the whole thing in one post!

(UPDATE: Summary finished!  Read part 2 here)

Movies coming out this Friday: Trivial Trivia

Ghayal Once Again (which has been talked about for months) goes up against Sanam Teri Kasam (which I never heard of before today) this Friday!  Who will win!  Who will lose!  I will make a guess but I have no idea if it is correct!

But I do know the random trivia related to these films which I am about to drop on you is correct and, I think, interesting!

Sunny Post: Hero: Love Story of a Spy Ending

As I explained in part 1, I’ve been in kind of a Sunny mood!  Not like I am feeling particularly happy (the opposite in fact, winter sucks and work sucks and Christmas is over), but in a mood to watch Sunny Deol movies.  So, I started with The Hero: Love Story of a Spy and then I walked back to Jeet, and then all the way to Manzil Manzil.

In case you are also in a Sunny mood, but not feeling Sunny enough to actually watch a film, here is a complete synopsis of the whole second half of The Hero: Love Story of a Spy.

Sunny Days/Sunny Deol: The Hero: Love Story of a Spy part 1

I have been on a bit of a Sunny Deol kick lately, not sure exactly why.  Possibly it is just my brain playing tricks, because it is overcast and disgusting where I live and I just want it to be “Sunny” in my apartment somehow!

Speaking of homonyms, a friend’s little sister pointed out that “Sunny Deol” sounds exactly the same as “Sunnydale” where Buffy lived.  Which is true!  And just strange!  Is it possible Josh Whedon is secretly a 80s Indian action superfan?

Anyway, I have just watched 3 Sunny movies, none of which are worth a full recap, but each of which is worth a quick summary hitting the high points.

(second half of this film covered here)
