Sunday ReRun: Raabta! A Very Silly But Satisfying Movie

Totally did not plan to have this movie re-reviewed the same week as Magadheera! But didn’t that all work out nicely?

Another FanFic from the Comments, Queen Sequel: Rani and Oleksandr Forever! And Happy Ending for Kedarnath

It’s Saturday, why think?  I’m just gonna do a quick post based on a discussion in the comments, and also because I love writing fanfics (it’s like stretching after running).

Kedarnath Review (SPOILERS): Oh Good, the Old Brahmin Man Survived, He’s the MOST Important

OH THIS MOVIE!!!!!!  Mad me so angry at how they ended it!  But I only got angry because I cared, the rest of the film was good enough to make me care.  If you want to know what happens and why I am angry, you can read the rest of the review.  If you want to go in fresh, you can read the No Spoilers review.

Kedarnath Review (No Spoilers): A Great Debut for Sara, Until the Very End

This is a hard review to write, because I don’t want to spoil the movie, but then on the other hand I need to be give you a clue of what kind of a film it will be so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to watch it.  I guess I will just say that I really liked the opening and the middle, but the ending did not work for me AT ALL.  So if you are able to enjoy a movie in pieces, can separate out sections, you will enjoy it a lot.  But if you can’t block out bits and pieces, (like me), then the bitter ugly bit is going to end up ruining the rest of it.  So, BE AWARE!

Songs From Upcoming Movies! 2.0 and Kedarnath

Fun fun!  Song songs!  I don’t know how these movies will be, but the songs are really lovely.  Too bad it’s after Thanksgiving so I am not allowed to listen to anything but Christmas music until the 26th (allowed by myself, I have very strict rules for me).

TGIT: Post-Valentine’s Blues, We Get a Bonus Photo Post This Week!!!!

I was going to do a bonus fanfic, but judging by view count, the TGIF posts are more popular, so I’m doing that instead.  And a nice Valentine’s one, for us to recover from all the romance and coupliness of yesterday.

Starter Kit: Rising Male Stars

I could give you an elaborate reason why I felt the need for this post, but there really isn’t one besides “my views are down thanks to Thanksgiving and I want something that will get us all talking”.  So, starter kit for male stars!

Raabta Review (SPOILERS): Magadheera, But Totally Different

As you know from my no spoilers review, which already went up, I LOVED Raabta.  It was not at all what I was expecting.  I wasn’t even going to see it, but then my sister was in town, and watching a bad romance film in theaters is kind of the perfect sororal activity.  And it turned out to be a good romance, instead of a bad one!  Which is even more perfect for a sororal activity.

Raabta Review (NO SPOILERS): The Romantic Fantasy We Have All Been Craving!!!

I say “all”, but really it’s just a subset of the commentators here.  But a strong subset.  Which includes myself.  I can enjoy an action film or a well-made drama, but there is just something about the big swoony romances with songs and impractical plots and lots of chemistry between the leads.  And this film definitely delivers!

Byomkesh Bakshy! A Movie My Brother-In-Law Actually Likes!

So, back at Thanksgiving 2 weeks ago, I saw this movie for a second time.  And I am just now getting around to writing about it, because Christmas and work and Dear Zindagi, and it’s all been a very stressful time.  While I was visiting her for Thanksgiving, my sister and I had a wonderful time watching sappy romances, but it is always a bit of a quest to find a movie that would suck in my brother-in-law.  Bahubaali worked wonders last year, and this year I did the “just keep us company for the first 5 minutes” trick with Bakshy!, and by ten minutes in, he was asking us to pause it when he ran into the kitchen for more pizza, because he didn’t want to miss a minute.

MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (SPOILERS!!!): Review with plot details, Somehow the 1st Half Where “Nothing” Happened Was The Most Interesting Part

I put up my non-spoiler review up right after I watched it, but I wanted to kind of let the film percolate before I attempted my detailed summary/spoiler review.  Which might mean that a miss a scene here or there, but I should have a better idea of the overall message of the film.  Oh, and I let it percolate too long (or not long enough?) so this is going to be too long and end up split in two parts.

News Round-Up: Sushant Singh Rajput is Single! Woot Woot! Also, other stuff about Aamir, Sanjay, and Emraan

Sushant Singh Rajput is single again!  I am sure many many people care about this news, but I am probably the only person who cares about it exclusively because of Byomkesh Bakshy!  I just really liked that movie.
