Well, this was an interesting movie! Really did not go in the direction I thought it would. More time spent on stories I thought would be quick, and less time spent on stories I thought would be long. If you want to be as surprised as I was you can read the “no spoilers” review. If you want to know what to expect in advance, for real, not just what the trailer says, you can read this. And of course if you’ve already seen the movie and want to join the conversation, you can read this.Continue reading
Luv Ranjan is such a FASCINATING artist!!!! I can’t think of anyone else who brings together such different sensibilities within one artist. And, in this case, within one movie! He didn’t direct, but he produced and wrote the script, and it is pretty clearly more of a Luv Ranjan movie than anything else. Really interesting, a film that is both a fun light sexy situational comedy, and also a drama about being a woman and being a man and being a family.Continue reading
My sister and I thought of this idea while talking last night, and even though it will probably have minimal interest for anyone else, I am still writing it up.Continue reading
Fun movie! Surprisingly fun movie, especially after all the misery that was Badlapur. We are back to the lighthearted Johnny Gaddar version of Sriram Raghavan. Definitely recommend it if you want something fun with a great cast.
If you are an Austen person, and somehow have not seen this movie yet, FIX THAT!!! It is one of the all time great Austen adaptations, perfectly captures the spirit of the original while moving it to a modern setting. Plus AR Rahman songs.
I am sure my regular Tamil readers are rolling their eyes a bit at this. But this is such a wonderful movie, and a great introduction for those of you who have been all-Hindi up until now. AR Rahman soundtrack, mixture of stars (Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam), and a great script based on Jane Austen. What’s not to love? (by the way, no Tamil on Tuesday this week because I am hoping to see Chekka Chivantha Vaanam in theaters and I will review it whenever I can see it even if the day doesn’t start with a “T”)
Raajneeti, Sarkar, and the original film, I have been on a bit of a Godfather binge (I also rewatched 1 and 2 over the past couple days). So now the inevitable final step, writing my own version.
More suggestions from you! Suggestions that also turned into reading recommendations for me, fun fun! Oh, and plot ideas for movies I really want to see made, whether the stories are translated out of the sci-fi realm or not.
It’s Nagarjuna’s birthday! What a wonderful day! So, I am going to be reposting all my Nagarjuna reviews for your enjoyment. Or for your ignoring, if you already read them on the first post and don’t care.
Happy Monday! I have a wee bit of a crazy week, so posting may be the slightest bit erratic. But today at least, I am at work with nothing else to do but respond to comments! So, lay your questions on me!
Okay, prepare yourself for a very very deep cut. This is my absolute favorite LM Montgomery short story. So, not an “Anne” book, and not one of her other lessor series either. And not even from the first short story collection Chronicles of Avonlea, but aaaaallllll the way in Further Chronicles of Avonlea. But it’s SO GOOD!!!! How can I resist I remake? And it is just crying out for Shahrukh.
What a fascinating frustrating movie! Based on a fascinating frustrating real life case. Which, I am sure, many people in the comments already know much more about than I do.
Well, this is news. Or maybe not. Salman has been sentenced to jail a lot, and then somehow it ends up not happening, so I just don’t know.
My first fanfic post was very long, had no SRK, and only had one story option. All of these things have resulted in the past in a lack of interest from the readership. So to make it up I am going to do something short, with a lot of options, and lots of SRK.
It’s Preity’s birthday week! And Urmila’s too! And both of them deserve to be working more, even though they are over 40. So, I have IDEAS!
More news!!!! Yaaaaaay! Lots of little things that are interesting to keep an eye on and see how they pan out. And of course Padmavat, the story that will never die.
Boy, after not much happening in October, the birthdays are coming fast and furious in November! Anyway, I can’t ignore Tabu!
What a fun movie! Sure, not all the jokes landed for me, but a fair number of them did. And the cast was clearly having a great time. And most of all, the filmmakers knew what they were doing! I could relax and let go and be aware that I was in capable hands. And to talk about that, I need to get into SPOILERS. Which kind of matter for this movie, so if you think you might see it in theaters, maybe read the No Spoilers review instead.
Two movie weekend! Secret Superstar Friday night, Golmaal Saturday afternoon. And it was So Much Fun!!!! Not a great movie, not by any means, but a very fun silly movie. I liked it, the two young men sitting behind me liked it, the big family sitting in front of me liked it, and the little boy of the family really really liked it.
Part 2! Another 9 movies Shahrukh could make next, age-appropriate, different from what he has done before, and I at least would enjoy watching all of them! (part 1 here)
Next week I get down to 11, right? So I can go back in depth instead of these shorter ones? That will be a relief. This week though, another series of really short kind of idea sketches, since I have to do a full 18.
