Remember how I was so sick yesterday I had to put up rerun posts? Keep that in mind, it may have made me a bit irritable.
Two big Tamil trailers came out today (say that ten times fast!). I am slightly more excited about one than the other, because it is a slightly better edited trailer and also has Nivin Pauly. But the other one is pretty darn good too. Most of all, they are both challenges to the Hindi dominance of everything.
Karan, Shahrukh, and other people all tweeted the trailer at the same time late last night. Which is interesting on its own. But also, the trailer is kind of good!
Okay, Aamir, you’ve won me over. After seeing that teaser over and over and over and over again, the trailer added enough new to it that I am interested.
Mad at me, but still willing to help, having sensed that my blog views were way way down over the past few days, he provided me with content. See, even when we are in a fight, he still cares.
Yaaaay, another cute trailer! Which basically gives away the entire plot! But it’s a good plot, so I’m fine with that. Really, most of the time I think if you don’t want to see a movie once you know the plot, then it’s a baaaaaaad movie. We should enjoy films for more than just the plot, there are the characters and the dialogue and everything else. And this film is definitely going to be about the characters. (oh, and it was posted with subtitles right from the start, so I think this is a clear sign that Shahrukh is reading my blog and loves me)
Yaaaaaay! The trailer is out! And I missed it last night because I can’t understand time changes! Karan announced when it would be released, but I thought it would be early this morning, not late last night. Oh well. It’s here now!
Yay, Rani’s back!!!! I can’t decide if all these 90s actresses coming back is because the 90s really did have the best batch, or because the industry has finally started to accept women over 35 as more than just mothers. Probably a combo of the two.
Well, this is not what I was hoping for from a Bhardwaj movie! He is stylish, sure, but it is style that overlays real hardcore traditional messy Indian emotions. And Indian settings, gritty villages and remote farms. This thing though, at least based on the first trailer, is all style over substance. Luhrmann after Strictly Ballroom.
If I were Aamir Khan, I don’t know if I would have released a trailer for another movie today. On the one hand, it gave a little extra buzz around the name “Aamir Khan”, so that’s good for the Dangal release. But on the other hand, the buzz isn’t about Dangal, it is about something else. A risk! Oh, and also a trailer for Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy House. That’s the one that’s looking to the past, Aamir’s trailer is super cool and modern.
SO GOOD!! And not just because the eyeliner/dorky 80s glasses is really working on Shahrukh. Well, that’s part of it. But there’s a lot of other good stuff too!
I somehow missed this one. Maybe nobody tweeted it? Hardly seems worth posting, seeing as the actual movie is coming out shortly. But Shahrukh is so cute! I just have to share!
So, this is the movie that everyone is like “The best movie of all time!”? So far, I’m not seeing it. A good movie certainly, probably a very good movie. I’m just not having my mind BLOWN by what I am seeing.
The full Ae Dil Hai Mushkil trailer is out! And it’s basically the same as the two song teasers we already saw! No big surprises.
Why is this not bigger news? Out of all the people I follow on twitter, only industry analyst/journalist Taran Adarsh tweeted it. And it only had like 20 thousand views on youtube when I last watched it. Maybe the content is making Adi look for a slower roll-out?
So, Baar Baar Dekho trailer finally dropped today, which made me take a look at a couple of other trailers for movies I am less excited about that have been out for a while.
Like 5 different people on my twitter feed re-tweeted the Mirzya trailer this morning, so I thought I better watch it, even though I didn’t know any of the stars. So glad I did!
Mohenjo Daro trailer! I know what I am doing on Independence Day! Although, I think some of the history might be a little slippery.
