It’s Alia’s birthday! Which I have somehow never honored before so I have to write this very quickly from scratch. Let’s see if I can manage it!
None of these things have anything to do with each other, but none of them are really worth their own post either, so I am going to combine them all to have a decent sized post.
Yay, global figures are out! And, for the first time in weeks, there is an actual big name Hindi movie that I care about included.
2 industry news items today! One which is important in general for, like, society. And the other, which is very important for, like, ME!
Such a disturbing movie. Like, not sure if I can go to sleep tonight kind of disturbing. Very disturbing. But also very high quality.
Of course, this is all super early reports and blah blah blah, the real answer will come on Monday, but so far Udta is looking good!
Udta Punjab is coming out! Yaaaaaaaaay!!! I am so happy! And I know what I will be doing this Friday night!
Quick news update today, not really new-news, mostly following up on developing stories. Oh, and an interesting article about Shahrukh.
I already did a news post today, but thanks to the time difference, my morning (in America) post only caught the stuff from yesterday (in India), so now I need another one of the things that just happened!
The censor board doesn’t have a problem with Shakespeare, they just both happen to be in the news at the same time. Although I bet the censor board would have a problem with Shakespeare, if they were working in England in the 1500s! All that sexual humor, barely veiled political content, and bad language would NOT fly!
Most of these were released a couple of days ago, I just haven’t gotten around to watching them yet. Because I’m not terribly excited about any of them. So I am going to squeeze them all into one post.
I go to sleep, and twitter blows up with news! Being in the exactly opposite time zone as India is not good!
Yay! First looks at other movies! It’s like they are already preparing us for a post-Fan world! Although, hopefully, we won’t have to really face it until at least a month from now (a Shahrukh release has to stay in theaters at least 4 weeks, right?).
