Lamhe: Sridevi’s Most Brilliant and Most Famous Performance

Lamhe is where Sridevi showed she could play mother and daughter, lover and friend, woman and girl, all in the same picture.  Truly, no other actress could have pulled off this feat. (full index of Sridevi films I have covered here)

Shahid Day Continues! Kaminey, Shahid’s Best Picture (I Think)

Hello Again! Another repeat as I continue my day of doing ten million things up to and including getting my annual emissions test for my car. So I am using the time to repost all my Shahid reviews, in honor of his birthday tomorrow.

Happy Shahid Day! Dil Maange More, on Netflix So You Can Celebrate With Me!

Shahid doesn’t really deserve a “day”, but my weekend is INSANELY busy this week, so I can’t write anything new, and his birthday is tomorrow, so it seemed appropriate to add him to my actor’s index list.  Heck, maybe now that Padmavat has taken off, he will finally reach the top of the industry and have the career he always promised to have but never quite achieved.

Shahrukh Hardtalk Interview, I Finally Got Around To Watching It!

Well, that was frustrating!  Is this what TV interviews are like?  Blech!!!!!  No wonder I never watch them.  Not even getting into specifics of this interview, just this strange sort of “gotcha” style of question and then not letting the interviewee actually answer, drove me crazy!!!!!  Why ask him a question if you aren’t going to let him talk and then respond?

Breathe Amazon Series Final 2 Episodes! (SPOILERS): We End With Hope and a Hero

And we are at an end!  No more charming-but-murderous Maddy, no more troubled-but-reliable Amit, no more police jeeps driving through the streets of Bombay.  Well, unless you want to watch one of the many many movies that involve police jeeps driving through the streets of Bombay.  I recommend Talaash! (part 1 here, part 2 here, part 3 here) Continue reading

TGIT: Thank You For The Retweets, Have a Maddy-Tovino-Unni Post

This is a very very very specific post.  Our nice commentator/friend Angie got Maddy to read and retweet my Breathe reviews, so in return I shall give her a nice theme TGIT post.  That theme being “here are all the men you like in a variety of outfits and poses”.  And then on tomorrow I will do a “normal” TGIF post that more than one reader will enjoy.

Aamir Day Discussion Post: Best and Worst Film, Your Votes?

A couple of people responded to me on twitter arguing that Parampara was not, in fact, Aamir’s worst film and giving other options.  And they were all valid!  The man has been in A LOT of bad movies!  And also, a lot of good movies.  Anyway, what do you think?  Best and worst?

Breathe Recap/Review (SPOILERS): Episodes 5 and 6, Opposing Forces Find their Places

Happy Thursday!  Sometime around midnight tonight (I haven’t figured out the schedule exactly yet) the last episode of Breathe will come out.  I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a second series at some point, so the story may not necessarily be over, but at least the first part will be resolved. (part 1 of my coverage here and part 2 here)

Andaz Apna Apna: Is It Just Too Irreverent to Be Popular?

Happy Aamir Day! No reason besides my being swamped at work and needing to fall back on reruns.  And also wanting to pull together an Aamir index to go with my Shahrukh and Hrithik and Salman indexes.  So, today you get a bunch of Aamir reviews I wrote and posted already being reposted!  Fun fun fun!

Talaash: A Very Strange Love Triangle and a Wonderful Picture of a Marriage

Welcome to the beginning of Aamir Day!  No real reason, I just want to give him his own index just like Shahrukh and Hrithik and Salman, and now’s as good a time as any.  I’ll be re-posting his reviews as I dig them out, and then ending by posting a nice Index for him.  Also, a good time for me to finally get around to giving Talaash the post it deserves.
