Simple Ranking Post: Which Love Story Type Do You Like Best?

I know, the SRK ranking posts are well-nigh impossible. This is a simple one that came out of the discussions we are having on my earlier post about the DDLJ type of love story. It got me thinking about other kind of love stories and I am honestly curious which people like best.

Valentine’s Week Romance! Daawat E Ishq, Pari’s Other Overlooked Romance

I would say “why didn’t anyone tell me how good this movie is?”, but then there have been people screaming at me in the comments to watch it for months now, so I can’t really say that.  Anyway, it’s good!  Really good!  Running Shaadi good (my gold standard for overlooked brilliant little rom-coms).

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: Hindi Film Romance Through the Decades

I forgot about this post until reflects on life reminded me of it!  And now I think I will make it an annual tradition, to update and repost it on Valentine’s day.

Valentine’s Day!  Day of love!  And for that reason, a good day for a one of post just about love stories.  The two kinds of them, the socially relevant ones in which the romance is just a jumping off point for a broader social issue, and the fun fun fun ones that just make you smile.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Here Are Some Love Songs From Bad Movies!

(this is an updated post from last year) To celebrate this strange Valentine’s in the middle of the week, here are some strange love songs in the middle of movies that really shouldn’t have love songs.  If you follow a strictly Only Romances rule, you may never even see them!

New Give-Away Announcement! Will You Be My Valentine?

I have a very very very very very very very hard time promoting myself.  Which is why half the time my own family doesn’t notice me at the dinner table.  But I really really really really want more people to find my blog so I can talk to them and they can talk to me and we can be a nice community!

And I also want more people to find my book, so they will learn about Indian film and come to love it like we do, and join our nice community.

Since I will just never be able to promote myself, it’s not in my nature, I am going to ask you all to do me a BIG BIG favor and promote on my behalf.  And then I will love you SO MUCH, that I will just have to send you one of my custom Valentine’s cards in gratitude.
