It came up in discussion that female lead films tend to be really dark. Which is true! But why should we watch a bunch of women be miserable and punished all the time? This is a post for us all to share recommendations for happy female lead films. And I’ll start with some of my favorites.Continue reading
Reflects on Life was just talking about how usually “female films” means some depressing issue based movie and it is rare that they are simply movies with female leads. This is a movie with female leads, happy and rich and worrying about love affairs just like in male lead films. And I thought we deserved something happy after Neerja.Continue reading
Happy Wednesday! Doggie and I are very happy to be almost to the weekend. It’s been a tiring week.
Happy Friendship Day!!!!! And Kajol’s birthday, it’s a busy day. Anyway, here is a nice little video post with some friendship videos, and you can leap in with your suggestions for more in the comments.
You may say Farah or Zoya has more power, and maybe if you just look at the films they produced, okay. But if you look at all the stars and stories and production changes Ekta has done through film AND television, there is no contest. So, for her birthday, here are 18 reasons I love you, one for every hundred episodes produced of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi (1833 in total). (this is an updated and reposted-post from last year)
Happy Monday! I made it through my weird weekend, with a nice solid “I am just sitting here reading” 6 hours in the middle. And therefore, I am behind schedule again and Monday Malayalam will be on Wednesday or something. Oh well, at least I managed to scrabble out reviews for both of the new movies.
I’m gonna suggest you don’t spoil yourself for this one. Beyond knowing that none of the disappointing shallow views of female friendship that the trailer promised actually happened. No drunken fight to wait for, no jealousy over a man, not even an evil domineering mother. But as for what actually does happen, if at all possible, try to let it play out for you as it was meant to be played, just read the no spoilers review and save this review for after you have seen it on the big screen.
This is a very very very very very good movie. I had to jump through a lot of hoops to see it, and it was absolutely worth it. Congrats to Rhea and Sonam, they have made the perfect female friendship movie.
This post is also because I am looking for a nice light post to put up to cheer myself up because it has now been raining here for 30 hours. It was nice yesterday, when I could huddle in bed and watch the rain, but it’s not the same now that I am at work and have to shiver in my office watching the rain.
4 movies to talk about! In various stages, one a trailer, one a second song, one an announcement, and one starting to film. And I am interested in ALL of them!!!!
So many trailers today! And also, good buzz for 102 Not Out. Shoot! I was thinking about taking a week off from watching movies, or else going regional instead. Oh well, I probably would have wanted to see it anyway just for Rishi and Amitji’s reunion.
You’ve all probably already said everything you have to say, but if you feel like repeating it all over again, here is this space! Because I finally got around to watching the trailer, and now I can talk about it.
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.
Just assume that health, family, home, blah blah blah are taken as a given. Here is the important stuff I am thankful for this year!
