Happy Birthday Ekta Kapoor!

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).

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me Today?

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.

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.

Upcoming Movies! Harsh is Back, so is Madhuri, and Badshah, and MY NEMESIS!!!!!!

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.
