Manmarziyaan Review (SPOILERS): It’s All About Taapsee’s Heart

Oh boy, spoilers time! For me at least, there is nothing more stressful than a love triangle. I am always worried that the wrong couple will end up together. If you want that stress removed, you can read this and know how it ends. But on the other hand, a lot of the entertainment of the film is not being sure how it will end and trying to guess. So if you want that entertainment, read the No Spoilers review instead.

Manmarziyaan Review (No Spoilers): An Anurag Kashyap Movie I Actually Liked

I am so glad I saw this movie!  It meant driving for over an hour there and back and spending hideous amounts of money on the tickets (I do not understand the release strategy at all.  Why only one theater, and only the most expensive theater?), but it was exciting and different and most of all, just plain GOOD.

Sanju Review (SPOILERS): They Told the Story They Wanted to Tell, Truth Be Damned

I’m back!  6 hours of sleep, and now I am refreshed and ready to move on to the SPOILERS review, after having already written the No Spoilers review.  Which will be super fun for me, having just spent a month learning in detail everything about what “really” happened in Sanjay’s life (you can read that here).  And therefore knowing just what this film changed.  Which is EVERYTHING.

Lust Stories Review (SPOILERS): Female Desire Takes Center Stage

A day filled with reviews!  Both Race 3 reviews are done now, so I can circle back and finish the SPOILER review for Lust Stories.  However, I would encourage you NOT to read this until you watch the Netflix series.  Partly because the films are so open to interpretation, they deserve to be watched with fresh eyes and your own decisions made about them.  Instead, just read my No Spoilers review and then come back here.

Silly Sunday: Karan Johar Sequels!!! Part 1, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham Kabhi Khushi, and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Hota Hai

What fun Karan Johar’s birthday week is!  So many wonderful options for theme posts.  This is a very very very long one.  So long, that I had to split it in two parts, and it’s still really really long.  Be warned!

Raazi Review (SPOILERS): Patriotism Which Kills the Host

This is an actual excellent film, and a very fun watch.  It doesn’t really matter if you know what happens, you can still enjoy watching it play out, but if you like being surprised and having edge of your seat thrills, maybe wait and read the No Spoilers review first, and then this one after you have seen the movie.
