Huh! Really interesting week. The global markets are very unaligned, which is always worth a discussion. (as always, figures from bollywoodhungama)Continue reading
Same rules as the female post! Not the first film, but rather the biggest leap film, from unknown to known, or minor star to major star, or whatever it is. Before you ask, I’m not including Rajkummar Rao or Ayushmann Khurrana, because I feel like their stellar 2018s were just a continuation of their stellar 2017s, not a leap even higher.Continue reading
What an odd combo. Two actors who never co-starred, aren’t known to be friends, and aren’t even related. And yeah, it’s pretty boring. Best part of the episode is the Bahubali episode teaser at the end.Continue reading
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.
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.
Happy Sunday! This post is much later than usual because I have had a very busy day. Pleasant, but busy.
Okay Karan, I’ll let you make me stay up late one more night. I am so tired, but this can’t wait until morning.
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.
I’m back! From an incredibly hot drive to the theater, back to the sanctuary of my nice cool bedroom, with Dog Hazel stretched out panting on the floor. Time to start writing some kind of a review of this thing.
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.
Another review and another movie! I am being so productive this weekend. And this was a very different movie from Race 3.
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!
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.
Well, this was a shockingly good movie! I highly highly highly recommend it. Also, I am now in love with Vicky Kaushal.
