Happy Monday! I had a very productive weekend, got my dining room set up, hung pictures, did a puzzle. And now I am trying to remember how to work and be boring.Continue reading
Three review day! I’ve totally lost track of how many movies/days I have left, but I feel like I need to increase my rate of review.Continue reading
Happy Monday! I have allergies like crazy, my weekend was way too busy, and it was one of those Mondays where I had to hit the ground running at work. Blargh!Continue reading
Well, the timing worked out perfectly on this one! I was all set to go 2-3 movies ahead to get to a Yashji film, and it turns out it was just about time for one anyway.Continue reading
This is in honor of Yashji because I think we can all agree he had TERRIBLE endings! Big picture they were fine, the right people ended up together and all that. But the specifics of how they played out tended to be “and then a plane explodes for no reason” kind of randomness.Continue reading
This is such a nice statement! Which is well, and carefully, written. Let’s all read it and be grateful that poor social anxiety Adi has a good way to express himself.Continue reading
Happy Saturday! I was so excited to get going this morning, I forgot to put up this post, so this comes to you from my phone in a parking lot.Continue reading
Oh boy! A straight up for realsies classic! Which also means that it is hard to find a good copy and they vary widely in length and quality and stuff. So, we will be watching the einthusan version, for consistancy.Continue reading
There’s the logical choice, the fun choice, or the choice of my heart. Such a CHALLENGE!Continue reading
Happy Wednesday! Today’s the day I move from my parent’s place to my place every week, so I have a kind of holiday feel, even though it’s really still middle of the work week.Continue reading
It’s Yashji’s birthday on Sunday! Obviously, we have to do something for him, and what better celebration than watching one of his films on Friday?Continue reading
I certainly enjoy Deewana and Chamatkar and Baazigar, but they aren’t like high quality deep classic things. Darr though, Darr is CLASSIC. A brilliant consideration of women’s powerlessness in the face of men who want to “rescue” her or “protect” her.Continue reading
This is such a good interesting movie! I watched it years ago and yet I still remember it well enough to write a review, which is a sign of a very good movie.Continue reading
It makes no sense! I can barely get over the idea that Amrita Singh and Juhi Chawla would be fighting over Jackie Shroff (Even I have to admit that he does look good in a mustache), but why would Jackie Shroff ever be interested in Amrita Singh if he could get Juhi Chawla? She is so clearly superior!Continue reading
Forget Shahrukh, this is an amazing Juhi role and Juhi performance. She goes from feeling safe and happy, to feeling frustrated because no one respects her fears, to feeling trapped because no one is letting her confront her fears, to finally taking back the power for herself.Continue reading
Yashji! I love him. And I’ve already written a lot about him for his birthdays and such. Let’s see if I can come up with something new!Continue reading
I was getting ready for bed and suddenly remembered I hadn’t done a Sunday ReRun. I’ve got a Yash Chopra post going up tomorrow, so seemed like a good time to go back to Silsila again.Continue reading
Isn’t that nice and specific? These are not the best directors, or even a fair cross-section of directors, they are just Directors I Like. And you can’t judge me for any of them, even Puri Jugannadh, because there is no accounting for taste.Continue reading
This is nice, I can do a repost for both Shahrukh Summer and Katrina’s birthday. And we can consider how we all feel about this movie, still as passionate as before or has time weakened the pain?Continue reading
This movie is so frustrating! So much good, and so much ANGRY MAKING. Not as bad as Jab Tak Hain Jaan, but not as good as it could/should be. Ugh, Yashji! Why you gotta disappoint me this way?Continue reading
Happy Shashi’s birthday!!!! What a wonderful day, and what a wonderful week, a Shashi review every day! Starting with Kabhi Kabhi, a multi-starrer where Shashi is easily the best man on screen.Continue reading
Happy Wednesday Shahrukh Review day! Aw, only one left after this. That’s sad. But, it has given me a chance to crank through some of his films that I hadn’t gotten around to addressing before.
Happy Saturday! I’m on vacation, so I missed yesterday’s Friday classic post. And posts will be a bit sparse for the next few days. But I’m gonna make up for it by doing a stone-cold classic, which is also holiday appropriate, for the random one-off Saturday Classics post.
My favorite Yashji and Amitji’s film! Not the best one, that I know, but my personal favorite.
