To my dismay this film keeps getting pushed back, most recently I believe it’s to be released on October 16th.

Starring Ritesh Deshmukh as "loser" Aladin & The Big B as Genius! (The date has changed since the poster release...)

So THIS is why Pappu can’t dance:

Casually she says:

Casually she says:



Pappu Can’t Dance because he’s Abhi’s son from Bunty Aur Babli.¬† That’s it! I’ve unraveled the mystery!

Btw – I’ve seen this before, I just re-watched it this weekend.

Check out a favorite fan video made by Filmi-Girl if you don’t believe me:

Thanks again Filmi-Girl for a good giggle!

Movies, movies, movies!

I was recently inundated with some movies from both Netflix and the local library.¬† Hence, no reviews as I’ve been too busy watching them to get online to review!¬† Here’s a list of what I’ve seen in the last two weeks:

Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (Sad movie starring Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla (yay!))

Bommarillu (My first South Indian film – very good, however I hated the fact that Genelia D’Souza had a voice over . . )

Life…In a Metro (An interesting movie.¬† It kind of follows a recent trend in movies from all over the world that focusing on many different people through a six degrees of of separation kind of lense.¬† Shilpa Shetty was ok, Kolkana was lovely and I loved Irfan Khan – he was just too funny. Again.)

Gadar (A film about the separation.  This one has a happy ending though!)

King Uncle (A silly movie starring Jackie Shrof as an angry man who ruins his family only to be opened back up emotional by a young orphan named Munna.¬† Shah Rukh has a smaller role in this quaint film, but it’s nothing to write home about. Although I wish I had screen capped the opening because it was very creepy and inappropriate for such a child friendly film.¬† I red and black lense zoomed in and out on Munna yelling “King Uncle!” in a creepy audio warble.¬† Eee!)

Koi. . . Mil Gaya (re-watched this one – it’s a favorite!)

1947 Earth (Not a big fan. Typically if it garners attention from major film critics/awards I don’t like them.¬† Who knows why…)

Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (AnotherAamir Khan and Juhi Chawla film – this one much more fun and I saw many similarities to Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic in it.)

Bluffmaster (Abhishek is very charming as a con artist who finds out he’s dying.¬† Priyanka is, well, Priyanka…)

Raja Hindustani (LOVED this movie – just not the missing subtitles during the songs. I HATE when they do that to us not blessed with fluent Hindi skills)

Kabhi Alvida Naa Khena (Karan Johar + Shah Rukh + Rani + Abhishek + Preity + Me = Love.  Bas)

Black (Rani as a Indian version of Helen Keller and Amitab-ji has her “tee.”¬† It was very western in film style and setting, but I still think it was good.¬† It proves Rani can blow her younger competition out of the water and that she deserves to still get good roles.¬† I abhore the fact that she is stuck playing roles that make her seem “old” – she isn’t that old!¬† Give the young 30-something actresses in India a chance to shine and break through the stereotype PLEASE!)

Humraaz (Akshaye Khanna & Amisha Patel play in this movie that coined a new term for me – Pretzel Bag.¬† Matlab: This movie has more twists than a bag of pretzels! Goes along with my other rating: Yawnie – a movie that is deathly boring…)

Dor (A pleasantly surprising¬† film staring Ayesha Takia as a young widow who must face her own anger to help another woman save her husband.¬† Gul Pang is lovely as well and plays a beautifully strong and independing thinking woman not seen much in most films.¬† Dor earned Ayesha a lot of praise and I strongly suggest seeing this movie.¬† I’m a fan of hers, I think she has a great charm to her and I wish she hadn’t decided to stop acting when she got married…)

::dregs through her brain:: Did I forget anything???¬† I don’t know.¬† Hopefully not.¬† But probably so.¬† I have Yuva, Mughal-E-Azam, and The Inner/Outer World of Shah Rukh Khan waiting at home, as well as Traffic Signal and Kaal to pick up at the library.¬† The fun never ends!¬† I think I need to see what’s floating around the world of Korean/Japanese/Chinese cinema again too.¬† I have too little time!
