Friday Post: RIP Suchitra Sen

Sad news this morning: Suchitra Sen has passed away. She seems to have had a difficult life but I hope she found some peace. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

A wistful song to start the day… they don't make songs (or films or actors) like this anymore. That fountain going off is far more erotic than any bump-and-grind club song could ever be.

After the reaction to Saifai, the festival at Aligarh has canceled the Bollywood performers but they will be performing at an annual police fundraiser.

----

Open Magazine speculates that Chiranjeevi was behind the suicide of Uday Kiran.

Ruh-roh, producer's son Shiv Darshan gets a satisfyingly stinky review for Karle Pyaar Karle:

The lead pair Shiv Darshan and Hasleen Kaur add to your misery with their irritating presence. While Shiv tries hard to act like a macho movie star, he merely looks like a Tarzan clone on a heavy dose of testosterone (he even does the monkey dance and growls in practically every frame), and the leading lady Hasleen tries very hard to do a Poo – we mean the act Kareena Kapoor (not yet Khan) did in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham – but falls flat on her heavily padded bra.

Heh. Shiv, meanwhile, explains that it's "easier" to get a film as a producer's son. "Easier" than what, he doesn't say--easier than falling out of bed, perhaps?

Saifu is in Kashmir, shooting for Phantom. I'm quite curious about this film.

Hrithik returns to the Bang Bang sets in Shimla. (PLEASE KEEP HEALTHY, DUGGU!)

I am not on board with all these filmmakers jumping in front of the camera. Anurag Kashyap is totally insufferable these days. No wonder Kalki took off.

----

What am I even talking about. The ONLY thing on every self-respecting Bollywood journo's fingertips today was: THE HUG. Add another chapter to your Three Khans fan fiction, boys and girls! What will happen when Aamir finds out what's been happening behind his back. *cue wonky organ music*

----

What is this? A club song?! How novel. What a great thing these "Hindies" do for the art of cinema. I mean, it's so different from the "trash" I get accused of viewing.

----

KK singing for Adhyayan Suman in the creepiest film of the year: Heartless.

Oh, KK, I wish I could get you better work. If I could, I would. I love your voice.

----

Amit Trivedi should stick to doing these modern sounding songs. He does them so well!! Leave the Lootera period stuff to other people, Amit, and stick to what you do best.

Forget the hug with SRK, Salman hugged Vivek Oberoi! It took 11 long years but he's finally been publicly forgiven XD

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
