That's the thing, you know, what these movies can be good for. It's nice to enter masala world where evil can be defeated and rich assholes get thrown off cliffs and the little guy wins for once… it gives you a bit of courage to face the real world where occupying forces bomb schools and hospitals while claiming THEY are the victims here, not the children who are dying in the streets. *Ahem*
A couple things caught my interest in the industry press--Yash Raj English aka Uday Chopra's Golden Parachute is remaking Kahaani in English. This might actually do well, depending on how they remake it. I've always found shot-for-shot remakes to be pointless but plenty of other people refuse to read subtitles so… yeah.

Farhan Akhtar with the poster for Dil Dhadakne Do. My initial reaction is: WHO CARES ABOUT RICH PEOPLE SWANNING AROUND HAVING RICH PEOPLE PROBLEMS ON A CRUISE but I know it's Zoya and I know it was written by her and Reema so I'm trusting that she is going to extract some real human truths from rich people having rich people problems on a cruise, the way she did with rich people having rich people problems in Spain.
And you know? If characters get too annoying, as I'm assuming PC's will, we can all imagine the cruise gets stranded and the toilets stop working like what happened to that one boat last year.
