So… Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka looks interesting! God, I love the sound of Tamil. I wish somebody around here offered classes or lessons but nobody teaches it!
Anyhoo, reviews are shitting all over Kill Dil. I can't decide if that's good or bad. I'm pretty sure I still want to see it. My frenemy Mihir Fadnavis says there are "too many" songs (I almost always think there aren't ENOUGH songs in films so this is potentially good) and complains that there is homoerotic tension (also something I enjoy) then says "unfortunately it doesn’t come down to the unintentionally funny, disaster zone like Shaad Ali’s previous effort, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom." See, I thought JBJ was boring, nowhere near "unintentionally funny." See what I mean? All the negatives could well turn out to be positives for Filmi Girl. Other charges I've seen are "predictable" and "potboiler" which aren't deal breakers for me, either.
I'll decide for myself if and when I get to see it.
But, it's been ten years but I'm STILL NOT TIRED OF SONG PICTURIZATIONS. More, more, more!! I love song picturizations. I wish all films had more of them.
And the more junior artistes the better, imho. I mean, forget stupid CGI and fancy stunts, I'd rather the money spent on hordes of junior artistes for a couple of big production numbers.
Remember this one?? Oh, man, a 1990s Akshay-a-thon just always sounds like SUCH A GOOD IDEA but time, time, time… I wonder if a lot of these older films are on youtube. That would make an Akshay-a-thon much easier. I should check… for science… I mean I have about a year to watch them in preparation for Akshay in Karan Malhotra's Brothers--WHICH IS GOING TO BE EPIC! I mean I don't think anybody has gotten a modern HINDI masala so right in recent years as Karan Malhotra with Agneepath. Am I wrong? Wanted, Ghajini, etc. are Southern-influenced; Dabangg was excellent but it was still kind of stylized and retro; I love Rakesh Roshan but he's makes an old-fashioned style film. Ah, there's Vicky, though with Dhoom 3 and Tashan. So, Vicky and Karan Malhotra, then.
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.
