To nobody's surprise, it's the gazebo scene between Shahrukh Khan and Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.



Even though I love this movie, I do not love it enough to put in my Top 15. But that scene! That scene is insane!

Bonus is my favorite song picturization, also between Kajol and Shahrukh. This time from Kabhi Khushi Kabie Gham. I first saw this years ago and nothing has yet beat it.

Trailer for My Name is Khan (you can skip SRK talking before and after if you want but I like ogling him so...)

Upcoming MNIK, about an autistic Indian Muslim living in America. But it could have been about puppeteering and I would not care because of who is in it.



At last. At last. At last.

My hugest, biggest on-screen obsession pairing, Shahrukh Khan and Kajol are together again at last! It has been too long since their previous, all the way in 2001 (!!!)

Baby Mousie is getting a sitter the night this comes out.

And you know what? Fox bought it so it means this will be in mainstream theaters!!!!!

(Thanks [livejournal.com profile] wasabi_girl1 for the link)

Re: BOF. It's no secret that by now I am basically in it for Ji Hoo (I want him to get happiness whichever way), Woo Bin's amusingness, and Yi Jung/Ga Eul.

So imagine my delight when I found the following picture on [livejournal.com profile] hydkorea.

Deals with the ship I actually care about )

How very Bollywood romance location of them. Dare I hope this version will actually give them *gasp* a happy ending?

Seriously, it so makes me think of the field in DDLJ's Tujhe Dekha Tho Ye Jaana Sanam:



Now I shall amuse myself by imagining Yi Jung and Ga Eul dancing and singing :P

Even though I knew it was happening, somehow it is never real until you see visual proof:



Yes, indeed!

!!!!!!

It is Shahrukh Khan and Kajol, arguably the biggest Bollywood jodi ever, back together again after seven long years, on the set of their new movie, My Name is Khan.

Oh GOD.

I think I will die in the theater.

This post is to post two of my all-time favorite Bollywood songs from two movies that share that super-coveted 'favorite Bollywood movie number 1' spot, and have for years: a super-hit Veer-Zaara made in 2004 and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge made almost a decade yearlier, in 1995, and one of the hugest Bolly hits of all time.

(Coincidentally, they both star Shah Rukh Khan. Funny thing is, he became my favorite Bollywood actor because of those movies, not those movies became favorites because I was a fan of him).

Despite the fact that the movies are rather different in plots and situations, other than the forbidden love aspect, these two songs are basically about the same situation: the girl who is about to be trapped in an arranged marriage discovering that despite any logic or hope, the guy she loves has come a huge distance to find her, without being sure she loves him back, just because the chance of finding out is worth it.

First off, 'Tujha Dekha' from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, starring the arguably biggest hit couple ever: Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. In case you are unfamiliar with Bollywood, for which DDLJ is one of the few ur-movies, the plot is as follows: the tongue-in-cheek, Westernized Raj and Simran, who is from an incredibly conservative family, fall in love when they meet during a Eurorail trip, but at the end she leaves to go to her arranged Punjabi marriage in India. They haven't even exchanged "I love you's" at that point (though it's clear they are mad about each other) but one morning she wakes up to find out that Raj has found where she went and flew all the way to India to find her. (I did not spoil the movie for you, we are halfway in). Which is where this song comes in. I have a confession: not only is Tujha Dekha my favorite Bollywood song of all time, the moment she runs into his arms and the moment he goes down on his knees is my favorite movie in any Bollywood movie, ever, of all time. I have rewatched that scene and that song too many times to count.



The second song is 'Aaya Tere Dar Pe Deewana', from Veer-Zaara starring Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta (I think it was the last full-romance movie SRK did and probably will do, but what a way to go out!). Veer-Zaara is a super-romantic story of a very forbidden love between an Indian pilot and a Pakistani aristocrat. Oh boy, is it forbidden and angsty. When I saw it in the theater, grown men with mustaches were crying next to me (I was bawling as well, I confess). In this song, Shah Rukh has come all the way to Pakistan, which means he has to resign his military position which has been his life, after a phone call by Preity's servant on the mere chance Preity might want him, and not the aristocratic man she is betrothed to. The thing I love most about this scene? The same thing I've loved the first time I've seen it: he comes to the shrine and he stands there, but he makes no move, no hint, no sign that he knows her, even, even when she starts walking towards him, until she puts her arms around him. Because it must be entirely her choice: he would never force her or push her or do anything that might expose her in front of her family unless she desires it.



Happy watching!

How could you not want to watch U Me aur Hum?

It looks so adorable:



And it stars real-life couple (married with a kid, yay!) Ajay Devgan and Kajol.

AWWWW.

I am seeing it no matter what the movie is about, because Kajol is my favorite Bollywood actress (who does too few movies, darnit!) and I will watch her on screen in anything. And I adore Ajay Devgan whose career is a bizarre mix of awesome art-house flicks (Omkara, Raincoat, etc) and lame-brained comedies, I assume to pay the bills for art-house flicks (though Masti was ridiculously funny). And is totally hot. Plus, they were adorable together in PTHHT.

Oh, and there is apparently more confirmation about the rumored Karan Johar movie with SRK and Kajol !!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to explode in the theater when/if that happens. My favorite jodi of all time back on screen together. First time since 2001 !!!!!!!!!! Playing a married couple. I am going to DIE. But I am not going to feel secure until the filming actually starts.

I am craving Remus/Tonks fic after Deahtly Hallows so started Fernwithy's awesome Shades, set during HBP. Yay. So good.

EEEEEE! Realized that I can do screencaps now and I really want to do screencaps of Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Date, with yummy angsty OTPing Takeshi Kaneshiro. Yes. Coming soon to a LJ near you.

Saw Hairspray last night. It was fluffy, contageously adorable film. I still prefer the 1980s version, but this was neat.

A whole bunch of trailers, but the only ones I remember are The Golden Compass and August Rush.

TGC: yawn. I tried reading the books and gave up, being bored with them, and also annoyed with the bratty main protagonist. Children protagonists rarely work for me. Mr. Mousie snarked that TGC is like the satanist’s version of Narnia and that makes sense, because I find Narnia boring too.

August Rush: it looks totally sappy and unrealistic but I don’t care. My brain has been rotted by kdrama, and I want! This is a story about an 11 year old music prodigy growing up in an orphanage who wants to use this music to find his parents. As many abandoned children do, he believes that his musician parents loved each other and loved him, and…because it is so kdrama, he is right, and the poor adult woobies (Keri Russell and Jonathan Rhys-Myers, all angsty and hot) have been searching for each other and/or him ever since. It’s going to be sap-fest, and I’ll love it.

Slightly more detailed summary from IMDB and trailer )

Also, I remembered reading about Tom ‘the loony’ Cruise being banned from filming somewhere in Germany, so I idly looked up what was the movie. And eeeeee! It’s Valkyrie, about some German generals’ unsuccesful plot to kill Hitler. This could be really good. I think TC is a lunatic, but I confess I like his movies.

In Bollywood news. How do you make me watch a movie about a girls’ hockey team when I loathe sports films? That’s how:

Reasons behind cut. SRK as the coach, basically )

And on another ‘SRK makes me faint’ note, here are stills from ‘Suraj Hua Maddam’ song with him and Kajol (got these from a SRK website). *swooooon* Still the sexiest song in Bollywood.



(yup, I prefer clean-shaven, with an OTP)

Multitude of gorgeousness )
