Here is a mv for my favorite Bollywood movie ever, Veer-Zaara:

MV )

I have just realized something. My two most anticipated Bollywood movies this year are Om Shanti Om and Saawariya.

And they come out on the same day.

OMG.

What to do? Which to see first? Should I just move to the movie theater? What?

What is additionally complicated, this is the weekend I might well be out of town so I won't see either until week after.

Argh.

SLB, please PLEASE move Saawariya. Your movies are usually a powerhouse, but it's going to get slaughtered by Om Shanti Om because it's Shahrukh Khan in a romantic role, and I don't think there is anything that can beat that. Worst case, both movies are going to kill each other.

Btw, The soundtrack for OSO is one of the best in years. BY FAR.

I so missed seeing SRK in a romantic role (I adored Chak De India but there was no romance and Don was a total actioner. I really like Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna but it's over a year since that, and it wasn't a romantic movie: it was about adultery. It's been since Paheli! Though if he never made another romantic movie after Veer Zaara, I shouldn't complain as this was the best romantic movie I've ever seen).

Oh, and the other Bollywood-of-the-period movie, Khoya Khoya Chand is coming out in October, YAY!

Oh, and in case you are wondering, here is the entire Ajab Si from the soundtrack, with basically every bit of the footage we have from the movie so far:

And here is the same song but with less footage:

I am leaving today to go on vacation to Scandinavia and won't be back until next Sunday. Net time will probably non-existent when I am there, so this is one large catch-all post.

Pretty excited though. Also, since I only have one small backpack (we are going to 17 billion places and lugging suitcases is unappealing), I solved the reading problem by printing out a bunch of books from an on-line library. That way I can throw each page away once I read it :)

So. First topic? The super-awesome Korean drama Time Between Dog and Wolf. I am only on ep 5 but I read spoilers through 14 and OMG. Seriously. Could it get any better? Also, have the makers been reading Lymond or what? Vague spoilers ) He better have a happy ending and get therapy and live happily with JW and have cute kids. Or else. Seriously, all that angst and hurt with no happy ending will be horrible. The poor woobie has suffered enough.

On that note, here is a huge picspam of episode 4, the first one where hurt/comfort really reaches crazy levels: there is cuteness on the beach, and his capture and torture, and rescuing, and a bed scene and...LOVE.



Enter here for the pics )

Hmmm, what else? I know. Bollywood movie. One of the ones I am really looming forward to is Khoya Khoya Chand with Soha Ali Khan and Shiney Ahuja. Not only do I love both of them to bits, but the story, apparently, is set in the Bollywood of the 1950s (!!!!!). It is the story of two talented people. 'There's an actor-director (Shiney Ahuja) who liberates an actress (Soha Ali Khan) from the stranglehold of a powerful actor (Rajat Kapoor), and then begins to use her himself. In the end, he realises the folly of his ways and atones for it.'

I looooove movies about movies, and period flicks are even better. And if it's a love story? JACKPOT. Plus, the trailer looks incredible. Here is the trailer.

Plus, the pics are adorable.



a cornucopia of pics )

Last but not least, watching Bednaya Nastya indirectly reminded me of a book I like but haven't reread in a while. It's one of Dumas' less-known works, The Fencing Master, but it was translated and in print in the USSR because it was about the Decembrist revolt (short summary: a bunch of aristocrat officers revolted on death of Alexander I and demanded reforms. It was suppressed, the leaders were executed, and the rest to Siberia).

Book blather )

ETA: I lied. I have a book rec, too. It's Wuthering High by Cara Lockwood. I don't read YA really often, but this is priceless. It's about a 15 year old Miranda who ends up being sent to delinquent school. Turns out the school is being run by ghosts of famous authors. It's snarky, and funny, and the heroine is adorable, and I like the little lit allusions.
