I confess.

My most anticipated movie? Is Bollywood's Salaam-e-Ishq a very loose interpretation/riff on Love Actually (it borrows the theme of interconnected love stories, but except for one of them, the stories are very different).

I am going to see it the coming weekend with [livejournal.com profile] smartylibrarian, so I bring you a picspam of the incredibly pretty people starring in it. For previous picspams of the movie, go here, here, and here. In fact, since I did do general picspams before, these are picspams of the three stories I am most interested in. (1) Kkamini and Rahul (Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan). Kkamini is an ambitious Bollywood item girl (a girl who dances a sexy number in movies) who wants to be a star and Rahul is the man who muddies her plans in a madcap fashion. (2)Tehzeeb and Ashutosh (Vidya Balan and John Abraham), an inter-religion newly married, professional couple (she's a Muslim, he's a Hindu) who face tragedy (I know spoilers and am looking forward to this story the most). (3) And Raju and Stephanie (Govinda and Shanon Esra), a taxi driver who dreams of a 'blonde girl' getting into his cab one of these days and falling in love and a blonde foreigner who came in search of her scummy boyfriend.

[livejournal.com profile] missusk and myself watched Babul last night.

I had a better time than I would have otherwise by myself, because when it got too dull we could whisper-talk and ogle Salman and/or John in unison.

The movie? Uneven. Some lovely bits but the message didn’t work for me.

Babul spoilery thoughts )

We also watched Marigold. I can’t really say too much because it was supposed to be a preview, so all I will say is I thought it was cute and funny and Salman looked incredibly hot in it (especially while wearing white). The director had a lot of interesting stories to tell, my favorite being the fact that he scheduled a half-an-hour appointment with Salman at his house in order to try to sell him on the idea of the movie (starring in it) and, he says, he showed up for that half-an-hour appointment and left Salman’s house four days later. Heh.

The movie is supposed to release sometime in March, Stateside.

Yes, I am going to post about Battlestar Galactica. And I have more Farscape love. I also saw Baabul and need to post about it, as well as going to a preview screening of Marigold (OMG! Salman speaking English for two hours...I am d.e.a.d. from Teh Hot. I think I am hazy on the plot because I keeled over from the sexiness somewhere a few minutes in :P) and meeting the director who was all sorts of awesome and talked in a wonderful way about Bollywood (he is a total fan) and about his experience filming there and working with Salman (he did an intro to the movie, and took questions, and then there was a reception where you could talk to him). He was weird enough to refuse to give me Salman's phone number even though I really wanted to know why he didn't respond to all those letters I wrote to him in blood. I think [livejournal.com profile] missusk, who got the invite and invited me along, owns a piece of my soul now. Or something.

And I need to respond to my lj comments.

But it's late, I am tired so it will all wait for tomorrow.

So for now?

Bourne Identity rocks. And Matt Damon, who normally doesn't do much for me is all hot and sexy as he aaaaaangsts.

After reading more interview stuff with Salman Khan courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] fivil I bring you more 'he cracks me up' answers.

I gotta love Salman for being so random with the interviews.

Q: If there was just one film performance you could be remembered for, what would it be?

A: For none. I don’t want to be remembered as a film actor at all. I think it’s like the most vaguest, most ridiculous, most stupid thing that anybody would want to be remembered as. How I want to be remembered – actually once you are dead and gone, who cares?

Lots of more awesome Salman quotes )

And because I've been on a Salman kick lately, here is a whole bunch of stills from his upcoming Baabul with Rani Mukherji, John Abraham and Amitabh Bachchan.

Pretty photos )

OK. Jaan-e-Mann is LOVE. The plot involves Suhan (Salman) attempting to help Agastya (Akshay) woo Salman’s ex-wife Piya (Preity) but I can’t really sum it up at all.

If you want an excellent review by someone more coherent than I, go to:

http://brangan.easyjournal.com/entry.aspx?eid=3127230

My thoughts are behind the cut.

spoilery thoughts behind the cut )

I have also finished Kurosagi and now desperately need more. MORE.

Thoughts on eps 9-11 )

I also watched Korean Melodrama (movie) Millionaire’s First Love. Six words: break-dancing, cross-dressing Korean Nuns.

The movie is like A Walk to Remember on speed. It has all the plot twists of a typical Korean dorama: lost childhood love, terminal illness that leaves the girl as pretty as ever, school hi-jinks, an icy upper-class guy who is made human by the love of a simple girl, mother issues, childhood trauma, orphans, but at the crazy speed required to fit it into an under-two-hour movie. *bam* new twist *bam* another twist *bam* third twist.

I know I was supposed to be moved, but I was rather amused. In a very happy way. I didn’t get to know the characters well enough to feel bad for their angst, but I reveled in the deliciousness. The gorgeous kiss in the rain (he drops his umbrella). Her waking up in the hospital with him in the next bed saying he brought himself instead of flowers. His giving her a whole jar of ‘pills’ with messages of how much he loves her inside and she is crying and he tells her he told her not to OD on them and she sobs ‘I was afraid to die before I read them all.’ The bits with the cooking. The totally OTT but near to my heart scene when he runs through the woods and collapses on his knees and SCREAMS. Very HOT (btw, where else can I find this actor? He can cry silently and still look hot. Rare quality I prize). His holding her and telling her to come to him when she’s in pain blah blah. Lovely. But I hope that after the end he goes and falls for someone more robust next time.

I have a lot to blab about with Kurosagi which I finished and the cheesetastic Millionaire's First Love, but for now: if you like Bollywood even a little bit, GO SEE JAAN-E-MANN.

I just from Jaan-e-mann. It's almost 2 am here, so a long review will have to wait until tomorrow, but the long and the short of it is: I LOVED IT.

It's the best time I had at the movies in a good long while and is my number 4 Bolly movie this year, behind Fanaa, RDB and Omkara (and none of those three were a barrel of laughs). So delicious and delightful and tongue in cheek and not like any other Bolly movie I've seen. But it has what I couldn't find in Don: heart. In fact, while I have no desire to see Don again, I am already scheming how to make it to the theater again for Jaan-e-Mann.

Oh, and while a proper review is for later: Oh my God. SALMAN. Totally amazing. He really made this movie and I think this is (with Tere Naam, though that movie is quite different) his best performance yet. And a first: this is the first movie where I didn't hate a single piece of clothing her wore. Plus, he was dealing with a baby. And speaking English. OMG. Seriously, the man is FINE. Was drooling like a giddy teenager (and there was screaming in the audience when Salman first appeared so I wasn't the only one).

I mean, how can anyone not love a movie with a space scene, dancing midgets, mentions of hara-kiri, Salman doing Riverdance, and bagpipes is beyond me.

I giggled, I sniffled, I drooled. Jaan-E-Mann to Bollywood as Ouran High School Host Club to anime. If you don't know much about Bollywood, you'll probably enjoy it OK. But if you are a Bolly nut, you will be on the floor.

Guuuuh. Must watch it again really soon. And write a proper review.

[livejournal.com profile] klmorgan will back me up. Best. Thing. Ever.

Driving back and blasting Mars soundtrack felt pretty good, too.

It just hit me that if Veronica Mars doesn't get renewed, not only is four episodes all we are ever going to get, but that I won't see Logan and Veronica make up and make out ever again (for all I know, they go at it like bunnies in the season finale, but I doubt it, as it's not supposed to be a last ep or anything). Now I am getting really jittery. Does anyone know if there is anything like savefarscape.com efforts going on in VM fandom? Sort of writing to advertisers, writing to network etc?

I got Harukanaru in the mail yesterday, but after watching it for a bit put it aside because it's waaaay waaaaay too close to Fushigi Yuugi (though not in the particular way that you could assert copyright over, because otherwise Yuu Watase would be rich). Maybe later I'll give it another try. Dumm Dumm Dumm continues to be adorable though, and after seeing Madhavan with a mustache in one of the fantasy musical numbers (what temple was it? I want to go there), he is one of the rare men who looks better with facial hair than without. Yum. Can't wait to see him in Mani Ratnam's upcoming Guru, opposite Vidya Balan (Parineeta, yay!!!) and with Abhishek and Aishwarya. Better stop before this becomes stream of consciousness in the manner of James Joyce.

I've started on Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass and oh, God. Talk about overrated. I am 80 pages in and it's deadly dull. Lyra herself, while not an unrealistic child, is boring, obnoxious, and makes me want to smack her. Sorry, Pullman. It's not a good book. J.K. Rawling sleeps secure.

Cooked a Passover dinner yesterday and prepared a Seder, just me and Husband (I really ought to come up with less bland sounding nickname for him than this, for purposes of LJ. How about Col. K, if I am Dangermousie), which was fun. In case anyone is interested, besides things like haroset (for the service) which I made with apples, bananas, brown sugar and honey, I made baked Salmon with chili, pepper and soy sauce, a matzo variation on french toast known as matzobrai, and baked acorn squash with brown sugar and butter. And we got to light candles, which were dreadfully mismatched as they were out of my candle collection. And read in turns. It was wonderful.

Also, for anyone following it, who didn't see it on seven billion Bollywood news sources, Salman Khan is finally out on bail while his case (hunting endangered deer) is being appealed. Apparently, there were thousands of fans outside his home and, hilariously, when they couldn't deliver a cake to him, they decided to dump it on his car instead. ROFL.

And, because I am a pathetic fangirl, I have more pictures from Fanaa. 21 pictures, to be precise. Ready to be posted and I would love to. Or at least I was going to have pictures, if the stupid photobucket wasn't down for maintenance. Go to [livejournal.com profile] wasabi_girl's lj instead.

So instead, some yummy pictures of 'free for now' Salman Khan, whose URLs I have because I cross-posted them elsewhere.
