[livejournal.com profile] filmi_girl and I went to see the Bollywood hit (apparently, the biggest opening ever) Bodyguard starring huge Mousie favorites Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor.

Kareena plays a rich girl who pretends she is in love with her bodyguard (Salman) to get him to loosen up but things spiral out of control. There are some gorgeous musical numbers, mondo violence, a surprisingly touching love story, a hilarious amount of comedy, and a scene in which a strategically aimed water pipe literally explodes the shirt off Salman's body.

Basically, I laughed a lot and swooned a fair amount - it was worth every penny of the ticket price. Best way to describe the vibe is that as far as I know, it is not a South Indian remake but it almost feels like it could be.

Have a gorgeous song from it:



There was also a trailer for RA 1, which I will watch no matter what because once a Sharukh fangirl, always a Sharukh fangirl, and when he came on-screen something funny happened to my insides.



Also, somehow, I did not realize that Kareena was playing his love interest in this. !!!!!! I've been obsessed with their on-screen chemistry since Asoka (which is probably my favorite Bollywood movie ever) so to see an encore...OMG dream come true!

And now I want to go and rewatch Asoka, especially all the scenes where he calls her 'my warrior' and teaches her to use a sword - skills she turns against him when, driven by her supposed death, he descends into emptiness and bloodlust and she faces him on the battlefield. OTPOTPOTP! It's so odd - in the latter half of the movie, once he turns into a monster, I hate him hate him hate him, but the moment he goes down on his knees before her, weeping and begging forgiveness, I find myself yelling "take him back take him back take him back!" Have a MV:



More MVs )

I think I am about to go on a Shahrukh binge. Also, I think I must make a much overdue Top 10 Indian Movies list.

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)

Dangermousie's favorite actor, Shahrukh Khan, walking the ramp with his wife Gauri, at Karan Johar's fashion show (what with directing, writing, tv show, and now fashion, when does Karan Johar have time to do anything else? Soon he is going to take to painting or singing or something else additional and bizarre :P)



I got to say, I am more impressed with Gauri - she's close to 40 and oh boy, I've only pushed out one kid compared to her two, but I would KILL to look that good in a skirt this short and a shirt this tight. *sigh* She can keep Shahrukh, I want her trainer.

Also, that hair. I want.

The Hell?????

Shah Rukh Khan, dangermousie's favorite actor, and more importantly the world's biggest movie star (because he is the biggest movie star in Bollywood and Bollywood tickets outsell Hollywood) was in the United States for filming and was detained by the immigration folks for questioning - for two hours!!! The Indian Embassy had to intervene to get him out.

Ooooh goody - he is a Muslim man, he's got to be an eeeeeeeevil terrorist? The hell?

Are they flipping INSANE????? Fine, they detained him because the name came up on some screen or other, but why the hell did they question him for hours and only released him after the Indian Embassy got involved? Shouldn't he have been let go immediately? He told them he was a movie star - couldn't they fucking google it to confirm it if they are clueless?

Ironically, I bet he was in the US to film "My Name is Khan," about prejudice a Muslim man is subjected to in America (which apparently got picked up by Fox Searchlight for distribution in the US). How apt.

Ooooh, doesn't he look scary and detainable:

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.

All of a sudden I really want to see the Taiwanese drama The Hospital:



Mmmmm. Jerry Yan (Domyouji in Taiwanese Hanadan).

In other news, I am sure all Bolly fanatics on my flist are aware, but SHARUKH KHAN IS GOING TO BE A PRESENTER AT GOLDEN GLOBES tomorrow. OH MY GOD.
