dangermousie: (Dhoom 2)
I think I might just drop Liar Game for now. I liked ep 2, but it's getting a little bit wearisome. I think I'll leave it aside for a bit and swap Summer x Summer or Corner with Love for it. Will watch LG game later but for now, it's probably being put in storage. Oh well.

I bring you 'Dil Laga Na' from Dhoom 2, one of the most shamelessly eye-popping Bolly vids out there.

Context. We are in Rio. Super-thief Aryan (Hrithik) just found out that the love of his life (and fellow crook) Sunehri (Aishwarya) was a mole planted by the cop Jai(Abhishek) to catch him. He is reckless and bitter and all sorts of things, so he decides to take her for one last night on the town and do what all criminals do when upset: get involved in a musical number about how love takes your life away. Oblivious Sunehri joins in, though of course her own secret sorrow is that she has fallen in love for real. Jai adds his two cents in and so do the comic sidekicks played by hideous Uday Chopra and lovely Bipasha Basu.



Conclusion: Hrithik is still the hottest thing on two legs. And the movie shamelessly (and successfully) exploits it. I don't think I've ever seen another Bolly movie as good at fetishizing its leading man (and trust me, that is something Bolly movies excel at). And oh boy, is it successful. I remember hyperventilating in the theater and (all three times I saw it in the theater) walking out by the end, in sheer hormonal haze.

And of course, Aishwarya is gorgeous. And they have psycho chemistry, one of the best I've seen in recent years (other ones would be Saif-Vidya, Rani-Abhishek and Aamir-Kajol). I can't wait for Jodha-Akbar. Elephants, horses, and Hrithik and Aishwarya sword-fighting and falling in love. Mmmmm.

And speaking of reading, I have been reading a funny delicious Karma Girl by Jennifer Estep which I hightly recommend.

Summary (modified from amazon): Chick lit meets comics lit in Estep's fresh debut. Carmen Cole, "reporter extraordinaire" for the Exposé in Bigtime, N.Y., is on a mission—to unmask all superheroes and über villains—after catching her fiancé, Matt Marion (aka the Machinator), in bed with her best friend, Karen Crush (aka Crusher), on Carmen's wedding day. But after Carmen outs a member of the Fearless Five, Travis Teague (aka Tornado), and Travis kills himself, she's not only devastated, she's demoted to society reporter. When the Terrible Triad nabs Carmen, their snarky Malefica insists she unmask the Fearless Five's Striker or suffer dire consequences. By the time Carmen knows who Striker is, they're in love, and turning him over to a superbitch isn't an option.

It's hilarous, it involves a snarky awesome heroine, and a superhero and what more could you want?

I've watched the first two episodes of Samurai Deeper Kyo with Mr. Mousie and it's awesome.

And I finished first ep of ProDai and it's beyond love. And the chemistry! *dies*

*off to enjoy the weather with a copy of Karma Girl, a hilariously off-kilter novel about intrepid girl reporter who uncovers superheroes*
