Jaan-e-Mann: Let’s Fall In Love Again, Part 1

Dora helps us review another film. Here she answers some questions. Next time we’ll get her plot summary!

Who is in this movie? Salman Khan, Preity Zinta (is Shahrukh in it? Who’s the other guy?) Ed note: Akshay Kumar

Why did you like this movie? Because it had Salman Khan and it was an interesting movie that I could enjoy, and sometimes they talked in English.

What are some things that happen in the movie? Salman getting divorced, Salman having to leave his wife for a few months,

Where is it set? It starts in India, and then they go to New York City.

What are the people in NYC like? They are friendly, but they talk like Australians.

Who is Salman in love with? He is in love with Preity Zinta.

Who is Preity Zinta in love with? Salman

Is she in love with Salman the whole time? Umm… I really don’t know that.

Who else is in love? Akshay Kumar.

Did you like Akshay’s character? Yes.

Why? It was funny and amusing. He talked like an Indian.

What did you like about Salman’s character? He was nice.

Did he do anything funny? It wasn’t really funny, but it was kind of funny in an awkward way… Salman was acting like he didn’t care if Akshay married Preity Zinta.

Is there a villain in the movie? There sort of is. Pia’s (Preity Zinta) brother. But we don’t want to spoil it.

Were there are any songs you really liked? The song with all the dwarfs jumping out of closets and riding in motorcycles and singing: That song.

Why do you think they used dwarfs in that song? Were there any other dwarfs in the movie? Salman’s uncle was a dwarf.

Who played his uncle? (It is at this point that Sarah and I regret that Dora knows all about Salman Khan but doesn’t know anything about Anupam Kher).

Were there any things that you thought were silly or that really surprised you? When Salman snuck into Preity’s apartment, he found out Pia had a baby. He loves it.

With THAT surprising twist, it’s time for the…

Interval.

Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte

I’m back! I was gone for a week visiting friends in Illinois and Kentucky, and you may have noticed that poor Sarah had to post a lot during that time.

It’s so bad, I made Akshaye Khanna unhappy. Look at that face. Just look.

You’d think that having left her to add all those creative and interesting posts (and after getting that sad look from Akshaye), I would feel guilty and have something creative and interesting to post tonight. Well, you would be wrong, because I have the old fall-back of a video. Read the rest of this entry »

Stupid Saturday – Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna

Oh lordy.

I watched Main Aurr Mrs Khanna (English: Me and Mrs. Khanna. Or I and Mrs. Khanna. Or Mrs. Khanna and I. Or however you feel like translating it) because…

…I really wanted to give away two and a half hours of my life?

Actually, I watched it because Netflix told me it had Govinda in it. And I figured, Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, and Govinda— it’s got to be at least pathetically hilarious if nothing else, right?

Well, Netflix lied. It doesn’t have Govinda in it. Nope. Not even one little friendly appearance. I was cheated! Ripped off! Hustled!

Perhaps I am the one who cheated myself by finishing this movie. Haha.

Now, remember when we said we were going to be nice about Bollywood, all the time, and embrace it for its love of life and all that other hippie garbage? What fools we were!

Kidding, kidding. I’m here to tell you about the positive parts of Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna.

Friday Favorites – Pepsi Ad

By the time Friday night gets here, I’m tired. Plus, I’m in the middle of Vivah right now, trying to keep up with the Olympics and I’d rather not take the time to write a big post.

And… to be honest, I can’t think of anything to post about.

So I’ve created a new category! The Friday Favorites. It could be a song, dance, movie, actor/actress…

or… a commercial! Indian commercials feature a lot of Bollywood stars, and for this we are grateful. Take a look at this adorable one, featuring Shahrukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, and Preity Zinta:

Not sure what’s up for tomorrow. What would you like to see? Leave an idea in the comments.
