Aaaah work is really busy and stuff so I haven't written up Waqt or Pyar Ka Mausam from two weeks ago despite Asha Parekh's giant fish-shaped hair accessory! Aaah! I didn't have enough energy to face those projects today (and there's also the slight chance that last week I fell into a black hole of old tv shows starring Rob Morrow), so instead I started watching Heyy Babyy. Until I can write something better, here's a selection from my notes. By the way, the responsibility for me watching this movie belongs to Riteish Deshmukh, because I wanted to know if he was as good in it as he was in the Unforgettable Tour, and Shahrukh Khan. (Sorry for the capital letters. They're easier to type than italics when I'm trying to keep up with the movie.)
0:07:14 FOR REAL with the spraying white stuff on women?Actual review of something to arrive later this week, I promise.
0:08:00 Aw, the girl in Fardeen's bed is white (and blonde). Riteish's girl is white (and blonde). Aw, Akshay's is too. Awwww. White women are trampy. Yet most of the women they were dancing with in the club were INDIAN STARS. Hmmmm.
0:09:38 This girl is CUTE!!! SUPER CUTE!
0:013:00 That baby is NOT six days old. She has teeth.
0:31:10 Haha men can't be dogs because dogs are faithful.
0:37:40 Oh my god, this is so annoying.
0:38:33 I just want to get to SRK's song.
0:40:16 I'm stopping here and finding SRK's song.
while fast-forwarding: I see Boman! I had forgotten he was in this. Dear Boman: please come and save this movie.
still fast-forwarding: Anupam Kher. [Momentarily play at normal speed.] His phone rings to the song from DDLJ and then he says something about "Raj Malhotra." HAR DEE HAR HAR.
2:02:30 FINALLY the song. It seems to me that Ritesh is not as good a dancer as
Akshay (he seems to be doing fewer and scaled-down moves), but he's selling it.
2:05:00 WHERE IS SHAHRUKH? I WANT SHAHRUKH.
2:05:25 Is this him? Everyone's looking.
2:05:27 Yes it is, because I've seen this clip.
2:05:43 Finally actual facial confirmation. THANK GOD even though he has the ponytail.
2:07:17 HE HARDLY DID ANYTHING!!!
