Rainy days are for Bollywood! Stood up by knitting!

Just got home, I have lots to do--but I had wanted to just stay home today and watch the films that had come from Nehaflix!! I had gotten Rab Ne Bana di Jodi, Billu Barber & Luck by Chance. The first two I have seen--on the big screen no less! I am anxious to see Luck by Chance, which did not get international release out in the wilds of Massachusetts. I had seriously contemplated calling in sick to stay home and watch them. My knitting students had ditched me--well it was raining as if a monsoon, so I kind of did not blame them. My son was at work-he will tolerate a Bollywood-he zones out on his computer or does something else. As I had finished up watching SRK and Aish in Devdas Sunday afternoon after yard work, he asked which movie, then he saw the DVD box-'oh the one where he drinks himself to death'! I kind of suspect Alex is a closet Bollywood fan, for he knows all the plots, including some we rented from Netflix that were kinda bad! He even recognized the DDLJ references in the item number that SRK did with Anupam Kher did--he laughed just as hard as I did to the comment that SRK (Raj) had been left at the altar, and was looking for a bride!
Humm, maybe I will do the work I need to do, and pop in a movie! A rainy day is perfect for a Bollywood.

  1. Did you like Luck by Chance? I love Konkona Sen Sharma(especially in Aaja Nachle,Laaga Chunari Mein Daag and Omkara) This was a good movie but it didn't leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling( Not that that was the point).I found it to be interesting take on the hindi film industry from the ground up..a little more reality than your typical hindi film.
