TPP: Movie related randomness

Because I can't bring myself to type a "real" post right now:

  • I think Amrita Arora is prettier than her over-rated older sister, Malaika.

  • I hated Sivakasi when I first tried to watch it, but now that I want to order it, it's not in stock. Why do I feel like I've been punk'd?

  • I was going to order 7/G Rainbow Colony, solely because I've somehow developed an appreciation for Sonia Agarwal's expressionless face, and then I remembered I already had it on the 2-in-1 DVD of Kedi.

  • Anita Raj looks very pretty in Zara Si Zindagi, but she's no Sridevi. I wasn't feeling her character the way I felt Sri's. (And I think I would say that even if I wasn't a Sridevi stan.)

  • Speaking of Zara Si Zindagi, the songs are not pleasing to my ears. I cannot bear to listen to them. The songs in Varumaiyin Niram Sivappu are much more melodious.

  • One last thing about Zara Si Zindagi: I don't hate it, I just need time(and several more viewings) to get used to it.

  • I still haven't watched Abodh. (ETA 01/06/10: I watched some of it last night. Teenage Madz was so choote. I think the lead actor is the same guy who married Bhagyashree, but I'm too lazy to check(ETA 01/08/10: nope, not him). Right now, I'll declare it "a decent timepass". I'll have to view in its entirety before I make a final verdict.)

  • I'm toying with the idea of randomly giving away a free DVD.

  • Jaali Note isn't bad, now that I remember.

  • I ordered the Ayngaran Kandaswamy DVD. Better picture quality, blah, blah, blah, and really, it's not that bad. But I still think Shriya is the best thing about the movie.

  • I miss the sweetly chubby, unpolished Nayantara from 3 or 4 years ago. These days, she looks kinda jaded and used-up. (ETA 01/05/10: I'm watching her item number in Twenty: 20 and yeah, I definitely prefer the chubbier, slightly awkward-looking version of Nayan. Here, she looks kinda porny and plasticized. (Unrelated: I think Prithviraj looks better with facial hair.))

ETA 12/09/09: Got Kandaswamy today. It's 194 minutes and 27 seconds according to the back of DVD case, which means Santa didn't do me a favor and remove ALL of Vadivelu's scenes. I figured as much, but it doesn't hurt to have hope every once in a while.

ETA 12/16/09: Zara Si Zindagi is slowly growing on me. The songs are beginning to sound less jarring, too. Right now, I find the first half of the movie more interesting than the second.

ETA 01/22/10: I watched Ghajini last night and felt the Nayan love all over again. She wasn't looking her best, but I found her oh-so appealing, flyaway hair, chubby figure, and all. This is the Nayan who pricks my soft spot:

ETA 02/03/10: I think there may be a slight resemblance between the old Nayantara and my best friend from high school. That thought popped into my head when I looked at the Boss DVD cover. (Yeah, I'm weird.)
