You know how everyone EVERYONE likes to point out Aishwarya Rai was Miss World and ALWAYS point out she was at one point the most beautiful in the world. It irks me, because you get to see Devdas and see the most stunning amazingness.

And she’s overlooked by us (non-indian audience).

I mean, it does help that she’s gorgeously dressed and accessorized. And Madhuri Dixit has such charisma while talking or performing — not her dance numbers on film — but live or pre-recorded presentations. I haven’t gotten around to watching HER starring filmography just yet, but I literally spent a couple of hours browsing through her videos on YouTube.

I loved her throwing in some Michael Jackson movements, and she gave me some Flashdance vibe at some point, but she does have such ease to entertain and enjoy herself on stage. It makes the experience of watching her such a pleasure. I really can’t wait to get to her filmography.

Any day now.

Rani Mukerji Films Ranked

October 6, 2013 — 1 Comment

So tell me, is this impressive for a couple of months watching Indian films or what? I must admit, though, that I’m still not familiar enough with Hindi or any other dialect spoken in films. My level of understanding goes from having a ladki or ladka giving their dil tere liye. And I’m not even sure that’s Hindi or Urdu.

Also, though most of the films I’ve come across are subtitled, some weren’t properly sync to their video sources. I think that happened to me with Ghulam, Nayak, Yuva, Chalte Chalte and maybe Hum Tum. I can’t even remember any longer. After this, I realized I really really REALLY love Rani Mukerji on screen… say it with her voice “she’s so cute.” And her eyes are so expressive with such on screen charisma. Her dancing doesn’t seem to be at the level of ease as… let’s say- Madhuri Dixit, but she compensate with the acting.

Though her performance on Hey Ram is barely 10% of the film, I do think it deserves its spot on the Top5 Top6 of her films and everyone should watch it. It’s an amazing movie.

Fan for life!

I think this is how it’s going to go~

… after I’m done with Rani, of course. xD

There are A LOT of Indian movies, and each star has A LOT of films in their filmographies. This time around, I’ve taken the “most voted” films in IMDb alongside the “best rated” and added a star with personal recommendations I’ve been given to create this list. I don’t even know if I will find all these with subtitles. If I managed to watch 15 or 20 of these, I might even have a Madhuri Dixit Films Ranked list [1][2] XD

This is my first (proper) Aishwarya Rai movie, and though I wasn’t blown away or bothered by her acting (maybe yet); Sanjay Leela Bhansali more than over-compensates for his direction. While watching Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, I just kept thinking “this has got to be the most artistic movie to ever have a fart joke in.” It’s a pretty gorgeous movie to watch.

While watching the performance for Dholi Taro Dhol Baaje [lyrics + translation], my brain just went “OMG, this is a beautiful sequence.” Then again, so was my reaction while watching Black. And so it was with Khamoshi: The Musical. Can you tell I’ve been taken by his directing?

And the music in this was awesome. Is it really true that they spent two years working on it? Coz with IMDb, you never really know these things for sure.

Think this already deserves an India tag.

I just checked Amazon (and other online sources), and there doesn’t seem to be HD releases of his movies, though. It pains me so much.
