Good boy bad boy.

Other bloggers have been blogging about good guys versus bad guys and most of seem to be in favor of the good one. I don’t mind the good ones but when it comes to movies the bad guys just seem more interesting, they are sort of more complete in their range of emotions. You know that whole “even if I am bad I’m nice to the ones I love” where as the good guy he’s just sort of dull….

The good guy characters I really don’t like are Anil in Beta, Nana Patekar in Yugpurush and big B in Sooryavansham. The bad guys I like are Sallu in wanted and John Abraham in Karam.
There are of course bad guys I don’t like as well. Amrish Puri is a great actor and he is a great villain but you can’t really find any positive sides to him, he is just good at being evil in nearly all of his movies.
What bugs me about the oh so good guys is that the women they act against are so very motherly in their love towards them and that kind of creeps me out.

In Beta Anil plays a “man” who is absolutely blind when it comes to his stepmother and his wife has to work against maa behind his back-to weak! In Yugpurush Nana has just been released after 25 years in a mental asylum but he still has fits of insanity but in spite of that the two main actresses both fall for his nauseating kind hart. When it comes to Amit in sooryavansham there are some redeeming qualities, after his marriage the whole “love of a good woman” thing makes him grow up and become a man. But there is a scene in that movie where he, a 55 year- old man (he plays younger), are being fed by his mother and it isn’t one of those bless you pooja kinds of feedings, it’s a whole meal- because mummy loves her big boy!!

The instant I think bad guy and Bwood I think of srk in Don. But I don’t think you can use him as an example of a bad guy, because he is SRK the definition of HOT.

Even when he’s totally insane (Darr) or evil (Don) he is just quality bedroom fantasy fabulous ...

In wanted Sallu is on a mission to kill bad guys and save the damsel in distress. And his “I’m gonna kill everyone in spite of the law” attitude is kind of attractive-and I don’t even like Sallu! Gotta admit I found the movie more of a comedy than an action drama mainly due to the toothpaste romance and the burning the shirt of his body scenes.
In Karam John plays a hit man who suddenly develops a conscience being all improved because of his pregnant wife. The appeal is obvious… right?

So good versus bad – When it comes to movies I go for the bad guy but not too bad, just bad enough to be interesting:)


Happy Happy me.
I have just bought a plane ticket to Mumbai and are planing to bum around the south for 6 weeks. I love my long vacations.

Mera movies

I have been on a Bollywood trip this past week revisiting my favorite movies. So now I have movies flooding my floor and table, basically my living room looks like a disaster area.
I need a new filing system for my +300Bwood movies. I decided long ago to take the DVDs out of their cassettes just to make it less obvious to visitors that I have an addiction. It doesn't look healthy when you have rows and rows of DVDs in the bookshelf instead of books, which were confined to stacks under my bed.

More than 200 movies ago I decided to organize my addiction in binders so I bought two holding each 50 movies. But now the many binders are inadequate. Should I just accept that I'm spending to much and probably will continue spending to much on DVDs and buy a giant mega case with a capacity of 900 or should I live in denial and buy another binder?

I feel like I have just woken up in a whore house with a needle sticking out of my arm and realising that I have hit rock bottom. It is time to either get help or accept that I'm an addict for life, knowing that an addiction is going to severely damage what otherwise could be an average healthy life.
My friends and family already think I'm off the deep end and this blogging isn't really helping at all, I keep being introduced to new must see movies. Every time I turn on my computer there is drug dealer ready to drag me back to LaLa land.

While writing I'm watching Kaho naa pyar hai. There has just been an APB for Amisha on tv. They are looking for a girl with long black hair and brown eyes.... LOL!!!!

Hello my name is Marianne and I'm an addict....

Of course I'm going to buy a giant mega case. The question now is how am I going to arrange the DVDs in that case. Year, name, actor, actress, favorite or ..... Well I will cross that bridge when I get to it!

Standing on a box

In Hyde park there is a corner reserved for people who wants to speak. They stand on a soapbox and share whatever they are passionate about and I guess B-Town has adopted that idea (or maybe it's vice versa-don't know who came first).
I have never really noticed it before but the shorter of the females in Bollywood has a tendency to stand on a box when they are passionate about something - usually a guy!
I first really noticed this in AAja Nachle because the "ups and downs" of Konkona are so obvious.
Can't dance on a box
But you can be passionate

I must have seen it before because there has been a lot written about how Rani and Abhi is not a good on screen couple due to height difference. I think I need to watch Bunty aur Babli, yuva and Laga chuneri mein daag again. Now that's an awesome excuse to re-watch favorites - as if I needed one!
