Finally watched it yesterday. Loved it. As usual for South Indian movies the violence was a bit too graphic, although here it lost some of the grueling due to the special effects. Story was great I think, acting was very good too.
My favorite character was Amarendra Baahubali more than Mahendra, what is your opinion? Father or son?
Nothing really new here, but the spectacle part is outdated. Since his laser surgery about 3 years back he never wears specs anymore!
And I don't believe the soap part. I know he has mentioned it on occasions that he doesn't use soap, but he never said he never uses soap. Whenever he mentioned this it was referred to his 2 hour bath after finishing a movie - where he just stands under the shower without using soap or shampoo. And he might even not use it at other occasions. However someone who uses as much hair gel as he does at times, can't go without shampoo and come out with his fluffy hair! At another time he mentioned that he doesn't like conditioning his hair, as his hair becomes too fluffy - so I assume he uses shampoo! As for the soap, I really really doubt that he never uses it!
Years ago when I saw snow for the first time, took this pic to show my kids. Thx @ishikamohan for keeping it safe. t.co/qL7xVZ3SAX @ishikamohan I'm a #photohoarder @iamsrk ,if there's anything like that. There were many happy beautiful…
How could that have been the first time he saw snow? DDLJ was shot long before Aryan was born... if there wasn't even another time he saw snow before!
Finally watched it. Incredibly good. One general thing I liked about the movie was how Nawaz's character is drawn out to be the consistently good one. Even if at some point, you are rooting for Raees to win, it is still not at the expense of Majmudar. I really liked that about the movie. In essence, it is not an anti-hero as in Baazigar, it is a character that starts out with negative shades and stays the same through out. I am so glad now that they replaced Farhan with Nawaz, who is quite brilliant in the movie.
Nice! By the way, does RC have their own film studios now, or do they still use YR studios or film city? I know it has been a dream of SRK to build or buy his own studio but at one point it was just too expensive!

Actually I thought the story was pretty good, especially the turns it took in the 2nd half! This movie would have not worked with 2 parts if the story would be boring! I also liked the historic background attempt of the movie! It was well executed I felt - especially considering that Indian movies are usually not very history based, and of those who tried many failed ...
It's worth watching! Seriously! If not in cinema then at least on DVD! I wouldn't praise a Dharma Production otherwise if it wouldn't be good...
Shah Rukh himself doesn't agree with the word *chemistry* I think he prefers *comfort level* and I sooooo agree! Every time he has a new co-star, people go crazy about his *incredible chemistry* (with every single one of them) haha Surely it's obvious, that the *chemistry* comes from SRK himself - he could have *chemistry* with a tree trunk (I think Kajol said that) or even with any one of his fans (ie moi!)
He said "I could be with a cow on screen and make it look like chemistry" That's what Kajol mentioned in the very first Koffew with Karan episode!

So tonight I started, and watched Deewana. I have never watched the first half. Always felt it was redundant to watch it if SRK did not even appear in it. But I must say, I really enjoyed the whole film. Rishi Kapoor, though a little chubby , acted very well in this role. And Divya Bharti was very sweet too. Sad to know that Divya did pass away not long after the release of the movie. Just recently I have watched an interview where SRK mentioned that Deewana was not supposed to come as his first release, and the makers of his other movies were very worried that they had casted SRK in their movies because he did not even appear on the poster of Deewana. Luckily they were proven wrong and Deewana turned out to be a hit as we all know and the rest is history
The story was very nice, especially for the time it was made in. I don't know much about the director of the movie, or what else he has done, but I felt he did a good job with Deewana.
SRK played the role of Raju very well, and of course with a lot of passion and energy. The character of Raju was a little rough in the beginning I felt. Some scenes reminded me of Darr, and I felt he was more like a stalker than a serious lover. Luckily he smoothed and calmed down after moving in with Kajal and her MIL.
Just for fun: Alok Nath, who played the Attorney in the movie, reminded me so much of Jason Segel. I have seen Alok Nath in many other movies, but here he was like the brown brother of Jason Segel. :p

I know many of you have watched all SRK movies in chronological sequence again and again. I have never done this so far, and I am ashamed to say that I have not even watched all SRK movies as a whole. There are a lot of his old movies that I just watched in pieces, looking for good SRK moments - and I have many of those. Now I thought its finally time to go back and watch them all - the whole filmography from beginning til end without exception. I will use this thread to share my personal reviews about each movie - please comment and join in if you like!
something I wonder about, when the Annexe was built, SRK apparently gave Farah and Karan an office each in the building...wonder if they ever used them. As for the *old* Mannat, maybe they could be using it for staff accommodation?
Maybe the part about Farah and Karan is fake news..?

Random question: I am always wondering, what the "old" part of Mannat is used for, since they got the 6 floors behind it. Does anyone know? I mean the living rooms, bed rooms, dining, office, gym etc is all in the new building... what's left in the old one? Maybe for guests, parties, servants quarters etc?
I actually found this upsetting. First of all, whoever found it, it was ill-gotten (not you guys, its been all over the internet). Someone at the school unwisely posted it. Second, this has to be 8th grade which is 2 years ago. She goes to an English boarding school which a) would not use chicken biryani as part of a joke and b) probably wouldn't have a completely Indian cast. So, this is old and doubly unfair for whoever put it out there to do so. Much of twitter is acting as if it was recent. I am sure she and her acting has matured. If you see it anywhere do remind them that this is not current.
Yeah I thought it would be older for the same reasons, but I wouldn't worry about her acting to need to mature, I thought she was amazing!
But yeah I know it is stupid that these kids aren't left alone which is why I wasn't sure if posting it is alright!
