Feminist Bollywood: Tees Maar Khan

Tees Maar Khan, a flop from 2010, was meant to be a blockbuster, not only in India by abroad. Instead, it was a goofy, affable, exploitive mess. It’s bright, colorful, funny, and intertextual. I’m not mad at Tees Maar Khan, just disappointed.

Feminist Bollywood: Dhoom 3

I’ve been thinking about action movie Dhoom 3 since I saw it in the theater on December 24. Strangely, I didn’t think it was as “good” as Ram-Leela or Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (though those are all very different types of movies), but I’ve been thinking about it much more.
