Hey blog, I haven't forgotten about you!
So here's the thing. From time to time, I do get recommendations from people who read the blog (even when I get sick or busy and neglect my little corner of the internet for unforgiveably long stretches...I promise I'll try and do better and next time I post it will even be a REAL POST!) who have suggestions for films they'd like to see me write about next. Often, it's phrased as a question: “Why haven't you written about X, Y or Z film yet?” And increasingly, I am asked why I don't write more about South Indian films, when it's obvious, I guess, that I do own some Southie films.
HERE'S YOUR ANSWER:
- I have a backlog the size of...something really big. The number of films I own, and have watched and FAILED TO YET WRITE UP despite my best intentions is verging on epic. Just off the top off my head, here are some of the films I have watched RECENTLY with every intention of writing them up here:
- Black Friday
- Red Rose
- Naan Mahaan Alla
- Challo Dilli
- Kuch Naa Kaho
- Mujhse Shaadi Karogi
- Dum Maaro Dum
- No One Killed Jessica
- Jaggu Bhai
That's a drop in the bucket, let me tell you. Please note how many of them are Southie films. EIGHT (admittedly, there's not much variety there, but I'm working on it, slowly!)
- Sometimes, when I could be writing about movies, I am writing about music instead.
- If it's specifically Southie film stuff you're after, there are a bunch of extremely, insanely awesome bloggers who know waaaaaaay more about the various Southern Film Industries than I do, like, WAY more, and if you are looking for actual knowledgeable recommendations, LOOK TO THEM. Look in my blogroll. Start with Cinema Chaat and My Year of Prakash Raj. Look in THEIR blogrolls. Seriously. I ASK THESE GUYS (and a bunch of others including Dolce & Namak, and Kay from Totally Filmi) FOR RECOMMENDATIONS all the time. ALL THE TIME (being on Twitter like, 24/7 helps).
I promise next post will be a proper review, once I narrow down what that's actually going to be. I'm kind of obsessing over Allu Arjun
and Jr NTR right now
but if I'm going south for a post, I wanna give some more love to my man Karthi.
