Tee shirt reading: 10dulkar 01dulkar swagger (at Tailor India.)
Its amazing how we never talk how Tendulkar benefited from his privilege of being born in a Marathi brahmin middle class, coached by a brahmin in Shivaji park surrounded by chitpavin and saraswat brahmins, and rooted by a media controlled by the brahmins, and the nefarious caste hindu middle class that lacerate the adivasi, dalit kids before blooming.
It is lauding of us to only remember Vinod kambli when we need someone to mock. Only if Kambli was born to a brahmin and not a dalit koli fisher community, then this kid might be wearing his t-shirt.
Only if Kambli was carrying thousand of years of privilege that has made Tendulkar, and many other brahmins, and caste hindus successful.
And, Gawaskar, Shastri, Shrinivasan, and other brahmin caste hindus would had been singing his praises, along with tendulkar.
tendulkar owe his success to many adivasis, and dalits who were crushed in his making.
Off course, you may dismiss as his beatitude.
But, you know the truth.
underrated movie characters I wish I knew more about: Shaleen, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008)
Shaleen is one of those characters who never really gets her own narrative within the context of the film and I’ve always wished we got the chance to know her better! We know she’s best friends with Jiggy and that she plays the guitar and that she can see Aditi’s feelings for Jai, but that’s about it. She’s a complete mystery otherwise and is the only character in the whole group that doesn’t have her own love story.
But there is that shot of her dancing with another girl in Pappu Can’t Dance, and I’ve always been a little curious about that. In my headcanon she maybe has a girlfriend who she doesn’t really talk about, but Jiggy and Aditi know her and maybe she sings and they have jam sessions together and are planning to possibly move in with each other in a few months.
I did not notice her dancing with the first the first time I saw the movie, but I did notice the second time and I gotta say it is one of my favorite things about this movie even if it is mostly hidden and not mentioned at all.

BAINGANBHARTHA CUCUMBERRAITA IS OFFICIALLY A THING
also adding more khans
Aamir Khan would’ve been great as Khan, seriously.
all I can say is JJ Abrams really lost out with this casting
Man… no disrespect to the rest of the wonderful Khans up there, but I would’ve been here forever if Aamir was cast, to be quite honest. -sigh-
Aamir would have been the most painfully perfect casting choice.
Sigh. Aamir would have be perfect. Him and his giant ears and goofy eyes and he would have cried at least once in the movie because fuck you Aamir Khan cries in every movie no matter what the director wants.
