The Week in Entertainment
DVD: Veer-Zaara, a wonderful Indian film starring Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukerji, and Preity Zinta, about some seriously star-crossed lovers and a young lawyer who fights for them. Highly, highly recommended. (I am always amazed by the number of times they speak English in Indian films...) Also from Bollywood, the highly entertaining Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Gham (Sometimes Happiness, Sometimes Sadness), another Shakrukh Khan movie, this one with Amitabh Bachchan (who had a small part in Veer-Zaara), Jaya Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and Kajol (and when I say "highly entertaining" I'm not just referring to the large number of shots of Shahrukh in wet and/or see-through shirts, either :-) - he looks just as good in the black-and-silver kameez or that white sweater... he's quite funny in the London parts)
TV: Psych - another winning episode. Harry's Law - one ridiculous premise and one all too heartbreaking.
Read: Finished Reckless, which was very entertaining. Funke can spin a yarn, and her translator is gifted. Began Murakami's 1Q84, which is ... odd and enthralling, both of which are to expected from him.
