October, 23rd: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PRABHAS!
I never analyzed why I like one actor more than the other, for example I can´t really say why, out of the three Khans, Aamir just doesn´t do it for me and Salman really creeps me out. I appreciate the acting talent of the first one and I... okay, I don´t appreciate anything that Salman is doing, I will never understand why he is such a huge star but at least I heard that he is doing some social charity stuff, so points for that.
But anyway, after moving to SI movies I was totally swept away (and who am I kidding, still am) from Cherry Darling, since Magadheera was the second SI movie I saw (the first one being Bommarillu, which didn´t impress me much, the only thing I remember is Genelias really annoying character and Praju). but after Magadheera I was hooked and after many movies involving Bunny, Siddharth, Cherry, Jr. NTR I finally saw one with Prabhas, Darling.
Sadly, as we all know, Darling is not the best showcase of Prabhas´ talents (although that´s where his latest nickname comes from). I can´t really remember that movie, except that a huge part played in Switzerland and Prabhas´costume designer must have been on crack. Who else would put the rather lanky Prabhas in oversized T-shirts and skinny pants? Someone who has no idea of dressing people, that´s who.
|I mean, come on, SERIOUSLY?|
After having seen Darling it was maybe not the wisest choice to go and see Mr. Perfect, the latest Kajal-Prabhas-flick but I must say that I was positively surprised. They are still not my favourite on-screen-couple but the movie itself is better and the clothes, although still pretty weird, are better, too.
|See? So much better.|
|That is what Billa mostly does in the movie: Standing around wearing a designer suit in GQ-photoshoot manner. Which is great, considering it´s Prabhas doing it.|
I like Prabhas because although not being the best of actor or dancer, sometimes even being completely aware of the silliness around him and the horrible clothes he is sometimes given to wear (which made me wonder if actors have any say about the clothes they wear in their movies?) he seems to give 100 % in his movies. He is one of those who maybe will not blow you away with their acting skills but certainly will always keep you entertained. And what more could you want? Furthermore Prabhas seems like a very nice person off-screen, too. I like his laid-back and relaxed attitude and that he let´s Siddhu hide behind his back at Bunny´s wedding and that he seems to be so shy at interviews.
Plus he has a really nice smile (Little fangirl-moment here). And he is the first SI movie star so far to actually have appreciated his German fans. This totally super awesome video has Prabhas talk in German with a really cute accent. I love how he says "Eesch" instead of Ich.
So Happy Birthday to you Prabhas, once again, may you live long and keep making movies so that we fangirls can keep gushing about you.
P.S. My next plans of "Which-Prabhas-movie-will-I-see-next?"-adventure are Pournami, Bujjigadu and Munna which all three I will order as soon as it gets november. I am so excited!
P.P.S. The German translation, for anyone who is enough of a freak (like me) and wants to know, is:
"I love my German fans. Thank you for watching my movies. I love you all." SO CUTE.
