Theme Reveal for the #AtoZChallenge

Jaibala/ March 23, 2017/ Musings/ 22 comments

Yep, I decided to do the A to Z challenge again. What is the A to Z challenge you ask? It is a month of frenzy, fun and writing every single day except Sundays. It’s a challenge that the entire blogging world participates in and the month of April becomes month to find new blogs and bloggers. I have found amazing friends because of the A to Z challenge. You can read more about the challenge here.

Usually it is easier to write 26 posts if they follow a theme. When I had taken up the challenge in 2014 I had spoke about one of my favourite topics music. This time around I am also picking my other favourite  – Movies.

A to Z challenge is always easier with a theme. Here is my Theme Reveal. Read on & find out what I am going to write all April. Read on and find out http://jaibalarao.com Join here for the free NewsLetter delivered right into your inbox http://eepurl.com/bFkQHz

So if you are wondering what exactly I will be doing, here it is. All through April I will be taking you in a journey through contemporary Bollywood. I will be talking of iconic movies I have watched growing up and what made them special. Will it be movie reviews? They may or might not be depending on how you like your reviews. But what they will be is a showcase of movies that have changed the we look at a subject or the entire movie making process, sometimes they will be movies that have changed the way our generation reacts to things and they way they think. There will be movies that have paved the way for other movies, newer ideologies and better techniques.

What’s​ more is I am doing this in collaboration with Chandni Moudgil of Life In Third Dimension, where she will be speaking of women in contemporary cinema. Between us we are going to cover Bollywood  movies that were powerful enough to shape our generation.

If you find my theme and collaboration interesting, follow our blogs or follow us on twitter here and here to get the latest updates all April.

  1. As much as a fan of Hollywood I am, Bollywood never leaves me. Looking forward to this Jai.

    The collaboration concept sounds super cool too. I’ll be back to witness the powerful women you and Chandni choose.

    Love!

    1. As Bollywood has evolved so has the way the women being treated has. Between the two of us, we hope to trace the evolution of both. Thanks Soumya <3

  2. I know I have a love-and-hate relationship with Bollywood, but I’m sure this project of yours is one I wouldn’t miss. Add to that the whole collab with Chandni <3 <3 <3 This will be a treat

    1. I hope to have whipped up some amazing posts for you, full of nostalgia and some information. Thanks Sreesha <3

  3. If there is one blogger in the entire Universe in whose blog I really think twice before commenting is yours. I can see two of my fav bloggers coming together for the Atoz challenge and will eagerly look forward to the posts. I am sure you must have some great ideas in mind but why dont you try an alternate between Art house cinema and a popular one.

    1. Thanks Anin. 🙂

  4. That sounds like a fantastic theme. I can’t wait to read about it.
    I’m blogging about films too during the challenge, 1940s film noir. And no, I won’t be doing reviews, I’ll talk more about the phenomenon on a social historical level. Let’s see how it’ll turn up 😉

    Have a fantastic challenge!

  5. The collaboration is something unique to the #AtoZChallenge, and I can’t wait to see how it will play out! I’ll surely keep a daily tab on your blog, as I really need to start watching more movies, and be little less of a geek 😀

    All the best Jaibala ❤?

    1. Hey, I love my fabulous geeky Little one okay! But little movies cant hurt your geekiness. All the best to you too. I know you will rock it.

    1. Your faith in me is more than the belief I have in myself and thats why I am doing it Kala. Also I wouldn’t choose anyone else to do this with. Chandni and I are having so much fun writing about movies together.

  10. Movies nice! Although i am still not clear about how u guys are collaborating exactly and that will be an added suspense in itself, i really look forward to your posts line-up this season. Who doesn’t like movies and that too our masaledar bollywood flicks.

    1. It is more about the evolution of cinema. We are a very lucky generation for having seen so much of it during our life time. I want to retrace and relive all the excitement and the changes.

  11. Bollywood movies are as much fun to watch as they are to read about. Douse them with nostalgia and the result is sure to tug at heartstrings.
    Interesting, fun theme.
    Good Luck for the challenge, Jaibala!
