My Year of Prakash Raj

Some people spend a year
cooking Julia Child's recipes, or following all of the rules in the Bible, or reading books by people who spent a year doing something. My quest is to watch the 200-some films of South Indian character-actor-extraordinaire, Prakash Raj. (It'll probably take more than a year... and I'll post about some Prakash-less films here as well.)

Happy Halloween!

Yes, it's a new type of role:  Prakash O'Lantern!

(I'm not sure that the mustache is quite right, but  have a week to make a new one.)

Fun fact:  the Kannada word for pumpkin is Kumbalkayi, and I came across this recipe for pumpkin idli that looks ridiculously delicious.


  1. I love the pumpkin! Love how specific your blog focus is, made me LOL. I love Prakash Raj, but don't we all? Hope it's ok that I added you to my blogroll. :)

    All the best!

  2. Bwahahaha! That's just awesome! Me thinks you should make those pumpkin idlis and post about it... somehow linking it to Prakash Raj of course... :D

  3. Sita-ji, thanks for stopping by and adding me to your blog roll. Knowing that people read the blog definitely gives me that push to post things!

    Minai-don't those idlis look awesome? It would be an excuse to buy an idli steamer and all kinds of gear!

    This is so terrific, I had to share it with others! A good Prakash Raj film to watch, Iruvar (Tamil). It is loosely based on the nefarious success of two of Tamil Nadu's Chief Ministers, MGR and Karunanidhi.

    Hoping to see you soon at the movies,


  5. Hi Mohan, thanks for commenting--glad you like the "Prakash-squash." (Today, the squirrels ate most of it, which is almost as bad as any of Prakash Raj's on-screen deaths.) Iruvar is definitely on the list!
    Hoping to see you at the movies, too!

  6. Love it!! The idea of an almost edible Prakash Raj always makes me LOL :P So Liz, do you have a final version of the stache, or did the squirrels get to it before you clicked it into immortality? :)

  7. Happy Late Halloween Liz!! And Happy Early Thanksgiving!!

    Nice pumpkin by the way :D

    Sorry to link to the forum, I never know what to put for the requested URL and it makes you put one to post a comment.
    I don't have Twitter and my FB is private with just you guys so what on earth to link to?!! Haha.
