Help Keep This Show Going

At this point, The Vigil Idiot is a one-man operation. That sounds more impressive than it is, since it’s not like there’s a lot of production value on offer here. But that should be obvious from the eternally low-budget quality of the illustrations.

Having said that, there are still some bills to take care of, unfortunately. There’s the time being invested, web hosting fees to pay, movie tickets to book, Videos to Prime, Nets to Flix… it adds up, ya know!

Don’t feel guilty or compelled to chip in if you can’t, though. I’m sure there are more important things you think your money could be going towards. But if you’ve been a fan for any period… Or if you’ve saved any time or money thanks to these recaps… Or if you’d just like to see The Vigil Idiot hang around and be available to everyone, there are a bunch of ways you can pitch in.


Become a Member. Get Exclusive Access.

This one’s for the true fans. You’ll help fund the day-to-day (and most important) parts of The Vigil Idiot. You can choose from one of three tiers:

Annual Membership – ₹1,788 (₹149/month)
Semi-Annual Membership – ₹1,074 (₹179/month)
Quarterly Membership – ₹597 (₹199/month)

What You Get:
– The satisfaction of knowing that you helped The Vigil Idiot live on!
– Access to extra recaps that’ll be exclusive just for members (One for each month that you’re paying for).
– Periodic special shoutouts at the end of recaps.
– The chance to send suggestions and help pick movies you’d like me to recap in the future.

Become A Producer. Sponsor A Ticket.

If a recurring membership is too much to take on, you can just opt to become a one-time sponsor. For the price of an average movie ticket (₹249), you’ll make sure that I have something to recap every week.

What You Get:
– For every ticket you buy, you get access to one exclusive members-only recap.
– A shoutout crediting you as a producer at the end of a future recap (one for each ticket you sponsor).
– A mail professing my undying gratitude to you, and the opportunity to send your thoughts & suggestions directly to my mailbox in the future.

Help Fill The Tip Jar. Every Little Bit Helps.

If both the membership & one-off producer gigs are too pricey for you… or you’re a legend who wants the chance to support the site on an even bigger scale… or, hey, maybe you just wanna do something small like buying me a drink – you can leave any random amount you want in my Tip Jar. It can be as little as 50 bucks.

What You Get:
– A mail from me telling you how truly thankful I am, and the opportunity to hit me up directly with recap suggestions anytime in the future.
– If your tip matches or exceeds a membership or producer tier, you’ll get all the benefits extended to that level.
– If your tip exceeds ₹2,500, I’ll also send you a signed copy of my book 42 Lessons I Learnt From Bollywood – The Vigil Idiot’s Guide To The 1990s (Within India, regrettably. Dealing with customs isn’t worth either of our time, let’s be real.)

(Still not available to international readers. Go to the next thing please.)
