Te3n Review Upodcast

The team of Sujoy Ghosh (this time as producer) , Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan (switching roles as lead vs guest appearance)  that brought us one of the best Indian movies, Kahaani, of the last few years comes together again for Te3n.

The movie is set in Kolkatta and is a the remake of the Korean thriller Montage, but this time added with an amazing central performance by the living legend that is Amitabh Bachchan and directed by Rubhu Dasgupta.

Josh Hurtado from TwitchFilm joins us to break down if Te3n delivers on it’s promise, where it ranks in terms of recent Indian trillers as well as child abduction movies like Talaash and Ugly.

We keep the review spoiler free until the midway point, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, we warn you in advance where to stop listening.

The Nice Guys Review Upodcast

Releasing this week in the UK, The Nice Guys stars Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in a retro 70’s buddy action comedy like they used to make when Shai Hussain, our guest of this week, and I used to be a young men. Does Shane Black capture some of the magic of movies like Another 48 hours and Lethal Weapon?  Will the movie be able to find an audience squeezed between superhero franchises?

All that and more (like the guys that would make Shai question his sexuality) in this week’s episode of Upodcast.

Here’s the trailer and synopsis:

“The Nice Guys” takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.”

In UK Cinemas June 3, 2016
