Ep 218: Raees Review Upodcast
We’ve got a jam-packed show today and not only because of the amazing roundtable of guests we’ve put together. After all a Shahrukh Khan movies needs the best of the best of bollybloggers to come together (of course we’re not including Asim to that list)
- Quick thoughts on Rishi Kapoor’s biography called Khullam Khulla and a deeper dive into Ranbir’s breakfast habits
- Sujoy talks about why he hated Kaabil and why the rest of the guest opted out of watching it
- We delve deeper into what similarities there are between SRK and Hritik as performers and if Bang Bang is a better movie than Chennai Express?
- Then it’s time for our main review of Raees:
- The man, the myth, the legend Shahrukh Khan
- Does Raees add anything new to the gangster genre?
- Muslims in Bollywood: Asim reference the following blog post by Rachel Dwyer on Critical Muslim http://criticalmuslim.com/issues/05-love-and-death/top-ten-muslim-characters-bollywood-rachel-dwyer
- If Mahira had a decency clause in her contract?
- Which era of Michael Jackson was Nawazuddin’s intro scene based on?
- And a monologue on the awesomeness that is Sunny Leone

A close friend of ours, Rajee, is battling blood cancer and is in urgent need for a stem cell match for a bone marrow transplant. All it takes is a cheek swab (saliva) to get registered in your respective country’s registry. You can find more details about it at
Please help spread this message to your family and friends. And since ethnicity matters to get a match for Rajee please circulate this as best as possible among your South Asian friends and family. However, all ethnicities are welcome to register.
Time is of essence – we need as many registrations as possible by the first week of February in order to find a match.
How to register?
Age Above 30
Age Below 30
If you qualify as a donor, all it takes is a bit of discomfort…
Stem cell donation in Rajee’s case would most likely be donation of bone marrow and this involves the removal of stem cells from your hip bones. This is done using a needle and syringe under a general anaesthetic in a hospital. Although this is not a surgical operation, there will be marks on the skin made by the needle. As there may be some discomfort where the needle has been inserted, you will need to stay in hospital for up to 48 hours and have a period of recovery at home of up to five days.
Stem cell donation is very safe. However, as we all know no medical procedure is entirely without risk. The procedure may involve some temporary discomfort in your bones and any small risks involved will be fully explained before you donate.
