Ep 18- Ghoul- Dil To Pagal Hai

We’re changing things up a trifle in Episode 18 of the Khandaan Podcast – for the next few episodes, we’ve asked our guests to choose their favorite Khan movie to discuss. First up, is the delightful Sammy (a.k.a. @lipstickpatrol on Twitter) with Dil To Pagal Hai (1997).

Directed by Yash Chopra, this candy floss romance might barely have a plot but it has some stellar 90s tunes by Uttam Singh, an incredibly talented music director who seemingly disappeared in the years since this movie was released. Featuring some of the romantic tropes that have come to define the SRK brand of romance, this movie also won Karisma Kapoor a National Award for her role as Nisha, the best friend whose love remains unrequited. Surprisingly the only movie to star Madhuri as “A Yash Chopra Heroine”TM DTPH makes for some lively conversation between the hosts and the guest.

As usual we also discuss a few new releases and trailers such as the upcoming Sui Dhaaga starring Asim’s forever crush Anushka Sharma – once again facing a troll army online even as she excels onscreen. Asim also gives his quick thought’s on Netflix’ new 3 part horror series GHOUL starring Radhika Apte.

Lastly, we ask subscribers to consider donating to a good cause: the recent devastating floods in the southern Indian state of Kerala has left many homeless with their lives destroyed. If you have any change to spare (even 10 bucks), please visit CMDRF to donate. If you would rather donate to private charities targeting specific groups such as pets, children, the environment, etc. please contact @amritaIQ on Twitter or contact Upodcasting and we’d be happy to match you up. Thank you.

Ep 17- Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai- Trailer Breakdown

Welcome to Episode 17 of the Khandaan Podcast in which our audience thinks it’s doing us a favor and makes us watch Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai (1998).

Starring Salman Khan in one of his last candyfloss (?) romance roles, this film evokes strong childhood memories of going to the cinema for two of our hosts. Co-starring Twinkle Khanna in one more role she couldn’t play, JPKHH makes a number of strange choices – there’s Anupam Kher is a role tailor made for Amrish Puri, Johnny Lever in a role meant for Laxmikant Berde, Namrata Shirodkar with enough charisma for a female lead, and young master Aditya Narayan who gets on everybody’s nerves.

Asim and Amrita were Not Fans of this movie but Sujoy outed himself as a sleeper Salman fan when he refused to let his co-hosts ruin his fond memories of this film. But before we get to the good stuff, we make our way through all the new trailers that came out this past week – the execrable Batti Gul Meter Chalu (rechristened by Sujoy in a way that will get us banned), the surprising Manmarziyan, the puzzling Laila Majnu, and a whole host of other Bolly things you’ll want to hear about.

Ep 16- Dhadak- Karan Arjun- Khandaan Podcast

In Episode 16 of the Khandaan Podcast, we continue with our new limited edition format: this time, a buy-one-get-one-MUFT! MUFT! MUFT! film called Karan Arjun (1995).

Starring Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, this film has penetrated deep into desi pop culture – spawning satirical skits, comedic shorts, and memes galore with its extremely quotable quotes, outsize characters, and a type of masala filmmaking that is both antiquated and sorely missed today (by us, if no one else). This Rakesh Roshan film co-stars Kajol, Mamta Kulkarni, Amrish Puri, Rakhee Gulzar, Ashok Saraf, Johnny Lever, Ranjit, and other well-known and well-beloved actors.

This week our Top Bro, Beth of BethLovesBollywood is back – revealing herself to be a first-time viewer in our shocking revelation of the week.

We also discuss the brand-new release Dhadak and the many controversies it spawned, sparking some lively discussion. Here is an article and a video that caught our attention. We then look at some underwhelming new trailers for films we probably won’t watch.
