Ep 24- Simmba Trailer, Kedarnath, 2.0 and Happy New Year

Welcome to Episode 24 of the Khandaan podcast. Today we’re joined by Jay Mamtora, founder of BollyBrit, one of the last few outposts of independent Bolly-focused media on the internet.

Join us as we discuss 2014’s Farah Khan-directed glitzy spectacular (?) Happy New Year, starring Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, and Vivaan Shah with Jackie Shroff and Anupam Kher as supporting cast. A heist movie that also tries to be a revenge saga, a romance, a buddy movie, a dance competition movie, and a masala entertainer with nationalist underpinnings, it’s a bit of a mess.

We also discuss current Bollywood happenings – from the spate of weddings (Anushka! Sonam! Deepika! Priyanka!) and their gossip quotient, to all the new films coming out. Watch out for our extended debates on Simmba, Kedarnath, 2.0, and more.

And finally, just a reminder that we’re back to old and tested ways and you should vote for our next movie here.
