Ep 34- Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…

Episode 34 of the Khandaan podcast is here for one last hurrah before we go on a short break for the month of April. Our special feature is 2001’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.

Directed by Karan Johar, this is an old fashioned mega starrer of the kind rarely seen these days – with Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor (Khan), Johnny Lever, Farida Jalal, Sushma Seth, Achala Sachdev, and a special appearance by Rani Mukherjee.

We threw open our Curious Cat once again for this episode because we knew you would all have tons to say and ask about this movie and we were correct! It’s clearly not as much of a favorite as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai but it has definitely established itself as a fan favorite over the years, especially on the internet where it has a cult following – if something this big and successful could be called a cult film. We are joined for this episode by our friend Ruchi who definitely had a lot to say.

This episode is being released with some quick thoughts on Sonchirya,  Lukka Chuppi and Made In Heaven(although you can hear us discuss Made in Heaven with Ruchi here) but for the rest it’s a giant episode for a giant film.

Please point and laugh at all those weeping at the thought of a three-hour Avengers film.

Ep 33- Om Shanti Om

Episode 33 of the Khandaan podcast brings you one of our favorite movies, 2007’s Om Shanti Om. Directed by Farah Khan, this Shahrukh Khan-starrer was also Deepika Padukone’s debut film. Co-starring (Chowkidar) Kirron Kher as Maa, Shreyas Talpade as Friend, and all of Bollywood as backup, OSO is an homage to Hindi film. It should surprise nobody that co-hosts Asim, Amrita, and Sujoy love this film.
