Welcome to Episode 38 of the Khandaan podcast where we discuss 2001’s Shahrukh Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer, Asoka.
Directed by Santosh Sivan, this movie handily won our poll of the week – a nod to its cult status today compared to the flop it was on arrival. Co-starring some really intriguing and talented actors we don’t often see onscreen, this SRK home production remains a visual treat but how does it fare narratively at close to 3 hours of runtime?
A short timeline:
- 03:35 Yesterday, a film by Danny Boyle, starring Himesh Patel and Lily James
- 07.10 Article 15 and Asim’s frank interview with director Anubhav Sinha
- 16:15 Kabir Singh – a very successful controversy
- 29:47 Dostana 2 – who cares?
- 32:10 Asoka: the main discussion
We also have a new poll for the next episode and pick which Khan movie from the year 2000 we will be talking about
