Ep 42 Sacred Games and Hum Aapke Hain Koun

Episode 42 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is a celebration of 25 years of Hum Aapke Hain Koun…, arguably the most influential film to emerge from Bollywood in the 1990s.
Director Sooraj Barjatya’s sophomore effort, 1994’s HAHK instantly cemented the careers of Salman Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Barjatya himself as legends of Hindi cinema. It also cast Renuka Shahane as our collective bhabhi and changed the career of Mohnish Behl while introducing us to the star that is Tuffy. Join us as we discuss the many iconic moments (onscreen and offscreen) of this film as well as its songs, which are still familiar to audiences all these years later, with ace friend of the podcast, Suchin Mehrotra.
A Short Timeline:
  • 02.20 Dream Girl, the latest out of the One Man Hit Making Factory that is Ayushman Khurana
  • 09.53 Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas starring the most nepotism ever, and proud of it
  • 16.13 Laal Kaptaan, a teaser that has Amrita and Suchin shook
  • 20.20 Sacred Games Season 2
  • 31.01 Batla House, which broke Suchin’s fanboy heart and Misson Mangal, which is everything but Akshay in a sari
  • 30.00 The Main Review: Hum Aapke Hain Koun…

Ep 41- Typewriter Season 1 and Koyla

Episode 41 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is all about 1997’s Koyla, a movie no one, absolutely no one was asking for except for our featured guest, the beloved, the one-and-only, the hilarious Pitu Sultan!

Directed by Rakesh Roshan, who clearly needed to work some serious kinks out of his system, this movie stars Shahrukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Amrish Puri, Johnny Lever, Ashok Saraf and every single Bollywood baddie working in 90s Hindi cinema. It’s a gory, musical mess and we have lots to discuss about it.

A timeline:

02.00 Chhichhore – a new Sushant Singh Rajput / Shraddha Kapoor movie directed by Nitesh Tiwary
06.25 Saaho, starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, which appears to have finally settled on a release date
21.05 Typewriter, the new series on Netflix
31.19:  The Main Event: Koyla, a lump of coal in our collective porridge
1.25:  BONUS CONTENT: all the jokes that didn’t fit + Pitu’s Mandakini story
