Episode 43 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is all about FAN (2016). We also discuss the recent movie releases, Chhichore and Dream Girl; new streaming shows Mission Over Mars on AltBalaji and The Family Man on Amazon Prime; plus new trailers for The Sky is Pink and The Zoya Factor.
Director Maneesh Sharma’s FAN stars Shahrukh Khan in a double role as superstar Aryan Khanna and his crazed fan Gaurav who unleashes a wave of terror on the object of his love when he is unable to establish the emotional connect he craves from his beloved. There is an interesting cast of secondary characters in this movie but it lives and dies on SRK alone. Join us as we discuss this deeply polarizing movie and where it went wrong but also what it got right.
03.57 Chhichore, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead, directed by Nitesh Tiwari – a film about college that feels like homework
11.16 Dream Girl starring Ayushman Khurana and Nusrat Bharucha is more of a nightmare albeit a funny one
22.15 Updates on the AltBalaji discussion from the last episode with a review of Mission Over Mars
38.00 The Zoya Factor starring Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Dulquer Salmaan is drearily coasting off a very bad, low energy trailer
