Ep 45: Tum Mere Ho Review, Dabangg 3 and Commando 3 Trailer reactions

Episode 45 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is a blast from the past – specifically, Aamir Khan’s past. Tum Mere Ho (1990), directed by Tahir Hussain a.k.a. The Aamir Dad has everything: a wronged and vengeful snake mom, a grubby dad, a lost heir, a damsel beset by zaalim samaaj, intense young love, unique tribal customs, terrible costumes, and a fuzzy timeline that ensures we’re never quite sure when all of this action is taking place.
Co-starring the always delightful Juhi Chawla and a thoroughly awkward Kalpana Iyer as a snake with tragic fashion sense, Tum Mere Ho is a classic for all the best reasons as previously outlined by Pretentious Movie Reviews.

A Short Timeline:
01.15 Asim and Sujoy watched Baahubali at the Royal Albert Hall with a live orchestra and it was magical.
11.50 Channel 4 in the UK has an interesting line up of films for you to watch and top friend Beth is back to give the lowdown on one of the films: Satyajit Ray’s Kapurush.
17.50 Asim can live again as Dabangg 3 gears for release.
23.50 Obviously Asim is a huge Vidyut Jammwal fan and a Pitu tangent about the career of Neil Nitin Mukesh

Extra: WAR, The Family Man and Bard Of Blood

Extra Special: WAR, The Family Man, Bard of Blood

Episode 44 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is all about WAR, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. This departure from our Khan focus is due to a number of factors, including the absence of co-host Sujoy, but we wanted y’all to have an episode to tide you over!

Director Siddharth Anand re-unites with Hrithik after the Knight and Day remake Bang Bang, which was all about the chemistry between Hrithik and Katrina Kaif. This time, Hrithik is paired with Tiger, and the screen is nearly set ablaze with their chemistry. And it truly is chemistry unlike anything we’ve seen in Bollywood before. Top friend Beth Watkins from BethLovesBollywood joins us to discuss and many laughs are had.

Please note: this begins as a spoiler free review but eventually goes (heavily) into spoilers as timestamped below.


A Short Timeline:

02.50 Khoon Bhari Maang (1988) because Asim promised Beth he would watch it and ek baar jo Asim ne commitment de di, he’ll do it even if it takes him a whole year and his eyeballs bleed.

12.40 We start out with the Housefull 4 trailer which makes us wonder about the Deol’s life choices.

18.28 Marjaavan is the next Siddharth Malhotra film and it basically arrived in a freezer is how cold Sid’s career is right now

26.25 Drive is the famously troubled Sushant Singh Rajput / Jacqueline Fernandez movie that Dharma just dumped on Netflix and here is the interview Amrita mentions in the episode

33.06 Laal Kaptaan had three unique trailers out and it finally gave Asim a glimpse of what excites Amrita about this film; here is the interview  we mention in the episode

43.00 Mardaani 2 brings up the fun fact that Beth has written an academic chapter on the first movie (!) and we are looking forward to this one

46.15 The Family Man vs. Bard of Blood reveals that we have a definite favorite
