Ep 74- Dil Chahta Hai

Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast has taken its time, but we’ve finally arrived at the film that forever changed the Hindi film industry: 2001’s DIL CHAHTA HAI. Farhan Akhtar’s debut feature had a glitzy starcast: Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Dimple Kapadia, Preity Zinta, Ayub Khan, Sonali Kulkarni, Suhasini Mulay, and the by-now patented list of talented supporting actors.

Everything from the costumes (super trendy at the time), to the dialogues (a stark departure from what the rest of Hindi filmdom sounded like), to cinematography (fresh and natural), to the music (still a bop), left an impact. It changed the trajectory of several careers and gave others an opportunity to showcase their talents in a way few Hindu films have been able to.

Join us for a nostalgic deep dive into shared joys and surprising traumas.

Ep 72- Dhoom 3 ft Bollywood Is For Lovers

For Episode 72, Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast concludes it’s two-part discussion with Matt Bowes and Erin Fraser of the amazing Bollywood is for Lovers Podcast with a full fledged review of DHOOM 3: This Time it’s Aamir.
Requested by Matt and Erin, 2013’s Dhoom 3 stars Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Jackie Shroff in a brief appearance. It has the distinction of being the first Bollywood film Matt and Erin watched onscreen and it left a huge impact.
We discuss what worked and what didn’t, the “homage” to Christopher Nolan, the varying degrees of performance, why Katrina is a worthy successor to Helen (hallowed be her name), and how does it feel in 2020 to watch a movie about defending a bank.
