Ep 84- Ghulam

Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is back with Aamir Khan’s GHULAM (1998) for episode 84.

Join us for a nostalgia-filled episode wherein we refamiliarize ourselves with this classic.

Directed by Vikram Bhatt – a fact that stuns us in 2020 – this remake of ON THE WATERFRONT is a movie that has somehow never received its due. Harkening back to tropes explored across violent Hindi action movies, this is a clever take on Hindi film brotherhood and the fight of the underdog against overwhelming evil.

Co-starring a very young Rani Mukherjee (sans her trademark voice), and an entire cast of talented supporting actors – Mita Vasisht, Dalip Tahil, Sharat Saxena, Dipak Tijori, Rajat Kapoor, Akshay Anand and Ashutosh Rana in a brief but devastating role – Ghulam is absolutely worth another look.
