Ep 105- Laawaris

Episode 105 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is extremely retro with star of the week, Amjad Khan.

Our journey into the world of The Other Khans goes way back in the time machine this week with 1981’a LAAWARIS.

Directed by Hindi film legend Prakash Mehra, this sprawling masala entertainer is largely remembered for Amitabh Bachchan’s performance as a social outcast who doesn’t know what happened to his parents or why he was abandoned. The trope of the illegitimate child and the stigma he or she faces in a conservative society makes for the subject of a sensitive film – or it could be Laawaris!

While the movie allows Amjad Khan a complete character arc, which was the reason why we chose this film, it is also chiefly notable for several execrable choices, none of which we enjoyed. Co-starring Zeenat Aman, Suresh Oberoi, and Rakhee in a special role, Laawaris is your glimpse into old school masala filmmaking, Khandaan-style.

Ep 104- Radhe

 

Episode 104 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast marks a brief return to the world of current releases with Salman Khan’s Eid release RADHE.
This incoherent mishmash of Bhai’s most wanted movies (you define “wanted”) brought up a lot of feelings in the breast of the Khandaan crew, such as: why us? What did we do to deserve this? Is Asim now an Akshay Kumar fan? So many questions.
This Prabhu Deva directed remake of the Korean movie The Outlaws also stars Jackie Shroff, Randeep Hooda and Disha Patani in addition to the usual Salman Khan Mitr Mandali.
You probably don’t want to see this film but you definitely want to hear us talk about it.

Ep 98- Chennai Express ft @pappuchaaru

Episode 97 of KHANDAAN: A BOLLYWOOD PODCAST is here with Yamini (aka @pappuchaaru on Twitter). A Telugu film professional, Yamini was the perfect person for us to inflict this movie upon.
The movie in question 2013’s CHENNAI EXPRESS starring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone as… stereotypes in something resembling love or so we’re told.
Join us on our trek into the mind of Rohit Shetty where inspired comic skits jostle with giant explosions to create… an unquantifiable product.

Ep 96- Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega ft @iHaroonRashid

Episode 96 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is all about 2000’s HAR DIL JO PYAAR KAREGA. We are joined once more by friend of the podcast Haroon Rashid of the BBC’s brand new podcast, Beyond Bollywood and he explains why this movie is a worthy successor to his all time favorite, Ishq, which he discussed last time.

Co-starring Preity Zinta and Rani Mukherjee, this remake of the hit Sandra Bullock romcom WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING, stars Salman Khan at the peak of his powers. Listen to the hosts gush sickeningly about his body, his love life, his clothes, everything but his performance as usual. There are a lot of things that happen in this movie and we go through most of them.

Ep 94- Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam ft @SalAndTheBadPun

Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is back with Saleha i.e. @Salandthebadpunof Twitter fame to discuss a movie that has long been requested – 1998’s HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM.

The last full blown collaboration between director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Salman Khan, this is a movie that occupies a special, albeit difficult, space in Indian film history. Aishwarya Rai became a bonafide star actress with this film, showcasing what she could accomplish when given the space and a director interested in her performance; Ajay Devgan pulled focus from Salman in an author backed role; and of course this marked the beginning of the famed Salman/Aishwarya affair that would scorch Bollywood over the next few tumultuous years.

Join as we dive deep (and I mean DEEP) into this film, to discuss its cultural impact, the gossip, the performances, the music, and so many other things!

Our brand new limited edition podcast series #BingingBridgerton hosted by @bethlovesbolly and @amritaiq is now LIVE. 8 episodes featuring an in-depth discussion of the Netflix series with the occasional guest host.
