Ep 116- Katrina Di Wedding ft Pitu Sultan

Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is all about the wedding season in 2021. Okay, not really but in a year where the film content has been middling to terrible, we’ll take joy where we can find it and at the end of the year, the biggest joy in filmi circles was Katrina Kaif’s wedding to Vicky Kaushal.

We are joined by top friend Pitu Sultan to discuss not just Katrina di wedding but also all the amazing weddings this generation of Bollywood leading ladies have treated us to.

The hour is auspicious, the ladka-ladki are ready, and in lieu of a wedding registry we have a Redbubble shop! Welcome all!

Ep 5- The Dark Along The Ways- The Wheel Of Time Recap Show

Welcome to Upodcast Presents the Wheel of Time Recap Show and our take on Episode 7, the one that got Amazon excited enough to commission a second season.

We had a lot of opinions about this episode, which finally kicks the series into high gear – just in time for the first season to come to a close next week. As always, we have all the spoilers for the show but none for the books.

Ep 115- Khandaan Returns

KHANDAAN: A BOLLYWOOD PODCAST is slowly coming back from hiatus with our end of year mini-episodes.

Asim, Sujoy and Amrita would like to thank you all for your patience and the wonderful messages we’ve received while we were on break. This episode is a throwback to the early pandemic shows where we discussed our lives and what was going on. We have a few updates about what’s been going on behind the scenes, the shows we have coming up, new plans for the new year, and when you can expect us to return to full time normal scheduling. We also discuss the trailer for SS Rajamouli’s forthcoming historical masala actioner, RRR, starring Ram Charan, NTR Jr., and Alia Bhatt.

Ep 114- Khandaan Twitter Space 2

Welcome to another special episode of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast. Once again, we hosted a Twitter Spaces to discuss four new trailers that dropped the last week of October and we were joined by Pulkit Kochchar and @Pappuchaaru whom we’ve hosted before on the show.

We discussed ANTIM, a Salman Khan family affair that has Asim very excited. We were also stunned by SATYAMEVA JAYATE, the John Abraham movie to end all John Abraham movies if your definition of a good movie is multiple John Abrahams. We welcomed a new nepostar to the Bollywood sky with TADAP,  a remake of the Telugu movie RX100. And last but definitely the most, we discussed BUNTY AUR BABLI 2, now with 100% less Abhishek Bachchan.

Update Description

Ep 109- Madhumati

Welcome to Episode 109 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast where we continue our limited edition Other Khans series with the legendary Dilip Kumar.

Born Yusuf Khan in Peshawar in present day Pakistan, Dilip Sahib is an icon for audiences and his fellow actors alike. He was noted for his cinematic performances, his gossipy love life, and the influence he wielded over generations of actors. Bimal Roy’s MADHUMATI (1958) is one of his personal favorites, so we had to review it for the podcast.

Co-starring Vyjyanthimala, Johnny Walker, and Plan, Madhumati is one of the most influential movies to have come out of Hindi cinema. Movies made well into the 21st century show traces of tropes and themes we can date back to this romance / supernatural revenge saga with some of the most beautiful songs composed by Salil Chaudhary.

We can’t wait for you to experience this film with us.
