Episode 46 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast features our first Salman Khan – David Dhawan collaboration. Coasting on nostalgia, the audience selected 1999’s Biwi No. 1, a film we had all mostly forgotten.
Co-starring Karisma Kapoor as the titular biwi (maybe? the climax left us confused), Sushmita Sen as the other woman, Anil Kapoor as the best friend, and Tabu as his totally unnecessary wife, this remake of a Kamal Haasan film drips South Indian tropes that were already outdated by the 80s, struggle to make sense in the 90s, and are definitely unbearable in 2019. The music is still amazing, though!
