Kalank

Ep 33- Om Shanti Om

Episode 33 of the Khandaan podcast brings you one of our favorite movies, 2007’s Om Shanti Om. Directed by Farah Khan, this Shahrukh Khan-starrer was also Deepika Padukone’s debut film. Co-starring (Chowkidar) Kirron Kher as Maa, Shreyas Talpade as Friend, and all of Bollywood as backup, OSO is an homage to Hindi film. It should surprise nobody that co-hosts Asim, Amrita, and Sujoy love this film.

Ep 32- Kalank Teaser, Badla and Ishq

Episode 32 of the Khandaan podcast brings to you the results of your vote – or that of dedicated Aamir bots, you be the judge – 1997’s Ishq, starring Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Kajol and Ajay Devgan with Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Dalip Tahil, Johnny Lever, Tiku Talsania, and Mohan Joshi in key roles.

Directed by Indra Kumar, Ishq was a massive success when it came out, despite a chaotic production schedule that effectively destroyed the Aamir-Juhi pairing forever. To discuss this film, we’re joined once more by Haroon Rashid of the BBC, who has always maintained that Ishq is his all-time favorite Bollywood film. Although we did our best to ruin it for him, he ran the gauntlet and emerged more or less unscathed.

A Timeline:

  • 05.00 The Kalank teaser and the reign of Alia Bhatt
  • 17.30 Sujoy watched Badla
  • 29.30 Haroon also watched Luka Chuppi
  • 37.30 Haroon watched Made in Heaven (with spoiler from 42.00)
