Karisma Kapoor

Biwi no 1, Drive review and Panipat Trailer

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Tabu as his totally unnecessary wife, this remake of a Kamal Haasan film drips South Indian tropes that were already outdated by the 80s, struggle to make sense in the 90s, and are definitely unbearable in 2019.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!

Ep 18- Ghoul- Dil To Pagal Hai

We’re changing things up a trifle in Episode 18 of the Khandaan Podcast – for the next few episodes, we’ve asked our guests to choose their favorite Khan movie to discuss. First up, is the delightful Sammy (a.k.a. @lipstickpatrol on Twitter) with Dil To Pagal Hai (1997).

Directed by Yash Chopra, this candy floss romance might barely have a plot but it has some stellar 90s tunes by Uttam Singh, an incredibly talented music director who seemingly disappeared in the years since this movie was released. Featuring some of the romantic tropes that have come to define the SRK brand of romance, this movie also won Karisma Kapoor a National Award for her role as Nisha, the best friend whose love remains unrequited. Surprisingly the only movie to star Madhuri as “A Yash Chopra Heroine”TM DTPH makes for some lively conversation between the hosts and the guest.

As usual we also discuss a few new releases and trailers such as the upcoming Sui Dhaaga starring Asim’s forever crush Anushka Sharma – once again facing a troll army online even as she excels onscreen. Asim also gives his quick thought’s on Netflix’ new 3 part horror series GHOUL starring Radhika Apte.
