Lukka Chuppi

Ep 34- Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…

Episode 34 of the Khandaan podcast is here for one last hurrah before we go on a short break for the month of April. Our special feature is 2001’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.

Directed by Karan Johar, this is an old fashioned mega starrer of the kind rarely seen these days – with Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor (Khan), Johnny Lever, Farida Jalal, Sushma Seth, Achala Sachdev, and a special appearance by Rani Mukherjee.

We threw open our Curious Cat once again for this episode because we knew you would all have tons to say and ask about this movie and we were correct! It’s clearly not as much of a favorite as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai but it has definitely established itself as a fan favorite over the years, especially on the internet where it has a cult following – if something this big and successful could be called a cult film. We are joined for this episode by our friend Ruchi who definitely had a lot to say.

This episode is being released with some quick thoughts on Sonchirya,  Lukka Chuppi and Made In Heaven(although you can hear us discuss Made in Heaven with Ruchi here) but for the rest it’s a giant episode for a giant film.

Please point and laugh at all those weeping at the thought of a three-hour Avengers 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.
