PK

Ep 49- PK, Street Dancer 3D and The Forgotten Army

Episode 49 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is where we discuss one of the most controversial movies to be made in the past 10 years: Rajkumar Hirani’s PK. Released in 2014, this movie stars Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput and others in the story of an alien who is left stranded on earth when he encounters the lying, thieving, deceitful humans who populate it.
Infused with the trademark Hirani touch, Asim feels the role of a goofy alien might be Aamir’s best performance yet but Sujoy and Amrita have thoughts about this bold assertion. We discuss whether this movie could be made today, the limits of artistic expression, and the similarities and differences between this and OMG, another film about religion that many in our audience seem to prefer.

Happy New Year Review Upodcast

Farah and Shah Rukh Khan come together again after a long hiatus to give us Happy New Year which is shattering records left and right. Part Heist movie, part dance movie are they able to recreate the magic of their previous collaborationsMain Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om?

We are joined by Anisha Jhaveri and Danny Bowes to answer some of the most important questions in the history of Hindi Film Cinema:

Can a 6 pack actually be terrifying?

Is there something like a merry go round bar dancer?

Did Amir actually go “Full Retard” in the PK trailer?

Is it fair to have expectations from a movie like Happy New Year?

And does it deserve to make as much money as it did? Or do movies like Kick, Bang Bang and Dhoom 3 deserve it more?
