Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is back to the CoronaCast with Episode 64. Unfortunately, this episode was recorded just as news broke about Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic passing, so while we do mention it, we’ll have a more in-depth discussion of the fallout in our next episode. The news also cast a pall over the episode but… you know, sometimes you just try your best to keep your head above water. Hopefully, that’s what this episode helps you do as well.
Other topics of discussion included:
Asim and Sujoy watched GULABO SITABO, the new Ayushman Khurana – Amitabh Bachchan movie that premiered on Prime. There were Thoughts about it.
Sujoy recommends AXONE, a wholesome new movie on Netflix about life as it is lived by those from the Northeast in other parts of India, specifically Delhi.
Amrita watched WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING and its Malayalam remake CHANDRALEKHA for another episode of The Other Banana podcast. She’ll post a link on Twitter if you want to hear her thoughts on them.
And finally, Asim shares his impression of KIREEDAM, the Malayalam original of his favorite Jackie Shroff movie, GARDISH. (By the way, for those of you wondering, the name of the actor who plays Mohanlal’s father in Kireedam is Thilakan and he and Mohanlal made a legendary pairing in Malayalam cinema, so props to Asim for picking up on that.)
Once again, as this is a CoronaCast episode, we wander all over the place and don’t have a timeline for you. Join us next week for more shenanigans, slightly happier news and the mother of all Aamir movies, LAGAAN.
