Te3n Review Upodcast

The team of Sujoy Ghosh (this time as producer) , Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan (switching roles as lead vs guest appearance)  that brought us one of the best Indian movies, Kahaani, of the last few years comes together again for Te3n.

The movie is set in Kolkatta and is a the remake of the Korean thriller Montage, but this time added with an amazing central performance by the living legend that is Amitabh Bachchan and directed by Rubhu Dasgupta.

Josh Hurtado from TwitchFilm joins us to break down if Te3n delivers on it’s promise, where it ranks in terms of recent Indian trillers as well as child abduction movies like Talaash and Ugly.

We keep the review spoiler free until the midway point, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, we warn you in advance where to stop listening.

Review Kahaani Upodcast ft FilmiGirl

We team up with FilmiGirl to talk about Sujoy Ghosh’s Kolkata based thriller Kahaani starring Viday Bhalan.

Upodcast are in depth film discussions for film geeks so we have two part in the show. We stay spoiler free until the mid point and after the interval we delve right into spoiler territory as a film like Kahaani deserves a in depth discussion.

As usual we go off on a few tangents as the filmography of Sujoy Ghosh, Why his Aladin is an underrated crowd pleaser, Bollyfatigue and if celebrities should be retweeting every review on twitter?

After the spoiler section we talk about how Kahaani stands up to other movies with a famous twist, who else could have played Vidya Bagchi and the soundtrack and religious themes in Kahaani.

 

I hope you enjoy the show and do leave us a comment below or a review on iTunes.

Disclaimer: at my 2nd viewing of Kahaani I noticed I had walked in late and missed the first 10 minutes of the movie so some of my comments might seem a bit nonsensical but hey ho, it’s all part of the fun!
