Welcome to Episode 24 of the Khandaan podcast. Today we’re joined by Jay Mamtora, founder of [BollyBrit](twitter.com/bollybrit), one of the last few outposts of independent Bolly-focused media on the internet. Join us as we discuss 2014’s Farah Khan-directed glitzy spectacular (?) Happy New Year, starring Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, and Vivaan Shah with Jackie Shroff and Anupam Kher as supporting cast. A heist movie that also tries to be a...

Welcome to Episode 22 of the Khandaan podcast in which we welcome Dr. Sunny Singh, writer, academic, and co-founder of the UK’s Jhalak Prize for writers of color. Her latest book, Amitabh Bachchan, is now available from the BFI. In this episode, we deviate slightly from the usual in that our main movie is one that just made its debut – Vijay Krishna Acharya’s unsanctioned take on Pirates of the Caribbean: YRF’s Thugs of Hindostan (2018) starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif,...

This week we are talking about: * The Manikarnika teaser and Kangana’s scorched earth approach to marketing * Loveyatri and Ayush’s twitter hack * Line up for Koffee with Karan season 74 * Sujoy talks spoiler free about Andhadun * Our main review is Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke as we all needed a bit of levity in life and we are sure you do too!

For Episode 20, our guest is a fellow podcaster: [Maxdavinci](twitter.com/MaxDaVinci) of The Lewd Cabal, your go-to podcast for an eclectic selection of topics including deep dives into South Indian cinema, food, sports, and a whole lot more to come. For his debut appearance on The Khandaan, Max chose an evergreen classic: 1992’s Salman Khan-starrer, Suryvanshi. This legendary piece of cinema was allegedly a figment of Salman’s imagination – a film unmatched, as Max points out, in not only...

On Episode 19 of the Khandaan podcast, we continue our limited edition run of favorites with everybody’s preferred incendiary film critic, Raja Sen. A reviewer with Hindustan Times and the author of a children’s book based on The Godfather (!), The Best Baker in the World, Raja has chosen Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se (1998) to discuss. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a brand new restored print available on Netflix, this movie threw up some interesting reactions on the panel. Raja...

18: Ep 18- Ghoul- Dil To Pagal Hai- Khandaan Podcast

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](twitter.com/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...

17: Ep 17- Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai- Trailer Breakdown

8/15/2018

Welcome to Episode 17 of the Khandaan Podcast in which our audience thinks it’s doing us a favor and makes us watch Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai (1998). Starring Salman Khan in one of his last candyfloss (?) romance roles, this film evokes strong childhood memories of going to the cinema for two of our hosts. Co-starring Twinkle Khanna in one more role she couldn’t play, JPKHH makes a number of strange choices – there’s Anupam Kher is a role tailor made for Amrish Puri, Johnny Lever in a role...

In Episode 16 of the Khandaan Podcast, we continue with our new limited edition format: this time, a buy-one-get-one-MUFT! MUFT! MUFT! film called Karan Arjun (1995). Starring Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, this film has penetrated deep into desi pop culture – spawning satirical skits, comedic shorts, and memes galore with its extremely quotable quotes, outsize characters, and a type of masala filmmaking that is both antiquated and sorely missed today (by us, if no one else). This Rakesh...

In Episode 15 of the Khandaan Podcast, we switch up our format for a special series: over the next few episodes, we will discuss movies nominated by our audience as their all-time favorites. We begin with 1992’s Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. Starring Aamir Khan, this was the second film made by cousins Aamir and Mansoor Khan, co-starring Ayesha Jhulka, Dipak Tijori, Pooja Bedi, and the always reliable Khulbhushan Kharbanda among others. We are joined this week by The Guardian’s [Mike...

Episode 14 of the Khandaan Podcast brings you 1996’s Khamoshi the Musical which stars Salman Khan, Manisha Koirala, Nana Patekar, Seema Biswas, and a very lovely Helen. However, [Asim](http://www.twitter.com/asimburney), [Sujoy](https://twitter.com/9e3k) and [Amrita](https://twitter.com/Amritaiq) begin the podcast with a raucous discussion of Salman’s latest blockbuster, (the widely and justifiably reviled) Race 3\. A bro-laden movie so terrible, it drives Salman-lover Asim into enraged...

Welcome to Episode 13 (gulp!) of the Khandaan Podcast where we discuss 2011’s Don 2, starring Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Lara Dutta, and Kunal Kapoor. In this podcast, we talk about the consistently high production values of Excel Entertainment that allow it to make movies that don’t age as badly as other Bollywood product. However, how far can technical excellence take you when the writing is merely ho-hum? This episode left Asim, Sujoy and Amrita with more questions than...

Welcome to Episode 12 of the Khandaan Podcast! This week we’re discussing 2006’s Jaan-e-Mann, starring Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Preity Zinta. While JEM has gained a bit of a cult following in the years since its release, it was a disastrous flop when it came out. An uneasy marriage between troubling Bollywood stereotypes and a whimsical ode to classic Hollywood musicals, JEM is by turns fantastic and repulsive. Asim, Sujoy and Amrita have plenty to discuss when it comes to the themes...

Starring Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Tabu, Sonali Bendre, and Mohnish Behl alongside the regular Rajshri cast of Reema Lagoo as Maa, Alok Nath as Babuji, Shakti Kapoor as lower income (Muslim) dost, and other assorted stereotypes, this film was the biggest hit of the year when it came out.

Welcome to Episode 10 of the Khandaan Podcast, where we come at last to the one movie we’ve constantly been quoting – 1994’s Andaz Apna Apna. Starring the rare movie combination of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, this Khantastic film was a big flop when it came out but has attained cult status since then as seen in our poll where it beat out the most commercially successful film of 1994, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun…? Costarring Karishma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, and Paresh Rawal in key roles, this...

Welcome to Episode 9 of the Khandaan Podcast, where we turn our eagle eyes toward Kal Ho Na Ho (2003), starring Shah Rukh Khan at the height of his stardom. Commonly believed to be a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s weepie Anand (1971), starring Rajesh Khanna at the height of his stardom, KHNH is a souped-up melodrama best remembered nostalgically than rewatched in the present according to podcast consensus. This week we are joined by guest host and writer/journalist Anisha Jhaveri as Sujoy...

Episode 8 of the Khandaan Podcast features Chandramukhi (1993), starring Sridevi as a celestial being and Salman Khan as her child lover. An uncomfortable mish-mash of Tom Hanks’ Big by way of Telugu blockbuster Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari, starring Chiranjeevi and Sridevi, this little viewed film was a disaster at the box office – surprising none of us. This week we are joined by guest host Tanvi from the [MovieWalaPod](https://twitter.com/MovieWalaPod) in the absence of Sujoy, who is...
