Snakes, Dancing Jeetu, Danny, and Rekha – Sheshnaag (1990) [Bollywood Podcast]

Sheshnaag 03

After a long delay, again due to my second to none laziness, we are back with this episode of Bollywood Podcast. And it has become a part of the annual tradition for us to celebrate the Rekha birthday month as #Rekhatober. If you remember, we did a Madam X podcast last year (guess,  I would have to reupload that somewhere). And this year, we thought to push the envelope a little bit more. On the podcast we have Uncle Jeetendra sticking out his tongue, Danny and his evil grin almost chewing the entire scenery, Rishi Kapoor and his “flute”, Mandakini being bear-hugged, and then there’s REKHA. They all come together to form this insane package called – SHESHNAAG!!

As usual, joining me in this laughathon, is Beth from Bethlovesbolly. The audio quality feels like I am speaking from 1950’s. Sorry about that. But I promise this will be taken care of from the next episode onwards. As for now, enjoy the podcast. Psst, we also did a mini-take on SRK’s latest Happy New Year (how I liked it, and Beth – not so much).

Kaafiron Ki Namaaz (2013) – Movie Review

Kaafiron-Ki-Namaaz

I’ve known Bhargav (Saikia), the producer of Kaafiron Ki Namaaz (KKN), for a few years now. I have curiously followed him and his team at Lorien Motion Pictures at every stage of the making of their pet project – from the updates of their soundtrack recording with Javed Ali and Usha Uthup, to photos from the on-location shoot in Kashmir. I suppose with social media, it gets a bit easy to do so. I suppose, that is why it feels like I have known KKN for quite some time now. When I got the opportunity to watch the finished piece in Bhargav’s personal screening room – an iMac plugged into Sony speakers, I simply jumped on it. This post on KKN has been sitting in the draft stage for a few months. And apart from my own lazyness, there is one more reason why it has been so. KKN left me with several unanswered questions and a blank stare. That makes it a difficult one to write about. Nevertheless, here’s my attempt.

Bollywood in 2013 – End of the Year Bollywood Podcast

Crimemaster Gogo

2013 brought with it the blockbusters, epic fails, and a stream of average movies. Then there were the ones that outshone the others, and others which rose above the mediocrity. On the end of the year review podcast, me and Beth (@bethlovesbolly | bethlovesbollywood) dissect the things that worked, the things that didn’t, and the things that gave us mental diarrhoea.
