Bollywood Weekly
access_time8 months ago
Nearly 1 month ago, our host Aditya sat down with regular panelist Satyen to discuss the joys of Padman (minus Sonam Kapoor), the frustratingly nonsensical Padmaavat, and the mildly amusing inconsistencies of Tiger Zinda Hai - which is more than what can be said of this episode.

Bollywood Weekly

1. Why Secret Superstar may just be the best film of 2017 as Zaira Wasim's powerhouse performance is ably supported by Aamir Khan and the rest. 2. A round-up of this year's MAMI Mumbai Film Festival, with special focus on Shlok Sharma's 'Zoo' - shot entirely on an iPhone. 3. Golmaal Again is the highest grosser of the year so far, proving that there are deeply ingrained issues in society for a film like this to be considered most people's idea of 'family entertainment'. 4. Trailer round-up, featuring the exciting Ittefaq, the enigmatic Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana, the confusing 'Tumhari Sulu' and the downright weird 'Qarib Qarib Singlle'. #Bollywood #Podcast #Movies #Entertainment #FilmReview #MovieReview #BollywoodWeekly #SecretSuperstar #AamirKhan #ZairaWasim #MeherVij #GolmaalAgain #ParineetiChopra #AjayDevgn #MAMI #Zoo #ShlokSharma #TumhariSulu #VidyaBalan #AkshayeKhanna #ittefaq #SidharthMalhotra #Sonakshi Sinha

Bollywood Weekly

An inconsistent, but ultimately enjoyable affair, 'Shubh Mangal Savdhan' will definitely get you up and running. Underpinned by fantastic performances from Ayushmann, Bhumi Pednekar and the entire supporting cast, who carry the film despite a limp second half. We also look ahead to the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival, to be held from October 6-14. In this week's show, we discuss Anurag Kashyap's comments regarding the dichotomy between commercial and indie cinema and how festivals like MAMI help films reach a wider audience. #Bollywood #BollywoodWeekly #Podcast #Movies #Film #MovieReview #FilmReview #AyushmannKhurrana #BhumiPednekar #SeemaPahwa #BrijendraKala #Eros #ErosNow #Newton #RajkummarRao #BareillyKiBarfi #JioMAMIWithStar2017 #AnuragKashyap #Netflix #indie #FilmFestival

Episode 75 - Toilet: Ek Problematic (but Important) Katha
Bollywood Weekly
access_time1 year ago
1) Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is problematic in so many ways, most significantly reinforcing stalking and male privilege in a film about empowering women and giving them basic rights. 2) Despite this, the main crux of the movie - toilets and lack thereof - is addressed and delivered effectively. Bhumi Pednekar overshadows Akshay but is given limited opportunity to so in the second half because Bollywood. 3) We look ahead to (in order of excitement and in reverse order of likely box office success) Newton, Fukrey 2, and Simran 4) Our guest Ashwin gives us a quick down-low on Lipstick Under My Burkha and why it was so effective. #Bollywood #BollywoodWeekly #Movies #Film #Entertainment #MovieReview #FilmReview #AkshayKumar #BhumiPednekar #Toilet #AnupamKher #Newton #RajkummarRao #BareillyKiBarfi #AyushmannKhurana #KritiSanon #Simran #KanganaRanaut #HansalMehta #Fukrey2
Episode 74 - Jab Harry Met Sejal

Why Harry Met Sejal is not a question we have an answer to - and to be honest we wish they didn't. For the first time, Imtiaz Ali has let us down. In the absence of any plot line, SRK and Anushka are forced to recycle previous roles and the result can only be described as a strange, mediocre film.
