access_time1 month ago
(Part 1 of 2) Host Aditya Pisharody is joined by pod veterans Shaaz and Mansha - as they take their mind off lockdowns and coronavirus by watching Luka Chuppi. 
20%3A+WAR+ya+Pyaar%3F
access_time2 months ago
Is Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's WAR actually an ode to love? Host Aditya Pisharody is joined by Satyen and Devika to de-construct the undeniable sexual tension between the two male leads in WAR. With the help of well-executed action sequences and Abbas-Mustan level plot twists, the biggest box office success of 2019 is actually a fun watch.
19%3A+Om+Shanti+Om+%28Classics+Special%29+%7C+BW+One-Take
access_time2 months ago
Why Om Shanti Om is the perfect thing to watch while in self-quarantine - entertaining, nostalgic and possibly even more relevant today than when it released. Host Aditya Pisharody explains why the film is ahead of its time, and possibly doesn't get the dues it deserve.
18%3A+Mard+Ko+Dard+Nahi+Hota+%7C+BW+One-Take
access_time4 months ago

Part 1 - we address our sporadic publishing schedule, and present our plan to make things *a little bit* better by launching a new format.
Part 2 - the glorious surprise that is Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, and why Radhika Madan is the best thing since sliced bread.
17%3A+Housefull+4
access_time6 months ago
Aditya Pisharody and Satyen Rao re-live the scarcely believable scenes of Housefull 4 - as Satyen tries (in vain) to justify the existence of this film. From casual sexism to continuity errors, amid intense speculation about the existence or lack thereof of the film's script - the Housefull franchise continues to boggle the mind.
Also featuring trailer round-ups of Drive, Pagalpanti and Motichoor Chaknachoor - with a shout-out to Athiya Shetty's surprisingly earnest performance.
16%3A+The+Sky+is+Pink
access_time7 months ago
Why host Aditya Pisharody thinks that 'The Sky is Pink' is possibly the best film of 2019, despite what the critics will have you believe. A wonderfully well-crafted narrative which manages to stay light-hearted even when dealing with an emotionally draining subject matter.
15%3A+Kabir+Singh%3A+Misogynistic+or+Misunderstood%3F
access_time10 months ago
Arjun kare toh theek, Kabir kare toh character dheela hai? Host Aditya Pisharody welcomes back Bharat Misra to discuss why Kabir Singh, despite being a nearly frame-by-frame re-make suffers in comparison to Arjun Reddy - as well as the outrage surrounding the film. Also featuring Bharat's growing social media following.
14%3A+Zero%3A+SRK%27s+Fading+Charm%2C+Static+Hair-dos+and+more+%28feat.+Bharat+Misra%29+%7C+BW+Catch-up
access_time10 months ago
Host Aditya Pisharody invites self-confessed SRK fan Bharat Misra to try and make sense of Zero - a frankly puzzling film. Along the way, they discuss SRK's influence on films as a producer, why Katrina Kaif was the best part of the move and speculate why all Bollywood actors have static hair. No, really.
13%3A+Karwaan+%7C+BW+Catch-up
access_time12 months ago
Bollywood Weekly receives it's first ever Chinese guest on the show as the pod revisits Karwaan (2018) - and looks back on why it fell short of being a great road trip movie. Plus a look ahead to Bharat, Article 15 and the extreme hypocrisy of Kabir Singh. Also maybe the first ever analysis of Woody Allen in a Bollywood podcast.
12%3A+Kalank
access_time1 year ago
A movie that tried to do so much that it didn't do anything - we run the rule over 'Kalank', a 90s SRK film by Dharma masquerading as a wannabe SLB epic.
11%3A+Badla%3A+The+Mystery+of+Tony+Luke
access_time1 year ago
This week, the pod ponders the mysteries of Bollywood - specifically why the makers of Badla chose to abandon a solid whodunnit and go full 'Race' mode with their plot twists? Other fun topics include Delhi Crime, Delhi accents, and the Kalank time warp. Also, we have a completely unbiased, noncontroversial political discussion around the Narendra Modi film - nothing to see here .
10%3A+Gully+Boy+and+the+rise+of+Indian+rap
access_time1 year ago
On this week's show, we discuss why Gully Boy affirms Zoya Akhtar's status as the most talented filmmaker in Bollywood currently - as well as Ranveer Singh's increasingly diverse acting portfolio. Other topics we touch upon include the rise of India's rap scene and the challenges they face, key moments of the film that really stood out, the importance of fleshed-out supporting characters and the enduring mystery of Total Dhamaal's box office success.
9%3A+Accidental+PM%2C+Uri+and+Bollywood+propaganda
access_time1 year ago
The podcast is back! We discuss the 2 first releases of the year, Accidental PM and Uri - two movies with the same large objective but opposite in every other way. We talk about why Uri was so great and why Accidental PM was effectively a 2 hour SNL episode - and of course talk about the big election-shaped elephant in the room.
8%3A+Sui+Dhaaga
access_time2 years ago
Why Sui Dhaaga grows on you as you keep watching, and could have been a much better film with a tighter first half. Also, we discuss 'Thugs of Hindostan' blatantly ripping off Pirates, and Ayushmann Khurana's box office prowess.
7%3A+Stree+in+high+Spirits
access_time2 years ago
Why Stree is a triumph of matching good, progressive content with wholesome entertainment - powered by brilliant dialogues and the enduring class of Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi and Aparshakti Khurana. We also discuss why Andha Dhun is the best trailer of the last decade, and the Sidharth Malhotra mystery (i.e. where is his acting?)
6%3A+Gold+%28not+Tamba%29+with+a+hint+of+Saffron
access_time2 years ago
Gold is a simplistic movie of cliches - but it's a good watch. Strong performances and a beautifully nuanced treatment of India-Pakistan relations do enough to cover up the flaws and cringe-worthy moments that occasionally find their way into the script.
5%3A+Dhadak+but+no+heartbeat%3A+a+poor+imitation+of+Sairat
access_time2 years ago
Was there really any point in re-making Sairat? Dhadak adds a whole lot of glamour, but completely sucks out all the emotion of the original Sairat. On this episode, BW host Aditya is joined by podcast debutant Ishana Rai Setha to dissect all the numerous failings of Dhadak and where it falls short of its predecessor.
4%3A+Sanju%3A+Picture+ya+Progaganda%3F
access_time2 years ago
Is 'Sanju' simply the untold, inside story of a complicated life of regret and bad choices? Or is it a problematic and dangerous whitewashing of an irresponsible person turned into a hero? On this week's podcast, we go in-depth into addressing this polarising biopic of Sanjay Dutt's life. Oh, and we also discuss EIGHT trailers of upcoming films so fasten your seltbelts mausam bigadne wala hai!
3%3A+Lust+Stories%2C+Netflix%27s+long+game+and+the+wasted+potential+of+Race+3
access_time2 years ago
On this week's episode:

1. Why Lust Stories - despite it's clickbait title - is more just about human relationships, love and affection. Karan Johar and Zoya Akhtar shine, but Anurag Kashyap disappoints. 

2. A brief overview (read: unpopular opinion)of Race 3: the plot twists alone make it a worthy successor to the previous films. Shame about the casting though

3. We get excited for Sacred Games, India's first Netflix Original series which is already getting rave reviews.
2%3A+Kaala%2C+Nana+Patekar%27s+dialoguebaazi+and+the+sub-humanness+of+Jhanvi+Kapoor
access_time2 years ago
Why Kaala is a must-watch - in any language - and how Pa. Ranjith successfully manages to make 2 films co-exist in one: a typical Rajnikanth potboiler alongside gripping political commentary. Also, we discuss the reaction to the trailer of 'Dhadak' and why people are just so outraged about it.
1%3A+Veere+Di+Wedding%2C+Bhavesh+Joshi+and+the+biggest+beneficiary+of+Race+3
access_time2 years ago
DISCLAIMER: This episode contains SPOILERS! But it's still worth listening to because if you haven't seen these films yet, you aren't going to watch them.

Part 0 (0:00) - Welcome to Season 2!

Part 1 (3:10) - Why Veere di Wedding is a terrible film, despite all the plaudits and success it's been receiving. While its unabashedly female-first approach to storytelling is great, it is let down by the lack of any actual story to tell and sub-par acting performances.

Part 2 (18:09) - Bhavesh Joshi had all the makings of being a good film and a true DC Comics-style 'origin story', but eventually fell short. We also discuss what makes a superhero, and the importance of editing in a film.

Part 3 (37:12) Trailer round-up featuring Sanju, Race 3 and 5 Weddings in India. Plus, we discuss who benefits the most from Race 3 - spolier alert: it's not the audience.
