    Ep 94- Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam ft @SalAndTheBadPun

    Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is back with Saleha i.e. @Salandthebadpun (https://twitter.com/Salandthebadpun) of Twitter fame to discuss a movie that has long been requested - 1998’s HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM.

    The last full blown collaboration between director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Salman Khan, this is a movie that occupies a special, albeit difficult, space in Indian film history. Aishwarya Rai became a bonafide star actress with this film, showcasing what she could accomplish when given the space and a director interested in her performance; Ajay Devgan pulled focus from Salman in an author backed role; and of course this marked the beginning of the famed Salman/Aishwarya affair that would scorch Bollywood over the next few tumultuous years.

    Join as we dive deep (and I mean DEEP) into this film, to discuss its cultural impact, the gossip, the performances, the music, and so many other things!

    Ep 92- Daulat Ki Jung ft Pitu Sultan

    Ep 92- Daulat Ki Jung ft Pitu Sultan

    Episode 92 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast features 1992’s DAULAT KI JUNG. Our guest this week was Her Highness Pitu Sultan and this was her one and only choice for you, her adoring public. 

    Loosely based on the Hollywood film MCKENNA’S GOLD, this movie is several things, none of them good: it is a college romance, an elopement story starring the greatest elopers of their generation, a Romeo and Juliet story, a treasure hunt, an anthropological exercise, and an investigation of the uneasy nexus between crime branch officers and vampires. 

    Starring Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Kiran Kumar, Shafi Inamdar, Tiku Talsania, Dilip Tahil, Paresh Rawal and KADER KHAN (with guest star, Coffin Donkey), Daulat ki Jung is a trip back in the time machine to a very different Bollywood.

    Show Notes:

    Ep 91- Listener Mail Bag, White Tiger and Master Review

    Episode 91 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast sees us racing towards a century of episodes! We can scarcely believe it! So we start this stretch with a dive into our listener’s mailbag - featuring a little hate, a lot of love, and some deep questions from friends new and old. 

    Amrita finally watched LUPIN, the French series taking Netflix by storm and had several thoughts about it. Asim and Sujoy watched MASTER, the controversial Tamil film starring the two Vijays, and Asim had questions. They also watched THE WHITE TIGER, the new Priyanka Chopra Jonas / Rajkumar Rao film and we discuss what makes a good adaptation. 

    Watch out for a surprise guest in the latter half of the episode and join us next time for a trip back in the time machine to DAULAT KI JUNG.

    Starring Shahrukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Aditya Panscholi, this 90s classic was directed by then-frequent SRK-collaborator Aziz Mirza and show his touch for portraying the little people with big dreams in their eyes. More than 20 years after its release, it remains an ode to a different kind of Bombay, a different India, and a much different SRK-Juhi.

z1shan ,

I have a feeling this could become a cult classic of a podcast.

Good mix of characters as per hosts and the guests.

Asim - Salman and Amir* fan as host is the fanboy of the group.
Sujoy - Banter Brigade.
Amrita - clearly not a khan fan as that makes the podcast funny as she tears into each of the khans (specially Amir).

Pitu is the best guest, needs to be on more and with even worse films to review if possible.

Mandy K R ,

Brilliant

Such a good listen they have such an array of movies which they review. The ‘yeh bacha’ always makes me laugh! 🤣 I am currently listening back to all the episodes as I’ve only just stumbled upon this gem. Keep up the good work!

Vaishali katrina ,

Really entertaining and informative

I’ve recently moved out of London and found myself feeling really homesick. Indian restaurants and Bollywood playing cinemas are limited. Therefore when I stumbled across the Khandaan podcast, I immediately was hooked! Thank you Khandaan podcast for almost becoming my friends on my journey into work (which is nearly 2 hours each way). I’ve been listening to your podcasts religiously and can’t thank you enough for creating such an epic podcast!
