    No Entry ft @JaiArjun

    Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast has 2005’s NO ENTRY for Episode 82. 

    Co-starring Salman Khan in an extended special appearance, this multi-starrer boasts of an eclectic line up: Anil Kapoor, Fardeen Khan, Bipasha Basu, Celina Jaitley, Lara Dutta, and Esha Deol in what was to become the first of many successful sex comedies directed by Anees Bazmee. A convoluted tale of cheating husbands, suspicious wives, noble call girls, and feminists who advocate for mental health, No Entry was one of the biggest hits of the year.

    This film is a cherished favorite of noted film scholar Jai Arjun Singh, author of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron - Seriously Funny Since 1983 and The World of Hrishikesh Mukherjee, and he generously offered to share the experience with us. You can see more of his work at http://jaiarjun.blogspot.com/and contact him at jaiarjunATgmailDOTcom to join his free online film discussion group.

    Ep 80- Trimurti

    Ep 80- Trimurti

    Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is not superstitious, but if ever there was a cursed project, it would have to be 1995’s Shahrukh Khan starrer TRIMURTI.

    A Mukta Arts production directed by Mukul Anand, this movie should have been a slamdunk. Instead, it just dunked on the hosts of this podcast who soon lost the ability to tell what was up and what was down. Possibly the worst film we’ve reviewed on this podcast, Trimurti is unsalvageable in every respect.

    Co-starring Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Mohan Agashe, and a host of people who would go on to loudly infest other Subhash Ghai films about horrendous families and their wayward children, Episode 80 of the Khandaan is quite a traumatic affair.

    Ep 78- Baazigar ft @JustinJRao

    Ep 78- Baazigar ft @JustinJRao

    Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast dives deep into BAAZIGAR (1993) starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol for its 78th episode. Shilpa Shetty’s debut feature (and what a historic debut it was!), Baazigar is hands down one of the best Abbas Mustan movies ever made. 

    Combining a revenge drama with youthful shenanigans, this is the movie that firmly established SRK’s anti-hero credentials and cemented his storied chemistry with Kajol. With a soundtrack that continues to spell nostalgia for an entire generation, Baazigar is still frequently referenced when discussing Khan’s filmography.

    We are joined by Justin Rao of PTI as we evaluate whether this is the best Abbas Mustan thriller or, indeed, the best SRK anti-hero thriller. You know him from his offscreen cameos on Saloni Gaur’s Kangana videos (“Shut Up, Justin!”) as well as his excellent Bollywood mashups that beautifully marry images from recent films with older songs. Check out his Twitter (https://twitter.com/JustinJRao) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/justinjrao/?hl=en) for updates and videos.

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!
