The Movieville.org podcast is hosted by Karan and Kushal. This podcast delves into film, tv and other nerdy topics. Warning: can become very, very nerdy.
The Fall of Skywalker
A heavy critique on Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker, Kushal and Karan talk through why they weren't fans of the final episode in the saga and what they did enjoy.
CAUTION: If You haven't seen it already, there will be major spoilers in this episode.
We've also launched a weekly episodic series, the Movieville Update where we provide periodic news bits and suggestions on what to watch across the streaming platforms, released every Sunday on IGTV.
The One With the Old Man That Hates Friends
Kushal and Karan return in 2020 to discuss one of the last two decades' most important topics; Friends - the TV show.
They discuss how it's aged over time and why some of the 'jokes' can now be seen as offensive or problematic. Conversely, they also discuss the show's merits, and what positive impacts it has had on society today.

See You Yesterday Breakdown
Karan and Kushal return for their first across-the-world recording, with Karan now residing in Canada and Kushal from his new home area of Belgium.
We break down Netflix film, See You Yesterday, in which two teenage science prodigies spend every spare minute working on their latest homemade invention: backpacks that enable time travel. When one of their older brothers is killed, they put their unfinished project to the test to save him.
We look at the motivations of the characters, what the film means, and what it is exactly we're watching.

An engaging podcast - bravo
A far cry from the host of typically contrived and over sensationalist movie pod casts out there, with a couple of knowledgeable, fun and amiable hosts. Star Wars pod in particular is awesome. Worth a try y'all
Worth a listen
If like me, you enjoy a sometimes silly sometimes informative but always fun podcast or two this one is worth a listen. The guy's format of a topic to discuss each month is a fresh take on podcasts and now the sound is sorted I look forward to receiving some more in my ear holes! Keep it up!
