Big love to Tanvi and Flo 🖤

SA-Fez ,

Simply brilliant!

I have been listening to Tanvi and Flo and their reviews are about the most funny that I’ve heard. They’re witty and a lot of their comments are words-out-of-your-mouth! Listen for instance to their review of Rangeela from the 90s, Andaz from the 50s or Sansar. Their effusive persona and love for cinema reflects in their comments and bonus points for loving all things 80s and 90s. Catch this podcast for sure !
