bollywood movie masters

I have been watching bollywood for about half of my life, but had been in a rut for a little while now. After listening to about half of your podcast episodes, I now have a long list of movies I will watch, and have started watching ones I hadn't seen since listening to you guys. You're always informative and well versed about all of the material you talk about and cover a wide range of genres that I never knew about within bollywood. Since I've been listening to you guys everyday for over a month now, I almost feel like I know you, so hi :) Thank you for helping me fall in love with bollywood again!

Filmi Fun

I listened to my first (but not last) “Bollywood is for Lovers” podcast today. My introductory episode was the 2018 “Year in review”. I saw many of the movies the hosts reviewed - but not all -and I took notes on the films the hosts recommended that I had missed (I have heard so much about Raazi, I really need to move that up on my priority list).

Based on the banter between the hosts, I feel like theyI have similar taste to what I do in these films; it may well be the common Western lens we are watching through. (When my daughter and I get together to watch Bolly movies and we stop to critique plot or pacing or whatnot, we have long call disclaimed our criticisms as our “unwanted western woman opinion”. These critiques are like our own un-recorded podcasts.)

Anyway,I have only ever listened to one other podcast, and that is another Bolly-themed show called Khandaan by Upodcast, which I try to keep up with on its bi-weekly broadcast basis, look forward to each new show and listener opinion poll when offered. It is through social media links to other Bolly-loving podcast listeners of Khandaan that I linked over to this show. If today’s show sample is representative of the whole, I will be adding "Bollywood is for Lovers" into my Bolly podcast rotation.

Thanks for the fun! I look forward to your next offering!

Like discussing movies with friends

Erin and Matt are a lovely pair of knowledgeable and thoughtful film buffs who have discovered a love for Bollywood films and personalities! I love the topics they choose, ranging from dissecting old classics to contemplating contemporary cinema. They don’t just straight review films like other podcasts, they usually have really interesting and varied themes that show us films in a new light. They have learned so much about Indian cinema in a short time, and taught me a lot too. They engage in (adorable) banter here and there, but mostly stay on topic and don’t go on long winded tangents like most other podcasters. They also come prepared with lots of thoughts about whatever subject matter they’re discussing. This is probably the best podcast on the topic right now. Thank you both for the time and dedication you’re putting into this podcast. You are my constant companions during my commute!
