In this episode, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) discuss: 

1. Kayfil hates Baloch spoiler alerts even-though that's the polite thing to do!

2. Kayfil finally does great film summary#onceinalifetimemoment

3. The first half of the film was confusing and chessy

4. Both host have mommy issues
5. The relationship issues in the film were spot on 

6. Baloch goes on huge boring parenting rant and Kayfil goes to sleep

In this episode of Filmi Talks, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Samarpita (@lipstickpatrol) discuss Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest film, Bajirao Mastani. Things that happened:

1. Kayfil ditched Baloch and he's not sad about it at all.
2. They decide the characters are all shit/poorly developed.

3. Neither Sam or Baloch really gets the film's storyline.

4. Devdas and Bajirao are really similar.

5. Should bio pics always be 100% accurate?

6. Priyanka looks like Princess Jasmine.

7. Zombie Apocalypse!

Don't forget to hype up our name change! #WTFBollywood was super "over-hyped" according to one iTunes reviewer - we need to get #FilmiTalks to that level! Help us! 

Write iTunes reviews, follow us @FilmiTalksPod on Twitter, "like" us at Filmi Talks Pod on Facebook, etc. 

Because it's the first episode after her birthday, Episode 31 is about what Katherine thinks is the greatest movie ever made, Om Shanti Om!! This time, Katherine (@kay_fil) and Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) discussed:

1. This is the greatest movie ever made of all time forever.
2. Kayfil obviously wrote this summary, even though she totally got out of summarizing the film on the podcast :p
3. Baloch calls kayfil out on being really creepy/apparently scaring everyone.
4. Kayfil doesn't get invited to any of Baloch, Nipun, and Shah's bro-parties, which is VERY RUDE.
Baloch thinks the movie would have been better if 2/3 of it didn't exist.
6. Don't actually follow kayfil in real life, please, with or without fires surrounding her. Twitter is sufficient. Unless you're Shahrukh Khan.

I know we've been bad at having a regular schedule, but that's even more of a reason to subscribe - so you can get an occasional surprise gift in your phone/computer of... an amazing wonderful podcast! Or, uh, just a mediocre one. So, listen/share/comment/subscribe/review/follow us! As always, we're at @WTFBollywoodPod on Twitter, or just search for WTF Bollywood Podcast anywhere else.


Nipun (@NipunChopra7) and KayFil (Kay_Fil) were joined by Aria Thaker (@Ariathak) to discuss the Saif Ali Khan starrer, Cocktail.

6. Alternate sequel/prequel.
7. The performances of Saif and Deepika.

Nipun (@NipunChopra7) and KayFil (Kay_Fil) were joined by actor and writer Omar Khan (@OmarStrikesBack) to discuss Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. They discussed ---

1. Their initial impressions of the movie. You'll be surprised at which of the hosts likes the movie.
2. Omar tells us how he got the role of Dev in the movie.
3. Kay Fil brings up her shitty horoscopes again.
4. Is this movie like DDLJ or Dil Chahta hai?
5. KayFil brings up why she doesn't like the emotional journey of Kalki or Deepika's character.
6. The panel talks about the consistent denigration of white or NRI characters.
Please get in touch and let us know what you thought of this episode!! And, make sure you follow Omar on twitter - @OmarStrikesBack.
Next week, we'll be watching  - "Rab ne bana di jodi". Is is available on netflix.

Nipun (@nipunchopra7) and Katherine aka KayFil (@Kay_Fil) start the very episode with a movie that the latter loves and the former is ambivalent about.

They get into conversations about the validity of Indian cinema, the "brilliance" of Shah Rukh Khan, overarching motifs with the movie, etc. Even the Mahabharata comes up one time.

Are there parables interwoven throughout this script? (Nipun doesn't think so). Is Deepika Padukone a metaphor for mother India?

Nipun points out incongruities in the story, while KayFil thinks those are pointless criticisms.

KayFil calls out Nipun for his ridiculous standards for good movies and his weird obsession with SRK's physical appearance.

Let us know what you think about the movie. Did we miss anything or were we completely off-base with some of our discussion? Get in touch and let us know.
