Filmi Talks A white girl (@kay_fil) and an actual desi guy (@thatbrownguy420) discuss a different popular Bollywood movie each week. Formerly known as WTF Bollywood.

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!

Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@Kay_Fil) spend a full hour discussing Zoya Akhtar's latest hit, Dil Dhadakne Do. Things that happen:

1. KayFil learns that when you give away the ending you're supposed to say "spoiler alert"? So, uh, there are spoilers in this episode (and probably every other episode, too).
2. Baloch tries to give the episode a format.
3. There are lots of characters in this movie: who do we relate to, and which characters are well-developed?
4. The ending is our least favorite part of this movie.
5. Baloch drops more "mating psychology".
6. The casting of Anushka's role: #notenoughKatrina?
7. Why are we still talking about Nipun so much?
8. What Baloch calls "Baloch Random Shandom"

1. Shah's love of Bollywood - the origin story.
2. KayFil summarizes the movie in her inimitable way.
3. This movie is the worst waste of 3.5 hours of your life.
4. Which one of the Priyanka avatars the trio liked the most.
5. Everyone hated the lead actor.
6. Umm.. Arrested Development.. really, Nipun?
7. Different feminist ideals in India? Or drivel? (definitely, drivel).
8. Goodbyes. #EasterEgg
