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.

Episode 33: Baloch has a new format where we discuss most anticipated films of 2016

Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) discuss upcoming Bollywood films in this new experiment - tell us what you think!

1. Finally we go outside of just reviewing movies and actually talk about upcoming Bollywood films
2. The first film we talk about is the Amitabh Bachchan film Wazir which neither of us actually understand
3. Baloch nerds out on Akshay's upcoming film Air-Lift but Kayfil doesn't give a flying F
4. We take a look at SRK film Fan and agree this could be Shah Rukh's chance to be different 
5. Amir and Salman both are making wrestling movies? And there's another movie that also looks the same that we spend way more time talking about
6. SRK's Raees looks interesting but Baloch is not sure about how different his role will be from other roles he's done

Don't forget to tell your friends about our new site since we fucked up and changed our name and lost all our listeners! @FilmiTalksPod, Filmi Talks Pod on Facebook, etc etc. And please do let us know what you think of this additional format!

Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) discuss a truly bad movie for the first time since Baloch joined the show! They are joined by Shashwat Gupta (@youknowthatiam) to discuss:

1. This movie is so bad that it's actually good (but still not Jaani Dushman).
2. Kayfil obviously does not know how to introduce a guest.
3. Baloch nerds out on the film terrible, horrible, extremely bad dialogues. 
4. Kayfil and Shash try to connect some sort of logic to this film for some reason.
5. We forget about the film and start talking about rotten-tomatoes and imdb, because that's more interesting than this shitshow.

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.

Over the weekend, Katherine met Mira Nair and Sabrina Dhawan and heard them talk about their hit film-turned-Broadway-musical, Monsoon Wedding, so for episode 30, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) discussed their thoughts on the same. Things that happened:

1. Baloch thinks this movie is the best.
2. Kayfil's summary: "all these progressive issues talked about in the traditional setting of an arranged marriage"
3. Was the sexual abuse plotline necessary? We both think so.
4. Baloch has a single complaint about the movie. Just one.
5. Would Monsoon Wedding be better as a Broadway show, or is it best left to film?
6. Kayfil super awkwardly shares her gossip about one of the movie's actors.

In episode 29, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) discussed Bombay Velvet, Anurag Kashyap's big-budget flop film. Things that happened:

1. Baloch tries REALLY HARD to avoid talking about this movie. 
2. Baloch summarizes the movie really terribly.
3. Was Ranbir or Karan Johar the best character? 
4. Just because an editor worked with Scorcese doesn't mean she can work well in India.
5. We agree that the opening scene-setting was good and the shoot-out was bad.
6. Kayfil couldn't tell that Ranbir's character was a bad guy despite him murdering like ten thousand people.
7. Baloch quits the podcast, because Kayfil is the worst.

Sorry for the depressing intro music, but that's about as upbeat as a murder mystery film gets. For this episode, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@Kay_Fil) discussed Talvar, the recent release from Vishal Bhardwaj and Meghna Gulzar:

1. A new intro from Baloch!
2. This film is definitely super biased towards the parents' innocence.
3. Irrfan is the best thing about this movie - but does he have too much screen time?
4. Fuck the police.
5. Scorpios should not be allowed in courtrooms.
6. Critics have called Talvar the "best film of the year", do we agree?
7. If there are any "curious" 14 year old girls out there, Baloch is interested.

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"

Listen/share/comment/subscribe/review/tell us to stfu and stop doing hour long episodes. And if you're in NYC in mid-October, come see KayFil's short at Chelsea Film Festival (& feel free to follow the screening up with a whole podcast about how terrible it is, as payback for all of her unnecessarily harsh movie rants).
September 22, 2015  

Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@Kay_Fil) made it through their first Nipun-less episode! They discussed:

1. Who is this Baloch asshole and what did he do with Nipun?
2. Baloch is an expert in mating psychology ;) ;) ;)
3. Was this movie Oscar-worthy?
4. Captain Russell is basically Voldemort
5. KayFil tries to make a Batman reference
6. Are village girls only good for roti-making?
7. A failed attempt at getting KayFil to rate a movie + some sequels/spin-offs.
Listen/share/comment/subscribe/review/beg Nipun to come back/#notmyNipun/#fireBaloch.

Nipun (@NipunChopra7) and KayFil (@Kay_Fil) were joined by Shah Shahid (@TheShahShahid). They discussed --

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
