Episode 38: The Bollywood Experiment

bollywoodAfter months of preparation (more like chaos), our dream has come true: we completed our Bollywood experiment. The little losses we experienced on the way (five films became four, we didn’t get a new female guest for the show) didn’t diminish the amount of fun that we had producing this episode. A big thank you goes out to the awesome Vern, who was the only blogger/movie person/human willing to set eyes on the mysterious film culture of the largest subcontinent in the world for the first time in his life. This is the second time Vern honored us with his guest presence on our podcast – a big yaaay for that!

The four films we discuss each represent different corners and genres of the Bollywood industry, while there are some interesting similarities as well. Our different reactions – especially from Bollywood virgins Sofia and Vern – made for an entertaining talk, at least we think so. In the end, this is worth listening to just to hear some interesting takes on the pronunciation of Indian film titles.

Chalo!

Guest Needed for Bollywood Experiment!

Hi guys! We know we had promised a Bollywood episode next but there have been some problems with that and we’re currently minus a guest who’s willing to partake in this experiment with us.

We are ideally looking for someone with little-to-no Bollywood knowledge and who is willing to watch 5 Bollywood movies that we provide them with and then talk about those films with us 🙂 We will give you ample time and it will be a new experience, and hopefully a good one at that.

Anyone who is interested, please contact us. You can comment here or through Twitter, Facebook or email.

In the meantime, we will be doing an episode on the 2014 comedy Obvious Child starring Jenny Slate next. It will air on Wednesday, 3rd December. Be there. And please reply!!
