Bollywood Weekly is India's first ever podcast dedicated to Bollywood. Every week, we review the latest big theatrical release, and also provide views, opinions and random observations about the latest films, trailers, industry news, digital media and other relevant topics. Thoda funny or light-hearted rakhne ki bhi koshish kartein hain! There is only rule: no gossip, rumors, who’s dating who or any of that! We only focus on the things that matter - the movies themselves.

23: Paatal Lok

23: Paatal Lok


Host Aditya Pisharody and Satyen Rao descend into the depths of Paatal Lok...and come out the other side immensely satisfied. A slick, intense, gripping crime thriller that is possibly the best show yet out of India's growing OTT boom.
Host Aditya Pisharody is joined by Shaaz and Mansha to discuss the AR Rahman 'Masakali' remake controversy, and the whole advent of remakes in general. The panel also discusses how content will evolve in the digital age with new OTT players and other disruptions.
(Part 1 of 2) Host Aditya Pisharody is joined by pod veterans Shaaz and Mansha - as they take their mind off lockdowns and coronavirus by watching Luka Chuppi.
20: WAR ya Pyaar?

20: WAR ya Pyaar?


Is Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's WAR actually an ode to love? Host Aditya Pisharody is joined by Satyen and Devika to de-construct the undeniable sexual tension between the two male leads in WAR. With the help of well-executed action sequences and Abbas-Mustan level plot twists, the biggest box office success of 2019 is actually a fun watch.
Why Om Shanti Om is the perfect thing to watch while in self-quarantine - entertaining, nostalgic and possibly even more relevant today than when it released. Host Aditya Pisharody explains why the film is ahead of its time, and possibly doesn't get the dues it deserve.
Part 1 - we address our sporadic publishing schedule, and present our plan to make things *a little bit* better by launching a new format. Part 2 - the glorious surprise that is Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, and why Radhika Madan is the best thing since sliced bread.
17: Housefull 4

17: Housefull 4


Aditya Pisharody and Satyen Rao re-live the scarcely believable scenes of Housefull 4 - as Satyen tries (in vain) to justify the existence of this film. From casual sexism to continuity errors, amid intense speculation about the existence or lack thereof of the film's script - the Housefull franchise continues to boggle the mind. Also featuring trailer round-ups of Drive, Pagalpanti and Motichoor Chaknachoor - with a shout-out to Athiya Shetty's surprisingly earnest performance.
16: The Sky is Pink

16: The Sky is Pink


Why host Aditya Pisharody thinks that 'The Sky is Pink' is possibly the best film of 2019, despite what the critics will have you believe. A wonderfully well-crafted narrative which manages to stay light-hearted even when dealing with an emotionally draining subject matter.
Arjun kare toh theek, Kabir kare toh character dheela hai? Host Aditya Pisharody welcomes back Bharat Misra to discuss why Kabir Singh, despite being a nearly frame-by-frame re-make suffers in comparison to Arjun Reddy - as well as the outrage surrounding the film. Also featuring Bharat's growing social media following.
Host Aditya Pisharody invites self-confessed SRK fan Bharat Misra to try and make sense of Zero - a frankly puzzling film. Along the way, they discuss SRK's influence on films as a producer, why Katrina Kaif was the best part of the move and speculate why all Bollywood actors have static hair. No, really.
Bollywood Weekly receives it's first ever Chinese guest on the show as the pod revisits Karwaan (2018) - and looks back on why it fell short of being a great road trip movie. Plus a look ahead to Bharat, Article 15 and the extreme hypocrisy of Kabir Singh. Also maybe the first ever analysis of Woody Allen in a Bollywood podcast.
12: Kalank

12: Kalank


A movie that tried to do so much that it didn't do anything - we run the rule over 'Kalank', a 90s SRK film by Dharma masquerading as a wannabe SLB epic.
This week, the pod ponders the mysteries of Bollywood - specifically why the makers of Badla chose to abandon a solid whodunnit and go full 'Race' mode with their plot twists? Other fun topics include Delhi Crime, Delhi accents, and the Kalank time warp. Also, we have a completely unbiased, noncontroversial political discussion around the Narendra Modi film - nothing to see here....
On this week's show, we discuss why Gully Boy affirms Zoya Akhtar's status as the most talented filmmaker in Bollywood currently - as well as Ranveer Singh's increasingly diverse acting portfolio. Other topics we touch upon include the rise of India's rap scene and the challenges they face, key moments of the film that really stood out, the importance of fleshed-out supporting characters and the enduring mystery of Total Dhamaal's box office success.
The podcast is back! We discuss the 2 first releases of the year, Accidental PM and Uri - two movies with the same large objective but opposite in every other way. We talk about why Uri was so great and why Accidental PM was effectively a 2 hour SNL episode - and of course talk about the big election-shaped elephant in the room.
8: Sui Dhaaga

8: Sui Dhaaga


Why Sui Dhaaga grows on you as you keep watching, and could have been a much better film with a tighter first half. Also, we discuss 'Thugs of Hindostan' blatantly ripping off Pirates, and Ayushmann Khurana's box office prowess.
Why Stree is a triumph of matching good, progressive content with wholesome entertainment - powered by brilliant dialogues and the enduring class of Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi and Aparshakti Khurana. We also discuss why Andha Dhun is the best trailer of the last decade, and the Sidharth Malhotra mystery (i.e. where is his acting?)
Gold is a simplistic movie of cliches - but it's a good watch. Strong performances and a beautifully nuanced treatment of India-Pakistan relations do enough to cover up the flaws and cringe-worthy moments that occasionally find their way into the script.
Was there really any point in re-making Sairat? Dhadak adds a whole lot of glamour, but completely sucks out all the emotion of the original Sairat. On this episode, BW host Aditya is joined by podcast debutant Ishana Rai Setha to dissect all the numerous failings of Dhadak and where it falls short of its predecessor.
Is 'Sanju' simply the untold, inside story of a complicated life of regret and bad choices? Or is it a problematic and dangerous whitewashing of an irresponsible person turned into a hero? On this week's podcast, we go in-depth into addressing this polarising biopic of Sanjay Dutt's life. Oh, and we also discuss EIGHT trailers of upcoming films so fasten your seltbelts...mausam bigadne wala hai!

I agree with your opinions except for about the radhika apte film. it's her inner monologue where she's conflicted and different than actual actions.
