Episode 22: Baazigar

Movie: Baazigar

Episode Description: HOT TAKE: Maybe SRK is better at playing a psychopathic serial killer than he is the hero? He has so much charisma and star power that he makes you root for him even when he’s the villain. Eat your heart out, Walter White. Also, Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhen is objectively the greatest song in the history of human music.

Episode 21: Queen

Movie: Queen

Episode Description: A down-to-earth, female-centered, emotional journey that the Bollywood Boys are still recovering from. Kangana Ranaut shines as the titular Rani (Queen). Her little brother Chintu becomes a man as he lays eyes upon Lisa Haydon for the first time. We are all Chintu. Also, London Thumukda gets all the attention, but the entire soundtrack here is fire. More like this please, Bollywood!

Episode 20: Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna

Movie: Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

Episode Description: Where’s the party tonight?! Definitely nowhere near this clumsy, unintentionally hilarious misstep from Karan Johar. Amitabh Bachchan seems to be playing himself, which is fun, but there’s little else to like here. No joke, the line “I like blue” is a dramatic, show-stopping, plot-shifting moment in this movie. Listen to the boys genuinely try to understand what makes this movie so compelling to some people.

Episode 19: Maine Pyar Kiya


Movie: Maine Pyar Kiya

Episode Description: Salman Khan didn’t always look like a ‘roided-up action figure! Who knew? He charms the chaddies off anyone who watches this movie, and the Bollywood Boys are no exception. Bhagyashree was equally heart-melting, but what happened to her after this movie? Also, hot tip: don’t bust into your long lost friend’s business meeting with a huge hug in front of all his partners. Maybe wait til after the meeting?

Episode 18: Jab We Met


Movie: Jab We Met

Episode Description: Is Kareena Kapoor’s “Geet” a strong female character or yet another manic pixie dream girl? Do we care that there was obvious stop-motion effects in this movie? Is Shahid Kapoor a great actor in his own right or a pale imitation of SRK? These and other burning questions are answered in this episode!
