Dhamaka is the latest Bollywood movie on Netflix. It's an official remake of the 2013 Korean film, The Terror Live. However, it's a baffling movie full of plot holes that don't meet any expectations of a drama, or a thriller. Host Shah Shahid breaks down all the things that don't work about the movie, and one positive thing. So check out Shah's spoiler review of Dhamaka, on Netflix right now. HIGHLIGHTS:
This week's guest is Darshan Doshi. Darshan is a prolific Indian drummer and composer based in Mumbai. He's recorded a million Bollywood movie soundtracks and is one of the busiest drummers in India for the studio / tv / live stage...basically anywhere you'd need a drummer, Darshan is your guy. I've known him for a few years now and his passion for both bringing Indian rhythms to the international stage AND bringing more Western style drumming / drummers to India is very inspiring to say the least. He's the epitome of a drumming ambassador and I had a blast learning about the influences that made Darshan Darshan. Cheers!

This week, we are reading Grafity's Wall, the 2018 graphic novel written by acclaimed creator Ram V, illustrated by Anand Radhakrishnan and colored by Aditya Bidikar. The book follows the follies of aspiring street artist Suresh, aka Grafity... as he watches the transformation of his Mumbai tenements, alongside his hustle-and-flowing pal Jay, portly writer/waiter Chasma, and aspiring actress Saira. The city of Mumbai is actually as much a character as anyone else, and is illustrated in a frenzied, chaotic, fluid and hyper detailed style that could be any inner city, but is uniquely Indian, along with the sites, sounds, and smells that any traveler who goes beyond the sacred sites of Southeast Asia will certainly recognize. Across 4 individual yet interconnected stories, we get a glimpse into hopes and dreams on the cusp of adulthood... in an impossible city, while exploring the daily trials and tribulations of Indian Youth. A commentary on the gentrification and rapid change the culture of the modern-day subcontinent faces...far and away from the India our parents always told us about. This is anything but a Bollywood number.
In this episode, we review the 2021 Netflix movie, "Meenakshi Sundareshwar," by Dharma productions. The movie about a young married couple set in the town of Madurai, Tamil Nadu could've been an insight into a newer generation owning the rich culture of the region while navigating modern relationships. Instead, it played out as a cheap ploy to attract Indian audiences captivated by movies from South India by wooing them with stock-image level narrative of food, clothes, and of course, Rajnikanth. We take the conversation forward by discussing some tropes that have plagued our cultures Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, and other parts of South India. And also, sometimes it's a 'veshti' not a 'lungi'. Also, once in the episode we say 'misappropriation', it should be 'cultural appropriation'. Bonus: Learn about our pet peeves while watching bad movies. Related Links: Indian Express on Meenakshi Sundareshwar: Meenakshi Sundareshwar is an inauthentic, stereotypical take on Tamil culture. So, what's new? DNA: Is Bollywood finally taking the 'Marathi manoos' seriously?
This week on Every Rom Com we’ll have you at hello as we break down the 1996 Cameron Crowe film, “Jerry Maguire.” We’ll show you the money the film made, share behind the scenes tidbits, and perhaps make you rethink whether one of the film’s most famous romantic scenes really completes you. We’ll also welcome our first ever man on the podcast - artist, author and adventurer Ryan Estrada - who’s on a quest to figure out why he loves this movie, despite not really caring for Tom Cruise, Cameron Crowe films, or football. All this and more on our 25th episode! 0:00-11:40 Introducing Guest Host, Ryan Estrada Ryan Estrada is an author, artist, and adventurer, who has done so many things that in this intro, he will only mention those things related to rom-coms.

It's made on a miniscule budget - but it packs a massive punch. Jai Bhim did not get a theatrical release like Suryavanshi - the 165 crore Akshay Kumar mega production ... but it has been getting rave reviews for its realistic portrayal of the police system in India and how the legal system works. Question is when will we see more such movies from Bollywood ??? 1993 Cuddalore incident real story- https://www.news18.com/news/movies/suriyas-jai-bheem-is-based-on-this-1993-cuddalore-incident-4400087.html

Jesse can predict positive or negative outcomes based on the numbers of your home address, your bank account, your cell phone number, the car you drive, the colors you wear, the partners you align with, the people--including lovers--in your sphere, the investments you make, the months of the year that are favorable to you personally, the pet you own and a host of other factors--based on YOUR numbers and how they match or conflict with these other elements in your life!

All eyes are on the COP summit on climate change, its delegates charged with the task of limiting CO2 emissions for decades to come. The mood music beforehand has not been positive, but then this summit represents one of the greatest challenges of all times in terms of diplomacy: persuading many countries to take a short-term economic hit, in return for the long term, greater good of the planet. This would be a tough call at any time, but the times now seem particularly challenging for reaching agreement, according to James Landale. He was at the G20 summit of wealthy nations which has just finished in Rome, a prelude to the COP event. He says even there, it was clear that multilateral cooperation is just not in vogue at the moment. India has a reputation as a country where families of the rich and famous are particularly protected from misfortune, not having to play by the same rules as lesser mortals. However, it seems that now depends on what kind of fame and wealth you are related to. This has been brought to the fore by two recent criminal cases. On the one hand, there is the son of a Bollywood film star, caught up in allegations of drug possession. On the other hand is the story of a government minister's son. His car apparently ploughed into a group of protestors, killing eight. It is what happened next that has made these cases front page news in India. The actor's son was locked up straight away, despite his apparently plausible protestations of innocence. Meanwhile it took almost a week for the Minister's son even to be arrested. Geeta Pandey has been following the twists and turns of this murky story. The rich and famous of Europe also have their privileges, not least the expensive spots they go to on holiday. Among these is Monte Carlo, popular particularly with those who not only have plenty of cash, but also a yacht that needs berthing. The capital city of tiny little Monaco has always pulled in such big-wigs, but it seems these visitors are now very much a reason that other visitors come. Because while some choose safaris for a holiday, to see wild animals, in Monaco, it's the wealthy people and their lifestyles which other people come to see, says Felicity Hannah. International summits may be tough going for negotiators, as we suggested above, but they do at least give world leaders a brief break from their troubles back home. Prime Ministers and Presidents get to strut their stuff on the world stage, talking about major issues like climate change. Just for a few days, they don't have to think so much about how to run public services, for example, or whether voters will approve of new regulations they've introduced to control playground safety in nursery schools. Instead, it is the big stuff they can focus on. And yet, some of those who went to Glasgow will have found it hard to forget the home front. Take the US President, Joseph Biden. Less than a year after being elected, his poll ratings are not good . This week his Democratic Party lost a crucial Governor's election in Virginia, a vote which many commentators believe expressed popular disaffection with the President and his record. Anthony Zurcher has been travelling with Joseph Biden this past week, and has also been talking to some of his heartland electorate back home. It is not easy finding places for astronauts to train. Some of the original Apollo team who went to the moon practised under-water, to get a taste of weightlessness. They also went to the Arizona desert, to experience a barren landscape that would be similar to the moon's. What you might not expect is to find a team of trainee space adventurers coming to a small, medieval town in southern Germany. Certainly this was not the kind of company Andrew Eames expected to be keeping.

Every year, as Halloween approaches, Film Comment Co-Deputy Editors Devika Girish and Clinton Krute are forced to confront one of their greatest fears: horror movies. For this year's festivities, they invited two horror experts—Violet Lucca, web editor at Harper's Magazine, and Maddie Whittle, Programming Assistant at Film at Lincoln Center—to inflict some scary movies upon them. Violet and Maddie selected a couple underground favorites: Mohammed Shebl's bonkers 1981 Egyptian horror musical Fangs and Andy Milligan's low-budget sleaze-fest The Body Beneath (1970). As it turned out, these vampire outings aren't all that frightening, but they challenge and expand commonplace notions of horror cinema with their play with genre, sexuality, and political commentary. The group also talked about some other picks: Mahakaal, an '80s Bollywood remake of Nightmare on Elm Street, Sandor Stern's Canuxploitation classic Pin, and more.

No doubt you've heard about numerology, the study of the influence of numbers on your life and destiny. But chances are you've never heard aboutAstronumeroloy. That is because it's the discovery of today's special guest, Jesse Kalsi, a world-renowned counselor sought out by Hollywood and Bollywood stars, Silicon Valley billionaires, real estate moguls, entertainment companies and people just like you. Jesse has discovered the inter-connection between the planets and numbers. He can predict positive or negative outcomes based on the numbers of your home address, your bank account, your cell phone number, the car you drive, the colors you wear, the partners you align with, the people--including lovers--in your sphere, the investments you make, the months of the year that are favorable to you personally, the pet you own and a host of other factors. As a highly successful real estate professional for many years, he applies all of this to a form of home or property analysis that brings to bear numbers with the Vedic tradition of balancing the five elements of water, fire, air, earth and space. If something isn't working in your life, your numbers may tell the story! Including the numbers represented by the individual planets that are connected to you. Further, Jesse says there are "heavy numbers" that will stop you--or anyone else--in their tracks-numbers to be avoided at all costs! On the contrary, there are VERY lucky numbers, too! In his new book, All About Numbers: Attract Luck, Abundance and Joy Based on Your Numbers, Jesse helps you understand your numbers; how to adapt, enhance or mitigate their influence in your life.This fascinating book uses case histories of his clients who have followed--or not followed--his advice, along with profiles of famous figures to illustrate what the numbers say or predict about them.

After twenty-four days in jail under charges of purchase, abetment, conspiracy, and possession of drugs – none of which were admissible in court – Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on Thursday, 28 October. The cruise ship drug case has been dominating the headlines for close to a month and buzzing with new updates since his arrest on 2 October. And despite the extensive pursuit and media hype around this high-profile case, the NCB investigation raised more questions than answers. Appearing on behalf of Aryan Khan, former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi stated that his arrest was in direct violation of constitutional guarantees and none of the “unbelievable and shocking” WhatsApp chats recovered from Khan's phone relate to the cruise party. What has further muddied the waters in the NCB's case, are allegations made by a witness in the case Prabhakar Sail, against Sameer Wankhede, who is the Mumbai NCB chief and in-charge of the investigation. In an affidavit, Sail claimed that he was made to sign blank pages by Wankhede and that he overheard conversations that point to corruption and extortion of money. And parallel to the NCB case, something else is brewing, with Wankhede now being investigated for extortion and bribery by the Mumbai Police after four separate complaints were lodged against him. Seeing this, Wankhede has now been given interim relief from arrest by the Bombay HC. The Aryan Khan case saga shows us how despite legal experts pointing out big holes in the probe, the NCB continued with their investigation for weeks. So, what were the arguments made by the NCB and Khan's defense in the court order, which led to the bail order? And looking back, did the NCB probe have any ground? And did those holes in the investigation along with allegations against NCB officials, stand to weaken the case?

As the fast developing 'Cordelia Cruise Empress party case' involving Aryan Khan and allegedly “drugs” turns into a perfect mess, Shekhar Gupta looks at the unraveling can of worms involving NCB, politicians, Bollywood and others. What is the cast of this highly complicated case and what we know so far, and what we don't. Episode 864 of CutTheClutter
Sameer Wankhede, in the spotlight over drugs against Aryan Khan, says he isn't going after Bollywood. We arrest many people, but media only highlights a case involving a celebrity, he adds.
5 Players...one game ... FilmStop! The team unites with a special new guest. We discuss Squid Game and debate over Subtitles vs Dubbed versions amongst many other controversial topics! Hit the play button, sit back and listen-in.Synopsis: Hundreds of cash-strapped contestants accept an invitation to compete in children's games for a tempting prize, but the stakes are deadly.Music Copyright: Squid Game (Netflix Series)
In a detailed judgment, a special NDPS court denied bail to Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, on grounds of him knowing others travelling with him carrying drugs and that this amounted to “conscious possession”. The NDPS court in its judgment stated that WhatsApp chats indicate Aryan Khan was involved in “illicit drug activities for narcotic substances on a regular basis”. But it's important to point out that no drugs were found in possession of Khan when he was arrested and that WhatsApp chats the NCB provided as evidence are messages like “let's have a blast”. An outpour of support came for SRK and his family ever since Aryan Khan's arrest and especially after the recent bail denial, with many on social media alleging “police harassment”. But why was bail denied by the special NDPS court, given the lack of evidence against Khan provided by the NCB, even after two weeks of custody? Why is it so hard to get bail under the NDPS Act? Is this really a case of police harassment or is bail being unreasonably denied? To analyse the latest developments in the Aryan Khan drugs case, we spoke with The Quint's Legal Editor Vakasha Sachdev and Dr NC Asthana, who is the former DGP of Kerala, and ADG BSF/CRPF. Tune in!
