Originally planned as a book, Masala Zindabad is a series of conversations within a far-flung community of Bollywood bloggers who we hope will join us - "us" being Amrita of Indie Quill and Beth of Beth Loves Bollywood - on this (ad)venture. These podcasts are an affectionate and thoughtful look at the broad range of themes that define Bollywood and make Bollywood defy definition.
As a test run, we chose Gaddar (1973) - a movie recommended by our friend Memsaab. It was every bit as enjoyable as promised, from Pran riding around in his American boat of a car in an early montage to the post-climax shot of Vinod Khanna kicking an iron chest full of cursed money in deep frustration.
In the coming weeks, we plan to discuss everything from the latest movies to B-films you may have never heard of with (hopefully) some of your favorite bloggers. We hope you enjoy it.
The latest podcast is displayed above and all episodes should be visible in your reader if you subscribe, but you can download here if you prefer. Caveat: we know the quality of the audio in this first episode is bad, and we're working as fast as we can to learn how to make it better. Please forgive our ignorance!
