56: Movie Review: 'Captain Marvel'
Mar 11 2019 20 mins  
When a new Marvel Studios' movie releases, I, of course, have to be there front and center to watch the hell out of it. So here is my Movie Review of the first female superhero within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 'Captain Marvel'. HIGHLIGHTS: * Who is [Captain Marvel](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Marvel_(Marvel_Comics))? * How does 'Captain Marvel' fit into the MCU? * How accessible is ['Captain Marvel'](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4154664/) if you haven't seen many MCU movies? * I discuss how 'Captain Marvel' made me aware of a superhero trope that I didn't know existed before. * My take on the strongest and most ridiculous criticism behind 'Captain Marvel'. * [Brie Larson](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0488953/?ref_=tt_cl_t1) is an absolute delight. * We take [Samuel L. Jackson](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000168/?ref_=tt_cl_t2) for granted way too much. * [Ben Mendelsohn ](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0578853/?ref_=tt_cl_t3)is the surprise take away after watching 'Captain Marvel'. * I discuss what the most unnecessary aspect of 'Captain Marvel' was.

The Hollywood Remake Of 'Parinda'
Jun 16 2016 92 mins  
This episode is the first time that we compared two movies, remade by the same director, in Bollywood and Hollywood. Shah is joined by [Erin Fraser](https://mobile.twitter.com/erinefraser), co-host of [Bollywood Is For Lovers](https://audioboom.com/channel/bollywood-is-for-lovers), to compare Vidhu Vinod Chopra's original Bollywood movie Parinda, to his own Hollywood remake, Broken Horses. SHOW NOTES: Erin discusses how she stumbled onto [Bollywood](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bollywood) and why she does what she does. We get to know Erin and her thoughts on remakes; what she's indifferent about, and what annoys her. Shah spends a LONG time gushing about [Erin's show](https://audioboom.com/channel/bollywood-is-for-lovers). Which he claims he was not paid to do. Erin provides a Spoiler-free Synopsis of [Parinda.](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102636/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1) Erin and Shah discuss our mutual awe at Parinda and how ahead of its time it was for a Bollywood movie. They discuss [Vidhu Vinod Chopra](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0006765/?ref_=tt_ov_dr) and his influence in Bollywood, along with his different roles in the industry. Erin and Shah marvel at the terrible-ness of [Broken Horses.](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2503954/?ref_=nm_flmg_wr_3) It's almost like the director of both these movies, devolved in talent and ambition, over the years.

10: The Bollywood Remake Of Jane Austen's 'Emma'
Jan 14 2016 34 mins  
Join Samarpita Dutta and Shah Shahid on Episode 10 of the Split Screen Podcast as they compare 'Emma' (1996) and 'Aisha' (2010) based on the novel 'Emma' by Jane Austen. HIGHLIGHTS: Samarpita's origin story and how she was introduced to Bollywood. Samarpita discusses what she thinks of remakes in general. Shah has no patience to read the Jane Austen novel both movies were based on. Samarpita provides a Spoiler-free synopsis to ['Emma'.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_(1996_theatrical_film)) Samarpita loved the styling and costume design of 'Emma' given that it was a period piece. The Bollywood remake ['Aisha'](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aisha_(film)) was actually based on the original novel, and not ['Clueless'](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clueless_(film)) as most people think. We discuss how the social status themes translate very well from 'Emma' to 'Aisha'. Sonam Kapoor's role in 'Aisha' is most like her own personality. Shah struggles with which movie he likes better. Samarpita articulates the confusion very clearly! Shah & Sam discuss the differences with the characters in each movie and book as well. Shah & Sam agree that 'Aisha' is a lot better and more relatable than 'Emma'. CONTACT INFO: Samarpita’s articles on [BollyBrit](http://bollybrit.com/reviews-blog/?author=55d6ff4ce4b0be109fdde8ff).

7: The STAR WARS Saga Christmas Special
Dec 17 2015 67 mins  
On this episode host Shah Shahid is joined by Entertainment Editor of The Chicago Tribune and bonafide Star Wars superfine for a retrospective into the Star Wars universe and phenomenon, ahead of the release of The Force Awakens. SHOW NOTES: Meet Wendy: bonafide 'Star Wars' superfan! [ https://twitter.com/tvjedi ] Wendy recounts her introduction to, and experience with the 'Star Wars' Legacy. If for whatever reason, you have an aversion to TV, movies, pop culture, the internet and human interaction, and happen to know nothing about 'Star Wars', hear the Spoiler-free synopsis by Wendy. Wendy and I discuss why 'Star Wars' is such a big deal. I relate elements of the 'Star Wars' franchise to Bollywood, and why it may appeal to Bollywood fans. We debate the viewing order of all 6 'Star Wars' films: numerical, or order of theatrical release? Which themes were represented in each Trilogy, and how effective were they in the story? We discuss the accessibility of the Prequel Trilogy to the Original. It's Mark Hamill Versus Hayden Christensen as the leads of each Trilogy are compared! I make excuses for Hayden Christensen's acting skills in the Prequel Trilogy. Wendy suggests that the entire 'Star Wars' is a lonely attempt for the Emperor to find a friend. _sad face_ I state that the only distinction between Luke and Anakin, was that Anakin couldn't handle the pressure of being 'The First Hope'. (get it? 'Cuz Episode IV?) We outline our expectations and hopes from the new 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'. Wendy refutes a big fan-theory about the new movie, with conviction! My in-depth thoughts and film-by-film reviews and ratings on both the Original Trilogy here: [ https://blankpagebeatdown.com/star-wars-original-trilogy-review/ ] And the Prequel Trilogy here: [ https://blankpagebeatdown.com/star-wars-the-prequel-trilogy-review/ ] CONTACT INFO: Wendy's Twitter: https://twitter.com/tvjedi Follow the Podcast on Twitter: [@splitscreen_pod](www.twitter.com/splitscreen_pod) Follow Shah Shahid on Twitter: @theshahshahid [ https://twitter.com/theshahshahid ] Like Us On Facebook: Blank Page Beatdown [ https://www.facebook.com/blankpagebeatdown/ ] Want to be a guest on the show?

6: The Shahrukh Khan Remake Of Amitabh Bachchan`s Don
Nov 26 2015 42 mins  
We compare original Bollywood cult classic 'Don' to its 2006 remake with Shahrukh Khan with SRK superfan, Mohammed Baloch. HIGHLIGHTS! Meet Baloch: narcissistically unprofessional Podcast host of BollyCast & secret club dancer by night. Baloch wants to remake everything! Baloch and I discuss the business of remakes; should the creative be the main consideration or the business aspects of it? I make Baloch concede that creative reasons for making films, should be the main consideration. What was the original 'Don', and the impact it had on Bollywood at the time. Baloch compares 1978 'Don' to other films of the time, and doesn't think it holds up. The surprising sexism in the original 'Don'. The even more surprisingly physical portrayal of Zeenat Aman as Roma in the original 'Don'. The songs are integral to moving the plot forward. The Cheesiness of 1978 'Don' is part of the story, and doesn't harm it as bad as others. Random movie scenes remind Baloch of intricate Porn scenarios. In a surprising turn of events, Shahrukh Khan super fan Baloch loves his version of 'Don' from 2006. The portrayal of the Don character by both Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan are unique in their own ways. Shahrukh Khan has to work a lot harder to be intimidating as an Gangster, than Amitabh Bachchan. Influences of Shahrukh Khan's depiction of Don. Clues left in 2006 remake of 'Don' that revealed the twist ending of the remake!

5: The Bollywood Remake Of ‘Reservoir Dogs’
Nov 19 2015 33 mins  
This episode of Split Screen Podcast, features Nipun Chopra as we compare 'Reservoir Dogs' to it's Bollywood remake, 'Kaante'. HIGHLIGHTS! Meet Nipun: neuroscientist wannabe, former Bollywood podcaster, current soccer podcaster and an over all nice guy. Nipun thinks remakes without credit are plagiarism regardless of quality of the remake. I forget to record the show, and Nipun saves my ass, and I in turn make him blush. The amazing-ness of Reservoir Dogs is spelled out as we discuss how it was made. Harvey Keitel is one of the greatest actors ever. Nipun gets technical when describing his love for 'Reservoir Dogs'. How 'Kaante' tries too much to be like 'Reservoir Dogs'. Mahesh Manjrekar makes an amazing debut. Characters from 'Kaante' are amalgamations of multiple characters from 'Reservoir Dogs'. No one can imitate Tarantino's style of writing, even though Sanjay Gupta tries. Nipun breaks down his acting skills and analyzes how actors act. The apparent racism implied in 'Kaante' is not a thing. 'Kaante' relies too much on internal plot and camera devices to drive story forward, but it takes audience out of the moment. Quentin Tarantino knows about, and actually likes 'Kaante'.

Nov 12 2015 34 mins  
On this episode of the Split Screen Podcast, host Shah Shahid is joined by Sameer Dogra from the BollyCast Podcast, as they both gush over 'The Godfather' and its Bollywood remake, 'Sarkar'. SHOW NOTES: Shah & Sameer synopsize 'The Godfather' (1972) [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Godfather ] 'Sarkar' is director Ram Gopal Varma's tribute to Francis Ford Coppola. How 'Sarkar's (2005) [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarkar_(film) ] setting and backdrop, are still relevant in today's world. Differences in the story as it pertained to the family members in both films. How multiple characters from 'The Godfather' [ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068646/?ref_=nv_sr_1 ] were combined into individual characters in 'Sarkar'. The casting of 'Sarkar' [ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0432047/?ref_=nv_sr_3 ] based on characters from 'The Godfather' were genius!

3: The Tom Cruise Of Bollywood
Nov 06 2015 53 mins  
On this episode of the Split Screen Podcast, Kathy Gibson from Access Bollywood joins Shah Shahid again to point out just how much the Bollywood remake 'Bang Bang' goes out of their way to dumb down the female lead from Hollywood's 'Knight And Day'. SHOW NOTES: 'Knight And Day' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KnightandDay ] is a fun and light hearted action rom-com that is enjoyable for casual audiences. 'Bang Bang' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bang_Bang! ] further exasperates a Bollywood trope. Online dating was a missed opportunity for product tie-ins for 'Bang Bang'. I generalize the approaches of South Asian culture to relationships. Jimmy Shergill [ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0792116/?ref=nvsr1 ] is the Sean Bean [ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000293/?ref=nvsr1 ] of Bollywood. Hrithik's character in 'Bang Bang' is an incompetent and inconsiderate spy, brother and general human being.

2: The Bollywood Remake Of ‘Memento’
Nov 06 2015 35 mins  
On this episode of the Split Screen Podcast, Kathy Gibson from Access Bollywood joins Shah Shahid to discuss how the Hollywood cult hit 'Memento' (2000) was remade into Bollywood's 'Ghajini'. (2008) SHOW NOTES: Who is Christopher Nolan? [ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0634240/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 ] How 'Memento' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memento_(film) ] was made reflects the thought process of the main character. The Director of 'Ghajini' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghajini_(2008_film) ] in no way credits Nolan for 'Memento', instead attributes idea to coincidence.
