Episode 10: Shoojit Sircar’s latest film October contemplates the journey of Dan (Varun Dhawan) as he comes to appreciate his life while facing his colleague Shiuli’s (Banita Sandhu) brush with death.
A quick round of Geeton Ka Ghanchakkar considers Manmarziyan from Lootera (2013) and Manwa from October. Filmi Khabrein has a quick discussion of the upcoming Sanjay Dutt bio-pic Sanju, Vikramaditya Motwane’s new film Bhavesh Joshi and the reuniting of a popular Bollywood on-screen pair.
In Bollywood Behes, the conversation centres on October as a reflective film. Aparita Bhandari and Baisakhi Roy debate whether Varun Dhawan, one of Bollywood’s hot new stars, is truly able to get under the skin of the main character Dan; and how writer Juhi Chaturvedi and Shoojit Sircar are crafting a new language in Bollywood films.
