Nov 12, 2015, 05:01 AM

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=nvsr_1 ] were combined into individual characters in 'Sarkar'.

The casting of 'Sarkar' [ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0432047/?ref=nvsr_3 ] based on characters from 'The Godfather' were genius!
