In this episode we discuss a pair of films that dramatize deadly dealings between the Bombay police force and the criminal underworld.

Show Notes:

(INTERVAL (“Babli Badmaash” from Shootout at Wadala)

  • Shootout at Wadala

  • It takes A LOT of bullets to kill John Abraham

  • Item numbers: “Laila" and “Aala Re Aala

  • Criminal motivations

  • A kill or be killed world

  • (according to Matt, Mastizaade is still the worst film ever featured on this podcast)

  • Clichéd dialogues and one-liners

  • John Abraham’s “guns”

  • Mildly sexy sex

  • How much do these films assume we know about these events?

  • imfdb

  • The morality of enjoying violent movies and becoming desensitized to violence
