Masala Zindabad

23 Nov

Yup, it’s up and running.

We kick things off with a podcast featuring MemsaabStory – part one of a wide ranging discussion about the largely forgotten/ unknown/ nameless character actors of Hindi cinema. The feed is in the sidebar.

I swear we aren’t on meth. That’s just my poor editing skills at play. We did our best to follow the advice of all you lovely people who wrote in; I hope it worked.

Thanks for listening!

    I never said I wasn’t on meth.

      The midwest US, current home of me and former home of both of you, is FULL of meth labs, after all. We have to have ID to get Sudafed!

    Cool! Was awesome to actually *hear* memsaab’s story. 😀 I had to rely on context though, to distinguish Greta’s voice from Beth’s (coz they sounded a lot alike, initially) but by the time I was on part 2, I was able to place them correctly. And what meth? Y’all do sound pretty put together. And I really liked how the conversation fades out to, well, the wonderfully wonky fade-out music of ‘Duniya mein, logon kho’ – Kicked butt! Good work, girl.

    I’m not at all old-Bollywood savvy, so it was a nice little intro to the character actors of yore. All this reminded me of Ramsu’s (now-forgotten) blog, particularly its subtitle — “Curious snippets from an insatiable Bollywood extra.” (The guy seems to have all but forgotten his current blog too, it seems… where are you, Ramsu?).

    BTW Beth’s Affair to Remember recollection in part 1 paired with memsaab’s quest for the mysterious sombero (man) in part 2 put a smile on my face… way to go, sweet ladies.

    PS: And Amrita, what’s with you touting Truth as cheaper than the regular stuff?? I thought Truth was always lofty and unattainable and above all, bloody expensive (monetarily and otherwise)!! 😛

      Not when it comes in little pills cooked up in some kid’s trailer 😀
