While discussing a scene from Ludo, where six-year-old Mini's parents must choose between retaining their house help or keeping their pet dog:

Abhinandan: The moral of the story is you must know how to cook.

Rajyasree: That’s what! That’s why I cook, na, so that no one can…

Abhinandan: That’s why I never tell anyone to pick anyone between that person and me because I know I’ll never be picked because I don't know how to cook.

Rajyasree: Because I don’t know what quality contribution...Yours will be to shout at the person.

Abhinandan: That I can. I can offer that facility.

Rajyasree: Different pitches you can do it in.

Abhinandan: I can offer that facility. Regular yelling I can do.

Rajyasree: And a few punches now and then also.

Abhinandan: That I don’t indulge in but you can keep spreading rumours. But now the good thing is that you have such little credibility, no one believes in anything you say.

Rajyasree and Abhinandan burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of other stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen discuss the films Ludo and Soorarai Pottru; Season 4 of the Netflix original The Crown; the works of Soumitra Chatterjee; and a lot more.

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
