Abhinandan talks about his recent watchlist:

Abhinandan: Are you familiar with A-ha the band? 

Rajyasree: Yes.

Abhinandan: So there’s a film about them which I’ll talk about next time.

Rajyasree: The first time Grammys was shown on Doordarshan was when A-ha performed outside the studio Take On Me.

Abhinandan: I don’t think that’s the first time the Grammys was shown on Doordarshan.

Rajyasree: I have a feeling.

Abhinandan: That feeling is not true because Grammys has been shown for long, like from Michael Jackson’s time I have watched the Grammys.

Rajyasree: Aha! (Fake laugh.)

Abhinandan and Rajyasree burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and  Rajyasree Sen are joined by Siya stars Vineet Kumar Singh and Pooja Pandey and director Manish Mundra to review the new film. They also talk about the second season of the web series Indian Predator, the car safety commercial featuring Akshay Kumar, Pakistani talk shows, and Primetime Emmy Awards 2022.
