While talking about the new tennis docuseries Break Point:

Abhinandan: We dropped all the names (of tennis players) we had. Toh we are done. Abhi hume aur nahi pata hai iske bare mein.

Rajyasree: I played tennis also.

Abhijeet: Oh, lovely.

Abhinandan: After this I’ll do the uncle joke; “love all”. Beta, love all (laughs).

Abhinandan, Rajyasree and Abhijeet burst out laughing.

PS. Abhinandan cracks another joke: What’s the biggest racket at Wimbledon? Guess.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri, Rajyasree Sen review the film The Menu; web series Trial By Fire; awards for S S Rajamouli’s film RRR; Shakira’s new song on ex Gerard Piqué; and the new McDonalds and Mahindra ads.

The hosts are joined by NL subscriber Abhijeet Dangat to review the Netflix docuseries Break Point.
