Rajyasree and Abhinandan while discussing Shahid Kapoor’s performance in Farzi:

Rajyasree: Four long episodes of him not doing anything. It’s like Udta Punjab. His character is always the same.

Abhinandan: You know you’ve convinced me not to watch the show. I was planning to watch the rest of the show but now I’m not going to.

Rajyasree: (Laughing) No, you watch. Kahaani mein twist hai.

Abhinandan: If it’s still not picking up…

Rajyasree: It’s not. Fourth episode I stopped.

Abhinandan: OK then I reverse my plans. Sorry.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen review the series The Romantics and Farzi; the documentary Elephant Whisperers;  and the Adani Anthem.
