WrittenBy:NL Team

While discussing the 69th National Awards: 

Abbas: Kriti Sanon also won the best actor (female) award for Mimi this time. 

Nainika: I managed to watch a little over half of it. 

Abbas: I watched all of Mimi…It was one of those drunken party night watches for us…

Nainika: Really? You watched a movie about surrogacy at a drunken party night?

Abbas: Yes! Because that’s how seriously the film took the issue.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Nainika Rathore and Abbas Momin review the movie Ghoomer, the series Taali, Star Wars Ahsoka and the winners of the 69th National Awards.
