Awful and Awesome Ep 325: Mumbai Film Festival, OMG 2, Mumbai Diaries S2

The pop culture podcast that isn’t afraid to pop the bubble.

WrittenBy:NL Team

While discussing OMG 2:

Rajyasree: I do think it’s a brave topic to pick up for, not a Pankaj Tripathi film, but an Akshay Kumar film...Although, he did do Padman as well. 

Deepanjana: I think we have social issues in India just so that Akshay Kumar can make films on them.

Rajyasree: That’s what I was thinking!

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Rajyasree Sen and Deepanjana Pal review the movies OMG 2, Aattam, and Bye Bye Tiberias; the new season of Mumbai Diaries; and the new House of Masaba ad with Kareena Kapoor.
