Awful and Awesome Ep 339: Fighter, Anyone But You, American Nightmare

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

WrittenBy:NL Team

While discussing Monkey Man:

Nainika: It was poorly-lit, very dark.

Abbas: That’s artsy lighting. 

Nainika: I’ve had enough of that.

Abbas: Darkness in the dungeon represents darkness in the character’s soul.

Nainika: Yes, the curtains were blue, Abbas.

(Both laugh.)

This and a whole lot of awful and awesome as Nainika Singh Rathore and Abbas Momin review the films Fighter and Anyone But You, series American Nightmare, trailer of Monkey Man, and the Paris Fashion Week.

Why should I pay for news?

Independent journalism is not possible until you pitch in. We have seen what happens in ad-funded models: Journalism takes a backseat and gets sacrificed at the altar of clicks and TRPs.

Stories like these cost perseverance, time, and resources. Subscribe now to power our journalism.
