Rated 5 out of
Fascinating stuff! Treat for movie buffs.
It has been barely a few months when I came across the word PODCAST for the very first time i.e. POD (ipod) + BROADCAST! And now, I am absolutely in love with it. Coming to this show presented by the charismatic voice of Shah Shahid, it's an absolute treat for movie buffs. Especially if you are into Bollywood. The SPLIT SCREEN PODCAST compares original films with it's remakes. And well, I am happy to say this that all of the six episodes are rich in content, full of delicious conversations. Talking about Shah, the host of the show, he is doing a marvellous job. He is simply fun to listen. Likewise, so are his guests on the show. The runtime of each episode on average is around 30-35 minutes. And it all passes without even a snatch of boredom. Well, it all depends. If you into movies, Shah has lots of fascinating stuff for you to talk about. But if you are not, you can try listening to one of his episode's for his voice only. Highly recommended by me. Especially for all the cinephile's who have some interest in Indian films. It's worth your time.
