Show Notes

A special bonus episode! Just as we were about to despair, we found a copy of Choker Bali, the Aishwarya Rai Tagore movie, and so we sat down to discuss widowhood, tea, novelistic cinematography, and intertexuality. And of course, Pramit takes back any thing bad he ever said about Aishwarya Rai.

Episode 13: Salah Shabati

We're BAAACK! After much delay, we're finally back with season 2 of Calcutta Arthouse. This season, we move from the tropic heat of West Bengal to the humid shores of the Mediterannean, for a deep - but still irreverent -  dive into the films of Isreal.
