A documentary series about the B movies that emerged from Hindi cinema in the 90s and the truly fascinating characters who made them, CMDT is a love letter to the movies. It’s funny, sad, nostalgic and full of surprise anecdotes. If you’re the kind of person who enjoys a Bollywood podcast, this documentary is for you!  Next, we discuss the new Pakistani film JOYLAND (23.00) which is expected to premiere in India in March. Asim had a chance to not only view the movie but also interview the director Saim Sadiq (51.15).
