Some of the important issues that we discussed in the podcast:

1. Thoughts on anti-caste films that are made in Tamil or other south Indian film industries as compared to films that are made in Mumbai Film Industry. Are films from the South more conscious and aware about caste as compared to Mumbai ones?

2.He has critically analysed the films and Politics of Mani Ratnam. In his essay for Huffington Post he wrote about “The Right-Wing Hindu, Hypernationalist Politics of Mani Ratnam’s Films.” We discuss in detail about his views about filmmaking and politics of director Mani Ratnam.

3. About the quality of film criticism in India.

4. Rajesh’s thoughts on why Mumbai film industry can’t make any good anti-caste films ?

5. He explains about how Rajnikant choose to work with Pa. Ranjith and why it was a ‘shrewd choice’ ?

And so much more.
