Episode 73: Chandralekha (1997) – While You Were Sleeping (1995)

A new attempt at The Other Banana Podcast. We are taking two films – an original and a remake or plagiarized version of the same, and discussing about the merits, demerits and memories associated with the two. In this episode, we talk about Priyadarshan’s 1997 Malayalam film Chandralekha starring Mohanlal, Sukanya, Pooja Batra, Innocent, Sreenivasan, Nedumudi Venu et al and the film it was ripped off from – John Turteltaub’s romcom While You Were Sleeping with Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman and Peter Gallagher.

Deepauk and Anantha are joined by regular guest Amrita and they also rue the coma status of the romcom genre as a whole. Listen on.
