For this episode, we watched Khabi Khushi Khabie Gham, the iconic Karan Johar movie that shaped Y2K culture in South Asia. It has a special place in our hearts, but how does it fare on an intersectional feminist film rating system?

Once every month, we host our “Saucy Deep Dive” episodes. On these, we do a more casual breakdown of classics we all love and love-to-hate. And sometimes we’ll have guests join in on the fun.

Our framework for these discussions is based on the Sauce Meter, discussed in Episode 1 (For more details check out our blog https://bit.ly/3iNnKaT).

The questions we ask ourselves address patriarchal, classist, casteist, and ableist structures (and more) in South Asian culture. While still not comprehensive by any means, it sets up the base for a more critical examination of the popular movies we all know.

Our next episode will examine: Sex and Sexuality in South Asian Media
