S2. E8 – Monsoon Wedding Watch Party!

Puja and Anju finally sat Miranda down to watch Monsoon Wedding. With Puja’s fully stocked snack bar and plenty of drinks (of course), we laughed, cried, sighed, shook our fists and cheered to this film.

Afterward we gathered around the AT2020’s to fangirl over Mira Nair and our experiences of watching her films over the years, her accolades, and her almost involvement in the Harry Potter universe!!
