Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro

The Long Take

Aug 6 2023 • 28 mins

The Long Take is doing its first ever retrospective episode! Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro turns 40 this week, and we rewatched the cult classic and discovered that it still holds up.

We discuss our favourite scenes, the simmering anger under the film’s goofy surface, and appreciate the skill required to play a dead body on screen.

We also talk about how difficult it is for a film to rewire the audience’s brains, how impossible Naseeruddin Shah found this on set, and why it’s a good thing that a planned sequel was never made.

Hosted by Akhil Arora and Rohan Naahar,The Long Take is fully bootstrapped. Please consider donating if you enjoy our work.
