Plotaholics Podcast, Episode 163 – Blinded by the Light

Video Edition:

Audio Edition:

This week the Plotaholics take a step into an amazing world as we are ‘Blinded By The Light’. This 2019 film starring Viveik Kalra is based on the memoir of Sarfraz Manzoor titled ‘Greetings from Bury Park: Race, Religion, and Rock ‘n’ Roll.’

This film sees Kalra play Javad Khan, a timid boy living in 1980s UK during a difficult time when racial tensions were high. As he’s looking to find his place in the world, he’s introduced to the music of Bruce Springsteen which changes his life forever. 

This film is…just amazing. Period. There’s nothing more that can be said. This is the first entry into the Plotaholics Criterion Collection (final name pending). 

Kick back, relax, listen to us wax philosophical about our musical loves…and a little about this film. Because that is what this film does; what is your transformative moment, and how it made you feel!

So, enjoy our discussion on ‘Blinded By The Light.’
