Geek Fruit: Celebrating Fan Subculture and Community

Aditya posted on 09 March


Geek Fruit is a community bringing together enthusiasts of pop and geek culture; discussing and dissecting books, video games, comics, movies and more.

Filling a Hole

Started in 2015, Geek Fruit is an interesting community. While there are many of us who love superhero films, classic comics {and graphic novels}, and the ever-improving video game genre, it is nigh on impossible to find a forum to discuss our opinions.

After you watched the new episode of Game of Thrones, you talk to your friends. When the latest Avengers movie came out and you thought it was crap, you told your friends. And when you won that unbeatable level in the latest video game on your shelf, you called your friends.

This desire to discuss your media loves and hates is what Geek Fruit seeks to tap into, except this time you’ll be talking with other enthusiasts leading to a perhaps more intriguing debate than just, ‘That was a bad movie’.

The Future

Started by friends Tejas, Jishnu, Basabdatta, Dinkar and Vijayeta, Geek Fruit is a subculture community that stems from a love for all things fantasy and sci-fi. The platform plans to focus on three things- discussion of content that exists, encouragement and promotion of Indian talent, and {eventually} creation of original content.

Content on Site

On their website Geek Fruit hosts a regular podcast {with 10 episodes already}, discussing everything from underrated TV shows to the Pune Comic Con to prepping for the Deadpool movie. There is even a Nerditorial section and blog section where the founders, and friends, pen their thoughts about contemporary nerd culture.

The five-member team even have plans to start a web series {which we think is sorely missing in India!}.

Subculture community

While Geek Fruit is currently based out of Mumbai, they are an online community and platform and as such are open to all. They are looking for writers and are in a community-building phase at present. So if you’ve been dying to learn about the new season of Daredevil but don’t know where to go, look no further than Geek Fruit.
