Movie Marathon!

I am so glad my mom's collecting classic hindi movies!

Right now I have Silsila, Padosan, Masoom, Satte pe Satta, Pakeezah, Chasme Baddoor, Chupke chupke, Golmaal and Bawarchi stacked right next to my laptop - today is gonna be awesome!

The teenagers can keep their 3 idiots', Patiala House's and "Anjaana Anjaani's, I prefer the quintessential Hindi movies: old and clichéd, full of drama and songs - so very Indian! Ya know, no matter how many schmaaart movies you show me, I'm always gonna remain a purani-hindi-film buff. Kya karein, aaj kal ke logon mein woh baat kahan...

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go swoon over Raaj Kumar
आपके पाऊँ देखे, बहुत हसीं हैं; इन्हें ज़मीन पर मत उतारियेगा , मैले हो जायेंगे....


  1. I never seen one, perhaps you could be so kind to recomend me some of them.

  2. Hehehe...for watching most Bollywood movies, you'll have to keep logical reasoning aside :P

    That being said, you could start with newer movies and the ones in english like Dhobi Ghat, Rang De Basanti, Dil Chahta Hai, Mr and Mrs Iyer , Monsoon Wedding etc.

    Or you could start with old Hindi classics (be careful: Song-dance sequences ahead)like Pyaasa and Kagaz ke Phool (I haven't watched either, but the are supposed to be classics) basically Guru Dutt movies and the ones starring Raj Kapoor. You could also try Kishore Kumar flicks like Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi and movies by Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

    Also, Satyajit Ray, one of India's greatest - The Apu Triology, Charulata etc etc..
