Summer Movie Viewing

Compiled by Chitra Parayath

Do Aankhen Barah Haath

In the province of Aundh in South Maharashtra, there was a king who experimented with prisoners by not placing them in the conventional jail but making them put their skills to constructive use during the period of the sentence. Ace veteran Marathi writer-poet-actor G.D. Madgulkar hailed from this region and once mentioned it casually to V. Shantaram.


Rajesh Khanna and the newcomer Amitabh Bachhan scored a big hit with this weepie.

Achhut Kanya

Himanshu Rai, proprietor of Bombay Talkies, the production company-cum-studio, made ‘Achhut Kanya’ way back in 1936 and the film is an all time classic.


Subhash Ghai's Khalnayak is one of the best films that released in 1993 -- a year that also saw the release of films like Baazigar, Darr, Aankhen, Damini and Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke.

Tere Ghar ke samne

Dev Anand and Nutan's four-film association (Paying Guest, Baarish and Manzil were the other three) culminated with Tere Ghar Ke Saamne.

Guru Dutt’s Aar Paar

A Guru Dutt classic you should not miss.


B R Chopra showed gumption decades ago when he made two successful films without songs in the 1960s -- Kanoon (1960) and Ittefaq (1969).

Gol Maal

Still the best bet for chuckles and loud guffaws.

Amar Akbar Anthony:

Loads of fun. Amit, Vinod Khanna, Rishi, Parveen Babi, Shabana and Neetu Singh spice up this improbable tale


A Hrishikesh Mukherjee's weepie but a timeless classic starring the late thespian Ashok Kumar.

Gulzar’s film delicately explores the complicated relationship between a old bachelor (Sanjeev Kumar) and a young prostitute (Sharmila Tagore).
