Rajnigandha - Bobby Talks Cinema

If you have seen “Basu Chatterjee” movies then you must be familiar with his simple narration & middle class society stories filmed beautifully. "Rajnigandha" also has a simple but impressive story about how a heart keeps changing its preferences and likings like a pendulum, but also returns fast to its normal state seeing the reality.

Vidya Sinha feels this change in her love life when she meets Dinesh Thakur in Bombay, but later decides to returns to her first love, Amol Palekar giving it a serious thoguht. The melodious songs of the movie, have some real meaningful lyrics if you listen to them carefully. It is a true example of simple and straight movies, made in the 70s & 80s by our talented directors without any technical or graphical special effects and 5.1 surround sounds. Sadly, films like "Rajnigandha" are much better than most of the movies being made today with lavish budgets and resources. A lovable treat to watch, specially for the lovers.

Directed By Basu Chatterjee
Starring : Amol Palekar, Vidya Sinha and Dinesh Thakur
Music By Salil Chaudhary

Late Shafi Inamdaar's directorial venture “Hum Dono” starring Rishi Kapoor & Nana Patekar follows the main storyline of "Rainman". But here instead of an autistic brother (Dustin Hoffman), the director opts for a normal brother played by Nana Patekar.

The story goes in a similar manner where Nana Patekar is made the heir of a large wealth by his illegitmate father. The other son, Rishi Kapoor, when told the truth, goes out to bring his new unknown brother back with him to where he belongs. Rishi’s role is played by Tom Cruise in the English Original.
 
Though "Rainman" focuses mainly on the autistic brother and his extraordinary mathematical ability, "Hum Dono" focuses on the undisclosed relationships within the family and the cold vibes between two brothers.

V-Shantaram - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

V. Shantaram is one of the most respected and well known names in Indian Film Industry who have majorly contributed in the progress of Indian Cinema. His movie were always based on new & innovative concepts, which had a social message for the society along with a high entertainment value for the viewers. And one of his famous and widely appreciated movies probably inspired Hollywood filmmakers too.

A US Army Officer is assigned a duty to train 12 convicted murderers for a mass assassination mission. This is the plot for “The Dirty Dozen” a film made in 1967 directed by Robert Aldrich. Sounds very familiar to “Do Ankhen Barah Haath” made by V. Shantaram in 1957 which was exactly on the similar lines. Though the English Classic is said to be based on a novel by E. M Natanson, which was published in the early sixties. But still Shantaram’s Classic came earlier than that in 1957.
 
One argument in this context can be given that Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai” was made in 1954, which may be the main inspiration source for both the above mentioned movies. It is quite possible, but in “Do Ankhen Barah Haath”, Shantaram made a significant contribution to the theme, wherein the convicts were not fighting with anyone or saving a village from any dacoits. They were only being transformed to be good, law biding citizens by the officer. So a fresh new & socially relevant angle was there in the Indian Masterpiece which may have also inspired the makers of “The Dirty Dozen”.
 
Interestingly, in the later years two of India's leading film-makers Ramesh Sippy & Subhash Ghai, got inspired with the same thought of "Do Ankhen Barah Haath", and came up with their own classic versions as "SHOLAY" and "KARMA", wherein the only difference was that in "Karma" there were 3 and in "Sholay" there were 2 convicts instead of 12.
 
And there was only one person responsible for all above mentioned masterpieces and he was The Legendary V. Shantaram.
