Laaga Chunri Mein Daag (2007) and its inspirations.

27 Feb, 2012 | Inspired Movies (Alphabetical) / L

Pardeep Sarkar struck gold with his first movie, PARINEETA (2005) which was a remake of the Classic Bimal Roy masterpiece with the same title released more than half a century back in 1953. But working on the similar lines of his first attempt, the director went on to make another remake sort of a film as his second venture, titled LAAGA CHUNRI MEIN DAAG in 2007 with Rani Mukherjee in the lead, which had acute similarities with all the different language movies mentioned below:

1. AAINA (1977) (Hindi) – K. Balachander’s film had exactly the same storyline wherein Mumtaz played the girl, giving herself away to the cruel world of men, in order to meet her families urgent needs.

2. EK DIN PRATIDIN (1979-80) (Bengali) –
This was a Mrinal Sen thought provoking classic revolving around a similar theme in which the bread winning daughter of a middle class family goes missing one night. And then the chaos leads to a further unexpected crisis in the family.

3. DOGHI (1995) (Marathi) –
In this Sumitra Bhave and Sunil Sukthankar directed Marathi film, also there are two sisters in a family. And here too the elder one moves out to the city to work as a prostitute for giving her family a better life.

This movie is the adaptation of premchand\'s Seva sadan......
Bobby Sing

I dont think so it was any clear adaptation of Seva Sadan.....However the writer of Aaina may have taken a mere idea from it but SEVA SADAN actually starts from the story of a married girl.

SEVA SADAN was originally written in Urdu under the title Bazaar-e-Husn, but it was first published in Hindi under the title Seva-Sadan in the starting of the Twentieth century. And its main plot goes like this :

"It is the tale of an unhappy housewife of an old person, who is unhappy with her marriage and then goes on to be instantly famous being a courtesan. Later on she reforms herself working for an orphanage."

So I dont think its a direct adaptation of above given Munshi Premchand's plot.
