Tuesday At The Movies: Kissi Se Na Kehna & Nauker

April was a month of movies. I watched quite a few and am hopefully on target for my 100 movies this year challenge. I also managed to watch a fair number of old hindi movies.

Actually 9 out of 10 movies I watched were Hindi and 2 were really old. The other stand-out thing was YouTube Movies. Except for Lucy, I watched all the other movies on YouTube and for free!

Here’s two movies I watched in the last four weeks –

Kissi se na kehna

 

Rating: ***/5 – Could Watch
Release: 1983
Language: Hindi
Director: Hrishikesh Mukherjee
Actors: Utpal Dutt, Saeed Jaffrey, Farooq Shaikh, and Deven Verma
Music: Bappi Lahiri
Cinematography: Jaywant Pathare
Editing: Khan Zaman Khan

 

 

A cast of comedians like Utpal Dutt, Saeed Jaffrey, Farooq Shaikh, and Deven Verma you can’t go to wrong in the laughter department. This is a movie about one lie and then the many lies told to cover the first lie.
Nothing spectacular and in today’s time it may seem a little slow both in story and humour. But back in those time this would have been a fun movie.

 

Nauker

 

 

Rating: ****/5 – Could Watch
Release: December 7, 1979 (India)
Language: Hindi
Director: Ismail Memon
Actors: Sanjeev Kumar, Jaya Bhaduri, Yogeeta Bali, Mehmood, Lalita Pawar
Music: R. D. Burman

 

 

 

A story about disguises and deception. Amar a widower switches roles with his ManFriday and goes to find a mother for his child. The family he is staying with has a maid, Geeta. Amar finds himself being drawn to Geeta.
Geeta reminded me of Cinderella, the sister who is treated as a pariah but is the most good-natured and beautiful of the sisters.
Of all the songs my favourite was the lullaby – Chandni Re Jhoom.
This movie is a simple entertainer.

I’ve got a 8 more to go and I’ll share them over the next few weeks.

I’m always on the lookout for must watch old Hindi movies, which ones would you recommend?
