Old Hindi films

Besides the big three — Mother India, Mughal-e-Azam and Sholay, what other old Hindi films do you think have the potential to make it to GA and FA? — Ssven2 Speak 2 me 09:01, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Potential based on it's current status or on it's popularity? --Krimuk|90 (talk) 09:09, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Both actually. Raj Kapoor films IMHO like Mera Naam Joker and Shree 420 can make it to FA and GA respectively. Bobby too has GA potential. Face-smile.svgSsven2 Speak 2 me 09:11, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, definitely. Raj Kapoor's earlier films such as Awara and Sangam are wonderful. I am a bit critical of his later works like Bobby, Ram Teri Ganga Maili, Prem Rog etc. I feel those were quite sexist and unnecessarily exploitative of his leading ladies. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 09:17, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Forgot Awara there. Good selection. Other than his films, maybe Golmaal? — Ssven2 Speak 2 me 09:19, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Ah, Golmaal. Wonderful film. The charm of Hrishikesh Mukherjee is unparallelled. The film of his I love the most is Chupke Chupke. Always makes me feel good about life. :) --Krimuk|90 (talk) 09:23, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
To be honest, I watched its Tamil version Thillu Mullu first. Despite being a remake, TM has a flavour of its own. Golmaal was pretty good too. — Ssven2 Speak 2 me 09:29, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
I didn't know Golmaal had a Tamil remake. But since it's Balachander, I'm sure it's good. :) --Krimuk|90 (talk) 09:32, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
What matters more is, it would be great to see an FA in every decade of Bollywood. Already, the 50's, 60's, 70's, 2000's and 2010's are complete. Jeff is trying to make DDLJ (90's) to FA status. Hope someone does the same with any 30's or 80's film. Kailash29792 (talk) 09:33, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
@Kailash29792: You forgot 40's. Chandralekha had a Hindi version. Face-smile.svg BTW, for 30's the best bet would be Alam Ara, I think. — Ssven2 Speak 2 me 09:36, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
True. Apart from a Mr. India or perhaps a Maine Pyar Kiya, I don't think any Bollywood film of the 80s has a cult popularity as the films from other decades. The 80s, I think was quite a dark phase for commercial Hindi films. Though art-cinema from directors like Shyam Benegal and Govind Nihalani soared during that time. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 09:37, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
What about QSQT? Face-smile.svgSsven2 Speak 2 me 09:39, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
To a lesser extent, yeah, QSQT as well. Mostly for the music I think. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 09:41, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Any of you interested in Anand (1971)?♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:29, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Kailash and Ssven may be interested in that one. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 11:52, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
How can we forget Ek Duuje Ke Liye, Arth and Saagar while talking about cult films of the 80s. And yes Benegal and Nihalani were at their peak during the 80s. This was the golden age of Parallel Hindi cinema. Anyone willing to work on Ardh Satya? Vensatry (ping) 11:32, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, great films, but not as widely popular as the Sholays or MEAs, or HAHKs or DDLJs, right? Personally, I consider Arth and Ardh Satya to be far better cinema than the more popular ones combined. But that's just me. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 11:52, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Those films became popular mainly because of the stardom of the actors unlike art films where the director is the real hero. That's the case even down south. I see Arth as a "Middle cinema" as it fits into neither of the categories. Vensatry (ping) 12:22, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, and those were superb, without the traditional trappings of melodramatic commercial films of that era. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 00:50, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Arrangement of Best Director nominees in ceremony lists

Quick question. Do you think the winners and nominees for Best Director in each ceremony category should be arranged in alphabetical order by either person or film? Someone changed the order a few days ago.

--Birdienest81 (talk) 20:04, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Every other award list is arranged alphabetically, right? This one should be consistent with those. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 00:49, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

On what basis you say this to be a much "nicer" image? :) Vensatry (ping) 07:23, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Oh, I simply think she look's very good in it. Do change it back if you disagree. :) --Krimuk|90 (talk) 11:52, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Yep, she looks stunning in this pic! Agreed :) Vensatry (ping) 17:48, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I too do. A bold girl indeed. :) Well Vensatry, did you watch Uttama Villain? Pavanjandhyala (talk) 03:41, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
I am a bit ignorant on this, but can either of you tell me what the controversy on Uttama Villain is about? I really enjoyed Hassan's previous film Vishwaroopam, but I think the sequel is in a limbo. Any reason why? --Krimuk|90 (talk) 03:45, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Three issues with Uttama Villain. First, a plagiarism charge for allegedly copying an image taken by French photographer Eric Lafforgue related to Theyyam art. Later, a case filed by VHP on the song(s) "Iraniyan Naadagam" (Tamil) / "Naa Rudhirapu Oka" (Telugu) for insulting Hindu gods and inability of clearing debts on May 1 being a bank holiday thus delaying the film's release in the last minute and the shows got cancelled. First one was dismissed as Theyyam was a 1000 year old Indian art. Second, it is common sense that Hiranyakashipu would speak wrong about Vishnu always (provided you are familiar with the epic of Narasimha). And for Viswaroopam 2, time should tell the answer. I am really waiting for Papanasam and its trailer impressed me a lot. Pavanjandhyala (talk) 03:55, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
I am on a break but I wish to state my opinion on Uttama Villain. It has everything one can expect from a Kamal film. The film is a bit dragging at places but it has some funny moments. The Balachander-Haasan conversations deserve a mention. The reason maybe why "Iraniyan Naadagam" had a controversy was maybe because Nasser, the antagonist, dresses up as Narasimha so as to show himself as the true hero of the play, inadvertently kills himself by striking himself with his claws, which were poisoned by Pooja Kumar, who is the kingdom's princess who wishes to dethrone Nasser. The concept of Narasimha killing himself (actually it is the antagonist) might have caused the controversy. — Ssven2 Speak 2 me 04:24, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Thanks for the info guys. The film has a limited release here, so I guess I'll watch it next weekend. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 05:36, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@Pavanjandhyala: No, I'm yet to see UV. Just saw OK Kanmani and Kanchana 2 over the weekend. As for UV, a friend of mine (a die-hard Kamal fan) had posted something like this: "If u dunno how to admire Kamal then the movie is gonna be a sleeping pill 4 u." I don't think there are positive reviews for the film. Vensatry (ping) 13:03, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

@Vensatry: I watched its Telugu version with my friend yesterday. It was okay for me as i am comfortable with such endings but poor fellow, he couldn't digest the climax of the film which was this. If you watch the film, you shall understand. Don't assume anything else going by that poster. Pavanjandhyala (talk) 13:09, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
@Pavanjandhyala: Will watch it over the weekend Vensatry (ping) 17:33, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Hamari Adhuri Kahani

And finally she has collaborated with Mahesh Bhatt. The trailer looks good. Didn't know that the story was inspired from Bhatt's parents! Vensatry (ping) 17:33, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Yep, the trailer looks good albeit a bit too melodramatic for my liking. I have never been a fan of Mohit Suri's work though I hope some of Vidya and Rao's magic has rubbed off on him. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 01:24, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
