Film fest of classical movies to be held at Bharat Bhavan

Friday, 14 February 2020 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

A four-day film festival of classical movies will be held at Bharat Bhavan. The festival will be held under celebration of its 38th foundation day. The festival will kick start from Saturday.

The festival will begin with screening of the film Mughal-e-Azam. It is a 1960 Indian epic historical drama film directed by K. Asif and produced by Shapoorji Pallonji. Starring Prithviraj Kapoor, Madhubala, Durga Khote, and Dilip Kumar, it follows the love affair between Mughal Prince Salim (who went on to become Emperor Jahangir) and Anarkali, a court dancer. Salim's father, Emperor Akbar, disapproves of the relationship, which leads to a war between father and son.

On Sunday, Hindi film Pakeezah will be screened. Pakeezah is a 1972 Indian film, written and directed by Kamal Amrohi, who was known for his perfectionism.

The music is by Ghulam Mohammed and Naushad Ali. The film starred Meena Kumari, Raaj Kumar, Ashok Kumar, Nadira, D.K. Sapru and Veena . Meena Kumari's performance as a golden-hearted Lucknow nautch-girl drew major praise. However, this was to be Meena Kumari's last performance.

On Monday, Hindi film Kala Paani will be screened. Kala Pani is a 1958 Hindi movie, produced by Dev Anand for Navketan Films and directed by Raj Khosla. The movie is a remake of the 1955 Bengali film Sabar Upaarey which itself was based on A.J. Cronin's 1953 novel Beyond This Place.  The film stars Dev Anand, Madhubala, Nalini Jaywant and Agha. The film's music is by Sachin Dev Burman, and the lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Marking the conclusion of film festival, the Hindi film Junoon will be screened on Tuesday.
