Kirayadar 1986

Kirayadar and Sanmanassullavarkku Samadhanam came out in 1986. The latter is a Malayalam movie on the travails of a landlord whose house is being siezed by his tenants. Kirayadar is similar but with some changes in the storyline. No, I am not here to tell you who copied from whom coz I dont care. When it comes to movies anytime before the era of Rohit Shetty,100 crore club and Sunny Leone I can bear all sequels and alarming fashions. Especially the eighties.

I dig the poster and the font for movie title. Doesnt it tell you the story in one look?

Oh comeon, go watch it. It may not have your fav stars or a Kapoor or a 'Vijay' but watch it for :

Old Bombay - travel the still uncongested Bombay streets with Raj Babbar when he tries to find his workplace. 

Eighties fashion - Watch Padmini flaunt the (Garden?) saris and churidaars of that era in her perfect figure. Speaking of who,I consider this amongst her best performances. Really,who is Babbar or rather where was he?

Utpal Dutt - perfect. old world charm

Vidya sinha - breezy as ever. No wonder the breezy Hrishikesh Mukherjee and breezier Basu Chatterjee took her in most of their breeziest movies.
