Silver Screen Pictures’ Sardar is a successful box-office film. It was not meant to be anything more than that. The producers make no other pretence.

In this film, the writer and director claim to have dealt with some social issues. Though they got their plot almost ready-made, the innovations in treatment are simply bewildering. There is the same

But despite these engaging […]

Shantaram’s Dahej is a picture of many fine qualities, polished, perfect and refined in almost all respects. There are but a few lapses but they are mostly insignificant ones and the real glory

This is Seth Jagat Narain’s one more venture into the field of productions. Seth Jagat Narain is today the leading distributor for North India and a financial magnate from whom we expected a better picture than Gauna. Not that there is anything bad about Gauna but at the same there is nothing very good about […]
