Yesterday sometime in the afternoon I was watching Chalti ka naam gaadi. A lovely movie with all the three Kumar brothers acting: Ashok, Kishore and Anoop. Decent plot, lovely songs (Babu samjho ishare, Ek ladki bheegi bhagi si, haal kaisa hai janab ka, Main sitaron ka tarana...), the chemistry between Kishore Kumar and Madhu Bala, that vintage look, Kishore oodle-oodle-oei, refreshing comedy, and set in good old Mumbai.
One hardly gets to see life in such close quarters. The blend of human emotions with acting, the varied themes and sub-themes running simultaneously and culminating in the climax... Unfortunately like most of my movie watching sessions, the power cut left me without reaching the end. Now I'll have to watch it sometime later - God knows when! There have been times when I have completed watching a movie, in bits and pieces, only after a couple of years.
