Check out this excellent scene from Satyajit Ray’s Shatranj Ke Khilari which is based on Munshi Premchand’s short story of the same name. It is about two friends Mirza Sajjad Ali (Sanjeev Kumar) and Mir Roshan Ali (Saeed Jaffrey), who are so obsessed with the game of chess that they neglect their wives and are indifferent to the kingdom of Awadh being seized by the East India Company.
A few more scenes from the movie.
Watch the full scene 😉
The scene where Mir Roshan Ali finds his nephew hiding in his wife’s bedroom 😉
The scene where the two friends start fighting after Sanjeev Kumar asks Saeed Jaffrey about the nephew who was hiding in the bedroom.
Had written a recco few years ago which I had posted here before.
Here is some interesting info about the movie.
