Tanqeed Film Festival – Chashme Buddoor

Check out the classic comedy Chashme Buddoor as part of the Tanqeed Film Festival.

Chashme Buddoor is a 1981 romantic comedy film starring Farooq Shaikh, Deepti Naval, Rakesh Bedi, Ravi Baswani and Saeed Jaffrey. The film is directed by Sai Paranjpye and produced by Gul Anand. The film is about three students; Siddharth (Farooq Shaikh), Omi (Rakesh Bedi) and Jai (Ravi Baswani) at Delhi University, who don’t go home during summer vacation and how a girl Neha (Deepti Naval) comes in their life. (from wikipedia)

I had posted a scene from the movie earlier in Scene of the Week thread.

    It was a wow movie. Rt from the first scene, ,that of a coconut shell being used as a makeshift ash tray (the phate haal state of students away from home), with a sad ghazal as the backdrop.

      I probably never paid attention to the coconut shell being used as a makeshift ash tray. Thanks for pointing that out.

      The opening credits are great too – the male hands make way for the female hands for the Director Sai Paranjpye’s credit.
