Bawarchi (1972)

Filed under: Attitude,General,JustforFun,Movie — ramsblog @ 12:02 am

We watched a Hindi movie titled “Bawarchi” on TV  this evening. I had heard of this movie long time ago but had never watched it before. It was starred by Rajesh Khanna, is a real funny movie with a same amount of people involvement and a story around a big family staying together where a cook gets involved with the family and helps them refine their personalities and understand each other.

How many times have you gone to a seminar or a personal development class and realized, “Oh! I already knew this”  “oh! looks like nothing new, and I know most of these” and yet, deep inside you hear “hmm.. I knew but haven’t been behaving that way”.  So we realize our inner personalities and regain the faded talents. We then polish those traits and make it better to set and uphold our personal brand.

I liked what the character said at the end of the play: “All I did was to help them refine/re-shine their own personal characteristics and understand each other within a family”

It was a great movie over all…

We also noticed something interesting.

1. There was a scene where a bunch of teachers read out the news paper and comment “Is there anything other than murders, thefts, etc on this newspaper?” well, this movie was made in 1972 (about 36years ago). Now, Fast forward 36 years, take out any general news paper and read the headlines (exception financial and sports magazines), and is there a day where there was no murders, no thefts, no harassment discussed? So this has been the same 35years ago and it is the same today. I know we often say, those days were golden, those days were great, blah blah blah. But I just realized, there are certain things that never change.

2. There was another scene where an eldest of the family (Head of household) says, “in our times, we used to wake up as early as 5:30am and get lot of things done, people of this age don’t realize and not wake up until 10am” –> fast forward 36years, how many times have you heard this or similar lately?
