Silsila is Shringar Rassa, Chupke Chupke is Hasya Rassa – Day 1896

By 13 October, 2020Uncategorized

Shringar Rassa is a part of Indian culture and cinema and no matter what character the hero plays, romance and song are part of his projection. Two important films on the subject of romance include Kabhi Kabhie and Silsila.

In the former, the lovers depart voluntarily and while Raakhee leads a happy marriage with Shashi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan is a bitter man even though married to a wonderful wife, Waheeda Rehman.

In Silsila, circumstances separate the lovers, time brings them together again but only tentatively and the dreams die again. Both these films had magical moments.

There are innumerable examples of Hasya Rassa in Bachchan movies because comedy was part of his persona and four films that stand out are, Amar Akbar Anthony for the drunkard scene, Mr Natwarlal for a hilarious sequence with his bhiya -bhabhi, Chupke Chupke even though Dharmendra and Sharmila Tagore had better roles and Do aur Do Paanch for the plot and the characters.
