Niravan (Nazir Hussain), the village postmaster receives an envelope with a cheque for a very large amount, with the instructions that he is to turn this cheque over to the most honest man in the village. Honest Niravan calls a village meeting and informs them of this outcome. They mutually agree that there are five people in the village who can be called honest, however, since the stipulation states that the amount is to be turned to only one, they decide to hold elections in the village, so that everyone can decide who the most honest man is. The outcome is hilarious as all the five prominent people bend over backwards not only to be honest and caring, but also be seen to be honest and caring. The village doctor starts treating all patients regardless of their ability to pay him; the village money-lender starts forgiving loans; the wealthy zamindar allows everyone to drink water from his property; the village priest allows the untouchables to worship in the temple. Can these people ...

Review :

An excellent family movie, with all the ingredients

Like any typical Hindi movie this one too has a hero and heroin and a love story, but that is where the similarities end and the movie stops becoming stereotypical. This movie has a real lot to offer. It is amazing. The characters have depth (not cardboard, like most commercial films). The story line is complex, there is humor, drama, mystery, and a beautiful love story all intertwined. The complexities of human behavior are explored in a truly entertaining manner, within the context of a tiny scenic village somewhere in India.

What is more there is a lovely song as well. The mystery letter keeps us on our toes till the end. People when tempted will display their true colors and it the movie reveals it (even if it is black and white). It is wholesome entertainment for family with high school kids.

Review :

Too Hollywood

Having seen Brother Sun Sister Moon, and Francisco, this 1961 version of the story of St. Francis pales next to the other two.

It looked like something from Disney: all primary colored costumes, healthy looking, rosy-cheeked Middle Ages citizens of Assisi, smiling as if they hadn't a care in the world. What were the producers thinking?! There was a little more history in this version though, including Francis' visit to Jerusalem, and his meeting with the Sulton. While the story was certainly comprehensive than Brother Sun Sister Moon, I prefer the latter even with Donovan's soundtrack, which I'm getting used to since I bought the video! Bradford Dillman did a fair job, but Dolores Hart with her teased, helmet-head sprayed hair looked very out of place, sad to say. A lean Stuart Whitman as Paolo played a major part and helped carry the film. I was tempted to not watch the whole thing, but I gave in. If you are a St. Francis admirer you'll watch it and learn a few more things about this remarkable man.

Review :

D'Autres Vies

Alexandre Astruc ditches his former "camera pen " style which spawned memorable efforts such as D'Aurevilly's "Le Rideau Cramoisi" and Maupassant's "Une Vie" . "Education Sentimentale" finds the director succumbing to the Nouvelle Vague vices :hollow characters, loose screenplay ,"deep" "serious" "meaningful " conversations,self-centred persons who do not even realize there is a world outside.

Freely adapted from Gustave Flaubert ,Astruc -who brilliantly succeeded in adapting Maupassant - made the same mistake as Vadim filming "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" :transposing a work from another century to his era .In the sixties ,a story which was absorbing one hundred years before may become banal ,as common as any (platonic or not)adulterous relations .

Well acted by Brialy,Auclair and Nat,but it is not enough ;it's boring.

Winded, but the last half hour is a MUST

This movie is long, talky and winded, but there are some wonderful performances. And, the last scene with Bette Davis (can't say more for fear of divulging too much) is a marvel. Deeply moving and Davis is luminous. All of the talk, talk, talk is worth the look on Davis' face at the end of the film. Enjoy it, warts and all.

Review :

Two men and a group of children try to escape the wrath of an island volcano

This film has been firmly entrenched in my mind since i first saw it in 1974 at the age of seven. I have often thought about it, sometimes forgetting the title, but never forgetting the horror i felt at seeing the explosions and the flowing lava, and feeling the panic of the characters. Man's insignificance and helplessness against mother nature is portrayed with a sense of evil; Not unlike lord of the Flies. Every now and then, it has been replayed on TV, so i have watched it again and refreshed my memory. Even though older now, and more Desensitised to that type of stuff i have enjoyed reflecting as i watch it again. I feel that it set a standard for others to come, with a mixture of suspense, heroism and tragedy that certainly leaves no punches pulled.

Review :

Roy Rogers meets Luis Bunuel

A right tedious hunk of celluloid, celebrating 4-H smalltown virtue in the saga of Tommy Jo and Champy. TJ is the titular tomboy, who weasels her way into a bull-wrestling contest only to bring the belligerent Champy back to her poor parents' farm, attempt to raise him to be a nice prize-worthy bull, and to learn the lessons of dedication and perseverence that lead to...aww, but I couldn't spoil the surprise! The defiantly rural outlook of this thing is easy to laugh at but is actually kind of fascinatingly unique; most of the time these values are celebrated only in retrospect. Which is certainly not to make any claims for competence here, because the good memories come from the howlers; like whenever anybody touches a piece of music, especially the jocular bouncing organist; or when Tommy Jo recovers from polio in about five minutes. But then she gets pneumonia! Which leads us to the capper, a sentimental hospital-bed reunion stolen directly from "L'Age D'Or". Ben Johnson's in there too, and so, playing himself, is Rex Allen the narrator of "Chickenomics" himself!
