Bollywood on Streaming

Tunnu Ki Tina


A very simple story of a Chaal in Bombay. A young boy with his fantasies for college girls and life. A college stylo, a silent lover and neighbour. Sometimes very sweet moments of affection and a few times, drama of a typical middle class family.

The Sword and the Flute

Uses Indian music and Moghul and Rajput miniature paintings in presenting four facets in the the thinking of India: the courtly life during the reign of the Turkoman Muslim conqueror Emperor Akbar; the saintly life of the yogin and the respect shown the true ascetic; the spiritual meaning of romantic love between man and woman; and the adored divine bridegroom, which is one of the symbols as represented by the Lord Krishna.
