Bollywood Mondays: 'Deewaar' (1975)October 8, 2:30pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Marine Sciences Building Room 100
By 1975, the year that Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declared â€˜The Emergency,â€™ India had found itself a new hero. In classic films like 'Sholay' (Flames) and 'Deewaar' (The Wall), Amitabh Bachchanâ€™s â€˜angry young manâ€™ characters raged against a corrupt system in an unjust world.
'Deewaar' tells the story of two brothers who choose different life paths, set against the unrest and struggles of life in 1970s Bombay. The younger, Ravi (superstar Shashi Kapoor), becomes a police office. The elder, Vijay (megastar Bachchan), trades in the futility of his dockyard job to take up smuggling. Holding the family together is the brothersâ€™ shared love for their widowed mother (Nirupa Roy). Featuring plenty of romance, dhishoom dhishoom (fisticuffs), and funky 1970s shtyle, 'Deewaar' ranks among the most influential Bollywood movies of all time.
This is the sixth movie in the 16th UH Bollywood film series, running every Monday this fall. For a copy of the full semester film series schedule, please see the contact information below.
Free and open to the public.
