Old Time Indian Movies (the Promise) by monie0078(f): 1:46am On Feb 08, 2006
Ok, does anyone remember 'The Promise'? The Indian movie with Sunita and Vikram? The plot of the movie revolved around their romance, and how his mom disliked her? Then they (Sunita and Vikram) got into a car accident which caused her to undergo plastic surgery? Anyway, I remember being in love with that movie way back in the day... I actually just bought it last week. I ordered it from some store online that sells all kinds of Indian movies... it came in the mail last night... It was awesome... The guy sent me this long list of movies that he has available at his store... the next one I ordered was Gazaab... Anyway, I'll stop now... I'm just feeling incredibly nostalgic right now...

i really enjoyed the promise. my family friend lent me the movie and i don't remember returning it. i used to watch it like everyday. i was in primary school then. one day it got trapped in the video player and was spoilt. remember jamina or is it snake girl.

The part that got me crying was when they reunited in front of that goddess with thier pet symbol ([b]ten-ten[/b]nish). That sent goose pimples all over me. I love that movie.

Wow. I have to agree with you guys. It's great. Let's admit that the Indians are awesome storytellers. Besides Gazaab, I also have 'Amar Akubar, Anthony on back order, and I'm trying to get burning train... The guy is trying to convince me to get the new ones, but I'll get all the old ones first. He restores them and puts them on DVD, so the quality is great. Plus it's not that expensive either. It costs $6.95 for each one... not bad at all. Hey, has anyone seen #10: 'Desi numberi'? (I know, terrible misspelling) I might be getting that one next... I know they're not popular anymore... it'd just be great to have them in my collection, you know? Watch them anytime I want... lol.. movies of my childhood... Let's wait and see sha...

what is the name of the "Jamina" movie?
Re: Old Time Indian Movies (the Promise) by ilugunboy(m): 9:01am On Oct 29, 2008
@monie0078,

When you mentioned that film "the promise" or "yah varda raha", memories just kept flooding back. It's one movie that can bring that type of feeling to me, the other is an American called "Diamond Mercenaries" very old film indeed, but the plots are etched in my memory.

The "snake girl" movie is Najin.

Lmao sisi, my mom LOVES the Dus Numbri song. She still sings it every now and then. Very weird woman. tongue

My favorite songs are from

Mard
Sholay
Najin
Mother India.
Re: Old Time Indian Movies (the Promise) by KarmaMod(f): 6:59am On Nov 02, 2008
na na. The saddest song ever is from Chatal Chtal Katai, I think that's the title

It's the movie where the dude owns an elephant from his childhood and his horrid wife makes him believe the elephant wants to kill their baby. The elephant gets shot in the end while trying to save their damn baby. There's a song that plays with the scene that sincerely makes me teary eyed.
Re: Old Time Indian Movies (the Promise) by BabyJinx: 7:15am On Nov 02, 2008
Oh my goodness just saw Sholay. . . the happy version, don't think I can watch the sad, slow one (after the friend died)

Sholay or as I like to call it, Bromance in its finest

Re: Old Time Indian Movies (the Promise) by KarmaMod(f): 7:38am On Nov 02, 2008
I havent seen her daughter  but Hema's amazing beautiful. The woman that played Nagin was ridiculously gorgeous too. don't understand how lone women can have all that beauty.

Favorite song from Seeta Aur Geeta

Re: Old Time Indian Movies (the Promise) by KarmaMod(f): 8:01am On Nov 02, 2008
Yep definitely looks like her mom. Lucky girl. smiley

Im watching that Najin song and seriously her bloody husband brought death on himself. Why would he change to snake form while she was still in human form. The poor dudes thought they were saving her Bottom.
Re: Old Time Indian Movies (the Promise) by BabyJinx: 8:13am On Nov 02, 2008
Ooooh, this darn song sends a chill down my spine, see the way she finished them all one by one. . . No wonder momma calls bad women  Nagin.
