Crossposted from my blog. Happy new year to you all! 2010 is here, so I guess I need to get my act together otherwise I’ll still be publishing my 2009 lists in march 2010!! (Which is not as rare as it should be, because there is always some potentially good movie from previous year that I don’t get to see till well into the next year).

Marathi cinema saw its most glorious days in the 60s and 70s, with some great films like Shyamchi Ayi and Tukaram being made. Some of these are difficult to procure on You Tube, so I’m offering a small glimpse of what this regional cinema entails starting with the 70s.

There have always been plenty of stories about Kishoreda â€” from his genius to his eccentricities.

Out of all the colourful Kishore Kumar stories that the film industry rolled out, Ashok Kumarâ€™s were the most intimate and interesting ones. Of course, there was always that touch of almost parental affection that Ashok Kumar brought to his narrations because there was a two-decade gap between the two brothers.
