07/17/2016 Bollywood Classics Series: "Umrao Jaan" Central East $1 - $9

Our series presents films that influenced the genre as it developed from the 1960s to the present day. Beginning and ending in the golden age of Mughal emperor Akbar, it also showcases the arts and histories of Muslim civilizations. Discover why Bollywood actress Rekha won accolades for her performance in this classic adaptation of Mirza Hadi Ruswa's 1905 novel! Kidnapped from her family and sold to a brothel, Umrao Jaan becomes a cultured woman able to read, write, dance, and sing — yet her past continues to entrap her. Her loves and many losses are the emotional centre of this film, which features the memorable song “Yeh kya jagah hai doston?” (What kind of place is this, friends?).
