The full lineup for Channel 4’s Autumn 2013 Bollywood season

Pakeezah Bollywood film posterFollowing last month’s sneak peak at Channel 4’s Autumn Bollywood season I now have the full list of films that will be shown thanks to Hypen Films.

Fittingly heavy on the classics, given this year’s centenary of Indian film, it makes for mouth-watering reading and my next post will have the first films and screen times Channel 4 have confirmed.

Of particular interest are the hard-to-find films Duniya Na Mane
(1937), Sant Tukaram (1936), Andaaz (1949) and – in a restored print – Pakeezah (1972). I’m really looking forward to the last of those, having heard either Raj or Pablo mention it many a time on the radio.

Also present will be the two anticipated documentaries. Celluloid Man – a portrait of indian film historian and archivist, P.K. Nair, made to mark the centenary of Indian cinema, and a portrait of India’s most famous playback singer, Lata In Her Own Voice.

  2. Can anyone tell me why Thursday’s showing of Chaudhvin Ka Chand was broadcasted in such poor quality with the picture constantly jumping and skipping when my DVD copy is 10 times as clear? It was like watching and listening to a badly warped vinyl record.

    • Curious – I don’t recall it being a particularly bad print the last time it was screened, but I’ve not got around to watching this year’s showing yet.
