Before October, love and illness meet in these films


Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in My Name is Khan. The film is about Mili, who suffers from a disease called pernicious anemia. The film was directed by Revathi and boats of a credible performance by Shilpa. A still from the movie Margarita with a Straw. There are quite a few Hindi movies that have played with the popular film tropes, sometimes to great success. And very soon, we will see Shoojit Sircar’s romantic drama October, dealing with the same issues. The movie follows her journey as she struggles with her circumstances to find love. Reportedly inspired by true events, the film received critical acclaim for dealing sensitively with AIDS. The movie deals with two kinds of love, the romantic sort, and the familial love. Karan Johar’s 2010 film My Name is Khan was another movie that played with the subjects of love and illness. Related News

A little twist here, what with love leading to illness–a complete destruction of the liver. And it did so with a bang. Mili meets the alcoholic Shekhar (played by Amitabh Bachchan) and things take a starry turn. The premise of the movie is set in the late 80s when AIDS was much more of a taboo than it is now. And towards the end of the movie, we see the two make a trip abroad to get Mili treated. The film starred SRK and Kajol in the lead, and after its release broke several box office records. At least that is what the trailer suggests. Mili starred Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles. The trend seems to be on the rise in the industry, especially if one takes the past few years into account. 2018-04-11T07:16:36+05:30″>

Love and illness are two tropes that Bollywood has used quite a bit in films. Remember the 1975 film Mili? Years later, Farhan Akhtar played Karthik Narayan, a man with a dissociative personality disorder in the movie Karthik Calling Karthik. In the 2004 film Phir Milenge, Salman Khan plays a character who has AIDS, who after a one-night-stand with Shilpa Shetty’s character, ends up transferring his unfortunate fate to the latter. The performances of both Deepika Padukone and Farhan were convincing enough, and with a decent script at hand, the film delivered. However, one of the films that one can’t help but discuss in such a piece is Onir’s wonderfully made My Brother…Nikhil. Shekhar falls hard for the girl with the cheerful attitude. But Indian filmmakers have been exploiting the ‘genre’ for a considerable amount of time. More recently, in 2014, Kalki Koechlin’s Margarita with a Straw earned quite the acclaim, thanks to great performances and the film’s screenplay.
