A SILENT Shout – Nishabd



* Piece from RGV Blog

One day when I went to meet Mr.Bachchan in his office on a prior appointment he arrived a little late and told me that he got tied up in some work to do with a film called “Cheeni Kum”. I asked him what that film was about and he said that it is a love story between an older man and a young girl. I asked him who the girl was and he said Tabu. I asked him how can be Tabu called young. If the girl should be young she should be very young, not more than 18years old. The seed of Nishabd was sown there. 

I didn’t know much about the story of “Cheeni Kum” except for that it was a light hearted entertainer and I was very excited about the possibilities of doing a dark love story between a 60year old man and an 18year old girl and in the course of it to lay bare the fragility of human relationships.

  1. Thanks much for this nicely written entry.

  2. There is scene in the movie at the dinner table when jiah starts pricking amitji’s leg under the table. Initially he gets shocked and later starts laughing like mad. The back ground music at that stage made me think that he might be embarrassed and scold her..

    Somehow I think that scene did not come out well..Nobody could understand why amitji was laughing that much…Whats so funny in that?
