Thanks so much for taking part! I totally agree with you. The Mosfilm color in their classic titles is wonderful, especially to eyes that are accustomed to the candy-colored Hollywood Technicolor.

"Cafe Tibet biscuits communication" is a wonderful line! I intend to quote it everywhere.

The contrast is so evident even in those two clips of Padmini -- Raj Kapoor had a way with colour, but it's still so different from the Mosfilm clip.

I enjoy how your blogathons point me in some interesting directions, and get me thinking along new lines. :-)

Silver Screenings

I am learning a lot of things with this blogathon, and your post is another example of that. I had NO idea that there were Soviet-Indian co-productions, and the films sound really interesting. Thanks for this background info, and for some new titles to add to my must-watch list! :)

Joe Thompson

I did not know that Raj Kapoor had done a co-production with the Soviets. I agree with the others who have commented on the beautiful colors. Thank you for providing a version with subtitles. I'm looking forward to it. Thank you for sharing with all of us.
