Re-make of Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights"

Author: The Court Clown from Los Angeles
27 July 2004

I watched Sunayana in 1980 or so. And at that time, the movie impressed me. Both Naseeruddin Shah and Rameshwari acted well; the music was good too. Like all other Rajashri Productions movies, this too was an enjoyable movie.

But later I came to know that this was not an original idea, but rather a remake of Chaplin's City Lights. However, this is not the first time it happened that a movie was made in Hindi without any reference to the original one (I may be wrong about this point, because, as I said, I watched this movie almost 25 years ago!); another case in point in "Bombai Ka Babu", which was wholly based on O'Henry's short story "The Double-dyed Deceiver", except for the character of Suchitra Sen.
